Sutro Baths Of historical interest are the Sutro Bath ruins, which rest about a mile west of our site. They are an important landmark also owned by the Golden Gate National Recreational View C The Sutro Baths were a large, privately owned public salt water swimmimg pool complex inthe Lands End area of the Outer Richmond District in Western San Francisco. Built in 1896, it was located near the Cliff View F View B House, Seal Rock and Sutro Heights Park. View E The facility burned down in June 1966 and is now in ruins. It consisted of six salt water View A View D pools and one fresh water pool, they were equipped with 7 slides, 30 swinging rings and one spring board.

The Site

Our site is located at the SOMA (South of Market) Neighborhood. It consists of a narrow open area between the streets of Mission (due South), Market (due North) and Jessie ( due East). To the West our site is next to a big strucutre consisting of a Hotel and a parking building. The the site is surrounded by a viarety of buildings including two multi-unit complexes, a hotel, government institutions, non-profint organizations , educative institutes as well as retail and restaurant businesses. Since it counts with immediate vehicular, pediestran and bicycle access its nature is of a dynamic area with endless potential which is currently use as a parking lot. The narrow side of our site is oriented to the Soutn and also receive abundant shade from the next structure. It’s already open feel personality will be an important guide to follow trought the design process.

THE PROGRAM

The program of our project is similar to the nature of its neighborhood, it is complex and diverse. It consists of a housing complex including apartments with sizes ranging from 600 to 1500 sq.ft. This housing area will count with amenities including a gym, pool, workshops, meeting rooms ,a gallery, storage and laundry. It is also incuded in the program to provide with individual and shared terraces in order to promote community interaction and sensitivity . There is also a part of the program destinated to more public activities such as a grocery store, restaurant, flowershop, cafe, offices suites, bicycle parking. lobby area as well as a manufactured landscape. The Manufactured Landscape will include a basketball court, performance area, exercise tracks, dog run and community gardens. The complex and diverse program must be envision as a system which naturally creates a spot of life and urban experience in the dense city.

housing

housing Concept From the site and neighborhood analitical diagrams there was one particular aspect that was present all the time consisiting of the open spaces distribuited along SOMA. These spaces will gradually be filled and integrated to the dense urban grid and by consequence disappear forever. When extruded from a map these voids can be materialized taking the shape of a tubular element or tunnels. These elements will be the core concept of the project where these will be used as means of circualtion and connectivity between the housing block and the the manufactured landscape, the program and the urban setting and the inhabitants and their liberation from the dense city .

The tunnels then connect three different transversal blocks along the site , creating courtyards and permitting the landscape to permeate the building. The access from Mission posses the most porous program in order invite the pedestrian to reach the performance area and the several amenities and cultural activities that take place in the building. The access from Market recolects the public with its ramped and wide open performance area.


The transversal blocks continue vertically in an inclined path forming the housing complex. The inclined walls permit sunlight to reach the south oriented apartments and studios . The circulation of the complex is developed by the tunnels and aisles. The aisles face North and are part of a curtain wall system which protect the apartments from strong and cold winds. Glass is the predominat material in the complex. A skin of louvres system can cover these areas of glass and make the space dynamic and interactive with its surroundings.

ARH 654 DESIGN PROCESS & 3D MEDIA. FLOR VEGA. FALL 2010

10. Academy of Art University, ARH 654 Design Process and 3D Media/ 3D Max, Fall 2010 INFRASTRUCTURAL MODEL The infrastructural model represents the wireframe and infrastructure of the systems three-dimesionally. The organizational network that was abstracted consisting of the connections between the repetition of the beat, how this rythm extends and connects with the arms and brain of the drummer. Everything is connected when playing an istrument.

ANALYTICAL DRAWING The next step was to describe the event graphically. The objects and context were isolated and analyzed. Diffent kinds of diagrams were combined. The sequence of images were overlaped in order to depicit the movement graphycally. The different type of drums and its correlation with the movements of the arms were connected. Code can abstract the form of an object while depiciting the variation of its properties and here it was part of the analytical drawing and gave instruction to create the physical model.

