MoCA Pavilion in Los Angeles by Tom Wiscombe Design

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source: Tom Wiscombe Design

This inhabitable pavilion is a study of surface-to-volume transformations, where mass is achieved by pushing into a surface like a fist through a rubber sheet. In this case, chunky objects are pushed into exterior skins, creating volumetric effects on the interior. The perimeter edges of the three components of the piece are razor-thin, creating visual tension between the realms of 2D/flat and 3D/massive.

United Therapeutics, a pharmaceutical company in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park, needed a 5136-square-foot field house for an Olympic-sized soccer field built for employees and their families. The structure needed to provide changing areas, showers, and restrooms for two teams of 10 to 12 people, as well as a gathering area with a fireplace. The structure also had to accommodate necessary support spaces—maintenance/storage room, mechanical/electrical rooms—and each changing room needed a janitor’s closet.

SEATTLE – Construction of the new $6.6 million Wagner Education Center at The Center for Wooden Boats (CWB) is scheduled to begin this winter. Designed by award-winning Seattle architect Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects, the building harkens back to historic Northwest boatbuilding facilities while at the same time serves as a modern front door for the growing museum, Lake Union Park and the surrounding South Lake Union neighborhood. Kundig’s interest in creating shape-shifting structures will be evident in the Wagner Education Center, where large windows flank interior spaces and movable exterior panels shift up or down to allow for the control of natural light and open or close the building.
