Celebrating rehabilitation through art

Bending And Thickening Of A Line

How can art be used to engage community and generate disability awareness? Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, this project borrows narrative from the Japanese artform of Kintsugi about how it embraces imperfections. Thus, the form was developed using a vocabulary informed by the geometry of cracks, which manifested in the form of circulation, wall articulation, both in plan and section, and apertures for light to create unique spaces with intimate conditions of light and shadow.

Ersilia Installation

How do we address the idea of discomfort when most of the built environment aims at achieving an ideal condition of thermal comfort? The installation sought to examine human behavior as they are placed in uncomfortable and unexpected positions during their regular routine. The moire pattern was used to provide surfaces to help obstruct movement and the pattern was generated parametrically.

How can a secured facility such as a tow pound promote community engagement? Located in Port Morris, New York, this project attempts to recreate connection between neighborhood and water’s edge using site and program as a catalyst. Simultaneously, the site as an armature seeks to connect public with the isolated program of a tow pound facility and this is achieved through an event space within program site.

Situated within an existing graveyard, the site for the new building was identiďŹ ed on northeastern corner to minimize encroachment on existing graves and pathways. The idea to integrate chapel and columbarium wall as a singular unit resulted in a chapel nested within columbarium wall with an ambulatory space in between. Entry forecourt and roof were oriented and organized to continue the language of graduated enclosures while speciďŹ c threshold conditions marked transitions between different layers.

Nested Layers

Funerary chapel & columbarium wall


A series of explorations of lines, drawings and narratives to investigate the dynamics between line drawings and their 3-dimensional counterparts. Processes of extractions, overlays and extrusions were employed to translate the complexities and subtleties of line drawings into 3-dimensional spaces. The project hoped to examine various spatial relationships formed within this new space and how these would affect the experience of a user. Parameters were set up to guide the process without deďŹ ning a result, thus allowing for numerous possibilities.
