  • 3. this desk was inspired by the need for simplicity in what a desk really is, a surface. the initial design started in the fall of 2009 in cord management & input product design class. in spring of 2010, an independent study storage allowed the time and opportunity to create the function. the name comes from the need for strict functionality in a desk. every part of the desk was thought out to be necessary or incredibly useful, and if it was not, it was purposefully left out. ergonomics and anthropometrics were very important to how this desk was used. cord control and wire management also were very important to the end product. the desk is made from 2-60”x60” thefunction baltic birch sheets of 3/4” plywood.

  • 4. when thinking of a parasite, I consider it as the quiet intruder who nestles in with it’s host in a very unnoticeable manner. with this ideal in mind, I designed the lofts to be as unobtrusive to the existing fenestration as possible. Le Corbusier gave me great inspiration with his unbuilt Immeuble Villas. most lofts are contained within a building - these hang - and take the literal sense of the word loft. suspending in a perilous act but within the comfort of a shared room one will not even notice they are hanging instead of within the context of a building. the front refresh and relax portion is a large area with diverse purposes, thus the dynamism of its form. the lofts S2|Y2
  • 5. DN 150’ UP open to below DN DN N very constraining site (42' x 150') to which I designed based on fitting the program to the site. you can see very distinct programs from the exterior based on free flowing program as it dictates form. the exterior fenestration allows an idea of what is happening inside. to counter so much public interaction and lack of privacy on the first floor, the West facade is very dominating and has very specific window placement. it is a shield to the public and you can see in the massing models of the East facade you see how much more private it feels and broken up into smaller spaces denoting a comfort level where you face another neighbor instead of two public 42’ venues like the West and South. red cedar house the long hallway serves as the organizing device within the otherwise free flowing main floor. one is pulled down the hall by the view of the garage at the end and by the light wall opening in the floor S1|Y3 first floor second floor above.

  • 10. | |houses E ET S TR NE PI a contextually harmonious and lively public space the existing museum has very poor siting which orients itself in no cooperative way with it’s context both immediate and distant. a couple large problems i see with the current museum is it’s disconnect with the riverfront and the potential museum site users that exercise along the path by the river and also the lack of other reasons for someone to come to the current site other than this poorly sited museum. my solution is to bring people directly into and through the site with paths that cross above the street level on the east directly through the much improved site layout and design. rowhouses mimick the typology across the street on the north to create an “alley” of green space that can serve as a park for local residents and museum users alike. the punction of the site is the retail and bandstand area on the far west.

My goal is to become a registered architect and lead my own successful rm. I will achieve this goal by earning a Masters of Architecture, which I intend to attain in 2012. I wish to secure an internship to learn real business practices and also to work with practicing architects. I prefer realistic architecture rather than abstract, or “starchitecture. Attention to detail and how I ” present my work and self are important to me.
