LANDSCAPE THEATER GREEK GLEAMING JOURNEY

Sounion, Greece Individual Instructor: John McMorrough University of Michigan In an area around the Greece ancient heritage, Temple of Poseidon, which located in the southernmost point of the Attic peninsula, characterized by one of the major monuments of the Golden Age of Athens. Its remains are perched on the headland, surrounded on three sides by the sea. The site, as a revival of Greek civilization, reminds audiences and visitor of the prosperous times of Greek’s democracy and freedom. The design consists of a theater that employ forced sightlines to create a visual connection with the stage and the natural site in the chosen direction. The proposed route runs from the shore of the Aegean Sea, to the theater, with sites spread along the way combining archaeological with leisure tourism. The performing centers, bring artificial light into the natural hill with modern fixtures, construction and lighting techniques. The thesis explores the possibilities of architecture to engage emotions through visual connectors, musical or rhythm sensations, and scenic memories. Here, the performances lightens up the ”gleaming-white ruins of the temple”; the luminosity is new monument; rest is an oasis; wandering between them is freedom. By leading the journey of the tourists, the project gives it life and animation, addressed through the creation of performing for the expression of excursive journey. The project reimagine the relationship between tourism, performances and the landscape.

Greek Theatrical Influence

Site & Context

Learning from the ancient Greek theater that leaves positive psychological effect on healing mind, increase motivation and appreciation of greek culture at then, the proposed theater will be holding both modern and ancient plays(musicals and other performances) for Athens citizens and tourists in a natural environment that is far from metropolitan city.

The proposed site for ‘the lightness mon of Sounion(Temple Of Poseidon) in Greec the visitor center that located in the site the Aegean Sea and access of cars and w Poseidon occupies the major proportion o closed to the wing or the back of the histo


nument’ is located at the archeological site ce. The project is aiming at reprogramming e that is up on a hill, with three side facing walk only. The historical site of Temple Of of the peninsular, while the visiting center is orical site.

Cape Sounino is a popular daye x c u r s i o n fo r t o u r i st s fro m Athens, with the sunset over the Aegean Sea, as viewed from the ruins, a sought-after sight since the first development of modern tourism in the early 19th century.

Users & Bodies The site is built for tourists that coming to visiting the archeological site of Sounion. The theater is not only serving tourists but also local citizens as a source of modern enter- tainment. The conveni- ence of short distance from the capital Athens, means the theater pro- gram will have potential to serve more metropolitan audience. 9

STACKING PAPER MUSEUM

Ann Arbor Individual Instructor: Jaffer Kolb University of Michigan The project is located on the cross of Liberty street and State Street. The project is aimming at proposing a gallery for artist Bridget Riley, whose work present a great variety of geometric forms that produce sensations of movement as abstract paintings. The gallery consists of five boxy rooms that connects through stairs and go up in spiral way. The interior lobby is simply constructed as a void space that hold the glass envelopes, and is structurally supported by the gallery rooms, and is covered by another layer of skin, which is made up by stacking of horizontal thin translucent planes. The whole building become a translucent box that absorbs light in during the day and projects light out in the night.

DEXTER COLLECTIVE

DETROIT MIX-USED HOUSING Detroit Collaboration Student: Yameng Zhang, Stephanie Tong Instructor: Joel Schdmit University of Michigan

The project is located on Dexter Ave, which is north of Detroit downtown.The housing project aims to reintroduce density into the neighbourhood on Dexter Ave by implementing mixed-use, commercial and residential buildings. In addition to create density on Dexter Ave, this design is to implement a connection between the commercial activities with the residents. This project focuses on the relationship between indoor and outdoor space and their proximity to the public and private areas. The circulation and balconies in the ‘8’ building is opened to the courtyard, but it is a private space since it has limited access to residents only. The units are heavily driven by the structural grid to optimize the spatial quality of each living unit. Therefore, the facad reflect the grid that is implementing on the plan through its thickened walls on the façade and dramatic shifting of spatial volumes to create balconies within the thick façade.

MOON CHAIR GALLERY Columbus, Ohio Individual Instructor: Jeffrey Haase The Ohio State University

The museum is to be housed on the second floor of a two-story urban infill. There is sub- stantial amount of foot traffic in the neighborhood. The client prefers that the majority of the natural light be brought into the space from above. The goal of the design study is understanding interiors at the scle of the body and explores the relation- ship between program development and the poetics of spatial experience. The gallery is aiming at holding permanent exhibition for one single chair, which is moon chair designed by Architect Zaha Hadid. The structure serves as both the divider of gallery space, that breaks the space into different zones allow experiential sequence of moving through the organic geometry which is derived from moon chair's geometry. The movement through space is internally connected with the design of chair and changes the occupant 's perception of the realtionship betwwen the space and chair.

MO(INK) RESTAURANT

Columbus, Ohio Individual Instructor: Jeffrey Haase The Ohio State University Columbus is a city where diversity meets. The unique retangular bar shape of the site provides the opportunity of designing a restaurant embedding with three sequences. Thus, its own diversity illustates many Chinese traditions, from the calingraphy screens to tea house seatings. It is a local Chinese culture featured dim sum restaurant and tea house located in Columbus downtown. The mains dishes of dumplings, Chinese dim sum are presented in bamboo dishes, which matches the sense of the space, reaches the revival of cultural traditions. Mo restaurant deisgn concept is introducing “traditions� blending with asian type of material and atomosphere inside the space. The space is featured in using lightweight material to create a sense of brightness and openess. Lighting is mainly used to support the ceiling or vertical fabric elements, in order to help present the paintings and artwor well, I choose to use spotlight and wall washers. the lighting overall create an atomosphere that make my food and restaurant environment looks good.

VERTICAL VILLAGE

Evolo Skycraper Challenge Collaboration Team: Yameng Zhang, Hongyi Zong University of Michigan

NARRITIVE Since the emergence of the elevator, the fabric of the streets in the city began to extend upwards. However, all the functions are placed in homogeneous space linked by the elevators being covered with glasscurtain walls, thus the internal diversity is not reflected from the exterior. On the other hand, with the capacity of the buildings rising up, the vertical walls also influences forms and function layout of the skyscrapers that we know have already can’t satisfy people’s needs. In this design, we take a stretch of the street fabric in Shenzhen as an example to study and try to discuss the urban problems and the solution to urban planning issues that exist within the current fast-growing metropolitan Chinese cities.

The connection between space and space is single in a block and the only link is the elevator while the connection of each space is out of building.

On the contrary, we can see various organic connection in the street

PROBLEM 3: All parts of structure with different functions are linked by the elevator in the urban complex band diversity are covered by the glass skin or concrete skin to make the city looks unified. However, people are much more desired to live in diverse environment, we hope the the building can be more like community in a mega structure.

Development of the vertical streets

Phase 1 Different functions are integrated into active the boring urban complex. Phase 2 The proportion of the locations can be connected and even stretch to other building according to needs Phase 3 The vertical components has formed a network up in the sky and the diversity of the urban complex is shown from the elevator. the traffic pressure is reduced compared to the traditional skyscrapers.

Exterior Perspectives

Why not set the street with different facilities up at the middle of the buildings, allowing people on the both ends to approach through the connection. At the same time the internal richness of the building can extend to the connection “streets�, while the energy, connectivity and diversity can penetrate into the buildings.

COLUMBUS CENTER HISTORICAL BUILDING RENOVATION

Columbus, Ohio Capstone Individual Instructor: Susan Lee The Ohio State University Public space become a key of contemporary spirits in our minds.A good public space is not"built" and"designed" to be, but "used" to be. Each individual in this space is the process of benefiting. He or she is a free individual, can enjot the convenience of the city from coming and using the space. The community will be able to re-engaged together, especially bridge the gap between students and other community members. To accommdating the needs of college students, their desired study common rooms(similar to the spaces in university dometories) and small backyard recreational space. While attracting students to come, at the same time, the small center embodies diverse use to meet needs for low income families. Getting kids engaged here not only because this the only place to go in order to help members release their stresses. so in this perspective, the space would offer the healing status. inspires from the place like coffee shops( learning from the reason why people likes to go after class/work).

HOT TUB GARDEN RETREAT

Toronto Individual Instructor: Thomas Moran University of Michigan

The project is a series practice of describing a theme( hot tub garden) inside a program (hotel) through photography, physical model, video/film and axonmatric drawing. The site is embraced by a comtemporary distinct located in metropolitan city-Toronto downtown. Queens street is closed to lake shore in between a residential area. Through making model of a hotel lobby, stairs, room and the hot tub area, the scale and design of the hotel space has been translated in photography of those spaces and the story-telling video recording. The exploded axonmatric drawing has bee used as the only drawing media to illustrate the hierachy of the hotel programs, which create a layered waterscape scene facing the Queens st. The water interconnects the interior pool and exterior pool as well as the scupltural part of the waterscape.

Team Jihee Choe, David Don, Yameng Zhang Role: Design and assembly Instructor: Glenn Wilcox University of Michigan

This assenbly utilizes 24 gauge sheet steel and simple folding techniques. The hexagon as a base geometry was forced, through multiple projections, to hold volume between a planar and curved surface. Apertures were used to articulate these pieces, allowing light to move through the assembly and anticipating the dimensions of welding tools used to bind the independent modules.

SPHERICAL ANALYSIS


Interweave Panots Inspired by the idea of interweaving, the pipes have a 1.4-inch diameter at the corners of the hexagon and a 0.85-inch diameter at the middle points of the sides.

The height of the pipes are also different at the ends, At the corners, they are 1.1-inchs, while the middle points, they are 0.7-inch.

The difference in the height and the diameters create interesting connections where the pipes meet..

When creating the pant, the pipes are extended out of the boundary and the trimmed to ensure that it goes all the way to the edges.

With the Boolean Intersection command, the mold that needs to be CNCed can be easily created.

Rotating the panots allow 6 variations that create unlimited combination of modular wall assembly.

Model Photographs

The random and unique pattern can be applied to walls, ceilings or floors.
