Borderless Civic Annex & Immigration Center Houston, TX Instructor Carlos JimĂŠnez

Border- less is a challenge to the typical civic annex building. In the normative condition, mono-functional annex buildings serve an administrative purpose which serves members of the public without contributing to a greater civic good. These projects are held within the public psyche as places of frustration- an image which is often compounded by architectural design. The project responds to these stereotypes with a series of programmatic and spatial moves to synthesize a provocation which challenges the definition of public. The proposal establishes a hard edge as a buffer against Memorial Drive and a sinuous edge which opens toward Buffalo Bayou. The intensive landscape is enveloped by the building, as it recedes to embrace a large, existing oak tree and create a courtyard. Two bars of service programs are used to organize the more fluid public programs, which are zoned toward the park. The mediating space between becomes an area for art display, circulation, waiting, and interaction. Floor plates slide past one another to echo the geologic qualities of the Bayou. The resulting cantilevers provide shade and protection to spaces below. Spaces flow into one another, visually and physically, and are constantly engaged with the landscape.

Happy Together Urban Housing Houston, TX Instructor Reto Geiser The proposal provides collective housing as an alternative to the suburban house. Individual dwellings are stacked vertically into “urban villas� which are connected by shared circulation cores. These villas are distributed across the site, building a city within the neighborhood of Montrose. The target demographic for these units are families. Families take many forms, and the units are designed to accommodate a variety of sizes and users. Elements of single family dwellings are translated into the villas. The traditional front porch is shared between units to provide areas of interaction. Shared circulation cores promote engagement and connectivity. Large areas of open space extend the Menil park toward Richmond Street, while providing residents with a collective front yard. The car is separated from dwellings into collective garages, which are submerged and covered with recreation areas. This separation encourages residents to walk through the complex, increasing engagement and awareness. Large exterior open spaces and green streets/ pathways are provided to enhance community life and connect the site to the surrounding neighborhood. Through the addition of density, affordability, public space, and a mix of residents to ensure active street life, the project responds to many of the issues confronting Houston’s housing market today.

Variously Enclosed Visitor Center Roosevelt Island, New York Instructor Michelle Chang Collaborators Mark Bavoso Gavin Brown For contemporary architecture, the roof is as much a legal as it is a material construct. According to the Cornell Law School, buildings are legally defined as enclosed structures that have a roof supported by columns, walls, or cantilevers. Insurance companies and courts have variously defined the roof, whose most basic definition can be surmised as a permanent building element which protects the building from weather related risks. The contemporary roof is increasingly defined in code as a lamination of increasingly immaterial planes and ‘proofs’: waterproof, vapor proof, puncture proof, fire proof; laminates of decking, insulation, membranes, shingles, and finishes. The New York Building code defines the roof reductively, in legal terms, as an element of maximally laminated, minimal thickness oriented towards the capture of gross rentable space, and thus assumes easy distinctions between front and back, interior and exterior, conditioned and unconditioned, built environment and ‘nature.’ The formal device that we use to pervert the domestic roof appropriately comes from within: the dormer lies at the slippage between roof convention and code. Loosely codified as “a vertical projection from the roof plane,” a Google search reveals a more precise conventional understanding of the dormer as, topologically, a vertically projected deformation upwards in a continuous building envelope, used to recapture enclosed interior space from the slope of the roof. We exploit the mismatch between code and convention in the definition of the dormer as a generative device for spaces that pervert assumptions about the roof and enclosure—functional and thin—enshrined elsewhere in those codes and conventions.

2018 | Graduate Project

Dots & Lines UCLA Student Housing & Education Hub Los Angeles, California Instructor Neil Denari The project problematizes the tower and bridge typology. This project aims to blur the distinction between tower and bridge by approaching the massing as a cohesive whole. Rather than articulating bridges and towers, the project sets up a system of vertical and lateral connections. These connections tie the masses together spatially without reading as independent elements. The program inside blurs between housing and public spaces, and these ambiguous relationships are intensified with shared vertical circulation. Cylindrical masses are anchored by a grid of cores, which sets up the organizational logic of the project. These masses are then distributed vertically to create gaps of shared spaces in the sky. These gaps are further accentuated by the carving of the cylindrical forms to produce a mega-graphic which ties the bundled masses together visually. The resulting form is ambiguous in its reading, as bundled towers become synonymous with lateral connection, and public space is translated from the ground plane to the sky.

Stalac- tile Digital Fabrication & Temporary Installation UT Arlington School of Architecture Arlington, TX

Team Members Hunter Freeman, Omid Farzadpour, Cameron Toms, Kevin Genarie, Julio Leal, Iman Amini Supervisor Bradley Bell The main objective of the installation was to allow gravity to activate the geometry of a single tile at a local scale. When these individual tiles are combined, they create a surface which would reflect the gravitational forces which cause the activation. This mode of operation allows for the synthesis of inherent forces, which are not controlled, with the precision of forces. The design and materiality of the tiles were chosen to create an ephemeral effect, to create a lightness and transparency which suggests an effortless combination of these reactionary forces.

Art House Urban Housing & Sculpture Garden Dallas, TX Instructor Bang Dang The brief was to design four dwelling units for a semi- urban site in Dallas. The residences must be designed for the intent of living and displaying private artwork. The site is split for the viewing of art. A public gallery is provided which faces the street. A semi-private sculpture garden in the middle of the site is enclosed by two volumes which contain dwelling units. Each unit is designed with an integrated gallery for displaying artworks, as well as visual access to the sculpture garden. Materials are selected to elevate the buildings to art objects themselves. Cor-ten steel adorns the public gallery, while cast in place concrete faces the sculpture garden. Reflective glazing creates a mirrorlike facade for the larger mass, and provides a visual barrier between the units and those passing through the garden. Hanging sculpture is displayed in the public stairwell, while a monumental steel sculpture occupies the garden. A quiet reflecting pool provides a transition between the ground plane and the cast-in-place concrete garden wall.

Farm to Table CAPPA Café Competition Arlington, TX Team Members Hunter Freeman Victoria Cooper Award Commendation for Outstanding Proposal The CAPPA Café competition is an open “ideas” competition for a new farm to table cafe in the existing UTA School of Architecture building. Space planning, materials, and branding were requested in the brief. Adjacent to an open courtyard space, the proposal called for seating, a coffee bar, and laptop working space. Adjacent to the café, a hallway would be re-purposed to become a gallery to exhibit student work. The competition was one month long, and students were encouraged to work in interdisciplinary teams. Final submission included a 36”x 48” presentation board, accompanied by a one-page explanation of the proposal.

Idea Primary School Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documentation Dallas, TX Supervisor Brian Nelson, Associate Principal, HKS Team Members Leo Gonzalez, HKS Matthew Hare, HKS This project is an addition to an existing primary school. The objective was to design a new wing with classrooms, administration, and shared public spaces for students and faculty. The design creates a sheltered courtyard between the two buildings. An existing color palette is extended, while stark lines outline and define the entry. Schematic design was developed through sketches and modeling. A digital model was completed in Revit for construction. Final construction completed in 2017. E. . LVD RB PU

Freehand Drawing Design Communications & Travel Sketches Arlington, TX Rome, IT Instructor Dustin Wheat A foundation of basic hand- drawing skills is built in the beginning of the architecture program at UT Arlington. These courses teach technical skills through free- hand drawing, drafting, and sketching. These exercises are designed to teach thinking and seeing through a kinetic sensibility, and develop a confidence and mastery of physical mediums before moving on to digital tools later in the program.

These works include travel sketches, many of which were completed on site during the Study Abroad in Italy program.
