These cubes illuminate and enlighten neighborhoods with an in-depth look into UNIQLO’s unique product quality. The pop-up stores showcase UNIQLO by forming simple volumes with high-tech surfaces cladding their gridded surface. Once the cube is plopped into location, a section of the form slides open like a vault, inviting people to come visit, try on clothes, and purchase the treasures that lay inside. At night all cubes glow in the dark and mark their presence. UNIQLO’s brand presence emerges from the powerful simplicity of the form, to the glowing facades, all the way down to the details; unfolding the highest material and manufacturing quality. Only six weeks from conception to installation, these cubes changed HWKN’s and my understanding of how to design an installation. Bringing in the fabricator immediately after concept, we worked together to arrive at a project which aligned with our design intensions, while agreeing with their construction methods and keeping the project on time and within the budget. Every subsequent pop-up project in the office was rooted in this strategy and became progressively more fast paced.

Back lit pegboard walls allow for the most flexible displays which constantly shift with each season’s designs in this small fashion store. As with many Z-A projects, repetition and the beauty of the mundane are explored through the excessive use of peg board hooks, creating an almost furry surface condition. The resulting space is simple and common, and yet unlike any other boutique anyone has been in previously. Yellow cuts and insertions add life and dynamism to the otherwise pristine space and create an uneasy blend between old and new, modern and traditional. The extremely low budget and open minded client allowed us to play with these unusual combinations. Stark white reduces the ability to read depth in the space and the yellow reads almost flat from a distance, pulling the eye to the dark, contracting products. Working in Israel meant that construction documents where minimal to nonexistent. Instead the Guy Zucker worked directly with the contractor and client on site to detail the project and find and alter the locally sourced furniture pieces.

Built for the Summer Warm-Up at MoMA PS1, Wendy was an unapologetic approach to ecology. Instead, Wendy pro-actively cleaned the air with a photo catalytic titania spray. She had pools, waterfalls, misters, foggers, and a water cannon. Mixed in were also lights and a DJ booth. She startled a 16’ concrete wall and was nearly 100% returnable when finished due to her off-the-shelf structure, foundations, fans, and pumps. Wendy’s spiky arms reach out with micro-programs like blasts of cool air, music, water cannons and mists to create social zones throughout the courtyard. Once the competition was won, I was charged with realizing the project. While the concept was amazing, it was far from resolved and underwent significant changes as I worked with the engineers to resolved a system in which all cross bracing was hidden within the star, found and worked with consultants and contributors, helped fund-raise and find donors, managed the many disparate demands of MoMA, and found or invented ways to build completely atypical devises (like a water cannon). I ran the site, splitting time between coordination of the contractor, managing required volunteer labor, and actively constructing much of the project myself.

Built for Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, Wendy Abroad presented the somewhat unique chance build a project a second time. Using all of the acquired knowledge from Wendy PS1, we could build it better, faster, and off-thegrid. As was always the intension, a local scaffolding system was used, local fans, local lights, local pools, etc; and the fabric and Titania coating from Wendy PS1 were reused, eliminating waste. Damaging the pavers was forbidden, so we reimagined the structure, this time without foundations. Trickier than it sounds in a place prone to sandstorms and on a structure which was to host high ranking members of the Sheik’s family including the Sheikha. Of course, the challenges of working abroad, particularly within culture of the United Arab Emirates, made this an interesting and exciting project to realize. I personally moved to Abu Dhabi for two months and was the sole representative of Hollwich Kushner during that period. Working with local contractors and fabricators, we were able to make Wendy live again and even improve upon the concepts. The partners arrived in UAE for the first time only after completion and four days after I left the country.

MAX represents a new way to live in the city. The building is a community incubator, packed with public spaces to work, hang out and network. The 56 apartments are small, 250 square feet each, but utility doesn’t mean compromise. These efficient machines for living are arranged around a vertical public core, topped by a “hat” of communal rooftop amenity space, giving Max its unique disposition. Max wants you to make friends, have a drink, socialize, and expand beyond your four walls. MAX is designed to be a community asset. It is careful not to turn its back to its surrounding neighbors, but to instead turns a warm eye to the public space around it. Maximized glazing makes it inviting, and its green hat makes it a beacon of curiosity and potential about a new way to live in the city. MAX’s massing is made up of three major pieces. A basement lobby connects to a ground floor open retail level with 15’-0” ceiling heights. Above that is an elegant 9-story residential component clad in black brick with aluminum window mullions. The assemblage is topped with a planted hat that screens mechanical space and houses community amenities.

The existing building combines a private collection and museum with one of the few schools for curatorial studies in the country. Tasked with helping the director to reinvent the school-museum dynamic, and consider the future of the museum collection more generally, we underwent an extensive research and exploration phase on the design. The goal to be finding a design and programmatic concept which was progressive enough for a school but not overly irreverent to the museum. A central mixing chamber allows all program to interact: museum, faculty office, classroom, archive, and library. A new visible collection allows students more ready access to the current collection and the archive simultaneously. A new entrance to the main galleries allows for a more flexible division the spaces and eliminates the need to shut down the entire museum at each change over. Updated cafe, offices, and library increase comfort and functionality in the building. Finally, a new flexible event space above the building gives a playful identity upgrade without disturbing the existing. With incredible views to the Hudson River, the space can be used for a diverse range of theater productions, movie showings, speakers, and rented events, generating income and attention.

