SUTRO’S BATH 01
San Francisco, CA - USA Graduate School Project - Summer 2015 Area: 130,000 sqf Team: Claudia Aguado + Nora Gharib The project consisted on the design of a recreational building that includes Restaurants, Bars, Pool area, a Spa, and a Park component that was added additionally. The building was conceived as a space for relaxation and contemplation through the interaction with nature. The space is located underground with a direct connection to the historic Sutros’s bath site as well as the ocean. The use of light in different amounts controls the ambience of the space. Light uses a hierarchical concept, the higher the guest goes the more light that floods the room. The goal of the light is to touch the soul and finding a poetic connection between man and the space. Light controls the different experience of the spaces.

Integration of Courtyards to give the interior space a better quality
TROPICAL HOSPITAL Chihuahua, Mexico Graduate School Project - Spring 2016 Area: 350,000 sqf Team: Claudia Aguado + Nika Mirrafie
The project consisted on the design of a Hospital for the University of Chichuahua campus. The building was treated as a kit of part composed by the main volume (E.R, O.Rs, Public areas, etc), and by an Outpatient and an Inpatient tower. Due to the location, and the fact that no air conditoned were to be included, the used of perforated screens for a better ventilation was proposed. Also the incorporation of courtyards which work as a point of interaction between the public and the private, and helping separate the circulation in a less monotonous way. The couryards also help to bring natural air and light to the interior. 08

THE ROCK OF THE OCEAN - RESORT St. Georges, Grenada Graduate School Project - Individual Fall 2016 Area: 85,000 sqf The project consisted on the design of a luxurious resort composed by a total of 40 units, restaurants, fitness area, spa, and pool and beach area. The challenge on this project was the connectivity between buildings and the use of land due to the complexity in the topography. The main idea was to develop a resort that exploits the essence of the site, and under that reason bringing the building into the earth was proposed. Also, the intention was to let the architecture be a secondary subject and make the site itself be the main attraction. Internal hallways are underground with perforated gardens that allow to enhance the visitorsâ€™ senses and make them pay attention to the sound and the breeze of the ocean, and the light coming through.

up to15’ WATER FOG LIGHT
Individuals around the pool control the jets and lighting effects with their smart phone. They control the shape and dynamics of the spectacle by using their smart phone like a conductor’s baton.
up to15’ WATER
Step on ME
Individuals around the pool control the jets and lighting effects via triggers embedded in the pavers of the plaza.
up to15’ WATER -
Individuals around the pool control the jets and lighting effects with their body movement and gestures that are encoded for programmable response.Their actions effect shape, intensity and color.
THE BIO DISPLAY
Miami - USA Competition for Museum of Science - October 2015 Team: Dean El-Khoury, Prof. Chung, Prof. Park, Prof. Vasconez, Nika Mirrafie, and Claudia Aguado This project consist on the use of algae as a BioFuel capable of creating imagenery that at the same time interacts with people through tecnology. As part of a collaborative work the task was creating drawings and diagrams that were used as part of the final submission.
LED ALGAE BOX
THE ALGAE WILL BE HOUSED WITHIN A CONTAINER WITH INDIVIDUALLY CONTROLLED LEDs. BY CONTROLLING THE AMOUNT OF LIGHT EACH MODULE RECEIVES , WE WILL BE ABLE TO CONTROL THE DENSITY AND APPEAR OF THE ALGAE WITHIN EACH MODULE
WALL RANGE DISPLAY 23
THE COLLECTION OF ALGAE BXES WIL CECOME A LIVING DISLAY OF THE FACE OF TE MUSEUM OF SCIENCE. EACH ALGAE CAN BE THOUGHT OF AS AN INDIVIDUAL PIXEL
THE BIO DISPLAY 05
FLOWING SYSTEM THE BIO-DISPLAY IS A SELF-SUSTINING SYSTEM THAT FILTERS AND PURIFIES GREY WATER USING ALGAE. CLEAN WATER WILL THEN MIST AND COOL THE OPEN GROUND SURFACE BELOW WHILE ALSO IRRIGATING LOCAL GARDEN SPICES.

THE IDEA: TABLE DISPLAY
COFF-E BAR 2.0
Miami - USA Art Basel - December 2015 Team: Dean El-Khoury, Prof. Chung, Prof. Park, Prof. Vasconez, Nika Mirrafie, Claudia Aguado, Pedro Ramos, and Frank Chen This project consist on the fabrication of an interactive coffee table where Fiducials are placed under each coffee mug which are then tracked by an infrared camera. Each coffee mug is identified with particular hashtag used to filter out unnecessary social media content. Relevant Twitter tweets and Instagram photos flock to each coffee mug which users can then rotate their respective coffee mug to cycle through the social media content. As part of the collaborative work, the assemblage of the table was done. 26
