Extension of The National Museum of Colombia Course Title : Option Studio: Brick: Thick/Thin, Fall 2016 Instructor : Frano Violich Location : Bogotá, Colombia

Brick: Thick/Thin Studio aimed to challenge perceived notions of brick and its use in architecture and suggest viable proof-of-concept alternatives that raise questions about surface, structure, and material character. Through an iterative process of digital form-making and hands-on full-scale prototyping, the studio focused on discovering the potential of innovating with brick. My project is an extension of The National Museum of Colombia in Bogotá that is based on three key ideas: 1. The recognition that the Bogota education system has a gap in its arts programs. 2. The inspiration of Workshops and Makerspaces and their potential to play a bigger role in the community by increasing their public presence and combining educational programming. 3. The transformation of the Panopticon system into an idea of shared public observation,continuous and shifting views, and community connection. Our site is located in a very densely populated area with a high percentage of low income families and youth. Bogotá’s secretary of education faces a challenge in accommodating the city’s school age population. To maximize enrollment, Bogota’s public schools operate in two shifts, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The limited class time means that curricula in public schools focus on academic subjects, with little exposure to non-cognitive subjects like physical recreation and the arts. Those subjects are left behind in the current education system. As my building is a public national museum, my building proposes a space that includes working/makerspace for artists that is also an educational platform for public, especially the youth population. The collective experience of the museum is encouraged by the intermingling and co-existence of different programs. This repositions the idea of the workshop/makerspace as a public facility that provides programs to fill the educational gap in Bogota and elevates the arts through community awareness. The project also draws on the history of the National Museum which used to be a prison with Panopticon system. This idea of observation is transformed into one of mutual public observation. Creating a multitude of points and paths that allow users to see each other is a key element to increase the public safety of the area. This system is also adopted to maintain visual connections among the different programs and activities throughout the visitor’s experience of the building. Throughout the semester, our studio researched into the applicability of computer-aided design techniques that was first tested using drystack techniques and then later fully executed with brick and mortar.

The project design began from explorations of the brick dry-stack. The formal ambition was to create a scalable and repeatable structure that is self-supporting, which could be inhabited or used as a series of structural objects. Twisting was introduced to explore corbeling and racking techniques and the relation to curvature in brick construction. The torsion form in the Dry Stack revealed structural potential of brick beyond the vertical load-bearing wall. Academic Work

Housing for Advanced Urban Farming Course Title : Fourth Semester Core: RELATE, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Spring 2016 Instructor : Mariana Ibanez In Collaboration with Joanne Cheung Location : South Boston, MA, USA

How does an advanced form of urban agriculture transform the way we design and inhabit the city? The conceptual seed of this project originates from the premise that buildings and agriculture are both organized through various forms of cycles. As such, these cycles--seasonal changes, crop rotations, material degradation, market cycles--take on material and formal expressions, informing and transforming the shape of the city. The advancement of agricultural technology and transformation of urban form have a longstanding reciprocal relationship. The city emerges as a figure from its enveloping agricultural fields; this figure-ground relationship has been in flux from the era of the hunter-gatherer society to the factory-farming operations and its concomitant farm-to-table/ ad hoc urban agriculture initiatives in the present day. However, the contemporary city is more than ever before alienated from its sources of sustenance. As constested by the social scientist Gregory Bateson, the evolutionary unit of survival is not simply the replication and growth of the organism but rather “the organism plus environment”. The shape of the city to come must therefore recuperate the agricultural landscape within its urban form, not as a return to naturalism but as an actively constructed and intelligent nature that fundamentally redefines the unit of the city itself. In order to translate this goal to a design methodology, this project identifies a synergy in a pair of policy-level decisions and architectural applications on the local-level: the recently passed Article 89-a city-wide zoning article that allows for commercial urban agriculture in Boston and a soon-to-be restructured stormwater billing system that accounts for the area ratio of impervious surfaces on a given land parcel. The site has always occupied a liminal zone between the domesticated and the untamed, reclaimed from shallow salt marshes to become an impervious expanse of concrete only six feet above sea level. To build on the site would require us to reconstruct not only the ground plane but to reconfigure the very constitution the site’s sectional depth. To this end, elevation and perforation are the operative elements in a hybrid program wherein the parallel needs of agricultural production and stormwater management become fully integrated with the design of housing. Spatial planning for agriculture is driven by companion planting and succession planting. Plants of complementary nutrient needs are located adjacent to each other. The cyclical rhythm of plant growth is at once defined by and actively reshapes the organization of the urban fabric. The synergistic pairing of housing and agriculture aims to increase the metabolistic performance of the site: extending the growth season from 31 weeks to 52 weeks, as well broadening the hardiness zone to allow for a wider variety of crops to thrive. Farming catalyzed our transformation from hunter-gatherers to urban dwellers in just 10,000 years. Today, over 800 million hectares is committed to soil-based agriculture, or about 38% of the landmass of the earth. What is proposed here differs radically from what now exists is to scale up the concept of exposed and closed cultivation techniques (vertical farming, hydro and aqua-ponics), in which a wide variety of produce is harvested in quantity enough to sustain the city population without significantly relying on resources beyond city limits. Approximately 300 sqf of intensively farmed indoor space to produce 2000 calories of nutrition to support a single individual. Working within this framework, a vertical farm with the footprint of a single city block (250 x 500’) rising up 30 stories could provide enough nutrition for a population of 10,000. Given the current population of South Boston (5600), this means the potential yield could support 2x the density of the neighborhood population. If agriculture in urban centers such as Boston would become a norm, the long-term benefits would include the lifestyle of good health for city inhabitants, new employment opportunities, cleaner air, smart use of stormwater, and the improvement of the watershed ecosystem.

