Urban Development for University of Oklahoma Research Campus
PROJECT TYPE: Urban Planning (ONGOING) YEARS: Fall 2016 LOCATION: Norman, OK
DURATIONS: 1 Semester
The re-search development is a proposal that helps to bridge connection not only to students but also to future investor and developers to the university. The plan has three major goals: to improve and attract students, visitors, and potential investors; to establishing connections not only to the world, but first to the city region; and to exposed the area. The plan is to create a better environment by first on focusing on how to attract students to the area.

Innovation Technology for Water Collection
PROJECT TYPE: Competition YEARS: 2015 LOCATION: Meghalaya, India
PROJECT PROPERTY: Group ROLE: Diagrams, Development, and Graphics DURATIONS: 3 Weeks
FOG CATCHER proposes a passive way with which to easily and effectively capture and store water. The construction of these megastructures would be accomplished by the assembly of modular parts offering flexibility of design, ease of maintenance, and efficiency of economy. The fog harvesting mesh would be stretched across the structure to provide a massive surface area for absorbing incoming clouds. FOG CATCHER seeks to provide a passive and efficient water collection solution for the modern era.
Living Root Bridge Meghalaya, India
Geographical Location Meghalaya is a state in India where the Indian and Eurasian continental plates collide creating a huge plateau. The drastic change in elevation provides a perfect location for orographic precipitation to take place. Subsequently, the region of Meghalaya has long held the title of â€œWettest Place on Earthâ€? with an average yearly humidity of 84 percent, and average rainfalls of up to 1200cm annually. However, the geography of the region is also its curse. The region is comprised of 70 percent uninhabitable dense forest, while the tops of the plateaus are flat and barren with shallow soils that do not provide good water absorption. With no adequate means by which to collect this water, it simply becomes runoff.
Fog Harvester Mesh
Living Bridge Components
FOG CATCHER Components
The fog harvesting mesh is a weave of hydroscopic polypropylene fibers. As clouds pass through the fabric, moisture is extracted and condensed on its surface.
The mesh is applied in thin strips between tension cables ensuring mesh remains in constant tension to maximize efficiency.
Water condenses on mesh and gravity pulls the water down, where it is filtered into the transportation pipes.
The larger pipes transfer water from mesh to large vertical storage tanks.
The pipe components allow easy assembly, repair, and expansion.
Storage tanks are stacked via coupling devices providing flexibility of design.
The water that collected in the tanks is filtered and treated.
Community Living for College Students
PROJECT TYPE: Residential YEARS: Spring 2015 LOCATION: Oklahoma City, OK
DURATIONS: 7 Weeks
The courtyard is a large place that unifies the function of the building by creating an intimacy of space, space for social gathering as well as relaxation for the habitants. The placement of the courtyard will create a threshold for the residence and will also acts as a circulation. This vast open area will encourage interactions between the habitants. Multiple paths were introduced that leads up into the interior of the building. The circulation of the building rigidly follows the modular subdivision and sequence of spaces on the interior and a continuous circulation path breaks into rectilinear branches along two axes, forming a multi-directional circulation system. In addition, the interior reflects the sense of belonging for the habitants through the use of simple, smooth, and calm materials, like concrete. This will make the habitants to perceive more sense of belonging and tranquility. The building is equipped with three entrances and is embedded into a deep vestibule-like space that carved away by the modular aggregation on the lower level, which were covered on the upper level. Apart from these great characteristics, the building emerged from the combination between forms and steel structures, making this building to fall under modern architecture category. This building can somehow be described as not a building because it is an amalgamation of those who inhabit it. This interesting structure was built in that specific area to take advantage of the surrounding area such as the picturesque views and the surrounding contexts.

Tietgen Dormitory / Lundaard & Tranberg Architects
The Tietgen Dormitory was designed to adjust within the urban context with the idea of its simple circular form that provides access from all direction. Its cylindrical form orients itself around the inner courtyard, making it for students to engage in activities such as social gathering. The upper levels are organized to provide the residences along the perimeter with the views to the courtyard.
Interior Circulation Threshold Gathering Space
The building’s circular form is based on a symbol of equality. The circulation of the building follows the simple circular form where it flows through the building and oriented to the inner courtyard.
Creating Courtyards The Core aims at encouraging social interactions between the residences, as interactions are the main key to establish connections between residences. The concept idea used to help designing this building came from various precedents, by creating a gathering space, such as courtyards, will boost social interaction as well as activities.
Taking Advantage of the Climate Orienting the building this way will also be beneficial from the climate such as sun orientations, summer breeze and help tackle winter wind. Thus this will create a perfect position for the courtyard for social gatherings and activities.
Tackling Privacy Privacy is also a key in this design. By creating overhangs floor plates around the building will help block the views from the outside, therefore creates boundaries from passerby.
Concept Idea Social interactions start from looking and noticing people. By making floor to ceiling windows around the apartment units will encourage the residences to start engaging in social interactions. The building is also elevated 3-feet from the ground to provide the best view to the surroundings.
