1 Preliminary study model with mall overlay

Online shopping led to decline of the suburban mall. As a corollary to the rise of the modern highway system the analog mall typology emerged. The development of the box store further lead to the requirement of distribution centers, also dependent on the highway system. Both architectural objects are designed for site-less conditions. Highways produce junkspace that is inevitably created by its efficient design. While the need for physical interaction of merchandise remains, the traditional mall typology requires a new customer-product interface to combat the digital revolution. In creating a physical location for an online shopping center, a new interface is designed that allows for the seamless interaction between customer, merchandise, and distribution system. How can you combine the driver and object of sprawl to create something that is neither, where one creates a site but has no object and one is an object without a site? The product of sprawl is the typology of the American shopping mall. The driver of sprawl is the highway system because it allows for the easy transport of people into the city center for work. More specifically, the site is created by the inefficiency created by an overly efficient design of the highway system, or the junkspace within a highway interchange. The highway becomes the mold to create the site of junkspace.

In this model, the existing highway, ground relationships are still represented. Locations where the highway rests directly on the ground are left void, whereas the locations of an elevated highway overpass are still represented with rockite because the space beneath is still available for use. This scheme still places importance on the already existing groundscape.

If the program was split preferencing the fulfillment center functions, then the truck traffic would have priority of access on the perimeter of the building structure. The shipping stage of the fulfillment center is no longer required because of the direct interaction with the customers, who occupy the center corridor of the building.

If the program is split so that the customer traffic takes precedent over the perimeter of the building, then the internal circulation of the building is reserved for the deliver of merchandise from trucks. Once again all interaction between customer and product occurs between the picking program of the fulfillment center and the customer interface.

1 Map of the Two Koreas Site is Located within the Circle

This studio looked into the delicate interaction between North and South Korea and the potential of a hypothetical increased interaction between the two countries based on their shared ecology. Currently the peninsula is divided in two by the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), a heavily patrolled and mined region of 2km on either side of the official border of the two countries. Once the border line hits the Han River Estuary, in the west of either country, the line becomes blurred because of the wording of the 1953 Armistice agreement, which states that the width of the river will become the border line and no DMZ zone will exist. The width of the river also theoretically becomes a neutral zone, freely accessible by either country (although this does not happen in practice). Our project also incorporated the large tidal differences that are visible in the region to produce an architecture whose accessibility changes with the tides. When it is high tide, the other country will be able to access the joint meeting rooms, however in low tide, the country, whose border the building straddles, is given sole control over the building and it’s program.

Large Scale Site Plan Han River Estuary Field condition of both the balloon probes online and the water probes in the water mimic the on-land rice fields. Clam cultures ring the partially exposed sand banks in the center.


Within the estuary, monitoring devices will be deployed both on land and within the estuary waters. Water probes monitor runoff pollution levels from both South and North Korea. Weather balloons as well as ground water probes monitor the ecology of the surrounding land. The balloon probes assess the local weather pollution that comes from Seoul and Asian Brown Cloud (ABC) effect, while the land probes measure the heavy metal content of the soil, which is a major pollutant from abandoned coal mines.

Agriculture practices are monitored through a joint program which emphasizes sustainable agriculture through education. This sustainable agricultural zone is defined by an 2 km offset in North Korea and the existing Civilian Control Line in South Korea. Further cooperation is developed in the creation of a clam culture system situated in the center of the estuary on a sandbar in the intertidal zone.

ROME O PTION S TUDIO PROFESSORS : CLAUDIA CLAMENTE FRANCISCO ISODORI SPRING 2011 - ARCH 402

This project is sited outside the traditional city walls of Rome, in a neighborhood that was created without planning and thus has developed as sprawl without a clear center. As an arts cultural center for Rome, the various “islands” create nodes of centers in an otherwise unused stretch of land to bring residents and tourists to the historic cinematic site of Cinecittà, located adjacently to the site. The various nodes have different functions that correspond to their location within the green space and also to the surrounding program that exists in the urban fabric. Their forms are created based on their relative private or public space. 1 Detailed Site Plan of the Central Museum Building

The central “island” was then developed further with massing and access studies. It’s program is that of a museum because of its close proximity to Cinecittà and includes direct circulation to the film studios. This project was done during my semester in Rome as part of the Cornell College of Architecture, Art, and Planning semester in Rome program.