GRADATION - HOTEL TOWER DESIGN

Creating structure system as a thermodynamic environment controller Course Title : Third Semester Core: INTEGRATE, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Fall 2015 Instructor : Jennifer Bonner Location : Financial District, Singapore, Singapore

My project’s spaces and their relationship to one another are centered on the circulation, observation, and participation of the flaneur. At the same time, the building’s structural system is formed as a thermodynamic controller to the specific climatic conditions of the area and as a rainwater collector to address the fresh water shortage issues of Singapore. These two ideas have continually impressed upon one another to create the resulting architecture. <STRUCTURE> The tectonics of the building are driven by the rainwater collection and water utilization as a passive cooling mechanism. The tower is divided into two parts; the upper part collects rain water with a series of exposed slabs and pipes. The lower part of the tower acts as a reservoir and collects the water within the collection of vaulted spaces. The vaults provide a large surface area for spaces of different sizes and allow the stored water to be an effective cooling mechanism without adding to the humidity of the sub-tropical environment. The form of the building is not limited to the vaults. The division of the tower into two parts is expressed in its structure as well. The upper part, a rainwater collector, uses a tensegrity structure to complement the exposes pipes and aspires to capture a weightless and ethereal atmosphere. The lower part, a water reservoir, uses vaults of a lower height and a great wall thickness bear the additional load of the water while creating a cooler and dryer environment in a weighty atmosphere. <THERMODYNAMIC STRATEGY> Organization of this ‘core’ is based on the individual thermodynamic requirements of different public programs. Programs such as gallery, conference room, green room, require cool and dry ambient temperatures. As such, they are placed in the lower portion of the tower. Programs such as greenhouse, thermal bath, requiring warmer and more moist air are located at the top of the tower. <GRADATION OF SOCIAL SPACE> The ‘core’ programs are then categorized into three types, Event/Art Space, Conservatory/Greenhouse, and Spa / Pool. The categories are bundled together in groups of three and are stacked along the height of the tower. There is a circulation route that connects each category and results in a series of helix stairs, allowing a user to engage with all sides of the building. The helix routes dictate the slab heights in the ‘core’ and this offsetting from the hotel room floors creates a threshold between the public and private domains. The hotel rooms are mirrored and alternated around this core. The ‘value’ of the hotel rooms is now based on a relationship to an internal public program or specific event that is happening in the ‘core’. <STRUCTURE as IMAGE> Finally, the ‘structure as image’ strategy of the building supports the transparency and celebration of the function of the building and its users. From the exterior, the vaults and arches frame the rooms and users in a way that a reflective curtain wall building does not. As such, the idea of visual connectivity enjoyed between the users within the building is now extended to the city around it. Structure also plays an important role in the ‘framing’ of the user. The business traveler and their actions are captured in a heavy frame capturing the actions of the traveler with dignity and beauty.

Rare books library and reading rooms Course Title : Second Semester Core: SITUATE, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Spring 2015 Instructor : Luis Callejas Location : Emerald Necklace, Boston, Massachusetts, USA This project combines the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social aspects with the park, creating a very public architecture. Labrousteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original library design was based on a collective social space under one roof, with large shared tables, and walls of books to protect from the busy city outside.

Academic Work

Hyojin Kwon

52


The New MFA Library adapts this collective social space idea to a natural park setting. The Reading Room is on the park level and is separated from the Rare Book Collection and service areas in section. Bookshelves are centered in the Reading Room, allowing the facades to have full glazing and sliding doors onto the park. Two new landscapes are created, a courtyard and a reading garden. These new landscapes belong to the library but are connected to the rest of the park visually by using glazing and a Ha-Ha. A visitor enters the library below the reading garden and then rises up into the courtyard to access the Reading Rooms. This is not dissimilar to how Labrouste designed his entry sequence where the Reading Room is above the entry area. The shape of the library ring is based on the original park paths. There is a second ‘park ring’ to this project which is made up of a series of public reading rooms, terraces, and roofs. This ring frames the park’s boundary and creates distinct entry points. A new ‘social edge’ to the park is made and helps engage less active areas of the park by providing activity and lighting. Although they operate independently, both the library ring and the park ring work together to better engage the park and the public through architecture.

