I and my team explored the properties of working with plaster. We designed a form that appears as if it can be stretched and manipulated but is solid. The form was designed using Grasshopper and took a lot of exploration, methods/a lot of trial and error with different fabrication methods to take our design out of the computer and into the real word.

Autodesk BUILD Space
Summer 2017

I and a team of CMU students were commissioned to create a piece for the Autodesk BUILD Space's main conference area using incremental metal forming. The piece was designed in Grasshopper and displays the forming technique by extruding flat panels to create connections between the planes.

Along with Nitesh Sridhar, I oversaw the programming and ran the robot. This project took 10 working days to design and fabricate. It still hangs in the BUILD Space office and, in September 2017, it was displayed at the Boston Society of Architects.

SoA Pavilion 2018

This project was part of my College's annual tradition of Booth during Carnival It was a temporary structure. It was designed and built with a team of architecture students at all levels. Planning and prefabricating took place over 4 weeks, it was erected in about 4 days. We CNCed and resin-filled old doors for the exterior to display the logo of our architecture school. I oversaw designing, coordinating, and building the seating and tables inside. The benches were based on mid-century modern slated benches.

This project focuses on bringing affordable housing back to the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, in New York City. Over the past 10 years, the once working-class neighborhood has become a luxury town, filled with starchitect towers. This is due to the incredibly popular High Line Park. This project breaks the exclusionary nature of the area by putting low-income housing right on the High Line.
