ARCHITECTURAL PORTFOLIO


ABOUT ME

My journey to becoming an architect has

everything to do with process and evolution. I came into architecture school not even being able to score foam core cleanly and ended up being able to make a magnificent and spotless foam core model. Life is full of learning how to overcome challenges, but most important is to value what you have learned, how to trust yourself, and how to insert that into your professional life. Being able to trust myself never has been an easy task, but after learning that I have control of everything I do and to create some sort of ballance, I have learned how to trust myself and my abilities as a designer and builder.

I have come a long way in these few years in

architecture school. My portfolio will show my entire learning process and evolution. I will be showing these transitions throughout my education and professional career. This portfolio shows exactly who I am; a very hard working person who takes great amount of value and pride in his work.

GUNPO NATIONAL SPORTS CENTER _The Gunpo National Sports Center Competition project was the first design competition Austin Griffis and I had ever worked on. The most interesting part about our project was the site. Dealing with a site in such a dense city like Seoul was a complicated ordeal. The focus was to create a sports center that would have community functions (book cafe, lounge, cafe) all on the same level with the public. Above and below would be the sports programs (swimming pool, basketball, exercise, and badminton). It was the first time we also explained our ideas to a design team. Our team at Haenglim ended up winning the design compitiion and is now under construction.eam at

BURGE UNION : STUDENT VETERANS ASSOCIATION (SVA) _The university was in need for a Student Veterans Center where veterans can feel safe to come and study for exams and get their post-military academic life back together. My job was to make the Burge Union in Revit and to model this proposed, remodeled portion of the Burge. The client then uses this to gain funds for the remodel. Endowment would not fund the entire project, so the client wants to use the renderings to fund the remodel for all of its high quality furniture and technological equipment. _The most important part I took from this project was the ability to construct a digital model from beginning to end, was able to interact with the client, and prepare a series of images to the marketing department for the SVC. In all, the experience was very benifitial. Learning how to reproduce a BIM model from a series of prexisting plans.

_The Grand Canyon in Arizona is revered as one of the greatest wonders of the natural world. Its form is generated from thousands of years of weathered erosion presenting itself with many layers of plateaus, valleys, and vibrant layers of color. It defines every element when seen as something that is timeless, inevitable, and permanent. _Denim Jeans are most famously patented by Levi Strauss in 1873 for miners and cowboys. The durability and strength of jeans makes them incredibly long-lasting and appealing. They have now become one of the most permanent and timeless pieces of textile fashion in not only America, but the entire world. _One of the worlds most important religious literary works, the Holy Bible, has been one of the largest drivers of Christianity for thousands of years. It becomes the definition of something that is timeless, inevitable, and permanence based on the belief ideology of the beholder.

_The Travis County Courthouse was part of a proposed comprehensive design studio project worked on alongside a French exchange student, LĂŠo Coudert. We focused on designing a building focusing on the concept of repetition consisting of many different layers and dimensions to the feeling of the inside and outside of the courthouse. Each dimension would change until you arrived at the center: the courtroom where every dimension arrives in one space. We also put the location of the phase one courthouse in the very center of the site allowing the phase two courthouse to be located west and multi-purpose high-rise located south. The addition of a reflecting pool gave the building a feeling of civic-ness.

Opera | 29

_The Chicago Lyric Opera had a complicated programmatic and location issue. With it being placed at the confluence of the two main rivers in downtown Chicago, the Wolf Point site was uniquely complicated. Focusing on the views from the inside out towards the city and it’s presence as a beacon at the center of both rivers, it’s fan shape was an evident solution. Part of my main objective for the project was to solve the acoustical calculations and design of the auditorium with its swooping balconies and beautiful woodwork. Everything combined created an elegant space with near perfect acoustical properties and a special experience for patrons of the Chicago Lyric Opera.

Opera | 31

_The Chicago Lyric Opera project focused on three main concepts throughout the project: views of downtown, interaction with the community, and varying feelings through the use of materiality throughout the opera house. The shape of the opera lobby allows for a 180 degree view of the river and the city along it. In the rear side, there is a pedestrian street allowing a connection back to the community and giving life to the rear of the opera. Inside the opera, there is a focus on the strong feeling of light and brightness. Juxtaposed to the lobby, the interior of auditorium is composed of dark stained walnut slatted wood and the balconies of rich mahogany. This package offers a feeling of a powerful opera on the river.

