Chicago Hometown Map

Chicago, IL Fall 2012 project type: Urban Analyisis of Home Town I studied what made chicago grow within the urban farbric. I came to the conclussion that due to the growth in transportation Chicago was able to flourish Economicaly, and still to this day. The two major types of transportation that allowed this to happen is by water, and railroad. In the anylisis I depicted the process and contributors to these forms of transportation. In addition The centeral loaction of Chicago and Illinois made the city grow into a centeral hub of commerce. People who traveled from coast to coast passed through chicago. Due to these to major factor Chicago became what it is today, and that is one of the most influential cities in the United State of America.

Solares Hill Logia Key West, FL spring 2012 project type: logia & Park

Located on a corner lot in Keywest, Florida, the program calls for a public loggia and garden space. The design uses pure geometries and a classical footprint to tackle the challenging site with tight angles and corners. By placing the structure toward the main corner the intersection is reactivated as a public realm and the garden rests as a semi-public space behind. The pentagonal shape harkens back to the Villa Farnese and the fortified structures of the past. The strong masonry walls create a sanctuary retreat for the public to use and gather. The classical details and embellishments in elevation add a playful language to the strength found within the plan. A low wall wraps the site and helps to frame the approaches toward the new object building placed within a garden in a residential area of the town. FLOOR PLAN

Chapel of Enlightenment Coral Gables, FL Fall 2012

Located by the Church of Little Flower in Coral Gables, Florida, the program calls for a minimal building foot-print. The concept of transformation per-meates the design. A hardscape labyrinth begins the journey for a visitor. Arriving at the main enterance, a vesitbule wel-comes guests. Circulation is restricted to a narrow passage around a wall which then opens on the choir. This main gath-ering space is illuminated from a wall of windows that embrace the guest with warm light.

Gulf Stream Bridge

miami, FL spring 2013 project type: Pedestrian Bridge & urban development The project was to design a bridge that would cross the busy Biscayne Boulevard, between The Freedom Tower Train Station and the American Airlines arena in downtown Miami. the Gulfstream Bridge is the vision of 21st century architecture. Rather than acting as a direct path from the train station to the American Airlines Arena,

the concept addresses a more natural path. Furthermore the bridge provides safety from crossing Biscayne Boulevard, the Gulfstream Bridge is the key monument of this urban redevelopment. In addition the unique reflective properties of the steel does not only mirror the lush florida greenery, but also reflects miami’s beautifull blue sky.

Highline 131

Chelsea, New York fall 2013 project type: Mixed- Use Residential tower What is the future of housing in New York City? The population in New York is going to continue to grow. Yet the issue is that space has become very scarce in terms of new development. Inaddition Our design is oriented toward affordable housing. The way that we were able to achieve this goal was through micro units. Our micro units range in 370 square feet to 450 square feet. In addition to the size of our units in return unit’s prices begin at 1,200 dollars. The lower is section of our building is to the public with an assortment of amenities open to residents and the public. Then the second program type is the tower that is only open to residents. In the tower we have several different floor each one has a different amenity, identified by cutouts along the building.
