â€œAll architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space.â€?

Intent The body of work included in this portfolio aims to exemplify my experience and capabilities in the field of architecture, with the ultimate goal of earning a full time architectural design position at a firm that would use my skill sets in documentation, ingenuity, and productivity to further the firmâ€™s work load eďŹƒciency and overall brand. Subsequently, enhancing my design comprehension, creativity, and experience in the field, which will presumably lead to my professional licensure. The combination of professional internship experience and educational experiences in design-build and classical architecture ultimately intend to make me a more well rounded candidate in order to better suit the firm I work for and to enrich my career.

Colorado Outward Bound School Senior Staﬀ Lodging Humboldt Cabin | Leadville, Colorado graduate Level Architectural Design IV Spring 2016 Professor Rick Sommerfeld aided by Andrew Paddock, & Jd Signom In Collaboration with Craig Dunn, michael Black, & Henry Spiegel Colorado building Workshop | university of Colorado denver
Located on a steep hillside in a lodgepole pine forest, these cabins were designed as micro dormitories for a community of outdoor educators. The cabins sit lightly on the landscape, directing views from private spaces towards trees, rock outcroppings and distant mountain views of the Mosquito Range. More public “community” views are directed into social spaces that develop from the organization of the cabins in relationship to one another. The group consisted of twenty eight students in total. In smaller teams of four we built seven year-round cabins. All of which include heating and lighting. Four are single occupancy and three are double occupancy.

To satisfy clients’ lodging and storage requirements, and to facilitate completion in three weeks of on-site construction, the cabins were conceived out of structural insulated panels (SIP) which allows for year round use. Hot rolled steel provides a low maintenance rain screen for the box. This steel cladding and the vertical columns blend with the lodgepole forest minimizing the visual impact of the cabins. Structural taped glazing on the windows eliminates mullions and connects the occupants directly with natural views. The interior of the cabin is skinned in birch plywood bringing warmth to the interior and evoking a connection with the trees surrounding the site. The plywood is specifically milled to accommodate desks, beds and storage for each user. The walls and casework were prefabricated in Denver, flat packed onto trucks and shipped to Leadville to shorten the on-site construction timeline.

Chelsea District Mixed Arts City Block | High Line, New York Architectural design 7 Fall 2013 In collaboration with Sarah glass Professor Tom Smith | university of Florida
This Manhattan city block, located between 28th and 29th Streets and 10th and 11th Avenues, though largely residential, operates as an arts and arts education center. Programmatically, it is divided into four types of spaces: Visual Arts, dance, Music, Residential, and Commercial. The act of unfolding simultaneously reveals and conceals. This concept was used to generate the overall form and shape of the city block; folds appear in the form of the block, in faรงade movements, and in program placement.

Each artistic expression hosts a dialogue both internally and externally. Music communicates across the courtyard through the form work. The concert theater is located below the residential towers, acting as an anchor to the block. Visual arts communicates through the impacts of film screening and through its transitional locations in the block. Studios are midway up the residential tower, at the setback. Views of the Hudson River, and access to the balcony spaces, allow artists visual and physical movement. Galleries are located on the southern street edge along the unfolding entrance.
Subway and Main Avenues
dance is the focal point of the block. The spaces that the dance studios reside in are visually communicative with each other across voids. As a high energy, physical art form, dance studios occupy the busy street edge of 10th Avenue to entice passersby. These studios have linkages across the courtyard and across the High Line, allowing dancers to watch and learn from one another all while adding a performative element to the users of the High Line.

Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Studio Prospect Park Gateway | Brooklyn, New York ICAA Summer Intensive 2016 Professor Michael Mesko & Stephen Chrisman
The ICAA Summer Studio in Classical Architecture is a four-week, immersive program introducing students to skills, knowledge and resources essential to the practice and appreciation of classical design. It culminates in an esquisse study designing a gateway intervention at the entrance to Prospect Park in brooklyn, ny. Students build a foundation in classical architectural design and composition, the elements of the classical language, proportion, the literature of classical design, drawing & rendering, and traditional materials.
Students are introduced to a conceptual, systematic and historically informed approach to the perennial challenges of building design. Students are introduced to the study of precedent and architectural character, and learn how to apply the classical language in the design of a new building.

Urban Master Planning | Sun Valley, Denver, Colorado graduate Level Architectural Design III Fall 2015 Masterplan completed in collaboration with Anjali Kumar, Jesse Ledin, Ji Lim, and Josh Allen Professor barbara Ambach | university of Colorado denver
In developing a new master plan for the northern most swath of Sun Valley, a Cartesian parti is most appropriate. dividing the site into 4 quadrants and programming a particular theme for each, while carrying residential and strategically placed green spaces throughout, drives the new communityâ€™s built identity. Once the master plan was finalized, each student took control of designing a building on the site. I focused my efforts on a mixeduse building in the live/work quadrant. This area provides residents a place to live close to where they may work and also supplies close-by amenities to take advantage of.

In the live/work quadrant, where my project sits, mixed-use and strictly commercial buildings are planned alongside residential zones. This building sits on a busy thoroughfare and is designed using a bright color palette to draw passersby into the newly developed area for exploration. Largest of the quadrants, the live/learn programmed space provides residents and students alike a place for formal and informal learning through green ways and physical classrooms alongside residential and mixed use building types. The live/play quadrant promotes residents who might live in the surrounding areas to get active and use a community resource in the recreation center. Spanning the main vehicular thoroughfare and extending to the swathâ€™s northern frame, the live/play quadrant is best connected to all parts of the site and promotes the most community interaction through an active lifestyle. In the live/grow quadrant, food production, consumption and distribution drives the programmatic decisions. The zone provides a large field for the community to grow crops, enjoy a prepared meal, and shop at a local grocery store convenient to their living spaces.

“For me, it’s the act of drawing that allows the hand to come into accord with the heart.” – Sambo Mockbee Sketching has the ability to affect a person’s viewpoint. A landscape can visually take on one characteristic, but the moment an artist starts to draw that landscape, he sees it in a whole different way. This is because sketching causes a person to analyze the space, explore shadows, and understand the interactions between nature and occupants.

Classical Interior Wall Exploration
I definitely look at the world differently now. My portfolio of work reveals this personal revelation. The contours of a skyline and distinctions of shadows show up where they hadnâ€™t before. Instead of looking at the lines that define a form, Iâ€™ve started to see that the contrasting shades and tones define the form. Sketching essentially exposes the personality of a space and helps clarify its layout.
