REVIT

My venture in Revit began with my first internship at SEPTA. I was hired to essentially teach the architects the basics of Revit and help them ________ their standards from AutoCAD into Revit. I had to teach myself how to use Revit in the process because I never learned before I was hired. After the Summer Internship, the following semester required learning Revit, in this case I had a headstart because of my previous knowledge of Revit.

A CAMEL INSPIRED DWELLING

Class: Design 8 | Semester: 2 (Spring 2015) | Location: Philadelphia University Project Length: 1 Month | Professor: Lauren Thomsen The camel is a phenomenal animal when you consider its amazing capabilities of adapting to hot and dry climates. Because of its transforming, shading, and absorbing abilities I am inspired to design a building based on these capabilities.

This dwelling takes 3 characteristics from the dromedarius camelius. These characteristics allow the camel to survive in it’s environment, and the goal of this project was to apply these ______ to a home in a similar environment.

The site chosen exemplifies the native habitat for many of the camels. The location of the home was specifically located in this area because of the vegetation as well as the proximity to a developed town or city.

It began through the form where it came from splitting and carving a cube.

PHOENIX YOUTH AND REFUGEE CENTER Class: Design 8 | Semester: 7 (Fall 2017) | Location: Jefferson University Project Length: 3 Months | Professor: Lauren Thomsen

The Youth and Refugee Center is inspired to help improve the refugee crisis many cities attain during a state struggle. It is also inspired to improve the city of Phoenix’s struggle with graduation children out of high school. With these two problems being a bearing on the city, this project was deveoped into being a place where youth and refugees would have the opportunity to improve on themselves and be assisted on their needs for developement for themselves and within their society.

Through all of these projects, I had the opporunity to improve my skills in AutoCAD, Rhino, Photoshop, and InDesign. The three programs are my favorite combination when puting together a project. While I have many skills with other programs, I find my strength and strongsuit in the combination of these and I continue to get better within each project and learn more. I love Revit, but I love these just as much.

Class: Design 6 | Semester: 6 (Spring 2017) | Location: Jefferson University Project Length: 1 Month | Professor: Katie MacDonald This project sites importance in education and how the system should go about it. In a program developed for the future, this library is designed for free education in which the mentors and the mentees will collaborate with each other to provide enough education for certification as well as free help from the mentees. Schematically, this building is developed into 3 spaces in which a person is best provided the ability to learn. Research, Study, and Application conquer how this building was designed and enforces a better learning environment.

THE SPIRAL Class: Design 4 | Semester: 4 (Spring 2016) | Location: Jefferson University Project Length: 1 Month | Professor: Trudy Watt The Spiral was an education center with a scheme about crowding program around an outdoor theatre space to promote the nature the building sits. The building is oriented towards the sun for proper sunlight, and provides an outdoor experience to allow for improved learning.

THE SPIRAL Class: Design 4 | Semester: 4 (Spring 2016) | Location: Jefferson University Project Length: 1 Month | Professor: Trudy Watt This glass pavilion competition design was looking to express a link between TJU and PhilaU, Portal took aspects of each school’s environment and implemented it in the design as optical illusion. The 1st portion emphasized the openess of Philadelphia University’s campus where the glass rises. Another portion emphasized the congested aspects of its location which TJU was based in the city. The last aspect emphasized the heart of each campus that acted as an optical illusion.
