The Un-Museum anchors to the site by going against the philosophy of

Charleston, it connects with a public space embodied by open air circulation
system making an visual and aromatic connection.

Charleston is a city based on historic

preservation and the history directly influences the culture similar to that of a museum. A museum, being a place where
art and research is displayed/preserved
(physical form). In contrast to Culinary
Arts which are displayed but constantly
consumed with knowledge being the
only thing preserved (not physical form),
which consistently creates a void, being
filled with new forms of art, research, and
technology. The strategy of the void has
a close relationship to the program of the

process, and visual adjacencies. It is apparent that a central void is enveloped

by a majority of the spaces. The void becomes a mediator for the interaction of
institution and public, containing a bake
shop, pastry kitchen, teaching kitchens,
a roof garden and a culinary restaurant
that folds down into the void as the primary support of the program. A primary
consideration in the thought of the program is based around adaptability in
terms of adjusting to consistent new creation, occupation, and technology. This
became one of the driving criteria for
the form of the multi-story public space.

An In Between Place of Building and Ground

Critic: Albertus Wang & Hui Zou
Year 4: Summer 2012

Taking Inspiration from the city of

Chongqing in North/Central China, this
study begins to further explore how the
people of the Shibanpo District occupy
the mountainous landscape. There are
endless possibilities for how people use
the landscape but this architectural/urban
proposal focuses on just a few such as
cantilever, embed, depression, etc. The
driving force of the project looks at taking the ways in which people use, move,
and occupy public and private spaces in
a urban context and create a combinatory
condition, that acts as an anchor to the
site and can link/respond to its context.

These forces combined helped create

an architecture that approaches something like a building at times and something like a landscape at others, where the
edge between the horizontal and vertical
become blurred. The formal proposal
has a strong gestural approach but was
not intended to be just a form in a field
but yet the form derives from a process
of making as many connections as possible to the already in place infrastructure
and topography. The programmatic proposal allows for an integral architecture
for the users of Shipanbo that functions
as a hybrid between building and ground.

These spatial sequence drawings look at the

building as ground (enveloping space between
ground and ground). There is a priority given to
the pedestrian means of movement as all direct

connection are accessible by foot, vehicular

access is secondary. Upon entering the combinate building the occupant arrives at a public green space, with an observation insertion
hovering above the mountainous landscape,
with views through the public plaza portion out
to the Yangtze River.

Woven Web Atrium Intervention

Critic: Lee-Su Huang
Year 3: Spring 2012

The Atrium Intervention is an extension of

the already in use program of a student/
faculty lounge are between classes. Architecture students and have faculty have
a tightly woven bond taking into consideration the amount of hours spent together
in studio, and other classes. The woven
web intervention strives to maintain that
strong social relationship between students and faculty alike outside of studio

or the office. The basis of this project

comes from the structure of a woven spider web. The primary structure is woven
through the entire atrium but remains relatively open to allow for gathering spaces.
The secondary structure and spatial interaction is an extruded hexagonal surface
for individual lounge, study, or relaxation,
this is located of the wall closest to the
studios in the building. Opposing the in-

dividual lounge is a different series of

extruded hexagonal shaped that project
light into the atrium and can serve as
pin-up space for an exterior critique or
display. Both extruded surfaces are held
together with a steel hexagonal tube construction. This proposal will provide the
students and faculty with public and semiprivate spaces and encourage the use
of more open air events for the UF SoA.

An Alteration of Paynes Prairie

Year 2: Spring 2011

Paynes Prairie is a Floridian Preserve

housing a wide variety of flora/fauna
conditions. During the initial site visit
I discovered this was not just a dry
prairie like those in the Midwest of the
U.S. but similar to the rest of Florida
this has some wetland features. There
is an artificial drainage system in place
as well as routine controlled fire events

swamp. As I began to look at this

site spatially the integration between
the man-made and natural systems
needed to be intertwined but allow for
the man-made to be distinct similar to
the underlying system to ground the
project to the context. The program
was a simple spatial construction that
provided a space for park info/display,
a space for observation, and a space

of dwelling for traveling visitors. The

project became an integrated project
of space and nature where overhead
conditions come from ground, placing the occupant in a space between
ground, building, and ground. Using
site trajectories/views help develop
the internal rooms and create a spatial
construction fulfilling the program and
integrate both systems and spaces.

