Marked Tree WINERY Professor: Alice Guess Winter/Spring 2017 Objective: Winery Site: Flat Rock, North Carolina. U.S.A Software: Rhino Illustrator Photoshop 3D Studio Max Revit Terrior in wine making is a conceptual model expressing a grape vines environment in a specific area. Terrior is made up of parts; from the substructure, organisms and subsoil’s that weave together to create a terrain that creates a whole & uniform form as well as being unique to its place. The building weaves together form, landscape, and program to creating an overlapping concept to create immersive spaces. The program and design of the building use the concept of weaving, the form takes the tangling & uneven height’s of the grape vines as well as the building form penetrating the building into the landscape to create areas where the landscape can access the building.

Interior Design Element Japan is slowly diminishing its rich culture and tradition in Tokyo by creating mundane apartment towers and creating a concrete juncle that is no longer relatable to its context. Its becoming a modernized city that has been innovating its technological ground; competing as one of the strongest entities in today’s world. Our objective was to create a custom material that went with the location and program type. I chose this material to be in an office lobby to show that even though Tokyo does not exemplify Japanese traditions, they are deeply rooted in this culture. The panel is a distorted version of the traditional Japanese bamboo weave pattern. It is supposed to convey the progressivness of Tokyo & its people.

Comme des Garcons BOUTIQUE & SHOWROOM Professor: Jean Jaminet Spring 2015 Objective: Going against the architectural discourse. Site: Ayoama; Fashion District: Tokyo, Japan Software: Rhino Illustrator Photoshop Keyshot This project analyzes an architectural space and concept through the protruded and recessed pieces that created a part-to-whole massing. Individual pieces were put together, varying by length, portraying the conception of depth. While the ground condition mimics and addresses the language of the city Tokyo. By creating varying and staggering lengths this automatically combines shadow deceptions. And by inter-penetrating different shapes and planes in particular extrusions elevates the concept of depth. This concept tests architecture’s traditional conception of massing that creates a figure that stands against the cities architectural facades.

Womans Refuge HOMELESS SHELTER Professor: Daniel Brown Fall 2016 Objective: Subsidized Housing Site: Jacksonville, Florida. U.S.A Software: Rhino Illustrator Photoshop 3D Studio Max Revit This homeless shelter houses youth and woman who are victims of homelessness as well as prostitution and sex trafficking. Some young woman who are homeless are vulnerable to many situations and are lured into this circumstance because they lack the resources they need to succeed. One of the main causes of youth homelessness is due to the physical & sexual abuse from their parents. Without the support from the safe haven we call home, it is hard for some individuals to see their potential and worth in this world. This project is meant to create a shelter for young woman to understand their worth as human beings and to jump start their life again.

This homeless shelter is broken up into two different parts that are only accessible to the private as well as the public. The public spaces are the first three floors which include the clinic, cafe, education center, therapy sessions and day care. The rest of the floors on top of that are residential homes for the woman staying at the shelter, their cafeteria, laundry room and recreational room. I broke up the spaces in a way that all woman can interact. Private

I wanted the residential floors to house different types of families and woman so they would be able to interact and learn from each others backgrounds and stores. This image shows a perspective rendering of the building from a bird eye point of view. In this angle you are able to see the different skin conditions that wrap around the building. The perferrated metal panel openings are more dense towards the entrance than they are anywhere else. It is supposed to gravitate you towards that area because there are multiple entrances to this facility. There are also vertival louvers on part of the residential tower to symbolize a presence to these woman. Studio. IV

Fashion Show Design

Centralized Crystalized FASHION SHOW Freelance Winter 2016 Objective: Innovative Fashion Scheme Site: N/A Software: Rhino Illustrator Photoshop 3D Studio Max As a production designer I am interested in creating theatrical fashion shows. These shows now-a-days are more of a performance than just showcasing the designers work. How can you create an environment that enhances the audiences experience through lighting and scenery? By looking at previous fashion show sets, most were designed in a linear or traditional stage-like way. I have never seen a show where the audience was encapsulated by the set and have the models circulate around the audience whereas the audience is surrouding the stage. By creating this scheme, the audience is literally inside the glowing crystalized experience.

