The Culinary

Institute

Senior Design Studio Mixed Use / Culinary School Fall 2019 The Culinary Institute is a mixed use housing complex, as well as a culinary school for young adults. Located in Forrest Hills, Queens. The institute gives an opportunity for young adults to start their academic and professional careers in the Culinary Arts. This mixed use housing complex has 29 units varying from single studio units to 6 bedroom tower units. The first two stories of commercial space contain restaurants, giving students the opportunity to utilize their skills and gain experience in their desired field of study. This culinary institute is the start to their up and coming careers as young professionals. My responsibility in this design project involved the development of digital and physical models, floor plans, renders, and photography. I collaboratively worked on conceptual ideas with my partner to create an urban hub for educational and career oriented success.

Spline Junior Design Studio Boat

A

Fall 2018 Located in Gallagher Beach, Buffalo, NY, a competition was held amongst each team to design, build and race a functional boat. My team, Spline is a boat that models the anatomy of a whale and tuna carcass. Using the carcass as a structural model allowed for an optimized design development of this boat. The design challenge was to investigate what defines skin and structure, which resulted in the final design. Having its design closely related to fish anatomy, it optimizes this visual aesthetic, highlighting its natural qualities of strength, durability, and structural organization. The responsibility I was tasked with in this project was to assist in the research, design, and construction of this boat. My responsibilities included precedent research, fabrication, and photography. Through group effort, we were able to showcase a unique design reflects fish and human anatomy.

Nest Junior Design Studio Wooden Vessel Fall 2018 Nest is a floating fish restaurant located in Lockport Canal, Buffalo, NY. The restaurant is sited in the water to house fish for the occupants to catch their own meals. The program of this wooden vessel exemplifies the anatomy of a Tuna, following the narrative of spacial organization. Occupants would enter at the tail, catch their meal in the belly, and feast at the head or final end of the structure. In conjunction, the anatomy of the Tuna creates an inherent structural precedent, giving Nest an ideal form. In this project, my responsibility involved the development of hand sketches, digital and physical models, plans, sections, and photographs. Using the anatomy of a Tuna as a precedent, allowed my partner and I to create conceptual design ideas that give this project a clear narrative for its functional and aesthetic use.

Conibear Shellhouse Construction Technology Spring 2019 In the Construction Technology course, I was assigned to study various built works, with this one being the Conibear Shellhouse by Miller Hull, located in Seattle, Washington. Students were asked to read through multiple construction document sets and create an axonometric drawing, replicating a particular section of the building to scale.

Guaranty Building Academic Research Building Restoration Fall 2019 Academic research is based on restorations of the Guaranty Building, located in Buffalo, NY. Research investigates the Terra-Cotta tile facade, including construction methods. Adjunct professor and architect Ludovico Centis, Banham recipient, teaches the methods in which Reyner Banham, renowned architect critic, investigates a buildings material make up and theoretical narrative. Professor: Ludovico Centis Researcher: Kevin Medina

Vitality Freshman Design Studio Warming Pavilion Spring 2017 Vitality is a warming pavilion that is located in Silo City, Buffalo, NY. It is a three wall structure consisting of wooden dowels, wedges, and studs, with various view ports that filtrate light, and wind. It has three focus views on existing structures, grain silos, and a tree at the center of the site, which acts as the main focal point. Using the tree as the main focus creates a narrative for revival and re-purposing of the site. This aims to give the surrounding environment continuous life and energy. The responsibility I had within this project was to assist in the conceptual, technical drawing, and construction aspects. My responsibilities consisted of a hand rendering, rhino modeling, plan drawing, photography, assistance to fabrication and construction completion. Through team collaboration, we were able to build a project that, will evoke the narrative for revival and re-purposing, and give the site a greater meaning.
