Middle school is a pivotal point in a student’s life. A period of transition. Just the same, the site sits at the apex of change. Caught between two sides of Hazelwood, PA, the school is both the junction through which things meet, and the junction through which things change. How they change, and in what ways, is what this school strives to define. The programatic organization of the school is designed with use by the community in mind. A split level entrance, utilizing the natural slope along Hazelwood Ave., address two different traffic flows, one for student entry, one for community entry. Both entrance lead to the central core, connecting the building between floors. Open space was heavily emphasized throughout the building as a means of both physical and visual connection. The regular column grid provides the key to the transition and connection between areas with divergent territorial claims and as a place in its own right, it constitutes, essentially, the spatial condition for the meeting and dialogue between areas of different orders. The openness also lends itself to passive surveillance of the spaces, able to hear what is going on in different parts of the school. The clear corridor from the ground floor up provides a sunlit space for symbolic and actual introspection as students pass from one floor to the next.

This project stands at the confluence of housing as a social practice and housing as an environmental practice. Although, each has a unique agenda and unique tools (to manifest either a diversity of social conditions or to mitigate the effects of living), it becomes this project’s prerogative to both forefront an ecological agenda, and foster a community. This project stands in opposition to the notion that these issues and their approaches are separate. The algae is leveraged as both a community building tool and an energy supplier. Positioned at every scale, the algae begins as a spacial divider, a panelling system that opens and closes between units. As the system grows, the algae production organizes the units into collectives, each collective responsible for something different in the processing of the algae. One, more residential, collective simply supports growth of the algae; the next collective houses the processing systems as well as the people who maintain those systems; the last collective houses algal exports and community resources. At the largest scale, the algae fosters the connection of this new community to that of The Strip and beyond. Operating as both a case study and open house for the use of algae that people can visit, but also allowing experimental use in cooking and diesel fuel production to create exports that connect the community to the city.

INTER·PUNCT is a journal and platform for ideas, criticism, theory, and sometimes about architecture. Founded in 2011 as a student-run architectural journal, the organization has put out two publications, countles newsletters, and held multiple discussions and events. The long-awaited follow-up to the inaugural issue, para·meter, vol 2. inter·view intends to reflect a contemporary moment within the discipline of architecture. A moment in which multiple conversations proceed simultaneously, in parallel, and even the best critics aren’t quite sure where it’s all headed. A contemporary dialogue between students and leading practitioners, researchers and theorists, the compilation of interviews presents an archive of the diverse and changing conversations within architectural practice. Through translation, publication, and dissemination, these conversations represent the search for tomorrow’s pressing agendas.

Baltimore’s Middle East experiences a 47% high school dropout rate, a juvenile arrest rate and violent crime rate twice that of the city’s, a homicide rate three times that of Baltimore City. Juveniles nationally have a recidivism rate of 80% in 3 years. The Middle East neighborhood has, for decades, been, not only ignored, but under the political and economic control of nearby Johns Hopkins. The tumultuous relationship, one that often describes Hopkins as the plantation owner and the Middle East as the plantation. Recent attempts by Hopkins to correct their past have been misguided, ill-received, and too-little too-late. Taking cues from the six pillars of Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, this project strives to soften the divide between police and the citizens they serve, specifically, incarcerated youth. The fixation of the building around this open, always accessible, basketball court is a given, a move to create public space; the symbolism of the basketball court as an equalizer also strives to bring disparate populations together.

As cities continue to grow and densify, the time to postulate on tabular rasa city planning becomes increasingly smaller, and less opportune. The city of the future has the propensity to exist in one of three ways: the autocracy — top down city development; the corporatocracy — over-commercialized, privatization of urban development, lack of social-equity; anarchy — the least likely of the three, decentralized and disorganized, the antithesis of planning. Avoiding this propensity to polarize is to relish in the union of these three agencies - government, corporation, and the people. This union is the future of the city. Utilizing the government’s organization and structural umbrella, corporate interest in financing public good, and the ability to crowd source need and mass usage patterns from the people results in the people’s city. The overlap of these three entities, albeit fuzzy and somewhat haphazard, is one that attempts to address a sterile, static city, to change the city that has stopped working for the people who use it. In truth, everyone is part of the public and everyone uses the city. The city’s identity mustn’t be about place, but about the people’s interaction with each other and their collective conquering of the landscape.

PAVILION: Obscura is a flexible learning environment aiming to serve and reflect the community it resides in. Using light and image as its medium, the space augments and juxtaposes views of the surrounding landscape, bringing attention to the changing adjacencies of the neighborhood and its resulting frictions. The form of the pavilion, both in plan and section, is directly derived from the path of the light as it enters the obscura. The two wings emphasize and prioritize the juxtaposing views of the new development and the closed library and school. The two views cross paths at the center, leveraging this juncture as a place for discussion and teaching. One wing of the space is utilized as the door as well. Both sides swinging open to allow for continuous movement through the space. The pavilion was designed to exist in many different states, proving to be just as flexible as the activities of those using it. Allowing the user to dictate the program, but also suggesting ways in which the space can be utilized best. The opening and closing of the wings, and moving of the floating scrims, open and close the internal space, at times crafting nooks, and other times completely removing the line between in and out.

“In contemporary architecture power is hidden and unnoticeable, and authority is represented not through its visibility but rather through its invisibility.” - Michael Foucault, 1977 This project examines our relationship with privacy, allowing users to position themselves as both the subject and the observer, prompting them to question the way they protect their own privacy and invade others. The wall functionally divides a room, holds books and is transportable by one person , but conceptually it aims to provoke and disrupt. Search engines use Twitter’s search and geo API to map tweets. A search was done for the word ‘privacy’ on and around the date of Edward Snowden’s whistle blowing, centered around the NSA headquarters. An image was taken of the mapped data and post processed for increased contrast. A Grasshopper script utilized this image to create a surface. The peak points of that surface represent a higher density of data points. When the density dips, the wall get’s thinner, and at it’s lowest points, the ‘peepholes’ appear.
