LINE AND PLANE
H A B I TA B L E S PA C E
The insertion was a hypothetical addition to the Alms Building, a pre-existing structure on campus. As a response to the buildingâ€™s widely unused balcony, vertical wooden beams were placed in relation to the topography of the site to create a staircase which led passersby to the often vacant space, as well as serving as an alternate entrance to the building.
The assignment tasked a team of ďŹ ve including myself to use a single 2x4x5 piece of wood and a 4 ft x 8 ft sheet of MDF to construct a robust building unit.
Two parallelograms combined to form a unity between two opposing ideas: Solid and Void.
The unit, made from a volume and a frame, could stack upon itself to create
meaningful dichotomy between the solid and the void.
LINE AND PLANE
Six sets of ďŹ ve lines in various lineweights to study the interactions between lines in space.
A 3D axonometric projection of one ďŹ ve line drawing to study lines in three-dimensional space.
Wooden model of linear-spacial study inspired by ďŹ ve line studies.
Planar-spatial studies in response to linear-spatial studies.
Axonometric rendering of plane cube.
Prismacolor abstraction of axonemetric rendering.
Creation of 3D object through folding edges formed by plane cube abstraction. First formed in paper, then cast in plaster.
A balance point is found in order to to create visual tension.
The basswood armature is made not only to display the object but also to compliment its geometric forms.

Groups of nine were instructed to design a habitable space out of wood and MDF to be fabricated in a week and assembled in a day. Inspired by the Tartan Grid, the space was divided laterally and vertically in increments of 3’-3’-2’ to create asymmetrical proportions.
Vertical wraps deďŹ ned spaces of repose as well as provided shade. Spandex overtop diffused high noon sunlight, reoccuring on the side to do the same for harsh evening sunlight. MDF strips blocked sunlight completely in certain areas
Strips of wood expressed the idea of wrapping and enclosure by connecting the bases of each vertical wooden beam. Areas were deďŹ ned through stratiďŹ cation; each space was set at a different level to indicate a separation of space. Functions of each space were explored and determined by the user.
MONOLITH ERGONOMIC FORM STUDY MATERIAL STUDY
Form and Function dictate architecture and design, and oftentimes one can compromise or be prioritized over the other. The monolith was the synthesis of form and function; made to be comfortable to hold in any conďŹ guration while also being visually pleasing. Neither form nor function preceded the other -- both ideas simultaneously developed together, as should be in good, thoughful design.
A silicone mold was made from the ďŹ rst wooden model and was used to study several different castable materials. The differences in material resulted in differences in weight and texture, creating entirely new visual and ergonomic experiences while still keeping the integrity of the form. Listed from left to right: basswood, plaster, concrete, pewter.
