WATKINS GLEN PAVILION Situated on top of the gorge in Watkins Glen State Park (New York), the pavilion aims to provide an escape to the visitors. The challenge is a site from which all the sounds of the roaring water can be heard, but not seen. Located just off a frequently traveled pedestrian bridge, the pavilion’s spaces are simply two private gathering spaces and a public space, as well as restrooms. The directionality of the pavilion is meant to orient to visitors to the gorge, with the main public space throughout the center, and the flanking private areas emphasizing the importance of the central space. The build-up of the public space culminates in one moment that actually provides a glimpse to the gorge below, as well as can be seen from below as a point of interest.

INSTITUTE OF THE ARTS A local project in the city of Syracuse dealing with urban infill, located on the intersection of Clinton and Fayette Streets. The project studies the rhythms and elements of the surrounding city in order to come up with a more modern building that both fits into the context and adds something new to the city. The program of the building is distributed in such a way that the private, strictly student or teacher portion of the building is located in the main mass, while the publicly accessible program, light program, follows the promenade and snakes its way through the mass.

STORM KING PAVILION Storm King Art Center is an openair museum that is a sculpture landscape. The proposal is a very small-scale viewing pavilion located at the top of one of the hills on the premise. The pavilion, which can be occupied by around ten people, is near the informational lodge and would be a good place to stop and view the sculptures in the vicinity and orient oneself in the landscape. The structure is meant to be temporary and is made of wood, and plays with rhythm, guiding the visitor through to the big moments. It is designed with three primary viewpoints to allow the visitor the views to the important sculptures.

ARTISTIC PLUG-IN Located in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami, Florida, the project is a warehouse renovation that aims to look at the issue of gentrification. In the neighborhood, as more artists are starting to move in, the existing population is getting eliminated. In order to address the problem, a building combining a market, art facilities, auction space, and artist residences is proposed. The existing structure of the warehouse houses the public program of the market and auction, while the artistic spaces are “Plugged-in” to the existing fabric, leaving room for both the new and the old population. The zones where the two interact become places where the art world comes down to meet the public and gives back to the community instead of destroy it.

FILM INSTITUTE

Located in Venice, Italy, right on the Grand Canal, the building serves to display, present and store films about Venice. In order to fit into the Venetian life, one of the main ways to access the building is from the Canal. With a traditional narrow site, the building is very open in order to get light in. The cloth model study served as a conceptual basis for the building, while the winding streets of Venice inspired the promenade within the building, continuing through the three main levels of the building, each housing one of the main functions.

ARCHIVE

Study Abroad: Florence

iMage Archive is a architectural film archive curated by Marco Brizzi and Paola Giaconia in Florence, Italy. The film archive building is located in Piazza Annigoni, east from the city center, but bordering a bustling market. Based on the observations around Florence, it was found that the piazza needs a monument. This creates the concept of building as monument, where the monument becomes circulation, which also fits into the dense fabric. The film archive houses three auditoria, the major informal auditorium being inside the monument, and works to reveal and take away views of the city as one progresses through, terminating with a view Il Duomo at the topmost point.

Collaborative comprehensive studio project for an office building for city Council Members of Pittsburgh, PA. The site is right across from the City-County building, and is a scarcely used parking lot in the midst of highrise buildings. The government is a protected institution serving the public, and as such, needs to respond and invite in the public. This relationship provides opportunities of mixing and interaction between the two extremes, while keeping the necessary boundaries. In order to accomplish this, an interstitial, mediating space is provided to facilitate/alleviate the interaction and coexistence of the separate realms. The public spaces snake up through the office building in an attempt to invite the public in and up.
