I am a motivated undergrad architect with a heightened focus on contributing to the development of more sustainable environments. I believe in maintaining a keen sense of awareness based off of issues and developments that take place globally and domestically in architecture. Everyday, I pose the question as I move through life, how does life appear within this realm of sustainability and how can I do my part to help further the progress? Architecture effects all life and It is remarkably fascinating to me. It not only engages me creatively within the aspects of design, but it calls into question a traditional measure of what it truly means to be a designer that is defined by ones tool as a critical thinker. A part of utilizing my critical thinking skills is knowing myself along with my design priorities. Functioning in the real world, I want to be a part of the leaders solving problems in the world through architecture.

01_SHAPES CARVING SHAPES BOOLEAN OPERATIONS

Wireframes used in the process of boolean operations in which shapes are physically carving voids from all six sides of each configuration


Wireframe Concept 1

Wireframe Concept 2

Wireframe Concept 3

In a Boolean operation, two or more shapes intersect creating subtracted spaces and new spaces, which respectively is known as the boolean difference and boolean addition. Each shape, as depicted in the wireframe models, can carve out other shapes. This then causes irregular voids and configurations within the wireframe. From here, I chose the third wireframe to start a second model to further my idea. Thinking conceptually about how the model would appear I incrementally changed the position of the wireframe by means of an analog drawing. Advancing to a computer render aided in constructing the physical model for the final composition. Hand experiential rendering

02_FLAT TO FORM

PAPER FOLDING

Project consist of folding in the form with a diagramed crease pattered template which is then folded utilizing different folding methods.


Folded plate study iterations

Folded column study iterations

The project consist of creating a folded plate, a folded column, and a curved crease based off of the crease pattern desingned. By pulling the edges along the folds, the paper begins to hold the patterns and transpires into a configured form. Through an iterative process, the platelet resembles a half folded column with three main incremental bodies displaying a series of triangular peaked mountain and valley folds. The column is more architectural in a sense, evolving through each iteration depicted left.

03_FUSE RULED SURFACE Project consisting of an analog design thinking in terms of a ruled surface + a physical adaptation viewed as a vessel of thinking


Analog drawing

The drawing encapsulates specific moments in which the end points kiss or appear to connect. When entering the model stage of ruled surfaces, I veered off of a symmetrical grid system to begin the model making process blind not knowing where the model would start or end. Hence several pasta models were created in process to analyze the direction the final model was to go in. The end result was two similar halves slightly modified to yield a fused center point where the two halves of the model were amalgamated. 16

04_OUTLOOK

Taking information learned in the previous project of working in a ruled system, the project thus advances, translating into a functioning space that would serve as an outlook.

WHERE SKY MEETS EARTH


Model perspectives, section design, elevation

Starting from Fuse, I utilized that project going forward as my primary vessel for thinking. The process consisted of an iterative design process which then yielded a final model consisting of two entrances, an east view, a look out on the second level with a glass floor, a central gathering and meeting space, two private intimate areas, and one uncovered outdooor enclosure with glass walkways. Shown in correlation are the floor plan, roof plan, east elevation, and sectional analysis. 20

05_CHARLOTTE MUSEUM OF ART CHARLOTTE, NC 221 E 3RD STREET

Design is about identifying opportunities through variations. Over time an idea translates into architectural consequences and we must then begin understanding a sense of place, in a place that is now very real.


Site analysis

Proposed site

Site map

Cities are complex systems and places to understand filled with polyvalent layers and dimensions that have to be extracted in order to understand. Communicated by means of a thorough analysis of the site, design experimentation thus commences with massings formed to mimic potential ocupiable public space, all governed by an analysis conduced across city vantage points carving the site thus creating boundaries and edge conditions. Upon exiting the development phase of gradually adding parameters and constraints, a working public art museum has now come to furition which is sensitive to its site after a series of studies and evaluation.

In this project, the purpose was to design a new cantina on a vacant site along via Ricci XX, in Montepulciano Italy. The previous house was destroyed by an earthquake in the 1800’s, thus the vacancy of the site sits within the second oldest walls of this historic Italian hill town. Families and merchants share the space of the confined streets and intermingle in a mixed use setting of dwelling and exchange. The cantina is in this urban / domestic city fabric where cross cultural encounters occur daily.
