Why Architecture

Work Experience

Prodigy Construction, George Farwell. Pullman, WA. Remodeling construction (Framing to drywall and paint) Summer 2013

I have always been a firm believer that one should not learn only one thing really well, but should expand their learning and knowledge into as many finger points as possible. For that reason architecture makes sense. Architecture isn’t just drawing, but it is history, art, human interactions, problem solving, and it is constantly changing.


K-5 Elementary School Design | Third year Exploration

The idea of designing an elementary school started with the classroom as a key component. The classroom was thought of as a home where students would feel comfortable and free while still in a conductive learning environment. A child might not have that same luxury at home, but it could be provided in a school such as this, a school that was both meaningful and lasting. With this importance of the classroom, the remainder of the school was then broken down into distinct program areas, zoning out an overall form of a school that looked back to the ideas that had been set in the classroom.

Culmination of Parts to Make a Whole | Third year Exploration The aim of the global population created an elegant column structure that was hollow and could be simply supported with thin strips in the fabrication process. In the end the initial aim was still achieved, as structural rigidity of the component was achieved, allowing the component to be structural, and not just an “architecture instillation� with no structural aspect.

Reflective Expressions | Second Year Exploration

An experiment with the elements of reflections as an architectural installation. The uses of two mirrors in an offset cube are used to create a radiating reflection to open up a space.


Breaking away from the “Cube� that surrounds the built environment; with the use of a series of planer elements discovering how one can view a landscape based upon changing elevations and series of lifted floor plates.
