MICRO UNIT AXO

VILLA GRAND COCONUT GROVE, FL MICRO-HOUSING APARTMENT ALTERNATIVE This project addresses the need for more affordable housing in the increasingly populated urban district of Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood, in the form of micro housing units. By using the vernacular architectural type as a basis, the issue of sustainability is fulfilled using forms of natural ventilation, including wing walls, evaporative cooling and rainwater collection. The project creates a fabric building that enhances and solidifies Coconut Grove’s character, with ample ground floor commercial space and a modernized economic parking system.

WYNWOOD MARKET This project involved the adaptive re use of a 1940s industrial warehouse into a public market and culinary school, with a complete construction document set with partner camille cortes. The site included an existing warehouse that is to be rennovated and revitalized to house a food market and culinary school in the Wynwood district of Miami. This design focuses on creating an extension to the existing warehouse while preserving its form. The new addition intersects with the existing and creates a strong horizontal statement. This new extension is lifted above ground level, creating a large inviting courtyard space which attracts nearby foot traffic into the large market space. Classrooms for the culinary school overlook this courtyard space and is interconnected to the market via wide covered walkways that receive natural ventilation and sunlightby means of a screen wall facade.

KIOSK Winner of the Design Build Award, this food kiosk design was built with sustainability and portability in mind. By using an almost completely wooden panel construction, the pieces can be disassembled and compacted, and thus easily transport. The awnings act as shutters, with all the pieces folding for security purposes. The screen walls provide air circulation throughout. This project was selected by the firm Rammos Constructions to be built on site at their offices in Wynwood.

FORMA URBIS ROMAE REDUX ROME, ITALY The objective of this project was to return the original map of Rome back to the Imperial Forum. This includes the reinterpretation of the Temple of Peace Map Room while also preserving the existing walls and foundation. The project uses local material and concentrates on being open air and accessible to the public. It makes odes to both the classical proportion along with the Fascist style which dominated Rome in the 1930s during the installation of the Via Delle Fori Imperiali. The Forma Urbis Map, created in the year 50 AD during the Ancient Roman Empire, measures 40’ x 60’. This building houses a reconstruction of the map on the east wall, while preserving the original wall which was later converted into a church facade.


The exisiting pieces that were re-discovered are on display in the cases on the ground floor, along with the gallery space located on the archaelogoical level.
