FILM PHOTOGRAPHY

Site: Various locations Spring 2018

Pratt Architecture’s Rome Program is a semester long exploration of Roman antiquity and Italian culture with a focus outside of the common studio environment. During this period, I chose to further develop my skills using film photography as a way to document the many architectural sites and picturesque visuals I encountered.

TRAVEL STUDIO: BUENOS AIRES

critic Guillermo Banchini Site: Buenos Aires, Argentina Fall 2018

This studio was a sponspored travel studio ran in conjunction with the Universidad de Buenos Aires in Argentina. The studio traveled to Buenos Aires during the semester, visiting the project site and various other key architectural sites. The project is located at a central intersection of the theatre district in Buenos Aires providing visilibilty and access to this new building for the National School of Dances in Buenos Aires. The design proposal is symbolic of a mass being sliced open to invite the public to view the city as a stage.

VOLKSPORTFELD

critic John Szot and Karen Bausman Site: Tempelhof Airport, Berlin, DE Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 project conducted with Yusung Paul Um

Berlin is a city that chooses to remember its history, it doesn’t hide its mistake. Across Berlin are prime examples of remembrance through interventions such as reconstruction as seen in the Reichstag or reinterpretations, such as the Neues Museum by Chipperfield. A building that is a current exception to this attitude is Tempelhof Airport. Through its scale and powerful symmetry, Tempelhof Airport was once an active showcase of National Socialism’s presence in Germany to the international community that would come through its borders by means of this facility. The airport was abandoned by the Germans during the second world war, taken under control by the Americans until the reunification of Germany remaining a regional airport until 2008. Being currently abandoned it has become a unique case of Berlin not remembering its history through a means of intervention. We are proposing the reinvention of Tempelhof as a true space for the public to utilize as a sports park facility. Today Tempelhof Field is the largest inner city open space in the world and Berlin’s largest park. Both cases argue in favor of the reinvention of usage for athletic activity.
