Relevant works and prevous internships

I am currently a fourth year Architecture student at Carnegie Mellon University, in addition, I am also pursuing a minor in Business Administration with a strong interest in economic empowerment through volunteer works with Global Business Bridgades Panama. Having lived in New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, Pittsburgh and Barcelona, international exposure has allowed me to easily adapt in fast paced environments and interact with diverse groups of individuals. Over the past few semesters, I have broadened my background in architectural design through works with student organiza-tions, academic projects, and internships with Leigh & Orange Ltd. in Hong Kong and Unitown Design in Shanghai, China. The following projects highlight my developing interest in architecture that is responsive to urban context through material exploration.

The boathouse is located along an active running and biking path across the Allegheny river from the vibrant Strip District in Pittsburgh. The active path influenced a flowing design, carved between the two dirt streams of running paths. An existing outlook to a great view of the river is adja-cent to the boathouse, reinforcing the notion to take a break from biking. The site is sixteen feet above the river’s water level, on a hundred-year flood plane. The ramp to the water dips under-neath one of the existing running paths, forming a tunnel with a view of the only water’s surface. The unconditioned boat house serves as a rental shop for kayaks.

CONTINUOUS ACCESSIBILITY

The boat house’s real beauty is in the roof. Bent wood beams flow overhead the users, directing them to the water. The need for distracting cross bracing is mitigated by secondary beams which bounce back and forth between beams. Fiberglass channels run down the length of each pair of beams, guiding rain water down the ramp and away from the dirt paths. The kayaks are stored vertically, leaning against the thick southern wall which acts as a thermal mass to help cool the boathouse. As kayaks are rented and removed, a slit of southern light is revealed.

ACTCCaluminum city terrace COMMUNITY CENTER[ ]

Looking at the design intentions of Gropious and Brauer's Aluminum Terrace City Housing scheme in New Kensington, PA, the design approach to this community center draws cues from the existing building networks as well as the figure ground relationship to the site.

The project is orientated to mirror the figure ground V by directing out to New Kensington to take advantage of the views created from being on top of the flat plane along the hill edge. In addition, it is orientated to shield against the strong western winds and southern sun.

The project is split programmatically into three wings with the parking lot entrance leading into the entry plaza with fitness and gymnasium on the left and the main multi purpose func-tions on the right extending into the hill edge.

CROSS SECTION Awall details AA & BB[ ]

The primary structure of my building is a steel beam and truss construction with the facades being primarily stick glazing.With the service areas of the buildings located along the left edge in both blocks, the choice of the brick material on the fitness wing and the wood siding on the multipurpose wing was to reflect the existing material palette used by the original architects.

The building uses a hvac system as it acts also as a mechanically assisted ventilation to provide thermal mass cooling by drawing cool air from the eastern trees. Passive solar heating is also utilized from the mesh screens and over hangs on the south facing facades as well as concrete floor for radiant heating.

From the exploration of colors and views through an aperture unit module, the classroom design aims to create a dialogue between students and the environment.The idea of interactivity is encouraged by the presence of a series of cubbie like aperture units used in both outdoor and indoor settings.

The module is used as storage and furniture units in the interior, while in the exterior, they are utilized as screening and terrace seating units. By displacing something familiar to the kids such as a cubbie and placing them in nature, the goal is to create connections between learning and the environment and between the di�erent age groups.

As the design chair for the Asian Students Association’s spring 2012 carnival booth, I had the opportunity to work with Carne-gie Mellon Students in other disciplines such as Civil Engineering, Design and Electrical Engineer-ing. The theme of the two story structure was Looney Tunes with the interior reflecting many of the cartoon characters..
