01

A Circular Economy for Haiti- Fonds Parisien The goal of this 8 week project was to provide a masterplan for a site in Haiti that would layout local infastructural services, such as sanitation, water, energy, improved agriculture, and aid in economic development. The site developed was adjacent to Quisqueya Natural Park on Lake AzuĂŠi in Fonds Parisien and included an eco-industrial park, eco-tourism facilities and settlements for local people. This student project was designed and completed under the perview of professor Hilary Brown in the Masters of Sutainability in the Urban Environment Program.


02

Lehman College Dormitories After exploring sectional relationships of ground thoughout the Lehman College campus, it was concluded that the most important sectional shifts are used as student gathering areas. These sectional differences allow the students to adopt a specific area as communal and this proved to be an interesting attribute of Lehman College. Keeping this in mind I decided to place the proposal for new dormitories on the Northeastern side of the sports field, next to the Library. This area is unused but can serve as a major campus link, in-terms of movement and can allow for new programs based of student life. This area has major changes in ground elevation similar to the rest of the campus and this is another key reason to place the dormitories in this area, so to adopt some of those interesting sectional differences that create student interactivity.

Description:

Scheme A is based off of the idea to activate the southern end of the campus. The approach was to propose a division of spaces within the south which includes an upper plaza level that comes off of the main path, that can contain program underneath and looks over to a lower level plaza. The arrangement also incudes dormitories which can be arranged in order to create communal spaces

Harlem School of The Arts The design concept for this redesign of The Harlem School of the Arts, focused on inward-facing volumes that create interlocking programs. An open central space encourages social interactions, while the facade and circulation emphasize interactions between the interior and the exterior. This 3rd year architecture school project was developed as a collaborative eort with the students of the art school providing their input at every turn, given that they were our clinets this helped develop a better understanding of how

Gaza Strip Market Habitats & Welcome Center Our design intent was to use this axis perpendicular to the “All Mans Land” as a tool for the way Gaza city and Israel can grow. The main idea behind it was to emphasize the idea of production, distribution and consumption. Keeping in mind traditions of open air markets which exist in this area of Gaza which is Khan Younis, We decided to create communal areas/ nodes where important features come together. These plazas or “Incubators” hold important programs such as: educational centers, water treatment and research facilities, food processing facilities

Fort Tryon Cultural Center The primry goal of this project is to create a cultural and recreational public space. The building is to function as a binding agent between park and residential. to provide more growth to the community in the areas of arts, sports (health), and the environment. The main idea of this exploration can be summed up in two words.; Community outreach. Reaching out to the community and allowing them to learn, gather and be active, with the end goal of enhancing the surrounding environment, people and culture. With the importance of the park and the areas history it became clear that the building should also function as a visitors center that would hold all the information on the park and the cummunity. The site is located in one of NYC’s highest peaks. The importance of the slope allowed for the development of a concept, which spoke to the many changes in elevation, and thus having the community inhabit these different planes of public function.


SITE LOCATION: USA, NEW YORK, MANHATTAN, INWOOD (COMMUNITY DISTRICT 12)

*

THE SELECTION OF THE SITE FOR THE CENTER WAS BASED OFF FINDING A LOCATION UNIQUE WITHIN THE CITY THAT WAS FLOURISHED WITH COMMUNITY ACTIVITY AND HAD ROOM FOR GROWTH.

Case Studies & Precendents The following projects were case studies and precendents which were investigated prior to the start of other academic projects whilst I attended my undergraduate architecture program. These series of case studies involved drawing, drafting, model making, research, collaging, and diagramming as tools of investigation and methods of understanding concept, form and constructability. Some of these precendents included, but are not limited to: The Underground Spa by Carmody and Groarke as seen to the right, the double house by MVRDV, Villa La Roche by Le Corbusier, and Bornhuetter Hall by Ltl Architects.

Session Gym 98 South 4th Street Brooklyn, NY

Sessions Gym is a small fitness center in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The design intent for this gym was to emphasize the materiality and create spaces that could be multi-functional. The open floor plan allowed us to achieve this multi-functional aspect and the small space provided a welcome challenge where we were able to get creative and push the boundaries.

Pool Canopies 765 N. Mountain Rd. Gardiner, Ny These Pool Canpies in Gardiner NY, are part of a larger residential single family home and weekend retreat. The first phase of this project was to design and build the pool and canopies on the property, prior to building the family home. These structures are the first 3D printed forms of this scale in the U.S., and the project was developed as a design build between Kushner Studios and Dshape Enterprises. The project won many awards and mentions, amoung them the Architizer A+ Awards for 3d Printing and Design.

16 Minetta Lane New York, NY

16 Minetta lane was originally a 3-story townhouse in greenwich village; but most recently this project, which commenced in 2013, converted this building from a 3-story to a 5-story structure. It was designed as a family home for an architect, his wife and their twins. The building also houses two courtyard spaces, a basement designed for entertaining and a carraiges house on the rear intended for guest use. The facade of this project is comprised of webbed steel pieces welded together and finished with glass. This provides ample light into the spaces and demonstrates the clear divide between the old and the new. The exterior is suppose to represent a more tree like earthly presence, with the use of wines wraped on the steel and etched glass which mimic the cut bark of a tree. The estimated completion is due in summer of 2019.
