Eastern Market Geoglyph Fall 2015 - Spring 2016 Professors Andrew Zago and Julia Di Castri


This project is a set of grids: A thick “Nazca Line” style grid, a wonky grid that’s both rigid and droopy, and a regular grid that’s only tangentially related to the overall composition, which together creates a new nucleus for the Eastern Market neighborhood of Detroit that awkwardly incorporates itself into local infrastructure and shifts and decentralizes the Eastern Market area. The project is both based on and subverts late modern civic building typology; urban complexes that create their own ground, separate from its surroundings, that contains multiple iconic buildings in tension with each other and defining the enclosed public space. The landscape of the project creates new ground that simultaneously isolates it from and connects it to the surrounding area. The project is anchored around 2 buildings, a Library and a “Double” Office Tower, which contains both traditional office and “officetel” workspaces. A wonky grid that echoes the facade of the Library lazily droops onto the building and over the site, with space underneath it being used as a large covered market that connects with the row of existing market halls. The gird of the office tower continues onto the ground, defining and expanding the new market areas. A flat regular grid, extruded into a warehouse, lies on the northeast corner of the project.


Because of the lack of a major built context on the given site, the project expands as a geoglyphic graphic, seeking out to create tension. As the graphic “Nazca Line� grid expands over the Eastern Market, it both creates new ground for the new buildings and weaves into the surrounding urban fabric, trapping nearby buildings into its own system with ruthless indifference. The lines connect with existing blocks, closing off roads and redirecting nearby traffic to an existing central parking garage, and also connect to the flat building across the Dequindre Cut, which allows the building to act as indirect programatic and formal support for the project. The geoglyph acts as and breaks the idea of the late modernist platform. It creates new ground on which to place the new buildings and defines new land that claims and redefines the eastern market area.

Burma-Shave on LSD Spring 2015 Professors Sarah Dunn and Sean Lally


Burma-Shave on LSD sits within the intersection of I-55 and Lake Shore Drive. The Hospital, Hotel and Spa functions of the complex are housed in towers, which recall the forms of buildings of that typology within Chicago. These Chicago-forms integrate themselves into the site by stranding from their bases and dividing their footprints, imitating the sweeping geometry of the underlying interchange. Drivers passing through the interchange are essentially driving through a giant building-scale sign, with each tower advertising its function, in the language of Chicago architecture, working similarly to drive-by Burma-Shave ads. The strands intersect above the interchange and the public programs of each tower mix together, creating unexpected adjacencies that mix health and leisure.

Ivory Tower(s) Fall 2013 Professor Stewart Hicks Honorable Mention, UIC Year End Show 2014


Orange Dots 101 w/ Drew Stanley Fall 2015 Professor Sean Lally


While advancements in technology have led to a greater multitude of leisure possibilities, this increase in technology (we check our cell phones over 200 times a day) has led to the reduction of once-necessary dedicated leisure space. This ultimately reduces the impact local has on leisure as we have become over-saturated with everything global all of the time. This proposal seeks to tweeze out aspects of this technological saturation and refine it to establish a local system of inherent opportunities, resulting in a new dedicated leisure space of local proportions. A new public space with a literal connective tissue enables users of varying technological abilities to come together and experience the same activity in their own personal way. Those unconnected to the system may recognize the environment as a familiar set of activities and events, while those that are connected may nd themselves eating more food than the human body is capable of or listening to what a traditional painting has to say.


Wifi Balloons

Floating hotspots that provide the greater infrastructure for the landscape, and project a local, isolated network to foster more local (but still electronic) communication.


Matchmakers

Local network interface that matches people based on shared interests and topics of discussion, a physical manifestation of an internet forum.

Scenario 1: Overcast Spring Tuesday Lunchtime

Activated by small events and ephemeral moments, an overcast spring Tuesday lunchtime is somewhat sparse, more likely to have people passing through or momentarily stopping by, instead of hanging around for extended periods of time. Small events typically consist of lunch crowds of 1-4 people per group (mostly white collar working class), consisting of local business men and women, construction workers, and students who are able to find 30-45 minutes away from their place of employment to engage in a social (or isolated) moment of cuisine, or even just a moment of decompression from work.


Scenario 2: Sunny Summer Saturday Afternoon

Activated by mostly large and small events, a sunny summer Saturday afternoon has a heavy influx of tourists and local residents attending a multitude of typical Chicago activities. A music festival brings an array of local and visiting teenagers, adults, hippies, ravers, drunks, Instagram addicts, freelance pharmacist, etc. seeking social opportunities through loud music. A local baseball game, perhaps the Cubs, is being publicly broadcast and brings local and visiting bros, millionaires, dads, and sons seeking common ground through America’s past time. Paired with these larger events, small events flutter nearby, consisting of yoga classes, running clubs, and crossfit training, bringing together local exercise enthusiasts, health advocates, or perhaps individuals recovering from external injuries.


Scenario 3: Clear Fall Tuesday Evening

Activated by mostly large and small events, a clear fall Tuesday evening brings sudden influxes of crowds due to events in a season which usually doesn’t draw many people outside. Tonight marks the opening tip off of the Bulls basketball season, bringing in disparate crowds to celebrate a once-in-a-year sporting event. An election night rally is also active, bringing together politically active users to simultaneously party and receive updated polling results. Smaller events linger around the park as well, driven mostly by the Chicago Architectural Foundation who is providing tours of the area.


Scenario 4: Snowy Winter Friday Night

Minimal activity, mostly small events and ephemeral moments, highlight a snowy winter Friday night as the park and the surrounding area have completely emptied out at the end of the work week. The final hours of a seasonal winter market are coming to an end, as vendors start closing up shop. Various types of snowcraft enter the site as recreational devices, plowing through stalker-attracting snowmen. The snow dampens most of the noise, ultimately creating an unsuspecting therapeutic setting for relaxation for those who brave the cold.


Contextualism or “The Beast of London Takes Root in Chicago” Fall 2015 Entry to the 2015 Burnham Prize Competition Selected for Display (No Award)


Chicago has been invaded by an archi-demon brought forth by the London-centric nature of contemporary english language architectural discourse. The massive mechanical beast uses its pseudo-local forms to attempt to disguise its presence. Clad in post-modern armor and shooting Monadnock-spire-spikes out of its back, it takes root in the Loop and begins to grow into architecture that is contextual to a fault. With an apparent resurgence in Prince Charle’s interest in architecture and London’s difficulty in integrating tall buildings with its views, fabric, and public image, there is a looming possibility of British problems leading to a mass social media push for urban strategies that are not, and have never been, appropriate for American cities. A return to “human proportions” means nothing to a city with disproportionate shoulders; bigness is our context.


Lift Lofts

Spring 2014 Professor Dan Wheeler

The typical Chicago two flat is just that; Too flat, lying across the site and restricting private exterior space. Lifting the mass of the building and orienting the units vertically frees the ground plane, allowing for a myriad of exterior conditions and programing..

Swedish Monumentality/ SmĂĽland House Fall 2014 Professors Penelope Dean and Grant Gibson Design Developement Professors Chris Frye and Ryan Palider


Swedish Monumentality


Combining the Client’s tastes for both custom furniture and generic Ikea pieces, the monumental furniture in this house is made up entirely of Ikea pieces and parts. The furniture takes on qualities of Ettore Sottsass / Memphis Group furniture, in which the furniture becomes architectural, pushing against the space while life occurs in the resulting nooks and crannies. The pieces become so large and all-encompassing that one piece is the equivalent of a room.

Longitudinal Section


The house is encompassed by a large roof that reaches down to the ground, and skylights are pitched up to highlight each piece of furniture. Shadows of the furniture are cast from several directions, and the overlapping results are expressed in a multi-faceted veneer pattern that reflects the geometry of each piece of furniture.

LUCY for a Stable Life w/ Drew Stanley Fall 2015 Professor Sean Lally

Safety comes in all shapes and sizes, but can generally be understood as a form of being protected from exposure to something that causes health, social, or economical issues. It’s expected that most would advocate for additional safety measures where possible, provided these elements did not interfere with everyday life. This LUCY proposal seeks not to provide supplemental security devices, but rather a set of information that a user can begin to consider and use to make decisions about their well-being. Whether the user is seeking to change their personal environment via physical, psychological, social, or financial conditions, LUCY can help guide them to safety.

3D Printed ABS Plastic Base 9V Battery


Barometric Pressure Sensor Level 1 - Atmospheric Engagement

1. Wearable barometer and clothes-implanted wind-speed measurers that allow for instinctive weather forecasting. 2. Implantable giger counter alerts user via nerve response when the user has been exposed to dangerous levels or radiation. 3. A glass filament for car windows that, when exposed to too much UV radiation, 4. expands to reduce the amount of UV rays that pass through the glass. 4. Modern-day suitaloon that, when deployed, protects the user from all atmospheric conditions and human emissions (carbon dioxide, dust, wi-fi, UV rays, etc.) and keeps them in a completely sterile, oxygen-loaded environment for up to 2 hours. 5. A voltage meter that can detect a lightning strike just milliseconds before striking a house or building, which then switches off the main power source temporarily to keep precious elements from short circuiting.


PIR Motion Sensor

Level 2 - Indirect Engagement

1. A device within the nervous system that lets the user know they are about to experience post-traumatic stress disorder, a warning of likely only milliseconds. 2. A device that can sense if a user will become depressed if they remain in their current sedentary situation (physical space), and suggests that they become active or change locations. 3. A gps-enabled chip implanted into your skin that sends and receives information to all of your bank accounts, so if a purchase is made outside of your current location you will be notified and the purchase can be flagged as fraudulent. 4. An algorithm that takes soundbites of everything a political candidate has ever said and determines if he or she is capable of running for a certain political position, and, could even encourage that person to run for a higher position of power.


Fast Vibration Switch

Level 3 - Indirect-Direct Engagement

1. An internally planted device that measures brain activity and can determine and inform the user if they are approaching peak emotional levels, such as depression, terror, anger, or joy. 2. A microphone that detects sound waves in abusive language that then informs a person if they are being verbally abused. 3. A device that can quantify the amount of shame that a person feels, which can then inform that user of their psychological situation. 4. Implanted body temperature monitor connected to an HVAC system that allows for local temperature change within a large space. 5. A security system that connects a homeowner to their dog, so that when their dog barks during a specific set time, the homeowner is awakened when the dog barks via nerve pulses whether they heard the bark or not.


Tilt Ball Switch

Level 4 - Direct Engagement

1. A Hard-Soft running track that can detect falls and quickly respond. 2. A polymer that, when worn, protects vital organs from being exposed to wi-fi signals. A hat or helmet is also encouraged. 3. Reactive armor skin activates during dangerous situations or sudden atmospheric changes. 4. Inert implanted neck brace that becomes rigid when an implanted / helmet-mounted gyroscope measures whiplash. 5. A fingerprint detector on a door knob/handle that, when turned on, will shock a person if their fingerprints do not match those that are approved. This will also alert the police.
