Sound Mapping of Site


Downtown Boston Music Center

Sound Park


Fall Semester 2012 Collaborator: Bryan Mock Advisor: Patrick Rhodes As a center for music, the DBMC has been designed for sound throughout the site. The exterior site is a sound park that works with ambient noise, creating music, and filtering sound. Elements of sound permeate every aspect of the design, including site design, programming, and the facades. The DBMC includes a main concert hall, an experimental concert hall, a cafe, and support facilities.

Local Art Exhibit


Fall Semester 2011 Collaborator: Sarah Bruketta Advisor: LaDan Omidvar The Columbus Museum of Architecture, Art, and Industrial Design in Columbus, Indiana focuses on the history, present, and future of the city. Several main connections were found to exist on, through, and around the site. These connections helped to guide and shape the design of the museum.

Via dei Fori Imperiali Study

Ancient Roman Fori

Public Speech Area and Path


Spring Semester 2012 Collaborators: Elissa Bruggeman, Patricia Spowart Advisor: Francesco Mancini

Private Listening Booth

Public Speech Space

Via dei Fori Imperiali disconnects ancient fori and modern neighborhoods. The project bridges this divide with a network of paths and programmatic spaces with the intent of revitalizing the area into a place for oral communication within the city. Listening and recording spaces are located throughout the site, as well as large group speaking areas. The project uses axes determined by the ancient fori. These fori are connected through the central Piazza of Peace where the Temple of Peace once stood.

Analytical Drawing Advisor: Francesco Mancini Medium: Charcoal on Spolvero Each drawing depicts a window frame and the view through it. The frame was drawn at three different times during one day. The focus is on the relationship between the frame and background, and light and shadow. The shadows create a different frame in each drawing.

Extension 4H Building- Ames, Iowa Advisor: Cameron Campbell A semester long study of the Extension 4H Building examined exterior and interior conditions, as well daylight and twilight. Documenting the materiality of the building proved to be a fascinating focus throughout the study.

Changimals

Changimals Choose your animal, create your Changimal!

Changimals are made of 5 different toys. Each animal has 3 different parts that can be switched to a different animal to make a brand new creation! D-S Productions


Toys! Studio 2013 Collaborator: Megan Smith Advisor: Mitchell Squire

Precedent: Eames Elephant Charles and Ray Eames Photo courtesy Eames Office

Changimals are a set of toys inspired by the Eames Elephant. Using simple, powerful lines the toys invoke the animal after which they are modeled. Each Changimal comes in multiple pieces that can be substituted on to a different Changimal. Children are free to make brand new creations, which encourages imagination. A video named “Changimals: Geoffey’s Journey” was created to capture the essence of the toys.
