Wendy YAP Presentation, Fall 2012

  1. 1. Pronounced (Haw-Kin)Partners: Matthias Hollwich and Marc Kushner
  2. 2.  Artscape:  An art gallery, built in the side of a hill, bringing nature back into people’s lives and connecting art with nature. Econic Approach (Ecological+ Iconic)
  3. 3. WENDY!
  4. 4. Intent behind Wendy  …to increase the amount of fabric on-site, and increase the air quality in the surrounding neighborhood....” -- HKWN’s objectives in building Wendy (architizer.com) … and, as any MoMA PS1 winner, it’s party-tough.
  5. 5. So, what’s this Wendy like?  Wendy is a fabric-and-steel contraption encased in a 220,000 cubic-foot scaffold: 70 feet square, 45 feet tall.  She is made of bright blue fabric treated with CristalACTiV™ photocatalytic titanium dioxide. These particles break down organic and nitrogen-based compounds in the air, effectively cleaning it of unwanted pollution.  Huge internal fans and water dispensers of all sorts create a fine mist that cools spectators and partygoers, also funneling the clean air outwards and bringing more air to be cleaned inside.
  6. 6.  Photocatalytic oxidation – Wendy’s way of breathing The ions formed react with nitrogen dioxide in the air, forming nitric acid. This is harmlessly neutralized by limestone at the site.
  7. 7. So…can we build it?Oh, wait…
  8. 8.  The placement and distribution of Wendy’s 5500 separate elements took over 300 hours of calculations to determine, and it was evidently successful.(Unless it fell over as soon as we were out of earshot…) The process of air-cleaning through Wendy’s two-month lifespan is equivalent to taking 260 cars off the road – a significant contribution to pollution removal.
  9. 9. Contest Criteria &HWKN’s Vision
  10. 10. CriteriaRequirements:Water  InnovativeShade  TemporarySeating  Outdoor
  11. 11. Buildings Cause Pollution…Traditionally, buildingscause lots of pollutionbecause there’s somuch power expendedby utilities –lights, stoves, elevators,office machines, etc. –inside the buildings drawpower from inevitablypolluting power plants.
  12. 12. Wendy is…
  13. 13. ECO - FRIENDLY HWKN seeks to show people how buildings can be used to heal the environment rather than hurt it “Wendy” would actually clean the air utilizing nanotechnology rather than harm it
  14. 14. Wendy is…
  15. 15. INVITINGHWKN believes people will view “Wendy”as a friendly, attractive hangout – there aremisting jets, waterpools, rainbows, shade, and fresh air!
  16. 16. So pickWendy! …not Wendy’s. Please.
