12 LAYER CAKE MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT VANCOUVER, CANADA
12 LAYER CAKE MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT Location: Vancouver, British Columbia Advisor: Ana de Brea Term: Spring 2016 Designed in Collaboration with Natalie Broton 1st Place MKM Sponsored Steel Tall Building Competition The design challenge in this project centered around defining and designing for the needs of a mixed-use development in an urban center. Focusing on the concept of live, work, play this building is intended to explore the relationship between “sweets” or desserts and architecture. One intriguing aspect of sweets is the idea that even though desserts are not a necessary component in a healthy diet, they are universal in virtually every society and generally desired by all. Due to this universality, aspects and qualities of sweets were analyzed to help inform and develop the form, materials and program of our building. This development proposal provides employment and residences for those who otherwise would not have the opportunity while simultaneously addressing the lack of low income housing in Vancouver. Collaborative project with Natalie Broton in which the design, representation, and modelling was equally distributed.

CELEBRATORY TREAT A large component of desserts is that they are often featured as part of a celebration, so similarly this building is expressively celebratory of downtown Vancouver with the inclusion of commercial spaces that engage the culturally rich location and appeal to a fincially universal demographic Pla diu ce m

SOFT ON THE INSIDE A quality common in many sweets, particularly in pastries and candies, is that they are often hard on the exterior but reveal a soft, gooey interior. This project reflects this logic through the design of a hard, twisted envelop which informs a series of softer, curvilinear forms hidden inside. These interior objects the space between them and the exterior envelop, serve as the definitions and boundaries for programatic functions. 10 11

EYE CANDY Desserts, in order to announce their presence and appeal, often contain bright colorations to engage the visual senses. This quality of sweets helped influence the buildings design, as this was used as an oppurtunity to disrupt the dreary climate and monotony of downtown Vancouver with a visual â€œtreatâ€? by incorporating vibrant and decadent materials in tandem with a distinctive architectural form. 12 13
WEIRD AESTHETICS OBJECT DEVIATION 2D AND 3D GLITCHING
WEIRD AESTHETICS OBJECT DEVIATION Advisor: James Kerestes Term: Spring 2016 Displayed at Muncie Makes as a component of Flim Flam Exhibit In this seminar project, architectural conventions and standard ideas of architectural form finding were addressed and questioned through the process of deviation and ruination. Throughout the project, both primitive and recognizable objects were deviated to better understand inherent logics within the objectsâ€™ coding. In addition to examining the ruination of three dimensional objects, digital images were deviated in order to investigate conventional architectural rendering techniques and styles. This process included the use of pixel-sorting codes to better understand and modify images.
DEVIATED SPHERE PRINT For the deviation of three dimensional objects, a primitive sphere was deviated using a simple word processing app in order to modify its coding. The goal of this modifications was to find the logics within the coding and, after numerous repetitions, begin to breed and recreate qualities through the code manipulations. The glitched objects began to become interesting as the origins of the object became unclear or entirely unreadable. Though ruination and deviation can have unintended consequences and qualities, once analyzed these logics can be modified and replicated to assist in architectural processes. 18 19
FOLDED LOGIC BATHHOUSE AND POOLSCAPE MUNCIE, IN
FOLDED LOGIC BATHHOUSE AND POOLSCAPE Location: Muncie, IN Advisor: Ana de Brea Term: Spring 2016 This project focused on the design and creation of a small bathhouse and calming poolscape environment directly outside the city of Muncie. Spatial programs required restrooms and showers as well as a place to store pool equipment. The primary design solution related to questions of continuous material and form topology to achieve a uniform aeshetic between seperate programatic functions. Upon entering the intial structure, the two distinct folds enclose a covered picnic area and a locker storage area. Private restrooms and showers reside in the following folds and pool equipment storage is located in the final folded structure. The pool itself is shaped in modular strips that relate to the width of the bathhouse and are used to create alcoves and niches for reflection.
PROGRAMATIC FOLDS Programatically, the primary structure was divided into two distinct but visually similar forms in order to house gendered change rooms and showers as well as to provide other programatic elements

