Seton Hill Arts Center: Greensburg, PA designLAB architects, Boston, MA Project Architect 2012 - 2013 project: visual & performing arts building     type: new construction size: 50,000 sf  cost: $10 million  expected completion: Fall 2014 The Seton Hill Visual Arts Center involved the planning, design, and construction of a new visual and performing arts center for Seton Hill University in Greensburg, PA. The new Arts Center will provide production spaces and gallery/performance spaces to be used by the University as well as the local community. 3D arts will be featured in the workshops and outdoor workyards, painting and drawing and digital media will be featured in the classrooms and loft studios, and performances will be showcased in the dance studios. This new arts building, located off-campus in the heart of downtown Greensburg, will be a vital link between the University and the expanding cultural district.

Programming The new Dance and Visual Performing Arts Center presents many opportunities to serve as a gateway to the Seton Hill campus as well as the critical link in the emerging downtown cultural district. The programmatic distribution reinforces these objectives in many ways: locating community spaces on the first floor, providing street views into gallery and performance spaces, creating overlooks into the shop spaces, and celebrating the making of art in the Art Yard. The renderings to the right illustrate two spaces located on the “community” ground floor.

SHU IDENTITY INTERIOR

Building Graphics & Wayfinding Cut vinyl graphics are proposed for interior and exterior surfaces to communicate identity, exhibition, and program. The imagry is inspired by the historical means and methods of art making, which celebrates not only the rich heritage of Greensburg, but also the legacy of workshops and arts facilities. The transparent and translucent building materials are strategically composed to allow the artwork and activity on the inside of the building to transmit through to those on the outside. The streetscape therefore has the opportunity to be colored and animated by the displays and happenings within.

Moravian Academy Athletic & Wellness Center: Bethlehelm, PA designLAB architects, Boston, MA Project Manager & Designer 2009 - 2013 project: athletic & wellness center   type: new construction size: 50,000 sf  cost: $8.5 million  expected completion: Winter 2013 The new 50,000 square foot Athletic and Wellness Center for Moravian Academy in Bethlehem, PA is under construction and scheduled to open in October 2013. The center consists of a three court field house, weight and fitness room, locker rooms, a training and therapy room, office spaces and two classrooms. A generous lobby and the entry courtyard provide ample room for informal gathering before and after events or for students waiting to be picked up after practice. The building’s form is inspired by the agrarian landscape and barns of eastern Pennsylvania. Like many of these structures of utility, we found both efficency and beauty in housing the majority of the builiding’s footprint beneath one large metal shed roof, bringing natural daylight into the gyms and cooridors through the glazed gable ends and rooftop clearstories. Support spaces flank the large volume, articulated with lower roofs and softer building materials. The project is targeting LEED Silver certification from the USGBC. Some of the key sustainable aspects are the incorporation of daylighting and views, use of recycled and regional materials and optimizing energy performance.

Carney Library transforms the 1972 library into a modern hub of knowledge creation, dissemination, and interaction. Together designLAB architects and Austin Architects were responsible for the 160,000 SF renovation and the 26,000 SF, two-story addition to the Carney library at UMass Dartmouth. The addition provides the library with a new multi-purpose main entry to the building complete with a gallery, a new main circulation desk, an adaptable lecture hall, a café and gathering area, group study spaces, and a new outdoor terrace with seating in the resculpted landscape. The library expansion accommodates 212,500 volumes to suit the growth of the library collection during the next 20 years.

Professional Experience Jonathan Levi Architects | Boston, MA


IRS Service Center: Andover, MA Jonathan Levi Architects, Boston, MA Designer 2007 - 2008 In construction The General Services Administration hired Jonathan Levi Architects to renovate the IRS Andover Service Center as the latest architectural showcase of their Design Excellence Program. The 400,000sf Andover building was originally built in the 1960s and has since suffered from piecemeal modifications and incremental additions. Its current state is difficult for its occupants to comprehend and resists effective management by its administrators. JLA is upgrading the existing building rather than building new in order to achieve substantial cost savings and avoid the unnecessary consumption of new land and natural resourses.

2007: pre-renovation

Many initiatives of the project relate to the creation of a forward looking workplace with environmental features that support individual liveability, promote team building, and help to create a larger sense of community and belonging. In the creation of a sustainable, adaptable, efficient, and truly liveable workplace for its employees and management, the IRS’s culture of “service, integrity, and fairness� will be accurately reflected as a model for all to see. *Text and images adapted from the JLA publication Transforming the IRS Andover Service Center: 21st Century Workplace, for which I was a contributing editor and designer

The ceiling above the main workfloor is an aggregate of 10’x50’ acoustical fiberglass clouds, each tilted to expose views of the structure and mechanical systems above and give the space more height and openness. The ACT dampens sound transmission in the absence of walls and partitions. Lower hanging soffits accent major pathways to provide wayfinding through the 300,000sf main space. Diffusers deposit air through gaps in the ceiling, and cove lights mounted to the edges of each cloud bounce light onto the underside of adjacent ceiling panels. This system provides a soft ambiant glow while concieling the light source from viewers below.


