Five armatures were chosen, around which to analyze and compare the two specimens through two dimensional diagramming, three dimensional diagramming, and modeling. It was determined that spatially, linguistically, and structurally, the Villa Mairea is tantamount to a mushroom.

The analysis of the French Quarter focused on the apparent dichotomy visible in all aspects of the fabric and space. This division revealed itself through investigations of fabric, density, programmatic zoning, rhythm, and even landform. The diagram to the top right shows the permeability of the street wall through the public realm resulting in a gradated diaphaneity as one moves through the precinct. The inverse figure ground on the right middle corroborates this by illustrating a shift in density. The prescribed program for the museum itself consisted of a series of walls, each with their own spatial ideals. Far right, clockwise from top left is a composite, the Wall of Light, Wall of the Surveyor, and two central Volumes.

The design process star ted with the analysis of an object, in this case a capo, then a case was made to surround the object while displaying its geometric and functional proper ties. (above) Next, composite sections of this case(right) were used to create an entry, passage, and arrival sequence, which was used to inform the following project.

FRERET STREET FETE CONDITIONS FOUND IN THE OBJECT ANALYSIS WERE DRAWN UPON TO CREATE AND INFORM A SPATIAL SEQUENCE FOR A CURATED COLLECTION OF ART, SITUATED IN A SITE ON FRERET STREET IN NEW ORLEANS.


DATUM, DEFLECTION The initial object analysis resulted in a parti of “datum, deflection�. The resultant form for the project was generated by creating two predominant datums, with strategic deflections placed at decisive moments throughout. As a corollary to this condition, a spatial sequence was created to serve as a promenade through which one experiences a curated sequence of art, exploited for its inherent spatial idiosyncrasies.

The project brief called for a 1500 square foot health center to be designed on a steeply sloping site. Fifteen universities competed in the month-long competition, and construction started the week after the winning design was selected by the community. During our design process, we sought to create privacy for those seeking treatment, while accommodating the waiting patients in comfortable public spaces. We allowed adequate space for future development on the site and considered sustainable strategies that could be implemented. By angling the building on the southwestern portion of the site, it achieves three things: a north-south orientation, which accommodates wind patterns and natural sunlight; ease of construction (minimal excavation into the slope); and pushes the public spaces towards the road while removing the private spaces from public view. The straightforward programmatic layout moves patients and doctors sequentially along the programmatic bar. The building was to be designed with local materials and construction processes in mind. When presented to the communities, our design was highly favored but ultimately the economy of politics swayed the decision otherwise.

ESPRESSO CUP


A personal design, prototyping, and fabrication endeavor, produced of necessity in the interest of perfecting this consummate beverage, the form was generated by means of digital modeling software, then 3D printed in ceramic. The hemispheroidal section is designed to minimize turbulence within the cup while sipping, to prevent the amalgamation of the ideal three-layered shot, and prolong crema retention. The thickness of the vessel provides a thermal barrier to retain warmth between brewing and consumption.
