Pollution impacts everyone everyday. This semester I got the chance to explore the world of Arduino in an attempt to create something that would help people be safer in harsh environments. The Air Aware mask filters the air breathed by the wearer as well as monitors the air around. AA can detect trace amounts of volatile organic compounds or VOCs and many gases to one, protect the user and two, to warn them and those […]
Scaling up from sixty-fourth to a quarter inch model is one of the most challenging fabrication processes I have ever under taken. The design, choice of materials and the planning that was required just to get to building was overwhelming. Overcoming obstacles along the way I reached the final product that matched my original parti of void, solid, void. This balance in design is something I try to achieve in every project.
The Elkins Lookout is a pavilion that gives its surrounding forest a new perspective for visitors. Using a module of varying scales, the space filters light, as well as elevates the adventurer using an extended path up to the trees. When interconnected, the modules create a cylindrical form that is perforated to frame views. These punched views give lookout points for people to observe all the wildlife and nature in Elkins Park.
