My Architecture Monologue

Welcome to my architecture design journal. I am a student pursuing my postgraduate architecture diploma RIBA/ARB Part II in Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow School of Art.

Transparency

The open air debating chamber is the main political space in the proposal of new French parliamentary quarter. It allows public to acknowledge the law making procedure through visual and sound connection.

Conspiracy

The committee rooms are where politicians discuss and negotiate to work out more details about law proposals before it gets presented to all politicians and public in the debating chamber. The committee room is open to the public viewing, at the same time it is being watched and controlled by unknown authority behind the scenes.

Hierarchy

While all the political activities are happening below ground level, the towers at the edge of the urban walls house ministers’ offices, which overlooking the new French parliamentary quarter.

The building is a waste machine; it filters waste imported from all cities across France, and categorize them into various types and spaces. The last green land is now safe from any pollution, and people are ready to enjoy themselves in clean air.

Eidos | Carlo Bailey | Via

Located in east harlem, ‘eidos’ conceived by manhattan-based carlo bailey is an architect-free, prototypical self-sufficient community based sometime in the near future. the project is about managing difference and desire within a collective spatial condition. additive manufacturing technologies (seven axis robot – 3D printers) are employed to facilitate a housing complex that is the physical manifestation of its inhabitants wants. executed within a rigid rule-set of constraints, the design allows for maximum autonomy and expression. the rule-set consists of a series of algorithms, a DNA structure that is programmed into the robots, which feeds both environmental and human goals to enable the construction of units and infrastructure.

The organization of the complex aims to be as generic and uniform as possible. through analyzing the sun’s movement across the site, it helped to define the optimum placement of light wells and breaks in the grid – minimizing shadows and bringing light to the ground plane. cuts in the massing and grid are introduced to provide connections through to adjacent city blocks and extend manhattan’s layout. the market-place is located on the ground floor with the school lying on the two levels above. communal areas are strategically positioned adjacent to four vertical circulation cores and are intertwined with the housing units throughout the remaining complex.
