DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Our interdisciplinary team combines the skills of landscape architecture and product design. We lead a design process that is both conceptual and contextual, visionary but pragmatic. Our team demonstrates experience using both strong bold vision and keenness for fine detail that determines the quality of the user’s experience. We aim to produce unique open spaces, installations, and products. Our strength is to create overall design strategies based in local context. These strategies enable us to maintain the initial design approach throughout the whole process. Based in Berlin, Germany, we use the creative background of the city to enrich our vision and ideas on a daily basis. The Wynwood Gateway Park competition is a great opportunity to reveal and make visible the vast expanse of culturally - and environmentally - rich treasure of Miami Dawntown. Our conceptual approach for this project will further enhance prospects of representative image, environmental stewardship, cultural integration, and community engagment. All with the goal to make the Gateway Park a physically, socially, accessible and connected location. We strongly believe the district needs an iconic project, an innovative installation that will create a unique sense of place, enhancing the experiential and aesthetic impact of the area. Committed to a transformative solution of quality experience to give to Wynwood a prominent Gateway, we hope to be given the opportunity to engage in this exciting metropolitan park adventure.

Design Philosophy My vision of design is based on the conjunction of the different components that not only define design as an art, but also demonstrates the harmonious relationship between the built and natural worlds. It is my goal to create synergy between the individuals that conceive my art, and all its expressions, as form of living. Design for me is a dynamic art that inevitably sculpts our environment, community and lives. I am often struck by the feeling that urban design chose me to be its adherent learner. I have vivid memories as a young girl of carrying bricks and bringing water to mix the concrete for the foundation and columns for the home that my family and I built together. My grandmother thought me gardening and how to care for living nature growing on our back yard. Little they know that they were also teaching me the nature of community. It is this sense of community and the gift of creativity that inspires me to passionately continue pursuing a career in urban design and to find the balance between sustainable design spaces in the realm of human experience. My work focus includes investigating context-driven concept solutions fostering community and environment embracing built, civic and natural realms.

TEAM 3                                   


PHILOSOPHY: I believe that a disciplined design process will lead to an authentic design solution. The desire to create a unique, personalized experience is the driving force behind all of my work. Communicating a story through design is a challenging puzzle that can have many answers. My process includes using free-association thinking to identify and solve complex problems, and the use of trends in materials and technology to engage and educate the end user. Designing an exceptional experience begins by understanding the client’s desired reaction of it’s audience or end-user and working backwards to find the right solution. This information is used to craft a series of touch points that are staged throughout a journey that becomes the experience. Storytelling becomes an important design element that connects each of the touch points, creating a unified message. Communicating this to a wide audience requires the use of various design elements that can speak at different volumes. An effective experience creates a special bond between the participant and the host that will encourage loyalty, appreciation, and good publicity. I always hope that my work will engage the senses, make people smile, laugh, and realize that there is always another person behind any creation.

DESIGN TEAM PHILOSOPHY

The firm insists on the importance of architecture and the design of the city as a singular investigation where inquiry and realization, poetry and practicality, history and invention are inextricably linked. A typological, historical, contextual, and climatological understanding informs the work. Projects engage contemporary building practices while maintaining an interest in what is culturally resonant about a specific place and how each project can reflect this. As such, the work of the practice is eclectic, exploring a range of languages and building types informed by the particulars of each setting. Finally, there is a pre-occupation with a range of incidental themes such as the importance of perspective and the “visual� in the choreography of space; thus the transfiguration of the commonplace through architecturally staged phenomena has been a consistent goal of the work.

TEAM 6                                   


Our firm is founded on the precept of collaborative creation. A finely tuned collaborative studio of distinct talents, academic interests and professional strengths launched on the shared strength of over 50 years of professional accomplishment in the fields of urban design, architectural design, planning, development and project management.

Our passion is design. Our goal is to create places with lasting value for the communities they serve.

