  • 3. ANNEX SOLIDITY 10th Avenue & 18th Street NY, New York FLOW CONTRAST Museum as a sculpture… Annex means to attach, append, or add, especially to something larger or more important. Our site, located on 10th Avenue New York City, is known as the meat-packing district. The High Line elevated freight line was authorized in 1929 as part of the “West Side Improvement Plan”, and the New York Central Railroad completed construction. Due to the elevated railroad line that were added through the neighborhood along Ninth Avenue and Greenwich Street, industrialization increased. Annex is a Kusthal Museum designed to incorporate the industrial history of the site by celebrating materials such as concrete, metal, and glass. The solidity of the form of the museum serves as a crown monument of New York City. The skin of the building resembles shards of rocks to represent the historical aesthetics of New York in American society. The Plinth was design to connect the street level of the museum to the High Line thirty feet above ground. It serves as an artificially natural circulation for pedestrians to move about the site and on to the sculptural garden, which circulates around the museum. The Plinth also functions as a stand, in which the museum as a sculpture sits on. The galleries of the museum are stacked into three concrete towers. The skin is made of glass, steel, and perforated metal. From the outside, the structure invokes a sense of sublimity with its rigid and rough exterior; in contrast, when entering the museum, the skin and the gallery are two different entities. The skin engulfs the interior structure, providing an exterior atrium. To enrich the space, the perforated metal allows light to be filtered into the space and enhances the sculptures that it houses. 1 2 VERTICAL CIRC 3 PUBLIC LOBBIES 4 5 6 RESTAURANT OFFICE/CLASS RM 7 ENTRANCE

  • 12. SUSPEND Food is essential to life. The more we know about food, the better we are about what we put into our bodies. What better place to learn and obtain fresh food than a market? Asheville, North Carolina is an urbanizing city with a population of eighty three thousand people. Last month, the City Council passed a Food Action Plan in Asheville. Among other efforts, the plan calls for focusing on existing landscaping budgets to include more edible plants and community gardens. It also calls for using the city’s Unified Development Ordinance to prioritize urban agriculture. And it aims to give people without reliable transportation safe walkways and public transportation to emergency food providers, grocery stores and farmers markets. Regulations for farmers markets in neighborhoods would be streamlined. Proposal I purpose Urban Plot as a centralized urban garden and market located in the heart of downtown Asheville. Urban Plot will be where farmers, consumers, food enthusiasts are united to promote education, health, participation, and experimentation with the freshest of foods.

  • 15. URBAN PLOT STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS Patton Ave and Lexington Ave Asheville, NC The structure to the market is based on the concept of suspension and tension. Columns are avoided to grade except at the building perimeter to create a open floor plan for people and vendors to move about the market, and to provide the optimum freedom for different programs and activities. The structural solution was to hang the upper floors from paired beams at the roof, with inch-thick steel ribbons in tension as vertical structure fitted into the plan module. 4’x 2’ steel columns and beams create the framing structure for the building. The two floors are hung on tension from the roof structure. Support beams and diagonal cables are use for support against lateral forces. LOAD DIAGRAM This model is constructed at an 1/8”=1.0’ scale. All the columns and beans are connected with a figure joint and cable were attached to hang the floors below before it was erected. Girders were added to support the structure and roof. The structure was stable but the floor were swaying and need bracing to react to lateral forces.
  • 16. URBAN PLOT STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS Patton Ave and Lexington Ave Asheville, NC FINDINGS After further analysis, lateral support was needed to make the structure static. Holes were drilled and cables were added diagonally along sides of the building connecting the structural frame and the floors to strengthen the structure. Diagonal cables were also added in the interior structure connecting the floors. ANALYSIS The structure seemed stable but the floors swayed from side to side when horizontal forces waere directly applied. Lateral bracing is needed to react to the lateral forces. CONCLUSION After adding the diagonal cables for bracing, the structure was more static. The top floor was very stable while the bottom floor was less static. Because the cables were imperfectly hand stretch and tied, caused the study model to be not as tight as it should have been. There is not enough tension for the model to be static. If machines were used to build the structure, the structure would be static. This structure could be static and functional if it was built is real scale.

  • 25. Skin to Structure DIGITAL FABRICATION
  • 26. Skin To Structure DIGITAL FABRICATION ITERATIONS II MARY TRAN Project 2 3 The objective to this project was to design a digital model using various tools in Rhino creating a structure. First, many conceptual digital models were made to analyze the solids and voids of the sculpture. Using the “pipe” command, curves were extruded into a wire frame structure. Then columns and floors were designed in the model to create a standing building. Finally, a scaled model was fabricated to illustrate the skin and the structure of the building. www.issuu.com/marytran marytran86@gmail.com ITERATIONS I 1 ITERATIONS III
  • 27. DIGITAL FABRICATION Skin to Structure Fabrication The base is a massing made out of chipboards. The structure consist of columns made with chip and basswood. The windows are framed in wood and layered with plexy glass. Thick basswood make up the floors of the structure. The voids and curded glass were fabricated using a 3-D printer.
