01 TRIPLICITY

TRIPLICITY IS CHICAGO’S NEWEST TOWER CASCADING ALMOST 2000 FT INTO THE SKY. THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THIS TOWER IS FROM THE UNIQUE BURNHAM INSPIRED ATMOSPHERE THAT CHICAGO POSSESSES. THIS SITE, ON THE EDGES OF THE STREETERVILLE NEIGHBORHOOD CONTAINS THREE MAIN ASPECTS OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO: THE LAKE MICHIGAN SHORELINE, THE CHICAGO RIVERFRONT, AND THE SITES LOCATION OF BEING ON THE EDGE OF AN URBAN CONTEXT. ALL THREE OF THESE ASPECTS OF THE CITY ARE WEAVED AROUND THE TOWER IN A DOUBLE SKIN FAÇADE SYSTEM TO EMPHASIZE THE IDENTITY OF THE CITY THIS TOWER WAS DESIGNED FOR. THE PRE-EXISTING HOLE LEFT ON THE SITE, FROM THE CALATRAVA CHICAGO SPIRE, HAS BEEN TRANSFORMED INTO AN ELABORATE TRANSIT HUB COMPLETE WITH CHICAGO’S NEWEST TRANSIT LINE: THE GOLD COAST LINE. THIS TRANSIT ORIENTED DESIGN ALLOWS IMMEDIATE CONNECTION FROM BOTH OF CHICAGO’S AIRPORTS DIRECTLY TO THE TOWER AS WELL AS THE CITY LOOP. FILLED WITH 22ND GENERATION RETAIL, HOTEL, AND RESIDENTIAL THIS TOWER WORKS AS ITS OWN MINIATURE CITY AS WELL AS A STATE OF THE ART TOWER SHOWING THE WORLD THAT THE CITY OF CHICAGO IS IN FACT A WORLDWIDE CITY.

OFF THE EDGE

CHICAGO’S LAKEFRONT EDGE REPRESENTS A MOMENT IN TIME. IT HAS TRANSFORMED FROM THE INDUSTRY OF THE 1800’S TO THE RECREATION IT IS PRESENTLY KNOWN FOR. NOW IT IS TIME FOR ANOTHER TRANSFORMATION AS THE MILLENNIALS STEP INTO THE PROFESSIONAL FIELD. THERE’S A CONNOTATION THAT IS FORMING FROM MILLENNIALS ABOUT A MODERN DOWNSIDE TO URBAN LIVING. THIS BEING THAT MANY WHO LIVE AND WORK IN THE CITY FEEL AS IF THEY HAVE AN UNBALANCED WORK-LIFE STYLE AS WELL AS AN INACTIVE OR SEDENTARY LIFE. AFTER RESEARCHING MILLENNIALS AND THE EFFECTS OF OUR EVER INCREASING SEDENTARY LIFE, OFF THE EDGE HAS BEEN GENERATED TO RESTORE A NEW LIFESTYLE IN CHICAGO. ACTING AS A HETEROGENEOUS MICRO-CITY, OFF THE EDGE WILL ACTIVATE THIS NEW LIVE-WORK BALANCE ON TWO SCALES. IT WILL DRAW VISITORS TO THE LAKEFRONT TO EXPERIENCE THIS NEW LIFESTYLE AS WELL AS ACT AS A NEW BUILDING PROTOTYPE FOR THE LARGER CITY. LIKE ITS FORM OFF THE EDGE CAN PROGRESS AND FLOW INTO THE ULTIMATE LIVE-WORK ATMOSPHERE. IT CAN BECOME A PLACE THAT PROVIDES STUNNING SKYLINE VIEWS AS ITS RESIDENTS WAKE UP, PROVIDE STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY AND PROTOTYPING LABS FOR INDIVIDUALS TO DEVELOP CUTTING-EDGE DESIGNS, AND A TENTH FLOOR BUNGEE JUMPING ISLAND FOR ONE TO CLEAR HIS/HER MIND WHILE ON A LUNCH BREAK. NOT JUST A HOUSE FOR INVENTING THE LATEST AND GREATEST, THIS ARCHITECTURAL TOPOLOGY WILL INCORPORATE THE LATEST BUILDING METHODS USING ROBOTICS TO BUILD THE STRUCTURE AS WELL AS ADD ONTO THE STRUCTURE AS CHICAGO GROWS EVEN MORE.

