I am currently in search a permanent position within an architectural firm. My experience in the professional world revolves into the development of plans from a schematic concept to the completion of design.

Individually, we were asked to design a townhouse within the area to connect living spaces with the recreational area. The challenge of having the length of the building longer than the width required critical analyses of how light will enter the building, as well as how circulation within the building functions. The solution was a courtyard and a light well to provide adequate lighting within the building. The light well separated the public and private areas in the townhouse. Circulation was kept on one side of the building to provide better design of the building's program.

Our design concept was established using the Fibonacci Sequence for proportions as well as aesthetic purposes in creating the walkway. Our purpose for the design was to unify the shopping district in College Station to Wolf Pen Creek Park. Our solution was to use the main component of the bridge as a monumental feature spread throughout the park and the walkway set within its folds to promote physical activity when trying to reach the shopping district. My involvement in the project was the design of the walkway as well as the rendering of the site as well as perspectives. Wolf Pen Creek Walkway ARCH 406 Spring 2010 Professor Francis Downing Perspectives Site 8 Structural Frame Detail Walkway Mesh Pattern Walkway Structural Detail Section/Elevation Stair Detail 10 This project required the preservation of an existing warehouse. We were asked to develop the space into the new Visualization Center for Texas A&M University. The building is located in downtown Bryan, Tx. My approach was to intergrate the community of Byran. College Station into the building's design but attaching a gallery that could be used by the students as well as local artists. The design result was a 20,000 sq.ft. building equipped with computer labs, studios, as well as a living space for a steward and visiting professor or artists.

In a group, we designed a 60,000 sq.ft. building that followed the protocol set in the Texas A&M's Master Plan. With our studio's focus on green design, LEED Silver certification was major factor in the proposal. The design includes green roofs, solar panels on roof, and green and natural materials on the inside like rammed earth, bamboo, and local limestone. We allowed for every room to have a view to the outside and brought inside natural light through a major light well that became the most dominate feature in our design.My contribution to the project was the use of Revit to create renderings as well as the plans of the building.

Throughout my travels in Italy, I was struck with the question of what makes up this spirit. Was it the texture, the materials, the plants, the people, the architecture? How could a place evoke an emotion of danger, comfort, serenity, and peace? What were the elements that allowed the spirit remain in a place? I found that Genius Loci brings all elements from architecture to exude a certain feel in a space. Architectural elements and natural materials are in conjunction to form a space that causes feeling within the human psyche. The places were the spirit resided the most was in spaces where different textures and materials came together and created crevices of wonder.
