Brooklyn Navy Yard Kunsthalle Brooklyn, NY Semester 3 Trattie Davies YSOA Fall 2011 The BNY Kunsthalle is a 64,000 square foot contemporary art center, consisting of galleries, education and media space and studios for an artists in residency program. The center takes as its dynamic premise the vast open piers of the unused Navy Yard. The roof of the building gradually slopes from the 誰at plane of the yard up toward the Manhattan skyline; the interior slopes even more gradually down toward the water.

HUSH BOX Semester 2 Alan Organschi YSOA January 2011 The Hush Box employs two methods of sound isolation to prevent a cell phone’s complex ring-tone from escaping. It nests layered boxes to stiïe high frequencies and uses horizontal springs to disengage the boxes and absorb low frequencies. Additionally, as the boxes fold into each other the edges overlap and the placement of the openings alternates sides, to further prevent sound from escaping.

Tobacco Warehouse Brooklyn, NY Semester 1 Sunil Bald YSOA December 2010 The TW houses a 400 seat theater and separate experimental performance spaces in a historic building shell under the Brooklyn Bridge. Inspired by the existing triangular room within the shell, this project links the triangle’s natural architectural perspective to the focus with which an audience views a performance.

4000 CU FT Semester 1 Sunil Bald YSOA September 2010 This project began with two textures, the stratiĂŽcation of deposits which make up stalactites and stalagmites and woven string. The weave builds up in layers which deĂŽne an interior and an exterior landscape. Interior is created by building up the walls of a cave like space and exterior is created by spreading across a horizontal surface to articulate a ground plane.

EVE Professional Project Sarah Lasley Film New Haven, CT 2009 I designed these 1950s style costumes for dream sequences in an as yet unnamed îlm by Sarah Lasley. I sewed the second and third dresses myself; I found and styled the îrst and fourth. The îlm concerns a dissatisîed modern housewife who has fantasies about selling household objects. As she looses her mind, her dreams begin to unravel and her ideal silhouette deïates.
