The Ritz Carlton Residences: Phase 2 Proposition Summer/Spring 2013 :: Guerin|Glass Architects Waikiki, Hawaii

Programming and schematic design diagrams were produced for presentation to the Waikiki mayor and community. Together, four of us produced a 3d model and compiled view corridor studies and elevations. The tower works to offer mixeduse commodities to its residents while reenergizing the community.

Joseph House

Summer/Spring 2013 :: Guerin|Glass Architects Joseph, Oregon

12


The Joseph House represents both a prototype for sustainable construction and living for the client and as a source for experimental workflow for myself and the firm. Lax deadlines and unconventional client desires lead to an interesting process of documentation, renders, and discussion between client, designers, drafters and engineers to try and devise details and systems that fit the client’s desires, including only using materials from his land and possibly being off grid. I worked with Scott Glass to conceptualize and detail the drawings but was also given individual responsibilities in terms of documentation and representation.

Fabric Formed Column Spring 2013

20


Concrete was investigated and tested as a structural material through the use of sewn fabric form work. A semester long exploration sprouted from small scale tests and research to 3d models and multiple full scale, concrete casts. The efficiency and economy of fabric forms lead to easy iteration by two people and evolved into a prototypical modular column- able to be cast and constructed by the means of two people no limited heavy machinery. Project was chosen to be presented during the school’s material lab’s opening fall show, “Think Concrete”. Duration/ 1 semester. Partner/ Ryan Rasmussen. 21


Homeless families present a specialized niche within the homeless community. Program and theoretical site were studied and agreed upon in conjunction with the City of Austin and classmates as we proposed 10 different schemes for family shelters on 4 sites around Austin. Duration/ 5 weeks.

22

Housing Homeless Families Spring 2013


23


Housing the Homeless: Most Mobile Home Working closely with Overland Partners of San Antonio, research and analysis of the homeless condition highlighted a need for personal mobility and shelter. Most Mobile Home mitigates the need for efficient, secure storage of all personal items and mobility for a homeless job seeker while embodying a sense of empowerment and ownership. Urban and psychological variables were studied as well. Duration/ 2 weeks.

Social housing is explored in a 1-hectare slice of a 5.5-hectare swath of an industrial zone east of Paris. Circulation cores are extruded from a democratic grid laid across the site, and units are arranged onto the cores to generate higher density at the rear of the site and lower population density closer to the road. Commercial space energizes the roadside and draws people down the strips of buildings. Completed at the École

Nationale SupÊrieure d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville during a semester abroad. Partner/ Ryan Rasmussen Duration/ 5 weeks. 26

A synthetic beach takes the theatrical essence of the deck apron and the technical aspects of the launch decks and combines them— generating a surface condition that allows for the organization of program along it by means of a structural spine and walkway. A community rowing center situated on Lady Bird Lake serves both trained rowers and amateurs alike. The program includes lockers, a gym, team room, rowing hull storage and community room. Snake skeletons inspire expressed structure along the raised walkway and within the storage bays. Structure is explored in a 1/2� = 1'-0� bay model. Duration/ 1 semester. 30

Hands-on construction and design input go into a small garden shed and steel mailbox for four consecutive lots. Reclaimed materials and a low budget foster an efficient and simple design for the shed. An aqua-jet cut door slides to secure the tools inside. Duration/ 8 weeks.

Case Study: Oslo Opera House Fall 2011

Model built at 2”= 1’-0”

42


Snohetta’s Oslo Opera House establishes expansive visual criteria and an unorthodox structural solution to meet it. Wide views of the fjord are possible due to lateral supports of structural glass, not concrete or steel. A glass curtain wall and massive glass lateral supports meet a white marble parapet on the structure’s habitable roof. Research and construction duration/ 4 weeks. Partner/ Ryan Rasmussen 43


Bus Stop Fall 2010

The humble corner of 5th and Medina is a point of foreshadowed density, community and expanded bus routes within the urban fabric. The inherent geometry of a circle translates to a double-sided circular bench facilitating more communal, interior seating and private, external seating. The form of the stop's shade parallels a chrysalis and further highlights an internal nuance of centralized community and external, radiating privacy. Duration/ 4 weeks. 44
