Raison d’être

Lieux de ma Vie [My Life of Places]

Architectural Work Sample Mon Approche: What I think about architecture you can see in my work, and what is written is just extra. So read what I write, but remember my work.

Every project undertaken, I have made to be the most right in my mind. Each is a special place in my heart,

for my whole heart is in the visual proof that this invented space is how that place in the world should be. I cannot create architecture because I am a human and do not have this power. Though I may help in the invention of spaces, by uncovering our inherent geometries and conncectedness. These ingenuities are what underlie creation...and atmosphere. Architecture is the recognition that you and I and the objects we assemble are no more or less important to the infinity that surrounds the earth, than the sky itself.

Architecture is everything true in this world, made in an art of space and time. This structure of how we

live is our existence, balancing ritual and commonality with the dance of solidarity and discord, and indulgence and order. Between following a path and discovering a path. It is the physical form of our reality, manifested through the plasticity of life.

Introduction

Vibrato Sted [vibrato of place] program: urban infill - transformation of place site: NordVest, København with: Rasmus Frisk dates: Februrary-May 2017 at: Danish Institute for Study Abroad

Just as the notes of a composition bring life into a track, the keys of a piano and strings of a violin are the elements that found any tune. The existence of this space has elements that do not ring any tune, so what we do is adhere to the site, and further ring life into the streets by inserting nodes of connection and robust spaces to become filled with life. Once this is achieved the site may spill into its surroundings and begin to heal the barriers of the area with urban life.

Milieu Nørrebro program: future square and revitalisation of cold war bunkers site: Nørrebro, København with: Rasmus Frisk dates: January-Februrary 2017 at: Danish Institute for Study Abroad

Balance in the city is important, creating this comes from designing sequential spatial nodes of experience. Spaces where one is able to gather, smell, hear, feel, taste, and experience presence amidst a crossroads of daily commutes.

Introduction

Kulturhaus Amager program: community house for students and refugees site: København, Amager with: Rune Veile dates: August-September 2016 at: Danish Institute for Study Abroad

A place for community, where the site is a part of the building as the building is a part of the site. And, where the atmosphere is created from the life which flows through it. The life created in the space is realised by the movement through matierality and light. Through enclosure and closure, heavy and soft, ambiguous spaces of inside and out.

Introduction

Espace de Refuge program: refugee housing site: København, Amager with: Rune Veile dates: October-December 2016 at: Danish Institute for Study Abroad

“...Ce qui sera dit ici d’essentiel, c’est que la clef de l’émotion esthétique est une fonction spatiale...” -Le Corbusier

Espace de regfuge serves to grow its inhabitants while itself grows in solidifying as a place of community and peace. Where life perspectives are rooted in time perspectives, and identities which come from temporality. This space of refuge creates an atmosphere where its inhabitants gain identity, embed a life in the spirit of this place, and orient themselves with the world. Between the dwelling units are nodes of common space, layered to foster community healing from individual to group. And so, the building becomes the phenomena of the people who make it, and holds a permanence with the ability to adapt over time. Meaning, direction, and permanence lie in the unifying order of the ultimatley temporal character of the city, here we just uncover it.

Espace de Refuge, Amager, København, Fall 2016

“Refuge” is a state of ultimate temporality. The blocks of singles, doubles, and family units have the ability to adapt in the way of their inhabitants. Espace de Refuge makes the phenomena of place from community, by the life which dwells in it. Identity is created by virtue of becoming and belonging, through the space inbetween.

“Par la finesse ou la brutalité, le tumulte ou la sérénité, l’indifference ou l’intértêt; ces elements sont des elements plastiques, des formes que nos yeux voient clairement, que notre esprit mesure.” -Le Corbusier, Vers Une Architecture, 1923

Introduction

“UNTITLED 7” program: Automated design of a spatial sequence site: East Hills Warehouse - Lawrence, KS with: Kadim Al Asady (professor), and students Samir Alvi, Trevor Cadiz, Yuhua Dai, Jessie Ewing, Julia Frendo, Angela Garza, Kaitlyn Hoines, Rachel Johnston, Bumsoo Kim, Mario Lemar, Jingxiang Yang. dates: August-December 2017 at: University of Kansas School of Architecture An abstract endeavor of place construction, proving an innovation in how we build for our modern world. This Studio-Build project challenges the artist’s role in design and extends the boundaries of how space is composed. It explores possible conditions we may invent from friction fit joints. And proves the inventions through the making of a 1:1 scale model. Interrelated steps stitch together a logic structure based on an imposed grid and invented rules and physical elements emerge from the geometric play. For the first time architecture is not rooted in the built artifact, but in the result of the process of space transformation. The art here lies in the design process rather than as a result of it. https://www.deadarchitectssociety.com/design-build/

Chapelle de GĂŠometrie, Lawrence, Kansas, Fall 2015

Introduction

GĂŠomĂŠtrie Bucolique program: Non-denominational chapel site: Lawrence, Kansas with: Kent Spreckelmeyer dates: August-September 2015 at: University of Kansas School of Architecture

A place for contemplation - a chapel made by the combination of systematic lines and areas of suggested use, extrapolated from a sacred geometric figure. This concept of a chapel challenges arbitrariness by the premise of inhabiting the exact structure which composes it. Numbers and shapes are directly connected to the atmosphere they create. It is about the experience of the structure and the spatial system it defines. This geometry chapel is proof of an ambition to make a fractal of architecture that embodies geometric applications - numeric, ideal, common - into a larger and indefinite system of the built form. This geometry is not merely form-making but the primary conceptual tool for inhabitation. For me, this chapel has universal and cosmic implications, but for the rest of the world the objective is perhaps pragmatic. The idea is to give light to how unusual it would be to exist within numbers and systems, and at the same time how ordinary. In every aspect of life we are inhabiting geometry, it is just the matter of how explicit, and to what degree our architecture is daring to connect us to it.

61


Chapelle de GĂŠometrie, Lawrence, Kansas, Fall 2015

Structure and parts The chapel structure anticipates a computational approach intended to be ultimately algorithmic as well as formulaic. Constructed primitively with only wood. The application of these numeric and geometric systems makes for classic space frame construction.
