ARCHAEOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS VILLA SAN MARCO

CASTELLAMMARE DI STABIA, ITALIA Nestled beneath the prodigious Monte Faito on the Bay of Naples, stands Villa San Marco. One of many maritime villas once used as vaction homes for the Roman elite, the villa was buried entirely by layers of lapilli in AD 79. The villa was then excavated and looted by the Bourbons in the 17th century, in which countless frescoes and statues were either stolen or damaged. Our team documented various rooms within the villa using sketches, photographs, EDM surveying equipment, and Lidar scans. The lidar, the most efďŹ cent surveying technology in today’s market, collects thousands of points that are then loaded into a digital model. We generated digital elevations of the villa walls by overlaying lidar, photographs, and EDM measurments and tracing them. The result produced a collection of measured drawings used in the most current documentation of the villa. In my investigation and work, I was particularly inerested in how the villa experienced different layers of time and how evidence in the villa challenged our ideas of Roman society.

STREET RESIDENCES

MULTI-USE HOUSING BALTIMORE MD

With a rich history and diverse body of people, the Mt. Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore has become the desired residence for families and milennials. Located only blocks away from the historic Washington Monument and Belvedere hotel the site offers its residents views of downtown, restaurants, retail, and idyllic brownstones. When designing an apartment for the site, I was inspired by the way that different groups of people and periods of architecture came together to create the identity of Mt. Vernon. I collaged some photos from the site as an excercise to test the relationship of different styles and matierals. My solution was to espouse the concepts behind my collages, bringing together the diverse people and architectural styles. Each apartment type is assigned a different material, creating an almost collaged facade.

PAPER STREETS

MYCOLOGY AT THE SUBURBAN SCALE

TAKOMA PARK, MD The town of Takoma Park is home to numerous streets that were once planned yet never actually built. These “paper streets”, underutilized and forgotten, hold promise for more creative solutions. Determined to breathe new life into these “paper streets”, I’ve reimagined one as a mushroom foraging park for Takoma Park’s residents. Morel mushrooms grow abundantly in the D.C. metro area because of the presence of Tulip Poplars, a species that helps catalyze mushroom growth. The foraging park allows residents to forage for fresh food within walking distance of their neighborhoods.

YOHACAN LIBRARY

NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURAL CENTER

FREDERICK, MD Once a significant civil war hospital town, the city of Frederick is home to countless museums celebrating its rich history. However, the city lacks recognition for its Native American history. Yohacan Library, a Native American cultural library, seeks to introduce Native American history and culture back into Frederick’s historic fabric. Yohacan, meaning house in Iroquois, alludes to the form of a traditional Iroquois longhouse while its pitched roof relates to Frederick’s colonial architecture. Readers have seating on its flanks much like the way sleeping and storage were arranged in longhouses. The glass facades also feature gabions containing traditional building materials such as branches and bark. YOHACAN GROUND FLOOR

PROCESS


CLASSICAL ADAPTATIONS INSPIRED BY THE ITALIAN RENAISSANCE After studying Palladian precedents and facades of the Italian Renaisssance, I was challenged with designing a room that embodied the principles of classical architecture; proportion, rhythm, and symmetry. The room follows a central axis terminating at the stage. The large scale and grandeur of the space was intended as a multi-use space for weddings, receptions, and similar events. Proportion and rhythm govern the design of the facades, and I explored iterations in solid/ void relationships. Symmetry manifests itself in both facade and plan as the central nave is anked by two arcaded spaces.
