Via Trinitatis is an ancient roman road cutting through the heart of the city’s historic center. The design challenge for this project was to rejuvinate this historic path as an ecological corridor and place a building for a university that would become an urban cataylst for future development in the area. The site is at one of the entrances to Via Trinitatis and thus focused on circulation from the level of the lungotevere down to street level. By encompassing the flow of traffic from this level change around and through the site a higher level of activity will be brought to the exhibit. My buildings primary programatic element would be the urban art gallery. By providing a space for this new form of art in a historic city the building would act as a catalyst not only to the surrounding area but for this genre of art as well. Along with this gallery administrative offices for the university and dormitories for students are also included in the upper floors.

The State College Community Gardens saught design help in order to make their facilities more useful to the local gardeners. Our project was intended to be a community seating and meeting area and to incorporate the existing picnic tables that the organization had. In order to limit the budget for the project the most was made of reclaimed materials from around campus. This included the use of bricks for our patio that came from a recently torn down university building. The team consisted of 15 students and 1 professor that worked around the clock to get this project from site analysis to constructed in a 10 week span.

The Timber in the City Competition is for an affordable housing complex in Red Hook, Brooklyn, a community strongly impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Designs for this competition called for timber as the primary structural member and for it to be a response to rising water levels and increased chances for severe flooding. Our project looks at the idea of portable housing modules that could be evacuated in the situation of an emergency. As this project develops the logistics and technicalities to make a project of this nature feasible is our focus for the rest of the semester. Scale: 1/8’ = 1’-0”
