Mixed-Use Design Rivalry in Denver Texas Tech University, Collaboration ID 4606, Fall 2013

For this project, I worked with a group of 2 Architecture students, 3 Landscape Architecture students, and 1 other Interior Design student . We were given a choice of 3 sites in Denver, Colorado. The site we chose was located next to the Platte River. Our concept was based on “Rivalry� between the pastoral landscape and the built cityscape.

Facility Design TTU Parking Facility Texas Tech University, Revit ID 4383, Fall 2012

For this project, we were asked to redesign the Texas Tech University Parking Services Facility. The goal was to create a more efficient floor plan, as the current use of space is very ineffiecient. Also, the project needed to reflect the Texas Tech University standards.The purpose of this class was to learn Revit throughout the completion of this project.

Corporate Design Law Firm Project Texas Tech University, Interiors III ID 2383, Fall 2011

For this project, we were instructed to design a law office. The purpose of the project was to learn how to hand draw one and two point perspectives. My inspiration for this project was a traditional judge’s gavel. This is seen through the dark wood and metal accents. Another unique aspect to this project was that all of the artwork was to be photos of historic courthouses in Texas.

Educational Design

TTU Department of Design Texas Tech University, Advanced Process ID 3385, Spring 2013 This project was completed in response to the Texas Tech University Department of Design’s need to redesign their current spaces. This included offices, studios, and a public lounge area. The design needed to stand the test of time but still uphold the standards of Texas Tech University.

CONCEPT:

TOP RIGHT: Floor plan for El Centro, a public student lounge area, and a large classroom, drawn in Revit. BOTTOM RIGHT: Concept statement. ABOVE: Perspective of the lobby, drawn in Revit and handrendered.

The Department of Design will be comparable to a Canon LaserJet printer clean and simple on the outside, versatile on the inside, and will not break the bank.

This chair design was completed in order to study how the design of a structure plays a part in how loads are transferred through a built object. The process consisted of sketching, making small-scale models, completing a series of drawings, and building a chair full-scale. My design consisted of multiple wood cut-outs that were cut out on a CNC machine. They were then combined with a metal rod and bolted PRODUCED together.BY AN AUTODESK STUDENTPRODUCED PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK STUDENT PRODUCT PRODUCT BY AN AUTODESK STUDENT PRODUCT