Cove lighting and knife edge detail


Acoustical ceiling tile clouds, typical section

The angled ceiling panel design extends into the north dining courtyard, creating continuity between the inside and outside. The panels are framed with thin steel tubes and wrapped with a translucent fabric, functioning as a soft shading device for the space.


The building’s existing structural system is based on a 30’x60’ column grid. JLA encased each column within a translucent fiberglass cover, whose form also serves to hide the additional Y bracing needed for seismic reinforcing. Winter Garden plan and planter section

Column cover construction details

The Winter Garden is an indoor space that provides natural daylight from skylights above, access to trees and shrubs year round, a canteen with food preparation equipment, and smaller paved spaces for casual conversation and dining. The garden is located at the intersection of two main paths, and therefore serves as a destination point for those traversing the building.

Architectural proposal for the riverfront inspired by material investigation Program brief: Community gardens and supporting buildings structured and organized by the geometry of the surface. The organization of the buildings and topography of the surface is driven by the need to shield the gardens from the prevailing northern winds. A thin, tall bar is the form that creates the deepest calm zone behind its structure, and thus is the strategy that I employ on the site. In addition to blocking the wind, these buildings and surfaces masses provide a buffer against the noise and sight of the highway, which further promotes the beach as a site of refuge from the city. The design intends for people to meander through the site and freely choose their own route to their particular destination. These path lines merely served as guides for the creation of the surfacescape, but by no means are the only course for traversing the site. Deviations frequently occur in plan and section and thus require wayfinding strategies from the users. In all, people are meant to move freely about: through the gardens, into the greenhouse, onto unique climbing routes across the surface. In all, these paths allow each visitor a unique experience and encourage frequent visits. N

My thesis focuses on the interstitial space between automobiles and buildings. Specifically, I am challenging our current design of the experiential sequence between parking a car and entering a building. I contend that the way we currently design the interface between the car and architecture is out of step with our present use of and relationship to automobiles.

section A


The design relationship between cars and buildings is a viable point of investigation across a range of building typologies, programs, sizes, and locations. I chose to design a community college in New Haven, CT as a means for testing my thesis research. Inherent in the community college’s typology is the fact that its faculty, staff, and students commute to and from the school everyday - there are no residential facilities. I chose a site located adjacent to the modernist Temple Street Garage designed by Paul Rudolph in 1962, and used this parking structure as both a design generator and a practical design constraint for my proposed building.

Virtical circulation

Cued from my thesis research, my design of the community college focuses on the interstitial space between the realm of the car and that of the pedestrian. The sequence of vehicular movement, the organization of building program, and the zones of pedestrian spaces are choreographed together as interdependent entities.

Multi-Family Housing: South Boston Studio Critic: Yoshiko Sato Harvard Graduate School of Design Spring 2005 The studio’s site is located along the highly-trafficked main road connecting downtown Boston and South Boston. Dominating the area is a 160’ tall power plant, which sits on the opposing side of the road from our site. My proposal: to integrate a largescale supermarket plus amenity shops into a multifamily housing structure, capitalizes on the high volume of both residents and commuters in the area. Its services also aim to draw people to the under-used park and bus stops located just blocks away. In order to mitigate between the needs of pedestrians and vehicles, I have proposed to sink the roadway between the power plant and housing. This move facilitates the continuous flow of traffic, gives access to the supermarket’s underground parking, and provides pedestrians with safe movement to and from the complex.

The housing confronts the tension that exists between the dwelling unit and the car. Can an urban resident park at his or her front door? What happens when the apartment is located on the seventh floor? How present are cars in our daily lives? The design commits to providing every apartment type with one exterior space large enough to accommodate a car. Vehicles navigate to the higher stories along an interior ramp, which also serves to organize the apartment configuration. The supermarket occupies the first floor of the complex, and amenities such as a cafe, a daycare center, or a laundry mat, fill the interstitial spaces between the apartment levels. Only the residents are permitted to drive through the upper floors - shoppers access these areas through elevator cores from either the underground parking or the supermarket. Thus the complex underscores Americans’ paradoxical obsession to pervade the urban fabric - where amenities are at their figertips - with their cars.
