On a site equal to five standard lots in the area, the assignment aimed to increase the land. From the original

Along with efficiency, the project is designed to be a low-budget construction.
Localizing plumbing walls
and using precast materials were primary methods for cost-reducing building production.
The Splintered Chair was an early scholastic attempt to understand and expand on material properties.
Lamination and manipulation helped to mold a unique chair while using wood in an uncharacteristic way. The chair appears to be torn from the wall, expressing its splintering material nature.
At a maximum of four hundred attendees, the Theater in the Woods includes a black-box theater, café, along with the traditional theater. The building is designed to be constructed directly over the main circulation trail in pre-existing park. The
path marks a theoretical division on the site, on one side ‘private’ woods and on

interior spaces structured around the truck paths. The second level follows the same rapid response concept. The linear paths between all vertical circulation points within the building creates direct access to the ground level from all locations as well as an interior light well, allowing privacy and daylighting.

The Franklin Point Master Plan divided an eight acre site into five buildable parcels while creating four pavilion areas. The plan developed the buildings to meet maximum site FAR. The site maintains an urban streetscape along the exterior lot lines while creating a completely original and inviting public area within. The central plaza creates a distinct gathering
space for users in addition to connecting all buildings and pavilions to the river, the dominant feature of the site.
