CAF New headquarters International competition in Caracas Venezuela, 2008.

Ten Architects. Office of Enrique Norten. Honorary Mention, International Design Competition. The new headquarters for the Corporation Andina de Fomento (CAF) is conceived as a detonating element of the new north south axis that will connect the central valley with the Caracas mountain range, with vegetation and Geography taking a leading role. This project expands the number of ground floors public spaces and connects two large urban parks. It also promotes the pedestrian and vehicular flow between urban sectors, public spaces and new developments. Plazas, parks, mass transit stations, paths and various urban activity centers are allocated along this new axis, which also sets a framework for a breathtaking view to the Avila Mountain. The proposal doubles the public space of plaza Altamira and Promote public transportation by providing extra parking spaces directly connected to an important mass transit hub. Along the axis an increase of density is proposed for the Altamira Sur district.

Colonia Obrera Venice Biennale 2008.

Delekamp Architects. Office of Derek Dellekamp. The Colonia Obrera is a neighborhood of Mexico city which was developed in the beginning of the 1900´s, as a housing quarter for working class of those days.It was founded for industry workers, artisans and countrymen that would work in the center of Mexico City. Since then the urban fabric has remained practically the same as it is today. All though there has been an inclusion of subways, metro bus, a major freeway (called Central Axis or Eje Central), and many transformations that have happened in the central core since then. The contradiction of this neighborhood is that although the city has evolved, in many different ways, the identity and scale of this neighborhood has remained intact, so how come the city has grown to an unprecedented scale, without transforming this area? The reasons why this has happened are not the purpose of this project, but the ways to create higher quality housing, with high density, taking advantage of the existing infrastructure and proximity of the city center. This project stretches the limits of common sense by preserving the buildings in the area we believe have value, densifying without creating an urban ghetto, connecting in a low scale with other blocks, creating an almost 80% green footprint due to terraces and green roofs, exhacerbing the principles of a community through public space which at the moment are inexistent.

We believe in the essence of “the barrio� (neighborhood) as the structure of our thought. We believe in architecture as a discipline capable of creating values in the way humans interact. We believe in social interaction, cohesion and sharing resources. We believe in accessibility with independence.

16


We believe in sports, bicycles and outdoor living in an enclosed city space. We believe in privacy inside an artificial ecosystem which is the essence of a city. We believe in a programmatic hybrid, in space and in the capacity of an individual to take over it.

Arnold Schwarzenegger & Maria Shriver Forum of the Future Leed Building proposal for the University of California Davis, 2010.

Ehdd. Office of Charles Davis. Sustainable Architecture. The aim of this project was to propose a zero energy building for the University of California Davis. The program consisted in the development of educational facilities for environmental studies. As part of the client requirements the building incorporates the office for the Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Our first approach for the proposal was to design two different massings, each varies in functionality and operation. Important topics like optimum orientation, wind flow, daylighting, and the use of local materials were the foundation of a very successful and high quality development for sustainable design.

Smith Vosler House Residential House in San Rafael Ca, 2010.

Nilus Design. Office of Nilus de Matran. Residential Project, Under Construction. Located above the hills of the San Rafael Mountains, the Smith & Vosler family decided to restore their house. The proposal not only addresses the existing space but also expands the volumetry of the house by the creation of a secondary tower. One of the primary requirements of the client was to transform the southern wood facade into a curtain glass wall. This decision turned the project into a challenge; which consisted in understanding the thermal comfort performance, to develop a solution that avoids over heating. In response to that we designed a trellis above the terrace to provide shade. This project is currently under construction.

Morpho’Logical Educational Facilities

A thesis submitted in partial satisfaction of the requirements for the degree of ‘Master in Architecture’ in the graduate division of UC Berkeley.

