Introduction to concepts, fundamental design elements, and systems of order that inform two and three dimensional design. Principles of proportion and scale with an emphasis on the relationship between the human body and three-dimensional space are present. The refinement of the design process is also emphasized.

Precedent Analysis- Case Study House 1950

Analyzes and examines circulation between exterior and interior spaces, and the skin (glass vs. solid).

Artist Patio House

Patio house on a sloped Miami site for my client, artist Sarah Sze. This house was for a family of four; two adults, two children and occasional guests. Must provide areas to sleep, shower, eat, cook, entertain, make art, exhibit art, storage and a one car parking space. Site must also contain one large garden, one smaller garden, an exterior shower and a swimming pool. All of this must be designed with the artist in mind.
