GENOVA ARTS DISTRICT The city of Genova is a bustling port city that is known for its industrial ship building and trading by the sea. The city has been moving outwards, expanding towards the mainland and towards the mountains. Due to the emerging technology, ship building and trade has not been as prominent within the region. The site is a relatively new development compared to the central port area. It is nestled in between the convention center and shipyard. The goal of the project is to activate this area throughout the year since its traffic is determined by the activity of the convention center. The proposal is an arts district placed on the canal that wraps around the trade fair. The district is primarily focused on displaying art back to the city through the facades of the various buildings. The facades would be considered the “performance” while the topography sloping up from the arts district acts as “seating for the stage.” The arts district is comprised of several programs that connects the existing fabric of the city to the water. The first component is the urban park that is visually brought down across the highway from an existing park. The second component is the plaza that is comprised of a controlled urban green scape, a strip of retail and eateries, and the maritime museum. The last component is the contemporary art museum which faces the back towards the city. By having interactive facades for viewing films and glass extrusions filled with art installations, the building acts as a canvas for the city. The new arts district encourages people to come from the traditional tourist destinations in the old port and fills the void between the city and water.

CIRCULATION There are two axial entrances into the site. One faces the city and the other faces the main highway from the old port. Since there is 4m elevation change within the site, there are several different ways to experience the movement. Small boats can go underneath the bridges enabling viewing of the facade by the water.

DAYLIGHTING The site is oriented for a lot of pleasant northern daylit spaces. The south and east facades are controlled by the shading of the exisiting structures. The main gallery has a skylight and monitor enabling for a rich, daylit space in an iconic part of the site. The glass extrusions in the galleries enable for controlled daylit spaces.

PUBLIC SPACES Just like the city of Genoa, the site is comprised of varying levels of controlled green space. The darker color represents a more free  owing green space while the lighter color is a more controlled space in terms of views and circulation. The hatch shows hardscape that would inevitably be used as public space due its active nature.

FACADES The facades of the art museum are essential to this project. The darker facade is the main canvas for the city as the adjacent facade allows for displays of art through the extrusions. The lightest facade is the main sight for visitors coming from the old port city.

VIEWING paneled facade is used as louvered system during the day to bring in more light to the lobby and closes at night to project films on; city of genoa slopes down to the site that acts as a stage

PROGRAM the temporary exhibit is outside since it is flexible and ramps up to the permanant galleries, using the elevation change to start the journey through museum

GREENSPACE extension of the park from the city to the site and across the canal CONNECTION multi-leveled bridge connects to both levels of the site allowing for accessible and easy flow of circulation

AROUND THE BLOCK The site of this urban housing project is situated on the edge of the physical limits of Paris, next to Pantin. This is one of the last undeveloped parcels of land in Paris. The challenge with the site is the Peripherique (highway) that divides the site in two. There are couple of preexisting programs on the site such as the Halle Aux Cuirs which houses storage for Parc De La Villette, artist residents, and a circus. The site is also bordered by the tram directly north of the site winding around the site east, a secondary street feeding into the highway from the west, and the canal to the south. Around the site exists the variety of programs that were sorted in work, live, culture, and leisure which were the main aspects to incorporate back into the site. In the current situation of the site, the mass is centered within the site which disconnects from the site edges and surrounding context. To address this condition, we decided to inverse the existing condition to design along the edges and reconnect to the site’s surroundings both in the immediate and urban context. The center would now be the “void” that is develop into landscape and acts as a connecting element throughout the site. The “belt” is a 6m tall structure that wraps around the belt acting as a filter for the circulation through the site. The belt contained programs of the existing storage program and back of house programs such as parking, administrative offices, etc. On top of the belt, we explored three differing typologies of live and work. The first typology was “mixed” where the housing and work programs could be integrated onto the same floor. The second typology was “split” as the housing was set into the interior of the site while the work faced the street side looking down onto the tram. The third typology was “live” as we envisioned more permanent residence with larger families to occupy the least “urban” parcel of the site.

