Library 3rd Year

This library is located in the North Side in Pittsburgh, and becomes a component of the Carnegie Library system. The core idea in the architecture is transect. As shown in the diagram, the building is sectioned into a static strip and an active strip with an atrium separating them. Three transects span between the spaces both as connections and as destinations.

New Media Junction 4th Year A group project, the New Media Junction is located in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City, and strives to culture and serve the community through education. The architecture is separated into an educational front mass, a back mass focusing on performance, and a welcoming public plaza and ground floor, all connected by a large atrium rising through the core of the building.

The current path of the Via Trinitatis acts as four separate

Respect of the Environment Hydroponic growth is more sustainable than traditional growth. A new river piazza and introducing more green space by moving a portion of the Lungotevere below grade creates an ecological hub for hydroponic distribution.

At the end of my second year, the National Concrete Masonry Association hosted a competition requiring prominent use of concrete masonry units. The architecture I designed provides a cleansing experience through a system of interconnected pools and flowing water, stemming from two large water tanks over the roof. This project was awarded second place in the competition.

Hajjar Competition 3rd Year

This is a memorial competition with the site in local State College, PA. It calls for a residence for a book collector, and this home is for a collector of biographies. The architecture reflects the instability of everyday life through a precarious walkway, and a visually stirring singular column. This entry earned an honorable mention in the competition.

Sustainability Center 3rd Year Located in the Navy Yard in Philadelphia, PA, the sustainability center serves as an exhibit to inform the community and a place to teach children about sustainable architecture. The form of the building deflects cold winds and embraces warm winds that have been cooled over the river by utilizing green roof berms.

Garden Shed 1st Year

The garden shed was a collaborative effort of 15 architecture students executed as a design-build project. The shed was built along with 2 other structures to serve an on-campus community garden. The structure features chalkboard doors, locust post framing, and a majority of reclaimed lumber, including trex flooring.
