Th mixed used towers provide spaces for office use, residences as well as hotel space. The building's intercepting form is meant to break the horizontal surface of the existing skyline.

With water used as a the central element, the space is used as a tool to experience water with the senses and provides a sanctuary from the world outside. 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | urban bathhouse | New York, New York The Form 01 The form was inspired by an armature and a vessel, with the vessel contained in the armature's grasp. 02 The vessel is the void inteded for experiencing the water with one's senses. The armature with it's grasp, is intended for circulation within the building. 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | urban bathhouse | New York, New York meditation/ roof garden 03 One enters to the building by "submerging" one's body below ground. This is intended to dettach one's self from the outside world. It also symbolizes the ritual of baptism to cleanse onself before entering the space. bathing chamber reception 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | urban bathhouse | New York, New York Top Level Street Level Below Level 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | urban bathhouse | New York, New York 1 2 3 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | urban bathhouse | New York, New York 003 | Brooklyn, New York ferry terminal 003 | ferry terminal Red Hook, Brooklyn is a neighborhood that is experiencing isolation. Even though it is part of Brooklyn, the community is dettached from the mainland because of the lack of transportation and circulation in the vicinity The water taxi system is the only mode of transportation with close proximity to the area. The project goal is to design a ferry terminal that will serve as a gateway to the neighborhood and thus revitalize and create efficient traffic. 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | ferry terminal | Brooklyn, New York understanding the site Through a series of mapping exercises, we conducted a number of experiments in Red Hook and recorded the data digitally and by hand. Mapping transportation points of the site. Establishing nodes of movement and dispersement of traffic throughout the site. 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | ferry terminal | Brooklyn, New York BUS SUBWAY HIGHWAY FERRY Sun Path Studies Summer Solstice 10:00 Winter Solstice 12:00 14:00 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | ferry terminal | Brooklyn, New York A.

The building is designed to be open as to to allow efficient circulation and quick access to facilities. 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | ferry terminal | Brooklyn, New York Light Poles are mechanisms that can be altered depending on the seasonal solar movements. The configuration of the poles change to refract light within the building creating lighting moods. Because of it's aerodynamic potential, the poles can also be configured to harvest the wind and encourage air circulation within the structure. 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | ferry terminal | Brooklyn, New York Configuration 1 Configuration 2 Configuration 3 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | ferry terminal | Brooklyn, New York 004 | cultural complex Vancouver, British Columbia 004 | cultural complex The task for the project was to create a spatial experience that integrates the commercial and cultural aspects of the urban fabric. The space is intended to be used as a cultural center that comprises mix used facilities in a specific urban context. The selected site is located in the Canadian City of Vancouver. After hosting the 2010 Winter Games, and acknowledged as one of the most livable cities in the world, Vancouver has positioned itself as a true global city. The recent influx of immigrants from all over the world has also made Vancouver one of the world's cultural capitals. The addition of the Vancouver Cultural Complex will provide a space for the public to experience a didactic space in an ideal urban setting.

The stacking formation was determined by the similarities between programs and how interaction is generated within these spaces.

Under the regime of Bennito Mussolini, the municipal strucuture was designed as an ode to the Fascist ideology. It served as the headquarters of the Facist Administration and also served as the "set peice" for mass Fascist rallies. Originally conceptualized as a classical palazzo, it is a manifestation of the true International Style. 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | casa del fascio | Como, Italy Casa Del Fascio as seen on the Piazza Del Popolo Como, Italy facade Wanting to elevate themselves from the population, the Fascists used the facade of the Duomo as their inspiration for the exterior of the Casa Del Fascio. The balconies of the building exterior imitate the church's pedestals further validating the fascist's view of themselves as divine entities. 001 | 002 | 003 | 004 | 005 | 006 | casa del fascio | Como, Italy structure Both the Duomo and the Casa Del Fascio have a void in the center of the building mimicking a courtyard. It is practical for both structures to have a void for the purpose of ventilation and light access.
