[01] The Arc in collaboration with Daniel Han The Arc redefines traditional higher education by providing students, community members, and mentors a space to dream and re-imagine society while providing necessary resources and tools to test out and develop ideas. Students are assigned a family and home base based on personality, skill, and interests to provide a sense of belonging. Through a series of connections and shared spaces, these families are united as a whole to create a diverse and collaborative community.

A Day in the Life Diagram

A Day in the Life represents how students spend their time and interact with eachother in the space. We zoomed into the pods to better understand a day in the life of a student and how different kinds of furniture can encourage collaboration.

[02] The Drum Set in the urban context of San Francisco, the Drum brings together a concert hall, restaurant, apartments, and recording studios through a centralized courtyard. The main hall sits inside a steel drum that can be seen through a translucent facade. The six stories of heavy concrete provides a backdrop for the transparent entrance while creating a public and exciting space in the front with a private environment in the back.

[03] Inside Out Inside Out is a homeless center located in the progressive neighborhood Nørrebro in Copenhagen, Denmark that integrates temporary housing with an open kitchen for the homeless and community. The building takes the traditional exterior rooms and balconies and pushes rooms to the interior while keeping exterior balconies, creating a central core of rooms with room extensions and common spaces to encourage guests to leave their rooms and interact with others.

The open atrium and operable windows on each floor allow for natural ventilation into the building. The open atrium also provides stack ventilation, improving the overall indoor air quality.

chiller

Due to the warm climate, heating mostly applies only in the winter. Most of the heat comes from solar gain absorbed by the floors. When needed, a radiant heating system is provided through a HVAC system.

Cooling is achieved through natural and stack ventilation. Overhangs provide shading for the warm summer sun. AC is also provided throughout the building for extra cooling when needed.

True silence does not exist. We are constantly being bombarded with sounds whether we are aware of it or not. This chair offers a quiet, intimate space where one can find a moment of relief from this noisy society. Sit cross-legged, read a book, talk with a friend, or take a nap for a moment of relief.