03 FUSION

THIS PROJECT CALLED FOR A BOUTIQUE HOTEL FOR THE NEW BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING SCHOOL ON CAMPUS. THE IDEA OF BRINGING TOGETHER MEDICINE AND ENGINEERING COINCIDED WITH THE IDEA OF BOOLEANING TWO SHAPES TOGETHER. AN ALGORYTHM THEN APPEARED OF A+B=C. THIS IDEA OF FUSING TOGETHER TWO THINGS TO FORM ONE GREATER OBJECT APPEARS IN FOUR WAYS THROUGHOUT THE PROJECT. THE FIRST WAY IS FORM. MANY SHAPES WERE TESTED, BUT A CUBE WAS CHOSEN BECAUSE IT REPRESENTED THE SHAPE OF A HOTEL ROOM AND WAS SIMPLE ENOUGH TO WORK WITH. THE MASSING WAS FORMED FROM CUBE + CUBE = NEW SHAPE THE SECOND WAY FUSION WAS INCORPORATED WAS NATURE + CITY = GREEN WALL. THE THIRD WAY FUSING WAS USED WAS IN THE MEETING SPACES. THE MEETING SPACES CONSIST OF INFORMAL +FORMAL MEETING SPACES = COLLABORATION SPACES. THERE ARE CONCEPTUAL CORK AND CHALK ROOMS FOR INSPIRATION AND THOUGHT AS WELL AS FORMAL MEETING ROOMS. THE FOURTH WAY FUSION WAS PUT INTO THIS PROJECT WAS INTO THE FACADE. THE FACADES DESIGN WAS BASED OFF OF NEURONS IN THE BRAIN (MEDICINE), AND IT CONSISTS OF A TUBE FILLED WITH ALGAE THAT WILL HELP THE BUILDING MAKE ITS OWN ENERGY (ENGINEERING). MEDICINE + ENGINEERING = BIOMEDICAL ENGINEEING. FUSION IS TRULY BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING IN A HOTEL.

RAIN WATER HARVESTING: THIS METHOD WILL UTILIZE THE RAIN THAT FALLS IN CHAMPAIGN AND ALLOW IT TO BE HARVESTED FOR USE WITHIN THE BUILDING. THIS WILL HELP REDUCE WATER BILLS AS WELL AS FOR CLEANING AND OTHER MAINTENANCE FOR THE HOTEL.

HANGING LIGHT REFLECTORS: THIS ARTISTIC FEATURES REFLECT THE LIGHT THAT HITS THE TOP OF THE BUILDING AND TRANSMIT IT DOWN INTO THE GREEN SPACE BELOW, USING NO ENERGY.

GREEN WALL: THIS LIVING WALL WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO CHANGE WITH THE SEASON TO PROVIDE NOT ONLY ASHETIC VIEWS FOR THE GUESTS, BUT ALSO HELP HEAT AND COOL THE BUILDING.

GREY H20: THIS IS WASTEWATER THAT IS COLLECTED FROM VARIOUS UTILITIES THROUGHOUT THE BUILDING. BECAUSE IT DOESN’T NEED MAJOR BIOCHEMICAL TREATMENT IT CAN BE RE-USED FOR THE GREEN WALL.

