Architectural Portfolio Theory The various projects shown in the porolio explore ideas of sustainability, spaal juxtaposions, and phenomenology while maintaining a strict knowledge of architectural theory. Through each project, I explored different building typologies and different programmac issues while aempng to push the discipline of architecture forward through novel forms and oen conflicng ideas. The work is neither enrely modernist, nor is it enrely organic, but rather, the work occupies the space between these two movements and connually oscillates between the two. Although there are many theorecal camps one could adhere to, the work contained herein vacillates between many polaries in an effort to remain flexible to the influx of new ideas. “Re.Cover//” explores ideas of connecon in a disconnected area of Argenna. The project deals with recovering water from the most polluted river in Buenos Aires, while at the same me ulizing sunken ship hulls to re-cover the façade of the building. Re.Cover// was completed as part of a comprehensive studio and explores the urban implicaons of introducing connecon through light rail into an area that is known for being exceponally isolated and as a result, volale to the surrounding communies. For this project, I collaborated with Argennean partners to complete the design. The project recieved first place in the AIA 2x8 Design Compeon against twenty-eight other California entrants, and it also received second place in the Naonal ACSA Steel Compeon against one hundred and twentyeight other entrants. The project was also published in Clarin Newspaper in Argenna and was chosen as the cover image for the ACSA News Magazine October 2010 issue. “Extend(ED)” deals with how to fund a school in a failing economy. The project was inhabits the free air-rights above the Los Angeles River and uses a billboard typology and adversing to generate sustainable revenue for the school over the course of its lifeme. The classrooms were designed to slide in and out like dresser drawers to maximize or minimize gross square-footage which allows for greater flexibility in student populaon fluctuaons. Through careful research, it was shown that the billboard typology could not only effecvely fund a school, which completely removes state dependency for funding, but would have a budget double that of the average school. “Intravenous Deployment” is a search and rescue facility perched above the Los Angeles River that deploys rescue teams directly into the river when the river becomes flooded. The project explores structural parametrics to generate a meaningful soluon to a spanning problem, while at the same me exploring programmac juxtaposions. “Portable Arculang Display Wall” deals with the problem of how to create a light-weight, portable, and flexible wall for immediate use. The project was built using triangulated aluminum tubes that hinge on skateboard bushings, which means it could be flexed into any shape and it would retain its rigidity. The wall was designed with flexibility in mind such that it could be transported in a standard truck, could fit through any door, and could be deployed using minimal manpower and set-up me. Lastly, a hotel was designed, rendered and eventually built in downtown Los Angeles while working as an intern for a startup firm. The Orchid hotel explores the spaal relaonships created by the introducon of a mezzanine into a recepon space and the redesign of an exisng bar. The work shown herein represents my exploraons into many different ideas and growth over me. Each project was a vast learning experience as new ideas were assimilated and deployed in interesng and creave ways. Although the work exists in a constant state of flux between being modernist and organic, it represents a connued effort towards understanding architecture within the context of a greater urban fabric.

Problem: The Riachuelo River of Buenos Aires, Argentina is one of the most polluted rivers in the world. Not only is the river toxic, but nearly 30% of residents don’t have access to clean drinking water. The site is disconnected from Buenos Aires and is a haven for criminal and drug activity. Moreover, the Ministry of Water in Argentina does not have an official building to house the official administrative functions. Objective: Create a sense of place, provide essential water filtration services and explore the techtonics of structure in order to create a place unique to the user. Provide a museum to explore the water filtration process. Reconnect the area with a light-rail transit system. Process: Work collaboratively in Argentina with international partners. Investigate site in Argentina with Argentinians, question typical structural systems, investigate water filtration, research concept, diagram site according to concept, generate program, order spatial sequence of program to concept, generate form. Resolve. Concept: Salvaging water from the river and salvaging old ship hulls as skin for the building. Recovering the river and Re-covering the building. Program Requirements: 1.

