Diagrammatic Elements The design of this project revolves around five selected words relating to poetry, space, and movement. In particular, this project attempts to personify elements of division, compression and expansion, triplets, flow, and dissonance. The implication of these elements was a driving force in finding the solution to the design problems presented.
Collaborative Design-Build This project is the result of efforts of nine students working together to organize and complete the design, iteration, and construction of an 8' x 8' x 8' folly. Using wooden components of 2x4s and OSB board in cooperation with a third material of choice, the design was able to provide static and circulation spaces, manipulate sunlight and shading, and redefine the perception of a common household material, window blinds.
Planar Division of Space This project exercised the iterative process by prompting the creation of a cube using planar elements, void space, and the relationship between them. The design addresses the ideas of hierarchy, layering, and aperature.
Iteration Through arrangement Using a combination of casted plaster volumes and basswood sheets, this kit of parts focused on the analysis of voids, volumes, and the definition of space by adding planes. Iterated with respect to chosen spatial terms such as "interlock", "overlap", and "axis", the final product was a series of arrangements that best displayed the given terms.
Case Study House
Digital Practice Tasked with recreating plan, section, and axon documentation of Schroder House by Gerrit Rietveld Schroder, this exercise emphasized the importance of lineweights, hierarchy, and visual accuracy. The use of drawing techniques in the illustration of the documents inform details about the building form and the division of interior spaces. Circulation, private vs. public spaces, and rhythmic elements became more prominant as the linework was refined.

In the Spirit of Music The focus of this project was to redesign an existing space based on a theme of choice. This project is based on the union of music and architecture. The main idea of the design is to make tangible the experience and emotion caused by the piece "Cornfield Chase" by Hans Zimmer. Sequence of space and materiality were two driving forces behind the design.

Piranesi Recreation Piranesi's depiction of fictitious prisions was the basis for this drawing. Using pieces of his original works, a new composition was digitally collaged and then hand rendered using only cross hatching with Micron pens. The drawing focused on creating depth, conrast in shadows, and creating detail using density of hatching.
Invisible Cities Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino verbally illustrates 56 fictional cities. These illustrations depict Valdrada, a city that mirrors itself in every aspect except its most fundamental values. The hand render on the right exercised the use of threepoint perspective and contrasting medias. The digital depiction on the left experimented with opacity and overlay textures.
