This project was submitted to an open call for proposals for Pod Art installations at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Our proposal sought to create a reprieve from the visual stimulation present at the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. The installation provided a spatially interactive experience – one which can be simultaneously viewed and occupied. A 30′ x 30′ gridded field of 1 1/2″ diameter bamboo poles defined the installation while selectively removed zones created privacy and enclosure within an otherwise vast, undefined 600+ acre event. The tight placement of poles also provided dappled shade projecting into internal spaces located within the gridded field. Ultimately, This dense bamboo grid created an inhabitable thicket to be experienced and explored by the festivalgoer.

Erie Street Plaza is a small urban plaza in the Historic Third Ward district of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The 13,000-square-foot plaza lies at the point where the Milwaukee River meets the Federal Channel as it empties into Lake Michigan. It is the final link in a series of public space activators along the Milwaukee Riverwalk, a three-mile pedestrian and bicycle corridor that connects downtown Milwaukee to the emerging and redeveloping Third Ward, Beerline Districts, and the lakefront beyond.

‘Chapel’ Student Workshop Description:
This project was built as part of the student event MEDS, Meeting of European Design Students, during a two week period in August 2011 by a team of 18 students. This team was led by tutors Kieran Donnellan, Darragh Breathnach and Paul O’Brien. The concept for the pavilion involved the exploration of spatial concepts relating to religious typologies from the Western and Eastern cultures that have shaped Istanbul. This was in response to the event theme of ‘Bridging Cultures’. The name of the project is inspired by its origins in religious typologies, but the intention was simply to create a space that offers repose.

In the dreamed and romantic palace park, designed by the famous classicistic landscape architect Peter Joseph Lenné, the appearance of the eight small bridges with different lengths, from 2 to 10 meter, should be very discreet and in harmony with the historical environment. Nevertheless we choose glass as building material as indication for our time and a modern building technology. During the day the transparent glass bridges are disappearing in the environment through their mirroring and reflecting. In the night they become visible through the magic light that they radiate from bellow.

Our proposal for the New Taipei City Museum of Art is an open and welcoming design that erases the barrier of exclusivity normally surrounding the world of art, patrons, and experts. As such, the architecture of the New Taipei City Museum of Art is one that embodies this idea of erasure through eliminating the traditional borders between exhibition space and circulation, as well as exterior and interior. Every part of the museum is represented by a space without limits that can hold any type of expression.
- Architects: DCPP Arquitectos
- Project: New Taipei City Museum of Art
- Location: Taipei, Taiwan
- Date: 2011
- Built Surface: 59,740 m2
- Software used: 3D max, Rhino, V-Ray, Photoshop and AutoCad

The Traders’ Commune envisages a society of total self-sufficiency that aims to embrace and regenerate the surrounding area. In reaction to the current economic climate and deterioration of outer cities, the project acts as a critique of the development and decline of a failed planning model in Brighton’s suburbia.

— Bold silver letters with a soccer ball printed on the main facade announce the building’s function
— A black canopy signals the building’s entrance along Papineau Avenue for cars, cyclists and pedestrians
— A 10 meter wide boardwalk along the front facade creates a link between sidewalk and main entrance
— A symmetrical plan organizes all functions and helps the building assert its public role
— A double height square entrance hall distributes the public along interior circulations axes and creates a link with the bleachers above
— The fully glazed back facade offers an unobstructed view on the landscape of the former quarry
— The wood structure brings warmth to this otherwise non combustible construction
— Peripheral glazing at ground level create a link with adjoining landscape
— The stadium simple form makes it stand out from its context
— The building plays on the contrast between black exterior and wood interior

Stemming from the enriching life cycle of the organic plant, an inspiring design is proposed for a Taiwan Tower competition.
This natural concept embodies the very essence of the ecosystem within we coexist with, by mimicking the stable and collaborative harmony between trees roots and trunk system anchor and support the entire core of the building. Integrated with intelligent systems, this concept attracts the natural energy of nature and reinvents Cybertecture technology to produce a tower that is remarkable and extraordinary for people to work, visit and take pride in.

Mankind faces a challenge comparable in size with the industrial revolution to build a sustainable society. In order to succeed, we need to learn how to coexist with nature. We propose a building that aims to become a symbol; not of power nor wealth, but of a new era of harmony and interplay between nature and mankind.
