Project:

Deconstructivist Study Carrel University of Hartford November, 2010 This project was an architecturally inspired study carrel for children of ages 4-10. The purpose was to provide a children's desk that would provide an interesting study area that would retain their interest and allow them to focus on the task at hand Deconstructivism is an architectural style that developed in the 1980’s. This style is characterized by the fragmentation of planes, the distortion and dislocation of architectural elements such as structure and envelope by using non-rectilinear shapes The resultant architecture conveys the sense of unpredictability and controlled chaos. The study carrel was inspired by Liebskind's Denver Art Museum. The fundamental design element was the right triangle arranged in overlapping planes to create the object.

Project:

Yale University - 51 Hillhouse Renovation New Haven, CT 06511 December , 2008 Title: Project Architect Firm: Dean Sakamoto Architects Design Team: Structural Consultants: Spiegel Zamecnik & Shah, Inc. (New Haven,CT) M.E.P./Fire Protection Consultants: KW Engineering (Branford, CT), Hofbauer & Associates (Bridgeport, CT) Code Consultant: Philip Sherman, P.E. (Elkins, NH) The Renovation of the Department of Anthropology's historic Hillhouse Avenue facility was comprehensive and complex. Although the exterior was nearly unaltered, the interior was treated with respect and sensitivity. Located next to the University President's house on Yale's picturesque street, this rich and robust Italianate-Victorian mansion (1862) whose design is attributed to noted Antebellum-era architect Henry Austin, was a near complete reconstruction of its foundation, superstructure and interior architecture. The newly-designed interir now holds a world-class archaeomagnetic laboratory, teaching labs, a seminar room, and faculty offices. New work in this four-story structure also included new HVAC, electrical, lighting, fire protection systems, and renewed archtiectural finishes with special attention to preserved historical ornament, millwork, and furnishing inside.
