  7. 7. Spring2013 What is the meaning of edge? An edge separates, but it also belongs to its adjacent territories. In the city, the most critical edge condition occurs at the waterfront, at the intersection of land and water. The waterfront is by nature dynamic, and engenders innovative solutions for growth and adaptation. This project is sited in the Fort Point Channel area of Boston, Massachusetts as an opportunity to examine the idea of architecture on the edge. Here, the challenge is twofold: connecting the density of the historic city center to the dispersed development of South Boston, and reintroducing these two areas to nature in the form of water. The exact site chosen is the existing Northern Avenue Bridge. This project focuses, not on the historic value of the bridge, but rather on the potential to create at this site a meaningful space that gives the visitor a sense of the threshold between city and harbor. The proposed program, a Museum of Water, is inspired by the symbolic, cultural and physical powers of water. The Museum would bring renewed interest to this moment along the urban edge while enhancing the role of the bridge as an important pedestrian access across Fort Point Channel. Humans, nature and the built environment share boundaries. The goal with this exploration is to create an architecture that exists within and across those boundaries to enhance the experience of all. 1.

  22. 22. CONCLUSION: This thesis is seeking for who really attention to our Boston area waterfront development. Look at the ongoing development plan of South Boston, it is true value to think about the connection between it with the existing developed waterfront from the other side. Especially, that connection represent for a new alternative edge on the waterfront. By this intervention, the new pedestrian and its auxiliary will become a new definition of the new edge of Boston waterfront. The urban waterfront is a dynamic and vital area, full of potential. Historically, waterfronts have witnessed many layers of development, leaving this zone to often play a peripheral role in the life of the city. The Boston waterfront began as an active trade zone, developed as an important industrial area, and now exists as a somewhat undefined mix of diverse uses. The unique qualities that define an edge, of ambivalence, of ‘betweenness’, suggest a method of understanding and of exploiting the unique characteristics of the Boston waterfront so that it may become a major destination as well as a moment of connection. 24
  23. 23. The site of the Northern Avenue Bridge provides an exciting opportunity to improve existing pedestrian connections, to compliment continuing development in South Boston, and to redefine the ‘edge’ of the city of Boston. It also allows for another important role for the proposed project: to redefine the relationship of the city to its harbor, and of the inhabitants of the city to nature. The proposed project is for a Museum of Water, and for an enhanced public thruway for pedestrians and bicycles. The Museum introduces the major aspects of water in four categories: Experiencing Nature, Water Crisis, Water and Art and Pure Water. Through the experience of the educational pavilions, and through the framed views of the city beyond, the new Museum aims to redefine the edge of the Boston waterfront. The initial scope of this thesis may expand to look at other port industrial areas. The goal is to increase public usage of the waterfront, for residents and as an attraction to tourists. In Boston alone, there are many opportunities to enhance the meaning and character of the water’s edge. Lovejoy Wharf in the North End of Boston, the dry dock wharf in South Boston, and many locations in East Boston are all awaiting development. The water’s edge can and should be viewed as a major asset to the city and should be developed as a unique and vital amenity.
  24. 24. This building looks to reinterpret the predisposed notions of wood construction. Wood is an organic material made to effectively resist the tensile forces caused within a tree’s branches while simultaneously resisting the compressive forces caused by the weight of the tree, and yet wood construction has been greatly limited to exploiting its compressive strengths. Rather than duplicating this same building typology, this project explores the potentials of the balance between the compressive strength and tensile capabilities within wood. This strategy highlights the intricate balance between these forces characteristic within the material and hopes to clearly exemplify the potential of wood as a material that works efficiently to absorb tensile forces.

  29. 29. “ Designing for place at The Sea Ranch means knowing your place and thinking in three dimensions—absorbing into consciousness the slope of the land, the vault of the sky, the reach of the horizon, and the undulations underfoot. It requires building the land’s contours into our fingers (or keyboard) as we draw, feeling the wind as it passes, knowing precisely the course of the sun, and acknowledging the presence of our neighbors—both those who have already built and those yet to come. It means containing the impulse to sprawl—working with the land, not spilling out over it. This is a precious landscape, a landscape that is not accidental but one that has evolved through design and through the investments of many. It depends on continuing care, ingenuity, and discretion.” —Donlyn Lyndon, The Sea Ranch Donlyn Lyndon and Jim Alinder, 2004 3.

