This section is called 3D because it has a third dimension of time and space. The architecture projects are about space. The videos are about communication and interaction over time. Both allow for an experience centered around discovery. In architecture, it’s the compression, tension, lightness, darkness, temperature, sound, movement of space, etc that creates intrigue. In the communication and interaction projects, it’s the connection of the viewer with a larger idea.

Concept contains miscellaneous concepts from architecture school and/or professional work that never came to completion yet still remain significant in this body of work.

The Bathhouse was the first architecture project in school that motivated and challenged me more than I had ever been before. The site exists in Hot Wells, LA where there was—in the early 1900s—a bathhouse. I was asked to conceptually redesign it. I spent months theorizing about materials, space, light, site, massing, etc. Then I learned to portray these theories with charcoal as a media to design a building.


The William M. Colmer Visitors Center and Park Headquarters is an educational center that was destroyed in Hurricane Katrina. As a fifth year architecture student, I was asked to redesign the building using the first three design phases: Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Documents. The new facility would increase Southern Louisiana wildlife education for visitors. It would also be LEED Certified and have a museum-like quality with a focus on the ecosystem surrounding it.


The Hatha Yoga Center for Wellness was conceptually designed in Downtown Baton Rouge to inspire a community of Yogis to ignite and expand their practice. The spatial interaction of the physical building with its yoga practitioners would provide a chaotic space in which challenging yoga practice could occur. This was my final project in architecture school and continues to linger in my thoughts and inspire my design process.


We Are Risen is a side project created in the Spring of 2008 for the Risenchurch community in Santa Monica, CA. Every fifth Sunday the community holds an artist’s service in place of the normal service. Community members make artwork around a common theme and display it for that Sunday’s service.  A friend, Graeme Lowry, and I made a video around the theme: We Are Risen. The main concept was to visualize the community as One. 


Word. is a simple interactive video that describes the column grid. It is my first venture with Adobe AfterEffects so it is a straightforward and simple one-minute video.


Information Space is the visualization of the information space of the website, http://harmenliemburg.nl. Through the language and style of Harmen Liemburg, I displayed his website and his work in this four-minute Adobe AE video.


Service Meets Social is the Microsoft and Motorola sponsored design challenge for Graduate Design Studio II at Carnegie Mellon University. Aliya Baptista, Cheryl Templeton, Eric Spaulding, Stephanie Meier, and myself designed the product GURU, a tool that connects teens to creative professionals to help explore the unfamiliar creative professions. GURU was chosen to be presented at the Microsoft Design Expo 2010.
