The existing Providence train station is simply the  result of the intersection of the surrounding traffic patterns translated through the site, those being the trains and street grid. The space moves patrons efficiently, but one that warrants little need to visit other than the act of riding a train.  The…

If, as scientist and philosopher Michael Polanyi states, that “we know more than we can tell,” then can we draw more than we know? What is the act of knowing through drawing? When is this moment of knowing, and how does it happen? Ultimately, even in architecture, the work itself…

  Since Boston’s inception as a colony, its relationship to water has been an important defining characteristic, not only in terms of physical boundaries but also cultural identity. The North End especially embodies these characteristics because of its history as a part of the original city. Located originally on the…

Part of the advanced studio sequence at RISD (Computing Drawing: Similarly Different Lines), this studio explores computer programming as a design medium. In this course, programming (the creation and implementation of algorithms) was applied first though computing drawing via a pen plotter, emphasizing questions of line, composition, color, and mark…

Proposal for a RISD/Brown Dual Degree center, with a significant adjacency to the Rockefeller Library at Brown University. Rather than applying an overt form to the problem and site (Aristotle’s hylomorphic model), this project specifically emerged from contextual conditions, both physical and conceptual.   Phase 1 – Conceptual Emergence RISD +…

As part of a course that developed from the intersection of technology, apparel, and architecture, this project began with a simple thesis: what is the space of touch? Can we visualize/experience the textures we feel in a 3-dimensional way? Collaboration with Daejeong Kim     Texture + Drawing Machine This…
