This project was designed for a technical studio where NCARB criteria and requirements were used. In addition, this studio\'s conceptual approach was to select a material as a design methodology. The material I researched was Nomex Honeycomb, which was used as a modulating facade skin system.

  • PROJECT APERTURE: skin systems as communication TITLE: CRITIC: RASHIDA NG STUDIO: ARCH 331/431 FALL 2006 digiFAD laboratory CLIENT: PHASES: 3 DESIGN AND RESEARCH PHASES [MATERIAL & SITE RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY, DESIGN DEVELOPMENT] COURSE THIS STUDIO WAS AN INVESTIGATION INTO DESIGN AS A PROCESS THAT EXTENDS BEYOND THE CONCEPTION OF AN INITIAL IDEA. IT DEVELOPED AN INITIAL SCHEME DESCRIPTION: INTO A COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGY THAT DEMONSTRATES THE RESPONSE TO SITE CONDITIONS, THE MATERIAL NATURE OF THE ENCLOSURE AND ITS ASSEMBLY, THE SUSTAINABLE RESPONSE TO ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS, LIFE-SAFETY REGULATIONS, AND ACCESSIBILITY. THIS PROJECT WAS A SIMULTANEOUS INVESTIGATION INTO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SPECIFIC MATERIAL AS A TECTONIC ASSEMBLY, WHILE ENGAGING IN THE BROADER GOAL OF AN ARCHITECTURAL SOLUTION. THE DESIGN WAS FOR A DIGITAL FABRICATION AND ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN LABORATORY, SPECIALIZING IN CUSTOMIZED ARCHITECTURAL BUILDING PRODUCT DESIGN AND DIGITAL FABRICATION TECHNOLOGIES. WE WERE ASKED TO DEVELOP THIS PROJECT IN FULL WITH A GENERAL UNDERSTANDING OF BUILDING MATERIALS AND METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION, STRUCTURAL DESIGN, AND ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS PER NAAB CRITERIA. - NG PROGRAM: THE PROGRAM FOR THIS PROJECT WAS TO FOCUS & DEVELOP A SYSTEM THROUGH THE USE OF A SPECIFIC MATERIAL, WHILE DESIGNING A COMPLETE WORKSHOP/LABORATORY. THE PROGRAM INCLUDES A LOBBY, EXHIBITION GALLERY, WORK STUDIOS, MOCK-UP SPACE, TESTING LAB, MATERIALS LIBRARY, PROTOTYPING SHOP, FABRICATION SHOP, AND ALL TYPICAL COMMERCIAL FUNCTIONS. S I T E : THIS PROJECT’S SITE IS LOCATED IN MANAYUNK, PHILADELPHIA AT MAIN STREET AND LEVERINGTON AVENUE BETWEEN THE SCHUYKILL RIVER AND THE MANAYUNK CANAL. FOCUSES: THE FOCUS FOR THIS PROJECT WAS DESIGNING A SKIN SYSTEM WHICH ALTERED THE APERTURE OF THE BUILDINGS FACADE USING HONEYCOMB RESIN FIBER SHEETS. AWARDS: THIS PROJECT WAS NOMINATED BY FACULTY FOR THREE STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITIONS. IT RECIEVED A 2ND PLACE AWARD IN RECOGNITION OF OUTSTANDING DESIGN AND PRESINTATION SKILLS FROM THE “AIA WEST NEW JERSEY STUDENT DESIGN AWARDS” IN 2007. IT ALSO RECIEVED AN HONORABLE MENTION FROM “VITTETA: BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST BI-ANNUAL ARCHITECTURAL STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITION”. THE THIRD AWARD SUBMISSION WAS TO AN INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION CALLED “INPUT/OUTPUT”.
  • digiFAD LABORATORY IS AN INDUSTRIAL DESIGN AND FABRICATION FIRM LOCATED IN MANAYUNK, PHILADELPHIA [ACADEMIC]. THE SITE IS LOCATED ON VENICE ISLAND, AN Separation Map ARTIFICIALLY CREATED ISLAND CENTERED BETWEEN THE SCHUYLKILL RIVER AND THE MANAYUNK CANAL. THIS LOCATION HAS PREVIOUSLY BEEN AN AREA OF EXTREME FLOODING AND IS FOUND ISOLATED FROM THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY DUE TO A WEB OF VEHICULAR TRAFFIC. IN AN ATTEMPT TO RE-INTEGRATE THIS MAN MADE ISLAND TO THE COMMUNITY, IT IS THE INTENSION OF THIS LAB TO ACT AS A COMMUNICATOR BETWEEN “THE BUILDING, THE PRODUCT, THE FABRICATOR, AND THE COMMUNITY.” THE INITIAL GOAL IS TO CREATE AN ADAPTIVE AND MODULATING SKIN, WHICH COULD REFLECT THE PROGRAMMATIC CONDITIONS AND LEVEL OF PRODUCTION WITHIN, WHILE MAINTAINING THE LEVEL OF PRIVACY NEEDED FOR PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT.

  • digiFAD’S EXTERIOR CLADDING IS A MECHANICAL SKIN SYSTEM MADE FROM HONEYCOMB FIBER SHEETS. THESE HONEYCOMB SHEETS ACT AS SCREENS TO ADJUST VISIBILITY WITHIN. THE APERTURE OF THE BUILDING’S SKIN CHANGES BY THE EXPANSION AND CONTRACTION OF MULTIPLE SCREENS MECHANICALLY INDEPENDENT FROM EACH OTHER, BUT STILL CONFORMED TO A SINGLE SYSTEM, EACH INDIVIDUAL LAB/WORKSTATION WILL BE ABLE TO WORK ON VARIOUS SETS OF PRODUCTS AT MULTIPLE STAGES OF RESEARCH, DESIGN, & DEVELOPMENT. THIS SHIFT OF VISIBILITY WITHIN THE BUILDINGS INTERIOR ALTERS ITS IMAGE IN RESPONSE TO THE PROGRAMMATIC CONDITIONS OCCURRING WITHIN, AS WELL AS COMMUNICATING ITS FUNCTION THROUGH SUBLIMINAL PUBLICITY. digiFAD S DIO STU RK WO BY LABORATORY LOB Y LER GAL Second Floor Plan P SHO ION Scale: 1” = 50’ AT RIC FAB CE PA PS K-U MOC S DIO STU RK WO LS ERIA MAT RARY LAB LIB TING TES BUILDING Third Floor Plan Scale: 1” = 50’ CE PA PS K-U MOC [1] TING MEE [2] TING MEE G IN YPE TOT PRO SHOP PLANS Fourth Floor Plan Scale: 1” = 50’
