COLLABOR ATIVE INTERFACE BREWERY + BREWING SCHOOL LO C AT I O N : YEAR :

St. Louis, MO

2014

THE BREWING PROCESS OPERATES AT THE INTERFACE BETWEEN THE NATURAL AND THE SYNTHETIC

COLLABORATIVE INTERFACE EXPLORES THE POSSIBILITIES OF THE INDUSTRIAL BREWING PROCESS AS AN ARCHITECTURAL LANDSCAPE

4

In a brewery exists a juxtaposition of agriculture, science, industrial process, and the human quality of enjoying a drink with friends. This project investigates the interface of these natural and industrial processes in an attempt to create an architecture that supports and advances their integration. The great St. Louis breweries of the last century contributed both to the city’s industrial success and its cultural atmosphere. This heritage still remains and the local beer culture is growing--since 2010 more breweries have opened here than in the previous two decades combined. The site for this project exists at an intersection of infrastructural components, providing for the opportunity to explore the cultural, economic, and historic role of the brewery within the broader context of St. Louis today. Collaborative Interface focuses on advancing an architectural typology that embodies and celebrates the natural and industrial process of beer making as an architectural landscape, creating an atmosphere of collaboration between process, occupant, and architecture.

WAYS OF THINKING ABOUT THE BREWERY

all inputs and outputs as well as programs reside withion one large, indeterminate space. none are apparent from the exterior. this is the typical industrial brewery

EXPOSED

inputs and ouputs weave across a site where individual programs are split apar t into separate experiences

HYBRID

programs exist together within one space, but are pulled apar t to expose process. transparency of the enclosure helps to tie the brewery to the surrounding context and create a dialogue with the community

The science of building operates at the interface of natural and synthetic similarly to the brewing process. The experience of the Brewery aims to create a sense of both wonder and understanding of the architectural landscape of the project. Just as the entire brewing operation is brought into the zone of experience, the materials and methods of construction of the space are an integral componet of the overall understanding of the process and of the space. Unique structural solutions are applied where it was necessary to accomplish the architectural goal.

Right now, I have to drive to get to a grocery store. I’d like fresh, local foods to be available near my family and I.

I want a park in my neighborhood where I can walk my dog each morning.

We need more jobs, to help bring economic growth and prosperity back to Corktown.

I would love to see a strengthened sense of community in Corktown.

RESIDENT’S VOICES

COMMUNITY

URBAN DEVELOPMENT + INFRASTRUCTURE

Corktown is one of the oldest and most established neighborhoods in Detroit. Originally home to Irish immigrants, it has evolved into a multi-cultural neighborhood with a growing sense of community spirit. Its location on Michigan Ave and its proximity to downtown Detroit make it a zone ripe for community enhancement in SW Detroit. However, the construction of the Fisher Freeway decreased the amount of vehicular and pedestrian traffic in the area. This coupled with Detroit’s economic downturn and depopulation has left the once-bustling neighborhood sparse, and access to basic resources and economic oppor tunity for the residents has fallen. The people of Cork town need sustainable access to nutritional food as well as steady jobs, economic grow th, and ways to strenghten community ties. Our holistic proposal brings food, technology, excersize, knowledge, commuting, and social interaction together in a long-term solution that addresses how current and future community members live and work.

Land Banking strategies are used on unprogrammed lots to create urban density and maintain the use of the space until the spaces can be developed. These temporary structures utilize local rubble collected from demolished buildings encased in a wire structure to provide mass. The structures are simple to construct and easily altered and configured.

INP U TS / O U T P U TS Detroit [FEED]back is all about the cycle of resources. The project takes waste and conver ts it to energy in the anaerobic digester. It also harvests energy from the sun with a PV array. This energy is used to produce food in the fishery and on the farm, which is then sold to the community. The waste from those goods returns to the site, and the cycle begins again.

PROMENADE

As a retail center, the old depot becomes a cultural anchor for Michigan Avenue and Corktown as a community. Locally-owned businesses perpetuate economic growth and turn Corktown into a new shopping destination in the larger Detroit region.

A reinvigorated Michigan Avenue is the center of a transpor tation network involving pedestrians, bicycles, cars, buses, and a trolley system. The network extends in all directions away from Corktown and into the surrounding communities as a component of the loop of feeback.

