Statement of Intent As designer, I seek to explore this environment through multiple perspectives, from the human to the infrastructural scale in a rigorous study of site and context. Architectural interventions demand a strong connection to the surrounding fabric to create a highly diverse yet connective public realm. As this realm grows exponentially and urban fabrics become denser, the role of technological and infrastructural systems must be in a constant evolution to meet the demands of self-sufficient cities. My work identifies struggling connections while forging new linkages between the human, social and technological realms to address rising global challenges.

Research and Remediation Center

Date: Fall 2017 Instructors: Luis Pancorbo and Edward Ford Project Location: The New River Gorge National River - Nuttallburg Town and Coal Mining Complex, West Virginia Project Brief:

This project, located in the former mining town of Nuttallburg West Virginia seeks to create a new connection between the abandoned mining town and the New River Gorge National River. This 10,000 Sq ft visitor and environmental remediation center is sited along the rivers edge leading to the base of the historic tipple structure, which formally loaded coal onto railroad cars moving through the site. The project is designed as a modularized system, which can grow and compress over time. Through the introduction of new industrial infrastructures, the design has the ability to construct and itself using material offloaded from the existing freight railroad. As such, the project becomes a new industrial piece to this post industrial site.

| Post Industrial Appalachia |

Post Industrial Appalachia forms a new entrance to the site, framing the view of the tipple as one moves into the town. The massing consists of a series of heavy timber trusses supported by steel support towers over the New River Gorge National River. A series of Cross Laminated Timber modules are offloaded from the train and inserted into the truss by the overhead crane system, forming the programmatic blocks. Embedded into the hill, a bar of services containing mechanical and storage spaces form the spine of the project. In section, the truss seeks to minimize impact on the existing land, while keeping most of the program on grade with the parking area to preserve accessibility throughout the lower site. Because of this, Post Industrial Appalachia forms a new connection between the existing town and the river, negotiating the steep terrain and existing infrastructural pieces of the site to create a new and dynamic insertion into the towns fabric.

Post Industrial Appalachia The site located along the banks of the New River Gorge National River contains a steep topography, sloping up from the river over 80’ in elevation. As a result, the form of the building was determined by this topography, as well as the active CSX train line below, requiring 20’ of clearance to the top of the locomotive. The heavy rock outcropping along the shoreline act as the foundational system for a series of steel towers supporting the truss and the crane above.

01

Baseline Infrastructural All Infrastructural pieces including support towers, crane and foundational systems are in place on site and allow for enough clearance for the train below. These act as the initial framework for the heavy timber truss assembly to be inserted into. The crane structure is utilized to offload modules and materials from the train and move them throughout the site as needed to facilitate the variability of the structural system over time.

02

3/4 Truss System The 160’-0” heavy timber truss is assembled on the staging platform to the east and is placed on its foundation and the support tower through the use of the overhead crane. This truss will house interior program blocks with an observation point at the end inside of the tower. The height of the truss is dictated by the 20’ clearance of the underside of the adjacent Tipple structure, creating a relationship to the existing infrastructural typologies on the site.

03

Full Truss System The full truss system adds a 40’-0” cantilevered extension on the end of the support tower, allowing for the addition of lecture spaces suspended below over the New River Gorge National River, creating an intimate connection between visitors and the class 5 (double Z) rapids below.

01 New River Gorge National River This project is situated within the lower valley of the New Rover Gorge National River. The tower assemblies form a row of industrial infrastructures which support the crane structure above. The design utilizes the existing rock outcroppings of the river as the foundations for the tower, allowing for a minimum encroachment on the town behind. The project, like the tipple becomes a new beacon along the gorge, acting as a way point for hikers and a docking point for rafters throughout the area while providing unprecedented views above the ‘Double Z’ Rapids raging below

02 A New ‘Station’ of Travel

01

By placing the program within the trusses and embedding the infrastructural systems and facilities into the hillside, a new promenade is created into the site ending at the Tipple structure. This move preserves the former loading tracks which lead up the Tipple, from which coal was loaded and moved to the rest of the United States. The materiality of the weathered Steel Grating is meant to evoke the existing industrial character of the site, evoking the rough material qualities of Appalachia. Throughout the site, the new overhead crane structure becomes an important beacon, communicating the potential variability and reorganization of the design over time.

