TheMuseum of Tea

The Tea Museum located in Little Tokyo was designed to study the relationship between indoor and outdoor space.

The Tea Museum located in Little Tokyo was designed to study the relationship between indoor and outdoor space.

The Tea Museum located in Little Tokyo was designed to study the relationship between indoor and outdoor space.

Located in Downtown Los Angeles, the Tea Museum is a palate of Japanese culture. The studio exercise started by looking at a solid rectangle and overlaying a threedimensional grid over it. By doing so, voids were subtracted from the solid to create spaces. The bottom floors are designed to be entrance, cafÊ’ and the museum store. The store plays an important role in the program because it is meant to become what attracts people into the museum. The tea house itself is placed in the heart of the museum, visitors catch glimpses of it while moving through the building. It is meant to be the final reward of the museum. After reaching the tea house on the top floor, visitors can then go on the roof top where they can enjoy the views of Downtown Los Angeles.


Beverly Hills, Los Angeles CA

Hill Side House


This studio exercise was meant to build a 1”=1’-0” prototype of a house. The focus was on the structural calculations and the construction of the building. The house is located in Beverley Hills, Los Angeles, where the weather is warm enough to accept a building that has glass all around. Even so, the glass is meant to be triple glazed which helps with the solar radiation. The house has a pool that the user crosses when they enter and leave the building. The windows on top and bottom of the building fully open to make an indoor-outdoor relationship. Also outriggers hold the screen, which is used as a shading device.

Silverlake - Los Angles - CA

Silverlake Housing


The Silver lake Housing Community has retail and parking on the bottom level and two levels of housing on top. The inspiration for the building typology came from Le Corbusier’s, Unite de Habitation, so that the units interlock either in elevation to make for hallways or in plan to make for courtyards. The first level has retail all around to make for an appealing experience for the pedestrian. The second level acts as a community outdoor area where everyone can meet and exchange ideas, for that purpose the community center is located on that level as well. The units either get a courtyard or a double height space where the dining room is located. Those units get a view of the city as well.

The Los Angeles area lacks in outdoor play areas, especially near Korea Town where the site for this project was located. So the main concept of design became the relationship between the undulating ground and the bar like structure. The Elementary school had to become a quiet place for students to study at as well as being an exciting place to play. The bar where the classrooms are sits between two types of playgrounds, one in the interior, which is more intimate and secure and one on the exterior where the playing fields are. The library is the jewel in the project; it consists of two light wells that let light in and a fun outdoor area where the students can enjoy their lunch.


Under the library is the multi-purpose room, which for the school was designed to become a stage for the student’s extra curriculum activities. The studio focused a lot on the lighting of the classrooms and the structural calculations. With the help of BIM, we were able to draw and calculation the structural members, and with the help of Eco-tech the prototype for the classrooms were build to ensure the maximum lighting for each classroom. The construction of the building was also designed to ensure the quality of the building.

Downtown Pomona Sports Center


The Pomona Sports Center was a two-week study of the relationship between two planes and how they let light inside in different times of the day. The idea of anamorphosis intrigued me early in the design process. The idea of teasing a person that walks by and wants to see what goes on in a building. Because of this, the idea of a ramp inside the building came along. People can use their bicycles to get to different parts of the building. And while they are traveling through each part of the building they get a glimpse of each program.


DownTownn, Los Angeles

Spinal Tap


A spine currently exists in downtown los angeles that facilitates movement along the 101. Although this spine is an essential piece of infrastructure that supports the automobile, it creates a strong disconnect from the plane directly above. We saw ample potential in this condition and delved into an intense procedure of extracting urban samples and information, examining these items and then injecting our creativity and innovation into the site. This space is now reinforced by this process and acts as a district that will provide cohesion to the severed urban environment.


The urban spine accommodates various functional and imagined possibilities that will emerge over the course of time. Visual patterns aand gateways will provide access into the space and navigation through the area. Users will place value on this site by interacting with planes, horizontal and vertical, that depict surface continuities or contrasts. These adaptive planes are poised for both promise and mystery in this auspicious location within the middle of downtown los angeles.

Pershing Square Performing Arts Center & Public Peromenade


The Pershing Performing Art Center is an urban beacon for theatre entertainment. Pershing Square has gone through several major overhauls since its inception in 1866; still the park remains inaccessible visually and physically. The Art Center initiates attention to the park by continuing the park through the building by a promenade throughout the building.

