COLUMBIA BOATHOUSE Location: 555W 218th St Square Footage:30,000 sq.ft Critic: Christian Lynch Course: Comprehensive Design 06 The project for this course is to explore the cultural and architectural issues intrinsic to the program of a university rowing boathouse incorporating community -outreach initiatives for inter-city youth. Following the bloomberg administration’s PlaNYC 2030 and the Greater Green Building Plan to substantially decrease the energy consumption of New York City’s buildings and reduce the reliance on fossil fuels, the design of the boathouse should implement innovative sustainable design strategies including but not limited to increased thermal performance and the generation of on-site renewable energy.

Ground Floor Diagrams Diagram A illustrates the material differences within the walls of the first floor. The dashed lines depict a glass partition while the solid lines depict a metallic perforated partition. The various transitions in glass and metal shifting across the radial axis of the building offer a possibility for material “bleed� across the ground floor. cross section

Diagram B illustrates how people navigate within the landscape through and around the architecture. The striations depict the paths people can traverse in order to weave between the site and building. The lines start from the entrance of the site and branch out in different directions in order to navigate past the boat sheds. The area of overlap where the two paths diverge ironically illustrates a moment of convergence where it creates a possibility of gathering/public seating.

PRATT DORMITORY Location: Grand and Myrtle Ave Square Footage:30,000 sq.ft Critic: Michael Trencher Course: Comprehensive Design 05

The project for this course is to design a dormitory, a graduate housing community of 55 two bedroom apartments . The goal of the class is to help us develop the ability to integrate and synthesize issues of the site, program, structure, material components and assemblies, environmental systems, accessibility, life safety issues and sustainability into comprehensive building design.

POWER HOUSE Location: Gowanus Canal Square Footage:15,000 sq.ft Critic: Adam Elstein Course: Comprehensive Design 07 The project for this course focus on developing scenarios for the adaptive reuse of the B.R.T Powerhouse, a monumental brick building located on the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, NY. This building, sometimes referred to as the Gowanus “Bat cave� once held the massive A/C turbines that powered the Brooklyn trolley car system and later served as an informal home to squatters, graffiti artists, and underground musicians.

The studio began with an initial on-site charrette and symposium with the building owners, outside speakers, and aac participants and faculty . Students are ask to consider the nature of making (both in terms of artistic production and contemporary “make culture�), the nature of viewing ( both in terms of the display of art and the engagement of urban context), and the potential for embedding relationships between making and viewing by means of tectonic interventions in as historically significant structure.

ROCKAWAY BEACH

SURF AWAY CAFE

Location: Far Rockaway Beach 59 th Square Footage: 2,000 sq.ft Critic: Zehra Kuz Course: Comprehensive Design 08 The “Surf Away Cafe” is a program that combines the necessity of the community as well as an amenity for the neighborhood. The people of Far Rockaway are part of a close knit community. However, even with their beaches, it has become difficult to bring people to this part of New York. There has become a need for this community to bring more people to the area. In addition to its community, Far Rockaway has many local charity organizations that do a lot for its people; Rockaway Waterfront Alliance being one of them. Rockaway Waterfront Alliance has recently took part in another organization called “Resurf.” Resurf takes old surf boards, has their kids paint them, then they teach these children how to surf. It is a fun way to help children. With these two needs of the community of Far Rockaway we have decided to create a program that combines two programs that could benefit the community. Having an amenity such as a cafe along the entrance of the boardwalk is convenient for the beach goers and can help attract people to the area. At the same time, Resurf needs a place to hold its surf boards, give lessons and to sell surf equipment to the community. Created a surf shop near the beach also allows it to be in close proximity to the water so people would not have to carry their boards a long way.
