 A New Friend for Yaroslavl

Purpose:   Create a site-specific icon for Yaroslavl with appropriate climatic conditions to engage visitors throughout the year.

Concept of the project:

The identity of a society is created through innumerable factors stemming from history, geography, and a shared culture. Our “parking space” in the Tchaikovsky boulevard isolates a common trait between these varied factors and personifies it to make it more relatable to many demographics with different interests.

Through our research into Yaroslavl’s sacred art and architecture, constructivism and vernacular craft, we were surprised to repeatedly encounter the motif of a circle, and more precisely, two vertically intersecting circles.

The beauty of this shape lies in its ubiquity that allows many public groups to associate it with their own experiences, memories, and everyday lives. Thus, we have an icon that manages to convey the local spirit without being overtly thematic.

In order to make visitors aware of the geometry with which they are subconsciously surrounded, we created a character that imbues a friendly gathering place in the park that would remind civilians of these many similarities. Functionally, the “friend” traps heat through solar radiation in order to create a warm spot for the town’s people during their time in the park. In the summer, the tree’s shade the pavilion to prevent it from overheating. The semi-transparent polycarbonate acts as a blanket around the structure, promoting a safe and whimsical environment.

Technical description:

The primary structure is made of bent laminated lumber that will be prefabricated off site to accommodate the pavilion’s curvature. Alternatively, this frame can be made out of many pieces of ordinary, straight pieces of lumber with mitered edges are joined together in a simplified curve. These pieces are reinforced with steel connection plates and angles.

The secondary structure consists of wood framing that provides rigidity for the circular structure. A portal on each of the long elevations is framed out with the same size members, providing a straight path through the structure.

Weather and vandal-proof polycarbonate panels are nailed onto this structure. Because of this semi-enclosed condition, the pavilion can become a shelter from rain while staying properly ventilated to prevent material decay. Heat is collected through solar radiation that keeps the pavilion warm throughout the year. Evenly spaced horizontal birch slats are nailed over this assembly in order to help shade the polycarbonate surface beneath, and to create relief and shadow on the otherwise flat elevation. As the pavilion ages, the wood gradually ages to mark the passage of time.

Sound Garden

Сад Звука — это проект, который рассматривает сад, как пространство, которое развивает право на свободу слова. Обычно в парках предоставляется возможность заниматься танцами, ораторским искусством, спортом. Сад Звука же позволит экспериментировать со звуком, с созданием звуковых пейзажей.

Концепция проекта: Размещенные в ландшафте раструбы транслируют звук. Звук как продукт жизни людей растворяется в окружающей природе. В проекте исследуется идея сада как тихого и мирного пейзажа. Мы ищем звуковой эквивалент бурной и цветастой растительности. Конические раструбы улавливают внешние звуки и, усиливая их, передают обратно в парк. Таким образом рождается новый способ общения: вы приезжайте в сад, чтобы поделиться своими мыслями с другими, приезжайте в сад, чтобы слушать!

Техническое описание: 20-24 оцинкованных стальных листов (4′x10 ‘) вырезать, сформировать в виде конусов и сварить вместе в открытой сферической конфигурации. Окрасить в белый цвет краской, стойкой к ржавчине. Количество конусов в одной структуре количество самих структур зависит от бюджета.

 

Purpose:   Sound Garden is a project which envisions the power of the garden as a space which amplifies our rights as citizens of the world to exchange words freely. Where the garden traditionally has offers individuals the opportunity to experiment with physical artistic gestures, this garden allows for one to experiment with audial gestures to create landscapes of changing sound. In this, Sound Garden is looking to renew the art of the garden by investigating a new medium of exposure combined with a new experience.

Concept of the project: A landscape of projected and funneled din, Sound Garden provides a new platform for human expression to be defused and infused into and through nature. Inverting the idea of garden as a quiet and peaceful landscape of multi-color fusions with a boisterous and loud energy housed amidst a symphony of white, the Garden’s undulating structure of conical units are mirrored by waves of voices and sounds that are amplified from inside to out and outside to in. The intention of this Garden is to not only create a space and place for people to come to enjoy and interact with, but to create a new tool for communication.

Come to the garden to share your thoughts with others. Come to the garden to listen.

Technical description:

20-24 galvanized steel sheets (4’x10’) cut, formed into a cone structure, and welded together into an open spherical configuration. To be painted white with rust resistant paint.

Cone seats to be added as budget allows for. Garden to grow larger as budget allows for.

Explanatory Note

Social Revolution 2013

Gabriella D’Angelo

In recent years, my work has examined the intertwining of public art and architecture, generating inhabitable structures and sculptures as tools for social, economic, and political justice. Investigating art and architecture not only as object but as an event to instigate a conversation within the public realm, breaking down the barrier of privatized space and museum boarders, my projects look to not only uncover new spaces and relationships with the body and its context, but question public art and architecture at their level of involvement with preserving our human rights. In this, I am interested in establishing site specific interactive platforms for human expression.
