Students are exposed to the latest European architectural projects and to the international practice of architecture focused on large-scale projects in an urban setting utilizing advanced technology. The contemporary design experience is set against the powerful historical traditions of Europe, allowing students to wit- ness firsthand the creative dialogue between past and present. The internship presents practices and projects in the forefront of architectural and technical innovation, providing students a highly valued professional experience. The projects worked on at BUFFI Associés include a hotel and residen- tial property in Villefranch-sur-mer, an upscale residential building for Montpelli- er, and a city building for Perigueux. All images are owned by BUFFI Associés.

  7. 7. Brooklyn Film Forum D U M B O __ B r o o k l y n , N e w Yo r k S p r i n g 2 0 0 9 __ F o u r t h Ye a r D e s i g n S t u d i o Professor Robert Riccardi The mission of the Brooklyn Film Forum is to help artists create new works through the use of new and evolving technologies while also creating a place for a diverse group of artists to meet. It is a non-profit media arts col- laborative organization. The goals are to create an environment where artists can make work inspired and achieved by electronic media, and to create a responsive public context for the appreciation of new work by presenting and broadcasting the finished works. The project is a 30,000 square foot building located in the DUMBO dis- trict of Brooklyn. The film forum is situated on the south bank of the East River between the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges. The program for the project includes public spaces, educational and technical support spaces, artists-in- residence program, and outdoor spaces for viewing film.
  8. 8. The concept for the film forum is based on themes from films relating to the city. From the film “Do the Right Thing” inspiration came from the premise that the life of the city is in the street. So- cial interaction, communication, and the exchange of information are lively activities that take place in the street. The circulation and movement of the street facilitates social meetings and human contact and natural interaction. All of these human activi- ties bring the structure of the city (concrete, glass, steel, and stone) to life. Another focus is the dualities and conflict of the film “Metropolis.” The themes of light versus dark, and man-made versus machine-made trans- late into the project as concepts of old versus new and private versus public.
  9. 9. Within the perimeter of the existing Tobacco Warehouse the program is separated into tow- ers and the open space between them creates “streets.” These streets will not only offer conve- nient circulation through the site but also promote social interaction and bring life to the outdoor spaces of the site. The goal is for these streets to accommodate the life and humanity that good filmmakers successfully capture. “Streets” are also created within the buildings themselves and can be seen from the surrounding urban context to create a connection to the city.

  14. 14. Kansas City Skyscraper D o w n t o w n __ K a n s a s C i t y, M i s s o u r i F a l l 2 0 0 8 __ F o u r t h Ye a r D e s i g n S t u d i o P r o f e s s o r Wo j c i e c h L e s n i k o w s k i The building is a high-rise multi-use structure in the downtown of Kansas City, Missouri. At 95 floors and an approximate gross area of 206,000 square meters, the building is a defining element of the skyline of Kansas City. The building contains a hotel, office space, commercial retail space, and a residential component, with appropriate parking provided. The goal is to establish a building diagram which maximizes created value in support of improved economic returns. Another goal is the ecological and environmental impact of the building is demonstrably superior to typical buildings of this type. Working in teams of three, the goal was to create a project that enhanc- es and further establishes the character of Kansas City, while identifying itself as progressive. The building should represent it’s own time, the most impor- tant element of context.
  15. 15. The site is located on a block in downtown Kansas City, Missouri bordered by the streets of 13th to the north and Baltimore to the east. The block is composed of two vacant parcels and one additional parcel containing a one story building. The remaining parcels on the block are occupied by two tall buildings. The site is in close proximity to the Kansas City Convention Center. It offers excellent views in all directions , and is visible as an edge to the skyline seen from the west and south. 13th Street Baltimore St
  16. 16. With team members Phil Prange and Peter Rittman, the concept for the project was developed. The overall strategy for the building was to maintain its connection to the city with views into and out of The Program: the building. At the street level the building entries serve this purpose, with multiple points of access and an open plaza space at the northeast corner. The building is divided into four sections based 20% Residential on program, and the vertical circulation is located at the edges of each section, both internally and externally. The stair cores are contained in glass so that vertical movement within the building is visible from the exterior. Based on these goals, other key 45% Office design strategies became circulation and views. The overall building was designed in group collaboration, with separate tasks delegated for graphic representations and illustrations. I complet- ed the plans, sections, models, and some interior 30% Hotel 3D models. Phil Prange executed the model and interior 3D models.

