Study Projects

Information and Media Center

YSTU Spring 2011

Yaroslavl, Russia

This is the project of revitalization of the Scientific and Technical Information Center which is located on Volga River in Yaroslavl on the intersection of two main axes of the city. The building has been almost entirely abandoned for years, only some offices were occupied by different administrations and businesses. After the general reconstruction of the Volga River embankment in Yaroslavl, this site of the building became a completion of the promenade. Therefore, this project proposes to transform this building into the multi-use public space, with the main function of the infrmation and media center, which would relate the present use to the past memories of the place.

Guitar Club

YSTU Spring 2008

Yaroslavl, Russia

Reconstruction of Abandoned Warehouse

YSTU Fall 2010

Uroch Station, Yaroslavl, Russia

These warehouses are located near the Volga river embankment on the one of the main transportation routs of the city. These aspects make this territory attractive for citizen with a great potential to be reused for recreational and public functions. However, at the present moment the buildings are being used for commercial purposes only with a low access for the community. That makes the place to be deserted. Also, industrial monotonous facades negatively affect the environment. This conceptual project suggests reconstruction of warehouses and adaptive reuse for a study function - language center.

Language Center will attract diverse groups of people to the site which will activate the place. The main concept is to organize study process through communication between people and exchanging experiences. Language center contains spacious classrooms, conference halls, info-center, library and electronic databases, forum, cinema hall, restaurant, residential areas and plenty of open-spaces for communication and group meetings.

The main features of this single family residential house are flexible open interior spaces and vertical system of roof gardens and terraces, which are cut though by a glass volume (the main hall) and that invites as much sunlight inside the house as possible from each East, West, South and North during the day.

Skate Park Yaroslavl, Russia YSTU Fall 2009

The need for this project was caused by the lack of free and specifically organized spaces for skateboarding and other sport activities around the city. The project concept is to create long avenue with three different levels gradually evolving by the level of complexity of skateboarding. The whole spot is surrounded by light “soaring� galleries for students to communicate during breaks, for visitors to observe and for pedestrians to cross the spot without any obstacles and risk of being injured by skateboarders.

Lake Eola Bridge Orlando, FL

UF GSoA Spring 2013 ARC 6912 Advanced Topics in Digital Architecture

This project is an effort to find connections between modern technology and nature, and create a light friendly environment which provides different options for people to turn from the main direction while crossing the bridge and enjoy the journey. Lake Eola Bridge is a 500’ span bridge which is not only the link between two banks, but also a theme park. The main pavilion contains the function of Lake Eola Museum and is located on the edge of one of the paths. The bridge contains a gallery for photo expositions to take place. The paths of the bridge lead to different options. Visitors can enjoy walking around the paths, delight in the relaxing atmosphere of the fountain located in the middle of the bridge in the place called “oasis”, pedaling a boat or just seating on the island surrounded by swans.

N Mills Bike Station "Network"

UF GSoA Spring 2013 Orlando, FL Advanced Topics in Digital Architecture

This is a project of the bike station which is going to be located on N Mills Ave, serving Orlando Art Museum and adjusted green areas of Haven Park. This building is going to be a replica for surrounding landscape and buildings of Orlando Museum of Art, Shakespeare Theater, Science Center and Repertory Theatre, which all have different architectural features and distinctive elements, like pointed tops and domes. The project contains storage for 50 bikes, restrooms, lockers, open spaces and seating places. The main volume of the building with the bike storage is going to be located along the Mills Ave, so that it can partially work for the road noise which destructs resting atmosphere of Loch Haven Park. The building is oriented towards the Park and creates an enclosure with surrounding buildings and open spaces. It has an opened structure with three entrances, one of which connects interior space of the building with surrounding green areas. The project also includes organization of the bike trail around the green area and surrounding buildings.

Reconstriction of The Ponizovkin Residency

YSTU Spring 2009

Yaroslavl, Russia

The Ponizovkin Residency was rebuilt in 1850 from the building of the 18th century. After that it collapsed in the May of 2010. The principal question was between two variants - to restore the old building or to construct a new one in order to save the line of the urban block. After historical analysis conducted within this projects the descision has been maid that the building didn't have a real value neither from architectural prospective nor from historical one. Thus, this project suggests reconstruction of the missing part of the block and organization of a light glass gallery for public use as an info center with a cafe on the exploited roof. The proportions of the facade were developed in a way that the general lines become a visual continuation of the historical urban block.

Form Based Codes for Oviedo Downtown

UF GSoA Fall 2012

Oviedo, FL

Growing population and new property development in Oviedo dictates the necessity of contemporary urban code implementation to avoid problems caused by rapid and unplanned urban development. A strategy for controlling the quality of new development and urban sprawl is the use of form-based codes. In order to maintain the history of the city in its built environment, a downtown redevelopment strategy is fostered to maintain a sense of community identity.

The district should be redeveloped through historic preservation and enrichment of the area through infill development. Maintaining authenticity and uniqueness of place is one of the criteria of a successful, contemporary urban development and should be an important component of the connection between the new and old urban development. The main focus of this form-based code is to turn the Historical Downtown Oviedo intoh a bicycle, pedestrian and automobile friendly environment.
