  39. 39. SUPRA STUDIO // FALL 2011Exploring New Architecture Prototypes for High Risk Coastal Regions in the USA
  40. 40. THE STUDIO JOINS THOM MAYNE’S “SUPRA STUDIO” Culture Now investigates the contemporary American condition to shift perspectives in struggling U.S. cities.“We (and by this I mean scientists first) are beginning to see that those organizationsonce called metaphorically alive are truly alive, but animated by a life of a larger scopeand wider definition. I call this greater life "hyperlife." Hyperlife is a particular type ofvivisystem endowed with integrity, robustness, and cohesiveness -- a strong vivisystemrather than a lax one. A rain forest and a periwinkle, an electronic network and aservomechanism, SimCity and New York City, all possess degrees of hyperlife” Kevin Kelly THREE CITIES ARE EXAMINED:
  41. 41. For this year’s PPD studio we join the Supra Studio and study these three Coastal cities to investigatehow intelligent data collection and re-use of materials can create a more responsive/responsible environment. Robotic collection systems, automated collection of trash and/or pollution [oil] as well as the recycling of those materials are to be carefully examined for their potentials in designing [con]temporary and adaptable units for sustainable coastal regions. These units will challenge conventional ideas of recycling and re-useof materials within an architectural context and expand the research into new modes/models of design, which form a deeper ecology between technology and nature, production and consumption, parts and material. In order to achieve this, three design aspects will be particularly highlighted: Complex organizations, material behavior, and component intelligence COMPOSITE MATERIALS AND BEHAVIORAL LOGIC

LIMITROPHE  DRYLANDS  Drylands Design Competition is sponsored by the California Architectural Foundation and the Arid Lands Institute. Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of how well they respond to scarcity and volatility of water supply, reduce energy consumption, promote social equity, and project a new future for the West.  Project type and site are open.Jurors are Teddy Cruz, Shannon Nichol, Enrique Norten, Michael Rotondi, Greg Otto, Tom Anglewicz, Mary Griffin.
  46. 46. approach:The studio will develop a territorial framework plan and physical designs for selected sites and prototype elements that engage water bodies and infrastructure, and enrich the context conditioned by them. MAPPING, MODELLING, FIELD WORK AND ANALYSIS • map and model a rich data set, including geomorphology, depth to water table, soil salinity,  magnitude of flood events, inundation frequency, vegetation types • interpret findings with guidance from experts  • explore sites with local guides and master the science of key processes • interview people who can help identify the issues of the territoryTERRITORIAL FRAMEWORK PLAN, INTERVENTION SITES AND CONCEPT • build a set of arguments that responds creatively to the context and  stakes out a compelling program • create a coherent large‐scale framework planSCHEMATIC DESIGN AND BOARD DEVELOPMENT >> SUBMISSION 12 / 15 • develop physical design for selected sites, prototypical elements and processes • refine clarity and immediacy of visualization on competition boards

  48. 48. designed ecologies seminarconceptual, artistic and technical dimensions of ecology as a source of invention in design“Nature contains the history of the evolution of matter, life, and man. It is the arena of past, present, and future.It exhibits the laws that obtain. It contains every quest that man can pursue. It tells every important story thatman would know. Therein lie its richness, mystery, and charm.” —Ian McHarg