Committee in charge: Susan Ubbelohde, Tom Buresh, Marc L’italien, & Peter Bosselman. The aim of this thesis was to explore the parallel recovery and evolution of Buildings and Landscapes through time. Morpho’Logical Restoration seeks to maximize the potential of postindustrial sites through decades of sequential architectural interventions. This study asks how the preserved architectural elements in the former ‘Bayview Hunters Point’ Naval base could stay alive and yet be adapted to evolve over time. After the 2030 Challenge I believe that Architecture is confronting a period of re-configuration and is more aware of future challenges. It represents an open door for new ideas, technologies and possibilities. The project consists in a ‘continuos and periodical adaptive reuse strategy’ of a military base into a Media Park. -Against the current proposal of redevelopment for a football stadium, I believe that the existing historical buildings have great potential to be recycled. The buildings that are located on site offer the spatial qualities to be restored into a continuos and connected complex. Performance Goals of the Project: Envelop would be preserved and readapted.

26

Program would be active and changeable. Spatial Configuration would be flexible and dynamic. Module would achieve maximum spans. Skeleton would provide maximum rigidity.

Morpho’Logical Media Park

A thesis submitted in partial satisfaction of the requirements for the degree of ‘Master in Architecture’ in the graduate division of UC Berkeley.

Committee in charge: Susan Ubbelohde, Tom Buresh, Marc L’italien, & Peter Bosselman. A Media Park represents the perfect bond of education and nature. The proposal brings together a social, technological, environmental and cultural program. Social: The project would offer primary education, job opportunities, social participation, recreational programs and also a sense of community. Technological: An implementation of an integral energy transportation system, the construction of educational facilities of high performance, and finally the promotion of green sustainable technology. Environmental: The project not only recovers but also expands its habitat and biodiversity. It is respectful of the environment by the recycle of landscape and buildings. It also saves land by a construction strategy of ‘Urban Infill’ (by densifying the educational facilities footprint, the project releases vast areas for landscape architecture, recreational areas and open space). Cultural: The park would offer, ‘active educational and cultural programs, that would reinforce the identity of the local community. Also recognizes its history by the preservation of important architectural buildings and by the construction of ‘The Hunters Point History Museum’.

34

Objectives of the Project: Secure the remediation, rehabilitation and re-densification of the site. Reorganize and optimize the access, circulation and attractions of the site. Activate beneficial sustainable cycles for the area and for the local community of Bayview. Connect the area with the neighborhood and with the rest of the urban fabric.

The Bay Bridge Project The Bay Bridge ‘Studio” M Arch UC Berkeley, 2011.

Professors: Frederic Schwartz & Marc L’italien. Published in the San Francisco Chronicle. Awarded with an Honorable Mention, in the international Competition ‘M_Art’ Madrid Spain. The project consists in the creation of a self sufficient community that grows food and flowers. A progressive active and changeable program of “Local Development and Manufacture on site”. From the environmental and ethical perspective, I am preserving a very historical site, “The Bay Bridge”. As most people are focusing on the construction of the new bay bridge, slated to be finished by 2013. Others are thinking of ways to reuse the old one. “A structure that cost approximately $80 million Dollars.

The infrastructure and Architecture for the Master Plan are driven by ‘sustainable design and green technology’. Creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle. -Flexibility, Adaptability, Deployability and Prefabrication, were some of the explored concepts for the creation of this promenade of modular architecture. A PROMENADE OF HOUSING UNITS, WORKSHOPS MODULES, FARMING BEDS AND SERVICES, SET FOR THE PUBLIC FOR THEIR ENJOYMENT, “AN URBAN MARKET IN THE BAY BRIDGE”

Biomimicry ‘Globe Fish’ Elasticity Inquiries Studio M Arch UC Berkeley, 2011.

Professor: Maria Paz Gutierrez. Implementation of ‘Biomimetics’ into the creative design process. This project consisted in the development of a pneumatic structure by studying a living organism. As part of my personal research I focused in The ‘Globe Fish’ and his capacities to expand and contract his spinal chord. Thousand of years ago, The Globe fish used to be very slow, and easy to be captured. Through the course of time & ‘evolution’ he developed two defense mechanisms: the first one was to become poison by eating bacteria, and the second was to inflate himself by filling his body with water. Once his body is inflated, the metamorphosis that his spinal chord experience is an incredible method to study, mostly for structural elements that have torsion, expansion & contraction.

In response to that, I invented a bio-dynamic pneumatic structure that has the ability to be expanded and contracted by air pressure; A structure that later was incorporated to ‘Generative Components’ as Parametric design. A B C

The Mekong River Project Elasticity Inquiries Studio part II M Arch UC Berkeley, 2011.

