DIGITAL PROJECT BICYCLE PARKING RACK NEXT TO PTERODACTYL STRUCTURE

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTURE 2013

THE BASIC GEOMETRY OF THIS DESIGN DERIVES FROM A BUILDING LOCATED
AT THE PROJECT’S SITE. IT IS A BICYCLE RACK. IT IS LOCATED ADJACENT
TO PTERODACTYL PARKING STRUCTURE, A BUILDING DESIGNED BY ARCHITECT
ERIC OWEN MOSS. THE BICYCLE RACK’S STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS ARE CONCEIVED
FOLLOWING THE STRUCTURAL PRINCIPALS OF THE ADJACENT BUILDING.
THE BICYCLE RACK STRUCTURE HAS DEFINED PARAMETERS DICTATING ITS FORM.
A VARIETY OF STRUCTURAL CONFIGURATIONS TURNS IT INTO A COMPLEX
GEOMETRY.
THE FIRST AND THE LAST FRAMES ARE TRANSFORMED SIGNIFICANTLY IN ORDER
TO CREATE STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS FOR SHADING ABOVE (AWNING SYSTEM)
AND A PENALIZATION SYSTEM WITH TRIANGULAR ELEMENTS COVERING IT.
