BOATHOUSE:

The Columbia Boathouse is rooted in high tide. We created a new datum line using high tide as the new ground plane. Relationships relative to the ground plane were created for each program to create ethereal experiences. The administrative wing is open to the sky and flush with the ground. The boatshed opens right to the dock or directly into the water at high tide. The lobby is the connection between the urban and natural landscapes. Rowers train under a wading pool to naturally cool the space. The lounge sits above the water, open below and closed on the sides to isolate the specific views. This comprehensive studio also taught us the use of passive and active systems.

EXTERIOR RENDER FROM MARS

PROJECT:

With high hopes to reach Mars in the coming years, NASA challenged Pratt to design a humancentric transit habitat for astronauts in deep space. As a midway point for astronauts between Earth and Mars, the transit habitat will assist astronauts in their transition between zero-gravity and earth’s gravity. The habitat must take into consideration important factors, such as radiation protection, the human condition and logistics. By challenging architects to design for space, NASA hopes to be able to utilize ideas from designs that put more consideration for the human body and mind in space.

TRANS-X:

HYDROPONICS RENDER

Trans-X Space Station will serve as the deep space transit hub and refuel station for future deep space missions. Located between Phobos and Mars, the deep space transit hub will use the radiation protection from Phobos’ path, in addition to utilizing crystals as an exterior shell. Growing Quartz crystals on the exterior allows maximum radiation protection, creating a hard, exterior shell. This allows the interior to be made of lighter, softer materials that are flat-packed with the crew. Utilizing a centrifugal force to spin the deep space transit hub, the crew will be exposed to gradual increases in gravity as they move from the core to the outer rings.

SEVEN DEADLY SINS

ARCHITECTURE

PARTNER: Xylena Desquitado PROFESSOR: Lawrence Zeroth

SPINA:

The procession of the Spina is through the lens of the seven deadly sins, which were categorized into three zones based off of Dante’s Purgatory. In the first zone, Excessive Love, the visitor is confronted with hyperstimulation tempting impulsive buys for quick pleasure. As the visitor moves through the site, the mass begins to break down into more sitting areas and an underground museum reflecting Defficient Love. The final zone is Perverted Love directed at harm towards other where the insertions are desctructive towards the existing buildings. Our final insertion is a big black box at the end of the Spina right in front of St. Peter’s that represents the ultimate sin, Pride. In order to reach St. Peter’s, the visitor must enter the box and to feel Humility, the corresponding sin. Entering a baptismal experience, the visitor enters St. Peter’s cleansed and reborn.

ARCHITECTURE

A NEW ARCHITECTURE:

By the year 2100, machine, man and nature will be indistinguishable, as architecture and technology will have become increasingly organic. The rising populations of the world will threaten rural lands, creating a need for more natural architecture as cities expand. New York City’s residential population will reach a limit of 2.3 million, which grows almost 5 million in the day due to the influx of commuters and visitors; however, due to Manhattan’s existing condition as a fixed boundary, it will resist the urban sprawl and continue to grow upwards. We imagine New York City’s urbanism will begin to be overtaken by nature. Our project is a living architecture that will grow into the urban fabric and connect humans to the city. It questions the existing notion of dead building systems and how a living architecture could exist within the future urban fabric. The Living Machine is a transit hub built using new materials and biotechnologies of bacteria, flesh and vegetation, and is located at a threshold into Manhattan at and around the existing infrastructure of the Lincoln Tunnel. The Lincoln Tunnel has one of the highest volumes of traffic and directly feeds into Midtown, which sees the highest population influx in the day. In our future, we see the surrounding area and the city as growing even taller in order to adjust to the rising population and condition as an island. We are proposing this new typology that will also be deployed at other transit points into and out of the city. The threshold is as a buffer zone into Manhattan and will act as a connective armature between human, machine, and nature, as these become indistinguishable from one another.

Alan M. Berger, a landscape architecture and urban design professor at MIT speculates that suburbs will continue to grow as the world’s population increases, becoming something comparable to small cities. Rural land is expected to shrink by 30%, threatening our food and oxygen supplies in 2040; therefore, it is imperative that building materials become more organic, and that we begin to introduce materials composed of vegetation and flesh, allowing us to maintain sufficient rural land as cities and suburbs to expand into rather than imposing upon the natural world. Organic building materials allow urban sprawl to grow into nature. Rethinking dead materials used today and applying known tectonic ideas to organic materials, the project employs a skin-structure system in whichthe vegetation/flesh skin wraps around and through the skeletal structure, growing with the expansion and contraction of the transit flux.
