Whetstone High School ABOUT ME I am an undergraduate senior in the Architecture program at The Ohio State University. Throughout my education, I have learned one valuable lesson: if there are going to be changes, be the one making the changes rather than just being affected by them. To be the one responsible for change takes hard work and dedication. I exhibit this in both my academics and personal like. It isn’t always easy, if it were it wouldn’t be called work. Everything I work on I give my best effort because my work is a reflection of me.

Project: U.S EMBASSY IN MEXICO CITY Year: FALL 2017 Instructor: JUSTIN DILES ABOUT THE PROJECT Presented to our class for the first time was a competition style project for a new U.S embassy in Mexico City. A dense program connecting two cultures, located on a busy boulevard offering endless possibilities. We researched embassy precendents and office typoligies to learn the functions embassies serve, and how we could best facilitate their needs. All while bearing in mind the turmoil within these two nations. This is more than a building, this is a bridge to form a connection.
WHAT I LEARNED I approached this project with a focus on the word â€œconnectionâ€?. What can a connection do and how they are formed? With my background in woodworking I know how to use a bowtie wood joint. Mainly it is used to solidify two peices together to become a single unit. I used the form and idea of a bow tie to connect spaces together, primarily as vectors of circulation. Its form gave me interesting spacial qualities and dynamic forms to create voids that would later become atriums. I learned how to take my current knowledge of wood joining to incorporate it within a new project to allow an understanding of how to start conceptualizing form and purpose.

The idea for this model was to see, as an occupant would, what the space would feel like from different perspectives. Made of 1/8â€? acrylic totalling 24 individual panels, at seven inches tall, etched with a laser engraver then hand drawn with black acyrlic paint.
Project: DOUBLE HOUSE Year: FALL 2015 Instructor: ZACK SNYDER ABOUT THE PROJECT The Double House is located in a dense neighborhood with a plot size of 25’ X 120’. On the corner of a busy intersection, with other businesses, and shops directly across the street from a park. Given the size and location, the need for natural light to enter both units was a critical part in my design. Therefore, I split the units apart and gave them both their own unique light well to circulate the light to the core of the dwelling. Lifting both units off the ground allowed me to create both a carport as well as a semi-private covered lounge for the owners and guests. Both have balconies and rooftop access, which allows for more occupancy space with a view to the park for events.
WHAT I LEARNED This was my first “official” project in my undergraduate career, being that there was a program to keep in mind as well as a square footage to consider. This was my first experience with 3D modelling software, as well as with the Adobe suite of creative tools. Despite that, I believe I produced a project that well presented my vision for conceptualiznig space and accounting for the need of natural light.
INTERIOR ONE The interior spaces of these dwellings are designed to mimic the surrounding buildings (ie. brick) as well as bring a more natural sense through the wood paneling.
INTERIOR TWO The light wells are used to circulate the sunlight through the dwelling to allow for maximum exposure.
This entire model was constructed by hand from chip board using custom-printed templates. Our primary goal with this model was to represent how the interior would look
through the large windows, and to show how the light would circulate from the light wells in each dwelling
Project: JESSE OWENS MEMORIAL/RECREATIONAL FACILITY Year: SPRING 2016 Instructor: STEPHEN TURK ABOUT THE PROJECT The Jesse Ownes Recreational Center is a facility on Lane Ave, one of the major strips on the OSU campus. This project was to renovate the building and bring it up to the state-of-the-art. Jesse Owensâ€™ legacy was an inspiration, therefore I wanted to take that inspiration and use it to push my design, to help form the volumes and have it stand out from the surrounding buildings.
WHAT I LEARNED Before this project, I didnâ€™t fully understand how to connect abstraction with architechture. I had to develop a process of many smaller iterations -- redoing work, mixing, overlaying, and editing onto previous iterations -- and filtering ideas from each step. These small steps allowed me to control my moves more strategically, which gave me a form that I could adapt easier.

One of the main components for my design was to connect the division of campus life (academics) and the city life which lane splits. The J.O memorial recreation centre creates a walk path from the corner of Lane to Neil ave. As seen in the diagram to the left. As well as my special program, the campus Bier Garden, further solidifies the connection. Bringing life to the area after classes end. See highlighted area to the left for beir garden location.

Which pays a note to his success as as he overlooks the campus in which he won not only medals for but faced inequality at the Olympics and still came out on top. As one moves though the building, Jesse Owens personal memorial is located at the highest room in the building. Which pays a note to his success as he overlooks campus. To which he not only won medals but defeated inequality during the 1936 German olympics.

SHADOWS AND INTERACTION My intentions with this model were to study how the shadow of the building might play a part in its form, to understand how it mimght help address the site. I exagerrated the light positions and worked the camera angle to emphasize this. I disovered that, in this abstract design, itâ€™s not always just about the building, but what the building can produce when light interacts with it.
Project: HOME FOR JEFF Year: FALL 2017 Instructor: WILLIAM FLEMING (KEONI) ABOUT THE PROJECT For my construction class, one of the projects was to design a new building for a skeletal sloth located at Orton Hall. The new building called for a functioning rainscreen wall that had to be formed of masonry units. Originally, the building had to be 400 square feet. But I saw an opportunity to house an education area describing the life of these animals during the prehistoric era. My design utilized the whole site, which measured 180’ x 200’, addressing entrance, visual context, and site/ground formation.
WHAT I LEARNED Revit! This was a construction project, and I chose to take this opportunity to get a foundation using the industry-standard Revit software. I wanted the building to welcome visitors in a way that made them feel as if they were no longer on a campus, but rather in the wooded home of a sloth, while retaining Orton Hall’s range of Ohio’s natural rock.
