The [*] Project


Designing an Addition for Yale Architecture School

The purpose of this project was to challenge the complex nature of Rudolph Hall by designing an addition to this building. My approach for this project was harmonizing the new building in a way which not only keeps all of Rudolph’s powerful design elements but also integrates them with some modern contemporary design. From one aspect drawing a connection between city, surrounding built environment, Rudolph hall, and from another aspect integrating the new building with people (public and student) were my two key factors through the process of design. As a university, my aim was to give an inviting sense from the interior while forming a new frame and perspective for building as a window to the city.

-Extruding the autrium causes a seperation between public and private programs

03-04

-Creating a court yard to bring daylight into the studios of the old building - placing the centeral area as a huge autrium to interact with the city and the old building

-lowering the height of the volume to match that of the adjacent building -increasing the height of the autrium in order to establish it as the tower of the building

-Following the vertical elements of Rudolph building and integrating them with the addition -create a frame as a window to the city

The San Antonio international hotel,flight observation and car rental for international Airport p

The site of The goal was challenging the relevance of the critical regionalist paradigm within the contemporary metropolitan field that is San Antonio. The project provided an opportunity to reflect San Antonio’s historical position as a regional city while speculating about its future on the national and conceivably international stage. Designing a form based on the regional grid which provides enough space for 600 open parking spots and create an interesting view to flight observation area was the priority.

The photo shows San Antonio International airport and all flight paths which was the the main goal of flight obseravtion hall.

the main concept was based on the site grid derived from its topography

converged the lines into three main groups

the three lines were determined for the volume of the building.

Architectural placemaking in the context of contemporary urban landscape

It is the time to define landscape in a larger scale more than the surrounding features of an area of land. Meanwhile we try to merge urban contemporary landscape, city, and barren environments to create a living city, the lack of active urban program in the context of this urban landscape leads to a less walkable and livable city. Parking area is part of the neglected spaces in different layers of the city. Since they are part of the street and accessible by public, by taking a much amount of the land, they are ruining the walkability of the city. There is a need for them to be engaged with the city landscape and people as well. Therefore, by expanding the landscape and merging it with this form of negative public space through an appropriate architectural peacemaking regarding to those lacks , a new living structure will be revealed, which does not only enlarge the social realm of the city and invite citizen to the city, but also shapes a new urban landscape.

19-20


Down town San Antonio is one of the least walkable forms of down dow town in American cities. River walk has the most amount off walkability in this area; while on the other hand, the absence of pedestrian in the rest of the down town is abundantly clear. With a significant amount of parking area, in my thesis the goal was to make this part of the city more walkable and living. Making some urban places which not only do engage people and city, but also, elevate the landscape into a new level.

Parking Lot Street

After analyzing all types of parking in the site, based on the location and circulation of people or vehicle, I identified the best part of each of one which has a potential to be the area of placemaking. This catalog is series of proposals based on the different situations of the city. Each proposal with orange color is an approach to connect the parking spaces either parking lot or parking garage to each other, and at the same time engage them with city. The combination of all these moments creates the urban landscape of my project along with various programs.

A monumental house for a contemporary Iranian character

Intricate writing and a ubiquitous sense of calmness are significant features of Nader Ebrahimi’s novels, the veteran Iranian novelist, screen writer and director. The design was formed with the combination of these two elements in a high urban dense site. Pushing back the building, and bringing more urban space to the street, presents a unique moment for the transition from urban pollution to house silence. The Museum represents a completely unique author who believed that calm nothingness of silence opens up new ways to the conscious.

Lighting Design - Materality Design Team- Prof. Taeg Nishimoto, Peyvand Ali Amiri

Tuplet is a floor lamp made of a self-supporting Buckram. Buckram is impregnatmesh fabric called Buckram ed with resin and is usually used to make the inner structure of hats. It is molded into shape by wetting and when it’s dry, it retains a self-supporting strength while remaining the translucent quality of mesh. It is an exploration of geometric playfulness with the folded mesh fabric. There are two basic configurations; one is a tower with a single light source, and the other has two lighting sources at the bottom with units bridging between them. Each hexagonal unit is 6" x 6" and 6" deep and the units can be stacked up to 5 units that make the tower 5’-2” (1.57m) high. Overlapping mesh fabric and its moiré effect and black and white units add the sense of playfulness to the object and the lighting

39-40


Combinations of black and white create different configurations. The light bulb is contained in the box at the bottom, and the light is projected upward. When it’s lit, each unit receives the light and makes the translucency of the mesh fabric more apparent..The light also projects out from the center hole of each unit and when it is placed against the wall, it creates dynamic shadow pattern on the adjacent wall.


Attended project in exhibition for an urban landmark to monument Iranian architecture

The goal of this project was the combination of Iranian architecture with contemporary building technology. In order to give Iranian spirit to the design, I used the characteristic of traditional architecture such as courtyard, corridors, natural light, introversion and on the other hand, piloti, free plan, glass from modern architecture. All the moments happen through the circulation of the ramp while leading either to court yard or modern structural space. The building technology, Cable structure and reinforced concrete became some elements to enhance the visual effects of the project along with supporting the weight.

A Creative Place Between Real and Ideal Our place-making initiative aims to recover the city’s diverse cultural entities and connect them with every individual through public engagement processes co-authoring the identity of San Antonio. The [*] Project is a creative place-making experience, both emotional and evocative in which we provide a place where citizens can contribute and participate in activities of the studio to help reclaim the city as a cultural entity.

The Experience Map expands the city to highlight 278 neighborhoods, revealing space for broadened perspectives and experiences of San Antonio

A city’s collective achievements form its culture, and the complexities of today’s great cities demonstrate these accomplishments. However, culture is more than landmarks and stereotypes. It is the condensed vibrancy of the remembered details of your neighborhood street, first school, favorite park, or coffee shop around the corner. We have identified seventeen arteries within San Antonio that define its cultural fabric. We ask you to imagine our city together. Participate by adding your memories to The Memory Map to uncover new perceptions of place and culture. Imagine the most significant places in your memory. Think about the size, form, and intricacies of these spaces and their impact on your idea of place.
