This project is positioned in Downtown Lincoln, Nebraska, over the old Lincoln Federal building, better known as the Grand Manse. The proposal calls to buy the air rights over the building to accommodate a growing downtown with commercial and residential living. The focus of the project was to use a stacked vertical approach instead of the typical flat horizontal currently displayed in Lincoln.
New York City is where you can meet the world in one place. Residents and visitors bring the richness of multiculturalism from all over the world. However, many issues and inconveniences exist for those whose first language is not English, especially those elderly residents.
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.
The boutique hotel project was a built structure along the PCH highway along the California coast. The concept was to be taken from a chosen city and its culture and history. Roca Hotel is found in Morro Bay California. The town influence came from adventure, the love of the outdoors, and the rock that brought settlers to the town originally. The hotels design influence is bringing the interior and the exterior together, fragmentation of the rock, and natural materials.
