  2. 2. + + ANDREW LOUIS APPELL ANDREWLOUISAPPELL.TK MAILING ADDRESS 15 WELLINGTON COURT BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, 11230 CONTACT ANDREWAPPELL@GMAIL.COM 917.968.4394 SUMMARY Graduate architecture student with strong interest in design methodologies that intricately and responsively address the contemporary urban condition. Primary interest in avant-garde approaches to urban renewal and multi-use civic projects integrating sustainable practices. Profoundly influenced by digital representation and its role in the production of hyper-radical tectonics and typologies in architectural design. INTENTION Seeking full-time position in architectural firm, joining collaborative design groups and contributing toward enriching the built urban environment. SKILLS AutoCAD, 3DS Max, Rhino, Maya, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Microsoft Office. Qualified in drafting, parametric modeling, physical modeling, and producing presentation material. Experience with construction observation and the creation of full drawing sets for the DOB. EDUCATION Pratt Institute, Brooklyn NY__M. Arch September 2007-May 2010; Dean’s List CAP project selected for NAAB show, Spring 2010 Rome Study Abroad program, Summer 2009 University of Massachusetts, Amherst__B.A., Fine Arts September 2001-2005; Dean’s List Concentration in painting ARCHITECTURAL EXPERIENCE Teaching Assistant, Integrated Building Systems, Pratt Institute Spring 2010 Aided students with technique and general technical design issues. Attempted to motivate students to conceptualize and develop their projects through detailed orthogonal drawings to help enhance the integration of structural design + narrative-based formal decisions. Robert Piccolo, AIA, Deputy Commissioner, Mayor’s Office for People With Disabilities Summer 2008 Member of the review and editing team, Inclusive Design Guidelines, New York City 2008.

Gruzen Samton Architects, LLP New York, NY , Summer 2000 + Assisted a team of professional graphic designers in producing architectural presentation material. +
  3. 3. plus+++ a defensible response to twentieth century antiquated avant-garde* The project is intended to acutely examine potential new relationships between artist, exhibit, and the public. The stratification of program is intended to strategically engage and reflect a new avant-gardism. The language of form, materiality and spatiality is one of inclusive mutation, surgery and adaptation. Through breaking integral elements and then re-connecting, a transformative gradient of apertures, fenestration, and formal qualities emerge, rendering a reactionary dynamism.

  7. 7. RE TH!NK AUTOS + comprehensive architectural project employs generative computation and architectural operations that engage all The + building systems. Structural, mechanical and all infrastructural requirements are considered catalysts in the development of an intricately integrated design strategy. The auto showroom site is located in Portland, Oregon. The project addresses the varying climatic and urban conditions present. Research and design of site strategy, program research, materiality investigations and the documentation of construction details are performed. The "Reth!nk" auto showroom offers urban sub-compact and alternative sustainable vehicles to the public. The narrative and objective of the project is to provide a RED CARPET procession for the visitor. A general re-conceptualization of what a contemporary auto showroom should provide is undertaken, resulting in specific detail and innovation in geometrical organization, circulation and formal language.

  8. 8. PROCESSION Heightening drama and the sense of spectacle for the visitor. The architectural elements of the auto showroom are intended to reflect the nonconformist attitude of those who are interested in learning about or purchasing alternative and sustainable vehicles. Two examples in the intent of creating a sensory and emotional experience for the guest are evident in the use of light and formal organization. Intricate fenestration applications: Light cannons top level, gradient of aperatures in the facade, large-spanning picture window. Circulation: Sharp and sleek ramping system, partitions and furniture design; and the strategically planned escalator that floats the visitor through the entire volume of the building.

The mixed-use building is located in an industrialized zone in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The design is purposefully abstract; the complexity intended to radically react to the physical and cultural environment present in the neighborhood. Concurrent methodologies that were implemented initially in the design phase were the research of mathematical computation and the application of scripting to generate architectural design. By engaging this formal research in conjunction with the socio-cultural and ecological concerns, a new-fangled tectonic is produce: tubes weaving through a structural mesh.

These personal units of confinement would be introduced as a new kind of therapy for the sane and insane alike. This new phenomenon of fabricated isolation existing extremely far away from the Earth and gravity as we understand it is intentionally implying a social and political critique of the systemic failures in addressing mental health in the Western world.

The relationships investigated throughout the project are: horizontal versus vertical logic, stacking and cladding systems, thickness versus thinness in shell and partitions, force acting on an object, and most important: the unraveling of form and this is interpreted sectionally.

Produced by Architecture and Communication Design students at Pratt Institute, with help from Professors David Frisco and Meredith TenHoor, the exhibit Brooklyn Exchanges presents Downtown Brooklyn's past and present development projects in order to imagine a more creative and just vision for its future. Though the project was highly collaborative and group-oriented in nature, personal contributions included: exhibit design, construction and installation; producing a comprehensive timeline and essay that presented a critical history of physical and social development in Brooklyn.

  25. 25. ONE_ SYNTHETIC ARCHITECTURE: The functions of software are utilized so as to extract critical approaches to the digitization of architecture. Experimentation through digital techniques of geometrical and formal manipulation, lighting, texture mapping, and materiality, investigate the roles of media and computation in the production of architectural objects.
  26. 26. TWO_COMPONENT TO FIELD: Through transformation, iteration and serialization, the original component is a catalyst for the production of a field condition. The defined unit is cloned and manipulated through animation techniques. The units are then morphed further by being arrayed to create a topological lattice system.
  27. 27. THREE_LANDSCAPE TO ENVELOPE: The systemically derived articulations in the surfaces of the design house the transition from ground to building while intricately connecting both. The geometry and structure are intended to delineate a new relationship between horizontal and vertical partitions.
