EFFERVESCE considers how design can reflect on

the tragic event of the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting to at once celebrate the memory of the lives lost and create new connections between those who engage this pop-up architecture. Appearing as a filigreed and dematerializing wall, it inhabits middle of site allowing viewers to circumnavigate the structure. The convex shape of each wall surface subtly captures space without occupying it, while the curvature establishes a focal zone within the field. Within this zone are 49 vessels suspended in the porous structure, 1 for each life lost during the shooting. Upon closer inspection, one discovers that these objects are in fact mechanisms: a plunger, siphon and wand, modeled on a simple toy bubble gun. The supple design encourages one to squeeze the plunger, drawing liquid in to wand, and on release, opening the wand to reveal a soap bubble. Each bubble blown is a fleeting yet vivid reminder of a life lost, and perhaps, a moment of joy.

UNIVERSAL COMMUNION is a study of human interaction with architecture and sacred spaces. The interplay of elevated surfaces which lead to lookouts of the lake, with the courtyard in the center of the three buildings allows for different interactions through the site.

Placed on the shore of Lake Michigan in South Chicago, the program for the site includes a bike expo and shop, a chapel, and a small flower kiosk. Each of the programmatic elements were created with the interaction and speed of each. The bike expo, inspired by the speed of bike, is elongated and pulled apart to allow for flow between the buildings. The flower shop, inspired by the joy of “stopping to smell the roses�, contributes to the courtyard between the buildings, allowing for pedestrians to sit on the stairs that create the building.

Inspired by Baudelaire’s poem “Crowds” and the city of Chicago, UNIVERSAL COMMUNION is a study of human interaction with architecture. The diagrammatic perspective above explore the individual within the crowd by exploring the wants and needs of the people throughout the space

The PAVILION OF WANDERING NOTT considered what the experience of being lost in a forest would be like. The exploration of being lost while on a straight path occurs for the visitors of the site. The parti was derived from the anatomy of a tree cell and the relationship between cell and vessel.

PAPER GARDENS is a ferry terminal based in Seattle, Washington. Three gardens break up the site, allowing access to the water front of the bay and providing food for residents of the city. The project is an exploration of a grid disrupted through small bouts of chaos caused by visitors to the site. Artwork inspired by Paper Girls by Image Comics
