This proposal for the Fresh Kills landscape in Staten Island, New York engages visitors and the environment into generating energy using piezoelectricity, which is the conversion of mechanical movement into electricity. Energy from wind, sound vibration, and human movement can collectively be harvested from the movement of natural piezoelectric materials embedded in walkable surfaces and bendable wind-capturing stalks and streamers.

A joint project between The Architectural League of New York and PEN World Voices Festival in collaboration with Little Free Library, LTD., Little Free Library/NYC was a design/build competition in which ten designers were chosen to install a Little Free Library in collaboration with a host community organization in the Lower East Side. Little Free Libraries are small publicly accessible book shelters that function on an honor system of “take a book, return a book.” Titled “Word Play”, artist and architectural designer Chat Travieso’s library plays with the idea of stacking and perspective.

Hudson Hill Condominium designed by FXFOWLE (2009) is located just west of Columbus Circle in the Clinton Hill District in New York City. The infill building’s Trespa-paneled façade, spanning 125 feet, is designed to actuate the street wall and bring character to the residential units. Designed to appear more opaque from the east, the faceted façade harmonizes with the adjacent rows of townhouses and small apartment buildings. The façade opens to the west so many of the two and three bedroom apartments capture views of a park at the corner of Tenth Avenue and the Hudson River beyond.

Recently very well known dramatic events pushed the citizens, the governments and the organizations to think new and more appropriate strategies in order to provide relief to the population’s victims of these catastrophic natural events. This is the aim of this competition too.

For Pharmacophore: Architectural Placebo, a design-dance installation at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York in December 2011, Harrison Atelier (HAt) designed a pharmaceutical-cultural landscape which included a network of polyurethane inflatables lodged within a glazed and steel seating structure recalling both pharmaceutical company facade and medical waiting room. The audience sat within this framework, apposed to the back-lit glass and resting against the inflatables.

In a historic waterfront village on the North Folk of Long Island, this six-stall barn/garage sits on a property line facing an alley. A shed stands behind the barn. The rustic appearance of the two buildings, standing side-by-side, is part of the character of the village. Adopting the appearance as they sit together, the design inserts two box-spaces, a “Semi-enclosed patio” and a “Boxed Light”.

The Shelter Island Pavilion gave Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat an opportunity to bring their influences, inspirations, aspirations and years of architectural design to bear in one place with only themselves and their budget to define the boundaries. They chose to draw on specific inspirations such as Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion, Le Corbusier’s Ronchamps, and Marcel Breuer’s Wassily Chair.

Spacesmith was selected to design Avon’s product shop, image room, heritage wall and executive suite for their new Headquarters. In designing these highly visible, public spaces, Spacesmith took the design vocabulary that had been previously established for the project a step further, using materials and design elements that achieved a subtle but powerful quality of heightened luxury and beauty. As part of the Company’s goal to reduce the environmental impacts of Avon buildings worldwide, sustainable materials were implemented in this design that contributed to the new headquarters achieving LEED® Gold certification.

Long Island Sound fills the northern horizon; a coastal pond lies to the west. Both water bodies are close to the site, however the water views are not visible at ground level, except climbing up a gravel hill just at the northern boundary. In counterpoint to an existing gravel hill, the design invites climbing levels and discovering vistas. Lifted places, rooms and decks are branching out to reach views and sky. Experiences of vertical movement are provided.
