Eiseman Interlock This whole premise of the first project is cubes. We were all given a verb to base are our cube creations on. My verb was interlock and I ran with that. I was to construct my models out of three materials; wood, chipboard, and sticks. Interlocking these materials to create spaces and relationships between the different materials to create the cube.

The Newhouse Experience This was a Partner project that was about drawing building that is Syracuse campus. The building that my group worker on was Newhouse One. We worked together to create sections, perspectives and plans. I created one perspective and the plan. This helped me better analysis the buildings around me and find ways to incorporate them into my designs. Partner: Lawrence Boyer

Two Faced Pavilion This project's design was a pavilion. This pavilion has one desirable view adjacent to a non desirable view. I worked on having the visitor refrain from the non desirable view by having everything go in the direction on the desirable view. I did this by interlocking spatial and programmatically.

Reggae House This was a house created for an artist. My artist was a Reggae musician. I took aspects of Reggae and incorporated them into my building. The main aspect was the idea of coming together. I showed the aspects of Reggae using programmatic and spatial interlocking. This interlocking is designed to bring people together in the same way that the music brings people together.
