  • Repetitive Patterns: Screen Systems

    The use of magnifying technology has revealed the structural complexity of geological, organic, and synthetic materials on the Macro and Micro scales. These structures are based upon a repetition of cellular units that transform relative to structural stresses applied to it. Designers such as Gyorgy Kepes and Erwin Hauer have studied the relationship between modular systems found in nature and applied the patterns to visual studies and architectural screen systems in the 1960's. The research of our work will be extended into the contemporary situation where digital technology affords a new level of formal complexity and tectonic intricacy to be explored and fabricated.

  • Fluid Forms: Liquid Topographies

    The notion of fluidity will be explored, a natural process that produces patterns of flow that reveal how different properties of matter transform between liquid and solid over time. The focus of our experimentation will be how the liquid and solid aspects of the project can inform the design of...


  • ACSA Aqua Competition

    Before the building design of the Urban Aquatic Center is initiated our studio has been focusing on developing digital modeling strategies using advanced 3d Software(Rhino) as a tool to simulate formal and organizational systems observed through visual research of Fluid Form, Repetitive Pattern...


  • Enter... The Competition

    So the semester is well underway, our studio and two other studios at UHCoA are working on the ACSA Aquatic Center Competition. Its very exciting to know that we will be entering this competion and hopefully the best one will win. Its a good fill in for your resume :) ... If anyone else is working...


  • An introduction of UH CoA

    The Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture, perennially considered in the top 3 architecture schools in the state of Texas. The school received a perfect 37/37 in NAAB accreditation, and enjoys a 5-year accreditation certificate. It was the first architecture school in the state of Texas to...
