ARCH 302B: Architectural Design III Gallery: Re-thinking the LA industrial vernacular and the long span tradition

Micro-Tectonics in Leimart Park Community Center

Micro-tectonics is the interpretation of small-scale structure systems originated from the study of my precedent, A+D Museum. I examined the long span building and proposed new tectonic systems that featured a micro truss, undulating concrete enclosures and porous roof membrane. Focused on the neighborhood of Leimert Park, the design considered site context, program, and environmental control systems to create a new local typology.
