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

DESIGN DETAIL

Screen was constructed and designed with intent of each cut circle being placed at an angle in response to maintaining a well shaded environment

Softwares used: autocad, photoshop, and watercolor by hand
