Award for design, charrette, & exhibition at MOMA PS1

ARCHITECTURE; AWARD WINTER '15

I was selected as one of 150 finalists from 11,000 to exhibit my design work in Miami and at MOMA PS1. While in Miami I, along with the twelve other finalists in design, was tasked with building an architectural charrette in three days. I was specifically instructed to create an interactive spatial intervention that would demonstrate to passerbys the artform of ballet. The first day I spent researching the physical location for the intervention, taking note of the building layout, the shadows cast by the buildings throughout day, and the regions of pedestrian traffic. Over the next two days I used foamcore, dowels, and LEDs to create a physical representation of my design. And on the final day I presented my work to a board of architects and judges and displayed the charrette at a public exhibit in Miami.
