ICONIC G R E E N H O U S E Design for a 10,000 square meter greenhouse, UNDER CONSTRUCTION w/ Leeser Architecture Involvement includes: DD and CD development

This greenhouse is conceived as three overlapping masses, each circle contains a separate biome with different atmospheric conditions. The overlapping volume is an atrium space feeding to the three biomes (spring, summer, and winter climates). Complex environmental issues arise when building these climates in the Middle Eastern desert. The roof and exterior elevations are comprised of ETFE, a system using pillows of plastic to give maximum atmospheric control and visual transparency. My involvement was with the development of the DD and CD drawing sets. Specifically, I focused on the structure of the building, detailing the undulating roof structure and supporting columns. This showcasing concentrates on my individual contribution to the project.

DOUBLE A G E N C Y The Institutional-Public Threshold and Urban Representation Rice University Master’s Thesis Advisor: Martin Haettasch, Readers: Albert Pope, Sarah Whiting

This thesis formally defines a diagrammatically transparent judicial system as a method of exploiting architecture’s urban agency. Government and judicial institutions are typically architecturalized as either a semantic reading or a monolithic object. This thesis produces an architectural double agency merging the idea of a public object and public space. Double agency creates architectural produce in two distinct capacities: creating a new relationship between the public and the courthouse, and the representation of the formal object in the city. This is addressed using the elements of form, organization, and legibility to reconfigure the relationship. Mies’ courthouse marks a shift in institutional representation from a semantic historical reading to an abstracted slab privileging organization. This thesis proposes a new shift bringing representation back to the table. The relationship between diagram and legibility challenges standard notions of the relationship between public and the courthouse institution, and between architecture and the city.

a new urban representation Chicago’s former federal courthouse seen here (left) in the foreground is being replaced by the Mies federal courthouse building in the background, c. 1965. The image marks a shift in the representation of the institution (figure 3) from a semantic historical reading to the organizational prominence of the mies abstracted slab.

The image

suggests that organization had superseded and replaced representation. This thesis calls for another institutional shift bringing representation back to the discussion.

public

restricted

Over the course of history the courthouse has gone through multiple stages of representation. From the neo-classical courthouse at the center of every American town to the abstracted modernist portrayal of Mies van der Rohe, the representational qualities vary from the completely abstract to (Mies) to the completely transparent (Bordeaux courthouse)(figures 5 - 7). Here I use a typical American courthouse as the example of semantic representation and mies as the model of organization and Bordeaux as postmodernism’s attempt at a combination.

diagrammatic legibility This abstracted diagram specifies courthouse adjacencies and the three circulation types (public, restricted, and secure). Formal variations within this project exploit this organizational diagram while maintaining necessary adjacencies.

Skin conditions change where the form meets the cube. The typically singular pattern is inverted at the edge creating moments of transparency, such as in the courtrooms. This connects court users to the city as well as the city to the judicial process. Section rendering below shows how public space is created by manipulating connections between courtroom and jury rooms.

TOWER D 72-Story Tower in NYC Hudson Yards Development w/ Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group Involvement includes: Concept and SD of building base development and interior development, coordination with building systems and adjacent Culture Shed

This 72-story tower, consisting of condominum and rental units, is a part of the Hudson Yards Development, sited between 30th and 31st streets on 11th avenue. The building’s form is defined by a corset at the middle of the tower. The curvature created by the tension of the straps creates a soft flexible appearance of a building formed by glass and steel building. On the ground level, the lobby spans between to blocks, creating a contunious lobby experience between 30th and 31st streets. The materials and organization of the lobby space accentuates the language of the building and continues the play of “soft” and “hard” through the interior.

ONE LOBBY CONCEPT The complex section of the lobby shows two different entrances, on 31st and 30th streets, at different levels. The plan is organized through a ramp that bifurcates the movement through the space while maintaining an architecturally connected space.

Materiality and form of the core wall represent the transition in the space from the public exterior to a more intimate and private interior, and back again. This is created through a weaving of stone and leather materials where the leather bulges out from behind the stone.

A SCHOO L I N F I V E B L A D D E R S Exploring Learning Space Through Morphological and Typological Variance Critics: Gordon Wittenberg and Dawn Finley (in collaboration w/ David Dahlbom and Rachel Dewane)

A simple topological concept guided the development of this building, both morphologically and programmatically: the difference between the inside and the outside of a closed, orientable surface. This closed surface is referred to as a bladder, its inside condition 2 space, and its outside condition 1 space. Deformations of this bladder were permitted so long as its status as a closed, orientable surface was maintained.

mmunication

ers

Ultimately the deformations applied could be easily communicated with the use of three basic categories: columns (giving the bladder a waist), doughnut holes (holes that do not pierce the surface), and bulges. Using this simple topological concept and these basic deformations, we were able to satisfy a large number of demands with a continuous system. These concepts further demanded a careful reconsideration of learning environments in general, and particularly learning environments in a school devoted to media. Spatially, condition 1 and condition 2 spaces tend toward the creation of significantly different sorts of environments. The arrangements of the various deformation types are used to create a diverse range of affects thus producing interesting and useful spaces for engagement.

condition 1

condition 1 condition 2

condition 1 and condition 2 space: The building is one continuous, closed, orientable surface, and as such possesses a topological “inside” and “outside.” This “inside and outside” does not necessarily correspond to the inside and outside of building as would be casually understood by that expression. In order to avoid confusion, we call the inside space —the space that is, strictly speaking, inside the bladder— condition 2 space, and the space outside and on the bladder condition 1 space. The diagram above labels these two conditions and shows an inverted view to emphasize the fact that condition 2 space is not merely poche space.

