I used a material contrast of wire and brick to form the essence of this structure. The wire dictates the circulation of the library, weaving in and out of the walls, also creating functional aperture screens. scale: 1/8� = 1’ west elevation

03

My research focused on the site and surrounding area’s historical usage. I mapped how downtown St. Louis has grown since the mid-1800s. Bordered by the Ead’s Bridge and Mississippi River, the site has a unique advantage as the forefront of the St. Louis skyline, visible by boat, car, and foot.

water


My poolhouse was designed through horizontal planes; the pools are vertically layered so that water flows from the highest pool to the lowest. The ascending circulation contrasts the water’s descending journey.

mixed-use complex

This structure contains residential apartments, office space, a cinema, and retail stores. It is sectionally divided into a grid of load-bearing walls and glass inserts, allowing light to fufnnel in from the southern direction. This project was explored through a series of different study models.


urban network

05

Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, this is an interior architecture renovation of a late 16th century fortress, designed under the rule of King Christian IV. This fortress, once remodeled as a brewery, is now proposed as the home of a tribute to Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard and a museum for Danish artifacts and statues.

My design process began by studying two maps: the urban layout of Copenhagen compared to that of my hometown, Chicago. While Copenhagen has grown, shifted, and changed with the times, Chicago contains a gridlike layout, completely re-built after its great 1871 fire. These contrasting systems were reflected in my design. The old fortress, very settled after hundreds of years, has steeply sloped floors and a strangely angled floor plan. I laid a very strict grid pattern down, creating a “new’ circulation that excentuates the beauty of the old building. It creates a joinery of both Chicago and Copenhagen’s urban networks, each one helping highlight the other.


06 kite

My kite is designed with a gray outer shell that catches and holds the wind. It’s blue inner “sails” flutter by moving around the wire frames, manuevering through the kite’s structure as the wind does.

Using construction documents, I generated line drawings and renderings which showcase the internal working systems of a wall section of the Wydwon Middle School, located in St. Louis, Missouri.* *Produced with James Atkins & Allison Bernett


*Completed with the help of Ben Kremer, Sean Dula, Kristy Nowotarski, and Chi Omega and Beta Theta Pi Fraternities


08 facade construction

As construction co-chair for Washington University’s annual ThurtenE Carnival, I was responsible for managing the construction of this 30 x 30 x 16’ facade. We worked with a summer camp theme; the exterior resembled a cabin while the interior was made to feel like the camp grounds. My construction and design decisions helped the team take first prize.*

10 the tower & the log

The two pieces of the home, described as the tower and the log, embody both the height and length of the natural coasts and forests of Nova Scotia, Canada. The more public log contains the family of five’s main living space, whereas the private tower embodies the bedrooms and studio space. These rooms embrace the verticality of its surrounding trees, allowing the viewers glimpses of nature throug thin, vertical openings.
