Lake Park Visitor Center The site for this project was Frederick Law Olmsted’s Lake Park so the last thing I wanted to do was disturb the park or encroach on any views. To avoid any such disturbance the building was built into a bluff facing Lake Michigan which allowed for the building to not only be a Visitor Center, but a means of traversing the hillside. The building is a set of three cascading bars which make up the interior habitable space as well as the exterior path of movement. The direction of the bars takes advantage of the awe inspiring views of Lake Michigan while not blocking said view for the park above.

Downer Avenue Textile Gallery

The design of this in-fill gallery was an early look at the idea of procession through space. I wanted to experiment with the ideas of compression and expansion by moving people around and through masses within the space.


River Park Row Housing

The RIver Park Row Housing was designed as an alternative to poorly designed public housing seen in Milwaukee. The goal was to create afforable housing while maintaining a certain level of quality. The concept uses a simple system of load bearing concrete walls and laminated veneer lumber beams to create a units which are enclosed on the sides, but open on the ends. This allows for better light quality while providing a substantial sound barrier between units. Each unit has a semi private roof space upon which they can both aquire a degree of outdoor privacy while still being able to interact with their neighbors.

Wanderlust: Poetics of Human Movement This project focused on the theory, design, and physical representation of a landform stair. As a group we entertained the idea of humans as the agent of erosion, viewing the form of the stair as a river-carved valley, banked river, or river delta. We related the speed of the water in a river to the movement of humans on the stair. The uneroded peaks of the stairs are segmented by the columns creating the idea of smaller more permanent spaces. The model is cast in concrete by using stacked cardboard molds. We fould that the edge of the corrugation creates and interesting texture and pattern. The columns are rebar rods of varying sizes we cast into the the concrete and the texture is done with leaves and sticks.


MIAD ARThouse Residence Hall

The Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design’s ARThouse Residence Hall was designed for the Spring 2014 comprehensive design studio with Jim Shields. The goal of the studio was to completely design, detail and document a building on a budget as though it were a real project. Although we were not given very much time to delve too deeply into design, I took as much time as could to develope a residence hall which would fullfill MIAD’s objective of creating a “flagship” residence hall comparable to it’s competitiors: MICA, SCAD, CCAD, and SAIC. The deisign itself focuses on the use of wedge-shaped trussed sky-walks between two single loaded bar buildings separated by a linear courtyard. The sky-walks allow students a more dynamic experience of courtyard on several different levels. The wedge shape theme is continued to the ground level where both the courtyard and pier act as negative space wedges.

table SCRAPS table SCRAPS was a small project undertaken by my roommate and I to make use of laser cutter scraps that seemed to pile up after large projects in studio. We created a table which uses the arbitrarily cut pieces to create an interesting spacial condition when viewing the table from above while also being able to act as shelving The supports of the table were cut from larger semi-cut pieces of MDF and the clear top is a piece of quarter inch acrylic. The entire table is supported by gravity and pin connections.
