ecO house complied in /09 sustainable housing project variable site

The ecO house strives to equate sustainability with eloquent simplicity. The house uses a courtyard to introduce light, ventilation and passive temperature control. It uses brick, wood and strawbale as a primary means of construction, in an attempt to introduce sustainable building practice to established construction methods. EXTERIOR VIEW

The design premise for the project was to create a central public space that could be accessible and used during both day and night. The public Space is surrounded by an art gallery, and theater space. This space is followed above with offices and residential space. Tying the multiple public spaces is a grandiose staircase that flows throughout the lower portion of the project.

a chair for Dieter complied in /10 chair In Partnership with: Sarah Gunawan

Inspired by famous industrial designer Dieter Rams the chair is an attempt to follow Rams’ famous design approach “Weniger, aber besser”, “Less but better”. The production of the chair was treated as the first prototype in the design process. Through construction and observation of the completed chair we have acknowledged opportunites for improvement. In developing future iterations we hope to increase stability, maximize effciency of materials and eliminate extraneous components. Each prototype will further the objective of a subltly unobtrusive, minimally designed, and truly honest chair.

ostiense biblioteca complied in /12 library Via Ostiense, Roma, IT In Partnership with: Scott Turner

The Ostiense area of Rome was historically known as an industrialized zone. With the advent of the RomaTre Campus’ located on this under-realized strip of urban armature - the desire to revitalize this zone of the city became apparent. There were four areas that had were promoted for development; the Pryamide Piazza at the head of Ostiense, an Urban park zone where once gas giants ITALGAS reigned, a new zone for housing developments located south of the urban park, and finally a library situated across the RomaTre head offices. We chose to address the library site, a unique site wherein its proximity to both the river Tiber and Ostiense Streetfront lent itself to multiple design solutions. Our inital design solutions lead us towards a cloister typology and a simple bar building. By combining the two together into a hybrid - thus opening the cloister, we achieved the benefits of both previous typologies; connection to the river landscapes, maintaning a strong street presence and allowing for both an open but clearly defind courtyard in Rome. Programmatically the most functional spaces of the library are kept towards the street front while the more contemplative and social spaces are pushed towards the river-side. The main stack of the library is a spiral bookstack that runs the height of the building, with major floors being accessible off the main stack.

liquid highways complied in /11 infrastructure proposal The Great White North In Partnership with: Miles Gertler

Largely undeveloped, Canada’s Arctic is one of the last pristine environments on the surface of the Earth. The archipelagic region that surrounds the lucrative North West Passage (NWP) is home to variety of native species that migrate through it in age-old patterns. Year-round freezing of the NWP has, until recently, protected the delicate ecosystem from industrial forces. How will it survive given the predicted diversion of shipping traffic from the Panama canal once it is navigable in an ice-free season? Canada’s government has long made the claim that Arctic waters, including the NWP, is sovereign territory. The governments claim that these waters be treated more as land, given their use when frozen by the Inuit, faces a challenge in the form of global warming. In the summer of 2007 the NWP opened completely. Given the predicted expansion of navigavle territory, how does Canada, a country with a small navy and massive maritime borders, exert its constabulary presence? The region will likely remain frozen in the winter for at least the next hundred years, but if the Canadian government is able to leverage the NWP’s lucrative nature as a trade route agaisnt the difficulty of its year-round navigability, it has the opportunity to assert its sovereignty, protect the environment, and benefit economically. Our proposal seeks to do just that. We envision a ‘Liquid Highway” through the NWP that facilitates year-round shipping. Carved by ice-breakers the route allows the government to control shipping traffic in the NORDREG region. Levying tolls on trade ships allows the route to become financially sustainable and would also allow the governement to deploy a series of enviornmentally-sensitive interventions to preserve the region.
