Detroit Redux The Detroit Pistons’ new arena is sited along the waterfront of downtown Detroit. It is a beacon to regional fans as well as an example to be followed for future development. The roof of the arena becomes a site of occupancy where visual connections are made between paying fans, players and tailgaters on the outside. This is achieved through deep cuts and peeling in the roof plane. This peeling facilitates the insertion of program, geometry and the hard and soft surface that provide opportunities for different sports and activities. The exclusivity of the stadium is inverted and spilled out across the site; this gives fans a place to create their own competitions. The landscape is an extension of the stadium, forging connections to the greater area as an outdoor fitness park and place where fans without tickets can simply lean against the arena roof and see their team play.

Summer 2011 | Collaboration 1+5

d3 Natural Systems Design Competition In the summer of 2011 I organized and lead a small design collaboration. We developed a basic business model, a way of working and submitted 3 competition proposals while maintaining regular contact with 2 advisors. This student based firm consisted of myself and 5 of my fellow graduate students. We collaborated from various parts of the country including UC Berkeley, Yale University, University of Utah and The Rhode Island School of Design. This is one of the resulting entries from that summer. This project was submitted to New York’s d3 Natural Systems competition. The project was published and exhibited later that year. What follows are the group’s competition boards and my contribution to the project.

Elderly Housing + Campus This housing campus embraces the freedom of retirement while providing comfortable support facilities to aid the residents in their daily routines. By reacting to the three major local elements, the river, the hill to the east and Wickenden Street, the project is sculpted to embrace the local activity as well as the natural elements that it boarders. Taking advantage of river views, the housing levels rise to create a visual connection to the urban fabric while still maintaining porosity toward the landscape. Within the units themselves, residents have the option of supported living through open adjacent occupancy. This allows for kitchens and laundry rooms of two neighboring units to be shared giving residents the option to support one another by combining daily tasks with that of their neighbors. This concept is echoed throughout the program with communal moments of rest that grow in size as you move through the building. The weaving landscape aids in the support of relaxation by creating a series of secluded areas that slope into expanded open lawns within the courtyard. Below the triangular slopes rainwater is collect for various uses within the campus. The program includes exercise facilities, a small grocery store, cafe and a continuing education center.

Winter 2011

Tiber Floods The Tiber River and the city of Rome have a long and turbulent relationship. After the 1870 flood large embankment walls were constructed at great cost to the urban fabric of the city. Nearly 20% of the city was removed to facilitate these protective measures. The focus of this studio was to view the seasonal flooding with a contemporary lens. How much flooding can the city tolerate? What solutions can be offered to reconnect Rome with its hidden river? Centered around the Forum Boarium I began to reconnect not only the river with the city but the three ancient temples as well. An axial path was used to generate a piercing strategy. Traffic was diverted and a new landscape was created between the monuments and the river. The river platform releases part of its architecture to become a current driven ferry system. Similar systems can still be seen today in cities such as Basel. The site itself can be flooded in stages safely. In the case of a 100 year flood the pierced wall would be sealed by large flood gates housed within the wall itself. The duality of flooded to pedestrian space is explored around the temples themselves with anthropomorphic subtractions. The archway construction can be repeated to reinvigorate space all along the Tiber. Retail spaces can also be inserted to draw Rome back to the Tiber.

The New School for Digital Arts This new school considers our current educational system and challenges it. With access to stateof-the-art digital processing labs and flexible collaborative spaces students can receive an education based on a way of thinking rather than test scores. This development, located near the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, considers the concept of filtration and physical permeability. This conceptual framework creates the connective tissue that is so necessary for the school and its downtown community. This concept also allows the students and faculty to interact in a distraction free learning environment while other parts of the program welcome distraction as an impetus for creativity. Additionally, it explores the notion that students not only learn from their respective teachers but from the building itself. Revealing methods of construction , sources of energy and other concepts embedded with in the structure to the students as a way of architectural communication.

Concrete Frame House The concrete frame house is designed for a visiting music professor at the Brown School of Music. It has a focus on performance both on the systems from which it is comprised, and the space of performance which is built into its program. The concrete, both precast and cast-in-place, are used to enhance the acoustics, environmental systems, and spatial qualities of the house. The structural framework of the house is two large walls that divide a circulation space from living space, and operate as a fulcrum and counterweight to cantilever the 2nd floor sleeping areas over the performance space on the ground floor. The cantilever allows for a seamless transition from interior to exterior and connection to the surrounding context.

Theater Beginning with the most basic system, the knot, I investigated the various design possibilities that can evolve from that system. Moving from stage to stage via design charettes, I investigated ground, site, light, materiality and modular design. Warm toned wood is used to draw a gradient of light back through the crowd. The exterior walls are constructed with concrete modules. These modules contain the logic of the knot and give the building its porous appearance and illuminative permeability. The program of a 1.5 scale puppet theater gave me the opportunity to design based on the sidedness of the spectacle. Traditional indoor seating was created for a more intimate performance space while the outdoor seating provided for a dramatic view across a ravine. At night, the theater serves as a beacon to would be patrons. The performance casts its shadows on the surrounding trees and landscape, animating them with light.

Elmwood Community Garden Elements: shaded area, perimeter fence, tool storage, planting beds, and pedestrian/truck access. These elements create zones of varied activity. Public areas such as tool storage and major pathways as well as the semi-private planting beds, provide new and unique opportunities for the people of Elmwood to connect with one another. The relationship between the planting areas can thus provide not only an efficient and usable space, but an opportunity to engage with the local community. We investigated this relationship by designing beds of different proportions and orientations. Spaces for kneeling, standing, and sitting are integrated throughout each of the four planting areas. This combination of differing bed types allows each member of the community garden to work where they are most comfortable. My role as co-designer, construction manager and coordinator of the modular installation can be seen throughout the following project.

Coffee Table Based on my interest in furniture design and a semester worth of research and practice I created a piece of my own. This table is designed around subtle functionality that contains a variety of volumes within. These volumes showcase objects of different scales. Made with the light-colored hardwood, European Beech, the table highlights the objects placed within it. The austere front of the table gives a small hint of depth which is prominent on the other side. Moving around the piece the sectional quality of the wrapping planes becomes dominant. The feet are made of mahogany. The rounded form and dark appearance allow them to disappear beneath the shadow of the table.

Spindle Seat Made of recycled materials totaling $5, this project reimagines the use of those materials. The plastic tops were caps in a former life, the spindles and cones held thread. Connected together and splayed outward they have a collective strength. The nature of the cone ensures a secure press fit connection that can be reconfigured at any time. This allows for maximum flexibility of the base unit. This seat functions as a rocking chair, ottoman, storage for rolled drawings or as a stackable acoustic surface.

Skrimp Lamp Made from general purpose dust masks this hanging lamp filters light, changes shape and disperses heat generated by the bulb. Using the same construction logic as the dust mask I was able to create a free form hanging sculpture using only staples and the elastic head bands. The masks also form a protective cushion that allows the lamp to be shipped as is while protecting the large filament Edison bulb inside.

Plywood F端rn Series These tables were designed with a few simple concepts in mind, keep them simple, compact, and affordable. Made of birch plywood and steel pipe the connections are basic and strong. The dining table has adjustable screw type legs capped in white oak. Easily removable for transportation or to simply free up space around the house. The desk and side table both rely on gravity to lock the loose pipe into place. These are just as simple to breakdown but slightly more complicated to build. By giving the legs a splayed compound angle the weight of the tables forces the legs into fixed positions. If the weight is removed the legs simple fallout and the table can be stored flat or in a corner out of the way.
