Hello Midtown! v2.0

This is the second generation of student works for the Hello Midtown community in Denver Co.  Developed with the support of Norris Design and Brookfield Residential and engineered (in part) by the Advanced Manufacturing Institute at Kansas State University, we were able to develop a […]

Capture House – Revit Teaching Project

The built environment has an incredible power to control behavior through thoughtful design.  This has always been true: whether it is in regards to the placement of milk in a grocery store (a common item, placed deep in the store drawing you in), storefront design […]

Medicine X – Guest Speaker at Stanford Medical Clinic

Based on the work in 3D printed prosthetic skins and my collaborations with both veterinary medicine and anthropology I was invited by Dr Larry Chu of Stanford University to give a presentation 3D printing as it relates to the future medical practices and education.  I […]

Parametric Shoe Design Project

For this second year undergraduate project, students engaged in the design/development of a shoe design that accommodated for a both style and performance, selecting between to options with the designer identifying with a particular gender.  The first option explored the design of an athletic shoe, […]
