Louisiana Culinary Art College

Located within a historical neighborhood of New Orleans, the project is designed to sensitively address its context. Building width and floor to floor height are influenced by adjacent houses and light commercial complex. As a corner lot, the site offers the opportunity to inspire pleasant public impression approaching from both St. Claude street and St. Roch street. In the resulted design, the lifted corner liberates the street corner to give the public an outdoor space surrounded by the various programs embedded within the building volume.

Facade Construction

The interior circulation of the project are two intertwined paths. One path connects commercial elements of the program while the other connecting educational and institutional elements. To maintain continuous activities, sloped floor plates are incorporated with appropriate programs. The roof surface becomes part of the journey as well where vegetation are planted for culinary purpose, creating pleasant platforms for the students and faculty of the institution. Instead of exposing the diagonal structure, perspective imaginary skewing is applied to the skin of the building. On the utmost exterior surface, glass panels printed with culinary related images are installed where needed. On the inside of the diagonal structure, perferated metal panels applied with inversed images are installed where light control is required.

URBANSCAPE BIO-LINK

Team Project, Large Site Planning

Inherent within the 25-acre site are the objectives of containing flood waters while handling and processing excessive water from the surrounding neighborhood. This project aims to bridge the gap between intervention of architecture and preservation of existing landscape. Through the intergration of a complex water circulation system and an undulation architectural landscape, the project accommodates the required programs and support the communal activities, while preserving all existing live oaks and other valuable trees.

Site Plan and Key Plans

The site is divided into four general zones. The north-west parcel of public program is comprised of a restaurant, a community center, a swimming facility, and a natural pool filled with site-purified water via bio-remediation. On the north-east corner, two large housing structures are surrounded by existing live oaks, filtering morning light. The south-west corner is brown- and grey-water storage with a complex biological and mechanical water purification system. The south-east corner of the site houses farming elements whose prodece serves both the on-site restaurant and the larger community.

LCM

Louisiana Children’s Museum, Team Project

Gently placed above the natural lagoon in New Orleans City Park, the Louisiana Children’s Museum (LCM) project aims to intergrate itself with the beautiful landscape while minimizing its environmental impact. To re-evaluate the common notion of a children’s museum, the building itself, both internally and externally, becomes part of the imaginative journey of various exhibitions. Interactive to the environment and its internal programs, the scaleslike skin changes its opacity and its funtion accordingly.

Diagrams and Site Plan

The shape of the building expresses an analogy to the constant movement of a dancer. The active nature of kids is captured and solidified into a fluid architectural form. When investigated in multiple sections, the form is responsive to its external conditions. The lifting and landing of the building shape not only supports itself but also creates dynamic interaction between the building, the pedestrians, and the natural elements.

GUARDIANS OF THE FLAME PERFORMANCE PAVILION The Guardians Institute: Donald Harrison Sr. Museum and Cultural Center is an outgrowth of The Guardians of the Flame Mardi-Gras Indian tradition. The relatively simple program masks the great ambitions of the facilities purpose in the community. Suspended from the ground a large metal sheathed shell covers an outdoor performance space, an enclosed classroom, washroom/ changing room and support space. On occasions when the performance is on the ground and in the streets the stage and the oversized stairs become seating for a captive audience. Behind a double layered surface of white poly-gal is an environmentally controlled classroom space equipped with counter space, bookshelves and cabinetry for storage. This space is primarily used for the well- established literacy program and other teaching endeavors of the institute. Like the Mardi-Gras Indian ceremonial “Mask� the structure is a beacon of inspirational light to the community, in which it exists, inviting all to join in a celebration of collective culture.


GUARDIANS OF THE FLAME PERFORMANCE PAVILION

Site Plan

Set deep within a double residential lot the structure celebrates the front yard as a community space for gathering. The large performance pavilion celebrates the porch as an outdoor space, not just a transitional space between inside and outside. Its height and breadth is informed by the size of a fully “Masked� chief, which can reach heights of over 8 feet tall.

Sukkah Lantern Sukkah

Design-Build, Team Project

Sukkah Design is a week-long, design-build program that is held every year for the Jewish holiday Sukkot. As a simple structure built for praying and festival during the holiday, the Sukkah Lantern Sukkah project aims to provide an isolated sanctuary on the crowded campus. Palm Tree Leaves and Bamboo

Beetle_Bus Stop

Revit + Adobe, Team Project

The Beetle is a bus stop that is more than a shelter. The goal of its form is to create two diagonally opposite openings for arriving buses on both sides with one simple and continuous gesture. Parametric constraints are used in the shaping of this design. All adaptable constraints are manipulated to maximize comfort, appropriate dimension on site and general aesthetic.


DANAUS

Design and Fabrication

Bright and stunning, Danaus is realized by various panels that are made of CNC milled dense foam. This digitally-designed installation celebrates the entrance of the Tulane School of Architecture building. Starting with the perspective illusion of a complete cube, the geometry and size of punctures gradually grow and morph into a more organic and liberated form that eventually fuctions as a pamphlet shelf.
