As part of my first studio we were required to think “What’s the most minimalists and portable way to cook food” and we came up with the idea to build our project in train containers. This will help the environment at the same time since this structures once they are out of use they just work as waste. So the idea was to create a nice Zen restaurant that could move all across the country, serving food and bringing happiness and relaxation to the people that use the space, and the ones that works in it.

The Public Bathroom

As part of my second studio we were required to analyze Queretaro Public transportation and to create a module that works as a Public Bathroom and as well as a Bus Stop. Another requirement was to make it a huge billboard and to have really attractive colors and design. So the Idea was to create an organic shape that was going to be placed all over the city and to map the locations of these new bus stops.

MEXICO 2010: Cultural Center Considering the Plaza as a great representative of the Mexican culture and folklore we tried to reinterpret its role and relevance in the design of a building that will serve to commemorate the bicentennial of the Mexican Independence and the centenary of the revolution Designed for the main purpose of creating a space in which to promote the union and reunion of the Mexican people as they identify with the arts and culture of their country. Taking as his main source of inspiration “the Mexico of the future that doesn’t forget its roots� and with the aim of providing a memorable experience merging contemporary architectural design with quality cultural spaces

Model

At the end of the semester as usual we create a model of our project. But this time around one of the requirements was to use “advance technology� for its fabrication. We decided to use a 3d printer for the project, and sheets of wood cut by laser for the site. For the cover we thermoformed it to adapt to the project and to give color and texture. 15

As part of my last studio at Monterrey Tech we faced a new challenge, travel to another city (Chicago in my case) to develop a community center for a different culture with diverse problems. The Bridgeport Community Center, will be a building at 35th and Halsted, that its purpose is to imitate what the Center on Halsted building did at Boystown (Waveland and Halsted), that brought security and stability to the area. Bridgeport is one of the oldest communities in Chicago and today is facing a lot of problems thanks to its multicultural occupation. So having a center for the community seems like the right answer. Also in the space where the building is projected there is a Theater that has been part of the Bridgeport community for more than 70 years. And one of the aspects of this project is to make it work the Ramova Theater again

the BARGE: Montrose Harbor Yatch Club

P3

As part of my first studio at IIT, I was not required to face design in a different culture entirely, but to face a new way of construction. The purpose of this studio was to create a portable Yatch Club that could move around Montrose Harbor and its surroundings. In order to do that the project was required to be built on 3 Barges, and it was required that the three of them could interact with each other. Also as part of the architectural program of the project, it was required that the place had classrooms, a restaurant, a bar and more. And that’s how, the project use a series of transformations that allows the building to behave in a different way depending on the season. It can change from a completely close to completely open making it and interactive building.

Dance 101

As part of one of my last studios at IIT we were assigned to design a dance studio that full fills four dance styles in different levels and with different elements.

Location

Dance 101 is that, a building in which each dance is classified as a different atmosphere and where they are connected through a stair that change form depending on the rhythm of the dance. The studio also works as an art sculpture at Printers Row, being a building contained within a building (the transparent curtain wall) Dance 101 creates interesting views for the city and a nice place to be.

Each space at Dance 101 means something different. From the private and sensual enclosure of the tango with no natural light and a sublime play of lights and shadows, to the openness and flexibility of the Modern Ballet it what makes the building so special. P4

One of the key aspects of the project was also to show sublime changes that can affect drastically something, and that’s how spaces like the Tribal Dance studio and the Classic Ballet one can change forms / environment at will making them diverse spaces. In general each of the spaces at Dance 101 was taken to the last detail to create what I hope in the future will become a landmark.

