325_Dan Whelan: Sanctuary for the Harrowed

Submission #325 | Dan Whelan: Sanctuary for the Harrowed — “Since the beginning of human existence, people have been crafting spaces to house the processes of life and the inevitable event of death. These spaces range from monumental to economical, and display a vast array of cultural indicators, such as status and religion. While extremely diverse across the globe and universally significant, this typology has experienced less evolution through the centuries as its primary purpose of housing the dead has gone unchanged.”

186_Munjer Hashim: Plant 34

Submission #186 | Munjer Hashim: Plant 34 — Plant 34 is a project which takes on the real-world scenario of drought and future water shortage that is a current issue in New York State and creates a hybrid program which solves the issues conceptually.

164_Jonathan Cooper and Qiwei Li

Submission #164 | Jonathan Cooper and Qiwei Li — "Our Thesis focuses on how the juxtaposition and scaling of mass can manipulate space to form a new vertical city typology. This project locates itself somewhere between the canonical work of Mies van der Rohe in the Seagram Tower and the aggregated city work of Peter Trummer. One precedent that informed the design of the project is Rem Koolhaas' De Rotterdam project. The elevations and the sectional drawings of the building reveal the displacement of the different masses that comprise the overall form. The masses appear to have slid past each other just enough the produce a sense of disruption or agitation."

Submission #160 | Hieu Nguyen — The thesis is emphasised in the study of contemporary characteristics in towers in order to create the new typologies in the  tower where misreading and misfit between exterior and  interior are introduced. By using certain element of contemporary aspects (such as typical floor plans), the thesis tries to create familiar characters while unfamiliar those characters to create misunderstanding between the old  and the new of architecture elements.

138_Gustavo Takata & João Ribeiro: House in a Bridge

Submission #138 | Gustavo Takata & João Ribeiro: House in a Bridge — "The concept arises from a restoring axis of the city-river relationship that, simultaneously with the pre-existing structure, creates the habitable space. After a process of unceasing exploration of the parallelism between spatial qualities and function, we enter into a moment of purification, through the search for the essence. Each space is born of the individual - place - function relationship, generating atmospheric auras that define the place itself. "

75_Pankhuri Malhotra: Muwaileh Public Library

Pankhuri Malhotra: Muwaileh Public Library — This project aimed at introducing a new construct into the urban fabric of an otherwise mundane setting. Since each building on the given site followed the same typology, my approach was to ensure that the visitors of the library enjoyed an internalised experience and this was achieved by using perforated bricks.
