g a l á p a g o s 2007aInternationalaDesignaCompetition

The call for the competition was to propose a possible nature-city balanced landscape structure to the growing town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, one of the main cities in the Galápagos Archipelago. It was organized for the XV Quito Biennale [Visible Cities] by the Architects Association of Ecuador.

Design Team: David L. Hays, Julie Sajtar, Shaney Peña-Gómez. Project responsabilities: Concept design and master plan + graphic renderings.

[Porous city] Our approach is to revitalize the town by undoing specific limits, transforming an abstract and resistant urban fabric into something porous to local energy. In our opinion, the town is already overplanned following an outmoded idea of city and nature in opposition. We begin not with forms to be imposed but with forces of people and place. Can one make a new town by undoing what one already has? When you undo the structure of a town, how does the urban context redefine that space? Those requirements place a special premium on public spaces as sites of gathering and interaction. Our proposal reimagines Puerto Baquerizo Moreno as a place where residents and non-residents can experience the unique ecology and economy of the Galapagos without the restrictions encountered within the boundaries of the national park.

binationalapark 2010aGrand Prize in X Caribbean Architecture and Urbanism Biennale

This project can be described as a biodiversity conservation and promotion binational ecological park with a river boardwalk that links all the variables that Landscape Architecture should cover in a proposed public space situation [ecology, socioeconomic dynamics, leisure and recreation, cultural interchange, urban fabric relation].

Design Team: Architect/Landscape architect in charge: Shaney Peña Gómez Top collaborator: Jorge Ventura Ovalles Collaborators: Patricia Cuevas, Mariví Perdomo, Teualdys Díaz Horticulture consultants: Enrique García, Marianna Szabó This is one of the projects developed for a larger project for Ecological Urban Parks in several cities in the Dominican Republic.

on a binational commerce day more than 10,000 people gather in this border area Human Landscape – Urban Landscape It is very important to understand the natural and human fluxes and how one affects the other. In this case the natural landscape is the canvas where the human landscape draws the border crossings and economic exchanges between the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

Constructed Nature The project aims to treat all the water that touches the site through the phytoremediation method, maintaining its natural drainage given by the topography. In this sense, the water management and the horticulture decisions, generates a constructed ecological landscape with a positive impact on the natural and urban environment.

The politics of design Our proposal includes several intangible considerations like the culture-nature relationship. This is why this design not only helps improve the environmental quality of the river’s surroundings and the river itself, but promotes new policies for both cities’ people interaction through commerce and nature conservancy awareness.

borderaobject 2010aHonor Mention in X Caribbean Architecture and Urbanism Biennale Cartography of an Intermediate Space [Work in progress for an exhibition] The process of drawing or tracing lines is to territory what writing is to language. In the territory, the tracing of a line stands as a critical decision about the analysis or construction of a site. The line that today we see as the Haitian-Dominican Border is the representation of the political limit between two countries – Haïti and the Dominican Republic. Nonetheless, this graphic representation is just an aspect of the Haitian-Dominican border-territory – it represents the central point of a whole region whose presence and development are more complex body than [a simple] political symbol. Haïti and the Dominican Republic function as centralized structures whose cultural, economical and political needs establish their respective capitals – Port-au-Prince and Santo Domingo – as the points from where all development expands to the rest of the inland territory. Centralized development points national borders as the furthest places of each country, penalizing the urban growth and economic development of the border region. The main object of our project is to understand the geometry of this border region and its spatial and aesthetics possibilities captured in a moment where we would like to define the moment of crossing from one side to the other.

miches waterfront 2 0 1 1 a Wa t e r f r o n t a L a n d s c a p e a a n d a I n f r a s t r u c t u r e a D e s i g n

Located in Miches-Higuey, on the East of the Dominican Republic, this project aimed to revitalized the town of Miches, which is under pressure due to an already ongoing massive tourist development at the town adjacents’ lands. Since Miches is an empoverished town, ‘all inclusive’ tourist developments often neglects the near-by human settlements. Therefore, the project tackles this issue in order to provide a place of encounter between locals and foreigners. The proposal also sets up the first step into an integral plan for the environmental regeneration of the river and urban beaches.

