natural STUCTURE taking our cues from the sun As the world’s outlook on both local and global environmental issues changes, so must an architect’s design process. With the introduction of the LEED accreditation and its growing popularity, combined with a stricter set of laws focused on energy conservation, the core principle of this exercise was to gain an understanding of and appreciation for the natural resources readily available on a site. Located in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx, this greenhouse compound, inspired by various designs found in nature, capitalizes on the effects the sun has on buildings and harnesses its power to better suit our needs. The complex houses a market and restaurant meant to sell produce grown on-site, as well as an education center and lecture hall to teach visiting students about horticulture and the environment. The length of the greenhouse runs on a north-south axis in order to exploit the maximum amount of light available throughout the year. In order to prevent the structure’s wings from interfering with the sunlight, they were designed to stretch out perpendicularly. This layout also allows visitors entering the building to view the interior of the greenhouse, despite not having direct access. For the market, an open plan was created to capture the feel of an open-air farmers market while the restaurant and lecture hall serves as s central hubs, connecting the elements of the complex (top right). To maintain the green integrity of the project, water from the Bronx River would be treated to levels equal to that of grey water and then used to irrigate plants and operate other non-potable water units. Additionally, by taking advantage of the stack effect and the natural cross breeze that flows along with the river, the greenhouse’s HVAC system is kept to a minimum.

Because plants are naturally designed to maximize the use of sunlight, their anatomy also influenced the vocabulary of the design as well as the program. In all vascular plants there are nodes that that hold buds which grow into one or more leaves. Taking inspiration from these nodes, the restaurant and lecture hall serves as focal points that ties the two leafs to the main greenhouse while still holding the look of the rest of the structure.

Upon a detailed study of the sun’s path and its effects upon the site, the need to create a free flowing structure that allows as much light to penetrate the building as possible became the primary concern. Rather than create an arbitrary grid and truss system, a series of arches , inspired by this path, was. This concept not only creates a dynamic appearance, but meets functional needs as well. These arches are built out to a length of 45’ made up of reinforced concrete. Built in sections off site with identical forms and then being assembled on site, this would cut down time and money during the construction phase.

5GRGTCVKQP (WUKQP CUVWF[KPVJGRGTOGCDKNKV[QHUQEKGV[ Connecting various cultures within a melting-pot society relies on finding a common element that links these seemingly independent groups. While the human race is comprised of people from all different backgrounds, most of them have at least one shared interested - music. Songs are generally created using the same elements including melody, harmony, rhythm, tempo, and pitch. Despite these common components, music across cultures can be highly diverse. Musicologist Jean-Jacques Nattiez summarizes the relativist, post-modern viewpoint: "The border between music and noise is always culturally defined—which implies that, even within a single society, this border does not always pass through the same place; in short, there is rarely a consensus ... By all accounts there is no single and intercultural universal concept defining what music might be." Astoria, NY, home to over 100 different languages and cultures, is part of the most ethnically diverse county in the United States. In the past, residents of this area generally congregated with people of the same ethnicity. Now, with a decrease in immigration and new Americans moving to other cities, ties to the old country are slowly being severed. While these immigrant cultures remain in Astoria, other American sub-cultures have begun to take shape. In an effort to bring this fragmented community together, while still allowing residents to connect with their own culture, the introduction of a music venue is an ideal solution. The concept of having a connection between any two (or more) separate entities inevitably results in at least some overlap. In the diagram to the right we see two objects in a multitude of differing scenarios, depicting how overlap is unavoidable when common elements are shared. This notion of overlapping, as it relates to varying cultures and music genres, serves as the basis for this music venue concept. Using precedents and form studies as inspiration for the design, the structure’s architecture serves as the physical representation of this sociological phenomenon. The venue is comprised of a world music store that serves as the intersection between two separate stages for live performances. Permeability, control of sound and light, physical contact, and structure will all be pushed to explore the mixing and gradient for a unique visitor experience.

With the study of the relationships between the separation due to the bamboo and the connection of people grouping together due to the water environments a dialog was created between the public, the structure and the effects which were all categorized in gradient form seen below. A contour diagram too shows the differing population densities in relation to the water systems. In order to create a physical representation of the ideas between events (water environments / concerts) and the public’s connection/detachment from them a study of sheet metal pinched at certain locations. The sheet metal being pinched to represent differing affects the contour gradient. These contours are then sectioned off and those sections were aligned to create the primary structural unit that has been extruded from the contour. From there it was sketched out with ribs in a axonometric view to show possible real world situations.

As head draftsman for the Carnegie Building, I was responsible for setting up and categorizing all drawings, managing other architects, assisting in the design process, and working directly with the firm’s partners. At a height of 952’, this 73 floor building was to be a luxury hotel and residential high-rise located in Midtown Manhattan. Comprised of 126 apartments, ranging from 1 bedroom to 5 bedroom units, and 195 hotel rooms, this property was set to be managed by Hyatt. The first two floors include separate entrances for hotel guests and residents, retail and office space, a restaurant, ballroom and bars/lounges. On the 20th floor is a fully equipped gym with sauna/steam room, lap pool, and beauty salon. Due to the economic downturn in 2008, this project was cancelled by the developer. PF(NQQT2NCP

This outpatient rehab center, designed by DaSilva Architects, incorporates the style of a day spa with the professionalism of Memorial Sloan Kettering. Located in a commercial high-rise building, this site has split its primary functions between two floors. The upper level contains most of the offices and managerial staff of the center, while the lower level houses patients physical therapy and treatment areas. Boasting a fully equipped gym, dance studio, nine exam rooms, complete indoor park, kitchen and full bath for real life practice scenarios, this center meets the needs of its patients without the negative associations of a medical facility. Responsible for reviewing all drawings and trade coordination, I directed subs with scheduling and resolve issues concerning drawing to existing conditions discrepancies. I also advised the architect on how to reorganize the space to gain maximum efficiency when original plans were unable to be built due. In addition, I was put in charge of running meetings with the architects, owners, and sub-contractors as well as the day to day office management.

In order to manage the projected increase of patients, the Nuclear Medicine wing was given new, faster and more accurate equipment. This resulted in the need for new and renovated exam rooms and an extension of the existing waiting room and physiciansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offices. JGN Construction built exam rooms that are unique in their use of an open, all-glass control area. The openness of the rooms and lighting provide patient comfort, while the unique ceiling design provides an environment where patients can focus their attention on the surroundings rather than the medical equipment or the test. As acting foreman I lead a team of 40+ workers from varying trades to complete the project. Responsibilities included reviewing all drawings and specs, coordinating trades, consulting with General Electric PETscan installers and MSKCC staff, all while managing the development of a daily report system for multiple job sites.