Edge Morphologies of the Florida Landscape

Year 3: Fall 2011

Initial Sketches Concerning Volume and Surface

Matted Seaweed Inspiration taken from site

The mat can be thought of as a systematic field of consistent and repetitive

parts, dispersed across a large-scale territory.
- Chris Reed

The Mat Landscape along Floridas

Northwest Coast was inspired by the
ideas of Stan Allens Mat Building, and
Chris Reeds Mat Ecologies. This exploration began with a study of how the edge
conditions of Fort Island Trail Beach have
changed over time. In order to structure
the beach, inspiration was taken from a
matted seaweed type material on the
beach. The connections of the mat is what
pushed the project further, as where ever
there was a change in the edge condition,
there was an intersection, which ultimately helped construct the underlying framework of the landscape. With a framework
in place, the surface of the landscape
formed from a similar Mat inspired process. Relating surface to a mat in the
sense of a filter, a series of cut, fill, and


extrusion operational parameters begin

to form the Mat Landscape surface. The
Cut allows for designated areas of human
occupation and/or specific flora growth.
Fill allows intertidal waves to overflow into
specific areas for interaction with remaining water filtering out artifacts for visitor
keepsake. Extrusion begins to provide
shade for occupants due to the high heat
effects of the sun at the site. The idea of
Mat as Filter became about the exchange
of two parts or two edges as the program of the USCG Flotilla Facilities was
added to the program of the landscape.
The idea of two folded planes exchanging
space began to create the initial building
diagram, where one folded plane creates
an overhead condition, and then is enveloped by a skin system for enclosure.

Conceptual Mat Landscape and Integrated Construction with Performative Surface


Initial Skin Study working with variable light possibilities

Variation among components

The next layer of the project was to create a

performative surface, according to the criteria
of sun exposure and view trajectory. The surface is made of a two piece folded component
that creates an opening, which adjust according to the sun path, as well as opens up specific view for the people using the facilities.

A Parametric Exploration of Surfacing Light

Critic: Dr. Lucky Tsiah
Year 4: Fall 2012

The idea of a folding light came from the inspiration of paper

folding; the initial study began with a study of varying ways of
how to fold paper. Upon finding a paper folding method of interest I began to specify the idea by perforating the paper to allow
light to pass through the material, where the panels are more

flat the perforations become larger to let more light through and
they become smaller as the fold becomes tighter.
Materials of Lighting Fixture: The lamp is made from a folded
and perforated watercolor paper. The light housing is acrylic that

Urban Infill Washington Square
Critic: Tom Smith
Year 4: Fall 2012
Partners: Genna Reckenberger

The New York Hotel Infill takes place along 5th Ave. near Washington Square Park. This 3 week proposal looked at how to begin plugging a singular architecture into the complex matrix of
Manhattan. The overall driving force of the project was to take
the conventional space of a building core and expand it to the
point where it becomes a vertical public atrium. After given the
site parameters the realization for my colleague and I was there
was minimal views over looking the street and park. The con-

cept was to look in rather than out and the vertical atrium would
enforce this while bringing light into the space, and add a sense
of community to people living or temporarily staying in the hotel.
The carving and extruding of large spatial volumes came from
the inspiration of how the city works in plan and elevation with a
variety of carved and extruded spaces. These volumes become
the public spaces and amenities (lobby, deck/pool, piano bar)
for the occupants of the hotel.

How to connect two seperate

districts in an urban area?
The two inspirational influences of the project came from the
phenomena of light condition of the residential towers on one
side, and the high rise office district on the other. The other inspiration came from the five mountain ranges that run throughout
the Chongqing area as the light and shadow condition is greatly
affects urban lifestyle in China.
Enforcing the idea of horizontal light
by creating a grid set by the parameters of the topography and programmatic use.

Residential Light Condition

Located in Shibanpo and near the Tongyuan Gate, at the highest

point within the strong mountainous topography, the Daqiangba
Water Plant was the first formal large-scale water plant in Chongqing. Historically it illuminated a majority of the Shibanpo District,
preserving the memory and presence in the master plan was a
major consideration.

The initial analysis of the site started with trying to find the morphological significance

use, move, and dwell in Shibanpo.

The driving force of the master plan proposal for the Shibanpo area was to create an urban condition that connected to its surroundings by setting up parameters that would link the site to similar
light experiences both in day and at night, and giving a priority to the water tower which originally
had been a strong source of light that created a sense of community of the Shibanpo District.

The Urban Block Proposal takes place in the Clinton district of

Manhattan and after visiting the site and its surrounding context my
