Body & Motion Location: Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA Class: Foundations of Design 2 Year: 2018 Developing an understanding of the body’s interaction with architecture by studying motion on a staircase. Initially, the stair was analyzed, hand drafted, and digitally modeled. Following was a choreographed interaction on the staircase that was captured within video. Point sets were used to trace the motion of different parts of the body and create depictions of movement through the space. • Hand drafting • Drawing • AutoCAD • Photography • Photoshop • Rhino


Point Cloud of the actors’ movement and interaction on the stairs


Digital Fabrication Class Special Topics: CNC Furniture Year: 2017 Explorations in CNC milling and fabrication. The creation of installations varying in scale revolving around the concept of user interaction and engagement. Digital and hand drawings to create and articulate operative concepts, with mechanical CNC milled final assemblies refined with more tradition machining and means of post production. • Sketches • Rhino • RhinoCAM • CNC Milling • Post Production • Illustrator

The Essence of the Forest Location: High School Park, Elkins Park, PA Class: Foundation Architecture Design 1 Year: 2017 An assigned section of the park was measured using only the human body as scale. The site was hand drawn using measurements and phenomena derived from the body. The quantitative and qualitative aspects were recorded. More information was then extracted from the site using Rhino to document its conditions. After the initial study a smaller section of the park was taken to deeper analyze the space.

Waffle Model Class: Visual Literacy for Architects 2 Year: 2017 Bridging digital and physical modeling techniques to bring to life undulating 3D forms created within Rhino. The work explores processes of design and production. • Rhino • 123D Make • Laser cutting • Model making • Illustrator Image 8: Front Elevation

Natural Patterning Class: Visual Literacy for Architects 2 Year: 2017 Using a pattern occurring within nature, it was then reduced to its essential forms and logics. Transformations occurred to accentuate formal relationships within the constraints of the natural pattern. The resultant geometries were modeled and their production documented. • Rhino • Laser Cutting • Model making • Illustrator

Crystalline Pavilion Class: Visual Literacy for Architects 1 Year: 2016 Created with a formal language derived from minerals. The crystals created the conceptual and formal underpinning for the project. The pavilion and site are meant to reflect their roots and accommodate interaction with the human body. • Sketching • Model making • Hand drafting
