Arch 505A Fall 2010

charter school

The design of this Charter School was influenced by the concept of creating a link between the school and the community. As a center for the neighborhood, the design relates to the surrounding site. Its form is driven by two main buildings which serve as nodes. These buildings are rotated toward the grid pattern of the site at the intersection between Hoover Street and Adams Boulevard. They consist of classrooms and faculty offices and are connected through an underground level. Representing the link to the community and the nearby park, a physical connection is also created between the two nodes by slanted green roofs. These roofs blend the landscape with the building while creating inviting outdoor gathering spaces for the students, faculty, and community.

The design of this Art Museum was influenced by a promenade of trees that is unique to the site found within Exposition Park. Located across the street from the University of Southern California, the surrounding area consists of museums, sport facilites, and places for recreation for local residents, visitors, and students. However, while the park is full of gathering and activity, the promenade of trees lacks the same livelihood. With the potential to serve as a wonderful promenade full of activity, the design of the Art Museum weaves under, above, and between the trees so to create various indoor and outdoor museum gallery spaces.

An art installation design was first developed as a conceptual mapping study of the site. This installation created a pattern and encouraged activity from people passing by.

Located at the LA River, this Knowledge Center is 1,000,000 sf of mixed use program. A work and live environment, the Knowledge Center also consists of various green spaces along the river for landscape and gathering. This design focuses on the issue of urban planning and revitalizing the LA River to create environmental, social, and economic benefits to the community. The design of the Knowledge Center consists of two buildings each with a work tower for offices and live tower for residences. With the surrounding zoning consisting of work on one side of the river and live on the other, each building creates a bridge that crosses the river to integrate the work and live environment of the site with the work and live towers of the building.

Along the LA River is one side full of work spaces and offices while the other is mostly live spaces and homes. Two buildings along the river fill the 1,000,000 sf of program.

To revitalize the LA River, the design creates green spaces for landscape and gathering. Revitalizing the river will then provide environmental, social, and economic benefits to the community.


live To integrate both existing programs of the surrounding community, this design crosses across the LA River to provide live spaces to the existing work and work spaces to the existing live.

This 2,000 sf High-End Residential apartment is an actual project located in Manhattan, New York. As part of the renovation of the apartment, Construction Documents for a Landmarks Approval Package were developed for the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission. Along with making changes to the Demolition Plan and Construction Plan, a Window Section and Window Schedule were created. Approval was needed in regards to the change of the window facades and window materials.
