entropy Project Video Project: “The Architecture of Entropy”

Time Spring 2008

Instructor Professor Lawrence J. Hamlin

Concept The project prompt for this video was to explore Architecture as it relates to time. I found a starting point from Robert Smithson’s essay “Entropy and the New Monuments” where Smithson applied the concept of entropy to inhabitable spaces. To him “entropic space” and “the entropic mood” can be described as “banal,” empty,” “bland,” “blank,” and “infintesimal.” It’s within “the slurbs, urban sprawl, and the infinite number of housing developments of the postwar boom” that he sees these spaces take shape. This video seeks to reflect the experience of the entropic mood as Smithson describes it. In the video a commercially produced particle board dresser falls to pieces in two locations, seeming to occupy each simultaneously. Meanwhile images of locations that match Smithson’s description of entropic space are intertwined. Entropy does not then appear as wild chaos but instead the slow homogenization of space over time.

The Ecole Nationale SupÊrieure d’Architecture de Versailles (ENSA-V) hosted an intensive course on sustainable design to take place between French and American students. The task was to design a two person housing unit in suburban Versailles that could be self sustaining and completely disconnected from the grid.

boutique hotel Project Boutique Hotel

Lake Michigan

Time Fall 2009

Instructor Professor Ralph Hammann

Concept The assignment for this studio was to design a luxury hotel with a concrete structure. The site was located just a block off Lake Michigan in Chicago’s North side. Given the program of a boutique hotel I wanted to design a building that would offer a unique experience specific to the city of Chicago. To do this I took a historicist bent and chose to explore an aesthetic based in Chicago’s early 20th century Architecture.

Green Line Extension Project T Operators’ Facility Project Design of facilities for train operators and yard staff as part of the greater Green Line Extension Project for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.(MBTA)

Time Winter 2013

Company AECOM

Project Architect Elton Elperin

Concept AECOM inherited a detailed program and diagrammatic floor plan from the MBTA and was tasked with re-evaluating the layout and providing a full design for the building. The “Transportation Building” is a point of departure and return for train operators along Boston’s Green Line. The building also provides office space for management staff. I was responsible for all presentation work, 3D modeling, and much of the construction documentation.

Process

Section Sketches

1) The first step was to analyze the inherited programmatic massing and determine how we could alter it. We consolidated the building’s mechanical area into a penthouse above the stair core to simplify the massing. 2) The second step we took was to slide the program on either side of the axis defined by the corridor and create a recessed entrance at the end of the building. 3) Final mass after shifting spaces.

JFK Terminal 1 Project Copetiton entry for the expansion of Terminal 1 at JFK International Airport.

Time Winter 2013

Company AECOM

Project Architect Tim VonAschwege

Architectural Team Kayla Wengler Andrew Wilke Adebowale Adeniyi Hanna Jin

Concept Our task was to develop a design to expand Terminal 1 at John F. Kennedy International Airport that would respond to the existing Architecture of Terminal 1 as well as meet the Terminal One Group Association’s (TOGA) requirements for additional gates and long term (hard stand) aircraft parking for 747 and A380 aircraft. I was primarily responsible for developing the parti and buidling masses, as well as most of the assocaited 3D modeling including existing conditions and roadways.

Developing the Parti a) Mass iterations. b) Building mass is made of three distinct parts. The land side curve houses primarily pre-security program such as ticketing and passenger pick up. The air side curve and linear bar house post-security programming such as concessions, INS, Customs, and hold rooms.

Travel Sketches Project A selection of sketches from travelling while studying in Versailles.

Time 2008-2009

Concept The curriculum of the University of Illinois Versailes program included several sketch trips where students were allowed to develop their own itinerary and experience European cities and Archtiecture first hand. The only requirement was that each student return with a full sketchbook to document their travel. These pages feature a small selection of my own.
