boyle heights, CA
Prompted to design a youth center to inspire and cultivate children's interest in the arts, this design serves to allow for a space for students to learn in a safe, but interesting environment. Located in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, the focus of this design was to create an effective, but innovative form of security.
The screen surrounding the structure was a solution to creating an open environment, allowing room for the students to safely play outdoors, while still remaining in an enclosed, secure space.
Softwares used: autocad, rhino, laser cutter, and photoshop
Screen was constructed and designed with intent of each cut circle being placed at an angle in response to maintaining a well shaded environment
Prompted to design a research center for students open to the public, this space must include an exhibit, library, classrooms, and residential spaces. As a solution, a space that allows for multiple roof terraces was designed, optimizing public appeal.
Softwares used: autocad, photoshop, and watercolor by hand
This design was completed during a 6 month study abroad program in Rome, Italy
