Thesis Project - Spring 2014 Paris-sites

ARCHITECTURE

“He is the passionate spectator, it is an immense joy to set up house in the heart of the multitude, amid the ebb and flow of movement, in the midst of the fugitive and the infinite... a kaleidoscope gifted with consciousness, responding to each one of its movements and reproducing the multiplicity of life and the flickering grace of all the elements of life”

PARIS-ITES LOCATIONS

- Charles Baudelaire describing Le Flaneur: These observation pods for the urban explorer provide him with a discreet insight into the everyday narrative of the city. These pods are currently located on four different facades throughout the city, the buildings providing a great range of architetcural styles, program and vues. The pods are parasidic in nature which signifies that they must adapt their structure’s shape and general orientation to accomodate the different sites. They are not limited only to building facades and in fact would want to spread through the city, latching onto bridges, monuments, fountains...

ARCHITECTURE - EDUCATIONAL

USC Global Architecture Brigades took part in a design competition for a primary school in the small community of Santa Rosa in Honduras. We went to Honduras in January 2011 to start construction on the chosen design. It was extremely valuable hands on construction experience that cannot be taught in school. As a student, being a part of a project that actually gets built and helps a community is a rare opportunity.

Completed - March 2016 CWa was comissioned to design the North American HQ for global advertising agency, Publicis. This 190,000 SF project spans eight stories and unites in one place three of Publicis’ offices scattered around Manhattan. Followed the project from concept to design development and assisted on furniture & finish specifications.

Work samples from Clive Wilkinson Architects Campus Refresh Concept - Pacific Northwest

Conceptual development of a new type of technology company campus that applies concepts of connectivity and destinations from the micro scale to the macro to unify a disconnected and isolated work environment. Three different schematic approaches were initially developped to attempt to adress the main problems facing the current campus. A final hybrid scheme was chosen for further development.

SCHEME A - URBAN CAMPUS

SCHEME B - ONE BUILDING

FINAL SCHEME - PROGRESSIVE HYBRID

SCHEME C - THE MOUNDS

The following is a research study which takes a deep look at the client’s current workspace. It led CWa to develop ten new building typologies to integrate into their campus that would help not only optimize office real estate but also encourage transparency and cross pollination between departments

RESEARCH & FABRICATION

Research Studio: Fall 2012 Swarm Architectures


Swarm behavior: - “A collective behavior exhibited by animals of similar size which aggregate together, migrating in some direction.” [wikipedia] - “It is an emergent behavior arising from simple rules that are followed by individuals and does not involve any central coordination.” [wikipedia]

Swarm code is based on: + Cohesion: agent moves close to its neighbors + Separation: agent maintains a certain distance from neighbor +Alignment: agents move along a similar path

RESEARCH & FABRICATION

This project was done as a part of Undergraduate Architecture Student Council which works on a design for PARK(ing) Day every year. PARK(ing) day is a national event where architects and designers take over a parking spot as a way to make a statement about cars. This year we built a canopy made with donated cardboard tubes which were attached by nothing but binder clips. The idea behind the project was to rethink the idea of public gathering space in Los Angeles. Because of the heat in early September, we decided to make a canope installation that would allow visitors to gather in the shade.

PARK(ing) Day - September 2012
