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 […]

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, […]

Pendant Light Restaurant Fixture

This two week product project was developed around a conceptual design for a pendant light over a bar height table.  Students were directed to explore inspiration that would connect users to the food through the environment.  3D printing and advanced digital modelling were used to […]

Prosthetic Skin for Double Amputee

Taking the previous research in 3D scanning and parametric design farther, Prosthesis 2.0 explores the application of digital fabrication and parametric design in the development and manufacturing of custom prosthetic skins. This work was developed with a prosthetist, who advised on the weight and strength dimensions of the fabrications which were then negotiated […]

Ratchet Strap Furniture

This one week project was designed to develop the students full scale prototyping skills.  Students were given one sheet of OSB and one ratchet strap to develop a piece of furniture for fabrication via CNC milling.  The first day explored concept development and non-scalar model […]

Exhibit Design Studio Project

This design studio project engaged the students in developing a 10’x20’x8′ exhibit for a company/product of their choosing.  Students were required to develop mood boards demonstration their understanding of the brand of the company/product in order to frame the developed construction.  Simultaneously students were introduced […]

Revit Robot

The Revit Robot is an exploration in getting students to coordinate between software and also engage in developing more advanced assemblies for interior and architecture.  The project explored the notions of product at the architectural scale.  Students engaged in developing View Templates which could be […]

Tiny House (Student Work)

This project was the first semester of the second year undergraduate design studio (Fall 2015) within the IAPD program at Kansas State.  The work was completed after an introductory project (exploring Path, Procession and Place)  within the residential studio.  The project engaged the students in the […]

Stringitecture 2.0

The Stringitecture exercise is two part project done in 2015 for the Grandparents University Event at Kansas State University, the first is an exercise in understanding the process of assembling simple weaving constructions around a cardboard frame (about 20 min).  The second part using these […]

Economy of Line

This is some student work resulting from my digital instruction at K-State.  This was meant to help students develop a product rendering technique in Adobe Illustrator in combination with Rhino 3D.  The intention is to develop enhanced diagramming skills and digital rendering skills in lieu […]

Capture an Event

As spatial designers we are perpetually concerned with at least four dimensions (often far, far more).  The complex coordination of activities within a space over time are central issues within the design process.  Designers must continue to develop effect means of both observing and representing […]
