During a 16-week design investigation and future-planning strategies studio, the relationship between Marcel Breuer's Bell Banner and the St. John's campus was explored.
Through analyzing the campus as a whole, the importance of placement became the main driver for my project. Understanding the importance behind its placement, a decision to move the banner, elongating the church processional and creating a larger public area was explored.
Over the course of an eight week period, students worked in teams of five to think creatively and intentionally about what a dental complex encompasses.
Through learning users and occupants wants/needs of the space, this design promotes and allows doctors, dentists, healthcare professionals and staff to increase efficiency and thrive in their work environment.
Understanding history and integrating human-centered design, an 8-week model-making intensive studio proposed a new way of thinking about a public building in the historic North Loop area of Minneapolis.
Through analyzing human behavior and interpreting where people are most attracted in a building -- lighting was the main aspect of the exterior design and brought forward a design proposition for the historic neighborhood was proposed.
