I am a student enrolled at the New Jersey institute of technology, currently in my third of the five year bachelors of architecture program. Throughout my three year experience in the practice, I have learnt the techniques necessary in producing technical drawings as well as how to adequately and professionally use programs such as Adobe Illustrator, photoshop, Revit architecture, Auto cad and Rhino 3D. Apart from my software talents, I have also acquired techniques with the simple paper and pencil which comes to use when working on diagrams. Additional crafting skills in BIM and physical models allow me to excel past my school mates. An internship at your firm would allow me to experience firsthand, realistic problems architects face and I would be able to apply what I learned to my own practice.

This library design attempts to blend the Ironboundâ€™s town scape with its landscape in a way such that the floor plates simply drape over programmatic spaces. In response to the multiple scales of visitor groups, planes are pulled and pushed to manipulate and differentiate between circulation spaces and programmatic spaces. The more open the space, the more comfortable the user is in the space. To emphasize the feel of community, an open plan with little to no full height partitions are used, leaving the visitors in a field of visual connections.

The placement of the school is located near the large body of water, oriented to make use of the natural evaporative cooling. A dense yet open composition of program allows for ease of circulation from program to program. To break away from the conventional treatment of interior and exterior, enclosures blend from solid wall to porous transitional spaces. This allows for the site to be experienced as one big space rather than a series of individual spaces.

The project depicted is located in downtown Newark New Jersey. Situated a few blocks from the Passaic river, one of the busiest in the entire town composed of both of housing and commercial spaces. The housing complex addresses the needs of groups such as musicians and artist of multiple disciplines, currently enrolled at the NJPAC (Performance Arts Center). The lot is treated as one solid mass with voids in areas of gathering. Voids correspond to the number of people occupying the circulation space. The bigger the space, the greater the volume of People occupying the space.

A new Newark As the city of Newark advances and grows, it struggles with keeping its modern aspects in balance with its roots. This “brick city’s” evolution is reflected in the design of the facades of this building. The first step we took was to look at the buildings of the area and abstract their vertically divided shape. Then we conformed the shape to the program and to the site’s wind and sun patterns. Next, the shape was split horizontally, based on the “strips” of the neighboring row houses. The materials were chosen to highlight the difficulties each aspect of Newark has connecting to each other. From the first side, one can only see brick, and as one walks past the facade, the whole view changes to glass. Although the glass and brick connect with the strip and they can both be seen together from the
