My Courses

Introduction to Computation and Fabrication

Introduction to Computation and Fabrication

This course is an introduction to digital fabrication. It will explore the qualities of materials such as wood, concrete, and plastics in the context of computational design and digital fabrication thinking and techniques. Projects will provide students with experience in the use of a variety of tools, equipment, concepts, and emerging digitally-driven technologies, including parametric rule-based design, subtractive fabrication, assembly techniques, and iterative design processes

Intermediate Computation and Fabrication

Intermediate Computation and Fabrication

This course, the second in the digital fabrication certificate sequence (following ARCH3590), focuses on the development of parametric tools and digital prototyping techniques. Beginning from the study of precedents of modern architectural fabrication—both digital and non-digital– the course will develop a comprehensive understanding of exemplary construction and tectonic systems, as well as allowing students to develop a proficiency in applying this knowledge in constructing associative/parametric digital models that utilize tools to generate alternative variations of these systems. An integral part of the course involves the study of parametric modeling in Rhino 3D, Grasshopper, and SolidWorks, with dedicated workshops on geometry and linear algebra for 3D modeling. The output of the course will be a digitally modeled and fabricated paneling systems. Students will come away from the course with digital and material models, and documentation of the structural characteristics of the materials and fabrication techniques used.

ARCH 3610 Advanced Design

ARCH 3610 Advanced Design

An Advanced Design studio with an emphasis on a more complex building organization. The primary emphasis is in the further development and exploration of design principles involved in creating appropriate architecture, focusing on the integration of program, context, site, composition and space planning.

ARCH3510–Architectural Design V

ARCH3510–Architectural Design V

In response to the havoc of the recent storm and its long-term impact on our communities, this semester’s design projects will focus on disaster response issues, specifically at the location of the Zone-A communities such as Coney Island.

One-To-One

One-To-One

One-to-One is a research project about 3D printing at larger scales. There are many projects that deal with DIY 3D printing in general but most only deal with small scale objects. This project intends to move beyond the typical sizes and material to allow large, full scale, usable objects to be created. Large printing is not new but it is rare and expensive. This project intends to bring the same type of easy to build, easy to use printers that are emerging but to the next level in size and speed. A few areas of the current technology will be addressed in order to make printing at larger scale more feasible.

My Projects

HOSPITALITY GARDEN

HOSPITALITY GARDEN

The Garden is a project that teaches students and faculty about the excitement and nuance of growing flowers and vegetables for the Culinary and Pastry labs at NYC College of Technology. We encourage involvement and volunteers from all departments at the college.

Solar Decathlon at City Tech

Solar Decathlon at City Tech

This website is devoted to people in the City Tech community wanting to create a Solar Decathlon entry in 2015.

Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones

An Emerging Scholars Research Project led by Prof. Paul King from the Department of Architectural Technology

Disaster Recovery and Resilient Design in Coney Island

Disaster Recovery and Resilient Design in Coney Island

The goal of this research is to provide a sustainable and resilient design solution that would accommodate the needs of disaster victims as a short term function for the Coney Island community, and on the long term as a communal space that would not only compliment the Coney Island Area, but also protect it during a storm surge. The following issues will be addressed more specifically as a basis of this research: Establish which areas in the Zone A region are developable or not Investigate the use of Shipping Container homes for immediate disaster relief, the various methods they could be used and the infrastructure needed for delivery. Investigate the History of Coney Island and potential designs to improve the local economy and touristic quality of the area. Investigate and establish various disaster relief methods including existing and ongoing projects worldwide. Investigate resilient and sustainable methods and materials in the design and construction of the new and alternate infrastructural and communal development of the Coney Island Area. This research initiative is a product of the efforts and contributions of the following students: Zakarya Samih, Jefchy Rojas, Jonathan Hernandez, Osmany Cabrera, Zachary Mcsween, Raymond Jimenez, Erika Tobbs.
