  4. 4. Forecasting Chance Architecture + Landscape + Weather B. Arch Thesis 2012 Jason Austin and John James Pron, Thesis Advisors Sneha Patel | Coordinator Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 | Semester IX and X | 30 weeks The making of architecture is tied to human experience and site. Weather events are also linked to site locality while providing intense human experience. Although architecture has the ability to wait for all sorts of weather events to occur, architects tend to resist processes of weathering. This thesis seeks to manipulate weather conditions with built form to ecologically and culturally remediate the landscape of the former Scranton Iron Furnaces. These conditions are created within a proposed train station due to a station’s semi-enclosed spaces that must allow weather in. This scenario examines how natural weathering processes can develop an architecture and landscape that both reacts to the latent history of a post-industrial site and the future needs of the city.

The station is designed to respond to these shifts as a way heighten user’s perception of weather as they way for the train. The specific atmosphere or mood of a space is tied to this relationship of time, season, and weather. These processes work in a looping pattern where certain uses change hourly, daily, seasonally, and annually as shown in this drawing. 24 T Seasonal Programs T T T ice Atmosphere: Cool, Damp, Dark, Fog Slow movment due to Fog Thickened Light Quality, Dew Collection Surface |Saturation studies: Collection, Dripping, Staining Atmosphere: Cool, Damp, Bright Low activity, Slow movment Collection at enclosures and sun, building as shelter Snow |Ice studies: Collection, Drifting, Dripping, Staining
  6. 6. Manipulating Site Conditions The above drawing locates the key experiences from studying weathering on site. This was performed not scientifically, but through observations to find the points of interest between the weather, the city, and its historical artifacts These conditions were manipulated to retain more water on site and process it on its way to the river. The path of the water, from the top of the train shed to Roaring Brook overlaps several times with a meandering path between the upper and lower station. The architecture funnels weather occurrences to the landscape where they are then filtered or retained. Markers throughout the site gauge these changes over time.

  9. 9. Archive House Juiliet Whelan, Critic Fall 2008 - Semester III - 7 weeks “Place of Display” She wants to throw them away, but she can’t bring herself to do it. She continually tells herself “what if I need that paper? What if I need that reference? What if I can’t find it…ever…ever again… and I need it?” She rarely finds time to do much else. Work, study, organize, reorganize. A woman obsessed with keeping her work, keeping her notes, keeping everything. She needs a place for all of her books, notes, everything. A rowhouse is built as an archive.
  10. 10. Shaping the Exterior Skin With a North facing facade, a series of bands were developed to cut lateral openings into the front face of the building. The width and number of bands are further articulated to provide natural light at certain times of the day within the building. The cladding also projects out to become the front steps.
  11. 11. Transitions Inside and Out The project takes shape both in section and through the exterior skin system. As the exterior bands contort to create window openings, they also move from the exterior to the interior to become the storage points for the archive.

In this map all of Philadelphia’s rapid transit types, Regional Rail, Subway, and Surface Trolley are overlain on the same map. This allows for a better visualization of where these systems overlaps. The way they are notated also establishes Philadelphia’s previous map colored the subway system while leaving the regional rail as an underlay of grey lines. By establishing the two as equals, the system feels more comprehensive and usable. By adding in the exact locations of the trolley lines, which were previously on separate maps, the system locates additional transfer points that would have gone unnoticed by most transit users. 4b Haverford Ardmore Narberth North Philadelphia Zoo Overbrook Ogden T1 3 Haverford 48th-Lancaster 63rd 60th 56th 52nd 30th Street Station Powelton 46th 40th 3 22nd 19th 1 10 8 6 Airport 5 Spring Garden Market East Station 13th City Hall15th Street 11th 8th T1 T2 T3 T4 Lombard-South Ellsworth-Federal Tasker-Morris Snyder Oregon At&t Station Eastwick 1 2nd Tacony Bridesburg RichmondWestmoreland T5 Berks FrankfordDelaware T5 City Hall Camden Walter Rand Trans.

