Workshop conducted at the 2014 CAADRIA Conference
The Rice Paper Quilt was a workshop run at the Kyoto Institute of Technology. It explored how doubly curved screens could be constructed out of paper patches using an incremental construction technique reminiscent of quilting.
A custom program was developed to allow participants to 'grow' their surfaces in a digital simulation. Subsequently patches were printed on local handmade washi rice paper and cut using a digital plotter before being connected together by hand.
Entry for 2010 Sukkah City Competition
Autumn Bloom is a proposal for a sukkah, which is a temporary hut constructed during the Jewish festival of Sukkot. Three petal surfaces, sewn together out of laser-cut canvas, skin a lightweight wooden structure. It forms an private enclosure that shelters occupants from the wind, yet is open to the sky as is customary. Throughout the day, the filigree-like roof casts changing shadow patterns onto the canvas surfaces, animating the interior. The sukkah is designed to be easily assembled and uses inexpensive building materials.
Entry for the 2008 Evolo Skyscraper Competition
Volutes is a design proposal for a skyscraper located in Singapore's Marina Downtown. The key concept is to draw a part of the city’s fabric into the tower. The central core contains a spiraling belt of parks, shops and communal spaces that extend from the street. Six twisting sub-towers surround the core; each has 7 to 12 story clusters of apartments distributed through it. Sky bridges link these private residential neighborhoods to the public spaces at rhythmic intervals. The skyscraper opens up at its base to invite people to wander through it.
Volutes was featured in Evolo #2 and published in the book Evolo Skyscrapers.
Entry for the 2011 OISTAT Theatre Architecture Competition
The Sight of Sound re-imagines St. Anna’s, an existing church in Prague, as a house for contemporary audio-visual performances and art. The design proposal preserves the church's existing walls, vaults and roof structure. Two new spaces are introduced: an acoustically tuned 150-seat theatre on the upper level; and an exhibition space for sound art installations on the ground floor. Suspended LED nets line the theatre's walls, while projection systems are installed in the apse. St. Anna's provides musicians and artists with a venue to stage immersive performances that integrate sound and vision.
The Sight of Sound received a merit prize and was exhibited at the 2011 Prague Quadrennial.
