  • Spurred by a chronic curiosity, I discovered early in my academic career my interest in kinetic systems and spaces. It had been my belief that due to the nature of people sustaining desires of full custom-ization amongst their possessions that a solution should be provided in the same manner amongst the built environment that would allow for the user (or inhabitant) to continually manipulate spaces within a buildings contour. Eventually, the conceptu-alization and development of these spaces matured and reacted to user differentiations with the use of mechanically engineered elements. However at the same time, my conceptual developments translated ideas responding to the issues regarding the duali-ty between the modernization and state of nature. These two ideas served to mold my design agenda with an emphasis in reactive spatial configuration and adaptive systems that served both environ-ments. This agenda to merge these elements into a symbiotic environment has grown to be problematic, at least when one attempts to solve this problem us-ing a cradle-to-grave model as William McDonough and Michael Braungart discuss in their book, Cradle to Cradle. However, with the developments taking place among biological research and experimen-tation, there are potential solutions that have the ability to merge these evolved systems into becom-ing heavily involved in the increasing modernization of society. Subsequently, I have become immersed in

    the formulation of Architectural adaptations with an absorbing fascination in bio-mimetic technologies. Bio-mimicry is defined as the study of structures and functions of biological systems in an effort to generate models for the application of design and engineering of devices, substances, processes, and systems. In addition, the formulation of a personal design methodology developed into the progression of the creation residing within a systematized lab, where variables become the entities that formulate and translate geometries and systems into finalized Architectures that are all products generated by conceptual hypotheses and generalizable methodologies. Consequently, my designs function through their development to gather and respond to variables of a given context and situation to enrich the experience and perception of those, human or not, inhabiting the space within and around the Architecture. Albert Einstein once said, The world will not evolve past its current state of crisis by using the same thinking that created the situation (Mc-Donough & Burngart, 2002), and although we have become a society claiming to be green, we still practice and reinvent processes that continue to inhibit any legitimate ecology between the built environment and the natural world. With that being said, the Emergence movement was formulated and is defined in the journal Emer-gence: Morphogenetic Design Strategies as, an explanation of how the natural systems have evolved and maintained themselves and set of models and processes for the creation of artificial systems that are designed to produce forms and complex behavior, and perhaps even real intelli-gence. (p. 6). With the synthesis of modernization

  • and emergent technologies, the solutions to modernization problems may arise in a manner filled with composite materials and systems pro-viding appropriate services for their users and the contextual environment, thus creating an actual symbiotic relationship amongst the environment and humanity. For this reason, I intend to emmerse myself in the research and development of resilient and adaptive spacial structures based upon the syntheses of biological processes, morpho-eco-logical premises, and phenomenological asser-tions. I plan to communicate not only with others pioneering in the field, but also those who have the appropriate skills needed to complete the projects accurately with confident results. It is my goal to assist in the eventual global understand-ing and appreciation of biological systems in relation to the modernization of humanity in the realm of, not only Architecture, but all disciplines.

  • COASTAL CENTER The project served as an introduction and exploration in the configuration of Architectural form and space configuration. The design did not necessarily focus on the phenomonological aspects of the design, rather streamlined design from a macro scale of the proposed Architecture. As the design transitioned from sculpture toward Architecture, the program was chosen as to what the sculpture would mature into to become an Architecture and manifest an experience within itself.

  • The design went through spatial transformations within the architecture itself and among the ground condition thus reacting to the Architecture to accomodate for the programmatic needs and interaction of water among the spaces.

  • MARITIME MUSEUMLOCATION: SAVANNAH, GA

    The project proposed a museum that is located at the entrance to River St., which is a dense tourist district part of the downtown Savannah area that runs along the Savannah River. The museum provides shelter to, not only all of the historic relics related to the trade industry of the area, but an actual sail boat that was unearthed on site.

    The conceptualization of the Architecture has been articulated to create an experience that mimics the raw emotions of the relentless waters of the oceans and tales that were told about the creatures within it.

  • To achieve the essence of the power of the ocean along with the mystery perceived along with the environment, studies were taken in designing topological volumes that would become discrete notions of the chaotic environment.

  • STRANDBEEST ARCHITECTUURClient: Theo Jansen

    Theo Jansen is a kinetic sculptor whose focus lies in biomechanical ani-mals who are given abilities to interact amongs the environment and other artificial genomes he creates. The project involved the design of a residence for an artist of choice that stood to reflect the essence of their art in the design. The design served to not to abide by the laws of the artists designs, but to accentuate the sys-tems and processes used in the art within the building systems.

  • The study undertaken here involved analyzing a music piece that embodied the nature of the artist and their creations. The piece chosen was a track titled Arion by Blue States. The songs downtempo industrial percussion pushes the edge of a break down of tempo at each measure, yet it continually catches itself to continue its fluidity.

  • One of the skin systems created here was used to create literal shadow play among the in-terior spaces to add a monumental visual dynamic to the project. This dynamic was used to reinforce the essence of the creatures created by the client.

  • PLANSKINETIC ROOF SYSTEM

    The system developed here involved a kinetic louver system used to capture wind and transfer that energy through a fluid wave movement down the arms and into the axle. This system encases the entire roof of the residence. As the axle spins, so do magnets that work to charge a large battery supply to allow for the client to capture useful energy.
