Instructed by professor Matthew Lopez at RPI, I learned the basics of 2D and 3D visualization, architectural theory, and the creative process. Given a painting as my source material, I would develop cubic models inspired by the forms I saw, before delving into the design of a house for the painting's artist and a scientist. Assigned De Somnis VII from Pablo Palazuelo, I created an abstract hillside home for him and Marie Curie.

For one of my supporting courses in the architecture program, I was asked to assemble a 25-page book outlining my creative process, which can be seen in layout form below. The book includes drawings, renderings, and descriptions of the house and the design behind it.
