Architecture Portfolio 2017


Architecture [ahr-ki-tek-cher] noun -the profession of designing buildings, open areas, communities, and other artificial constructions and environments, usually with some regard to aesthetic effect. Architecture often includes design or selection of furnishings and decorations, supervision of construction work, and the examination, restoration, or remodeling of existing buildings. -the structure of anything: ex: the architecture of a novel. http://www.dictionary.com/browse/architecture

During my architectural education, I have learned to do more than just architecture. In my opinion, architecture can be defined and applied in many different fields that do not necesarilly have to fit within the building arts. Architecture and design can play a positive role in seeking solutions to many different kinds of challenges. I believe as designers and architects we can offer significant roles that address more than just the fundamentals of architecture. Hector Chu Wu

+In the city of New York, most people live vertically. Where they wish to to live in single-family residences in the suburbs. However, the question must be raised, “How can architecture and design be a solution to allow residences to live vertically with diversity and density, all in one building?�

The building proposal is aimed for the low/medium income families. This will provide an opportunity for residents or users to remain in the downtown area rather than living in the suburbs. The building will offer a vertical farming that can feed the residents and as well available for the market.

EDUCATION LOOP Educational Institution for Upcoming University students

Project Type: Education Facility Professor: Emad Afifi Studio: Undergraduate Comprehensive Studio II+III Term: Winter/Spring 2015 Savannah College of Art and Design

+The proposal aims to set new developments in a semi

populated district. Where buildings are placed in street frontages, an educational program schematic, and sustainability in construction and durability in materials for the long term. Impotantly, the relationship of the site with the existing conditions is essential to create a link between the two elements. Low life cycle cost, low environmental impact, comfort and health, creative high performance green design, and synergy with architecture.

Artist Statement

022

Bachelard’s excerpt towards ‘Intimate Immensity’ analyzes that the contribution of images of immensity leads to the impressions of immense phenomenology and directly to our imagining consciousness. Therefore, the origin of our intimate space begins to meet the outer immensity to evoke a sense of grandeur. This emotional perplexity which leads the audience to perceive their own thoughts. Resulting into a state of a philosophical category of daydream in which Bachelor argues. The light installation can be seen as the byproduct of the perception of daydreaming and conscious of enlargement. Whereas the light contributes to the idea of contemplation and images of immensity.
