GAEP as a canvas

GAEP is a program where arts embraces the homeless families that will be staying at the homeless center. There will be painting, music, dancing and sculpting studios that enhances the homeless to find their song through exploration of the arts. GAEP also gives opportunity for the community to interact with the homeless through the exhibition space which will be open daily to the public and the auditorium which connects various groups. The homeless will find themselves identified as artist and will learn to free themselves from the hunger that exists in every soul whether young or old.

GAEP Homeless center

The main oor of the homeless center will be a free mix space of the arts and the homeless classrooms. The freedom of the steel frame construction makes the space a large open space with chairs and movable walls, making possible the interaction of the different arts and the people.

Greenville SC From our initial site studies on homelessness in Greenville South Carolina, we found a need to provide for a family housing homeless assistance center. The site has a strong potential to connect the surrounding assistance centers and become the focal point that instills the efforts of City of Greenville to serve its’ homeless and improvised citizens.

massing

During the Schematic Design stage of the Project, initial massing studies were done with the site. With North Calhoun Road being the street front where urban activity can occur, the emphasis was placed on giving the street front that any city deserves. Concurrently, many massing studies were accomplished in reference with the existing A.J. Whittenberg Elementary School. With the overhanging structure conversing directly with our site, the consideration of the surrounding architecture was crucial in the form of the homeless center. As the auditorium will be an anchoring program that serves as the connector for the community, the form of the auditorium will be crucial in the overall design of the homeless center.

The main structure is covered by the curved steel girder that provides natural ventilation for the movable facade on the ground level as well to provide shade and optimize use of less energy through its’ shading. The louvers serve to decorate the simple structure and give a fun twist to the Miesian structure that is hidden inside the envelope of the clean wooden louvers.

The structure for the GAEP Homeless Center borrows from Miesian’s clean architectural language of celebration of steel beams and girders. The main structure of the center consists of steel beams and girders that allows for free open space on the ground level for the interaction of homeless and the community; the arts and the people; and the music and painting.

Day 332

Digging up ideas and turning page after page from my memories, I remembered my moment with Tadao Ando’s concrete wall and slowly realize my definition of design. Design is for those of us whom take time to layout the exposed tie holes on a concrete wall. Design is appreciation for remembering every little humble detail that are overlooked in our daily lives. Design is a vision that survives time. -Design Manifesto Board

land to air

The building is designed to remedy the visual and physical disconnections of the existing airport. The transparency of the space enhances the passengers’ experience providing strong visual connections throughout the transition from land side to air side. The large terminal not only physically connects the land side of the airport with the air side, but also physically connects the two concourses which are currently separated. All of the main program spaces are located within the new open space for efďŹ ciency and ease of access. Passengers and visitors can make visual connections to all of the main program spaces from any one point in the building.

visual connection

The airport is the glass box, which visually connects all the functions as you enter the airport, as the transparency of the glass box blurs the boundary from land to sky and celebrates ight.

flight idolized

One of the strengths we noticed that was very beautiful and unique to existing GSP airport was the natural surroundings with the driveway to the airport lined up with the row of trees and the fountain. The fountain is not utilized currently but at the time when the GSP airport was built in the 60s, the nature, the driveway, and the garden was a tool for Greenville to celebrate its’ ideals of ight.

mimicking the natural surrounding Building structure consists of a regular grid of columns that support a grid of Fink trusses. The columns are a composite of square steel tube members and wood. The Fink trusses are also a composite of glue laminated wood chord and vertical web members and steel diagonal web members. Steel cross bracing occurs on the roof, as well as in key locations along the façade. Main material for the primary structure of wood was used to create a softer environment for the passengers and visitors as the airport is imitating its’ natural surrounding.


Day 220

Last Day in Genoa and farewell to the steps that I took so many times to the villa on the top. So many great masterpieces visited and learned in Europe as my study abroad experience will be forever indelible in my memory as I grew and matured through traveling as a student of architecture.

the void between

Piazza Campetto Apt. Complex is a direct derivative of the characteristics of Genoa and its’ style. Genoa’s colorful facades, narrow alleyways, and the unknown mystery it imparts on its’ visitors has created the shift, break, and the void in our project which serves as the main concept. The existing form of our site is carved out to make “little Genoa” within the bigger urban context, creating an icon for the city and defining what it represents.

Day 114

On my first weekend trip away from Genoa, I visited the city of Marseille where Le Corbusier and Baguettes decorated the city. There was also the rooftops of Marseille that caught my attention in which my ink left its’ mark on my sketch book.

urban planning

By building civic connections that strengthen the public realm, this project can be a generator for cohesive urban development in North Charleston. Collaborative urban planning master plan sketches, drawings, perspectives, and renderings leading up to the final client review on a new intermodal facility for the City of North Charleston.

Charleston SC Methodologies that were applied during the initial phase of the project were background research, including North Charleston orientation, maps, site visit, and the initial client meeting. Secondly, issues of the site, program, and North Charleston’s civic identity were investigated as we produced a set of principles that will eventually guide our project until the ďŹ nal Client meeting with the City of Charleston.

Final design proposals for the site; perspectives and site plans in color markers. These strategies aim to make the intermodal center into a green urban area for the City of North Charleston.


Design Principles

P1. Use density of development as well as diversity of scale and function to create a vibrant experience

P2. Promote the use of public transportation through convenient physical access and clear visual connections

Day 73

The wooden pencil/marker case on the left was my final project in the woodworking class during my semester in Charleston. My box was a simple functional pencil/marker case with my initials on the top. I learned the importance of construction as Peter Zumthor quotes, “I believe that the real core of all architectural work lies in the act of construction.� Thinking Architecture.

Future is On The Table

collaboration thru arts

The Future is on the Table is the culmination of a five-year community art collaboration that began in 2003 when Gallimard and Mauclet sent 56 handmade three-legged stools as gifts to artists around the world. Its’ goal is to create an open dialogue around the metaphorical table referenced by the title of the project. This is a table around which the local community, as part of the global community, can gather to share ideas, discuss problems, and contemplate the future of our world. The purpose of The Future is on the Table is to invite people to this table, to use art as a means to create community dialogue, encourage activism and carry the energy of the project to the future.

The Future is On the Table Flier

Gallimard and Mauclet invited the CAC.C to be part of their exhibition at the City Gallery when they realized an architectural limitation in the space. Afraid that visitors entering at ground level would not be drawn up and into the works on the second floor, they asked that the CAC.C design and build a “visual bridge” moving diagonally and vertically through the main two-story space. On further reflection, they asked that we take melting water from an installation on the upper level and, moving it down the diagonal structure, deposit it on a collector on the main floor that, after hours, can be used to restock the ice maker.

design production installation presentation

The group of 14 students all with different background collaborated to make this art installation possible. With the theme that not all people in the world gets clean water, we had the phrase, “For 1/4 people the glass is never full.” We were each divided into three groups, the screw group, transporter group, and the bottom piece group. I took part in the last group--the bottom piece group.

Day 1

I would like to end my portfolio remembering the day I moved into the apartment in Charleston SC at the beginning of my graduate school. I vividly remember parking my car in the driveway, under the humid weather and feeling good to be moving into one of the Charlestonian townhouses painted in pink. Everything was new and different and I felt like a girl learning to bike for the first time. Now I am a month away from graduation and would like to make this another beginning into the professional world, as I start again as a new person entering the work force. Knowing that my Day 1 will also begin for the firm I will be working and creating architecture.
