    Architecture Design Studio IV - San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (B.A.R.T) design project- Strong Structural focus (i.e. height and limitations of Material)- Strong sustainable design theme - Accessibility (ADA) - Function: Train station, security, height limitation, pay stations, bathrooms- Site planning (sun, wind, average temperature, etc...)

    - Above is light shelf paneling system that was designed using the sun path diagram for the San Francisco Bay Area. These light panels were designed to allow the winter sun to penetrate through the structure to warm up the facility and as image 2 shows it does not allow the high sun angles associated with summer in. Image 3 shows the different sun paths the sun takes throughout the year.

    Shows both the amphitheater and the Lobby space connecting to the original building highlighted in red

    Shows the outdoor spaces that can be used for selling merchandize or other events while being protected from the elements by the solar panels

    Shows the transitional space from parking to site Shows how the design relates to the site

  • 22 Shows the how the crescent shaped truss system meets the concrete beams

    Shows the interior space of the theater with the acoustic side paneling

    Shows a balcony view towards the main stage




  • 23- These images show how these light shelves play with the light allowing light to penetrate during the winter time and does not allow it to enter during the sum-mer time. There are many ways I used the panels to play with the lights throughout the project.

  • 24

    Shows the outside portion of the multipurpose event space. It also shows the theme of playing with the sun light

    Shows the staircase as a transitional space

    Shows this transition from an art gallery to even space. The light when it hits the wire gives it a feeling of importance

    Shows the interior portion of the event space

    Architecture Design Studio VI - Study Abroad (Paris, France) - French Classicism Architecture- In order to enhance Pariss reputation as a world center of fash-ion by making the Quartier du Caire a center for the study of and advancement of both traditional and experimental textiles, we propose to create a Place that emphasizes important program-matic requirements of the competition. We propose large, regu-lar geometries that create public spaces within which major and minor axes direct the attention of people to focal points of the Places program. These large public spaces will provide a setting in which we create hierarchy among the various programmatic requirements. We propose using trees to emphasize direction and to provide destination and to emphasize the hierarchies within the Place.

    - Software Used: Rhinoceros , Photoshop CS5 , Illustrator CS5

    - This Image shows the pro-portioning system and base design for the entire project. This facade surrounds the liturgical Space and the IMC.

  • 31 We propose to make a large rectilinear Place that extends southward from the Egyptian faade to the Rue Reaumur. The place will incorporate paths that make a cross axes, north to south and east to west. The east-west axis extends into rectangular places that provide a setting for the IMC to the east and the liturgical space to the west. The axis to the IMC is lined with an alle of lindens trimmed to take the shape of a continuous verti-cal wall, thus emphasizing the axis and the faade of the IMC. The liturgical space alee of trees covers a partial amount of the faade in order to show more importance to the IMC. The IMC and liturgical space harmonize with the place without taking too much focus away from the Place which was one of the objectives. The Places was placed away from the Egyptian faade because it was meant to keep the integrity of the historic preservation by not tearing into the building or its surrounding build-ing, by doing so it gave more freedom to explore options without having to avoid that obstacle.