STEEL TYPOLOGY GENERATES POTABLE WATER SUSTAINABLY

public

Project Intention Re.Cover// is a water filtration building that situates itself along the Riachuelo River of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Opposite the historic district of La Boca in the isolated Isla Maciel, the building serves as an infrastructural node reconnecting the divided city to itself and reconfiguring the fractured networks. The master plan incorporates a new light rail system as a key feature for accessing the building, but more importantly, to reconnect the people on both sites of the river. The building seeks to filter the river’s water sustainably, while at the same time it reuses discarded ship-hulls as skin. The building is divided into three parts where the treatment of the water and the act of cleaning can be celebrated. Re.Cover employs a multiplicity of sustainable technologies in order to produce potable water effectively, clean the heavy metal deposits and toxic waste dumped in the Riachuelo, and re-purposes steel from abandoned and sunken ships regionally.

Problem: A school is given roughly $2.5 Million annually for their budget. Proposing to use digital billboard technology to help create a system for the school to become independent from the government, allows for a provocative and palpable solution. Digital billboards sized 14’x48’ (672 SQ. FT.) make $15,000 in revenue monthly.

Stacked play areas shade each other.

Objective: Create a sense of place, provide essential services and explore the techtonics of structure through typologies in order to create a place unique to the user. Provide a school fiscally independant from the Government using billboard technology. Process: Investigate site, question typical structural systems, investigate computer scripting, research concept, diagram site according to concept, generate program, order spatial sequence of program to concept, generate form.

Project Intention Extend(ED) elementary school attacks traditional ideas of sustainability through the implementation of another factor: financial sustainability. By borrowing the typology of a billboard, the school is afforded the ability to generate its own revenue, thus removing dependency on state funding over the course of the school’s life-cycle. The fiscally sustainable school refuses to remain reliant on government funding in a failing economy. Moreover, as local population expands or contracts, the “billboard” has the ability to extend or shrink the physical space of the classrooms, like a habitable dresser drawer. The school is located in the air-rights space above the Los Angeles River which is the only free public land that remains undeveloped. Should the population continue to expand, the school has the ability to grow along the river adding more “drawers” to the billboard. As the billboard grows, the amount of funds available to the school increases. Conversely, should the school population shrink, the amount of available funds shrinks. The school, in this manner, is not morally irresponsible or greedy, but rather in a state of balance within society. Although there is considerable controversy regionally about the appropriate placement of advertisement billboards, Extend(ED) probes this controversy and relishes in the opportunity to question the basic assumption of the appropriateness of corporate infiltration in residential communities. The project utilizes the surrounding freeway intersection as an audience for advertising which eliminates the need to generate more billboards throughout the community, while at the same time creating a positive learning environment behind the veil. A dialectical argument is formed between the morally questionable nature of billboards and the wholesome nature of community, which is further probed Drawer Track by blurring the boundaries between the two. Steel becomes integral in the design of the Rubber over Corrugated Steel school given it must accomplish three main goals of spanning the Los Angeles River, supporting the Steel Structure load of a digital media advertising wall, and it must anticipate growth or decay. The steel truss system Drop Ceiling becomes an opportunity to highlight the material itself for its expressive qualities while at the same HVAC Ducts time creating an armature for flexibility. Extend(ED) elementary seeks to answer Electrical the questions of how to fund schools throughout their life-cycle without state funding in a failing econPlumbing omy, and how to anticipate adaptability. The project Atrium Window for Indirect Light questions typical building typologies and the role of corporate sponsorship in schools, while at the same time, creating a positive learning environment that C-channel Steel Stud Framing can be readapted to the changes in the community.

Intravenous Deployment borrows the language of the surrounding context of the freeway system and utilizes steel patterning to create a shell structure to support the weight of the building over the river. The project, as an organ, injects itself into the circulation system of Los Angeles through the use of the LA River in order to rapidly deploy search and rescue crews efďŹ ciently. The complex structure of the Los Angeles Freeway was analyzed and diagramed at critical moments, and that language was reinterpreted as a node-based network which was then applied through scripting to create a structural network. The ďŹ nal solution is a dancing interplay between structure and enclosure . The tripod tower spans the channel, touching down on either side and at the critical juncture, while at the same time adding structural stability to the mass by providing an anchoring point for the dual bulbs. The structural system uses the strength of a network to its advantage to span the large gap. The bulbs act like two archery bows pushing against each other using the formal strength of the arch and the strength of steel in tension to support the load of a helicopter. The tower helps take the load by transferring weight through the members down to the tripod base allowing the negative space underneath the frame to support the weight of hung program. The building acts as an organ within the circulatory system of the river.

