PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

1. JUNIOR ARCHITECT __________________________ What follows are examples of professional work I have accumulated from over the past three years. These experiences range from institutional architecture, historic buildings, high end residential and hospitality to low income housing. The work samples hope to display a balanced education in contract documents, renders, graphic design, surveys, etc. Other essential skills such as construction administration, specification editing, contractor and client coordination and overall office administrative tasks are now also a part of my skill set and I am happy to discuss them further upon request. The render to the right is a visualization I created for the lobby space of a 3K Center that is being converted from a supermarket building. Part of the tile proposal is to serve as way-finding for the children. Another asset highlighted in this render is the dynamic ceiling soffit design and the fun lighting fixtures fitting for an early development school.

On this page are some construction drawings I drafted in Revit during my time at kenny & khan architects. The project on display is Primary School 61 in the Bronx. This is a Capital Improvement Project for exterior masonry restoration, flood elimination, roofs and parapets. Some of my tasks for this project were CD drafting, consultant and client coordination, presentations, scope reports and submission management.

FALL 2017 COMPETITION 2 Weeks

1. CONVERGENCE_____________________________________ Honorable Mention in the National Organization of Minority Architecture Student Competition. Convergence is a proposal for a school and community center in Sunnyside, Houston TX as an effort to bring the community together and serve as a point of pride and means to which improve living situations in a problematic urban neighborhood. My role in the competition was to be in charge of Graphic Standards and in the final board layout, design development in the landscaping and outdoor amenities, and leading the verbal presentation during both rounds on the competition.

2. SHRAPNEL________________________________ Urban intervention appropriating a bridge pier from the old Talmadge Bridge that was rendered obsolete but not disposable by the city of Savannah. Proposal for a memorial for the ever changing atrocities that pepper the 24 hour news cycle. Never has the world been this hyper aware of the events occurring all over it, to the point where tragedy has become closer to banality than perceivable pain. The architecture hopes to provide a place where the overload of information delivered through a procession carefully selected spaces will magnify significance and understanding of the tragedies that occur everyday. This Building proposes to serve as a place where the visitor will be overloaded with information of current events updated in real time, but will also understand how those moments were recrudesced in history, ultimately coming out of the experience with a clearer sense of why they occurred and wiser for it.

3. UBER SKYPORT______________________________ Result of Collaborative Learning Center project where I was selected to explore the intersection air travel and on demand ride sharing for Uber. My focus area within this project was to: Create master plan layouts to ensure maximum efficiency within code that dealt with the landing and taking off of eVTOLS. Design the architecture and provide a scalable kit of parts that could be applied to the structural components of design and be retrofitted to attach to the top of several different building typologies. Draft the ultimate plans, axons and overall component representation from Rhino 3D into vector drawings to communicate the built environment effectively.

On September 19th 2017 an Earthquake of Magnitude 7.1 hit the historic center of the City of Puebla. Its reverberations were so fierce it was felt in multiple other places within the country. This earthquake took homes, lives and livelihood, especially within Mexico City, which as one of the most densely populated places on this earth suffers immensely at the failure of any type of infrastructure. What truly cause this suffering could be redeemed by the following through of zoning laws and building codes has still some spaces that get lost in the maze that this city envelops. One of the most prolific cases of this occurred in the South of the city. A school collapsed, yes because of the earthquake, but also because of the unlawful expansion the school took on to accommodate more children, thus leaving the realms of structural stability to satisfy S demand.

4. 09.19.17__________________________________ On September 19th 2017 an Earthquake of Magnitude 7.1 hit Mexico City. As one of the most densely populated places on earth, it took the homes, lives and livelihoods of thousands of people. One of the most prolific losses occurred in the southern region of Mexico City. A school collapsed because of the reverberations of the earthquake, but just as much from unlawful expansion and inadequate construction unfit to house so many children. Affected By Earthquake

Today there is no longer a school, but there is an entire generation that will be dealing with the physical and mental repercussions of this event.

Commercial Residential Institutional Green Areas

This project as an independent venture, first analyzed and mapped the damage to the neighborhood. It catalogs the zoning and highlights the affected school building. It proposes a new building to stand where the school used to be, a civic center with the capacity to shelter the community as they heal from this traumatic event and equipped with the tools to keep the community safe if another event of this magnitude where to happen again.

SUMMER 2018 INTERNSHIP 10 Weeks

6. WEST SIDE PLAN____________________________ Immediately after graduation I accepted an opportunity to launch the re-visioning of the Westside of Chattanooga Summer Fellowship Intern Program. My involvement ranged from in depth research of the history of the Westside to understand its current state, to proposing organizing large scale frameworks, mapping assets of the region and creating diagrammatic preliminary visualizations, approaching people of the public housing community and asking for their opinions and input, working with local government officials, local designers and artists, and presenting to multiple board members and stake holders. The Westside, although cut off from the main historic downtown by a highway interception, is over twice the size of the main downtown, and has a rich view filled topography and river exposure that makes it a clear prime real estate area for the near future of Chattanooga. With the steady surge of people migrating back to cities, it is of key importance to the design community and government officials of Chattanooga to not displace any current residents of the public housing system currently in the Westside.

