SEMPERIAN ANTHROPOLOGICAL CONTAINER ARCHITECTURE DESIGN 8, SUMMER 2012 PROFESSOR ALFONSO PEREZ-MENDEZ GUADALAJARA, JALISCO, MEXICO
Functioning as primary shelter, the container analogizes itself with Gottfried Semper’s four elements of architecture and with the idea that the container could break down and be set up in diﬀerent places in and around Guadalajara. The idea of hearth is realized through the sequence of construction, permitting the inhabitant to visualize construction methodology and grasp the tectonic elements that synchronize forming shelter. Steel columns and beams, like bones, are the primary constructed order to which all other systems are fastened. Secondary steel fins and pipes act like muscles stiﬀening the structure, and dissolve into plates with bolts that aﬃx the skin. The tertial skin consists of reinforced concrete panels with intermediate tracery that holds secondary titanium panels. The constructed systems work to provide refuge from climatic episodes in Guadalajara, specifically deflecting sunlight or bending it through diﬀusion.

SAN MARTIN CHURCH ARCHITECTURE DESIGN 8, SUMMER 2012 PROFESSOR ALFONSO PEREZ-MENDEZ SAN MARTIN DE LAS CANAS, JALISCO, MEXICO
The church is situated upon the central site of San Martin, a town that catalyzed out of tequila production. An aqueduct that flows through the site is key to the townâ€™s livelihood, and is formalized in section through the church and adjacent colonnade. These constructs create a plaza in between furthering the public nature of the site. Calligraphies of materials and systematic site specific composition control sun, wind, and rain, and allow only desired phenomena to filter unto the occupants. San Martin Church elevates perception of the environment and becomes joint to the natural tectonics of site.

Coral Gables Building | Architect Robert Murphy | Built 1962 | Demolished 2012 | Curtain Panels Saved
Alden R oad
BASALT FLOOR + SEATING
Reordering the curtain panels of the Coral Gables building into graceful curves allows them to hang as Murphy intended. Through the juxtaposition of the concrete panels with a complementary steel structural system and pools of water that trace the curves, a monument alluding to Orlandoâ€™s architectural heritage is created. Reflections and shadows of the fifty-year-old panels become a spectacle in the monument as they dance about the water and porous basalt decking. The monument generates a duality between observe and engage through its perpetual form, and seeks to capture the next generation of Orlando.
407 NORTH PARK DRIVE ARCHITECTURE DESIGN 7, FALL 2012 PROFESSOR JOHN MAUDLIN-JERONIMO CHICAGO, ILLINOIS
Applying the functional dimension of organic structure to the tower generates a construction that is crafted in the same plane as nature composes. The ordering system employs a language that patterns itself through dynamisms of the native red oak. A parallel is made between the biological and constructive fabric of Chicago rendering a more cohesive cultural landscape. The trunk becomes the concrete core of the skyscraper. The branches grow into a steel web that supports the slabs, and the leaves are developed into titanium skin. As the tower feathers up and out like the oak, the intersection at ground becomes the anchoring roots. The tower sponges up its residents and disseminates them through the trunk and branches finally allowing views through the leaves. The skin is adapted from the microscopic section of red oak. The skyscraper starts to merge natural and constructive phenomena through its tectonics and becomes iconic in the Chicago skyline.
