WRIGLEY INSTITUTE OF MARINE BIOLOGY

CONCEPT ORIGIN

01 WRIGLEY INSTITUTE OF MARINE BIOLOGY Design Studio Project Instructor: Andy Ku Individual Work Dec. 2015

The Wrigley institute of marine biology is going to build aother sectific center for biological research and visitor admission. The concept of this project is base of three aspect of water, which is the most valuable asset in this site. These three treatment of water is about to observe, absorb and interact with the water. From the building form, it creates a cave-like space to let people experience different space before they enter to the water. And the openess through the ‘cave‘ would provide a spectacular view for kayakers or snorkelers. The louver on the top of the building would absorb water whilst introduce the skylight into labs, since the HVAC system are all hiden in the layer between the ‘cave’ and the second floor. The artificial dock create another pier to replace the existing slippery slope which is extremely dangeous when people walk with their bare feet. The U-shape would form a hub for boats to transit ocean samples directly to the labs, and the huge pipe would pump sea waters to the labs for research use.

LAYER ONE DESCRIPTION: VISIBILITY First of all, the water-intimated design method is regarding the visual accessibility to the sea. The view is the first impression when people overlooking this island. The visual path was quite consecutive with the main aisle of this campus, from the residential area to the equipment storage house the buildings are aggregated along the visual pass, they all on the relatively low elevation and sit on comparatively flat area. This is functionally efficient. With this valley-like topography, the view of the sea would never be blocked even in the cafeteria in the backward. The relation between user and water was spontaneously established. The temping water would attract people to interacting with the ocean. In general, water is the principal theme of this project.

LAYER TWO DESCRIPTION: WATER TYPE Basically the water could be divided as three type in this particular case, which is brine, fresh water and sewage. The marine research center and the operation tank near the helipad requires seawater, so they just pump it directly. The sewage was simply pumped up to the north hill. The water tank is distributed on the top of southern hill, a hard truth is the government reduced the annual wateruse limit dramatically, the whole campus is facing a severe water shortage. The amount of water desalinated from seawater are too slight to meet the requirement of their daily expense. In this respect, this project may could implant some passive design strategy in order to collect rainwater in the wet season and even trying to condensate the water vapor use the structure overlapped with marine territory.

LAYER THREE DESCRIPTION: SITE ENGAGEMENT

Axonometric Drawing 15

The activities take place in this campus is diverse, especially near the shore. The tempting water rescue people from the fierce sun. Most time of the day, the temperature is too hot for activities without water. So it forms the sophistication of catalina island in marine entertainment. Basically the water could be divided as three type in this particular case, which is brine, fresh water and sewage. The marine research center and the operation tank near the helipad requires seawater, so they just pump it directly. The sewage was simply pumped up to the north hill.

However, the weakness of the site is quite obvious, Lacking in water accessible amenities and protection facilities. In order to fix this conflict, I am about to choose the project site near the water on the north side, exposed to the sun in order to create enjoyable pier whilst gather solar energy. The building should provide public space to respect the context of the marine culture of Wrigley campus.

02 AISLE TO ISLE ——Bamboo Pavilion Design The site of this project is located on Zhejiang Forestry University,a tranquil bridge on the lake surrounded by the campus. It was a challenging site that already has a amazing view on the lake surface. The strategy was bury the whole volume underneath the surface whilst build a roof structure via traditional meterials, to indicate the existence and prosperity of the pavilion. On the other hand, it would become another view when being watched on the other side of the lake, pretty match the Chinese garden philosophy.

CARVING VOID The term 'stereotomic', the conterpart of the term 'tectonic', was proposed by Germany architect Gottfried Semper to identify a unique method of spatial design. This refers to the foundational, grounded elements of architecture and 'tectonic' refers to the lighter, structural framework. As the literal indication suggested, 'stereotomy' is to engrave the existed objects by solid entities, to create negative space in an existence in another word.

I like an arch.

Look, arches are expensive, and I can use a concrete lintel over you.What do you think of that? ... Bamboo?

... I like an arch.

Building Distribution

The negative space made by the spetial subtraction are more penetrative than the space made by ordinary construction. Thank to the doubled system of grid lines, the transparency of this space is potentially upgraded. It is highly suitable place for constant exhibition hold by all the faculties in the campus.

