Puntacana Housing Reinterpreting the Beach Experience Published in Archivos de Arquitectura Antillana: Issue 041

[with Wenjia Wu]

Upon visiting Puntacana, we noticed the natural tendency to desire beach front property. What we began to wonder was, “why exactly is this property so special?” While visiting our assigned site, we immediately recognized its lack of beach front property. However, rather than seeing our landlocked site as a negative, we viewed it as an opportunity to re-interpret the “beach experience.” We essentially introduced a lake to our site as a way to contradict and question the static, primarily visual interaction with an expansive water body. In creating this small lake, there are inherently two sides, rather than one. By placing multi-family housing on both sides, we instantly create a much more dynamic interaction by introducing the residents to the opportunity to engage the water itself as a method for traversing our site. In realizing the potential to use water as a mode of transit, we recognized that one shouldn’t simply cross the water, but perhaps also stop within it. With this idea, we chose to introduce a large bar building containing both condominiums and public programs to become a point of interaction between both sides of our water feature. This large building becomes something in which people are always moving within and through. This is no longer your typical beach experience, where you look out or swim out and turn around. Rather, this bar building establishes a new interactive social hub for Puntacana. 4

Super Studios Redefining the Center This project is conceived of as a means for the reaffirmation of a public center. Noticing the distance of greenspace from the highly pedestrian Armory Square area, the project aims to create an open gathering space; a means of engagement between the Armory Square district (civic) and Syracuse University (academic). A folded landscape is extruded upward defining the spaces below. With a creek passing directly through the center of the site, this primary form is then duplicated, rotated one hundred and eighty degrees, and placed on the opposite side water. The two forms are then linked by a skybridge passing over the creek, visually twisting as is combines the two forms. At the ground floor, the academic facing side contains a lounge and laundromat while the civic facing side is populated with flexible office and conference space, each serving to increase the number of students and city residents populating the structure. On the floors above, student apartments and a hotel rooms further encourage a potential exchange between different, at times disjointed, demographics. This rotation about the creek establishes the site as a new center point, redefining the understanding of this area as the true focal point of downtown Syracuse. Furthermore, it defines a relationship with other public locations within the city, allowing them all to be understood as radiated from this central point.

Underground Railroad Museum Quilt Interpretations The Underground Railroad invokes the image of a journey to freedom, thus a building about sequence naturally follows. But rather than simply making a generic “journey,” the project calls out a certain element that was pivotal to the success of the path to freedom: the coded quilt patterns. These quilts with their abstract symbols, displayed on the front porches of those individuals helping African Americans on their escape to free territories, were critical to the success of the Underground Railroad. Selecting to interpret the “Log Cabin” pattern which represents a safe house, the museum itself becomes a safe haven which serves to educate the visitor. However, the pattern is not simply placed somewhere easily visible or used as simple surface treatment, instead it is disguised. Much like it was up to the travelers of the Railroad to figure out the meaning of the different quilt symbols over time, the sequence through the project slowly reveals more elements of the pattern. Beginning on the ground floor, more and more clues suggest a changing environment. Upon reaching the 4th floor permanent galleries, the visitor travels between them via suspended walkways which form the Log Cabin pattern. These galleries on the top floor are made of wood, referencing back to the wooden boxes within which the quilts were kept. 22

Corporeal Meeting Place

The Racialization of the Suburban Landscape [Advisors: Victor Tzen and Mark Robbins]

The suburbs were imagined in the 1950s as a landscape for White middle-class society. As an escape from the city, these new communities were intended to provide respite and escape from the density and dirt of our urban environments. Fast forward sixty years to today, and the reality of the suburbs have drastically shifted. No longer do they serve as home to predominantly white families, but rather they are emerging as destinations for our minority classes. And as suburban affordability rises, minorities are being drawn in at such a drastic rate that our suburbs are rapidly becoming majority minority. Importantly, these groups have different needs and realities, and for this reason, a reimagining of the idea of community within the suburbs is not only possible but necessary. Instead of constantly running away from one another, Whites and minorities can be presented with a reimagined suburban landscape which effectively meets the needs of both, without forcing either to give up their desire for privacy or separation. Choosing to create moments of strategized mixture allows for the recognition, and more importantly, the appreciation of this demographic shift, presenting the suburb as the hallmark of community and social sustainability. Rather than a wholesale abandoning of our suburbs in favor of urban cities, the creation of a small glitch can subtly tweak the suburbs to reinvigorate their image, rescuing them from the overbearing, 1950s clichĂŠ conceptions brought about through emergence of popular culture.

