PL 44 House in Greenwich, CT by Joeb Moore + Partners Architects designed using ArchiCAD

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

This project is conceived as a series of concrete retaining walls and escarpments that traverse and cascade down a steeply sloped site approximately 700 feet deep and 300 feet wide.  In response to the steep + diagonal slope of the existing topography, the site / building strategy is to deploy a series of straight walls that act as “jetties” into the landscape and respond as a counter-force to.  As these walls begin to interact with the landscape they modulate and redistribute the sloping terrain into a series of terraces and gardens that spill and slide past one another.

Mill River Park in Stamford, Connecticut by Gray Organschi

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Through an open ideas competition, Gray Organschi was awarded the commission to design a threshold between a restored riverbank and an urban edge in Stamford, Connecticut.  Their urban porch proposal is composed of a shaded lattice formed from simple framing propped by gangs of timber pilings driven at slight angles to emulate the trunks of the trees in the meadow to the north.  Deep slender joists of standard dimensional lumber, bolted into pre-tensioned units, are aggregated and pulled taut to create an expanded grid of wood, the upward pressure of the timber tripods forcing the trellis to undulate slightly, a torsion fostered by the longitudinal geometries and connection system of the continuous timber frame.  Beneath it, a simple banding of concrete planks, interrupted selectively by broad joints of reinforced thyme and grass, provides a steady surface for strolling, seating and a chess game.



Yale University Health Services Building

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

The combination of the three buildings on the block, Rose Center / University Police, Yale University Health Services Center and structured parking, along with site structures and landscape elements create a reinterpretation of the traditional, interiorized Yale campus block. This configuration allows not only pedestrian but also automobile passage easily into and through the site, a thoroughly contemporary campus block condition. As with the traditional block, building entries are located internal to the block.
