EXTERIOR VIEW The project is a repackaging of the existing building by way of enveloping it in additional interior and exterior spaces, as well as opening it up to its surroundings. This was made possible by the geometric folding and unfolding of the existing architectural form.

TITLE Michael Reese Center PROJECT TYPE Residential, Retail and Office Complex LOCATION S Martin Luther King Dr between E 26th St & E 31st St, Chicago

SITE IMAGE The project is located on the site once occupied by the Michael Reese Hospital, which was partially designed by Walter Gropius. As part of the Chicago Bauhaus District, the site shares a history with the nearby Illinois Institute of Technology campus, designed by Gropius’ contemporary, Mies van der Rohe. CONCEPT MODEL The formal concept for the site is born from the literal juxtaposition of Mies’ project for IIT over the current layout of the medical campus. Therefore, the sites will not only share a geographical and historical context, but an architectonic one too. Opposite Page:

TITLE Bloomingdale Visual Arts Trail PROJECT TYPE Indoor / Outdoor Art Gallery LOCATION W Bloomingdale Ave & N Damen Ave, Chicago

SITE PLAN The site includes an abandoned railroad track known as the Bloomingdale Trail and its immediate surroundings. CONCEPT Tiptoeing: The building should have a minimal presence and be a mere improvement on the existing context; it should take advantage of its strengths, and enhance its weaknesses.

TITLE Public Library + Short-Term Housing PROJECT TYPE Multi-Residential Complex and Library LOCATION W Grand Ave, N Milwaukee Ave & N Green St, Chicago

SITE PLAN Located on the busy intersection of Grand Ave and Milwaukee Ave, the project for a Public Library and Short-Term Housing reintroduces the concept of “community” to a mixed-use neighborhood whose identity is mostly defined by billboard ads and store marquees. The users as well as the public have access to a lowered interior courtyard with a view of the underground “Grand” Blue Line train station. CONCEPT MODEL The formal concept for the project begins with the idea of creating shadowplay in the interior courtyard, as made possible by the volumetric gradation and spatial hierarchy of the building.

TITLE Uchronic Architecture: The Real and the Unbuilt PROJECT TYPE Dwelling Unit

PAST

LOCATION Uchronia & Pantopia PRESENT-FUTURE

UCHRONIC TIMELINE Uchronic doesn’t exclusively refer to fictional architecture, it includes unbuilt architecture that exists outside of our linear chronology. A uchronic project is of equal (if not greater) value than a project based on the present; for it can be argued that this value can be found in its design process, more so than in its origin or even its results. CONCEPT ILLUSTRATIONS The project is set in a uchronic society where wireless interconnection has become the norm, making urban and suburban life as we know it obsolete. The city has been decentralized, and transportation, travel and commuting have become futile, leaving the entire transportation infrastructure empty. Unused vehicles have become the construction materials for new, adaptable and relocatable dwelling units. Opposite Page:
