The word Castell means Castle and this project creates a space for the assembly and disassembly of human castles, which the sign of a successful Casteller.
â€œTo be, is to be HEREâ€? Summer 2017
The HERE of Barcelona is a presence that is always present. The act of being here is what makes a place manifest out of being. The X is the mark of my perspective and my experience for what is happening at each moment. The circumstantial evidence allowed for the awareness of place and the ability to interpret an essence of the space into a culture-based place and a place-based culture. 01_Collage of the site specific essence 02_Reducing the information to the lines formed by my collage of the site and then expanding them past the boundary of the page. 03_The form created by lifting the restriction of the page size 04_Catalogue of the shapes/negative space in the expanded form. 05_Reducing the information to the intersections formed by my collage of the site . 06_Reducing the mark of the intersection from a cross to a circle.
The form begins to float above the castellers making them appear as the structure supporting the cloud of program above.
Catalogue of the location of the intersections, mentioned above, which was then mirrored into 3D space and lines from these dots were extruded. The shapes from the new form were extruded to typical room height, three meters, and then shifted along to the point at which the extruded lines intersected in space. The forms outline in the collage are extruded to average room height and then shifted to the point of intersection in three dimensional space.
This form began to inform the volume modeled in the image to the left. This was the first study model, made from bristol, and it begins to use a stepping and stacking system to create the space. Also, the idea of a canopy to house the castellers instead of a traditional interior space begins to emerge.
Top Floor Plan
Ground Floor Plan
The ground floor is designed with a palette of wall typologies clad in Barcelona specific imagery in order to create a new image that has nothing to do with the originals. The ground floor also serves as the castellersâ€™ main practice and event space. The wall typologies inform the use of the space while also providing a permeable boundary for the castellers to practice.

The main event space is in the top floor, twenty three meters above ground level. This results in the secondary program hanging from what acts as the canopy for the castellers. This is important because now the castellers, human castel, is the only program touching the ground as though they are support the canopy above. The design is the manifestation of literal and inventive operating together in order to work in a contemporary way within an old town. The top floor has subtle shifts in floor and ceiling heights to create different types of space that can be flexible based on the event. It is also intended to be higher than the above of Barceloneta like it is a cloud.
Missouri Western State University, in St. Joseph, Missouri has a growing School of Fine Arts and a need to redistribute and increase the schoolâ€™s capacity.
Parasites Spring 2017 This comprehensive design studio investigated the transformation of an existing School of Fine Arts and the opportunities afforded by the union of its current context with unique programmatic demands. Endeavoring to harness unfound potential, flexibility was a central theme in shaping this design solution particularly as it relates to the design of a Black Box theatre. Pictured to the left are different layouts of stage, seating, and lighting solutions for black box theaters. This project proposes the removal of circulation from the interior of the building to the exterior in the form of parasites in order to allow for the reallocation and redistribution of space.

This project focuses on the opportunities allowed for programming in relationship to circulation and how it can occur outside of the building. The strategy being employed is the act of latching on to the existing built structure in the form of parasites. Three different parasites occupy the space outside of the building, one for each department, Music, Dance, and Theatre, Cinema, and Studio Arts. The parasites start to become about more than circulation when space specific program is tucked into the spaces the parasites are creating.

Symbiotic Habitat Fall 2016
As a part of the last Core Studio, 419 deals exclusively with different site specific housing typologies and strategies. The southside of Chicago, is an undeserved area with a predominately African American population. In addition to the social implications of working here, there is also the presence of Chicagoâ€™s elevated train and the neighborhoodsâ€™ relationship with transit. My concept was to build multiple smaller complexes with a total of five units with a first floor of commercial space to serve as economic incubators for the neighborhood. The commercial space mixed with housing would provide less traditional options for working, like live-work, which wasnâ€™t a possibility before. These units were scaled to match the existing housing units on the site and would fill in the vacant lots to stimulate the neighborhood. This building typology could then be adapted to serve other underprivileged neighborhoods as an incision of socially relevant development.

Urban Vitals Fall 2018
Kansas City is looking to introduce a new Bus Rapid Transit system to better provide transportation opportunities to disadvantaged neighborhoods along Prospect Ave. The site of this project is 63rd & Prospect Ave, south of Downtown Kansas City. Located adjacent to a regional hospital campus, this was the anchor of the proposal. The life expectancy of the surrounding neighborhood was 63 years while the adjacent neighborhoods had life expectancy as high as 79 and 83 years to the north and south respectively. This is the disparity the project is trying to address while also considering how the new BRT stops could double as access to not only transportation but also to promote health and well-being. * Group Project with Danielle Bagwin
The first step to reintegrating the regional hospital into the urban fabric was addressing its large and internally focused campus. This reactive healthcare system can be seen in the first diagram. By returning to the original grid of the site while also redistributing the hospitalâ€™s program throughout the site is how this project proposes to improve the health and well-being of those living in the neighborhood. The proposal introduces new opportunities for residents to be physically active as well as increases access to healthcare at each BRT stop. This project now integrates health and well-being into the character of the neighborhood rather than imposing it on the residents, a majority of which do not have any type of healthcare.
These three axons show where all of the BRT stops occur on the site. From the north it is 59th & Prospect, 63rd & Prospect, and Meyer & Prospect. 59th & Prospect is designated as the heart, stroke, and cancer care district because of the existing aging and majority African American population, who have an increased chance of experiencing heart disease and strokes. 63rd & Meyer is the women’s and psychiatric care district. This location is central to the site due to the idea that it “takes a village” to accommodate raising children and addressing mental illness. Meyer & Prospect is the location of emergency care in order to leverage the existing emergency care center and its infrastructure.

GOOGLE FIBER DISTRIBUTION WIFI
BIOSWALES PERMEABLE SURFACE
This section perspective shows the different techniques being applied to the street scape and bus stops in order to better address issues of environmental health and well-being. The stations, bioswales, and permeable surfaces collect rainwater and stormwater runoff in order for it to be filter, stored, and redistributed. Kansas City is also one of multiple cities already equipped with Google Optic Fibre so the project proposals the distribution of this fibre in order to increase WiFi access. The goal of these interventions is to create a more equitable community that is promoting health and well-being in order to address the current disparities.

Metropolitan Design | Fort Worth, TX Spring 2018
Downtown Fort Worth is covered in surface parking and parking garages as tall as fifteen stories. The site being proposed is adjacent to the Intermodal Transit Center and Phillip Johnsonâ€™s Convention Center. This collage is based on a site visit and is my interpretation of intensities on the site. The images show snapshots walking through the site which currently serves as surface parking and service entries for hotels, businesses, and the convention center. This intensity of temporal boundaries as well as car-centric infrastructure leave this site unactivated. This is an ongoing project
