    Last Supper

  • Home to the outdoor music area and animated by visualizations from animators and filmmakers, the Aural Garden featured an architectural installation designed and built by Ryan Lewandowski, Daria Supp, and Lili Trenkova. One of the new programs at the 5th annual Last Supper Festival, the canopy installation defines a new and more intimate, yet open space within the canyon-like alley of the outdoor area at the 3rd Ward. The black-lit 3000ft of cotton string weaves a net-like surface that shifts in form and definition as the perspective changes. While basing itself off the hyperbolic surface that is created with the spandex shapes suspended above, this fluctuation creates an energy in the space that plays with the music and dance atmosphere, creating a synthesis of the mediums and demonstrating the transformative effects of architecture.

    Located in the culturally segregated neighborhood of Crown Heights, this multi-function design problem was aimed at understanding a complex past in order to address its current and future potential. Looking to the surrounding urban context, I found inspiration in the unifying visual rhythm of the neighboring brownstones. By reflecting this rhythm at the scale of the buildings program, the intent of the design is to establish a unifying dialogue between community members through its use.

    ARCH 301 ARTS & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CENTER Associate Professor William Williams Fall 2006Brooklyn, NY

  • A community kitchen and food co-op are the primary programmatic drivers within the design. Through the personal act of cooking and having a meal together, stories and lessons are shared creating a cross-cultural dialogue that brings the different local cultures together. The table for cooking and eating becomes a symbol for this interaction and is carried throughout the rest of the building to facilitate its many other functions.

    Taking advantage of the sectional nature of the design, a physical model was created using laminated layers of chipboard and basswood. The building was constructed in removeable units of a structural band and its accompanied programmatic ribbon to create an interactive viewing experience that allows one to dissect the internal workings of the building.

  • Working in collaboration with COPESCO, the World Bank, and the city of Ollantaytambo, our semester studio was the beginning of a multi-year effort towards studying the threats from increased tourism in the Sacred Valley. The ancient town of Ollantaytambo sits at a critical juncture between the bus and rail system for tourists en route to Machu Picchu and faces growing international economic pressures. Our work intended to propose a schematic master plan and new train station that accommodates international interests and local needs while preserving the towns physical history and cultural ideals.

    The devised masterplan proposed relocating the rail line to the opposite side of the river, allowing a new road for the heavy traffic to take its place. With the new rail station located down river near the more modern town of Rumira, the traffic can be rerouted around Ollantaytambo instead of through it and encourages future growth to occur away from the historical town center.

    During out time in Ollantaytambo, we were encouraged to explore new methods of recording our experience. Focusing on the sounds of traffic, water, and music, I recorded numerous video clips throughout the town. This audio experience was then translated into a diagramatic timeline of my trip, inspired by the quipu, a traditional Incan method of record keeping with knots.

    Designed in collaboration with Scott Mitchell and Sebasitjan Jemec, we sited the train station down river from the town to establish a new node for commercial activity, alleviating traffic through the sensitive Incan sites. Reminiscent of Incan terracing and the local market vernacular, the station is spatially organized by a series of rammed earth walls and glu-lam structures to create a low impact design that integrates itself into the surrounding landscape. The addition of a wide cathedral like stair running the length of the station becomes a place of interaction and provides an open connection to the neighboring marketplace.

  • ARCH 544SWISS RE 3D STUDYAssociate Professor Charles Menefee Spring 2007Charlottesville, VA

    Through focusing on the geometrical reasoning behind natural and man-made structures, this course taught a conceptual and hands-on approach towards understanding 3D modeling and the spatial organization of the world around us. Each student selected a building as the subject of their assignments for the semester to first better understand its basic geometrical principles with the end goal of recreating an accurate design digitally. I chose the Swiss Re by Norman Foster due to its complexity and parametric rationale behind the design. My studies focused on the facade and structure producing an advanced understanding of the geometrical logic behind the design.

  • The intent of this course was to learn the underlying principles of parametric modeling and various methods to fabricate these ideas quickly and efficiently. In utilizing Microstations Generative Components, we studied a myriad of pattern making, fractal designs, and complex surfaces. These studies developed into a personal exploration of wrapping a double sin-curve surface around a cylinder. Once acheived, I created a representation through laminating multiple sections of cardboard to produce its form, which has since become a favorite lamp shade.