DOCUMENTATION OF EVENT. The first part of the project was to document an event of our choosing. The event chosen was a boy playing the drums. The event lasted approximetly five minutes, and it consisted on playing repetitively a single beat. The devices used to document the event were a camera and a video camera and a lots of observation. This event was a small scale event but still there was so much information to process.

INTRODUCTION This project focuses on developing a post-programmed form design process. Thanks to new technologies, architetcs and designer have more room and opportunity to create spacially and experientally rich architectural propositions. That is the basic intent of this project.


THE REDEPLOY The process for the redeployment of the modules consisted in placing the selected modules in a space form the model were they could dwell. Basically they were scaled , rotated, extended like if their arms were reaching the arms of the infrastructure to create seam. It was a fun process, like a spiderweb effect. As predicted, a roof like surface emerged form module 3c, defining a statement of protection and dynamic effect at the same time. Module 1b with its volumetric properties offered possibilites to be an entrance or an atrium. Now program was starting to emerge.

LAYERS . EXPLODED AXONOMETRIC Now with both digital versions of modules and model, it was time for the redeployment. Modules 3 c and 1b were redeploy while a diifferent type of redeployment happened. This last one consisted in adding surface to the wireframe. Now the project consisted of four layers. Layer one been the infrastructure, layer two the surface , layer three the redeploy of the modules.

IINFRASTRUCTURAL MODEL. DIGITAL VERSION It is amazing how sometimes it can be hard to understand our own ideas, and this is exactly what happened when recreating the infrastructural model. If we don’t understand, how others will?. The process was long but not as long as building the model physically. No waiting time for glue to dry, all the attention is focused on creativity. At the samen time there is space for correction and improvement, there is space for taking things to next level, setting the framework for more creativity.


These digital versions of modules 1b and 2b enable to explore further the spacial properties and possibilites. At this point of the process, the ideas on how to start to redeploy this modues started to emerge. Module 1b could be redeploy in a space that denoted height, more towards INFRASTRUCTURAL MODEL the interior of the infrastructure, while Module 3C could work as a roof.

ARH 654 DESIGN PROCESS & 3D MEDIA. FLOR VEGA. FALL 2010

10. Academy of Art University, ARH 654 Design Process and 3D Media/ 3D Max, Fall 2010

The digital version of Module 3c enables to see its possibilites as a roof in a large scale. Neverthless later its redeployment will be in a much smaller scale.

SELECTION OF MODULES Three modules were selected to be recreated digitally. The purpose was to recreate the exact same module with the help of process code instruction. In the computer, the modules now can be rotated, scaled, and easy to explore. Module 3C form the New Series offered possibilites to be redeploy as a surface in a way of a roof. Modules 1b and 2b are both a New Serie of the same original module and both offered possibilites of be habitable, self supported spaces. All three are very directional and for this reason promised to be able to fit in the wireframe in many ways.

MATRIX AND NEW SERIES After creating the modules and after seen all the possibilities and potential for creativity it was absolutely necessary to organize the information. A Matrix functioned as a catalog. The Matrix contains the modules with the most structural and overall potential to be redeploy in the infrastructural model. Process code at this point provided a map and instruction on how to recreate the modules digitaly. Also surface pattern was added to the selected modules. All of these were included in the Marix.The New Series represent a new variation of the selected modules. Four new variations of the four selected modules were created.

ALTERNATIVE DESIGN .CREATING THE MODULES A lot of potential emerged form the infrastructural model in order to create and generate form. The next step was to extract volume form the infrastructure. The modules were extracted form critical moments inherent from the model. Points of transformation and intersecting systems were the most relevant moments. Eight modules were extracted first. Each row from the diagram contains different views form each module. This was important in order to analyze the different properties and possibilities of each module. Code played an important role during the process. Openings in the different volumes correspond to coded information.

CONCLUSION There were so many goals for this class, form learning new technologies to developing craft skills, and also to learn and experience a Post Progammed Form design process. All were reached and all can definitely continue to improve. This experience proves that we have more to offer as designers than we know. As long as there is order there should be no limits.......

