1 Fall 2016 Vines Research Library

Baltimore, Virginia Instructor: Lucia Phinney ARCH 3010 Research Studio I The city of Baltimore is involved with a lot of urban farming activities and it has a lot of vacant lots available for people to use. Inspired by the bitter melon, the exotic vines growing program is seen as an interesting application to the site and the city. Vines creates nice shades and cooling effects, bear healthy fruits and their flowers are extremely beautiful. Vines like the bitter melon, sweet pea, grape, passion fruit, kiwis, and etc. The program is meant to showcase the beauty of vines, which is relatively unknown to people, and its fruit production. The building, at the same time, can become a focal element of the city, creating a unique visibility which capture people’s interest in growing vines. By looking at both the study of the bitter melon fruit and the site at Baltimore one can imagine how the building fits and interacts with the site. Through the use of waffle and facet fabrication, the resulting structure is seen as emerging and floating from the ground. With a facet dome placed over, occupied by vines growing on the light tab-like structures, one can experience the spatial quality of both being in the interior and the exterior, constantly looking at this unique fuzzy looking, green covered dome.

Spring 2016 Continuity of Services

Preston Ave. Charlottesville, Virginia Instructor: Ryan Carbone ARCH 2020 Foundation Studio III The goal of this project is served as a continuation of services across Preston Ave. neighborhoods. It is believed that with a continuity of services there will be a continuity of community. To achieve this goal, the proposing services should correlate to the existing ones. Within the chosen site, we can see that the existing services (a church, a beer hall and a studio shop) have no relationship to one another. The proposed programs of the project will introduce new services that can achieve its goal of service continuity. The new programs will be a wedding venue, restaurant, hotel, gallery exhibition, winery, clothing store, bookstore, coffee shop, etc. The open ground floor where these new activities take place will maximize interactions between residents and the public through an ordered aggregation and circulation. The orientation towards the train-tracks also helps to form a visual service connection to the rest of the city. One level above is specified for temporary residents, while the rest of the tower floors are planned for smaller family and student residents. Formal strategy of extracting volume helps create voids within the building, which form several communal areas for the residents to interact with each other. These voids also help to ensure that each living space is provided with easy access, ample daylight and satisfying views.

Fall 2015 The Underground Tower

Lynchburg, Virginia Instructor: Manuel Bailo ARCH 2010 Foundation Studio II The project serves to reconnect the street topography and introduce new opportunities for the people of Lynchburg, Virginia. As a continuation of the City of Connections project and due to the time constraint of the project, only one building on the 13th Street, the Underground, was developed. This underground building contains one large tower that connects to another smaller tower, positioned half into the River, by a tunnel-like, underground hall. The ventilation tubes for the underground hallway shapes new playgrounds for people at the surface of the Park. The key aspect of the design is the unique views it offers to the audience.

Campbell Hall, University of Virginia Instructor: Ryan Carbone ARCH 1031- Foundation Studio I Taking into consideration of the architect’s intention of the existing space, the pod’s program was decided. The main goal of this project was to provide students a temporary place to be away from work stress. The pods materiality was taken from its surrounding. Using dark chalkboard stone palette, they can be arranged to suit the existing outdoor-classroom activity program. The interior of each individual pod can be designed to suit the personality of the person occupying it

Fall 2016 EAT - Expiration Alert Tablet App

Instructor: Erin Roots Partner: Rebecca Katcher ARCH 3070- Foundation of Design Thinking Our research question starts with a tackle on water scarcity, especially in dealing with water waste due to food waste. Statistically, $2,200 is wasted per household per year and 320 gallons is wasted per person per day due to food waste. We proposed a solution that ultilize smartphone technology to constantly remind people of the consequences of wasting foods, which in turns, wasting water resources. The app is implemented by grocery stores, sending shoppers timely reminders when certain food items they purchase are nearing their expiration dates. For the app to be successful, it is imperative that Kroger works to expand the implementation of GS1 barcodes in their stores and it was our jobs to convince Executives to fund us on this proposal. I worked closely with my partner and the intructor to ensure that my ideas are consistent with theirs. I was in charge of designing the app interfaces and its important components that can bring forth an impact on people and drive for a change. If the app leads to a 35% reduction in food waste, together, we can save your shoppers $770 per year and 112 gallons of water per day.

The goal is create geometrical and material representation of the precedent, producing it in series of renderings using Rhino, Vray to convey its details or overal formal character. Supplemental works also include an animation in Rhino Render and a Grasshopper file with demonstrated use of Python related abstractly to the study.

The pedagogical goals of this exercise are essentially about learning the basics of collective housing by analyzing existing well-­known chosen references. More specifically the exercise focuses on three aspects of collective housing: typology of aggregation, morphology and scale. All of them essential to even start thinking about designing collective housing in an urban given context.

Fukuoka, Japan Instructor: Ryan Carbone and Eric Barr SARC 555- Workflows Learning to produce a series of highly defined drawings that will force to depict one’s working process through the lens of a specific architectural case study. Emphasis is placed on thoughtful drawings that tell a story through the appropriate use of line weights, line types, hatches and other drawing elements presented. This Japanese hotel with its monumental facade is composed of a series of stacked amber-colored Iranian travertine columns and chemically aged copper lintels. The 62-rooms hotel block sits atop a stepped stone base, which provides for a public piazza in front of the main entry to the hotel. It is designed as an reinterpretation of classical orders.
