Chess Set

The creation of the chess set involved a study of the features associated with traditional chess pieces and the formal relationships they contain both within a piece itself and in relation to the set as a whole. Building upon a simple symmetric module, the pieces were constructed in an additive process in which each successive module was slightly manipulated to define the characteristics of a piece’s features. The construction process, based upon proportionality and symmetry, establishes hierarchy and identity.

A Return to the Earth – A Mausoleum

After death, the connection between the body and the earth is made obvious through burial. The mausoleum seeks to emphasize this connection. The massiveness of the walls and the thickness of the overhead slabs surround the interior patrons with heavy, earthen forms. In procession, from the highest, most public level to the lower, private tombs, the weight of the building is kept at a constant four feet above their heads. The plant life growing on the roof only further emphasizes this effect.


By extruding two profiles from a previous project, I created a shape that I then cut off at the confines of a 48’ x 48’ x 48’ cube. To create the interior, I cut into the figure using scaled down versions until there was a usable void. Moments that could be described as tableness, chairness, bedness, stairness, etc (objects and actions associated with dwellings) were then cut into the vessel.



Often times, architecture is described as a set of experiences. What comes along with experiences? Moods. When asked to design a multi-family housing project, the goal was to provide an evolution among three different moods and how these moods, when working individually and collectively, could produce a sublime effect. The three moods specifically being fear, awe, and wonder.


House of European History

The House of European History aims to take a completely neutral approach as it looks to organize not only the 28 countries in the EU but the objects that each country wishes to display as a part of their permanent exhibit. This museum will be situated in Leopold Park, in Brussels, Belgium.  Through this project we explored the ability to 3-D scan objects and then 3-D print them and thus experience each object without the original being displayed, diminishing hierarchy of the objects and the parenting countries.
