the living collaborative Advisors: Christina Hansen & Lars Graebner | Systems Studio Collaborators: Ishan Pal & Abirami Manivannan | Eastern Market, Detroit

The Eastern Market is a space that represents the community of Detroit, a shared public space for social mixity, food processing, and entrepreneurship; all under the framework of a market. The many parties involved in Eastern Market care about its function, the sustainability of its future and the community it brings together in Detroit. The market is a collaboration between the government of Detroit, a non-profit that runs the market, and the people who visit and work at the market. Drawing inspiration from the collaboration between different entities of Eastern Market to maintain the authenticity of the market, this housing project explores typologies that enhances and builds on this sense of community, collectivity, and collaboration to form The Living Collaborative. This project is a prototype that aims to combine the market, creative production, and education within the collective framework of housing. Channeling the

- 05 -

entrepreneurial spirit of Detroit, The Living Collaborative’s identity is formed through the people who live here to create a synergistic and sustainable community. The Living Collaborative offers different scales and types of shared/communal spaces that enhance the experiences of the people in the community. Each housing unit is a commune, offering unique types of co-living for a diverse set of residents. Surrounded by the housing, a workshop building acts as a community space that binds the housing building and provides space for people to work and build revenue for the area. The market and entire ground plane is a public space for the residents and people of Detroit. The arches, a form that represents invitation, strength and unity signify the shared spaces. They grow from the market onto the perimeter of our project and into the shared spaces within the units to form dynamic spaces and add subtle changes in the facade.

Eastern Market consists of 6 indoor and outdoor market sheds. The proposal maintains the original axis of the market to ground the housing project in Eastern Market. The entire ground floor is a public plane with commercial surrounding the perimeter and a workshop in the center acting as a space for cultural production, while the market is primarily a space for trade. The housing is situated along the perimeter as three distinct communes offering different types of co-living spaces. The perimeter consists of a unified system of arches to create a legible connectivity to bind the project together. In addition to using arches on the perimeter, CLT wood arches are used as structure on the ground floor signifying the public spaces in the project.

parque sonar Advisor: Anya Sirota | Propositions Studio | Collaborator: Ishan Pal | Mexico City

Over the past two decades, Mexico City has witnessed the emergence of a breadth of cultural projects. This studio was focused on investigating the role of cultural centers in urban development and is situated at the intersection of contemporary art, politics, and visual culture. This project believes that music and sound can blur the differences in class and architecture can offer a radical mixity of programs, people, and places. After visiting Mexico City for a week and studying existing formal and informal cultural spaces, we saw the importance of music and sound shaping how people come together. Inspired by this culture, Parque Sonar images a new cultural center that acts as a sound playground for different genres of music to come together and space is provided for new genres of music to form by crazed experimentation. The vernacular architecture on the site with a diverse set of emergent

- 19 -

programs is preserved but enhanced by introducing juxtaposed programs and spaces. Cultural infrastructure is defined by preserving the intangible heritage of the site, creating architectural porosity in section and plan, providing heterogenous and juxtaposed programs, and supporting informalism that is achieved by adaptation, patina, and appropriation. Music and sound are used as social connectors to strengthen the connection between the community and Canal Nacional. The Canal Nacional is one of the few remaining bodies of water in the metropolis of Mexico City. Over the years the canal has become a magnet for trash and algae growth and was threatened to be covered up with a road. The local community in Iztapalapa has taken measures to restore the canal to its former glory.

emergent urban program

After visiting the site and looking for emergent programs and activity that happens along the canal, we found a cafe that hosted music and jazz classes right along the canal. In addition to the cafe itself, we researched other institutions related to the arts and music that could act as catalysts for this cultural center which are mapped above. On the site itself we saw that the existing programs were disconnected - the canal, the church, the senior community center, and park. We sought to create connections to the canal by bridging it and creating a grid of speaker columns that unify the site and provide infrastructure for speakers, lighting, and other forms of sound generations for individuals to appropriate as needed. The columns are arranged in a grid based on zoning the decibel capacity of each column to create louder and quieter areas across the site. cdmx districts

The main two massings that bridge the canal are similar proportionally - one being the culinary center with a restaurant and the other being a music library/museum but in different architectural styles (mexican baroque and modern) united under a double skin facade that you can occupy. The distance between is another site of negotiation between the music and food programs. The workshops/ classroom spaces are also united under a scaffolding that extends into the canal. And along the canal a series of docks and other access to water has been created to connect the community with the canal.

