1 SURFACE

PEOPLE’S TOWER Location: Midtown Manhattan, NY Professor: Margaret griffin Fall 2017

Project This project aims to re-examine the role of the tall building in the city of New York. Specifically, to examine the role of stacked profiles to generate multiple silhouettes to transform the typology of the tower. Consider the particular impact of the building envelope, its material and geometrical determinations on the site within a tall building form, and its capacity to use transformation as a methodological tool to guide a rigorous approach to the design of a new high rise. The specificities of the tall building envelope will expose the tight dependency existing between serial determinations - of both geometric and material order - of the outermost surface, the volumes of enclosure (profile), the site’s surroundings, and the tower’s iconic performance in todays metropolis.

Proposal SurFace is two residential towers located in Murray Hill on Manhattan overlooking the East River.  The profile of these towers are derived from the profiles of human faces one of the most identifiable shapes to the human brain - in order to create a familiar yet ambiguous form with a unique and identifiable profile.  Moving from the conceptual and the abstract to the physical realities of building, the work of this project aims to productively embrace novelties and differences in the production of new silhouettes with the capacity for multiple readings within the context of the metropolis.

2 CITY GATES Location : Oslo Fjord, Norway Professor : Julien de smedt Spring 2017

Project As at the fastest growing city in Europe it will need to develop according to its influx of new inhabitants. Yet, at the moment the demand in housing largely exceeds supply and raises a serious question as to how architecture will approach this and how we architects will take part in shaping the future of Oslo. With the premise to address large scale development with a program and environmental mind, propose a project which aims at combining infrastructural needs and architectural outcomes. Connect the tremendous efforts (and expense) made in the infrastructural sector with the building sector in attempts to redefine urban development. If infrastructure can literally get the foundation for architecture to occur, we will join the efforts of the studio and explore ways to densify the urban geography to reach higher levels of efficiency and sustainability for society. The expense of architecture is tremendous on society and the environment. By combining a large amount of the building sector with infrastructure we aim at addressing environmental concerns in a new way.

Proposal Due to restrictions on land, a decision between the studio concluded it would be best to build upon the water. A transportation loop containing trains, trams, and pedestrian walkways connects all the projects of the studio as well as integrating its self into the land transportation already established in Oslo. “City Gates� is an 8,000,000 square foot residential and recreational building located in the path of the sole entrance to Oslo through the Fjord welcoming cruise ships and visitors of all kind. The structure acts as a residential building, park, dock, and an iconic threshold for the city. Its form is reminiscent of the iconic City Hall which gets reinterpreted into a new programmatic and aesthetic hybrid repurposed for the demands of Oslo in year 2100. 16

3 OTHER LANDSCAPE Location:

???

Professor: Molly hunker Spring 2017

Proposal Other Landscapes is a drawing course in which conventional systems of landscape representation are explored and tweaked in order to rethink the subtlety, complexity and contradictory nature of today’s contemporary environments, while simultaneously inventing new one. Leveraging the qualities and characteristics observed in the photograph of a selected landscape I create drawings that, while experiment with how architecture can represent the facts and factions of contemporary landscapes through orthographic projection, also potently and critically interrogate the environments in which we are, as architects, work. The drawing invests in the many diverse elements that make up the landscape - and not just what it looks like - but perhaps more importantly, its sensational qualities.

“landscape is not simply something viewed as scenery or grasped quantifiably like geography; it is also felt” - Yoko Nose

Curator of the Toyota Municipal Museam of Art in response to: Junya Ishigami’s “Another Scale of Architecture”

4 PEELING PROGRAM NEW YORK STATE FAIR-GROUNDS Location: Syracuse, NY Professor:

Gallo Canizares

Fall 2015

Project The New York State Fair Grounds is a large attraction to hundreds of thousands of people all year round and within it, embeds an essential identity for the city of Syracuse. The fair ground’s role of attracting masses of people throughout the year is reliant on its ability to entice and remain contingent to the desires and expectations of the people which attend events at the venue - to do this, propose a building to revitalize the space of Chevy Court which will not only engage with the state fair goers and users all year round, but will attract new demographics of people and introduce a new programatic and social engagement.

Proposal

The ground plane of a fair ground holds specific implications as the primary plane of social engagement establishing a deep connection between the public and ground plane on which they roam; where all things are interacted with or observed. In response to this planar ground condition, the building’s mass peels itself out of the ground plane as if to establish a new relationship between the people, the ground, and enclosure: a structure not typically seen in the programatic genus of a fair ground (typically filled with rides, booths, stands, carts, etc.). The three strips represent three types of program (theater, circulation/lobby, and spa) chosen to stimulate a new population of users for this space.

5 SUPPORTING INFRASTRUCTURES Location: New York City, NY Professor: Terrance Goode Spring 2016

Proposal Knowledge is power. A library is the epitome of what we consider to be the physical representation or knowledge within a community. It is a place of learning, education, progress and development. It is this association with education that we see a library as a place of both tradition and progress; using information from the past and present to push the limits of the things we consider today to be held as fact. New York, in a similar sense represents a pace of progress, development and the advancement and application of mankind as it is the home to some of the worlds largest and most significant avant-garde cooperations. None of this progress is possible without the support and structure of education and knowledge. Symbiotic Structures solidifies this symbol with which people view libraries. A central core stands tall and offers support to the programs that surround it. The core acts as a structural anchor, supporting all associated programs through cantilevering structure making the existence of these programs to depend on the stability and power of knowledge. Symbiotic Structures does not alienate these programs but embraces them in a symbiotic nature: Symbiotic Structures will support the structures but it relies on these programs to counter-cantilever one another. Symbiotic Structures is willing to support these programs as long as these programs are assisting Symbiotic Structures by helping to support themselves. It’s the push and pull and dependency of all programs that keeps Symbiotic Structures stable.

6 SALINA STREET ARCADE Location: Downtown Syracuse, NY Professor: Randall Korman Fall 2016

Project Syracuse downtown, a once crucial and extremely active location due to its industrial and commercial significance is in need of revitalization spatially, economically, and socially. Within a city of such rich learning, cuisine and history there lacks space for all the characters of the city to engage with each other - inhibiting the cultural and social development of the city.

Proposal Salina street arcade works to bring members of the Syracuse community together in the heart of the downtown region by providing a public space and encouraging pedestrian interaction. For this site, an arcade was most logical - providing a visual and physical connection between one of downtown Syracuse’s most popular streets filled with restaurants and bars to Clinton street, a more intimate street. The arcade investigates the use of concrete and its role as “public material” in durability, mass, lighting properties, and association while simultaneously tying to Syracuse’s industrial history in a more contemporary and familiar material.
