concept for a Butterfly Vivarium

The design consists of a shell structure and obelisk that conjures up Venetian architecture. While the arches present in both structures allude to the Baroque époque, the components of the shell remind one of the colorful Venetian roofs. The Obelisk is a hierarchical element performing as a point of reference at a distance similar to St Mark’s Clocktower. The fact Venice has hosted vanguard architectures throughout its Biennales is reflected in the overall morphology, design method and fabrication technique used here. Planes of water fuse reflections of both the existing and the new.

The design consists of a table generated from a double curved grid structure made of interlocking flat glass. Although the system requires a simple assembly technique for fabrication, the formal outcome reveals qualities of curved glass as well as a degree of complexity in the resulting smooth structure.
The Double Curvature Design has been selected as one of the 30 designs that will be displayed at the temporary exhibition "Re-Craft Design" during the Fuori Salone 2013 (known also as Milano Design Week 2013), one of the most important events in the world related to industrial design and furniture.

Our proposed Collider Activity Center is generated in a hexagonal forcefield from which park and buildings emerge as a result of requisite collisions between program activities. Project morphology is continually expanding and contracting in catalyzing the various hosted activities: it enables convergence at the Center Hall attractor point and subsequent expansion toward park and landscape. Systematic differentiation in the hexagonal modules drives a density increase toward Center Hall, from where buildings emerge, and subsequently a gradual decrease toward the park and Ropetopia, thus generating a wide grid for open space structures such as the Stage and Pool.
The complex consists of three volumes embedded in a central membrane, a lightweight structure that functions as a Greenhouse in winter as well as a roof for Center Hall, mediating public space between site, park, and buildings. In the first building are the climbing walls, bouldering area, and roof bar terraces which are strategically located to allow viewing of climbers and Vitosha Peak. The second building houses the Funtopia. The third hosts a spa and fitness center on the first floor, a multi-functional recreation center on the second, and administration offices on the third.

The design proposal for the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Villa consists of an urban field whose main parameters are density programs and environmental inputs. From this parametric interaction, four shell typologies emerge as the non-linear product of different structure gradients, from thin concrete shells to grid shell structures.
Efficient system performance results from structure adaptation according to required program density. In low density environments, such as multi-complex areas, structures act as thin concrete shells, while in those of high density, where large-span structures are required such as stadiums, the shells consist of grid structures. A transition between the two extremes is achieved through combining systems of thin concrete and grid structures. This hybrid typology is presented in areas of moderate density where medium-span structures are required such as in residential areas as well as in the Training center. Although each shell typology
can function independently, it is part of the same overall urban grid which is interconnected through the use of smooth spatial transitions.