The project is driven by a rigid 30 Ft x 30 Ft grid borrowed from the Biltmore Hotel and the Subway Terminal Building to acknowledge the Historic Core of Downtown Los Angeles. This grid also sets the datum line that explains the building’s rules and orders. Masses are extruded in section to shape the front of the house based on different probabilities, which


are then converted into planes. The large and medium auditoriums are then dropped into the site as unforgiving objects. The faรงades resultant from this exercise, hint at where the auditorium is located but do not merely reveal the matrix within. The main circulation of the building is a continuation of 5th Street and Pershing Square Parking Garage, acting as a promenade inviting audience into the building. The Art Center is a path that raps around the building connecting the park to the restaurants, exhibits and auditoriums within, visually and physically. This path is a tertiary space left over from the primary grid for the front of the house and the secondary grid from the large and medium


auditoriums. This promenade widens whenever it is connected to a front of the house and constricts exponentially when it depicts vertical circulation. The journey for the audience starts when they enter the promenade; the path is designed to heighten their enthusiasm and increase the drama.

A striking building design can provoke a shift in a community’s image, setting the tone for a district wide re-branding. Over The Rhine is in need of a new image. Much of the neighborhood appears run-down and unoccupied. One in every four local businesses is government subsidized. There are many public assistance service centers in the neighborhood set-up to serve impoverished or unemployed residents. These service centers are critical to the community, but the buildings themselves provide no sense of hope to people seeking assistance. A building can’t change general economic decline or unemployment, but it can plant the seed for change.

The desired outcome for the new LIVE-MAKEPLAY center is to create a skilled labor force that will feed into a renewed manufacturing industry in Ohio. The program will: 1) offer training in new fabrication technologies to local residents; 2) serve as a catalyst for revitalization of the district; and 3) bring joy to the Over The Rhine community. Property owners and contractors will be given incentive to revitalize dilapidated buildings using this newly skilled workforce. As new opportunities arise, these trained workers will be able to be utilized more expansively. Additional users of the center might include local bbusiness owners and educators (from nearby universities.)


The proposed LIVEMAKE-PLAY Center has three components: fabrication workshops located in the first and second floors, an open air play area on the third floor, and two floors of housing on the top two floors. The new building has been confined to the same footprint of the pre-existing building to preserve as much site as possible. It utilizes the same column grid, but is intersected by an organic grid to drive the form of playful voids in section and plan. In section, the void space becomes the PLAY program; in plan, angled courtyards are carved intothe LIVE units.

The center will be supported by means of vouchers to house students and residents. Local residents seeking new skills that also qualify for public assistance will be given priority to live in the subsidized housing units. Skill-building fabrication workshops at the center will focus on architectural fabrication (using new technologies.) These skills will be used to restore the district’s buildings and infrastructures. They will be allowed to use the facility in exchange for material contribution or by volunteering to educate the center’s tenants. Training may also be funded by companies that have a vested interest in skilled manufacturing laborers.

There are four different unit types in LIVE: s, m, L, and x-L. Large and extra-large units include private interior courtyards, central to unit circulation and program. Because the courtyards are carved under the influence of an arbitrary grid, they are expanded or compressed to suit programmatic needs. This results in size variations offering subtle differences to make each unit unique. Small and medium sized units are void of interior courtyards and designed to meet the minimum standard for individuals and small families’ utilizing vouchers programs. PLAY is what will attract visitors to the site and give residents relief from the hardships of daily life. Along with skills training, it is important to create fun in a learning environment.

The play program will accommodate outdoor events and performances that will promote the center to a wider audience. When these events aren’t going on, the public will be free to use the space at their discretion for bbqs, games, or for fitness. The exterior cladding of the building is a hanging screen system, printed with an organic pattern. The screen is divided into one foot wide vertical modules that are fixed on one end and rotating on the other. The screen’s material is printed carbon fiber – its flexibility allows the panel to open by a twist. The organic pattern is revealed when the screen is closed, but diminishes as each module opens.

EXPERIENCE

The Shadow of the Flower is a foundation aimed at empowering and reinvesting in the youth of the Xuanwu District. The shadow of the flower conjures a variety of images that help with the vision of this project. The shadow represents the underrepresented children trying to overcome discrimination, stress, and displacement, which has forced many of them to live in the shadow of their potential and identity. The flower represents the potential of each child’s expression, exploration, and discovery of their identity through artistic expressions, learned skills, or community building. Our focus is on the shadow, but the intention of the foundation is to encourage the flowering and growth of a diverse and tolerant community through youth empowerment.