CMYplay is a playground for children and adults alike packed into the thickness of The Cooper Union’s New Academic Building. Composed entirely out of three interweaving networks at a density befitting Manhattan, this tangle of tubes is rooted in the spirit of homo ludens, emphasizing the importance of play in a city which sometimes takes itself a little too seriously. The New Academic Building thickens the façade to create a semi-sheltered zone of interaction. CMYplay capitalizes on that extra depth, filling it with activity and bringing life to an traditionally purely functional space. The translucent, brightly colored tubes seem to grow around the existing exposed columns entrance, engulfing them. Colored light filters through while silhouettes race within. Three simple, modules combine to create a grid-work of three-dimensional movement, forming traditional playground staples like slides and ladders, slipping out to become benches, and thinning within to allow for pockets of gathering and relief. At the end of the installation, tubes will be distributed to local schools and parks, allowing for virtually no waste and continuing the concepts of fun, movement, and activity for the foreseeable future.

Working with an extremely limited budget, this project began with a material selection. The space then grew out of play with that material. Moreover, given the constraints of the exhibition, the entire space had to be delivered, assembled, and finished in just two days, ultimately my task became to do every aspect of the project, from design to marketing, coordinating manufacturers to physically assembling the space. The paper tubes became a way to not only house and protect the air, but also light the objects, sculpt the circulation, and create places of gathering. Different caps were developed for each piece, depending on its size, shape and protection needs. Finally, the simple addition of well articulated reflective tape emphasizes the boundaries while grounding the tubes.

While the ideas of third-dimension waste space began in the previous studio project, they were flushed out in this new construction in an existing space. Using clever programmatic stacking we were able to fit two stories of program into 13’ of space height. The bed platform serves as the roof of the shower. Shortened 5’ cabinets provide support for the “up stairs” walkway. Meanwhile, full height spaces provide an oversized walk-in closet and a unique bathing experience. The clients desire to keep the majority of the floor space open for parties while creating some level of privacy for the bedroom is evident. Moreover, all detailing is intended to emphasis the separate nature of the structure, holding it off from the existing building. v

The Pines Pavilion, destroyed in 2011 by a devastating fire, was recently completed, once again giving the Pines community a central hub for culture and nightlife. The building’s form is sheared towards the harbor to visually welcome the over 800,000 visitors who arrive via ferry to Fire Island Pines every summer. The first floor offers a Welcome Bar to serve as a meeting place for all residents and visitors. The dance club encompasses the building’s second level, with a 2,400 square-foot dance floor and a 2,600 square-foot outdoor terrace which will host High Tea in the evenings, and double as an additional lounge at night. The Welcome Bar, the High Tea deck, and the Pavilion club space are all connected by an internal loop of stairs. Inside the club, stadium steps cascade out from one wall, creating an elevated view of the dance floor, with a skylight overhead providing a constant view of the starry night skies. Hyper fast paced and low budget, the project has many stripped down details, accepting and building on conventional construction systems. Because of the pace, CA became a critical part of the process, continuing to design and resolve details throughout construction.

A Cinemtic Landscape takes the stepping necessary in any theater space, extends that logic throughout the rest of the building and site, then sculpts it to create fluid and continuous space without the conventional distinctions between spaces of vertical circulation and those of the occupiable flat floor plates. This project borrows ideas of landscape, namely that of the meander, allowing for indeterminate movement and use, while questioning the assumption that landscapes are inherently flat and confined to the realm of surface. By repeatedly folding that surface on itself, we arrive on a much more complex and interesting environment of sectional relationships while creating a level of density appropriate to the urban context. More akin to a public park than a private theater, lingering is allowed and encouraged, and the environment is as much about seeing, being seen, and interacting as it is about viewing film. Collections of diverse, overlapping circulatory spaces have intentionally been left undefined, allowing occupants to sit and lounge, discuss, or move as desired. While more traditional theaters exist in the building, most reject the assumption that the goal of a theater is to create a contained and controlled environment.

Goals for the project continually shifted as new potential tenants and developer partners came and went, creating a fluid design which nonetheless required a constant rigor to meet the extremely tight budget.

z_Grid first a foremost assumes that the city is too valuable - in building stock investment, history, symbology, and trade relations - to be abandoned outright. The city will remain, invigorated or decimated. The necessary changes cannot be top-down, but they can be shaped by policy. Buildings must remain individual, privately-owned, and disparate and, in typical New York fashion, will be retrofit rather than rebuilt. At its most fundamental level, z_Grid consists of a collection of building scale bridges, linking the towers of the city and adding a third dimension to the grid, increasing stability, democracy and unity with in the city. The skyscraper is already an illogical typology, essentially a half mile long cantilever, but when the city is over-run with water, this illogic type becomes impossible. Such isolated structures cannot resist the hydrostatic loads of the ocean currents, they must be reinforced. Relatively few entities own the bulk of the building stock in the city, thus linking towers to each other is both a viable and more cost effective means of reinforcing the buildings. The resultant a decentralized, rhibsome-like structure that is far more stable, but could be sculpted to create other benefits as well.
