THE MASONIC LODGE REIMAGINED SPRING 2016 This program required the invention of an exclusive society based in an abandoned three-story building that provided a private gathering space for the society on the second and third floors, as well as a public restaurant on the first floor. My concept surrounded a society rooted in health and wellness by employing the elements of water and earth as datum lines within the design. The constant return to natural elements fosters an environment of peaceful relaxation and healthy living.


PRELIMINARY SKETCHES

This parti is based on the “living wall,� which serves as a datum for this design. With a society rooted in individual and community growth, the building produces its own food from the living wall and roof garden, which supply the juice bar downstairs, fostering a sense of community.

This parti is a distortion of the yoga pose, warrior, and the floor plan is a geometric interpretation informed by the position of the human limbs and core in this stance. From these arrangements the rooms developed, grounding the society and design to an awareness of mind and body.

This parti evolves from the central triangle, which houses a community garden, providing a direct relationship with the sun through its open roof. Building circulation follows the triangle, allowing for a constant connection to nature and the theme of growth as one moves higher through the building.

APARTMENT FOR REFUGEE FAMILY FALL 2016 With the global refugee crisis reaching a height in 2016, we were asked to convert an abandoned floor of a masonic lodge in Columbus, Indiana into a home for a displaced refugee family. The program required private spaces for the smaller nuclear families in addition to public gathering spaces for the entire extended family. The high ceilings afforded the creation of a lofted system above private dwellings that overlook the shared kitchen space and outdoor patio.

BARCELONA SUMMER 2016 This work was produced during a three-week period in Barcelona, Spain. After researching the seaside neighborhood of Barceloneta and gathering an abbreviated conception of the culture of the area, I determined an under utilized public space and sought to reinvigorate the location with the surrounding inspiration. In an effort to bring green space to a previously barren expanse between a market and playground, I employed the lines of the existing market structure and extended them through the elevation of the installation. The result is a sunken grass gathering space for the community.

CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION FALL 2016 Over an eight-week period in an effort to understand the process of reading and creating construction documents, I created a full set for a home that was assigned in class. These documents include foundation plans, sections, elevations, and detailing of cabinetry and stairs. This documentation was followed up with an eight-week course on codes, which further bolstered my understanding of construction documentation.

PHANOMEN DESIGN SUMMER 2016 This past summer I interned for Phänomen, an interior design firm based in Indianapolis. I was asked to serve as the liaison between the company and the owners of the Kilroy’s Bar Franchise in Bloomington, Indiana. I was tasked with providing measured drawings of each of their three bars, assisting on material selection with the clients, and overseeing the installation process through the summer and beginning of the 2016 school semester. In addition, I created renderings of the bars to help the clients better visualize the future spaces.

THE CHILDREN’S MUSEUM OF INDIANAPOLIS SUMMER 2015 In the summer of 2015 I was an exhibit design intern at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. During my time there I assisted in the renovation of one of the museum’s permanent galleries, ScienceWorks.™ The purpose of the gallery is to present science to the public in an engaging and understandable way. In the early design phases I measured the space and created a white scale model to reflect the future design.

COLOR STUDY SPRING 2014 These works illustrate the exploration of color and their relationships to one another. After creating eight ink pigments four are layered together to create two squares. These layers afford the creation of four new colors in each of the corners providing the composition with sixteen distinct colors, which originate from the original eight.


URBAN LEGENDS SPRING 2014 After researching contemporary branding methods within various media outlets, we were instructed to create a collage highlighting common phrases or words that appeared most commonly. Once complete we transferred the collage to our silk screens, which resulted in these compositions.
