Huang Pai Banh 11804 Fulmer DR NE Albuquerque, NM 87111 Huang.P.Banh@gmail.com

Huang was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and considers himself a true New Mexican. Though he grew up far from Asian culture, he stays true to his roots by following Chinese culture, religion and martial arts. His high belief in the balance of all things or yin and yang, helps guide his designs. His hobbies include bicycling, snowboarding, music, photography, culinary arts, and martial arts. Huang currently holds a second degree brown belt in Shao-lin Kung Fu. Huang started his education in architecture in 2008 giving him over five years of practice within the field. His inspiration and drive immediately took hold, giving him a clear understanding of the significance of architecture in the world. He believes that through great architecture, improvements in society, environment, economy and health are all possible. Though his career in architecture has been short, he has many notable accomplishments. In 2009, he was awarded first place in the University of New Mexico Research Quest competition for his Yale park design. In 2010, he was inducted into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars for his scholastic achievements. That same year, Huang was also inducted into the National Residence Hall Honorary for his high involvement on campus. He was a participant in the 2012 New Mexico Shared Knowledge Conference and presented new concepts on materials in architecture in relation to human psychology. Huang volunteered as the fund raising co-chair of the American Institute of Architecture Students chapter at UNM in 2013 and helped raise enough funds to send 17 students, including himself, to an AIAS conference. Huang will graduate from the University of New Mexico School of Architecture and Planning in the spring of 2014. His academic and personal experience has made his work ethic, creativity, and diversity a major asset to any design team.

nature annex contemplation pavilion

studio 201|Wakefield|fall 2011

The Bosque del Apache nature refuge sites next to the Rio Grande river, twenty miles south of Socorro New Mexico. The 57,331 acres of land is used for moist soil management to create wetlands, farmlands and forest, where thousands of migrating birds take refuge. The goal of the program was to educate the public and provide and opportunity for them to observe birds that migrate through the reserve. The uses included a exhibit space, ranger office/welcome desk, informative book shop, internal and external observation areas and external duck blinds. The concept of the project derived from the Sharp Shinned Hawk, which is a migrating bird of the reserve. The feathers of the hawks wings overlap each other making regulating pattern which gives the hawk its speed and agility when hunting prey. EAST ELEVATION

urban infill language bridge

studio 202|Myers|spring 2012

The Las Vegas Language Center for illiterate adolescents serves the city of Las Vegas, New Mexico. The project aims to assist with Las Vegas’s troubling crime rates; which are 66% higher than the New Mexico Average.

The goal of the program was to develop an area where troubled adolescents could go, in lieu of community service, to develop and refine their skills in various languages.

The concept of the project focuses on the metaphysical experience while moving through spaces. Wood elements throughout the project denote the sense of silence needed to learn a language. A perforated braille gate serves as a security element while implying the existence of illiteracy in all.

generative design San Francisco Urban Farm studio 302|Gines|spring 2013

The cost of living in San Francisco, California is very high. With ever increasing gas prices and lack of sustainable food resources, San Francisco seemed to be a city at a loss. However, through adversity and challenges that come with the city, came great innovation and inspiration. COMMUNITY GARDENS

GAS PRICES

PARKLETS

SCHOOL GARDENS

Parklets were a design concept developed from the Park(ing) day event in San Francisco . It encourages the reconsideration of the use of space and re-purposes it to become people space. This transgressive movement helps push other progressive movements in San Francisco, such as bicycling.

Urban farms decrease the use of gas by shortening the distance from farm to market. In addition, they educate the community about healthy, sustainable living and encourage transgressive thinking on how space is used.

Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad

Innovate ABQ was a concept derived from Innovation Square in Gainesville Florida. The idea was to create a central hub in which the City of Albuquerque and the University of New Mexico could meet. The end goal would be to further develop the economy in Albuquerque and New Mexico by creating more opportunities in which UNM graduates could be employed. Tijeras Ave.

Innovate Lane

The project consisted of two major parts. Initial site analysis of the selected site on the north west corner of Central Avenue and Broadway Boulevard and development of a master plan for the site. This was then followed by an architectural project in which all students were to pick a separate parcel from the master plan development and create a design that contributed to the Innovate ABQ Community.

OPENSPACE/GREENSPACE

Innovate Balance aims to create balance in its users by developing the mind, body and spirit. Office spaces with open floor plans allow sunlight to filter in, creating a creative environment challenging the mind. The fitness center, bicycle shop and restaurants allow users to live a healthy and active life. The roof top Spirit Bar allows users to relax in order to live a truly balanced life. Housing complexes are introduced to develop a dense downtown area and put eyes on the street. Proper orientation of the two separate designs create a frame in which the future Bus and Rapid Transit Station can be emphasized, creating a new image of ideal transportation for Albuquerque and New Mexico.
