Miami Performance Hall Studio 2GA This project was the exploration of varying facade patterns inspried by materials used for ship sail fabrication. We wanted to test materials that provided large span coverage with extreme flexibility and concavity. The fibrous materials were arranged in strategic directions to create a part to whole effect read as an overall pattern along with individual panels. We also wanted to experiment with the untouched territory of vertical stacking of the three theaters within the program. This was to emphasize the elitest mentality of the theater society. By elevating the main theater we have forced the grand procession in an extreme veritcal-sense. The atrium style approach also gave unique opporunities to maximize views within the Miami, FL environment. As the project progressed the fibrous materials tranformed into structural elements to allow for such large spans. By patterning the structure we wanted to skew the typical view of a glass facade bulding. Along the section the floorplates are slighly recessed as one decends through the building. This is to allow for maximum sun protection without adding mass to the exterior facade.

Jacks City: City for 5 Million People CS 2GB

The idea of challenging public vs private space is what Jacks City represents. By flipping the scale on public and private spaces you now have private spaces that feel public and public spaces that feel private. The overall scheme resembles the configuration of the classic game of jacks. Straight lines from point A to point B represent the x-configuration creating streets. At the intersection of these streets are public plazas represented by the spherical objects at the extremes of one individual jack. This basic set up is simply a variation of two basic elements; the street and the square. By simplifying the makeup of a city the inhabitants are able to add small aesthetic details to give its unique personality and feel. While this typical arrangement is what is viewed from the public perspective it is what is happening in the interstitial space that gives it that extra attention. As the jacks begin to converge and multiply the in between space develops as private space, although this space is not what is considered traditionally ‘private’ as it is shared by the surrounding residences. This over-exaggerated private space allows for a small community to work as one without being confined by the blocks they reside within. By avoiding the neighborhood block-like set up a commonality is spread throughout the city. i.e. your neighbor is not always someone you share the same block with.

As the streets converge the public plazas emerge. Within these plazas there are opportunities for community areas, commercial buildings, and open spaces. It is at the discretion of its local inhabitants to create the demand for the plazas makeup. These provide the shared urban space necessary for daily function within a city, especially the size of 5 million people. It gives a breaking point and a sense of relief to the surrounding residential fabric. There is no downtown nor shopping center nor grand mall, the public urban space is spread evenly throughout the city. This causes the surrounding residences to be directly responsible yet effected by the development of the public space and encouraging the upkeep of these areas. Each street is of the same length and each plaza of the same size. So as the population grows so do the streets and plazas. Since plazas depend on streets and streets depend on plazas the urban growth stays consistent and proportionate. This city is not built on point A to point B efficiency. I do not argue for this fact. What I do want to challenge is the daily exchange of public and private spaces. Forcing the entire city to be self-aware of its surroundings not just in their private homes but within the public realm and what they encounter on a daily basis.

Chicago Urban Housing Studio 2GB

This project is based upon the traditional housing typologies of perimeter block and courtyard. It is a journey down the path of combining the two typologies and challenging their restraints. By beginning the transformation with a dual perimeter block, adding filleted corners, severing at specific locations then creating subtle rotations a dynamic form is created. As the inner rotations increase a delamination from the exterior happens and allows for the unique moments of interstitial space to occur. At each of these moments a communal field is shoved into the crevice. The bulbous opportunities vary in size and shape. Surrounding each communal field is a “neighborhood� of units fitting to the public program. Although the exterior facade mantains a monolithic form there are moments where it is shifted and peeled away to allow for balconies along unique perimeter units. These balconies disperse the hierachy of the overall community. The roof is activated by individual rooftop gardens for the interior units. To maintain the monothlThe perimeter facade pattern disguises the interior structure and floorplates while the interior facades allow for full disclosure of the interior workings of the units. The juxtapositiong of the two facades emphasizes the perimter block units versus courtyard units.

Mies Black Orchid VS 2GB

This project exhibits the exploration of black, Mies Van Der Rohe, and orchids. The process began with the study of Rorschach inkblots in mass production followed by 3D modeling of individual orchids of varying species. After multiple disections and sectional drawings the bookmatched qualities of the Barcelona Pavillion were imagined in 2D form. Lastly a formal layer was added to provide depth and interest throughout the overall installation. These drawings varied in print mediums from film, mylar, to bond. The stacking algorithim was enhanced by clear glass and backlights to providea realistic yet decieving approach to Mies’ Black Orchid.
