In this classical studio, each student designed a replacement bridge with space for restaurants and shops in Pisa, Italy. There was no set medium or tool to complete the project. In my project I created all the floor plans and elevations in AutoCAD along with a 3D model in Sketchup rendered with Enscape. Additionally, the front elevation was watercolored,and two wooden models were created. The first model is a detail of one of the balconies hanging over the river and the second model showed the entire bridge in site context. The final materials and presentation were completed mid-December of 2019.

While studying abroad our studio class received the difficult task of designing a modern project in Rome. We were asked to design a building and site that filled a vacant lot that had been empty 112 years. Each student was required to use precedents around Rome to decide their programs. My programs included a hotel running along the Via Guilia. In the back of the hotel I designed 48 apartments with windows facing the Tiber river and Aventine Hill. An occupiable green space that allowed visitors to view the ruins under the site. Finally, a market that closed off the site from the main road along the Tiber. The floor plans and site plan were drafted in AutoCAD. Since model making material was difficult to come by, I decided to make my 3D model in Rhino. The Rhino model was used to make renderings in Enscape and Photoshop perspectives to place the site in Rome. The final materials and presentation were completed early May of 2019.


While studying abroad, the class took a two week break from the main studio project and worked on a partner project with students from Roma Tre University. The two week project was to design a museum to show artefacts of the ancient gladiator training grounds outside the Colosseum. Every group was allowed to approach the site in their own way as long as it included a museum. My partner and I decided to create a site that the visitor could interact with directly. We thought it was important to connect our site to the Colosseum, so we decided to excavate the rest of the earth. We designed an underground museum that recreated the path of ancient gladiators. My partner and I used AutoCAD for the floor plan and site plan. For the sections and renderings, we created a 3D Rhino model. Enscape was used to render our model and Photoshop was used to include site context. Each drawing in the portfolio is one that I contributed and worked on. The final materials and presentation were completed early May of 2019.


The goal of the Stead Project was to create a community center for the citizens in the surrounding neighborhood. Our number one goal was to create a site that brought the community together. Each student needed to design their own community center and it was required to keep the historic building on site. In my site I decided to keep the playground in the front and then I added a community garden for the neighbors across from the playground. Behind the building I installed a basketball court and community pool. For all drawings I used AutoCAD and then to render my drawings I used watercolor on plans, elevations, and sections. The final materials and presentation were completed early May of 2018.

At the end of sophomore year, I completed my first classical studio of architecture. My professor saw potential and recommended me to apply for the summer architecture program at the Institute of Classical Art and Architecture (ICAA). Once accepted I moved to New York City for a month and learned all about classical architecture from architects in the area. During the program we were given a studio project of designing an entrance pavilion into prospect park. We went on site visits and completed precedent studies of other buildings in the park. In our last week we did a day charrette on our design and then we were to hand draw the final project and present it to architects at visiting firms. The final materials and presentation were completed early July of 2018.

In the first semester of sophomore year our project was to analyze a painting assigned to us. My painting was American Gothic. We then had to design several concept models based on our analysis of the painting. Next step was to use these models and hand draw the elevations, plans and sections of our models. After correctly drawing our models we then drew them axonometrically and isometrically. For our midterm we had to present these drawings and then we were given feedback and permission to move to the computer. We needed to take our analysis of the drawings and design a sculpture gallery from it. For the final project I decided to use Rhino for the mass modeling and perspectives of the gallery. The final materials and presentation were completed mid-December of 2017. Axonometric 1 Not to Scale

Sophomore year I took a class called Construction I and we were assigned a famous building anywhere in the world. My two partners and I were assigned Peter Zumthors, Therme Vals. Our project was to research and understand how the Therme Vals was constructed in section and plan. We were required to make a 24" x 36" board, a 1/2 scale section cut model of a detail, and a 1/8th inch scale model of the entire building. We used the laser cutter to cut 1476 pieces of chipboard to create our 1/8th model. Then we decided to cut a roof section because our building had unique skylights that diffused light into the building. The half scale model was created using Chipboard spray painted, dirt, flex seal, foam, and other materials to represent the layers of the section. The final materials and presentation were completed midDecember of 2017.

For our final project in the class we were required to research three famous with different structures and discuss their structural types. For this class we made plater models, Rhino models. Sketchup models, paper models, museum board models and hand drawn models. This class came to an end in May of 2018. RHINO MODELS RHINO MODELS