This project started as a case study research project concerning the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean and in particular the reconstruction efforts in one of the hardest hit locations on the eastern coast of Sri Lanka. It evolved into a dual shelter and multi-religious community space to house the residents of the uniquely multi-religious town of Kalmunai, one of the hardest to be hit by the waves. Local building materials and methods were explored to create a building that could easily be built and managed by the native population.

This project was done during my semester in New York City as part of the Cornell College of Architecture, Art, and Planning semester in New York City program under the study of guest professor Shiguru Ban.

1

The assignment was to analyze and build a structural model of a recent architectural building. This model is of a cable way station in St. Anton am Arlberg, designed by driendl*architects. In the model we focused on the main structural roof system, which incorporated various trusses and cable systems with the goal to maintain a light feeling structure. The internal structure, supporting the cable wheels and the cable car, was made of frosted plexiglas as part of a separate structural system.

1 View from Top of the Model

The top roof system was modeled in various thickness of piano wire and soldered together and the base was poured using Rockite.

This project integrated multiple classes in a very thorough design of a gym, located in downtown Ithaca on a currently empty lot. The gym was meant for the community as well as a local small school. A passageway “agora� through the building connects two major streets on either side of the gym in addition to an exterior walkway on the side of the building.

1 Sectional Model

Key issues addressed in the project were ideas of environmental systems, as seen in ideas shown in wall sections and air circulation, as well as structure. The assigned structural material to be explored was wood.

This installation was located in Rand Hall, the architecture studio space on campus (the only one at the time). It looked at the information and assumptions gathered and stored by people based on the known of the familiar.

1 Student Walking through the First Landing Installation Extended End cap

I took a space that is well known and traveled by its occupants and made slight adjustments to the known in order to determine if people would recognize and act around a small change to their environment. In particular it played on aspects of touch and touchability. By altering the end posts of the stairwell, as something that most occupants typically automatically touch as they round the corner of the stair landing. Most people did not notice by visually seeing the change, but rather by touching an object they though was familiar and then noticing the change.

This project created a unique opportunity of designing a double house for a couple, who are divorced, yet still live together because of a shared element. In this case, the couple shared the environment around them. Sited on Cayuga Lake, the house makes use of chimneys for heat and water collection for cooling, each element is collected by one member of the couple and shared by both.

1 Massing Model of the House

The idea of sharing originated with an initial study of interaction between two dis alike objects of fire and ice. A cast of ice was created, which incorporated a indentation for the placement of sterno, a flammable jelly. When the sterno was lit on fire, the heat from the fire melts the ice around it, eventually resulting in a pool of water, which then extinguishes the flame.

The hotel evolved conceptually as a floating mass that rests on a protrusion of the earth. The mass’ shape originated from the dimensions of the site, flipped, and stretched to prioritize the views and accommodate the required number of rooms. The punch from the ground creates a void that is maintained from the roof down to the lower programmatic elements, resulting in a shallow reflecting pool. The skin of the building is channel glass oriented horizontally, which results in a glowing object at night, re-emphasizing the geometric mass within the site.

1 Final Model of the Hotel out if its Site

The program is split between three elements. The public is able to freely walk through the main lobby space as an extension of the Ithaca Commons, the public thoroughfare adjacent to the site. The lower floors function as a public bathhouse, while the upper floors are the private hotel floors. The roof floor is the public restaurant space.

These projects show some of the various tasks that I have preformed at my previous internships. They range from a self-designed intern project while I was working for KMD to both physical and digital 3D models. While at KMD, the interns were encouraged to create a urban project along the San Francisco waterfront addressing the needs of San Francisco. My project was to create a bicycle storage garage and public transportation center.
