NORMALITY / ABNORMALITY


Graduate Thesis

Primary Advisor: Hansy Better Barraza / Secondary Advisor: Emanuel Admassu


NORMALITY / ABNORMATLITY how literature inspires and creates architecture

“Normal” is a violent word. Don’t use it for soothing. Don’t force it on somebody. Normal is itself an extreme of insanity.

Why, Why,

03 N O R M A L I T Y / A B N O R M A L I T Y

Why,

my friend,

you crouch?

my friend, Why,

on this busy street? you push your hands against your ears? my friend, you open your mouth wide?

my friend,

my friend,

it’s been a while?

Why, my friend, you scream so

loud but i can’t hear a sound?

Peculiarity is normal. Peculiarity is common. Why one has to act normal, While one’s peculiarity is totally harmless?

“Graduation project is the embodiment of how one lives and survives through architecture” Takamatsu Shin, Japanese architect Before RISD and architecture, I studied and obtained the bachelor degree of English literature and German language. For the past two years, I haven’t encountered a moment when words, terms, paragraphs, or a story sparks the imagination of space or spatial form. Rather than that, a drawing or a model would inspire words and fantasies that tops and outshines my project and design. From the frustration, grew the curiosity of how space, form, or spatial logic are inspired by words and texts. People would hardly doubt that modern literature inspires and influences modern architecture. Yet while studying examples of how literature inspires architecture, I encountered numerous literary examples, of which spaces and buildings are treated as reflection of social background or psychological state of the protagonist; or architectural examples that shows people’s confusion of literature devices and linguistic devices. Roland Barthes, for example, collected words or scribbled thoughts of different people that contribute to the same topic, and assembled the words together to form a seemingly logical paragraph that contributes and gives birth to a collective consciousness. Roland Barthes’ work is more of a linguistic play, that uses de-construct, and re-construct actions to achieve a playful analogy. Whereas Peter Eisenman, whose architectural operation and intention of the “House of Cards” project are purely linguistic, was often mentioned or commented by critics with the term “literary” instead of “linguistic.” Literature focuses more on the understanding and delivering of context and is not a mere operation. My thesis explores how does literature perform as the generator of both the soft and hard elements of architecture?

URBAN ASYLUM: A HOUSING PROJECT The urban asylum is not a crazy house. It is a place where people can feel at ease and be themselves. No need to try or act normal to satisfy social etiquette and expectation. The room is itself the projection and reflection of the inhabitant’s mentality and daily life.

SITE Three hundred years ago, Taipei was still a lake. People followed the watercourse and entered the low land that sits inside the mountains. They constructed conduits to cultivate the farmland. Until fifty years ago, the times when people’s hands and feet are wet are longer than when they’re dry. Later on the houses followed the western trend and started to grow up restlessly. As if it’s going to grow a mountain in the center of the basin and press down the mountains that walled Taipei. The lake was drained but the basin stays humid as usual. The lake water converted into sweats and tears, secreted from the skin and eyes, vaporized into the air, rode on the cloud to escape to the sky. The clouds carried people’s wishes to throw the distress far away over the wall of mountains. Yet the labor of people was too solid, and the sorrow too thick. Not so high up in the sky, the clouds couldn’t carry the sweats and tears any further, so the sweats and tears turned into rain and fall back to the Taipei city, year after year, month


04 N O R M A L I T Y / A B N O R M A L I T Y

Rain writes the stories of people on the roofs, walls, windows, asphalts, grasses, puddles, and muds. Sometimes it writes so fervently, that it falls on people, cars, and buildings like fists. It smashes and blurs, the story can no longer be read, leaving only the dabbing sounds rocking the eardrum, and branding the life of the city onto people’s skin. There are also times that rain writes so light yet dense, like the soft caresses of silk. If you would, you could find a plain concrete wall to watch the rain drizzles the stories. The rain in Taipei never drains, so are its stories that wishes to be told again and again. It rains after rains, year after year, month after month.

CORRIDOR / STAIR

06 N O R M A L I T Y / A B N O R M A L I T Y

In one of the many wild dreams I was being chased by light. I was running so fast that I think I reach, even surpass the speed of light. My heart stabilizes with this joy of pride. Then I noticed something crawling from beneath my feet, so dim and vague I couldn’t tell what it is. BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! (Heart ceased) GOT YOU!

