Research Projects Naturally-Ventilated Facade Design for Hospitals in the Equatorial Climate

Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), in collaboration with the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) The final year project in the undergraduate studies at SUTD involved developing an innovative facade system for class C wards in hospitals in Singapore, proposing a new model typology to spark off facade ideas designed particularly for the equitorial region.

THE NEW PUBLIC GROUND: REDEFINING OUR RAIL INFRASTRUCTURE “ Our public infrastructures for transport appear as grey areas on the city map - they are big ugly boxes that cast shadows on the neighbours or block the views...

While the travel experience in our daily commute should be comfortable, enjoyable, safe and reliable, the overemphasis efficiency and convenience and the ubiquitous nature of the train station today have created a sense that such existing structures serve as mere architecture of function where inhabitants speed through them without any form of interaction with them. Given the high usage of the space by the public and their strategic location in most town centres, train stations should offer interesting social spaces for people to enjoy. This thesis aims to address three issues: 1.The identity of the train station and its role as a rail infrastructure in the context of a “City in a Garden”. 2. The rail infrastructure as a new form of public space 3. Recrafting the experience and access within and to the train station THE NEW PUBLIC GROUND | 7

The ground floor is intended to be an open and undefined space totally accessible to the public. A good public space should provide for many opportunities for “optional” and “resultant” activities to take place as urban design consultant John Gehl says. It consists of 5 zones: The Vista, The Meadow, The Garden, The Atrium and The Courts, to allow for varying qualities of spaces to accommodate for a plethora of activites that can happen within them.

Capstone Project (Academic Year 4 | Semester 2)

This was a Capstone project - a final year project working with students from other faculties as well as collaborating with an industry partner to embark on a research dealing with real-world problems. This project was one of the first studies to research on a hospital facade that strives to achieve natural ventilation while filtering out problems of wind-driven rain and haze. This is especially important for the equitorial region where tropical design is key. The project involved using simulation softwares to generate design iterations to tackle the technical issues, as well as the construction of a 1:2 prototype, before culminating in an overall design concept.

Temperature and Wind Tunnel Simulations We conducted temperature and wind tunnel simulations using DesignBuilder and Autodesk CFD respectively to analyze and improve on our designs. We studied the entry of wind through the facade as well as the movement of air as it propagates through the room. This was especially important for the conditions of a naturally-ventilated ward.


Daylighting Simulations DIVA plug-in was used in conjunction with Rhinoceros software to generate visualizations of lighting levels within the wards to observe the distribution of light in the interior spaces. The luminance levels of surfaces were also studied to analyze the conditions of glare and solar exposure which would consequently affect the comfort of the patients. | 31

The studio was comprised of 2 stages, with the first being site study as well as developing a creative approach towards conceptual design through investigations on contemporary art and vernacular architecture. The second stage involves developing a design for a site located at Kallang Riverside Park which is observed to be a calm and green zone admist the hustle and bustle of city life in its direct periphery. A programmatically-challenging combination of a library alongside active studio spaces were proposed to enhance this relationship of duality existing in the site context. The scheme plays with the arrangement of programmatic spaces and the architectural element of the column to mediate between outside and inside, active and contemplative, formal and informal, private and public.

The chosen site is a petroleum brownfield sandwiched between two green spaces that are rich in biodiversity, namely Labrador Nature Reserve and Berlayer Creek. Together with the southern waterfront edge, the site presents many challenges and opportunities for development. Following a series of studies on ecology, mobility and climate, we propose the use of phytoremediation as a strategy for phased development of the site. Moreover, to preserve the biodiversity of the mangrove, coastal structures that dissipate wave energy create a conducive environment for mangrove species to flourish. By employing a palette of functional ribbons that form civic, residential and commercial spaces, the development seeks to stitch the natural landscape back together through remediation and rehabilitation.

The tube house is a unique housing typology found in Vietnam. Due to spacial constraints, the tube house is tall, narrow and deep. Children are restrained due to the lack of running space. The lack of activity and connection to greenery is a problem faced by children in Vietnam. Concept: To create a fluidic environment with ample running space. Spaces flow into one another seamlessly and greenery is interspersed with the fluidic movement to create a constant connection to nature for the children. GREEN FLOW | 63

Singapore 50, asks for the design of a living repository, showcasing artifacts that shaped the country’s identity over its 50 years and provide insights to its possible future trajectory. The site is located in close proximity to Singapore’s Civic District and the Singapore River, an activity corridor that is well-used as a walking, running and cycling route, as well as for alfresco dining. Design intent: A journey through small pockets of spaces, each with a different composition of scale and light quality, to collectively offer a dynamic spatial museum experience.

The project asks for the design of a compact sport gym – a horizontal, effective structure for the student´s indoor sport activities at the Dover Campus. An outer frame structural system with a space frame system were adopted for the sports gym, creating a dynamic play of opacity and shadows. SPORTS GYM | 97

The project asked for the design of a “Living hub” – a vertical habitat structure for student´s container based habitat. Located close by the Dover campus site it is intended to design an appropriate vertical structure to offer standard 40” ISO – Containers a possibility to be vertically stacked in order to reduce land consumption. The structure itself is intended to be the carrier support for the containers to use them as flexible “drawers” – being substituted every 10 or 12 years.

The brief asked for the design of an optimized cladded canopy spanning 12m between two buildings that is 50m long. Concept: We were inspired by graphics and art depicting movement and the sense of rhythm and wanted to convey a similar sense of notion through a nuanced expression of human movement, involving undulation and gentle curves.

The brief called for the design of build a sculptural ceiling or partitioning structure using particle spring systems. Concept: A three-point support shell pavillion structure with perforations to allow for light to pass through. The tripartition structure interacts subtly with the existing light system, inducing a new way of occupying the space.
