THE LOCALE: The site is located on the southern tip of South America, in a region referred to as Patagonia, or “edge of the world”. The landscape is composed of constantly changing mountains, glaciers, lakes, and “Pampas” (vast grazing plains carved out by glacial ice). The extreme location is coupled with an extreme climate of low temperatures and strong western winds over 80mph resulting in a cold tundra where survival is a way of life.

NEIGHBORHOOD STUDY The reception at the Southern end enjoys the framed view of the scenery. The informal courtyard is proportioned to accommodate groups gathering around the fire or climbing on the rocks with the mountains as a backdrop. This outdoor space is the ‘heart’ of the neighborhood with the embedded boardwalk leading the traveler to their rooms. COURTYARD DIAGRAM: Proportions and boulder placement study

THE BOULDER: This sketch studies the most important aesthetic of hiking and climbing: texture. The rocks featured on the site are meant for interaction with the guests.


UNIT STUDY The rooms frame individual uninterrupted views of the mountains, pampa, and Lake Nordenskjold. The minimal design focuses on the requirements and activities of the adventure tourists preparing for and celebrating their return from their wilderness treks and kayak trips. The low boulder table is great for laying out gear and maps as they plan their trips. The wood materials, local hand-crafted blankets, and central fire warm the guest in this cold environment.

FINDING: strategies and goals: typologies for stengthening local identity CENTRAL BUSINESS PLAZA Bennetts Associates Architect’s New Street Square, London. Where social interactions become possible. Restaurants and cafes at ground level with covered outdoor seating and live music.This ensures this office development stays lively after 6pm. The plaza physically opens up the area, increasing permeability. Creates a new centrality, a place for everything: celebrate positive contributions, have events, strengthen local pride and social fabric. It creates a sense of place. The plazas are a place for undetermined activities: flexible, allowing the neighborhood to develop its own melody / identity.

TREES AND WATER FEATURES CREATE INTIMATE SPACES. Pegasus Plaza, Texas. Planted and enjoyable gathering places.

OFFICE TYPOLOGY. Kaap Skil museum, Netherlands by Mecanoo Architects. Here, the building uses shading devices, recycled materials, and the building opens up on the ground floor to a cafe. Our plan requires interesting green typologies to attract new businesses and clients. FLEXIBLE HOUSING OPTIONS for business people staying a couple weeks, several months and also long term rentals HOUSING. Checker Box,Tehran, by Arsh Design Group. Instead of using large towers to achieve density, inserting versatile apartment buildings into the existing context is a different kind of strategy. The facade is neutral yet animated in contrast to the busy “humdrum” of adjacent urban facades each striving to stand out. SINGLE PASSAGE .Masdar Masterplan. Maintains views to historic textile chimneys.


SMALL SHOPS, CAFES, STUDIO WORKSHOPS Differences in materiality, heights, gives the space a visual richness. Flexible training facilities give locals more access to job market / facilitates insertion of new companies. The goal is to attract investment and high tech workers, but at same time maintains identity of a neighborhood with a strong working-class legacy

NEW CRISTOBAL DE MOURA RAMBLA. Connects this area to the rest of Barcelona and the outskirts. Main facade to this street is lined by green space and outdoor seating of bars and restaurants. The ground floor, the level of the city must be engaging.

MARKET Attractive market place and shops make density desireable so that people want to live here.

FACILITIES Like the 2007 Subcentral Electrica 22@ Rahola Vidal. Our recycling facility teaches about sustainability and is also architecturally attractive.

LIBRARY & EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES. Katowice Scientific Information Centre & Academic Library by HS99. In this typology precedent, the gaps become panels of light after dark that animate the street. The covered atrium brings light to all study floors of the building’s large footprint while the bricks keep the harsh sun out.

LIVING CULTURE - SENSE OF PLACE “You say that I use the land, and I reply, yes, it is true; but it is not the first truth. The first truth is that I love the land; I see it is beautiful; I delight in it; I am alive in it.” (N. Scott Momaday, Kiowa writer) ENERGY - ROOTEDNESS - AWARENESS COMMUNITY -RESPECT FOR THE LAND

The University of Illinois wishes to create a space for the native students on campus to interact with one another, and practice and learn about their cultural heritage from native elders and professors. The Native Center helps students from tribes all over the U.S to adjust and feel welcome. It accommodates several classrooms, conference rooms, resource center, storytelling and gathering spaces, and cafe and kitchen for indigenous meals, and faculty offices. The formal N side respects the university lines. The materials and layout are designed to bring the energy of the land to our awareness (fire, native trees, rainwater harvest, bermed earth), so that those who spend time here develop a sense of community, rootedness, and respect for the land.


