April 08, 2018 Brooklyn Bridge, NY

I have travelled, worked and lived in many different countries. My quarter-century voyage has given me experiences that I cherish and carry wherever I go. I have worked on multiple buildings, urban landscapes and waterfront projects. Each time, I emphasise on making interventions at the existing problems through design solutions. Through my knowledge, work experience and skills, I aim to design spaces that could change the perspective of the void space that one inhabits.

00 THESIS Al Khor, Qatar Thesis project submitted to the Architecture Department in Aligarh Muslim University (INDIA) for graduation. Qatar being a developing nation in the Middle East, has potential to revive the cultural heritage among it’s major population of the expatriates. A Cultural Centre has been proposed to be developed on this site by the Ministry of Interiors. Strategically located on the waterfront in proximity to the residential areas, this site provides opportunities to propose activities to connect and promote community engagement through culture.

The Cultural Center is placed in the center of the site with gallery spaces and auditorium. Each of the Education blocks flank the Cultural Center. The form of this structure is dynamic and derived from the waves. The octagonal halves help create segregated zones. The Mosque is designed with the concept of bio-morphism. The shell form is the outer structural membrane. Multiple folds of the shell generated cuts to make passageways providing access and letting light in.

Bringing the lost Olmsteadian linear-park Humboldt Park back by introducing planters on the walkways Combining the layers of study and making the expressway more pedestrian friendly 25


Scajaquada Expressway at the Agassiz Circle The idea is to restitch the two sides of the expressway by introducing walkways with planters to stimulate the once submerged Humboldt Park system due to the construction of the expressway in the 1960s.

04 [CO]existence Articulating the Edge The western edge of University at Buffalo’s Main Bailey Campus presents a compelling urban condition. Here, the institutional scale of the campus is juxtaposed with the infrastructural scale of the transfer station and the residential scale of the University Heights neighborhood. While the space has a distinct civic character, it lacks a coherent formal articulation. Expansive surface parking lots on both sides of the street and the undistinguished commercial plazas exacerbate the sense of groundlessness. As a studio, we investigated formal startegies to orchestrate the issues at various scales in order to reveal and maximize their latent potential, for each site.

IV A R

Through a drawing exercise, I built a deep understanding of the existing site conditions with their strengths and weaknesses. Introducing multiple entry points to the site, to reduce traffic pressure from the one-only existing main entrance at Main Street. Also, subdividing the land parcel into smaller units, so that each area caters to a different mixed-use program, hence further organizing the traffic flow.

THE UNIVERSITY PLAZA LIES IN THE GATEWAY CONDITION. IT IS AS A MERGER AS IT SITS ON THE CITY BORDER OF BOTH THE TOWN OF AMHERST AND THE CITY OF BUFFALO. THIS PLAZA HAS A PLACE IN LOCAL RETAIL HISTORY AS THE AREA’S FIRST SUBURBAN SHOPPING PLAZA. THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN IN THE LIGHT OF DISCUSSION WITH ALL THREE GROUPS, THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK, THE CITY OF BUFFALO AND THE TOWN OF AMHERST. IN 1994, ACCORDING TO BUSINESS FIRST, THE UNIVERSITY PLAZA WAS TO CHANGE HANDS; BENDERSON REPORTED TO BE INTERESTED IN THE STRIP CENTER. IN 1996, THE NEW OWNER WAS REPORTED TO BE CONSIDERING A COMPLETE CHANGE IN THE DESIGN OF THE PLAZA. BENDERSON - RICHARD A FRANCO PURCHASED UNIVERSITY PLAZA FROM CANADIAN OWNER MORRIS DIAMOND. IN 2017, THE UNIVERSITY PLAZA WAS SOLD AGAIN TO PHILIPS EDISON AFFILIATE FOR $13.5 MILLION.

Humans are used to cars, just the way a fish is used to VIEW the water. The number of cars is not the problem. However, the number of trips VIEWbetween the different VIEW destinations is the problem.

This large site is divided into land parcels, and integrated/segregted the VIEW pedestrian and vehicular movements. VIEW Cars are aVIEW necessary evil. So, OKAY CARS!

