21ST CENTURY AGORA Roosevelt Island

The project started with reading the site as a screen between Manhattan and Queens because the ruins are situated with visibility to its neighboring lands. On the Queens side, there is a large Pepsi-Cola sign that has become a registered landmark and an art installation done by a group of artists and an architect-a digital clock counting down to the end of Trump’s presdiency. I worked with urban screens as a way of creating synapses between space and how interaction within a zone can begin to activate other spaces. The installation utilizes drone and floor sensitive technology to track users within the ruins, allowing an intimate interaction between different user groups and the screens. Thus, the educational value of the experience is personalized.

NASA TRANSIT HAB Mars & Deep Space Sponsered by NASA, this studio allowed us an opprtunity to collaborate with space architects to develop smaller spaces while considering the effects of living in an inhabitable environment, deep space. Originally set to design a habitat on Mars, our group morphed the habitat into a large scale "interior" project with the mindset of urban designing intended for 1,000 occupants to potentially live between planets, while also preparing for the effects of deep space missions. The entire structure utilizes crystals as a method of protection against radiation and as a potential construction material for sustainability of energy.

biophilic tensions Myrtle & Grand Ave Using geometry, light, and reflectivity, the Pratt freshmen dormitory invites all to explore from Grand Ave, but begins to filter movement from public to private spaces for Pratt students. Tight and intense turns change dramatically into open space, and open space pushes into enigmatic space. A social street was developed due to the extreme differences between Myrtle and Grand Ave. Myrtle is highly polluted with people, noise, and light; Grand is quiet and typically used as a transitional street. The dorm consists of two wings that are responsive to each other. They create a central transitional zone that pulls light in, reflectng off the surfaces of the walls to create a canyon of light.
