M U LTIG E NERATIONAL R OWH OME Fall Quar ter 2018
Design of a multi-generational rowhome for the vacant lot on 16th & Christian Street in Philadelphia, PA. This lot is 17â€™x100â€™ and is across f rom an elementary school and a church. Precedent studies and research were conducted to create initial row home schemes, which include the removal of massing to create quality space and light, creating a linear separation of public and private spaces, and creating an active circulation that is seen throughout the home. This rowhome stretches the entire site length and utilizes a linear staircase.

L A KESID E PIER Fall Quar ter 2017
Through an unfolded elevation and a series of depth explorations, the topography of a pier was designed. Experience is created through three interventions through the topography. The f irst of these interventions is a shaded playground space, the second is an elevated viewing and seating element, and the third iteration utilizes a small dock which allowed interaction with the water and ability to watch those playing in the water. This pier is located on a lake and is intended for active and passive interactions.

TA PER AND SHI F T M A S SIN G Winter Quar ter 2019
Apply different operative words to cubes and adjust their form. In Rhino, show the progression of this operation in mass to form diagrams. Treat the f inal mass as a building, and design a hypothetical site based off the forces and operative words f rom the model. To see this building in the world, a chipboard model was laser cut with contours applying to the operative words. To learn Revit, the site was imported f rom Rhino and the model was given floor slabs and material walls. A sun study and schedule were created followed by a rendered perspective view f rom Revit and Photoshop.

THE N E I GH B OR HO OD EXC H AN GE Winter Quar ter 2018
Begin to understand what def ines a neighborhood by collecting urban artifacts. The neighborhood studied was Lancaster Avenue between 34th and 37th street. The artifacts collected included a crushed Arizona can, a Nars liquid lipstick, and a f ragmented piece of blue plastic. These artifacts influenced a f ramework model which lead to the f inal model and program. There is an empty plot in Lancaster Avenue for this project, meant to help the neighborhood. This repository includes a collection and display exchange gallery, a student center, and a green roof.

D IAG RAM ME D ENVELOPE Fall Quar ter 2018
Choose an iconic building in Philadelphia and study different elements of it. This is a study of the envelope and materiality of the Kimmel Center located on Broad Street. This project included analog, digital, and hybrid iterations of diagramming. The Kimmel Center was broken into four main groups: brickwork, wood geometries, marble, and glass. The small scale of this project allowed for abstract thinking and breaking down the parts f rom the whole.

THE N E I GH B OR HO OD H A B ITAT Winter Quar ter 2019
Design an apartment complex with public amenities to build up the Mantua neighborhood. Learn how neighborhoods are designed and what qualities create an engaged neighborhood. Washington Square West was studied and then overlayed onto Mantua to learn about their similarities and differences. Dosmasunoâ€™s 102 Housing Units served as a precedent study. The challenge was incorporating a large scale apartment into a sparse and small neighborhood, and not overshadowing the existing neighborhood qualities. Mass played a major role in the design and qualities of the apartment.
