WEBSITES 4


The concept of the Illumination Center was originally conceived by the Youth Rescue Initiative. This New Orleans based organization has helped improve the lives of at-risk youth through the development of programs designed to build leadership, confidence, and instill life-long skills. Recognizing the high illiteracy rates amongst at-risk youth, YRI sought to close the gap between this group and the inaccessibility of technology as a learning tool. The strategy is the creation of information centers, strategically placed in high-demand neighborhoods throughout New Orleans. The architectural solution is the utilization of old shipping containers to construct computer centers. The modularity of the containers make the design process especially feasible and scalable. By connecting these centers to the New Orleans Public Library system, these Illumination Centers will each become their own satellite libraries. During my employment at MB Architecture, I was in charge of researching the existing parameters and designing the preliminary concepts of the Illumination Center. SOFTWARE: QGIS, Rhino, Vray, Illustrator, Photoshop

ILLUMINATION CENTER


URBAN CONTEXT

The research was initiated by recognizing the various districts and counties within the city boundaries. The location of each district was of importance due to the highly stringent flood zone levels. Next, the network of Public Libraries were mapped out to allow for the strategic placement of the each Illumination Center in proximity of the main data servers. Lastly, the red dots indicate all the public and private schools in relation to the locations of the Public Library systems. This data helped inform us where these centers should ideally be construct in order to generate the greatest impact. 6

SITE CONTEXT

The first site assigned to us is located in Central City District, located at the lower end of Uptown. By surveying neighboring conditions and identifying encompassing views, we are able to evaluate the orientation and approach of the site.

The site also happens to be located within a mile of Mahalia Jackson Elementary School and Central City Branch Library. The convenient distance to these resources make the site a perfect node, which could eventually branch out to multiple satellite centers.

SITE DESIGN

Due to its French influence, ironwork was prominently featured in New Orleans. The bringing in a historical tool that is so closely tied to the local culture, we can start questioning the dichotomies and synergies of old and new, past and future, antique and contemporary. The same language is carried through the shipping container, where the interior is constructed of modern materials, while the exterior structure is maintained true to its original form.

DESIGN PARAMETERS

The parameters were chosen by splitting the site into two halves: hard and soft. By configuring the grass and concrete tiles around the intricate design, we were able to designate functions to specific areas on the site. Furthermore, the pattern on the ground has been lifted 13’ above ground and serves as a canopy, which will eventually be covered by vegetation in order to provide shade. The transition from hard to soft materials, and the visual progression from the ground to the pattern above will create an intricate, functional and welcoming space for the public. 8

Beaumont Hall is a brutalist building constructed in the 1970s at SUNY Plattsburgh that houses a variety of health and sciences programs, including biology, psychology, and chemistry. Furthermore, it also contains many administrative offices, labs and classrooms. The following project proposes the renovation of Beaumont Hall. I was involved in the project starting from concept phase through design development. The three concepts were developed further in Sketchup and the final scheme was eventually designed in Revit. SOFTWARE: Sketchup, Vray, Photoshop, Revit

THE FOLLOWING PROJECT IS OWNED BY: JMZ Architects and Planners, P.C.

Concept 2 - Nor th and South View

Concept 3 - Nor th and South View

CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

The renderings are based on the following hand sketches drawn by Kristin Schmitt. The concepts each present their own identity to the campus and through the use of contemporary materials, they are able to stand out within their context. The designs were modeled in Sketchup and rendered in Vray for Sketchup.

The transition of the 4th floor of the Cornell Mann library consists of a series of spatial layout concepts, which explore various layouts of offices along the perimeter of the existing skin in order to optimize the natural light and borrowed light throughout the floor slab. The hand sketches were translated into a sketchup model and rendered with natural light. I also modeled various office layouts in order to demonstrate the capabilities of performance enhancing furniture. Lastly, once the final scheme was chosen, the project was designed in Revit.

CORNELL MANN LIBRARY


CONCEPT 1

With the offices lined up against the perimeter, the rest of the floor has to rely on artificial light. Furthermore, the glass walls of the offices would give the faculty minimal privacy because they would be facing the rest of the floor. *drawn by: Karin Kilgore-Green

CONCEPT 2

This concept allows a larger area to utilize borrowed light. By creating a corridor between the offices and the outer wall, the faculty are now able to face the exterior and gain more privacy. *drawn by: Karin Kilgore-Green 16

The Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) Building at Schenectady County Community College was designed for a grant proposal. The majority of the surrounding buildings are clad with red brick, decorated with horizontal bands of light colored brick. The STEM building amplifies that gesture by assigning programmatic functions to brick “boxes� that sit heavy on the ground. The circulation, general classrooms and labs are encased by thick horizontal curtain walls that simulate the expression of the nearby light colored brick. Each of the brick boxes have large, openings with large, dark metal fins to accentuate the verticality. The stair towers are all capped with similar color metal, which resembles the dark color of the brick used on the new School of Music, situated behind the future site of the STEM building. Lastly, the convex metal accent wall emphasizes the structure as it is being observed from the main campus entry. SOFTWARE: Sketchup, Vray, Photoshop

