My thesis for this housing project was to design a building which could look within itself. This was developed based on a series of studies on Case Study House 21 by Pierre Koenig. The variances in the depth of field and spatial penetrations within the house have been the driving factors for the development of this project. 4


SUNSPACES collects heat and stores in within the inherent thermal massing of my scheme this heat is retained and released throughout the day to maintain temperature

REFLECTIVE GLAZING takes light from the highest layer of the building and brings it down into shaded courtyards and brings light into windows that normally would not recieve sun

S(around)OUND This is a Production Installation and Performance (PIP) project which took place in the iconic Troy Gasholder Building. The thesis for this project was to design a performance piece which would engage the audience allowing them to participate and further define each night’s show. This was done in collaboration with The World Renowned Violinist Todd Reynolds and the Arts Department of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. There were three types of spaces that are integrated together, each with a specific role to the overall design and performance.

The River Center Library This project was a proposal for a library in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The design is based on the logic of reserved stacks versus unreserved stacks and how the separation of the two speaks towards a set of programmatic spaces for the users.