Fall 2012_ West Whitney Museum of Art

“I want to meet a guy named Art. I'd take him to a museum, hang him on the wall, criticize him, and leave.” ― Jarod Kintz, I Want

“Real museums are places where Time is transformed into Space.” ― Orhan Pamuk, The Museum of Innocence

Summer & Fall 2011_ RAMOVAtion: IPRO 364

“The art historians are the real wreckers of art, Reger said. The art historians twaddle so long about art until they have killed it with is killed by the twaddle of the art historians. My God, I often think, sitting here on the settee while the art historians are driving the past me, what a pity about all these people who have all art driven out of them, driven out of them for good, by these very art histo historians’ trade is the vilest trade there is, and a twaddling art historian, but then there are only twaddling art historians, deserve with a whip, chased out of the world of art, Reger said, all art historians deserve to be chased out of the world of art, because art h real wreckers of art and we should not allow art to be wrecked by the art historians who are really art wreckers. Listening to an art sick, he said, by listening to an art historian we see the art he is twaddling about being ruined, with the twaddle of the art historian ruined. Thousands, indeed tens of thousands of art historians wreck art by their twaddle and ruin it, he said. The art historians are art, if we listen to an art historian we participate in the wrecking of art, wherever an art historian appears art is wrecked, that is the ― Thomas Bernhard, Old Masters

The Whitney Museum is moving to the High Line in New York and lacks space for rotating exhibitions. Our task was to research museums, and more specifically, art museums in the New York area. Gain an understanding for the area and what sorts of people visit museums, as well as how they enter and circulate through them. Finally, using student-created case studies, show processes such as circulation and program in different schemes for the West Whitney. All of this in order to publish a book containing all our research and that will contribute to ourselves as designers.

Socializers

Appreciators

Often or always choose to visit with others

Look for artists by name, and come to view specific paintings

Correlate the visit with a specific “life” event

Exhibit strong opinions about art

Socializers enjoy having “props” to enhance their visit. Facilitated types of interaction encourage discussion both in the moment and after the activity.

Appreciators are looking for more transparency in the collection and display of art work and ask specific questions like why some artists are represented over others.

Inspirationseekers

Browsers

Visit museums alone

Come to the museum out of convenience or to see the building itself

Find the environment is as important as the art for relaxation purposes

Seek out relevance in art works that are familiar

Inspiration-seekers already enjoy the beautiful spaces and collection. Further ways to enhance their experience would be to include more inspiring content and ways to engage with the artwork.

Browsers need a more accessible and manageable museum experience. Browsers don’t plan their visits accordingly and “get too full” by the time they reach the 3rd floor.

2. Some care more about a piece of art than the gallery as a whole: We noticed one individual only walked through half of the gallery and then left. We assumed it might have been out of boredom, but later we also decided it could have been that he was only interested in a particular piece or collection within the gallery itself.

3. Dead corners push people away: It really appeared when there was a “dead corner” or a corner lacking stimuli, people seemed awkward and were very quick to walk to the nearest exit and enter a new gallery or on to the next work of art. If they were with a group, the group itself didn’t seem to be as affected by the bare areas, but still brushed past them quickly as to avoid a lull in discussion topics.

3 sec

2. Some art takes longer to look at than other art: We noticed that visitors are different, some like to stop and look at art for minutes while others prefer a quick glance. However, there were some painting which drew in all audiences, and they often looked, walked, and then looked again. This might suggest that this particular piece had value in viewing from different angles and distances, but speaks more congruently to the similar patterns of viewers.

5 sec

Observations:

10 min

1. Museum visitors spend more time with a complex layout: When visitors have more complex paths around a gallery, they’re more likely to stop and take time at a painting. We observed this in comparison to the patters of visitors to the square galleries in the Cleveland Museum of Art. It seems that people not only slowed down to allow others to pass, but the strange areas created in front of the art sometimes pulled visitors to go explore them. This would go against the conventional desire for big empty rooms if you want visitors to wander longer, which could conflict with the New Whitney’s boasted column-free gallery.

Summer & Fall 2011 Background The Theater

The Ramova Theater was built in 1929 in historic Bridgeport, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Chicago, Illinois. The theater closed down in 1986 and the City of Chicago obtained the property in 2001 in a state of disrepair.