  • The cardboard lampshades visual effect due to its corrugated rotation inspired my final project, a study of visual focal points of transparency within a wall structure. By creating a point of influence, the wall structure can shift its directionality to accomodate a specific focal view point while maintaining a set form. While an early study, this conceptual idea began a personal inquiry of the human interface with a traditionally static element and the possible active building systems to create such an ability.

    The semester long project was an investigation of public and private spaces through the experience of the student at the University of Virginia. The building becomes an active interface between the student at study and the student in transit through a dynamic facade created by individualized study spaces.

    concept site plan

  • ryan b. lewandowski / academic / 2007

    Through a mixed process of intense writing and sketching, the projects concept, program, and site emerged and developed. Anchoring itself on the backside of the psychology building along a popular student shortcut, the building extends through a wooded site that is the backyard for multiple existing university buildings. Viewed as a unique remnant of the natural terrain, the overall site strategy was to connect the student with their surroundings through a series of new paths and visual connections from the elevated study spaces.

  • Considering the individual study carrel as the most basic unit of the design, I investigated the materials, light qualities, and spatial relationships with the goal of designing a space that can be personalized by manually changing its spatial and light qualities. The carrel serves as a module of space that is expanded to accommodate small group spaces and larger public lounges throughout the building.

    Due to the varied terrain across the site, the three main exterior spaces have unique landscape strategies. A wooded lawn on the high ground, boulders on the hillside, and a wetland that maintains an existing daylighted drainage field.

  • In a summer long design/build project with former classmate Sebastijan Jemec, the concept of transparency is used to display both the structure of the design and the international technology used to create the exhibited Rome Reborn project.

    Given two weeks for construction, the booth was fabricated offsite and brought in for installation, requiring that it be modular, light weight, and of efficient construction methods.

  • In an office wide challenge to re-use/re-purpose/recycle the now obsolete Polshek Partnership business cards in a creative way, this lamp is made of 75 business cards with a small plexi bracket. The folded design utilizes the single orange side of the cards to produce an warm glow over the white exterior. A modular system of folding was used and by modifying the angle or direction of the folds, each of the three rows become unique.

    The design was awarded First Place by the partners.

  • The NYU Langone Medical Center exists on a superblock located between First Ave and the East River in Manhattan. Originally planned and designed by SOM in the 40s and 50s, it has been continually added upon throughout its existence. Ennead Architects for the past three years has been working to map out a thirty year development plan to add a fully integrated center for acute clinical care and to the design of the Kimmel Pavilion hopsital, which will act as its centerpiece.

    My role in this project for the past two years has been very multi-faceted, although mostly focusing on design. My duties have ranged from completing the masterplan study, concept design for an elevator tower, and currently schematic design of the Kimmel Pavilion.

Through many programmatic and conceptual studies, our understanding of this relationship between a patient and doctor grew.

    ryan b. lewandowski / professional

  • While development would ideally fall along a single line, this type of institutions growth is ultimately driven funds given by a donor and the vision that they may hold. Working in conjunction with CASE Design, we utilized Revits BIM capabilities to construct a 3D spatial/programming model that in real time can accurately calculate the program of the current conditions, as well as play through various building options for the 30-year master plan. Existing buildings and conceptual growth made up a kit of parts that could be plugged into the potential sites of development, creating a flexible tool to be used by the architect and the client to fully understand the medical centers growth potential.

    For this masterplan, I was one of two employees working full time on this and among many other aspects was in charge of working with CASE Design to create and manage the Revit Model.

    This project will add four new elevators to the outdated Tisch Hospital to improve the flow and quality of experience for patients and visitors. Sited in the central courtyard of the complex, the elevator cabs will include windows that provide a view of the city and river during the ride.My role involved doing a series of facade studies during the concept design phase. Working one on one with a design associate, we discussed the idea of a pixilated pattern of glass that responded to a need for increased shading at the top. From here I investigated panel sizes/ratios and surface patterns through creating elevation drawings, 3D renderings, and elevator cab animations so that each aspect of overall identity and user experience was fully considered.

  • I have come to value photography for its simple, yet unique, ability to frame the world as I see it. My eyes as an architect are constantly exploring my surroundings to better understand the chaos of the modern city and find moments of beauty or clarity that are often overlooked by others.

    In this first series, I have looked to the monolithic glass towers of New York City as a canvas and frame. By focusing on what lies beyond this minimal surface, I have found what I view as a reinterpretation of its own surroundings.

    It is my hope that in creating these compositions of subtle yet dramatic beauty, which represent an experience of our reality, might serve as an inspiration for others to look forward with a new perspective.