04 THE COLLIDE

LIBRARY’S ARE NOT LOOKED AT AS QUIET PLACES ANYMORE, BUT INSTEAD AS SOCIAL GATHERING SPACES WHERE KNOWLEDGE CAN BE OBTAINED IN A QUIET ENVIRONMENT AS WELL AS A BUSY ENVIRONMENT. THE COLLIDE REPRESENTS THE PUSH AND PULL OF THE CITY VS. NATURE. THIS PUSH AND PULL IS SHOWN ON THE INTERIOR OF THE BUILDING WHERE DIFFERENT MEETING SPACES ARE PUSHED OUT AND PULLED IN OVER A LARGE ATRIUM IN THE CENTER OF THE BUILDING. THE FIRST FLOOR REPRESENTS THE CITY AND CONTAINS A MORE FAST PACED AREA. THERE IS A TRANSIT HUB ON THE FIRST FLOOR THAT REPRESENTS CITY LIFE AND SHOWS ALL OF THE TRAINS AND BUS TIMES. AS ONE GOES UP THE FLOORS THEY FIND THEMSELVES IN A MORE QUIET AREA OF THE LIBRARY THAT HOUSES OPENINGS TO SMALL OUTSIDE GARDEN READING AREAS. THE COLLIDE OF CITY AND NATURE IS ALSO SHOWN IN THE EXTERIOR MATERIALS OF THE BUILDING. FOR THE CITY AREA THERE ARE MORE OPENINGS TO SHOW VIEWS OF THE CITY AND THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE OUTSIDE WORLD. AS ONE GOES UP THE FLOORS THE EXTERIOR STARTS TO CLOSE OFF WITH CONCRETE TO FORM A MORE QUIET AND BLOCKED OFF AREA. THE WINDOWS THAT DO OCCUR ARE DESIGNED WITH WOODEN STRIPS ACROSS THEM LETTING IN DIFFERENT PATTERNS OF LIGHT THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SPACE.

CONCEPT

TO GIVE THE VISITORS OF THE LIBRARY THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS BY PUSHING AND PULLING AT THE LIBRARY IN ORDER TO GET CERTAIN QUALITIES FOR CERTAIN SPACES. THESE QUALITIES INCLUDE, SUNLIGHT, NOISE REDUCTION, VIEWS, AND GREENSPACES.

RESPECT TO SITE

TO USE THE PROXIMETY OF THE SITE TO NATURAL ATTRACTIONS, AND THEN PULL OR PUSH ON THE BUILDING IN ORDER TO ENPHASIZE THOSE NATURAL PARTS OF THE CITY. USE THE LIBRARY AS A SORT OF “SAFE HAVEN” WHERE ONE CAN ACCESS CITY LIFE AND NATURE ALL IN ONE BUIDING.

05 INVERSION

INVERSION WAS DESIGN FOR A SITE SPECIFIC DANCE TROUPE IN DANVILLE, IL. THESE DANCERS SHOWCASE INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES AND THEIR ABILITY TO DANCE WITH THEIR WHEELCHAIRS, WALKERS, AND CRUTCHES. THEY USE THEIR MOVEMENTS TO TAKE THEIR VIEWERS INTO ANOTHER WORLD OF EXPEREINCING MOTION. INVERSION IS A MODERN TAKE ON THE TRAVERSE STAGE SYSTEM. A NORMAL TRAVERSE STAGE CONSISTS OF ONE STAGE WITH AUDIENCE MEMBERS FLANKING THE SIDES. THIS STAGE CONSISTS OF THE INVERSE, WITH THE AUDIENCE WALKING DOWN THE MIDDLE AND VIEWING THE SHOW ON EITHER SIDE AS THEY MOVE THROUGH VARIOUS THEATRES PLACED THROUGHOUT THE SITE. EACH THEATRE IS MEANT TO PRESENT THE AUDIENCE WITH DIFFERENT VIEWS OF THE SHOW. THEATRE ONE HAS HIGH CEILINGS MAKING VIEWERS FEEL LIKE THEY ARE ON A SMALL SCALE. THEATRE TWO CONSISTS OF LOWER CEILINGS IN ORDER FOR THE AUDIENCE TO FEEL CLOSER TO THE DANCERS, AND THEATRE THREE CONSISTS OF A VERY DEEP PIT FOR THE VIEWERS TO LOOK DOWN UPON THE DANCERS. THE DEPTH OF THESE THEATRES ISN’T SEEN UNTIL ONE IS INSIDE OF THEM AND IN A WAY GIVING THE AUDIENCE AN INVERTED REALITY TO WHAT THEY MAY HAVE EXPECTED THE INTERIOR OF THE THEATRES WOULD LOOK LIKE.

