Phoenix is a major growing city, which is why I proposed my crop circle cities for 2070. I wanted to preserve the farmland while still being able to construct on these areas to accomodate the growth of the city and the population. Combining these two aspects will also have a smaller impact on the environment and decrease the footprint we leave. I designed elevated mounds composed of 6 units each with outer walls and roofs accessible to cropping; thus creating an agricultural and self sustainable community.

For this dmv and public market project in san diego, i proposed extending volumes towards attractions nearby, to create a community space fit for the neighborhood and the public. I wanted the surroundings of the site to affect the programs in the project, to tailor it specifically to the site. The open spaces are meant for outdoor gatherings, while the programs (dmv, market, public plaza and student center) are in the interior of the volumes. The programs are geared towards student living due to the proximity of the site to the university and dorms.

Currently, the Van buren area in phoenix is commonly known for drugs and crime, but despite its current reputation, it was once known as “the gateway to phoenix”. MY vision for this project was to be able to overlook the negative connotation of the area by creating a space for housing and communal activities. In the 1940’s it was considered the “motel capital of the world” due to the density of overnight accomodations. The visitors were greeted by endless sucessions of of neon signs, which later became a symbol and icon for van buren. The neon signs and motels were my main inspiration for idea and concept.

my areas of interest include mostly photography, but include digital line drawings as well as collages and interpretive drawings. photography: capturing architecture moments through a camera lens is something i enjoy mostly when i travel. to me, It is like meeting new people from different places; all different with different traits and personalities in varying cities and countries. line drawings: accentuating shapes and contours with simple lines allow me to minimalize an image for a different appreciation.
