Landscape

Hotel

This boutique hotel is located at Chile’s Vina del Mar. The main concept of this work is respecting the oceanic seascape, to blend in harmony with the surroundings instead of towering over the beach and casting a large shadow like the other high-rises that line the coast.

Vina del Mar is the center for Latin American music and very popular with young professionals and tourists. For this reason the design is lively, different, and the interiors give the feeling of being “on set� at a concert.

Nested Diagrids

Interior Concept Sketch

The design is created by nested diagrids, creating a layered exterior shell. Earthquakes are a common occurrence in Chile. The diagrids provide a repetitious structure, and the base isolator helps guard the foundation against the sands’ possible liquefaction during a quake.

Fenway Park Hotel This boutique hotel features forty rooms, a greenhouse, and a dinner theatre. The program of this building was designed to make Boston’s Fenway district more than just a place to catch a game, but also a place to be frequented off-season. The split building concept was derived from striving to be a friendly neighbor to the apartments behind the site. Spring ‘10

National School of Drama


This School of Drama is set in New Delhi, India. It wraps around a historically significant Indian palace. My design looks to Indian culture by incorporating color and screening. It also seeks to bring this ancient culture into modern day by looking to the drama of its performing arts and reflecting that into the architecture by allowing the forms to curve and flow. The campus features an Academic Building linked via a skywalk to the Performance Building as well as a Hostel where the students live. Fall ‘10