THE IDEA OF INVERTING MATERIALS ALSO WAS EXPLORED IN THIS THEATER. A SMALL WALL OF TRANSLUCENT CONCRETE APPEARS ON THE INSIDE OF EACH THEATER. LIGHTS WERE THEN PLACED ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE CONCRETE TO ALLOW ILLUMINATION OF THE DANCERS PROPS. SINCE THE DANCER’S MAIN PROPS WERE DISABILITY DEVICES THIS WAS A WAY THEY COULD INCORPORATE THE PIECES WITHOUT THEM BEING IN THE WAY.

CITIES CONSIST OF URBAN JUNGLES IN WHICH WE, AS ARCHITECTS, DESIGN, LANDSCAPE, AND CONSTRUCT FOR THE VIEWERS BEST EXPERIENCE. AS DESIGNERS ONE OF THE BEST NATURAL ATTRIBUTES IS WATERFRONT PROPERTIES. AT THE HUMAN SCALE, THESE BODIES OF WATER ARE BUSTLING RECREATION CENTERS, BUT WHAT IF WE LOOKED AT THE INVERTED UNDERWATER VIEW. THIS VIEW SHOWS THESE WATERWAYS AS HIGHWAYS FOR AQUATIC SPECIES. THIS ALLOWS FOR THE TRANSFER OF SPECIES...EVEN THE INVASIVE ASIAN CARP. SINCE THESE FISH HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED IN THE MIDWEST THEY HAVE POWERED THROUGH OUR WATERWAYS DESTROYING THE RIVERFRONTS ALONG THEIR WAY. THIS IS WHEN WE HAVE TO ASK OURSELVES AS ARCHITECTS, WHY DO WE SPEND SO MUCH MONEY AND TIME DESIGNING THESE GREAT STRUCTURES IF THE PROPERTY THEY EXIST ON IS DESTROYED. THIS MOCK INSTALLATION IS A CALL FOR ACTION ON PROTECTING OUR NATURAL RESOURCES FROM THIS INVASIVE SPECIES.

SUNDIAL POINT

SUNDIAL POINT WAS DESIGNED FOR KICKAPOO NATIONAL PARK IN DANVILLE, IL. THIS DESIGN WAS MADE AS A CENTERPIECE FOR SITE SPECIFIC DANCE. SITE SPECIFIC DANCE INVOLVES DANCING WITH NATURE AND FEELING THE WORLD AROUND YOU. OUT OF THREE POSSIBLE SITES THIS PARTICULAR ONE WAS CHOSEN DUE TO ITS PROXIMITY TO THE LAKE. THE WALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SITE ACTS AS A SUNDIAL GIVING THE AUDIENCE THE ABILITY TO HAVE A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE DEPENDING ON THE TIME AND THE SUN EXPOSURE FOR THE DAY. NO TWO SHOWS WILL BE THE SAME. IT ALSO ALLOWS THE AUDIENCE TO EMERGE ONTO THE WATER WHILE STILL VIEWING THE DANCERS FROM ABOVE.

08 SUBTRACTION

SUBTRACTION TAKES THE TRADTIONAL SOLID RECTANGULAR CONTAINER OF A BOOKSTORE AND SUBTRACTS AWAY DIFFERENT ASPECTS. VOIDS ARE TAKEN OUT IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF THE LIBRARY IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE A MORE PUBLIC AND LOUDER AREA IN ONE SECTION OF THE BOOKSTORE AND A MORE PRIVATE AND QUIETER AREA IN ANOTHER SECTION OF THE STORE. . THREE DIFFERENT HIERARCHY’S OF VOIDS WERE USED IN THIS DESIGN. FIRST WAS TAKING VOIDS FROM THE FACADE OF THE BUILDING TO FORM THE TERRACE, NEXT WAS TAKING VOIDS FROM THE FLOOR SLABS LIKE THE MAIN CIRCULAR , AND LASTLY WAS TAKING VOIDS FROM INTERIOR ITEMS LIKE THE STAIRS. THIS PRODUCES VOIDS OF SPACE WITHIN THE BOOKSTORE THAT WILL SERVE AS COMMUNITY CENTERS AND PUBLIC SPACE, WHILE THE REST OF THE BOOKSTORE WILL BE MORE QUIET AND PRIVATE AREAS.

