Cum Laude

Capstone (Dwelling in Wellbeing: Social Housing from its Interconnector Environment)
[Individual project. Used: AutoCAD, SketchUP, Artlantis, VRay, CS6: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign]
The aim was to transform the public housing standards in PR, in order to provide a low income home that offered welfare to its residents and avoided the stigma of being a dangerous and therefore marginalized community. The Capstone project worked on design strategies that contributed to the health, safety, comfort, image, accessibility and climate control. It served as a magnet of urban activity that was filtered and echoed into the different corners of the complex. The various activities started with the integration of the community on the ground level and progressed on the privacy scale until reaching the domestic environment. (See Project 03).

Relevant courses include:
• Interior Architecture & Design • Construction Details (Adv. Design)
• Urbanism (Adv. Design) • Housing (Advanced Design)
