UNCYCLED: THE DIRTY TRUTH ABOUT PLASTIC Everyone knows why recycling is beneficial, but did you know only 10% of the plastic in your recycling bin actually gets recycled? This shortcoming is vital to address through awareness and education to insure a sustainable, clean, and healthy future. The simplest way to communicate the complicated concepts of plastic waste and recycling is through clear visual language. Images are so much more eloquent than text, whether its a massive pile of plastic refuse, or the byproducts of a new recycling technology, or an individual’s video testimony about how this has affected their life. Grand Central Station serves as a daily portal into Manhattan for thousands of commuters, as well as a highlight of many tourists visits to the city, so it is a relevant venue for an issue like plastic recycling which affects visitors both local and global equally.

MISSION STATEMENT “Uncycled: The Dirty Truth About Plastic” exhibition intends to be a catalyst for change by raising awareness about the failures of current plastic recycling, and illustrating the critical necessity to create change. It presents case studies of real world solutions that address the two main steps to “closing the loop”; reducing plastic usage and improving recycling technology. The exhibition opens a dialogue with all visitors about individual responsibility for plastic condumption, and new solutions to be explored.

PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA II This eight-week project involved research and design of President Obama’s future presidential library, to be located in the Curran O’Toole Building (formerly St. Vincent’s Medical Center) in New York’s Greenwich Village. Included in the process was content, programming, and archive research, as well as schematic design of public areas, research space, a presidential suite, and museum exhibits. One of the goals was to expose the intricacies of such a programmatically complex space as a part of the visitor experience. To this end, the design strategy involves separate but intertwined paths of circulation to maintain necessary security restrictions while connecting visitors to the archives and research component of the library.

MAD (WO)MEN NOW: OFFICE DESIGN The corporate offices of this branding agency were designed for the top two floors of the former SOM Pepsi-Cola building at 500 Park Ave. The design centered around movement and interaction between staff members and different areas of the office, and as such, the transitions between spaces became the focus of the project. Changes in elevation, together with changes or continuity among lighting, furniture, and materials, are used to strategically facilitate or discourage interaction among staff members. Boundaries between areas are considered using the above elements to link spaces, separate spaces, or create a space within a space.

RESIDENTIAL REDUX This apartment occupies the seventh and eighth floors of the Richard Meier tower at 173 Perry Street in New York City’s West Village. It was designed for a multi-generation family consisting of a semi-retired banker in his seventies, two middle-aged parents and professionals, and their two young children. The design is organized around a machine-like object inserted into the middle of the space, spanning both floors. The object consists of a central spine with perpendicular arms projecting off of it, and it contains storage, lighting, a kitchen, bathrooms, and seating.