Design Team: Shaney Peña-Gómez and Re:CUA [Caribbean Urbanism and Architecture] Engineering Consultant: INTEC [Technology Institute of Santo Domingo] Project responsabilities: Concept design, plants materials selection, and construction documents.

b - s i d e s Graphics and photographs here presented are un-solicited proposals that stemmed out from real projects assigments and tasks. There is [usually] a body of work resulting from the analytical and conceptual phase of any given design project that is later put aside once the project needs to be ‘packaged’ as a final product. The idea of calling these images ‘b-sides’ as musicians call the songs that were not officially released as part of an album is precisely to find a function to all this body of work often dismissed after the first stages of a design project. One just need to find the right scale for each of them, some times is an illustration to be framed, a postcard, a piece of furniture or an art installation.

2009aDesignaStudioaataPUCMMaArchitectureaSchool XY exercise’s main objective is to expose students to design processes that could enhance their form making skills and free the results from pre-conceived spatial and volumetric compositions. The creative process starts taking as a conceptual platform something that we all know in terms of form, function and meaning: language. Students chose their first and last letters from their names and analyze them graphically as geometrical objects detached from its linguistic function. The graphic process deconstructs and reconstructs the letters taking into account basic composition principles [i.e. balance, harmony, hierarchy]. Later the graphic is explored in a three-dimensional object, which later has to be placed in a specific urban context with a program resulting from the site analysis.

habitat+landscape

2009aSencond Year Design StudioaataPUCMMaArchitectureaSchool This project’s goal is to build insight into the relevance of the human being and the landscape as essential components of a design project. The project is a habitat, concept that initiated a discussion of the difference between habitat and housing, which resulted in a debate platform that enriched the spatial program. The project’s inhabitant is taken from a Spanish surreal film [El Milagro de P. Tinto] in which are found several characters with different physical and ideological roles in the plot. Each student worked with one of the movie’s characters. The process initiated with a set of drawings re-inventing the story of that character from birth to death. Later these qualities were explored in an artifact that was later translated into a volumetric object. When the object was fully developed a parallel study was made to analyze the world’s biomes and students chose the one that better fit the character/client’s qualities. The student had to design not only the habitat but also the landscape itself based on the geographical qualities investigated.

d o w n t o w n reconstruction

2011aThird Year Design StudioaataPUCMMaArchitectureaSchool All the major universities in the Dominican Republic collaborated with local and/ or international institutions after Haiti’s earthquake. These collaborations focused on emergency shelters design and construction, leaving out of the debate the reconstruction of public spaces or symbolic spaces that collapsed such as the National Palace. For this reason, this studio that is set up to explore design methodologies, focused on the possible reconstruction of the Haitian National Palace. The students had first to investigate about Haitian culture, politics, economics, landscapes and later the city, especially the importance of this space that serves as a cultural container of various cultural institutions and monuments besides the presidential palace, and which functions as the city’s downtown. Students were asked to envision the site as public space not only as a building reconstruction. They were free to either conserve or rethink the whole palace infrastructure. The program was conceived under the idea of a City Museum tat should perform as a cultural catalyst for artistic and social encounters as a mean to become a new place of encounter and national pride.

eva:espacios vivenciales de arte 2012aSencond Year Design StudioaataPUCMMaArchitectureaSchool The EVA Project [as students named it for its initials Espacio Vivencial de ArteLiving Art Space] is set to explore the core theme of this studio: the architectural envelope. It is a short, creative project with few limitations: the floor plan should not exceed 3x3 meters [a domestic scale], the space should provide sitting, shade, and a spot to look at the sky. Mainly it should be an impeccable manufactured piece that promotes a direct interaction with city’s pedestrians. The project is planned to get built on site by May 27 of 2012. The place chosen is the most symbolic public space in Santo Domingo, the Columbus Park, situated in the Historical District adjacent to the ‘new world’ first cathedral. In this sense, the objective is to get the students outdoor and engage them with more complex aspects of contemporary ‘real’ projects such as client-less design, funding, branding, constructive details, the aesthetics of reused materials, and in broader theoretical terms the project’s relationship with a historical context that is also World Heritage.
