MEXICO 2026 ARCH 481 Architectural Thesis 2013 Mexico City, Mexico

The project proposes a Mexican bid for the FIFA 2026 World Cup. Centered around the proposal is a new stadium in Mexico City, within Chapultepec, an urban park in the west of the city. The goal was to explore the building typology, with the intent of understanding how a stadium can become a more significant and valuable building within its context. The intention is for it to become a social hub, capable of maintaining a high level of activity independent of large events and attempt to consolidate the interaction between the urban context and the park. Holistically, the design attempts to become a manifestation of the Mexican Culture, ultimately the stadium adopting the role of a Mexican cultural center.

Located in western Mexico City, Chapultepec is the largest urban park in the western hemisphere. It is a vital site within the city, not only for its natural beauty situated within the dense urban fabric of the city, but also for its culture, history, tourism, and recreation. Although Chapultepec is located in the western boundary of the city, it can still be considered part of the core of the activity hubs within the city. The selection of such a culturally significant site, is an attempt to make a statement of the culture, reflecting the importance soccer has within the country.

The facade is composed of a perforated zinc panel system. The imagery is derived using abstracted iconic images from the Mexican Culture. The facade also has the ability to respond to different event types and reflect real time updates through the use of color.

media | TORINO ARCH 451 Fall 2011 Torino, Italy

This project, designed while studying in Torino, Italy, consisted of redeveloping a piazza and an adjacent a building renovation. Given the context, the building to be renovated had a medieval facade, which was to remain intact. The program of the renovation was a mediateque, consisting of cultural exhibits, a library, digital collections, and an overall cultural center. Combined with residential and commercial spaces, this building intended to revitalize life in the piazza. Based on the analysis of the function of the typical Italian piazza, where the most public spaces are found on the ground floor, the concept began to evolve. Instead of maintaining public spaces solely on the ground floor, the new mediateque would allow an expansion of the public program vertically up the building.

MOTT GYM ARCH 353 Spring 2011 Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo

Mott gym, a symbol of Cal Poly Athletics, is currently ill suited for its function and must be revitalized. The facility fails to portray and reflect the weight of importance it actually carries within the context of the athletic department and the campus. Mott Gym is an icon of Cal Poly and must be rejuvenated in order to improve the image of the school. We pick up the project with the intent of reinvigorating the building and bringing it to the level that it needs to be for a school of Cal Poly’s importance. Our problem was to redesign Mott Gym and provide a contemporary building to be completed in three phases. It must become an adequate and exciting facility that becomes a source of pride and school spirit.

MONTAÑA DE ORO CATHOLIC CENTER ARCH 352 Winter 2011 Montaña de Oro, CA

1st floor

38

This Catholic center is located in Montaña de Oro, a site that inspires, awes, and humbles. The precise moment in time when the waves and the earth become one is the source of inspiration for this project. Water is an important element in the Catholic Church as it is seen as means of cleansing the soul. Water is translated as a gateway into the religion through the form of baptism. Just as the Church sees God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit as one, and similar to how water, steam, and ice are components of the same substance, the site becomes the place where land, sky, and sea become one. The project is thus inspired from the site and shaped by these factors. The form of the project is derived and inspired by ripples of water. Water was a guiding principle in the design, and it becomes evident in the way the form is articulated.

SF AFFORDABLE HOUSING ARCH 453 The project involved an affordable Spring 2012 housing design on the corner of Polk San Francisco, CA and Broadway in San Francisco. The site is located in a very unique context. Literally sitting on the border of Russian Hill and Nob Hill, the corner of Polk and Broadway is witness to two different realities. Polk is a heavy commercial zone, extending from Civic Center to the Marina. Polk becomes a very active, dynamic street that promotes a pedestrian culture. On the other hand, Broadway is the antithesis. Broadway is a fast paced street, crossing nearly the entire city. Broadway zooms out of the tunnel, being heavily trafficked and becomes a passive street. The juxtaposition of the passive, static nature of Broadway along with the active and dynamic nature of Polk, translates into an interesting and complex location in the urban fabric. *Project in Collaboration with Jacob Buchenauer

Conceptually, the building form was derived from mapping a pattern as a surface. These initial maps were derived based on responses to the site, such as setback requirements and views.
