Bhutan Education City (BEC) is proposed to develop on around 1000 acres of land, strategically located between Bhutan’s International Airport in Paro and its capital city of Thimphu on a concession which is for an aggregate period of 90 years consisting of 3 terms of 30 years each.

1 A-04

The campus will have common facilities like the academic bloc, sports and recreational facilities, medical facilities, cafeteria and residential units. The overall project shall be developed in phases. The campus will be developed to the traditional Bhutanese architecture using locally available materials and resources.

The master planning team developed and analyzed four alternative conceptual frameworks for BEC’s physical master plan. Each of the alternative concepts have been developed with the same program

elements in the same relative proportions. The differences between each are in how the program arrayed on the site, thereby changing the interrelationship between the programs and their synergies.

The natural land forms four main fingers of buildable areas

the ravines between these landforms provide areas for natural habitat

Providing major circulation along a single horizontal contour provides connection between the four land masses

Interaction nodes are created - one for each land mass - and placed along the horizontal connection. Here the most interactive spaces that need high visibility and accessibility are located.

The most public and shared program elements are arrayed along the horizontal spine, providing the Academic Boulevard.

the higher education institutions are placed on the lower hillsides - closer to the access points, student villages on the middle slopes and the more private villas on the upper hillsides. Public vertical transportation provides access up and down the hillsides at each node point.

This project has two buildings in different phases: the lab is in the process of being built and the hospital needs to be marketted. The client had to know if designing a hospital would be profitable in this complex. We designed the hospital, determining what square footage it would need and we tried to fit our client’s programmatic requirements within the building. The lab building had to be redesigned and was given to us after another office had designed the floor plate. We also did an extended study on the exterior space of the two buildings. We determined a circulation system within the complex, a green space for the lab building, and facade systems for both buildings.

Devour Detroit Type: Location: Year: Professor: School:

Bird Sanctuary Detroit, Michigan Thesis, Fifth Year Caroline O’Donnell, Dana Cupkova Cornell Unviersity

EMPTINESS IN CENTRAL DETROIT

Let Detroit go back to the wild. The center of Detroit has become filled with abandoned buildings. These abandoned buildings combined with the amount of parking lots and depopulation make the characteristic of the city fabric that of emptiness. PARKING LOTS

When buildings become abandoned in the inner city, nature punctures through the idealized landscape of where a city, suburb, and wilderness are placed. But the city also becomes empty as the wilderness enters--no one is there to use these new spatial moments of emptiness. Instead these buildings are fenced off or torn down to result in more land indeterminacy. Instead they could be used as shells and considered a part of the wilderness. Michigan Central Station exemplifies this urban condition at the architectural scale. Today, the station contains a quality of wilderness that is attained through its abandoned state that can inform an urban solution for the city of Detroit. 20

Programmatic Diagram of nodes and branches

Method for design consists of analyzing the structure and physical makeup of a peapod and pineapple to generate a structural organization for program. I used Grasshopper, an add-on to Rhinoceros to create a peapod structure. The structure of the peapod provides the foundation for the branches within the building. These branches are centered around nodes, an addition from my partner who analyzed the structure of a pineapple.

Ithaca Film Hotel Type: Hotel Location: Ithaca, New York Partner: Nicolas Martin Year: Arch 201 Second Year Professor: Caroline O’Donnell

This project caters to an annual film festival in Ithaca, New York. It is located in the downtown area where there is a central path with a density of restaurants on one end and a gorge trail on the other. My partner and I examined two images from Russian Constructivism to inform a formal method for the hotel. One image led us to a study of rectangular forms that can be used to establish a sense of hierarchy. The second led us to question what could be behind those rectangles. This is visualized with the model on the left: the side facing the streetis an opaque rectangular surface while the North West side introduces a series of implied spaces. Building Shell Analysis

This project centers around three trellis systems that circle around three courtyards. Each courtyard addresses a different programmatic need. The largest courtyard is for the gymnasium space. The second is an outdoor courtyard used to serve a church on the east side of the buiilding that frequently holds community events. The third courtyard is an atrium and serves as a community multi-purpose space. Seneca Street

Type: Location: Year: Professor: School:

Museum New York, New York Arch 401 Fourth Year Jim Williamson, Karl Chu Cornell University

In this experimental studio, our class set out to find to what extent origami techniques can be used to generate formal strategies for architecture. I used the magic ball as my origami method. By changing size, scale, and making cuts at different moments of folding, different architectural implications are made. Formal experiments with origami were then taken to generate a form for a museum in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Physical modeling, and modeling on Rhino and Maya were used as the methods of production.

The same game that generated Brooktondale’s schoolhouses is the same game that generated this wall project. The wall was imagined to be a part of the schoolhouses. It maintains a thickness so that students can walk through, open, close, and build upon the wall.

York Competition - Zebra Model Type: Partner: Year: School: Award:

Marionette Dan Marino Arch 102 First Year Cornell University 1st Place Winner

We had to describe a motion that the animal has through architectural means. My team focused on the lip and neck of the zebra as it grazed and eats. The way that it moves especially in the jaw has an industrial quality as though it were a machine. This compares nicely with the lip which moves more freely and has a soft appearance. In terms of making the zebra move my partner and I operated the different characteristics of the zebra movement: I lifted the neck in a slow, grazing motion and moved the soft lips while my partner operated the jaw, an element that had a sounds quality of metal scraping against the other.

National Assembly for Wales Type: Partner: Year: School:

Structural Model Taek Ho Han Arch 301 Third Year Cornell University

This model is the product of a semester long study of the structural system behind the National Assembly for Wales designed by Renzo Piano. The model is made entirely from wood cut by hand and milled. The structure of the roof consists of six dome shapes with one supporting a floating cone-like shape. Columns at the bottoms of the arches help to withstand vertical thrust.
