Mark Wamble and David Costanza’s 301 studio investigates the operative role of geometry, structure, material, and manufacturing as a synthetic building system — extracted from a series of case studies — and deployed as a prototype for a boathouse. The case study that Phoebe Cox analyzed was Church of Christ the Worker designed by Eladio Dieste, a thin masonry vault structure with serpentine walls. The complexity of this system lied in the false work. She began by analyzing earthen molds and how they could be used to create a thin shell structure. #ricearchitecture #architecturemodel #boathouse at Rice University

In Ron Witte's 501 final review, students presented designs for a Center for Artifact Studies. Carolyn Francis' project, "Campus Delineated," proposes a re-situation of public programming, characterized by openness, between two masses of restricted access. This new position redefines circulation as a mode of display for the public, allowing visitors to “burrow” through areas formerly designated as private and creating a new vista at the level of Rice’s iconic tree canopy. #ricearchitecture #architecturestudent #archi

In Troy Schaum's totalization studio, students presented designs for a mixed-use micro-housing project in Brooklyn, NY. Featured is Leyuan Li and Neha Sahai's "Stair Game," a housing project that aims to return collectivity, domesticity, and specificity to the space and inhabitants of micro-housing. By aggregating clusters of micro-units (housing units that are smaller than 300 SF) in a shifted section, they produce a central atrium and a public “stairscape" with occupiable platforms and visible common areas that allow for new and varied types of collectivity across all scales of the project. Meanwhile, the units themselves become unique modules in which poche spaces become moments of performative domestic activity that allow the unit to be flexible and self-sufficient. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #rajwf18 #totalization #troyschaum #microhousing #architectureschool #soarch #critday #imadethat #thebna #architectureape #archimodel #architecturemodel #archisource #rendering #architecturaldrawing #nextarch #superarchitects at Rice University School of Architecture

In Dawn Finley's 503 Core III studio, students presented designs for an urban elementary school in Houston. Brendan Carr's project, "Occupied Connections" proposes a vertical massing in a site that is otherwise horizontal. Through consolidating the project's program, the classroom spaces are offered democratic access to light and air. Multipurpose classrooms along the ground floor can be opened to the public for workshops, exhibitions, or night classes. The circulation system utilizes shared secondary programmatic elements, (ie. labs, a library, music rooms) as nodes, interspersed throughout the classroom block to encourage relationships between grade levels. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #rajwf18 #architectureschool #soarch #critday #architectureape #imadethat #rendering #architecturaldrawing #archisource #dawnfinely at Rice University School of Architecture

"In Ron Witte’s 501 final review, students presented designs for an artifact based research institution located on Rice’s campus. Carrie Li’s project, “Connected Concavities,” brings internal building programming and external campus activities closer together. Multiple outdoor gathering spaces formed from the site surround a centralized interior artifact collection space, and corridors throughout provide passageways for light, views, and circulation, integrating the cultural institution into the existing fabric of the campus. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #rajwf18 #architectureschool #soarch #critday #rendering #architectureape #architecturedrawing at Rice University School of Architecture

In David Costanza’s 301 final review, the studio investigates the operative role of geometry, structure, material, and manufacturing as a synthetic building system — extracted from a series of case studies — and deployed as a prototype for a boathouse. Violet Li’s project, “The Float”, employs structural glass and carbon fiber roof systems used in her case study project, Steve Jobs Theater. While the Steve Jobs Theater buries all its programs underground, Violet improves the structural systems to develop it from one open floor plan to accommodate more complex spatial organization and more flexible programs. As shown in the taxonomy, different glass profiles produce distinct spatial qualities by separating spaces or suggesting individual zones. I also expanded the roofs from one bay to multiple bays. The value of this project is embedded in the taxonomy, which establishes flexibility in program and scale. The solution to the boat house problem is naturally derived from this index of possibilities, and thus presents itself as extremely exquisite and accurate. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #rajwf18 #soarch #critday #imadethat #architecturemodel #archisource #davidcostanza #nextarch at Rice University School of Architecture

#platrecommends speculation. Last week, @ricearch hosted two intense days of M.Arch thesis presentations. The projects ranged in scale and scope from the design of images of the interior of a room to the deployment of a series of community college campuses along LA’s Purple Line subway to a proposal that addresses the liminality of the U.S.-Mexico border, along with many other provocations. The conversations highlighted the strengths, weaknesses, and potentials of each project, but also evidenced the generational differences at work in identifying the tools and concerns of architecture RN. The group of thesis defenders shown above includes PLAT 7.0 Sharing’s co-Editors-in-Chief Francis Aguillard @fdaguillard and Sam Schuermann @schuersam, Managing Director Mona Elamin @monaelamin, Development Director Hillary Davlin @davlinh.dxf, and editor/transcriber Ryan Kiefer @ryan.kiefer.

The third in a four-semester sequence of the core undergraduate architectural design curriculum, Piergianna Mazzocca’s studio “The Punctuation Guidelines” explores the relationships of spatial ordering systems, program and context through an investigation of architectural thresholds. It conceives of architecture as the sum of real and imagined thresholds that will provide the means to understand and work with the problems posed by architectural program, structure, and context. This framework will allow us to explore architecture’s dialectical relationship between inside and outside and how the mediation between the two is organized by intentional in-betweenness. The final project for this studio is the design of a new building for the Houston Center for Photography. • • Yifei Zhang’s project proposes the use of a simple geometrical operation to simultaneously resolves programmatic requirements while responds to site conditions. In his project, the same operations are executed four times, and the four quadrants are intentionally positioned to create unique thresholds and thus a photography center dedicates to openness and community engagement. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #architectureschool #rajwf18 #piergiannamazzocca #archimodel #architecturemodel #soarch #architectureape #imadethat at Rice University School of Architecture

In Mark Wamble’s 301 final review, students presented designs for a boathouse based on innovative building technologies studied in studio. Anna Fritz’s project, “Boat + House,” is constructed of interlocking mass timber plates and arranged in an origami folding logic. The design utilizes this structural type to re-examine the traditional boathouse construction, form, and aesthetic. In her project, the complex roof and continuous shell structure house a series of interior rooms, sub-spaces, and poche moments rotating around a triple-height courtyard at its core. By weaving together these intimate and grandiose spaces, referencing cabin materiality, and playing on the traditional pitched-roof form, this building offers a domestic approach to the boathouse type. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #architectureschool #soarch #critday #imadethat #architecturemodel #archimodel #architectureape #archisource #markwamble #thebna #artifizi #nextarch #rajwf18 #MarkWamble at Rice University School of Architecture

In Ajay Manthripragada’s (@netoyen) sophomore studio, students designed a photography center on a site in the Menil campus. Justin Fan’s project proposes an interior organization and an exterior articulation generated by the radiality of the pentagon. In the lower half of the photography center, slight shifts in elevation create various degrees of natural light and ceiling compression from one gallery space to the next. The project’s central atrium addresses the studio’s concern with threshold, as it allows for circulation through the stepping galleries. Large lightwells connect the administrative spaces on the top floor to the galleries below. In addition to developing a different five-sided reading, the lightwells address the studio’s discussion of solid/void readings. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #rajwf18 #architectureschool #soarch #critday at Rice University School of Architecture

Happy New Year from @platjournal! ✌️! #platrecommends the typewriter art of Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt. Wolf-Rehfeldt was born in Saxony in 1932 and while living in the GDR made a variety of “typewritings.” Her biography on the @chertluedde website states that the work “could be seen as intricate studies of concrete poetry and linguistics, conceptual art, graphic design, architectural shapes and innovative combinations of language, symbols and visual forms.” She stopped making art after her husband Robert Rehfeldt passed and the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. Recently her work has received renewed interest, as seen in recent solo exhibitions, inclusion in documenta 14, and the 2016 monograph “Signs Fiction.” Her work is notable in the context of the upcoming issue of PLAT for the simplicity of its means of production (the limited format of the typewriter) that still, through her inventiveness, results in a universe of distinct forms and compositions. All images of Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt’s work are from the @chertluedde website, where much more of her impressive catalog can be seen. #simplicity #platjournal #ricearchitecture #ruthwolfrehfeldt #chertluedde #typewriterart #typewriter #concretepoetry #graphicdesign #textart #art #visualart #architecturejournal #hny #2019 at ChertLüdde

In Andrew Colopy and Danny Samuels’ Totalization studio, students designed two primary and two secondary dwellings on sites in Houston’s Fifth Ward to address issues of densification and affordability in the city. Margaret Hall and Hannah Perrino’s project, Cluster Collective, proposes a set of massings that are broken down to disguise hierarchy and then united by envelope. The open central space surrounded by kitchen program encourages a sense of community and collectivity among the residents, while the flexibility of the units caters to the diverse array of living arrangements needed in Fifth Ward. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #rajwf18 #architectureschool #rendering #architecturaldrawing #architecturemodel #soarch #totalization #imadethat #archimodel at Rice University School of Architecture

Graduate students Julie Klosterman and Rose Wilkowski’s final project from Will Cannady and Doug Oliver’s Totalization studio is for The Olympic Aquatic Center that consists of four swimming pools: competition, synchronized swimming, water polo, and diving. Conceptually, the project began by organizing the pools into a tree-like, concrete central structure that expresses the pools’ shape and volume as cantilevered platforms. The central tree is coupled with a zone of supplementary program along the east edge. The steel and glass double skin facade connects to the concrete slabs at selected points to allow the two structures to help support each other. Passive ventilation through operable panels in the double skin along with the sun shading screen reduces solar heat gain while still allowing natural light to flood the pool decks. Conditioned air feeds the pool spaces and spectators through a floor plenum at the perimeter of each slab while return air travels through the ceiling plenum of the supplementary program zone and is ducted back to mechanical levels. Formally, the tree acts as a sculptural central element compositionally balanced by a steel and glass envelope. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #rajwf18 #architectureschool #architecturemodel #rendering #architecturaldrawing #soarch #architecture #totalization at Rice University School of Architecture

