Denver Biological Infill
a design inspired by a biological form to create a public space for the city of Denver.

the american crow:

this biological object was chosen because of its ability to adapt to various environments. the biological infill takes the principle of adaptability and incorporates it into a specific site located in downtown Denver.

shape grammar:

algorithm 1 is created through an in-depth analysis of a line derived from the crow’s wing. apparatus 1 is constructed by giving the algorithm three dimensional characteristics. this apparatus is then analyzed and incorporated into algorithm 2. this analytical process is repeated through apparatus 3. the apparatus derives a sense of unforeseen depth, new spaces, ideas of circulation, and intriguing framed views. the building form mimics the two and three dimensional shape grammar analysis, while also accomodating architectural needs.

building program:

1

the design, programatically, is about the mingling of two different professions, in this case, the artist and the scientist. the professionals have a private living unit to themselves and a collaborative work studio they share. this design allows the professionals to coexist while compiling inspirations and innovations in an attempt to break the barrier between the arts and the sciences.

the envelope creates ever-changing spaces within the permanent spatial layout. interior sliding panels allow for spaces to be reorganized in a subtle fashion. the interior panels also allow for shade against the Denver sun. the lattice is also used as a buffer against the sun. it allows for light and shadow to penetrate and diffuse throughout the building.

Jazz Structure
an introduction into architectural form through the diagrammatic analysis of a jazz composition.

chorus analysis:

the masterpiece jazz recording analyzed is ‘Lester Leaps In’ by Count Basie and the Kansas City Seven. this analysis defines the underlying structural and thematic components of chorus 5.

the vehicle:

the jazz chorus undergoes further analysis by using a monochromatic, solid vs. void method that conforms to strict binary sequences. the diagrams are then overlaid, added to, and subtracted from in order to create a base, or vehicle, diagram.

variation:

the vehicle is further explored and encoded by examining its contents. this process involves adding, subtracting, scaling, and rotating the solid and void elements, creating a more architectonic schema.

Fall 2007 Level: 1st Year Professor: Bennett Neiman Project Duration: 15 Weeks Site: Fictitious

plan diagrams:

the variation is dissected on the premise of different types of space, i.e. path/place/transition. the new diagrams are then isolated and overlaid to compare different variations within the variation diagram.

laser-constructed improvisation:
0 10’ 20’ 40’ 80’

the two dimensional diagrams are made three dimensional by use of laser cutting technology. a collaborative process between analog and digital is required to create the improvisation. it is a three dimensional multi-tracked drawing. each track must interact with the layers above and below.

jazz structure:

a final jazz design is constructed utilizing laser cutting technology. this design is an abstracted structure. one that serves as a design generator for further development.

Spring 2008 Level: 1st Year Professor: Maria Perbellini Project Duration: 15 Weeks Site: West Chelsea, New York City

New York City Living
the design of a mixed-use building that reacts to the surrounding environment.

a new paradigm:

the highline rips through the urban fabric that is West Chelsea. a slice that breaks the distinction between the fast-paced New York City life and the abandoned railway. the goal is to create an interactive green space that meshes the city with the newly renovated highline. the surrounding buildings must adapt to the highline in order to create a more distinctive harmony between the two.

building elevations:

the building’s beveled corners are derived from the highline’s smooth, flowing path that slides through the city. the prominent building material used is precast concrete with frosted glass covering the front and back facades. clear window glass is contained within the circular openings that frame views of the city.

program:

the building program is mixed-use, both residential and commercial. the ground level hosts the cafe while the second, third (loft), and fourth levels are each single residential units. the fifth level is a public space only accessible by taking the stairway promenade. on the top level there is a large viewing window to the northeast that looks to the highline.

Summer 2008 & January 2010 to August 2011 Level: Undergraduate & Post-Bachelor Degree Companies: ROFA Architects & Brandt Engineering Project Duration: 2 Years Site: Various

Practical Application
examples from two years of work experience within the construction industry.

portable buildings:

during a three month internship at ROFA Architects, I was given the task to create construction documents for sixteen new portable buildings for the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District. I worked directly with Luis Figueroa (partner of ROFA Architects) on this project.

Ornelas Student Center:

this job was considered a ‘beta’ job for the company. it was the first all prefab, design-build job Brandt Engineering had ever done. i was assigned the plumbing and mechanical pipe design. this project required precise modeling so components could be pre-fabricated in-house, sent to the job site, and installed successfully. the design-build process required a constant dialogue between virtual designer, engineer, project manager, project superintendent, architect, and all other trades involved with the project. these details of various mechanical pipe hookups show the precision required in a job that is all prefab.

Poetic Potential of Computers
an exploration into the tactics and techniques of diagramming, analytical observation, and the architectonics of space.
