RAILS TO TRAILS Columbia, SC Bike Terminal. 2011 In Collaboration With: Ryan Newman + Greg Gobat

This project is part of a master plan intended to transform the corridor that was once used by the railroad system into a bike trail that goes from the suburbs to downtown Columbia. The form of the terminal’s canopy was derived from carbon fiber weaving which is used to create light weight bikes. The steel and glass structure its supported by a pedestrian bridge that crosses over the site. The bike terminal houses all of the facilities for the bike trail users. The program of the terminal includes a bike rental station, commuter bike racks, restrooms, showers changing rooms and lockers to facilitate the transition of the users from the bike trail to the city.

COFFEE BEAN EXPRESS Anderson, SC Coffee Shop. 2012

This project is a design for the fictitious coffee shop company Coffee Bean Express. The building’s flowing form is an icon that customers can easily identify and it is meant to convey motion. The company caters mostly to customers on the go, for this reason the buildings program is very minimal. The building’s program includes an office, bathroom, work area, drive thru window, walk-up window, and small outdoor seating area. The building’s design focuses mainly on efficiency to help the business produce the most amount of product (coffee) in the least amount of time. The organization of the work space helps the employees serve both walk up and drive through customers in a quick and efficient manner. This design will be replicated at all of the Coffee Bean Express locations nationwide, for this reason is constructed using prefabricated materials. Steel for the structure, and prefabricated concrete panels for three of its walls. The fourth wall is a glass facade that allows the customers waiting on the drive thru line to see the baristas at work and at the same time allows natural light into the work space.

LA COLMENA Barcelona, Spain Community Center. 2011 In Collaboration with: Thomas Campell

The Site for this project is a block in Poble Nou, the old industrial district of Barcelona. As a result the block contained many unused industrial warehouses. Many of these warehouses were still structurally sound but lacked a purpose and function. This project uses the unused spaces in the block to create a community center for the people of Poble Nou. We wanted to make the interior of the block a destination not only for the people in the neighborhood but also for the rest of Barcelona. Instead of demolishing the warehouses we decided to incorporate them into the community center. By conserving many of the industrial buildings in the interior of the block, our project will have a positive impact on the community and serve as a reminder of the neighborhood’s industrial past. private

FACADE TYPES

Bees have some of the most successful communities on the planet; throughout history the bee hive has been used by many civilizations as a symbol of community and industry. For this reason we named the community center “La Colmena� which means bee hive in Spanish. We also chose to implement the hexagon into our facade design as a reference of the bee hive. The facade type used is determined by the program that is housed in each space and their location relative to other programs.

URBAN STACKING Clemson, SC Student Housing. 2012

This project is a modular approach to student housing that is meant to replace Stackable Units building is composed of two types of the Johnstone building on Clemson’s Campus. Most ofThe the living facilities on prefab modular living units, single and double.The are madeyear of reinforced campus are in poor condition and outdated. As result Withunitseach that concrete do not require additional strucpasses, the number of students that choose to live off campus increases. The ture. during the construction process the units are stacked style to create the different students of today are more independent, and prefer apartment housing. levels of the building. This building is part of a project that will provide better living conditions for students, and make campus not just a great place for learning but also living. When construction occurs on campus, time is a very important factor. The modular construction system is a very efficient construction method, that reduces construction time, waste, and has less negative effects on the environment.

The southern facade of the building is composed of singleloaded corridors that are protected from the sun by a slatted shading armature. This shading system is calibrated to shade the building during the summer and allow the sun to penetrate during the winter. This system helps reduce cooling and heating cost of the building.

DENCITY

Chicago, IL Vertical City. 2012 eVolo 2013 Skyscraper Competition Entry DenCity is a prototypical skyscraper which will allow the city of Chicago to expand and avoid urban sprawl. The reason why cities spread outward is because there is no “space” left to build in their dense centers. But this is not true there are still millions of square feet that are not used. This space is located above and between buildings and streets. The DenCity will take advantage of this unused space to grow and create a vertical extension of the city. The program of the building is composed of residential units, a K-12 school, public spaces, commercial units (mall, movie theaters, restaurants, and grocery stores), sky parks that bring green spaces to the city and a metro terminal at its base the base. This mixed density and access to the public transportation system will bring help reduce urban sprawl, bring people back to the city and allow them to live, work, and learn in an integrating, sustainable and well connected environment.

Chicago’s Urban Sprawl

Solution

To avoid the problems associated with urban sprawl, and still be able to support it’s growing population ,Chicago must expand vertically. For this vertical sprawl to occur a new type of skyscraper must be created, a DenCity. This building will grow in the in the unused space in the city block. Once completed it will be self sustaining and will include all of the infrastructure necessary to support its citizens. The new city will be connected to the rest of Chicago by the metro system. The building will actively engage the Washington/Wells Station, which has connection to four of the six lines of the Chicago metro system. This mixed density and access to the public transportation system will allow citizens live and work in an integrating, sustainable and well connected environment. Current Trend

City Growth

The DenCity will take advantage of the unused space and grow like a plant grows to capture sunlight; Instead of sunlight the city will grow to capture space. The building is composed of stacked units. As the city grows these units deform to obtain better views, grow in a different direction, and allow natural light into existing buildings. This growth creates the diverse spaces that accommodate the building’s Academic mixed program.

Residential Sky Park Program

The buildings surrounding the site are mostly composed of office Terminal space. In response the program of the DenCity is composed of residential Retail units, public spaces, commercial units (mall,movie tethers, restaurants, and grocery stores), sky parks that bring green spaces to the city and a metro terminal that connects the DenCity to the rest of Chicago.

Above/Around

Structure

The building uses a diagrid structural system to support its cantilevered branches. These branches are collection of units. Each of the units has its own substructure composed of a beam and column grid system and concrete floor slabs.

Circulation

Each of the segments of the branches has its own stairs and elevators that are connected to rest of the circulation system by corridors located on floors that are at the same level.

PUZZLE BOX 2010 Woodwork

At the end of the first semester of my second year of studying architecture, our professor asked us to create a case for our portfolio. The case had to store the portfolio and display it. My design for the portfolio case is a puzzle box. To get to the portfolio one must slide pieces of the puzzle, these sliding pieces contain have words and their definitions printed on them. These words were new terms and concepts that I learned during the semester. After removing all of the pieces and uncovering the portfolio the box can be transformed into a display case by using its sliding puzzle pieces for support. The main theme of the semester was tectonics (the connection between materials). For this reason I decided to create my puzzle box using different types of woodworking joints to connect the static parts of the box. I crafted each of the parts in the in the wood shop.
