Vanna3: Realised Architectural Project Chris Tucker Research Background: These houses embrace the complexity and contradiction inherit within the values, regulations and development controls regarding infill housing within heritage conservation areas. The street facing elevation deconstructs the significant and deeply layered Vanna Venturi House as a source for architectural critique. Research Contribution: The construction of two houses, both two storey, is effectively hidden behind a façade that is proportioned and sized on the façade of the 1966 Vanna Venturi house designed by Robert Venturi for his mother. This architectural critique on iconic importation is similar to the digitized stretching of the same façade undertaken by Ashton Raggart McDougall. The existing house on site was deconstructed firstly by making a surgical cut from front to back3, and then as a reinterpretation of stated heritage values the demolished framing timbers were retained to clad the façade of the new house. The interior space in contrast is a covered external space with carefully folded ceiling planes. The houses critique the modernist adage that ‘less is more’ and provides a contemporary interpretation of heritage planning codes beyond the retention of existing street facades. Research Significance This architectural research is significant because of its architectural interpretation of planning codes within heritage areas using one of the 20th centuries most iconic buildings. While the architectural manipulations of façade and icon are yet to be published, the design has been recognised by selection for display in the Australian Pavilion at the 2008 Venice Biennale, publication in the exhibition book ‘Abundant’, and subsequent ‘Abundant Highlights’ exhibition in Australia upon return.

There is a need for small houses in urban centres through out the world and within Australian cities this is also the case. This housing project is within the east coast city of Newcastle, where single people and single parents represent 70% of all people requiring affordable or public housing. The nearly urban housing project is part of an urban strategy to use available space within the inner city of Newcastle for small houses. The project proposes that a three metre wide space above a pedestrian footpath, on the north west and south west sides of a five storey car parking station, be used for the construction of 30 one and two bedroom houses. By clinging to the surface of the car parking station each house has a car parking space at their front door, while the operational aspects of the car parking station are without change. The addition of these houses brings more people in closer proximity to the public transport hub in Newcastle, and closer to the places where they are more likely to work. The consumption of spaces that make a limited contribution to the life of the street with the habitable spaces of housing activates the surrounding public space. The commercial potential of this residual space otherwise remains unrealised unless released by a buildings demolition or radical overhaul. Mapping these spaces within the city as a network of lost spaces shows that they can occupy a considerable volume. Close to public transport, shopping streets and places of work they should be desirable places for housing. In Tokyo for example, where modern houses occupy ever-smaller parcels of land, any available space appears to be continuously interrogated for possibilities. he value that this process places on spaces within the city reinforces the notion that; urbanity is not a static form at the end of a debate for more dense living. This is rarely the case in Australian cities. The existing landscape of urban buildings and urban spaces are thick with possibility. Already established as places where taller and more substantial buildings have been built, and as a space where people do live more closely with each other, the use of urban space should always be questioned for its potential as housing. This may also help conserve some of the workers cottages within the inner city that are being removed and replaced with more dense and larger apartments. The proposed nearly urban houses are linearly planned with service spaces running against the shared wall with the car parking station. At one end is an outdoor room that might become a study or garden in a one bedroom house. A two bedroom house has a bedroom on the other side of this outdoor room. The houses are cantilevered from the existing wall and structurally supported by the concrete frame of the car parking station.

While teaching the second year design program, actual design projects were preferred for design

problems; for the students this provides an insight into the problems that face a practicing

architect, while the community groups benefit by having their design problem creatively

explored.

Teaching design in the final year of the Master of Architecture program prepares students for the professional practice of architecture with an emphasis on self-directed research and learning. The elective design project allows students to research architectural issues and situations in response to the roles that architects are undertaking in natural and urban environments. Critical to this is an understanding of the history and theory of architecture and its relationship to the physical, social, cultural and financial environment.

2006Tucker CC, Conversion of existing architecture for living in the city, Schinkenchiku-Sha Pty Ltd, Japan (2006) [H1]

Exhibited in: 41st Central Glass International Architectural Design Competition, Tokyo. Background In architecture, a particular problem in urban design involves the way in which, as cities develop, usable spaces are sometimes left behind. Mapping these spaces within the city shows that they occupy a considerable volume; but, unless released by a building’s demolition, the commercial and social potential of these spaces is often unrealised. This research sets out to test, using a case study site, whether such residual spaces are appropriate for affordable housing. Contribution This research investigates the potential of providing affordable housing in a three-metre wide space on the outside of a car parking station. The project tests the feasibility of this typical urban space scenario for accommodating small apartments; each clad in reused sections of old houses. The use of these parts of old houses revalues the social knowledge embedded within their shape and texture. The concept for this research was originally developed as part of the Tracings (NSW State Library 2005) and Residue (RMIT, 2007) works by Ostwald, Tucker and Chapman. This research examined aspects of forgotten space, proposing innovative solutions to particular design challenges. The research concept was developed by Tucker and Ostwald for critical review before being refined and submitted to the Central Glass International Architectural Design Competition and then expanded for publication. Significance The research was awarded first place in the 41st Central Glass International Architectural Competition. The chief juror was Pritzker prize winning architect Toyo Ito. This competition received 423 entries and it was the first time an Australian design had ever been awarded it. The design was exhibited in Tokyo and published in the ARC supported volume “ReHousing” edited by Murray, Ramirez-Lovering and Whibley.

2008Tucker CC, There's Always More, Australian Institute of Architects, Barton, ACT (2008) [J2]

The Vanna Venturi house became the departure point for a new house in a heritage conservation area. By slicing and turning parts of the façade, the new form neatly fitted both the site and shape of neighbouring houses. The street facing facade was heavily textured when clad with the framing timbers of demolished houses, a minimalist commentary on the usefulness of lost buildings. However in this model the façade asks ‘what do you want from me’, searching passers by for ideas and values that might be worth using. Why design flatness or tradition when life is so much richer….there’s always more. The significance of this work is through its selection in the Australian pavilion at the 2008 Venice Architectural Biennale, the most significant exhibition in world architecture. This work was also the subject of the 2010 PVC Creative Works Award

2007Ostwald M, Tucker CC, Chapman MJ, Residue: Architecture as a Condition of Loss, RMIT University Press, Melbourne, Victoria, 285 (2007) [A1]

The book investigates ten historical moments in Newcastle and provides an architectural conceptualisation of those moments. My role was significant in the architectural conceptualisation, design and preparation of 'line drawings'; for the finished drawings and models that I played a minor role in. Some images in the book are entirely prepared by myself but Michael Chapman is responsible for most. Apart from conceptualising many of the projects I had little involvement with the essays. The book is significant because; of its application of historical moments in the creation of architecture and the fine drawings and models that were created. Some of the works published in Residue were also exhibited at; Tracings: Lovett Gallery, Newcastle Region Library Tracings: State Library of NSW
