THE SECAUCUS LIBRARY:
emulating ecological environments
As a result of constant dumping of waste and debris caused by progressive urbanization over the years, the Hackensack River became significantly tainted, killing may native species.

In response, the project ecologically emulates the site through...

a penrose tiling
The Lotus is a ninety-six micro-unit housing project located on a single acre. The horizontal aggregation of the units employs Penrose tiling as an organizational strategy. The radial repetitions and geometric fractalization allows for...
L-BLOCK ON JOURNAL SQUARE:
playing with porosity
Aggregating the micro-unit prototype vertically to create a residential tower, the L-Block employs rotation of the unit to generate porosity on the facade. Depending on the angle of the micro-unit, a different view surrounding Journal Square is offered.
