    Document 641.02 // The Rhmann NotebookRecovering Berlin06

    2010. MArch. Columbia University

    critic: Ed Keller

    studio title: Cryptoform, Polytics, Noise

    chosen site: Berlin

    program: traveling EU-HQ

    partners: Lisa Ekle, Danil Nagy

    quick project description: In order to reveal issues of post-empire, the work is situ-

    ated in a projected future, drawing straight lines from the Berlin Wall, War on Terror,

    and progress made in computation technologies and bio-engineering. These lines meet

    in 2040 at a design competition for the traveling headquarters of the European Union

    Presidency of the Council and Cultural Capital of Europe. In a time of fully responsive

    architectural environments, designers were asked to submit entries in the form of

    protocols describing the complex new relationships between architects and technology,

    person to people and people to technology interface. Entries were evaluated by a jury

    discussion followed by online comments. Three of the most provocative entries were

    developed into a vision of their implied outcome.

    competition posters were posted throughout GSAPP and on online venues

  • Desert Strip05

    2009. MArch. Columbia University

    critic: Bjarke Ingels

    studio title: vernacular 2.0

    site: Las Vegas, Nevada

    program: hotel-casino resort, solar updraft

    tower, golf course, country club housing

    quick project description: In a search for vernacular systems, this project adapts the

    most efficient technology at harnessing solar energy in the desert to the context of Las

    Vegas. The idea is to make responsibility spectacular. While this building is so efficient

    that it even manages to spare enough grey water to maintain a golf course turf, and

    generate enough energy for 2000 households and 2000 hotel rooms, it costs the same

    to build as any other newly built casino resort on the strip and makes an aesthetically

    convincing argument to the common developer of this architype.

  • Viral Security04

    2009. MArch. Columbia University

    critic: Hernan Diaz-Alonso

    studio title: cannibal house

    site: Silverlake, Los Angeles

    program: house, zombie remediation

    clinic, mosque, quarantine zone/lab

    quick project description: Architectural standards must adapt to new situations in so-

    ciety. Just like domestic bunkers during the Cold War in America, this project proposes

    an adaptation to a zombie infection. Having watched 28 Days Later and read The Tip-

    ping Point, I developed a system that infects the site with security systems.

  • Gondola Housing03

    2008. MArch. Columbia University

    critic: Michael Bell and Brian Laughlin

    partner:John Becker

    studio title: economic reevaluations

    site: Journal Square, Jersey City

    program: housing, public trasportation, park space

    quick project description: With the economic crisis fresh in our minds, we approached

    the challenge of housing with a search into self sustaining systems. Gondola Housing

    is an independent spatial economy that supports a public system of exchange. Alter-

    nating between transportation and inhabitation, the system evades the line between

    architecture and infrastructure in an effort to reconnect the city to itself. The premise

    is that for the sake of economic efficiency and the optimization of the public realm,

    space is only private when it needs to be.

  • Leaning Matrices02

    2008. MArch. Columbia University

    critic: Mable Wilson

    studio title: particles, density, repetition

    site: Center and Howard St., Chinatown

    program: drawing center

    quick project description: The program is divided into four bodies that address the

    street in different ways but are then fragmented into parts that are interwoven. A

    series of matrix studies produced lessons about degrees of freedom within a striated

    system. The result is a centralized building that distributes into specific activities yet

    shows their integral relationship with each other.

  • Floating Labs01

    2007. MArch. Columbia University

    critic: Janette Kim

    studio title: collapsing atmospheres

    site: pier at Riverside and 129th St.

    program: climatology lab

    quick project description: Climatology is a new type of research, and therefore,

    should not subscribe to predetermined spaces. Floating labs are variable intersections

    between a path system and a material conservation system. These two meet in condi-

    tions that reveal new relationships between the scientist and the object of research,

    and between science and public.
