Disney animation center Extension Instructor : Jenny Wu Fall 2017

The project focusses on merging two seemingly opposite qualities, the figural with a normative bar geometry. The project was begun by selecting parts with opposing qualities like the generic bar, the cross, the curved bar, and a set of cylindrical volumes. The generic bar building was placed along the length of Buena Vista St, and we placed a figural building at the northern corner that works as a pivot point between two main thoroughfares from the existing campus. From the exterior, this intersection reads like a collision of these disparate geometries. However, in the interior, the intersection becomes a much more calibrated merging of different spatial qualities, programs, and structure. Urbanistically, the eccentric intersection also cracks the bar on the ground level creating the main pedestrian entry to the campus and a pathway into the courtyard through which people could navigate to the rest of the campus. “Good design is something that can survive the test of time” - Jenny Wu

*This project was done in a group of three. My responsibility included active involvement of the concept development, production of section, Elevation, Site and axon drawings, Building the 3/32” Section model.

Duplex House

Instructor : David Eskenazi Spring 2017

The project focusses on an idea to take a shape and rotate it from plan to section as a separate piece. And the project speculates on how the curve intersects the normative box in plan and section. It consists of a five sided polygon which is being intersected by an eccentric curve. This piece is then rotated in three different orientation spatially and placed next to each other with a slight touch. From the exterior there’ll be an ambiguity between it being read as a single house or multiple spaces are being shared.

“Good designers know when to stop” - David Eskenazi

Hyde park Library

Instructor : Hsinming Fung Fall 2016

The project focusses on the study of the interrelationship of geometry, form, tectonics, and materiality. The form focusses on the relationship between two non similar geometries. The intersection of a parallel and oblique geometry creates an ambiguity in its readings. Through generative drawing, iterative material studies, generative modeling, descriptive drawing and analytical mapping and diagramming, an intellectual framework as well as productive techniques was developed for the development of spatial organizations, architectural forms.

Visual Studies III

Instructor : Devyn Weiser Fall 2017

The course provided an introduction to advanced techniques in modeling and fabrication processes by focusing od digital drawing and production tools that enable the representation of complex and dynamic surfaces, procedural and parametric forms, and the development of the relationship between architecture and geometry. In the second half of the course, using the quasirobotic camera booth in SCI-ARc Robot house, different parts from the studio was animated in space and time to create new figures for digital capturing and compositing in Photoshop and After Effects.

“There’s always an interesting relationship between the digital and the real ” - Devyn Weiser

Visual Studies II

Instructor : Matthew Au, Anna Neimark Fall 2017

Figuration and Legibility. A letter was chosen from the Romain du Roi font designed for King Louis XLV. With this letter a series of manipulations ( Folds and Curls ) were carried out to produce a three dimensional form. For the second half of the semester, the group project was to create a scaled model of our grid manipulations.

“Models are objects we project onto the world � - Anna Neimark

*This project was done in a group of four. My responsibility included active involvement of the concept development, producing drawimgs for CNC milling and assembly of the model.

Materials & Tectonics Project : The Crystal Palace Instructor : Pavel Getov Fall 2017

The goal of this project was to redesign an iconic structure using our knowledge of tectonics. The intervention of this project was to reinvent the crystal palace using new materials and tectonic assemblies, while maintaining the recognizable formal qualities of the original building. The intervention proposes to maintain the qualities of showcase and spectacle of the crystal palace by transforming it into a travelling pavilion such that beautiful formal qualities of the palace can be experienced by a broader audience. The focus was on the modules of the original design as a way of understanding the underlying composition of the Palace. By replacing the heavy cast iron and plate glass of the original Palace with lightweight and inexpensive aluminum and ETFE, and developing a new modular and collapsable tectonic system, the traveling pavilion becomes a delicate, crystalline installation.

“Architecture is not a sprint. It’s a Marathon � - Pavel Getov

*This project was done in a group of three. My responsibility included active involvement of the concept development, developed the concept of collapsibe tectonics, various degrees of openness and the testing model.

Ziara 1st of its kind healing center in India

The concept of Ziara was to have “ Life “ as the most predominant focus, and all the other essential elements and services available would be caterred for in order to enhance the core focus of “ Life “ and have a better living experience. The idea was to create a retreat center which emphasizes the concept of “ Oneness “. The client brief required us to create a one stop space, where people could experience the true essence and emotions of a human being. From physical fitness to psychological peace and tranquility, Ziara has various activities ranging from gymnasium, archery, Zumba, yoga, Tantric therapies, spa and much more.

Horizon ...Corporate space

The entire concept of Horizon revolves around the logo of “ Reuse, Reduce, Recylce” in order to emphasize its contribution to the sustainability and green environment. It seeks to create a space for professional minds to fuse together and work towards an aim, shaping the brand and directly or indirectly shaping the world. The building tries to always have a conversation with the surroundings and tries to create an impact in people’s minds.

Take-Off ( National level winner - Best Interior design 2015 - Commercial category )

It’s a lifestyle studio offering various courses and distinctive therapies for an exclusive and holistic approach towards better living. The client’s requirement was to transform the space and create an outdoor environment within. The objective was to make the clients and customers, experience peace and tranquility the moment they step into the space.
