microdwelling TASK: Design a dwelling with minimal square footage for a single individual. Minimize area without sacrificing usability. DESIGN: This micro dwelling is 96 square feet, yet maintains an open feel with large windows, a skylight, loft area, and open balcony. The windows provide natural daylight from the North. The structure is complete with a roof garden and a solar panel to lower utility costs. It is designed with flexible furniture including a foldup bed with storage and a retractable dining table. Programs Used: Auto Cad Year: One


abstract cube TASK: Create a composition composed of forms in a 10” x 10” cube. The composition should reflect a chosen word. DESIGN: For my word I chose “tenacious”. Long rectilinear forms are cantilevered from five faces of the cube. These forms are positioned so that they come close to one another, but do not touch. Six small cubes are placed in between chosen rectilinear forms. The cubes are held in place by tension. This creates a sense of tenacity. Year: One


the lost bo bardi TASK: Choose a 20th century architect who has built a significant residential structure. Study his or her works and then design a house in his of her style. The design should be able to pass as that architects actual work. DESIGN: With this project I analyzed Lina Bo Bardi. The home I designed uses Bo Bardi’s techniques of interaction with the landscape and the use of a void. The void in this house is the entire second level. I used the concept of served, and service space which is prominent in Bo Bardi’s work. At the center of the home there is an interior courtyard which is viewable form each level of the home. Programs Used: Revit, Auto Cad Year: Two

LEED project TASK: Work with a partner to perform a detailed LEEDNC analysis and rating on a selected building. The building should meet the requirements of 32 credits and 60 points (silver standard) or more. DESIGN: For this project my partner and I analyzed the historic La Salle hotel in downtown Bryan. I redesigned the hotel into an office complex to meet the new construction requirement. We completed 32 credits for a total of 81 points, achieving the highest rating, LEED Platinum. Programs Used: E-quest, Revit, Adobe Illustrator Year: Two

RATING


fibrous house TASK: This project will operate on the house as a platform for exploring the generation of fibrous assemblages through high population agent-based methodologies. DESIGN: The fibrous house is a structure made up of strand based geometries. It is composed of an exoskeleton of matted strands, and an interior plush surface known as the sock. The structure was created from distributed agents with turbulent behaviors which generated the form and spaces. MY ROLE: I worked on numerous areas of the project including agent iterations, determining program, landscape studies, and form studies in Maya. I created the final floor plans and sections, shown here. Programs Used: Processing, Maya, Illustrator, Rhino Year: Two

affordable house TASK: A prominent issue with affordable housing is that aesthetic quality is compromised for cost. Create a 1500 sq. ft. or less dwelling that is both affordable and aesthetically pleasing. DESIGN: I focused on affordablity through material and construction cost, energy savings, and durability. I focused on the aesthetics through quality of space, light, and materials. This 1267 sq.ft. home incorporates an open floor plan to eliminate wasted space. An atrium in the back allows for exhaust from appliances to exit directly outdoors, which lowers the energy costs and also allows for natural ventilation. Low E windows and a skylight illuminate the space with natural daylight. Materials such as stucco, and stained concrete flooring provide beauty, and durability at a low cost. Programs Used: Revit, Vasari Year: Two


fabrication


aluminum installation TASK: With a group of eight, design a functional structure using ten 4’ by 8’ sheets of aluminum to be placed in the Langford courtyard. DESIGN: For this project my team designed a system of lounge chairs for relaxation and study. The system consists of nine “pods”, each consisting of two interlocking chairs. The design utilized the aluminum by using only one sheet of aluminum per chair. MY ROLE: I served as the Project Architect. As well as directing the members of the group I contributed to the overall design of the chair system and I created the shop drawings. I researched methods to bend aluminum and designed the system of perforated holes and etchings to allow the chairs to bend in the desired form. Programs Used: Auto Cad, CNC Router Year: Two

dinosaur TASK: Choose a small model of an animal to duplicate at a larger sale. Draw and scale the pieces in Auto Cad to create a model from a 4’ x 8’ sheet of mdf board. Modify the pieces to support the larger weight. Use the CNC router to cut the parts and then assemble the structure. Complete this process in one week. DESIGN: This project was a simple exercise in fabrication and natural joints. I enlarged the feet pieces to create a larger base to support the weight. No glue, nails, or fasteners where used. The dinosaur can easily be disassembled and reassembled. Programs Used: Auto Cad, CNC Router Year: Two


cnc router layout


book case TASK: Create a high-end piece of furniture using a 4’ x 8’ sheet of plywood. Utilize friction and natural connections. No screws, or nails are allowed. The piece should be able to be taken apart and shipped in a suitcase. DESIGN: This book case is assembled by a system of grooves and notches. A pole created from stacked 3/4” thick plywood squares creates a unique texture which provides depth and a break from the flat surfaces. Large books are stored in the top square, while smaller books can be placed on the bottom shelf. Programs Used: Auto Cad, CNC Router Year: One
