High Line Extension Partner: Bobbie Behm Professor: Donna Cohen Six Weeks Design 7

As the High Line cuts through the Chelsea District in Manhattan, it becomes a relief from the urban density, The amphitheater provides an opportunity for a further extension of this relief. The block emulates the High Line which then becomes a series of viewing platforms. This begins to shape the programmatic spaces into a set of juxtaposing operations that connect to their counterparts through the design of common public spaces.

Intigued Wanderer Professor: Becky Walker Five Weeks Design 4

The desert landscape is a continuous surface with occasions of interruption. The intense sun and the vast nature of the desert landscape reveals desirable locations. The sight of an alluring destination to a roaming person gives them directions and pulls them in. The idea of a preferred location motivates the wanderer to follow his natural instincts and seek refuge. Although this construct is not a mirage, it incorporates the idea and slips into the horizon. Upon arrival you are lured into a gracious over hang that shelters a platform over looking the land artist sculpture

Light Displacement Professor: Dr. Lucky Tsaih One Week ET2

This lamp uses a pulley system that opens and closes the lampshade’s panels. The shade’s frame will be stationary and the fins are hinged to the frame. When activated, the top structure lowers into the shade displacing the panels. This action activates the shade to allow for a more textured subtle light. This will allow the person to concentrate the light when reading or flood the room for other activities. There is a handle to adjust the lighting condition located on the adjacent side of the bed.

Vertical Datum

Professor: Becky Walker Four Weeks Design 4 This vertical system has been infiltrated with a pathogen that runs throughout the body of the construct. The pathogen’s interaction with the different systems creates a vertical datum. The structure houses a dance company in an urban context. The intervention contains large scale performance, group practice and individual study spaces.

Horizontal Datum Professor: Martha Cohen Six Weeks Design 5

This boathouse was designed for the University of Florida’s crew team. The shell of a crew boat delicately balances within a horizontal datum of the water’s surface. This moment occurs between the suspended sky overhead and the mass of water beneath. The relationship is expressed in the recreation room, event space and the observation deck. In section,

the recreation room is nestled between the sunken outdoor event space and the observation deck that runs overhead. The dynamic relationship of these spaces creates a node for the rest of the complex to follow. The refined space and structure of the boathouse creates a place of rest for the boats. Openings in the back wall create a lit backdrop to highlight the boats.

The rise and fall of the environmental cycle conditions our diverse needs. The structure reflects this relationship and suspends the complex in order to meet the ground in a delicate fashion.

Studio Retreat

Professor: Lee-Su Huang One Week Advanced Digital

The exhausting nature of architecture school called for a structure that could be used as a relief from studio life. The organic nature contrasts the architecture building but responds to the spatial relationship of the atrium. This creates a peaceful shaded place for students to relax and take a break from studio life. The space could also be used for outdoor presentations. The Hammocks can be replaced with chairs and pin up boards can hang from the structure.

The slice was formed based on the angle of the sun to allow light to penetrate to the ground floor. The circulation is housed within the slice to promote daily social interactions for the residents. The base is comprised of retail, the mid section holds affordable micro units, and the upper portion is designated for multi-family units. Exterior public spaces join the adjacent programmatic spaces to establish a community between the different socio-economic classes.

Spectator - Spectacle Professor: Bradley Walters Twelve Weeks Design 6

One of the most diverse aspects in Charleston is the edge condition created by time, function, typologies and socio-economic classes. The median age of the residents in each block revealed that the northern part of the peninsula houses a younger population surrounded by a college and points of entertainment. This realm is more public, continuous and dense with fewer moments of interruptions and intersticial spaces. While the southern more private sector contains historical Single Charleston Houses, their arrangement creates a more porous typology.

The Charleston Center for Art will pull from both public and private spatial characteristics of Charleston. This will facilitate the private studios. In addition, this relationship will be complimentary to the public gallery, restaurant and theater. The monotonous nature of the surrounding building facades longs for a relief in the system. This center will bridge the gap between artist and art enthusiasts by creating a permeable edge condition between spectator and spectacle.
