BIOMIMICRY DESIGN + BUILD Parametric Design: Passively Adaptive Architecture | Supervised by Kris Nelson and James Leach Ames, Iowa, Spring 2013 This independent studio project was created to design passively responsive architecture through the means of biomimetics and parametric design. Through the research of biomimetic functions, adaptable forms were developed by the use of parametric modeling. In a proof of concept, a prototype was built to test the system at full scale. This prototype was designed to be an inhabitial space that would passively react to the environmental forces of sun and wind.

PHOTOSYNTHESIS STOMATA A stomata is a pore, found in the epidermis of leaves, stems, and other organs used to control gas exchange. Carbon dioxide enters the plant through these openings and is used in photosynthesis.

CORAL POLYPS Coral polyps secrete hard carbonate exoskeletons which support and protect their bodies. The resulting geometry of a single polyps is dependent upon the shape of the adjacent polyps. A geometric precedent.

ACORN BARNACLES Acorn Barnacles are encrusters; they attach themselves permanently to hard substrates within their environment. Their calcite shells are impermeable, and they possess two plates, which they can slide across their aperture when not feeding.

CHICAGO VOID Facade and Unit Design | Supervised by Cameron Campbell Chicago, Illinois, Spring 2010 This project focused on the vast scale of facade application as well as the rigid scale of residential units. The design was set within a chosen void along the Chicago Loop. Within this void a series of 4,096 cubic feet or 16 feet cubed dwellings served as modular units for a residential building. In considering these parameters, the conceptual basis of this project was the idea of gradient as it pertains to interior/exterior conditions and their relationship with human transparency.

NEW YORK HOUSING Residential Housing Design | Supervised by Rob Whitehead New York, New York, Spring 2011 Located in the Soho neighborhood of Manhattan, this housing design involved the challenge of integrating residential design with a commercial influence. Its specific constraints were to design a structure with a minimum of 20 single family residences as well as a commercial space for a company and service type of the designers choice. The driving inspiration behind this projects design were the pace and velocity in which New York City functions and how these attributes related to the context and dwelling within New York City. These observations led to the idea of movement and perception of change. This perception of change can be seen through the imagery characteristics of focus and blur. The design’s basis involved the concept that this aggressive design can only be perceived as a result of the consistency of the contextual background, and in this way the residential housing design embodies focus and blur.

COLLECTOR’S LOFT Residential Unit Design | Supervised by Rob Whitehead New York, New York, Spring 2011 Within an imagined residential building, the focus of this project was to design a loft space specifically for a fictional collector that was assigned. The loft was designed around the needs of a New Era 59fifty flat bill hat collector. In considering the collector’s profile and the collection, the idea of transitional identity between perception of public and personal persona became the basis of the units design. The concept of processional growth in terms of control and commitment also influenced this design.

COLUMBUS MUSEUM Columbus Center for Innovative Objects of Design | Supervised by Gregory Palermo Columbus, Indiana, Fall 2011 The Columbus, Indiana Center for Innovative Objects of Design is a mixed-use museum program focused around the exhibition of innovative industrial design items. Inspired by a vision of community success, the proposed museum includes a 40,000 sq. ft program of spaces ranging from exhibition to educational, with a proposed location in the downtown district of the Midwestern city of Columbus, Indiana. The project’s driving inspiration involved the understanding of a prescribed linear passage. Columbus as a community has been constantly been under the influence of industrial and manufacturing functions of the city. The path that the community and culture travel on is of a controlled nature and is represented by a strict order. This proposed museum design represents the fragmentation of this idea of time through a connection of past, present, and future.

BOSTON SYMPHONY CENTER Contemporary Music Performance Hall | Supervised by Kris Nelson Boston, Massachusetts, Fall 2012 The Boston Symphony Center is a new satellite that complements the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Its focus is on housing contemporary performance that will aim to target younger audiences. The South Harbor location is ideal for a targeting a younger demographic. The South Harbor neighborhood is undergoing major development that includes residential, cultural, community, and retail projects. The proposed project is located along the Fort Point Channel and is immediately adjacent to the Boston Children’s Museum. A riverside board walk extends the entire length of the site and offers an active public space to the community. This design aims to facilitate the already active site while sensitively connecting a changing cityscape.

URBAN CAMOUFLAGE Conceptual Imagery | Supervised by Cameron Campbell Spring 2011 “Urban Camouflage” was a conceptually based personal project that focused the idea of how individual identity is formed and adapts within a surrounding or “place.” Imagery was then production of a film. This project was inspired by the book Camouflage, by Neil Leach, more specifically the quote that reads: This desire to assimilate potentially contains within it a specifically architectural concern, in that assimilation involves a process of relating to the environment. While that environment might include the appearance and behavior of other human beings, it might equally be constituted by the surrounding physical environment, the urban fabric of our cities, and the landscape of our countryside.

SCULPTURE Contemporary Sculpture and Installation | Supervised by Mike Stanley Spring 2013 This course focused on the utilization of contemporary media through various installation scales. Each project was conceptualized and executed in accordance with the experimental nature of the sculpture course.

Duct Tape Figures | College of Design, Iowa State University Ames, Iowa Spring 2013 For this project each student was required to create a duct tape based mold of another students body. The body figure then could be placed anywhere within the College of Design building and in any position the student desired. The goal of this project was to engage others outside of the class through the humanization of inanimate objects.

33


Burn Pile | King Pavilion, Iowa State University Ames, Iowa Spring 2013 The Burn Pile was a one week installation created to display my experience living in the Hill Country of Central Texas, and the growth my personal relationships endured. Modeled after the cedar tree burn piles I stacked, the visitors of the installation were welcomed to inhabit my emotional frustration, and experience my release and growth through audio and visuals displayed on the interior of the installation. The installation could be entered from each of its four sides suggesting that personal growth isn’t always a linear progression with a beginning and an end, but impasse and regression are also important components in personal growth.

Existentialist Construct Ames, Iowa Spring 2013 This sculpture piece was based on the relationship between individual and a societal construct. The design was informed by research into existential theory. The form suggests that even though a societal construct exists, one cannot lose sense of their individual existence in the collective societal essence.
