ROWHOUSE

Project: Rowhouse

studio:

Spring 2016

Description:

The focus of our studio this semester is housing. The term began with us completing a precedent study from a long list of housing projects includind single family, high- rise, mid-rise, low-rise high density, etc. These studies were meant to help us learn about different housing typologies and the elements that are unique to each. from there we were tasked with designing a singl family rowhouse. applying what i had learned from my precedent study on a low-rise high denstiy,courtyard housing complex near copenhagen, i wanted to design a rowhouse with exterior and interior courtyard space. these spaces could act as connections to nature as well as privacy buffers. i decided to use this partial split level design because it allowed for two columns of circulation to be left open through the house, allowing sunlight to pass through all three levels.

DESIGNING FROM WITHOUT

Project:

Designing From Without

studio:

Fall 2014

Site:

Pogue’s Garage-Downtown Cincinnati @ corner of Elm and W 4th

Description:

‘designing from without’ wanted us to explore how the surroundings of a building can influence the design of its exterior and interior. To begin, we were given two programs, an olympic-sized pool and a theatre. and then were tasked with finding a third to help link the two otherwise unconnected programs. The design of my final project was influenced largely by the surrounding buildings and the garage below which our building sat. I extruded the structural bays of the parking garage to create concrete bands that would wrap my programs; the space between the bands would become windows that would allow differing amounts of light into the spaces based on how much would be needed for the program. for my interstitual space, I decided to create a multi-terraced park that would allow people to relax and look at the building and city while waiting for a show or race.

DESIGNING FROM WITHIN

Project: Designing From Within

Studio:

Fall 2014

Description:

Opposingly from the previous project, this project focused on the interior space and how it affected the design of the exterior. Throughout the process of this project, we studied how the proportions of the human body relate to space. By looking at measurments taken in various positions, I derived a series of spaces that responded to certain activities, i.e. sitting or leaning. through a series of itterations I developed five models that related to one of these specific positions or bodily proportions. I then had to combine the five models to make a final spatial model. I focused on how the movement through my spaces was connected and would give the repeated sense of compression then release.

TECTONIC STUDIES

Project: Tectonic Studies

studio:

Summer 2015

Description:

For this study we focused on tectonics in architecture and how it relates to the fabrication of models and conveyance of ideas. Specifically, materials should be used in ways that are inherent to the properties of the material.it was also important for us to look at these techniques at varying scales to discover differet potentials. the first technique we focused on was paper folding, which is a very diverse fabrication method and can be directly related to folded plate structures. this technique produces a light and flexible, yet structural form. a second technique was cnc milling which has the capability of producing more complex, solid forms. for this reason, I used it to create a topography for one of my paper structures to sit on. Finally, 3d printing is capable of producing very complex forms with great accuracy. With this in mind, i designed a model that would create interesting spatial qualities, but woulf be hard to produce with any other fabrication technique beside 3d printing.

HOUSE OF QI GONG AND KUNG FU

Project:

House of Qi gong and Kung fu

studio:

Summer 2015

Site:

Northside Cincinnati

Description:

This project began after our tectonic studies, and we were taksed with implimenting one of the techniques that we found intriquing into our designs. I chose to encorporate the paper folding technique, from which I directly derived the design of my buildings. i aslo wanted to encorporate a couple key points into my design. First, I wanted my complex to keep an emphasis on its connection to nature. Second, I wanted the building to tectonically relate to the string site model I had created. To achieve these challenges i looked towards two precedent projects,peter Zumthor’s Serpentine Pavilion and Frei Otto’s Munich Olympic Park. For my final concept, I created this screen that would drape over the buildings, allowing them to remain open to the outdoors but still be protected from the elements, thus creating a blurred line between inside and out, like Zumpthor’s pavilion. This technique also related to our tectonic studies because it was inherently easy to tie the fabric to the site model, just like one of Otto’s structures.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Location Elkus Manfredi Architects (Boston)

Date:

Spring 2014

Work:

For my first co-op Experience, I worked extensively in the Design Development and Construction Document phases of projects. I gained great knowledge in sketch up and revit. a majority of my work went towards the creation of unit plans for a housing development in cambridge, although i was able to touch on many different projects in my time at the firm. A few examples include the design of a hotel facade, a design development package for a new office building, a construction document package for the same housing development as mentioned above, and the design of new elevators for a dorm building.

Fall 2015

Work:

My experien at FME gave me an invaluable look into the early design phases of projects. Throughout my time at FME, I was consistently on a design team working on the renovation of two old naval warehouses, but I was also often given the opportunity to work on proposals for new prokects. These proposals required me to perform extensive zoning research and then apply this knowledge to creating basic massing models and presentations for the clients. I also worked on the design of a new entrance for an office park, solar shade studies, and an addition to a historic office building. During my time at FME, I again gained great experience working in Revit.
