YEAR 3 SEEING THE CITY AS A STAGE SET Regeneration of Caernarfon, Wales, designing a series of permeable platforms addressing the dominant artifacts of the existing urban tissue, the wall and the medieval castle. Urban circulation is arranged in a way so that one experiences the town as a hidden treasure to be discovered, with the old castle to be the final destination.

SEEING THE CITY AS A STAGE SET: The four main stages in Caernarfon are: 1. Caernarfon castle: Caernarfon is a touristic destination with main artifact of its town the castle. The castle is the main reason why the town has sustained over the centuries and still constitutes the same dominant artifact of the cityscape. Its defensive language is characteristic with its safe stone wall revealing nothing of its interior spatial complexity. The castle is the achtectural hidden treasure of the town while the new waterfront works as a stage for it to be admired from proximity. 2. The staircase 3. Marina building complex 4.

SITE STRATEGY

BOAT BUILDING CENTRE-TENBY YEAR 2-PROJECT 2 ‘Ships were the most complex constructions of any society until just before the industrial revolution. Now, this highly skilled craft is more often that not confined to maritime museums providing an important cultural record of maritime heritage.’ A boat building centre and workshop has the potential for new generations to be involved with the maritime craft, material and construction of boat. Maritime craft has been fundamental to the development of Tenby, a seaside town in Pembrokeshire, South Wales. In the past, Tenby was one of the principal herring ports and health resort of South Wales. Nowadays, there is an attempt to preserve the cultural heritage by regenerating the place. Therefore, the project’s aim is the design of a boat building centre, which will provide a medium scale boat building workshop and maritime museum dedicated to the Tenby Lugger, a 19th century wooden working fishing boat, which is a unique part of the Pembrokeshire coast maritime history.

HOUSE SCAPES PROJECT 1

This project’s aim is to challenge accepted definitions of environmental and social sustainability through the indepth research of ecological systems used as drivers to create new housing typologies at both macro (masterplan) and a micro scale (detail) in central Cardiff. However, in the following project, the biological system of nautilus was not considered relevant in generating form or structure for the housing complex design. But still, it remains itself a type of habitat of ecology .

INTRODUCTION The aim of this task is to observe a biologic system and try to describe its performance within an environment. Further, the task was to produce a digital, performative diagram of the system to understand the forces that produce change in the process. We run the process multiple times to see how changing parameters generate variations of the same initial form. Finally, we test the relevance of the generated object to tectonic reality. Having ‘wind’ as a sustainable theme, we decided to study the biologic system of nautilus and how it performs in terms of wind.

TYPES OF APARTMENTS

A central square functions as a link between the two neighbour buildings, as well as, it creates a reference point for pedestrians in the city centre. The park gives the impression of being part of the square or alternatively, of being extended further in the same direction. A long ramp leading up to the first floor, is also public and defines a difference in layers through a promenade route. All agegroups are motivated to walk along the ramp while enjoying the view, children can play, elderly can move at slow pace safely. Under the ramp, and through the roofed corridor, there are shops open to the public. However, a coffee shop has a commanding position with view towards the park.

SITE STRATEGY

The section shows the building in context to the landscape of buildings and open green space. The circulation core of the building has access from the underground parking area to the public spaces and finally, to the housing units. In terms of design, the West facade is more playful than the East facade, since balconies are usually placed with view towards the park. Contradictory to the West green scenery, Churchill way dominates the East view, meaning that balconies would not be suitable to be placed in that position. Referring to the landscape, the green wall defines the boundary between the site and the neightbour building, but also keeps the unpleasant view of the surroundings out of sight. A part of the green wall seems to have been removed and embellishes the front surface of the ramp.

AERIAL PERSPECTIVE


BIG SPAN VERTICAL STUDIO Big Span refers to a possibility for form and also the realm that the project hopes to encompass. OUr investigations are basd on the premise that rather than technology being imposed upon an architectural proposition in a poetic work detailed strategies should reside throughout the process. We wish to observe and understant the link between the general and the specific, from analysis to detail. We set out to build something that would explore ideas of movement and rest, rythm and pause, threshold and dwelling, responding to a set of conditions in a given site, in Cardiff. By using only a single small section timber for the construct, we pushed an analysis of material possibilities and constraints, both in a technical and poetic sense.

N A T U R E A N D A R T I F I C E - T I A N J I N, C H I N A PROJECT 1 Nature can be an art piece in itself. Not purely a visual art but a multi-sensory experience. The gallery can provide an ulterior way to see, feel, smell and hear the natural environment in a controlled and focused series of architectural spaces. The integration of the landscape with the architecture occurs both in section and plan. Nature is allowed to intrude, the outside is brought in. The border defining the separation of the natural and the artificial becomes ambiguous.
