SOCIAL BEHAVIORS A STUDY IN ARCHITECTURAL ANALYSIS YEAR 1 : PROJECT 1

This project was part of an introduction into architectural understanding and analysis. This drawing aims to give a illustration of the social dynamics & movements that occur within a given space. The social habits of individuals are influenced by the dynamics of structure, form, material, and light - all aspects that architects can provide and dictate. The events in this drawing are a reflection of a gathering of young university age students, and a progression of their movements over the course of the evening, in the context of a student’s living room.

ARTISAN TRADE COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS & APARTMENTS IN BEITH, SCOTLAND YEAR 2 : PROJECT 1

This project was to design a building that facilitates living, exhibition, and workshop space for the local craftsmen in a small town in Scotland. This design proposes a way for the community to interact and engage with the creative process and bring trade revenue to the town, as well as provide some areas of privacy among the aspects of communal living necessary for the inhabitants. The building provides spaces for living, teaching, producing (workshop), and exhibition.

COMMUNITY INDOOR MARKET IN BEITH, SCOTLAND YEAR 2 : FINAL PROJECT

A design proposal for an indoor market space within a small town in Scotland. This design aims to provide a new collective source of community, culture, & commerce.

The initial design concept was determined by the idea of an inner concourse that circulates through the interior of the space. The concept models developed the idea, featuring a promenade that runs along the interior, placing market stalls alongside the path of circulation. a. Elevation Concept Sketch b. Concept Model c.

PLANS + ELEVATION

The floor plans illustrate how the concept of the interior circulative concourse was carried out in the final design proposal. The ground floor features a double height interior courtyard in the centre, and storage + kitchen spaces underneath the first floor level walkway. The first floor has market stalls aligned along the edges of the walkway, and office + meeting spaces in the back. a. Ground Floor Plan b. First Floor Plan

UNIVERSITY OF ARCHITECTURE IN GLASGOW, SCOTLAND Year 3 : Project 1

This project is a design for a architecture university as an addition to the Glasgow School of Art campus in Scotland. The proposal aims to expand architectural education through emphasis & incorporation of the pre-existing community, in forms of both academic and physical structures.

The site is located directly in the centre of the city, marking the transition of building types from residential, in pink, to commercial, in blue. This orientation within the urban setting provides the opportunity to incorporate both of these urban spheres in the academic setting.

Spatial Arrangment + Floor plans The design of the interior spaces were based upon the concept of a transition of public to semi-public, then to private spaces vertically arranged. The ground floor transitions to the first with a combination of public and semi-public spaces. The top two levels of the building feature the private academic areas, with all studios and crit spaces. Reflecting the ambition of the school, the incorporation of semi-public accessible spaces is very important, and is reflected in the lecture theatre and workshop spaces being available to the public on occasion.

PORTABLE EXHIBITION PAVILION IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA Year 3 : Final Project

This project is a design proposal for a portable exhibition space, intended to travel to different cultures, contexts, and climates. Los Angeles is chosen as an example location to provide context & illustrate practicality and design intent. The ambition for this design is to place the exhibition in urban spaces that have become disused & neglected, in an effort to cultivate

& maintain public urban green spaces. This revitalisation is aimed towards renewing a sense of character + community into the urban environment through a focus on art and design This was a group project with an engineer and quantity surveyer, to give some understanding of the full process in a professional design proposal. All work shown is the product of our team’s collaboration, images shown are my contribution.

05 DESIGN DEVELOPMENT Initial Design Sketches

The original concept for the structure is reflected in these early development sketches. The proposal develops the initial design to be more functional in terms of assembly/disassembly, weatherproofing, and the user experience. The initial concept desired for the proposal is an open, inviting, and playful structure that visually gives a connection to unity, function, and joy. a. Development Diagrams b.

Floor plans

The ground floor space is designed to be the main exhibition space, with colorful doors that serve as the main entrance, the space is open and adaptable for different types of exhibitions. The first floor space is able to be used as a meeting or gathering space, or additional exhibition space depending on need. a. First Floor Plan b. Ground Floor Plan

The diagram representing the ramp construction provides an understanding of the portability aspect of the proposal, which is fundamental to the use and transportation of the structure. The construction Sequence further demonstrates the full process of assembly/ disassembly.

AZTEC THEATER RENOVATION IN SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

This project was part of the work done in an internship at Overland Partners in San Antonio, Texas. My contribution was to produce all drawings shown here to submit to the Historic Design Review Commission (HDRC) and to the client. The project is designed to accomodate 4 floors of a boutique hotel alongside a rooftop patio expansion in a historic theater in the downtown area. The project has since been approved to begin construction.

06 PLANS

Floor plans

The design looked at how to best open up the location of the theater to the riverwalk area. In addition to the addition of a staircase to the rooftop bar, the walkway across from the building is designed as an additional street level terrace, looking down at the riverwalk. The glass structure on top of the historic building is designed to be a blend of the modern aesthetic the client desired for the hotel, while being respectful to the materials used previously in the existing structure. a.

ACCESSIBLE SUSTAINABILITY IN SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

This project was a design initiative Overland Partners wished to develop to use as part of their working practice. The idea was to develop a series of animations and GIFs to explain simple methods of sustainability used in architectural design. These animations would then be used in client meetings to show the simplicity and attractiveness of building sustainably. The first set of images are from an animation demonstrating the levels of thermal mass in different materials. The second set was an animation showing the process of a heat pump used in a home. a.

INTERDISCIPLINARY DESIGN IN COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

As part of an independant exploration of design in different forms, I have begun to develop a range of clothing pieces, based on the principle that architecture and design can be celebrated in a variety of mediums. These pieces express design principles in functionality, form, and artistic expression that I aim to convey through all of my work. I wish to express with these projects the joy of design, form and a celebration in the way we live and express ourselves to world.