HUMAN SCALE FOLDS The continous topologic surface, in addition to providing a sense of enclosure and shelter, begins to serve functional needs at a human scale. Under the initial covered entrance, smaller folds are utilized to serve as a series of storage lockers and a pair of picnic tables. In addition to this, the interior of the restrooms reflects the continuous folded rationale using a series of folds to divide change stalls and function as sink counters. Surrounding the pool, built-in seating also retains the topological and material logic of the primary structures. 24 25
KITBASH OBJECT COMPOSITION STUDY OBJECT ORIENTED ONTOLOGY
KITBASH OBJECT COMPOSITION STUDY Advisor: James Kerestes Term: Fall 2015 Influenced by the philosophy of Object Oriented Ontology, this project questions the concept of object to object and parts to whole relationships. In this introduction to the Object Strange studio project, the design centered on the idea of symmetery while creating of moments of asymmetry within a balanced composition. When viewed from the front, the object appears symmetrical, but upon viewed from the opposing angle, specific objects disrupt harmony and draw the eye from the focal central axis. Due to the complexity of the autonomous components, the composition encourages analysis of the individual objects as well as the viewing of their relations to the larger context.
USER INFLUENCED PERSONALITY The compositition, due to the variety of autonomous objects, takes on a variety of aesthetic values depending on the viewerâ€™s angle. The composition takes on a seeming personality, whether malicious or passive, which varies on specific lighting and viewer location. This quality, coupled with the complexity of invidual objects, works to create a dynamic composition which relies on the viewerâ€™s inputs.
FOREIGN ASSIMILATION HOMELESS SHELTER MUNCIE, IN
FOREIGN MOVEMENT One notable feature of the individual homes is a two large covers operating on a track system. These covers are utilized for a variety of functions including controlled daylighting and solar gains, semi-enclosed indoor-outdoor spaces, and the creation of visually secure spaces as a sense of privacy is paramount for the transitional homeless population.
FOREIGN ASSIMILATION HOMELESS SHELTER Location: Muncie, IN Advisor: Kevin Klinger Term: Fall 2016 Finalist Cripe Tiny Home Competition The design challenge in this project centered around providing four tiny homes for single homeless parents that are attempting to transition back into society. In addition to proving a number of homes, the project brief asked for the creation of a shared community block for a number of basic community needs such as laundry, physical activity rooms, and a large gathering space. The community center is located to the north of the site to block access to a busy intersection while the homes are oriented towards the residential neighborhood with views towards the interior community. The site provides a number of informal gathering places, both interior and exterior in order to services for the homeless living within the neighborhood and in the tiny homes.
FOREIGN FORM The lack of shelter is entirely foreign to our nature as humans and yet homelessness or lack of proper shelter is largerly accepted in todayâ€™s culture. This project seeks to architectural represent and examine the contradictoray relationship between our desire as humans for basic shelter and our lack of proper care at a societal level. In this scheme, these two differences are compared and unified through a variety of architectural elements such as form, material, and space. These ideas are then merged with conventional architectural ideas and the unique needs of a homeless population to create a sense of security and safety for those transitioning from homelessness. 34 35
OCTOBER COUNTRY CINEMA AND ARCHITECTURE HORROR CINEMATIC SOUND STUDY
Advisor: Enrique Ramirez Term: Spring 2016 In this seminar, horror and science fiction films were used as a medium to examine concepts within architectural theory and history. Films were critiqued and analyzed to establish the role that architecture, visuals, and sound have within the cinematic experience. Iconic scenes were examined to understand how architecture and architectural elements contribute to the cinematic narrative as well as the visual framing of scenes. The class also emphasized a critical analysis of the ae sthetics and representation within the specific film genre to enhance design sensibilites and question ideas of architectural conventions. Personal projects in this seminar included an analysis of the role of architecture in Ex Machina, particularly the role of glass and reflections as a motif of self-examination, and the role that sound plays in horror films, particulary in The Babadook. In the latter project, architectural form was given to the background sound in numerous scenes of The Babadook.
BLEND RESIDENTIAL RETREAT NORWAY
BLEND RESIDENTIAL RETREAT Location: Norway Advisor: Kevin Klinger Term: Fall 2016 Addressing the classic question of form or function, this project offers a solution in which the functional geometry at a human scale transitions seamlessly into the generalized form; effectively unifying form and function. Designed as a secluded residential house in Norway, this building follows conventional distribution of spaces along a central light corridor as the spaces transition from the public spaces such as the living room and the kitchen to the more private bedroom and restroom. Using traditional ideas of light in Scandinavian countries, a material palette of light concrete and warm wood was chosen in order to enhance the quality of light for the majority of the year.
ENVIRONMENTAL OPERABILITY This residence, in order to address environmental concerns, uses an operable track system in the central corridor as well as a rotating wall for passive ventilation. In addition to this, the building remains low to the landscape, with a basement that effectively burrows, to take advantage of more consistent ground temperatures. 40 41

