• THIRD YEAR ARCHITECTURE PORTFOLIO TANNER RICE

• Mobius Object

• This prject was created using 123d design and 123d make. Beginning as a flat polygon and evolving into a twisting, three dimensional arch.After creating the object digitally with 123d design, you then send your design to 123d make where it will be flatenned out and printed so you can bring it to life.

This project teaches you more about 3D modeling and helps you understand that the bridge between waht you can design digitally, and can construct in real life, is very small. Everything is possible, you just have to figure out how to get what you want.

• Creative Fabrications

• Exploration of generative design strategies using formZ.

This project allowed for me to further my research into 3D mod-eling and explore the limits of formZ.

• Motion 1

• Mathematics, physics, and optics.... These three catego-ries combine to give us a bit of history regarding our new president. Dr. Gregory Crawford earned a bachelors degree in mathematics and physics, a masters degree in physics, and a doctorate degree in chemical physics. My goal in this centerpiece was to symbolize a piece of his past relating to his education during his college expe-rience. Mathematical yet organic, these abstract forms invite the viewer to partake of the geometric aesthetic.

• Manipulation of nurb surfaces

• Prototyping this project allowed me to get a feel for how the plexi glass would actually fit together, as well as, how much it would be able to bend/stretch in order to fit into place.

I failed more than once on this project when making my final models because I kept braking the pieces as I was not careful enough. To help me deal with this problem I started making the thickness, of my object in 123d make, a lot bigger and this made the pieces more durable.

• Motion 2

• An artifact that is beautiful, serves at least two purposes (as a bespoke centerpiece for inauguration, and as symbol for inclu-sion).

• EVOLO Competition

• Dubai, anticipated completion 2013518 m/ 1693 ft/ 122 floorsDeveloper: Trident International HoldingsArchitect: AedasStructural Engineer: Hyder ConsultingG.F.A: 1.6 million sq ftElevators: 23Units: 172

PENTOMINUM

• The Pentominium would be the tallest all-residential building in the world upon completion if construction resumes; it has the highest projected height of any res-idential building under construction. It has been described as one of the most architecturally significant projects in the city currently under construction due to the large number of offset cantilevered spa gardens and apartments down one side [which create] an imbalance for the build-ing and, as a result, some fairly signifi-cant building sways which have to be cor-rected during construction

The word pentominium is a portmanteau of the word penthouse and condomini-um. Each residential floor will have just one 4-bedroom apartment of over 600 m2 (6,500 sq ft). Amenities available to residents would include a swimming pool, an observation deck, a private cinema, a health club and a banqueting hall, along with a cigar lounge and a business centre.

• Quick Response Nomadic Tower

Our tower will be a quick response solution for political refugees as well as natural disaster survi-vors. The tower will serve as a temporary floating city capable of sailing around the world and docking wherever necessary. The floating island will be equipped with oversized helicopters to help transport inhabitants off and on the island in a timely manner. The island will be equipped with photovolta-ic panels, food waste system, solar cell tarps, and an entire water desalination plant underneath the island to provide clean water for inhabitants. The island itself will have ports for the large heli-copters, vast greenscape for vegetation, and walkways to the skyscraper. Our skyscraper is formed out of the landscape, giving it an organic feel. The first three floors are completely public space for a hospital, school, and countless markets for inhabitants to purchase/sell products. The majority of the building is dedicated to flexible, temporary housing for both individuals and large families.

Example Scenarios:

Natural- EcuadorM7.8 earthquake on April 16, 2016.The earthquake occurred as the result of shallow thrust faulting on or near the plate boundary between the Nazca and Pacific plates. In Quito, the capital, 105 miles away from the epicenter, the quake was felt for about 40 seconds. People fled buildings and into the streets as the quake knocked out electricity and cell phone coverage. At the same time, a tower at an air-port in the coastal city toppled over. Closer to the epicenter, streets were cracking, bridges fall-ing down, and multi-story buildings collapsed. The earthquake lasted for only a few minutes, but dev-astation was felt long after the quake shook the ground. 643 people died, and over 2,500 individuals were injured and needed hospital care. 130 people are missing, 25,376 people were left homeless, 4,430 buildings were destroyed, and 2,740 buildings are damages (281 of these being schools)
