my approach to design is explorative, bold, and collaborative; architecture is the human experience and thus must strive to create a version of the future that we are proud to contribute to.

Imbalance

Imagined within New Orleans’ CBD, the proposal works to unify both its setting and visitors within the building through sectional relationships, moving from the public ground floor to the increasingly private upper offices. Offsetting of a parti cube with a centralized courtyard allows for grand terrace spaces on the interior and exterior, made possible by steel cantilevers and trusses within the proposal’s structure. Openness is welcomed through a transparent and fluid ground floor broken into four permeable interiors, as well as open office plans above.

scenario for growing resilience through education

An everchanging climate urges for sustainable resilience in the built environment. The proposal links a resilient community with the crucial education of future and present generations; located in an industrial segment of New Orlean’s Garden District, the project places itself as a center of possibility and an extension of sustainable landscaping. An open and fluid plan intiates a close relationship between what is built environment and what is natural environment.

interstitial circulation for community experience

The proposal investigates interstitial spaces through the implementation of exterior-interior spaces in the exploration of a community library space in Nerja, Spain. The space progresses through stepping public spaces Circulation creates a continual experience for the user as slow and fast movement are divided into ramps and stairs, intentionally creating connections between different programmatic spaces.

Proportional Equilibrium

Posed with creating a computational ruleset through Grasshopper based off of a precedent, the proposal creates a masterplan scale of architecture based entirely on Piet Mondrian’s compositions. Moving from the scale of a facade, to a building, to a block, and to an overall masterplan, the project computes the same ruleset of space division with optimized iterations accounting for certain optimal features, computing an overall score to determine the best solution.

The question of “How do we remember?”, in relation to historical racial injustices, is analyzed through looking at monuments in America’s public spaces. The course of the semester was spent engaging with the community of a previously segregated New Orleans park, proposing a hypothetical monument on the space that acknowledges this history, and finally holding an exhibition to showcase the findings.

A new point of interest is created within the overall city, with two different approaches to night and day.

In the day, the pavilion is a white abstract beacon to the plaza. In the night, it stands as two linear strips of light, bringing attraction to the square and marking its entry.

All elements join in union to create both porousity and solidity at different moments, with the lightness of the column balancing an opaque space that one can occupy above.

A GEOMETRIC COMPLETION 2

The Concentrico festival explores the possibilities of a temporary pavilion installation that reimagines a public square in Spain. The design proposes to filter the space of the square, creating an interstitial entry space within the from the street, as well as a second experience where the city is meant to be percieved only through the intentional viewing of the sky and building roofs nearby,

Material Process Research

investigation of local material extraction, usage, and reusage

The research focuses on the ever-relevant topics of design for dissassembly, material extraction, lumber offcut usage, and assisted migration; and how these processes can contribute to sustainable construction. The knowledge gathered culminates into a hypothetical reimagination of the RIOS building facade and courtyard in Los Angeles, implementing all the processes into one synthesized design.

As urban environments face increasing housing shortages, the concept of a cohousing community with sharable amenities is posed; the proposal offers a community centered around sustainable agriculture cultivation and culinary practices. Community farms varying in privacy form the basis of the proposal and emerge an environmentally conscious lifestyle in the residential New Orleans community.

Thesis Preparation

The semester begins with a deep investigation into Le Corbusier’s Unite D’Habitation as a project following an architectural thesis of urban living as a highly efficient machine, looking at related projects, figures, and events. Thesis topics of interest are then investigated and researched, and the concept of the architectural threshold as a potential for the reimagination of community interaction between the domestic and the urban is explored for a future thesis.

Architecture is most successful when an integration of exterior and interior, and what defines the threshold between the two, is explored and the concept of an enclosure is experimented with Architecture within today’s rapidly changing society and environment must reconsider the value of temporary architecture and re-evaluate the present notion that all buildings are designed to be permanent. Rather, the lifespan of the built environment should be acknowledged. Architectural Thesis Topics, Idea Mapping
