    to show the design intents, in my case, a formal ascent to view the landmarks of Columbus, IN.

  • The Kamamama Prairie was a studio collaboration and parts of the project

    were divided into separate groups. My group worked on the infrastructure of

    the project, including diagrams, and I worked on visualization after the

    studio was over.

    One of the earlier design projects I completed, my intent was to disrupt to repetitive city block

  • Breakbreak the repetition and bore of the city street, a folding sheet creates open and closed dynamic spaces for the center

    The table was modeled in Rhino to create a template for our cuts in the wood shop. Modifications were made after construction to

    stabilize the desk/desks; such as the tension cables to provide

    lateral bracing and table leaf connectors to provide a flat

    surface.

    The studio community table was a collaborative effort

    with fellow classmate, Ganesh Raman. The purpose was to design something that would

    enhance collaboration during the semester.

    The post-occupancy evaluation involved a team of students using a building as regular occupants. The intent is to provide the client with

    issues, opportunities, and proposals.

    The partner I worked with was Sergey Kahn and we were assigned to the kitchen/cafe. We proposed to a renovation to create a more central, lively,

    and successful space.

    The circulation, or how customers walkthrough the cafe, is important to the functionality and efficiency of the cafe. Diagrammed above is an example of how people can enter the cafe closer to the entrance as well as change how the vending machines, if necessary, are seen. The vending machines would no longer be seen as you enter the JCC but rather, as you wait in line to purchase an order.

    The following proposal is a further inverstigation in how fluidity can be achieved in the cafe by changing how one enters the cafe space from the main entrance of the JCC. The vending machines and shelving system are placed in line to display the credit. As you exit from the cafe, the coffee fixings and miscellaneous items, such as utensils or napkins, are on a separate counter. There is also a direct line of axis that leads to the courtyard.

    JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER - POST-OCCUPANCY

  • P R O P O S A L S

    The proposed design involve a new fountain with seating attached to it. There would also be a small fire in the center that is reminiscent of the fire symbol throughout the JCC.

    Trellises provided shaded walkways around the existing paved walkway as well as a new shaded seating area in each part.

    The cafe would also extend more permanently outside with a glass shading to give shading to people in a more predictable manner.