AUSTIN BRANCH LIBRARY The Austin Branch Library is located in the busy street of South Congress. The secondary program is a sculpture garden and gallery that acts as a civic and public green space that contrasts the commercialism of South Congress. The form was generated by the decision to break and recede from the street front as well as referencing the tree line that was protected on the back of the site. This created an open courtyard and sculpture garden, which then the library wrapped around. Since the building wraps around a courtyard, there is plenty of daylight within the gallery spaces and readings stacks. There are also several patios and outdoor spaces integrated within the library. The building can be broken down into three components: lobby, garden, and stacks. The sculptures and art would lead the way into the stacks to possibly enlighten or intrigue the passing inhabitants. Circulation can be experienced both indoor and outdoor through the site and the library as each of these programs are a threshold into one other and integrate reading through all parts of the site.

LJUSSTAV The courtyard between the school of architecture and the west mall building is no more than an overlooked passageway. There are some intermittently placed lights that dimly lit the area. Students hardly ever stop within the space after dark. The objective of the lighting project is to create a safe and enjoyable atmosphere at night walking through the courtyard. Ljusstav is a lighting luminaire, which acts as a movable bollard placed within the site to provide lighting for students who seek to use this space during the night time. The design is fully parametric and customizable as this specific prototype was the right height to lean up against or set down books, drinks, etc. The silhouette of the luminaire tapers up from the ground creating an organic and intriguing form. The plates were generated in Rhinoceros, rotating along several points. Then the we cut out acrylic plates to fit around a plastic LED light tube that was reinforced with wooden supports that fed into the slits of the acrylic plates. The wood was a thick dark walnut base that followed the form of the luminaire. At night the base is not very visible and the rest of the plates seem to hover in the space.

EATALY Eataly is a chain of Italian markets that are located all over the world. Most of these markets encompass a food court as well as local amenities. The site of this specific Eataly is located west of the University of Texas campus on Nueces and 24th St. Since there are so many students living and commuting within this area, this market is surrounded by constant activity. This intervention is an opportunity to create a moment of interest within the student population as well as the neighboring residents of west campus. The goal of this project was to reactivate the street level, allowing students and local residents the accessibility of a well-integrated market and a social hub close to campus. Since this program was located within a mixed used zone, visibility of public spaces are important. The market space and food courts are visible through the street while the rooftop patio can be seen from neighboring buildings. To maximize accessibility of the building for pedestrians and commuters, Eataly connects to the parking garage behind it. The main entrance is also faces towards 24th Street, which is the busiest street. The service entrance is through the less crowded Nueces Street.

EUROPE SKETCHES In the first month of the study abroad program, the objective of the course was to see and experience different forms of European cities and their architecture. The cities that were visited on this trip were Copenhagen, Berlin, Stuggart, Cologne, Bregenz, Lugano, Lucerne, Basel, Brussels, Milan, and Paris. The idea of this class was to explore different typologies within different cities. Drawing and painting has always been one of my passions that has benefited me through architecture school. It is important to me to always being clear about communicating ideas through drawing. Being exposed to other cities widens the lens of my design. These upcoming sketches are some of my fondest places that I had visited during my time abroad.

Summer 2017 Principals: Juan Miro, Miguel Rivera 13 Weeks

MIRO RIVERA ARCHITECTS At Miro Rivera Architects, I worked primarily on two high-end residential homes in West Austin. The first home was called the Rocky River Residence and it was in its construction phase. I mostly worked on detail of the custom cabinetry and custom furnishings in the house. The second project was still in the design phase which was a gym addition to a previous project by the firm. I had the opportunity to design the layout of the substantially sized gym as well as finalize the structural systems that was exposed within. I also helped out with any other projects going on in the office. Some of the renderings are from a smaller residence that used an aluminum piping facade that looked out to the city. Working in a professional environment refined my technical skills while also engaging in realized architecture. The variation of clients and projects encouraged different design approaches and methods that I am able to apply to my future works.
