ARCH TRIUMPH SKY PAVILION COMPETITION

Situated in London, the sky pavilion was an international design competition to define a pavilion and the sky.   This pavilion emphasized London’s dreary skies and showed there was depth beyond their flat grey skies.  From a straight perspective from the busiest street, the pavilion projects just a flat square surface.  But after an interaction with the pavilion through different angles and parts of the site, the box breaks apart into pixels.  It begins to frame different spaces and parts of the sky.  Being within this space, certain pixels start to fade out depending on how the sky is that day, and thus becomes something different each time the sky changes.


16TH STREET DENVER COURTYARD MARRIOT EXTENSION

The project was an addition to an existing hotel located in Downtown Denver.  It’s main concept was to create an outdoor courtyard area that drew in pedestrians through a variety of outdoor/indoor markets and public spaces.  It emphasizes the updated aquatic center, which was the client's main desire, and acts as a landmark that could be seen from every point inside and outside the hotel. (Worked in conjunction with Jason Patel).


SUPPLEMENTAL LIBRARY

The supplemental library defines the relationship between writing and speech.  In this case, there is no clear boundary where the two end.  The library is redefined through spatial experiences that ‘speak’ to the user as they experience each part of the library.  Transparent and opaque spaces lead the user to question whether these spaces are inside/out, here nor there, if there is a beginning to an end.

POINT LOBOS VISITOR CENTER

The Point Lobos experience is about connecting the visitor to its natural environment.  The center conveys this through a directed hierarchical temporal sequence as the visitor progresses towards dynamic sensory spaces.  This is manifested through the facility sitting as a series of moments between the forest and water.