TROLLEY STOP

COMMUNITY GATHERING

A trolley stop directly on the Idea Center site ensures easy access to this new hub of knowledge, bringing both visitors and residents alike into the new development. A cafe eases the transition from the street.

The expansive greenspace on the site is a place of gathering and recreation. Par ts of the urban farm operation are woven into occupiable space, providing more oppor tunities for learning and immersion. An amphitheatre creates a large public venue in Corktown.


THE IDEA CENTER The Idea Center is a community classroom; a place for the exchange of ideas and information. A lecture hall provides a place of gathering, a library a place for study. The herbarium maintains a catalogue of all plant life that flourishes in the Detroit and surrounding

area. The exhibit space shown here fosters an interactive learning environment where young and old alike can explore various urban farming techniques while learning about the benefits of sustainable food sources in the changing urban environment.


T HE G R EENH O U S E The Greenhouse is the indoor, year-round component of the urban farm. The structure provides an interactive investigation into sustainable food production. The Greenhouse also houses a hydroponic fishery, which raises fish for food while providing the plants with a renewable

source of nutrients on-site. Along with the outdoor farming operation, enough food is produced here to provide supplemental nutrition to Corktown and its surrounding neighborhoods. Community classrooms overlook the space to maintain a constant connection this learning space. DETROIT [FEED]BACK

the new building could in some way capture the impermanent beauty of a changing thing found within the old building

a fleeting reflection in one of the windows is used a template to translate one moment in the building’s past life into its new existence

the new building could stand out in form and presence while still referencing the contextual and urban issues accounted for and created by the old builing

the corner entrance is reinterpreted without a column, and serves as the entry to the retail space within. the openness of the ground level is maintained to encourage the window shopping of italian culture iterative sketches

JUNCTURE OF FLAMINIA RESIDENTIAL TOWER + AQUATIC COMPLEX LO C AT I O N : YEAR :

Rome, Italy

2011

The neighborhood of Flaminia in Rome is transforming into a quickly developing zone for new architecture. The site rests at a point of juncture that is a potential growth zone for the city of Rome. The Punta della Musica bridge on the site connects the neighborhoods across the Tiber river with the historic city of Rome. We propose to celebrate this new connection by framing the bridge with new developments that will encourage fur ther growth. Two residential towers create this frame, cradling a space between them and providing an anchor for the surrounding site. While this was a group project, the work displayed here was completed by the author.

Def ined by the surrounding pools, the south tower provides a juncture of living and leisure. A folding plane creates a beach for the primary community pool and contains the space below, a pool for the spectacle of competition. In the restaurant + lounge a unique experience is created by the visual connection to the adjacent pool. On the waterfront, the relationship with light is rediscovered through the f loating transluscent bottom of the pool above. Opening to the Tiber, a seasonal riverpool bridges the gap between the natural and manmade.

THREE LINES IN THE DESERT HOUSE FOR AN AVIATOR AND A SWIMMER LO C AT I O N : YEAR :

West Texas

2013

This project explores the architectural promise and premise of the horizon as spacemaker in a boundless zone of experience. The investigation searches for substance in a horizon that is natural (landscape and sky) and manmade (building); a horizon that is quantified and measured as the distance between subject and object; a horizon that constructs volume in a dialogue with wall, cour tyard, and building. The program is a second home and escape for an ar t collecting couple. The wife is an astronomer and an aviator, her husband is an author and swimmer. Spaces for each of these interests and activies are set within the vast landscape. The sky is the ‘ground’ against which these figures are made, seen, and experienced, and there is no bigger sky than the sky of west Texas...

TECHNOLOGY / TECTONIC CONCEPTUAL RESPONSIVE FACADE LO C AT I O N : YEAR :

Abstract

2014

This enclosure system is parametrically variable and able to conform to any shape. It could be utilized as a sun screening system in a double-skin facade, capable of varying the amount of solar radiation used for lighting and heating by responding to real-time atmospheric conditions and building occupancy. Other variables that could be modified by the system include ventilation, visibility, and nighttime light pollution. The system is built off of a diagrid structure, where a series of butterfly-like panels can be fully opened to act as louvres and fully closed to provide an extra layer of rain and sun screening on the facade.
