University of Cincinnati | Bachelors of Science in Interior Design 2013

      I attended the University of Cincinnati from 2007 - 2013.  I initially entered the school of Design, Architecture. Art, and Planning (DAAP) in the hopes of obtaining a Bachelors of Architecture.  As I progressed in the program I made the transfer to the Interior Design program.  I am interested in applying the Science of Interior Design to spaces in order to create intrigue and pleasurable spaces to those who occupy them the most.

 

I believe that Interior Design has a medicinal value, and a humanitarian mission at its core.  The following works are the result of my Studio Courses at the University of Cincinnati.

 

INDUS | Senior Capstone Project | 1.13 - 4.13

Indus - Opensourced Endemic Arcology to Provide New Life to Abandoned Industrial Districts.

     The culmination of my undergraduate studies at University is included in Indus.  The Capstone was included in UC's DAAP Works 2013 Exhibition in April of that year.  

INDUS Program | Capstone Charrette | 6.12 - 8.12

Indus (Old Strategy) - Bringing new life into one of Detroit's abandoned industrial infrastructures by combining Building Integrated Agriculture with a space to consume the produce created.

      The generative product of 7 weeks in the Summer of 2012  laid the ground work for my senior Capstone Studio.

Sephora's Beauty Bomber | PAVE Competition Entry | 9.11 - 12.11

Beauty Bomber - A repurposed 40's era Boat Plane to be utilized as a high visibility retail pop-up and brand tool.

      This retail studio entailed entry into the 2012 PAVE competition in one of two categories.  Pop-up retail or in-store fixture.  I went with the pop-up retail category in order to explore a radical idea of a highly sensorial element to find inclusion within the luxury events of the America's Cup.  The 2013 Cup race will be in the San Francisco bay.  LVMH, the parent company of Sephora, owns a massive portion of the rights in the Americas Cup and Louis Vuitton Series that leads up to the race. 

The Modern Monaco | Hospitality Studio | 9.10 - 12.10

Modern Monaco - Intended to be a Highroller experience at the Monte Carlo, Las Vegas.

      The Modern Monaco is a Highroller experience meant for construction in the Monte Carlo, Las Vegas.  The result is found with technological innovations paired with aesthetics described by Playboy articles scribed in the 1960's and 70's.  Our class worked and presented with FRCH Design in Cincinnati, a local firm tasked with the actual renovation of the Monte Carlo.

Fifth Third Bank | Corporate Studio | 4.10 - 6.10

5/3 Bank Concept - Open office and community education space for Cincinnati.

5/3 Bank Concept - Open office and community education space for Cincinnati.

      The Office Concept for Fifth Third bank was devised to bring trust back into the institution in a time where many had lost trust in the banking system as a whole.  The space revolves around the idea of transparency and comfort.  This studio took place before I had actually worked in an office place and therefore the result is quite far from a realistic idea.

Campus Arrangement | Tectonics Studio | 1.10-3.10

Tectonics Studio - Architectural studio to introduce the  concepts of tectonic theory.

Tectonics Studio - Architectural studio to introduce the  concepts of tectonic theory.

      My last architectural studio was focused on the idea of Tectonic Theory.  By utilizing the three elements central to the theory, we were asked to create an arrangement without a program.  In the last two weeks of the quarter we were then assigned the program of a School Campus.  Working with different woods and paper I assembled a grid and strata focused around a 3D Printed central element.  The end result was an experiment in scale, material, and craft.
