The Museo del Tango is a museum and milonga (tango dance hall) located in the neighborhood of San Telmo, Buenos Aires, considered to be the birthplace of tango. In the city of Buenos Aires, if a walk down a city block is like a basic tango dance, dodging and dancing with the street life, then this project acts as a firulete: an adornment - an extra dance step in the traditional tango that does not interfere with the principal movements (of getting from point A to point B). The building draws upon the street life by lifting up to create a welcome plaza and courtyard, revealing the milonga space above and creating a fluid circulation pattern drawing visitors in a loop up and through the building.

St. Louis, Missouri is a shrinking city with an urban fabric that continues to lose density and open up vast stretches of vacant land within the city limits. The basis of this studio project was to locate a plot of vacant land adjacent to a growing and flourishing neighborhood to implement a housing project which would engage the street, the neighborhood, and the individual in new ways in order to promote a positive community dynamic. Live/Work studios and a pronounced front stoop activate the sidewalk, a threshold creates a sense of arrival and security, and the relationships of the terraces, balconies, and central courtyard focus inward and provide maximum opportunities for interaction amongst residents.

The Parish of St. Bernard, Louisiana was one of the areas most devastated by Hurricane Katrina. As a result, the Army Corps of Engineers has embarked on one of its largest projects to barricade and enclose the already-below-sealevel parish and its waterways into the city of New Orleans with a series of large concrete walls. This wild boar hunting camp provides a step to implementing alternative solutions to that wall and attempts to reverse some of the damage caused by human interference with the environment. The project aims to address some of the more fundamental problems of the region like the “invasive species� of wild boar and nutria that degrade the valuable wetlands, with the ultimate goal of promoting new growth of the wetlands and Cyprus trees, the once natural storm barrier to the city of New Orleans.

The practice of aerial arts is an exploration of self and space, and self and other within a space – understanding how contortions of the body can reveal new relationships with space and an audience, while the practice also tends to mitigate between community-based outreach programs and performance art. This Center for Aerial Arts explores these relationships on the building scale and on the site scale, navigating both physical and cultural shifts of the site. This project endeavors to act as a hinge in the city, sitting physically on a unique grid-shift and culture-shift within the city fabric, welcoming community activity from low-income neighborhoods to the north and the “high culture” associated with the Grand Center Arts District to the south. The juxtaposition of this relationship is heightened by a contrast in materiality - the heavy masonry of a measured classroom and studio tower with a suspended light-weight, fabric-wrapped, and scale-less performance space.

AERIAL ROPE

AERIAL HOOP

Also known as Corde Lisse. An aerial apparatus that resembles a vertically hanging rope, but it is usually made of soft cotton about 25-30 mm thick, with a loop on the top side of the rope.

Also known as Circeaux or Lyra. A steel apparatus that looks like a suspended hula-hoop. Aerial hoops are usually available in single and double tab configurations and are rigged based on desired levels of swinging and spinning.

TIGHT ROPE A tensioned wire between two points, approximately twenty feet minimum. Artists traverse by either using a balancing tool or “freehand,” using only one’s body to maintain balance.

40

AERIAL FABRICS Also known as tissues or silks. An apparatus consisting of a long piece of cloth with the center of the cloth suspended from above and the end of the cloth going past the ground for beginners and just to the ground for advanced users.

TRAPEZE One or more 36” wide horizontal bars suspended with vertical lines attaching it to overhead mount points. Swinging trapeze and Flying trapeze involve greater motion.
