UVA Innovation Center + Water Commons Charlottesville, Virginia Spring 2019 | ARCH 3020 | ARCH 3260: Building Matters Instructor: Schaeffer Somers + Seth McDowell Project type + duration: Academic, one semester Situated on one of the lowest sites in Charlottesville, the UVA Innovation Center and Water Commons act as a filter for the natural conditions and innovative ideas that flow through the site. This building links the larger Charlottesville community with its access from Emmet Street and becomes an addition to the UVA community with its connection to Arts Grounds, Carr’s Hill, and Central Grounds. The UVA Innovation Center is the heart for innovation with public and private spaces for social gathering research, and residential purposes. It functions as the gateway for ideas to its adjacent communities and commuters. Located along train tracks, the UVA Innovation Center becomes a stop for other communities as the North facing facade is a light rail station. This intersection of communities allows for ideas and projects to advance and carry out. Responding to the proposal for Ivy Corridor, the Water Commons is the filtration for water, vegetation, and other natural elements. It responds to the geographical conditions and allows the building to work with water versus against water. The landscape connects to the Ivy Corridor through its paths of circulation, the vegetation, and the traffic of waterways. The Water Commons performs as an inviting, public space for the face of the UVA Innovation Center.

Analysis of Building Envelope, Structure and Material Systems

On the south facing facade of the UVA Innovation Center, the main enclosure system contains double glazing with mechanically-operated wooden louvers. The wooden sunscreen provides thermal isolation and coverage for the storefront glass facade system. Situated between the wooden louvers and glass facade is a ventilated cavity for service use. The wooden louvers rotate depending on the weather conditions and the amount of sunlight transparency needed into the space. This system is beneficial to the innovation programs because they allow for users to manipulate the sunscreen based on the events occurring in the space. The use of a double glazing system creates open views to the landscape and natural ventilation throughout the space. The steel structure helps support the fixated wooden sunscreen and the cantilever system from the upper level. The enclosure system implemented on the south-facing facade enhances the experience of its users and contributes to the energy conservation of the building.

Bowery Chinatown’s Music Guildhall

Bowery, New York Fall 2018 | ARCH 3010 Instructor: Jeana Ripple Project type + duration: Academic, one semester

PARK ANALYSIS

The Bowery Music Guildhall highlights on the revival of visual and performing arts in the Lower East Side’s Chinatown. The history of the old Bowery Music Palace and experiential conditions of Sara D. Roosevelt Park influenced my initial schematic design. This project connects the horizontal and vertical landscapes of the city block located between Chrystie and Bowery Streets. The horizontal landscape of Chrystie resembles the typography of the Sara D. Roosevelt Park through the transition of primary circulation paths to the theatre. The vertical landscape of Bowery Street displays the upward emergence of the urban grid. The vertical landscape mimics the staggering openings occupied for double-heighted exhibition and feasting spaces.

Both systems of landscape compliment the function - a makerspace for Chinese instruments and theatre sets, as well as, a place of exchange, feasting, living, workshop, and public interface. With direct access from the subway on Chrystie, this proposal enhances the exposure of artist talents and allows for the public to interact and exhibit. This project allows for apprentices and all audiences to participate in the bridging of art and music back into the Bowery community.

Columbia Heights’ Mixed Use Square

Washington D.C. Spring 2017 | ARCH 2020 Instructor: Margarita Jover Biboum Project duration: Academic, one semester This project focuses on different scales of thresholds that enhance the functionality of a living and working space. Influenced by the method of Urbanism by Cooperation, this project highlights on the residential densification of Columbia Heights with the integration of collectiveness. Characterized with single and duplex units, 9 centralized cores, 3 levels of lower mixed-use, and amenities, this project embodies a hybrid nature of programs defined by thresholds. To sustain and work with the topographical features, large scale thresholds such as canopied openings and excavated voids are the primary entrance points into the project. On a medium scale, the integration of libraries within the cores and the linkage of units through balconies facing south for solar orientation present affordances for education and exposure to nature. Shown on a smaller scale, thresholds such as oriel windows are found in residential units to promote the intimate interaction with nature and communityDefined through the materiality of wood and the organization of a “L”, thresholds are implemented in this project to highlight physical and psychological interactions in residential and commercial spaces.

Charlottesville’s Green Market Square

Charlottesville, Virginia Fall 2017 | ARCH 2010 Instructor: Daniel Mowery Project type + duration: Academic, one semester After exploring the city of Charlottesville, this project proposal aims to assist the lack of green, public spaces in the heart of Downtown Mall and bridge the disconnection between income and education. Situated on the parking lot adjacent to the Water Street Garage, the Charlottesville’s Green Market Square provides a co-operative space of vegetation terraces, an aquarium, and a local market. These programs help expose the growth cycle of vegetation and aquatic growth to people of all ages and backgrounds as the building blocks to a collective, green community. The building blocks expressed through the staggering of terraces compliments the seasonal saturday market on the adjacent terraces. Perhaps, the offset of levels mimics the topological features that are present on the site. Overall, this project gathers the community together for a hands-on and educational experience to help remedy Charlottesville’s urban concerns.

Amanishah Nala Drain Revitalization + Green Spine Jaipur, Rajasthan India Fall 2019 | ARCH 4010 | Collaboration with Qinmeng Yu Instructor: Marias Gonzalez Aranguren + Pankaj Vir Gupta The Yamuna River Project Project type + duration: Academic, 3 months On the Boards, Working iteration The green spine aims to convert the dry sub-terrain to a 3.6 km green passageway through the connection of public spaces between the Aravali Hills and Dravyavati River. The existing drain conditions vary from exposed to covered which contributes to the clogging of the drain’s arteries. The proposed project daylights the drain and incorporates park systems with storm water treatment, pedestrian and bicycle circulation, and public facilities that accommodate all income groups. Situated in a dense urban fabric, the implementation of XS, S, M, L systems with facilities helps remediate the contaminated water, mitigate the seasonal fluctuations, reshape the drainage, and provide public amenities for the communities of Jaipur. Through the natural process of phytoremediation, the Green Spine inhabits many aquatic species that contribute to the revitalization of the drain’s sewage, contaminated soil, and unsanitary water. This project addresses the congestion of roads, waterways, and neighborhoods through a new system of public spaces: green passages, urban farm, river park, daylighting neighborhood riverfront, and wetlands. Our next steps moving forward are to explore other scales of public spaces along the drain.

X- SMALL SCALE SITE The existing covered drain is capped with a layer of concrete . The concrete surface is unoccupied and often consructed in line with homes along the drain. Areas that are open have an exposed drainage and appear to be full of waste and polluted water. We infered that the sewage from homes is collected through open drainage systems in front of their homes. In hopes to remediate the existing conditions of the drain, we are interested in proposing a system of phytoremediation, a connection of pedestrian bridges, an improved drainage system below ground, and implementation of xs scale communal toilets.

MEDIUM SCALE SITE The exisiting conditions of the drain at the medium scale site is open and full of waste and polluted water. This site we chose to explore appears to be a major turning point for the drainage as it transitions from open to capped. This site currently contains 12 Swachh Bharat toilets that is open at all times. The community appears to be using the public facilties; however, we noticed a distinct divide in the income groups as the drainage was a clear, physical barrier to the stalls. Based on our analysis, we are interested in proposing designs that help remediate and purify the existing drain through the implementation of waste collection points, an underground drainage, a pedestrain bridge that stitches the income groups, and public space that creates a more inviting environment for interaction.
