Academic Projects 06

The Crazier Vault Using the case study as a disciplinary method, this studio pushed for the deployment of various formal analysis methods as the foundation for new work in attempts to describe architecture as a discursive practice and establish form and its affiliated attributes as a central category of architectural discourse and production.


Hotel Attraction The studio was based on notion of Architecture as a form of an attraction. Af ter studying both covert and overt attractions, natural and man made, a hotel was designed as an architectural spectacle at the termination of the High Line in the Chelsey district of Manhattan.


2012 Gui Competition The first phase was the design of a master plan for a campus in Otaniemi, Finland. Phase two was the design of the MAAD Buuilding (Media, Arts. Architecture and Design).
