    The Seaport District is the fastest growing community in Boston. Our site was in the heart of it. On a site such as this one, how do you make a statement, while also make something functional and beautiful simultaneously? Intense site analysis, advanced tectonic studies, and material studies began to factor in to create this 10,000 square foot complex featuring a canal that cuts through the center creating a boat bay allowing boats to circulate around the pier as well as dock in the repair space. It also takes advantage of the site with specific orientations to particular views such as a processional hallway that looks outward towards downtown Boston directed by louvers oriented directly towards a central node. It also looks inward to the canal below creating dynamic moments throughout the building. Function, structure, efficiency, and how the building is put together were emphasized extensively throughout the process.

  • WOODLAND outpost

    This cartographer outpost situated on a sloped site in the woodlands of Amherst was conceived in 2 weeks. We had to work with how a building interacts and integrates within a landscape. I developed a design that minimally impacts the existing environment and takes advantage of passive design strategies to create a place that works with the space rather than working within a space. Where artificial construction is implemented, I used the idea of highlighting the contours with distinct edges (oftentimes stairs) to respond to what a cartographer works with on a daily basis.

  • In the Maison Couture project, done in my sophomore year, I focused not so much on a particular designer, but on the process of how a piece of clothing is produced. The process of making a piece of clothing is just as important as the clothing itself because if theres no process, theres no clothing. In the Maison Couture project my concept came very early when I was sticking together paper and realized that the structure that kept layers together interested me the most. After analyzing Newbury Street, I realized the actually street is a structure of its own. It pins together the residential and commercial neighborhoods in the Back Bay. I wanted to apply this concept to my design which was achieved by having this open, central space connect the different layers (public, private, offices, workshops) together as one surrounded by this structural grid that realistically pins together the spaces honestly as a pin holds together two pieces of clothing being sewn together.

  • I designed this fashion house predominately in section. This helped me achieve the layering effect I wanted to exploit. The offices are all lofts overlapping the central space which set an overlapping theme for the entire design creating a rich, carved, and unique space.

  • HUBWAY pavilion

    The Hubway Pavilion located in Cambridge Common was a 2 1/2 week project to introduce us into the study of tectonics. I wanted to engineer a structure that was respectful to the site and celebrates the history of it. The structures frame the view of the central monument. I moved the walkway on axis with the monument to restore its historical orientation. Lastly, the structures weave the perimeter of the walkway to create a winding, progressive circulation within a very axial and hierarchical walkway.

  • I look at a photograph and I do not see an image, but a visual diagram that can express a certain part of a building or an effect that can not be seen in a drawing or a rendering. When I take pictures, I take them with the intent of learning something about the building, site, situation, or object, not how pretty or big the building is. Architectural photography is essential for understanding a building or space visually. There is something about photography that cannot be expressed by words. Whether it is the quality of light, spacial geometries, atmosphere, texture, scale or other qualities (and not just architectural qualities), a photograph can express these visually and it is a very helpful tool and skill to possess because it provides endless opportunity, information, and inspiration.
