Proposal for the U.S. Pavilion, Venice Biennale 2012 undergraduate studio 4, winter 2012 studio critic: Mireille Roddier

2012 Wallenberg Studio Award winning project The experience of the pavilion begins before one enters the Biennale. An affiliated website displays live video and text from the US pavilion. The online visitor sees the pavilion’s occupants on display in a white gallery space dotted with what appear to be security cameras. What the video feed does not reveal is that this constructed stage masks the existence of other spaces. The physical occupant can see what the video camera cannot: a series of hidden spaces that reveal contemporary modes of American secrecy: a screening room for leaked military videos, an observatory for classified spy satellites, a printer that slowly unveils declassified data, among others. These hidden spaces offer protection from public view, while enabling counter-surveillance against existing means of control. By producing an asymmetrical relation between viewers and viewed, this pavilion results in an open secret, hidden in plain sight.

Living City Limits

Medellin, Colombia graduate design studio, Fall 2012 studio critic: Giancarlo Mazzanti, Ignacio Gonzalez Galan Medellin is outgrowing its natural edges. As informal settlements continue to be built on unstable slopes around the city, the urban border becomes an important space for action. Rather than creating a boundary against urban expansion, this proposal turns the edge of the city into a space for different kinds of expansion: economic, social, and educational. The border will be articulated by a productive landscape, which consolidates existing small-scale farms into a cooperative enterprise. Productive facilities are placed at intervals along a path. These structures are exaggerated and enlarged to accommodate economic and social exchange. The productive structures perform on multiple levels. They aid in agricultural processes, and they make these processes visible through their overscaled massing and their inhabitable spaces. Scaled to have an urban presence, the border becomes an inviting landscape that combines exchange and production, work and play. This proposal is projected at an urban scale, as a prototype for a new perimeter of intense encounter between the urban and the natural.

Triple Shadow Double Frame Mills Lawn Elementary School, Yellow Springs, Ohio 2012-2013 with Keith Mitnick and Mireille Roddier Like a line drawing among the trees, this pavilion consists of two cantilevered steel frames that seem devoid of weight or mass. From different vantage points, the structure’s shape seems to change, sometimes framing views of the surroundings, sometimes taking on a figural presence, sometimes disappearing into the trees. Each half will be accompanied by a concrete trace of its shadow cast into the ground. These shadows will be traced in two different seasons, giving the structure two different “false” shadows in addition to its literal shadow. Sited on the grounds of an elementary school, the structure becomes an educational tool for learning about space, perspective, light, and astronomy.

concept study: “canon� undergraduate studio 3, fall 2011 studio critic: Keith Mitnick Initially based on the musical form of the canon, this project explores the efffects of doubling. In preliminary formal studies, literal duplication produces double-meanings. When the two identical parts are combined, in-between spaces are produced which exist outside of the operation of copying. This operation was carried out first on a two-dimensional shape, then on a three-dimensional architectural composition.

Double Feature: hotel, film office and cinemas Detroit, Michigan With two identical forms structurally supporting each other, this proposal uses doubling to explore issues of perception Circulation routes produce experiences of deja-vu. Views between twin spaces create self-consciousness. On the site, two drive-in movies face each other: one projected on an existing abandoned structure, one on the proposed building. 30

On a site in close proximity to existing libraries, this new branch library offers something different: a drive-through borrowing service. The ground level is open to vehicles, accommodating drive-through service and parking. Library media is stored inside an elevated volume. This large, open space is punctured by vertical circulation, open light wells, and several specific public spaces in faceted, glazed volumes. The largest of these volumes contains the drive-in window, and negotiates between the level of the vehicle and the level of the library.