The programs are distributed across the site and the landscape and architecture are able to be appropriated. The landscape is heterogenous and zoned across the site consisting of play spaces, agricultural spaces, intense friche forest spaces, ornamental tree promenades, and docks for access to the water. The site and speaker columns allow for a variety of affordances ranging from a typical everyday productive landscape, a quinceanera ceremony, and a music festival.

civic & water assemblies Advisor: Jen Maigret | Fall 2018 | Jersey City, New Jersey

In this institutions studio, we were tasked with designing a new city hall for a city named the most culturally diverse city in the nation in 2017 - Jersey City, New Jersey. This project aims to connect civic and water assemblies for Jersey City by undertaking challenges of water and cultural connectivity. Jersey City’s ambitions include connecting its diverse population by hosting cultural events and 2017 was the city has established water sustainability efforts. The new city hall will extend and blur the thresholds between the interior program functions and exterior landscape activity, all under one roof canopy that acts as a civic porch. The building celebrates water by allowing for the diverse population to celebrate their various

water related cultural festivities at City Hall in the landscape and new performance space. In addition to the celebration of water, the building has floodable zones on the ground floor to account for flooding risks to establish an attitude towards water that accepts the risks.

The performance space and council chamber room stack on top of each other in section, with the performance space extending outside to blur the boundaries between interior and exterior. The performance space and public service area on the ground floor are constructed like ships to keep water out of these special areas. The tectonics of the roof is experienced as one rises up in the building to the council chamber room. Adjacent to the council chamber room is a rooftop terrace for meetings to spill outside and space is provided for discussion beyond the rituals of the council chamber meeting.

Sphere of Influence

As a research assistant at RVTR, an experimental architecture and urban design research group at Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, I worked on projects ranging from archaeology, construction package detailing, to literature research on the future of glass. Within archaeology, I drafted reconstruction drawings of temples at the Notion Archaeological Survey. I worked closely with the archaeologist to carefully craft detailed drawings of the existing ruins and the reconstructed elevations and plans of the temples at the ancient city of Notion. For construction package detailing, I drafted an issue for construction set for siting a CommonHealth+ prototypical modified container health clinic in Jamaica. The modified container had already been designed and fabricated but the drawings clarified the process of construction assembly for ease of installation.

- 37 -

Lastly, I was assembling literature and research for a project sponsored by Guardian Industries titled Design Ecologies of Glass. The research project is an ongoing study pairing the University of Michigan and Guardian Industries addressing the future of design opportunities and possibilities for glass if R20 thermal performances can be delivered. The project was initiating during my time at RVTR, and my role was primarily in gathering research on historical paradigm shifts in glass and diagramming and diagraming entity relationships of the key players in the design ecologies of glass (see diagram on the left).

Notion Archaeological Survey is an ongoing collaboration with archaelogical researchers surveying the ancient city. During my time at RVTR, I was working closely with archaelogist Christopher RattĂŠ to draft as state drawings of the ruins and reconstructed drawings of the temples on the site. This involved using a combination of aerial photography, thermal imaging, magnetic gradiometry survey data, and photographs, to draw detailed drawings of the existing ruins and reconstructed drawings of the ancient temples on the site.

hyl architecture Advisors: Whitney Loke & Antony Yen | Aug 2016 - 2018 | Washington, DC

