SITE ANALYSIS PROJECT 1: LANDSCAPE TO HOUSE This project shows the development of a site from landscape to a place of habitation. Initially a group of sites were given, and upon choosing an individual site, I created an analysis map of the site. After analyzing the site a study model was created based on certain patterns within the analysis map (I focused on sun and wind paths of my site). This was eventually developed into a house, that contained and was surrounded by various textures. The textures shown (in the plan drawings) were specifically chosen and are: - Water - Trees - Grass/ Planting - Gravel - Concrete - Wood

Map 1 - Analysis of the group of sites given.

Map 2 - Analysis of my personal site chosen within the overall site.

To create the study model, I lifted and folded consecutive squares containing the sun path, and lifted areas with wind paths.


ANALYSIS DRAWINGS, SITE PLAN Additional drawings were done to show boundaries, movement and structure of the final model.

SITE PLAN PROJECT: MIXED-USE URBAN CENTER AT BRICKELL (PARTNERED) Location: City block situated at South Miami Avenue and Brickell Plaza Metrorail Station, between SW 8th Street and SW 7th Street. Project: Design a mixed-use high- rise building to encompass retail, commercial/ office and residential units. Construction Areas: Retail _ 82, 836 sq ft Commercial _ 165,672 sq ft Residential _ 952,842 sq ft

1ST FLOOR PLAN, ELEVATIONS Program:

Retail = Ground Level - Level 3 Commercial = Levels 4 - 9 Residential = Levels 10 - 32

(North Towers = Levels 10 - 24 South Towers = Levels 10 - 32) Amenities = Parking Garage (Eastern Side of Levels 1-9) Gym (10th Floor) Pool (10th Floor/ Above Parking Garage)

CONCEPTUAL DESCRIPTION: A mixed-use urban center was created with the conceptual idea of shearing volumes that express movement. On the residential towers, this shearing occurs from side to side while in the retail spaces this moviment is shown by the push and pull effect of the modules. Residential Data: efficiency _ 33 units one bedroom _ 54 units two bedroms _ 278 units three bedrooms _ 95 units Total Number of Units _ 460 units

SITE ANALYSIS

PROJECT: CHINATOWN MIAMI The following information was given in preparation for the project: “Miami’s strategic location as a main trade route to Latin American countries has generated speculation for an Asian economic trade and tourist zone in the city... The objective of the studio is to propose urban design/architectural solutions that incorporate existing ecological, site specific and climatic conditions, while advocating sustainable development dedicated to trade and business with Asia. The site is located at the confluence of various travel and trade infrastructures; east of Miami International Airport within the Melrose neighborhood, bisected by The Miami River and the Miami Canal and near the developing Miami Intermodal Center, a regional transportation hub. 19

SITE ANALYSIS

PROJECT: MIXED-USE HOUSING The following information was provided in preparation of the project: “The design district of North Miami is a nascent urban center. It has an urban feel despite its low density and insubstantial building stock... To continue this urban ambition, a multi-story mixeduse live work project is proposed. This district must have a mix of retail, residential, office and service uses to reach its urban potential. The site for this project is a 60’-0”x86’-0” single story former automobile maintenance garage across from Oak Plaza. The existing building is to be removed. This project is for five personalities and their artifacts: an Architect, Collector, Fashion Designer, Archeologist, and Historian. 23

ABSTRACT CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE IN THE BAHAMAS VIEWED THROUGH THE LENS OF CRITICAL REGIONALISM Critical Regionalism is a term that came about during the early 1980’s. It deals with designing architecture based on specific and unique characteristics of a region including geographical, economical, and cultural conditions. It does not simply stick to traditional means of design, or copy what exists in the region, but learns from it and reapplies it in a contemporary or up to date manner. This paper looks at these conditions in The Bahamas, and explores a critical regionalist approach for architecture in The Bahamas moving forward. Literary research was done on authorities of critical regionalism. In 1981 Alexander Tzonis and Liane Lefaivre introduced the term. Although there may be variations between different authors’ ideas, key concepts remain the same – avoiding homogeneous designs worldwide, and creating architecture best suited for its location. Further research included traveling to islands within the country, conducting interviews with architects and artists, and examination of hypothesis forming surveys. Based on this, the initial assertion for this paper – that there is a lack of contemporary architecture in The Bahamas – was further substantiated. Due to the large tourism industry, developments within the country put primary focus on appealing to tourists with secondary emphasis placed on the community. This should be reversed. Additionally, design of a building should not simply be about aesthetics but take into consideration the comfort of its users. This can best be achieved by understanding and responding to the region and its culture, while applying contemporary methods such as modern building techniques and materials.
