Carefully sited to embrace a large rock outcropping on a hillside site in Laguna Beach, California. The design of this project began from an initial conversation between owner and the architect while standing together on the site. They imagined a design, which through it’s materiality and physical lightness, would lead to a clear mediation between the structure and the site. The conversation evolved into a metaphorical narrative of two wooden shipping containers which fell onto the site from a cargo plane, one laying horizontally and the other standing vertically on the site.
Rosa Parks Apartments consists of the development of 94 affordable rental apartments in 8 buildings scattered across 21 city lots in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago. In order to achieve an economy of scale and affordability, the buildings vary from 6 to 27 units and are all a variation on a theme of the same modular facade. Only 2 types of windows are used throughout the development, and scattered 1 and 2-story colored bays project from the front and rear of the buildings—adding definition to their facades.

With the opening of its new building in June 2008, the Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM) ushered in a new chapter in its 20-plus year history of engaging audiences and artists in exploring contemporary perspectives on Jewish culture, history, art and ideas. The new facility is a lively center where people of all ages and backgrounds can gather to appreciate art, share diverse perspectives, and engage in hands-on activities. Inspired by the Hebrew phrase “l’chaim” (to life), the building is a physical embodiment of the CJM’s mission to bring together tradition and innovation in an exploration of the relevance of Jewish values and traditions in the 21st century. The new 63,000-square-foot facility, located on Mission Street between 3rd & 4th Streets in downtown San Francisco, enables the Museum to present an expanded array of engaging programming including art exhibitions, live music, film screenings, lectures and discussions, and educational activities for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

The 1340 Figueroa Street residential development is a multifaceted composition developed within the current fabric of downtown Los Angeles. The development strikes a balance between the tall buildings of downtown and the large scale civic complexes like the neighboring Convention Center and the Staples Center. The location of the site, at the southern end of the high rise downtown district, allows the tower to create a visible marker, contributing to a new skyline for the City of Los Angeles. Studio Daniel Libeskind is working with CA Human Technologies on the project.
