HARLEM SCHOOL OF THE ARTS The Harlem School of the Arts is a public institution that instruct more than 3,000 young people in areas like music, dance, theater,and visual arts. This semester the idea of remodeling the original building was introduce as a design problem. The brutalist building facade was completely blocking the interaction with the public and its community.

Spring 2013 Prof. Alberto Foyo Collaboration with Karina Laferrie


The original topography of the site in West Harlem allowed the possibility of connecting Hamilton Park and the school itself so there is not only an interaction with the community but with nature itself. The proyect focuses in conecting nature with nature and the interaction of outdoors and indoors spaces so that the students didn’t feel secluded from their own neighborhood. In other words providing a place not only for learning but also for social gathering.

BUSHWICK DWELLINGS

Over the years Bushwick took a shift from a neighborhood of high rate crime to a community with art and culture that has changed the building uses. Allowing the development of a social congregation and comunal dwellings. Our site consisted of an abandoned warehouse which original structure was used to develop an artist congregation and a way to give something to this shifting environment.

Fall 2012 Prof. Alberto Foyo Collaboration: Christian Camacho Magdalena Checo, Marcus tung, Noreen Kagzi, Evan Kalogiannis, William McMillan, Tiffany Urosa, Melissa Santana, Moe Myat Thu, Deswacy Powell, Diana Zwetzich


The site is located in Harrison Pl and Morgan Ave. The abandoned warehouse became the access to the communal dwellings where two circulation cores where located at either corner of the existing building. The forgotten walls of this warehouse became the canvas where exhibits would take place Promoting artist congregation and the community. On the second floor or in this case the existing roof became part of land art which delineates the transition from the exhibition space and the dwellings on the top which were supported by aditional structure added to the building. Finally, lifting on the air by trusses the communal dwellings and urban agriculture took place.

BARRAGAN HOUSE AND STUDIO ANALYSIS OF LUIS BARRAGAN’S HOUSE Fall 2012 Prof. Alberto Foyo Collaboration with Melissa Santana and Tiffany Urosa Barragan House is situaded in the busy Mexico City. The introverted facade of his house doesn’t reveal of the magic that is happening in the interior. The analysis of indoor and outdoor spaces is studied in a series of diagrams as well as the relationship of working and living spaces. The different views at different points of the house provides a better understanding of how important was for Barragan to connect the different aspects of each space with nature.

MANHATTANVILLE SWIMMING POOL

Spring 2012 Prof. Athanasios Haritos


The design of a public swimming pool was proposed in the interception of 128st and convent av. The project would rebuilt the neighborhood and will give the opportunity for social interaction between people who lives in the surroundings.

16


The connection of the two streets and creationg a public space will introduce manhattanville to anew gathering space. Just like Siza’s swimming pool I wanted to create sectional movements and interaction happening inside the building where the public activity is happening at the street level. The idea of keeping the original topography is portrait on the roof; and the city original landscape is being preserved.

LECA SWIMMING POOL

Spring 2012 Prof. Athanasios Haritos

Leca swimming pool sits in a rocky site by the atlantic ocean. The project was designed by Alvaro Siza in 1966; and it consists of two swimming pools, one in a rectangular shape which was use by adults and a smaller one that follows the countors of the rocky landscape.

Siza’s project is about a multiple series of thresholds between different elements; the land, the sea, the city. Each one is separated by transitional spaces that expand the site and the pools in the horizon

The views change as you walk from the city to the pool; the view of the pool is absence if you are in the city, but as you descend to the building the pool become clear to your view.

HOUSE: CASE STUDIES The studies of architectural works were analize in order to understand how different spaces are organized and how each particular space has its own qualities that make each architectural experience unique.


Spring 2011 Collaboration: Magdalena Checo Prof. Martin Stigsgaard Michael Delgado, Madelyn Pena Luis Barragån and Jørn Utzon architectural works were understood with the help of drawings, photos and model making analysis. Each house brings two different architectural approaches in two different settings and climate conditions.


GILARDI HOUSE Architect: Luis Barragรกn Location: Mexico City, Mexico Year Completed: 1976 Square Footage: 360m


HOUSE: CASE STUDIES I SPRING 2011 I MARIUXI V RIVAS

In the city of Mexico, an elongated volume sits in a narrow site. This volume is not that attractive from the outside, however the inside enclose an experience full of color and light where this two elements creates a unique experience. A tree was found in the site when Barragan visited the future Gilardi propery; he decided to keep it and built the house around it.


The house was designed for a bussinessman and his family with a very simple program ordered on an axis along the ground, that slides with a small urban impact on the outside and intimate inside.


CAN LIS HOUSE Architect: Jørn Utzon Location: Majorca, Spain Year Completed: 1971


HOUSE: CASE STUDIES I SPRING 2011 I MARIUXI V RIVAS

Jørn Utzon designed its own house in the city of Majorca, Spain after being the winner fo r the design of the sidney opera hall in Australia. He had some problems while the Opera Hall was under construction, so He decided to move to Spain and built his house that he named as Can Lis. The house is designed by four different pavillons which each one faces the Mediterranean Sea with different views from it.


“Can Lis is one of the finest houses built in the twentieth century.� - Richard Weston


The natural sun light plays and important role in the way the different spaces are being set up. The house it is complemented by a series of courtyards and terraces. The most dominant pavilions are the dinning room and the kitchen that opens to a courtyard. There is almost not transition between inside and outside.


PATH

Fall 2010 Prof. David Judelson

Path is described as a series of threshold that creates a journey from one point to another. These thresholds create a sequence that can be experience as that journey takes place in different spaces throughout time. of design that with we see in our everyday life. In this project, four solid pieces were given. Those pieces will be connected by a path that creates a language an d a connection. The solid-void relationship is studied over the course of the project . I saw those pieces as islands separated that were once part of a whole but in some point spread out; just like Pangea which was a continent and the tectonicplates movements of the earth make it to spread out, they need to be connected somehow with a path that merge those pieces together.

THRESHOLD

Fall 2010 Prof. David Judelson

Threshold is a transition. It is where transformation starts. It is the moment which deliniates inside and out. In the first semester of design communications, we the idea of threshold using a series of planes in order to described in a very diagramatic way the nature of space in relation with time, sequences, and certain elements of design that with we see in our everyday life.
