LIVE.WORK.PLAY acts as an extension of Buffalo's Elmwood Avenue, inhabting a mid-block site at which the residential and commercial cultures of the neighborhood overlap. Two L-shaped bars, one housing public program and the other private, frame the site in attempt to reconcile these cultures and create a unique urban housing complex that embraces both fully.

SPRING FALL 2010 2011 THE LIVING WALL EARTH ARCHITECTURE INSTRUCTORS: INSTRUCTOR: BETHBRUSCIA, TAUKE HUME, NAZARIAN, ROMANO

*Full scale build completed in conjunction with Alexander Poklinkowski, Rob Yoos, Ilana Simhon, Gina Mattioli, and Rachel Broardt.

THE LIVING WALL Objectives: Transform a 6" x 6" x 8" cube, removing internal mass in order to accomodate six sleeping spaces and circulation, while providing for the existence of neighboring structures on either side. Design transitions from massing, to programming, culminating in a final full-scale wooden structure.


DESIGN PROPOSAL The driving concept of this single unit of the living wall becomes to create a space within the "interior" of the original mass, which functions as an exterior space. Circulation functions cyclically, where one may move in either directon through the project around the aforementioned exterior space.

SPRING 2013 COLLAB DESIGN OFFICES INSTRUCTOR: SERGIO LOPEZPINIERO

COLLABORATIVE DESIGN OFFICES (Phases III and IV of IV) Objectives: Develop an architectural office on a previously established site on the corner of Washington and Mohawk in downtown Buffalo.


DESIGN PROPOSAL SHIFTING CAN BE USED TO ESTABLISH DISTINCTLY SEPERATE SPACES. THE RESULTING OVERLAP, VERTICALLY OR HORIZONTALLY WOULD THEN BECOME THE “COLLABORATIVE CORE” IN WHICH ALL FIRMS WOULD WORK TOGETHER ON VARIOUS ARCHITECTURAL PROJECTS.

SHIFTING

SPLITTING CAN BE USED TO CREATE A SEAMLESS TRANSITION FROM INDIVIDUAL FIRMS TO SHARED COLLABORATIVE SPACES. THE INTERNAL SPACES CREATED BY SPLITTING ALSO HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO CREATE PUBLIC INTERFACE AREAS, ALLOW FOR NATURAL LIGHT, AND CAPTURE WIND FOR VENTILATION.

Given the observance that many local architectural firms often have preferred working relationships with other engineering and design firms, the goal of the design becomes to create an office which houses firms who often collaborate on architectural projects while still maintaining their freedom to conduct their individual businesses with their own clients. The basic parameters of the design then become to establish a form that is both three buildings and one, establishes collaborative work zones for the firms, and encourages visual and physical interaction between the members of said firms.

RATHER THAN ESTABLISHING VISUALLY DISTINCT SPACES, FOCAL ARCHITECTURAL FIRM POINTS CAN BE ESTABLISHED IN THE BUILDING AROUND WHICH THE THREE SEPERATE FIRMS CAN EXIST. BY MAKING INCISIONS INTO THE BUILDING, SUCH FOCAL POINTS CAN BE ESTABLISHED WHILE ALSO ALLOWING FOR NATURAL LIGHT AND VENTILATION.

To achieve these ends, a split tower form is chosen which tapers and conglomerates into one mass in the upper floors. Each firm is provided its own unique first floor, including lobby, reception, and work spaces, As one moves up any individual tower, floors begin to bridge from firm to firm to create the opportunity for a tier of collaborative spaces secondary to those in the uppermost floors.

Three colors of desks indicate the desks of the different firms inhabiting the office, Engineering, Architecture, and Interior Design.


In a reversal of the human circulation moving from individual to collaborative floors, hydronic and air systems are circulated from a mechanical room on the roof and split downwards to supply the three individual towers. Hydronic fin tube radiators within a raised access floor system provide heat at the perimeter of each floor and allow for the control of temperature. Mechanical ducts suspended from inverted concrete slab ceilings provide fresh air circulation. The mechanical chaises which house these systems, along with circulation cores, form the cores around which enclosed spaces and private offices are placed, in order to maximize open office space.


In order to maximize open office space, the office utilizes structural skin and cores. A steel exoskeleton wraps around the tesselated faces of the building and a set of custom insulated panels and glazing is designed to mount against the inner face of the structure and minimize thermal bridging. The shades of these panels represent the three firms and the floors which one or more inhabit.

FALL 2010 EARTH ARCHITECTURE INSTRUCTOR: BETH TAUKE

THE EARTH-SKY CHAMBER (Phase III of IV) Objectives: Using land surveyed by a previously developed tool, make an incision into the earth and develop a space which will house three sacred bodies and reference the horizon.


DESIGN PROPOSAL The basic idea of the chamber is to challenge the standard conventions of observing the dead. The earthworks become a place where the user engages the sacred bodies and is essentially a space of play, where the user can do anything he or she wishes.

The form of the Earth-Sky chamber is based on a relationship with the Earth. Two of its three paths follow the most notable feature of the site, a depression in the landscape. The third path serves to bisect the other two, avoiding linearity and creating the potential for continuity in circulation through the space. All three mimic the landscape they occupy, allowing the user to experience walking over the same terrain at their side.


The sacred bodies housed within the incision are actual deceased bodies encased in stone caskets. Their varying positions within the site serve as both obstacles and enabling objects to movement, to be climbed under and over, to be both avoided and engaged.
