Hello, my name is Nicole and I’m an architectural designer based in South Florida. I am interested in creating public spaces to strengthen the sense of community for the people. These spaces focus on how the fusion of narrative, urban design, and public needs can articulate interesting pedestrian experiences. I also enjoy graphic and industrial design. In my free time I am an avid reader and play beach volleyball.

SELECTED WORKS 2020-2021

Designed from an inside out strategy, P.R.E.I.N focuses on the community aspect of living. COVID-19 changed the way we lived, quarantine blocked us from society and our social interaction was near zero percent. P.R.E.I.N creates an atmosphere where one unit is divided into 5 components. Each component is an individual and is able to be rearranged according to family size. These components contain, produce, rejuvenate, energize, inhabit, and nourish pods. This reimagined aspect of living areas allows one to interact with more people when walking in between pods. Having a larger square footage of community space versus individual space emphasizes communal living.

The existing site is made of unconsumed land from neighboring sites, in order to transform the area we will highlight the living patterns of the natural life on the site, the burrowing owls and gopher tortoises. Using these patterns in comparison with flight patterns and aviation proportions from The Turbosupercharger, create relationships through time.

ARCHITECTURE

A project stationed in the bay of bangal where most of the worlds navel Architecture goes to die. Bangladesh has no Iron Ore. The cities built with the processed corpses of the most robust sea dwelling creatures. This project fantasizes a future in the past, in which a cataclysmic event isolated a number of ships in a small quadrant of the coast leading to theire destruction and rebuilding into utterly fantastic series of social spaces which celebrate the raw power of man with muthologic levels of creativity, GUided by our generative tools we make an attempt to blueprint the feel back loops and series of processes in developing a catalogue of potential spacial scenarios, carved broken and welded by the shanty-dwelling ship breakers.

By leveraging the hybrid outputs of semantic AI neural networks, this project reforms the spatial, economic, and cultural role of ship breaking in Chittagong, Bangladesh. A catalog of entropic matrial constructs was developed as a way to extract various AI topologies and apply them within the context of the ship breaking ecosytem. The drama of these constituent actors, however, plays out in a more urban setting. In arranging these loose formal fragments, there emerges a new type of condition; one that extends off the shore and occupies ships with the very matrials used for their contruction.
