TECTONICcorrelation

Iterative physical models describing the tectonic relationship between a tensile lattice membrane and planes forming emergent relationships within a larger formal system. The spatiotemporal qualities of the planar model are captured in sequence.


A PHYSICAL AND PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPLORATION OF TECTONIC CORRELATION


EMERGENTdensity This project evalutates crowd based flocking behavior during crisis events. Situated in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, a diagrammatic analysis of swarming behavior directs program and circulation into a structural language of layered density; adressing food, shelter, spiritual, and first aid needs.

DENSITY MAPPING CREATES PROGRAMMATIC LOGIC FOR EMERGENCY SHELTER


MATERIALmatters

An investigation into the interdependent relationship between the natural and manufactured. Material matters shows the emergent relationship between bubble wrap and leaf as modular elements. These are photographically abstracted and given three dimensionality through manipulation of inherent graphical qualities.

VISUALcoding Scored by the Chemical Brothers and directed by Joe Wright, “Hanna� uses tempo and color to describe mood. Each concentric circle represents a period of character transformation, the length of each ray describes the intensity of the tempo, and is colored to the average RGB value of the corresponding frame through the use of Photoshop, Excel, and Grasshopper scripting, Rhino and Illustrator.

PROCESSproduct Notational analysis of the visual information described in the “Hanna� diagramming produces a site and spatial strategy which strategically manipulates ground, wall, and overhead planes with terrain to create a complex, organic form.
