Casting Doubt is an exploration of ambiguity between figure and ground, solid and void, novelty and history, curiosity and recognition.
Nature Concert Hall is a multimedia nature and educational structure that incorporates science, dramaturgy, music and art.
Tangential dreams is a climbable sinuous tower made from off-the-shelf timber and digitally designed via algorithmic rules.
The proposed C.A.S.I.S (Center for Advancement of Science in Space) headquarters explores architectural form driven from emotional responses associated with the mystery and uncertainty of exploring the undiscovered in space.
Sui Generis leaves this homogeneous design process behind and gradually varies its functionality by adapting to their hosts until it becomes a hybrid.
Rejecting the notion of cultural pavilion as an object in a plaza, the China Pavilion is conceived as a field of spaces located beneath a floating cloud.
The Philadelphia Granary was once a vital urban agricultural repository, providing the city adequate storage solutions for grains. New distribution methods led to the abandonment of the facility in the 1950s. This proposal seeks to re-establish the warehouse as a museum of industrial art and reaffirm its connection to the established art district in the area.
Parametric design has created a need for variable formwork to achieve new forms. Ron Culver and Joseph Sarafian saw that as a design opportunity to combine the precision of 6-axis robots with the flexibility of fabric, creating a novel method for casting concrete.
The Minafold Pavilion is an exploration in material performance. Rather than treating sustainability as a checklist of material choices, this canopy poses the question, "Can the properties of a single material be maximized to achieve minimal waste and compose a visual performance?"
One story high building is located in Saue Parish Koidu Village in a private housing area. The geometry of the house is inspired by the plot itself and the movement of the sunlight to catch as much warm southern and western sunlight as possible. The building is a shape-shifter offering different views from every angle.
Fractures in the form created structural lines up the building. This allows for a structural system that allows the form to play in between the veins of the building.
Synesthesia is a project influenced by the works of Francois Roche. It is made with the intentions of creating an architecture that defies classification and reductionism.
Metamorphic void is not physical transformation; rather it is related on changing relationship between spaces.
The proposed hotel hopes to function both as a gateway for embassy employees arriving for short periods of time and long term immigrants. The idiosyncratic clash of a non-denominational prayer hall for immigrants with various backgrounds and the hotel for embassy and event guests provides an inventive typology to accommodate needs of both local and visiting groups.
This is a post about AmphibianArc.
Pauhu pavilion and open stage realized mainly through voluntary work as a part of Tampere Architecture Week, in Finland. It is an annual event about architecture and urban planning, intended to add interest and discussion about the built environment. The theme in 2015, Interaction, aimed to increase discussion between citizens themselves and between architects and citizens.
The EKKLESÍA installation represented a temple where citizens can meet and realize the power they have to change things through debate and confrontation of ideas.
Particulate Forest is discursive exploration into the engagement of spatial configurations with ambient or imperceptible conditions of the atmosphere.
Nonce Object is an experiment towards the creation of a multitude of readings of an architectural work. A nonce word is a word coined for a singular occasion to solve a communication problem where a nonexistent word is needed. A nonce object is this thesis’ coined term for a new type of formal organization that is indeterminate to the category it fits.
This project is interested in exploring the invisible boundaries in New York City, to further study how to use these invisible boundaries and the in-between territories, and to use this as an opportunity to generate logical and meaningful programs.
This thesis investigates the relationship between color and form through the reconfiguration of voids and the shifting of volumes, where the misregistration of one creates an alternate reading of the other.
