FLAT PACK MODEL Guide Fold Cut

This charette involved spatial and materialistic constraints. Using a single sheet of paper and simple cutting and folding, I designed a space for four to dine.

If viewed from one side only the people are seen, and in contrast, if viewed from the opposite side, only the food. Lighting also played a strong role in the design, as it was used to highlight the food in the center of the table

An exploration into the art of detail and Construction Documents


SUSTAINABLE MARKET Buffalo, NY The featured design is for a market and theater space in downtown Buffalo, New York which takes into consideration sustainable design and the varying climate. The building and site are designed so that the South-East morning and mid-day sun angles will brighten the vendor spaces because it is the featured area in the building during that part of the day. The interior commercial space is lit with ambient light throughout the day, and artificial lighting in the evening. Runoff is directed off of the curved roofs towards channels along the interior which feed directly into a mechanism that produces a sheet of ice to form a screen. Additional runoff is collected via drainage channels and a pool at ground level is used to source an on-site irrigation system.

TOKYO DESIGN CHARETTES

House of Cats & Clothes

Energizing Tokyo

Tokyo is a dense metropolis, with intertwining infrastructures and a high need for energy. By occupying discarded spacesthroughout the city with architecturalstructures which harness natural resources to produce energy, we could potentially generate enough energy to run the CONCEPT Tokyo Metro.

The concept is based on a cat scratching post, with a central structure and multiple “floating� platforms. The client is a clothing designer who is passionate about her nine cats and wants the home to be as much theirs as it is hers.
