    prada storehouston, texasby armando romero jr

    this project was about a proposal of a new prada store located in downtown houston.

    this project was all about the exploration of curved geometry to generate the sensual-ity and elegance of prada. the black exterior was the refl ection of a new prada bag. with a red interior for the perfect atmospherically condition.

    this model was design digitally and physi-cally fabricated. The model composed of a series of sections that were laser cut, and join together to form a single piece building.

    this project is about developing one of cerds eixapmle blocks to generate social sustain-ability by designing a civic center.

    this project began by analyzing and mapping sun and shadow projection. the amount of sun and shadow were mapped and number based on the direct exposure. the two maps were overlap to generate a new map. the map was used to manipulate the geometry of the building and site a civic center with a green roof that tapers down into the central courtyard to maximized the amount of sun and public space the civic center provides

    this project confronts the issue between the community and the city and the city to the world through the implementation of a high-ly affectual skyscraper. a social mediator, a programmatic high rise attach to the favela, with the citys social services and cultural programs in the hearth of sao paulo merging a slum to the city.

    this mega high rise is all about skin as struc-ture, an exoskeleton system that supports it-self and the interior system, these tube struc-tures will also inhabit all mechanical systems and vertical circulation. the skyscraper will merge into the favelas existing infrastructure generating a continuous favela

    this project was about developing an art compound, composed of artists studios and living modules and the integration of mix-used service facilities that both the artist and public could enjoythe concept is about the form language and the message that the building is given to its users. the concept began with a simple cube. then divided into hamlets derive from their program relationship, these connected with a central courtyard based on the building type requested. circulation and architectural language began manipulating the form. the site steep topography was a major infl uence in the orientation of the compound. the rela-tionship between private and public program reorganized the form. using the guides from the axis created, the housing was dis attach but integrated into the fi nal artfarm com-pound design.
