DESTINED ASCENSION We all start from somewhere

For the final project of my first semester of design studio, students were asked to create a model with the purpose of understanding scale and proportion. Destined Ascension is a demonstration of a well-circulated and spaced inhabitation with the inspiration of a hotel. The concept behind the model is “destination� and how from the bottom, you can see all the platforms above you and identify where you need to go to get there.

PERPETUAL SHIFT Medley of repeating forms

In an early modeling project, I made Perpetual Shift to display the usage of sheared shapes in a linear and slightly rotating spatial organization. I also familiarized myself with using the woodshop, where I was able to construct the composition of mat board, wire, and manufactured wood. Axonometric Drawing


Innovative low-profile seating, easily assembled I believe it is important for an architect to have a wide range of interests when it comes to designing and I quickly developed drafting and craftmanship skills developing furniture. I took into account the ergonomics of how people sit and built a stool where occupants could keep their feet on the floor, resulting in better blood flow through the body compared to a stool where ones legs are dangling. With a wide range of deliverables to submit, I’ve improved my visual communication skills doing this project. Joint Detail Drawing Orthographic Drawings

The premier fan experience well before the big game The success of a sports franchise heavily relies on attendance, regardless of the team’s performance. For the purpose of raising awareness and selling tickets, the Sacramento Basketball Expo serves as strategically spaced interactive advertising, where people can buy apparel, take pictures, etc to become excited for upcoming events.

Revit, Photoshop

From research, I’ve learned that Revit is one of the most desired software skills of architecture firms in the country. Since my classes didn’t necessarily include Revit into its curriculum, I started becoming familiar with the program as well as Building Information Modeling on my own. The Canary House provides a lot of open space , indoor and outdoor, for occupants to use. In addition to its modern , yellow accented look, the large amount of deck space makes the Canary House stand out.

Construction Document and Projection Study—Urbana, Illinois Students were introduced to the analysis of construction documents, from site plans to measured details. I practiced AutoCAD throughout the semester by frequently visiting the existing building and recreating such construction documents based on measurements and on-site sketches.

Building Information Modeling —Champaign, Illinois

With the intent of recreating the building’s floor plans, elevations, and sections, I am using Revit to explore the components of Business Information Modeling. Starting by recreating caissons in the foundation of the building, I have worked my way upwards to digitally constructing significant elements of the structure, from curtain walls and metal panels to elevator shafts and terraces.


Light Frame Construction Study—Champaign, Illinois

ARCH 231 emphasized the importance of basic wood construction and visiting this building helped us identify its internal components. By making a model physical anatomical model of the Taft House, I also created a stepby-step analysis of the construction process using Google Sketchup.
