INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION

Date: February 2011 Team: Angela Arias, Giorgio Badalachi, Alvaro Meza, Felipe Rodriguez, Maria Beatriz Diaz. Cuidad Juarez, Mexico To face the social instability and the violence phenomenon that affects this territory we proposed the development of a building-monument that serve as urban articulator and element that generates identity and stability to the city. Surrounded by buildings of diverse uses in the PRONAF zone, the strategy was the division of the main program into five towers articulated by the exhibition room as the central space and heart of the project and urban structure. This strategy gives the same hierarchy to all the building uses, generating an interaction among them and the public space on the same level. It proposes various entrance points and erase the notion of front/back reinforcing the articulator character. The five towers are assembled in a common roof that generates a public space in a upper level, an operative topography that uses its folds to allow the development of a urban park for events, forums, exhibitions and projections. Over the volumes that emerges from the topography we proposed a graffiti park along with projections of the city dynamics and the buildings. The monument interacts with the uses, acquires an urban dimension and change according to the activities. As an extension of this urban strategy we proposed the distribution in different spots of the city, some elements connected between them and the main building. The Urban Transmitters broadcast in real time what happens in the city and in the Mediatheque, creating a system that allows the presence of the public in each point, generating confidence, security and compelling the city identity.

RFP RESPONSE: HABITAT HARLEM

Date: August 2016 Team: Jonathan Cobb, Eric Goh, Patrick Li,Maria Diaz. HPD Sustain NYC RFP Response Instructor: Brian Loughlin New York The common thread in the East Harlem Community Plan and Community Visioning Report is a desire for a healthy East Harlem. Block Four made it our goal to deliver just that. Our vision is to bring about a healthier East Harlem through our work on this vacant lot. We consider a healthy community to possess these four traits: Contains multi-layered diversity Promotes physical activity and healthy decision-making Builds strength through relationships. Has the financial sustainability to ensure longterm viability Motivated by these guiding principles, Block Four has provided affordable housing for a wide range of incomes, familial status, and ages. By utilizing the Active Design Guidelines, we encourage physical activity and promote personal connections. Our community facility partners—a community oriented gym and a Federally Qualified Health Center—will provide a strong foundation to combat obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. And our financial footing will ensure that El Habitat benefits East Harlem for generations.

MICRO INTERVENTION STRATEGY

Date: December 2012 Architecture Thesis Instructor: Stefano Anzellini Bogota, Colombia The proposal works as a replicable urban micro intervention and seeks to generate a strategy to facilitate areas of informal origin and slums in the city of Bogotรก. Starting from the physical, formal and social conditions of the place, the intervention was designed to occupy the existing empty lots and integrating them with the context of the informal city, complementing, structuring and potentiating the already existing dynamics. Each building takes into account for its design, the assigned program, the shape and size of the lot and its location within the neighborhood. Achieving good relations with the street and enhancing the activities of the place.

Structural Modulation System

Taking the program of a cultural center and adding public spaces and community needs, all components are reconfigured in hybrid units that generate more activity in the street and the neighborhood. These units are distributed in the different lots of the project according to their size and location.

Wood and plants are the protagonists that merge in a balanced relationship with its location and its surroundings. Salvio will be an icon of architecture in Bogotรก, welcoming its visitors through a fantastic first floor, where you can find an exclusive coffee and an exquisite delicatessen that will serve as a mouthpiece for the spacious and bright semi-basement. It will create a neighborhood market with a global perspective. wIn addition to being a gastronomic collective, with a great cultural and musical movement, it will have 8 floors of long-stay apartments to meet the most demanding needs of the city.
