Public Pool Natatorium

6054 S Damen Ave, Chicago IL

Lindbloom park has several fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, and a pool. The current public pool is a great place for kids and families to enjoy in the summer. A new enclosure would allow for the pool to be available year round. This pool enclosure was designed around concave (embracing) and convex (repelling) curves. In plan the curve is meant to pull people in and keep them near the pool, in section they are used to make a comfortable interior space. The structure is comprised of three primary trusses in which the roof is hung. To help prevent uplift, cable net windows hold the roof down at the outer trusses. The hanging acoustic baffles also function as luminaires and lane line guides for swimmers on their backs.

Universal Space This widespan structure is not site specific. It would be used as a universal space e, convention hall, plaza or atrium canopy. A modular hexa agonal structure is covered with triangular ETFE cushions. Each module has seven sets of rotating louvers. Since these louvers can rotate horizontally and vertically, it has full control of the su unlight. Photovoltaics and reflective materials can be used to abso orb or reflect light energy at any time of day. This system cou uld be automated to absorb as much energy as possible, mainta ain consistent uniform natural lighting, and/or create an aestheticallyy interesting, constantly changing environment.

Highrise Universal Space

Two major issues with urban environments today are air quality and solar heat gain. This theoretical highrise building uses passive solar energy to help clean city air while cooling it simultaneously. Its diagrid structure becomes less dense as it reaches the top because loads are less and materials can be conserved.

The two thermal gardens in the structure allow hot air to gather on the south side of the building. The heat rises and passes through a series of lattices with growing on them (light green). The cooler air circulates back down and any excess hot air is exhausted at the top on the north side. Thermal Garden

Modular Housing

S Calumet Ave and E 60th St, Chicago IL In this studio we designed two simply constructed prototypes for affordable housing on the south side of Chicago. Our studio worked with High Tech Housing Inc. for consulting. When designing our prototypes, we were limited to a 16’ wide Chicago lot and typical timber framed modular construction. Some distinct features of these houses include a large outdoor deck space on the second floor that can be accessed from the outside from every floor, including the basement (prototype A) and a large skylight that penetrates all the way down into the kitchen (prototype B).

Modular Hotel North Beach, Miami FL

The goal was to design a luxury modular hotel that would fit in witth the e surroun ndin ng Miam mi Modern architecture. The concept emphasizes an ease of circulation n flow w. The flow beginss upon n arrival of the guest and attracts them towards the distinguiishing factor of the site, the North h Beacch of Miami. For this project we needed to examine an entirely different climate. Miami’’s sun beats down almost vertically year round and the high humidity require es specific cooling syste ems. Thiis building takes advantage of the environment using photovvoltaics, earth tube es, an nd a dessiccant dehumidification cooling system.

Re-Ligare Institute Harrison and Wabash, Chicago IL

This studio was a student steel design competition from ASCA based upon the idea of an urban retreat. The program was a health spa and a community/fitness center. In order to truly escape the urban environment one must travel quite some distance. While getting to this non-urban location one would pass through several sections of other manmade environments: urban, sub-urban, and rural. In several parts of these places there are moments of natural landscape that peak out from the built environment: forests, prairies, and lakes. This design focuses on these moments and uses them to connect programmatic elements. The building acts as a container that brings these moments back to the city.

Structure Assembly The floor plate expands eight feet more on every floor. To achieve this cantilever there are a series of columns that lean out away from the core. These columns have a pin connection at the ground level and to the lattice roof structure that distributes the load back to the concrete core. On the exterior there is a diagrid structure that is hung from the top of these columns. This diagrid face holds up the ends of the floors and accounts for shear. The interior walls that line up with the columns and diagrid contain cross cables that account for shear in the other direction. Benefits The columns and diagrid form a grided floorplate so that the building can easily adapt to any program alterations. The uniform grid also creates identical members making this building fairly inexpensive and easy to construct. If the building is no longer needed for use, all of the steel can be easily dismanteled and recycled.

Passive Strategies Having the building lean towards the south allows sunlight to penetrate deep into the atrium. The lean also creates shade from the summer sun and allows penetration of the winter sun in the programed spaces. On hot summer days the facade and roof can be opened to exhaust hot air that would accumulate at the top of the atrium.


Chair1 I chose to build a chair in our design-build furniture class. The full scale sketch model (right) was made to experiment with proportions and comfort. It is fully adjustable for heights and seat angles. I found a 106 degree angle at a 7 degree slope to be the most comfortable. For the final product, I designed an elegant, comfortable, and economically constructed chair. The chair is built primarily out of 1/2 in thick birch plywood strips, maximizing the use of a full 5’x5’ board. The legs and seat frame pieces are laminated together to make 1 in thick pieces. The load from the seat back is transferred through the armrests (via lap joint) and then down the legs. The only screws used in the chair were for the main seat supports. The coushins are made from inexpensive pipe insulation wrapped with red vinyl.
