My undergraduate studies have been an interdisciplinary combination of Engineering, Environmental Science, Architecture, and further relevant topics in the areas of Science, Design, and the Humanities. My culminating thesis offers a concrete embodiment of self-organizing systems in the form of a self-assembling structure. Based in origami mechanics, this architectural design is aimed at folding flat-sheet modules with minimal labor to reduce energy and material consumption of construction. Via an iterative process of parametric optimization, life cycle assessment, and material testing I aim to produce a durable self-assembling pavilion. Post-graduation I plan to work in sustainable design, environmental science, and urban planning.