SHELLS

In maintaining the singularity of the surface, columns curve to provide ultimate load-bearing strength. The resultant forms create programmed condition 2 spaces. Program: media classrooms, bathroom and service areas, offices.

These large surface deformations create large condition 2 spaces. Loads are dispersed through the structurally powerful shell. Program: Auditorium, lecture rooms, computer labs.

DONUTS

TRUS S

Acting as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;inverted columnâ&#x20AC;?, donuts provide structure while allowing for light to enter deep through the building. Direction of light wells are designed to optimize the amount of natural light in the building. Program: light wells, circulation, lobby areas.

Formed from a grouping of narrow columns, the truss produces an expansive area for a new learning environment experience. Program: classrooms.

THE S TA C K - D O C K S T FA C ADE DESIGN Facade proposal adjacent to the Brooklyn Bridge in DUMBO, Brooklyn w/ Leeser Architecture Involvement: design, modelling, rendering, detail and elevation drawing, consultant coordination

This competition proposal for a building facade challenges the rigid form that was determined by the local building restrictions. Conceived as a series of stacked boxes, the facade breaks the singularity of the form while reflecting the context of the Brooklyn Bridge back to visitors. I was involved throughout this project from initial concept design to the detailing of the facade system. I worked through the design with various glass, mechanical, and facade consultants.

CO N T E M P O R A R Y A R T S M U SEUM Fluctuating Space in Houston Critic: Doug Oliver

This Contemporary Arts Museum proposal explores the possibilities of a highly customizable space and the relationship of the building to its context. Located within Houstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s museum district, the project aims to pull the visitor out of the street context through a series of tunnels. Juxtapositions of program and form create interesting moments as the viewers move through the spaces. Fluctuations in the cast-glass skin allow for light and views that correspond to program within the building while penetrating in at the tunnels connecting the skin as a fluid surface.

custom art space Art space must be realized as a highly customizable space to give freedom to artists and designers to program the space as they see fit. Rather than creating a completely transparent box of neutrality, this proposal creates an undulating facade that reflects its exterior environment and the movement of people through the space, providing a background for the artwork that is not entirely indifferent to its context.

D - 33 Installation at P.P.O.W. Gallery - New York, NY. USA, 2012 w/ Sarah Oppenheimer/Folding Enterprises Involvement includes: Fabrication drawing set This installation by Sarah Oppenheimer at P.P.O.W. Gallery in Chelsea (2012) investigates the connections between different spaces, challenging the visitor both physically and visually. Punctures made through the existing gallery walls create circulation and line-of-sight between the rooms producing new connections between spaces and people. Lighting strategies create a visual mosiac through the interventions. My role included producing the fabrication drawing set for the steel structure that is inserted into the voids created in the walls. The project relies on the complex angles and custom metal joints that support the voids.

HYP E R D I K E Repurposing Galveston Through Economic and Ecological Infrastructure Critics: Christopher Hight and Michael Robinson (in collaboration w/ Judd Swanson)

Hyperdike addresses Galvestonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic crisis by guaranteeing the insurability and appreciation of real estate in the area and capitalizing on new modes of shipping traffic. The proposal includes the construction of a dike around the east end of the island connecting both ends of the seawall. Integrated within brownfield sites along the dike are a postPanamax containerized shipping port, various attractions and parks, wetland growth areas, beaches, and a raised urban infrastructure that revitalizes the bay-side waterfront. The dike will be primarily built using material displaced from the dredging of the new post-Panamax deep channel. The container port draws from the massive flow of goods through the Houston/East Texas area effectively redirecting the flow of containerized shipping from the Houston Ship Channel to the new Galveston port. Voids created between the shipping dock and the shore create programmatic opportunities for differentiated programs combining brownfield redevelopment, ballast water remediation, and dredge fill. These programs include a wetlands, park space, concert venue, floating casino, amusement park, and a public aquarium.

why not galveston? port uses and capacities

In effect, logistics experts operate on the principle that capital not in motion ceases to be capital. They look at ships as floating warehouses. Ideally, there should be no point, from production to final sale, when goods sit around waiting for further processing. The flow from sale to ordering to production to shipping to the next sale should occur in one smooth motion. This is the idea behind the logistics revolution.

tonnage distribution network

tapping in in this drawing the information from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tonnage distribution over transportation modalitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; diagram is mapped onto the upper texas coast. this should be viewed as a section cut from a larger, continuous circuit of global exchange. note that of the enormous amount of goods and materials that circulate through the area (460 million tons in 2006), only the tiniest portion circulates through galveston. this represents a great loss in terms of potential job creation and revenue from port leasing, and dockage and wharfage fees. it is our suggestion that if galveston tools itself up for handling a greater portion of this flow, and specifically if it does so with an eye to the anticipated changes in the type of goods that will be circulating in the near future, the city will secure for itself a financially viable future.

