Open Space East NY

East New York Open Space System Instructor - Ken Smith Option Studio Fall 2015

The Brooklyn Neighborhood of East New York is facing substantial redevelopment due to market gentrification and public policies aimed at increasing the City’s supply of affordable and mixed housing. A public park serves as a scaffold for mass interpretive use while bridging a community divided by the imposing barriers of aging infrastructure. An existing overhead rail trellis serves as the backbone of this urban open forum.

Meadowlands

Meadowlands: Reviving Franklin Park Instructors: Jill Desimini, Anita Berizbeitia Core Studio II - Spring 2014

Only a century ago the forest of New England was feared to be irrecoverably overwhelmed by the agrarian landscape. Now the meadow and pasture have become increasingly removed from the ecological and cultural vernacular. This arc of environmental change is encapsulated nowhere better than Frederick Law Olmstead’s Franklin Park. Originally intended to afford far-reaching vistas of pastoral fields, Franklin Park is now dominated by canopy. Meadowlands proposes a reintegration of grassland habitat as a microcosm of our agrarian heritage.

Surface+Edge - Indeterminacy

Surface + Edge: Indeterminacy Instructors - Zaneta Hong with Gary Hilderbrand Core Studio I Fall 2013

Addressing issues of urban pattern, occupation, and temporality, this project imagines an urban plaza on the Boston waterfront. Tidal patterns create a dynamic topology to unite the urban and litoral experience. Initial formal investigations are derived from Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Urban Atoll


Reed, Mah

Urban Atoll Instructors - Chris Reed, David Mah Collaborator - Daniel Widis Core IV Studio Spring 2015

With the loosening of traditional spatial relationships between work and home and the rise of an increasingly nomadic creative class, there is a generational tension to live “off-the grid� but not completely disconnected from amenities of modern living; a desire to be accessible to nature, yet not anti-modern. Centered around the creation of new marshland in Jamaica Bay, the project posits a future disconnected from the metropolitan, yet still undeniably urban.

Models of Collective Space Hydroculture for the Extended Metropolis

Models of Collective Space for the Extended Metropolis Jakarta, Indonesia Instructors: Felipe Correa Collaborators: Michael Keller On the island of Java, variable climate encounterrs the fixed condition of topography, giving Jakarta a unique level of precipitation and a year-long river flow. This macroscopic topographic condition interfaces with the micro-undulations of the low deltic floodplain that is the foundation of Jakarta. Variables between water level and infrastructure yield formal differentiation of the urban fabric. Through coordination of future improvements in water and mobility infrastructures, potentials to increase redundancies in both the movement of water and people are necessary to address pressures of growth and climatic variability

Infrastructural Ecologies

Infrastructural Ecologies: Coastal Pathways of Waste West Falmouth Harbor, Cape Cod Instructors: Pierre Belanger, Rosetta Elkin Partners - Elise Bluell, Maria Arroyo Core Studio Fall 2014 Coastal wastewater treatment facilities are critical infrastructures particularly vulnerable to the impact of sea level rise. Current best-practices for waste disposal and nutrient treatment are unequpied for rising groundwater and increased salinity. An equally vital infrastructural network of saltwater wetlands is also affected by rising water levels as endemic species lack effective strategies for sediment accretion. This project retools the treatment wetland through a novel ecotone of grass and reed species to accomodate nutrient loads and accelerate sediment accretion rates to match the pace of sealevel rise.

Waller Creek Framework Plan

Waller Creek Corridor Framework Plan Austin, TX - 2014 Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates Gullivar Shephard, Danielle Choi, Evan Blondell, Katherine Liss

Waller Creek is the center of an urban renewal connecting key public spaces in Austin’s growing downtown. Andrew negotiated MVVA’s new trail allignment with the interests of contiguous private developers. Work ranged from rendered plans, elevation studies, rendered perspectives, and a sectional analysis of the riverbed.

St. Anne’s Warehouse

St. Anne’s Warehouse New York, NY 2015 Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates Alec Spangler, Michael Van Valkenburgh

St. Anne’s Warehouse Courtyard provides an interface for the public theater’s connection with the larger network of Brooklyn Bridge Park. Evoking a cloistered garden while providing the flexibility and capacity of a plaza, an austere extrusion of re-used slate providesgroup seating among the orderly dissaray of the groundplane. Andrew contributed to modeling and design direction for paving and site furnishing.

Saw Mill River Restoration

Saw Mill River Restoration Yonkers, NY Groundwork Hudson Valley, Yonkers Planning Department 2010-2013

The Saw Mill River is a tributary of the Hudson River with its confluence in downtown Yonkers, NY. Due to health concerns from industrial pollution the river was sealed off in an underground concrete flume in the 1920s. Nearly a century later, the river was uncovered and its banks transformed into a public park. Andrew coordinated water quality testing, fish species census, and habitat restoration works throughout the watershed. He also documented the transformation and significance of the river in a series of interpretive signs and wayfinding maps placed throughout the park.
