建筑师提供的项目信息。盒子中的机器

在为底特律美国日产设计中心创建了一个新设计设施并完成拉霍亚一个工作室的改造后,LUCE工作室现在又完成了他们的第三个委托任务。虽然这座建筑只有5000平方英尺,规模相对前两个项目较小,但它同样令人印象深刻,不但达到了最高的设计标准,还将成本控制在客户的预期之内。LUCE工作室在与美国日产设计中心及其建模小组合作的过程中,亲眼观察到了非常先进的5轴铣床的操作。LUCE工作室和日产共同讨论了为容纳铣床建造一座建筑的简单方法,这种方法与工作室其他的设计功能截然不同。其中一个要求是,这座建筑应该显示出其内部所包含的技术。

容纳机器的盒子

机器在忙于从黏土中雕刻出形状时具有一种拟人化的特质。它需要24小时不间断地塑造出全尺寸的车辆。容纳它的建筑应该非常简单,只作为这个惊人过程的一个背景。为机器建造一座房子的预算非常少。目标很大,时间却很短。建筑师决定,建筑采用预制的工业构件,而覆盖材料则要虚无缥缈、富有表现力,而且是定制的(与汽车的底盘和车身类似)。机器可否制造自己的“皮肤”?最终的材料就是这样快速选择出来的。

通过封面来阅读一本书

进入这座新建筑中的汽车设计师知道,他们的构想将会在这里开花结果。这个盒子是一个创意元素,提醒着人们其中正在进行着各种创新。艺术家唐纳德•贾德提升了盒子的设计,让它的形状更加实用,而且体现了全球文化。他认为盒子是最复杂的物体,有多种渲染方式……“毕竟,它们有八个角!”日产的这个简单项目是对此巧妙表达的一个实例,它节省时间和成本,非常实用,又对每天身处其中的人充满吸引力。

From the architect. MACHINE IN A BOX

After having created a new design facility for Nissan Design America in Detroit + a revamp of the La Jolla based studio, LUCE et Studio has now completed their third commission. Though relatively small compared with the others, this 5,000 sq. ft building has produced an equally impressive result meeting the highest design and cost conscious standards of the client.  In the process of collaborating with Nissan Design America & their model realization group, LUCE observed firsthand the operation of the highly advanced 5 axis milling machine. Together LUCE and Nissan discussed a simple approach for creating a building to house the mill; independent of the other design functions at the studio. A mandate; the building ought to hint to the technology within.

 BOX for a MACHINE

The machine has anthropomorphic qualities as it busily works to carve form out of clay. It takes upwards of 24 hours to sculpt a full size vehicle. The building should be simple; a backdrop to this amazing process. The budget for making a house for a machine was small. The goals were lofty. The timeline was short. We determined that it would be a relevant exercise to make the building of pre-fabricated industrial elements , while the shroud could be something ethereal, expressive and customized (not so different from the chassis|body of a car). Could the machine fabricate its own ‘skin’. This is how chose to proceed….quickly.

 READ A BOOK BY ITS COVER

Automotive designers approach this new building on campus knowing that their ideas will be brought to fruition within a BOX standing as a creative reminder of the innovative possibilities housed within. Artist Donald Judd, who elevated the utilitarian shape of a box to global cultural prominence, believed that in fact, boxes can be some of the most complicated objects to render….”after all, they have 8 corners!” In this case, the result of a simple exercise at Nissan is an example of an artful expression; cost effective, time efficient, extremely functional and yet alluring to those who live with it daily.
