The design team was asked to perform a space program study for expanding and consolidating spaces currently in the IDC and the College of Environmental Design, building 7, as well as a site planning study. The information gathered and feedback provided through this interactive process established a roadmap from which the design team obtained inspiration. The goal is to describe a vision which supports the unique architecture program, allows for growth, and expresses the University’s culture while utilizing cost-effective planning concepts. Two phases were identified for the IDC Expansion: Phase I is 34,000 sf and includes a new studio workspace for students as well as instructional space and faculty offices. Phase II is a 5,000 sf lecture space that provides a street and campus frontage of the IDC.Aerial of CPP Design CenterView from Citrus LaneInterior View of Studio SpaceHistoric Campus ContextPhase I Expansion: 34,150 SFStreet & University FrontageSun MovementPre-Engineered with Slope Facing SouthConnecting Extents of CollegeFault LinesWater Collection / Sustainable StrategiesGallery as ConnectorCampus Access & ConnectivityPhase II Expansion: 7,846 SFFull Build Out 41,976 SFPositive Experiences at CPP Department of ArchitectureWhat Do You Think Makes the Department of Architecture Unique?Negative Experiences at CPP Department of ArchitectureWhat Features of an Improved CPP Design Center Would Make You Proud?Student & Alumni Responses05LA URBANA CULTURA | THESIS LOS ANGELES, CAThe Tower creates a juxtaposition between the integration of the built environment and nature. Los Angeles is known as a melting pot, an amalgamation of cultures and arts. The Tower is a collaboration of the arts and cultures; housing museums ranging from concert halls to cultural history and modern art essentially becoming a Cultural Hub for the city of Los Angeles. The city was previously the home of various urban farms but as the city developed the urban farms were demolished. The Skyscraper aims to essentially give the city the farms it has lost while simultaneously creating a green and sustainable ecosystem. The Skyscraper ultimately becomes the incubator for urban farming in Los Angeles and a node for cultural exploration. The urban farm in the tower is a call for an urban revolution in reclaiming the city in the name of nature. The Faรงade of the LA Urban Cultura is a critique of the conventional building envelopes that simply provide enclosure and is two-dimensional. The skyscraper will serve as an environmental vessel that drives conservation and will unite humans, the environment, and the urban condition. The air quality of Los Angeles is of poor quality. The air we breathe can ultimately lead to illness. The North & East facade of the Cultural Tower aims to minimize the pollutants in our environment , recycling the air from the nearby freeway and the surrounding winds and releasing it as natural ventilation for the tower and its patrons. The South & West Facade collect solar energy through the use of PV panels for reusable energy.North & East Facade AssemblySouth & West Facade AssemblySolar Study:North FacadeNorth ElevationSouth FacadeSouth ElevationEast FacadeEast ElevationWest FacadeWest Elevation1.

In the analysis of the site three distinct areas were identified: industrial, residential, and an unoccupied spine that travels from the iconic bridge of the city to the fish market. This division in the program is emphasized by an existing hill. This hotel occupies this spine and connects the top residential area to the below industrial zone. and furthermore reinforces the linearity of the spine of the city. The landscape condition allows the hotel to be open to the public and while the hotel has a sense of privacy the interventions on the landscape are for the community of San Pedro. A louver system was used as a facade technique and solar shading system and break the orthogonal form of the hotel.Longitudinal SectionRendered Section DetailGrasshopper Script | Parametric LouversCross SectionBasement Floor Plan07THE MALL OF HISTORIC BASTAKIYA DUBAI, UAEThe Mall of Historic Bastakiya is directly inspired by the ancient city and celebrates the local culture and architecture through an aggregation of buildings that ultimately function as one. The unique geometry of the Mall creates a rooftop condition shaded by a canopy that spans the site to accommodate for the hot weather of Dubai. The Souk located in the groound floor mimics the traditional souks found in Dubai with an exterior circulation that allows for exploration of products for consumers. The Souk is divided into sections depending on product to ensure an efficient and unique shopping experience. The Mall of Bastakiya encourages exterior interaction while simultaneously shading consumers from the local heat. The Mall attracts locals and tourist by its high end retail and its access to local products.Exterior Render | Overlooking the Historic Mall of BastakiyaInterior Render | Dior BoutiqueInterior Render | BoutiqueConcept Diagram SPICE SOUKKBAI SOUBUR DUHISTORIC BASTAKIYADUBAI MUSEUMSite AnalysisAxonometric DrawingExterior Render | Rooftop Lounge & CanopyLongitudinal Sectional PerspectiveExterior Render | Shisha Lounge39A3A 1 2 1 3110 7122 112637BB 5115242C22C92 11228221.
