Lighting The card lamp uses a single recyclable material (playing cards) to create its form and uses only one type of physical connector (staples). It can also be used as a chandelier. The wall mounted terrace fixture creates soft, diffuse light. It uses geometric tiling as decoration as its levels step down, culminating in a series of glowing plexiglass fins.

P. Adams Clinic A free clinic and nutrition education center located in Philadelphia’s Allegheny West and sponsored by the Patch Adams group. It consists of two wings, separated by a site-wide pedestrian axis, with varying programmatic zones that are “plugged in” to centralized communal spaces. Outdoor space is used for community gardens, greenhouses, and a small orchard.

Studyscape A 3-piece set of library furniture modules is used to create wooden landscapes that function as distinct study areas. The pieces include a private computer space with shelving, a small work desk, and casual seating for light reading. Their shape represents the “cycle of knowledge,� where users examine existing works, develop their own ideas, and create for the digital world.

Plan for TCNJ A revised master plan for the College of New Jersey that uses a system of stormwater paths and features to revitalize main axes of travel on campus and reconnect students with the natural beauty of the area. Students are pushed towards the edges of campus where they are reacquainted with the two man-made lakes, Ceva (North) and Sylva (East).

S.T.E.M. Center A center for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics whose position on the northern edge of campus serves as a revitalizer to TCNJ’s north/ south axis of travel. Rigidly programmed laborartory spaces are pushed to the building’s edge and relate to the campus’s strict georgian colonial style. Flexible classroom spaces border a terraced courtyard that steps down to reconnect with Lake Ceva.

C.R.O.P. C.R.O.P. is a group proposal for a repeatable observation point that can be placed in various areas of the Guanacaste National Park in Costa Rica. It’s primary material, bamboo, can easily be manipulated into a modular structure that is also representative of the country’s natural vernacular. Besides the implementation of custom steel footing connections designed by our team, this project is connected entirely through various lashing techniques. This method allowed us to reduce costs as well as create a consistent and natural aesthetic.

THE COSTA RICA OBSERVATION POINT IS DESIGNED AS A PROTOTYPE FOR INTERVENTIONS WITHIN GUANACASTE NATIONAL PARK. CROP SERVES PRIMARILY AS A SUNSHADE AND RESTING PLACE FOR VISITORS IN GUANACASTE NATIONAL PARK. BUNDLED COLUMNS SPLAY FROM EACH FOOTING AND EXTEND UPWARDS TO SUPPORT THE FLOOR AND ROOF STRUCTURE.

THE DESIGN OF THE STRUCTURE IS FOCUSED AROUND BAMBOO, A VAST NATURAL RESOURCE IN COSTA RICA. BAMBOO CAN BE EASILY JOINED INTO PRE-FABRICATED COMPONENTS AND INSTALLED FOR MODULAR BUILDING.

THE MAIN MATERIALS USED IN CROP CONSIST OF BAMBOO, ROPE, METAL ROOFING, AND CONCRETE FOOTINGS. TO PROTECT THE INTEGRITY OF THE BAMBOO’S STRENGTH, LASHINGS ARE USED TO JOIN THE BAMBOO TO OTHER BAMBOO MEMBERS, STEEL MEMBERS, AND THE ROOFING. THIS TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION ALLOWS FOR FEWER TOOLS AND LESS PRECISE MEASUREMENTS, A CRUCIAL BENEFIT FOR IMPLEMENTATION ON SITE IN GUANCASTE NATIONAL PARK.