Water Catchment System When it rains, the water runs down the center of the butterfly roof and cascades down the stone roof that wraps around the gathering space. The water then drops down into the cistern for grey water use in the building. The elevated waterfall is a visual and audible display that encourages the students to look up and be more aware of their surroundings.

The APIF facility is a place for students, teachers, engineers, and business people to learn and work together on different aircrafts. Because the airplane is the main focus of the program, the goal is to maximize the interactions between the hangar and all other spaces in the building. This is achieved by creating either a physical or visual connection to the hangar. By wrapping the rest of the program around it, the hangar then becomes the central focal point of activity and the heart of the facility.

BREAKS: To balance the constant interaction with the hangar, break spaces are introduced into the program: the coffee shop, the lookout deck over the native prairie field, and the exterior corridor balcony for student use between classes. PROCESSION: a boardwalk along the parking provides a dynamic approach to the building. The 5ft grass field that sweeps up to meet the boardwalk draws you to find out what is around the corner. Arriving, you then have a choice to stop in for coffee or proceed to the main entrance BUILDING ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT: -a water catchment system is a great use of such a large roof. The main cistern is burried underground to avoid freezing in the winter, but smaller cisterns used for irrigation of the garden are on display in the coffee shop. -The paved surfaces use permeable gravel pave to allow for ground water filtration. This also mitigates the temperature of the paved area in the summer. -Bioswales cleanse runoff storm water before returning it to the local ecosystem. -A ground source heat pump makes use of NORTHEAST ELEVATION geothermal features to cool and heat the building. -Transparent louvers allow excess heat to escape in the summer as well as allow natural light to filter in. The low opening windows allow natural ventilation to flow in at SECTION A the occupant level. -Double pane glass and increased insulation, allow the building to perform 42% better than the energy code requirements.

GUEST HOUSE FOR BAROQUE MUSICIANS JUNIOR STUDIO view from the parc balbi

[9 weeks] Spring 2011 the site: The Chateau de Versailles sets the scene for a summer International Baroque Music Festival every few years. This project calls for a guest house for the visiting musicians. Situated along the edge of the Piece d'Eau des Suisses, the site sits on the outskirts of the informal gardens of the Palace.

view from the piece d'eau des suisses

concept notes: The inspiration for this project came from the shimmering reflections in the large basin, and the privacy that the Parc Balbi offers. In order to create a peaceful and inspirational space for the guests, my approach deals with the transparency of light and sound. The floorplan is very open to allow light to travel freely throughout the building. The same idea is applied to sound, which filters through the spaces and envelopes the occupants.

DESIGN DUNCAN MILLER ULLMANN - SHANGHAI, CHINA [SUMMER 2013] I was the sole architectural design intern on a team with senior architect, Joao David. After the firm was selected to design the interior as well as the exterior architecture, we also worked directly with project coordinator, Jiajia Yu, interior designer, Fernando Arteaga, and firm director, Eric Ullmann.As an intern, I researched precedents and materials, sketched concept ideas, and helped plan, draft and render layouts and elevations for all the changes in Schematic Design. All of the drawings here, I have developed myself with style input and design critique from Joao David. These were the current designs when I left the project to return to school.


Precedent Studies


TEEWINOT CHAIR THE DESIGN: ‘Teewinot’ is derived from a Shoshone word meaning “many pinnacles”. The chair is inspired by the

contrasts between the serrated outline of the Grand Teton mountain range in Wyoming and its reflection in the lake. The smooth and rough surfaces of the chair imitate the steeply sliced East slopes and the uneven unravelling terrain of the Western side. Low to the ground, the chair is meant for enjoying a fresh perspective of the peaks. The varying recycled wood color palette and simple connections make it an informal, intimate piece.

THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS:

One of the main challenges of the chair was movement. With each iteration, the degree of movement of the chair changed. The ‘give’ of the connections binding the back to the seat became the defining factor. Each new model was made to test the different designs of the connection detail making the chair more comfortable and continung the mountain / lake theme.