For Troy Schaum’s 601 Totalization Studio, Yulong Li and Philip Niekamp play with frame and perception to engage micro housing in a way that both collapses and engages the experience of the city. The views formed by soft frames and gentle curves channel the macro experience of the city into the micro unit. At only 470 SQ FT, the linear units instead feel large and expansive, occupying both the north and south facades of the building, simultaneously facing both Brooklyn and Manhattan. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #architecturemodel #architecture #microhousing #micro #riceisnice #imadethat #soarch #troytalization #troyschaum #architectureschool #rajwf18 #totalization at Rice University School of Architecture

The 2019 Summer Traveling Fellowship proposals are due today for the students of Rice Architecture. For some inspiration, graduate student Jack Murphy, recipient of the John Crowder Traveling Fellowship, made a pilgrimage to see the built work of Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura. After visiting Souto de Moura’s chapel realized for the Vatican at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, Murphy spent time in Porto, Lisbon, and throughout northern and eastern Portugal. Of many highlights from Murphy’s travels, two notable experiences were the opportunities to stay in spaces designed by Souto de Moura: a small office renovation turned short-term rental in Porto, and the Pousada de Amares, a monastery converted into a hotel. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #architectureschool #willtravelforarchitecture #eduardosoutodemoura #architecture

From @ricearch Deadline for PLAT 8.0: Simplicity is December 1, 2018. • • In today’s chaotic world, simplicity grows virtuous. As an operational directive, simplicity forces the pursuit of the essential, where what matters is retained and what doesn’t is tossed overboard. Simplicity is at once classic and trending; ambitious and naïve; utopian and pragmatic. • • On the other hand, simplicity is not what it pretends to be. In architecture, it takes a lot of effort for work to “appear” attractively simple, leading to opaque expressions that seem elementary but in reality are anything but. Further, too much simplicity flattens nuance. Simplicity lies. • • To be dumb about it, simplicity isn’t simple. PLAT 8.0 asks: How can contemporary understandings of simplicity further architectures that prize directness without sacrificing subtlety? How is simplicity an ethical concern as well as an aesthetic one? Is there a difference? • • Go to platjournal.com/submissions for more information. Send PLAT your essays, projects, case studies, interviews, oral histories, fictions, drawings, anecdotes, jokes, memes, etc. Please share this call with those who may be interested. The deadline for abstracts is December 1. Send material to editor@platjournal.com. • • #platjournal #platrecommends #simplicity #ricearchitecture #architecture #architecturejournal

“Complexity” is a conversation about the myriad definitions for architectural complexity at Rice Architecture. In advance, the faculty was asked, "What is complexity for you, and how does it influence your work?" Responses were printed and fed through a structure designed by Assistant Professor Michelle Chang and constructed by local builder Alberto Bonomi. The installation will be on view for the next few days in the Smith Courtyard of Anderson Hall, Rice University. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #michellechang #complexity #architecture at Rice University School of Architecture

#platrecommends dirty realism. Seen here is SANAA’s Moriyama House (2005) as photographed by @iwanbaan (1), and the concluding sentences of Stan Allen’s essay “SANAA’s Dirty Realism” from 2010 (2). The term, lifted from Jameson, describes an architecture that “opens itself to the unplanned chaos of contemporary urban life.” It is concerned with the stuff of life at the same time it minds the details of its realization; Allen writes that SANAA’s “claim is not to privilege social effects over material practices, but rather to assert that social facts and material culture can never be disentangled.” Is dirty realism simple or, as Allen argues, qualitatively complex? Does the distinction grow uninteresting given an understanding that collapses any binaries into the flattened realm of “life itself?” What about dirty realism’s offspring now—is there a dirtier or dirtiest realism waiting to be theorized? PLAT wants to hear your thoughts and ideas on this theme of simplicity. Send them to editor@platjournal.com by our extended deadline of Dec. 15, 2018. #simplicity #platjournal #ricearchitecture #sanaa #moriyamahouse #iwanbaan #dirtyrealism #stanallen #fredericjameson at The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites, Los Angeles

In “Seeing Like a State,” James C. Scott chronicles the legibility and simplification that enabled governments to organize their lands and citizens. Scott also addresses the problematic simplification at work in the planning schemes of Le Corbusier, a series of projects that sought to visually clarify the functions of the city into separated districts. This reorganization, Scott argues, not only creates bureaucratic control over the built environment but over the lives of citizens as well—a position that brings to mind a relevant line from John May: “The notion that there is a ‘solution’ to our current predicament reveals an already instrumentalized conception of thought, which imagines life first and foremost as a set of problems in need of planning and management: a truly negative conception of life.” What about simplicity now? Is it a relevant term given the way and world in which we work? How is it productive? How is it problematic? What are specific situations in which simplicity becomes operative or strategic? How is simplicity at once an aesthetic and ethical directive? PLAT wants to hear your thoughts on and around this theme. Send ideas by December 1 to editor@platjournal.com. Images are from “Seeing Like a State” and show maps of the Khotynitsa village before and after the Stolypin land reforms in Russia (1906-17). #simplicity #platjournal #ricearchitecture #platrecommends #seeinglikeastate at Rice University School of Architecture
