A Geometrical Parasite... ...emerged from the idea that a simple and conventional form becomes infected by an extraneous geometrical illness that lives and feeds itself from a rich and powerful body of fully functional and extremely practical formal qualities. The drawings not only represent what it could be like if a geometrical parasite took over a simple elegant shape, but it could also be an abstract representation of architecture as a study of extraordinary geometry...

MALL-OPOLIS What is the future of Shopping Malls in the US for the following twenty years?

PROJECT TYPE: Academic - UIC School of Architecture PROJECT LOCATION + YEAR: Schaumburg, IL - Fall 2012 PROFESSOR: Judith de Jong TYPOLOGY: Shopping Mall / Transportation Hub STATUS: Concept PROJECT DESCRIPTION: In the year 2032, the population of the Chicago Metropolitan area, specifically of the suburbs, has skyrocketed from nine million to fourteen million people. Accordingly the suburbs have encountered a problem with transportation and destinations for entertainment and interactive social activities. To meet these commands, suburban municipalities join together to develop transportation alternatives that reflect and project the ever increasing economical and political power of the suburbs. The city proposes a new transportation hub that takes advantage of the existing successful system of the Woodfield Mall, taking into consideration the incredibly well organized system of growth over the years, and utilizing it as the model for organization of the various programmatic elements and transportation systems that collide all in one

The analysis of the Chicago Metropolitan Area investigates (1) the growth of the city over the past century, (2) the areas through out the city that have been the most economically influential and (3) the network of fright train transportation hubs. Along with many other studies of various urban characteristics of the city, the project responds to the idea that the Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, IL will become the second most influential development of the Chicago Metropolitan Area, being a host of a variety of transportation methods, entertainment, shopping and supporting programmatic characteristics found in the typical urban fabric of the city.

DPI TOWER “The Sky is the Limit”

PROJECT TYPE: Academic - UIC School of Architecture PROJECT LOCATION + YEAR: Chicago, IL - Fall 2010 PROFESSOR: Ryan Palider TYPOLOGY: Multi-Purpose Tower STATUS: Concept PROJECT DESCRIPTION: DPI Tower is the result of the investigation of the relationship between urban characteristics of the city when those are implemented in a high-rise. The building is located in the intersection of La Salle St + Monroe St, one of Chicago’s Loop most sky-scraper-dense area. Due to its busy surroundings the site lacks of open green space for people to utilize, such issue evolved into the implementation of plaza green space, not only in the base of the building, but throughout its facade. This architectural problem led to the implementation of a geometrical solution that took the idea of simply stacking floor plates (as typically done) with a different profile each, achieved with the very simple geometrical rule of unit to grid. The solution not only serves its purpose of generating space in the facade, but also allows different formal conditions to generate a cohesive geometrical composition.

POCKET LIBRARY A Sub-Divison of the Whole

PROJECT TYPE: Academic - UIC School of Architecture PROJECT LOCATION + YEAR: Spring 2012 PROFESSOR: Laura Fehlberg TYPOLOGY: Library STATUS: Concept PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The design of the library is based on the idea of subdivision of space and re-interpreting its meaning in an unconventional way. The process sub-divides a whole in two and can be seen as x/2. Such process is repeated until the scale of an individual piece is programmable. The adjacencies of individual pieces work together in two different ways, the first one is to create outdoor space throughout the building by selecting adjacent pieces to make of this free space continuous and open throughout the entire mass. The second one depends on the same quality of adjacencies but this time to create continuous indoor public space throughout the project. Along this continuous circulation the rest of the pieces are distributed for five different types of library into one, which all connect with a continuous non-private space

DESIGN TEAM: Cheryn Al-Hayek - Timothy Baldwing - Marko Dumlija Daniel Faczek - Kristian Gehl - Ryan Hernandez Ryan Odom - Kevin Pazik - Jeisler Salunga - Erick Sanchez - Aqsa Tahir - Shuya Washido - Yuen Yeung PROJECT INVOLVEMENT: catenary curve system computation tensegrity digital computation final drawings + graphics object construction *all computation was done using Grasshopper

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: To achieve the most dramatic changes between versions and create an environment in which several different scenes, if not the entire play Rhinoceros, can take place in, our group decided to create a deformed and reactive surface attached to four tensegrities. By flexing the nine foot high tensegrities, the object expands in width, and the surface nears the ground plane, adjusting the catenaries, which may begin to touch the ground, or hang at a different height. The tensegrities allow for the surface to hang, and when the catenaries begin to shroud the four structures, the catenary system looks as if it holds itself up. One of the main ideas was to create an architectural object that could offer change locally and changes globally simultaneously, not only experiencing a change around you but also a change that happens where someone else is experiencing a different change at a completely different location

STATUS: Built PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Located in the green fields of the former Thempelhof International Airport, the gardens in the middle of the immense green lawn provide people a distraction from everyday life. Designed to be part of such experience, an object stands there passive and belonging to the context. The nine-piece transformable pavilion is an architectural object designed with two main ideas in mind, one to create an artifact that generates urban space where people can hangout, play, or even simply lay on, and the other to create a collection of objects which the gardeners could utilize for different purposes. Some of the programmatic elements that they desired included spaces for storage, composting, bathroom, kitchen/bar, boom box, amphitheater, among others. The team designed an object made of nine different pieces, each serving a particular function desired by the client