Cross Filtered Spaces Project in San Fernando is an approach to sustainable design through formfinding and form-making operations. The form of the building was developed by using the inherent rules of passive solar design as motivators to manipulate mass. The concept of the twelve unit mixed use complex is the interaction between the natural environment and the urban fabric through the process of filtering. The natural elements are brought down into the units via photovoltaic cells and passive solar water-heaters on the roof, and the urban fabric is brought up into each unit from underneath the units through a shared atrium space. The shared atrium space encased in glass questions the aspect of privacy by forcing neighbors to see into eachothers units in carefully controlled view angles. The growth of the form is analogous to the growth and filtration methods of a tree, and the mass of the form floats above the ground inviting the public into the underbelly. As the environmental elements and the urban elements are exchanged in the housings units, the cells are cooled with a system of gills that respond to the solar path and are articulated accordingly. Each unit operates around a shared atrium space that enables the exchange of natural and urban elements and the mass of the building is pushed and pulled to facilitate the best solar angles for optimum solar usage. The push and pull of the form creates a split level section for every unit with the living room closest to the entry, and the bedroom the furthest respectively. The structure of the building is derived from the analysis of stair systems and serves as the armature suspending the bulk of the form in the air, only to be anchored at the corner. The vertical green space keeps the gallery cool and provides clean oxygen to the community. The steel for the building would be supplied from manufacturers that incorporate recycled content, thus adding to the sustainable aspects of the project. Cross-filtered spaces is about the mixing of urban fabric and environmental forces.

Architectural Concept: Shared Spaces in a Triplex

Howeler & Yoon TRIPPLE HOUSE Virginia, 2005 PROGRAM: Three residential units linked by a common space The post-nuclear house functions within the parameters of the suburban American dream - the architecturally distinct detatched dwelling. It is nuanced by the cultural specificity that desires greater integenerational connectivity while maintaining the needs of convenience, privacy and territorality. The Tripple House packages these needs into a compact and multi-stranded structure, encasing it’s multiple and semi-autonomous domestic spaces within the folds of the bundled manifold.

Herzog De Meuron SIGNAL BOX Auf dem Wolf Basel, Switzerland 1994 PROGRAM: Railway Control Box Signal Box auf dem Wolf sits among railway tracks adjacent to the eighteenth– and nineteenth–century walls of the Wolf–Gottesacker cemetery. Its concrete shell, insulated on the exterior, is wrapped with copper strips approximately eight inches wide that are twisted at certain places to admit daylight. While the copper creates a dynamic architectural skin, its functional role is to provide an electrostatic shield. A signal box is a building from which railway signals are switchedcontrolled. Here the designation also seems to relate subjectively to this structure's scaleless boxlike form.

Project Description: The Pleated Duplex, or (Pleat)plex for short, uses formal dress-making operations as a tectonic system in order to deal with the numerous issues of sustainable construction. The skin of the building becomes a fabric upon which a system of folding, cutting, twisting, sewing, slitting, and pleating is applied in order to best deal with the site and environmental conditions. The ceilings pleat into walls to deal best with the angle of sun exposure and the skin is slit to let winter sunlight in, keep summer sunlight out, and to passively heat and cool the building. The folded space directs cool air in low and hot air out of the top of building through the use of a thermal chimney. Programmatically, the (Pleat)plex blurs the distinction between public space and private space through the use of a shared common area and almost no interior walls. Moreover, the shared level bifurcates into two individual units situating the program along a parallel dual axis with the most private space placed at the furthest extents away from the shared space. The building is built of sustainable recycled materials and the interior space of the (Pleat) plex is spatially exible in order to accommodate change in the use and occupancy over time. 4