Peninsula Park Insertion Into Central Nou Barris [with Mark Shahlamian]

A series of fingers extend into the main water feature of Parc Central Nou Barris. The fingers serve as extensions of the level ground plane and undulate in section to create different zones of flooding depending on the water level in the reservoir. The fingers are inhabitable for pedestrians to walk over and play on; each one offers a different type of play. When the reservoir water level is low, they become shading devices for the people playing below. Each of the fingers is constructed of a number of layers including grass, fabric, soil, gravel, drainage, and support that combine into one, easily replaceable module. This module is repeated along the length of the finger creating a grid of planting beds that can, if necessary, be treated individually. In addition to the fingers, there are floating islands which are anchored to the bottom of the reservoir, becoming a platform for seating or recreation which glides across the water. There are also a series of tubes with holes punched into them, scattered across the site, serving as bird sanctuaries where they might land or nest.

AIDS Memorial Park Competition Lifting the Living Memorial [with Andrew Weigand and Mark Shahlamian]

AIDS, like many crises, was addressed through education and advocacy. By hosting an future outreach function, the memorial will bring together spaces not only for reflection, but also for living and education. Maintaining an educational role, the memorial park will serve many needs for the community - as a living, well used monument to personal struggles with AIDS. To better link living with remembrance and outreach, the park is fractured, allowing interaction between what might have been isolated activities. The intention is to remind visitors that while most memorials are commemorative toward an isolated event or moment in time, AIDS is an ongoing issue, and as such, part of memorializing the lives lost to the epidemic is to bring the spaces of living and remembering into conversation with one another. Lifting the park allows light to penetrate below, improving the outreach spaces. From below, three caissons for quiet contemplation support the park: A moment of remembrance amidst the activities of daily life. The lower level also holds spaces for exhibitions, meetings, and an office for a community organization.

Busan Opera House Competition FREE/Fernando Romero

[with Liz Kelsey, Yihyun Lim, Hayrettin Gunc, Ivana Stancic, Hector Romero, Andreia Teixeira, Romea Muryn]

The proposed design is conceived as a cloud perched upon Busan Bay. A unique and unexpected iconic presence, the cloud is composed of a filigree of prisms that gravitate lyrically around a stage core composed as a machine for the performing arts. The meticulous envelope evokes an harmonic musical assemblage with multiple and subtle variations in prisms that jointly compose an exquisite whole. The interior of the cloud houses a volume whose definition is driven by the optimal requirements for the performing arts and conforms a compact and efficient stage core. The key and most voluminous element is the Opera Hall, the sheer size and highly prescriptive requirements of which establishes the arrangement of all other programs. The Opera Hall is equipped with a capacity for a six-stage arrangement alongside fly-tower for ample flying system and substantial stage depth for extensive scenic flexibility. The Auditorium fulfils the seating capacity with both parterre and balcony areas. Above the backstage a Black box theater complements the main hall, this space is conceived as a blank canvas with the possibility to be arranged to be in a variety of configurations.

Camp Talooli Dining Hall Engaging Two Sides of a Dynamic Slope Winner: King and King Comprehensive Design Competition

[with Jody Chan]

Given the site for this dining hall, we immediately noticed the significance of its sloping topography as a hinge point between the daily activities in the lake below and those occurring on the field above. We attempted to create a conversation, establishing an interface between the camp’s two most essential gathering points. On approach, the building is relatively low, remaining at a scale welcoming to the children. But as you enter and proceed through, the floor steps down and the roof slopes up, opening the building to a large panoramic view of the lake. Both the horizontality of the north facade and constructed sequence down into the main dining space encourage the occupant to turn their body and experience these vast views. Similarly, the vertically proportioned glazing of the south facade enhances one’s awareness of the dense, tall forest that lays adjacent. The building is also conscious of passive and active environmental systems. The height change between north and south facades creates a pinching that draws cool wind coming from the lake inward and propels it out the south facade. Similarly, the clerestory window and topmost portion of the north facade are operable, allowing rising hot air to escape. The south facade and clerestory have also both been calibrated to solstice sun angles, allowing sunlight to adequately illuminate the dining hall during all months. Additionally, all structure is separate from glazing systems to prevent thermal bridging and insulation in the floor and roof have been increased to offset heat loss through the large facades during the winter months. Lastly, a series of geothermal coils in the lake utilize the water body as a source of constant temperature despite the vast temperature changes between summer and winter months.
