The building will in return still represent the local tradition and style facade that has been there for generations. but allows for a new vision. and a new methodology for building which will become the signature of a new ownership and a new attraction in the Sarasota area.8 week design project Seeking a more ambitious program and concept than the current proposal. the new SMOA proposal seeks to keep what is important of the old. This in return will give a new vision and path towards a more modern community. This being the case and due to the lack of upkeep on the building and its current deteriorating condition. The current building under review is an old Gothic style building constructed in 1927 with a architectural style that represents its methodology during the time of constructon. SMOA strives to create a scheme which allows the community to hold onto a locally iconic building constructed in the 1920’s. but will now act in a way such as a lantern. * View out front in the new sculpture garden . This proposal seeks to find the common ground between respect for an existing condition. but on the interior of the brick facade one would find nothing more than a steel framework. and juxtaposes this with the new. one that will revitalize the local art scene. lighting up the old facade from the inside and situating a large gallery space closer to the highway on the outside. The current Sarasota High School main campus building acts almost like a wedding cake in that it boasts a grand facade which demonstrates an elaborate Gothic like proposal.Sarasota Museum of Art Advanced Design A Studio | Professor Michael Halflants .

the study of natural light entering the spaces becomes a key aspect. The grand promenade to the museum’s main entrance would take you along side the existing building and would allow one to experience the exterior art pieces as well as the grounds itself. The sketch to the right is an example of the thoughts on light entering the proposal. As a museum which houses a multitude of works.Initial Concept Model Keeping the historic and locally Iconic brick facade intact. The gesture also calls for a sculpture garden in the front of the museum which acts as a transition space between parking and museum in addition to acting as a buffer between the highway and the museum. 14 | 15 . the proposal seeks to construct around the old Gothic walls as well as inside of them.
This space will then become a path that visitors can take to experience the building and allow themselves to be caught in a transitional moment between old and new. proposed contemporary structure proposed sculpture garden existing brick facade 16 | 17 . The facade of the old building will then be rehabilitated and preserved. In this manor. The existing brick facade will be the only existing piece of the structure left untouched. the proposal calls for the interior of the structure to be completely gutted and removed. the modern design will be constructed on the interior of the old Gothic facade and will leave an 8’ gap between the old brick and the new curtain glass wall.scale: 1/32” = 1’ .

At the southern west corner of the proposal. visitors can experience the old building facade by walking adjacent to it as well as through it at certain points.The Space Between Between the existing facade and the new constructed environment.
As vehicles pass by at night in downtown Sarasota, the streetscape illuminates with life as the new SMOA facade claims its identity. Returning to the original concept, the building will still boast the intricate Gothic architecture of the old, but now will be celebrated as the new addition highlights the old through a benevolent marriage of what once was and now exists. The building will begin to speak about the blending of architectural styles as it proceeds to reveal the layers of time. The cities existing contextual conditions evoke the notions of a community searching for a renewed narrative, one that exposes the inherent beauty of the environment through a celebrated demeanor. Such aspirations could not come to fruition unless an emphasis is placed on a respect of the past, as well as a willingness to look towards a future that is identifiable with the present congregation. An architectural appreciation for what once was can become a daunting task. It is our obligation that we begin to effect the immediate in a manor that is respectful, so that the new architectural vocabulary is not an intrusion, but instead a benefactor which advocates the rich character that is the place.

The Conceptual Form
Advanced Design C - Urban Design Studio Full Semester Project - Distinguished Professor Jan Wampler (MIT) Design Team: Joshua Deacon Leonardo Morantin Derek Pirozzi
Beginning to form an attitude towards the question “why is this place,” an initial concept and idea about space was formed with also and attitude about objects and buildings. The first iterations of thoughts on space were playful in manor and allowed for a freedom of expression to form. The first set of studies were done so in a manor that the groups proposal could find information about constructing space from multiple different avenues. Constructing and carving through multiple city blocks took a rigor in the process which could help the creation of parks, plazas, and community spaces to grow in a rational manor. Junk Model By utilizing this freedom of expression, the group was able to branch out and for a new thought on process and making. With the use of parts from machines such as a printer, a cell phone, a fax machine, a monitor, and other electrical devices, the team was able to construct the Barrio out of recycled parts. This became a very informative process and allowed for the design to progress fluidly.

Creating an anthropomorphic skin system which allows for interaction with the adjacent pedestrian. The concept of FLEX came from the idea of having a responsive system. When one approaches the wall system, the wall in return will acknowledge your presence and give off a type of response. In the case of FLEX the response would be this mean of embracing the user in some form. When approaching the skin system, The wall will acknowledge you presence by expanding towards your direction. This is done in a sense that mimics an embrace. The wall is responsive and welcomes the interaction by expanding. Once the expansion happens, The module units will then begin to separate allowing light to shine through the revealed perforations. As you come closer to the wall the more the system expands and the more light is let out onto your presence. Acting in almost a human fashion, the wall is responding and accepting your interaction.

Around this building situates dense vegetation which provides a strong cover for the eye institute.

As you enter the house you are embraced by the thick main structural lime stone wall as you pass through the walls openings and make you way up onto the second floor.

The large panel in the back of the residence can be moved and rolled to the full extent of the glass. It is for this reason that the sturcture should adapt a type of versatility that would make living in the environment more enjoyable. the reason why they moved to the state in the first place. One must also realize that Florida provides a very fickle climate as well. At times it can be freezing when you wake up and hot later in the day. Florida still boasts a beautiful sub-tropical atmosphere which should constantly be taken advantage of through contemporary residential architecture built in this state. Although occasionally hot and humid. this in return provides more shade as well as privacy. that allows for natural light to penetrate deep into the home. *Perspective looking towards the rear of the home from the back yard 172 | 173 . The goal of the Van Beveran Residence is to provide expansive open spaces. This experience will not only provide a healthy living environment. but will also give the owners a more meaningful relationship with their surrounding context.

There are various times of the year where residence can sit outside and enjoy the climate. or the other way around.