As a designer at HYL Architecture, I conceptualized, developed, and documented major portions of projects in all phases of design, often working directly with a Principal. I worked on projects ranging from 10-15,000 sf to larger scale 50,000 - 120,000 sf. On a project completed in 2018, we worked with artist Gabriel Dawe on an artwork commission that was a portion of the design of a new office for a law firm. The client wanted their lobby to be nontraditional and celebrated by the employees and public at Washington Harbor. This led to the artwork commission of Plexus C20, in which I was responsible for detailing the millwork to receive the artwork and 3D modeling the artwork for the client and artist to visualize in the space. The artwork leads one into a breakout area where I designed an undulating

- 43 -

ceiling that mimics the curves of the artwork millwork and building, connecting the spaces together. I have included my work on three projects that are all interior fit outs; a 10,000 sf law office, another office for a technology consultant with a communicating stair, and a 120,000 sf office for the non profit think tank Urban Institute at L’Enfant Plaza. On the smaller scale projects I was working on them starting from the initial stages of programming/ planning and through construction administration/occupation. For the Urban Insitute project, I worked on the project from programming/planning till construction administration.

In addition to assisting in designing and visualizing the floor plan, creating a furniture package, and completing the construction documents to this project, I was responsible for designing and documenting the millwork to receive the artwork installed by artist Gabriel Dawe. Because of the complexity of the geometry of the artwork, I was also asked to model the geometry in 3D to confirm if there would be conflicts with the strings intersecting.

For their new office, the Urban Institute was looking for spaces that facilitate external and internal collaboration. The typical office floors were organized as “neighborhoods” for each research center with an open stairwell and shared meeting spaces to encourage the cross pollination of ideas. In addition to typical office floors, the project also included spaces for large scale public events including a theater, multipurpose rooms, and conference spaces on the promenade level of the project. I was the main junior designer throughout the duration of this project that worked on the design development prresentations, the construction documents, the furniture package, and attended client meetings, consultant coordination meetings, and CA meetings on site.

maggie’s charlottesville Advisor: Anselmo Canfora | Undergraduate Thesis Studio | Charlottesville, VA

The state of cancer care in the United States is in disarray because care is mainly focused on curing the disease, rather than healing the person. This project provides a healing space for anyone affected by cancer and aims to redesign patient and staff healthcare experiences. The UVA Health System is used as a test site for designing a cancer support center where complimentary services are offered by the Emily Couric Cancer Center (ECCC). The ECCC is outgrowing its current building and wants to offer these complimentary services, but there is no space left in the building. Therefore, this project proposes to site a Maggie’s Centre, a typology of cancer support centres in the UK, across the street from the ECCC with a raised pathway through the woods weaving the hospital complex together. The raised pathway physically connects the two buildings, while also providing garden spaces to

restore and replenish the health of the community. This design of Maggie’s Charlottesville was informed by my research with Professor Schaeffer Sommers on the architectural analysis of healing spaces, specifically Maggie’s Centres in the UK. During the summer of 2015, with another student, I visited six Maggie’s Centres in the UK and conducted field studies through drawing, photography, and conversations with the staff and volunteers. Upon returning we researched the spatial analysis and organization of the centres through modeling and diagramming. Maggie’s are an interesting architectural typology and this thesis explores the possibility of a Maggie’s Centre for the UVA hospital complex that aims to provide healing spaces for those visiting the complex.

Research on the architectural analysis of healing spaces, conducted through a Faculty Global Research with Undergraduates Grant with Schaeffer Somers, informed this project. The research involved intensive study of a network of cancer support centers in the UK called Maggie’s Centres. The three Maggie’s Centres shown here have similar spatial syntax with either the kitchen or entrance of the centre being key in understanding the entire plan. Maggie’s Centres find success in this type of spatial arrangement, distinguishing themselves from more typical hospital spaces that are maze-like. The red dots on the diagrams indicate the kitchen, a crucial space for communal healing. This research informed the spatial organization of the Maggie’s Centre designed for Charlottesville.
