  3. 3. 5 PROFESSIONAL WORKS ALTERNATIVE DESIGNWORK RENDERING& TECHNICAL CREATIVEWORKS &PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT MANAGEMENT The nature of a wheelchair facility is one of rehabilitation and of learning. It should provide the user with comfortable environments suitable for the different stages of their adaptation to a new wheelchair. The scheme of the project surrounds on two outdoor spaces: the public concourse fronting on Water Street and a private courtyard in the back enclosed by the building. The Public Concourse aims to be a space that creates a dialogue with the Cambridge community and allow users to interact with the local society. The private courtyard looks to provide the user with a peaceful regenerative environment and also a place where beginners or less confident users can practise using their chairs at their own pace.

Reflecting how the chair adapts to the users’ needs, the building is design to transform according to the occupants’ needs for the space. To accomplish this, a modular panel system is used for the construction of the building which allows for quick construction and flexible components that allow for the transformation of space. Structural Design Character           To take advantage of the site’s location close to the river, the second level gym floats above the public concourse overlooking the berm to the scenic view of the river’s edge while providing shade for the public area. The public concourse is landscaped to resemble a forest and with the reflective surface on the face of the first level of the building the ground plane gives the illusion of a natural field of trees. The bar of gym with the 2m deep shading façade thus float in midst of the forest of trees with a great natural scenic view.

  9. 9. 16 ACADEMIC PROJECTS PROFESSIONAL WORKS RENDERING& TECHNICAL CREATIVEWORKS &PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT MANAGEMENT B L O O Exploded Axonometric - Joint Detail Technical Drawings Origami Chair: a partner project to design a chair for an origami master. There is pattern to everything in the universe, be it the orthogonal lines of a grid or the complex forms of a flower. By exploiting the properties of geometry, and manipulating their forms in three dimensional space, a chair can be created that is comfortable, portable, and transformable. The design inspired by the geometric forms of the interlocking polyhedra, the organic forms of unfolding rose petals, and the shape, texture and configurations of the chinese lantern. The final chair was made with ½” plywood and paper fabric. Bloom ALTERNATIVE DESIGNWORK CNC cut sheet for plywood frames and fabric cut sheet for folding 12 B L O O M Cut sheets 48” 59” 40” All profiles are made from 1 sheet of 60”x60” plywood by arranging the profiles in a radial pattern in order to maximize the efficienct use of material. All folds and angles for the fabric cutsheet are calculated based on the geometry of the structural profiles to ensure all sheets are identical. 17
