women and children's shelter THESIS STUDIO - FALL 2016
The proposed shelter is located in the Central North Neighborhood of Columbia, Missouri. Dense woods wrap the north-west corner of the site helping to protect from views. Rather than placing my building in the 500 yr floor plain I decided to design on the highest point of the site to increase security. The close proximety to local primary/secondary schools and bus routes makes accessibility easier for users. Although the neighborhood is mostly residential there are some commerical buildings making it a descrete place for a shelter.The site area is 58,793 sq.ft. and the building area is 18,620 sq.ft.

CENTRO LATINO DE SALUD
Security.Empowerment.Healing. This facility is a safe haven for women and children affected by domestic/sexual violence. Through emergency shelter and transitional housing families are provided with the services and amenities necessary to take a confident step back into the world. The inward facing form maximizes security and privacy for women and families. The shelter also provides individual living units to allow users to personalize their spaces in hopes of empowering. Having a central courtyard helps facilitate the healing properties of nature.

union lake house STUDIO III - SUMMER 2015
UNION LAKE RD
During this studio I designed a lake house in Michigan for a retired couple. The clients were looking for a retreat to enjoy with their children and friends during the summer. The narrow site is located between two other vacation homes that also face north. My concept stems from the aquatic life of Union Lake. I wanted to create a shell inspired environment for the users which protects from view into the home and maximizes views of the water. The exterior facade is composed of vertical wooden slats allowing users to see but no be seen through balconies and windows on the east and west walls.

MAKERSPACE SITE PARKING BUILDINGS CAMPUS
Make:STEAM makerspace allows Columbia,Missouri high school students to explore science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. At the intersection of downtown and campus, technology and creativity integrate under one roof. I was inspired by the connection of ideas happening in similar facilities. Unlike a more traditional learning environment, students at makerspaces are asked to apply their own knowledge and skills to collaborate and create connections with their peers. The interlocking forms reflects these ideas and helps to define the building's functions.

volume & transformation STUDIO
During my first design studio I explored the fundamentals of spacial relationships and organization. Working with a bass wood kit of parts consisting of 16 cubes, 16 rods, 1 large cube, and a series of thin panels I investigated volume through a series of transformations. The following hand drafted axonometrics documents of one of those series.

College teams are asked to create a new house or redesign an existing home with a performance target of the DOE Zero Energy Ready Home specification. The University of Missouri's Architectural Studies and Interior Design students joined the University of Nebraska's Architecture students to compete in the 2016 competition. My role as the Missouri team leader included facilitating communication between the universities and defining team goals and deadlines. As the energy analyst I was in charge of running all energy reports with BEopt/RemRate simulation software.