WE S T F I E L D H O R T O N P L A Z A Massive downtown San Diego shopping center and urban redevelopment design w/ Rockwell Group Involvement: Concept design, Schematic design This 6-block “superblock” in downtown San Diego acts as a central hub for the surrounding neighborhoods. The project aims to revitalize the site by opening the central corridor (seen below as a diagonal tear through the urban fabric). This amorphous moment in an otherwise traditionally gridded metropolis is a challenges pedestrians to engage the site. Additionally, the project calls for a facelift of its current 1980s postmodern pastiche to be replaced by a formally cohesive and contemporary proposal.

A TREE GROWS IN HOUSTON Hybrid Typologies and Housing Infrastructure in Houstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fifth Ward Critic: Albert Pope

Trees in this housing project refer not to lush carbon-dioxide absorbing plants, but rather to a diagrammatic representation of the relationship between housing and infrastructure. Hierarchical analysis of housing in Houstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fifth Ward results in an abstracted categorization of existing typologies as trees - lowlying connections with little degree of separation from the more complex infrastructure system. The monotonous and limited hierarchical condition suggests a strategy of typological diversity as a method of urban integration. This project integrates the buildings into the larger urban infrastructure, reclaims the green void caused by the defunct railway, connects open transportation nodes through formal intervention providing housing and shared amenities, and fosters urban interaction at a human level through the deployment of various housing typologies and complex circulation overlays. The standardized grid layout is disintegrated in the chosen site. This results in three types of connections defined here as DEAD END, LOOP, and THROUGH streets. These connection types are utilized as nodes from which more complicated typologies and hierarchical arrangements grow. Dead End connections comprise the most numerous node type within the site. The openness of this type allows for direct circulatory connection into a more complex system. Loop connections tap into the urban hierarchical circuit at points of continuous movement. This typology lends toward organizations with fewer degrees of separation such as point-loaded buildings. The through street typology branches from both sides of the street creating a building spanning the roadway. Increased density is common within this typology. This project integrates the buildings into the larger urban infrastructure, reclaims the green void caused by the defunct railway, connects open transportation nodes through formal intervention providing housing and shared amenities, and fosters urban interaction at a human level through the deployment of various housing typologies and complex circulation overlays.

In this abstracted diagram units are represented by the white dots at the end of a connection series. Degrees of separation making up this series vary from hallways to greenspace to skip-stop corridors. The thick white line running throughout indicates the projects datum that connects through form and at certain moments through space. This privileging of space produces the â&#x20AC;&#x153;soft-megastructureâ&#x20AC;?.

SOW WA H C E N T R A L Interactive space and pavilion w/ LAB @ Rockwell Group Involvement: Design, concept, and presentation Sowwah Central is a public space with interactive features, a central funicular, and patterned roof structure, all situated in shopping center in Abu Dhabi, UAE. This proposal called for intense design charette and production, moving from the conceptual sketches below to the renderings on the following pages, in only 3 days time. The project calls on the triangular and overlapping patterns of middle eastern culture and integrates interactive platforms that respond to touch the sequence of the funicular and to peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interaction. At the top of the funicular, above the roof structure, is a viewing platform with views to across the metropolis. Interactive glass walls allow users to access information about the city.

The following two projects were completed during a week-long design intensive at the Smartgeometry conference in London. The conference aims to bridge the gap between smart parametric form and fabrication. My particular cluster titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Adaptive Structural Skinsâ&#x20AC;? investigates the potentials of folding algorithms to produce structural building envelopes. The project workflow involves conceptual testing (paper folding), parametric modelling, engineering analysis, re-design, and fabrication.

PIE R 1 - B R O O K LY N B R I D G E PARK COMPETITION Condominium and Hotel Development on the Brooklyn Waterfront w/ Leeser Architecture Involvement: conceptual design, 3D modelling (Rhino), drawings, and renderings.

The main drive of this proposal was to integrate the building into the park by extending the green surface of the landscape up through the structure. Organizationally, the building acts as two single-loaded corridor slabs with a park/atrium space between. The blocks of form are torqued to reveal moments of public program (restaurants, pavilions). Additional public amenities are suspended within the atrium space to create a unique living environment that supports the public nature of the site. My involvement on this two-week competition proposal includes working with the team on the conceptual design, 3D modelling, drawings and diagrams, and renderings.

the new natural in collaboration w/ Tracy Bremer originally published in PLAT Journal 1.0 and Cite Magazine Issue 85 Following the industrial revolution, our environment has been so fundamentally altered that it has resulted in an ambiguity between the natural and artificial. Once considered invasive, the industrial object has become so entrenched in the landscape that it appears as a native element. Within contemporary cities it is now the natural that reveals itself as an impostor resulting with the manufactured environment as the new natural.
