Architecture is a form of knowledge and each project should represent a significant contribution to this body of work.

Architectural theory is a form of mediation; the act of establishing relationships between cultural constructs and spatial constructions.

Architecture is an investigation of the culture in which it exists and therefore should provide a commentary or critique much like literature or cinema. It challenges convention and provokes a response.

The diagram on the following page illustrates how cultural, theoretical, and contextural issues influence a design concept. Through intuition, research, and interpretation, the concept manifests in the design scheme(s). This process

is repeated and refined with each iteration. An evolving process ensures

continued relevance.

A realized project (material or theoretical) becomes part of the body of work

that encompasses mankind’s contribution to culture through architecture.

Designing by Conviction :

1 | Introduction

While every concept is influenced by numerous external (general) and internal (project specific) forces, a

While every concept is influenced by numerous external (general) and internal (project specific) forces, a well designed project must show that the following 5 key elements are understood and applied in cohesive way.

Tectonics The poetic expression through a meaningful arrangement of construction and structure. Tectonics can be thought of as the intersection of poesis and techne. Poesis is the creation by means of thought and action and techne the knowledge or skill (craftsmanship) by which one creates something.

Program / Event

The action of human beings (culture) within a space and therefore it is the framework where our culture, or any culture plays itself out.

Program is the reason for a building to exist. within it.

The intersection of built physical artifact with the event (human action and interaction)

Experience The perception (through the senses), understanding (through the mind) and remembering (through the memory) of a space based on its materiality. The architect has no control over the human reaction, he or she can only suggest through architectural means (materiality, light, scale, color, etc)

Context Context refers to the morphological (form and shape), typological (typologies: landscapes, cities, buildings) and cultural conditions surrounding the project immediately and in a larger sense. (adjacent buildings - street - neighborhood - city).

Sustainability A characteristic of a process or state that can be maintained at a certain level indefinitely. The term, in its environmental usage, refers to the potential longevity of vital human ecological support systems, such as the planet’s climatic system, systems of agriculture, industry, forestry and fisheries, and human communities in general and the various systems on which they depend.

The goal of the project was to provide an appropriate example of contemporary architecture in a historic setting by reinterpreting the heritage of the city. A holistic understanding of the urban landscape can be achieved through a comparative framework of historical geographies. Historical geographies are ‘urban artifacts’ that are analyzed formally, functionally, and through representation to fully understand their interrelationships and links with social practice. In other word, the cityscape can be understood and reinterpreted in order to influence social structures.

Establish heritage through a ‘Living Architectural Approach’

The project is designed with multi-valent components that become both building systems and architecture. Within this hybrid system, the components build upon each other to achieve the goal of a net zero energy building. The second and equally important goal was to create a building that enhances the campus experience by providing multi- use student spaces. The campus landscape [berms and ramps] inspired the continuous surface running through the building, acting as a signifier for the concept of integration and response to the environment. Moreover, it is an organizational device to structure program and circulation. The desert context inspired a circulation sequence that decompresses the user through a series of decreasing temperatures. The symbiosis between architecture and technology informed the visual expression of the project, i.e. the language sustainable systems.

The study of four different climates in the U.S. yielded vastly different conditions and opportunities for passive energy systems. Conceptual motifs were generated through the combination of various sustainable techniques. Each of the four prototypes adapted to seasonal conditions as well as the often vast environmental changes that occur between day and night. Certain passive systems could be derived by the analysis of vernacular architecture.

The new Scottsdale YMCA operates as a destination feature / amenity and a connective infrastructure for the area surrounding southern Scottsdale. Integration of structure with space, program, and tectonics were considered key issues in the synthesis of the complex program. The decaying neighborhood is comprised of a featureless urban grid that impedes the proliferation of the community. The solution utilizes porosity and connectivity by creating a permeable, artificial landform. The new landscape is open

to the public, allowing pedestrians to become spectator or

participant. The canopy engages the context, extending

a pedestrian walkway through the YMCA and into a

public park. The bus stop and future light-rail station are integrated into the public spaces housed under the canopy.

As an artificial interruption in the grid of Scottsdale, the

YMCA acts as a beacon within the community.

Autopia The exercise dealt with the unique and varied urban landscapes of California. The first objective was to identify an aspect of the urban landscape and build a generic site model to represent a sense of place. The second objective was to create a parti that would react to and enhance the architectural milieu of the context.

Lever House Addition The Lever House was an important project for the use of glass curtain wall technology. The project brief required a 50% increase in floor area for Gordon Bunshaft’s landmark high rise.