03 Open Spaces The modularized CLT assembly systems allows for the creation of large open spaces, fostering a habitable work environment for visitors and researchers alike. The CLT allows for a minimalist interior devoid of any joints which creates a contrast between the exterior truss assembly. The space is intended to be transparent to the outside, with expansive windows located on the outer edge of the module while the inner edge adjacent to the exterior circulation path has a screening system built into it. The modules allow for shelving and table units to be integrated into the wall system, while mechanical piping and radiant heating are embedded into the raised floor system.

02

Each block of program is connected to each other through a transparent glass assembly, blurring the line between the interior and exterior. This assembly is constructed of structural glass, devoid of mullions to maintain full transparency through the structure. This space is protected from the sun by the exterior grating system wrapping the truss assembly. As a series of connective un-programed spaces, the glass volumes become social incubators, which through pivot doors have the ability to fully open to the outside during the warmer months. The exteriors of the program blocks are clad in a dark wood cladding, providing a visual contrast through the exterior shading system.

Minto Alaska Community Center

Date: Fall 2017 Instructors: Mathew Jull | Arctic Design Group | Teammates: Michael Tucker, Samantha Kokenge | Project Location: Minto, Alaska Project Brief: Water, in each of its three states, possesses powerful qualities. More over, as it changes its properties through freezing and thawing, water’s capabilities change as well. Using natural phenomena, such as sunlight and wind, how can the power of water be enhanced? How can water be utilized as a natural ‘material’ to develop a set of spatial parameters in the Arctic? Through a series of modulated systems, can water be harnessed and aggregated to form new types of spatial conditions? How can building modules use both these natural and artificially generated sources to create new spatial typologies which respond to the Arctic’s drastic seasonal changes? Harnessing the carrying capacity of wind, can building form and facade be accumulated into a new form to collect wind born snow, which through various collection techniques will be able to insulate and supplement wall systems and assemblies through the build-up of seasonal mass.

| Shifting States |

The town of Minto, Alaska will be used as a laboratory for understanding the prevalence and flow of water through an urban area, by identifying the sources of water and snow throughout the urban core. Water exists in various forms, from basic surface runoff to the vapor generated by everyday human activities. Through the lens of water, we propose an aggregation of these systems into a mixed-use community center, a program that has been discussed for the town for decades. Mixed use programs demand a flexible spatial typology, requiring a dynamic built enclosure.

Re-imagining the Dissemination of Data

Date: Fall 2016 Instructors: Shiqiao Li Project Location: The National Mall - Washington D.C

| Digital Space |

The Museum of the Digital Environment seeks to act as a Project Brief: linkage between the existing institutions of the Smithsonian. This museum seeks to rethink the relationship of the visitor and the way they access information through an un-curated, decentralized format of digital information technology. By providing the physical infrastructures and systems required for the digitalization of over 137 Million artifacts in the collection, this site on the National Mall becomes the epicenter of research and public relations for the institution, becoming a forum of interactive information flows. Moving deep into the 21st century, the role this information must be rethought in the realm of digital tools and objects which surround oneself at all times, influencing the decision we make and the efficiency of our world. The design is based upon the organization of a QR code and bar code, creating a hierarchy of space in a decentralized design. Because of this there is not a clear movement through the building to the user. Instead, they begin to experience different spaces in different successions, allowing for a diverse and rich experience. The building is divided into a series of 5 circulation cores running across the site, anchored by a conference tower and a infrastructural systems core housing the computing servers of the building. These cores rise to the West and dematerialize toward the east becoming level with the institution while breaking apart toward the U.S Capital, creating a new massing typology on the National Mall. The exhibit spaces are a series of modules spread throughout the site, containing interactive screen and glass displays, allowing the user to experience information through the movement of their body. This creates a new environment, anchored by various other building services, such as offices, habitat modules, dining facilities and multipurpose event spaces. The building, through this massing strategy inserts itself into the context without overpowering it, creating a publicly available forum to digital information.

