Pursuing a M. Arch II degree at SCI-Arc to deepen my design understanding and prepare for professional practice. I have an in-depth understanding of technological and computational design strategies as well as interests in experimental urbanism and interactive design. I aim to explore more of these interests and develop new ones as I progress in my architectural education and professional career.

EFFERVESCE


EFFERVESCE EFFERVESCE considers how design can reflect on the tragic event of the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting. Rather than a monument, this memorial is an encounter and an event -- a place of interaction and contemplation. Appearing as a filigreed and dematerializing wall, it inhabits middle of the site allowing viewers to circumnavigate the structure. The convex shape of each wall surface subtly captures space without occupying it, while the curvature establishes a focal zone within the field. Within this zone are 49 vessels suspended in the porous structure, 1 for each life lost during the shooting. Upon closer inspection, one discovers that these objects are in fact mechanisms: a plunger, siphon and wand, modeled on a simple toy bubble gun. Each bubble blown is a fleeting yet vivid reminder of a life lost, and perhaps, a moment of joy.

PV=nRT


PV=NRT As an approach to a kinetic facade system, PV=nRT begins to speculate a kinetic facade system which relies on the Ideal Gas Law as a way to shade and provide programmatic flexibility for New Inc. headquarters in New York City. The facade is created by combining two systems of glazing, a spider curtain wall as well as a storefront system which exists on the floors of the New Inc. Building in New York City. Each floor is comprised of six glass chambers which house 21 elastic ETFE balloons which block nearly all direct sunlight. As these chambers heat up, the change in temperature causes the gas inside of the volume to expand the balloons, filling the chamber with the ETFE shading balloons through a buoyancy effect. This system depends solely on the heat that is absorbed by the building envelope and gravity which creates a passive kinetic system. COTE TOP 10 COMPETITION

To take advantage of these properties of pressure, I defined a 4’ x 12‘ x 3’ volume in which ETFE shading device lies into. This volume will provide enough space for a ETFE balloon to expand within the static volumes and create a nearly opaque panel through color and frit patterns. This panel would then be repeated along the surface of the building in order to create a completely cohesive facade panel system.

INFRA-STRUCTURED WAREHOUSE


INFRA-STRUCTURED WAREHOUSE Distribution centers are highly dependent on the shipping and receiving of goods through freight lines that exist within an infrastructure of a city. As a course of action on the site, the site was viewed as an extension and connection of these infrastructures to a site removed from these influences. The building form begins to respond to trajectories of truck routes that enter the site. The form is bent to provide an axis in which pedestrians and truck routes exist upon. Program elements are aligned along this axis and allow circulation on the long side of the building. Along this axis, a surface emerges which begins to pull off the ground and become a screen on the building. This screen provides a layer of shading for the facade and begins to create public space through canopies around the building. The screen facilitates the creation of space, circulation, programmatic, elements, and emphasizes trajectory of routes through a gestural but space-making means.

COMPUTATIONAL DANCE


COMPUTATIONAL DANCE Through the medium of dance, I explored how a time-based medium could be implemented into architectural design as an interactive and dynamic component. This research will facilitate discovery of how interactivity can be incorporated into architecture, to create a dynamism that does not exist within an existing typology, to create a time-based architecture. In order to understand this topic more thoroughly, studies of notation of movement were implemented in order to break movement down into consistent parameters. The products of this research explore how these notations could start to hint towards an architectural product through mediums of photography, digital modeling and movement tracking. This is an ongoing research endeavor as part of my honors thesis presentation. Honors Thesis

LIVING ON THE GROUND


LIVING ON THE GROUND How might evolutionary and conflicting behaviors in the city inform innovative and ecologically sensitive design? Investigating the behavior of urbanism in the city of Seoul offers an extremely stratified and adaptive urban landscape. This urban fabric is often expressed through physical separation and historical isolation; for example the urban spectacles of Seoul Station and Namdaemun. Through decoding the inherent behavior, implanted artifacts exaggerate stratification while a new landscape creates ripple effects over time. This work attempts to regenerate such disruptions and project an ever-evolving ecosystem not only of Namdaemun Market but throughout the extents of Seoul megalopolis PUBLICATION Seoul Studio 2017 EXHIBITIONS Seoul Biennale of Architecture & Urbanism International Studios Symposium UNC Charlotte School of Architecture International Studios Exhibition
