Pages. 5-8

The Chiordi Folly I created was part of a movie analysis where we studied phenomena and typology. The movie I was assigned was “The Third Man,” a movie based in a war-torn Vienna immediately post-world war two. I analyzed the camerawork, movie location, characters, filming and editing style, and more. The movie portrays the city as being dense, but having moments of openness, dark with moments of light, empty with moments of population. The project is a 40’ cube plays with the idea of the difference between light versus shadow, solid versus field cities, techtonic versus stereotomic structure.

The Stitch

Pages. 9-12

This was a partnered study abroad studio where we studied the culture of Milan, Italy, and the surrounding cities, and applied what we had learned to the site we were assigned. The site is located in the historic Navigili District between the canals that Leonardo Da Vinchi created and the old city gate. The area has a very split use of just a connection during the day but a hotspot for locals at night. The duality of the area swayed my partner and I to create a dual program which attempts to stitch the area. We designed an underground music venue that locals can attend at night with an urban node at ground level to which locals can enjoy during the day or at night. The design of the project attempts to stitch the area together through various means. The first is by reaching across a canal to a popular plaza. The second is by creating two different “sensory tubes” that transmit the sound coming from the music venue to disconnected areas. Thirdly we created light portals that have a thin layer of water from the canal sandwiched between two layers of glass creating a distorted view to the music venue and from the music venue at night. The material design appropriates the city’s typology of using black I-beams to merge history with contemporary. The program responds and elaborates on the idea that the site is a node and attempts to stitch different areas together.

John Cage Center of Music Arts

Pages. 13-18

The John Cage Center of Music Arts started as a study of John Cage as a person and a few of his compositions. His relaxed and social view towards music and the location of the site are what created my project. The site in Austin, Texas, resides between Waller Creek and the I-35 freeway. My design was to connect the freeway and the creek in different ways, while creating a social aspect to the site. Side of the freeway is noisier and more open allowing for informal social interaction, while the creek side calls for a more subdue private approach. The two sides criss-cross with one another creating an open courtyard in the middle.

Cliffside Box

Pages. 19-22

Cliffside box is a learning experience of Revit. For the purposes of the class the design did not matter as long as it was a 40’ cube. My project resides on a lakeside cliff with a retr lowers the residence’s boar onto the lake. We were tasked with creating a set of “working drawings” ranging from plans and section, details, schedules, and renderings. We had a checklist of items to display in our drawings per the professor.

Analysis

2D Paneling

Apr. 2015

4 Weeks

May. 2015

Pages. 25-26

The assignment was to incorporate an archenemies solid into a 2D surface with it with the paneling tool in such a way that there would not be any gaps. The only rule was the pieces had to be connected to the face of one another.

Osembashi Pier

Pages. 27-28

This project was for a construction class I was in. The assignment was to select a building and do a structural analysis of the primary, secondary, and tertiary elements. We explored these elements through both physical models and digital drawings.

Kaufmann Desert House

Pages. 29-32

The first studio I was in was broken into three parts, delineation, construction, and design. In the delineation section we were assigned a building and we were to draw a section, exploded axonometric, plan, all four elevations, and a creative drawing. The creative drawing was a drawing that was up to us on how to represent the building. I chose to make a shadow box with glass panels that I drew the elevation and section on. 23

Invisible Ink Slides Put Together

This is the “creative drawing� that I did for the project. I created a shadow box to highlight two important layers to the building. The first being the elevation at varying depths to simulate the depths of different elements and the second being a section cut that is invisible unless under a black light drowning out the elevation plates. 31

Photography: Before and during architecture school

Pages. 35, 36, 38

Photography is something that lies close with me because it is a way to express oneself and whatever the photograph is taken of. With different angles, contrasts, colors, and even layers, something boring can suddenly become interesting, unique, and different. A photograph can jar the senses, and if done properly, it can create an emotion, recreate a scene, inform and, misinform. There are many things a simple image can do. These are some of the important reasons why photography goes hand to hand with architecture and one reason why I got into architecture.

Personal Project

Pages. 37

This project started as just as my final project for a welding class I was in, but later it became a personal project. The table uses a combination of techniques from welding and woodworking. - Metal portion: 44ft was used of 1” tubing, cut at 30, 45, and 60 degree angles, welds are done with a MIG (wire) welder. - Wood portion: wood is 15/16“ red alder, cut into 1” strips and glued together with simple scarf joints, scarf joints align with angles of the metal. - Finish: satin black paint for metal, natural wood stain and stain polyurethane sealant.

Thank you for spending your time looking through my portfolio. I really appreciate you looking through my work more than you could imagine. If you have any questions about anything in this portfolio you may email me. I love to talk about my work as should anyone who is proud of what they have done and should continue to. This portfolio will only expand so I’m exited to see where I end up and what goes into here. There are other works of mine that I didn’t include in this portfolio but that is partly due to the length of this portfolio already. Like I said before, if you have any questions please feel free to email me. Have a good day From
