Internship with ISA

Front Rendering of the “Passive Project” for Interface Studio Architects, Aug. 2009

Internship with ISA The Passive Project was a great opportunity for me, and I have to say thanks to all of ISA. The Passive Project, or the Kensington Tigers as they are affectionately called, are the follow up to the 100k houses that stormed the Philadelphia architecture scene a few years ago. The design logic was a response to the growing demand for green homes and the even faster growing demand for affordable housing. Not only was this project unique architectually, but it took steps forward from the 100k model, and in doing so, met the German Passiv Haus standard. The new buildings incorporated state of the art heat pumps, photo-voltaic arrays and extremely high efficiency appliances. This project holds a great deal of depth in design as well as its greeen ideals. Designing an infill project in philadephia makes a project like this a constant battle to maintain identity. And after the success of the 100k house we focused on reinventing the wheel, thereby breaking our own mold.

Internship with ISA Simultaneously, we were working with the client to help in launching www.postgreenhomes.com where prospective buyers can customize their houses from a stock line of Postgreen Homes. The website allows its user to design portions of their home down to types of fixtures and beyond. The incredible versatility in design has given the client the ability to strive in a hostile housing market. All eight completed projects have been sold and many of the next homes in the series has been presold. The modern approach to traditional living is a real interest to me and, since so few of my projects in school have been housing based, these projects with ISA have been a profound learning experience.

4th Year Studio Designed to be situated between 20th Street, 21 St. Street, and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, this building is intended to work in conjunction with the other members of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway museum network. And although it is a proposed member of this select community, the Philadelphia Museum of Contemporary Art maintains its individuality through shrewd design moves and bold exterior. This building was designed for my fall 2009 comprehensive studio. The massive amount of program space and the level of detail within the model made for an interesting and engaging design problem. However, I think, the overall product is well deployed and clearly expresses the form and intent of the building. The proposal for this project was much more conservative than I am used to, but it accomplished the studio goals with gusto and provided me with a plethora of architectural experience. The approximately 200,000 SF required at least two floors and already threatened to dwarf is neighbors. The low surrounding buildings were engaged by re-sculpting the groundscape to have a depression that my building’s mass could lay into and rise out of; thereby reducing its impact on the neighboring buildings.

NOTE:

This project was awarded an honorable mention at the AIA West Jersey 2010 Student Design Awards.

4th Year Studio Since September of 2011 I have been employed at Civitas Architects in Philadelphia PA. Civitas specializes in boutique dental and orthodontic office design. Although, primarily an interior design firm, I have worked on several complete architectural works. In addition, I have designed and managed the construction of several treatment clinic areas, labs, and sterilization areas. The combination of design and technical elements made each project a challenging design task. In addition, responding to each clients individual needs and patient bases made working for civitas a dynamic work experience. I have also completed several designs utilizing resin, large scale wall graphics, printed canvas and custom tile. Each of which, proved to be challenging design hurdles to overcome. These feature elements improved design quality and helped to provide an atmosphere., And earn the firm a 3form people’s design award. The project to the left, was a pediatric dental office, located in New Jersey. The design includes ceiling mounted resin panels depicting leaves along with clouds in other areas. The large wall graphics were meticulously coordinated with the installer, general contractor and client

This project was completed with Per Sanstrom, annother Temple University Studedt, as part of our reaserch design studio. It proposed a modular design system that would be modular at the urban, building and cladding scale. In addition, this poject offered a modular architectural product as a means with wich a neighborhood could reinvest in it’s own identity, thereby creating a sense of ownership within the localized community.