DESIGN CONCEPT

The building conforms to its brickclad surroundings while integrating contemporary materials in order to establish its own modern language. 20


The new technology based campus adjacent to University at Albany was a proposal in response to the vastly growing environmental technology program. Through extensive master planning and site selection studies, JMZ was able to select this site as the most feasible location for the campus addition. The complex is stylistically more corporate than the original Edward Durell Stone buildings due to the programs it will be housing. However, many elements, such as the repetitive column grid, floor to ceiling curtain walls, and wide open corridors have been brought into the new campus. SITE DESIGN:

INTERIOR

The interior uses height as a design tool to bring natural light into the building. The main lobby serves as the central hub that showcases student work.

EXTERIOR

The fountain in the center of the complex brings back the water element of the main campus while breaking up the ellipse and creating a wide boulevard connecting the ETEC complex to the original campus. 22


In the building industry, sustainability has been a much-hyped topic for long. Due to the growing number of buildings, our resources like water, energy and materials have been producing more and more waste over the years. Each new space created brings forth a different environmental challenge. In order to reduce that large impact, the field of sustainable design will tackle the issue at its source. There is no doubt that this is a significant concern that is being addressed by various firms and industries. Bio-analysis is the examination of nature, its models, systems, processes, and elements to emulate or take inspiration from in order to solve human problems. Organisms have been able to survive and evolve for centuries by using natural resources. Therefore, by studying these organisms, we can simulate their behaviors and performances in our buildings in order to use less mechanical energy.

MODULAR POPULATION

Penguins have a heat-exchange blood-flow in their feet and flippers. The warm blood entering these regions flows past cold blood leaving so warming it up in the process and cooling the blood entering at the same time. Blood in these parts is significantly colder than in the rest of the body. By the time the blood re-enters the rest of the body it has been warmed up and so doesn't have so great an effect on the core body temperature. The global scheme allows for a process of heat absorption and generation. Ultimately, it creates a system that feeds off of one another. This distribution factor provides various scaling opportunities within the modular system. Various tiling strategies of intertwining members are created by using materials that transfer heat easily, allowing us to determine the amount of heat generated from the primary to the secondary member.

MODULAR VARIATION

Building components are based on heat exchange. The openings vary in order to allow for various lighting conditions, ventilation, sound and views. The components are distributed along the surface based on attractor points. Each attractor point varies based on the size of openings.

MODULAR COMPOSITION

The system of nodes are all interconnected. The size of the nodes, and number of secondary elements that distribute the energy depend on the need for sunlight in the specific space that the nodes are attached to.


WALL OPENINGS

The wall openings are based on the various modular compositions. The variations continuously wrap around the building envelope to accommodate all needs.

LIGHTING CONDITIONS

The building is mainly exposed to sunlight on the southern and western side. This provides an advantage to collect the most sunlight from these faรงades. On the eastern and northern ends, the building gets the most shade because of the tall apartment buildings that surround it. Therefore, the openings need to be larger here to get as much sunlight as possible. 26

The TEK (Technology + Exhibition + Knowledge) building by BIG proposes to challenge the typical organizational hierarchy present in a mixed use program using a boolean relationship between a spiral tube inscribed within a cube as formal inspiration. The area of the spiral tube is cut from the cube, and the difference is the enclosed envelope of the building. The negative space created by the spiral serves as an exterior vertical plaza, allowing public access and creating aleatory conditions at all elevations of the building, and finally culminating as a park on the top level. The spiral void also serves as circulation for the building's interior program, which is extremely diverse. The programmatic functions are organized not according to elevation, but are instead designed to maximize the spaces remaining in the booleaned cube. The dramatic juxtaposition of public and private, and exterior and interior space is furthered by the facade assembly, the transparency of which blurs the relationship between each element, and heightens awareness of the contrasting conditions. Rather than adhere blindly to formal constraints of symmetry and repetition existing in a true spiral and cube, we propose to modify the spiral tube to create more efficient spaces within the building. Interior program will no longer be subordinate to the formal consequences of the spiral void. Instead, the program and the form of the building will have a symbiotic relationship; the void will be modified according to programmatic needs. SOFTWARE: Rhino, Vray, Microstation, Illustrator, Photoshop http://shima-miabadi.com/VOLUME-VOID-SKIN

