Architecture:

City + Nature westlake urban gateway compton armory re-use urban nomad connection disintegration transition


“

...my passion for architecture surfaced at an early age. while other seven-year-olds drew pictures of action heroes, i drew the plans for my dream house. architecture is more than using different materials in exciting ways - it must evoke feelings in the observer. architeture is not the creation of a pretty facade, it is seemless integration where the building becomes a physical manifestion of an emotion...

architecture city + Nature/ usc/ spring 2010/ liang

Located at Dodger Stadium, The site has the potential to create a healthy sustainable community that is a part of the city and of nature. With it’s proximity to downtown los angeles, I saw the site as a refuge for people working downtown and are unsatisfied with their connection to the natural environment.

architecture This project seeks to set an example of a large community that contains a wholistic approach to respecting nature. Specific examples would be using photo voltaic arrays to collect the sun’s energy and wind energy turbines to collect wind energy. The wind mills would be locally owned and it would be a source of income for the community and increase economic development. Community gardens would be used as an healthy alternative to television.

architecture compton armory re-use/ usc/ spring 2009/ graham This project focused on creating a facility that can serve as a disaster response center for the community during times of crisis. The day to day program of the center is to train members of the community to run all aspects of a disaster response facility as well as teaching valuable job training and giving the community a place that they can be proud of. An additional programmatic element that we are proposing along with disaster response and job training is a recycling lab. The Recycling Lab is an advanced spin on a recycling center that additionally teaches the community about the importance of basic recycling as well as product design and material testing. The lab will utilize recycled materials for reuse as medical instruments, fitness and educational supplies and building materials.

architecture urban nomad/ usc/ fall 2008/ kapeller this project focused on creating an urban oasis in the heart of downtown los angeles. water was used as an attractor. the public spaces throughout the project contain water features that collect to the main gathering space. The form was also inspired by water, how water naturally carves through solid objects. Program elements include a boutique hotel with multiple restaurants, retail, and pool areas.

architecture physical models

This model illustrates the idea of water carving through a solid mass. Exterior walls are made of stone and glass is used in areas surrounding water features.


this model focused on the energy of water. How the movement of water could create internal spaces.

Vegetation walls were incorporated into the design of the building. This was done in order to create an “oasis� within the city.


architecture connection/ asu/ spring 2006/ muller the concept was centered around connection. the connection between life and death. specifically how life and death interweaves around each other. the program was to create a place of memory that while part of a cemetery, accommodates a range of uses. the space incorporates aspects of both a park and a cemetery.

the solids in the mausoleum represent life and the voids represent death.

architecture disintigration/ asu/ fall 2005/ pathangay creating a sense of disintegration in the built environment was the concept behind the design of this project. at the entrance, the building is solid, as the visitor passes through each space, it transitions to a more translucent environment. the use of glass and exposed beams help create this effect of disintegration.

light was brought into the cafe space through the use of a skylight and floor to ceiling glass windows.

architecture transition/ asu/ spring 2005/ candio the simple and elegant design is a response to human nature. it satisfies the desire to interact with the surrounding landscape. this project was an entry sequence to a nature preserve. as one enters, they transition from the built environment into nature.


the seating area is situated between a water feature and a view of the desert landscape. this multi-sensory environment inspires the visitor to reflect on life in a peaceful setting.

...In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains or the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. Design is the fundamental soul of human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service...

-Steve Jobs

10 items that contribute to footprint: 1-materials 2-transportation of materials 3-sealing the envelope 4-energy efficiency 5-water efficiency 6-site strategy 7-hvac 8-lighting 9-building maintenance 10-green technologies 1-materials:

70% 50%

the way the materials are made, and the materials themselves greatly impact a buildings embodied co2. of emissions are associated with the manufacture of materials. for example, concrete accounts for of a buildings embodied co2. if other types of concrete are used (ground grandulated blast furnace slay) it cuts the co2 to half the amount (1/4th of the building’s total embodied co2).

2-transportation of materials: 15% of a buildings overall embodied co2 is associated 3-sealing the envelope:

with the transport of materials.

by properly insulating and sealing a building, it becomes highly efficient and performs better.

4-energy efficiency:

by using energy efficient methods and products, the building can be less dependent on traditional sources of energy and more sustainable. energy star products maKe a building at least more efficient. the embodied energy in domestic buildings may be equivalent to 10 times annual operational energy use; for complex commercial buildings, the ratio can be as high as 30:1.

15%

5-water efficiency:

by decreasing the amount of water used, it can greatly decrease a building’s footprint.

REX’s design collectively groups the functions of the Library, the Life-Long Learning Center and the Music Center into an enclosed half and a free-plan half, each layered into a linear, educational “Ribbon.” The enclosed functions — classrooms, meeting spaces, offices and auditoriums — are organized within the Ribbon’s interior. The Library’s public space and book stacks form the Ribbon’s free-plan rooftop and can be wholly reconceived as necessary. Many of the LLLibrary’s subject-area and institutional specialists are now brought together in a zone of concentrated interdisciplinary expertise, named the Synter (Center + Synergy). Located in the heart of the building’s atrium, the Synter will serve as a hub for efficient, in-depth information exchange, and as the gateway to the larger offerings of the Library, the Life-Long Learning Center and the Music Center. A structural grid in wood, with 5.5×5.5×3m modules, suspended above this nucleus for accesses, connects the existing paths and creates new ones. Thus, one may cross the bridge structure in three different ways: from above (the roof garden, which is a projection of the plot), from beneath (crossing a garden with water mirror and natural stones) and going via the middle of the house (crossing an external covered area). This grid has modules, some of which are taken up by closed environments; other ones are totally empty, allowing that the trees from the garden below cross the structure.

And by incorporating the existing Music Center’s auditoriums into the new building, REX’s plan makes cost-effective use of recently renovated performance infrastructure.

graphic design sustainable pizza box/ USC/ spring 2010 After reading Cradle to Cradle and learning that a large portion of waste in landfills are food containers, I started thinking about the containers I use and how to make them more sustainable. I noticed that pizza boxes are made of cardboard, but they could not be recycled because of the contamination caused by the grease from the pizza. I started by thinking of ways to make the pizza container recyclable. I thought that a perforated circle on the bottom of the container would be a good idea. The pizza would sit inside the circle and once the user was done with the pizza, they would punch out the circle and thrown that portion away. This way the contaminated portion was disposed of and the rest of the container would be recycled. This solution was not successful because it really did not influence people to recycle. I then thought, what if the pizza container was reusable? I researched bioplastics and decided on a 100% starch-based bioplastic that was heat resistant to 212 degrees. The plastic container would be purchased by the consumer, they would then bring the container to a local pizzeria. The pizzeria would used the customer’s container to place the purchased pizza. The pizzeria would save money by purchasing less cardboard containers and pass on the discount. The pizzeria would also charge customers extra for cardboard containers, thus promoting customers to purchase their own containers. Once the customer is done with their pizza, the container would be washed and re-used. Imagine the number of pizza boxes thrown away from college campuses. If sustainable pizza containers were used, then there would be less trash in landfills.
