  • 4. STORE FRONT PERSPECTIVE POP UP STORE - Fall 2011 Course: Studio V - Interior Design Professor: Kim Martin Date: Fall - 2011 The task for this project was to translate a company’s image, mission, and corporate culture to a temporary retail space. It required us to interpret the brand, conceptually design store fixtures, and methods that would effect the consumer experience targeted towards men. Bonobos, an online-based store known for their pants, was the precedent study for this design. The concept of this design inspires customers to build a self image. The design integrates construction and industrial-based materials and objects to remind the user of the space that he needs to build, or construct, the image he wishes others to be perceived. The project follows a four-step process, called the consumer experience. It consists of attracting, inspiring and informing how the customer will purchase their items. In addition, the quality brand name and store image reassures buyers they made the right decision. The logo, a hammer and needle, are the basic tools to customizing shoes and clothes to fit any style for anyone who is trying to construct their own personal image. DESIGN BRIEF / 02

Large 55” vertical touchscreens will serve as a alternative resource for shoppers who enjoy their personal space. The monitors will be interactive for shoppers, virtually customizing outfits just by swiping their fingure. Shoppers can either self-check out at the monitor or at the main desk. Quality packaging will instill confidence in customers; allowing customers to feel reassured. Ambient light fixture designed as a revolving construction fan to reinforce the conceptual idea of customers building a self image. Changing rooms have coil-up metal doors that slide up and down. As an addition to the store identity project, students were required to design packaging and a logo to help brand the new store image. This mainly served as the “reassurance” aspect of the consumer experience. The design of the packaging uses OSB (oriented strand board) as the lid. This is to strengthen the conceptual idea of the store image. The packaging allows the customer to go home feeling they bought a quality item. Technology played another major factor when it came to designing store image. Students were asked to think how technology could help serve customers outside the store . BRANDING

  • 10. FRONT ENTRY PERSPECTIVE Eight week project where students were required to brainstorm and design a six story library that would be built at the corner of Ludlow and Ormond Rd., in Clifton Ohio. The assignment called for us to think about program, how people would circulate around the spaces and ultimately why materials were chosen to fit the concept. After the site visit, our class gained a clear understanding of how important the library was to the locals of the small town. Some even went as far as to claim that it was the only thing that brought the community together. It was this idea that developed my concept. The design consists of a 12 ft. wide load bearing wall on the east side that holds the suspended floors into place. The structural components of the library would be nothing but CMU walls, steel cable and bookshelves. Suggesting that the books are what hold the whole place together. The idea to suspend the six floors 12 ft. off the foundation giving the visitors a bold statement upon entry and even opens up a space to serve as a patio.

WATER PAVILION - Spring 2014 Course: Graduate Level II Studio Professor: Murali Paranandi Date: Spring - 2014 DESIGN BRIEF / 12 The Moroccan culture is reflected in every aspect of its tents. When you step inside a Moroccan tent, you are not just stepping into a form of shelter but a piece or Moroccan tradition. This assignment was to research the Moroccan culture and design a pavilion for the city of Tangier. Historically speaking, the country had been conquered by many different countries for decades at a time. It was through all these exchanges in leaders that the city had developed one of the most culturally diverse cities in Africa. Despite all the changes the city underwent, the one architectural component that stayed consistent through the past was the use of tents. The pavilion recognizes this and celebrates its architectural tradition through tensile structure and steel framing.

Jam nut on other end and snapped into place with a cap covering the connecting member. This serves as one of the components to the tensile membrane structure, or roof, of the pavilion. The majority of fabric structures derive their strength from their doubly curved shape. By forcing the fabric to take on double-curvature, the fabric gains sufficient stiffness to withstand the loads it is subjected to. Cables as well help reinforce the shape of the building. Structural Form Structural Details Tensile Forms FormZ simulation of objects in tension Tensile architecture was chosen as the structural membrane of this design in order to capture the traditional utilization of tents in Morocco. The complexity suggest a more modern take on of the simple architecture of tents by introducing new forms. / 14 WATER PAVILION - Spring 2014 Site Model

  • 18. “Can’t Catch Me Canopy“ Air Exhibit This assignment required students to research how children k-12 can improve upon the development of their cognitive skills. Students were assigned an age range and then were required to design an exhibit for that range. The exhibit would need to teach the user of the space something that involved the environment. CHILDREN’S EXHIBIT - Spring 2014 Course: Interior Design Studio Professor: Kim Burke Date: Fall- 2014 DESIGN BRIEF / 16 This exhibit, designed for 7th and 8th graders, explores the nature of animals and their habitats through an interactive scavenger hunt. Children will be able to move between the three spaces while they try to find clues using iPads that wirelessly connect to various devices. These devices use augmented reality through a camera, which allows animals to talk and make animations once clicked on by the user using their iPad. This allows the user to learn about whatever it is they are looking for in a self-engaging way. The first of the three challenges is called the “Cant Catch Me Canopy” Air Exhibit. The canopy design combines indoor with outdoor spaces in which the central hub blurs the line of transition between interior and exterior spaces. Kids will be able to fly these drones outside as well. Where other “Easter Eggs” will be hidden for their scavenger hunt. This will alleviate crowded spaces in case the exhibit is overwhelmed with users inside. The second exhibit teaches children about desert and nocturnal animals. Again, the space is designed to get the kids moving between spaces and engage in their imagination and curiosity to learn all while gaining the technological knowledge of how to use in schools tools such as the iPad. Virtual animals will be burrowed underneath the floor and the young adventurers will have to use night vision to find their clues! The final design, called the “Sunken and Go Seek” water exhibit, takes on an aquarium approach. The user of the space is surrounded by glass walls in which the outside space is full of water. In this challenge, children will need to connect wirelessly to a submarine using their iPad and look for the virtual animals that are swimming around them.

  • 22. Plaster Sculpture These works were done during my years leading into the School of Creative Arts. Drawing I, introduced contour lines, figure form and composition while Drawing II continued that level of thinking with color. This small collection of artwork is mostly done through pencil and charcoal. Throughout my years as an art student, I focused my studies on utilizing variations in line weights and value to convey depth. During my second year I got into anatomical drawing, which allowed me to hone my skills in proportion, composition and detail. Widow is an example of some of that skill set. While Flip Cup experimented with combining complementary colors. McFatty’s took on more of a monochromatic approach with the color red. Listless Lily was my first drawing and shows simple line work to show depth, weight and detail. My Twin Brother and I is a representational self portrait of my relationship with my twin brother. The shoes represent how we frequently cross paths while the hammers symbolize our disputes that we get into from time to time. The coat hanger and sock signals that above everything else, we hang by each other.
