MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTS Featuring the Works of William Eggleston

Design:

Spring 2013

Location:

Memphis, Tennessee

Professor:

Denton Nichols

Project Size:

30,000 square feet

The Museum of Photographic Arts in Memphis focuses on the vernacular of the city by housing the work of famed photographer, and Memphis native, William Eggleston; in particular his ‘Democratic Forest‘ Collection. The museum is meant to be a showcase for Eggleston’s work and also to act as a cultural hub and a place for gathering in the South Main Historic District of Memphis. With versatile community space, dynamic gallery layouts, and a photography and culture library this museum creates a purposeful destination to enhance and display the culture of Memphis.

PHOTOS: William Eggleston

The focus of Eggleston’s work was on the banal; he claimed he was “at war with the obvious.“ Through his use of the dye-transfer process he brought out colors to reveal characteristic qualities of his home and local region.

SITE: South Main Historic District of Memphis, Tennessee The South Main Historic District sprouted up during the train era and the local businesses catered to railroad passengers and employees. When the era of railroad travel began to decline in the 1960s the district became warehouses and empty buildings. In the 1980s the historic significance of the district was recognized. The district is home to the National Civil Rights Museum, the Orpheum Theater and historic Central Station. The site at the corner of South Main and Talbot falls between Beale Street and to the north east and the National Civil Rights Museum to the south. This places the site in a central location to be a hub and destination for the people and culture of the Memphis South Historic District.

DIAGRAM: Evolution of Gallery

THE DESIGN APPROACH was based in creating a large community hub on the ground floor to be used for public events.

The galleries were based on the idea of overlapping and wrapping around a hub to allow circulation to flow seamlessly amongst them. As other programmatic areas were introduced and the necessity of the space to become taller was evident the galleries became stacked atop one another . To keep with the goal of circulation, a tower and stair connecting the galleries became a focal point along South Main. This created the opportunity to show off this feature through a glass facade, also allowing for the display of community events on the ground floor. The brick towere creates an experience for the vertical circulation as well as creating a wall to block southern exposure.

REHAB-NOVA INTERNATIONAL

Design:

Spring 2011

Location:

Birka, Sudan

Professor:

George Mann

Size:

335,000 square feet

Rehab-Nova International is the first of many proposed centers to assist educating, training and rehabilitating women, orphans and the disabled peoples of Sudan. The Architecture for Health program in the College of Architecture at Texas A&M University and the Norman Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture have worked together to create this facility not only as a care center, but as a place of community health. Teaching horticultural and agricultural practices along side vocation and job training allow the residents of this community to learn skills to take back to their home communities.

23


24


SITE: Birka, Sudan The proposed site is located in an arid, tropic climate with average temperatures ranging from 22oC to 32oC (72oF to 90oF). A dry season lasts from November through March with a rainy season from April through October with the majority of the precipitation falling in August. In the spring of 2011 Sudan split into North and South Sudan. Birka is in North Sudan near El Obeid (the capital of the state of Kurdofan) and about a mile from an offshoot of the White Nile River.

PHASE I will consist of constructing resident units and community facilities with

Super AdobeTM – filled sandbags reinforced to create a structure before using an adobe-like finish to create the faces of the building. With these facilities built, small agriculture areas can be developed and the large community facilities can function as initial medical and learning centers.

RECLAIMING

Design:

Fall 2011

Location:

Barcelona, Spain

Professor:

Miguel Roldan

Team:

Cody Koening & William Weiner

Reclaiming an area in El Poblenou District of Barcelona, Spain for public use will help bring life back to the area. Repurposing a proposed site at the intersection of Carrer de Pallars and Carrer Pere IV to provide options for sports areas, public gathering, business meeting spaces and multi functional space creates a place for work and play and a destination to start bringing life back to El Poblenou as the area works to rebrand itself as the 22@ District.

SITE: El Poblenou District Barcelona, Spain El Poblenou was a thriving the industrial district that has since gone on the decline. In recent years Barcelona has been looking to institute the 22@ plan which would rebrand the area as a center for technology and innovation, bring the area back to its former glory. In reclaiming and rebranding the Poblenou District, there is also a need for social, residential, business and other spaces for work and play.

Jessica Halm & William Weiner

Size:

12,000 square feet

Fire Station No. 6 is designed to accomodate firefighters, paramedics and their equipment while providing a change to the architecture of College Station, TX. Located at the intersection of University Drive and Tarrow Street, the fire station is in a very active area of the city and includes public gathering and meeting space for businesses, students and events taking place in College Station.

39

The fire station is laid out on the site so the apparatus bay can easily access both Tarrow Street and University Drive with the public space located in a separate building. The architecture is based in creating hills in the plains of central Texas. Using glue-laminiated arches and earth berms the building looks as athough it was cut out of a hill and is part of the landscape. The study of the building’s technical and space function were part of the design process and illustrated in the exploded diagram (right).

Music teachers & Lawyers with young family

Size:

16,000 square feet

Similar to the Skinny Double House of MVRDV, this urban housing design is meant to intertwine, while separating, two different living situations. The Skinny Double House is designed to meet the needs of family living for the diverse families that exist. The lot given was 100 feet in depth and 40 feet in width with the task of creating residences with a give and take in their spaces and benefits both sets of residents.

FOLDING / VIEWING SPACE Design:

Fall 2007

Professor:

Weiling He

The folding and viewing space designs were developed from folding a 8 1/2� x 11� piece of paper into a shape children could use as a play ground. The shape had to create play with interior and exterior space and an intricate design while still being replicable. Once the space was created, it was placed in a landscape and a wall was constructed to either enhance or break the flow of the landscape. The viewing space was designed as a way to view this wall from all sides and angles.

FOLDING SPACE DESIGN The folding space was developed from folding a 8 1/2� x 11� piece of paper into a form children could use as a playground. The form had play with interior and exterior space while maintaining to be replicable design. The four images below illustrate the folding of the paper with two images to show the three dimensional qualities. The images to the right show how the model developed as a structure and was eventually placed into a landscape.

STEP 3: Fold corner B underneath to cut B

STEP 2: Fold corner A up to cut A

STEP 4: Fold corner C around to cut C


MODEL: Final iteration of increased scale folding space in portion of landscape

MODELS: Formal and structural iterations of folding space

VIEWING SPACE DESIGN The viewing space was developed from creating a landscape for the folding space and constructing a wall that would either interrupt or enhance the flow of the space. The design creates a way to view the wall from above, below, left and right. The cut outs on the walls of the space (not the interrupting wall) create a way to view the wall in different light and shadow.

MOBIUS3 Design:

Spring 2010

Professor:

Michael J. O’Brien

This 2”x2”x2” cube is meant to illustrate the idea of a Mobius strip, the interplay between exterior and interior space, through design and structure. With a frame of plywood the zip-ties go from exterior to interior around the three octagonal layers. The structure is maintained through the cube frame and the taughtness of the zipties.

53


54


EVOLVER: ALICE Studio Zermatt, Switzerland This study in structural material was inspired by Evolver from Alice Studio at Ecole Polytechnique FĂŠdĂŠrale de Lausanne. Evolver is a mobius strip structure made of preconstructed wooden pieces transported to a lake in Zermatt, Switzerland where it was built.

DESIGN APPROACH The design was approached with the idea of creating access to the interior of the cube. After looking at multiple building types, facades, and structures the wood structure and how to incorporate an aspect of prefabrication and the play between wood and plastic led to wanting to study a space such as Evolver (above) and work with the concept of plaing with interior and exterior space
