Foreword: Studio has presented a new meaning to what design and architecture is to me as an individual. It has shifted all my prior understanding of what design is and has revealed to me distinctive ways of perceiving the world around us, whether visually or philosophically. During my four years at Florida International University’s School of Architecture (SOA) and Georgia Tech’s College of Architecture, I have become aware and have grown in my knowledge in concept, form, theory and structure. As time continues, my passion for design only grows stronger. My interest in art, imagination and creativity stemmed as a child and became the foundation that has motivated me and fueled my aspirations to design. Additionally, my inclination for art and design was more influenced and encouraged by my creative and freethinking parents. My prior view of what an architectural career was altered only after my first week at FIU’s SOA. I had pictured myself producing generic plans of houses and simplistic concrete buildings, but that was far from the case. My new experience has opened my mind to the endless ways of designing, while upholding a sense of rationality and function. During my studies abroad in Genoa, Italy, my exposure to a new culture cultivated a new approach to design, specifically in designing buildings to affect the urban environment. Studying abroad also allowed me to learn from the past and see how it has influenced our present and ongoing design. At Georgia Tech my computer software knowledge expanded to new realms. I was exposed to different architectural softwares, but also fabrication softwares. New horizons opened up while I was learning how to generate virtual environments and at the same time learning how to convert 3D designs from the virtual world into fabricated pieces. My intention is to become a designer and to place my heart and passion into my work. I have chosen to continue my studies by pursuing a Master of Architecture because architecture is a means of creating designs that open up possibilities to improve societies and provide for its locals. I experienced a clear example of this during my last trip to Medellin, Colombia, where I visited “la Biblioteca España” by Giancarlo Mazzanti. Its design was equally as impressive comparing to the history of its area. My parents described to me that since their childhoods that area was one of the poorest slums of Medellin, it was a haven for terrible crimes and gangs. Because of the construction of this library and the cable cars leading directly to the library for public transportation, this area and its people have been reprogrammed. It has given the local children and adolescents a chance and motivation to learn. They have become more knowledgeable and have been given a chance to make a better life for themselves through means of education. In addition, I hope to visit and learn more from others around the world. I strongly believe that new experiences promote shared learning between a society and architecture in order to facilitate and improve daily life. It is because of this that I am determined to excel in the field of design. I am to discover truths within shapes, forms, space, theories and technologies. I am driven to create innovative and influential designs. I aim to maintain a uniqueness, and stretch limits, if not beyond.

Diffused Crystalization: In Collaboration with: Aaron Coffman. The project was with the intentions of participating in the Evolo Skyscraper Competition. It was an investigation in Biomimecry, with the focus on crystals. A tower was generated in the form of cells that behave like plaza squares, but organized in a vertical fashion.

Acting as a void in the clusters, the courtyard is in itself a solid space. Creating areas for individuals to socialize; whether it is for “walking in the park�, shopping, growing crops, or social gathering.

Process of Design: Upon determining the site, we took into account the corridor views established by the large metropolis aligned with the rivers. With a slow manipulation of the overall volume in concentration to those views, they were then altered and shifted from views alongs the river to views of the city at a higher elevation. Then formulate localized communal areas for each residential community.

SCRIPTING / FALL 2010

18


Scripting Course/Voronoi: This course was based on the study of Rhino scripting. The intentions was to learn the basics of creating algorithmic computations that would lead to a geometric design that could possibly be incorporated into architecture. With the basics learned, each student needed to generate their own script that would be unique and follow a taught topic. 19

The Urban Micro-City

living-working-resting: “The dwelling is a micro-city in and from which we work, shop and rest.” -Metapolis Dictionary of Advanced Architecture

The design project was an analysis primarily on the idea of dwellings and the modularities that can form from them. Through investigations on different forms of housing, different experments was explored from ‘shotgun’ housing to ‘back-to-back’ housing to ownhouses and etc. Combined with other programs, the idea was to create a location that could reincorporate public domain and allow the urban settings to infiltrate the site. With the manipulation of the landscape to create a pedestrian avenue that traverses the site and invites the inhabitants of the city to play and circulate through the location. With the interplay of elevation changes a row of townhouses is formed, and the landscape is sculpted to create small terraces for people rest and explore.