Design is the creative focus of our process - a participatory process in which we bring together all stakeholders and specialists (citizens, economists, engineers, architects, developers, policy makers, government officials, and builders) to a complete and wellrounded understanding of the project’s attributes. Our designs build on the unique character and positive qualities inherited by each place in which we are privileged to work. By working at many scales, we find ways of coordinating the design of individual buildings; the public spaces they help create; the neighborhoods, cities and urban spaces of which they are a part; and the regional culture they celebrate into a viable and vital urban tapestry. We see that as our mission. As individuals and as a team, we have that sense of purpose in common, and we apply it diligently and passionately to help guide us in identifying appropriate projects. Along with our alliance partners, we offer a wide range of design services within four primary categories: urban design; architectural design; interior design; and master planning. Our goal is to create urban space of the highest quality, our approach is comprehensive, and while our core competency is urban design it is informed by a full understanding of the role that architectural form, building details, and streetscape character play in creating and reflecting the values of diverse, economically successful, human-scale, and ecologically respectful communities.

ESM

Modular Growth

Throughout the universe: we find common expressions of elements that are the building blocks to larger and more sophisticated compositions. ESM applies this natural order to architecture and urbanism. In order to understand and solve these complex systems the first attempt must be to simplify them by finding commonalities and defining their modules. Modules can be sometimes combined, to create other sequences that make up the structures to larger systems. Modules are applied to single family and multi-family design; the modular single house may be placed on different lot types to become detached, semi-detached or attached (town-house).ESM has been designed to grow organically over time. Both the housing stock and the planning evolves with the needs of the community by the addition of modules and the consolidation of parcels systematically.

E a st BAY HARBOR Tianjin, China | Planned

On newly sea-reclaimed land, Tianjin East Bay Harbor is one of the few locations that has direct access to the Bohai Sea in Tianjin. Adjacent to the new cruise terminal, the project seeks to establish the memory of the port by utilizing structures and materials found in functioning ports, such as shipping containers, while creating a new marine ecosystem and wetlands. The port is therefore reused in an artistic manner within the architecture of the project both in its units and as monuments at key points. They become gateways into nature and finally part of nature itself, an economical and environmental way to construct both architecture and the landscape - two very important aspects of any project these days.

Originally built in the early 1920’s as the American Bakeries Company, The Bakehouse Art Complex (BAC) purchased the property and retrofitted the facility into working studios for artists and exhibition galleries. This project attempts to redefine and upgrade their primary exterior event space and lobby, improving the circulation and visibility to both the gallery and the studios. For the exterior event space we conceived an intervention that is endowed with a considerable level of autonomy. By clearly defining the space and providing a compatible, yet distinct language, the intrinsic characteristics of both existing and proposed are redefined in a new choreographed space. This strategy provides a location for out-door venues as well as a welcoming entrance to the BAC’s facility. The design provides a well defined three-dimensional space that becomes the heart of the new BAC. The objective for the lobby is the creation of a space that captures the essence of the former bakehouse while incorporating contemporary elements such as industrial lighting, a stainless steel table and repurposed wood. This ensemble results in a nostalgic and elegant atmosphere.

Nuevo Palermo

Buenos Aires, Argentina

An ecological-cultural piece integrated to the surroundings, blurring the frontiers between dichotomies like natural and built, public and private environments, all in a coherent vision that addresses the needs of one of the most desirable areas of Buenos Aires. Project Status: Site Area:

