Originating from a critique of mixed-use buildings as an undeniable catalyst for social engagement, this project holds more than a conglomeration of diverse programs. Reaching out its tendrils in every direction and strata, the building draws visitors inside directing them towards spaces where programmatic elevators sporadically travel between floors. When one stops and activates a… Continue reading Undergrad Thesis: Social Catalyst


Kinetic Exploration

OBJECT DESIGN: winter_2012  Use of Firefly + Arduino Uno to code the movement An initial interest in the representation of an image through various apertures led to this kinetic investigation.  The physical object is a 9-square grid section of an intended surface of these cells.  Each cell is held in place through a system of… Continue reading Kinetic Exploration

Faceted Spatial Interaction

The following are a series of studies following a previous study on robotics clad with a faceted skin. The scoring of the skin transform into structural members and begin to form interesting spatial qualities. I'm experimenting with how this new structural system can transform from a simple cladding structure, to the primary structure of a… Continue reading Faceted Spatial Interaction
