I dream on
blank pages.

Strategy 1:
I imagine this tall skyscraper as being able to fit a small city. The structure consists of a rotating set of pods. The larger structure rotates to minimize casting of shadows. The floors within each pod rotate to allow inhabitants to stay level with gravity.

Strategy 2:
To maximize sunlight on the surface of Earth (still inhabited), the pods are attached to very tall towers, with each pod arranged in a {fibonacci modulo 12} arrangement to allow for maximum sunlight penetration. With these two strategies, the arcology skyscraper mimics the layout of a forest.

Architecture is shaping the ground and environment. We have used the earth and its flora and fauna to make buildings for all of history. However, we have never really controlled nature, only contorted it. This was an early thought on growing a house, either coaxing trees to grow a certain way using light or through genetic modification.

We need one.

This is an idea to create a flipbook as a commercial for a sports car. The flipbook shows an empty highway road on all pages except one, where a blurry photo of the car is shown. Does anyone know a car company I can pitch to?

This is an idea I had for renovating the Green Atrium. Broken lamps are reused for ambient lighting. Nature is introduced via the funny looking trees made of shoji paper wrapped around a frame. The reflection off the paper would make the space warmer.

This is a quick redesign of the class I took with Allison Williams (AECOM). Curves are introduced to create dynamic spaces, and the entrances are between the "hulls" of each segment.

This is a re-redesign of a class (see *quad) with Bryan Shiles (WRNS). It does not stray far from our original scheme of ribbons and courtyards. However, the program now digs into the site and respects existing campus axes.

The louvres in this vertical garden are pointed towards the entrances. When a pedestrian enters, his vision thus extends beyond the garden. However, at most other points in the garden, his vision is limited because the panels are no longer pointed at him.
