  2. 2. NATHAN LANZETTI CONNECTnaturecontext Connections happen all the time, whetherurban you’re making connections between people, places or things, links are virtually inevitable. Shouldn’t it make sense, then, that architecture should take cues and make connections to other design disciplines? Design is involved, in some way, for most everything. And isn’t it said that inspi- ration can come from most anything? Connection. lifestyle My personal views on architecture are inspired continually by other design fields and arts. Linking works, whether literally, contextually, or conceptually, to locations, the natural world or other disciplines, this portfolio is meant n ics to prove that inter-disciplinary design can lead to innovative and creative works. Enjoy creating your own connections. c ha me -Nathan Lanzetti

BAYERISCHEdynamics german dynamics connecting design YEAR LEVEL__ 2ND UNDERGRADUATE PROFESSOR__ ROB SILANCE A composition comprised of three moments, one path,all working together to form one itinerary. In addition, theseelements must describe certain characteristics of an individ-ual. These characteristics not only describe and contributeto this composition and design, they also form a connection. Bavarian Mo-tor Works, also known inshort as BMW, form someof the most beautiful anddynamic shapes in the au-tomotive industry. Com-bining aggressive lineswith elegance, sporti-ness, and move-ment, designs showa wide range ofstyling, but theyare ultimatelyall the “ultimatedriving machine”.

  6. 6. floorplan F o ll o w i n g characteristics featured on BMW’s high end product, the design influence is noticeable. Strong angles, sharp angular lines, “movement” through shapes, and even a hint of color that is associated with sport 3 vehicles, all contribute to the design’s outer shell. Underneath, the design features a tall stair tower, that simulates a vehicles un- derpinning, or metal frame. This tall structure allows for the design’s “sheet metal”, or outer shell, to hang from it, just as a vehicles sheet metal is at- 2 tached to its rigid frame. del mo cale al SFin 1 FROM LEFT TO RIGHT; Model the final design.

Though being the project manager, my mainfocus and individual contribution was the bridge. The bridge is a literal and conceptual connectionfor the residents of Columbia simluating as though astrip of landscape was draped upon an urban area.

  9. 9. in g n n l ap T h e design scheme utilizes a few key ele- ments: draping, flowing arcs and earth inspired facets. Draping is appar- ent through the general approach of the struc-tural forms. Aimed at being arranged in a naturaland easy manner, the forms are evocative of a gi-ant cloth draped upon Columbia, remaining low-lyingand seamless—never abrupt or lacking integration—they manifest themselves as effortless and instinctive. Fabric is introduced throughout the designnot only in the dictation of forms, but also liter-ally in the tensile fabric shades that provide prac-tical shade as well as compelling, natural forms.

The concept for “Campus Core” was derived from the need, and desire, to create the youthful energy of a city within the Clemson University Cam- pus. The concept resulted in a few key pieces; Mixed-use struc- tures, Public spaces, Private spac- es, convenience, and a large “downtown” pedestrian street. The plan’s angle and orga- nization was a result of two grids that currently exist on the Clemson campus, the “Academic” grid and the “Athletic” grid. These two grids were placed proportionally on top of one another; from there massing was created followed by a series for im- portant cuts, lifts, and overhangs that solve all programmatic FROM LEFT TO RIGHT; Site context with site loca- boundaries. tion previous to any design intervention.

  12. 12. The Program is complex, including various high profile student activity buildings. The list includes a main dining hall, recreation complex, student hous- ing, as well as some academic flex spaces andplans offices. In total, the amount of built square foot- age would be around 306,000 Square Feet and 700 new student housing beds.

STIMULATING re l at i o n s repairing existing connecting design YEAR LEVEL__ 3ND UNDERGRADUATE PROFESSOR__ ROBERT HOGAN Coffee is a delicious stimulant for those in need of inspiration and energy, but what if we view coffee as a lifestyle? In some aspects, coffee is a lifestyle. Walk into a coffee shop in New York and the atmosphere is electric. There are visual artists, musicians, innovators, and more; all in one location. The truth is, coffee, as well as coffee shops, are inspir- ing and provides an undeniable energy, pun intended. Many of today’s buildings are massive structures built by devel- opers who are not as interested in the planning of an area as they are in the amount of square feet they can profit from. Repairing this discon- nection within areas, such as strip malls, is an ad- ditional, and valuable, intent of this coffee shop, connect- ing and repairing the urban structure.FROM LEFT TO RIGHT; Coffee shop’s final fa-cade and pedestrian walk up area.

REJUVINATEseamless addition-connecting design stereotypesYEAR LEVEL__ 3RD UNDERGRADUATE PROFESSOR__ ROBERT HOGAN In an attempt to reinvigorate Clemson Univer- sity’s student living, a modern master plan for the Stu- dent union is in order. Having redesigned this valu- able area in a series of “cuts, lifts, and overhangs”, the new student union is a vision of the campus of the future. Mixed use buildings, sidewalks, and terracing form a “central park” that is lined with trees. Featuring areas that are private, pub- lic, protected from weather, out in the open, convenient, and exciting, there is only one envisioning left, buildings within the plan. The master plan features a series of buildings that are dedicated to student residences. From these, there is one that will be solely for upper-class students. Currently, Clemson is trying to keep more upper-class students on campus, and away from the apart- ments that seem to overtake a local town. These apartment complexes feature some very enticing amenities, including; swimming pools, gyms, hot tubs, personal bathrooms and bedrooms. So what will it take for students to stay on campus longer?

  18. 18. 5,6 This rejuvenation is all about what entices the youth. Large common areas, private bed- rooms, modern living arrange- R ments, and “condo” style living, all 6 work together to prove to students that living on campus can be cool. As for the concept of the structure, it is an extension of the vision of the 5 Master plan.
