Transcript of connor a. brindza architecture portfolio

  • CAB CONNOR ANTHONY BRINDZAUNDERGRADUATE ARCHITECTURE PORTFOLIO2336 VICTOR STREET, CINCINNATI, OH, 45219, [email protected]

  • A selection of work from my undergraduate studies at the University of Cincinnati and my cooperative education semesters. This work represents my understanding of the design process as it developed.

    The purpose of this document is to share my own views on the possibilities of architecture through the design solutions presented, and to display my skills in graphic representation through both digital and analog processes.

    01 INTERNATIONAL STUDIES CENTER OF CINCINNATIMIXED USE // CINCINNATI, OH // DAAP // SPRING 2014The International Studies Center of Cincinnati is a large-scale housing and research center serving the University of Cincinnati and its surrounding community. It is located at the peak of a steep hill which also serves as a divide between the southern edge of UCs campus and low income, non-university housing. The site occupies the southeastern border of campus and acts as a gateway to any visitors coming from the highway (directly east of the site) or from downtown (directly south). The program offers an opportunity to break the urban division between the university and its surrounding residents by mixing a research and housing facility for visiting academics with new affordable housing and a public park. The ISCC includes studios, fabrication labs, and amenity facilities for researchers, university and local resident housing, large gallery and auditorium spaces, and a public park.

    The International Studies Center of Cincinnati is a large-scale housing and research center serving the University of Cincinnati and its surrounding community. It is located at the peak of a steep hill which also serves as a divide between the southern edge of UCs campus and low income, non-university housing.

    The broad range of program elements were categorized into three groups: public, semi-public, and private. Each category became its own mass; the public containing the auditorium, gallery, and reception; the semi-public containing the research facilities and amenities; and the private consisting solely of the housing, which was split into two bars. The masses were then shifted away from the street based on their category-public remaining flush with the site edge, private being set back the furthest (Fig. 01). The resulting geometry was then broken down into planar elements (Fig. 02). The north and south edges of each mass became a vertical plane which was projected onto the site twice (Fig. 03). The intersections of the planes became defining edges for volumetric elements in the park (Fig. 04).
