north end childrenâ€™s heart hospital boston, massachusetts The dismantling of the elevated central artery and creation of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy greenway introduced a new set of opportunities for the city of Boston. The city now has the ability to reconnect the downtown neighborhoods through the use of tree-lined paths, to convert what had been the backs of buildings to new civic frontages, and to activate the parks with new users and activities. The North End Childrenâ€™s Heart Hospital has been designed as a response to current conditions but also prepares for future development along the greenway. The entry piece respects existing building height and acts as the hospitalâ€™s civic face. The communal gathering space is located at the crown of the entry portion, allowing for views otherwise not possible at ground level.

122 west broughton street savannah, georgia in 1997, the kress building was one of the many abandoned department stores which marked the major intersections of broughton street. with the arrival of the gap, a basement restaurant and residential units, the kress has served as the catalyst for a renaissance of broughton street. the facade is one of the most distinctive left from broughton street’s heydey in the late 19th and 20th centuries. since the kress operated as a popular five and dime store from 1923 through 1997, the builing remains a very well known landmark to the local population. savannah’s history is rich in storytelling. ghost stories, scandals and local literature all play a vital role. using word of mouth as a catalyst for an adaptive re-use building, in-residence writers will reside within the three main corners of the building, listening to the stories of savannah’s people as well as partnering with apiring writers. the new kress will keep the existing facade yet incorporate a coffee bar and bookstore by day and a wine bar “confessional” by night. the back-lit confessional addition invites tourists and natives of savannah to anonymously tell their stories of heartbreak, happiness, and history.

fountain axis rome, italy the investigation of an ancient papal processional route acted as a catalyst for an intervention within the city. the series of changes resulted in an extention of the “fountain line” running from janniculum hill to campo dei fiori. this axis beings with the fontana acqua paola on the hill, continues to the tiber river, and passes through the fontana del masherone at the rear entrance of palazzo farnese. the line crosses the palazzo’s twin fountains, finally terminating at a single building withing campo dei fiori. in negotiation with the urban context, a re-proposed building was offered to complete the water axis the intervention responds to the typical courtyard typology of rome. first, a threshold, second a courtyard, and third the garden. the entry of the building is comprised of a full water facade which spills from a pool at the top of the building. the sound of the water can be heard over the piazza’s daily activities. entering behind the wall of water, one is greeted by a dark and solemn threshold. at the center light filters through a glass bottomed swimming pool, reached by a central spiraling staircase. beyond is a hand washing fountain signifying the relationship of the axis.
