L A E T I T I A D E Gldegoul@syr.edu OUL america’s cup pavilion|SAN FRANCISCO, CA Off the famous Embarcadero of San Francisco lies the site of the 2011 America’s Cup Pavilion. In this intervention, the existing pier has been removed to give the impression that the building floats on water. The project demands for large, flexible spaces, indoor and outdoor, as well as numerous ‘platforms for viewing’ out to the race and the boats on exhibition.
The inspiration for the project is taken from the abstraction of wind patterns of the San Francisco Bay area. A model study of these forms (photos on the left) sparked an interest in planes and volumes, and the interactions between the two. The resulting building is a continuous volume of spaces in which a folded plane is inserted. The planar element, depending on its location in relation to the envelope of the building, is sometimes boardwalk, sometimes balcony, sometimes stage, etc...

negotiating the edge condition|N. WOOLWICH, LONDON Located east of central London, the area of North Woolwhich is home to a large majority of commuters, which has consequently refrained this neighborhoodâ€™s development in communal and public space making. The area also houses a variety of typologies ranging from industrial, educational, residential, etc..., creating tension between these juxtaposed environments. The project asked to come up with a design for a site of our choice that would ultimately negotiate the conflicts within those edge conditions all the while instigating a sense of community and identity to North Woolwhich.

3 THE PARK IN THE SKY
as a solution to the dividing impact of the upcoming Crossrail line, a new London train that would connect it to its boroughs although omitting to stop in North Woolwhich, a park in the sky is proposed to bridge this barrier. the railway becomes a destination instead of a divider and offers an attractive space of leisure.

The site for this project is interestingly located in between the CNY Regional Market and Syracuseâ€™s northside residential neighborhood. The project aims at creating a safe, easthetically pleasing and practical connection between the two typologies. Organization and interaction of the program
The CNY FoodCenter project focuses on two main issues: ACCESS & ADVOCACY The project uses the site for a direct and safe route to the Regional Market as well as giving access to on-site healthy food. The project offers both a pedestrian pathway and a vehicular roadway access to the Regional Market, all the while proposing the creation of a system of retail for healthy, locally grown and affordable prepared meals.
Advocacy presents itself throughout the building in moments of display/visibility of the major processes of the food system: Production, Processing, Distribution, Consumption. Secondly, the project incorporates advocacy in its program through the establishment of an educational center for cooking and nutrition.
The project uses a system of butterfly roofs to collect rainwater that is then reused for the maintenance of the gardens, greehouse plants and orchard
