THE ART NETWORK

Extension of The National Museum of Colombia Course : 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 dry-stack techniques and then later fully executed with brick and mortar.

A shared space is created in the center by twisting the grid which connects the space not just horizontally but also vertically, brings in light, and transforms panopticon geometry using brick in a way that reflects the tools we have at hand.

The clusters aggregated and expanded adding greater shared space. What this does is engaging and unifying the building as a collective public experience.

The key axis extended beyond the clusters to the site and engage with the surrounding site at various levels and points

GRADATION - HOTEL TOWER DESIGN

Creating structure system as a thermodynamic environment controller Course : Third Semester Core: INTEGRATE, 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. <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.

SUPERLOCAL

Housing for Advanced Urban Farming Course : Fourth Semester Core: RELATE, Spring 2016 Instructor : Mariana Ibañez Project in Collaboration with a group member 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.

Linear Library

Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) Rare Books Library Course Title : Second Semester Core: SITUATE, Spring 2015 Instructor : Luis Callejas Location : Emerald Necklace, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

The goal of this project was to understand, absorb, and graphically communicate a library precedent, Bibliotheque Ste. Genevieve by Henri Labrouste; and then to reposition, critique and transform the precedent in relation to the new site. This project combines the library’s social aspects with the park, creating a very public architecture. Labrouste’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. 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.

MUTUAL HETEROGENEITY Library+ Subway Station

Course : Graduate Thesis Studio (Hanyang University), 4th year, Fall 2009 Thesis prize winning project Instructor : Soongak Jang Location : Dong-jak Station, Seoul, Korea The project starts from one image of hybrid forms 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. The “Bap”, main Hub dish, is the key element of the network of eating route. “Bap” serves as the intermediate unit which provides a blance between all different kinds of side dishes finding the order of the system. The architecture that intermediates as the “Hub” dish of “Bapsang” suggests new order and system to the present issues of heterogeneity of the city. It functions as a multiplicite through the arrangement of programs and circulation bridges extended from the critical contexts. This opens chances to people to make their various own choices and ways to use this architecture form. The use of glass walls, inside and out, produces transparency and brightness. It also enhances a sense of encounter, an awareness of other’s presence, and cohesion among the visitors, whether they are at inside or outside. 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.

Arrival Points, Destinations and Decision Making Points The connection bewteen arrival points and destinations determines the wayfinding and signage requrirements for the jouney. It should be noted that significant landmarks such as sculptures are appropriate to use for wayfinding and can be supplemented with signage of suitable prominance.

The strategy is to have a consistent sign form across the precinct. And each major venue or destination is to have a design form that integrates with the architectural or landscape expression. A cultural layer of signs across the precinct and venues will be applied to ‘tell the story’ of history and art. Exisiting Perth transport signage will

be integrated at the transport hubs as well as the language and pictogram graphic elements integrated into the precinct and venue sign content.

MEDIAL DOUGH-KNOT

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.

GSD VIS 02224 Digital Media II Assignment 02 Topological Surface

Medial DoKNOT Shaina Kim Hyojin Kwon In this project, the goal was to discover how different relationships between two circulation curves would result into different medial surfaces. A torus knot is set as the non-varying main circulation, and a additional circular curve is weaved within the main curve as variables. As a result, apertures were made in different scales and configuartion at each level, creating a dynamic topological surface, but subtle enough to make the whole geometry look as it was a homogeneous object with gradation.

The design exhibition titled ‘ Here I stand’ explores the identity of Hanyang university students. 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.

Titled “Destruction” 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 – although they represent elements of our natural environment – are actually made up of daily wastes. 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.

My own private neon oasis is a contemporary art project exploring identity of small town in Australia commissioned by Museum of Brisbane (MoB), part of Brisbane City Council. The projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme was to explore the identity of a small town called Sunnybank and create a built work to help bridge relationships in the community. The increased settlement of Chinese immigrants during the 1980s significantly influenced this town and its design, as well as provided the area with a distinct cultural identity. However, there is an atmosphere of tension between the ethnic Chinese and other residents. My installation focused on the integration of Chinese and Australian cultures at one of the brief intersections of their livesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the shopping mall. The sculpture interacts with the place and the people as it weaves itself through a busy outdoor passageway. Chinese bamboo and Australian native flowering vines begin to intersect and intertwine over time, a symbolic gesture of the richness that evolves from embracing different cultures and traditions. Even more rewarding than the challenge of exploring and physically building an idea, this project catalyzed a critical dialogue of integration within the community.

10-STORY OFFICE SPACE DESIGN Corporate Headquarter within a Tower

Program : Office Headquarter Design Commisioned by : Confidential Location : New York, NY, USA My Experience : Design Intern Responsible for a series of social spaces design throughout the floors, Model Making, Rendering, Diagram, Planning. The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core business can be divided into five major asset categories and six Global Value Creation Resources. Although divided, the various departments work closely together to advance overall business goals. To address and represent a unified brand + one firm approach, across departments and divisions, a campus system was proposed, just as a university campus is divided clearly among departments, with shared collective spaces dispersed around a central quad or spine. Amenity Loop : By distributing amenities across various floors, visitors and employees will engage in more informal meetings and interactions. The amenity loop can merge social and cultural programs with a winding path of vertical circulation. As a design intern, my role was to research and propose suitable programs for the amenity loop and further design a series of social spaces along the loop. View connection throughout the floors were explored and computational modelling studies and rendering were followed to achieve desired goals.

JARIR HEAD OFFICE TOWER Project Awarded and Under Construction

Program : Office tower (Jarir companies headquarters and tenant rental spaces), and a retail showroom Competition by : Jarir Investments & Raseel Properties Location : Al Yasmin District, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia My Experience : Concept and Planning & Schematic Design phases. Planning, Drawing, Diagram, Rendering Jarir Head Office’s design addresses both the harsh outside environment and the needs of a 21st century office environment using long established archetypical forms from the Riyadh region: monolithic building mass, the tent, and the courtyard. The office tower – a 20-story, 105-meter-tall, square, monolithic structure-anchors the site on the Riyadh skyline, with a new and native-inspired landmark. Its angulated stone- punched window articulation creates a vibrant modern building that responds to its environment. During the day the façade provides for a self-shading enclosure that protects the building from the harsh outside environment whereas at night the tower becomes a light beacon on the skyline. Inside the head office, a series of triple and double height courtyards provide formal and informal places for an enhanced and collaborative work environment throughout the building.

ALBANY MARINA RESIDENCES - RECORDING STUDIO Resort Complex Commissioned and Under Construction

Program : Recording Studio in Marina Resorts Commisioned by : Tavistock Group Location : Nassau, Bahamas My Experience : Design Intern Diagram and Rendering Albany Marina Residences are five to six story buildings with predominantly residential program and some retail on the ground floor of Buildings. In addition to this program, a small recording studio in prominent location is requested. The studio is located on the most prominent site in the entire resort, sitting next to the public plaza and on the junction connecting Beachside and Northside amenities. Since it is surrounded by public space, the circular shape allows for free circulation around it. The height limit of 20ft preserves the views from Building 3. The program of the recording studio consists of two main zones. One - the tracking area and lounge - will mainly be used by the artists, while the other hosts the academy and administration. The Recording rooms and lounge take advantage of the amazing views of the marina and the main entrance is located towards the Albany Plaza.

ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIVE FACADE FOR PERTH

Program : 60,000 Capacity Multi Purpose Stadium Location : Perth, western Australia, Australia Client : Government of Western Australia My Experience : Project Designer 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.

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

The focus of this exercise was 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.
