Raptor Site Little Falls

The design of this bird raptor site is based on movement through the site and around the large rocks and boulders on site. This design is inspired by the nature already on the site and incorporates the natural canopy of the trees. The bird raptor is designed for movement throughout the site to take advantage of the views and nature. Most of the structures are enclosed with glass or fencing so natural air and light can penetrate through. This also takes further advantage of the views from the top of the hill.

Module Process and Development

Section A

The Modern Twin 52 James St. nEWARK, NJ There is a reason James Street is considered historic and not old. Architecture of substance has found a niche within Newark. the basis of our design can be summarized in its title, “the modern Twin.” To clarify, the intent was to emulate the architectural moved made in the surrounding urban fabric, specifically that of 50 James Street. That being said the last fifty years have rendered significant advances in architecture which cannot be disregarded. “The modern Twin” is an attempt to unite the past and present with specific reverenced for what has come before. We divided the composition into its respective parts and dissected the moves made by its architect before interpreting them with a modern framework.
