Berlin - Germany
Site - Ebertstasse
The prompt for the 114th annual John Stewardson Memorial Competition was to design a transformative space of separation and connection along a section of the Berlins Ebertstrasse where the Berlin Wall used to stand.
The collapse of the Berlin wall ended an era of cultural isolation and began an era of unity. Nations that were once separated now coexist in peace. This newfound freedom for exchange of cultures and ideas was amplied by the increasing popularity of the Internet, which narrowed the gap between nations even further.
In todays world of social media, our ability to understand and interact with other cultures is unprecedented; this design intervention is intended to create a space that uses social media to create an environment of cultural enrichment/unication.
The Spaziergang Musik (music walk) is inspired by street performers in cities such as New York and Paris. The space uses the social media platform SoundCloud (an application created and headquartered in Berlin) to connect users with songs that are uploaded by musicians around the world.
The space contains three main performance spaces which will play cultural tunes from various regions throughout the world. Soothing low key melodies will play during the day, but in the evening the tones will become more vibrant, to reect Berlins vivacious nightlife. Each performance space contains an interactive LED display screen, which displays animations (music videos/maps) concurrently with the music. Buer spaces (2 in the site plan) in between each performance space prevent noise overlap.

The Nexus Exchange was inspired by the current research being done by the compost-engineering program at Penn State. The site program includes an Exchange Center and Transit Hub. Site users bring biodegradable material to the Exchange Center where it is used to produce energy in the form of biofuel and electricity.
With the Center County Transportation Authority changing to methane bio-fuel as a standard fuel source for all county busses, this center would provide a local and led resources in order to fuel the busses. Electricity produced by the process would fuel Zip-Car stations for visitors

The Up-Cycled Childrens Pavilion
Site PlanWater Collection Utilities
The prompt for the following competition was to design a sustainable childrens pavilion for a State College, PA elementary school. My pavilion is intended to be used as a tool for sustainable education and environmental enrichment. The design includes the pavilion as well as a garden for new plant for drinking, and plant growth. The water used for drinking is stored in removable pickle barrel cisterns, and the water for plant growth is pumped to the new garden adjacent to the pavilion. The design empha-sizes the concept of water collection by exposing all water collection utilities on the interior and faade.
Design Build: Transformable Wading Pool Spring 2011
The program for the project was to design a 3 by 3 by 6 privatespace for our client that could be transformed into a public space. The client for the following project requested a space in which she could feel like she was at the beach. The private function of the space was to included a seat and shading for the client. The public function included wading pool, which could accommodate up to 3 guests. The project incorporates basic sustainability concepts such as material and water reuse. I individually consturcted the nal design at full scale.

Water Re-useWater can be stored in the water tank (labeled W) to be re-used. When closed, the water tank serves as a seat for the user.
Material Re-useReused materials include: Conduit, Tarp, Plywood,Door Hinges
Design Build: Penn State Centerfor Sustainability Terrace Spring 2011
For the following project all students enrolled in Arch 132 participated in the annual design build project. Our assignmentwas to design and construct a terrace in the Penn StateUniversity Center for Sustainability. Only recycled materials were used in the construction. I was part of a group whos responsibility was to construct a table for the terrace. Our table was constructed mainly from recycled steel, and concrete with glass aggregate. All glass was taken from recycled bottles. Construction was a group eort, however the following hand drawn construction documents are a result of my individual eorts.

Gesture to ArtifactPresented at the 2013 AIAS QUAD ConferenceSpring 2013
Gesture to Artifact is a processing based 3D modeling interface that allows users to use hand motion to manipulate digital objects, and output their objects for digital fabrication.
When developing the interface I researched the motion capturing capabilities of the Microsoft Kinect. Using the Kinects skeleton tracking feature I was able to map the users hand location and use its coordinates as variables in my processing script.
The script I developed reads the users hand coordi-nates and uses them to deform the input object (plane or cylinder) (1). The interface allows the user visualize their object as its being deformed (2). It creates the illusion that the user is sculpting the object with their hands. The user also has control over other parameters associated with the deformation such as strength and range. When the user nishes the manipulation, the object is exported so it can be prepped for fabrication. No processing knowledge is necessary to operate the interface.
A grasshopper denition is paired with the application to create fabrication les for the users object. The object is fabricated by means of sectional contouring (2D section cuts are generated at a selected interval). The denition allows the user to select the material, contouring direction, and contouring interval. Through the processing-grasshopper workow, the user to easily develop and fabricate multiple iterations.
The processing script establishes a depth threshold for deformation. Once the users hand passes the depth threshold, the object begins to deform.
