URBAN PAVILION FALL 2012


URBAN PAVILION FALL 2012 | PROF. DANIEL SULLIVAN

Beginning the project I started studying formal systems through different methods of model making. After many iterations of models, my formal system consisted of linear elements combined with curved lines. Formally this is considered a swept surface. This urban pavilion created a transparent but protective barrier that encourages pedestrians to walk through it. The linear elements create this beautiful light effect that adds more of a experience for the pedestrians. The pavilion can also be placed in many different locations due to the different scales it can become.

ANNEX CONNECTOR SPRING 2013 | PROF. BEN PETERSON

The concept was to create more of an awareness of the students work by creating a connection between the public,the students and the work. Approaching the problem I was interested in the idea of joining, separating and re-joining. I created a system of lines, which were two feet wide each, to control the circulation. The more lines joined together became public circulation and the less lines joined together created private circulation. To control program I began splitting the pathways apart and rejoining them, the void created in the middle became program. To bring the public into the connection I oriented the public program towards the apartments near the site, which influenced circulation and program space. As you ascend higher in the connection you reach the more private program, which becomes only for the students. To create that awareness of the students work, the whole connection became a gallery to display the student’s work throughout and along the circulation paths.

MARITIME CENTER FALL 2013 | PROF. ANN BORST

When visiting East Boston’s water front I noticed a clear separation between the industrial side and recreational side. Beginning the design, I broke that barrier and wanted my architecture to become the intersection point of both the industrial and recreational. When thinking about program I began to create relationships revolving around the ship building space. I desired there to be a visual, acoustical, and physical connection in spaces like the woodshop and storage room. While spaces like the cafe, gallery, and lobby would only have a visual connection. There would be small moments where the people would visually and acoustically experience the ship building space. That experience would only occur when the recreational components of my design intersect with the industrial components. That space in between was the connection between both industrial and recreational. It was achieved by creating an observation deck that spanned across the ship building space but also connecting different recreational programs.

CAMPUS CONNECTOR SPRING 2014 | PROF. INGRID STRONG

Visiting the site at Wellesley college our goal was to enhance th connection between the Lulu Chow Wang building and the quad. The site had this idea of layers where roads would intersect with the drumlins which created these islands of land. So beginning the project I began studying the layers and understanding how I can incorporate the idea of layers to frame the students view from each side of the campus. I created models that helped me control and manipulate how I want to orient and direct these frames. Through many iterations of these framed models I then translated the idea of frames into terraces. These terraces began to zone and create these layers on the site that guided the student to each side of the campus. The orientation of the terrace were oriented towards the meadow to enhance the students view as they move from the Lulu Chow Wang building and the quad.

PLUS/MINUS SPRING 2014 | PROF. INGRID STRONG

Plus/Minus lies adjacent to DeFilippo Park, and climbs the tallest of the hills in the North End. Rooted in the act of peeling positives to create negatives, the public space interprets the dualistic relationship of form and space through gestures of enclosure and binding circulation. Built mound-like landscape rises to, in the northwest, reveal inhabitable space in a cafĂŠ, storage space, and restrooms. In the east, they rise to meet the road, activating the streetscape and turning a simple passing-through space to a neighborhood destination. The raised landscape intrinsically creates bordered slots of semi-open space. These spaces provide platforms for performance in the northwest and public greenery in the east. A back-and-forth climbing staircase naturally traverses and tethers positive and negative, bleeding into the primary design and even providing seating space for performance areas.
