framework: site analysis After extensive site analysis, three major goals were achieved in each rendition of our project: connect the wall to the site below with a direct path, block traffic noise and direct sunlight, and maximize ideal views for student use. The footprint of our building is arranged around the solution to the first and most important goal-the path, or scalinata, from the top of the site to the bottom. This footprint is set to seven meters wide to guarantee enough living space for dormitories while maximizing usable outdoor space.

framework: master plan

framework: metamap The master plan and proposal were completed in a parallel with a mapping project of the districts and neighborhoods of Manhattan and Brooklyn, to better understand the characteristics of each, especially in comparison with Gowanus. The resulting map is a display of how unique each part of the city is discovered in terms of type, and how this can be experienced through a walking tour of the city.

This studio began with a two and a half week, intensive study of the Gowanus neighborhood in Brooklyn. With collaboration from five groups of students, we completed a master plan proposal for the superfund site. My partners and I focused on renewing the canal in a more user friendly manner, implementing green spaces, rain gardens, wider pathways, and maximum accessibility.

This mixed-use building includes new offices for the GCCDC, a learning center for 3rd and 4th grade students, a Gowanus Canal Museum, mixed use-offices, and a green roof. The proposal sits on the corner of Smith and Huntington underneath the supports for the highest point above ground on the New York Subway. The woven pathways lead the visitor throughout the site, from the corner of Smith and 9th, to the entrance, to the canal access, and to the top of the green roof. The large scale stair access provides a seating area for gathering that can be used as an outside classroom or performance.

framework: spider web This conceptual project was based on the narrative of a spider web and the spaces created inside. The final space is based upon three moments in the web. The center-where all elements together, the detail-each spider web is unique to its creator, and connection to it’s surroundings-both the most important and most vulnerable part of the web. The final door.window.stair space drew upon patterns, spacial relationships, layering,voids, connections, and beauty inspired from the intricate homes of the amazing creatures destroy at first sight.

framework: In Search of Lost Time “Something of what they had concealed from me became apparent; a thought came into my mind which had not existed for me a moment earlier, framing itself in words in my head...� -In Search of Lost Time Marcel Proust


From the work of Marcel Proust, I drew upon the idea of time frame, where the character framed what was most important. This design began by making sets of frames that created different views of what was behind or being viewed. These framed elements were stood up, and flipped to function as the structural walls. The skin that will serve as the roof structure, is made out of a pattern of concrete and glass determined by a sun-study of site and the program needs of each interior space.

framework: vacancy research To understand what vacancy means in the central business district of Asheville, our studio completed a compreshensive study by visiting each of the 763 parcels to discover that 287 are vacant. The vast amount of vacancy totals 147 acres of land and a value of over $262 million.

documentation: We compiled our results into a set of 4 books: 1. What is Asheville? 2. What is Vacancy? 3. Index of Vacancy 4. What if?

While studying the master plan of Asheville, we were inspired by the city’s question to be merely “child frieldly or child tolerant.” It is clear that Asheville’s youth is a missing link in the demographic of the city. As a result, we developed a new youth center in the heart of traditional downtown to reconnect youth and the city.