This idea of observation extends into my project in several ways; the high topography, military history of observation, Olympic programming, and role of the spectator. The idea of connection of the spectator within the building and the city is facilitated through continuous views. As such, the spectator is not only engaged in the direct Olympic program but a another layer is added where the spectator remains connected to the city. Architecturally, this is engagement is achieved through series of views that frame the athletes in the context of the city. The spectator sees the sport and beyond that they see the city. This moment was popularized in the Barcelona Olympic diving that image that captivated the world. The legacy of the Olympics is the relationship the building creates between the occupant and the city, even after the sporting spectacle is gone.

This is one of a image of examples of hybrid we can find in Korea. In “Bapsang”, traditional Korean meal table, people find new actualization between heterogeneous things. Even though side dishes on “Bapsang” are heterogeneous, chaotic in forms, and has disordered arrangement, we can find harmony of taste, reciprocity, and potential possibility of selecting choices. From this, we analyse there are many various ways and orders that coexist between chaotic heterogeneous images.

Urban Condition Diagram This is a urban diagram of Seoul, the capital of Korea. Infrastructures which were made for flow of the city actually interrupt and break the connections between the elements of the infrastructures.

Urban Condition Diagram

How can we think of making intermediate unit of the city of Seoul? The architecture that intermediates as the “Herb” dish of “Bapsang” suggests new order and system to the present issues of heterogeneity of the city.

The concept is exploring a form of architecture which mutually connects heterogeneous urban elements and the form of architecture also functions as a multiplicite through the special design and the arrangement of programs and access. This opens chances to people to make their various own choices and ways to use this architecture form.

Void + Glass The use of glass walls, inside and out, produces transparency and brightness. It also enhances a sense of encounter, an awareness of otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence, and cohesion among the visitors, whether they are at inside or outside. In this context, the exhibited works collaborate to enhance the phenomenological connection between the viewer, the displayed object, and nature. Passive observation is transformed into active individual and group interaction.

The intermediary nature of this architecture supports a flexible ordering of these heterogeneous components. As such, it becomes infrastructural allowing people create new flows and intersections through an open-ended approach. This project provides insight into architecture and the city evolving from ideas of heterogeneity to ones of multiplicity.

Parametric and Generative Geometry and Modeling Course Title : Digital Media II, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Fall 2015 Instructor : Andrew Witt in Collaboation with Shaina Kim Medial DoughKnot focuses on mathematical control of surfaces to generate self-interweaving space by using digital tools, and further explores the possibility of occupation of medial surfaces developed from circulation curves. It actively iterates the circulation curves, as it would be in a real building, generating dynamic space from medial surfaces that correspond to that virtual flow of movement. The strategy for this is to consider the torus knots as outdoor vertical circulation and to transform the secondary circulation to an undulating path to create variation in interior topological configuration; a series of different spaces to inhabit.

The elements in the installation are composed of a physical campus model, photos of students creating an environment of fantasy, and its infinate repetition, through mirrors and video screens. In this space, the participant views his university from an unfamiliar perspective. Along with the other occupants, he meets himself via the reflections of mirrors. Simultaneously, real-time video projections offer a self-viewing from different angles. These various perspectives and views ultimately allow the participant to find themselves at the ‘centre ‘ of the school. Mirrors and a real time video on screen captured by hidden camera let the viewers meet themselves in a different perspective.. The repeated and reflected image of Hanyang symbolise infinite future of the university.

DESTRUCTION

international competition winning project Program : Tokyo Designers Week Fair 2010 - Container Exhibition Location : Meiji Jingu, Tokyo, Japan Commisioned by : Japanese Design Association & Dezeen. Publication : Space magazine Jan2011, Dezeen sep2010, TDW2010 Official Booklet, My Experience : Project Designer & Director, Collaboration with Changyeob Lee All aspects of design, drawing, diagram, 3d simulations, and construction Tokyo Designers Week, one of the largest contemporary design event holds in Tokyo every year. The Container Competition was organized by Tokto Design Association and Dezeen. 17 winners selected from all over the world presented their unique installations, blurring the lines between architecture, art and design.

Titled “Destruction of the Environment” the elements in the installation are composed of nature, light, and mirrors creating environment of fantasy repeated infinitely within the space. The materials used in this installation – althought they represent elements of our natural environment – are actually made up of wasteful products. It is an anti-message symbolised through products that add to the destruction of our environment, however as a whole, creates a beautiful space of fantasy and illusion.

