performance artist residence

residents

the intent for the artist residence was to provoke moments of spontaneous interactions between visitors and artists. Through the use of deployable walls to reveal practice rooms and the providing of dynamic public spaces, visitors are enticed to interact with artists both visually and physically.

urban filtration the intent behind this housing project was to deploy a frame work that could be repeated at other sites, which would then create a 24-hr downtown district. the project is meant to encourage more foot traffic in the city of newark through the use and manipulation of the field and its points. By strategically placing activity zones, the network of inter-related activities can be expanded to other parts of Newark, creating a downtown district that contains something to do at all hours of the day.

rural school gujarat,india The school attempts to provide a more interactive and personal experience for younger students while maintaining vernacular traditions. Using local materials, classrooms are grouped and modulated. The buffer and private spaces created surround the courtyard to break up chaotic circulation and provide more intimate and implied spaces

highline plaza: urban nexus in this project, the plaza is seen as a topo sufrace, carved out by the movement of people. the plaza provides spaces for interaction, alone time, market space, and a TKTS booth. paths from different access point and to end destination points define the form.

james st facade The idea for the facade was to take the bay window as a catalyst for interaction inside and outside the building, and redefine how influential the facade becomes in the social life of the building. By dividing the building into strips and shifting them the facade can start to define the level of interaction that takes place.

bayonne water taxi terminal the terminal was first conceptualized as a boardwalk, which provides one set path. if the board walk is broken and fragmented, multiple paths arise. with this idea, different modules were composed in a fragmented way to break up circulation clutter and to provide paths to specific users.
