Charlotte Visit

Last week the Third Year Interior Architecture class had the opportunity to see the Gensler office in Charlotte as well as the newly-constructed Duke Energy Tower. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet professionals as well as take notes to help in our design of a skyscraper.

Tertia Precedent Diagrams: Meghan Kaufmann

Skyscraper precedent: Bank of America Tower, NYC

Workplace precedent: Lovejoy Building, Portland, Or

Precedent Analysis Diagrams: Carlos Smith

Above are my precedent diagrams for our tertia mock firm design competition. I chose to create the diagrams based on the most important information I took from my skyscraper and workplace precedents.

The skyscraper was about generating structural elements that influence the internal organization. My workspace was significant in its ability to generate a spatial mindshare; dissolving boundaries through the use of partition walls, low profile cubicles, exposed columns and clerestory windows. A psychological connection is also made by bold timber beams that run the ceiling, and a wooden floor that carries light across its luster.

Stockholm Skyline

Our current project is based on designing a 6o story skyscraper in Stockholm, Sweden for the Chicago Architecture Today design competition.
