Park Avenue Plaza - Phase Two Office: Janson Goldstein LLP Involvement: conceptual design, graphic representation This redesign of a prominent Midtown Manhattan office towerâ€™s 28,000-square-foot public atrium and lobby lets the building live up to the architectural pedigree of its neighborhood, which includes such modernist icons as the Seagram Building. The new scheme centers on a dramatic glass colonnade composed of eight sculptural, roundedged piers, each 30 feet high, three feet wide and six inches thick. This colonnade pulls the public in, making a path through the space, providing places to gather and offering rhythm and order. The columns also encourage spontaneity and a variety of interactions, with movable seating and a free-flowing plan allowing for multiple uses. Art, sculpture, music, digital media and a central water feature create diverse experiences, while a continuous green wall and bamboo planters suggest an urban Eden.
Sag Harbor Residence Office: Janson Goldstein LLP Involvement: 3d modeling, photorealistic rendering This 3,000 sf private residence sits just outside of the village of Sag Harbor, NY. The house is situated on the highest point of the property to take advantage of the water views. It is comprised of three volumes, the Great Room, featuring kitchen, dining, and living areas, the Master Suite, and the Guest Wing. A lap pool and an adjacent courtyard provide space for outdoor entertaining.
Stratf ord Waterfront London Office: Buro Ole Scheeren Involvement: entire project process, physical model, concept diagrams, large sectiion, drawings, model photography Stratford Waterfront is the primary gateway site to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The development platform should become a high density “metropolitan” quarter able to support a broad mix of uses including cultural attractions. This will clearly set it apart and The International Quarter (TIQ). The project comprises the extension of the Victoria and Albert Museum, a black box theatre (Sadler’s Wells), the School of Fashion and Communication of the University of Arts London (UAL) and 80 000 m2 of housing.

Mecedes-Benz Cultural Center Competition Office: Buro Ole Scheeren Involvement: study models, drawings for presentation boards, diagrams, model photography The design is conceptually based on the geometry derived from the actual â€˜formâ€™ of driving. The language of the car racetrack, with its sequence of straights and curves, translates the experience of the building into a dynamic form and sculptural external shape. The Exhibition/ Museum spaces are arranged as a spiraling exhibition sequence that is legible from the outside as a solid volume. The Introverted museum is lifted above an open transparent base, which activates the ground and extends the realm of the city. The interlocking massing gives both a ceremonial grandness to the floating museum volume and an inviting openness to the transparent base. The building itself reaches into the public landscape and both become an extension of each other, creating a dynamic entity of symbiotic space and presence.

BARCELONA’S AGONISTIC DIONYSIANS Critic: Cristina Goberna Team: Hao Li, Georgios Louras, Laura Peterson, Ricardo León As citizens under constant pressure from the Barcelona’s post-crisis tactic of anti-party municipal legisltion, we are not supporters of passive conformism to governmental legislation. Instead we engage in an adversarial struggle with our opponents. Where the legislation seeks to limit our ability to enjoy the partying that constitutes the life blood of our collective identity, we find opportunities in the structure and language of the law.

CELESTIALLY LIGHT Critic: Steven Holl, Dimitra Tsachreli Team: Hao Li, Tina Liu Project is awarded the Lucille Smyser Lowenfish Memorial Prize and is featured in GSAPP’s annual publication “Abstract”. Sound and silence conceive music, as light and shadow form space. Sound ascends into silence, and silence lingers sound, resonating each note into harmony. Light descends into shadow, and shadow reveals edge, defining space. The transition between sound and silence in music creates sonic movement, as the body movement through space establishes circulation.
Two languages, conical column and triangular planes, were abstracted from Le Corbusierâ€™s Heidi Weber Pavilion and Toyo Itoâ€™s Sendai Mediatheque. The triangular planes become walls, ceilings, and floors, while holding or slicing the glowing light emanated from conical columns. The limited use of these t wo languages created an open and dynamic space that creates a flowing circulation with mysterious visual experience. 51
Music Analysis Toru Takemitsu composed Rain Tree Sketch II using the “mode of limited transposition” in memor y of Oli ver Messiaen. By limiting the number of transposition, the music illustrated a celestiall y light atmosphere, just like the stor y of “An Ingenious Rain Tree”.

POROUS BRICK Critic: David Stern The project preserves existing concrete structure and adds an additional masonry structure. A sequence of circulation is designed to integrate the two buildings and different spaces within. A series of staircases, ramps, and courtyards are used to encourage conversation and communication, fostering an open and friendly environment for students and employees. 63