EGG COTTAGE Funny, Awkward but Precisely Beautiful

PROJECT TYPE: Academic - UIC School of Architecture PROJECT LOCATION + YEAR: somewhere in the forest - Spring 2013 PROFESSOR: Paul Preissner TYPOLOGY: Just a cottage STATUS: Concept PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Egg Cottage is the result of a “what if” approach to architecture. The curiosity or subject in question directed towards the architectural paradigm that our culture has created over the years; a building has to look like ‘building’, cohesive, pretty and functionally successful. The approach was to design with the opposite approach to such typical process, rather than exploring cohesive geometry, the exploration becomes of unconventional geometrical forms that look funny, ugly, awkward, often sad. As a result, an object form with a sort of character is created, the idea of character evolves with the exploration of applying “ugly” colors in unusual ways. A big part of the design process was to create perfect well crafted objects with the scale of a single-family cottage located (along with other four) somewhere in the woods. In these cottages, only the ground is inhabitable


GEOMETRICAL COMPOSITION: Object - An exploration of single atypical forms (characters)

COLOR COMPOSITION STUDY Along the design process, there was an investigation of an ‘ugly’ color scheme, colors that don’t look too well when combined. In combination with the colors, there was an investigation of awkward funny compositions, where often times it appears that the paint pattern was a mistake, or an accident

UIC FLAMES SOCCER STADIUM 3000 Spectator Soccer Stadium

PROJECT TYPE: Professional - JGMA PROJECT LOCATION: Chicago, IL YEAR: Fall 2012

DESIGN TEAM: Juan Gabriel Moreno - Principal John Rausch - Project Manager Jose C Garcia - Project Designer + Architect Dan Spore - Renderings PROJECT INVOLVEMENT: Conceptual Design Drawings + Graphics

TYPOLOGY: Athletic Facility STATUS: Concept PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The project is the result of an ambitious series of programmatic and contextual responses that provides not only an icon for the university, but an engine of pride for the players and student spectators of their school. The design strongly considers the current soccer facility’s need for a distinct identity and, equally, its limited space for comfortable, sheltered seating. The design provides official seating for 3000 spectators. By extending this building mass around the soccer field with vegetated earth berms, the design is able to accommodate up to 5000 spectators and create a stadium which appears to seamlessly fit within its context. The geometrical solution not only responds to the programmatic spaces, but also to the way people would circulate through out, making you approach to the stadium part of the experience when watching a Flames Soccer game

PROJECT LOCATION: Chicago, IL YEAR: 2015 TYPOLOGY: Collaborative Space - Educational - Administration

PROJECT INVOLVEMENT: Project Analysis Lead Conceptual Design Lead Image production

STATUS: Competition PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Core Commons aspires to challenge multiple architectural paradigms and, in doing so, become a learning laboratory in which students will do the same. The product is an adaption of the open and collaborative architecture studio environment to a high school setting, while encouraging programmatic mixing with the everyday public. By flipping the typical high-rise paradigm of the central service core to an exo-circulatory shell, we asserted a variety of affects: Freeing of the floor plan for continuous and flexible use; disparate “floating� programmatic volumes are connected to shared open spaces, encouraging collaboration within floors and facilitating casual between-class interaction and social learning. Activation of the facade and expression of essential architectural elements serves as an immersive learning tools.

TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH A Visioned Master Plan of Traditional and Contemporary Worship

PROJECT TYPE: Professional - JGMA

DESIGN TEAM: Juan Gabriel Moreno - Principal Jose C Garcia - Project Manager + Project Architect

PROJECT LOCATION: Crown Point, IN YEAR: Summer-Fall 2014

PROJECT INVOLVEMENT: Project Analysis Conceptual Design Schematic Design Drawings + Renderings

TYPOLOGY: Religious, Educational STATUS: Design Development

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Concise and efficient master plan that addresses issues with space needs, security, parking . JGMA’s goal is to redevelop interior spaces and plan an efficient layout, designing a visionary design for new construction, keeping in mind the context by respecting the existing church and material pallet through the site. New program includes a new Contemporary Worship, additional classrooms and a Gymnasium; all these connected by a Common Space with the main entry and ample space for social gatherings for before and after worship. By placing the new Contemporary Worship space to the north of the existing church, we connect the new design with the existing by continuing the roof line through, creating a direct relationship with the existing context. The design also respects the existing by using similar materials, including limestone and corten steel as the main material pallet.

PROJECT TYPE: Professional - JGMA

DESIGN TEAM: Juan Gabriel Moreno - Principal Jason P Nuttelman - Project Principal Michael Cady - Project Manager Jose C Garcia - Project Architect / Designer

PROJECT LOCATION: Wellington Green, FL YEAR: 2014 - 2016

PROJECT INVOLVEMENT: Conceptual Design Schematic Design Design Development Constructions Documents Construction Administration (2016)

TYPOLOGY: Retail

STATUS: Currently under construction- To be completed Holidays 2016 PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Transformation of existing anchor departmental store into a ten-screen movie theater, including a restaurant with bar area, and lounge space. The project encompasses the renovation and re-partition of interior spaces as well as the renovation of the main southern facade into a brand new refined and welcoming grand entry. The interior layout is mostly dictated by the current structure conditions, and we were able to locate the theater within the current column layout with the exception of the bigger theaters, which because of screen height requirements required us to lift the roof at these specific locations. The facade renovation involves the implementation of not only crucial functional elements but also the implementation of building constraints and limitations of existing structure. The design solution consists of a single formal gesture that incorporates all elements into one
