THE PARTS STUDIO

ARCH 3020 | Spring 2016 Professor Ed Ford

The studio explored the potentials of modular prefab design - heavily influenced by ‘Metabolist’ projects in the mid 20th century, with the goal of learning Revit and being comfortable in the software. Many of these projects incorporated a frame and unit, which work together for a desired aesthetic. Programs could vary from art schools to urban monasteries in the urban context of the Shockoe Bottom neighborhood in Richmond, VA. My project is a “dialogue driven” healing community which promotes a “sober living” lifestyle for those in recovery from adiction or illness.

Utilizing the Site The existing buildings on the site, which was previously a parking lot, allow for fluid circulation between the two building structures.

Understanding urban Fabric The location for the site is the Shockoe Bottom area of Richmond, VA. A histoic up and coming of neighborhood of the city. UP

Commercial Courtyard

The ground floor of the complex is meant for commerical use, allowing for more engagement with the surround urban streets + blocks.


Dialogue driven Living In the complex there are various modular units for different programs - residential, small dialogue and larger group dialgoue.

TATIANA LAHERA KALAINOFF | 2017 Portfolio

Module Connections The sober living community is constructed out of Cross Laminated Timber, both the frame and the unit. The frame is a ‘shelf’ system, where ‘tabs’ emerge from the long corridor axis and are able to secure the units on top and bottom.

10

CLT Connection Detail These tabs allow room for plumbing and utilities with the added beam system. This way the units are not cantilevering but are being ‘pinched’ on the corridor side.


Corridor Facade

Street Facade

The corridor facade allows for a private of the residential unit, letting natural light in through long vertical clerestories.

The street facade allows for a public side, using windows to bring in natural light into the common spaces of the residential units.

Experience in Section The two U-shaped structures allow for exciting exterior communal spaces. The courtyards allow for a vertical emphasis visually, while the wings of the complex allow for a visual horizontal emphasis in their facades. 01 THE PARTS STUDIO

From the STreet The building allows for more interaction on the urban street front due to the programming of the ground floor.

Occupying Architecture

ARCH 1020 | Spring 2014 Professor Megan Suau Partner David Willson

Design a pod that you will then live in for 24 hours (including overnight) on the North Terrace of Campbell Hall, UVA’s architecture building. The pod should be made from only two materials and should focus on creating modules and joints from said materials. The two materials used to create the U-Mod were used/ broken/old umbrellas and zip-ties. The U-mod transforms umbrellas into a structure where people aren’t quite sure at first what it is they are looking at and what one ‘material’ was chosen to construct it.

15


TATIANA LAHERA KALAINOFF | 2017 Portfolio

Umbrella Deconstruction The intention of the U-Mod is to deconstruct the form of an umbrella and use its parts in a different way, rather than use an umbrella’s inherent structural qualities.

Material Procurement

Material Connection

A graphic representation of how, how many, where from, from who and types of umbrellas were acquired in order to constuct the U-Mod.

From these frames a vital ‘X’ module can be created and linked together using zip-ties. The poles can be detached from the frame and connected together in order to provide additional structural support. The poles that remain attached to the frame help ground the structure at it’s base.

16


SKin to Skeleton Visually, the U-Mod will have the same geometrical essence of an umbrella and the deconstructed parts of the umbrellas will create one big umbrella re-envisioned as an inhabitable structure. The aluminum frame of an umbrella works well under tension when in partner with its skin, typically made of nylon or a form of treated polyester. Without its skin the umbrella frame becomes more malleable as a structure and can be manipulated in different ways. The skin reattached later to reinforce the new form.

The U-Mod will have two thresholds for entry/exit, one oriented to the interior of the borough and one oriented to the retaining wall on the edge of the borough. This provides access to more open and public spaces, while still maintaining a more private area inside the structure.

Grounding the Pod Umbrellas were chosen as a material, due to their structural qualities and aesthetics as well as their original intention of protecting a space from the elements of the site that could potentially inhibit the experience, such as rain or dew.

The structural system of our construction is heavy timber. It correlates to the soil reports of the site and translates the existing structural language of Scottsville buildings. The gravity framing and lateral support is also done with wood framing. The floors are wood framing with beam-girder system. The beams are exposed on the interior.

3d Modeling + Visualization

ARCH 2710 | Fall 2014 Professor Earl Mark

The final V-Ray renders of a semester long project modeling a building of our choice in Rhino 5.0. The project allowed for analysis of 2D geometries, an understanding of 3D construction, an understanding of how to apply and create different materials for surfaces and how to create a rendered environment and atmosphere. An admirer of Zaha Hadid’s work, I choose her elegant design of the London Olympic Aquatic Center.

LEArning to See

ARCH 5800 | Summer 2016 Professors Charles Menefee & Teresa Gali Izard The Vicenza study abroad program serve students well that have the desire and drive to instigate or reinforce a fledgling practice of drawing as a means of seeing and interrogation. During the five week duration of the program the student generate drawings that expose aspects of the mostly built culture of this extraordinary consciously constructed landscape and will start a practice of drawing that will serve them in their designing of our coming world. Lines of connection follow keen observation. Relationships are determined following questioning. Questions start drawings. Drawing therefore is at the core of a designer’s work for it actively combines the processes of observation and considered positioning with the making of substantive marks. Without drawing, design as we know it does not happen. 33
