  • Zapopan Centro is a housing project with a public Mercado located in Guadalajara, Mexico. The units were arranged in an alternating sequence to allow for future expansion depending on residents needs and financial situ-ations. Within each unit an interlocking system was designed to maximize small square footage. The faade system is used for controlled shading for the interior of the units and controlled winds coming from the northern mountains. This project focused on allowing low income housing residents the opportu-nity to expand and adapt their spaces in the future.

  • The City Heights design was to en-hance the quality of life in City Heights, CA, this design was developed for the City Heights Community Development Corporation. Its intended to integrate commercial and residential units to pro-duce affordable housing in this diverse community. This design contains three flexible unit types that combine an inter-locking system within each building. The project proposes, four residential towers that have studio units, one bedroom units and two bedroom units. It also con-tains a commercial tower that allows commercial storefront space, studio unit and one bedroom unit. In the end, the project focuses on harmonizing com-mercial with residential to create a more dense and affordable housing project.

  • This design focuses on the structure of plants and how it can mimic a eroded root system near Sweetwater refuge in Chula Vista, CA. Over time, as the site began to recede along with the earth, which covered plant vegetation, the plants embedded its roots and structur-ally created a visible fixed root system in the ground. The faade created on the side of the design mimics the natural form found in plant life around the site.

  • The work produced in design commu-nication II is an investigation through 2D representation and 3D modeling that creates a conversation between language and design. Architectur-al drawings embodies the ability to convey visual graphic and digital skills to illustrate and identify topics of or-der, intensity, repetition and systems.

  • Linear compression tension is closely as-sociated with the case study of St. Johns Abbey which was designed by Marcel Breuer. The church was built with cast in place concrete making it a modernistic style of architecture in the year of 1961. The structure itself contains similar valleys of triangular spaces that line the walls of the church. This system of the triangula-tion can be seen from inside the church as well as the exterior walls. The ceiling of the cathedral also has a similar pattern of horizontal angles that run through the struc-ture. One significant difference between this case study and this system is the added spline within the ceiling element. This spline movement creates a curve that breaks the horizontal pattern, creating a sense of a curvilinear movement within the system.

  • This charrette process was a quick design solution to create a propos-al that would stimulate the identity of Barrio Logan. National Avenue located in Barrio Logan is the gate-way for bicyclist into downtown. The barrio bench proposal was to design a multi functioning bike rack/bench that would be designed for MTS bus stops and Chicano park. The de-sign allows local Barrio Logan artist to showcase their art on the piece, creating a visual art gallery of Chica-no artwork throughout community.
