Building Sections AssemblyWall Building Section Perspective Project Description The goal is to design a single-unit living quarter on Washington avenue, Houston, that can also function as a public gathering spot in order to highlight the social aspect and nightlight culture of Washington avenue. The concept is purism, which includes only cubes with transparent facade at different size to create a straightforward clean floor plan. The cubes act as the positive space of the projects, which include all the main programs while all the negative space between the cubes serve public spaces. 3

  7. 7. Recreation Facility forWoundedWarriror Project Project Concepts ConnectivityBalance Accessibility Based on the core values and the Wounded Warrior Project programs, the facility will have three main values that will facilitate the veter- ans with the best benefits: Balance - Connectivity - Accessibility The project is designed to be reasonably proportional between spaces and programs. Each space will be well connected with each other for easy access and engagement. The swimming pool is the buidling core and other programs are arranged around the pool with reasonable proportion to maintain the balance between spaces and building size.There are two types of activities: physical activities and psychological activities Besides internally engaging with each other through the pool courtyard and the arch circulation, the building also engages with the outside through transparent facade. There are only two main circulations in the buidling along the core. Although circulation is not orthogonal, it still keeps the simplicity of accessbility from space to space. 6
  8. 8. Project RequirementsDesign Strategies Massing Angle Manipulation Shape Transformation Core Formation The project is required to address basic design issues of construction, materiality and life safety. Beyond that, the technical aspects of accessibility, structure, code requirements and environmental control systems must all work together to form a complete design solution. In addition, the project also needs to be explored more carefully into the potential architecture has for complex social impact. The challenge is to interpret and execute a universal space for a specific user group with the intent to honor those served. The design is expected to address the fundamental design problem to a high level of resolution, as well as set an ambitious personal design agenda that challenges the abilities and insight acquired over the previous years of study. Formal strategies related to landscape, light or a transformative process like procession,growth,emergence and evolution could become tools in addressing the values and needs of the clients.

The program proposes to have new mixed-used cultural center; serving as an extension of the existing heritage core, and a new housing complex, formed by the extension of the city housing grid.The initial band is then multiplied to create a series of program,adapting to the city traffic flow.By reflecting different urban planning styles of the city, the project aims to sensitively extend the existing urban block morphology with appropriate programmatic mixes. 12

  19. 19. Future City - HOUSTON Project Requirements I-45 & Gulfgate intersection programs analysis Sectional programs analysis The project requires students to research and analyze the city of Houston in order to identify problems that the city is facing. From their research and analysis, students are to pick one problem and one major area of the city to start designing a new prototype that could solve the city’s struggle. Moreover, the prototype has to show their impact on the city as a whole and how it can start shaping the city’s evolution in the future. The analysis aims to provide a full understanding of the area’s programmatic value. Most of the buildings are highly isolated from each other. Orientation of build- ings and relationship between them are not clear. Besides, park- ing lots take a significant amount of landuse, which is very in efficient while the city population is growing. The project proposes that all the programs to be categorized and merged in multi-functional towers while embedding them with living spaces to provide better accessibility and interaction. The highway is proposed to be reconstructed to serve more transportation modes and become more pedestrian friendly. 21152015 2 1 3 21152015 To get a good understanding of the area in term of relationship between the highway and surrounding programs, it was necessary to look into the sectional condition. The programs are isolated from the higway with inefficient land use for parking lot. The project proposes multi-functional towers attach to the highway. Parking lot will be moved underground, allowing more vacant land for future development. Building footprint will be significantly reduced due to the new vertical orientation of categorized programs. 18

The data is later used to estimate how much the population will grow in the next one hundred years from now.A population projection is done in order to understand how much space and accommodation SHAREWAY will be able to provide for Houstonians. In order to gain a comprehensive understanding of Houston traffic volume on major highways of the city, the project also reviews the Annual Average Daily Traffic. This study helps understand current condition of Houston traffic in order to further investigate how SHAREWAY will be able to improve the city traffice condition 19

  22. 22. Project Concepts In the year of 2065, Greater Houston become Mega Houston, defined by the sprawling networks of suburbs, exburbs and high density corridors. Infrastructure across the city is failing. The housing developments sprawls are foreclosed. We can no longer afford our current models of mobility in financial, environmental and social terms. The traditional incarnation of the American Dream is equally outdated and precipitated the future development of the city. In 2115, as the population keeps rising and the crisis keeps putting pressure on urban development, within the infrastructural leftovers of the outdated dreams, lies the possibility of conceiving Mega Houston as highly orchestrated platform, from which we might find an alternate path for the American Dream. SHAREWAY, a new invention is staged for augmenting infra- structure that generates a new future of public and personal mobili- ty. To treat highway as a platform for divergent forms, a “street of desire” with attaching programs instead of a street that only serves traveling purposes. SHAREWAY aims to project the existence of Mega Houston through leveraging the highways as a platform to connect the unrelenting expanse of undifferentiated urban material. I-45 corridor is reimagined as the first platform for staging other infra- structural narratives and moments of political, social and spatial difference. With a strong focus on open space, nature, mobility and sustainability, the new Mega Houston will serve as a model for future developments. The plan is to combine all related program into one common area, embedded with living space, forming several multi-funcational towers, attaching to a multi-layered freeway. The newly proposed SHAREWAY will provide easy accessbility, variety of transportation modes and efficient landuse for future urban devel- opers.
