Tidelands / LA2024 Los Angeles, US

Thesis Project 2017 Prof. Dragana Zoric Prof. Evan Tribus Pratt Institute Team Work

Tidelands offers a new organizing tool for the City of Los Angeles. Tidelands is a synthetic device to implement the spatial attributes of “nature� in an urban environment. The project offers a new water typology which will synthetically recreate multiple modes of occupation and enable fluctuation between users and scales. The project offers to invert the public edge (from the beach to the River) to reconnect the city and create a network of public spaces, using the Los Angeles river. To do so,it uses the beach as a model, understanding the edge configuration at the beach, where edges are soft, adjacent, and fluctuating, and how different it is from that of the river. The goal of the project was to transform the rigid edge configuration of the river into a fluid one, that enables endless spatial conditions.


The project offers a new water typology by synthetically controlling the water. Creating a system of reservoirs and dams to allow the synthetic retaining and flooding of different segments. The water shifts from conditions of drought, to that of a flood, and offers a variation of modes of occupation, for dry or wet, day and night scenarios. The variation of modes is created by the intertwining of three architectural systems. The first, a continuous man made topographical system, that navigates the water, enabling endless changing spatial conditions (Dry/Wet, High/Low, Flat/ Sloped). The other two navigate people throughout the project. The first, an elevated bridge system, which begins in a commercial community center inside the neighborhood, carrying people from both banks of the river, flooding people in and out of the project. The second, adjacent to the water edge, routing people across the river, from north to south, allows a slower and more integrated experience with the water. Merging of these two systems, create crisp moments of enclosed and semi-enclosed spatial conditions, places of gathering.

In a dry, drought like condition, the topographical system will lead and provide dry activities such as tanning, hiking, and climbing. While the Sunken Pool, using both the topographical and the water edge system, will offer a specific wet location of gathering and play. In a stream condition, water related activities and spaces will take charge, activating the stream edge surface, for swimming, kayaking and in water experience. The enclosed space will be used for restrooms and dressing, the cliff point, overlooking the water, will hold dancing and music activities. And the cave condition will provide an intimate and naked location. In an extreme condition of flooding, the bridge system will take charge and enforce the endless horizon moments, suspended above the rushing water. This condition will enable deep water activities such as sailing. And redefine the use of previous spaces, putting emphasis on using their exterior skin.


Tidelands is as an opportunity to create a new public identity for LA. One that is driven by water. A place which chooses to sit on the fence between landscape and urbanity, the synthetic public space will offer an endless variation of activities, in scale, use and time.


Laboratory School Harlem,NYC

Fall 2019 Prof. Hilary Sample Harvard University

Laboratory School, Stacking & Pragmatism Urbanite children need a school that connects them to nature. A school that uses the natural environment as a therapeutic instrument. A pedagogy that explains the history of the previous eco-system and terrain once inhabiting their site. One that enriches them with the knowledge and skills of restoring and producing nature, food and water. And furthermore, educates them about the meaning of a sustainable future living. Where in a single story building, an emphasis is put on constructing an enclosure or an interior, stacking enables an attempt to construct an extensive exterior- a particular experience or sensation of being outside. From stacking to collapsing, through the shifting and rotating of spaces, the project creates a system of codependent spaces. The void between the stacked bodies becomes a vertical ecosystem, activating a variety of enclosed classrooms, exterior terraces and semi enclosed green houses.

John Dewey rejected the duality of epistemology and metaphysics of modern philosophy and believed in the naturalistic approach that viewed knowledge as arising from an active adaptation of the human organism to its environment. On this view, learning is a process which initiates human action, proceeds to active manipulation of the environment to test hypotheses, and issues in a re-adaptation of organism to environment that allows once again for human action to proceed. A school of nature, a garden school will teach its students real things that have a concrete value in life. Students will constantly adapt to their seasonally changing environment. Every floor will initiate a different type of human interaction with the natural surroundings.

High Density Low Rise Housing London, UK

Fall 2017 Prof. Farshid Moussavi Harvard University Individual Work

The degree of change in the way Londoners cohabit the city today compared to the last century is an opportunity for a radically different approach to the architecture of the multistory residential building. This studio draws inspiration from an earlier high-density ‘continental’ model developed by Georges-Eugène Haussmann, as well as architecture’s potential to embody diversity, inclusivity, and social mobility.


My project offers a direct contact between its residents and the exterior environmentboth urban and natural. Using the large footprint of the site, as an excuse to maximize the relationship between people and the outside. As shown here, the site strategy, entails maximizing the area of the city block, dividing it to max width segments, shifting heights in relation to points of interest, pulling down mass to maximize view, and finally creating courtyards in between the linear massing. A direct relationship to the outside, will minimize the ‘tiresome’ moments of ‘in-between’, as seen in projects similar in scale and typology, built in London post -WWII housing crisis. By allowing each unit direct contact to the exterior, the project will empower the residents’ sense of individuality

Nepal Housing Studio Kathmandu, Nepal

Fall 2016 Prof. Enrique Limon Pratt Institute Individual Work

Within Nepal there is an immanent, growing, and deep rooted problem of deforestation. The average annual deforestation rate has amounted to 1.9% in total between 1990 and 2005, thus, Nepal has lost approximately 24.5% of it’s forest cover (1,181,000 hectares). Deforestation and land degradation appear to affect an impressive, and substantial proportion of the population and have the worst consequences for economic growth and individuals’ livelihood. By restoring the spent terrain, the occupant becomes integrated and conscious of the forest around them. The city becomes a hybrid of landscape and home. By rethinking the implications a city has on the valued forestscape of Nepal, the green space becomes the urban fabric and the community space for the occupant. The site for this studio investigation will be a test site, chosen by the Prime Minister and Nepal’s Department of Planning. It is a site in Tohka, just north of Kathmandu, while still within the city boundaries, yet remote from Katmandu’s city center. The site is approx. 35 acres and will accommodate 300 homes, a kindergarten, primary school, community center, clinic, and parks. A testing ground for the new housing typologies, axillary programs, landscape and master planning.

