URBAN DESIGN MASTER'S THESIS
An exploration of the acoustic environment found within public space and how the design within those spaces may use acousti-kinetic architectural techniques combined with a reconsidered material palette to simultaneously reduce noise and improve the perceived audible society.
Combining the concepts of cultural preservation and future environmental sustainability, this project questions what could become of the down-trodden neighborhood of Bourj Hammoud so that history is not lost and the refugee population that calls it home is not displaced.
HOMAGE TO HISTORY AND EQUITABLE FUTURES
In 2017, a team led by Prof. Rui Liu and Dean Mark Mistur traveled to Harbin China to construct this 10 meter tall tri-nodal ice structure. Utilizing tensile members and layers of a paper-water mixture in -20° F temperatures, this project stood tall and remains one of the most unique projects I've been a part of.
AWARD WINNING HARBIN STRUCTURAL ICE COMPETITION PROJECT
Studying the intersection of experiential and temporal rhythm while utilizing sound waves to generate a playlist of designs. The Progress Promenade envisions an alternative Cleveland Lakefront made accessible to the pedestrian public.
THE RHYTHMIC CLEVELAND LAKEFRONT LINK
Low to High Resolution design combining master planning along the Redline-Greenway with site selection and development in the Duck-Island neighborhood of southern Cleveland. Light and sensorial spatial experiences define the space this new multi-use neighborhood illuminates.
DEFINING A BEACON ALONG THE RED-LINE GREEN-WAY
An isolated bathing experience which confronts the users with the elements of air, water, earth, and fire while simultaneously questioning the parallax and paradox of nature and structure coexisting.
ELEMENTAL IMMERSION IN NATURE
For years, my passion for residential design and its integration with the environment has led me through multiple iterations of my own home design. Finally finding a design concept that allowed for the plan and design to grow naturally, this home spun from two separate points of initiation is derived from a dual-nodal fractalism.