Professor: Maria Paz Gutierrez. Incorporation of a pneumatic structure into a dynamic landscape in the Mekong river area. Project submitted to KERB competition, Melbourne Australia. The aim of this proposal was to design a system that would allow ‘farm production’ of local communities of Mekong, during the monsoon and rainy season. In the past years, research has proved that communities of farmers had been greatly affected by floods and greatly unstable confronting: disease, hunger and loss of land. In response to that I designed a dynamic structural foundation, with a pneumatic unit prototype that has the potential to be vertically stacked. Each module would have a different function that would provide each family the basic needs to survive The modules would be conformed by a farming bed, a housing unit, a storage unit and a water cistern. By being stacked vertically they would create a self-sufficient life cycle that would maintain the community on site during the flood season. The result proves to be a self-generative grid that could be deployable, transportable and easily constructed. A progressive dynamic landscape that has the abilities to produce and survive.

Energy & Environment Building Sciences M Arch UC Berkeley, 2011.

Professor: Allan Daly & Charlie Huizenga . This course explores energy simulation programs for sustainable design. During the class we researched & tested the latest energy simulation programs for environmental design including: Confen, Resfen, Ecotect, Energy Plus & E-Quest. My personal research was focused in energy simulations for ‘Indoor Vertical Farming’. During the design process I had the opportunity to run several simulations to find the best possible solution either in: type of window, type of frame, daylighting, air flow and high performance facade. At the same time I took advantage of the weather tool in Ecotect to fully understand the site of the project and its context, including optimum orientation, prevailing winds, humidity and rainfall. As a result, the energy simulation tools provided me precise data of the units orientation, & vegetables location.

Flexible Market Course: Cinematic Landscape. Professor: Cesar Torres Bachelor of Landscape Architecture. Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Theme: Flexible Market. The aim of this exercise was to propose a design strategy that addresses the problems found on site, and to propose new ways of organizing dynamic systems. My proposal was to create a Flexible Market based in the concept of the Mexican illegal Tiaguis. For that I created an urban plan based on rules and parameters to control the everyday development. .

CONSTRUCTION DETAIL

Inserting this daily system to this part of the city, is something new and it creates a positive chaos. Analyzing this type of masses in a city like this is unique and also interesting.

Finally I see this project as a human body with soul, which is in constant movement, connected to the behavior of the city, the period of time, the season of the year and the needs of the environment. Plates.

Digital design center

‘Poise’ Multidisciplinary Studio B Arch RMIT, Melbourne Australia 2007.

Professor: Mark Burry This studio converged students from different disciplines (graphic design, fashion design, industrial design, landscape architecture, & architecture). for the creation of a digital design center. Brief: We want to define the architecture and landscape through projection. That gives the flexibility for every changing possibilities. Nobody can posses the space, nobody can earn it. It should be truly public space. We don´t want to create a piece of architecture or landscape architecture, we want to create an experience. It should be more like a self reflection, an interactive space. Methods:Communication through images and text Defining shape through projection Multifunctional rooms Decisions:Main theme as projection Projection as Architecture & Landscape Public space, not private in the context of rules and regulations Flexible, unlimited and non-permanence

Proposal of several projections in the Facade.

Projection test based on intensity

Projecting into the landscape to create a virtual experience

64

Projecting animations into the project


Final results

Dots Intensity of activity within the building. The more people, the smaller the dot s and therefore more dots. colours help in differentiating levels of buildings, in this case - 2 levels.

Water Another measurement of activity within the building. This relates back to water, by using less obvious visuals in to show the intensity. White lines will animate on levels with the most activity while black lines will animate on the least intense level. The spaces in between will be used to blend these two animations together.

Voice This is a combination of ideas that involves the intensity parameters, voice recognition and noise level measurement. Speech bubbles will appear on the facade relating to approximate whereabouts of the person speaking. Recognisible words from a 65 database will be displayed one at a time at a certain interval. Newly updated speech bubbles will overlap older ones, how loud the word is spoken also effects the size of it.

