EMPTY IN[FORM]ATION The aim of this thesis was to explore if the empty can be used to inspire the creation of architectural design. More and more information is generated through a connection of ourselves in any given environment. Through this project I explored the qualities of the empty and its compositional elements on a given site. This begins to be a synthesis of the quality of emptiness and the empty’s material that has the potential to generate information about the surface and creates a complexity of points, lines, and relationships.

This thesis project uses information to release form. The order of the different parts of a landscape can be converted to a tangled condition, stitched by vectors of behavioral and programmatic intensities to generate a shift in form and spatial quality creating an uniquely structured experience.

The work was designed through a number of methodologies and techniques. The primary method used in this project was the accumulation of the objects that are there and how they rest on the landscape relative to their distance from one another and as behavioral clusters of the entirety of the landscape. The data from the relationships that form are shifted and propelled by additional layers of data that are generated by temporal conditions on the landscape. The continuous process of mining for data within the landscape drives the design and architectural implementation of this project.

LOT 52 Barrio Logan’s Lot 52 Apartments are fixed in a narrow site. This narrow size allows for little to occur especially with the adjacent buildings. The units within the complex are designed to allow for daylighting and outdoor spaces for each unit. The staggering stacks and complementary angles help with the lighting and circulation throughout the entire complex.

LIBRARY OF MOMENTS The library of moments was designed behind taking advantage of what the site had to offer. The site, located in Balboa Park, was located across from the rose garden and near the historical fi g tree. The purpose of this library was not to provide reading material for the public; rather, it was to provide a space for reading. The separation created by the louvered screen is implemented to allow for natural light to penetrate throughout the structure and to screen out the afternoon light. My goal was to create an experience where people are encountered with both the outdoor environment and the indoor environment as it is affected by the outdoors. Visitors are encountered with moments where they feel a connection with the site and its surrounding.

The design of this house was based on the needs of a young businessman in the city. The ribboning of the house creates a series of spaces that are above, below, and in-between. Clients are intended to explore these spaces while the lot is flanked by 30’ and 20’ buildings.

UNEQUIVOCAL CONNECTION This project examines the physical, geographic, social, demographic and historical features that make a city livable. There are two basic problems to the waterfront: first is the interpretation of the city to the bay, and second the environmental and urban impact of water rising that will face San Diego from climate change. The critical analysis of the existing tidelands on an existing side in Barrio Logan will help read existing site conditions and visually help communicate the issues that will render the process of design. New landscape formations are to be developed and examined as infrastructural strategies accentuating on pattern applications that are able to absorb the complexities of the contemporary city. The process, therefore, involves exploration of pattern types and imaginative speculations while understanding its organizational opportunities and interrelationships of social, environmental, economic, architecture and urban elements. The new urban fabric is to provide a negotiation of unified space for both the community and industrial companies as they both make Barrio Logan what it is today.

Seniors and the general public will be able to use this site as a place of exploration. This pocket park will act as an exploration of the Chicano culture by providing an ambulatorium opening up to the murals, Aztec arrow, and the commemorative bust of Benito Juarez.

The abandoned lot will soon be home to an extenstion of San Diego Community College. To embed a pocket park within its facilities can help the all age groups of the community interact with each other. The existing impressions on the surface of the site help envision a playful area of interaction for children and students. Unlike the other pocket parks, this pocket park will be as open as possible and function as a reading, playing, and socializing space.

Families, the Continuing Education students, and firefighters will use this pocket park as a functioning lunch break space. It will be designed as an pleasant contrast away from the bustle of traffic from the adjacent freeway entries. The area will be protected from the freeway and still provide an access to the rest of the world through a reflective pool created in reponse to the collection of water on the already existing site.

With the proposal of Mercado del Barrio, the site will soon consist of three large boxed structures with a central parking lot. Movement within and around this site will encourage a space for rest and relaxation. To be freed from the contant movement, the experience of arriving to this pocket park will be one of decendance from Cesar Chavez Blvd. The formation of the existing soft space around the site will allow for the pocket park to use this as a boundary between constant movement and the pocket park. This pocket park will house seating for adults surrounding an open space for children to interact with each other.

Soft Surface

The billboard on this site acts as a stage to the rest of Barrio Logan. Instead of using this billboard as advertisment, it can be a screen projecting family movies once a week to bring the community to share an interest in film and entertainment. The pocket park will also provide space for the Roots Factory whose mission is to “foster a space that promotes global consciousness through a message of peace, protest and collectivity by employing a provacative blend of cultural imagery and music�.
