    : conceptual drawings

    The concept for the design was developed by looking at the physiology of a dove. The dove has two powerful meanings within the realm of Christianity; one being a symbol of peace, and the other representing the Holy Spirit. These drawings show how the body structure of a dove was abstracted and used as influ-ence for program relationships and basic site planning.

    Location: Souderton, PAType: Protestant ChurchYear Designed: 2010Building Area: 19,000 square feet

    Site Conditions: Gradually sloping rural site fairly wooded with large oak and several coniferous trees

    Background: The project is meant to be experienced as a passage through starkly different spaces evoking movement both physically and spiritually. The manipulation of light acts as the main tool in creating this series of different moods, conveying the worshipper along a spiritual journey.

    : sanctuary facade diagram (photoshop) This diagram shows how 2 panels can be layered to create an effect separate from either of the singular panels. The first panel represents a change in color from darker to lighter, and the second panel represents a change in opacity (or light transmittance) from the lower-left to the upper right. When placed overtop each other, the third panel represents how this combination can create a field of light, gradually moving the eye up and to the right. This strategy helps focus the worship-pers attention to the center of the sancturay space, and upwards to the projected cross.

    NEWSCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGNLocation: San Diego, CAType: Architectural Design SchoolYear Designed: 2009

    Site Conditions: The project is located on a 200 foot by 300 foot city block located in the east village of downtown San Diego. The block has virtually no change in grade and very few street trees lining the sidewalk.

    Background: This design project calls for a redesign of The NewSchool of Architecture and Design, which already exists on this plot of land. One stipulation of the project is that the structural columns on the Northern half of the site must be incorporated into the new design.

    : site overview (sketchup)

    I began the design process for the architectural school by looking at the individual studio desk of an architecture student. The diagram to left shows the evolution of scale, from a desk, to a clus-ter, to a studio group. Inadvertently, this process led to a hexagonal studio shape which was echoed throughout further design of the building. Below are various process models which explore the 3 concen-trated building elements of the design studio; structure, skin, and circulation.

    The column grid of the north-ern half of the building and the second story floor plate are existing conditions and were asked to be kept as part of the project constraints. Running through the core of the building are hexagonal steel bents to support the puncture of the floor plates. The new construction of the studio tower is all concrete con-struction.

    The studio tower has three 1 thick concrete shear walls on the western face which act as a thermal mass. There are also mesh screens on the southwest faces of the studio tower to limit solar heat gain from afternoon sun. The skin on the west face is comprised of hexagonal metal screens in front of a glass curtain wall and a small separating air space. There are 3 different types of inserted panels ranging in the density of grating. These panels are an interchangeable, dynamic way to deal with solar heat gain on the large western face of the building. The panels can also control the amount of light infiltrating certain spaces, and be changed for desired exposure for different spaces and times of the year. To the left are early sketches of possible screen patterns.

    3615 NEWARK STREET NW RESIDENCELocation: Washington, D.C.Type: Single Family ResidenceYear Designed: 2012Project Size: 3,200 Sq. Ft.

    Site Conditions: The project is located in the historic northwest Washington D.C. neighborhood of Cleveland Park. The majority of the site is relatively flat with a gradual slope down at the front of the property leading to the street.

    Background: This design project called for interior renovations and a rear addition which nearly doubled the total square footage of the house. Due to the historic neighborhood which this home is located in, the design was required to adhere to the fabric of a largely victorian style neighborhood with many of the adjacent home being built in the early 1900s.