Parkview 69th Street Terminal Philadelphia’s multimodal transit system, with rapid rail and regional rail is quite similar to Paris’s Metro and RER system. The Paris RER is their regional rail system, but once it enters Zone 1 it operates under the same pay scheme as all other Zone 1 vehicles. This allows for a seamless and free transfers between all types of transit within center city. Philadelphia could operate in a similar fashion allowing for all types of vehicles to become a singular system. With Philadelphia implementing a new payment method that uses electronic cards instead of tokens, seamless transfers between different transit types will become possible.This creates a more comprehensive system that includes all types of rapid transit. 9 East Falls Allegheny Bryn Mawr Bryn Mawr Haverford Ardmore Ave. Ardmore Jct.

  13. 13. Typewriter’s Lounge Rashida Ng, Critic Fall 2010 - Semester VII - 15 weeks “Repository” The typewriter as an instrument for creation (writings) and a machine for immediate production (print) becomes the departure point for a space that incubates the tendencies of writers and their work. The spaces take hints from the aesthetic nature of the typewriter itself. Its rhythm, kinetics, light qualities, and the ability for immediate print all take specific roles in the building’s development and program. Unlike the computer, which separates word processing from printing, the typewriter collapses them into one device. This facility attempts to accomplish the same task, becoming a self-publishing center and writers collective. The TYPE-Writer’s Lounge becomes an arena for writers to create in solitude or converse with like minded individuals. Public and private workspaces allow writers to share their work with more people. At the same the ability to self-publish on site allows for the work to be freely distributed.
  14. 14. Translating the Typewriter Spaces for writing are dependent upon proper lighting both natural and artificial. Due to the monolithic neighboring walls on both sides of the site, there are not many opportunities for standard apertures. To combat this portions of the building’s façade are extruded out to allow indirect light into the building. This also allows for oblique views from the interior to the exterior as a method to screen the neighboring buildings. This method of cutting into the building’s volume to allow opportunities for daylighting to enter is used both horizontally and vertically. A series of models and photographing them under strong light starts to conceive spaces and light qualities that are in the spirit of the typewriter itself Composing light and material qualities of the typewriter A series of models used to recreate the light qualities embeded in the typewriter
  15. 15. Building as Typewriter In the spirit of the typewriter the building’s program contains spaces for writing and spaces for prinitng under one roof. Workstation pods, the places where writers can most efficiently work operate with the flexible lighting for reading and writing. The building is also equipped with spaces for both mass printing and publishing work. So the ideas and writings produced here can become widespread more easily. With an office floating above the reading room, this Writer-inResidence becomes the face of the facility. Over the course of the year public critiques are held of the work they are being developed on-site. Several workshops are also held and led by the Writer-inResidence.

Projects usually involve the collaborative efforts of all three design practices to create solutions to complex urban spaces. The work typically falls in between fields, projects that are a mix of landscape and architecture, a mix of landscape and planning, or a planning project that leads to architectural work. These experiences have cemented my interest in becoming both an architect and landscape architect. Although the three projects shown represent the more graphic aspects of this work, we do work on projects in their entirety. I am currently doing construction projects for the first two projects. Building Renovation and Streetscape strategy for 8th and Filbert Street Garage
  17. 17. 8th and Filbert Streetscape and Garage Renovation WRT | Wallace Roberts and Todd This project is envisioned as a signature work that will serve as the model for the Authority’s other garage improvements in Center City. Through aesthetic improvements, lighting, storm water collection, and recycling of existing materials for reuse this project seeks to become a model for sustainable garage renovations. The garage underpass is also reimagined as an outdoor room and a new civic space for the neighborhood. Project team: Joe Healy (Principle) Modesto Bigas-Valedon (Architect) Keiko Cramer (Landscape Architect) Timothy Nawrocki (Designer) Role: In charge of modeling the entire project along with all drawings, renderings, diagrams, and graphics under the guidance of Joe, Keiko and Modesto. The three also sketched and helped me understand the detailing of the project both in terms of architecture and landscape. I am currently performing some construction administration of phase 1 of the project with Modesto. Located along 8th street, this garage sits at one of the four major access points to the city from the interstate.
  18. 18. Eager Square WRT | Wallace Roberts and Todd Eager Square is a multi-building apartment project in Baltimore designed to bridge the gap between a small residential neighborhood and a large college campus. The project is composed of two buildings, on both sides of Eager Street. The project also seeks to define the street between through a new streetscape strategy. Project team: Joe Healy (Principle) Modesto Bigas-Valedon (Architect) David Gamba (Architect) Timothy Nawrocki (Designer) Role: In charge of modeling and drawing the project. I also created all renderings, diagrams, and graphics. I am currently working on construction documents with David Gamba.

