Research interests

I break down complex systems found in our built environment into pieces identifiable as archetypical ideas. From these archetypical ideas, I create hands-on experiences that enable tactile memory, meaning, and context through location in culture and geography. Through my work, I aspire to create new paths of understanding by exploring deeper the iterative process of making. Read and write your 3D world! Research interests include how to engage people with their built environment through:
