Immerse(D) The Immerse(D) project was created to make a spacial condition radically different from its surrounding context Its mission was to involve the occupant in a completely new situation, to envelop them in a space that was unique interesting and private. These conditions were created by merging color, sound, light and the basic building block polystyrene foam cups. JOHN.RISI / MATTHEW.NOE Instructor: Kivi Sotamaa



Proto Architecture Challenges the idea of “thickness” in architecture where skin acts as strictly surface topology. It attempts to create an integrated architecture of highly ornate surface which breaks away from a pattern logic and begins to form both space and structure. The protoarchitectural system is comprised of three layers all based on a triangular volumetric module. Three layers, each at larger scalar units (x,2x,&4x) are superimposed to create a dynamic patterned reading. The first layer (x) acts as a sunscreen the second (2x) is the system’s enclosure, and the third layer (4x) acts as a structural system. Connection bars vary, allowing the layers to delaminate at various moments to provide for interstitial spaces. PILSUN.HAM / SEUNG-HYUN.KIM / MATTHEW.NOE Instructor: ELENA MANFERDINI



Tokoyo Fashion Museum Tokoyo City, Japan Omotesando St. Aoyama Neighborhood, Minato-ward Challenges the idea of “thinness” in architectural surface and skin. The project takes a singular module type which Propagates itself over the entire massing. Much like an article of clothing, the envelope was designed with individual panels which are attached together at the seams. Instead of a shrink-wrapped envelope, the building “tears” apart at the seam conditions to reveal interior programmatic activity, specifically at the runway level. The specific component deployed was chosen for its sectional qualities - one surface which splays into a second, and could be used for additional structural support or to reach back and attach to interior members. It investigates the notion of introducing variation within this homogenous structure by utilizing three different conditions of treating the spaces between - open structure, glazing, and solid fill. The intensity, and location, of each condition creates a secondary figuration which brings the massing into a cohesive whole. PILSUN.HAM / SEUNG-HYUN.KIM / MATTHEW.NOE Instructor: ELENA MANFERDINI

POST HOST in city x Through technology and its advancements we are able to utilize digital fabrication techniques that redefine previous assumptions of material and assembly systems. Pultrusion of a carbon fiber strand system has particular advantages that can be explored through scripting techniques. The Toronto Dominion Center Towers, designed by Mies Van der Rohe, can be viewed as the most ideal host for developing a templating system. The Toronto Dominion Center towers are our “host”. We will develop an additive system that will begin to embed itself within itself. Through this we will look at the moments that allow connection to be formed between the newly infected towers. The existing steel of the towers would act like a scaffold, to allow for support and material to be transferred, but after the secondary material takes hold and Begins to gain strength within bundles; the original primary system can begin to recede or shift where it could not before. A new interpretation of floor space, façade design, patterning and transparency are questions on the table. Allowing for the carbon fibers to be a series of nested nests, a new rigidity is possible. Relying on a system of multi-layered pipes some can be seen as purely aesthetic, but no clear differentiation is made between the discrete layered systems.

Archi-Garden Designing for a problematic wood shop in Taiwan caused for the creation of a transformable space. This new wood shop functions as multiple programs: a meeting space gallery space work space and party space. This project challenges the idea of function through the idea of transformation. The building is made up of corrugated steel and garage doors with a collapsible tensile structure on its side. MATTHEW.NOE / GRADUATE TEAM Instructor: Jr Gang Chi

Personal Statement I received a technical background in Architecture and design at the Knowlton School of Architecture located on The Ohio State University campus in Columbus, OH. There I was taught to use CAD software with a real world perspective to resolve geometrical and spatial problems. My interests shifted to a more artistic and animated approach to design resulting in a fascination for animation, simulation and visualization techniques. I was accepted into the M.ARCH 2 program at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-arc) with an interest in digital design and fabrication. Here is where I started my studies of programming and digital modeling. During my masters studies in LA I was a part of the Xlab a design research program, led by Peter Testa which focuses on the use of collaborative robotics and additive fabrication processes in Architecture. For my master’s thesis I developed a process to harvest natural salt minerals from the environment, and use them in a building facade. At the beginning of 2012 I was a consultant for SlapHQ! where I developed drawings and concepts for the up and coming Nuit Blanche project Quasar II. Visual story telling remains a fundamental part of articulating ideas in my work. I see design issues as narratives for living and building that intertwine into a new understanding of what is architecture. My techniques are using 3-D software and simulation tools to generate patterns and objects in ways that mimic a natural order. I am looking for new and interesting opportunities where I can use my skills. It is always my desire to be creative an inspiring while also looking toward the future and thinking with issues of sustainable in mind.
