The seven chakras each address a different part of the body. We used these characteristics to identify seven support spaces from collaborative to individual. Chakras have colors, aromas, yoga poses, and elements associated with them. We incorporated these into the spaces to further assist in the balancing of human energy. Tools Used: Rhino, Vray, Photoshop Page 9


The Pavilion project was the last construction of first year SAID. The purpose of the assignment was to create a space for human interaction that acts as a continuous threshold from one area of the site to another. The final design must act as a public space perfect for sitting and resting.

Individual Process

Black and white studies to analyze the relationship between solid, void, light and rhythm. These studies were used to develop future elevations.

Page 12

Elevations formed from the black and white studies were combined to develop the volumes to the right. Layering the elevations helped to define points of interest and aided to further develop early design thinking.

Individual Iteration 1

Individual Iteration 2

Individual Iteration 3

This project started as an individual design task. The task brought together all of first year design concepts of line, plane, and volume. Class sections voted on a design and then continued to iterate in order to allow continuity with other class section’s designs. The complete structure included seven separate units formed together to allow for walking access through the entire structure. Page 13

L i n e P l a n e Vo l u m e

The final composition designed by my first year section served as the end threshold for the entire pavilion. We experimented with what would be the best way to guide people into the space and decided to build a structure that used angles and rhythm to squeeze and release the user.

Featured in Tiny Living Exhibition at the Niehoff Studio, this project explored the golden ratio and The Modular Man. Youthful actions were brought back through organized proportioning and conducted movement. The design allowed the user to explore the environment through basic acts of childhood. The composition was scaled to my own proportions to create a tiny living space. Page 17

OneSight is a non-profit organization that helps bring vision care to countries in need. My group’s task was to create OneSight’s brand standards and implement them into three locations in Rwanda. Finding Focus cultivates the journey of the patients as they receive the gift of sight. Page 19

Textural Journey

High and low relief materials create a textural map to guide patients through the center. Patients experience high contrast design elements while their vision is blurry. This contrast decreases as the patient continues their journey to clarity. The final dispense area in the center shows clean and crisp design elements to signify clear sight.

Key Elements

The key elements below are essential to the brand standards and are universal across OneSight locations.

Supplemental elements include lighting, wall texture, and flooring. Lighting transitions from indirect to direct, floor tile changes scale throughout the circulation and wall texture moves from high to low relief. These all add to the textural journey that is OneSight. Page 23

Strung Out is a furniture design project inspired by the art of macramĂŠ, crochet, and Danish Weaving. I wanted to explore the possibilities of what the hand and cord can create. Using crochet and joinery techniques, I was able to design and construct a functional piece of furniture without the use of hardware. The design offers numerous opportunities for further exploration through patterning and framing. Page 25

Collective Architecture worked with The Chevy Chase Land Company and their tenants to renovate an existing office building in Chevy Chase, Maryland. I prepared drawings and space plans to fit spaces for future tenants. Tasks Include: • Contracts and proposals • Surveys and input of dimensions into AutoCad • Verification of ADA Bathroom requirements • Tenant programming and space plans • Construction documentation Page 26

All Renderings Completed By Collective Architecture In addition to their first floor retail space, Amalgamated Casualty Insurance requested a tenant fit out for their offices. They took over the majority of the 3rd floor including an additional suite to sublease until further space is needed. The space consisted of exterior executive offices and interior claims offices along with support areas and a large pantry Page 31

ICFF SHOWCASE The mood of the event was intended to feel like a New York City Lounge. Dramatic lighting and bold music videos helped create the atmosphere we were looking for. ICFF emphasized social media during the event so we encouraged guests to share our showcase via their own social platforms.

During my time at FRCH Design Worldwide, my team attended ICFF 2016 in NYC. I was able to be a part of the event planning process to share the experiences and knowledge gained by my team with the entire firm. This included atmosphere, marketing, an installation, coordination and refreshments. By attending the in office event, the staff was able to share the experience of NYC and ICFF in our own firm lobby. Page 33