Planned 107 Acres

Located along the Palermo Railway tracks in Buenos Aires, the site of Nuevo Palermo is bisected by an active railroad and flanked by two socially and typologically dissimilar neighborhoods, Palermo Hollywood and Palermo Soho, whose only shared characteristic is a lack of green space. This proposal for the Palermo Railway Tracks Development Master Plan Competition is an ecologically and culturally aimed project that will create a destination Park, occupying 65 percent of the land, and commercial space on the remaining expanse that will employ green roofs and other open spaces that add to nearly 90 percent of the site as a green space. Inspired by the Humid Pampa ecosystem, the Park’s landscape would feature prairies, retaining ponds, grass meadows and isolated forests strategically arranged for social use, and aiming to buffer the the train line. while strategically allowing for open views to buildings and the adjacent neighborhoods.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY We believe in architecture's capacity to attend society's everyday problems and its ability to project the world we want to live in. At the same time, architecture has to address issues of adaptation and transformation in a constantly evolving society where people's lifestyles are continuously changing. As a manifestation of human aspirations, architecture should also be grounded in a conscious effort to preserve our limited resources. We believe that both good design and profitability should go by the hand. Good architecture is inherently ecological and can also be a tool for social change and economic growth. Our passion for what we do is greatly derived from architecture's ability to positively affect people's quality of life. We aim to design spaces and environments in which people live and interact with one another, while at the same time promoting every user's discovery process of their surroundings. We develop abstract ideas and transform them into spatial formations. During this transformation process many considerations, like site, cultural and economic environment, client's programmatic needs and budget constraints, among others, have a baring effect in the form and the space. We aspire to create environments, buildings, or cities where design, technology, and finance work in unison, enabling an environment for innovation. We design in a non-linear process, were problem and solution can emerge together with no definite direction of flow. We understand architecture also as a visual art where buildings and spaces should speak for themselves, and with the hope that they may also serve and inspire their communities.

Adapting them to the surrounding context of the projects. We believe on following certain key points to achieve successful developments. Creativity responds to one of them, to one of our design criteria. we are constantly looking to innovate with unique concepts that can bring satisfaction both to the client and the community where the project is submerge. Teamwork is a fundamental instrument on giving form to the concerns of every project. That is why we gathered a group of ambitious professionals in which we combine architecture, landscape, engineering and environmental design to reach our goals. Sustainability is a variable involve in the creation of our projects. The idea of long term architecture for the future communities translates in generating spaces sensible to the urban context. We are convinced that the possibility of reusing resources and protecting the environment can support a useful and responsible design. We like to develop ventures where they help society to rise their spirit through architecture and design. In an emerging community, clear ideas are a necessity to integrate society, culture, health and environment. Bring community together in a space created to combine leisure and consciousness is a challenge that we embrace. Generate balance and integration between a design and its context is a must on building a higher commitment with the city.

OUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Our main concerns are related with form as an activation of space in as much as architecture engages prolifically with the city. We firmly believe in all encompassing ideas that can deal both with past and future in present form. Architecture and design needs critical reflection necessary to be innovative without losing awareness of the urban context. Our sensibility is focused on the creation of didactic spaces where people are able to have significant experiences. In its ideal state architecture allows the encounter of people in the public space. It is about how form sets the spatial conditions necessary for the encouragement and existence of the common allowing all different kinds of events and activities where inclusion prevails over exclusion.

LABYRINTH - HONORABLE MENTION

The Museum of Architecture in Buenos Aires (MARQ) invited architects all over the world to submit proposals for the new pavilion and extension of the gallery space. We proposed that the new extension should bring new questions on how architecture could be consumed. What can architecture say about architecture ? What are the strenghts whithin itself that allows architecture to be thought-out to itself? The pavilion is like a skeleton awaiting activation. The bodies and the flesh will avoid the procrastination of an empty white box. It will be the architecture, the one that will pretend to return movement to itself.

The new Technology and Science center of Argentina invited architects all over the world to submit proposals for the new Science Park. We understand science as a network of information referenced to itself, working together to build a collective knowledge. Architecture is a physical reference point, the park will be referenced to it. The grid and the repetition of columns will strengthen the idea, forming a matrix. Inside it, wild vegetation will be scattered, each part representing a region of Argentina’s landscapes. As it happens in the collective imaginary of citizens, these are shuffled randomly. With minimal elements and encouraged by the idea that sometimes less is enough, architecture floats on top of a vegetation carpet. The grid organizes spaces and defines the size and location of each of these islands. A network of paths connects the islands. The Science Park is a blanket of wild nature on top of which architecture floats like islands clutching to a grid of columns.

