    • coöp-flex Seattle w t winter/spring 20 0 p g 2008 flexible mixed-use housing across the lifespan Challenge Seattle’s housing costs are push- ing out all but the affluent. The city’s plethora of cultural and natural amenities make it a de- sireable place to live, but without a diverse population, it will lose its vitality. In the meantime, climate and lifestyles are changing rapidly. Traditional design and construc- tion no longer respond to our needs for environmental andeconomic sustainability, flexibility, and a sense of community. 5+ room duflex Solution By challenging traditional notions of “multifamily housing,” flexible dwellings change along with theirinhabitants, fostering a long-term, intergenerational community.

Its higher density is both environmentally sustainable and affordable. A common house, rooftop agriculture, and water harvesting & re-use (among othertechniques) contribute to a unique and vibrant community. Lateral Section: courtyard Lateral Section: south

Reasons for this include repetitive tasks, bland (or even unhealthy) environments, and micro-management. below: second floor work area Seemingly adding insult to injury, the product being sold is an abyss away from the sea of computer monitors and opposite: ground floor lobby reception cramped worstations typical in many call centers. opposite below: reception area furnishings Solution If you can’t take a cruise,take the cruise to you. Bold tropical colors bring vitality to the workplace. Natural daylighting filters into everywork area. Amenities—such as a gym, child care, mothering room, library,and cafe—create a flexible, uplifting work environment. Other responses:• flexible, customizable, and ergonomic workstations, in-cluding thermal control, tasklighting, & adjustable desks.• integrated noise-canceling devices • alternate work areas that more closely resembledomestic environments—for impromptu meetings, over-flow workspace, or simply a change of scenery.

    • personal statement We spend 90% of our time in buildings: for better or worse, those buildings affect 90% of our entire lives. Architects, therefore, are both privileged and challenged by the task of actualizing our workplaces, our public spaces, and our homes. Every design decision has the potential to impact the quality of someone’s life. Architects, I believe, must always aim to improve the quality of life—not only for a building’s users, but also for the world as a whole. This entails sensitivity to a client’s wants as well as a vision of the building’s—and the planet’s—future needs. Yet architecture is, after all, part artistry—and neither “building needs” nor “client wants” are the stuff of Poetry and Art. To appreciate architectural poetry, one need only stroll along the winding lanes of Paris’ Quartier Latin: it is the intangible je ne sais quoi that grips you in the moment—if only for a few breaths—before releasing you back into the mundane realm. It is the soul of the architect’s trade. Utility versus Poetry: design must find the “sweet spot” between the two. But in these times, design must also reach farther—not only by finding economically-, socially-. & ecologically- sustainable solutions, but also by restoring resources, community, and habitat. In these ways, I strive to improve the quality of life—all life—as a designer of our built environment.