VOLUME-VOID-SKIN


ORIGINAL PROPOSAL

The project consolidates the hypothetical contents of an entire city block into the program, proposing to extend the streetscape vertically. Interior program typologies include hotel, retail, office and conference, gallery, showroom and exhibition spaces, and restaurant spaces. Exterior program typologies include public plaza, inclined promenade, amphitheater, and rooftop green space. The TEK building is located in a dense urban context, adjacent to an existing pedestrian street in Taipei, Taiwan. The building negotiates the relationship between three major elements - volume (program) void, (circulation), and skin (enclosure system). The volume of the building is comprised of multiple programs each which demands a different scale, form, and publicity level. The void serves as the main communicating element between disparate programmatic volumes, it exists only in relation to them, and at times it becomes part of them. It adds anticipation and interest to the project, drawing people in and up through the building. It interacts with the programs by creating adjacent spaces that are neither program nor void. These spaces slow the transaction between the two elements and encourage people to simply appreciate and enjoy the space. The faรงade and envelope condition of the building unifies all of the elements and the void within a single volume and provides the project with clarity and coherence. The faรงade moves to the interior of the building, following the void and defining interior and exterior spaces within the building to create some very interesting conditions. 30


URBAN STRATEGY

each program exists seperately and singularly

programs are understood singularly as well as par t of a larger scheme

Consider the building as a vertical extension of the street by consolidating diverse programs within one envelope in order to invite the public into the building.

PROGRAM HIERARCHY non-hierarchical program distribution

The shared walkway unifies the programs as part of a whole and creates an intimate sense of community in the massive building. It is an extension of every program and will be used differently by each. The walkway also introduces the public element and creates the tension found in the anonymous urban settings.


PROPOSED VOLUME

The building negotiates the relationship between these three major elements. The volume of the building is comprised of multiple programs, each which demand a different scale, form, and cladding. The void is the main communicating element between separate volumes, and at times even becomes part of them. It is an idea, a space and concept, but exists only in relation to the program and the skin of the building. The skin of the building must be highly responsive to building program and forms the void but also has an identifiable form of its own and singularly unifies all of the elements. By twisting the volume and creating a continuous walkway, we allow the severe geometry to become responsive to program. The continuous loop extends the streetscape more literally in the building by allowing two connections at street level, and prioritizes views at the top of the void. The building twists, mimicking the movement of the void. Use the notion of a twisted box to retain geometric clarity. The envelope condition is used to unite the void and volumes as one expression. 32

Urban metabolism is the conservation and expansion process of a specific system through the evaluation of energy intake and the waste generated within an environment. The analysis that is derived from this evaluation will demonstrate and suggest methods in which urban sustainability can be approached. Sustainable development is an ever-growing notion that is challenged in Nairobi by rapidly increasing population rates, the illegal construction of infrastructure, and consequently the deterioration of natural resources. By controlling the urban expansion and implementing a modular, responsive eco-tourism network on top of the existing city plan, we can begin to limit and manipulate the transition zone between the built and the natural environment. The scale and application of the network will be a direct response to the energy intake and outtake of specific sites in Nairobi, which in turn will stimulate a more sustainable urban growth model/ system. Through strategic establishment of active nodes based on sensory and experiential parameters that respond to land regeneration rates, the improved eco-tourism network can address issues of conservation and localize the tourism job market. Consequently, the goal is not necessarily to increase the number of tourists, but to maximize the tourist experience, while at the same time minimizing its footprint.

URBAN METABOLISM

The increase in the world population has vastly accelerated over the last century. It took the world population millions of years to reach the first billion, then 123 years to get to the second, 33 years to the third, 14 years to the fourth, 13 years to the fifth billion, 12 years to the sixth billion, and as of today, it is estimated to be a little over seven billion. The thesis explores the urban metabolism of Nairobi, Kenya, which is currently growing at a rate of over 100,000 people per year.

GROWTH

With a population of 3,138,369 people, Nairobi is the largest city in Kenya and the 12th largest African city. The city is growing at a rate of 3.8% annually, which amounts to over 127,000 people per year.

economic development causes a mass migration to the city from surrounding villages and towns

As one of the world's overpopulated cities, its condition creates conflicts between the human population and its environment. The city doesn't have the resources to sustain the growing population, which results in massive pollution as a consequence.

limited jobs due to high density in city core lead to displacement to outer regions of the city

ECONOMY

The economic sector is mainly driven by the service industry, where the majority of the annual revenue is generated from tourism. Most of the activity in Nairobi is established within its core. The disparity in economic levels is evident in this region. This creates a dilemma of rich vs. poor, where the poor are not benefiting from the economic sector. This contrast has also been the cause of the displacement of the indigenous and local communities, where they are being pushed to the outskirts of the city and are forced to settle on open lands.

