Alone together is a housing project that exists within a grey zone between traditional models of ownership and co-operative living. This building attempts to challenge contemporary notions of productivity and efficiency. This project begins with an initial interest in group form project typologies, buildings that read as assemblies, and investigates the inevitable part to

whole relationships that emerge within these formal compositions. Through the manipulation of rectangular volumes on a Cartesian grid by way of conic sections, the project’s form begins to distort itself; it clearly reads as an aggregate, yet the edges of the objects are blurred. It becomes a building of many parts and many wholes. 07

This same conceptual interest (the part to whole misreading) is carried through to the interior (the life) of the project by way of programmatic strategies which aim to foster similar qualities of the exterior— not by means of offsetting but by investigating how potential misunderstandings in the way things are constructed can be architecturally productive. Traditional apartment buildings distribute program uniformly, with each unit containing all essential 14

rooms for the residents. Residents are completely isolated from one another, spare the brief interactions in spaces of circulation. They also only occupy a small portion of the entire building’s footprint. Cooperative housing suggests some level of shared space, meaning residents cohabit some predefined program. Interaction is encouraged, and notions of ownership are blurred. Our project rejects these two models as we take the programmatic diagram of the

single family home, and it. Program distribution building, not the unit, ta form typology to provide internal activities. For ex all the kitchens in the bu all the living rooms. Th floor plan, which adapts


d scale it instead of arraying occurs at the scale of the aking advantage of the group e a formal separation between xample, one volume contains uilding, while another contains his produces an idiosyncratic to both form and program.

GOOD FOOD

ARCH 100B | SPRING 2018 INSTRUCTOR: DAVID ORKAND

Beginning with an initial interest in the rectilinear spaces favored by the program and site requirements of this food production, consumption and research building, the design for this urban structure develops into two extruded and twisted squares. The articulation of this rotation becomes a basis for a series of reactionary compositional moves that formally express this action with varying degrees of clarity. Located in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco, the projects design is a response to a variety of environmental and social factors.

Plan Oblique

The geometry of the stairs is derived from arcs which map the different tangencies of the large square figures in plan as they rotate from level to level. The building’s rotation causes it to extend 4’ beyond the property line, a contemporary take on San Francisco’s bay window zoning regulations. Other setbacks strategically allow light to filter through to the street throughout the day. 24

ANALYTICAL STUDY

ARCH 100B | SPRING 2018 INSTRUCTOR: DAVID ORKAND

As a precursor to the Good Food project, this study of the Shibuara House designed by Kazuyo Sejima was done in an effort to further understand building systems. This study focuses on the architect’s interpretation of the nine square grid as an organizational principle. The Drawing maps the


nine square grid pattern in a faint green line across all levels, which when projected obliquely reveals the geometric symmetry of the project, as well as the playful diversions from the grid. The model subtly tracks shifts in plan from level to level through the layering of paper as a means of projection.

Concept Site Axon

This project is a study on interaction of form to produce spatial hierarchy in service of defining program. Two geometrical languages are employed in dialogue with one another, resulting in harmony, conflict, and an awareness of the surrounding environment. 39

TWO CLASSROOMS

ARCH 100D | SPRING 2019 INSTRUCTOR: DAVID JAEHNING This project frames interiority as its primary focus, with the material properties of concrete used to create contrast and cohesion. The design is two square rooms, identical in plan, programmed as an interior classroom and an exterior classroom. Difference emerges in section, as the exterior classroom is lifted off the ground, and the interior classroom is sunken slightly below. 45

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

PROFESSIONAL | SUMMER 2018 BELZBERG ARCHITECTS I was involved in the schematic design for the master plan for an elementary and middle school located in Los Angeles. The existing site consisted of a series of loosely connected buildings constructed over a thirty year period beginning in the 1960’s. Having recently acquired two large plots of land across the street from the existing site, the school sought solutions for how to utilize the newly purchased land, while also unifying the disjointed existing layout of the school. Our proposal was sectional in nature, stemming from a realization that the massive site sloped downward 15’. This understanding allowed us to design a bridgelike structure that would span across the street, creating a massive plinth unifying the entire campus. The drawings shown here were completed independently and design was done in collaboration with David Cheung and Hagy Belzberg.

A proposed retrofitting of large portions of the east and south facade of the existing school, allowing for large amounts of diffuse light.

A horizontal platform is added to the school, level to Wilshire Boulevard, creating generous outdoor space and unifying the school.

A core is removed from the existing building, creating a vertical atrium to bring light in to the new classroom spaces.

A new gym building is constructed across the street on new property acquired by the school. The new building is connected by the horizontal platform.

STUDIO MLA OFFICES

PROFESSIONAL | SUMMER 2017 LEHRER ARCHITECTS

I was involved in the design work of Mia Lehrer’s office in downtown Los Angeles. The project was a retrofit of an existing storage shed, which could not be touched due to strict building codes. The projects houses Studio MLA, a landscape architecture firm of 50 people. My responsibilities included translating existing autocad drawings into a comprehensive rhino model, as well as working on large scale working physical models.
