Nest Architecture Inc. Los Angeles, CA 2017 - 2021 This 11,000 ft2 renovation and addition with such a large scope required splitting up the permitting process and project management. While Principal Architect Kip, Drafter Aria, General Manager Emily, and myself (PM) finalized the CD phase of the main house together, Kip tasked me with project managing the more technical scope of this construction. This included the basement, pool house, all wall tilling patterns, and engineering of the shade structure, wine cellar and terraces. I coordinated and collaborated with many of our steel manufacturers, fabricators, consultants, and Kip. Finally, I collaborated with Emily and our landscape architect, Rob, to produce the gate and landscaping design and documentation.

MIX-USE RESIDENTIAL COMPLEX

C

Nest Architecture Inc. Los Angeles, CA 2019 - 2021 This proposed new mixed-use development with 43 apartments includes 5 low-income units and has 1,887 SF of neighborhoodserving commercial space. I was tasked with training and showing new employee Karan Pashine how to import a Revit BIM model into our ArchiCAD software. Although Principal Architect Kip Kelly, Drafter Karan, and I initiated the SD Phase, Kip and I continued the DD Phase of this project. After the initial training and backand-forth hand-off, I collaborated with Kip to design and develop the lobby, parking lot, exterior facade, rooftop design, and entire vertical elements, along with their corresponding room layouts. Moreover, I coordinated with our landscaping consultant, Rob Steiner, to design and develop the landscaping. I drafted and published the floor plans, elevations, and sections shown here, but some drafting was inherited by Karan.

I drafted, modeled, and rendered the following images using ArchiCAD and Twinmotion. Moreover, with my former education in materials science and engineering, I collaborated with Kip to design a safe and simple layout of the high-heat equipment in order to dissipate heat and minimize thermal risks.

Under the guidance of Kip Kelly, I was responsible for the project management of this lab. Constituting a series of units for an organic compound extraction facility, this lab module required the consolidation of essential casework and specialized lab equipment from many manufacturers and fabricators.

HOME RENOVATION Nest Architecture Inc. Los Angeles, CA 2018 - 2019

A charming singlefamily home with modern expressions—this renovation showcases the open and bold architecture we craft at Nest Architecture, Inc. At all phases of construction, Kip and I developed and designed solutions to bring in more light and open space to this residence. While Kip concentrated on city permits and design input, I drafted, modeled, rendered graphics, and provided design input on architecture and landscaping.

1ST PLACE CHICAGO COMPETITION AECOM Professional Studio CO-OP Internship Chicago, IL Winter 2014 I had the privilege of working alongside Lead Architect Ross Wimer, Principal Peter Zellner, and team members: Daniel Lee, Jae Lee, Frederick Nilson, and classmate Agus Tio. Ross asked the team to help him develop a tower with a Michell truss into an aerodynamic and sculptural skyscraper.

FIG.1 - SITE MODEL

FIG. 6

Agus, Jae, and I worked on making the entire massing site model of the city (Fig.1). I created and developed the 7 physical study models of the main skyscraper (Fig.1 & 4). Ross and I worked on a study model (Fig. 5 & 6) of the building structure adjacent to the tower. I extruded one of the floor plans in Fig. 3, and produced the context & case study diagrams. After both the landscaping and architecture divisions hit a dead end on cost-cutting the plaza landscaping by the second submittal, I suggested to Ross that we match the Michell truss of the tower with the corresponding Clifford torus as the underlying ground pattern for the entire plaza. (Fig. 5). Ultimately, this cost-saving solution gave us the edge to win the commission. Having client George Lucas be one of the 12 judge panelists to select our project winner was truly an honor.
