impact on your design proposal
In the previous modules, the studio has provided an opportunity to investigate several parameters that will shape your design: educational facility typologies and your main design strategy extracted out of a case study. This module will focus on another input that will inform your proposal: the site.This semester the site is located on the east side San Francisco, between a residential area and old industrial area. The immediate context makes the site very dynamic for the Studio.Location: https://goo.gl/maps/gj19VMaykum-Eastern Side: Esprit park is on the other side of the street.-Southern Side: 20th street is an overpass descending down & reaches grade at Minnesota St, A new condo building is south of the overpass-Western Side: a retaining wall with the I-280 freeway (approx. 8 meters high) and the Potrero hill neighborhood ascends to the west with an interesting retaining system.Please, note that we will assume the metal warehouse located in the north part of the site does NOT exist for this studio.By the end of this module, you are expected to have an understanding of the complexities of the site and how to maximize the potential of this location.Please note that you will continue to refine and improve the work produced in previous assignments in every module until the final review and you are expected to present your progress on a module-by-module basis!
Your site should have an impact on your design proposal. In order to start understanding the site’s complexities, uncertainties, and possibilities, you will present an in-depth analysis of your chosen site, including, but not limited to: the vegetation, street hierarchy, density, sunlight and shadows, land use, demographics, topography, etc.This week’s assignment will be comprised of the following parts:1 Site Analysis
