Miami Heimat Harvard GSD Fall 2016 Option Studio Advised by Inaki Abalos The site of transplants from one continent to another - economic, social, political Miami forewarns the coming sea level rise that threatens all coastal agglomerations. Into this city of artificial constructs and continental tensions enters this particular mixed use building - a vessel that collects programs hitherto bound within the generic interiority of the Miami mixed use and sets them into an iconic form confronting the city from its bay. Comprising a financial exchange, child immigrant facility, and a plastic surgery clinic, the building collages Miami’s economic centrality, its celebration of the body perfect, and its burgeoning role as the gateway of illegal immigration into a tense architectural confrontation. Adopting an nautical form befitting its immediate context, the building utilizes geometric juxtapositions to craft two major public sequences - one interior and the other exterior - that weave their way through the three major programmatic blocks.

Miami’s twins pressures of a rising sea level and increasing immigration from Central America shapes the program and form of the project. Sited on Watson Island in Biscayne Bay, the project confronts the wall of gleaming skyscrapers that defines the Miami skyline.

The thermodynamic properties of each programmatic ‘room’ informs their location within the project, as heat sources are cooled by natural ventilation and buoyancy while heat sinks are distributed to optimize daylighting and socio-cultural juxtapositions.

The Cloisters Harvard GSD Fall 2014 Core I Advised by Kiel Moe The American college dormitory is the crucible of youth, where social networks develop organically around the rhythm of the communal everyday. This project deals with such a space: A dorm crafted from the reciprocity of a given facade 960’ long and a central stairwell. The interstitial space between houses the gamut of the college experience: Dorms, as required by the brief, and a circulation sequence wrapped around social/innovation spaces punctured by atria letting light into the living spaces. A range of circulation options host activities ranging from the raucous to the quiet. The myriad social networks of the college experience are thus given eclectic physical form.

Love Hotel Harvard GSD Fall 2015 Core III Advised by Renata Sentkiecwz A non-space, the modern Hotel is a foreign presence in the city of Sapporo, itself a piece of fiction steeped in Japan’s fascination with the West. Climatically tuned to global standards and giving denizens no reason to enter its space, the Hotel is an alien in the city center. By introducing the most verncular of conditions - thermal baths channeling both Hokkaido’s geothermal potential and the Japanese love hotel typology - deep into its core, the Hotel now assumes a civic character. The intimate spas mediate the private, international hotel rooms with the public, local programs of gallery, theater, and greenhouse, fusing the non-space into Sapporo’s urban fabric.

Readymade Brooklyn Harvard GSD Spring 2017 Option Studio Advised by Preston Scott Cohen Since Duchamp’s debut of the Fountain in 1917, the Readymade’s storied past has largely been the province of the art world. Design’s occupation with the Readymade is far more tenuous - to what degree could one utilize the intrinsic performances of the Readymade? On an architectural scale, functions hitherto accorded to the found object do not translate to a comparable affect. One has to get to the original geometry. The oloid, formed by two congruent circles locked in perpendicular planes, has the unique geometric property of tracing its own form as it rolls perpetually. This is a school sited in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Comprising co-located charter pre-school, elementary, and high schools in one complex, the school specializes in biological sciences and caters to the children of new immigrants in Community Board District 1. Located within the two oloids are greenhouses harboring plants from all round the world.

Readymade Brooklyn was informed in part by an earlier project - my solo entry to the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Center for Architecture and Design Education (CADE) competition of 2015. The design deploys three strategies to introduce real world applications to high school education: 1) Learning by Delivery Both high school and after-school pedagogies will be based on project delivery, where students manage and participate in real world projects with citizens and officials.

School

2) Sandbox Each space is designed not around a packaged identity - ‘classroom’ - but is based on activities and usage frequency. Major programs rise through a sandbox of flexible platforms connected by flow spaces that host public reviews, brainstorming sessions, and lectures. 3) Adaptive Reuse The building integrates new spaces into an existing tower: its structure, space, and skin becomes a live demonstration of how we shape the built environment and vice versa.

Copious Diaspora Harvard GSD Fall 2017 Thesis Advised by Andrew Holder The LACMA, an anonymous icon, needs new homes in each of Los Angeles’s four ecologies—the Foothills, Plains of Id, Autopia, and Sufurbia—40 years removed from Banham, yet still relevant in their urban taxonomy. These four copies of the LACMA are anachronic: there is no unique original, and precedence does not confer superiority. Rather, each anachronic copy recreates a different LACMA that is stable in ontology but morphologically disparate. The modern souvenir—baubles, fridge magnets, piggy banks, and keychains that copy cities into their a priori shapes—yields the visual, geometric, and material transformations necessary to realize these anachronic copies. Ensconced in their new homes, the efficacy of the four LACMAs will be assessed by their performance in program vis-à-vis their respective ecologies—as externalities.
