Resume


Transit/Trailhead GD2: Studio, Instructor James Wheeler The western neighborhoods of Duluth, MN are underserved in many ways. This project focused on two things: 1) Improving the transit infrastructure for the western neighborhoods by combining them with the trail systems, and 2) Placemaking in the western neighborhoods to bring young people to these areas. This structure is the trailhead of a system of transit/trail stops in the neighborhoods west of 35w. The three smaller stops along the transit/trail (shown right) were designed by my group member Sean Higgins.

Final Model


Weisman Desk Toy GD1: Toy Design Catalyst, Instructor Barry Kudrowitz This was a group project with Xiao Han, Payman Salehishafa, Mike Silvestrini, and Jason Vanselow. We had to design a desk toy puzzle of the Weisman Art Museum that would be sold in the museum shop. The puzzle has ten pieces, uses two different kinds of wood, and is at 1/64�: 1’ scale.


Food in Five Acts GD1: Studio, Instructor Adam Marcus This was a group project with Sandra Callies, Perri Kinsman, Oleg Koslovski, and Ben Partridge. The goal was to reinterperate a five course meal into five separate acts. In this installation, the “course� was a puree of a fruit or vegetable, presented on a shelf that reflected one of the characteristics of the vegetables. The courses were consumed individually, and the participants of the meal were conveyed through the installation with light. Although the meals were eaten individually, the participants were visible to spectators outside the installation.


Film Analysis GD2: Studio, Instructor Andzrej Piotrowski In this project we had to analyze space in a film and how it could relate to an imagined event space in the real world. I analyzed a scene from requiem for a dream, and attempted to translate some of the cinematic qualities to the Washington Avenue Bridge.

Cass Gilbert Facade

GD2: Studio, Instructor Andzrej Piotrowski This was an adaptive reuse project of a storage building with a protected facade that was later used as a theater. The conversion involved carving out a large portion of the interior to create an event space. In keeping with the spirit of that formal logic, I carved out more spaces in the interior and proposed that the new program encompass all aspects of music: recording, producing, retail, rehearsal, and performance. The building focuses on two main performing spaces, one is the existing open space, part of the building itself, the other pulls away from and is acoustically sealed from the rest of the building.

GD1: Studio, Instructor Adam Marcus This project centered on creating a restaurant for a client that would reflect the attitude of the client. In this case, the client was NY Bite Club; a members only underground supper club. It provides a high end dining experience in an exclusive, though casual, setting. Because of the somewhat clandestine nature of the client, the site is below an alley, and the main difficulty in the project was bringing in light to the space, which was achieved through perforations and slits in the ceiling.