Visualizing the virtual con course Research studio B Arch RMIT, Melbourne Australia 2006.

Professor: Leon Van Schaik, Tom Kovac, Sean Kelly, Alvin Low. The aim of this studio was to create a Research for the Venice Biennale. The research is based in the development of new ways of ‘studying’, taking advantage of the tools that the modern world has provided us. Synopsis: The emergence of virtual learning environments has revealed short-comings in the fundamental assumptions made about learning itself, chief amongst which has been the failure to base models on learning as a socially structured activity. The same can be said of the translation of research and enterprise practices into virtual environments. Expert solutions have been proposed that address technical refinements or information delivery models of learning and that do not answer the questions being asked by users, and their need to operate in communities of practice.

66

The VIRTUAL CONCOURSE is an Innovation concept that unites researchers and product developers in the pursuit of a long term goal, and that enables the development and application of partial solutions to the needs of a wide range of clients who share a similar long term and evolving goal. The concept begins with user perceptions and requirements and embraces, like a Portuguese man-of-war, a colony of agents who work on processing and digesting the information that the concept draws into contention. This model is non-judgemental about participants, but provides a ‘platform for change’ (Beer, 1975) on which people can engage at their own pace, and in the company of peers.

Floodplains

SIAL Laboratory B Arch RMIT, Melbourne Australia 2007.

Professor: Mark Burry. Local competition for Architectural students. First Place awarded. (awarded with the entrance to the Homo Faber Exhibition at the Melbourne Museum). The aim of this course was to explore a concept connected with the topic of water and therefore to create an architectural project. For this project I worked and analyzed the evolution of ‘floodplains’ for the development of a water Laboratory in the southern part of Melbourne. The main physical composition and elements of the floodplains are based on water flow and the eroded ground surface (which are called ‘islands’). Based on the studies and the abstraction of these 2 elements I defined rules and parameters for a better performance of the project. Analogies like structural elements, pedestrian flow & daylighting performance were some of the explored concepts that were studied during the process.

“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” Bruce Lee.

Housing in Doctores District

Proyectos 5 B Arch & Urbanism University Iberoamericana, Mexico City 2005.

Professor: Salvador Arroyo. The aim of this project was to propose a system to challenge poverty, overpopulation and pollution in the Doctores Neighborhood. The people in Doctores Neighborhood are now confronted with big increases in density that continues to threaten their open spaces, (which is the most important quality of this area). The Project re purposes an idea to confront overpopulation by the cantilevering of units in to the faรงade. In this way I am creating an interesting architectural intervention and also I am creating more space for more families to live in. The building is created with sustainable technology and recycled materials.

Housing in Queretaro

Proyectos 4 B Arch & Urbanism University Iberoamericana, Mexico City 2005.

Professor: Isaac Broid and Mauricio Rocha. Local competition for Architectural students, First place awarded. (Awarded with the Entrance to the Xochimilco National competition). This Project consisted on making a housing complex in Queretaro for people with low economical resources. A Residential building of 100 apartments with 64 SQ Mts each. The ground floor is designed with a public central plaza which provides interaction and social reunion for the local community. The faรงade generates public spaces on higher levels, and the entire project uses materials that surround the area. The faรงade in the higher levels has movable shutters that protects the apartments from the sun, and gives privacy to the users. It also generates movement to the project, and creates a more flexible & dynamic building.

Arquine Competition International Competition, Mexico City 2009

Individual Participation in the Arquine Competition. The guidelines for this competition were to create an architectural intervention adjacent to the Satelite Towers (a highway sculpture constructed by Mathias Goeritz and Luis Barragรกn, fifty years ago). The program consisted in the development of educational facilities that incorporates: classrooms, studios, workshops & administration offices. Having in mind that most of the competitors would propose a ground level intervention (to respect the towers) I decided that catalyzing the area would be better by the construction of a ramp/building that not only expands the public space and generates social integration, but also has the courage & the intention to become an integral vertical element into our well respected historical towers.

