2017 Masonry Design Competition

Second year of architecture and design and we're asked to build something 1:1, how exciting?

Requested to design something that represents the future of masnory, in collabartion with our studio we focused on technology, CNC machine cutting and parametrics to challenge how masnory is used.

I, with a couple of others, drove the intial design concepts/ iterations. Throughout the semester I served as a project manager coordinating with the masonry contractors, the forman, oversaw overall design decisions with Clarissa Van Ryzen and worked on the 3D file with Gerome Garses.

Construction documents were created, we required formwork and materials. I took initiative when we couldn't use the CNC machine on campus the night before construction and called a major CNC manufactuing company "KOMO Inc." and organized an opportunity to have our formwork CNC'd and created an opporutnity for partnership between the comnpany and NJIT and the annual design competition.

During the build weekend, complications arose but were resolved and the project was constructed and lasted the full year until it was meant to be until it wa taken down for the competition to begin again.
