Architecture is man’s control of natural forces in his environment -- weather, light, gravity -- to encapsulate space. Learning to control these forces is the foundation of the continual education of an architect. Every project provides a new opportunity to explore the interaction of design on science, on art, on society. Detailed here are the products of an architect in training as he gains knowledge in the theory and practice of architecture.

GREENGROCER[808]


7

The supermarket exists as architectural hinterland, a realm that has been designed to the point of efficiency. The exercise of the architecturalized grocery store brings about new thought dealing with the true utility of the supermarket. Greengrocer[808] functions as a modern-day agora, fusing the American supermarket with the bazaar and farmer’s market of developing countries. This is the new grocery store.

These diagrams detail the architecture of the enclosed agora. The space features a central open bazaar that is organized and striated to fit standard grocery store programming, primarily on its side. This fuses both programs, giving the bazaar floor to local merchants and shopkeepers.

CROSSSCAPE


19

No study of Houston’s hydrology would be complete without the design of a hydraulic landscape. The function of the designed landscape in Houston’s medical center would be to collect runoff from a nearby parking lot and naturally purify the water to return into the bayou system. The retention system, with detention ponds and friction based purification channels, would also serve as a public gathering space for the people.

BAYOUSCAPE


31

With the practicum of landscape architecture under the young architect’s belt, one can tackle the concept of a bayouside park. This 11-acre project, repurposing an old train yard for a new urban park and bayou research center, features the fusion of landscape urbanism and modern architecture, a space useful for all who live in this northern Houston neighborhood and all Houstonians who wish to visit.

MIKROKOSMOS


41

A unique architectural project -- the prison -- required a unique architectural solution: the microcosm. In order to place prisoners within the city and rehabilitate them successfully, the standard model of a prison cannot work. Studying the functioning of a city to shrink society into the size of a city block was key to generating a utilitarian prison that reflected the real world.

ARBOLEDA MASTER PLAN RESTAURANT


55

The Arboleda Master Plan is a project undertaken during a yearlong preceptorship at Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. Focusing on a specific part of the Monterrey-based master plan project, the Silica Restaurant Island is a feature piece in the design. The building combines two restaurants into a symmetrical unified space. The restaurant complex itself is situated in the center of the large masterplan project and features a detailed window system that uses a randomized slatting system.

THE CORNER HOTEL


67

The development of the Corner seeks to produce a new form of user interaction in a much-traversed intersection of Houston. Taking advantage of the location and the activity already present, the articulation of the public space — the development of the corner — is an imposition of a new phenomenon missing in Houstonian urbanism. The public space seeks to produce a new culture of leisure and pedestrianism in the affluent River Oaks area. The space can function as an agora, a spectacle, a market. The flexibility of this space allows the hotel to be more than an architectural icon in its location, the Corner can become an experience for locals and travellers alike.


68

The public corner space can function adequately for: Concerts for local and touring musicians Regular farmers markets for the locals Car Art Sculpture plaza Local Wine Tasting events Eating, dining, and coffee for locals and guests alike

WORKSHOP HOUSTON


79 Workshop Houston began as the Third Ward Community Bike Shop in 2003 and continues as an important Houston outreach, combining hands-on bike repair and youth programming. In recent years,Workshop Houston (WH) programs have extended to numerous after-school and summer workshops and academic enrichment. In expanding the opportunities, renovation and expansion of the current facility is required. Phase One includes the Style Shop (fashion and graphic design) and the Beat Shop (writing and recording music), and future phases will include a Scholar Shop (tutoring and academic support) and spaces for the administration and the high school program.

9SQUARE


9-Square is designed as a modulating landscape that functions as a bench while at the same time physically reflecting information pertinent to the Rice student body. As the availability of study rooms change on an hourly basis, 9-Square receives this information from the publicly available online database showing the reservation periods of the 36 study rooms in Rice’s Fondren library. This information is then abstracted into nine blocs of four study rooms each and physically represented by nine 2’x2’ squares made of 1/2”-thick acrylic panels arrayed in a 3’x3’ grid.

MEDICAID FOR ALL*

One of the main provisions of the Affordable Care Act is the federally sponsored Medicaid Expansion, giving coverage to Americans in states opting into the expansion earning 138% of the poverty level. The expansion for each state will be paid for mostly by the federal government, 100% through 2016, and 90% by 2020. States that opted out of the expansion, however, will not only miss out on covering much of their uninsured, but will have their citizens paying into the system without seeing the benefit themselves. Below is a map of states opting out of or undecided about the Medicaid Expansion and the per capita loss of federal funds they will see in 2022 as their citizens pay for other states. Note: Data is calculated assuming all other states participate in Medicaid expansion with funding raised through federal revenue collection of personal income. Net loss accounts for new federal spending for those currently eligible for Medicaid who newly enroll.
