The given site on Governor’s island, NYC is surrounded by well known symbols of American and/or urban ideals that could be considered indexical. According to Rosalind Krauss, an index can be defined as “that type of sign which arises as the physical manifestation of a cause, of which traces, imprints, and clues are examples.” The iconic nature of the skyline surrounding Governor’s island provides an indexical context to situate oneself to carefully study the boundary between the physical and metaphysical by creating a unique atmospheric condition through the process of monumentally disrupted and redefined progression. The program is comprised of three main parts (from north to south): the auditorium, the classroom building, and the meditation space. Each of which is placed specifcally to separate types of learning, while creating a sense of displacement throughout the site. This studio project was done in collaboration with Joe Kastner, Nicole Harrison, and myself. However, my focus was on drawings, renderings, and structural details.

Uihlein Redesign

Locate historical This theoretical urban project was done during my semester abroad at IE University in Segovia. It tackles the issues of historical preservation and renovation of homes either abondonded or in low-income areas by systematically redefining the typology of the 19th century victorian homes into buildings to stimulate the community. The example provided is the revelopment of the home of Alfred Uihlein, an executive of the Schlitz Brewing company in the 1890s. It stood in the affluent German neighborhood known as Uihlein Hill, which has since been designated for light industry by the Urban Renewal Program. The original house, along with many other buildings of the era, was demolished in 1970. I specifically chose this house because of its preserved schematics, and the design freedom allowed in a theoretical redevelopment of the neighborhood. Drawing inspiration from Gordon Matta-Clark, this house was designed to be a hostel and/or community center.

Three other students and I collaborated to create a series of drawings that depicted a diorama to explore the economical, ecological, and political situation of electrical waste in Ghana, Africa. The image to the left is our diorama, depicting in Magritte-style a mountain of electrical waste. The contrast between the foreground and the background is meant to dampen the darker implications of the drawing by making the mountain of debris picturesque, only revealing itself upon closer inspection. This alludes to the deceptive nature of how curation of information concerning the issues of climate changes can sometimes be presented.

This three-day work shop led by Neyran Turan focused on climate change as a cultural and political idea that requires a renewed architectural imagination. The goal was to tackle the question of representation in relation to climate change through the design of dioramas that depict imaginary future dipictions within a fictitious natural museum that presents episodes of resource extraction and waste.


3rd Year Studio Project: LINK

LINK is a mixed-use project set in the Cultural District of Fort Worth, TX.. After visiting the site and the surrounding area, the design was derived from bridging a visual transition from the horizontal of the iconic museums across the street (including designs by Louis Kahn, I.M. Pei, and Renzo Piano) to the vertical of the adjacent residential area north of the site. The orientation of these stacked units optimizes floating view over the Cultural District, while its program allows for flexibility, a strong sense of community , and projected commerce that can accomadate a changing urban context. This project was completed under the direction of Jungwoo JI, in collaboration with one other student.

ACSA C om pe t i t ion S u bm i ss ion 2016: P r e s er vat ion

The image shown is an interior rendering of a proposal develped by myself and one other student for the ACSA Competition Preservation as Provocation in 2016. We were to design a new visitor's center for the Mies Van Der Rohe's Farnsworth House. The design made many obvious illusions to Mies' style and early modernism, including simple geometries, reflective and industrialized materials, and framed views.

Personal Project: Abstraction

Abstraction is a personal project I developed to allow me to reflect upon the work I have completed. It is a collection of abstract images created for no other purpose but to see what life I could breathe into elements of process work from other projects. Sketches, models, and photographs are all mediums that can be expanded upon in tangental ways, and even in ways that can expand upon the very nature of the original projects. The image shown was a Photoshop/drawing hybrid of a process model from my third year project, LINK.

Bazaars Just as the engine sucks the last drop of gasoline dry is the moment when the coffee thrusters kick in, accelerating faster than before the windshield dilating in the shadows as they rush past with their sleepy eyes and disappear into the arms of lamp light illuminating the pages of my book. By day the studio bustles with life like a bazaar, but now the long stretch of darkness from beyond my lamp slows its breathing to match my own, looking over my shoulder intently as I pour myself into work like molten metal. I pause to look at the time, but of course, The clock sneers at me And continues its slow dirge into the early hours of tomorrow.
