PIER 27: AMERICA’S CUP PAVILION
San Francisco, CA Program: Cruise Terminal, Event Seating, Team Mooring, Exhibition Hall, Foredeck Club Pier 27 seeks to re-imagine the pier typology of San Francisco Bay through a total transformation in program and form. The pier is redefined as a massive programmed park situated along the Embarcadero – a continuous 3-mile public armature that links major nodes of activity and cultural landmarks in the Bay area. The site will allow the pier to become a public pavilion and a key open space geared towards the accommodation of accessible and flexible public space, unobstructed views, and heavy boat traffic – including a terminal supporting the arrivals and departures of mega-cruise ships.

HAMILTON COLLEGE DORMITORIES
Hamilton College, Clinton, New York Program: Dormitories, Classrooms, Reading Room, Cafe, Auditorium, Amphitheatre, Adminstration Building The project, envisioned as a public armature extended off of an existing pathway, seeks to establish a formal link between the traditional campus plan to the north and the natural terrain of the root glen to the south. Issues of environmental performance, productive landscaping and program adjacencies are pursued in order to achieve a holistic, contextual response to the demands of the program. DISPERSED

LA CITTÀ DENTRO LA CITTÀ
Fortezza da Basso, Florence, Italy Program: Architecture + Engineering Studios, Faculty Offices, Gallery & Review Space, Exhibition Hall, Reading Room, Auditoriums, Public Gardens A large scale urban intervention set within the confines of Sangallo’s Fortezza da Basso - a 34,000 square meter micro-city erected under the rising threat of surrounding political upheavals. Conceptually, the question becomes: How to propose a public, democratic institution while preserving the qualities of a dominant, medieval fortification?

THE POST-STANDARD BUILDING
Syracuse, New York Program: Flexible Office Space, Administrative + Executive Offices, Archive, Winter Garden, Cafe, Exhibition Hall, Conference Rooms (Collaborated with Cameron Cunneyworth) The Syracuse Post-Standard project is one that calls for comprehensive and sustainable transformation of a solid, concrete mass to a transparent and flexible office building. Its site - sitting along the northern edge of Clinton Square - encourages the realization of new public programs, including an 8,000 square foot winter garden that breathes life into the office interior and serves as a natural buffer between the office building and the press room of Block B to the north.

Early diagrams were developed to idenitify the primary environmental strategies that would define the architectural form of each scheme (scheme 1 of 3 shown) as well as its performance. The simplicity of the diagram is crucial in understanding the range of design features, including strategies for solar gain, solar access, ventilation, and insulation.
As a fundamental stage in the design process, architectural drawings were developed as a means of communicating each schemeâ€™s design in a holistic form. Within each set of constructed drawings are refined plans, sections and elevations. The drawings, calling attention to details such as wall thickness, dimension and materiality allow each scheme to be evaluated through a cross-disciplinary approach.
