HOUSE OF THE ANCESTOR La Jolla

This project is located on a cliff in La Jolla overlooking the ocean. The intent is to design a house for an ancestor with an interesting story. I designed this house for my uncle, the astronaut, and my aunt. The primary focus is to design space based on views, public and private spacial differentiation, and buffering noise from the street. The result is glazing, planar structure and separation.

IDEAM CONCERT HALL Little Italy, San Diego

This program for this project involves a concert hall and a music center. The challenge of this design is the fact that the building, which has many sound sensitive spaces, has to contend with the fact that it is location next to the train tracks. Acoustical design as well as voids and solids resulted in this form.

STUDY ABROAD Rome

This project was featured at the Domus Academy exhibition in Milan, Italy. This trip focused on the study of ancient Roman and Baroque Architecture in Italy. My personal research involved analyzing the geometry and patterns found in the Colosseum. I compared that with the design of the Square Colosseum, a fascist architectural building. The comparison resulted in a model that takes certain characteristics from each building and morphes into an intricate, intertwined, geometric pattern based on views through passageways.

CONCERT HALL Belfast, Ireland

In this project, I designed a concert hall on the River Lagan in Northern Ireland. The concept is a shell, like that of a violin, or a ship, that encloses the sound, yet reveals portions of it. The design was inspired by the location, which is near the shipyards, and the music of the Irish culture.
