VORONOI STRUCTURAL SYSTEM The cells are created from a series of randomly generated points that emit a radius within an area. Each cell contains all points that are equidistant from the node. This particular system is made of 4" tube steel ranging in size from 1' to 20'
Every 2 floors the filtration beds occupy the horizontal voronoi cells interacting with the vertical circulation.
Openings are in a direct relationship with the voronoi structural system.
The screen attaches onto the shell, creating a more aesthetically pleasing interior and exterior experience.
The water is passively fltered using landscaped beds
Shapes are created by offsetting and filleting the voronoi cells. Panelized steel system.
VERTICAL CIRCULATION CISTERNS The cisterns contain and cleanse the water collected from the roof, the bridge, the roads and the site. Using mechanical and analog systems the water becomes cleaner as it moves from the outer edges towards the center of the building. Once the water is classi ed as greywater it is released into the nearby landscape and plaza.
VORONOI CISTERN ENCASEMENT Creates a interactive pattern which surrounds the cisterns This pattern incorporates a density gradient to describe the changing water quality in the cisterns

whidbey island visitor center whidbey island, washington fall 2013
a new perspective This project was designed for an intermediate design studio at the University of Oregon. Students were asked to design a Visitors Center for Whidbey Island, Washington located in Ebeyâ€™s Landing National Historical Reserve. The Reserve is a national park that protects and preserves the rich, rural, and cultural history of the island along with its many natural features. The concept for this project, inspired by the varying beauty of the land, was to create a place where visitors could experience the entirety of Whidbey Island from one location inevitably leading them to an enriched personal discovery of the entire island. This concept is achieved through a distorted path that leads visitors up through the structure, exposing them to explicit views. As one begins to ascend, the exterior shell of the building appears to dissolve away, fully exposing an occupant to the open prairie of which the building inhabits. Designed in Grasshopper for Rhino the visitor center creates a new experience for visitors by changing the way they view the land through the bends, twists and flares, which create a frame like structure with partial views of the ever changing landscape. Mostly open to the elements, this environmental sculpture attracts visitors driving through the prairie along HWY 20 through its formal differentiation from the existing built environment.

repurposing the tiber waterfront roma, italy summer 2013
disassembly of the wall
This project was designed for an intermediate design studio which to ok place over a summer in Rome. Students were asked to redesign a section of the Tiber Waterfront. Presently, the Tiber feels very divided from the rest of Rome, a city whose history is so entwined within the river. This is largely due to the Industrial Flo od Walls installed in the 1980's which seperate the river from the city by a vertical distance of 50 feet. no flood
After studying the site I created modules based on group sizing and circulation needs (i.e. transistion) which a cc were then organized into an experience. The concept for this project could simply be called "dissassembly ess of poi nts the wall". As a visitor moves down to the water they discover small enclosures away from the river dramatic cantilevers with views of the river,places to display art, and even places to have lunch. A large waterfall in the center,accessible the sidewalk co ols users on hot summer days and doubles as a movie screen at bike from circulation night. As the site flo ods in the winter people can continue to access the water at it's current height. As the water continues to rise it pushes up some of the platforms creating another path responsive to the season. pedestrian circulation
The site begins to attract people from around the City of Rome, bringing life back to the waterfront

Learning is a process. Co oking is also a process. In both cases progress requires time and effort. This is key to the learning experience. The stacking of key elements, overlapping of similiar functions and exposed central circulation are meant to show the natural progression through the culinary arts.
High amounts of outdo or exposure through views, day lighting and ro of gardens keeps students and faculty members connected to the natural processes involved with growing and preparing fo od.

The division of the facility into 3 main parts is vital to its coherence as a whole. One zone acts as faculty, another as student and the anchor provides amenities for both types of users. Vertical open space surrounded by paths helps provide and maintain this connection between users and the building itself, while also acting as a multipurpose space for the display of fo od, art and other exhibits. Blank walls facing the atrium serve as a canvas to local artists.
of ice s
The design was driven by the desire to incorporate and improve upon person to person interactions primarily through the location of key program requirements and exposed circulation paths while simualtaneously maintaining a distinction between students and faculty.

inspired by local history and the surounding context the screen brings prior building culture into a new light. The shape and layering are representational of brick construction in modern application. It is based on a modular system that reacts to both interior and exterior conditions, becoming larger[smaller] where light is necessary[unnecessary]. It also becomes environmentally responsive by extruding varying distances in order to properally shade the interior space and bring in even amounts of natural light. Using these rules, the screen wraps the building functioning as a fully responsive skin.

whiteakeer branch library eugene, oregon fall 2012
library in the park This project was designed for my third design studio at the University of Oregon. The project was to create a small branch library along the Willamette River in Eugene, Oregon. I sited my building in an open field against a small forest across from a park and near the river. This provided an existing parking lot, proximity to a community hub and access to the river path. The concept revolved around maximizing the sites natural qualities by creating spaces that capture and reflect them in order to create a library accessible to the entire community. The building is divided by a wedge shaped lobby containing an information desk and small magazine reading area facing an eastern garden. The south wing contains a community meeting space accessible during closed hours, offices and other support services. The main reading ro om is anchored on one end with a childrens area and a cafe near the river path on the other. It is angled to provide enjoyable views of the river.
