  • 2. DIS Architecture + Design Assignment 2 Fall 2014 Assignment Objectives Site Analysis Program Korteknie Stuhlmacher Architecten 2 Assignment You are to design a small object gallery that shows local Danish designer items such as ceramics, jewelry, glass, and timberworks. There are many small local designers in the area and the object gallery will be run on a collective basis. Furthermore, the gallery should add a sculptural gesture to the park and work as a hub that invites people to use the park and help create a more safe area by night. Objectives The primary objective of this assignment is to explore issues of context in an urban setting through the design of an infill building in Copenhagens Nordvest area. Learning Objectives To diagram, understand, and respond to an urban environment To explore connections between context/building, building/program, program/ users with respect to issues of functions, materiality, light, and scale. To transform a design concept into a concrete architectural proposal without losing the spirit of the initial concept Site The site is located in the more multicultural and gritty part of Copenhagen just on the border between Nrrebro and Nordvest. It is set in one of the arches under the raised railway a short distance from Nrrebro station. The arches are facing a small rundown public park and the surrounding buildings are a mixed typology of residential and factory buildings. Most of the arches are currently closed off, so no connections under the railway are possible. The area around Nrrebro station is currently undergoing a huge transformation with the new metro being built. The plan for the park is that it will become a place for urban farming and recreation, while the arches will create new connections between Nrrebro and Nordvest . Site analysis in diagrams (studio 1-2) The site analysis will occur in small teams of 2 students per group. Each group will carry out one aspect of the site analysis (1-4, listed below). Each group will then present their analysis results in a diagrammatic form in the studio, and the four presentations will establish an analysis library for the studio. 1. Movement and Connectivity. Record all movements through, around, and across the site, including bicycles, cars and pedestrians. Record all activity occurring in the public realm, i.e. seating areas, sport, or event areas, etc. Present your findings in color-coded diagrams. 2. Climate. Record the sun path over the site and account for seasonal changes in light penetration and shadows. Also record the wind exposure and noise conditions relative to the immediate context. 3. Landmark, Views, and Features. Record all particular landmark features, e.g. Church spires, gable ends, etc. by cutting key sections though the site and draw an outline elevation in order to record local architectural styles. Record the key views into the site and from the site looking out. 4. Proportions. Record key spatial dimensions and proportions, such as space between buildings (street width) and building heights. Cut key sections across and along the site, and remember to add a human scale indication. Program The footprint of the building is approximately 8.2 meters long, 8 meters deep, and 4.5-5.5 meters high. The new gallery should consist of ground floor + 1 mezzanine level + a covered outdoor area. At a minimum, the following elements and spatial allotments are required: Gallery area with front desk Take away coffee booth to serve park and gallery visitors Kitchenette Toilet Exhibition space and display furniture for gallery objects It is expected that the program is challenged and adjusted.
