MILAD ROGHA | ARCHITECTURAL PORTFOLIO


Born and raised in Isfahan, Iran, I got my bachelor in Electrical Engineering with the concentration in Control Systems. Soon after finishing my undergraduate education, I perused my interest; architecture. Studying architecture for two years ,complimented with practical experience, triggered my ambition for higher levels of education which led me to study abroad.

4

Moved to the United States, I got my master’s in architecture at the University of North Carolina Charlotte, School of Architecture.

During this unique experience, I gained various skills, digital and practical, and were exposed to different aspects and scopes of the career both in academia and practice. Architecture to me is similar to a bridge; It provides “connection” in a world of separation; Connection in distinct scales; It connects people, spaces, cities, cultures, moments. In addition, no two Architecture are the same nor two problems have the same answer in this career. This “uniqueness” and the ability to connect makes every task interesting and motivating.

GIRAFFE: A MULTI-VARIENT DESIGN SYSTEM TO GENERATE CONTEXTUALLY AND ENVIRONMENTALLY EFFICIENT ARCHITECTURE

6

As of today more than half of the human population lives in urban areas. This number is expected to reach two-thirds by the year 2050. The increasing migration toward cities every year and the lack of space will lead to a need for vertical architecture, specifically skyscrapers. Despite this accelerating need of the design for such architecture, there is a lack of a comprehensive tool that can address multi aspects of the design computationally. The concept of Assemblage Theory, outlined by Manuel Delanda, indicates that an assemblage is a whole made of parts coming together, each with its specific capacities,

to form a greater whole. This whole is more than a collection of objects and cannot be broken down into its elements. An architecture can be seen as an assemblage of assemblages.3 Material, form, and program, each being an assemblage of internal elements related in the exterior to one another affect each other to form a whole which is irreducible to the elements, yet each element is identifiable in the whole. This project describes Giraffe, a computational multi-variant design tool that generates iterations for a tower in order to yield contextual, environmental, and programmatic solutions that are operating without hierarchy to produce a new potential of verticality. The goal is to achieve a set of forms that produce the maximum view corridor for its occupants, provide the most sun exposure in order to reduce energy consumption and have contextual values.

Tr ansition: From tow pond to dog-park...

16

The task of this project is to design a tow pound facility for the NYPD. Located in Port Morris (an industrial neighborhood in the South Bronx,) the site is oriented east-west from 138th street to East 136th street and is currently used by a recycling company. Detached from its adjacent neighborhood Mott Haven - by the Bruckner Expressway, Port Morris is an industrial zone with small to mid-size facilities and companies, a high volume of traffic, and extensive air and sound pollution. It is also located on a floodplain extending along the East River. One of the dominant social issues is that of the disconnection of Port Morris from Mott Haven- not only by the means of access, but also in a sense of isolation from social and community engagement. This implies a need for communal spaces and opportunities for public interaction.

The project conceives of the stadium as a public square for Lagos, Nigeria. Situated beneath a nexus of interconnected routes from site’s edge, the recessed stadium breaks down the imposing perimeter of conventional stadium typologies. A perimeter high density affordable housing block is elevated above grade offering privileged views of football matches below. On the interior a series of public infrastructures containing recreation, clinic/ social services, and a market bridge the housing blocks, creating a public promenade above the stadium. A roof garden with PV mounted ETFE canopy services as a public park and shade structure supporting transitional housing.

CNE 2050 COMMUNITY+NATURE TOPICAL STUDIO | URBAN | 2018

32

CNE2050 renovates Camp North End located in the North End Smart District of Charlotte, NC, through the concept of time. A healthy city is one that is constantly growing and under development, however, it is important to maintain context and culture. CNE2050 divides itself into three zones, past, future, and a buffer zone in between. The “past” zone focuses on preserving the massive warehouses and renovating them to contain mixed use spaces. It also reactivates the rail infrastructure into a light rail that passes through the site and will connect to the Blue Line. The “future” zone brings in IT and other technological companies into this area with the architecture mimicking its new hosts. While the first zone is about preserving and using traditional materials, this zone’s architecture will be more parametric and using other innovative methods.

PRELUDE Integrated Studio| 2018

In Collaboration with Dante Balassone

42

This project is situated in the Zelazowa Wola province of Sochaczew, 60km West of Warsaw. The site is located on the estate on which Frederick Chopin was born and memorialized through an existing visitor center and museum separated from the build site by the Urata River. The proposal is made in response to the desires of the Frederick Chopin Institute for a multifunctional music center that should include an acoustically-optimized 650-person concert hall, 150-person chamber hall, conference hall, recording studios, historical display area, educational spaces, offices, and sub-grade parking. The music center should also integrate itself in the landscape of the existing gardens and respect the Birthplace of Chopin just North of the build site. A comprehensive site analysis identifies 86 trees that are to be preserved in the proposal.

CREEK VALLEY CONNECTOR

North Myers Street to Seigle Avenue This section of the corridor is a transition between higher density on the western side of the Greenway and the lower density on the east. The Little Sugar Creek Greenway is an important local asset that connects Belmont Avenue and the adjacent neighborhoods to other parts of the city. Seigle Avenue has already had its streetscape updated; traffic issues related to the steep slope at this intersection warrant additional traffic control such as a traffic circle. Belmont Corridor study - Proposal design There is a large amount of open land along Seigle south of Belmont. This area has the potential for use for smaller scale multi-family housing and/or urban agriculture. The

HACK²

Digital Prototype An interdisciplinary research

The purpose of this experiment is to find different configurations of fold that can be interpreted as an architecture; a habitable space. Hence, a set of stepper motors are controlled by a microcontroller, scripted to work in response to a parameter. This parameter can be sound, human interaction and/or so forth.
