More of our recent project #1045SouthOlive in Los Angeles, Ca! Mid-tower, the amenities are expressed as a single volume, in conversation with the sculpted base. The carve-outs of the terraces serve as outdoor extensions of the indoor common spaces, and are informed by use and views for both tenants and neighboring buildings.

Downtown #LosAngeles, a long established commercial hub nestled into the Los Angeles basin, is in the midst of an active and expansive transformation into a mixed-use residential neighborhood. The #794unit tower proposed for #1045SouthOlive engages both the challenges and opportunities that this duality presents while cultivating an intimate sense of community both within the building, and with the streetscape below.

The #NationalLibrary of #Israel was one of our first competitions. We envisioned the building an extension of both the #natural and #cultural #landscape, physically and conceptually tying together the most powerful components of the #surrounding district. The #building draws on history as it looks the future, celebrating the quest for knowledge in its expansive reading room. The new National library of Israel is a living place—a destination, site of #learning, and catalyst for #engagement. at Israel

Meet Michael Unsicker. Originally from northern California, Michael spent some of his early childhood in Africa before relocating to Vermont where he spent most of his formative years. Michael’s exposure to architecture began through a vocational trades program at his high school and started his career with a design-build firm in his hometown. His early opportunities led Michael to pursue a uniquely deliberate and self-directed path to licensure focused on professional experience. He supplemented his twelve years of professional experience with two years of independent studies at DIS in Copenhagen, Denmark. Prior to joining ODA, Michael worked with firms in Boston and New York on a variety of project types across multiple market sectors. Most recently, Michael was a Project Manager at Rafael Viñoly Architects where he led the conversion of a historic landmarked tower into luxury residential condominiums. Michael’s approach to architecture has been heavily influenced by extensive independent travel across Europe, South America, Asia and the Middle East – including a two month placement as a visiting architect at BRAC University in Bangladesh.

Observations of geometrically stepped communities like #MachuPichu and structures like Mesopotamian ziggurats, illustrate the #geometric potentials of #vertically layered #architecture. Stripping these historic sites of design implications (power, religion, necessity) and observing them on a purely #formal level, it is obvious that these communities inhabited the vertical sphere as much as the #horizontal. Daily life was extended beyond typical horizontal planes and into cascading arrangements of vertical moments.

The stacked madang, or ki-wa, help define the sloping concrete roof shape we employed as a fresh take on the traditional #korean roof structure. Like shallow slices of an apple, the individual yet connected roofs share an organic shape, one that provides a continuous surface and blends softly with surrounding mountains. #odanework #pyrongchangdongartscomplex #competition
