BUILDHAUS

fall 2014

the new orleans building arts institute is a trade school for masons and craftsmen in the freret neighborhood. the c-shaped mass of the building and the large covered courtyard is a micro representation of the larger neighborhood fabric. canted roofs offer opportunities for light, ventilation, and sectional hierarchy. a canopy incorporates voronoi organic cell-inspired panels that reflect the tree canopy of the adjacent valence cemetery, rooting the design in a neighborhood based approach.

A-WKND

winter 2014/winter 2015

a-wknd is a 3-day collaboration between the tulane school of architecture and several design firms. the first of the following projects is lightscape, an interactive spatial experience made from light by connecting to input such as twitter, motion sensors, and music. the installation was in collaboration with future cities lab of san francisco. the second is big air, a hexagonal mylar canopy suspended by weather balloons that responds to the differences in wind and pressure, in collaboration with thom faulders of oakland.


TANZAK ADEMIE spring 2015

a modern dance academy in the heart of new orleans takes advantage of a corner lot by activating a street front with a dynamic facade of operable shading panels, providing a generous entry courtyard, auditorium, and topographic rooftop garden, and accentuates the street intersection with a cantilevered blackbox theater.

OZANAM INN fall 2016

photo credit: hannah bahney

an exercise in collaborative design-build, a new canopy for a men’s homeless shelter in downtown new orleans shelters occupants from rain while keeping their bags dry from runoff on a raised deck which includes new high-backed seating. The new design replaces a dark and rusty canopy and dilapidated benches with a more dignified, bright, and uplifting space as occupants await meals.

NEW ORLEANS CITY HALL & WATER PLAN spring 2016

a new urbanist approach to new orleans’ city hall engages the pedestrian scale while maintaining the integrity of the original design’s monolithic intent. a generous covered porch based on new orleans’ porch culture operates as public market and protest space, while the adjacent park and canals bring the wetland ecology of southeastern louisiana into an urban context, helping to mitigate flooding and increase the occupant’s perception of the surrounding environment.


Tiered Canal edges operate as Floodable filtration systems while creating a blue-green space on dryer days

Traffic kept across canal from more pedestrian-friendly city hall and plaza

Green Walls create a pattern of greenery on the porch and are hydrated through drip irrigation

Alternating Green roofs offer water management and a "fifth facade" to people in City Hall above
