PROFILE Education

EXPERIENCE Education

Acquiring knowledge through my undergraduate degree in kitchen and bath design, my interest in the way the interior of a building relates to the exterior developed. That growth has now led me to further my education in architectural design. Embracing elements that are becoming crucial in our lives such as sustainability and smart development, I work with the intent of using architecture to enhance our environment.

Clemson University, May 2014 Master of Architecture Candidate

Graduate Research Assistant, Clemson University Community Research + Design Center | 2013-2014

I have collaborated on many different large and small scale projects and through that process have obtained great respect for preserving the past, utilizing adaptive reuse. Designing historical renovations in particular has helped me to understand the present while also embracing what has been developed over time. My interest in architectural history and its repetitive form & structure reflected in today’s buildings illustrates the importance of the past in current design. All of these aspects together provide me with a clear vision of linking the past to the present in my own architecture. I have studied a wide range of subjects both in undergraduate and graduate courses and through that knowledge have gained great respect for our ever-changing enviornment and how architecture needs to react to those changes. I plan to further my career in the architectural field by achieving valuable knowledge through multi-disciplinary design in order to expand my depth of interests and ideas. I look forward to continuing to challenge myself within the field in order to gain further experience and understanding of architecture as a whole.

URBAN FARM 7


CITY MAPPING + CONDITIONS Today Los Angeles is a city of fissures. The urban fabric is a sprawling series of edges & divisions; solid & void. This project takes these fissures & gives purpose to those interstitial unused spaces by reconnecting the surrounding areas & reintegrating agriculture back into the city fabric.

ORIGINAL TRANSPORTATION

The historical city of Los Angeles was split evenly between agriculture and infrastructure. The farming aspects of the city have today been lost amongst its structure & interstates that divide the towns and neighborhoods within.

SITE CONNECTIONS Boyle Heights is a city located east of downtown Los Angeles and has been cut off by the growing core interstates that surround it. Despite that, the need for bike paths and public transportation has grown in recent years as shown in the adjacent diagram. Furthermore, the decision to extend the current bike and pedestrian paths surrounding our site was necessary. The river currently has a growing pedestrian and bike path that we decided was a strong linkage to the city and surrounding neighborhoods. In order to provide heightened access to our farm, market & restaurant programs we embraced and strengthened this connection to our site. This growing city has the potential to change its ways of automobile transportation and link in to current modes of public transportation in order to reduce carbon emissions and heighten sustainable practices, which we focused on throughout our site.

BUILDING LAYOUT

Using the urban mapping diagrams we formulated, the building was designed to connect back into those original city grids as well as the prime surrounding visual connections. This allowed the building to become a solidified program that integrates the urban landscape within its form. We allowed the building to reach out to the surrounding neighborhoods, inviting them in to enjoy the fruitions of the farm’s produce and products. This ultimately provides a direct connection to the needs of the people within Boyle Heights, giving them fresh healthy options in their own backyard as well as a place to gather and learn in a lush urban landscape.

SITE LEE HALL - CLEMSON UNIVERSITY CENTENNIAL INSTALLATION Grassroots was designed to represent all 5,200+ Clemson University Architecture Alumni & current students for the School of Architecture’s Centennial Celebration in fall 2013. We developed a table graphic with all student names, allowing them to build their own story within the larger historical bio-scape. Providing stickers representing each program, study abroad location & certificates, users build their root & place it at their most current graduation year to visually show how our school has grown over the past 100 years.

SLIDING PLANES - SIDE TABLE

MOCk-UP MODEL

CNC PROCESS

The concept for my furniture design, a side table, was to eliminate all extra hardware or supports such as nails, screws, glue and utilize the pieces of the product to structurally create it. A simple 3/4” piece of birch plywood was used to CNC cut the two end pieces and perpendicular support pieces as shown in the cut file above. Three pieces of 14” x 20” 1/8” glass were used as the shelves for each level. This allows for easy movement or disassembly to store flat. I wanted the piece to be simple yet functional to the users while also keeping the price under $100.

Within the 30-city block sized quarry in Columbia, SC each student in our studio was given a site. based on characteristics developed by the studio we were challenged to come up with our own program that would fit cohesively within the larger quarry connections & programs. This site is a focal point alongside the main quarry path on the edge of the water and represents a pause in the user’s journey. The design reveals an exposure of the main axes, creating a tranquil experience that’s submerged within the verticality of the quarry.

INTERIOR EXPERIENCE

YOGA SPACE


The interior of the Spa + baths within the quarry acts as a subtle fragmented form that opens the viewer up to the grander quarry at specific points. Users experience the monumental depth of the quarry as you move up through the building, feeling one with the earth surrounding them. This calming connection to the landscape creates a place of rest and relaxation that users are drawn to.

This 10,000 square foot craft brewery is situated at the intersection of Augusta Street, River Street & Main Street in Greenville, SC. Incorporating the southern paradigm of transportation, comparisons of amorphous and rigid grids drove the form of this building creating ramping circulation throughout. A structural pivot concept utilized the large brewery hinge doors to layout the plan & structure of the brewery. BREWERY 59

Located along the High Line in the Meatpacking District of New York City, this museum was developed utilizing a superimposed image & its overlapping forms. Particular lines were taken out to drive the project in section while also connecting spaces in plan accordingly. Primary shapes were created with the overlapping images and specific sustainable features such as controlled sun, wind, and ventilation.

PAVILION DESIGN BURNHAM PAVILION, CHICAGO

The Burnham Pavilion was constructed, analyzed and reassembled into a new pavilion located in Sydney, Australia incorporating specific views of the city within the experience of a helical staircase. The focus of this project was to understand the pavilion’s construction & symbolic representation to its city.

Deconstructing the porous composition into a dense composition gave an experiential quality to a new pavilion in Sydney, Australia. Observing the different ways the Burnham Pavilion was interacted with allowed my team to take that same interaction and reconstruct a form. The helical staircase incorporates slivers of views as you travel higher up, building up to the moment the observation deck is opened up to the Sydney Opera House as its main perspective. SYDNEY
