PROFESSIONAL WORK


01 INFINITE NETWORKS In collaboration with Luke Prifogle The recent territorial merging of Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the city of Cambridge has crystalized the potential of an ideal incubator for academic research and entrepreneurial productivity. The focus of this studio is the development of a new urban innovation hub. Our process began with a three week research project on research centers, both academic and corporate, investigating the utopian legacy of these models and inflecting those models to engage new ecological imperatives and cultural agendas. The research also studied the legacy of the post-war mega structure as a model for city –making. Infinite Networks combines the utopian visions of Alison and Peter Smithson’s Golden Lane with Arata Isozaki’s Joint Core System. The cores act as new campus markers, and are connected by the horizontal Golden Lane elements.

02 X-POINT CITY In collaboration with Dane Stokes Vertical tower typologies cluster together to form building groups, while horizontal mat type structures form a connective tissue between the clusters. Where the horizontal and vertical building typologies connect a corruption within the tower cluster forms creating an atrium space that acts as a programmatic mixing chamber, blending users and stimulating unique cultural and economic opportunities. The stimulus for this development is the introduction of the EXPO elevated rail line that cuts through the middle of the building and not only services the structure but creates an opportunity to re-think the way in which this typically car centric city can be navigated and inhabited. The site houses a variety of apartment types, integrated educational facilities, retail spaces, museum and cultural facilities as well as office spaces. By placing a high density mega structure on a major rail corridor we see the potential for a major car based city to begin to shift the way it operates to a more sustainable, holistically operating living strategy.

03 MBK CENTER

The My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Center provides housing for homeless people who wish to make the transition into a successful, functioning life style. In addition, it addresses issues of poverty, job training, healthcare and access to legal assistance through program. To help fund the project, the MBK Center will also include luxury apartments to help financially subsidize the low-income housing units. The building will express a condition of “homelessness” to the general public. In doing this, the building’s affluent users will become more aware of the homeless as they put forth an effort to change their lives for the better.

04 URBAN AIR FILTER

In collaboration with Harry Lam and Nick McClintock This hub serves not only as a bio-remediator but also as an extension of Tribeca’s transportation infrastructure. Nitrogen oxide is gathered from the high-trafficked street level and used as fuel for the building’s bioreactors. The recycled air is then distributed back out to the street and subway. The building’s form was conceived through the tucking and nesting of objects that were tested through fluid dynamic simulations. These objects, which are equipped to consume CO2 from the air as part of the purification process, are also programmed to encourage users to become more aware of contemporary air remediation strategies. 24 | G R E G

This cabaret earned its name through both process and function;

Dining/Drinks Dining/Recreation Area

The primary forms that generated the design were derived from 2D projections of tensegrity structures. Additionally, the program utilizes principles of opening and closing similar to that of a camera aperture. Nested within each framework is a central core that regulates the vertical circulation of occupants, entertainment, and other various services.

07 TENSEGRITY TABLE Studio 501 Preliminary Project This study on tensegrity explored the potentials of the system as an adaptable design tool. Using a tensegrity table as a basis of analysis, a series of iterations were conducted by changing the number of struts that made up the system’s structural base. Adding supplementary struts to the initial 3 strut assembly altered the structural configuration and produced a series of increasingly complex geometries. Once a catalog of iterations was established, the tensegrity studies were then hybridized with the concept of four-bar linkage in order to produce a dynamic new design system with flexible use.

10 PERSONAL PROJECTS Modular Storage Units In the spring of 2014 I proposed a project that would focus on enhancing underutilized space in West Philadelphia Schools. Charrettes were conducted with the student-run group CO+LAB at the University of Pennsylvania to brain storm potential design ideas. Through the Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative we were able to connect with the Samuel B Huey School in West Philadelphia, who were in need of modular storage units for the students in their food empowerment program. The completed designs were donated to members of the Huey School and Urban Nutrition Initiative.

Skateboard Deck Series These longboards were created as part of an independent study that I conducted during my senior year at the University of Pittsburgh. Each board was conceived through iterations of concept sketches, and then hand-cut from plywood. This project allowed me the individual freedom of conceptualizing, constructing, and finishing my own line of product design.

11 PROFESSIONAL WORK My role on this design team was to help develop all exterior assemblies and details for a 145,000-squarefoot housing project. I collaborated with the project architect and consulted the project’s landscape architect and engineer. I was also responsible for developing construction documents for all exterior sections and details.