Garden City

National Competition, Mexico 2005

Concurso Oportunidades, Competition for architectural students in Mexico. Awarded Second place. This competition consisted in creating the most intelligent proposal for Mexico City. There wasn’t a specific site or a specific theme. For this competition I started to map all the abandoned industries that are stocked in the middle of the city, and I proposed to use the potential of this sites to create the concept of garden cities. For that I followed the MVRDV BUGA Plant Intervention. “Might be conceivable to construct a park, with no style of its own, where all elements of a garden, all the plants, even ell the styles are loosely linked together? The result will be a true garden neighborhood, not just a number of homes besides a strip of parkland. By positioning park-like elements, sport and recreational elements and buildings in a way that is unexpected and flexible, variety becomes an object in its own right: a “pixel town” where the boundaries between park and building become indistinct and where the building dissolves into a landscape of differences”.

Lilas Corp. Office Building Mixed use Building, Mexico City 2009

Client: Geometrica Developers. Office of Rafael Dana. Design Documents - Construction begins in 2012 Lilas Corporate is a mixed use project in Mexico City. The site is located in the border of Santa Fe and Lilas on a hillside topography with stunning views of the city. The Commercial and Office spaces wrap the perimeter of the site, forming an open courtyard. The project is divided into two interlaced towers that are planed to be constructed in two different phases. The main tower floats on an understated base of long, slender columns. Inside the structure is divided into single and double height spaces. The program is targeted to middle income firms that need to be close to the Santa Fe Financial District. The project is awaiting final permits to start the construction of the first phase.

El Faro de Oriente National Competition, Mexico City 2008

University in Acapulco, â&#x20AC;&#x153;El Faro de Orienteâ&#x20AC;?. Vivienda Emergente Competition. National Competition for architectural Students. This competition consisted in proposing a project based in recycled and prefabricated materials. The site is located in between a favela (slum) and a rich neighborhood that are not integrated. Taking the concept of filter and border I created a project that gives opportunity to both local communities with entertainment cultural activities and education. The Architecture of the project stands that the public space in this area would be the best solution for social integration. The project is constructed with a prefabricated concrete space frame and shipping containers. This intervention of units are not only recycled but also prefabricated, and gives flexibility to future changes. The result of the project was a variety of programs in 6 different buildings, several public plazas, and the access for the Favelas to the university, making them part of our everyday routine.

TRUNK CO. B La propuesta del Artist’s Colony Market analiza los mercados, cómo funcionan en un entorno urbano, como se adaptan a las circunstancias, cómo las reflejan. El diseño utiliza lo que ya existe, genera desarrollo, evolución en zonas y áreas de la red urbana.Creamos una matriz que es como la base de un sistema modular y la distorsionamos, así como la red de la ciudad es distorsionada. Diseñamos la silueta de cinco “baúles” o modulos, con diferentes altezas y superficies, crean la idea de la silueta de una calle urbana. Cada uno puede ser utilizado como se prefiere, puede ser rotado, girado, reflejado, en acuerdo con la matriz, y al mismo tiempo puede ser adaptada a cualquier lugar.

Nuestro objetivo ero lo de crear un sistema fácilmente adaptable al Mercado de cada ciudad y cada estructura. Para hacer en escala nuestro diseño hemos escogido un lugar rodeado por cortafuegos de edificios residenciales e industriales colindantes en Hungría, el séptimo distrito de Budapest.

Introducción:

Me interesa mucho el rol de la “Innovación y Conservación” en la historia del mundo

Conservar sitios históricos y maximizar su potencial para desarrollos futuros. En este caso estoy proponiendo la preservación del Puente de San Francisco-Oakland Bay y desencadenar una economía basada en oportunidades existentes en los alrededores. Teniendo en mente el objetivo de diseñar formas innovadoras de espacio, propongo un sistema de manufactura local y desarrollo en situ que integra una programa de artesanía, agricultura y cultivo vertical. Flexibilidad, adaptabilidad, deploiability y prefabricación, han sido algunos de los conceptos explorados para la creación de esta promenade de arquitectura modular. En este particular contexto, he encontrado un gran potencial por el desarrollo local de comida y artesanía. En mi experiencia personal, he encontrado en esta una región llena de diversidad y creatividad, y en gran necesidad de expresión artística. Contando con una grande cantidad de gente joven, me hizo pensar en la combinación de ambos: cultivo vertical+artes y crafts, para el envisioning del proyecto.

