THROUGHOUT THIS PORTFOLIO ONE WILL FIND THE EXPERIENCE I HAVE GAINED DURING MY TIME STUDYING AT HAROLD WASHINGTON COLLEGE. MY STUDIES IN ARCHITECTURE BEGAN AT HAROLD WASHINGTON WITH MY FIRST CLASS BEING HISTORY OF ARCHITECTURE. I HAD NEVER TAKEN AN ARCHITECTURE CLASS BEFORE. HOWEVER, BOTH THE PROFESSOR AND THE CONTENT OF THE CLASS LEFT ME IN AWE. INVOLVING MYSELF TO LEARN MORE WITH MY PEERS, I WAS INSPIRED TO START AN ARCHITECTURE CLUB. I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN BEYOND THE BOOKS AND EXPLORE SOME WELL KNOWN STRUCTURES. NEARLY THREE YEARS LATER I HAVE EARNED MY AAS IN ARCHITECTURAL DRAFTING. I ASPIRE TO CONTINUE MY EDUCATION AT IIT AND EARN MY BACHELORS DEGREE.

ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING II

THE DODECAHEDRON COMPARTMENT

This compartment was designed to to hold a scaled 3d cube, pyramid, and cone. The design of this container was influenced by one of the five platonic solids, the dodecahedron. The container was designed like a compartment with the ability to hold the three shapes. The outcome was a pentagon shaped vessel, with a rotating top, and with the capability to hold and carry three 3-d shapes.


ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING II

THE TWINE

The Twine’s chair objective was to design and build a fuctional sustainable chair made out of any paper product. The Twine was constructed out of double corrugated cardboard and scored into a cylander shape. The base was made out of four rhythmic pieces proportioned into a 20” diameter to mirror the circular seat. The seat is at a height of 1’-6”, it is fastened by interlacing strips of cardboard into the base. Altogether, corrugated cardboard was successfully used to design a sustainable chair prototype.


ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING III ARCHITECTURE 123

Course Description: Emphasis on developing skills in pictorial and perspective drawing and sketching, color, form, and presentation skills. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are a part of the course.

Course Objectives: • Reinforce line weight, line types, hidden lines, lettering and tonal values. • Further develop freehand drawing skills to complement their drafting skills. • Further development concept of plan, elevation and section. • Introduce basic model building skills for complex shapes. • Add color and shadows to perspective and presentation drawings. • Introduce problem solving techniques where students will have to come up with solutions that are both creative and technical and be able to write a design statement that reflects their solution. • Instruct students on how to use a portfolio to organize their work. • Introduce students to studio project critiques so they will become more comfortable presenting their work.

ANN ARBOR TRAIN STATION


ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING III

ANN ARBOR TRAIN STATION

These two coinciding structures, standing at 60ft will be located in Ann Arbor MI, along East and West of Broadway St. With a curved roof, this structure was designed to portray swift movement. The main design is composed of arrow figures integrated in the roof system. This design can be interpreted to show the movement of the trains that would be passing through the bottom of the building. The three platforms run under the building with escalator, elevator, and stair access to the first floor. At an elevation of 30ft, the first floor has three entrances on Broadway St. Along the sides of the structure is a curved opening allowing natural light onto the platform. Similarly as the elevations, the roof allows much sunlight. All in all this structure was designed to be a train station with an open environment.

CONCEPTS OF PLANNING

ANTHROPOMETRIC STUDY

In this first assigment an anthropometric study was done of the males and females of the classroom. With the averages we then measured the living spaces in our own homes. We went on to designing ideal living spaces.


CONCEPTS OF PLANNING

ROOM STUDIES


CONCEPTS OF PLANNING Standing at nearly 33 feet, this house was designed with the intention of open space. The design is modern and yet natural with the outer wood finish. With permission to have the total height exceed the height limitation, the walls go up at a five degree angle. The basement is designed for a separate private reunion while the first floor is open. Combining the kitchen, dining, and living room created the sense of togetherness and easy access. A stairwell stands from the basement up to the third floor. On the second floor the master bedroom and bathroom can be found along with three rooms, a bathroom, and laundry room. All bedrooms with access to private balconies. Finally, on the third floor there is an office and yoga room. The floors comes out to a garden with Southward lighting for best sunlight.

ARCHITECTURAL PLANNING ARCHITECTURE 266

Course Description: Application of planning concepts to basic architectural problems through development of selected design projects emphasizingrelation of form to function; project presentation will employ models and pictorial rendering techniques in various media; current architectural thought explored through examples of various building types. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course.

Course Objective : The course objective is to introduce students to Non-Residential Design. We will analyze the anthropomorphics of the human body & then establish the method for designing succinctly to those standards. We will address such typology-specific issues as occupancy group adjacency separation, structural design considerations and environmental advantages/disadvantages. Regulatory requirements, i.e. zoning & building codes, will be discussed & applied to the Plans, so we may analyze their impact. Finally, the students will write a program then design their idealized building into typical City of Chicago block. A Final Presentation will be required with emphasis on design, functionality & student’s ability to graphically and orally present their designs.

STREET ARCHITECTURE COMPETITION

In part of IDEAS CITY 2015, a competition for the design and construction of an outdoor structure, The Rotatinal Wave was designed to be transparent. Modeled and rendered in Revit, this structure consisting of two waved walls. These walls hold a series of panels that rotate in a center axis. This structure takes one through a passage, the panels can be rotated to allow different views on the street.

LAKEFRONT KIOSK COMPETITION

In part with the Chicago Architecture Biennial the Lakefront Kiosk Competition was an opportunity to design a kiosk with a commercial function. Located along the shoreline of Lake Michigan, this kiosk, Del Viento was inspired by the ‘Windy City’. This structure has ascending walls and roof with a glass storefront.


ARCHITECTURAL PLANNING

PRESIDENTIAL OBAMA LIBRARY

Modeled and rendered in Revit by my partner and I, this two floor building was influenced by the Koru’s spiral meaning a new beginning. With Washington Park as a perspective neighborhood, the Presidential Library would be located in between Prairie Ave and Martin Luther King Dr. Following the NARA Architectural and design Standards for Presidential Libraries, a program was put together as a group with suggested square footages to better design the room spaces.

COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN V ZEPPLIN PENDANT LIGHT

Original: Zeppelin Marcel Wanders

Taking the Zeppelin suspension lamp by Marcel Wanders as a model, this lamp was recreated in 3d Max. Each arm was modeled and arrayed. A webbing type of material was added with lighting in the crystal bowl sphere.


COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN V EXTERIOR 3D MAX RENDERING

Begining with a floor plan this exercise consisted of recreating a class room. Learing how to use the shapes and modifiers in 3D Max. Once modeled came the assigning of materials and the use og night and day time renderings.


COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN V EXTERIOR 3D MAX RENDERING

Importing a Revit house model in 3d Max, this was a project allowing the opportunity to learn about materials and lighting in 3d Max. Then taken into photoshop, entourage was added to give the scene life.


MULTI-MEDIA ART WORK

In these pieces of work, I was inspired to use different matetrials. Aside from the different lineweights I create with pencil and the pattern I can form with charcoal, I was also intrigued by materials such as glue and salt to add texture, color, and flavor to blank piece of paper.

MULTI-MEDIA ART WORK

Using india ink, water color pencils, alcohol based markers, salt, and liquid glue as a medium these abstract pieces are made to look like monsters.


MULTI-MEDIA ART WORK

In a mix of white and black charcol this piece is a replica of a piece of water with the sun’s rays lacing trough.

These sketches were made with the intention of reproducing original pictures to study form.
