This project will redevelop the triangular site with a 40-foot high three-story commercial office building of 109,375 square feet with a two-level underground parking garage of 75,653 square feet. In addition, the project will complete the existing bridge crossing with the construction of a 64-foot-wide bridge over the drainage channel. The bridge will provide access to the building's main entrance and include a publicly accessible park space of 10,000 square feet. The project would also include an onsite stacked shipping container cafe.
I was asked to develop the CD set, while working directly on the production of several drawings, including: egress plans, enlarged plans and elevations, wall sections, roof details, etc.
While on the project, I have also produced some design studies for the corner glazed staircase.
These are studies for the suspended steel staircase construction and design, at the South-East glazed corner of the building:
The following animation was produced using a Dynamo script which I created in order to animate Revit section boxes. The animations were used to analyze the model and identify trouble areas and clashes throughout the model.
For the renovation of this important historical building I was tasked with building the BIM model of the structure, using the 1913 original drawings.
This is my proposal for the replacement of the Morandi Bridge, that collapsed on August 2018, in Genoa, Italy.
We were retained by a renowned San Francisco firm, focusing on hospitality, as BIM consultants to begin the modeling of this complex home, located on a small island off the coast of Panama. The challenging roof shape was the focus of the client's design effort and that is where we spent most modeling hours. After a Schematic Phase, I begun to also visualize the residence, to help the client verify the aesthetics they had selected for the project.
To simulate an irregular wood constructions, I built some special beam and column families which where then randomly "flexed" and "disturbed" with a Dynamo script. This produced the look of irregular lumber throughout the house's structure (see especially the interior renderings).
After the renderings and photo-montages produced for different client's presentations, I also produced a couple of study animations for this house.
This high-rise tower is designed to be erected on top of the former San Francisco Mining Exchange building, a Neo-classic Greek temple facade with a richly decorated interior hall structure to be preserved and restored. I have been working as the Senior Building Professional on the CD set, and as Revit Specialist and designer for the Mining Exchange, the historical portion of the project.
Below, an animation I produced from the Revit model.
This project provides 95% of all electrical power required by the 3 buildings on the site, totaling 120,000 SF. The geometry of the site requred us to design 6 different solar panel supporting structures, including an elegant solar tree. The solar tree utilizes the double HIT Sanyo panel which outputs 10 to 15% more power thanks to the ambient lighting captured on the back of the panel.
The following animation shows how the solar trees can be shipped flat, planted on site, and unfolded to receive the array of solar panels.