  34. 34. This studio investigated the relationship between the built and digital environment. Students explored ways in which digital media can change the meaning of a place such as the new opportunities that exist for working since laptops and cell phones enable us to travel with a virtual office, as well as our continuous connection to each other regardless of our physical location. In addition, students drew conclusions regarding the civic role media plays in society and developed design proposals that address the need for people to interact in the built environment while creating media. The class researched media centers including MIT's Media Lab and the Cambridge Community Access Television, an existing non-profit organization that functions as a community service for the city of Cambridge Massachusetts. 4.

  37. 37. Optimization of solar gains, reduction of heat loss and day lighting are the primary sustainable design strategies Implemented in the project. Due to the orientation of the site, the extended facades of the building face the east and west axes. This positioning requires an appropriate response to solar control and allows for a unique opportunity to generate a rich architectural texture using the building envelope. A perforated panel system is deployed on portions of the southern and western facades, diffusing sunlight, minimizing glare and solar heat gains, while allowing winter sun deep into the building. A portion of the envelope facing Essex Street is covered by a double glazed curtain wall system that builds a connection to the urban environment, while controlling interior temperatures throughout various seasons. The double façade opens to allow ventilation in order to control internal heat gain throughout the year. The north façade, facing Bishop Allen Drive, has limited openings for views and thick walls to prevent heat loss in the building. A glass roof is implemented above the double height office space, filling the room with natural light, while managing heat gain and solar glare through a roof mounted louver system. 42

The landscape along the length of the building, easily accessed by ramps, not only provides a transitional approach for the CCTV offices, but also invites people to engage in their daily activities and events in a new public plaza. The CCTV entrance is shared with that of the Harvest co op as a respectful response to the neighborhood, and to promote community friendly building throughout Cambridge. The gallery corridor communicates with the outdoor plaza on the ground floor to make a connection between the inside and outside. Additional sliding partitions in front of the gallery provide a flexible space that can open to the outdoors and expand during special events.

The proposal of the new Massachusetts College of Art and Design satellite campus is for a location in Cambridge, MA. This new branch of the art facilities aims to expand the existing Boston Campus into the rich culture of Harvard Square. The building attempts to integrate the smaller college town atmosphere with MassArt's identity by merging the scale and proportions with the culture and style that helps MassArt distinctly stand out from other schools. In addition to the primary program required for the Boston campus, the new additional program emphasizes community outreach by providing restaurants and retail operation spaces to serve the public. Furthermore, some of the school’s facilities, such as the auditorium, seminar rooms, and the computer labs are shared with the local community. The available retail spaces are leased for either short term use or single events. The new campus strives to be a good neighbor by carefully fitting into the small scale of the local neighborhood context.

  62. 62. The scope of MassArt's 2011 Community design and build project was to introduce a new outdoor interactive learning center in the school yard the Dennis C. Haley Public School in Roslindale, MA.The existing school yard offerd an overgrown natural area with a swale, shady trees and various plantings.The concept was to transform this natural area into an inviting safe place for learning and discovery by creating paths, a bridge crossing the swale, educational nodes, seating, raised garden planters and an open-air teaching platform shaded by trellis structure.The project was designed to complement the natural environment and draw students into the area with the built elements while still maintaining the sense of the "undiscovered" natural setting,thereby reflecting the school emphasis on living,learning,and working in the local environment.Through this project, I and other MassArt graduate student experienced and involved in the whole process of conceptual design, construction drawing development, funding managing budget, hands-on the final construction.

As the name hidden coffee would suggest, the owner wanted to create an ideal place that would bring the customers out of their ordinary life, which is full of stress and hurry, and bring them to a small, quite space. The design intent for the coffee shop, which occupies an old French Colonial House, was to maintain the layers of texture and structure of the original house while adding an L-shaped loft. One side was a public space for customers while the other was a private residential area for the owner. The sketch of existing condition 3.

Experiencing a spectacular view towards the Tan Son Nhat Airport and a lively main street from a 180 ft. building height, the Moonlight Lounge attracts visitors and tourists by its location. The steel frame warehouse building form sits atop of a twelve-story existing building. The challenge is not only with the client, but involves many others parties such as the government, military department, the owner of the tower, and Parkson Co, who rents the building during the design and build process. In addition, the structure provides challenges both economically in material use and saving during construction time. Structural members have to be strong enough to prevent the wind load but light enough for integration with the structure of the existing building. The lounge layout has two parts, one indoor and the other is the outdoor seating area for flexibility in operating the lounge for the owner. VIEW FROM THE DANCING AREA Spring2009