  19. 19. St. Luke’s Manor WRT | Wallace Roberts and Todd A larger adaptive reuse project that WRT has won several awards for its successful reimagination of an old hospital into a school and residence. The project was lacking a larger graphic to showcase the scope of the entire project. I created this by modeling the exterior shell of the building and the entire second floor. I then overlaid the two to create this revealed view.

  21. 21. Sloped Approach Stewardson Fellowship in Architecture 2012 Recipient These are some images from the boards I submitted for the 2012 Stewardson Fellowship, a 10 day individual competition between Pennsylvania’s six architecture schools. The project sought to make several sloped connections between the street and the viaduct park above. The series of slopes were embedded into both the architecture and the landscape to create multiple connections. A large sloped park was conceived as the main entrance to the viaduct. This created an elongated transition between the busy street and the more desolate park above. The winner receives a $10,000 travel prize. I chose to visit the works of several architects that I believe successfully merge landscape and architecture. I spent 3 months travelling across central Europe studying works by Peter Zumthor, Carlos Scarpa, Peter Latz, and West 8. My lecture upon return was entitled “Architecture influenced by Landscape, Landscape influenced by Architecture.”

Lindsay Bremner, Critic Spring 2010 - Semester VI - 15 weeks “Institute for Extra-Continental Antagonism” SINGAPORE Due to the rising interest in the protection of each nation’s oil supply, much activity is occuring in the Indian Ocean; a major oil route. Naval Imperialism is re-emerging. Instances of Antagonism between nation states is common and with the impending expiration of the US Navy lease on Diego Garcia, a space will be needed to conduct the negotiation of the island’s future use, a political arena emerges. The building, made of recylced oil tankers, becomes the prize. An interest in mapping the ocean grows. The site; a largely deserted island with a US naval base at the north end acts as the geographic location for several studies of mapping. The ocean, antagonsim, the tectonics surrounding ship breaking become characters in this exploration. 0 5,0 $23 00 0 ,0 AN RT PO IRF DA D EIL N IO AT OV EN R GARDEN ISLAND 35B$
  23. 23. Ship Breaking and Site Analysis Drawings for the initial site location and material make up of the arena. A series of abandoned oil tankers exist on the island, these become the building material for the project. A study into Indian Ocean Shipbreaking helps to see tectonically how the exterior skin develops as a collage of found objects. Through drawing the project finds a site on the island that allows for easy access by naval cruiser, and provides an easy escape by a smaller shallow water boat if necessary
  24. 24. Assembling the Arena The building forms from the parts of the oil tankers found on the island. These parts are welded together as a collage. A distance between the sleeping/dining quarters from the arena allows for the landscape between to become an additional space for politicking. The arena is also equipted with digresssion chambers that allow for less public negotiations between parties. These chambers exist both inside and in outside courtyards contained by the arena. Perspective Collage of Interior of Arena Plans and elevations were developed through both drawings and modelling