SKETCH COURTESY PROF. SHANNON CRISS

_The KU Mobile Community Lab was founded on an idea of making a classroom on wheels that developed into much more. It became an object that can not only be a classroom on wheels, but also be a means of addressing community issues. In it’s entirety, it can be used as an elementary school room, science lab, conference space, art gallery, dining space, etc. To achieve this kind of flexibility, there are operable fold-up tables that are also duo-purpose as backrest for the bench, movable carts, seating, and a hatch with an sliding ramp. All create a very unique device for community engagement.

_The MoCOLAB was part of a semester long designbuild project pursued by my classmates and myself. We gutted, digital imaged, repaired, polished, and fabricated every component. The precision of this scale of a project drove the entire project. Everything was designed and built within a 1/16�. Most of us had little to know handson experience with construction. This was a very unique experience to have a set parameter in which to design and construct. As students, budgets and designing to fit a certain size is something we never have to think of. With the help from technology (CNC router and digital imaging software) we where able to achieve the precision necessary for a project of this scale.

AIRSTREAM_REPAIR _My job for this project was to repair and polish the Airstream. Ever since I was a child, Airstreams caught my eye with their polished, silver bullet style. When I first saw this 1974 Airstream, I wanted to make it shine and bring it back to its former glory and striking presesence in the city streetscape. A classmate, Johann Durรกn, and I spent over 200 long and painful hours polishing this Airstream to a mirror finish. _Other projects I did included making new wheel wells using plywood and EPDM, insulated and reapplied the metal bottom along with helping create the hatchback. This design build process allowed me to get a more in-depth experience of how things are assembled and the level of detailing required.

_The Donald Judd Museum displays how to take inspiration from your patron (Donald Judd) and using precedents that would usually not interest you and understanding its core concepts. I took inspiration from the artist (Donald Judd) and from an architect (Hertzog + De Meuron) and used the inspiration from their projects to create a museum very site specific for the Crossroads Arts District in downtown Kansas City, MO. In this museum, I focused on the views of the city making the building unique to only this site. I came to find that the site is directly in the middle of so many unique pieces of Kansas City. I angled the glazing in a way to capture all of the views I wanted patrons to see. I used materials such as Cor-Ten weathering steel and concrete panels to create the industrial aesthetic I was aiming for.

N _The Donald Judd Museum was designed to be a building that becomes very site-specific. With its location centrally located in the heart of the Crossroads, view would become the main focus. The Crossroads is known for the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts, downtown proximity, and for the signage (Western Auto, etc.). Using the inspiration from Donald Judd’s famous framed boxes, I designed a simple yet effective museum that become art in itself and is a direct result of Judd and his industrial aesthetic. With its industrial aesthetic, the museum would be able to blend it with the warehouse district it inhabits.

DONALD JUDD_DETAILS _The design of the lobby desk was to be as building specific as the building is site specific. The desk was designed to the angles of the cuts of the museum along with following the same material palette as the exterior of the museum. Cor-Ten weathering steel was used to clad the interior as well as the exterior. The compressed recycled paper counter tops allowed for a very durable and rigid material for the employees. The lobby desk becomes the sculptural element of the entry into the museum.

Library | 63

_The beginning of this project started with thinking of the program as basic function of what should be linked together and what makes the most sense per each level. From there, I would mass these spaces depending on importance. Next, I looked at great architects like Le Corbusier and Mies Van Der Rohe to get inspiration for my library making a library with the combination of the Villa Savoye and Crown Hall. In the end, I created a very spacious and light feeling library based of the premises of logic and openness.

N _This studio project was about returning to traditional methods of design: constructing and designing everything by hand. Unlike the previous semester where we used Revit and other digital medias exclusively as a design tool, I was taught how to use my hand and eyes to think and design. Understanding the rudimentary way of programing a space was a huge drive of this design. Keeping the community functions on ground level and open to the public and keeping all library functions in an open-air space. Once elevating the library functions to the second floor, I was able to create a very stoic feeling with the columns. The powerful gesture of lifting program up allowing for a monumental entry was important feeling I wanted to establish for the whole building.