RENDERINGS When creating the renderings, questions and ideas emerged. What could this space be? How would people respond to its form?, What context could surround it? Everything was backwards. Even thought program was not assigned, the idea of developing a space for playing music was ther, a music academy for instance. At the end I see and think it could work. But it could also be something else, anything else, a place to admire nature, or simply any place that could be inhabited.

Sutro Baths Of historical interest are the Sutro Bath ruins, which rest about a mile west of our site. They are an important landmark also owned by the Golden Gate National Recreational The Sutro Baths were a large, privately owned public salt water swimmimg pool complex inthe Lands End area of the Outer Richmond District in Western San Francisco. Built in 1896, it was located near the Cliff House, Seal Rock and Sutro Heights Park. The facility burned down in June 1966 and is now in ruins. It consisted of six salt water pools and one fresh water pool, they were equipped with 7 slides, 30 swinging rings and one spring board.

The Site

Highway ramp Located in San Francisco ‘s Presidio Park, the site is on Mason St., across the street from the “hinge” between the historic airfields and manmade lagoon . The Presidio was military land for 218 years. In 1996 the Congress created the Presidio Trust , who now manages the land.

Vegetation 1. Meditation garden. Secluded for privacy and protected from prevailing winds.

2. Jacuzzi and sauna. Offers views of Golden Gate, ocean and Alcatraz.

Architectural concept and form solution started with a layout where the exterior pool was placed to the front, interior pool to the back, spa to the side and rest of activities to the center of the complex. The final solution resulted in a series of hallways or tunnels which enclosed the exterior pool. The front hallway offers both a frame to the spectacular views and protection from the prevailing winds. The other important function of the tunnels is circulation where the user can walk the center at the same time is visually connecting with it , making the experience of the athletic center inviting and dynamic.

3. Roof top gym. Exterior area dedicated to gym activities weather permitting.

First concept

Final concept

Design Process As a major recreational area in the city , Crissy Field is in need ofan athletic center or the public. A series of site diagrams were created and used as a base to design the Pool Athletic Center connectig this unique site to its larger systems. The views of the bay and Golden Gate Bridge are panoramicand sublime and were considered to be enjoyed throught the athletic complex. The prevailing winds come from thenorthwest. The site is often foggy and windy.

Such areas protect this courtyard/outdoor pool from winds. The use of materials such as wood and glass provide secuences of transparency and privacy throughout the athletic center. Making the experince of the building an inviting and surprising one. From the outdoor pool is possible to enjoy an elevated pool or which is an extension of the indoor pool and a unique space to also enjoy the site views and the fog.

Section Section shows the distribution of four pools. Pool 1 is an exterior pool. Pools 2 are interior pools. Pool 3 is elevated and begins in the interior pool area and extendes outside in in a form of a baolcony to enjoy views of ocean and Golden gate Bridge as well as connect visualy with the rest of the center. 8.Elevated pool 8. The elevated/floating pool is another version of a tunnel connecting the interior pool with the Golden Gate Bridge and ocean views. It’s access is located inside the interior pool strucutre. Users reach it by a straicase landing on a platform. Protected by railings users can walk to pool and swim to the end of it.

A coherent architectural language is spoken in the entire project . A language composed by trapezoidal shapes product of the natural intention to open the building to the views and its enviroment. The same architectural language can be seen on plan view, program distribution, elevation and structure.

Hand drawn Perspective

Description The New River ( Rio Nuevo) is an open space that divides the city of Mexicali in two parts. This open space has been adandoned and used as a dump for many years. In 1997 the government approved and developed a master plan assigning different land uses to this area with the purpose of rescue and integrate this open space to the city. Part of this master plan inlcudes the addition of a new freeway which will help improve mobility across the city. Our last semester class focused on this Master Plan. Teams of 4 people picked a different lot and according to its land use we proposed a program for each space. Out team was responsible to design an Art Center, Library and Planetarium. We were responsible to design the access to the freeway in front of our buildings and part of the challenge was to effectivetly connect with surrounding buildings.