A product of a quarter Studying abroad in Lacoste France during Fall 2017,the Mistral became a familiar an awe inspiring phenomenon and force of nature I wished to harness and use for inspiration for this project. As an instrument of Objectify, the wind as an unpredictable source of spatial modification. An ever-changing environment enforces an absence of control. This turbulent environment will serve as catalyst for the creative work resident artists will create during their stay on the SCAD Lacoste Campus.

8. BAÑOS TALAVERA____________________________________ 6. BAÑOS TALAVERA ____________________________ Adaptive reuse and restoration is incredibly important to preserve the cultural identity and sense of place of a building. For this studio project, based in Mexico, we were tasked on designing a thermal bath complex in a very battered down hacienda in Yucatán, called Hacienda Yaxopoil. The architectural history of Mexico is so unique in its syncretism it can be viewed as a metaphor of the Mexican people as well. The shifts in building tradition that can be traced through the remaining hacienda resonated so deeply with me, that I felt it would be inappropriate for anything other than contemporary architecture to follow in the synchromatic tradition of this site. My design was extracted from an analysis of what currently remains on the grounds of the hacienda. Through the reconstruction of original geometric talavera tiles resulted in three dimensional forms that followed a tile like pattern. Symmetrical enough in plan and layout to resonate with the original site, but sufficiently stylized to point towards a new direction in Mexican architecture.

The archaeological Dig also provided me with the opportunity to intern for an architect who was consulting on the site. This internship involved measuring the site, modeling different stages of its recorded history on Rhino 3d, and revising Restoration and preservation strategies to safeguard areas that might be in danger of collapse.

Path for Safe Shelter Savannah

FREEDOM BY DESIGN SCAD


SPRING 2017 TEAM 1 YEAR

1. Freedom By Design__________________________ Urban intervention appropriating a bridge pier from the old Talmadge Bridge that was rendered obsolete but not disposable by the city of Savannah. Proposal for a memorial for the ever changing atrocities that pepper the 24 hour news cycle. Never has the world been this hyper aware of the events occurring all over it, to the point where tragedy has become closer to banality than perceivable pain. The architecture hopes to provide a place where the overload of information delivered through a procession carefully selected spaces will magnify significance and understanding of the tragedies that occur everyday. This Building proposes to serve as a place where the visitor will be overloaded with information of current events updated in real time, but will also understand how those moments were recrudesced in history, ultimately coming out of the experience with a clearer sense of why they occurred and wiser for it.

First Site Visit to Safe Shelter The backyard at SAFE Shelter is highly used by both women and their children. Even Though the home is at a secure and undisclosed location, residents can use exterior amenities such as this yard, the playground and the gazeebo it encompases.

Cheryl Branch led us through our first visit to Safe Shelter, and we became aware of the sensitivity an environment shielding people from domestic abuse needs to have. Because of this secure environment, the place that struck most contrast was Safe Shelterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backyard a highly used and ample exterior space that had very noticeable maintenance issues problematic to residents and children.

In further efforts to understand the nature of the problem of Exterior conditions at Safe Shelter we went on a rain site visit. The main problems we 7' - 6" encountered were:

30' - 6"

12' - 0"

- Clogged rain gutters - Excessive water being released in the middle of a pedestrian circulation path - No natural drainage on pedestrian path resulting in large muddy puddles - Even though it was raining, residents still ventured outside to the gazebo and walked through the mudd and water pooling.

2. Deviate the downspout of water away from the path end via rain barrels. 3. Landscape the edge of the path and connect the overflow water from the barrels to select plants to control flooding.

Providing students with exposure to freely experiment with different properties of concrete was one of our goals as a chapter. We accomplished this by hosting multiple concrete play days, through which we also refined our ultimate patterns for the concrete pavers.

A potential future project could be a larger yard pavilion better for the multitude of purposes the women of safe shelter use this small gazebo now for.

1. Create a paved path with key custom pavers to make the experience thoughtful and unique to the residents and the children.

Due to a combination of budgeting issues and looking forward to potential future build proposals for SCAD FBD we decided not to extend the path all the way to the Gazebo.

Understanding Understanding and Recording Topography and Recording

Topography Design Charrette

Since flooding is closely tied to site drainage, our design and construction mentors arranged for our team to have a site survey at Safe Shelter. This provided a unique experience for students to record and understand the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s topography.

With our first Design Charette we reached out to the student body for them to become familiar with Safe Shelter. It was very important to begin establishing awareness of safe shelter and our efforts to create a path and minimize the flooding to the path.

We then calculated the cubic footage of fill dirt we would require to reshape the landscaping of the yard to optimize drainage in a way that would minimally affect residents using the path.
