Bridging The Gap Studio III- Fall 2016 Bridging the Gap is the proposed design for the Martin Luther King Jr. MARTA Station. The Project Focuses on the circulation issues between the Sweet Auburn District of Atlanta and the nearby Oakland Cemetery and Grant Park areas. Bridging the gap features a pedestrian bridge that permeates through the building. The building program, which includes shops, restaurant, rooftop garden, and the station itself is collected underneath an overarching concrete structure which encourages a pause in movement. The various modes of entrance and circulation within and around the building are suited to the freeform mind of the pedestrian.

Renewing The Sky Studio v- Fall 2017 Renewing the Sky is the proposed design for a new Live-Work community for artists in the Castleberry Hill District of Atlanta. The project focuses on both community aspects of a residential complex as well as daylighting features for a gallery and studio spaces. A longitudinal green space allows for semi-public gathering and recreation whereas rooftop spaces connect the residential units and allow for inter-residential interaction. The South facade of the gallery allows for powerful ambient light that mimics true sunlight, while blocking direct sun. The gallery and other public spaces open to the south of the building onto the Nelson St. Pedestrian bridge, to create a community hub and secondary entrance to Castleberry Hill.