SHELTER IN CAMPUS As a shortcut in the campus it is indispensable to carry a high density of walking flow in the rush hours. Due to the enormous quantity of students cross along this path, it is crowded in the rainy days and holding an umbrella is quite inconvenient. So maybe it's necessary to bring the bridge a shelter of aesthetics. Thousands of student take it as a shortcut from students' dorm to classroom. I sometimes wondering what about make the aisle to an isle,to animate the atmosphere of the lake surface and even underneath, peaceful,useful,prosperous and happy. To create a place for students to sit, wander, and overlook the flying kite or wishing lantern hanging above the playground. The sunken massing can be exploited as a museum for temporary exhibition.

MORPHOLOGY DIVERGENCE Design Studio Project Instructor: John Dutton Individual Work May. 2016

The methodology is to approach the investigation of the architectonic space with the notion of the ‘in-between’ space, in terms of expressing the density and complexity of patterns and the ability to create infinite systems without clearly readable boundaries. By tearing the ground level apart into four pieces, the atrium was created with four different space types. With their different height, the second level

become a mingle of outdoor space and interior well-organized circulation. The upper level is mainly semiar rooms and classrooms which require tranquil environment or say, private space. The programs located in the first floor are public accessible space, by blurring the actual second level with different floor elevation is would definitely vivify the second floor.

The building is located in DTLA, a newly developed uber headquarter. This tech school is one of the six building on site. The two entrnance are facing both the center of the campus and the San Pedro Street. By tearing the ground level apart into four pieces, the atrium was created with four different space types. With their different height, the second level become a mingle of outdoor space and interior well-organized circulation.

05 COMMERCIAL VILLA Half-semester studio Individual work 11.2014

Permutation of The Wall ShanQiang in Chinese means the kind of wall dividing a building in fire-proof consideration. In my perspective, this element potentially indicates a consistent order of the wall's permutation, likewise the arrayed pillar standing outside the Ancient Greek Architecture. This consecutive dicision did not impede the internal communication in this building but improved the vividity of the commercial interaction on the interface, among the interal tiny units of shops and the external terrace and ramp system.

HAND SKETCH In my academic design experience so far, I developed the habit that always finish my sketch before I using digital modeling tools. I consider freehand drawing a way of being closer to nature. The sketching could visualize every detail I conceived and even be a record for further spatial design and dimensional check.

The balance between formalism and pragmatism This study focus on finding most tenable volume as skins endow to the architecture by grasshopper. Simultaneously, we hope to retrive the origin design method which grows when architecture begins. Sometimes, traditional thinking is a shackle, encased our infinity creation. This experiment is a trial about gathering several prototypes despite volume, function or area these shackles, analyse these raw configurations, we can pick up some potential frames as the initial model. As far as we realize the diversity of 3D formation grows, we would not shackled by the system any more, and find the balance between site, function and aesthetics.

Paper-based Model

At the beginning, I expanded the scope of preliminary design explorations to the production of formal analytic models most likely to yield promising, by largely counting intuition, building prototypes.

In order to conceive the space created by the overlapped surface. I made a draft model with pieces of paper after picking this potential shape up from the prototype generator. The draft physical model making helped me to interpret the exact massing of the complex volume and established a paradigm for the next stage of design and further phsical model making.

With the more abstract formalizations of our indexical modeling strategies, we devised tower proposal that sit halfway between the genetic, potentially 'semi-automatic' model of the development and the more specific adaptations requires by site, programme, and aesthetics.

Emerging Morphology At the beginning, we expanded the scope of our preliminary design explorations to the production of formal analytic models most likely to yield promising, by largely counting intuition, building prototypes. With the more abstract formalizations of our indexical modeling strategies, we devised tower proposal that sit halfway between the genetic, potentially 'semi-automatic' model of the development and the more specific adaptations requires by site, programme, and aesthetics.

Green Soho The main tower are consisted with two parts, the main structure is traditional regular concrete frame, with a tube structure covered on the outside, and in this secondary structure which defines 'latent space' are supported by several spiral columns, as a maintaince of the entire system. The interesting part of the 'latent space' is to disminish the solid volume and consequently leave rooms for green plants. The demand of green element in a building was normally being omitted, but it is undeniably important. Instead of build a concrete machine, this project sacrefices a large quantity of area for green plant, serves a different attitude compara with its surrounding. It is a trial of renolvation of future building, a green hill beside the canal, a satire of urban civilization.
