“Sensations of experience become a kind of reasoning distinct to the
making of architecture. Whether reﬂecting on the unity of concept and
sensation, or the intertwining of idea and phenomenon, the hope is to
unite intellect and feeling, precision with soul. “
-Steven Holl Questions of Perception: Phenomenology of Architecture
These are recent progress photos taken of a house I have designed
for my parents, located in Sandwich, New Hampshire. This is phase
one of an ongoing project - The barn-like structure has a year round
apartment above a garage, which will ultimately be the guest house
when phase II is complete. My involvement included the design of
the barn, and I also worked for our contractor in building the
foundation last August.

Sign for Marketplace Facade
After showing the client several
ready-made fonts, I proposed
a more personal approach for
the look of the market. Using
sumi ink and a bambo pencil,
‘Thornes’ was written out
until a font with the right look
was achieved. The logo was then
turned into a font using Illustra-
tor, and will be used as the sign
for the marketplace, as well as
interior graphic wayﬁnding and
other forms of branding.
Web Layout and Brochure
A set of documents were created for the
Tenant Design Criteria, intended for a
website and brochure to attract potential
new tenants to the marketplace.
Text was used as the back-
ground, serving a decorative
and functional purpose of

Passage < A Collaborative Installation for Watching
Passage _ A Collaborative Installation for ‘Watch’_ Instructor Kyna Leski, Fall ‘03
Beginning with the word ‘watch’ our team of seven students with shared design
responsibility realized a passsage using eight foot furring strips and bolts to
create a moiré pattern . This provided the experience of having the view broken
up into varying degrees. The installation was constructed in segments and
assembled on site.
Urban Renewal _ Jewelry District, Providence Rhode Island_ Instructor Lili Herman, Fall ‘05
With the relocation of Interstate 195, the historic Jewelry District will be reconnected with downtown
Providence. The district’s waterfront location was an incentive for continuing the city grid to its edge
by creating canals lined by student housing with an avenue of open park bisecting it. The river
was also brougt further into the city.
Slaughterhouse to Museum _ Lugano, Switzerland_ Instructor Lynett Widder, Spring ‘06
The concept was to divide the complex into separate spaces for different functions, similar to a fac-
tory. This was applied to create intimate interior and exterior courtyards for focusing on the works of
art. There was also an experience of progression towards the increasingly enclosed, and arrival at the
main performance hall where the view opens up of the river.
Light Sculpture _ Boston Center for the Arts_ Instructor Leonard Newcomb, Spring ‘04
Through analysis of Giacometti’s bronze ‘City Square,’ an understanding of the ability for objects to guide and
impel one through a space was gained. An interactive sculpture was designed to act as a brand for the promi-
nent corner locations of the Boston Center for the Arts. Images are projected onto cast-glass panels which re-
fract light, and shadows created as one moves through the space.
Kindegarten, Horizon _ Providence, Rhode Island_Instructor Kyna Leski, Fall ‘06
The sloped nature of the site allowed for an opportunity to address the horizon,
visible in the distance. Given the program, the design speciﬁcally dealt with how a
child’s view could be raised to that of adults, and thus provided with a heightened
and unique experience of what it means to be in alignment with the horizon.
Techtonic Wire Structure_ Instructor Jack Ryan, Fall ‘03
From the study of a leaf cell, a tectonic wire system was created based on the concept
of a subsystem that operates within a larger framework. Because of the conﬁgura-
tion of its joints, the interior has the ability to expand and contract, affecting the outer
form. When several of these ‘cells’ are linked, they each impact the larger structure.
Degree Project _The North End, Boston_ Advisor Ann Tate, Spring ‘07
The proposal was to deﬁne the edge of the North End with seven buildings that act
as gatehouses to the neighborhood. The conditions for the sites vary, predominantly
corner lots where the blocks were severed by the Interstate. All of the sites call for a
need to maximize land. The buildings are intended as cultural centers, the
connection to beneﬁt both those Downtown and the residents of the North End.