CONCEPT DIAGRAM Entropy It is a measure of the randomness of molecules in a Shooting Range system and is central to the second law of thermodynamics and the combined law of thermodynamics, which deal with physical processes and whether they occur spontaneously. Spontaneous changes, in isolated systems, occur with an increase in entropy. Spontaneous changes tend to smooth out differences in temperature, pressure, density, and chemical potential that may exist Bar/Lounge Casino in a system, and entropy is thus a measure of how far this smoothing-out process has progressed.Quantitatively, Dance Club entropy is defined by the differential quantity dS = δQ / T, where δQ is the amount of heat absorbed in an isothermal and reversible process in which the system goes from one state to another, and T is the absolute temperature at which the process is occurring.[5] Entropy is one of the factors that determines the free energy of the Strip Club system. This thermodynamic definition of entropy is only valid for a system in equilibrium (because temperature is defined only for a system in equilibrium), while the statistical definition of entropy (see below) applies URBAN to any system. Thus the statistical definition is usually considered the fundamental definition of entropy. 4

Hollenbeck Park: Mix3d-Use project represents a transition from the urban fabric to the natural environment through surface displacement. As the surface is displaced, pockets are created for residential, community and retail inhabitation. Program is organized via the idea of urban to natural both vertically and horizontally. The project is sited along the freeway edge to maximize the view into the park and to mask the freeway itself. Moreover, the displacement of the natural earth preserves the park community by allowing unobstructed pedestrian movement both laterally and vertically while providing sustainable green resources to the community.

BoilerHaus Architecture School of Pasadena addresses the serious problem of overcrowding in schools, as well as the continuous change in building function over time. Through flexibility of spaces, the school can adapt to the changing needs of the students and provide a more efficient learning environment. The idea of BoilerHaus is that the students must cooperate and share precious resources as they engage in a proverbial tug-ofwar over the main space itself. This interaction forces students to work together to accomplish individual goals. Once the term is complete, the mainspace extends outward into the surrounding campus drawing students from other programs into the gallery space to view work that may have gone unnoticed.

Process Description: Project Rehab - Metamorphosis began with an identification of problems inherent in social rehabilitation and the stigmas surrounding physical disabilities. The need of a new type of facility was identified given the stated problem with physical, mental and social rehabilitation. Further, the decaying Van De Kamps building was chosen for it’s location within Los Angeles, and more importantly, it was chosen because of it’s dilapidated physical condition. Thus, the design intervention became about modifying the broken building with a “prosthetic device”, and not about a complete demolition. Design Research began with an extensive artifact investigation gathered at the site. Each of the objects were evaluated and modified through a process of word transformation. The transformed words were organized to describe a process of metamorphosis. Research into metamorphosis and ideas of rehabilitation, prosthesis and surveillance was conducted and the concept of the project became Metamorphosis. Through the process of ordering the transformed words to describe a rebirth, the program was then reordered to describe the same process as seen in figure 3. This yielded interesting programmatic relationships that were further explored through the process of design. Next, a container was made to house the artifacts which were revealed in the sequence describing a rebirth. The container exercise revealed a circulation and spatial sequence that later informed the design.

The Concept for the North Facade treatment was to create a louvered system that responds to environmental conditions such as wind, rain or sunlight. The glass panels themselves would have photovoltaic elements within them, which would be used to provide energy to the building or heat the pool. Furthermore, the degree of transformation of the louvers increases along with the increase in deformation of the structure laterally to physically describe metamorphosis. The pool was designed as an object straddling inside and out to act as a buffer between the different physical activities happening within these two zones. The structure deforms with increasing severity as it responds to programmatic elements. It reaches out transforming itself from a structure into a canopy providing poolside shade. Once inside, the ten foot language of the structure continues in the oor plates, further organizing the program. The large atrium at the heart of the building is a void representing the feeling of loss within user, yet the circulation is open and circular. The dichotomy of the old versus the new is exploited as one enters and exits the building and the interplay between the old and the new is where the user experiences the concept of metamorphosis the strongest.

