Student dormitories are often seen as places of constant activity where social interaction and privacy meet in a state of congruence. This project was conceived as two separate bars that twist and turn in order to adapt to the topography of the terrain and increase solar heat gain in a climate that is cold during most of the year. These twists and turns also create indoor and outdoor spaces which then become places of gathering, study, living, etc. The approach to this design was a sustainable one. Solar orientation, indoor air quality, movement, passive lighting and ventilation were all taken into consideration for this project.

Center for Urban Farming Washington, DC _Fall 2010

View from behind the building

10


By creating a public pedestrian link between the residential and commercial areas of Washington, DC and the local farmers markets, the issues of food access and food education are addressed through architectural intervention. As a facility meant for the promotion of urban farming, this Center provides open spaces to be used as farmers markets. The building provides outdoor areas for food growing as well as greenhouses for indoor food growing. It also provides an assembly hall, a restaurant, classrooms and a food store open to the neighborhood when the market is closed.

Proposal for a New School Incisa, Italy _Spring 2011

Collaboration with Peter Randolph, Peerati Upatising and Jennifer Vachon

View from above showing front and outdoor area

16


The purpose of this architecture workshop was to propose a new school for the community of Incisa. Incisa is a small municipality in the Italian region of Tuscany, about 12 miles southeast of Florence. This school was to be located in an abandoned area where a cement refinery used to be.

FLORENCE

Our team’s approach to this project was to clearly define the site’s boundaries in order to relate to the condition of the city, respond to the influences of the site and define the relationship between the academic and athletic programs. The goal was to stitch the site to the city through accessibility and movement.

I contend that urban environments offer the greatest potential for improvement on the quality of life of terminally ill patients who reside in a hospice. As opposed to a more rural environment, urban environments provide the necessary social interaction which allows the patients to distract themselves from their current conditions. By integrating natural elements in the form of gardens and lighting, spaces which are meant for introspection and solace are created. The building follows a sequence in which the users experience a sense of disassociation from the external world the moment they enter. As they follow this sequence, the users experience a sense of calmness as they go through the inner garden. Eventually, they end up in a place of community where the living quarters are. These experiences link themselves to the exterior through views and open spaces that allow for the users to interact socially with world outside.
