“LINGUA FRANCA” Manhattan NY NJIT - Spring 2010 Instructor: Cleveland Harp “ Lingua Franca is a medium of communication between people of different languages”. This language school is mean to bring people of different backgrounds together. In addition to classrooms program requirements include even spaces and auditorium that could be rented out either during the classes or outside of class hours.
LINGUA FRANCA | View of the main entry at 65th and Lexington
The site is located in a neighborhood comprised of townhouses and low to mid-rise buildings. Considering the size and proportions of the site, the building could potentially appear very bulky and out of scale with the neighborhood. The main circulation is articulated in such a way where the two staircases are located at the corners and allow for separation of public and private spaces while also allowing sectional connection between the different programmatic zones.

MUSEUM OF REVOLUTION Paris France NJIT - Fall 2010 Instructor: Cleveland Harp The proposed museum is an expression of social upheaval inspired by the French Revolution of 1787 in that it formally represents the breaking away and separating tradition from new.
MUSEUM OF REVOLUTION | Location map
Separated in two main elements: the galleries and the supporting program. The building holding the supporting program is responsive to the context, it allows for the public to pass through the park that faces the river and does not exceed the scale of the neighborhood. The gallery is the opposite, it does not try to fit in, it breaks away from the tradition - using the steel frame structure and layered facade. The gallery space is lifted off and above the rest of the building, however it is supported by the lower building functionally and structurally, just like the revolutions build on existing ideas.

The main idea for this mixed use residential building was to let it act as a funnel to and from the station. The facade treatment responds to the drastically different scales around the lot. The facade facing the station contains all of the circulation corridors and elevators. The cladding is woven steel mesh panels, which emphasize the horizontal line in dialogue with the movement on the highway and the railroad directly across. The opposite side faces the existing historic residential district and is broken down into four pieces with outdoor stairways serving as dividers.

The concept that drove the planning of this area was the importance of the Broad Street station as a landmark in the neighborhood as well as the connector for the city of Newark to a larger context.

BERGEN STREET RESIDENCE Brooklyn NY david cunningham architecture & planning
BERGEN RESIDENCE | Exterior view | Addition steps axonometric views | Section
This is a complete gut and renovation of an existing 1744 SF townhouse. The original footprint proved to be too small to accommodate the clientâ€™s needs, leading to a decision to put a small addition to the house. The extension allowed us to add a roof deck accessible from a guest room and a balcony for a master bedroom.

DEAN STREET RESIDENCE Brooklyn NY david cunningham architecture & planning
DEAN STREET RESIDENCE | Configuration options | Sample plans for duplex
The owner of this 4-story townhouse was not sure how to divide it into two residences, contemplated excavating the cellar and adding a penthouse. Our zoning and massing studies were compiled into a booklet to show as many as 19 options of unit layouts. Summary of themassing options and one of the duplex options presented to the client is shown here.

MYRTLE AVE STOREFRONT | Facade & partial plan and section | Proposed storefront axonometric
The existing storefront of this townhouse has a small area of glass making the interior very dark and uninviting. The proposed design raises the opening by an additional 3â€™-0â€? without requiring any new structural work. This project is currently in progress.