  21. 21. International Student Center U n i v e r s i t y o f K a n s a s __ L a w r e n c e , K a n s a s S p r i n g 2 0 0 8 __ T h i r d Ye a r D e s i g n S t u d i o Professor Denton Nichols The International Student Center at the University of Kansas is a 25,000 square foot building to serve the international students studying at the universi- ty. The center provides a home and foundation for international students. The goal of the center is also to encourage social interaction among international students and the KU student body, and is therefore open to public use with several student union functions. Cultural learning is also a key element of the center. The center will include common areas for social growth and interaction, as well as offices for International Student and Scholarship Services to serve the international students, and the office of Study Abroad. A key element of the center is the orientation area, or “Hall of Nations,” to serve as a learning and meditation area. The goal for the International Student Center is to facilitate learning, and therefore understanding, of the cultures of the world.
  22. 22. The site for the International Student Cen- ter is located on Daisy Hill on the campus of the University of Kansas. Daisy Hill is located between the main campus and the Hashinger and Ellsworth residence halls. The concept for the center is layering, based on the layers of humans and their culture. Humans are complex creatures with many layers. A human’s culture, an outer layer, does not define them as a person. However, understanding culture is vital to understanding the world and one’s place in it. The concept of layers was incorporated in the design by layering circulation throughout the building, and layering spaces based on their use and degree of privacy. The Hall of Nations is the gem and focus space of the center. It is a space to desire to be in and journey to. The Hall of Nations is a space for learning, meditation, and understanding of culture. In acknowledging and understanding cultural dif- ferences, we can then truly see our similarities and connections. The Hall of Nations is a space to feel like a citizen of the world.

M a n h a t t a n Yo u t h C e n t e r Manhattan, Kansas S p r i n g 2 0 0 7 _ _ S e c o n d Ye a r D e s i g n S t u d i o Professor Bob Condia The Youth Recreational Center in Manhattan, Kansas is approximately 14,000 gross square feet, and offers a variety of recreational programs for youths ages 5 to 17. The center features a gym/workout area, computer and resource center, and multi-purpose rooms. A variety of recreation program and classes are offered, and the center also hosts special events, after-school programs, and cultural activities throughout the year. The goal of the center is to facilitate growth and development in youths. The concept for the youth center is based on the surrounding prairie and its expanse and evolution. The strategy for the building is derived from the form and function of the ancient Greek gymnasium, which was not only an athletic training facility, but also a place for socializing and engaging intellectual pursuits. This well-rounded growth is the goal of the youth center.
  27. 27. The site is located on a portion of land in City County Park set aside by the city of Manhattan. The site fronts Kimball Avenue to the north and is bounded on the west by Avery Avenue. The site is currently an open dirt plot used as parking for the adjacent baseball fields. The parcel has a gentle even slope. The site is surrounded by residential neighborhoods, making pedestrian access to the site easy for children. The building was designed using the cel- lular form type, with emphasis on the parts and emphasis on repetition.

  29. 29. The diagrams to the right aid in demon- strating the cellular form type, which utilizes a clear expression of the cell in both space and form. The cell is the unit of measure which defines the whole. The parts are proportional to the whole. The cell repeats itself in a geometry to create the form. The cell adapts to many functions, and contains all aspects of the building. The cellular form type is an additive form, but can also be subtracted from. The addition of cells is relatively easy, but the cell must be clearly expressed. Section through courtyard looking west Longitudinal Section looking south
