Programmatic Spaces


Noguchi Sculpture Garden (Inserting a garden space for a selected Isamu Noguchi sculpture on the site of Moma PS1.) The project starts to exhibit how art can inform how the architecture behaves. The art or the noguchi piece influenced the strategy of the architecture is positioned. The details create a passage that partially separates the space from the wall and the rest of the sidewalk, in addition to engaging ground and sky much like the trees on site. There is a tremendous amount of construction occurring around the site so by inserting a waterfall from the tops of the canopies, the water blurs the noise of cars and jackhammers and make the details lively. Along the arbor of details, the noguchi piece rests on a new landscape inside of the existing garden which is across the main entry of the museum. It is tied to the details as another fragment to the whole.

Columbia University Boathouse (Redesigning a Boathouse on Baker Athletic Complex, NY.) Borders, Transparency, Access The project is based on the idea of transparency of community features at the Columbia boathouse. I want to diffuse the border between Columbia and the community in a physical and metaphorical sense. The organisation of the spaces is based upon the community’s access to the site.

Pratt Institute Dormitory (Dormitory Building for Pratt Students - Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, NY.) Working with zoning regulations and building codes, this project is about providing interactive spaces for the students of Pratt within a dormitory. The facade plays on boundaries and as volumes shift inwards and outwards, balconies and outdoor spaces are created. The L-Shaped plan consists of bedroom units along the street edges and rear courtyard, providing light and air to each space. Corridors become spaces for students to pin-up their work and share ideas. Other spaces that protrude out of the facade allow for students to study in more quiet spaces. A large cut into the building is a 5.5 story vertical garden for the community.

Wavehill Academy (A series of classrooms inserted into the slope of a hill at Wavehill, NY.) The site intervention is meant to hide the building, making the roof a continuing form of the landscape, and on the south side near the foot of the hill, the building is revealed. This project consists of two access points to the site but only one allows access to the interior of the building. One access point begins at the top of the hill and as a visitor makes the journey down the hill they encouner a series of skylights in the grass and the slope starts to near to 0. The other comes from an adjacent street and approaches a moment where one can see visitors picning on what is the roof of the building (accessed from point 1).

Botanical Horticultural Library (Cultural Library on the corner of Chrystie Street and Grand Street, Downtown Manhattan, NY.) By analyzing flowers, their structure, pattern, color and leaves, new tessellation geometries are used through the building ranging from the design of the columns to the design of bookshelves. Patterns layed lightly on the ground dicatate the organization of study carrells, bookshelves, computer stations and group work spaces. Structure is reliant on 6 inner columns and thus the fritted glass facade is suspended by cables. On the roof, another application of the geometry is used as permeable pavement, introducing a green roof for reading.

Representations (A series of drawings focusing on gothic ornamentation and ornamented interior space.) Using Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, and Vray, these drawings explore new ways of creating detailed space with light manipulation for a range of rendered colors. Beginning with a recreation and reinterpretation of a drawing into 3D form and then moving onto realistic material renderings. The next set of drawings were derived from the gothic forms in order to create an interior space which was abstracted as linework. The form was then manipulated by grasshopper to integrate decoration of the space and then represented in lines. The last drawings create ornamentation with the lines as 3D objects. Designs Include: 1. Recreated drawings and interpretation of Pugin’s gotchic ornaments. 2. Interior space drawings showing surface through linework only. 3. Interior space using surface and line to create ornamented surface
