  7. 7. University of Rochester MedicalCenterRochester, NY | Ballinger, 2007This planning study conducted for the University of RochesterMedical Center (URMC) sought to address a serious issue of over-crowding at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. Faced witha constrained site, a phased replacement strategy was devisedstarting with a new adult and pediatric bed tower above a proce-dural base containing new imaging facilities.

  9. 9. Reading Hospital MRI SuiteReading, PA | Ballinger, 2007The MRI & PET CT Suite was the first phase of a five phase shuffleof the nearly 30,000 sf radiology department at Reading Hospital.The reorganization and expansion began with the consolidationof imaging modalities into a unified block serving bed towers atthe periphery. The reorganization also served as an opportunityto clearly delineate inpatient, outpatient, hospital staff, and visi-tor circulation.The location of the MRI & PET CT Suite is within an unused court-yard. The new five story infill provides much needed expansionspace and a greater footprint for an improved radiology depart-ment. The penthouse provides space for an improved heating andcooling plant and updated electrical service for radiology.6 Professional Work

  14. 14. Self-Organized Flats: TokyoTokyo, Japan | Temple University, Spring 2006Cities have developed their own sets of rules allowing them toevolve into self-organizing complex systems. In analyzing the us-age patterns of urban denizens in Tokyo (and more specificallyin the Ikebukuro neighborhood), there is potential to develop adesign procedure for residential housing that can be integratedinto the city’s organizational process.

  16. 16. Study of Amenities on the Neighborhood Scale Proximity to Amenities based on PreferenceUnit Combinations Urban residents choose sites and housing units based on preferences and qualities such as efficiency, adaptability, and accessibility. Sampling these preferences provides the basis for mapping appropriate sites and configuring units and complexes suitable for their use. The benefit of such a process is the responsiveness of hous- ing complexes to the desires of users. The long term effect of this process can be described as a feedback loop. As new residents are placed, non-residential land use will intensify around the site--leading to different landscapes for future residential complexes. In this way, the system self organiz- es in response to what exists and what is desired. The final result of this thesis investigation is a systematic organizing procedure for urban housing driven by choice.12 Academic Work
