Architecture can change people’s entire outlook on an area for better or worse. I believe it is an architects duty to create enjoyable spaces for people to live, laugh and play. When approaching design, I draw my inspiration from history and nature to create unique pieces that tend to experiment with light, shadow, and different materials. I love learning as much as I can every day in order to grow as a person as well as a designer.

Atlanta Museum of Architecture For this project the goal was to create a museum of architecture in the city of Atlanta, Georgia. Approaching this project, I focused on materiality of copper, and the form of the building to make it stand out within the city. Then creating shadows for those inside the building to experience.

Light & Shadow Instillation For this project the objective was to create an instillation in the Lee 1 courtyard of Clemson. the installations purpose was to interact with the sun to create interesting visual effects with light and shadow. For this model, I used 13,000 plastic coffee stirrers to create this crystallized form.

Subtractive Design The instillation created two different effects when it interacted with the sun. One effect was harsh shadows when the sun was directly over the instillation. However, when the sun was hitting the instillation at a less direct angle the light would filter through the straws and create a rippling light that resembles light hitting water.

Where Earth Meets Sky For this project the objective was to create a pavilion in the mountains of the south east United States, using my design I used the folded plate technique to frame the sky. In addition to the structure being folded plate I terraformed the landscape around to blend the structure into the site.

The folded plate technique creates a unique experience for those inside this pavilion. It creates an artificial cave like experience for people to engage with the structure climbing it and sitting on it.

Summer Studio Design & Build: Lee VR Lounge Over the summer of 2018 a group of 10 students and I were tasked with renovating room 257 of Lee hall in Clemson University. We transformed this old storage room into a lounge for students to hangout in as well as a massive green room for students to utilize virtual reality technology to walk around their projects they’ve designed. All of the furniture and walls we built utilized the symPly method created by Clemson University
