Please accept my application for the position of Part 2 Designer/Architect at Heatherwick Studio.

I am a dynamic and ambitious architect with an extensive experience in digital design, planning and

product design. I have been tutoring a series of design workshops, having as main focus digital design

and digital fabrication methods. After taking a master course at the Dessau Institute of Architecture (Anhalt, Germany) and graduating from the University of Architecture and Urbanism “Ion Mincu” with a Diploma degree in Architecture, I have worked in several known architecture and design companies (UNStudio from April 2013 to September 2017, SYAA).

My last position at UNStudio was that of Architect/Associate.

I am a designer with a passion for arts and choreography, interested in interdisciplinary design, politics, philosophy and i possess an impeccable technical and digital skill set with advanced knowledge of Rhinoceros + Grasshopper, the Adobe Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop, Premier) and other graphics communication mediums. An excellent communication skill is also one of my strong points.

My attention to detail and excellent problem-solving skills ensure that every project I work on is done accurately and to the highest possible standard. I am comfortable working as part of a team but I also have the ability to take an authoritative role when the situation arises. My verbal communication skills and positive attitude make me an effective communicator with all the people I work with.

I am excited about the chance of working for Heatherwick Studio as i fully appreciate how theory,

concept, design and product blend together in inspiring statements and projects. My enclosed resume clearly demonstrates my interest in research and the way in which my skills and experiences are compatible with this role.

I look forward to the opportunity of discussing my application with you further and how I can significantly contribute to the ongoing success of your studio.

Yours sincerely, Irina Mihaela Bogdan

“The Financial Street (Hailun) Center is located at the crossroads of two metro lines, providing excellent con- nection to public transport and therefor a desirable location for office and retail. The general massing of the project consists of a 33-storey tower and a series of smaller mixed-use pavilions. Placed as objects in the flow of commuters, the buildings organise outdoor spaces of different scales and provides a platform for a variety of urban activities.

The facade design emphasises the buildings as singu- lar objects. The curved geometry of the buildings, with strong vertical lines, anchors the building within the city. The faceted and coloured texture of the facades provides a changing appearance when approached from different directions, adding to the dynamics of the location in Shanghai.”

Qingdao Horticultural Exhibition Qingdao, China 2014

“UNStusio’s design for the World Horticultural Expo 2014 There Pavil- ion consists of the Main Expo Hall, a Performance Hall, Conference Center and a Media center. The design focuses on the relation- ship between Science and Nature. Whilst scientific achievement serves as an inspiration, the design communicates the essential generative and structural principle of nature through architectural gesture. The buildings become gently absorbed in the landscape, whilst maintaining their individual identities.

The architecture of the Theme Pavilion further responds to the dominant skyline of the mountain surrounding the Masterplan by means of carefully composed roofscapes on the individual build- ings. These roofs are envisioned as elevated landscape plateaus, each addressing a different portion of the Masterplan with its incli- nation and terracing, providing panoramic views which extend far into the surrounding landscape.“

SLOW DOOR [Methexis Studio] Milan Design Week - Lexus Design Award Milan, Italy 2016

The slow door is conceived to investigate the ‘inbetween space’ - the space of anticipation. The idea is to design an object that could possibly influence the way we experience threshold as a space in itself. In particular, the slow door addresses the designed event of ‘delaying the transition’ through the threshold and pro- longing the moment of haptic interface.

threshold and pro- longing the moment of haptic interface. The challenge throughout the design process has

The challenge throughout the design process has been to ascer- tain the degree of intervention required to manifest or amplify the experience of the ‘inbetween space’ whilst still preserving the functionality of the object.

The slow door consists of 252 cubic blocks of which 251 are typi- cal blocks with dimensions of 100 mm X 100mm X 100mm and one atypical block which has an integrated door handle. The units are organized over a grid of 21 rows and 12 columns.

PLAY MINCU

A game between officialdom and architecture

http://www.playmincu.ro

T he Play Mincu Pavilion is a semiotic, interactive installation producing architectural stamps, which speak about the two modes of the architectural profession: the artistic

aspect - esthetic and conceptual, and the bureaucratic, judicial aspect, which gener- ates social norms and values. The concept of the pavilion revolves around the person- ality of Ion Mincu, creator of modern Romanian architecture who was also active in the political and the bureaucratic side of this field. The exhibition itself has two designs: as cultural device for mediating contemporary Romanian architecture, and ironic decen- tering of the respect given to the architect’s profession in some parts of the world. The postage stamp and the notary seal embosser are the symbolic vectors of the exhibition. Visitors can play with these, producing for example notary dry stamps that in real life in- vest papers with official authority, but in the context of the Play-Mincu Pavilion reframe bureaucracy and its normative forces within a cultural act mediating architecture.