MAN LOOKING SOUTHEAST

In a private area of Buenos Aires suburbs, a typical house. On top of it a room whose owner defined as “the creative shelter”, it’s roof will host a storm observation point, a place to look far beyond the horizon. As a creative gesture the place is named “Man looking southeast.” In solitary stillness, the island has the illusory promise of advertising a distorted bench. Floating on an asphalt membrane sea, the impunity that the island supposes even has its own fragments of green nature. But the man waiting for the storms has a box with cloud on his face that prevents him to see the real storms coming.

Not all buildings are Architecture. Architecture is the realm in which the human condition can dream, imagine, create, and make. It allows us to confront questions of our human existence within space and time; it is deeply engaged in the metaphysical question of the human [self] and the physical world. However, the modern human experience seems to replace dreams, desires and creativity with hyper realities of image and superficial commodity. Essential to the human condition, architecture provides the duality between the physical and ontological aspects of architectonic form and the making of space through the phenomenological realms of silence, light and shadow. Modernism, however, has turned into a hyper-chaotic superficial and visual commodity; a scenography devoid of the authenticity of tectonics and dwelling. Furthermore, an ontological look into the realm of [archi]tectonic manifestation offers a dualistic approach to the actual making of our spatial and built environment. Dwelling is the tectonic manor in which humans exist on the earth and provides the means for making; it is the “Poetics of Construction.� The understanding of tectonic expression and the essential use of the fertile detail, that is to say the joint, being the generator of physical architectonic manifestation, is what gives the human condition its true and honest architecture. My aim is to decelerate the modern human being down from the contemporary ocular-centric exploitation and consumerism; and allow a reconnection to the other human senses through existential and phenomenological [self] awareness within the human condition.

P a g e | 2 of 7 Team Design Philosophy The Wynwood Gateway Park Competition’s Design Criteria in Miami, Florida will result in an engaged community. Our design philosophy is derived from three key elements: client’s needs, function and sustainability. The client’s needs require a place where people can “live, work, and play”. This park will be a place for children, young adults, and families to engage in musical venues and exciting visual arts. The second element is function of the space. It must be an efficiently designed park, using the highest and best use of the area. The final key element is sustainability. The park will endure with energy efficiency along with local building materials to reduce environmental impact and cost. Finally, our plan will give Wynwood Gateway Park the ability to showcase architectural innovation through displaying the talent of local artists. Our design will give people a place where they can enjoy the city life, rich in the cultural heritage of music and art.

One of the unique aspects of the design was the turning wheel put in between all the hangars, allowing the pilots to turn their aircraft and move easily into one of the four hangars. This system allowed the pilots to get their aircraft in and out of the hangars very efficiently without having to move all the airplanes. The design is split into two sections, one for the pilots and the other for business and commercial use.

The building’s primary use was to be a visitor and community center in Alaska. First I started out with a curve design to give it a unique look, making it standout from the simple square box design. The major design focus of the structure was to let in as much light as possible, so you could always see the natural beauty of Alaska. Another unique aspect of the project was the way the building wrapped around the outside plaza; I used this element from the Russian National Library. This gave the building an excellent view of the surrounding land. This design of the visitor center received an honorable mention in competition.

It’s people first. Each member of our team shares the philosophy that design should focus on people first, the people who use and depend on urban parks and cultural amenities to maintain a high quality of life. Our approach to design is community based and process driven. Communication is the foundation of the design process and an invaluable tool for bringing people together to share ideas and foster stewardship. This initial groundwork leads to a deep understanding of wants and needs for the site and how it will ultimately be used. Building Creative Environments. Our team is dedicated to building creative and stimulating projects. We believe the creative process is valuable problem solving tool. Wynwood Gateway holds exciting potential to be a central recreational and cultural amenity, built on innovative design that inspires and informs visitors of all ages, cultures, and demographics. With such a rich historical and cultural history there are abundant sources of inspiration to feed the design process, resulting in a vibrant and dynamic project. For today and tomorrow. We see Wynwood Gateway as being the connective tissue that links downtown and the design district in the immediate present and for future generations as a major recreational and cultural destination. We can provide the level of critical thinking and creative problem solving necessary to draw on the history of the site and incorporate cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities to provide a socially, ecologically, and economically sustainable project that will become a destination with longevity for future generations.
