EXPERIENCES

INTERESTS GRAPHIC DESIGN

UNCC Fabrication Lab Employee: This compensated position offers unique opportunities to develop skills on a variety of fabrication tools, including woodworking, metalworking, robotics, lasercutting and 3d printing. FabLab representatives work closely with students, helping them develop architectural ideas and produce physical works. Student-controlled Independent Study: In collaboration with Structures professor David Thaddeus, alternative methods of architectural representation were explored, focusing on an in-development concept of ‘structural parti’, to be explored further in an independent architectural thesis titled “Off the Wall Architecture”. Professor-led Independent Study: Explored ‘Synthetic Topographies’, an experimental topic focused on developing a new language for communicating, organizing, and understanding data regarding the urban landscape, while also exploring modes of topographic representation and the ideologies of ‘landscape urbanism’. ROME Summer Abroad Study Program: A five week live-in program in the urban landscape of Rome, the program involved studying the historical architecture of the city while analyzing the growth and integration of the public with the built landscape. A simultaneous digital photography course served to gain experience documenting the city and its inhabitants, culminating in an exhibition of curated works.

FRAME Structural Studio Warehouse Project The warehouse program space is split into two volumes to “frame” the road that connects both adjacent sites. A vierendeel truss bridge connects these two volumes over the road, celebrating this unique condition and re-defining everyday vehicular travel as an ‘event’.

1_Cast in place concrete wall plane is poured above a slab on grade foundation. 4_Steel beams run between girders located at each concrete wall, establishing structural grid for roof.

2_Pin connections are welded to a steel plate anchored to the spanning portion of the concrete wall plane.

5_Corrugated metal deck, insulation, and green roof installation sit atop structural grid.

3_Steel girder is suspended from cast in place concrete wall using pin connections.

6_Secondary beams provide attachment surface for glass panels and vertical cable truss members.

Continuing this theme of ‘frame’, the primary structure is composed of large, monolithic Cast In Place concrete wall planes atop a slab on grade concrete pour. These wall planes suspend a steel girder and beam frame which supports a corrugated metal and insulation roof system. Floor to ceiling glazing is used to sponsor maximum visibility, made possible by spider fittings and a cable truss system for lateral bracing. This unique structure iterates concepts employed at Mies’ Crown Hall in Chicago, IL, enabling a large span column free interior space suitable for manufacturing, storing and exhibiting landscape scupltures by the artist Richard Serra.

1_CONCEPTION Off the Wall Architecture is an in-development Master’s Thesis topic that questions the current practice of structural articulation in architecture, and posits a method of ‘structural sketching’ through modelmaking similar to the practice of architectural parti development. Simultaneously, non-traditional methods of architectural representation are explored, for example how to convey planimetric details in a form other than printed, pinned drawings. Off the Wall Architecture will involve an intense investigation into architectural materials, modelmaking, fabrication processes and representation, culminating in a series of experimental model products that will provide a unique perspective on how architects perceive designs physically, and what opportunities physical modelmaking techniques can give to the design process. Off the Wall Architecture posits modelmakin as a source of ‘untapped potential’ for architectural representation, and by extension architectural design as a whole. Where modelmaking exists primarily as a design tool in academia, and a luxury in practice, Off the Wall Architecture seeks to shift the perspective regarding models as an extraneous effort back towards modelmaking as an integral design process.

CRAFT “But precisely because the knowledge of complex material behavior was in the hands of craftsmen [and later on, of architects and engineers] there was a general disregard for it. Western societies, all the way back to their ancient Greek origins, have traditionally despised manual knowledge.” Manuel DeLanda, Philosophies of Design

The architectural model stands as a symbol of division between academia and practice, simultaneously essential to the traditional student’s workflow, and unwieldy/costly to professionals. Nevertheless, value still exists in architectural modelmaking (in both disciplines) for a variety of reasons, as a physical means of visualizing ideas, an invaluable tool for communication, and a means to ground an increasingly digital process in physical roots.