Nature is represented through flowers. Wire offcuts from a hardware store were used to create a gradient of petals floating in the space. Hidden candid cameras within this spcae, satirically delivers this scenery of spectators enjoying this irony in a real-time video, delivering a paradoxical messages.

While the elements create a beautiful space, it has a strong underlying message of discard and waste in our environment. This message of environmental destruction is repeated infinitely through mirrors but at the same time creates a quirky illusion distorting reality. In ths exhibit, a distorted mirror greets people, with their contradictory reflections of appreciating the beauty of art in a space made of materials they themselves throw away.

This is a contradictory space. It is a space with a serious message on the destruction of our environment, yet at the same time a playful interactive space. This was collaborative project that evolved from conceptual diagram to build work in the period of 4 months. It not only allowed us to explore and physically re-create a representation of our idea, but catalysed critical dialogue of our environment on an international platform.

The entrance to our installation was low, so that it would arouse curiosity for passers-by and when entered one could fully emerge themselves within the space. A low entrance allows people to view the installation from different perspectives. It separates the real world from the artificial fantasy we have created inside.

We explored themes about the environment directly surrounding us; the natural and the artificial. The ceiling represents the wide spans of sky, but it is made out of plastic bags that cannot be recycled. Plastic symbolises all that is discarded in our world. Paper is the most wasted resource in the world, and this is symbolised by the cardboard flowers.

INTERSECT

Installation Art commissioned by the Museum of Brisbane Program : Temporary Public Art Installation Project Location : Sunnybank, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia Commisioned by : Museum of Brisbane (Part of Brisbane City Council) Publiction : Offical Book publication Jan 2012, The Australian (09/2011) My Experience : Project Designer & Director, Collaboration with Christina Cho ( 06 - 10/2011) All aspects of design, drawing, diagram, 3d simulations, and construction

The Green History

Commercialisation

Chinese Cultural Layering

The history of the neighbourhood of Sunnybank is dynamic. In the 1940’s the government created the most beautiful garden in the city of Brisbane here. It was a seen as a green oasis. Over the years, migration patterns evolved the area into a chinese community, the largest in the city. With this re-shaping, the neighbourhood’s cultural and regional background remains multi-dimensional.

Intersect is an art installation that focuses on the integration of cultures and identities of Chinese immigrants and Australians in Sunnybank. These ideas are depicted in the installation’s form, materials and through time; its transformation. The fundamental concepts behind this installation are simple but opposingly, their physical representations are complex and symbolic. The shaping and overall form of the installation is generated from conjoining the Chinese Dragon and the Australian Kangaroo. The materials of bamboo symbolise China and native vines to Australia. Over time, the two materials begin to intertwine/ intersect which is a symbolic gesture representing the embracing of each other’s culture and tradition.

PERTH STADIUM - Environmentally Responsive Facade

Stadium Bid Project

Program : 60,000 Capacity Multi Purpose Stadium Location : Perth, western Australia, Australia Client : Government of Western Australia My Experience : Concept Design, Facade Design, Rendering, Functional Planning & Documentation POPULOUS Parametric Design Research Team, Leading Expert As the Lead Expert & Founder of Parametric Design Research Group in the office, I was responsible for on-going training, seminars, and support for Populous staff and implementation of parametric design. Perth Stadium Bid Work In June 2011, POPULOUS was appointed one of the three shortlists for the bid design of Perth’s new 60,000 seats multi-purpose stadium. My role was to plan public and premium areas, egress and stairs, and seating bowl. Especially, I was responsible for building envelope design and had a chance to apply the parametric design study to this project. Throughout the façade designing process of the project, the analysis of the site has been a key design driver for the façade and how it responds to the different edge conditions, views and climatic influences.

Environmental Condition Analysis

Climatic Responsiveness The façade design and materiality responds to the local climatic conditions with the aim of maximising patron amenity throughout the year, addressing a variety of variable climatic conditions, including sun shading, wind screening and conditioned space.

SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION CENTRE COMPLEX

Project Awarded and Under Construction / Collaboration of POPULOUS, OMA, and Hassell Program : International Convention, Exhibition, Entertainment Centre, Hotel, & Residential Tower Location : Sydney, New South Wales, Australia Client : Government of Western Australia

My Experience : Bid Design - Concept Design, Design Documentation, 3D Renderings, (08-11/2012) Design Development - Convention Centre Facade Design, Functional Planning and Documentation ( 01 - 04/2013) Three Facade Variables

Facade Development The focus of this exercise has been to define the elements which comprise the facade system and then explore their individual materiality and scale. The main external appearance of the building shall actually be informed by the internal illumination of the large volumes within. The entire convention centre shall act as a glowing lantern beautifully located on the Harbourside. To that end the internal illumination of the building is extremely important and sensitive to such issues as colour temperature and consistency of white light, intensities, uniformity of light and degree of incidental ‘spill’ onto the adjacent façade elements.
