C olumella | nigua | Cultural Development Historic District

Located in the historic district of San Gregorio Nigua, a point within the Dominican Republic with great potential just 20 km from the city. The first sugar mills and plantations of the colonial era were first settled in Nigua, known as the principal source of income of the country. About 14 monuments from the Dominican Republic are on the tentative list of the World Heritage by unesco, two of these are in Nigua. These points of interest form a natural path that integrates the whole project. The vertebral column (concept) serves as a distributor shaft and support for several areas of the body. With this same idea we designed one main street that also serves as the central access that connects all areas of the project. The same as the vertebral column the project is divided in four parts: the trail, marina, cultural and educational areas. The name of the project is "columella" which means column in latin. 12

This site was selected because of its unique qualities. For example a already proposed parking lot, two main streets, the intersection of two canals and a park surrounding the area. The main intention is to integrate the project with these existent activities.

long WA LL | new haven | furniture “Long Wharf Park� here resided the longest wharf in the country that reached a length of 3/4th of a mile.

Wharf, or quay is a structure on the shore of a harbour where ships may dock to load and unload cargo or passengers.

The site is a strip (linear, long) piece of land surrounded by roads (I-95) and the waterfront, creating a dynamic interaction between the two elements of the movement of water and velocity that define the site. In the middle of these two elements resides the park in perfect harmony, abandoned but in the urge of recovery. the perfect place to create a piece of art that will attract the masses bringing the community together.

SPHERES imitate the position and the state of the human body when in contact with water. Each sphere has a different function and program. The functions of each sphere are divided in two, the top with the programs where visitors are allowed to explore the different funtions of water and the lower part of the spheres the research facility. Every sphere has acrylic flooring allowing the water process to be an educational tool. The research facility is a combination of the desalination (potable water) and osmosis (renewable energy) process. Currently both systems have similar processes using fresh water and salt water. The osmosis process is a lot like desalination but in reverse, in desalination you are separating fresh water from salt water and in osmotic power you are combining fresh water with salt water. 26

design philosophy

The design philosophy is based on a series of conceptual approaches that entails a process of a specific design. Having careful awareness of the details and elements that affect the development and use of a building. The responsibility for the surrounding and the culture that envelopes the design. The careful connection to nature (sky, water, greenery) through a courtyard, an interior garden, a roof. The detailing of a space that has meaning and purpose for the tenants of the building and how the quality of a space can change the perception of a city or town. The philosophy entails the awareness of the environment where the building is designed getting an understanding of the history and the importance of the community; creating a relationship with the site and the building. Getting a grasp of what the future awaits for that particular place, making a meaningful connection with the past and the future. Sometimes the local artists (paintings, sculptures, fashion) already have these answers and have determined these hidden mysteries. How to incorporate the building with what already exists is the challenge, to make it a livable place to be or exist. It is also important to have a connection or interruption in the building itself that connects the building with a recreational space for personal use and the community. These spaces contain a sculptural element (such as an art piece, canopy design, landscape design, etc.) that relates to the concept of the project. When the formal aspect of a building is determined, the design becomes a pattern, the little bits and pieces that completes the project (the skin, roof, floor, materials, landscape). The building becomes a symbolic element that details a glimpse of the importance of the culture of the place, designing a building that belongs and tells a story.
