PIXILATING COLLECTIVE | DORMITORY SITE : DUMBO | BROOKLYN, NY CRITIC : MICHAEL CHEN (301) PARTNER : ANYA LEE This residential space for university students is an occupiable gradient, dividing the project into degrees of collectivity. The spectrum from individual territories to shared spaces is explored through relentlessly stepping surfaces, pixelating the entire project to accommodate circulation and occupation. Located by the Brooklyn waterfront, this dormitory takes into consideration the relationship to the water and utilizes solar exposure to break down the massing.

ARCHIVING VANDALISM | LIBRARY SITE :
CHINATOWN | MANHATTAN, NY CRITIC : SCOTT RUFF (202)
Surrounded by an urban landscape, this library serves as a public archive for graffiti; the grand bookcase is an archive for it as a writing system, as well as a gallery for it as art. The faceted glass and contrasting steel elements reference the bold geometries of graffiti. The reading rooms are located by this glazing, providing natural light and views of the city and neighboring street art. Adjacent buildings are used as mural wall spaces for visiting artists. These archives are linked to the subway system below, encouraging the vandalism of its underground levels in celebration of street art and its culture.

CORE Many of the columns are concealed within the bookcase structure. The columns are located at the center of the building, and serve as a structural core.
CANTILEVER The beams are supported by the adjacent wall and the structural core. The remainder of the beams cantilever over the bookcase to support the floor slabs.
ANCHOR The adjacent building will be lined with an additional wall, which serves as an anchor to the beams. This wall, combined with the core, creates the learning center’s main support system.

STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS 17
CORE | Display Bookcase
The basement stacks and orthogonal shelves of the central bookcase house a collection of books on writing systems around the world and throughout history. These collections encompass the origins of writing, and provide an in-depth understanding of various forms of writing, from more dated systems such as cuneiform, hieroglyphics, and calligraphy, to more modern expressions of language through varying scripts (alphabetic, logographic and syllabic, abjad, and abugida national and selected regional scripts), modern calligraphy, and graffiti. The bookcase angles outward toward the visitor and Chrystie street, creating a faceted form mirroring geometries in the glass facade. As the occupant circulates vertically through the library, they are enveloped by the angular shelf structure - this change in geometry becomes a gallery experience that features physical examples of the writing systems featured in the library. The bookcase becomes a surface for the writing systems, as they are presented to passing occupants.
OFFICES | MANAGEMENT Administration offices are located in the corner of the basement and ground floors

LOBBY The main entrance and lobby takes up the hallway on the East side of the ground floor.
PRIMARY CIRCULATION | These spaces are easily accessible, and frequently occupied; the outdoor book market plaza adjacent to the basement entrance, as well as the main hallway on the basement and ground floors are spaces that are utilized constantly. Reading rooms and the outdoor courtyard on the 3rd floor are also primary circulation spaces, as they are regularly accessed and are along the main circulation paths of the building.
SECONDARY CIRCULATION | Secondary circulation spaces are comprised of accessible moments that are less frequently occupied by visitors. Office spaces can be entered by visitors, but will predominantly be occupied by administrative workers. The auditorium would not be used as frequently as the browsing areas or reading rooms, and would be filled only for special events.
FIRE STAIR | RESTROOMS The fire stair extends vertically through the auditorium Restrooms are adjacent to the fire stair
TERTIARY CIRCULATION | The third level of circulation consists of spaces that are private or not available to the public - storage and mechanical space are private spaces only accessible to administrative workers. Although restrooms are accessible by all occupants of the building, they are also private spaces.
SITUATIONAL CIRCULATION | The fire stair is always occupiable, and can be used to circulate from the upper floorsâ€™ reading spaces to the outdoor courtyard or ground floor, but the stairs lining the central display are the primary means of circulating through the building. Fire stairs would be used situationally, for emergencies or as an alternative to the central staircases.

GRADIENT STUDY | KINDERGARTEN CRITIC :
SITE : STATEN ISLAND, NY EVA PEREZ DE VEGA (201)
Nestled on a hillside by Staten Islandâ€™s waterfront, this project is an engaging and immersive experience for young children. Elements drew inspiration from the properties of water, and its gradient of stages that blur the boundaries between ice, water, and gas. The sloped landscape provides an interesting opportunity for excavating into the site, as well as a challenging design prompt for landscape design. This kindergarten optimizes natural lighting with an inviting eyelet canopy and roof garden, with ample skylights, outdoor classrooms, and play spaces.

By studying the conceptual development of various projects, new experimental drawings are created. These series of works evaluate architectural drawings and reinterpret them with new overarching ideas and means of representation. BELOW: NECKLACE RESIDENCE - REX

OBSERVATION OF THE UNAWARE | FOLLY SITE : BROOKLYN, NY CRITIC : OSTAP RUDAKEVYCH (102) This architectural folly is anchored onto the existing glass facade of Pratt Instituteâ€™s architecture building, Higgins Hall. Various massing strategies were explored, and the intention of this project is to connect the interior spaces of Higgins Hall to the spaces created by the folly. The folly was designed for two occupants - one inhabitant and one observer. As the two occupants circulate through the folly, they are able to catch glances of each other through the apertures, but are never able to directly interact. Only one occupant is able to see the other, while the other remains unaware of their presence.
