Mexico City is vulnerable to earthquakes. More than 21 million people live in the Mexico City metro region. Nearly 90% of citizens see the state and federal government as corrupt, according to the National Institute of Statistics and Geography.

City relative to Texcoco Basin

Basin within watershed and districts

Airport/Neza as critical nexus

The former Lake Texcoco has been drained in favor for land, the aquifer is depleting as it provides water to the city and causing settling. Without proper collection and treatment, in addition to density in the metro area, water service are difficult. Concurrently, flooding often occurs to low elevation areas like Neza York.

Messy problems converge at the city boundary in the Benito Juarez airport & the borough of Neza York. Neza’s population is now around 18,000 inhabitants per square kilometer, with 1.1 million people living in 63 square kilometers. Less compressible deep soil deposits lie beneath the soft lacustrine soils, near 50 meters below the ground surface. In places, Neza York is settling at a rate of 1 ft per year, equating to 15 meters over 50 years.

A e r o e s p i n a | Redefining Mexico City's Gateway BE 405 | McKinley Futures Studio | Rob Hutchison and Jeff Hou | Spring 2018 Collaborated with Laura Durgerian and Mackinley Erickson

Built in the footprint of former Lake Texcoco, Mexico City's Gateway - Benito Juarez Airport - sinks as the city's aquifer is drained to support over 20 million inhabitants. With the airport vacated for firmer ground, we look to the byproducts of dense humanity - ingenuity, agency, and energy - to catalyze a vibrant mixed-life system. Densifying within existing runways, and using the cells between as public lands and test plots, we layer research, education, commerce, transit, recreation, housing, water collection, public life and shared resources to grow a flexible, living and learning organism.

SETTLING | a p o t e n t i a l c a t a l y s t SETTLING, defined: 2070




SETTLING as making home: We nurture feelings of certainty and comfort by making housing a right. In doing so, we shape a future where the roof is a public good, and regardless of individual means, all can feel safe, comfortable and certain within the shelter of their homes and the company of their neighbors.


SETTLING as reclaiming cultural heritage & pride post-colonization: We revive Neza’s history of water, art and scholarship to empower communities to overcome a history of conquest and oppression.


SETTLING as sinking: We engage and accept the sectional, sinking identity of Neza, reframing it instead as the emergence of a new volume of vertical space.




Umbrella Mechanism

The Roof as a Public Good Densified runways create constructed ridgelines from which people can overlook their city. A responsive roof collects water and solar energy. Transit connsects people. Agriculture nourishes.

The Ground as Mixed-Life Public Space Open ground floors leave space for commerce, gathering and activity. In addition to providing production and habitat, test plots offer large catchment areas that can fill up with heavy rains.


Conceptual Unfolding

Scaffolding study models | 1:1250

The Runway as a Living Spine Scaffolding affords gradual, demand-based growth and infill. Unfolding umbrella piles collect, treat, store and infiltrate water, while enabling vertical connections between runway and test plot. A network of smart roofs harnesses energy to power suspended streetcar transit.

Located in a collective gallery compound shared by five artists, this live/work gallery is inspired by the selected photo - Yokosuka by Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama. The dual live/work space translates the contrasting concrete abstraction of the photo and its incidental quality into a photography studio, an exhibition gallery and a photographer’s residence. Compound design collaborated with Pamela Aymar, Anna Beth Gunderson, Alex Ianchenko and Amber Kinman

Sheet forming

In the process of sheet forming, the mould enter the vat of water and beaten paper pulp, pickup and cast off repeatedly before couching. The water rising up and down during the pickup movement creates tension, a force that folds and stretch. As the water flows as a whole, it also breaks away abruptly. The paper mill resembles the force with a meandering flow; folding, stretching and breaking while light carves out concurrently.

An experience of movement and pause along the beach bluff in Seattle’s Discovery Park, this nature retreat blends in with the elongated site. Splitting into four structures based on their functionalities, the retreat spreads across laterally and connects through a path that matches with the landscape. Like the pebbles on the beach, each building has a resemblance on the exterior, while the internal structures are distinct from one another.

The Testaccio neighborhood is a typical residential area in Rome. Located at the southern part of the city, the regular grid pattern of the streets and buildings surrounds an open plaza. The palazzo pubblico is a place celebrating the people and the neighborhood. With minimal disturbance to the existing condition, the palazzo is carved underground for the Salon Grande - the main room for public - with the historic terracotta amphorae pieces from Monte Testaccio stacked along for retaining purpose.

Hong Kong Pixel Home Competition Spring 2017 Beginning with a 5m x 19m parcel in the

Sham Shui Po district, this project proposed

a nine-story compact living complex in a

typical high density residential area in Hong

Kong. While the commercial focused street in the region creates a bustling cityscape, the stacked and condensed residential units lack the lively activity. The proposal pulls social interaction from the streets into the

residential with three public spaces. Living

rooms of individual units are minimalized into an open plan to drive people to utilized

the shared public space and generate interactions within the community.

Collaborated with Yuchen Qiu, Ruisheng Yang, and Gechang Xu

Existing Pattern

Pull up for daylight

Carved out for dynamic flow

Based on the existing slot, the proposed design pulled up and carved out spaces to

respond to the environment and creates dynamic volume.

The proposed design extrudes the existing building block vertically to increase ventilation and daylight. The building is divided into street-facing half for studio units and alley-facing half for larger units, connected by vertically extending circulation core with a skinny lightwell. Three blocks are carved out of the box to create voids for public activity.


Art 351 | Furniture Design | Jim Nicholls | Summer 2017 The two pieces of furniture are both designed for multifunctional uses, fabricated with glue fastening only.

This set of chairs explores the intersecting element within the limitation in dimension and gluing surfaces. Individual pieces of 4"x1 1/4" are cut to form slabs or assembled as legs. Smaller parts are placed below as support in between and function as storage.

Composed with typical 2x4 lumber, this piece is a study on wood end and edge grain. It uses the edge as the main gluing surface, while the end grains as a directional pattern that interacts with light. The piece functions as a two-person seat with storage below, and with a 90 degree turn, it is a high chair single seat with an extended surface top.
