TOM OTTERNESS STUDIO Play Sculptures for Middle East Airport - Bronze Seven large scale bronze play sculptures are to be installed in three active locations of a recently constructed airport. The design and fabrication of the sculptures are overseen by Tom Otterness Studio, and the initial processes of creating the large bronzes take place in the Brooklyn studio through a daily collaboration between designers and sculptors. The enlargement process used to create the amorphous forms is illustrated in the images below. First a digital scan is taken of a hand sculpted scale model. Then, in Rhino, the sculpture is scaled and profiles are cut through the important lines of the form. Finally, plot sheets are made of the profiles are given to the sculptors to erect. The profile framework is a guide for the sculptors to fill the void form with clay for an accurate enlargement of the original scale model. My work at this studio also included the editing of digital scans, installation and fabrication drawings, presentation and design drawings, model making, and other various tasks such as photography, cataloging, and framing.


SITU STUDIO - DESIGN/RESEARCH/FABRICATION “reOrder” - a site specific installation in the Great Hall of the Brooklyn Museum - Brooklyn, NY Interior Design Magazine Best of Year Award 2011 “ReOrder” is a reinterpretation of the classical order of the columns and space of the Great Hall in the Brooklyn Museum. Large fabric panels are hung and stretched around a plywood, steel, and rope system that is temporarily attached to the existing columns. LED light strips illuminate the columns from within and heat formed Corian seating is attached to the base of select columns. The installation creates dynamic and intimate spaces within the Great Hall in which exhibits and performances may take place. Designers used Rhino as a primary drawing program and as a fabrication tool. A time-lapse video of the installation process may be seen at http:// vimeo.com/20523628.


KLIMENT HALSBAND ARCHITECTS Zen Mountain Monastery Sangha House - Mt. Tremper, NY A Zen Buddhist Monastery in the Catskills wishes to expand their monastery with a Sangah House that acts as center for Zen arts and culture.

KLIMENT HALSBAND ARCHITECTS Gilman Hall Renovation - Johns Hopkins University - Baltimore, MD The research, organization and presentation of materials and furniture were included in my responsibilities for the Gilman Hall Renovation project. This involved communicating with materials and furniture vendors, creating furniture specifications and presentation boards for the client. My work on this project also included construction document revisions, presentation documents, and the organization of construction supervision documents and change orders. Autocad, Photoshop, and Microsoft Excel were the primary programs used.


SHINKENCHIKU RESIDENTIAL DESIGN COMPETITION 2009, Merit Award Relating Film and Architecture - A Cinematographers’ Live/Work Community in Knoxville, TN Created with Revit, Autocad, Adobe Premier, Photoshop and Illustrator The Cinematographers’ Live/Work Community is designed for artists in Knoxville, TN on the fringe of the downtown area. It is a conceptual project that describes the movement between private and public space as a cinematic experience. The architecture frames a series of spacial moments, very much like a sequence of frames in a film. Frames are incorporated in the architectural language with screens that deteriorate as the site progresses from private residential buildings to a public square that addresses a prominent intersection. The square is a space to exhibit work created in the live-work studios. Precedents for the project include Kurosawa’s film “Throne of Blood” and Hollywood courtyard housing.

ARCHITECTURE LEAGUE OF NEW YORK/SOCRATES SCULPTURE PARK - FOLLY COMPETITION Hollow Tree - A Folly at Socrates Sculpture Park (Created with Rhino, Photoshop and Indesign)

In the park, the dark branches of trees intertwine against a bright sky. The folly is intended to invert this experience. When inside the cone, which abstractly reflects the form of a decaying and hollow tree, the branches are made of sky and twist against a solid dark foreground. The void is then the solid and the solid the void, an inversion that creates an intimate perspective of the park from within. The cone rests at the base of an excavated spiral. Circling the cone as the path sinks into the ground brings the visitor’s attention inward. Gravel covers the pathway and the side walls are supported by fieldstone. The rough textures and warm colors of the stone and rusted steel, and the sound of gravel on the path brings awareness to one’s physical presence in the place. The primary structure of the folly is an armature of steel tubing. Several sheets of thin steel are bent to form the shape of the cone and tack welded to the armature. Prior to attachment, the branch pattern is cut by hand out of the steel sheets which remain unfinished and exposed to the weather. After the exhibition is finished the steel may be taken to a scrap metal recycling center, the excavated area filled in, and the stones and gravel dispersed throughout the park.
