I believe that Architecture is a careful analysis of asking questions and research to apply those facts to start a rapid procession of design collaboration into a final nurtured design.
I recently Graduated with a Bachelors degree in Environmental Design emphasis in Architecture from The University of Colorado at Boulder in December 2010.
Ian's Travel Blog on Archinect:
I would like to start a blog about my upcoming travels to Rio de Janiero, Brazil. I am going to visually document and narrate my adventures around the city and local areas. I really want to share my findings with the architectural community and help document what people dont see in the websites online. I will be looking at the city from a macro to micro view all the time, taking into account the minute details to the overall city.

Emphasis in Architecture
The Pavilion at Laurel Village serves as the heart of Colorado State University’s large - scale re-envisioning of the northern residential district. The energy of an academic spine was connected to this district with the goal of creating long-term viability for the area. The 34.3 million dollar Laurel Village project focuses its energy around the 4.2 million dollar Pavilion, a student “collaboratory” building that creates a distinct and unique center to Laurel Village.
Designed to serve the surrounding new 4.8 acre, 615-bed Laurel Village, the 11,500gsf Pavilion is home to a student gallery, mailroom, campus ‘Ecoleaders’ office space, classroom space, student-led bike repair shop, and numerous types of lounge and study spaces. Its functions make it a resource for both students and faculty and create an environment that presents users with different ways to engage and learn, both individually and socially. Features such as a sloped roof, an outdoor performance green, and a modern day Agora (or gathering space) encourage year-round activity.
The building responds to the site in both form and function while also serving operational needs, and employing visible, environmentally aware strategies and structures. Passive heating and cooling elements create a comfortable physical environment that is environmentally responsive. Since its completion, it has become the first of building on campus to receive LEED Platinum designation and is utilized as a recruitment tool for the university.

Top Fourth Year Studio Project - Ruwais Cultural Center, Award
In my last undergraduate studio, our studio teamed up with Architecture Firm RNL in Denver to design a Cultural Center for their new harbor front Urban Planning project located in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE. I designed a full mixed-use site that incorporates the cultural center which holds a performance art academy and the museum with retail. As well as the naturally cooled Residential tower which is fully mixed use as well. The buildings were also designed to naturally cool and ventilate the people inside.
