Intersecting Monte Carlo spa and restaurant Monte Carlo, Monaco

Spring 2012 Professors: Heather Woofter & Igor Marjanovic Washington University

Situated in Monte Carlo, Monaco, the building serves as an insertion between the city and the sea. Each chamber acts like a prism, seperating the two sides with an expanse of silence so that each can be appreciated fully. While the spa occupies a fixed portion on the ocean side, the city programming (stores / restaurants) can expand and contract into the interior depending on need and time of day.


Public Area: permits ocean sound penetration

Entrance Area: permits ocean sound penetration

Spa: View to City, minimal sound penetration

Enhanced Porosity Concrete

Exterior Surfacing: water management

Tacking Solar Gain 250 research labs Boston, MA

Fall 2013 Professor: Jeffry Burchard Harvard University

This project results from the intersection of competing interests between the need for direct and indirect sunlight, hot and cold research laboratories, and various levels of private access based on laboratory type. Shifts that occur both in plan and section in response to gaining or preventing solar access provide the means by which circulation is organized throughout the building. Subtle floor changes allow the labs and common areas to appear visually connected while remaining organizationally separate.

migratory bird habitat St. Louis, MO

Fall 2012 Professor: Gia Daskalakis Washington University

Circulation serves as a constant in a system of fluctuating water and bird levels, allowing for a dynamic relationship between people, birds, and the Mississippi River while serving as an alternative to the existing flood wall. Water defines habitat. Habitat determines birds. Birds encourage visitation. Circulation guides water.

Conveying Waste arts district, innovation hub, and waste processing facility Santa Monica, CA

Spring 2013 Professors: Heather Woofter & Christof Jantzen Washington University

Located next to a burgeoning arts district and the newly proposed metro train station, the Santa Monica City Yards is a currently underutilized storage site in a vibrant cultural, technological, and sustainability oriented region. Three elements currently move through the Santa Monica City Yards on a daily basis: people, trucks, and trash. This project channels and filters the constant stream so that fluctuations within it can be exposed in a constantly changing landscape. As different materials pass through at different rates, they accumulate in varying amounts, thus conveying a story about the materials that provide for our society.

Bike Lane Pavilion sustainability fair on Delmar Blvd. St. Louis, MO

Fall 2009 Professor: Carl Karlen Washington University

A bicycle path is lifted into a small seating area and ampitheatre where guests can learn about bicycle safety while also being made aware of bike paths themselves.


Schooling Kites research, analysis, and development of a kite

Spring 2012 Professor: Sung Ho Kim Instructor: Elisa Kim Washington University

This project focussed on the development of a kite. Each individual sail is related to its neighboring sail in a system that directs the unit either towards or away from itself based on proximity. This allows for a complex but controlled network of movement similar to schooling fish.


Schooling fish follow two rules: 1. Stay close to your neighbor 2. Don’t run into your neighbor FLUID DYNAMICS
