University of Pennsylvania, MArch, Architecture

My academic work investigates sustainability through a less conventional approach. I am interested in not only how a building performs, but also explores how one interacts with said performance, and, in effect, their environment. I see energy as a poetic device, with its own rhythms and effects, and my research strives to integrate the dynamism of this local ecology with my own obsessions in digital formalism. The formalism I speak of is itself informed by the local conditions, as are the programmatic relationships which develop simultaneously, leading towards a more holistic approach towards sustainable design.