What is it like to be trapped? Is it like when one tries to leave and run away from a place, but no matter how long or where one goes, one always returned to the same spot whether consciously or unconsciously. Maybe one doesn’t want the exit. The familiar fear provides the assurance of one’s existence and sense of securement. What is the pattern of this runaway? Is it linear, a loop, or a spiral? And what about the daily routine? Is the pattern of daily routine linear, a loop, or a spiral? I need a philosopher to talk to, or a talkative middle-aged person/elder from the neighborhood will do. I shall plant a philosopher and a talkative elder in my brain. Water them and have them talk to me. I wander in the accustomed daily normalcy, enjoy the smoothness weaved by experience, with my brain chill and unbothered. Till some enormous and unexpected deviance dropped and interrupted the all-too-familiar, background-music-like daily life, and altered for good the daily notes, which had been carved on every inch square of my flesh. The deviance should have been confined within that specific day, that specific hour, minute, and second it occurred, and within that specific place, that specific spot, but it didn’t…. It fell so violently on the smoothness that even it is past, no longer there, I, my fucking brain started to project that fucking horror, a timid act of defense and preparation for the might-never-happen-exactly-the-same deviance, a nightmare that happens not only at nighttime, a nightmare that happens regardless you are asleep or awake. I don’t know why, or rather, I don’t bother to know why I’m obsessed with rehearsing and experiencing this derailment again and again. And each time I chew it, I obtain and add more detail and flavor from and to it. What is it that I try to conquer or negate? Is it the incident itself, the self that responded to the incident, or the response I made towards the incident? If I chew it long enough, will it finally be bland, and will I be confident enough to spit it out? I need to plant a philosopher, or a talkative middle-aged/elder will do. I need to plant them in my brain. Water them, and have them talk to me. I need to talk. I need a person to talk to, spitting and sticking the bland deviance bit by bit on the other.


PROBES WALL

07 N O R M A L I T Y / A B N O R M A L I T Y

When I have trouble falling asleep, I comb the wall with my fingers, to feel the subtle cracks, the reminiscences of the paintbrush. I’ll sit up obtrusively in silence, and get more involved in this game of tracking. I’ll find a void to whisper the gibberish and secrets in, and then smear the warm breath away with my palm and seal the words. Good night, I’ll tell you more, next time.

I like to sprawl on the icy-cold concrete wall on a hot summer night, feel the wall sips my daily dribs and drabs away with my temperature, pacifies the nerves, loosens the frown, and glides me into the velvet dream.

I tuck the secrets into the wall and yet you hide yourself in. I embrace you as if I am cuddling my lover, even though your stiffness leaves my arm straight and unclosed. A wall with cracks, a wall with secrets, a wall with traces A wall that hides, a wall that refuses, a wall that hugs What is wall? It’s a segregation, a note, a manifestation, a protection, a tombstone.

It existed the moment you first came into the room, showed no surprise or refuse to your then presence and later being. You, instead, were stunned. It stood prominently in the middle of emptiness, left no clue about whether it just came or was about to leave. As a display of friendliness, you held a banquet in front of it. It didn’t accept nor refuse. It was just there listening to your awkward pleasantries and tipsy nonsense. Content with your courageous friendliness, you left the banquet there, and started to call it “friend” because it never told you its name. Oh, excuse me, it never made a sound. But it has shown its amiability through its quietness and permanent stay, you confirmed yourself. “Friend,” you called it. Having dinner with your friend everyday after work became a habit, a daily ritual. It never rejected your hugs. You were deeply drawn by the way it stands. “How indomitable and magnificent,” you thought. Your friend’s pride always guide you through the low tides and hullabaloo of life. You thought about decking out your friend, and drawing it a face, but decided not to after all. You’re afraid that your friend will die if you draw it a face, like “Chaos” in Chuang Tzu.

The Ruler of the Southern Ocean was Shu, the Ruler of the Northern Ocean was Hu, and the Ruler of the Centre was Chaos. Shu and Hu were continually meeting in the land of Chaos, who treated them very well. They consulted together how they might repay his kindness, and said, ‘Men all have seven orifices for the purpose of seeing, hearing, eating, and breathing, while Chaos alone has none. Let us try to chisel the orifices for him.’ Accordingly they chisel one orifice for Chaos a day when seven days passed, Chaos died.1 1“Zhuangzi: The Normal Course for Rulers and Kings,” trans.

The project site is located in Providence the latitude is 42 degree. To optimize the solar energy gain from the roof, it is suggested to have the roof tilted at the angle of its located latitude. The issue for the team is to balance between solar energy harvest and the loss of building volume.

The site ME105 locates near the providence river park and connects the downtown and the college hill, acting as a hinge and a corridor. The gr ground floor is carved out to provide the visual linkage. At the north corner, the stairwell is enclosed by the curtain wall to provide the historical and natural scenery of Providence and a treat to encourage people to walk the stairs. On some of the floors, the south corner is turned into a mezzanine providing the view of the canal river and the bay. SCALE

The housing unit module is a 8m x 8m x 8m concrete cube, designed to float on ocean. To respect and keep the consistency of the surface water line, the roof of the unit emerges only about half meter above the water. The roof has an entry way leads to the interior, a skylight window, and either an additional skylight window or a carved down courtyard. The first floor (from top to bottom) serves as a public space which contains living room and kitchen, and the second floor serves as the private realm with bedroom and bathroom. The public floor is an enclosed space with no partition wall. It receives only skylight from the ceiling. And the floor slab is set back at 30 centimeter from the inner face of the exterior wall so that the public and private floors are tied and connected. In contrast with the first floor , the second floor has large glass windows that creates a sense of openness and provides visual linkage to the ocean and the community. Partition walls are used to mark out the bathroom and bedroom, create a corridor at the periphery of the programs, and secure the privacy. The third floor, which is the bottom floor, is used for mechanical systems, to generate electricity, drinking water, and oxygen, and has the air/water tank to control the draft of the units.

Instructor: Carl Lostritto


STATEMENT

THE INVISIBLE CORNER Chapter 1: The Canvas a fragment of the perceived world

37 T H E I N V I S I B L E C O R N E R

Chapter 2: The Lines a herd of lines enter from one end of the canvas, traveling through, and exploring this scrap of the world they turn, diverge, intersect, collide, blur, and fade as they travel, responding to the substance, unperceivable by human eyes, forming a representation of the matter exists in this framed fragment of the universe, and delivering it to the eyes. Chapter 3: The Missing Edge place where the lines ponder or cease disappointing viewer’s expectation of seeing the moment through its absence unneglectable regret Chapter 4: The Corner revealed through the streaks of lines, composed of, and accentuated by the missing edges reified on the canvas, yet unsettled with the ever shifting understanding of it it is concrete and ephemeral inside and outside concentrating and dispersing solid and void permanent and transient

The studio examines the reciprocal process between computation and architecture design and explores how computation generate drawings, influence, and inspire architectural design. It focuses on the corner conditions of architecture and how lines articulate the edge, the corner, and the surface.

The site locates at the Charlestown area in Boston, MA. The flood analysis shows the existing buildings and the program type of the buildings that will be affected by different flood situation. The 2-feet-flood condition is common for Boston now, while the 5-feet flood condition illustrates the extreme flood situation. Yet, presumably in ten years, with global warming effects, the now-extreme situation will be common and the 7-feet-flood condition will be the extreme situation. And in twenty years, the extreme flood situation might reach up to 11 feet, which will affect 15 percent of the residential buildings in Charlestown.


SITE ANALYSIS VISUAL & TOURISTIC

PROPOSAL

VISUAL LINKAGE

The project will be a senior housing combined with the public water rehabilitation program. This will be a response to the aging population in Boston, which aims to provide housing units for seniors living alone, with spouse, with family, or with friends, combined with the water rehabilitation that can soothe common muscle and joint problems. The ramp in the project is to connect and circulate between the housings, and encourage the residence to walk and introduce views to the residence. The public program also serves as an alternative destination for the Freedom Trail visitors and as a social hot point between the residence, the local community, and the young and the old.

The site is located at a triangular shape dock in Charlestown, Boston. On the north-west side of the site boundary sits the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. The site has a strong visual linkage to East, West, South, and North End of Boston, and to Chelsea. Charlestown is also one of the earliest settlement place because of its high terrain. CHELSEA

INNER CORRIDOR

Instead of modeling the walls, columns, and floors, the digital model models the space itself, which shows rooms as space bubbles. The bubbles are connected through the windows and the doors. The building sits next to a lake, with its arms stretch into the water, and faces the mountains. Despite the location and the form of the building display a welcoming gesture to the natural surroundings, the main occupied space is wrapped inside multiple envelopes of space bubbles.

The view field analysis further examine the contradictory character of the relationship between the building and its environment. The 1st Floor Normal View Field shows the main view field locates at the sides of the building. However, the scenic nature view locates at the front side of the building where no view cones are shown.
