What is Architecture

Computer Skills

AutoCAD

Architecture is wise. It must understand the user and cater to the needs and desires. Architecture is a camera. It frames and captures views, light, time; moments.

Adobe Photoshop

Architecture is a machine. It produces, it works, it makes, it responds.

Adobe Illustrator

Architecture is a leader. It guides, influences, showcases, teaches.

Google Sketchup

Architecture is adaptable. It changes, it grows, it evolves. Architecture is.

less units offers more opportunities to foster tight-knit connections

As life is becoming increasingly fast paced, the idea of

a neighborhood or community has become more obsolete. Young urbanites have adapted to a more nomadic form of living, spending brief amounts of time in many different apartments or condos. This form of living is not ideal for the development of a community, and as modern day gypsies continue their lifestyle, changes must be made

Convergence

Over time, as Tempe developed into the lively city it is today, the Convergence site remained as an unused plot of narrow land. Convergence emphasizes the land form, following the curve and enhancing the existing landscape. A running/biking trail lines the east side of the site, which acts as a great connection to nearby Tempe Town Lake and the surrounding communities. Further east, past the bike trail, lies an undisturbed desert nature reserve that became a focal point of view. Convergence housing propsoal optimizes the expansive view to the east while offering glimpses of Tempe Town Lake’s skyline on the west.

Site Plan + Sections Scale : 1/64� = 1’ -0�

With the first level of units elevated above the burm that holds the bike path, the more public elements were able to be housed underneath. This vertical separation allows for more ground level community spaces while giving the lifted units more privacy. The ground level clubhouse separates visitor and resident parking, utilizing the full length of the site. This separation allowed for a vast open community space beneath the east wing of the building, physically connecting to the bordering bike path.

Platform 04 brings a new face to the design school at Arizona State University’s Tempe Campus. The Art Warehouse, located just west of the design school, is an older building reserved for wood working, metals, fibers and art classes. With strong street presence and character, the Art Warehouse has endless potential for being a powerful entrance into campus, as well as a new branch of Design South. Acting as both a physical and metaphorical connection between the Art Warehouse and Design School, Platform 04 fosters collaboration between disciplines while embracing the eccentricity of the students that attend.

Senior Project Catalogue

The Fall semestor of senior year was a collaborative

studio with Arizona State’s partner school in Palestine, An-Najah University. In additon to our individual projects, as a studio we decided to document each project in a catalogue that I was tasked with providing.The layout was composed of five 8.5 inch by 22 inch spreads, resulting in 10 pages total. These 10 pages described the what, why, and how of each group’s project.

Failing Wright Exhibition Poster

As Failing (W)right was the exhibition of the senior studio’s
