Lab Perspective Study

I had been going back and forth on building materials and realized that I needed to create an illustration that would allow me to visually compare options within the contextual setting. The form is more or less finalized, but I have had trouble envisioning exactly...

Lab Section Studies

I have been continuing to develop my research lab concept and specifically I have been focusing on some sectional qualities of the design. Since time is limited these days, I don’t always build elaborate models of each idea. In this case, I cut a section through...

Introducing Portfolio Volume 04

I am excited to finally introduce Portfolio Volume 04. As I have said many times before, nothing beats being able to see work in printed form, especially after seeing some of these images for over two years only on the screen. This has been a long time coming and the...

Portfolio Vol. 2

Developed in 2007, this was my second portfolio created after grad school. The layouts are relaxed with the text playing an important role on many of the pages. Except for the thesis spreads, each project uses no more than 2 spreads to describe the project requiring a denser use of text and images in the layout