"I love being on the water because the oars spoke. Listen: they spun poetry out of equations drawn from fluid dynamics. They summoned the ghosts of other rowers, from nineteenth-century collegians to Nile boatman. Mostly, though, they asked tough questions about who I am and what I am made of" - Barry Strauss, 'Rowing Against The Current'.

Pratt Graduate Dormitory Brooklyn, NY

Fall 2015 Prof. Beth O'Neill Pratt Institute Team Work

The design of a medium density dormitory housing is an opportunity to investigate three problems: 1. What it means to dwell within an urban area: Internally – the apartment typology, the nature of its household composition, an articulation of the live/study arrangement and the promise of shared communal spaces. Externally – the visual and physical relationship to outdoor space and surrounding context. 2. An investigation of form as a response to multiple limitations: Formulating a building project from the opportunities presented by the safeguards and restrictions that governmental authorities prescribed for multiple dwellings. 3. The idea of an architectural identity expressed through façade: Understanding the external skin as a unique overlaid system of relationships – environmental, social, organizational, tectonic.

Wave Hill Academy Bronx, NY

Spring 2015 Prof. Ran Oron Pratt Institute Individual Work

Visiting our site at Wave Hill, one must immediately notice the impact of the trees surrounding him. In a forest filled with trees, and only a number of scattered built structures, it was clear that the trees were in control of the space, and that their impact on visitors is greater than any other element that exists on site.

In the making of the 'site analysis' model the mapping was translated into a repetitive world of rectangles emphasizing even more the spatial voids created between the trees on site.

To understand the relationship between the trees and the site, I produced a series of sections covering large portions of the site. Examining different conditions of figure ground, built and unbuilt, solids and voids. Creating a 'bark-like' mapping of the trees on site, according to their location, size and intensity.


A joint model, representing a structural idea of making the site, which later became a representation of not only structure, but also of light, skin, and space.

"These trees are magnificent, but even more magnificent is the sublime and moving space between them, as though with their growth it too increased." (Gaston Bachelard, 'The Poetics of Space').

As a response to the strong verticality of the trees I had created an endless horizontal element dominating its surroundings. The building is divided into three parts by two clear and open entrances. Entering from the south entrance is the private residence, separated from the semi public work spaces. On the other end is the communal auditorium space.

Using the railed joint system I created an outer skin shell, semi open to the outside. Within it are the sealed spaces, arranged in different positions, creating a constantly changing relationship to the skin and to the outside. In a way, the structural skin became Bachelard's forest, with the inner spaces as the rooted trees, and between them were the moving spaces for the visitor to explore.

An Archive for the Performing Arts Chinatown, NY

Fall 2014 Prof. Eva Perez De Vega Pratt Institute Individual Work

We live in a world of information technology, where the collection and distribution of information is itself the dominant component of economic and cultural discourse. Information is often transmitted in a packet, whether it be a book, a piece of artwork or as a digital bit. The storage, maintenance and administering of access to these bundles of information is as important as it has ever been. The proposed archive is concieved as not only satisfying these functions but also as an operative architectural response, enhancing these issues.

What would be the nature of a contemporary archive? How can it facilitate and augment the relationships between users and the archived materials within? How can it facilitate and augment the relationships between users and the field of information beyond the physical confines of the facility and the site? What challenges to public and private, local and global exist in this context?


Left: Site Plan & Site Section

A Series of sections examining the relationship between the two folding systems. The inner system reacting to the visitors' needs and the external system folding in relevance to the street experience.

An archive for the performing arts, located in the center of high densed Chinatown, in New York City. An area known for it's growing level of traffic, noise and pollution. An Area that is in need of a new architectural gesture. The Idea was to create an archive who serves as a gesture to the human and to the urban scales.

The archive acts as two unfolding systems. The first, an articulated 'striated' surface, that relates to the scale of the body and the collection, creating different gathering and media spaces. The second, a 'smooth' envelope surface, shielding the building and creating exterior urban gestures, such as outdoor street view points. The relationship between the two systems creates changing exterior & interior conditions and moments, which vary in levels of privateness and publicness.

Under the leadership of Marc Fornes, I have led the design of a short list submission which we was ultimately awarded and which is now built. The project is entitled ‘Under Magnitude,’ and is situated in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The computationallydesigned and digitally fabricated installation is 23’ high, 31’ wide and 44’ deep, and hangs in a large exhibition hallway. Read as one element from far, the piece is in fact the sum of many sub-elements- a network of bulbous and bone-like branches unified by a single smooth white. Composed of an intricately curvilinear singular surface, the piece itself is not a surface, but a three-dimensional subspace, triangular in plan and reaching upwards into a funnel-like shape element.