The Halsted Corridor

The Halsted Corridor is located in one of the more transitional parts of the Bridgeport neighborhood, roughly between 31st St. on the North and 38th St. on the South on Halsted St. This is an area with just as many empty store fronts as new condo buildings. The business offerings along this corridor are mainly focused towards the practical needs of bridgeport residents, such as laundromats, tailors and family restaurants, but is struggling to find its character.

Ra

Ten

Previous Semesters The 2011 Spring and Summer semesters both evaluated wants and needs of the Halsted corridor community through surveys as well as researched case studies of similar theaters. The Summer team did a thorough cost estimate and renovation development was focused on more diagrammatic plans based on programmatic elements. Energy options were considered but not decided on.

Save the Ramova Organization

The Save the Ramova Organization (SRO) was founded in 2005 by Maureen Sullivan and Rob Warmowski, who were raised near the Ramova and have personal connections with the theater. SRO’s mission is to gain community and public officials’ involvement to revitalize the theater.

Objectives Product Design

Energy Estimation Part of determining overall costs for the Ramova involves energy modeling

Optimizing the number of seats would greatly increase the revenue stream of the theater by allowing a larger number of ticket sales

Potential Parking Creating parking spaces would enhance the theater experience by providing that amenity to patrons of the Ramova. Using the parking for other uses when there is not a show (i.e. a Sox game, other businesses) would generate further revenue.

Future Goals

Developed a vision for the Ramova experience and the inherent value that experience has

Define the Ramova experience and demonstrate its cost effectiveness

A more developed plan that includes an extension to the existing building and an occupiable green roof Optimized amount of seats available to allow for more ticket sales

Finalize the plans for the expansion and the form of the building based on previous solar and site analysis Further develop green roof functions Investigate methods of incorporating new structural elements into the existing building Explore further opportunities to enhance the experience of the Ramova

Located potential parking to improve the experience for theater patrons and increase revenue Constructed strategies to connect the theater with local businesses by providing dinner and show packages and other deals, as well as ticket sales at other locations in the community such as grocery stores and laundromats Gauged the viability of several energy sources and learned that solar income presents the highest potential for the Ramova’s location With the aid of a theater restoration professional, analyzed the electricity needs and generation at the Ramova and concluded that a solar skin would provide a cost-effective and sustainable source of electricity

Propose physical links between the Ramova and the Halsted Corridor Develop parking schemes in the spaces identified Reevaluate potential energy sources and solar strategies that can be employed

Tensile Structure

WW

As of my last structural class, we were required to create a Tensile Structure with all the knowledge obtained during our last four classes. The goal was to design a structure fully calculated and then build that structure at a scale. In order to do that the class divided in teams of three people that would form the shape and build the model.

Branding

P

One of the biggest pleasures of working as a Graphic Designer is the ability to create creative logos to introduce and sell a product.

o

A logo no only works as an element of identity, but as a symbol of recognition and first impression, so been able to work on some of them and then see them on display is been one of the most amazing experiences ever.

Things.Architects.Say

AW

SA

Architecture has teach me during the last six years that architects has a really peculiar vocabulary and way to speak. We observe the world in a different way and for that same reason we need to find a way to describe an urge or what we want to say. So is how phrases like “erection site”, “nailing studs”, “pipe penetrations”, “deep grinding”, and many others change from sound dirty to be architectural useful and correct. But architects are curious beings, and for that same reason other more common phrases, that only in an architect life can’t be a signal of craziness, emerge and things like “but is only 3 a.m. in the morning” or “do I have ink on my face?” becomes part of our understanding world. And the main fact that now I can laugh about the phrases college of architecture teach me, is how I came with the idea of create this project.

Video Work for Classes As part of 3 visual training classes that I took at IIT, I was able to work with my other passion that is film making to create little pieces of art to show on class. Begin able to work in video and sound editing help me to learn a little bit more of image composition and it was a really fun experiment and a nice thing to try.
