Over the past twelve months at Alfredo De Vido Architects I worked in a position to observe the design process and the impact of major design decisions. I was responsible for the contract documents of two projects, one of which is now under construction. Other responsibilities included as-built and redline revisions, and creating physical models for all building and furniture proposals.

I emerged from a rigorous program at Virginia Tech and semester in Europe with an interest in architecture that is deeply rooted in the realm of the material, the historic, and the symbolic, and their role as instruments in design. In studio, I found an understanding for the need to create, and I maintain a reputation for superior craftsmanship in my work.

Undergraduate Thesis â€˜02 - â€˜03 Acknowledging its historical reference, a gallery is a place of viewing and interaction, one of exhibit and social. The program of a gallery must then provide a place not only to accommodate, but to promote these interactions. The building is generated mainly from a utilitarian design. The upper two floors remain simple to accommodate movement through the exhibit spaces. Other spaces serve only for circulation and adequate lighting of the collections. The building is organized by a series of enclosure systems. The lighter materials open their spaces to the town. The change in material assignment suggests the hierarchy among internal spaces. Glass block filters sunlight and distributes it down a free-standing wall. The wall then works as a dynamic element providing a background against which to view the exhibits.

The reason for architecture is to provide a place. Our buildings speak for us. They tell the story of our existence. An intensive thesis becomes an opportunity to study architecture in terms of its process.
