The design of this stair helped me better understand how to manipulate curvelinear forms to create usable space and sculpture to then activate it.

The goal of this team project was to effectively design a 10’ x 10’ box for outside in the college courtyard that would allow light into the
space while still creating a complete visual barrier. Our solution was a layered system of colored plastic, framing and black sheet that carried
through a patterned gradient of warm and cool tones. In SketchUp I was able to model the space to provide a reference during construction for
direction of bracing and placement of individual elements.

This is a proposal for the redesign of the courtyard in our college. It uses a radial path layout to connect a variety of outdoor spaces for socializing, critiquing art and picnicking.
A new access point to the graduate studio encourages circulation through the courtyard, which is sunken 8 feet to make the space more private, creating areas for outdoor critiques.

These construction documents were an AutoCAD assigment that incorporated a comprehensive understanding of wall assemblies including masonry, steel frame, and wood frame.
The real and ideal was a project in which I examined where I lived as a piece of architecture, documented the existing conditions, and designed the ideal place to read,
study, and relax. By dividing the space into three zones, I created multivalent spaces, including an area for both dining and working, an area for entertaining, and a lounge

Precast concrete panel skin saves money normally spent onsite to pour; daylighting and ventilation is achieved through the orientation of glazing and the use of passive design.
This design project in this studio was a live-work apartment that took a variety of factors into
consideration, including context, economy, and market demographics. The wedge shaped plan
served to be an spatially efficient method, so rooms won’t cost much; it also created a sequence
as one enters and is drawn past a series of transparent barriers that visually extend you outside.
Drawings and renderings are done in Revit Architecture.
