Occasionally. alliedstudio 2012-10-06T17:17:40-04:00 >2012-10-15T21:25:35-04:00 <p> Today some of us had the opportunity to attend the Open House NY tours of new theaters around the city. Since we are redesigning the black box theater at HSA, we are all faced with the task of understanding how to design these spaces for optimal acoustic quality, opportunity for flexible use of the space, appropriate materiality, and of course strong aesthetics.&nbsp;</p> <p> I went to the DiMenna Center for Classical Music designed by H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture on 37th street. The space was very inspiring and the tour was extremely informative. These are some of the most interesting things I learned:</p> <p> 1. The walls (and ceiling) of the performing space are not parallel in order to enhance acoustic quality. The ceiling is tilted upward and the walls tilt inwards towards the top.</p> <p> 2. The space is built as a box within a box. The space between the two boxes is accessible to allow for mechanical systems to be accessed, curtains to be drawn, concrete surroundings to be patched, recordi...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/58032907/stop-talking-draw Stop talking & draw alliedstudio 2012-09-25T22:20:48-04:00 >2012-09-29T19:05:57-04:00 <p> Our teams - Interior Designer, Lighting Designer &amp; Architect - develop ideas by talking through drawings - physical models, digital models, sketches, analytical perspectives, etc. &nbsp;- the ideas layer, concepts surface &amp; rich design ideas emerge.<img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ny/nyj77phhg9wvpba3.jpg" title=""></p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> -Tamara Yurovsky, Dual Degree M.Arch/MFA Lighting Design</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/57964008/a-glimpse-into-the-studio A glimpse into the studio alliedstudio 2012-09-24T22:00:46-04:00 >2012-09-30T19:14:07-04:00 <p> As of last week, we have now been paired off into interdisciplinary teams of three for the remainder of this project.

One of the many aspects explored in the past week and a half was the current electric lighting in the &nbsp;interior and exterior of the building.</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/on/onvm7idhesfgt3cc.jpg" title=""></p> <p> One aspect of our process: The particular section drawing shows the entry reception area. The green points/line show horizontal illumination (how much light on the floor) and the blue points/line show vertical illumination (how much light on the wall) in comparison to the red line, which shows current IES (Illuminating Engineering Society <a href="http://www.iesnyc.org" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://www.iesnyc.org</a>) recommendations. The measurements are in foot candles (FC) and are made by using an illuminance meter (the funky looking device pictured here). By placing the meter on the surface being measured, you can find out how much light is on that surface. The section graph helps us to understand if light levels are consistent across a surface and how the light levels compare to current recommendation...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/57186953/to-start-us-off To start us off... alliedstudio 2012-09-13T09:24:27-04:00 >2012-09-20T14:14:50-04:00 <p> I think (hope!) I speak for everyone when I say how excited our ALLIED Studio (made up of Masters students in the Architecture, Lighting Design and Interior Design programs) is to be collaborating with Harlem School of the Arts this semester as it looks ahead to plan for its next 50 years.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> We are now in the midst of the third week of this project and there has already been lots of exciting work that has been produced that we will look forward to share here over the course of the semester. In the meantime, here are some photos of the site from our first visit to the school.</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/jy/jy43q4c4wmz3iiy5.jpg" title=""></p> <p> - Alexia Sheinman, MFA Interior Design</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/56812993/hsa-parsons HSA+PARSONS alliedstudio 2012-09-07T07:44:00-04:00 >2012-09-07T07:44:00-04:00 <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html>
