Architecture | Habitat for Humanities

In the month of June and July 2011, I volunteered at the Habitat for Humanities in Buffalo to build affordable houses for residents. We began at the foundation of the house and built the platform of girders and floor joists

Architecture | Gradient Folding Pattern

This project was to explore different ways of manipulating flat sheet metals into a stronger component for building facades. Learning from my previous project “My House. My Rules.”, I investigated how folding paper techniques can be transfered into folding metal

Architecture & Physical Computing | Reactive Poncho

People have different levels of personal space and often times, these levels are violated. When the levels are violated, people do not address these intrusions due to the lack of comfortability. The reactive poncho allows the human being to address these

Architecture & Physical Computing | My Space. My Rules.

In a public environment, people tend to be too loud or quiet and are not aware of their surroundings. The table becomes active and commands people to be quiet or talk by a shuuuu or talk sound when certain decibel thresholds
