City of Miami New Development Perspective View


Miami, FL USA

Description and Activities: As a Land Development Technician, I assisted in the design review of new large-scale development proposals within the City of Miami. Our department produced graphic illustrations and written anlalyses of projects applying for development approval, and we met with developers and architects to clarify code requirements and design guidelines. We also produced written material and renderings illustrating developments consistent with good planning principles. There was a large development boom during my tenure at the City, and we were able to enforce positive urban design concepts into many of the large-scale development projects. Principles of New Urbanism were applied, including requiring buildings to line garage and service functions with active habitable space, and create a projectw with appropriate scale and massing for the site.

Conceputal Massing Under Proposed Zoning Code


Miami, FL USA

Description: For this planning exercise, our team conducted an analysis for property owners in the West Brickell neighborhood in downtown Miami to determine the effect of a new city zoning code on their development rights. Through this analysis, we created conceptual development schemes for several sites in the West Brickell area and worked with a team of consultants to review the financial, planning, transportation and legal aspects of the proposed regulatory changes. We presented our findings at a series of public hearings with City Boards which were reviewing the proposed updated zoning ordinance as it went through the adoption process. Activities: I was involved in the analysis of the existing and proposed zoning codes, the generation of graphic models in CAD and Photoshop, creating the presentation materials, and coordinating the consultant team involved in the study.

Putrajaya, Malaysia

Program: Competition entry for an urban university campus on a 6 acre site, to include aproximately 300,000 SF of space for university functions, including classrooms, administrative functions, library, auditorium and student centre, as well as an office building component with an additional 220,000 SF of gross floor area. Design Narrative: Concepts of openness and sustainability drove the design of the project. The academic block massing is broken up to allow natural ventilation and light to permeate through to the interior open atrium, and the large overhanging roof of the central academic block creates a shaded area for student activities as well as protecting the glass facade from solar hear gain. An accsessible green roof serves as an additional amenity and sustainable featue of the proposal. Activities: I was involved in site planning and analysis, floor plan layouts and preparation of presentation materials.

Program: Invited competition for 6 luxury residential towers on a new development site in Dubai. There were two tower types, a 40-floor beach tower and a 44-floor marina tower. Our design was the runner-up entry in the competition. Design Narrative: The project aimed to break up the massing of the towers through the insertion of elements such as frames and screens throughout the towers. These elements also contributed to the sustainable features of the towers, as the screening assisted with shading of the tower glazing, and the frames contained landscaped planters spaced throughout the towers. Green roofs were also proposed at the tops of the towers. Activties: I was involved in the preparation of drawings, floor plans, sheet layouts, graphic exhibits and analysis of the project’s sustainability issues. Beach Tower Typical Plan

Thesis Project, Spring 2003


Rome Semester, Fall 2002: During this semester living and studying in Rome, the focus of the semester was on drawing and learning from the existing historic architectural precedents. The class final project was to recreate a drawing from the artist and architect Giovanni Piranesi, starting with one of his perspectival “vedutas�, but transforming this view into an architectural elevation drawing. My group chose the Piazza Navona view, and created an oblique elevation through sketches, research, photographs and measurements in the piazza.


University of Miami, Florida

Program Description and Activities: I completed my Masters of Architecture degree from Fall 2000 to Spring 2003. The University of Miami Architecture program places a large emphasis on study of historical and traditional architectural typologies, as well as the skill of hand drawing. The school is also a large advocate of contextual urban planning and the New Urbanism movement, and each of our design studios began with an analysis of the existing surrounding context, and our design projects were conceived of in a manner appropriate in scale and architectural design fitting for the site. The program also encouraged architecture studios abroad, and I participated in a semster in Rome, a summer studio in Tokyo, and a class visit to Berlin during an urban housing studio. These travel studios were useful in informing us of best practices of urban design and architecture, and, in addition to creating a fantastic series of drawings, the students gained knowledge and understanding of the overall design and details of important buildings, monuments and public spaces.

Sketches, Rome Semester, Fall 2002

Spring 2001: The focus of this architecture studio was the design of a wood research center and museum in downtown Miami. The three proposed buildings reference historic wood frame structures: a long heavy-timber frame building, reminiscent of New England mill factories, an education building with a long double-height loggia, similar to typologies found in New Orleans and Key West, and a third smaller building, containing offices and restrooms, designed using a vernacular board and baten construction technique.


Japan Studio, Summer 2001: During this summer course, our studio spent 5 weeks in Japan and China, studying Asian culture, art, architecture and city planning. The subject of my documentary drawing was the historic 1935 Asakura Choso House. The house exemplifies many elments of traditional domestic Japanese architecture, such as post-and beam wood-frame construction, sliding doors and windows, integration with nature, and tatame mats covering the floor.