INTERNATIONAL CRUISE SHIP TERMINAL | Famagusta . Cyprus

E01

ICST

Concept: Applying nodal surfaces of degenerate states in optimizing circulation flows

Ambition: Optimizing the passenger’s and visitor’s circulation flows in a multifunctional cruise-ship terminal

Context and statement

WHY CHOOSE FAMAGUSTA TO BUILD AN INTERNATIONAL CRUISE SHIP TERMINAL?

In 1932, Famagusta was the only deep sea water port in Cyprus and soon it became the only international port on the island. In 1974, after the Turkish invasion that led to the massive abandonment of Varosha (a flourishing neighborhood of Famagusta), the UN put Varosha under military restriction and closed the whole area down. All the commercial routes between the Turkish administration of the island and

the rest of the world were cut. Today, the only boats anchoring in the port are local fisherman boats or other small scale local commercial

boats. The political isolation turned the city into a no man’s land.

Q: What should there to be done after a future political understanding among the Greek and the Turkish administrations?

A: From my point of view, a leap into a hybrid world of reality and utopia; bringing back to life the international port by pro-

posing a touristic and a small local commercial node in the vicinity of the old city center - an international cruise ship terminal.

Q:

A: An economical growth that would be able to enhance and to partly support the revitalization of the abandoned neighborhood of Varosha.

Project insight

The site is part of the commercial port, it is placed in the vicinity of the old center of the city and it is benefiting from having access to the main roads and to an al- ready existing port infrastructure.

In order to enhance all these as- pects, the main issue of this project was to properly manage and op- timize the exterior and the interior circulation flows of the terminal.

CENTRAL CIRCULATION NODE

To satisfy all the needs of a passenger ter- minal, I focused on developing a concept that would bunch together the solution for three of the main issues: the continu- ous flux of arriving and departing tour- ists plus the optimum structural solution that would also correspond to the spa- tial and functional needs of the program.

I began doing my research on minimal surfaces. After a series of trial and error tests, I ended up focusing on one cer- tain family of minimal surfaces that would answer to most of the key problems:

Nodal Surfaces of Degenerate States.

The next step in the designing process was to fit all the parameters into one coherent organism. This determined the relationship of the building with the site, the optimization of the inte- rior spaces and the calculation of the structural needs and dimensions.

In order to facilitate and to encourage the people to walk through the ter- minal and experience the continuity of the space, the concrete structural skin was doubled by a second layer of wood. This transformed the whole structure into an open walkable “ter- rain”.

FUNCTIONS

From a functional point of view, the complex gathers together all the features of an international cruise ship terminal, with two decks suited for both, arrivals and departures, luggage rooms, cafeterias, a landscaped roof terrace that is accessible for both passengers and visitors, with panoramic views oriented to- wards the old city, the neighborhood of Varosha and towards the sea. There is also an area dedicated to offices and confer- ence halls. The underground level is divided in two main areas, one dedicated to commercial use and the other being used as a parking lot. From the commercial area there is a direct ac- cess to the lower deck of the terminal, where a boat exhibition hall can be found.

minimal surface study

The aim of this exercise was to translate the physical properties of a hand-made model, into a digital 3D model. We made several ex- periments out of which we extracted the general law and trans- lated the information into an algorithm. In this particular case we used Mathematica 7.0 to reproduce the Riemann minimal surface.

ASC Architecture Spring Challenge 2012 Die Angewandte, Wien The Architecture Spring Challenge 2012 is an international

The Architecture Spring Challenge 2012 is an international design workshop for architecture students interested in exploring integrated digital design and fabrication tools at IoA - die Angewandte Wien.

Integrated Digital Design and Fabrication In this workshop, architectural design was taught as an integrated, multidisciplinary process. Following this tradition, the design process was enriched with structural testing of parametric models in Karamba, a structural analysis plug-in for Grasshopper. The handling of virtual simu- lation methods in the fields of parametric and digital production was the primary focus of the workshop. This weeklong intensive workshop resulted in a full-scale built structure.

