Conceptual shared 1,500 sf living, rehearsal and performance space for dancers within the New York City Ballet company. The space features modular wall units that move along tracks to create different living experiences. The static positions of the modular units mimic angles relative to the five foot positions in ballet. The space also reflected a retractable practice and performance space on the mezzanine level.

Conceptual threshold and program design for Senior Center. The hyperbolic concept was achieved through an initial study of rubber band materialities and then translated to architectural/interior geometries with steel cables. The entry was placed in the tension “threshold� observed in the hyperbolic model to create an illusion of suspension. 10,000 sf of additional space were programmed for gallery, dining, administrative and educational functions.

hyperbolic threshold concept exploration and study

Threshold concept for Senior Center. Challenged with identifying a “threshold object” to represent the intangible moment of transition from adulthood to senior citizen, inspiration was drawn from the rubber band. The qualities of elasticity and retention were studied in hyperboloid form diagrammatically and modeled to observe relationships to the concepts of aging. Diagram A: Structure bound to linear plane symbolizes attachment to the past as the model can expand only as the affixed point allows, symbolizing dependency on previous position for stability. Diagram B: Visible only from Diagram A’s “inside” perspective, it widens without ever reaching one specific point symbolizing attachment to present as the static point represents constants despite being bound to a vastitude of expansion (aging). Both sides meet the inevitable (old age for the young, death for the old) as they are bound by a continuum which both separates them and sustains them through interdependence, and are connected inextricably through the “threshold”.
