ARCH_Cemetery The project is an underground cemetery sited in Hammondsport, NY. Its design is mainly focused on the assumption of light as a space carving vessel. It deals with notions of space compression and release through a series of ramps that address light travel through space. Media for drawings was Ink on mylar and white lead, while the rockite model was made out of a casted mold of 3D milled foam.

ARCH_Pavillion

“Pavillion” - Section and Elevation Drawings [Ink, white lead on Mylar]

The project initiated as an analytical study of object (a glass bottle), the design of a vessel, and a scaled transformation of such vessel into a human scale pavillion for the object. Images in the middle show the vessel designed for the broken bottle. Drawings on the right show the scale jump from and object vessel into a pavillion embedded in a waterfall.

ARCH_Rome Peace Center Rome, Italy. The project is based on the connection of three clusters through a main exhibition hall spine. The project has a large opening onto its courtyard that visitors may access on their way from the Colosseum on Via Claudia. The other entrances onto this courtyard are much smaller in attempts to compress the space experienced by the visitor as they enter a much larger one. This phenomenom is reminiscent of entrances onto Roman piazzas. The courtyard is shaded by Roman trees that are installed on pools within the courtyard. The multipurpose hall screen can also be used as a way to project announcements for outsiders to see, with the possibility of having outdoor movie screenings during times of warmer climate. The exhibitions spine is glazed to be able to integrate elements of the courtyard into it as part of the “exhibit�.


ARCH_Motherboard Campus designed for Roosevelt Island, NYC. The main objective behind the project was to acheive a flexible design with several possibilities for potential growth and expansion, while meeting the needs of a campus that will be built over time and under changing circumstances. Project was in collaboration with Marcela RamĂ­rez and Felema Yemaneberhan. SITE PLAN


FURNITURE_Chair The project was focused on the design of a continuous surface connected through box joints that are purposefully hidden and revealed. The only material used to produce the chair was sheets of poplar wood.


FURNITURE_Lamp This project was a submission for a Furniture Design class challenge at Cornell University, the “2x4 Challenge�. We were assigned to transform a regular 2x4 into a piece of furniture. Its design was focused on the building of topography through striation and wood lamination.

FASHION+ARCH+VIDEO_The Armor “The Armor” is an abstraction in metal of the female muscular system. It was fabricated as part of a Digital Fabrication Studio taught by Prof. Bernard Cache. The armor was made waterjetting the various sheet metals out of a larger piece sheet metal. The pieces’ corner were folded and then bolted to each other in order to create the armor.

PROCESS DIAGRAM

Each of the parts are cut out of two 23” x 21” pieces of aluminum metal.

Each of the 16 parts are bent on their sides to create their 3-D triangular form and then assembled together using .0125” bolts.

DESIGN_MOUSE Headpieces

MOUSE is a personal project that initiated with the design and construction of four different headpieces to be used in a fashion film I directed. The headpieces are made out of broken mirror, neon paint, metal studs and spikes. See at: titodesigns.com/mouse
