Environment: Form & Feedback

3rd Year Fall 2018  \\  Water Community   \\  Six Miles Island, Sharpsburgh, PA

This project negotiates building forms and their organization within its urban and ecological landscape. By engaging social and environmental patterns, and identifying micro-climatic behaviors within the urban form we move towards the design of architectural interventions that translate across scales to give new shape to the contemporary city.

For this project, I went to the site and record/measure the sound level of different sound sources, analyzing the influence of both natural and artificial sound sources with some software. Combining these studies of sound with the terrain/landscape/slope studies for the island, a pattern is generated and the building form starts to emerge.
