SOUND Sound is a spatial event, a immaterial phenomenon and an auditive experience rolled into one. It can be described using vectors of distance, direction and location. Every built space can modify, position, reflect or reverberate the sound that occurs with in it. SITE The landscape of this project becomes A visual translation of sound. We recorded at 25 different locations to map out the sound profile over the site. Each sound wave plotted and then transposed on to high density sheet of foam. Each sheet was then layered together forming a series of sharp peaks and valleys. Through a lengthy process of intense sanding a smooth lunar like surface emerged. AGGREGATION OF SYSTEM Four curves from the landscape were taken to create a single surface, one component. Each component connected by a spine creating a line, bone and skin system. The form has a natural synthesis with the landscape.


5B Thesis Design Studio Instructor: Jenny Wu Contemporary Art Museum This project, a contemporary arts museum is located in Adelaide Australia. In this project I'm interested in creating a narrative of ones’ experience journeying through each primitive to communicate the historical identities of an indigenous culture in Adelaide, Australia. My thesis is about exploring the conditions of three Native American building typologies: The tipi, Pit House, the Igloo and their organizational relationships to the ground plane by Extraction and Intersection. By extracting the primary shapes from each of these typologies and placing them inside other primitive we can begin to see new spatial intersections for openings and program. We can then see how the volumes are emphasized for symbolic representation of one being with nature, using light to capture ethereal moments of contemplation. the intersecting volumes emphasize organization, distinguish program and stage circulation.


Visual Studies Instructor: Coy Howard Coffee Table Inspired by Japanese aesthetics, natural materials, simplicity and balance were key design principles in creation of this table . This piece is utilitarian in nature. My intention was to strip out all of the unnecessary, leaving the rawness of all materials exposed. form and structure are also architectural characteristics that I wanted to emphasize. The cantilever implies that its just as much an object as it is architecture.

This cocktail table floats 8” above the ground plane providing 120 Sq” of usable surface area. Material list: - (3x) sheets of 4x8 furniture grade plywood (birch shown) - (2x) 6’ length,1/2 “ all thread rods - 1/2” Hex - 110 1/2” Hex nuts(galvanized) - 220 1/2” Washers (galvanized) - 220 Grit sandpaper


5A Design Studio Instructor: Coy Howard Indigenous Echo's of light and shadow A laser cutter was used to etch this hybridized pattern onto two pieces of black slate. For indigenous peoples, caves provided shelter and a way to record events. Cave walls were used as a canvas, a way to record events important to that time period. Ochre, a natural clay rich and deep in color was used to create cave paintings, cave etchings and body art. For this project, a photograph was taken of a classical building. Elements in the photograph were chosen and through a process of selection, layering of elements and reduction, this pattern emerged. The final composition was then etched into two pieces of black slate. Etching provided a way to connect to the slate, a way of penetrating the stone. Through this process, the intrinsic characteristics of light and shadow are captured.


Using the collective research produced by the studio, and lessons learned from the precedent modeling, we develop ed a strategical means front loading a polyvalent set of iss ues: site selection, user/program type, client type, massing parti, precedent, culture, aesthetics, and tectonics. To frame this architecturally we might ask “how do you take someth ing you love (precedent) and co-opt or appropriate it towa rds something original or unique?” It is important that you begin to establish connections between decisions made at the abstract and disciplinary level with those at the conting ent level.
