Being in Upstate New York for the past five years, part of my education at Syracuse has focused on the Native lands that neighbor the university. The Onondaga Nation is the closest Native Territory located eight miles South of campus. The task was to study their community, their land and the intersection of both to create a community center. The design focused on agriculture, athletics and education. The Southern portion is a greenhouse with classrooms and studio spaces nestled between gardens. The Northern part houses larger, more communal programs like the gym, theater and museum. 1

For the Advanced Building Systems class, my group and I chose to study the new Gateway Center at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry by Architerra Inc. Our semester long precedent analysis required us to read the construction documents, rebuild the building using Revit, and test structural, mechanical and performative aspects of the building. The project and investigation allowed my team to learn that the Gateway Center had all the right intentions in its mechanical and performative technologies but were poorly implemented resulting in a somewhat faulty finished product. However, we did also learn that the structure is intact and that the building functions well programmatically. 2

Ground Floor Plan

My partner and I focused our scheme around a gardening and composting system with hydronic radiant heating running through it. The hot compost pile could then both simultaneously heat the home and perpetually produce fertile soil for a fruitful garden, all within a regenerative, self-sustaining life cycle to feed and warm inhabitants. 3

In the spring of 2015, I studied abroad in London, UK. During my stay I explored London’s amazing architecture and had the opportunity to complete a precedent analysis on the historic Bedford Square. I redrew the documents that were maintained at the AA and discovered a lot about the building’s construction and very refined details. The complexity, order and layering in Bedford Square taught me about British history, design and decor. 4


Workspace Rendering

Floor Plan Level Two

Syracuse Cinematheque Studio IV | 2014

The cinematheque in downtown Syracuse, NY provides film education and entertainment through exhibition spaces, production studios, and classroom theaters. The trapezoidal shape of a movie projection and the sloped theater style seating drove the formal gestures of the building. For the studio, I was chief manager of the site model production. I conducted design discussions amongst my peers and delegated tasks to suit people’s strengths.

Site Model

The workspace rendering shows the trapezoidal qualities of the space and highlights the large window that becomes a drop down movie screen for group production uses, which can be found in the floor plan above looking West. The trapezoidal form can also be noted in the model situated in the middle of the site model. 5

Site Model

This proposed hotel and rest area located in Vail, CO is a convenient highway stop between Vail Ski Resort and Breckenridge Ski Resort. The project is also located on a hiking trail and a bike path thus providing access and relief to a local hikers and bikers. The design focused on solar orientation, geothermal heating from the hot springs below, implementing local materials, and optimizing views of the mountain range. 6

Site Analysis

During my time at Robert A.M. Stern Architects, I worked on two projects at two different points in their completion. The first project was a new academic building for the University of Portland during the schematic design phase. The team I was on compiled site analysis, precedent references, and program square footages. With that as our ground work, as a team we developed and edited various schemes by producing diagramtic plans. Once a specific scheme was finalized, we built a 3D Sketchup model and placed it on a virtual site of the campus to take perspective views. We completed this process four times and created a 110 page schematic design client package to be presented by our team leader. 7

The second project I worked on at Robert A.M. Stern Architects was an Inn during the construction documents phase. I was in charge of correcting redlines, cleaning CAD drawings and managing schedules. The team I worked with held meetings twice a week to proof the sheet set and to assign design updates. The process taught me a lot about how large firms operate and delegate to develop work and complete projects. It was important for me to learn about all the little details that go into making a construction document set and the amount of revision involved. 8


Sectional Diagram

Residential AIA Award Submissions JM+P | 2013

At Joeb Moore + Partners, I worked on a variety of high-end modern homes around Greenwich, CT. My responsibilities included CAD drawings, making models, and organizing databases. The sectional diagram was put together as part of an award submission to the AIA CT. The collage shows the procession of the experience from the entry courtyard sculpture, through the house, and out back to the pool and outdoor lounge with views and access to the Long Island Sound.

Programmatic Plan | Design Collaboration with Joeb Moore & Thalasa Curtis

The programmatic plan was also part of an award submission. The drawing focused on line-weight legibility and clearly noting the floor plan with furniture and floor textures. I learned about the importance of line thickness and highlighting key design elements. 9


New Merchandise Mart Lobby A+I | 2015

At Architecture + Information (A+I), I worked on a variety of architectural interior projects at various points in their development. I was fortunate to be hands-on and involved with everything from schematic design to surveying constructions sites.

The section, rendering and material swatches are all part of a design development presentation about the sequential narrative of the new lobby space in the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, IL. The team I worked with dealt with preserving and renovating an existing building while adding new interior elements where permitted. Creating a story, designing the moments and finding the materials were enjoyable exercises during my time at A+I. 10

Making this construction document taught me about the subtleties and assembly differences in a variety of wall details and the importance of 11 calling out every material.
