THE ENERGY EXPLORATORIUM Energy Corridor, Houston, TX 2014

The rift between industr y and nature has been growing since the inception of the Industrial Revolution, especially evident in the fuel energy industr y. Researchers and professionals alike have been tr ying to figure out how to mend the rift between both worlds. The Houston Energy Corridor is seeking to expand its campus to add an energy education center that will explore ways in which the community and industrial companies can unite to figure out new energy solutions that are more environment friendly. This project aims to personify this concept into the form. The building is presented as two masses that represent the industrial and natural world respectively, separated by a transparent rift. The angled structure in the rift symbolizes the future solutions that the community and industr y will have for greater sustainability.

A MEDITATION CENTER Navasota, TX 2015

“The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms.” - Thich Nhat Hanh The pursuit of meditation is to eliminate the complications of ever yday life. By creating a rift in the ear th, visitors are “removed” from the natural environment surrounding them and are set on a path to mindful meditation. The design simulates a canyon that expands during moments of medi tation to free one’s mind from the distractions of the world and compresses on the journey to these moments. Impressions of tranquility and serenity were envisioned for this space to allow the visitors to truly escape from the demands of the world and focus purely on meditation and mindfulness.

COOG’S HOUSE

Fifth Ward, Houston, TX 2015 Habitat for Humanity is an organization that builds homes for families in need. They requested for the designs to be modern and gave us a budget of $100,000. The design of the house reflects the impor tant aspects of family where two separate private and public bars are joined by a cross-axial “food bar.” Whether family members want to be alone in their rooms or want to spend time together in the living room, they will always have to cross the kitchen and dining room to get to either locations. Passing through the “food bar ” will act as a constant reminder for families to eat meals together to strengthen the relationships within the household. Won 2016 AI A Design Award.

BUFFALO BAYOU EDUCATION CENTER Houston, TX 2015

Buffalo Bayou Park is a prime example of the merging of the natural landscape with the built urban environment. This idea is the fundamental basis for my design concept. The program is divided into three bars: introductor y program, primar y program, and private program. The three â&#x20AC;&#x153;barsâ&#x20AC;? are tied together with a continuous wrap of of the exterior facade. There are two materials that distinctively depict the urban world and the natural world harmoniously wrap the entire facade reiterates the idea of the merging of both worlds. The form of the project shows this idea of merging continuity, but it also breaks apar t the program functions in order to create more event spaces in between them. This highlights the idea of bringing the outside, in. By breaking up the program, each building has multiple surrounding exterior gathering spaces or cour tyards that visually connect all of the spaces.

YANGON NATATORIUM + BATHHOUSE Yangon, Myanmar 2016

Only 65% of Yangon has access to clean water. This project takes advantage of its site at the downtown/river edge and climate to present a public face to accessibility of water with the public bath and natatorium. A single roof as a pure square, visible to the Strand, frames water volumes and contains water filtration from the air and river edge. The architectural sequence also highlights the combination of public space and technology as the users and visitors move from entr y, changing rooms, swimming and bathing on display to the Yangon River.
