TRANSITION OF EXPERIENCES GROUP CHARETTE Bardini Museum, Florence, Italy Skills: Rhinoceros, Illustrator, AutoCad, Photoshop Prompt: Create an addition to the Bardini Museum in order to attract a greater crowd. We embraced the different types of architecture, which correlated to the multiple types of art that exist in the current museum, by creating a contemporary addition of what became an egg shape dome. It began at the end of the current museum exhibition, to integrate the existing; and it also created additional space for temporary exhibitions, as well as a staircase that leads to the cafe and the panoramic view of the city. Our attempt was to create visibility from different points of view in the city, the most important being the Bardini Garden which it is currently a touristic spot ironically. To continue the same language, a similar gradient was added to the facade.

SERENE SUMMER PAVILION Hains Point, Washington, D.C.
Skills : Rhinoceros/Vray, Illustrator, Photoshop
Ronald Reagan Airport
For this project I studied the Serpertine Summer Pavilion, as well as other Japanese inspired buildings. I aimed to follow the theme of â€˜flyingâ€™ as the site is near the airport. I began the process by creating a repetition of the structure to create a rhythm and sense of movement throughout it. The columns were placed in specific parts to create a certain circulation within the Pavilion, and separate spaces. Aluminum panels sit on top of a deliberate column system, providing a series of connected spaces of different dimensions, while still keeping a clear view of the Potomac River, and the surrounding park.

Blagden Alley, Washington, D.C. Plaza & Building Design Hand Drawing, Rhinoceros, Model Making, AutoCad My design began with the hope to connect the residents of Blagden Alley, with the tourists, and vise versa. For this, I explored the concept of a rock and how this can be modified into different forms to represent the different people. Throughout the Alley, I also studied the different materials and texture that were seen. For inspiration I explored several precedents that represented this idea differentely, but I focused on the Stealth Winery in California which uses different textures throughout, and wire cages filled with rocks to passively heat and cool the spaces.

I used the wire cages filled with rocks to represent my concept, while making it more sustainable. It frames the entrance, and the building itself as it is seen in its front and back facade.

PLAZA LONGITUDINAL SECTION
The building is composed of two programs, a studio and a gallery. These two are composed of a series of spaces which represent a rock each - and are meant to take you on a journey of the history of Blagden Alley, which will allow the outsiders to connect to the space. Ideally, each space will represent a specific time of history from beginning to end so it becomes a learning experience.
ROOF PLAN 1/8’’=1’0’’ 20 ft.
The building it self is a play on gentrification, and how the history of Blagden Alley may be falling apart. Lastly, to connect the building to the plaza I created a repetition of the inverse, seen with the rock and the hole, and the underground with the highest slanted piece.

The process began by creating a specific module that would be repeated throughout a surface to create a facade. This module was created to define spaces by pulling and pushing a shape, and the facade was then created using the panneling tools on rhino.

LE COMPOSITION MODULE PROCESS
CONTEMPLATION SPACE KIT OF PARTS: Plinth, 5 walls of different lenghts, roof, 8 columns, 2 reflective pools Revit, Technical Drawing, Model Making, Illustrator Using the different architectural elements, a variety of spaces that inteacted with each other were created, while still providing privacy. It became a journey of wonder that introduced you to specific details as you walked through it, which led you to the final space of contemplation. I used sun light to imagine the circulation throughout the day, and the spaces that would be more occupied depending on the shade or the light.
LONGITUDINAL SECTION PERSPECTIVE
MODERN PAVILION Technical Drawing, Revit, Model Making 1 // Abstraction to Cube The painting Burial of Atala was abstracted to express its meaning through a cube form. It seeked to create a tangible object with no base, that portrayed its significance through each elevation. The design of the cube displays a series of layers through each elevation that each represent an important piece of the painting.
2 // Garden Context
The main concept expressed in the garden is ceremony. The monolith is used as the main focal point, and the plinth is manipulated to create different layers. The walls create and separate spaces along with the trees and hedges. As you come in from the plaza, there are L shape stairs that lead you through the main thresholds. These create a diagonal that take you to the garden and frame a perfect view of the monolith, which is the final destination.
3 // Pavilion The pavilion was adjusted to become structurally stable and create a series of spaces to make it habitable. The stairs became the datun line. To highlight them, I decided to differentiate their material from the rest. In addition, the repetitive L Shapes that surrounded the elevations became panels that mimicked the Eames House in California. These were able to continue the language of the cube in a more structural way. DATUM
