Canopies Resorts



Canopies is a multi-use habitat. Made with prefabricated modules, the design creates resort style habitats that morph to their environment. The elevated spaces create a small footprint so they can be erected in practically any location without the need to clear land before construction. They can meander and occupy dense forests, unused urban rooftops, rocky [...]

M.A.A.E. (Mars Artificial Atmospheric Envelope)



This design was submitted to the America Makes Challenge hosted by NASA and Makers Faire.

Within the center of the site, an educational forecourt space is implemented to promote learning about the effects of lung cancer to the public. In parallel, the patients that inhabit [...]

International Living Future Institute: South-East Headquarters



A project for my third year in the architecture program at KSU, this proposal for the International Living Future Institute's 'South-East Headquarters' took a stance of sustainability from the start. Utilizing the large southern exposure of the site, a slim, linear floor plate maximized natural daylighting and potential for solar power. Incorporating all seven of [...]