Inter-modal Housing Network

Date: Fall 2015 Instructors: Pankaj Vir Gupta, Inaki Alday, Eric Barr Project Location: New Delhi, India Project Brief:

Re-centering Delhi is a three year research initiative addressing the connections of the city of New Delhi to the Yamuna River, one of the most heavily polluted river systems in the world. Through various site interventions, the goal of the studio is to restitch the urban fabric of the heavily disjointed city and reconnect that fabric to the desolate Yamuna Floodplain. This studio spent a week on site in the city of New Delhi, India to document, experience, and propose new projects both along the floodplain and in the inner city. Through on-site experience, key infrastructural areas, such as mobility, housing, public space and trash remediation were identified as key project rivers in the overall master plan.

This particular intervention seeks to break the physical barrier formed by the existing regional rail system, which separates the northern and southern sections of the city. This particular site, the Tilak bridge is one of the only pedestrian crossing points for over a Kilometer and is one of the most heavily traveled secondary roads linking the cities cultural monuments. The site furthermore represents a prime area of intervention for an inter-modal transport hub, which contains two major metro stations and an underutilized regional station, all of which are heavily disconnected from each other despite being less then a kilometer apart. This proposal seeks to connect these mobility systems, while integrating a new housing typology to bridge the regional rail embankment, creating cross pedestrian access from north to south, thus reconnecting the northern and southern sections of the city.

Housing blocks, plugged into the sides of the existing rail embankment contain commercial spaces on the ground level, and residential units in the upper half. The middle of the blocks form a communal outdoor space, level with the central circulation platforms. This space, open on both sides allow the project and the city to visually connect , reinforcing the restricting of the site. Above, the residential blocks will be crisscrossed by skybridges, allowing unhindered circulation between buildings, while offering physical connections between multiple units. Underneath, new utility corridors, adjacent to the existing tracks will be created to service the project and feed into the proposed remediation infrastructures East of the site. On the ground level, new market spaces branch out from the central spine, extending out toward the existing roads, and into the surrounding urban context, while new roads will be created under the rail embankment to connect both sides of the project. Architecturally, the buildings are built around the idea of the solid vs void. The housing blocks, built of concrete form a solid extrusion, creating a sense of control and habitability. This extrusion is linked through the void. a transparent louvered cladding, which forms the main circulation bar. This transparency allows the public spaces to connect to both the city and the inner circulation corridor. As a result, the building appears as a built object, yet allows the city fabric to pass through the public space. As the project moves down the rail line, each housing block decrease in elevation by 15’, allowing it to blend into the existing landscape.

05 | Hand Drawings Date: 2014 - 2018 Using pen and pencil, these drawings are completed in my free time as a hobby, exploring various historic buildings and places. I choose to draw in black and white to preserve a sense of history in the drawing to allow for dramatic contrasts throughout the drawings while also maintaining control of the tonal values throughout the image. The sketches on the left are a sampling of vignette style analysis drawings of case study buildings.

Most of my photography over the past few years consists of primarily urban night explorations in regards to light, motion and scale. Through these explorations, I seek to highlight the variability in landscapes, whether they be the movement of a car, the imprint of pedestrians in a long exposure of the temporality of objects within a space. To achieve these shots, there is a high degree of difficulty finding the moment, whether it be through the subject matter, the timing of the photograph or the juxtapositions of multiple elements throughout the frame. The challenges and the unintended results are what drive me as a photographer. Through these challenges, I tend to constantly shift the scales of the subject matter, from the wide expanses of a city, to the perspective of an ant on the ground to a single water droplet, precariously hanging off of a tree branch. Photography allows me to explore the world in different ways, to expose the inherent dynamism of both the natural and constructed reality.
