Dominion Two: urban adjacent object
Semesterübung WS 04/ 05 Universität für angewandte Kunst, Wien - Architekturentwurf 2, o. Univ. Prof. Greg Lynn
summer term will build on last semester's work on 1, 000, 000 m2
mixed-use complexes, focusing on greater organizational articulation.
More than last semester, the studio will focus on programmatic issues
of floor plate dimensions and programmatic adjacencies, while
continuing to develop integrated vertical and horizontal transportation
systems and structural concepts.
Our work on the Dominion
Center in Toronto last semester developed macro-scale programmatic
organizations from micro-scale structural concepts. This term, we will
begin with detailed programmatic potentials and necessities, producing
a comprehensive organization for the entire building, first in section
and then in plan. By the second week, we will review full sets of
organizational sections (single line, organizational, not construction,
drawings) that fulfil required heights and adjacencies and display a
comprehensive, three-dimensional organizational concept.
This work will then be revised and presented in plans and a stacking
model during the third week. The plans shall show a solution for the
area requirements and adjacencies as well as a spatial dialogue with
the intentions of the sections that have been developed in the first
