A personal project highlighting some of the photography that I have taken around New York City during my first year of residence.
Maya Hayuk's recent installation at the Bowery Mural on East Houston in New York City.
Next Architecture, a Pittsburgh-based design office, was in need of photos to accompany a website re-design. 12 projects in full were photographed ranging from residential to corporate interiors and commercial exteriors.
Photos highlighting Farshid Moussavi's first project in the United States, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland, Ohio. Renowned international architect and co-founder of Foreign Office Architects, this was the first museum project commissioned by Farshid Moussavi Architecture (FMA).
Broad Art Museum
Designed by Zaha Hadid, this museum opened on the campus of Michigan State University in November of 2012. The angular design of Ely and Edythe Broad Art Museum creates a dynamic situation on this small site on the edge of campus.
This residential unit located in Cleveland's Gateway neighborhood designed by Maker challenges the typical loft ideal. Shifting floor plates, steel stairway and custom carpentry combine to create unique views throughout which embodies Maker's pursuit to push the design culture of Cleveland forward.
John Carson's home in upstate New York truly embodies the spirit of a dream home. Every detail of the house built around a 250-ton bluestone boulder was designed by John: from steel structure to the railings over reclaimed wood beam treads, foundation drainage to the shower head installed over the custom NYC-water-tower-like hot tub for cooling off. John, his wife Sharon and the class of '73 were gracious enough to invite me to be a part of their reunion gathering and capture photos of this inspiring design.
This project involved working closely with architect Bradley Kershaw to showcase recently finished projects from his office Design Matters which is located in Independence, Ohio. Design Matters Architecture has years of experience in Northeastern Ohio including retail space, restaurants, medical and dental offices, warehouse facilities and custom homes.
Another design from Maker in Cleveland for a sushi restaurant located in the city's historic 5th Street Arcade. The simplicity of color scheme forces the focus on the custom casework in and around the sushi bar.
Toledo Museum of Art
In 2000, the architectural firm of SANAA was commissioned to design a new space across the street of the original Toledo Museum of Art to house their glass collection. As their first project in the United States, the maze of curved floor-to-ceiling glass makes for a fitting environment for the glass collection and active studios.
A collection of photographs ranging from day-to-day life to international travels. I am obsessed with the many facets of design and how that can be interpreted photographically.
