San Francisco Urban Farm Fall 2018 Studio Instructor: Roddy Creedon

The project is a mixed-use urban building in San Francisco organized around the common subject of food. The site is on Franklin Street between Hickory Street and Oak Street, and lies at the nexus of Hayes Valley, Mid-Market, and Civic Center. These neighborhoods are local centers for food. The primary elements of the program include a large, flexible ground floor food market/hall/ community gathering space, a vertical urban farm using the Skygreens system, and commissary kitchens for local entrepreneurs to rent.

San Diego International Airport Baggage Claim Art Wall Summer 2017 | Hood Design Studio, Intern & Model Maker Design collaboration with Lan Ly (project manager) Responsibilities: Design development, model maker, 3D print specialist

The model below was created to be used in a design committee review with the project’s stakeholders. The baggage claim renovation utilizes 12 foot tall panels that join to create a 300 foot long glass art wall in the San Diego airport. The art displays hundreds of photographs of personal objects superimposed over abstracted x-rays of carry-on bags. To improve security for the area, a frosted translucent material was used.


Grinnell College | Public Art

Summer 2017 | Hood Design Studio, Design Intern & Model Maker Design collaboration with Lan Ly (project manager) Responsibilities: Design development, model maker, 3D print specialist

Grinnell College commissioned Hood Design to design a public park that incorporates four large sculptures. A giant Pegasus, a griffin, a winged wheel, and the Grinnell College logo were the pieces chosen to represent the city. These winged icons are prevalent in the surrounding built environment from the disused Mobile gas station across the street to the winged wheel that represents the history of manufacturing in the city. Images below show the design of the giant griffin and the proposed mesh walls that outline where historic buildings once stood. Rendered studies showing lighting possibilities for the sculpture

Sculptures are in relation to large mesh-like walls that are being designed for the park.


Siprosa School - Nairobi, Kenya

Summer 2016 | Sidell Pakravan Architects Collaborators: Julia Kleinberg, Rudabeh Pakravan, Kristen Sidell Responsibilities: Design development, renders

This design proposal for a school in Nairobi is in collaboration with Berkeley’s Golestan Education. Siprosa School aims to support underserved children in accessing education, teach environmental awareness, and promote science based education. The school is situated adjacent to Nairobi National Park, a preserve for Africa’s dwindling wildlife.

The local urban context informs the use of reused materials such as shigles, which are used as the building’s facade system to provide shade. To combat commonplace flooding during the wet season, the building is elevated and employs a bio-swale to drain water away from the site.


Los Angeles Sunnynook Park Fall 2015 Studio Instructor: Jay Atherton

This project challenges the relationship between the site and its digital manifestation, proposing that an imperfect digital interpretation can be utlilized in the discovery of formal and urban space-making solutions. An effort was made to digitally scan the site in Los Angeles using a remote control car equipped with four cameras.

By compiling images of the captured site, a new three dimensional formal language emerged that included both highly incorrect, and site exact, geometries. By exploiting the “trash geometries� as a generative tool, unexpected architectural solutions begin to emerge for the digitally scanned site. Large shaded public spaces, boat launches, and playground spaces are designed around these trash geometies, which are loosely connected by meandering paths.

Six interlocking vloumes are composed to create differing fontal and back conditions. The volumes were created from ruled curves ensuring the surfecses would all be developable (not double curved) and thus possible to contruct from bristol paper. The sectional model below features the void created from the arrangement and cropping of the six original volumes.

Emeryville Housing | Boom Town Fall 2012 Studio Instructor: Darell Fields 1500 Sherwin Avenue, Emeryville, 420,000 ft² Housing / Commercial / Regional athletics

The city of Emeryville is known for the large regional commercial centers that it hosts as well as its many pharmaceutical and entertainment companies, such as Bayer and PIXAR. The site, despite being adjacent to one of the largest shopping centers in the Bay Area, is surprisingly isolated because of train tracks on the west that block all automotive and pedestrian traffic.

