CREATIVE COMPETITION. SPRING 2011. project mentor. John Ross & Abelardo Gonzalez
The project conveys a dialog between the nature and built environment. Reconnecting the two divided neighborhoods in the west side of central Milan by transforming the gap between the railway and river into public playground/ sport center.

MASTER PLAN 0
Stimulating the site with movement by programming 2 indoor gymnasiums & 2 outdoor plazas. Embracing the southern neighborhood with park atmosphere, the river frontier plaza is surfaced with grass field continues to the roof. On the other end of the site, the building has its roof inclined to the concrete paved plaza facing the railway tracks. This introduces frontal conditions to the back of both neighborhoods.

OISTAT Teatre architecture Competition. SPRING 2011. project mentor. Milad Hossainzadeh & Abelardo Gonzalez
Renewing the interior of an existing Gothic church into a performance space. A performance is an endless spirit. From the origins of time the gathering place for celebration and interaction was the theater. First the actors faced the audience, now they are engulfed by it. The ideas of interaction and community reflect in the form, as the stage is wrapped in layers of spectators. With the senses plied and movement unrestricted, the performance evolves into a sensation to be experienced. Surrounded by the artificial and fabricated, a performer most natural and pure is ever present.
[Prague,Czech Republic] area: approx. 270m2 (9m x ~30m)
From decadence to humility, with passion and conviction, to the unexplored, from the foundation of time. Originating with a drop of wine. Embracing the worldly flow. With a movement of ideas. In a circle of equals. An untamed performer. An ancient tradition.

CULTURAL HERITAGE. AUTUMN 2010. project mentor. Ingela P. Skarin & Mats Edström
Malmöhus was originally a minor citadel built in 1434, which brought Norway, Sweden, and Denmark together under Erik of Pomerania, king of Kalmar Union. In the middle Ages, it was a Danish mint. Later in the 19th century, the castle served as a prison. Today Malmöhus is presented to the visitors in its 16th century state and forms part of Malmö Museer. The museum's permanent exhibits focus on history, natural history, and art. The natural history has an extensive collection in its aquarium exhibition. This museum administration is planning on an expansion of the aquarium space to attract local residents. Based on this knowledge, the objective of this project is to increase the accessibility of the museum to the city.

This garden located at the souther edge of Malmรถhus. It is a popular place for the local residents on daily basis during late spring to early autumn.
Concept An additional entrance from the south of the fortification brings the local residents (non-tourists) into the museum atmosphere. 34

URBAN DEVELOPMENT. AUTUMN 2009. project mentor. Michael Williams
The project locates between West 6th St. and West 8th St. along North Smith st., Charlotte, North Carolina. The goal of this project is not only to relocate the Amtrak station, but also to develop the surrounding area of the site. The project concept is to create a social environment at the park area for residents' daily usage. The building itself situates on West 7th St. that runs across N. Smith St. The advantage of this location is its elevation difference that enables the engagement of the park area and the coffee shop without interrupting the function of the train station. Moreover, this location is the end point from the view into W. 7th St., which allows the pedestrians to spot the station.

Over time, the size and number of buildings in the area has changed significantly. Apartments and larger homes have become the norm in the surroundings of the site. This has a visual effect as well as an immediate influence on the site's availability.
