i n t e r AC T I O N Tow e r This design explores how a normative Midtown Manhattan office tower changes when a focus is placed on maximizing interaction, collaboration, and activity rather than simply on return on investment. Spaces of the building shift and overlap both in plan and section to create productive tensions between tangentially related programs. This testing of boundaries continues into the public realm at the ground floor where the distinction between building and street is pushed and pulled.

This three month opportunity consisted of handson construction work with Parsons design-build program assisting with the completion of Splash House, an addition to a WPA recreation facility in Harlem. Work Involved construction, participation in detailing in the field, as well as planning construction sequencing. The work cultivated a deeper understanding of the complications and potential of actual construction of a studio design.

Alphabet City Librar y Located on the Eastern Edge of Manhattan, The Alphabet City Library serves as a respite from hectic city life that encourages focused study. The design for this library focuses on a network of negative spaces that wind through the heart of the building. This dynamic network of connected atria and courtyards creates an inward focus and sense of community for the library goers while bringing in daylight through adjacent spaces.

Bronx Twist Houses Over the course of the twentieth century the South Bronx has been compartmentalized by numerous large scale infrastructural projects. Bronx Twist Houses is a mixed use housing complex that aims to reconnect the fractured nature of its site - disconnected from the fabric of the city and the nearby natural areas of the Bronx river. The fractured, twisted, and stepped massing results in an intertwining and permeability between the traditionally separate zones of: built-ecological; individual-communal; and inside-outside.

Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia Habitat for Humanity required designs for low cost and high performance housing solution to serve as a model for the residential neighborhoods of Philadelphia. In the resulting design for these 7 units of infill row housing, the intersection of an open communal ground floor & central light well drives the form. This organization activates the communal spaces of the home and brings ample light to the otherwise dim interior of the 14’ wide unit. Private spaces revolve around the central stairwell which becomes an dynamic space of activity and interaction. The stepped section also allows optimal solar gains and natural ventilation for Passive House performance. N
