Between the Threads 2016-2017

Between the Threads was an installation designed by a team of six high school students for Exhibit Columbus’ 2017 exhibition. The design covers the narrow site in a maze of screens, using steel frames and plastic string to create planes of mixing, variable color. The project mobilized the community, wrapping 53 miles of recyclable string around 80+ panels.

Second Year Competition 2019, 2nd Place

Program: Mosque Deliverables: Section, elevation, plan drawings on board, 1/8th scale model Opacity is the basis for the scheme. Nested spaces of varying translucency are used to produce a smooth transition from the open, secular outside world to the private, sacred prayer hall. The model and board use screen printed layers of ink and string respectively to communicate a gradient of transparency.


Painting Towards Architecture 2018 Fall Studio

Contemporary paintings were used to generate a formal vocabulary that was used throughout the semester, culminating in the design of an art museum. The language of the painting underwent a series of translations; painting to topography to landscape to architecture and back to painting. This closed loop of design produced a linguisticly consistent work that started and ended with paint on canvas.


George Condo’s Population of Forms (2011) is misread as an abstract landscape, then misread as architecture.


Cubist columns have been hollowed out to house the vertical circulation and serve as lightwells. A ribbon-like facade strategically delaminates from the floorplates to tightly control the natural light.

Psychological Cubism, a term coined by George Condo, is the practice of depicting multiple contradictory mental states in a single subject.

Psychological cubism was interrogated through the lens of architecture by dramatizing and overlaying lighting conditions in plan, section, and perspective paintings.
