PROJECT 1 • A PRECEDENT STUDY • MURCIA CITY HALL

Document, study and analyze the City Hall of Murcia. Located in Murcia, Spain, the city hall was designed by Rafael Moneo. The seemingly random pattern of orthogonals, combined with the lack of entrance space on the plaza level, not only is a sign of respect to surrounding classical architecture but also helps capture picturesque views of its elegant surroundings.

PROJECT 2 • A FACADE REDESIGN • PALAZZO ANGELO MASSIMO

The project calls for a redisgn of the notorious Palazzo Angelo Massimo. We were allowed to reconstruct from the inner edge of the sidewalk up to 30 feet into the property. A key part of this project was to analyze the neighboring building, the Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne, and to try to understand why the facade was so successful. My design incorporates the pattern strategy from the City Hall of Murcia as well as some view manipulations of the Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne.

By utilizing a folding pattern that constantly mirrors itself, I created multiple openings and views into the street all through specific angles. A perfect perpendicular view to the facade would seemingly create a flat surface. The repetitive folding pattern occurs twice irregularly to create two dynamic spaces that allow a very different type of interaction with the public.

PROJECT 3 • A FASHION STUDIO • SERIAL CULTURA

Serial Cultura is a clothing line designed by Jennifer Jennings. Located in California, Jennifer Jennings primary inspiration for her recent collections has been the use of light with different filters to create different shadows. These shadows allude to depth and then with the addition of color, create very unique yet simple designs for her collections.

The project asks for the design of fashion studio adjacent to The Standard Hotel, in the Meatpacking District of New York City. In order to utilize Serial Cultura’s philosophy and create a unique experience for all vistiors of the fashion studio, I exagerated the basic structure of the building and by its alignment with the specific sun angles for different times of the day, it casts inspirational shadows that mimic the philosophy of Serial Cultura.

Jennifer Jennings is inspired by the use of a combination of shadows and colors projected onto various models for the design experience, acting as a canvas.

The Showroom is catageorized as the most important space in the building. It is the area where the designs and imaginative process of the designer is showcased. The Showroom is intended to be a private and exclusive space where the “1 percent” are invited and get to experience the “magic”. By placing a slight pitch to the showroom roof, a public outdoor space is created right behind the “filter” wall, thus any normal person on the street can still experience the building without being inside.
