PROJECT 1: TROMBEHAUS
Architectural Technology V - Unitized Trombe Curtain Wall Analysis and Assembly
Critic: David Wallance
Detailed design development of a unitized curtain wall system that employs embedded hydronic tubing within precast concrete, thermal mass panels to perform as a Modern Trombe Wall System. Precise calculations of the year-round solar path for the building's orientation were analyzed against average temperatures for the Bronx site to determine an optimal sunshade design which effectively turns the passive heating system 'off' during months in which heating is not required. Careful consideration was given for how to integrate this system with the building's structure and construction sequencing.
PROJECT 2: NEW YORK TIMES BUILDING CURTAIN WALL - A collaborative project with Kelly Danz, Jason Roberts, and Lauren Ortega
Animated Analysis of The New York Times Building's Unitized Curtain Wall System
Critic: John Pachuta
A comprehensive analysis of The New York Times Building's unitized curtain wall system - from the fabrication of the individual units, to the construction sequence of their installation, to the integral relationship of the envelope to the mechanical systems of the building.
(Note: Work by Michael H. Marsh begins at 2:17 and includes 'The Unit,' 'The Facade,' and 'The Mechanical' segments. 'The Structure' segment was created by Jason Roberts)
PROJECT 3: ATELIER DEIR GHASSANEH
F'11 Joint Architecture/Preservation Studio, Deir Ghassaneh, West Bank, Palestine
Critics: Konyk + Tung
A modular scaffolding and dormitory system is introduced to vastly expand the capacity of the non-government preservation organization RIWAQ's Conservation Workshops. The system is designed to adapt to the unique spatial conditions of the 24 historic Throne Villages located throughout the West Bank, to facilitate an ongoing international exchange program for architecture students as they collaborate with local craftsmen to survey, design and construct a network of specialized universities throughout the burgeoning new nation.
PROJECT 4: SOLAR PARASITE 'DASHBOARD' INTERFACE
S'11 Columbia Building Intelligence Program (CBIP)
Critic: Scott Marble
A prototype of the 'Dashboard' interface for real-time updates of solar radiation on building surfaces, energy potential for passive heating and ventilation and comparable cost savings as compared to Con-Edison supplied power.
PROJECT 5: S'11 ARCHITECTURAL DAYLIGHTING
Solar Analysis of Henning Larsen's Enghoej Church - Randars, Denmark
Critic: Davidson Norris
An animated solar analysis of Henning Larsen's Enghoej Church
PROJECT 6: 1:1 ENERGY EXCHANGE - A 'BANK AND SPEND' APPROACH TO ENERGY CONSERVATION
Columbia Building Intelligence Program (CBIP) - A collaborative project with Jason Roberts and Nai Wong
Critic: Scott Marble
CATIA used as a parametric tool for evaluating the effect of various building strategies in 'real time.'
PROJECT 7: PALAZZO STATI-MACCARANI Courtyard Animation, Rome, Italy
Research and site survey findings of a Renaissance palazzo.
Critic: Mark Rakatansky
