The following sample of work demonstrates what can be done when a collaboration amoung creativity, knowledge, and integrity is transformed into architecture.

Like most projects, this starts with a rectangular box that is transformed into two separate shapes that create two masses. These two masses are different in shape and interlock each other. The space between the two shapes becomes a system of ramps that create active flow within the project as a whole.

This project is oriented onto the site in order that the four main circulation intersections can be connected linearlly. By locating the design in the center, it becomes a functional link to all four intersections. This allows the project to have three accessible entrances.


The hub of the project consists of two asymmertical ramps that converge at a central platform, thus linking the three fundamental areas of the project, which are the two lower spaces at each end, and one upper space.

The program is a 10,000 SF bike station located within a nine block area of the northwest part of “The Loop” in Chicago. It contains not only storage for bikes but a cafe, retail space, bike rental, facilties, and a parking Chicago Bike Station garage. The form of the building began as a series of connecting trianigular tubes that conjoined to various parts of the site. The program is enclosed within four main tubes that contain the major functions for the station: storage; facilties; and commercial space. Within the two minor tubes, connects are made to four main tubes providing ample areas for trendy cafes and circulation space.

The key programs of the station are located within the four main tubes: commercial; and bike storage. The two smaller tubes that bridge both street sides together contain the connecting programs which are circulation and cafes. The garage is an substructure that folds and bends underneath the main structure.


Arial site view First floor

There are connections from three major access points to both main roads and to one back alley entrance. These points create the main four tubes of the building. Another one is bent to connect the two street tubes having a never ending, continuous conection within the site. The plan is designed to have the most interaction with the architecture and to increase the amount of exposure to the building.

the duration of the game. It does this by a series of folds that create areas of light, access, balconies, terraces, and an outlook. All of these folds are then applied to a loop that surrounds the field which is located adjacent to the road.

360 Double Helix Multi use tower

Helix A

Helix B

Double Helix

The concept behinf the project is two seprate towers, were one is private the other public. These two towers twist and wrap around each other creating a double helix shape with a central void. This void then allows a connection between the two seprate towers.


The program is seperated into two towers, one holds the private and the other holds the public program. This allows a seperation from the the noise and movemnt of each of the towers.

Lake Michigan is 1 of 5 large bodies of fresh water in the world, making the area a desirable place to live. A conventional pier is the connection and exchange between land and water circulation. This proposal is to derive maximum benefit from superimposing on the site elements of a neighborhood, in the most efficient manner to crate segregation and layout of program within each layer. This proposal connects the existing city with the lake to provide more residential, commercial and recreational space adjacent to the shoreline.


The project comprises a stacked morphology, so that it accommodates, zones of the major programmatic categories. This stacking, is not unlike the experience of a high-rise building, with its superimposed floors all capable of supporting different programmatic events, yet all contribute to a summation that is more than the accumulation of parts. While deploying different layers and organizations within each layer create a new stacked urbanism.
