NEW NEW ORLEANS /// modern + historic +urban New Orleans (+ Maine)

PREMISE - Generating urban design with cultural exploration, process research, formal expression, and tectonic unity. New Orleans operates as a social laboratory, exhibiting the global concerns of urbanism, while hosting local climactic challenges and strong cultural implications of design. These forces form design constraints that shape responsive architecture.


BACKGROUND - Acadia National Park in Maine hosts rocky slopes and dense

foliage. Below the canopy exists a dark contemplative space hidden from the heavens. Above, the individual trees form a single kinetic surface that complements the ocean in the distance. These two states mirror the levels of internal and communal meditation in yoga. PROGRAM - A yoga retreat on a hill in a cold climate. The response to these

conditions includes a bath house, kitchen + dining, residences + social, and the main yoga space.

SECTION A PERSPECTIVE


BACKGROUND - The Freret Neighborhood hopes to become an arts and commerce vein of the city. The businesses of mostly converted shotgun homes fluctuate in height, and many sites are either vacant or derelict. This project for a prominent corner lot negotiated the residential neighborhood perpendicular to the commercial street. OBSERVATION - The context steps up at the corner and down to both sides, a formal design opportunity. The program for a Latin American Center could benefit from a material palette of stone and steel, contrasting tradition and recent innovation. Thus the design could fit into the gap at the site scale and at the detailing scale with a system light steel and glass between thick service walls.

DEVELOPMENT - The opportunity to connect the residential spaces to the public museum through section was first explored. A triple height atrium looking into the courtyard was developed, and residences were arranged around this space. the museum makes the most of the tight urban space by wrapping around the courtyard.

BACKGROUND - Reconstruction of New Orleans has created an industry

of deconstruction. To integrate into commercial construction, these new operations have to develop industrial space in prime transportation arteries. OBSERVATION - Warehouse design thrives on simplicity and simplicity of

the complicated industrial process. Area flood levels necessitate raised office program. Traffic flow moves from the left to the right of the site. Larger site observations investigated two opposing materials - matte, opaque brick and reflective, translucent glass block. The notion of carving away one material to reveal the characteristics of the second was applied in design.

MASSING AND USE DEVELOPMENT - Simplicity and movement

dictate linear form. In this case, the section became crucial. Raised offices overlooking daylit warehouse space and dedicated truck passage. Efficiency proposed trusses, and the insertion of the office program within that structural system. The conceptual orchestration of the opaque metal and tinted glass material palette strengthened the program.

BACKGROUND - The global understanding of urbanism: buildings edge to

edge with work at the street and residences immediately above so that presence is constant and interactions contain productive complexity. The adaptive reuse of the Warehouse District is a study in urban evolution. OBSERVATION - New high class residential projects have no presence on

the street, instead remaining totally disconnected from place. Following a study of typical openings in the district, the a parti of frame vs. Framed was developed. This discussion with a long, skinny site (20’ x 150’) led to a shooting range for commercial program. Two residential units separated by a light well make up the top floors.

DEVELOPMENT - Louvered residential patios

gain distinct views resulting from the out frame, angle of louvers, and the inner frame. As urbanity dictates, the site is built to the street edge, solid walls separate the neighboring buildings, and light is directed into wells that feed the interior spaces. The sounds baffles of the shooting range mimic the exterior louvers and provide light and views for the space.

COMPETITION - To design a public space for the university campus. ENTRY - a bridge built between the student center and business school with opportunities for passerby of the path below to see the presentation. Inspired by the High Line Park amphitheater, the structure acts as a space to see and be seen. Louvers on the wall of the student center turn and multiply to become a solid screen for projection. Near the business school, the structure splits to navigate around an oak tree that then provides shade. The primary feature of the project is the difference in speed that the function of the space will register, whether sitting still with friends or rushing to class on the pathway below.

BACKGROUND - The population of the New Orleans area fluctuates dramatically in reaction to both

catastrophic and dionysian events. Mardi Gras Indians (a) claim the site during the festival season, and the relative poverty of the area makes it especially susceptible to the devastation of hurricanes. Urban living spaces must be designed to aggregate and service these occurrent influxes.

DEVELOPMENT - At the individual scale, a sleeping space (c) was developed that could offer light and privacy to the occupant, while an indicator of activity to the community. This move combats the sense of vacancy during the nightlife of the site. Moving to the aggregate scale, the form of a wave serves the dual purposes of increasing privacy between spaces and activating the site (d). This form was further refined into the final model (e & f). SECTION 1/8th SCALE
