MY PASSION AND GREAT ENJOYMENT FOR ARCHITECTURE IS BECAUSE I BELIEVE WE CAN AFFECT THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF THE PEOPLE. ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //Richard Rogers


Design is what makes everyday life exist. From the handle of the coffee pot to the entrance to an office building, design is what allows living in the modern world easier and more possible. I want to be a part of that. I enjoy design because of the effect it can have on people lives. I enjoy making people happy. I believe that as designers, architects or artists in general, we can help people live better lives through space and form. To me, it is not always the structure, but the spaces the structure creates that are most interesting.

/////////// design statement////////////////////////////////////// A quote by Arthur Erickson sums up this idea of space v.s. structure- “Space has always been the spiritual dimension of architecture. It is not the physical statement of the structure so much as what it contains that moves us.� It is the successful integration of the two that draw me into architecture and design.

spring ‘10 arch | 354 Located in Boise, Idaho, Fire Station #5 not only show cases the heroic, iconic fire fighting profession, but also provides for it as well, through thoughtful use of materials, in particular concrete masonry units, through emphasizing the public display of service, and through providing a greater quality of life for the clients of the building design, the fire fighters.

The architectural character of the facility stems from original inspirations and precedents of the Bauhaus/De Stijl style where positive and negatives spaces intersected and collided. These selective collisions create the substantial planes of CMU that shape the voids to create program driven spaces and direct circulation.

interior design capstone project

The center for sustainable living focuses on a change in lifestyle. // sustainable living center This complex for the promotion of sustainable living will encompass various components: an educational experience, hands-on opportunities to ‘go green,’ a convenient resource to provide the public with these components, and everyday occasions to implement eco-friendly initiatives for everyone involved.

interior design capstone project

The building will be considered a center or a mini-metropolis for basic eco-friendly options for everyday materials, methods, and habits. This adaptability hub, so to speak, will provide the opportunity for the public to emulate these sustainable practices in their lives and living spaces.
