I / ENTER -MIXING | -ACTION | -CONNECTION

Pittsburgh, PA

(In collaboration with Kate Talkachova)

Office Building for city Council Members of Pittsburgh, accross from City County Building in Pittsburgh, PA It is the assertion of this thesis that the government is a protected institution serving the public, for which reason it needs to respond, acknowledge and invite the public. This relationship provides opportunities of mixing and interaction between the two extremes, while keeping the necessary boudaries. In order to accomplish this, an interstitial, mediating space is provided to facilitate and alleviate the interaction and co-existence of the seperate realms.

Piazza Torquato Tasso Gallery

Florence, Italy

Museo Come Una Rovine Monumentale

The project is a new gallery space for the exposition of foreign art in Florence. “ The American dream in Florence� served as the main theme for the design. The concept of the design derives from a set of photographs taken by an American student residing in Florence. From these photographs and along with the idea of connecting the tourists back more local and intimate space of the piazza Torquato, a formal strategy was developed to create a gallery suited to the theme. By analzying the photographs, there was a clear emphasis on ideas of overlapping and framing which were both used as a formal tectonic influence in the design.

Hudson Yards Museum

New York City, NY

The project is situated in New York city in proximity to the Highline. The programs of the building include 9 main galleries, 2 kunsthall galleries, a library, a cafe, and recreational spaces. The concept is to extend the highline within the museum and to create pockets of public spaces embedded along the main circulation path of the building that become magnets for social interaction. These rest areas are essential to the promenade aspect of the design as they allow visitors to pause and rest while enjoying the art thus responding to the problem of museum fatigue. The design of the building was also affected by the type of art that would be displayed in each gallery space. By shifting the volumes around the core and by folding and peeling away the exterior enveloppe, a variety of room sizes with different intensity of natural light are created. This allows for a more versatile arrangement of the art.

Parson Fashion Design School

New York City, NY

“The Interstitial Space�

The project is situated in New York city and the site is the current Parson Fashion School of design. The building sits on a corner site and the concept derives from the idea of pliage and fold, a common usage in fashion. Starting with two ribbons which are then intertwined and folded multiple times, a carvedlike space is created in between. The ribbon then divides into two allowing the seperation of two main programs: Fashion studios and classrooms. (private vs public) The interstital wall becomes the backbone of the building and main circulation space connecting the two opposite programs which are slightly offsetted. It is threading the two programs together and allowing views and social interactions.

Venice Film Institute

“Weaving” architecture

Venice, Italy

The design of the film institute derives from the analysis made of the movie “ The Draughtsman’s Contract”. By analyzing the screenshots of the movie, we notice that the setting of the acts are mostly symmetrical and mirrored while the storyline of the movie isn’t. Taking on this unsettled and ambiguous aspect of the movie, the design of the Film Institute tries to explore it even further with the idea of weaving. So that we understand the screenshots as moments in space and the threading of them as a form of weaving. The conceptual model of the design investigates the architectural potential of weaving.


First conceptual model Base on the movie “ The Draughtman’s contract�, the sequences of events are analyzed and diagramed into intertwining and weaving threads. The more compact the thread is the more complicate the story line.

Second conceptual model By forming two sets of threads representing the two different perspectives present in the movie and intertwining them, pocket spaces are formed.

Third conceptual model A more elaborate model inspired by the the second one which emphasizes on the formation of space.