Víctor Hugo Rodríguez Agudelo El módulo de comercio se diseñó pensando en 5 parámetros básicos: transporte, fácil construcción, morfología, flexibilidad, colectividad empresarial y materiales nobles con el medio ambiente. Se propone una construcción en seco de estructura plástica reciclada, que permita un fácil ensamble del modulo para cualquier persona, permitiendo que funcione a partir de 1 módulo, y a medida que se van agrupando, generan diferentes esquemas de comercio, haciéndolo versátil y adaptable a cualquier lugar. Su forma triangular brinda estabilidad y una excelente agrupación; la cubierta en forma de abanico da rigidez, y por sus pliegues permite la canalización de aguas de lluvia; el acabado puede ser diseño de cada artesano.

Design fantasies for obsolete Bay Bridge span

into a futuristic hotel, reachable by ferry.

"There's no reason it can't be transformed into something wondrous, a fusion of nature and the machine," said Frederic Schwartz, a New York architect who spent last fall as the college's Joseph Esherick Visiting Professor in Architecture.

It's a safe bet that most Bay Area residents view the eastern half of the Bay Bridge as an aged structure that can't be replaced soon enough. But a handful of designers see much more, an icon ready for a bold new life – such as a working farm that shares the deck with a hotel. Or a park stretched atop long blocks of housing. Or a hotel shaped like the prow of an ocean liner.

Schwartz, who studied at Cal in the 1960s under Esherick, is best known as a leader of the design team that was a runner-up in the competition to plan the new World Trade Center.

As fantastical as these notions sound, they're products of a recent graduate course at UC Berkeley's College of Environmental Design. And the architects who conceived the semester-long studio say it starts with a valid question: Why demolish one of the Bay Area's most recognizable structures rather than retain at least some of it for public use?

PROPOSITION 16 Pacific Grab of Electric? Secretary of State Debra Bowen on January 29th announced the proposition numbers for five measures that will appear on the June 8, 2010, Statewide Direct Primary Election ballot. Among them is Proposition 16, “New Two-Thirds Vote Requirement for Local Public Electricity Providers. Initiative Constitutional Amendment.” According to the official ballot summary prepared by the Office of the Attorney General (California), the initiative “Requires local governments to obtain the approval of two-thirds of the voters before providing electricity to new customers or expanding such service to new territories if any public funds or bonds are involved. Requires same two-thirds vote to provide electricity through a community choice program if any public funds or bonds are involved. Requires the vote to be in the jurisdiction of the local government and any new territory to be served. Provides exceptions to the jurisdiction of the voting requirements for a limited number of identified projects.” According to Ballotpedia.org, “the initiative reduces the ability of people to choose between private and public utility companies” and will make it “more difficult than it is currently for local entities to form either municipal utilities, or community wide clean electricity districts called Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs).” (Both Marin County and San Francisco plan to rollout community choice aggregation programs this year.) “The CCA program, established in 2002, allows local governments to purchase blocks of power to sell to residents, and to construct municipal electricity generation facilities, which means that cities and counties can become competitors to private utilities.” On February 1st, the Palo Alto “City Council voted unanimously to oppose the PG&E initiative, calling it a ‘power grab’ by the giant utility that could threaten the well-being of the city-owned electric utility which for more than a century has provided power to Palo Alto residents and businesses. Other California cities, including Redding, Roseville, and Lodi, have passed similar resolutions opposing the initiative. The company [PG&E] had initially named the initiative ‘The Taxpayer Right to Vote Act,’ but the state Office of the Attorney

The park will span the full length of the top deck until just after the cantilever, where the old bridge will be cut short to make way for the new bridge. In the space between the existing top and bottom decks will be two stories of residential and commercial space. This is an inversion of the typical street, with the public park and circulation above and the retail and residential below. The park “folds down” below the top deck, funneling light and plants to the areas below.

David Dana—Farming on the Bay Bridge. Urban dwellers are detached from the farming process. Having the opportunity to farm on the former Bay Bridge would be an attraction for locals—and an opportunity to explore and exploit the potential of the site for artificial farming.
