" Chipboard model of a inter-
vention along the ancient via
Suburana in Rome. The project
necessitated public, private,
historical, residential, religious,
mercantile (permanent and
temporary) and transportation
considerations. The uniform
chipboard material was utilized to
emphasis the landscape nature
of the proposal.
$ Material study on the transparency and color of wood for
providing light but not sight.

Detail model for a rain screen addition to an
existing building in Providence, RI. The interven-
tion proposed: better light by opening apertures
and by redesigning the fire escape, better
electrical wiring that was easy to upkeep through
removable panels, more floor space, and better
insulation. (Designed and built with a group).
