Art Gallery Ann Arbor, MI The project is an art gallery housing the works of the op-artist Bridget Riley, with additional space for traveling exhibitions. The exterior is clad in perforated steel and frosted glass, allowing for diffuse and scattered light effects. The program intertwines public and private spaces, with a series of main galleries that offer a voyerusitic look into another, while requiring circulation to the temporary exhibition spaces to access the next level. This temporary spatial dislocation is underscored by the visual connection, and allows for surprising and unplanned for moments.

PROCESS I began by analyzing the film Der Lauf der Dinge by Peter Fischli and David Weiss. The film has no narrative, only action, and no characters other than material. Instead, accumulation marks the passage of time in a space that is used and re-used. The camera obstructs the view of the room to mask this fact, while editing creates an illusion of continuity. I created an index of these material traces, and mapped out the entirety of the room in which the film took place.

Solar Saltworks Mumbai, India This proposal is set in the Sewri mudflats of Mumbai, India and consists of a series of stacked and cantilevered gravity-fed tanks that rely on a tidal pump to draw up the surrounding brine. Saltwater cascades down the structure, changing hues from green to pink to rust red as it passes through the various evaporation stages and increases in salinity. The clay-lined cement tanks are reinforced with bronze, which has greater resistance to saltwater corrosion than steel. During the monsoon season, the ponds fill with rainwater and can be used for aquaculture. Once the dry season begins, the tanks are re-lined with clay and prepared for the next cycle of salt production. The biological systems within each pond regulate the precipitation of calcium carbonate and other byproducts, while rhizomatic plants such as sunflowers and Indian mustard at its base filter out heavy metals in the water from the petroleum plant nearby. A teak wood path zigzags through the apparatus, offering visitors a view of the salt making process and casting patterned light and shadow underneath. Flamingoes stop by on their migratory path to graze on the brine shrimp, while visitors are free to gather salt at the base of the structure.

Mixed-Use Tower Detroit, MI This new tower verticalizes the concept of mixeduse, with the western half of the tower consisting of residential units, and the eastern side of commercial and office spaces, all under a single, soft facade. Each side is built using two separate structural systems, with the residential side prioritizing cost and the commercial side embracing technological spectacle. They are braced together by interconnected walkways and enclosed by a translucent rip-stop nylon that visually and systemically pulls these two elements together. Within this interstitial zone that is neither inside nor outside, commercial nor residential, exists a third, undefined and changing space. This “third tower” leaves room for strange groupings to manifest, where people meet by chance or discover something new. Our flexible approach is a strategy to generate variegated spaces that give rise to new and unusual combinations that create the magic of an urban condition.


DESIGNERS: CHRISTINA KIM, XIYAO HU, AND YUERU DENG


THE COMMERCIAL SIDE


SITE + CONTEXT The Midtown neighborhood is at the intersection of arts and higher education in Detroit, seeing the most growth in the creative industries. Higher density is possible in this area, with no height restrictions and direct access to the Q Line. Our mixed-use tower hopes to increase critical mass to promote entrepreneurial opportunities for the community.

We kept in mind the 20-minute neighborhood, including reducing transit time to basic services, to construct an accessible and vibrant urban scenario. The residential units on the western side are sited on West Grand Blvd., a tree-lined street facing the historic Fisher Building, while the mercantile half capitalizes on the commercial street of Woodward Ave.

STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS The residential tower uses shear walls placed at angles to one another to provide lateral bracing and support while creating differentiated units ranging from micro studios to multi-level three-bedroom homes arranged around skipstop corridors. The commercial side consists of sloping glass volumes surrounded by open floor plates supported by freestanding steel columns.

The tunnel formwork system of construction creates a cellular reinforced structure, the surfaces of which require minimal finishing while having excellent thermal and sound insulation properties, as well as 3-hour fire rating. The cast-in-place method reduces transportation costs and allows for flexibility of design decisions on site.

FACADE DETAILS The pleated facade provides a weatherproof barrier that operates on a lightweight aluminum frame, reducing the need for expensive coatings on the interior glazing. A system of pulleys gathers the fabric at different levels, both locally and systemically, increasing density and opacity at certain points, or loosening up at others to let in more light and air while maintaining overall homeostasis within the building. During summer, the facade functions as a shading device, and in the winter, it provides additional passive heat gain, similar to a greenhouse.

Residential Renovation Ann Arbor, MI Renovation of lobby and hallways for student lofts in downtown Ann Arbor, MI. This eight-story brick building shares its ground level with a popular sports bar and restaurant and sees its share of lively night life. Taking student culture into account, Synecdoche designed a simple yet striking ceiling piece made of white 3/16" steel rods suspended just out of reach in a dark gray alcove. The panels of pretensioned steel rods twist and overlap, changing shape as one walks through the long lobby, with directional lights casting patterned shadows throughout. Oversized graphic numbers across from the elevator landings clearly mark the floor level. Each level has a different line from Robert Frost's poem Nothing Gold Can Stay at the end of each hallway, adding a colorful touch that thematically connects the different levels together.

 LAIAD 2014

Museum of the Atom Livermore, CA The aim of this project was to discover a formal language using an element from the periodic table as a starting point, and developing it into a proto-architecture. I chose the element Iridium because of its use in the production of anti-matter. Anti-matter are particles that have the same mass but opposite charge of ordinary matter. I played with the idea of opposite languages to investigate the dualities of mass and void, and the spaces created through the intersection of different axes. The final building is a science museum located in sunny Livermore, CA. Its form progresses from planar to volumetric spaces. Clad in aluminum sheets, the surface reflects its surroundings, with its form dissolving into the landscape.


FORMAL LANGUAGE

To begin, I focused on the electron configuration of iridium. The electron’s mass is negligable compared to the nucleus, yet it determines the characteristics of each element depending on how it participates in chemical bonds. The orbital is not a specific shape but a distinct region of probability, and these areas are exclusive of one another.

FORM FINDING: PLANE

Next, I wanted to show the influence of the nucleus on the electrons. Each electron experiences a different amount of attraction to the nucleus depending on its distance from the nucleus and the amount of shielding from other electrons, which is known as the effective nuclear charge. The atom’s structure is inferred through its interactions.

FORM FINDING: MASS

Further expanding upon the dual nature of the atom, the electron has both particle and wave-like properties. Each orbital contains two electrons, yet the pair never collide due to opposite spins. A distinct pattern arises through this subtle shift. In addition, electrons exist as standing waves, and any overlap of orbitals results in destructive interference.

MUSEUM OF THE ATOM

The final structure progresses from planar extrusions to massings. Space is demarcated through the intersection of planes, from more open exterior settings to enclosed galleries. The glazing and lighting strategy follows a similar logic, derived by subtracting the form from itself along the z-axis.

EFFECT OF HEAT ON MOVEMENT

Material Studies: Thermoscopic Bimetals Using the thermostatic bimetal P675R (ASTM TM2), I undertook a series of experiments studying its kinetic behavior relative to change in temperature, manipulating the strips through bending, notching, and bracing. Subsequently, I designed an aggregate surface using these previous operations and documented its transformation with the application and removal of heat.

Material Studies: Hydro-Dipped Ceramic Tiles This was a collaboration betweeen Yueru Deng, Hao Li, and myself. Beginning with a CNC routed foam block, we designed a series of panots that could be tiled in multiple configurations. For proof of concept, we cast two ceramic tiles, which we then dipped into a pattern of orange and gray acrylic paints suspended in water for a psychedelic finish.
