Air Rights Architecture investigates two formerly forgotten aspects of architecture, the roof and the sky, to reconfigure historical notions that: architecture must primarily touch the ground and large buildings traditionally have flat roofs. The project is situated in a prototypical Midwest urban site with endless opportunities to accommodate changing density patterns.
During the current urbanization, how to integrate new required buildings with all existing conditions is the topic of this project. Especially in a crowed downtown area, cities cannot offer liberal space for new buildings. Horizontal expansion, the cantilever, can be a solution of land scarcity and height limit. This solution provides a possibility of more public space. In the meantime, it provides enough area to satisfy the need of building function.
Children occupying space in uncommon ways; attempting to inhabit a space which is atmospherically, tangibly and materialistically different than the everyday norm, a want to occupy the whimsical. The Cloud House investigates the relationship of the mundane and the whimsical in domestic architecture; the reimagined type of domesticity explores a sensual and experience based approach to create an atmospheric, unique space.
The Wells Lamson Quarry Visitor Center investigates the potential of materials to enhance and influence one’s experience of a place. Set near an abandoned stone quarry in East Barre, Vermont, the project helps the public gain a better understanding of the history, technology, and topographic and ecological impacts of granite quarrying. The program includes a series of artist residences supported by a larger visitor center and memorial space.