Slave Music NARRITORIUM Professor: Scott Singeisen Fall 2015 Objective: Concept Oriented Design Site: Savannah, Georgia. U.S.A Software: Rhino Illustrator Photoshop 3D Studio Max

This structure guides you through multiple spaces that narrates slave life through music; from their oppression guiding you towards their symbol of freedom. There are attributes that the site acquires that symbolized slavery in Savannah: the Barracoons were used to temporarily hold slaves as they were traded from inter-colonial slave businesses in South Carolina. As well as Bay Lane being the hub of all slave trading in Savannah. This area was the epitome of slave interaction that developed an idiosyncratic culture, which produced musical notation that is unique and holds a deeper meaning of what music could inspire to become.

This floor is the second interactive space that leads you into the horrors of rebellion slave life. Each extrusion lines up with the stairs & landing which project video clips of slaves before, during or after the affecs of a rebellion. This space is not only an auditory but visual space that takes you through a chaotic journey that African American slaves had to go through to reach freedom. The concept was to create a chaotic space that took the user on a journey that resembled the unstable and riotous life of slavery. The staircase is laid up in a way that goes with the unstable and undulating extrusions as well as the floor of the form. And the extrusions represent the musical notation of what slave music could become.

Experimental Photographs Throughout

Emotional PHOTOGRAPHY Freelance Throughout the years Objective: Conceptual & Travel Site: N/A Software: Canon T2i Film Photoshop Lightroom This photograph symbolize a deeper meaning of the thoughts that go inside my head or depict a place of wonder and awe. The picture symbolizes the nature of what self psychological harm can do to you. We are our worst enemies and over thinking can destroy us and take us into a dark hole where we can never get out. The girl in the photograph is contemplating in wonder, trying to escape the nostalgia & illusions she is perceiving to be cut throat and real. Throughout all these projects I tried to capture something that was unique to its context. Through photographs we can convey how powerful emotions are over shadowed in our society.

The immersion Hong Kong trip I took during winter break was absoluately phenominal. I would like to say that even though I have not traveled to numerous countries; I have made at least 8 trips to India and traveling around the country and seeing their vast traditional culture. Going to Hong Kong truely opened my eyes to the job market outside of the United States and the endless possibilities there could be in Asia, Europe or any other continent. Hong Kong reminded me of New York City, from the bustleing cars and people going here and there to the massive skyscrapers that unknowlingly tower over you. What I thought was unique about Hong Kong is the way the buuildings address the human scale. In a lot of the buildings, the first couple floors portrude forward while the rest of the building/floors portrude inward making you feel like the building is a lot smaller than it actually is. Lowering down the scale could help in making a large city like Hong Kong seem less intimidating if you are that person who does not like big cities. Other than that area there are places that are trely smaller in scale. You get the best of both worlds when youre in HK.

The two photographs on the right hand side of this page are from two different fishing villages we visited on our immersion Hong Kong trip. These visits show you the reality of these fishermen, from their architecture, ‘way of living,’ environment and work ethic. What intrigued me were the homes that were sitting on top of thin columns, arranged in a wavering motion waiting to be tipped over. Those homes may have structural issues but they serve the purpose in a peculiar yet intriguing way. Photography

India has had a long history of imperialism throughout its timeline. In Mumbai, India you can capture a glimpse of Victorian Gothic revival architecture from a distance. This building is one of the most busiest train stations in the nation, which flocks thousands or even millions of people each day/week. This photograph describes the fast pace and busy life that surrounds this area. The three photographs that have the same editing style are supposed to show different aspects of the city. From the bustling streets of mass transportation, to the romantic ease of the queens necklace water front and to a quick glance of a more residential area from the flyover highway. Even when you are in the comforts of your home there is still a circus and full of life outside your door. Mumbai, India brings in the glamour you do not see much of on the streets of India. There is a different type of energy that roam these streets

I dont think there is another country that is as deeply rooted in their culture as india is in theres. This may seem to be a good or bad thing depending on how you see the situation. Whenever I go to India there is always something new to see. You are never going to go there without seeing an ancient relic or temple or just the way people are dressing and their way to day business. The black and white film shown below is a photograph of a Jain temple we visited in Jaisalmer, India. Where ever you go there is a different religious sanctuary for all the religious faiths in India. There are probably thousands of hindu temples in the city my family is from but there is always a glimpse of another religion peeking through the dense streets and population of this country. One temple that stood out to the most to me was the Sikh Temple in Amritsar, India (Picture of temple is the first photograph in the bottom right corner on page 52). The people there were extremely thourhgful, kind and accepting. The gates that encapsulated the grounds symbolized the different major faiths in India. They accepted anyone from any faith to seek help and shelter if needed at their sanctuary. It was a place for everyone to feel at peace, and in loving each other.
