This collection features fall semester work in Design V (Corrugated Motion) also known as the Pratt Graduate Dormitory Housing during fifth semester, third year at Pratt Institute Undergraduate School of Architecture.


Title: Corrugated Motion

Professor: Lawrence Blough 

Year: 2014

Status: Archived

Synopsis: Through transformative folds and corrugations, the project builds upon a thick two-dimensional facade that creates the organization of multiple programmatic facilities. Located between the intersection of Grand and Myrtle Avenue in Brooklyn, New York, the project facilitates dormitory units, double-height commercial and private lobbies, a spacious courtyard with an art park, and a roof garden. The L-shape graduate dormitory consists of a single-loaded corridor with a skip-stop system. Using the primary facade system, the project develops efficient ways to conserve solar thermal energy through shading. Throughout the process, the facade transforms the entity of the project with its efficiency in energy, spaces, circulation, structure, and assembly resulting in a maximum dimension of 24 feet in width of the entire structure. With a modulated folded facade system and maximum efficiency, we bring Corrugated Motion.