DELAMINATING FORM TO FUNCTION Usable components of the house such as countertops, seating, and stairs delaminate and peel away from the exterior form in order to unify the functionality with the formal gesture. These delamination begin to inform material changes as the form transitions from a cool neutral concrete to a warm wood. This change in materiality encourages movement to and action in the areas of warmth and comfort refocusing the attention of the form to the human realm. 44 45
In this personal project, I looked at creating a small scale functional object in order to better familiarize myself with computer softwares and fabrication processes. When developing the curvilinear forms and composition, I was intrigued and interested in creating a sense of ordered chaos to contrast with the rigid structure of the stacked books. Furthering earlier concepts of object deviation, the curvilinear forms were modified and formed from a base dodecahedron. The interweaving between the curvilinear forms acts to give an individual identity and character to the objects while maintaining a comprehensive composition. Conforming to the traditional typology of bookends in which the base and vertical stands are emphasized, the objects transition between the two in a nonlinear fashion. Further addressing the traditional bookend form, the objects have a definative sense of direction as they taper from a larger base, accented with a richer color.
FRACTURE HARDWOOD MUSEUM AND LUMBER MILL MARTINSVILLE, IN
FRACTURE HARDWOOD MUSEUM AND LUMBER MILL Location: Martinsville, IN Advisor: Antonieta Angulo Term: Spring 2015 IHLA Competition Honorable Mention The purpose of this competition was the design of a building complex that celebrated the production and potential uses for hardwood lumber as a building material. The program required the construction of a lumber mill for on site employee training in addition to a museum, exhibition, and an outdoor amphitheater. This program also called for an intimate connection to the surrounding site with a managed forestry component and forestry pavillions to encourage visitors to commune with and experience nature. With a heavy emphasis on spatial planning, this project focused on the relationship between a variety the seperate compnents while maintaining a cohesive aesthetic and image.

CONFORM TO LANDSCAPE The overall footprint of the building was developed in order to conform to the existing forest on the site as well as to create distinct buildings for the differing programs. The footprint and form of the building was also developed to complement the sloping nature of the site; encouraging movement towards the siteâ€™s natural overlooks.

SHATTER The form and other building elements were designed to represent and reflect the constant fracturing of wood in the production of finished hardwood lumber. Glass “cuts” were then added for natural daylight and to allow for a visual connection to the surrounding forest. The complex’s non-uniform roof line was tapered and shaped to reflect the undulation treetops located around the site. 52 53
OBJECT STRANGE ART GALLERY
FORT WAYNE, IN

FIELD OF OBJECTS Site conditions, both physical and cultural, began to act as a force manifesting itself as physical impacts working to push and pull the objects. The ground, treated as another of many objects, was distorted and impacted to create topography that helped nestle the proposed building.
OBJECT STRANGE ART GALLERY Location: Fort Wayne Advisor: James Kerestes Term: Fall 2015 Developed from the design philosophy of Object Oriented Ontology, this project focused on the composition of autonomous objects in which both the whole and the part are legible. Designed primarily through examining the interstitial space from the overlap of impacted objects, this program focused on thresholds and a critical examination of spatial typologies. Originally developed from the impact of primitive dodecahedrons, the design was intended to sculpturally express both the fluid and solid nature expressed by glass, particularly in its shaping and production. Utilizing the inherent divisions between objects, opportunities were created to express changes and divisions between floor plates, materials, and programatic functions. Gradients between transparent glass and aluminum panels was chosen to highlight the interaction between the autonomous objects. Throughout the building, larger objects are divided into both public and private galleries of varying size, community art classrooms, and a glass blowing hotshop.
60 61 TRANSITIONS Similarly to the material changes on the exterior, impacts between objects lead to material and programmatic changes on the interior. The interstitial spaces between the objects act as occupiable spaces such as the primary atrium and other public spaces. The movement between objects, in addition to encouraging material transitions, manifests in level changes and denote changes in programmatic usage.

EXTENSION MIXED-USE TOWNHOUSE SANTA FE, NM
EXTENSION MIXED-USE TOWNHOUSE Location: Santa Fe, NM Advisor: Dan Woodfin Term: Fall 2014 Designed as a mixed-use building in a dense urban setting, this project focused on spatial planning on a narrow site. This building program demanded a focus on public and private relationships with a small private music studio occupying a portion of the first floor while residents live primarily on the second and third floors. Designed as part of a street redevelopment scheme, designing for privacy between individual residential units was a primary consideration as well as considering the relation between the commercial space located on the first floor.
EXTERIOR LIVING Due to the nature of New Mexicoâ€™s environment, this project required careful consideration of passive ventilation and environmental conditions. In order to respond to the need for passive ventilation, the majority of the building contains operable elements that encourage an intimate relationship between the interior and exterior.
66 67 OCCUPIABLE EXTENSION Due to the narrow nature of the site, there was a primary focus on extending occupiable space through the use of terraces and patio. These patios, in reference to protecting privacy from the adjacent buildings, were visually seperated using lightweight metal walls.
