The Art & Life at the Gowanus project is located along the Gowanus River in Brooklyn, New York. Its concept is derived from the cohesive and adhesive properties of similar and dissimilar materials, combined with the grains of a slashed wood piece. The project encompasses an approximately 500.000 sq. ft. program of living and work quarters for artists, exclusive retail spaces for artists and a museum dedicated to the unique history of the Gowanus area and historical battle ground across from the site. The organic flow of the entire complex creates benevolent lighting conditions for artist lofts, as well as distinctive spaces for art exhibitions and gathering to enforce the sense of artist community.

s n e d r a G e n i High L

High Line Gardens was a warm up project for the Urban Design class. This project required a vertical means of circulation from the street level to the High Line, including an elevator, an information/tourist center, a snack bar and ADA compliant restrooms. Bordered by West 17th and West 18th St, and by 10th Ave and the High Line, the site’s triangular shape is featured by the turn of the High Line from the west to the east side of 10th Ave. When viewed in plan view, the curvy gesture of the High Line is supported by a step-like structure. The curvy movement and the rectangular structure led to the concept of hanging gardens, which foresees rectangular platforms securing a gradual descent or ascent in a circular manner.

y r a r b i L p i l S k Pec The Peck Slip Library is a product of the theoretical design class. Located in Lower Manhattan near the South Street Sea Port, the Peck Slip is a unique site. The concept for the library is derived from the connection of old and new media providing information. While information has traditionally been provided in printed version on paper consisting of fibers, the new way to provide information is electronically. That is, information is transmitted through wiring and stored on chips or disks. Applying the concept of the connection of fibers and wiring on the library, it creates a clear separation, yet interweaves public and private spaces within the library.

The Container House was a project in the context of the Design 5 class. Each student was assigned a fictional client. Based on the profession and interest of the client, students had to design a space composed of shipping containers that fulfills the needs of the client. Lot size and amount of containers were restricted.


My Clients represent a young family with one child and another one on the way. She is a musician, who is interested in sculptures, and he is a photographer, who likes biking. The lot size is 25’ x 100’ with a 30’ rear yard setback. A maximum of seven shipping containers can be used. My design included a program of 2 bed rooms, 1 master suite, 1 bath room, 1 half bath room, open kitchen and living room, a small studio, gallery space, a sculpture garden, a playground and a bike garage to meet the family‘s needs. To reflect the interests of my clients, I also incorporated materials such as corten steel and bamboo woods and features such as sculptural bath room amenities and photograph accent walls. To maximize the space within a shipping container, I extended the container’s height from 8’ to 10’ by inserting clear story windows.
