NEWPORT NAUTICS & MARINE CENTER A DEVELOPMENT OF THE BALBOA FUN ZONE NEWPORT BEACH, CA

SHOPPING & OUTDOOR SEATING


DATA

MONUMENTAL ARCHITECTURE Newport Beach’s historical Balboa Village, located on the base of the Balboa Pier, is a monument to the heart of the community. It is a popular day and night spot for locals and tourists alike. There are shops and cafes lining Balboa Blvd. and both the beach and bay side boardwalks. The Fun Zone is a bay front development that offers a nautical museum, souvenir boutiques, local dining, and fun attractions, such as a ferris wheel, merry-go-round, and an arcade. The guiding ideas behind the conditions of the project are capturing the essence of the bay front site and directing the flow of pedestrian traffic through a series of spaces leading up to the spectacular views. Paths, dissecting through the site on different levels, offer different amenities from serene and quiet landscapes to a strip of retail shops all leading to a viewing deck. The history of a glorious marine culture is displayed to the public through the creation of a nautical and marine science museum creating an opportunity for a hands-on research facility.

SPACE EXPLORATION SELF-SUSTAINABLE RESEARCH FACILITY SHORT TERM DEPLOYMENT SSRP-LTD Architecture is not static; it mutates and evolves with time and use. This is a parametric design study utilizing the capabilities of digital modeling with the production of a short film showing the combination of design and digital media. In the future, man’s capabilities to travel the universe have evolved and space research programs pursue the unknown with no boundaries. SSRP-LTD is a fully self-sustained research pod that can be deployed in various places and conditions to conduct experiments and data collection. It serves as housing and research facilities to a group of maximum four scientists for up to six months.

DIGITAL MODELING

MADE POSSIBLE

Arguably, one of the great advantages of digital modeling is the capacity provided for visualizing and testing a range of parameters and alternative design solutions - the study of architecture in four dimensions. Given the added dimensions of information space and digital fabrication technologies, the planning, design and implementation of flexible, custom and on-demand architecture may soon be considered financially feasible and practical. Designers will seek flexible and dynamic solutions that anticipate and accommodate the chaos of human activity. The objects that engulf our spaces no longer must be static. There are a number of methods of “collapse� that can be explored and implemented when designing components of our environment. Each program component is designed with a capacity for real-time flexibility and a variety of configurations- this is accommodated within an animation rig.

POMONA METROLINK TRAIN STATION PROPOSAL FOR A PUBLIC TRANSIT EXPANSION METROLINK RIVERSIDE LINE POMONA, CALIFORNIA

arrive

The California based Metrolink is a commuter rail system that links Orange County with surrounding areas including Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino. The Riverside “Blue” Line connects Downtown Riverside and the City of Pomona to the historic LA Union Station.

converge

The City of Pomona has a rich past and exciting future. Pomona is a city with a bright vision for its future, and is dedicated to the quality of life for a diverse community. The Pomona Metrolink Station will provide a transit hub connecting The California Polytechnic University, Pomona and The Los Angeles Stadium, currently under construction, to the greater LA region.

OMUTA CENTER FOR LEARNING, JAPAN A COMMUNITY HUB

THE PROBLEM

Omuta is an old industrial city located in the Fukuoka Prefecture of Japan. For the majority of its past in the modern age, Omuta was a coal mining town. However, due to the switch from coal to electricity and the recent closure of the mines, industry has focused elsewhere. Many people were left in poverty and the local businesses left town.

To maintain living conditions, the government built entire communities of low-income housing blocks. They failed to create public community centers and outdoor spaces.

Although the population declined, thanks to the coal mining, chemical industry has developed and sustains the remaining residents. Currently, there is movement in the environmental recycling industry, centered on the generation of electricity from waste products. Also, commercial fishing continues out of the port, Kurosaki.

THE SOLUTION A multifunctional elementary school that provides the community with a library, meeting hall, local produce market, and a variety of outdoor activities. The core of the building serves as the library, surrounded by a covered courtyard and two wings of classrooms. It provides shelter from the elements and a space to be used for gatherings and small concerts. The contemporary look is a focal point to the community providing a new direction for the future.

CATWALK RESIDENCE CONTEMPORARY ART The Catwalk Residence is a 600 sq ft vacational residence designed for a fashion model in the hills of Topanga Canyon, California. The open floor plan extends down the hillside like a runway in a fashion show. It is shielded by a polymer skin and structural carbonfiber ribs The structure is elevated from the hill to minimize the impact on the surrounding natural elements and provide security from wild animals. The bottom of the dwelling opens up to spectacular views of the Southern California landscape. ENTRY

CAHUENGA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LOS ANGELES, CA

SITE

The state of California is currently educating one 1 of every 8 students in America. Los Angeles’ Koreatown is a densly populated area with many aging schools. The district currently has hundreds of students being bused to schools in other parts of the city. There is therefore a need and opportunity to design a new typology of school grounds.

3rd street

2nd street

The Cahuenga Elementary School #1 will help relieve overcrowding in the district. Once complete, this K-5 school will accomodate 800 students on a traditional calendar and 1,125 on a year-round calendar.

TRANSPARENT LIVING A BLANK CANVAS LOS ANGELES, CA Transparent Living is an affordable housing complex for a diverse range of residents with families. The project site is on Glendale Blvd, between Silver Lake Blvd. and Brier Ave. in the community of Silver Lake. My design includes 24 units, 8 detatched work studios, underground parking, a recreation center with basketball courts, and a common outdoor green space.

CONCEPT

PATH TO UNIT

The simple white building is complemented with a colorful facade. The idea behind the facade is that each resident has the ability to paste a translucent image on their unit making it a symbol of identity. The residents are capable of making their units unique and personal while conforming to a uniform block.
