Meant to evoke reflection, both literally and figuratively. It is a space where people may feel sheltered. They are in a space apart from the rest of the world, but without forgetting its presence. Everything around them is reflected in their eyes, but the intermittent nature of the glossy metal members allows for a constantly alternating sense of temporality and space: the here and the there are simultaneously felt. What is within the pavilion is not existent without what is without.

Analysis of the Eliasson and thorsen Serpentine pavilion
This project aims at taking the front façade of the Rietveld Schröder House and extracting a 3-D model based solely on the elevation and it's many possibilities. The model I designed was one based on the idea of taking what looks like flat planes from one view and extruding them at angles so that as soon as you are no longer looking straight on, you have surprising slants, an idea inspired by Eisenman's axinometric houses.
I find the play of light particularly beautiful.
Architectonic Head abstraction
I used 123d Catch as a tool to create a 3d mesh of my own head to import to rhino. I was then able to use this mesh to abstract simplified forms that together would show the shape of a head but also resemble architectural spatial divisions along with the play of perspective through angles and spacing between "background" and "foreground."
