Located on the highway entrance to Cambridge, MA, the site currently consists
of low-rise offices, a motel, a bowling alley, an abandoned nightclub and
brownfield lots adjacent to wetlands and a natural reserve. The Urban Farm
consits of two buildings, one being a hydroponic high-rise and the other a low
rise facility and mixed use building. The project is designed to be a cohesive
element between nature and society in the sense that it acts as a threshold
between the two, allowing for the public to enjoy the building itself while re-
storing and powering its surrounding area. Energy is produced through passive
design, such as wind turbines and photovoltaics, and a closed-loop organic
cycle which produces methane and biodiesel used for powering the machines
necessary to grow the produce.

This project is a building for the Wellesley
College Printing Press consisting of a print-
ing facility, design center and office space,
facility services, a lecture hall, bookstore
and public gathering space. The program
is split into two entities, the lecture hall,
bookstore, and public space acting as a
hub for the site while the design and pro-
duction facility acts as a bridge connecting
the dorms to the Davis Museum by a roof
garden path. Careful attention was placed
to minimize disturbance to the site; which
is a meadow which has seasonal activ-
ity, so no trees were removed and the
building is elevated to allow for the flow
of water and to maximize passive cooling
strategies.

A housing complex in downtown Salem, MA, this building is designed to be symbol for civic interaction of a progressive culture
in a historic district. Directly across from the Old Town Hall, modular pods are organized in a skip-stop circulation system con-
nected by open lobbies and hallways. The street front consists of retail, residential, and mixed use. The facade of the bulding is a
representation of the geometry of the space, and creates a texture which produces outdoor space and shading while reflecting
different angles of the city. The building surounds the site in a way to create
public entry to an elevated plaza housing a community center and sport facility.

                     In contrast to the Renaissance
                     Architecture which defines Flor-
                     ence’s architectural landscape,
                     this cafe is an abstract homage
                     to its surroundings. Biomorphic-
                     ally shaped artificial trees serve
                     as canopies, lights, and outdoor
                     seating. A mirrored cube reflects
                     the city around it as well as the
                     surreal forest creating an illusion
                     that the building itself is invisible
                     during the day. The interior of
                     the cube resembles the language
                     of the artifical trees in that it is a
                     biomorphic element interjected
                     with strict geometry.

Cafe in Florence
Environmental Design - Paola Giaconia
Studio Arts Center International - Florence, ITaly - Fall 2005
                     In its ordinary state the cafe is shaped as
                     a cube, but when ventilation is necessary
                     the quartered facades expand to allow
                     airflow through the building. The cafe
                     sits on a pool to facilitate the immediate
                     cooling of the site and its public, as well
                     as to protect the building’s mechanisms.
                     The interior walls of the building are
                     covered with LEDs which are operated by
                     a computer system which can be synched
                     with music visualizations, ambience
                     lighting, and informational display. The
                     building itself is designed to be a beacon
                     for the neighborhood: a surrealist forest
                     during the day and a glowing entity of
                     energy during the night. Its cubic nature
                     reflects the perpendicularity of its geom-
                     etry, but that is quickly destroyed as the
                     facade opens revealing its biomorphic
                     core and altering the angles of reflection.

                                                     The existing site of an abandoned train station situated on a marginal area of
                                                     the city of florence, this site was transformed into a cultural district includ-

                                                     church. The intent was to bring cultural and economic growth to an area which
                                                     was devoid of social stimulus and addressing the needs of the neighbors and
                                                     residents in terms of quality of life, pedestrian and vehicular transportation,

The church is designed to be a
cohesive element between urban
forces. The flow of human energy,
whether it is spiritually, commer-
cially, or habitually driven, will
occur through the site and the
building is prepared to be respon-
sive and adaptive to the necessary
program.

The building aids in the spiritual
enlightenment of its occupants by
physically creating an illusion of
walking on water and taking flight.
As a person aproaches the water-
fall altar, the glass beneath their
feet elevates them over water
flowing at a steeper angle than the
floor plane.

Located in Evan’s Way Park in Boston,
Massachusetts, across the street from the
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, this
pavilion is designed specifically for John
Singer Sargent’s masterpiece El Jaleo. The
assignment consisted of arranging three
rectilinear rooms of determined dimen-
sions adjacent to each other with at least
one change in level. The result is an inter-
section of the volumes, each of a different
material which convey a different mean-
ing (brick=transition, granite=reflection,
alabaster=spectacle) leading the viewer
throughout the stages of the pavilion until
the exit which is a recessed platform in
the park where public dance and music
can be held.

                                   The design of the pavillion’s intent is to
                                   portray a feeling of intimacy and arousal. As
                                   the viewer meanders through the volumes,
                                   they transition from a public park, to a brick
                                   lobby, a reflective room of preparation,
                                   until finally entering the dance. Viewers
                                   can appreciate the masterpiece and upon
                                   leaving see the reflection of themselves
                                   with the painting behind them, ensuring
                                   the memory of participation in the grand
                                   experience. The materiality represents the
                                   Spanish dance of Flamenco by resembling
                                   the beauty, mystery, and energy of the
                                   forbidden dance.

                                   This assigment consisted of designing the progression through an addition to
                                   an existing museum. Two paintings were assigned, and the dimensions of the
                                   rooms were given, and we were to explain our design reason in relation to the
                                   paintings. Van der Weyden’s painting has multiple vanishing points, creating an
                                   illusion depending on what angle one looks at it. That is why it is extruded from
                                   the wall as well as why it can be viewed form different heights and distances.
                                   Sargent’s painting is dark and unbalanced, so the room housing it is backlit from
                5’
                                   the previous room as well as a small skylight in the back of the room. The transi-
                                   tion between the paintings is designed to maladjust the eyes by providing ample
                                   daylight so the effect of transition will be exagerated, making Van der Weyden’s
                                   painting more surreal and Sargent’s painting more obscure.

                             The addition is designed to provide
                             various spaces within itself in the

 The purpose of this assigment was to display the key elements of the Boston Public Library in terms of circulation,
 structure, function, and ornamentation. Students were sent out to do field studies of the building and analyze the
 data to then replicate it manually. Specific focus was placed on the entrance lobby and the trajectory to the reading
 room. Due to their complexity, the drawings were done on many layers of trace paper, later to be transposed into
 design vellum.
