CPP School of Architecture CPP Studio Spring 2020 Instructor: Samuel Clovis 3801 W Temple Ave, Pomona, CA Located on the Cal Poly Pomona Campus, this new school of architecture tower is set to replace the current Classroom, Laboratory & Administration Building. As it moves upwards, both the tower and plinth begin to rotate and enlarge. The top floor of the tower is a full flip and rotation of the bottom floor. This was used to accentuate the purpose of how the program was laid out. There is a switching and flipping of program moving upward from plinth to tower. This was done in order to created forced interaction between program-specific users. At the moments of the conical subtractions, these spaces were used for circulation. The larger subtractions denote primary circulation while the the smaller being program specific.

Tridge CPP Studio Fall 2020 Instructor: Marc Schulitz A bridge excercise with no site, the focus of this assignment was to understand the elements necessary for a working structure with the only programmatic need of a “look in” platform, “look up” platform, and “look down” platform. Tridge uses a steel triangular truss system as its primary structure in order to prevent the typical “cheat” of moment frames to avoid interior bracing. The secondary structure is comprised of interconnected wooden slats that thinly veils the truss while also providing support for the platforms and circulation. The “look in” view is created at the top level via the triangular truss. The wooden slats, or rather lack thereof, create both the “look up” and “look down” view.

Scientist’s Retreat CPP Studio Fall 2020 Instructor: Marc Schulitz Vetter Mountain, Los Angeles, CA Located on Vetter Mountain in Los Angeles, the Scientist’s Retreat works as both as an office space and a housing project. The bridge is separated both structurally and programmatically. Structurally, the truss that supports the bridge is half rectangular, half triangular. The former supporting the enclosed space and the latter the public circulation. The structure cantilevers on both side, teetering at a single point with some added support on one side. This allows visitors to feel as though they are capable of altering the balance of the structure, creating a new relationship with the body and the building. The circulation follows that of an infinity symbol. Starting from the bottom of the public ramp and winding up and around, the flow continues into the intermediate space of the day room which then circles around the private space and then back down via the private space.

ADU is an ADU is an ADU CPP Studio Spring 2021 Instructor: Anton Schneider 3425 W 27th St, Los Angeles, CA Located next to the Luken’s House in West Adams, this project focuses on introducing the typography of the surrounding site in order to challenge the original house’s representation. Luken’s House is an outlier of the site in terms of aestethics, value, and use. The ADU most prominently reintroduces the gable roof into the site in order to better align with the site. The ovely dominant roof protrudes outwards and encapulates the ADU. Windows are cut out of the steep roof to represent the staggering elevation changes on the site. The steep roof extends past the foundation but does not meet the ground to give the impression of a floating mass. From the south, the ADU resembles a flatroof structure but when entering the site it is revealted to be a two story gable roof house.

Patagodia CPP Studio Spring 2021 Instructor: Anton Schneider 1666 N Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA Located in Los Feliz, this mixed-use residential project is geared towards starting families and young adults. The project proposes an urban skate park to provide cross-generational activities as well as introduce a pagoda style staggered roof into the area. The podium anticipates commercial spaces the cater to the residents of the project. A tattoo parlor, donut store, bike shop, and pharmacy are compliments to the tucked in skatepark. With the annual street closure, the skate park extends out of its crevice and spills into the triangle across the street, providing ample and safe space for kids to adults to skate. Constant vertical terracing allows the pagoda roof to wrap around the units until its sliced off at the end. All the while the cores cut into the project to delineate the rows of housing. Each unit experiences a semi-circular cut in order to increase the balcony space. Standing in the balcony has a wall that swoops behind the resident and a roof that swoops above the resident. 28
