Elevation

Grid Analysis

For this project I analyzed and represented a building using various methods. Assigned the Harris A. Smith Packaging Science Building in Clemson, I learned essential methods of drafting and representation.

Spring 2016 Capstone Project

2015-2017

I designed a temporary installation for the loggia in Lee Hall, the building for the School of Architecture at Clemson. It had to be moveable and afford for multiple uses, such as learning and playing. I derived the parti using the essential proportions of Lee Hall.

Solid-Void Model

Analytical Model

I studied and analyzed the Farnsworth House designed by Mies van der Rohe. After vast amounts of research, I drafted plans, elevations, sections, and experiential drawings, along with imagining its parti and creating models exploring different aspects of the monumental Modernist design.

How the Earth Touches the Sky Fall 2016 Capstone Project

14


2015-2017

For this project I was tasked to create a unique viewing space for hikers on a mountainous site. Using the ruled surface technique, I emphasized a vertical and a horizontal component. I focused on light and shadows and the way that a structure can elegantly interact with the site without altering it.

During the process of this project I had different partis and all were based in a unified structure. These eventually separated into two components which emphasized the verticality and horizontality while keeping the structure delicate.

Wireframe Model

Solid-Void Model

Digital Drawing

This exercise involved the use of the Boolean operation and its application to a 1 foot cube. Starting with a wireframe model and then creating a solid-void model as its derivation, I aimed to create a space with ample light and shadows while opening up the space and puncturing all six sides of the cube.

Plate Tectonics

Fall 2016 Exercise

20


2015-2017 This exercise involved perfecting the technique of paper folding. Through the creation of a folded plate structure, a column, a curved crease structure, and many study models, I was able to create objects with defined space, lines and shadows.

2015-2017 Digital Drawings

This exercise involved the mastering of the carpenter’s ellipse and the analog method of nails and string. I also digitally constructed designs using only ellipses, creating two contrasting designs that both focused on depth and dynamism.

2015-2017

This exercise involved the mastering of the ruled surface technique, a technique that I brought forward in the Capstone Project. Through digital, analog, and models I was able to create dynamic forms.
