About 

I believe architecture can bring people and communities together through context-driven, environmentally responsible design. I have previous experience in residential, hospitality, mixed-use high rise and healthcare projects. I have a strong passion for architecture and take any criticism of my work positively to work towards getting the best output possible.

Second Prize USC Healthcare Competition 2019, 2nd Place

The project was presented to the AIA Healthcare Committee 2019 in January. The project was supervised by Victor Regnier (FAIA, AIA) at USC School of Architecture with participating jurors such as Edward M. Einy of HKS inc. , Ernest F. Cirangle of HOK and Michael Lehrer of Lehrer Architects.

The project is titled The Interlace as it explores ways of merging the site
and the building to create a fluid non-building inspired by the contours and
themes from the original park that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
The eastern perimeter of the site faces issues such as homeless encroaching, poor maintenance, drug abuse, and vandalism. The study of
older Barnsdall Park acknowledged that regarding the current site with
original contours are beneficial not just for the users of the rehabilitation
center but also for the local community that needs a place to heal.
The design proposed the roof imagined as a walking
the ramp that is an extension of the topography connecting
the North-South Planes and East-West connection.
