You cannot simply put something new into a place. You have to absorb what you see around you, what exists on the land, and then use that knowledge along with contemporary thinking to interpret what you see. -Tadao Ando

You are an explorer. Your mission is to document and observe the world around you as if you’ve never seen it before. Take notes. Collect things you find on your travels. Document your findings. Notice patterns. Copy. Trace. Focus on one thing at a time. Record what you are drawn to. -Unknown 1

Funerary Chapel

Alexandria, Virginia

Spring 2012 Located in Old Town Alexandria, this empty lot at the corner of Prince Street and Daingerfield Road was practically begging to be filled. The nearby emerging stream and cemetery became connected to the metro and King Street with this intermediary chapel of the “lost and found.� 3

Hopewell Furnace Museum Elverson, Pennsylvania

Fall 2011 As part of a competition with the National Park Service, the project required extensive site research in groups followed by a four week independent site intervention. I chose to focus on the existing vistors’ center and transform it into an interactive learning environment. 7

Mixed-Use Housing Complex Greenville, South Carolina

Spring 2011 With a team consisting of two senior students, two local architects, and one contractor, the design process for this mixed-use housing complex was both practical and thoughtful. The structure was required to contain apartments, commercial and retail space, a fitness facility, garage parking, and a nondenominational chapel. 11

Folk Art Museum

Greenville, South Carolina

Fall 2010 This project was structured as a two week long charette with the main focus being the model. The design was created entirely in model form and drawings were derived from that. Intensive studies on the surrounding area, circulation, and light and wind patterns were performed. 15

University Greek Village Clemson, South Carolina

Fall 2010 Designed in conjunction with Clemson University’s Greek Life administration, this master plan provided on-campus housing for fraternity and sorority members. A multipurpose community center became the focus of the project and provided various meeting spaces, outdoor gathering areas, and a kitchen. Campus location and circulation, needs of current groups, and environmental factors all played a large role in the overall design. 17

Residential Piazza Genoa, Italy

Spring 2010 Studying abroad in Genoa, Italy required me to look at the architectural world and process in a different way. Our group of three undergraduate students faced the challenge of designing a mid-rise residential structure in a dim and narrow historic piazza. The solution addresses the issues light and air in the site while creating a dynamic ground level for pedestrians. 21
