High Point Park Competition Spring Semester 2010

This was a one week competition to design a 1 acre rooftop park for the UPMC U.S. Steel Tower in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. If constructed it would be the larget rooftop park in the world at 64 stories in the air. It was a joint competition between the School of Architecture, Heinz School, and Tepper School of Buisness. Team placed in the top 4 of the competition.

Studio Spring Semester 2010: Farnsworth Visitor Center

This was a group project that experimented designing a modular component with the CNC Mill to be part of a new Farnsworth Vistor Center in Plano, Illinois. The project was conducted after a trip visiting the actual Farnsworth House and made use of a single material, concrete, something that was the complete opposite to Mies van der Rohe's use of steel and glass in the Farnsworth House.

Materials & Assembly Spring Semester 2010: Wooden Plywood Canopy

Constructed a 12 x 10 x 10 foot plywood canopy with a group. This project was based off Gaudi's catenary arches and experimented with bending and constructing an entire project out of one material, Baltic Birch plywood. This was an exercise in creating architectural construction drawings and carrying the design project out to full-scale construction. Later the canopy was disassembled, brought to my house, varnished by me, and now stands in my parent's back yard as a sculptural piece.
