McCormick Tribune Campus // Rem Koolhaas
This project focuses on developing a community within the gap of Bronzeville by adding maximum density by creating a variety of units that come together to share communal green spaces by using the allies. Due to many vacant lots that are left between the current houses, this new housing typology is based off of a modular unit so it can infill throughout the Historical Gap of Bronzeville at a relatively fast construction and economically affordable for students, individuals, and families. The module is a twenty foot by twenty foot unity based off a typical Chicago garage. This project focuses on different scales of that unit and how infilling the vacant lots can allow people to re-inhabit the ally of Chicago.

Crown Hall / Mies van der Rohe
This is me (at left, with cup in hand) some 42 years ago... GASP!
Mies Van De Rohe - Crown Hall. The good architecture studio building that embodies the expression of structure, order, proportion, and modern architecture (steel, glass, and contemporary materials). . . #architecture #chicago #miesvanderohe #modernarchitecture #visual #architecturephotography
#uchicagobuiltenvironment Week 10: Alternate|Models; Here are models from IIT’s School of Architecture, again, this time in an attempt to create sustainable skyscrapers. The complexity and intricate design of these models is honestly jaw-dropping and shows the attention to detail required of architects. All of these models are incredible, but the mission behind them is what I think should stick with those who have the privilege of seeing them, for if I’ve learned anything in this class, it’s that Understanding the Built Environment®️ is even more important than building it.
#uchicagobuiltenvironment Week 9: Renewal/Reform; Pictured here are IIT student projects that create a one-room school, something that mission trips and well-meaning but poorly-executing nonprofits haphazardly throw up all over underserved communities in third-world countries. A rigorous architectural approach, especially considering water collection and filtration, shelter from inclement weather, and photovoltaic energy consumption, would do well all over the world to become the new standard for educational aid. These students hit the nail on the head, I think, and it would be wonderful if these solutions could be implemented in real communities.
It's beginning to feel a lot like #SummertimeChi ☀️🚲 . . . #illinoistech #college #education #photography #summer #university #studentlife #collegestudent #technology #tech #chicago #school #warm #biking #chicagogram #windycity #chicagolife #enjoyillinois #fearthehawk #universitylife #americasurbancampus
Lots of people missing because they left ASAP 🙄 but I’m so glad I got to have these people around to make that shit show of a high school, worth it! And the staff members who will inspire me and never let me give up. A special thanks to Jennifer Fine for giving me some killer advice all the time (even though that’s her job) ♥️ #classof2019

Interview w/ @fusionradio08 88.9FM (Chicago)
I liked what Illinois Tech offers with their engineering program. I appreciated the meeting with Professor Oruklu in the EECE department. He provided great advice.

My two moods 😐🤣
Huge THANKS to the Chicago Police Department for rewarding my daughter with scholarship 😉
can’t wait til you’re patrolling the streets while chomping on gum... congrats dawg
For 4 years nothing gave me more joy than this amazing sport. Thank you to all the dedicated coaches and athletes that I've had the pleasure of competing for and proving to me that hard work and commitment always pays off. Joining this team will forever be one of my greatest decisions. Would do it all over again if I could. Happy National Running Day as well!
#uchicagobuiltenvironment Week 5: Treatises/Manifestos; Pictured here are collages from Students at IIT’s School of Architecture. These are very reminiscent of Mies van der Rohe’s collages of the postwar period. Mies’ collages impart a political message and expression of space combined, but these do a wonderful job of depicting space in a flat yet deeply rich medium.
Raining alot these days, and I like raining.
