TABLE OF CONTENTS


PROFESSIONAL WORK A selec on of documents, marke ng images, and details created for a wide range of project types including government work, retail, educa onal buildings, and residen al projects.

MASTERS THESIS A prototype for how a cohousing development for ar sts in Northeast Minneapolis can help increase density within the exis ng fabric of residences and post-industrial buildings.

URBAN ISSUES DESIGN STUDIO Forging a link between the disparate districts within the Cedar Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, this design provides a common route and a clear path leading to the Mississippi River.

SOAP FACTORY DESIGN STUDIO Media ng between an exis ng masonry structure that is a composite of various industrial buildings and the addi on of an art gallery provides a rich material framework that drive this project.

STEREOTOMY DESIGN STUDIO Designing and fabrica ng in three dimensions simultaneously becomes an asset as this project proposes a picnic shelter in local Silverwood Park exclusively using stereotomy techniques.

PROFESSIONAL WORK


Construc on Detail - Autodesk Revit

Clear vision is the basis of good design, and the ability to accurately translate and represent that vision is a skill I have developed serving under several local architects. Serving as the base for communica on with the client and construc on documents for contractors, these works highlight the range of representa on used in the oďŹƒce.

Serial Plans of Cohousing Prototype

Typology Studies - Urban and Rural Cohousing Serving as a link between the local Arts Distric culture of Northeast Minneapolis and the nieghborhoods that surround the district, this cohousing development provides space for ar sts to live, work, and sell their cra . Residents live together in a new, more social form of urban cohousing, doubling the density on site while s ll maintaining the local expression of a residen al city block.

Daily Use Experience along Mississippi River Route

Forging a link between the current districts of the Cedar Riverside neighborhood in Minneapolis, this large scale urban project proposes a hybrid bike and pedestrian path. This path would provide a common, legible, and invi ng route from the various districts down to the Mississippi River, the site of a new urban park on the Bohemian Flats.

Art Gallery and Lobby Experience

SOAP FACTORY DESIGN STUDIO


Integra ng an exis ng post-industrial masonry building with a new program of art gallery and retail space provided a rich material framework that serves as the basis of the link between the two seemingly separate programs. The exis ng masonry walls extend and surround the new program spaces providing visual con nuity and legibility of program between the necessarily enclosed galleries and the light open social lobbies.


Serial Ruled Surfaces

Final Stereotomic Expression

STEREOTOMY DESIGN STUDIO


Pavilion Entry Experience The design of a park pavilion in SIlverwood Park is given weighty expression as local materials are combined to provide a pavilion that is both weighted in specific origins and open to the air and nature surrounding it. Using stereotomic principles, this stucture features individual members that are uniquely cut to form this dynamic structure. Ties and fi ngs are kept to a minimum, allowing the weight of the structure to provide structural support.
