professional_ Yangzhou Government Center master planning, space planning and conceptual proposal, Yangzhou The site of the Yangzhou government complex is the dividing line between the old Yangzhou city and the location of a new planned city. It is once piece of a master plan that includes culture, recreation, commercial and residential functions. A residential community sits adjacent to the government complex and was a conceptual motivator from the projects induction. The complex’s goal was to give back to the community a park, garden, commercial core and open spaces while extending its functional hours beyond the typical 9am to 5pm office hours of a government facility. The complex hosts a commercial plinth on the 1st and 2nd floor to cater to community life and protects an internal garden and park.


professional_ Yangzhou Government Center The garden was conceptualized as a striped landscape that both influences the architectural language and adheres to it. To emphasis the professional blue hues of the façade the landscape’s color spectrum concentrates on blues and greens of native, low water consumption plantings. The strips set up function areas and events as well as scales of intimacy as one moves through the space.

graduate_ Moma, New York’s vertical gallery The MoMA AIR is located in the Chelsea Arts District of New York City at 504 West 22nd St. As an annex to MoMA New York, the AIR is an Artist in Residency facility to foster young and emerging artists. Up to 18 artists would live and work in this facility and demand a wide variety of studio and gallery situations for infinite possibilities of medium. The AIR provides a unique potential for its participants because of the dense urban context and vibrant Chelsea district. Programmatic requirements of such a site yield a vertical gallery where participants experience from the top down, within a constricted building footprint.

Once on site it functions as a hotel, rotating in place to provide working, sleeping, and showering applications. Its goal is to provide an alternative to big-box franchise hotels that aim to please everyone in their design but consequently inspire no one.

Its technologies make it resilient to desert conditions without municipal power and water. It is a standalone oasis for desert catastrophes.

international studies_ Tianjin housing Destruction of traditional hutong housing and replacement with apartment towers is a widespread renewal approach throughout China as their urban populations swell. Located in a traditional housing area of Tianjin China, the objective of this proposal was to hold on to the traditional elements and scale of the beloved hutongs. Goals included a multi-use live-work community that reinforced the social integrity of old neighborhoods. Each unit incorporated a vertical courtyard for local agricultural production as well as a sun shading element for this south facing proposal. It offers a culturally inspired reinforcement to the concrete box in the sky approach of the modern Chinese city.


international studies_ winterschlafer Located on a garden lake in Hannover, Germany the Winterschlafer

is a transformable dock for swimming, fishing, and relaxing in the summertime. During the winter the unit collapses to ensure unobscured views from the garden cabins across the lake. Through a system of pulleys and pins one person can operate the canopies from their low resting position to their extended shading position.