09 UNCENSORED

WE ARE CONSTANTLY BEING CENSORED, OUR SOCIETY TELLS US WHEN WE CAN AND CANNOT SPEAK OUT. WE ARE SHIELDED BY THESE BARRIERS DAILY. THIS DESIGN IN ITS TRANSPARENCY SHOWS THAT THESE BARRIERS SHOULD NOT BIND THE USER FROM EXPRESSING THEMSELVES, BUT INSTEAD FIND PEACE IN IT. AS ONE CIRCULATED THROUGHOUT THE PAVILION THERE IS A FLEXIBILITY TO USE THE SPACES BETWEEN THE GALLERY BOARDS AS COLLABORATIVE AREAS. THE TARP OF THE PAVILION IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A CANVAS FOR A PROJECTION SPACE. THE SIMPLICITY OF THIS PAVILION IS INTENDED TO SPEAK TO ITS USERS IN A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE.

PAC-MAN

STUDENTS NORMAL PATH OF TRAVEL

PAC-MAN WAS PHASE II OF A SENIOR YEAR INDEPENDENT STUDY. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT WAS TO MAKE AN INSTALLATION AT THE MAIN ARCHITECTURE BUILDING, SET IT UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, AND GAUGE PEOPLE’S REACTIONS OF THE PROJECT. FIRST THE PACMAN PATH WAS SET UP ONLY ALONG THE 3 MAIN PATHS PEOPLE TAKE INTO THE BUILDING WITH ONE GHOST AND A PACMAN FIGURE. THE NEXT NIGHT MORE GHOSTS WERE ADDED AND THEIR PATHS WERE MADE TO EXPERIMENT IF PEOPLE WOULD CHANGE THEIR DAY TO DAY ROUTINE IF SOMETHING NEW APPEARED. THE PROJECT ALSO TESTED THE POSITIVITY AND NEGATIVITY OF PEOPLE’S RESPONSES OF THE PROJECT. THE IDEA BEHIND THIS PROJECT WAS TO SEE IF SOMETHING VERY SMALL AND INNOCENT WOULD CAUSE GOSSIP AND EVEN CONTROVERSY ON CAMPUS. THE RESULTS OF THIS PROJECT WERE OVERWHELMING. STUDENTS TALKED BACK AND FORTH ON WHO “PACKMAN” COULD BE, WITH A MOSTLY POSITIVE CONNOTATION OF THE INSTALLATION. FACULTY DIDN’T FEEL THREATENED BY THE INSTALLATION TILL IT APPEARED INSIDE THE BUILDING AND BECAME A LARGE CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC.

A JIG-SAW WAS USED TO CUT THE GHOSTS AND PAC MAN SHAPES OUT OF MDF BOARD

THE BOTTOMS WERE MEASURED TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE LEVEL

WINDOW CLING MATERIAL IS ALSO CUT INTO 11.5” CIRCLES

EACH BOARD WAS MEASURED TO FIND THE PRECISE LOCATION OF THE CENTER

EACH SHAPE WAS PAINTED WITH A BASE COAT OF WHITE

SOME OF THE CIRCLES ARE SPRAY PAINTED TO MATCH THE DESIRED COLOR

ONCE THE CENTERS WERE CUT 1/2” THEY WERE PLACED TOGETHER TO FORM THE STAND UP STRUCTURE

EACH SHAPE WAS THEN SPRAY PAINTED THEIR APPROPRIATE COLOR

AFTER RECENTLY AQUIRING A SMALL 3D PRINTER I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON PROJECTS BOTH WITHIN AND OUTSIDE OF THE REALM OF ARCHITECTURE FROM DESIGNING LAMPSHADES TO PROTOPYING MODULES FOR REAL LIFE. ONCE UNDERSTOOD 3D PRINTING IS AN AMAZING WAY TO DIVE DEEPER INTO PROTOTYPING, MODELING, AND MODULAR BUILDING. BELOW ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF MY 3D PRINTING EXPEREINCE THUS FAR.
