Architectural practice is built through the persona of the architect. The feelings, emotions, and personality that is put into a building is completely reliant on the message that the architect wants to convey. Philosophy of architecture can spread beyond just buildings and rooms. Architecture can be described in many forms from furniture to the architectural composition of electronics, to the architectural aspect of a piece of artwork is made. Architecture is the concept of a derived form following a function. The form of all the planetary bodies that preform the function of orbiting our sun. The form of a building preforming a function of aiding to the necessary needs of the general public. From electronics such as daily smartphones having the form that is small enough to fit into a common pocket but a screen large enough to carry our necessary tasks henceforth that aspect of function. And lastly through works of art forms that create a beautiful intricate form, such as on a canvas the angles that take form creating the function of guiding your eyes through the piece of work and the piece of art, creating the function of finally making the person experience and evocative emotion. All the works of my portfolio are all intricate forms. All these forms take the aspect of an architectural project from personal, to school related, to commercial such as internships. These works of architecture through it’s form carry out a specific type of function. These functions are related to the general concept of the building or inherently the overall scheme. You can describe these forms as linear, organic, entropic, or just simply calling it art.

is a project that was conducted in my first semester in my graduate program working to my Masters in Architecture and Planning. The concept had followed creating more options for affordable housing in Buffalo, NY. This project consisted of multiple family housing from traditional 2 story homes to more 2 floor apartments, to even studio-esque apartment complexes. The form of this project was to create an organically circulated community where it resembles almost a miniature city within a currently existing neighborhood in Buffalo.

is a joint project that during my graduate program, we had cordinated with Gowanus Mutual aid to create a better concept of what already exists in Brooklyn. The sharing corner is a space where people are allowed to donate as much as they want as well as take back as much as they want. Through this concept I was able to add iterations within this project to have user specific sharing corners and spreading them throughout Gowanus brooklyn to create nodes where people convene to for donations or necessities they might need.

Gowanus Mutual Aid

was a project that had took place during my undergraduate years in my Bachelors of Science in Architecture and Planning. This project took a very abstract approach to architecture where throughout this semester there was a curation of artistic elements based off of Atelier Van Lieshout, as well as direct narration and summaries from the several undergaduate architecture students.The focus on these narrations were represented through diagrams as well as sectional drawings of the final project deliverable which was a Museum based off these elements.

was a group project which had slowly developed into a bouyant pavillion. This project started off as a bouyant object to which our group had won the best design award. This bouyant object had took place in a race against other bouyant objects created by students in architecture department. Our leg of the race in particular was in charge of being the most bouyant for our respective team. We had to make sure cocoon was able to transport the driver of the boat as well as a sandbag onto shore.

was the first ever full scale build that I had ever participated in. This was a group project with everyone in the group given their respective roles in what they should create and add to the group. For example I was mainly in charge of model making as well as part of the main group of 3 in the overall group that was in charge of the full scale build. This project was based off a more abstract form of bathing where it is seen as a mental clense as you are experiencing the space and walking through it. This entire project was created with complete japanese joinery hence the japanese name. Shin-rinyoku also means a form of forest bathing which this project is located near the forest and endorses a mental clense.

This project was a bicycle center/resilience hub that was meant to better the community to create more opportunities for the neighborhood. This resillience hub had to take advantage of the currently existing bike path to create easy access into the entire site. There was aditionally a construnction document study that was done to study existing buildings and how they have their connections to include that into the project and recreate those construnction document joints at an axon, section, plan, and elevation all in Autocad.

is a firm located in Istanbul, Turkey. During the height of the pandemic of Covid-19, everything had shifted online allowing the opportunity of this internship available to me. Murat Soygenis an Univeristy at Buffalo Alumni was my mentor during this internship, coordinating different design schemes through zoom calls. Through these meetings our focus was to create a conceptual High-Rise concept through specficially renderings. We did not focus on construnction documents or many partie diagrams, but instead curated this concept through sketches and different rendering techniques.
