Life/Lab Urbanism Proposal for entrepreneurial economies in Seoul’s Urban Landscape When visiting the Yeongdeungpo District it is hard to miss the fact that it’s urban landscape behaves in very different ways from that of the modernist western city. This ad hoc form of urbanism makes a very peculiar use of its connection to the street. The architectural design that is to follow will continue this tradition by not only accepting, but exaggerating this condition of the broken and articulated urban edge. By increasing the surface area of that edge we allow this modus operandi to continue to flourish, empowering the small and personal over the big and indifferent. What results then is a hyperarticulated urban experience where your contact with space is both nonlinear and indeterminate.

The creation of a new block type

Challenging the idea of the museum as an isolated white box, ART HEIM proposes to maximize the integration of the Guggenheim with the city of Helsinki. It enables a dual exchange: Helsinki as home, or “heim”, for major exhibitions of international art, and the museum infrastructure as a “heim” for the local artistic scene of Helsinki.

Palace Hotel

Public Datum Rendering Interior Gallery Rendering

The exchange performs at multiple levels: the museum enhances urbanity, enabling and intensifying public events and activities through a major covered outdoor public space. It facilitates education in the arts by establishing new relationships among spaces for local art institutions, international exhibitions and curatorial practices. Various spatial strategies such as transparency, accessibility and transference across three levels of activity blends the Art Heim Museum into the city and vice versa.

Responsive Pressures High-rise Office in Manhattan for Environmental Agencies.

Exterior rendering of tower.

The particular challenge embedded within the design process was to develop a formal strategy that could accommodate and respond to environmental pressures that surround a high rise office building in Manhattan. First tackled through biomimicry – a system of folded concrete walls and slanted planes was established to open and compress the apertures of the building in response to its immediate context. Between the folded concrete structure, Embedded Objects were introduced to mitigate and negotiate the specific requisites for natural ventilation, structural stability and day lighting. These objects were then calibrated using a series of environmental simulations that resulted in an informed and iterative process with human comfort as a specific design goal. These objects that exist within the fold are also responsible to engage the site programmatically by providing auditorium spaces, means of egress and meeting areas that maximize the views light and wind for the rest of the building.

The Lux of Micro New Tendencies in Micro Housing for Millenials According to the Pew Research Center Millenials are the most educated generation in America. Nevertheless they are faced with unprecedented financial burdens that hinder their ability to obtain luxuries. It is in this disconnect between millennial desire and their economic reality that a new housing paradigm is born. In this project the particular housing tendencies of the emergent millennial generation in Philadelphia are catered though an interlocked web of programmatic “Essentials” and “Luxuries”. The symbiotic relationship between these two dichotomies creates an environment of program sharing whose ultimate goal is to give the user access to amenities that under a normative, individualistic housing model, would be impossible. 13th Street Exterior View

Through the establishment of elevated pathways that are organized along a Multi-functional Space Frame we can transform the multiple ground datums so as to make them act as generators of interest and activity. This activated datum, when viewed from the vantage point up above, can provide a meaningful collaborative experience in which both the experimental products produced by the Industry and the Findings done by the Academia can be in a constant state of exposure and dialogue, within themselves and towards the immediate community.

ULI Hines Competition Revitalizing Urban Plan for New Orleans

Bird’s eye view of Masterplan

As part of the Urban Land Institute’s annual competition this proposal seeks to provide a coherent masterplan for the Lafitte Greenway sector in New Orleans. “Stitches” - Programatic amenities that respond to the particular necessities of a neighborhood. They connect together the disrupted fabrics and repurpose unused infrastructure throughout the site. “Water Management” - The landscape brings the water management infrastructure to the public realm. It is responsible for creating a functional sense of place while at the same time reshaping the collective memory of water in New Orleans. “Scalar Densities” - The particular densities of structures in and outside the Greenway are determined by the programmatic needs of the region and the surrounding urban context in each case. “Modular Development” - Due to the careful specificity of program placed throughout the Greenway, the site can be developed simultaneously in modular segments while not compromising its overall function.

Figure Generation & Reactive Curves

Studio Project

Curved Perception Lessons from Fluid Dynamics on Space Following the nature of the objects within the site this project seeks to analyze and restructure the same logics found within the interior of the 30th Street Station in order to create a new spatial experience that defies the Cartesian ruling of the site. A new generation of objects is placed within the space. The organizational logics applied to the placing of these new objects, is derived from the analysis of fluid dynamics studies inside 30th Street Station. The lines and curves generated by the fluid dynamics are then passed on to an architectural language through the curve folding process, as a way of manifesting the emergence of all the logics into an established geometrical form for the project.

E.D.G.E. Edge Dynamics in Growth Experiments Understanding growth as a computational process, this project seeks to explore the fundamental relationship between procedural transformations and their resulting geometry. A dynamic system is modeled as a network of springs and nodes that serves to activate the morphology of the test subjects throughout time. As our digital matter flexes and contorts, we introduce new detail at the naked edges that is responsible to cause ripple and distortions in a nonlinear fashion. As our system “grows� with time changes, it gets locked into place as new geometry layers upon itself, creating a continuously articulated object. Careful attention was placed for the initial conditions of growth as well as the parameters that determine the rate of growth as a process. 4D Deformed Sphere

Excess & Edit Mining Generative Systems for Value

Recursive Tree Landscape

Generative systems can be understood as endeavors that place their epistemological value in method and process as opposed to a direct design approach. Instruction rules over outcome and what is produced is considered but a shadow created by the underlying processes that churn at the problem at hand. As such, the predominant mode of thinking in the field is one that must program solutions in a rather holistic manner. Generative design is often so concerned with solving a particular task that it forgets the extent to which our tools can act as agents of exploration. In this project I propose a different methodology towards computational process, one that is coded for excess. In these experiments the goal is to generate a field with a rich enough resolution, so as to grant us the ability to mine it. To edit is to distill from a whole and our eye is has an evolutionary handicap on the rudimentary scripts we make. Hence, we can envision a methodology that relies on generative systems to create vast landscapes of solutions that we, as designers in the end, crop, edit and mine.

Cairo Pattern Pavilion Temporary Pavilion for Deutche Bank, London. The project essentially deals with the panelization of volumes through the intricacies of the cairo tiling pattern. The cell-like structure is conceived as ideal for the structural modules that will then hold the weaved threads. The threads, through their patterning, compose the second system. The Cairo Tiling is distinguished for its specific pattern of pentagons that when assembled in pairs of four generate a hexagonal perimeter. Another way of understanding the Cairo pattern is as a voronoi structure/pattern that emerges through a particular placement of center points.

Negotiable Spaces Applied Learning Algorithms The goal of this thesis is to deal with the representation of a form of crowdsourced architecture. One that through means of actuators is able to change its geometry and operation based on feedback from a collection of users and thus raises the question of how to design such multi faceted spaces. Through shifts in geometry, can architecture be negotiated in real time? How do we manage multiple interests in one urban site? What are the computational methods needed to regulate and operate an architecture that is always in motion? We hypothesize that if architecture were to instill within its spatial medium the intelligence to interpret user-generated data it could be able to produce spatial repercussions in real time that are synchronous with our collective metrics of value.
