Dear Hiring Manager, I hold an Associate in Science degree in Architecture from UCC. Also, in Spring 2014, I successfully completed all the credits and requirements to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a minor in Environmental Studies and Sustainability from NJIT. I am currently enrolled to finish my fifth year of school during the semester of Fall 2015 toward a Bachelor Degree in Architecture from the College of Architecture and Design. With only one Comprehensive Studio left, I am currently looking for a job in New Jersey and I would like to express my interest in an entry position with your firm. Becoming an architect has been a challenge. However, the struggles I faced through this journey, have showed me my capacities to excel and achieve my goals successfully. I am a hard worker who have a passion for my career, a passion to learn and a desire to better myself. I believe my academic background and experience make me ready for this competitive environment as well as a tool to improve the visibility of women on the construction field. If you need some work sample, information or wish to talk to me, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 908 566 8539 or aricog27@gmail.com. It would greatly appreciate if you can grant me the opportunity to be part of your team and grow professionally.

Sincere regards,

Adriana Amaya

Both systems are meshed, where the sharing of space is fundamental. The bamboo members reinforce the mud and provide stability to the walls. The systems share function to ensure a safe envelope to the building and allow a variety of programatic functions.

STRUCTURE AND ENCLOSURE The two systems at this point are connected using local vegetation as strips of bamboo to tie the bundles of tatch to the bamboo structure. The systems are not sharing function.

The members are embeded in the bottom part where the mud wall is. The bamboo members reinforce the mud providing stability to the walls. On the top, the structural system become the support for the roof. The systems share function to ensure a safe envelope to the building and allow a variety of programatic functions.

The tatching roof provide shade and permeabilty while the structure is supporting the enclousure system. The structural system is angled to optimize water drainage and collection through tatch roof, also to allow light penetration and ventilation.

ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE

EXTERIOR

INTERIOR

The hopper and the awing windows can be open to allow air circulation. While the plants provide air filtration throught photosynthesis. This plants not only offer air filtration but also heat absortion. The air pass through the atached screen and can be directed inside the room either thorugh the open the window or by using the vent system.

The bay has been divided in 4 5’ curtainwall modules. The sunscreen are located at both side-ends of the bay providing shade during the summer. The curtain wall modules located on the center of the bay provide open views and light filtration. The use of double glazing with clear glass and low -E coating will prevent 72% heat gain while it allows 71% visible light transmitted 1/4� LOW-EMISSIVITY GLASS

SECTION AND PLAN 16


ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE

During the winter the space between the screen facade an the curtain wall allow the heat to build up. This help the building to absorb heat and perform efficently

Both the sunscreen and the curtain wall allow light filtration and heat gain.

CONSTRUCTION SEQUENCE

1. Existing concrete slab and columns

2. The existing facade is removed. The appropiate flashing is installed. he original vent system is reformed to be reused. Then it is set back and anchor in place. New outriggers are added to add seal and tightness to the new facede and ventilation system

4. Exterior steel brakes and plates are attached to the existing concrete slab with anchor bolts, using the appropiate sea to avoid water penetration. The steel bracing is install in place to held the aluminum sunscreen members

3. The interior glazong is placed. The vertical mullions runs from floor to cealing covering the slots between the ventilation system modular. Hopper and awing windows are install in place to allow air circulation through unit

5. Last, the die cast aluminum panels are attached to the steel bracing. The rain gutters and the irrigation system is placed. Las the polypropylene box and the green mat is install inside the panels then secure with with mesh. The seed of the plants are aleady plant on the green mat.
