I am fascinated by the concept of source. A source refers to a number of phenomena from which one learns, receives, or is guided or controlled. While working towards my degree I pursued many internship opportunities such as working with Architects Without Boarders to design a rainforest museum in the Cloud Forest of Peru. The museum was designed according to full life-cycle analysis, with the intention that the construction would be performed by the locals using local materials. This is an attempt to engage the local population and educate them on the importance of sustainable income. I also had the fortune to spend a semester in Turkey where I combined my architectural studies with cultural explorations. One project used digital mapping algorithms to analyze the programmatic nature of the historic district in Izmir, and use this information to design a building that related to the context programmatically as well as aesthetically.
