ERASING BOUNDARY Seattle, Washington [5th year]

We chose to explore the boundary between the physical environment and the natural environment, inspired by our trip to Seattle. This project was a conceptual representation of what we perceived as erasing boundary. We represented the man-made by an overwhelming and seeminly continuous metal grid. At the corner, nature (represented by the organic wood structure) is a powerful force trying to take over and break the monotony and rigidity of the man-made.

THERMAL BATHS + MARINE CENTER Seattle, Washington [5th year]

The challenge of this project was to erase / blur the boundaries between a thermal bath and our chosen anthithetical program. Our concept was “Nature First” - inspired by Seattle’s integration between the built and natural environment. Our main design driver was the way the built environment [resembled by the grid] is forced to wrap around the natural environment [resembled by the thermal baths]. This premise inspired all our other design decisions such as the floating mass (housing our marine research center) and the in-between spaces. The project is essentially an extension of Seattle’s waterfront and allows visitors to experience the way nature completely takes over the built environment as he/she transcends linearly through the space. 9

CHAPEL IN THE WOODS Ames, Iowa [3rd year]

This chapel was designed to provide visitors with a place for contemplation and reflection in the tranquility of literally “floating in the woods�. In the heart of the chapel, there are no solid walls, compelling visitors to feel completely immersed in landscape. There is an element of surprise from the point of entrance to the central space, where visitors first descend down into the ground and through a long wood hallway which ultimately then opens to a very exposed and natural space floating above the woods.The materiality for this project was very natural, with wood being the main choice.

the wood slats provide a partially enclosed space that encourage a connection with nature, inviting feelings of contemplation and peacefulness while sitting immersed in the serenity of the lush surroundings

the wood cladded hallway is sunk into the ground for added strcutural support, to frame visitors’ views, and to enhance the the visual and spatial experience of entering the very open chapel space

visitors descend down into the ground and enter into a darker wood clad corridor that leads to the main space - a very open and airy space that floats above the ground

FIBER HOUSE Savannah, Georgia [3rd year]

The Fiber House is a mixed use building; it is primarily a dorm for SCAD freshmen majoring in fiber with a museum showcasing students’ work on the first floor. It provides a very unique living experience, transforming the idea of common rooms into fiber inspired “breakout” spaces. No floor is idential; each floor has its own personality, inspired from a specific aspect of the fiber and textile industry. The four aspects that have been developed into spaces are screen printing, weaving, spinning, and tie dye.

INDIAN FASHION STORE Omaha, Nebraska [2nd year]

This inspirations for this store, situated in the historic Old Market of Omaha, were Indian fabrics, colors, and patterns. I wanted the space to be both a unique cultural and spatial experience for visitors from the moment they entered.These experiences are created through the powerful and intricate lighting patterns along the main circulation sequence,the abundance of color and heavily embroidered garments contrasting with the darker and rougher wall material, and the unique clothing display.

TRAVEL + BLOGGING Anywhere and everywhere [Feb 2017]

LIFE OF A SUMMER INTERN IN NYC

I recently started a travel blog when I studied abroad in Ireland. I loved doing it so much that I decided to keep it going upon returning, and it has since grown and I now have readers all over the world. It has been so fulfilling seeing it grow and it allowed me to discover a hobby I didn’t know I had. It is aimed at young adults (basically like me), focusing on aspects such as travel, internships, studying + living abroad, and just a love of life. www.aditilostabroad.com