Community Center An enclosure is a complex building system that separates interior from exterior, sheltering the activities within. Architecture combines the concepts of threshold, layering, transparency, solid-void, environmental control, and structure to create the building envelope. A gymnasium/natatorium program was used as a basis for exploration of the envelope.

The new recreation center was the centerpiece for the multi-phase Peoria Rio Vista Park. The design nestles the program requirements on a parcel of land that extends into the existing lake. The project enhances the park circulation paths by creating a public walkway through the building, and extending over a pedestrian bridge. The steel truss pedestrian bridge was conceived as a program space, giving visitors adequate room to congregate. The program is skillfully arrange to eliminate corridors and to separate the public zones from the membership zones. The program included a gymnasium, racquetball courts, fitness space, aerobics and dance rooms, climbing wall, day care, activity zone, classrooms, large multi-use spaces, and a kitchen.

The traditional forms of the LDS Institute of Religion are rendered in the contemporary context of Arizona State University and its desert climate through materiality and physical connectivity. Pedestrian plazas, circulation paths, and outdoor amphitheaters connect the program to the surrounding campus. The building forms a connecting plaza with it’s adjacent 600-vehicle parking structure. Brick masonry, precast concrete, horizontal aluminum louvers, and glazing are combined to realize the building entries as transparent lanterns. The project includes a gymnasium, 400-seat chapel, multi-use spaces, state of the art class and conference rooms, computer labs, kitchen and dining rooms, and administrative spaces.

In 2007, The Park Ministries, the largest African American congregation in North Carolina, purchased the old Charlotte Merchandise Mart to convert into their new ministry center. A primary goal of the project was to unify the disparate elements into a clearly organized sequence of program. The solution looks at each floor plate as a field condition where programmatic elements are arranged for optimal efficiencies. Architectural pieces within the kit of parts included circulation devices, corridor thresholds, and public lounges. These elements acted to organize and bridge programs, define circulation paths, create public spaces, and define a new identity for the new owners. Rather than approaching the building as a blank slate, the kit of parts strategy was surgical in its application. Accent colors, spatial lighting, and stenciled signage supplement architectural organization devices. Ultimately, the complex familiar to Charlotte is visually and organizationally redefined to reflect the client’s mission.

The architect’s education abroad is critical to the understanding of culture and the physical apparatus in which they function. Translating ideas into physical space is the architect’s raison d’être. While the study of architecture was a focus, the holistic cultural experience embraced cuisine, fashion, lifestyle, art, and language.

Photography :

“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”

-Dorothea Lange

Photography is both a valuable tool of analysis and an important means of capturing the spirit of a place or thing. In architecture, drawings and models express the potential qualities of an unrealized project while photography records the actual experience of the built environment. Photography as art incorporates spatiality, perspective, scale, and other design concepts.

How can a small, temporary pavilion reach a wide audience?

The answer lies in the strategic placement within the city fabric and capitalizing on multiple urban conditions simultaneously. The concept of the threshold naturally deals with the intersection of multiple conditions and therefore, anything that occupies the threshold has access to two or more conditions. In the case of an exhibition pavilion, placement within an urban threshold condition will make it accessible to multiple user groups (park-users, pedestrian and vehicles). First, various threshold conditions are identified (park-street, pier-street, etc). Next, the pavilion utilizes the following architectural means to reinforce the threshold concept.

It is a place for remembering, learning, and inspiring hope and

reconciliation. It is a symbolic sculpture composed of sound elements (existing concrete pads) and two iconic forms (the horizontal and vertical bars). The composition can be read as a journey towards hope. The horizontal (twisted) bar is

a metaphor for the arduous journey of the contrabands and

freedmen from slavery to freedom. The vertical form signifies hope and reconciliation by giving the participant a new perspective.

The horizontal bar that hovers delicately above the ground, only touching it at the existing concrete pads allows the visitor to get close to individual graves. This proximity allows the observer to become a participant and engage with the personal history of the individuals buried at the cemetery. The connection is made deeper by the appearance of individual names branded on the wood plank floor.

Seen from a distance, the tower becomes a landmark of the history and existence of the cemetery, and pays homage to those that have been forgotten. Additionally, the tower is meant to be a symbol of hope.

In May 2008, TU Delft lost an important landmark on the campus, the Bouwkunde building. A building, beautiful in its own right, but not recognized by all, an inaccessible island. It was blunt, direct, and was a home to the architectural community. The old Bouwkunde was a beloved fortress.

The new Bouwkunde is the antithesis of the ivory tower. It will be big. It will be bold. It will be the new home for creative anarchy. The new building will connect the architectural community to itself and to the rest of the campus. The core concepts for the 0.9 Hectare proposal is two fold:

[1] collapse individual studio distinctions and boundaries by creating a single, cohesive space,
