BERLINER TOWER 21ST CENTURY HOUSING TYPOLOGIES Workshop, 2017 ANCB & UK/CoD Tasked with the developing a housing strategy in the center of Tempelhof-SchÜneberg, one of the 12 boroughs in Berlin, the proposal directly contradicts the historic horizontal nature of Berlin that tops out at 22m by introducing a 212m tall tower. The essence of Berlin life, art galleries, gardens, street delicacies, beirgartens, and clubs can found ascending up the tower. Le Corbusier’s notion of adding public space to residential buildings to allow inhabitants to live, work, and play is referenced through the a vertical strategy. This allows for the beloved Schrebergergartens (garden houses) an opportunity to expand as the tower only has a footprint equivalent to two Schrebergarten lots, sparing them from destruction. This model for a 21st Century housing typology in Berlin can be replicated across the city around Schrebergartens to keep typical life in mind while going vertical to invigorate life beneath it.

MAINSTREAM EARLY INTERVENTION SCHOOL Studio, 2016 Kate Schaefer UK/CoD & A4LE We did extensive research into how design can affect children with severe cognitive disabilities by intervening early in the child’s education to mainstream them into the general population of students when they are cognitively ready. Early intervention is the process of having a child diagnosed with a cognitive disability as soon as possible, as early as birth to pre-k. The location of the school was chosen to be on the University of Kentucky’s Campus across from the college of education to allow education students and faculty to co-teach and conduct research without having to leave campus. The University of Kentucky is also central to all of Kentucky and can become a hub for cognitive research and early intervention schooling, which the state currently lacks proper tools to best accommodate children with cognitive disabilities. The site becomes a campus within a campus with an implied path towards the heart of the university to show that children with severe cognitive disabilities have the potential to get to the university through mainstreaming.

EARLY INTERVENTION PROCESS

goal is to have children diagnosed as early as possible to have the best results in the classroom

SOCIAL ZONES

social interaction is forced upon students to build communication skills

SENSORY SPACES

students are able to calm down through sensations of touch, color, and sound

LEARNING PODS

students are grouped together based on cognitive ability rather than age

TAKE A BOOK LEAVE A BOOK LITTLE FREE LIBRARY Commission, 2017 Nick Hodge Lexington Downtown Development Authority Our Little Free Library for the Lexington Transit Center breaks the house-like structure on a pole design that is typically associated with a Little Free Library. We wanted people to sit and engage with the library as they wait for the bus rather than take a book and/or leave a book and then walk away. We designed a visually interesting structure that is both a grounded bench and a cantilevered bookshelf with spaces for different types of reading material, a carved space for magazines, a large lower space for children’s books, and a taller space for adult books. Upon completion it quickly became the most successful intervention at the downtown transit center as it immediately engaged people and circulated over 500 books in the first month.

EXPLODED PINK CUBES ANAMORPHIC PROJECTION Installation, 2017 Freddy Maggiorani & Kevin Hernandez UK/CoD The main circulatory condition through the Garden Level of Pence Hall, takes students and faculty through a long and narrow corridor out the back door. At a specific point in the beginning of the corridor the viewer’s field of vision puts a picture plane together that negotiates the space to read as if it is floating through the space. It is placed on the walls, floor, and ceiling and stretched in perspective down the corridor to create the visual effect. It creates visual interest and seemingly widens the corridor as you encompassed by the installation as you move through the space and it stretches and breaks around you.

GARDEN LEVEL INTERVENTION COLLEGE OF DESIGN CAFE & LOUNGE 48-Hour Design Charrette, 2018 Hannah DiNardo, Nick Hodge & Emily Hozza UK/CoD Right away we knew that we wanted to create a ceiling mounted linear element that visually connected and defined both cafĂŠ and lounge space across the Garden Level of Pence Hall, which is the main building of the College of Design. We proposed a suspended ribbed baffle system that starts from beneath the stairwell defining the lounge, rises against the stairwell and cascades across the space as it terminates into the formation of the shelves for the cafĂŠ. The design combats the prevalence of noise though baffles and it creates an inviting space that is easily transformable to allow for students and faculty to stop and grab a coffee, mingle, present work, relax, or have a place to do work outside of their studio or office all of which is not offered currently within the college.