_Prefabricated housing is a very interesting concept of the 21st century. My concept centralized around suspending a structure over the site while not harming the space beneath creating a building that was not inflicting harm to its surroundings. Also, incorporating a bike lifestyle for this new community would be essential to this prefabricated design. _When designing the residential house, I took inspiration from concepts such as Archigram and how their “creatures� would be elevated to be walking above ground and being independent of the surface. Since Archigram focused on the modern plan of a city and on the insect as a structure, I followed this modern idealogy and concepts from them for inspiration of the prefabricated housing units.

PREFABRICATED HOUSING : DISASTER RELIEF


Prefab Housing | 71

_This studio project was the first building design project. It was the first take on balancing computer programs like Revit and Rhino to produce an architectural design. This project was based on low income housing and prefabricated design. I based it on anything that can be built in a warehouse, structural skeleton built on site while the house is being fabricated, and then the house is placed on the cradle once transported. This project could be produced fast and efficiently. Since the house would be elevated, it would reduce any type of water damage or debris from below. Fast and efficiency make this a very efficient and useful project that could be a great solution to disaster relief.

RIVERFRONT ACTIVATION _As part of my final semester thesis project at the University of Kansas I looked at the Kansas City River Market neighborhood for inspiration. Kansas City is going through a massive boom due to tech companies and other business’ relocating. With the addition to of the KC Streetcar, the downtown area is experiencing a large increase of activity with new developments, venues, restaurants, housing, etc. The very historic River Market has the most potential with it being stocked full of old warehouses and a thriving farmers market. I saw this area as the place with the most potential. The one issue that still exists in the area is that the riverfront is not used like in many major cities. It is the largest misused space with huge potential and make the River Market area a even more unique addition to the city giving the people and the city a place for recreation, entertainment, and sense of pride for their community. With the River Market being the foundation of Kansas City, it really needs an icon and embrace the riverfront for future development. Since the I-70 North Loop and the train isolates the neighborhood from downtown, there needs to be implementation to bring everything back together: to create a sense of community, health, and culture. 1942

the Street Car and River Front through the synergy of community, health and culture. By activating the riverfront; the community will be able to interact and participate through a mixed use of experiences – Allowing the River Market community to gather, socialize and linger. We envision a neighborhood that is active, spontaneous and intriguing – a River Market that is dynamic and authentic to the remainder of downtown. The River Market’s isolation from the city is a matter that left unchanged could damper development in this part of town.

_This was done in an effort to create a sense of identity for the KC River Market and create culture through the activation of the River Front. By moving the existing rail line, I was able to design and create lively space through walkability, bike paths, green space, performance space, and pop up’s that will make the River Market dynamic and authentic. _In doing this, the intention was to be developing a community that is not only connected to the rest of Kansas City; but one that is able to stand alone and take advantage of the community, health, and culture the River Market has to offer. _The walkability of the community was very important. To create a connected community, walkability from the newly constructed KC Streetcar would be crucial for not only the locals, but for people visiting from outside the community to stop and linger in the River Market neighborhood.

_The intentions of moving the rail and capping over the railroad was to create more real estate for the community to interact more fluidly with the riverfront. By moving the rail 245’ to the south, it more than doubled the size of the park area from 650,000 sq/ft to over 2,000,000 sq/ft. _This would allow for a more connected bike path connecting Columbus Park to the West Bottoms. It would also create space for recreation including a pond, soccer and baseball fields, space for yoga and aerobics, and many other activities. _By bridging over the I-70 North Loop with a park, it would act as a pedestrian bridge connecting the River Market back to the Central Business District of downtown Kansas City all the way to the riverfront in a fluid path.

_Traveling and experiencing different cultures is a crucial part about understanding the role of architecture in the 21st century. After being on two study abroad programs, I have around the world in places such as Germany, Switzerland, South Korea, Japan, and China. The role of the architect is becoming increasingly a global network. It is known that architecture is being done in the US, but a great amount is done over-seas in places around south western Asia. After being to many cities in Asia, it is incredibly true. The six months I spent in South Korea where some of the most influential times of my life. _Before going to Korea, I did not know what role I wanted to play in the architectural profession, but working in the global architecture sector is something I would like to pursue. Traveling and experiencing different cultures and ways of life is incredibly exciting and rewarding.