Format and Output The Architecture Spring Challenge was organized as a weeklong program with 22 interna- tional students and 6 tutors. Introduction to Rhino, Grasshopper, and Karamba was followed by project design development and daily reviews of student group projects, which were as- sessed in competition style. The selected project was fabricated and assembled as a group effort. The event closed with an exhibition and presentation with guests. The output was a parametrically designed and digitally produced human-scale structure fabricated out of corrugated cardboard.

Workshop

Day1:

Workshop started out with an incredible amount

of people. Both students and architects seemed

very interested of this event, which of course made the whole pre-event time worth its while.

The day started off with the three of us (Tu- dor Cosmatu, Andrei Raducanu and Irina Bog- dan) and our dear friend Alexander Kalachev giving a short introductory lecture on para- metric design and fabrication methodes and talking about our thesis projects approaches.

A short introduction into Rhino followed, allow-

ing (most of the people) to get a glance on what this software is able to do. Grasshopper introduction and tutored examples followed. This proved to be the hardest part, but we defi- nitely believe everyone got the point and can start discovering the potential of it further.

Workshop

Day2:

More tutored examples followed during the whole day, increasing the number of bedazzled people. Things started to get messy towards noon, but in the end everyone got the point, which was a great deed. We went through a series of examples rang- ing from object to potential urban plan scenario.

Workshop

Day5:

People started working early in the morning, merg- ing concepts, ideas and methods in order to make everything work correctly. The team of tu- tors went through all the projects trying to make each and every one of them work. Late that night the VIRULENCE project got sent to the laser cut- ter, while the Wishbone and hex[igloo were still struggling to prepare the files for laser cutting.

Workshop

Day6:

While the VIRULENCE people were waiting for fi- nal pieces and starting the assembly on site the other teams were struggling to make the files for production as intelligent as possible. Thanks to our good friend (dj/vj) Cristi aka CRID we had the chance to stay up because of his nice speak- ers and amplifier. Soon the university square was covered in the furious beats of cristi’s playlist.

Day7:

After a long night for the laser cutter and for Alex (SPOT DE- SIGN), most of the WISHBONE pieces were done and more than half of the hex[igloo components arrived. Soon a very interesting configuration emerged: some of the people were involved in putting the pieces together on site, while the so called FACTORY was working hard on putting the components together. Half of our tutoring staff had to leave, so a quick ceremony took place where participants re- ceived their participation cer- tificate. Days and nights started to merge and to become one (a thing we really enjoyed). The Wishbone got finished to- wards the end of the night.

Workshop

Day8:

To our surprise a lot of people (all of them) showed up for the final run in assembling the final pieces of the hex[igloo. Although our estimation was to finish towards 6 pm it proved to be rather wrong. Towards the end of the night the hex[igloo started to force itself into place waiting for the fi- nal rows to come into place . The work and fun continued until late in the morn- ing. Glue guns started running out of bul- lets, jamming and giving up on the tough job they had to perform, tapes were be- ing reused and people were tired. 6pm (our previous deadline) quickly became 6 am, but with the enthusiasm and interest of the whole group, the hex[igloo got fin- ished as the sun was rising, allowing our fi- nal guest (Alex) to get to his flight on time.

As a final conclusion we have to say that we (as tutors/organizers of this event) are extremely proud of the results and the way people worked together. Although we placed the mockups without any permission in the main universities hallway, we are hap- py that everyone was glad to see the results.

Between the 10th and the 12th of June, HEXigloo spent the night under the blue sky, as part of the Street Delivery festival.

The way we chose to relate to the spiral like structure was to continue the curve path of the existing geometry and introduce the Fibonaci sequence in the design work flow.

ORGANIZATION

One of the most challenging issues of the workshop was to con- dense the design and fabrication processes in one week. In order to be able to do so, we divided the assignment in three and worked in teams. Each team was given a certain task: the first dealt with designing the beams, the second dealt with the enclosure and the third team designed the floor.

FABRICATION

In order to be able to fabricate the pavilion, we had to deal with the components separately. We prepared the beam files for the cnc milling machine, the skin pannels for the laser cutter and the floor’s wooden beams for the electric chainsaw.
