Project 2 : Korean Police Station
This page will consist work of ideas that I have came up with for a building that will be an important component of the Korean city our class has been working on.
This photo is a district map that show the city our class has been working in. The yellow district is the district I am working in for this project.
The photo here is a zoning map that show what type of buildings will be in that certain zone. The dark blue is where most civic structure like police stations, libraries, schools, buildings for the community. I'll be working in the top left dark blue zone.
The Police Station
The police is very important in all cities. They enforce the law and keep the citizens of the city safe as well. It is important that police have a state of the art building that will help serve their purpose of justice and helping others.
The drawings on the left is very out left field and different. I got inspiration from the futuristic design of South Korea and other developed Asian countries. The drawing on the right is using aspects of traditional architecture from Korea before Japanese occupation like the hanoks.
The Hanok are homes used by Koreans in the Joseon Dynasty.
The Police Academy
The police academy is equally as important as a police station. The police academy is for new recruits to become part of the police force, but the police academy can also be be used as a training facility for the officer in the force to improve on their skills to become better officers. The veteran officers could also be instructors to academy as well , so the proximity of the station and the academy can be beneficial to both the officers and new recruits.
The academy offers has many classrooms a equipment facility, ranges , a gym for combat training. The outdoors could be used for K-9 training as well.
This idea is thinking about giant trucks that carry towed cars that have two levels. The purpose of the top level is that the plat form would to a ramp that the squad car can go off of and blast into action. For emergencies like a speedy rescue, high speed chase, and urgent escorts.
These other ideas like on the top right is like a gumball machine. They all have a mechanic shop on the side.
I had many criticism from the visitors that came for our designs. They offer great advice and helped me come to a decision for what I am going to do for the future of this project. The slope for my garage ramp needs to be adjusted so that the officers won't fall off a cliff and mangle themselves. They also said that if I used traditional aspects into my architecture is that I don't copy and paste it.
