I am a student at The New School, Parsons School of Design in my second year of the Master of Architecture Program. Through my previous schooling, my current education at The New School, and my personal and professional design and making endeavors, I have honed a wide set of design and making skills that are evidenced in the following work. From analog design and making methods to digital creation and fabrication, I have accumulated a wide gamut of skills that I am continuing to sharpen and refine inside and outside of school. As I continue to grow as a designer, there are three points from which my work stems: craftful execution, social responsibility, and narrative story-telling. The following projects contain a sample of work from a wide range of time, scales, and mediums.Â


SHIFT

Fall 2016 The New School, Parsons School of Design Kimberly Ackert This is the first studio that I have ever taken that challenged us to use daylighting as a point of departure for an architectural concept. The sun is a complex and ever-changing entity which made designing a building for it one of the most complex undertakings I have ever done. The program for the building was left fairly open so that the study of daylight remained in the foreground. It was to be a sacred space that contained a main gathering space, secondary gathering space, cloister, library, art gallery, residence rooms, and the accompanying support spaces. Â Early in the project I began experimenting with the idea of using shifting and overlapping planes to manipulate daylight in section. This idea grew into a system of panels that move and undulate across the project to diffuse, reflect, and filter daylight.

QUEENSBORO BIKE HUB Fall 2015 The New School, Parsons School of Design Annie Barrett

From the outset of this project it was important to me to develop a thesis for the project that speaks to the act of biking. Through site studies and my own experiences as a cyclist, I decided that the project should be about speed. I wanted to use architectural language, color, and spatial progression to slow bikers down rather than using signage and lights. The program of the project is simple: Elevated bike tunnel, courtyard, cafe, and restroom/changing spaces. The facade system is derived from the respective speeds of cars, bikes, and pedestrians. The panels slowly move closer together as you move towards the center of the project, giving you an implicit sense of movement and deceleration.


The site is located directly between the Queensboro Bridge and the Queensboro Bridge Plaza on a narrow strip of land which contained an existing bike path. By studying the site intensely in section, I discovered that cyclists had to cross a dangerous high-speed intersection. To fix this, I elevated the bike path and situated the program around it.

Spring 2016 The New School, Parsons School of Design Andrew Bernheimer, David Leven How to house people ethically is a question that continues to grow in importance for the field of architecture. This studio challenged us to work within the existing context of Sugarhill in Manhattan and grapple with the forces of zoning, social responsibility, architectural form making, and spatial quality. Our team chose to move the project in a direction directed at generating commerce and revenue by inserting a piece of architecture that houses an entrepreneurial incubator on the ground floor. Our project occupied a site that is an existing park right next to an existing NYCHA building on the corner of 155th and St. Nicholas Ave. We created a 3 layer scheme that houses 3 distinct programs of use: Work, Play, and Live.

MADE OBJECTS Various Times Various Mediums Personal Work

Since 2010, I have become fascinated in the process of learning to design and make beautiful and functional things. This interest spans across different mediums and displays my ability to translate craft into areas beyond architecture. While fluent in contemporary digital design programs, I find it both important and gratifying to use my hands to craft. This collection of images catalogues my interest in realizing objects that I have designed.
