W 56 Street Proposal _ Summer 2008 Archi-tectonics: Internship Principlal : Winka Dubbledam Zoning analysis, FAR analysis, Massing Study Rhino, 3D Studio Max, AutoCAD, PhotoShop, Illustrator

This work was done as an intern under Winka Dubbeldam and Thomas Barry for a concept proposal for a luxury apartment building on West 56th Street in New York City. The extent of this work transferred zoning analysis into its architectural potential. The design began with the constraints of street wall, front and rear setbacks, and sky exposure plane. Another main constraint was the percentage of balconies on the facade. The focus of the design was to morph the maximized volume defined by the zoning boundaries to elevate FAR by perforating the building envelope and floor plates. This allowed the elevation of the living spaces and desirable apartments. The main concern with this approach was the core positioning and usable floor space constrained by the sky exposure plane. The redistribution of FAR resulted in a five story lobby that could be programmed with building amenities and retail.

W 24 Street Facade Detailing _ Summer 2008 Archi-tectonics: Internship Principlal : Winka Dubbledam Fabrication Feasibility Study, Detailing Study Rhino, Maya, CATIA, Illustrator

The renovation of a brownstone on West 24th Street in New York City resulted in a parametric design of the faรงade. Because of the complexity, the office was working with an automotive fabricator to build a milled wood faรงade. Trying to keep faithful to the existing shape, we had to figure out how to insert operable windows and doors into the form. Projecting the details of the shape in order to find out how the detailing would impact the assemblage.

PORTS 1961 Shanghai _ Summer 2010 Archi-tectonics: Internship Principlal : Winka Dubbledam Fabrication Feasibility Study, Detailing Study Rhino, Grasshopper, AutoCAD, PhotoShop, Illustrator

My contribution in the design for the Shanghai location of the PORTS 1961 store focused on the fabrication and the design development drawings of the circumscribing armature. The morphology of this armature mediates existing spatial characteristics with the programmatic necessities of seating and product display. The armature was digitally fabricated, emulating a local ship-building tradition that involved structural rib frames and horizontal plank patterning. pre-existing image & form by Archi-techtonics

SOHO Grand Salon Instillation _ Summer 2010 Archi-tectonics: Internship Principlal : Winka Dubbledam Fabrication Feasibility Study, Detailing Study Rhino, Grasshopper, 3D Studio Max, , PhotoShop

This is work produced for an initial proposal request for an installation in the cages at the SOHO Grand Hotel’s lounge. The cages were transformed into lanterns by creating floating entities that embody and redistribute light emitting from the cages’ base. This effect can be achieved by the suspension and orientation of holographic film, treated glass, or treated acrylic.