THREATS OF TOURISM

It is a widely known fact that biological diversity is severely threatened in Kenya, and its protection requires extensive intervention and efficiency. Since the biodiversity crisis directly corresponds to social and political development, it calls the foundation of human organization into question.

One of the biggest safari attractions is the wildebeest migration, where wildebeests migrate from Tanzania to Kenya on a yearly basis. The number and size of wildebeest populations just south of Nairobi National Park declined sharply between the 1970s and the 1990s. Land-use changes and fencing of private lands for domestic livestock ranching now threaten seasonal wildlife movements. Biodiversity is declining due to threats that are either directly or indirectly related to tourism, such as human-wildlife conflicts, human encroachment, over-exploitation of natural resources, pollutants and tourism impacts, which include off-road driving, harassment of wildlife, and destructions of wildlife habitat for construction of facilities.

Proposed Network of Tourism

PROPOSED NETWORK OF TOURISM

The new eco-tourism network proposes to redefine the boundaries by constructing new and improved transport infrastructures. Even though most tourists visit Nairobi primarily for the safari experience, most are unaware of what else the area has to offer, such as cultural values spread out across several settlements. The population of Nairobi can be distributed across the other regions by revitalizing the existing settlements. This procedure will not only provide better opportunities to the locals, but also link the towns to one another by opening up the connecting arteries.

Proposed Integrated Sectors

The scheme also proposes to integrate community, economy and environment. Currently, these sectors are functioning separately, without benefiting from one another. The new network will create a synthesis amongst the three sectors in order to create more efficient settlements. 42


The new eco-tourism industry will counter the current trend of the “tourist experience�. In the current model, tourists usually lodge in static hotel rooms and spend a great deal of their trip traveling back and forth to specific, designated sites assigned for visitors. Today's traveler wants to experience more than just that. The new model proposes a dynamic system of vehicles that move and spread throughout the landscape. These vehicles will serve as hotel suites to the guests, but can also navigate through the national parks without damaging the landscape. Rather than imposing on the wildlife, the "mobile hotel rooms" become part of the landscape and "live" as a species amongst the other organisms.

The Duncan Dunbar Memorial drinking fountain provides the designer an exciting site due to its historic importance to Greenwich Village and the harmonious manner in which it balances human engineering and the natural unpredictability of water. Urban Plinko seeks to coalesce these three key concepts into the material of its intervention. The design takes historic geometry and construction principles as a takeoff point, gathering a swarm of rectilinear "building blocks" around the corner of West 4th and Thompson Street, but then penetrating them with organic voids. The temporal aspect of the memorial fountain is represented through the erosion of the "building blocks", provoked by running water and grit.

URBAN PLINKO


SANDS THROUGH THE [HOUR]GLASS

The glass blocks align along the engineered linearity of Judson Memorial Church's horizontal rustication, but are then penetrated by organic (ie. physics based minimal surfaces) voids through the translucent blocks. Through the integration of engineered volume (:blocks based on historic trial and error) and organic void (:penetrations derived from natural laws), Urban Plinko physically exhibits the dichotomy of the Dunbar Memorial Fountain. The construction process and arrangement of the blocks create a system that does not require additive materials after installation. The shelves act to collect rainwater, which funnels through the calibrated voids into the catch basins/public benches. Once collected, the rainwater is circulated by large gauge, low pressure pumps powered by solar panels. As the water pours over the voids, it collects and carries the powdery grit from the 3D printed hole, catalyzing the act of erosion. Over the course of time, the opaque prints of the void give way to polished translucency, providing a dynamic installation which allows New Yorkers to recognize loss through time. Just as our memory fades with time, so too does Urban Plinko.

The re-framing of the Dunbar Memorial Fountain seeks to reinstate the corner of West 4th and Thompson Streets as the hub of Greenwich Village through the introduction of relaxing benches and an integrated children's game. The game, a type of "urban plinko", plays out by children choosing one of five outlets, then watching as an object is introduced at the origin of the fountain and finds its individual path to one of the five outlets.

“The central function of the discipline of architecture is to provide the intellectual instruments by which ‘architecture’ is valorized. Discourse about these instruments constitutes the primary symbolic capital of the discipline.”

I am a 2012 graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute w/ a Master of Architecture, a 2009 graduate of the Los Angeles Institute of Architecture and Design, and a 2007 graduate of Ithaca College w/ a Bachelor of Arts in Art History with Architecture Concentration. Presently, I work as a graduate architect at JMZ Architects and Planners, P.C. in Glens Falls, NY. My education at the School of Architecture at RPI has afforded me the opportunity to integrate technology with the realm of digital fabrication and practicality. In the recent years, I have been able to apply this knowledge within the professional environment. Having lived in Iran, Japan, The Netherlands and the US has not only enhanced my perspective on the field of architecture, but it has also helped me to apply my wide range of experiences to my designs.