The waste Native Americas produced over hundreds of years created numerous shellmounds on the shores of the Bay Area.

Eastern elevation

Emeryville’s shellmound constituted a small hill that was 60 feet high and over 300 feet long. The land was flattened for development.

After a manufacturing plant closed its operations at the site, the factory was demolished; however these former operations caused serious soil and groundwater contamination.

The task of removing the polluted layers creates a massive void of material, which allows the development of a sunken regional park that rises to street level.

Nested & Suspended Steel Cubes

Spring 2012 / Construction and materials course Instructor: Dana Buntrock Team: P. Hernandez, A. Lather, W. Mixter, M. Taberner, X. Wang Contributions: Design, steel fabrication, assembly

This installation provides an elevated platform capable of carrying over 450 lbs. Three steel cubes are suspended and kept in tension with steel cables. The platform is adaptive to the amount of weight one places on the mesh top. The steel mesh top is interlaced with the thicker cables; the greater the weight on the mesh the more rigid the structure’s behavior becomes. The cubes are welded together using L-profile steel and polished to a shine. A large turnbuckle, which connects all the cables in the core of the platform, makes it possible to tune the structure.


B.I.O.M.S. Elastomeric 3D Printing Research Contributions: Design and fabrication of 3D elastomer printing technology

The opportunities for rapid prototyping using elastomeric materials are currently quite limited and largely unexplored. The elastomeric 3D printing platform I designed and built is designed to use commercially available silicone canisters to take advantage of their affordability and their large print volume potential.

Prototype 1

300 ml Cartridge Extruder for 3D Printer

(Gray parts in exploded axonometric diagram are sourced)

This extruder is designed to use typical 300 ml silicone cartridges, which are typically used with caulking guns. The NEMA stepper motor can be connected to any open-source 3d printer, in this case, it is connected to a custom open source 3d printer. The extruding nozzle is mounted to the 3d printer’s x-axis carriage. Once the printer’s firmware is changed to accommodate the new settings, the extruder can be controlled by the 3d printer. The silicone cartridges need to be to be under considerable pressure before the silicone starts to extrude a consistent bead in the nozzle. Too much pressure can lead to the silicone escaping in the rear plunger area; as a result a safe printing speed can vary from 1 mm/sec to 10mm /sec before pressure is too high.

The Pore Wall was conceived as a facade system that promotes passive ventilation. It is made out of silicone and can potentially be used for water harvesting purposes. This is the first project that utilized BIOMS’ silicone printing capabilities in conjunction with a graduate level seminar, where the design of the wall was developed in a classwide collaboration. The Pore Wall was developed in the Elastomers and Nature Seminar (M.P. Gutierrez, UC Berkeley, Spring 2013), for which I served as a 3D printing instructor for the students.

This panel was designed as a installation piece for the 2013 Oslo Architecture Triennale. The entire panel is 3D printed and the twisted loops have been folded inward and stitched together to form a flexible and translucent tapestry that was inspired by the arrangement of animals’ scales. This design is permeable to light and wind, and its elasticity allows the panel to be easily manipulated into any form.

Thesis (in progress): Scanning Praxis Primary Advisor: Maria Paz Gutierrez Secondary Advisor: Kyle Steinfeld

A set of ideas to launch my thesis: 1) The quality of a measurement is dependent on the precision of the instrument. 2) Measurements are interpretations made from tools, and as a result are not absolute, often they are false 3) 3D scans have the potential to oscillate from accurate information, distorted data, to outright false data.

My thesis tackles the repercussions of 3D scanning technology because it allows for spaces to be measured with overwhelming detail. Privacy will become scarcer with the advent of self flying drone technology and architects must consider how their designs will interact with this new way of measurement.

The studies below show a limitation of scanning in relation to the materials used. Black does not scan well, gray is most accurate, and white produces the most holes in the data. The oblique drawings are 3D scans of identical physical models which have been painted with different tones.
