As part of my thesis research into the past, present and future realities of Detroit housing, I have started to use representational devises as a means of speculation. The current work seeks out opportunities, not in the present or future, but embedded in the past.
This current work explores possibilities for what I am calling functionalDETERIORATIONS which are those operations that seek to reframe distress as additive or generative to architecture instead of subtractive.
this is ongoing research and their will be much more coming, but for now some images...

I am a graduate student and an entrepreneur at the University of Michigan Taubman College where my studies are focused on leveraging design ideas across multiple scales and platforms. Meeting at the intersection between design, tectonics and fabrication, I am continually exploring how a design idea can navigate complex material and production systems and evolve into fully realized architectural artifacts.
