My workshop studio will be looking at biomimicry concepts this summer, ultimately with the goal of applying principles derived from nature to a project to be built in Indianapolis. Here’s one of the posters I had to put together for discussion today.
In architecture considered as a material practice, materialization as a concept is transformed from its traditional meaning as the translation of an a priori design representation to its material condition; it is now transformed to become one of the sources of the inception of designs. The rediscovery that we can design in material has been a source of the reformulation of a digital praxis in the last decade. What traditionally was the material terminus of the design process has become a new beginning.

Final piece for my Advanced Graphics class. Put in my best effort on this because I didn’t have time (unfortunately) to work on a portfolio spread of the work from this class. I like the result.
If you want, you can grab the really big version.
I developed the following portfolio last year as I was seeking an internship position. It did the trick! I have new work, however, and it needs an update.
Threw this together last week–together with the above and my grad school application portfolio, it helped me land the graduate assistantship I will have this fall.