The need of a new type of architecture was identified given initial site conditions. Further, the project became about an integration of landscape architecture and conventional architecture through a synthesis of the two. Design research began with an extensive painting transformation process as well as an extensive study of the site through diagramming. George Braque’s painting is about the synthesis of articulating planes and static planes, hence the project focused on the synthesis of those two languages. A program was generated to satisfy the needs of the client and was ordered via circulation. A new architectural language emerged from the combination of all these factors. In essence, the project was about a continuous surface that responds to program and light.

The concept for the Alumni Commons Surface Treatment was to create a synthesis of articulated systems versus planar systems that accentuates the relationship between architecture and landscape and frames spaces using light. The glass panels above the spaces would be opaque offering privacy to the travelers above, while at the same time, letting a large amount of light into the space. Furthermore, situating the spaces on levels that are within a plus or minus ten foot differential makes the program open, yet still separate. The amount of windows above respond to the activity taking place below as well as the relative population densities within the different programmatic elements. Also, the structure deforms with increasing severity as it responds to said programmatic elements. The dichotomy of the old versus the new is exploited as the surface leeches onto the surrounding buildings and the interplay between the old and the new is where the user experiences the concept of synthesis the strongest.

The concept for the Alameda Corridor was to create an Androgenous facility with the ability to adapt to changing consumer and producer ideas. Through the combination of retail and manufacturing, the consumer is allowed a chance to participate in the production of the very products they consume. The idea for the facility is a physical manifestation of a consumer driven market similar to amazon.com. Techtonically, the form ramps users up and around the manufacturing area in a crescendo peaking in the retail area. Furthermore, the retail and the manufacturing areas remain relatively separate due to the danger inherent in textile manufacturing. The form is seen as exible as it wraps around the manufacturing area, while at the same time it is controlled in the clear separation between the two; thus the space between is Androgenous.

The Alameda Corridor Project: Made-In questions typological ideas of the relationship between consumer and producer by offering a vehicle for consumers to take part in the creation of their products. Through the combination of retail and manufacturing, the facility lets the market dictate it’s own direction similar to an internet market amazon.com. The project is located in the city of Vernon and utilizes the Alameda Corridor for raw materials.

Process Description: The Portable Display Stand Project began with extensive research into different types of portable systems. Not only was research conducted into Architectural displays, but ideas of camping equipment and the like were also researched. Through the course of design, the concept became about triangulating, which was expressed via a perforated sheet metal skin and aluminum bones. After the big gesture was created, the details had to be worked out such as the hinge system. Ultimately, it was decided that a new type of constant-friction hinge had to be developed. This hinge, made from skateboard bushings, was capable of delivering a steady supply of friction when tightened, allowing the triangulated system to move liberally but maintain it’s shape once the user has stopped moving it. Essentially, it could be collapsed and expanded and once it was open or closed, the project stayed that way until the user decided to alter it’s shape.

Problem: A hypothetical party in the Eames House courtyard creates a need for a seating area. Objective: Create a seating area for a party based on self-similar geometry and a proportional system. Process: Investigate site and diagram proportions in the house. Develop a human scale proportional system and use it to influence the self-similar geometry. Create a justified intervention. Resolve. Concept: Space in which it is NOT Legend: 1. Rendering 2. Rendering 3. Analytical Diagrams 4. Plan 5. Longitudinal Section Process Description: The Eames House Intervention began with a case study on a smaller scale. An original Eames chair was selected and diagrammed to reveal the human proportional scale inherent within the built form. Next the diagrams were translated into a 3D grid system which imposed constraints on the placement of specific forms. Furthermore, the Eames House itself was diagrammed to reveal yet another proportional system. Finally, site restrictions were imposed which revealed what the form could NOT be. This idea of describing the form by what it cannot be became the essential idea behind the intervention. By finding out the answers to what it is NOT, this approach successfully narrowed down the answers to what it could be. A form was generated that satisfied all of the self imposed restrictions, which was developed using self-similar geometry construction techniques.
