SECOND LANDSCAPE

CONCEPT RENDER 20.2.10

The desire to physically lift the site, and by extension the pedestrian, to meet the elevated train led to the broader concept of secondary, or manufactured landscape. Initially manifested as a peeling of the site itself as in our concept render,

ITERATIVE MODEL_01 20.2.13

it soon became a long ramp which bounded our sunken spaces. Eventually it was reimagined as hung bridges existing within an extension of the existing industrial architectural language of the elevated train.

TRAINING + MAKER-SPACES

ITERATIVE MODEL_03 20.3.1

ITERATIVE MODEL_04 20.04.04

The development between our fourth and fifth iterations exists in the material shift in to earthbag architecture, which we pulled into the project for its sustainable, material, and thermal

properties. In choosing to grow mycelium, we required a very high R-value wall composition, which was most sustainably accomplished by reusing material from the cut/fill in bags.

TRAINING: Project Assembly Accessing the existing skills of the local (historically craft-focused) populace with a project-driven approach to training,

TRAINING: Digital Fab-Lab Specially outfitted spaces for an array of digital fabrication systems, including but not limited to: CNC routing, laser cutting, 3D Printing, and automated metallurgy.


GROW ROOF

MYCELIUM: Grey Water System A more than 10,000 SF grow roof caps interior spaces in a panelized concrete, planted with diciduous shrubs and grasses. A typical rainwater retention system will provide a sustainable reservoir to maintain specific humidity (50-60%) during mycelium production.


MODULAR UNITS

TRAINING: Transient Housing Units The first focus of the lab-workshop is a modular housing unit using mycelium as insulating and fireproofing material. While usable for permanent housing in a variety of situations, aggragated units on-site will serve as temporary housing primarily for visiting teaching professionals and craftspeople, repurposable as needed.