05 WEAVING[IN] Sunnyside Sunnyside Neighborhood, Houstan, Texas 2017 Barbara G. Laurie NOMA National Student Design Competition - THIRD PLACE The proposal is based on the reclamation and weaving in of a derelict site in Sunnyside. Sunnyside is close to Houston yet with a declining population and one of America’s most unsafe neighborhoods. WEAVING[IN] SUNNYSIDE was one of the 20 competition entries in the 45th Annual NOMA Conference held in Houston, Texas. My role: I am the President of the NOMAs student chapter at UB. I also took lead and helped bring together the team and the work for the competition. As a team, we worked on the historical background, research and had multiple reviews with Brian Carter, the Faculty representative of UB NOMAs. We presented at the conference and won third place for UB.

WEAVING[IN] SUNNYSIDE proposes a school consisting of a new academic campus, an athletic center and a cultural hub. The academic campus is at the centre of the site. The athletic center and cultural hub are alongside existing facilities - the public library & police station in the south and a community pool to the north.

A new ATHLETIC CENTER at the northern end of the site alongside existing baseball diamonds and community pool.

A new ACADEMIC CAMPUS at the heart of the site designed to provide indoor and outdoor learning spaces in SUNNYSIDE.

A new CULTURAL HUB close to the existing library and police station. Education woven with strands of workshops and community gardens. 39


EXTENDING THE GRID FORMS STRANDS THROUGH THE SITE

NODES ON THE STRANDS FOR NATURE STUDIES, STORY TELLING, ART INSTALLATIONS & FIELD CENTERS

THE WEST SIDE OF THE SITE ENGAGES WITH THE CITY BY INTRODUCING AN ECOLOGICAL STRIP ACROSS THE HIGHWAY. FILTERS ARE SPREAD ACROSS THIS EDGE TO CONTROL AIR POLLUTION AND HUMIDITY.

THIS STRAND IS THE UNBUILT INFRASTRUCTURE . THE PUBLIC SPACE IS INTRODUCED TO THE SITE WITH A MULTI-USE STRATEGY. THE SPACE CAN BE USED FOR ART INSTALLATIONS, FOOD-MARKET OVER THE WEEKENDS OR OTHER EVENTS AND CONCERTS TO ENGAGE THE CITY WITH THE SITE WITHOUT ANY BUILT-INFRASTRUCTURE .

ECOLOGICAL STRANDS OF WATER RETENTION FIELDS & PLANTING THAT RECLAIM THE SITE & OFFER PUBLIC PROGRAMS

EDUCATION STRAND WOVEN INTO FABRIC AND LINKING IN EXISTING CIVIC BUILDINGS

THE ALTERNATING ECOLOGICAL STRIP IS INTRODUCED TO SAVE THE EXISTING TREES AND PLANT VEGETATION, FILTERING THE SOIL AND TOXIC WASTE.

WORK STRAND OF COMMUNITY GARDENS < GREENHOUSES & STARTUPS ALONG THE STREET

THIS STRAND IS THE BUILT INFRASTRUCTURE WITH DIFFERENT SCHOOL PROGRAMS, COMPLEMENTING THE EXISTING POLICE STATION AND THE LIBRARY.

THIS STRAND IS THE semi-BUILT INFRASTRUCTURE. THE CONCRETE WALLS WILL BE BUILT CORRESPONDING TO THE CITY BLOCKS ON THE EASTERN EDGE. THE COMMUNITY WILL DEVELOP GREEN HOUSE, START-UP INFRASTRUCTURE, HOUSING UNITS ACCORDING TO THE PRESENT RESIDENTS REQUIREMENTS

Weaving[IN] Sunnyside site 40


â&#x20AC;&#x153;WEBâ&#x20AC;? - WEAVING THE COMMUNITY considered on an urban design, ecological and inclusive standpoint, the site is considered to be a translucent median weaving the urban fabric to act as a node for education and community nhancement. The site is bisected by street grids that run along the site weaving a grid. The intersecting nodes are enriched with parks, sculptures, fountains, urban fruit gardens and place making landmarks that enrich the site.
