Project Type: Commercial // Residential Studio 3: Professor Brittany Williams Duration: 4 1/2 Weeks Location: 1413 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C.

The design process began with the study of an iconic apartment complex in which it was used to understand the basic concept of an apartment layout. The location of the site lies outside in one of the most historical areas of DC, Logan Circle. It is the only untouched location from commercial invasion. In the other hand, it lays right next to the commercial zone, 14th street. Due to its surrounding, it has huge potential in bringing life to an area divided between commercial and residential spectrum.

By pushing inward on 14th street an extension of Logan Circle Public Park is developed. Thus, enhancing both the transition of space from around the downtown and upper DC. It also helps anchor the commercial program around the area.

Mount Vernon, Baltimore Site Plan

Historical building on Charles St.

Project Type: Public Exhebition // Community Studio 3: Professor Brittany Williams Duration: 3 1/2 Weeks Location: 909 Charles St. Baltimore, MD

The project criteria was to design a Center for Diverse Dialogue, located at 909 Charles St. in Mount Vernon Baltimore, Maryland. The goal is to served as a common meeting facility and forum for Baltimore’s ongoing discussions on equality and improving of life for all city residents. The facility provided accessibility to the public and organizations for meetings, events and lectures. While the public space was to be open to the public, the rest of the space was for private use.

Acknowledging the key elements of the program, the design was develop to accommodate the first floor as the main public space surrounding a central courtyard. The purpose of the courtyard was to give the facility its identity as a whole while connecting with the outside, Mount Vernon historical district. Moreover, over iteration after iteration the main idea was to help bring together everything that was surrounding the courtyard and make visitor unite. The facade of the structure resembles the principles surrounding Mount Vernon; repetition, order, and form. The hierarchy of the faรงade comes from the numerous brick faรงade in which it was incorporate in the mullions.

Project Type: Commercial Studio 2: Professor Jason Winters Duration: 4 1/2 Weeks Location: 1324 Florida Ave, Washington, D.C.

The location of the site lies outside in one of the most historical areas of H street heritage trail. Its sits next to a historical Fire station in Florida Avenue and stand not too far from the historical Atlas Performing Arts Center in H Street. Due to the history surrounding the site, it has huge potential in bring life to an area divided between the commercial and residential spectrum. To tie these areas, I proposed the development of a organize grid of trees that would frame part of Florida Avenue, H street and Maryland Avenue as a more sustainable area. In addition, it could increase future development, and most importantly it would bring the Food Market within a new develop yet historical site.

+ Concept

Acknowledging the corner and sun direction, the market was developed in accordance from feedback of resident interviews. The main object was to use the corner as a source of a public plaza that would bring to life the food market. To extend the plaza beyond the first level, a habitable staircase was designed. Additionally, it allowed terraces to be incorporated, thus, allowing for direct sunlight to be control for comfort. To anchor the idea of intersecting planes, two main walls intersect from ground to roof helping them become the guide in space making. Moreover, to unify the market, a network of intersecting planes going on the X, Y, and Z coordinate systemize the circulation, space separation, and connects the program as one identity

Contextual Site Plan Project Type: Commercial // Coffee Shop Studio 2: Professor Jason Winters Duration: 3 Weeks Location: Stamp Union, College Park, MD

The design process began with the study of site context near the Stamp Union at the University of Maryland. It’s surrounded in a highly urban area that many student walkthrough on a daily basis. The main objective of the project is to design a coffee kiosk that satisfied the site conditions such as the high population movement, program function, surroundings, and architectural sequence. Through various iterations, we were asked to develop an idea that represented point, line and plane. In addition, the form introduces solution of ambiguity, space, and form.

Baltimore Harbor Site Plan

Project Type: Exhibition // Watch Tower Studio 3: Professor Michael Ezban Duration: 1 1/2 Week Location: Fort McHenry, Baltimore, MD

The location of the site lies on a historical, Fort McHenry. Its consider an important landmark as it is the gateway towards the inner harbor of Baltimore. Due to the history surrounding the site, a watchtower was design to reinforce the threshold that exists between Baltimore and the Fort. The design illustrates a tower surrounded by a conceptual reflecting pool in which it torques at a 25 degree from ground to top. The main idea is that at the ground level, the triangular tower is at a 0 degree focusing on the axial connection of the Fort, Visitors, and the main road. However, through expansion and compression, the triangular tower is rotated 25 degree. Once the eye has reach top level, the axis has reorianted toward City Hall and I-95.

Project Type: Surveying // Archaeology Study Abroad: Professor Van Duration: 3 Weeks Location: Castellammare Di Stabia, Italy

Surveying Villa Arianna was a 3 weeks project that consisted of the usage of the highest technology in surveying. The goal was to reproduce the Villa in a 3d model using the Lidar. It was important that our recordings were accurate in order to be presented to the government of Napoli, Italy. Additionally, the task included other tools such EDM, hand drawing of wall elevations, and compiling them to reproduce a final digital elevation of each wall of the Villa Arianna.
