GRÜNE AUFHÄNGER (NEW COMMERZBANK TOWER) with MAE-LING LOKKO, CARESSA SIU, NICHOLAS WINTER JEFFERSON ELLINGER, RPI + CASE at SOM, FALL 2011

By reconceptualizing the domain of the core of the skyscraper, which is traditionally used as a structural component as well as provide vertical circulation, our building creates new social and bioclimactic characteristics that help link the program of the tower to Frankfurt’s natural and urban ecologies and works in conjunction with the tower shell to capture and distribute solar and wind resources.

TECTONIC GARDEN

GUSTAVO CREMBIL, RPI + TONGJI UNIVERSITY at TONGJI, SPRING 2012 Through exploration of the interactive and dependent qualities of weaving as applied to fabric structures, the design of these towers were achieved through a network of multifuntional vertical and horizontal elements that grow upon itself to create a unique weave complimentary to the urban fabric of Shanghai.

EXO-LLENCE

JOE MACDONALD, RPI FALL 2012 In this parametrically driven design, intended to be a Center for Excellence on RPI campus, repetitive components form an exoskeleton containing a differentiated body, which then unleashes a set of effects that inform the layout and structure of floors. By decentralizing and pushing circulation and program to the exterior of the project, staggered floor plates divide the space without segregating, allowing users to employ the space freely.

SUBMERGE / EMERGE

JEFFERSON ELLINGER & MARK MISTUR, RPI SPRING 2013 My partner Tom Roland and I used the concept design from Matteo Cainer Architects’ entry for the National Museum of Afghanistan competition. We developed our own interpretation based on the breaking of the cube to result in the creation of different volumes. Visitors enter by traveling through the portal at the low end of the museum, which takes them below ground to a courtyard centered around a tree. From there, they can rise up through four scattered circulatory vessels that allow visitors to have a unique and individual experience. The museum is sited in Kabul and communicates Islamic themes through architecture and exhibits.

CLOUD: NEGATIVE SPACE INVASION

METROPOLIS MAGAZING WORKPLACE OF THE FUTURE COMPETITION Part of my time at Gensler was spent dedicated to working collaboratively with fellow interns (Clifford Ho, Marissa Everling) on a competition entry for Metropolis Magazine’s Workplace of the Future Competition. Our entry addressed utilizing negative space between buildings to grow the floor plate of existing companies and increase connections between buildings.

Look at those Clouds!!


Dead-ends allow for comfortable lounge space

Circulation on one side and workspace on the other Adjustable displays allow for sitting or standing workspaces

Straight units allow for speedy circulation

Ample space for large groups when circulation is not necessary


GREEN SPACE Incorporating vegetation into the facade is good for the environment and workers

CIRCULATION = COLLABORATION Pairing pathway with desk space maximizes chance encounters between workers

AIR SPACE Utilizing typically ignored roof planes as balcony space so users can get some fresh air

LOUNGE SPACE Giving workers a place to relax lets them have a good mental break from their work; it also gives them a chance to talk with coworkers fostering conversation, collaboration and innovation

FOCUS WORK Heads-down space to maximize individual productivity


FLEXIBLE DISPLAY Large, flexible touch screen displays allow the office to go paperless and ideas to be easily shared through a connected network CARBON FIBER STRUCTURE Making the structural pieces of the system out of carbon fiber makes the units lightweight and strong

FLEXIBLE POLYMER WITH SHAPE MEMORY ALLOY FACADE Allowing the skin of the building to move allows it to adapt to the constantly changing environment for the benefit of the user
