connecting the community to the city of rome University of Colorado Boulder Summer Abroad: Rome 2019 In order to design for the future, we must use the past to inform present design and re-activate programs through re-establishing connectivity. This project is heavily researched based resulting in a building that connects people to a European tradition of the a market that takes place on the street below. Along with re-connecting people to the Tiber River which has a rich history and is what originally brought life to ancient Rome.

Building function Viewing


by designing a building with height, it allows for views of the city. The rooftop bar and decks allows for people to obtain visual connections with the city below them while the market connects people physically and dining connects people culturally





Building form The form took inspiration from an old building at the site. the Layered bindings that connect this building inspired a split level and stacked building that connects people to different parts of the city. For example the bar connects people to the broader city through it’s views

University of Colorado Boulder Architecture studio: fall 2019 This design is based on existing factors at the site and is meant to highlight and enhance those. The views of the mountains are emphasized without interrupting neighborhood views. The existing topography drives the design by creating two levels that are accessible by the both ground floors.

Building detail this building allows for pedestrian access along broadway (to the west), as well as the park path that follows the river, and finally residents from the Northern side of the site. It pushes more private programs to the back while keeping open public spaces towards the front.

Escape from Pollution University of Colorado Boulder Rhino Fall 2018 Olivia Kleespies - Concept, renderings Daisy wicks - Concept, Form design, Renderings Located in San Francisco Crystal Clear is a futuristic Design Proposed to filter pollution and smoke contaminated air; providing a refuge that purifies and restores Air Quality. The Structure of this Pod is based off the form and symbolism of a crystal. Crystals signifiy as universal healers to provide balance and harmony. Their unique shape represents the internal symmetry of transmitting, reflecting, and storing light and energy.

peaking Interest University of Colorado Boulder Architecture Studio : fall 2017 This bridge is designed to allow the flow of traffic, while also calling users to the point of the bridge to enjoy the view of Boulder’s Infamous flatirons. The primary structure is disconnected from the bridge path to create a floating illusion done by the secondary structures.


Turning point


The tip of the bridge allows for a small gathering point with a view

A second gathering point is located beneath the structural support to create an interaction

the Bridge connects a pedestrian walking path to the East Cu campus .




ceramics Ceramics is like architecture in the sense that it is an artistic experession through form. however, it is more free flowing while architecture tends to be more structured
