Portafolio Fundamentals I: Saint Jean de Luz Aquarium

The Saint-Jean de Luz aquarium is a public aquarium located in the community in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department located in south-western France. This community has a bay situated to the east of the Bay of Biscay, which is the only sheltered bay between Arcachon and Spain. The aquarium houses tens of thousands of fish and other sea animals, representing several hundred species native to Spain and France. The experience not only consists on visiting several sea animals and learning about them, but also, the height of the building allows the guests to experience the bay, the river, and the beach on a whole new level. The building’s location and placement truly causes the people to appreciate what is around them. The circula¬tion from the base level to the top one is based on a glass elevator, which provides a sublime and exciting experience that pushes the viewers to contemplate the whole city. Most of the aquarium animals come from Biarritz (France), San Sebastian (Spain) and Saint-Jean de Luz (France). The building is made of a combination of glass, steel and wood, that sits on stone. Natural light is present through the whole building due to the glass. The interior has 8 sections, 6 in the main tower and two other sections in the back of the building. One of the back sections houses whale sharks, beluga whales, bottlenose dolphins and manta rays, and the other section is dedicated to maritime and marine heritage of South-western France. It also has a underground level where visitors can experience the animals up close.

  • 4. EXERCISE 1 ANALYSIS AND TRANSFORMATION OF BUILDNGS In a complete and successful work there are hidden mass-es of implications, a veritable world which reveals itself to those whom it may concern - which means: to those who de- serve it. -Le Corbusier Objective: to understand fundamental rela- tionships in buildings. Unearthing fundamen- tal relationships develops your fluency in the language of Architecture. As you begin to read Architecture more clearly your ability to speak Architecture will increase. second, to introduce me your individual ways of working, including how you define prob- lems and how you structure a coherent approach for achieving them.

  • 6. AXIS: A line established by two points in space, about which forms and spaces can be arranged in a symmetrical or bal- anced manner. SYMMETRY/BALANCE: The balanced distribution and arrangement of equivalent forms and spaces on opposite sides of a dividing line or plane, or about a center or axis EXERCISE 1 ANALYSIS AND TRANSFORMATION OF BUILDNGS GEOMETRY/PROPORTION: The comparative, proper, or harmonious relation of one part to another or to the whole with respect with magnitude, quantity, or degree. PARTI: The design idea or sketch which an architec- tural project will be developed. HIERARCHY of SPACES: The articulation of the importance or significance of a form or space by its size, shape, or place- ment relative to the other forms and spaces of the organi- zation. RHYTHM/REPETITION: A unifying movement characterized by a patterned repetition or alternation of formal elements or motifs in the same or a modified form.
  • 7. EXERCISE 2 SPACE: OPEN AND CLOSED Space is the medium of architecture. Working in this medium gives the architect an advantage in visualizing the effect of a design. - J. Friedman OPEN SPACE - CLOSED SPACE Almost Invisible / Almost Visible Less Formed / Formed Continuous / Discontinuous Dynamic / Static Objective: to introduce the degrees of enclosure of architectural space And to explore both open and closed space through 2D and 3D modeling. Trial 1
  • 8. Trial 3 EXERCISE 2 SPACE: OPEN AND CLOSED Trial 2
  • 9. EXERCISE 3 SERIAL SPACES There is an art to making what is oin be- tweend things become foremost in our consciousness. Objective: to continue to explore space making by generating a system of spac- es from a space(s). This process has two purposes. One, to create a space(s) which has a regulating geometry that allows extension and growth into a system (pattern) of spaces. And two, to demonstrate the common architectur- al design strategy of part to whole or room to building. - Centralized: a central, dominant space about which a number of secondary spaces are grouped. The Spatial/Formal Organizations: - Radial: a central space from which linear organizations of space extend in a radial manner. - Linear: a linear sequence of repetitive spaces.
  • 10. EXERCISE 3 SERIAL SPACES - Grid: spaces organized within the field of a structural grid or other 3D framework. - Clustered: spaces grouped by proximity or the sharing of a common visual trait or relationship.
  • 11. EXERCISE 4 SPACE: FROM PLAN TO SECTION Plan, section, and elevation are conventions common to the horizontal and vertical configurations of all buildings. Decisions made in one of these arenas can determine or influence the form of the other. - Roger H. Clark Objective: to continue the study and creation of space by exploring the spatial relationships be- tween plan and section. This process has two pur- poses. One, to continue the simultaneous develop- ment of your path plan and space toward spatial and planemetric clarity. And two, to create a path with a spatial sequence that is TRIAL 1 TRIAL 2 TRIAL 3 TRIAL 4
  • 12. EXERCISE 4 SPACE: FROM PLAN TO SECTION TRIAL 5 TRIAL 6 TRIAL 7
  • 13. EXERCISE 5 ENTRY MAKING One must try to design a thing in order to find out what the thing is. - T. Woods Objective: to design the main entry for your path. The entry condition will be generated from a transfor- mation of your repetitive structural path system and an appropriate entry image of your choosing.
  • 14. EXERCISE 6 TOWER MAKING The rich history of images associated with the idea of tower is matched by its specific formal presence. A tower presents a strong vertical against our ordinarily horizontal movement; its base and crest interact with ground and sky, while the connecting shaft mediates between them. J. Friedman Objective: to design and make a tower that grows out of your repetitive structural path system. The issues you will be exploring are form, scale and proportion.
  • 15. EXERCISE 7 BASE PLANE MAKING The articulation of the surface of the ground or floor plane is often used in architecture to de- fine a zone of space within a larger spatial con- text. -F. Ching Objective :to design and make a new base/ground plane for your path, entrance and tower. Your new base plane should clarify, strengthen and reinforce the unity between your path, entrance and tower, not destroy it. This exercise is de- signed to help you explore the space defining ability of the base/ground plane.

This is a demanding course that needs dedication and inspiration from students who take it. At the beginning of the course, I felt kind of lost and did not know what my professor expected forom me and from my assignments; however, I had my TA's that helped me through it. I felt frustrated a couple of times because I felt that nothing that I created was enough, but then I slowly understood what Prof. Wac- ta wanted from every single student of hers: to push them to do better. I used my imagination and creativeness a lot in this class and developed so many abilities and skills. You will only understand the complexity of this class if you take it. I am proud of what I had accomplished and could not be happier of what I have learned in this class. Hard work pays off.
