Morphology, Prototypical formal 3d investigation.

Tsuenwan, 3d design of specific formal elements for a multi-use complex based on previous investigations.

Dubai Festival City, 3d re-design of specific courts.

Beijing Mall, 3d interior design. The first image indicates given program mass, the second shows 3d form study, and the third shows final 3d design with materials.

Sports Village, 3d design of entertainment complex in Rotterdam with internal skiing facilities .3d visualization overlay with watercolor rendering (watercolor by Hank Hockenberger).

Petersen Auto Museum, Proposed 3d renovation design vignettes of automotive museum in L.A.

Morongo Casino, Exterior 3d design, primarilly the entry forms based on the dynamic transformations of a torus, and other elements including the night club, pool bar and parts of the interior pit bar.


Built: Morongo Casino, Realization of the dynamic Porte Cochere.


Hangzhou tower, Proposed 3d design.

Chengdu 5 Star Hotel and Shopping Center Development, 3D design of a multi-use project. Hollistically conceived and developed in max after programatic bubble diagrams by John Simones.

Los angeles Grand Avenue Competion, Primarilly visualization and digital political mitigation for this high profile competion with Jerde, Johnson Fain, and many others.

Circles: Proposed Urban Planning Scheme in Dubai, Exploratory 3D investigations based on sacred geometry with spirals, waves and fractals, envisioning an emotive city of the future.

Dubai Festival City, Hollistic 3d re-design of a Power Center in Dubai. Demonstrates the flexibility of pattern formation techniques as applied to simpler modernist vocabularies. In this case, the design of the "idea engine" applies to a kit of parts and datums.


The Hive , Endemically 3D designed Multi-Use complex. Residential units surround retail and entertainment venues in this archology based on a quick sketch by Jon Jerde and ideas by Paolo Soleri.

Sentosa Entertainment District, 3D designed series of night clubs set on stilts as part of a larger competition based on a concept sketch by Davis Rogers.

San Diego Waterfront Competition , 3D design of office and mult-use complex co-designed with Tammy McCarrol. The same design model was used to create a number of rendered perspectives, animations, plans, sections, elevations, and 3D printed physical models.

Dubai, Interior Pavilions, Design refinements, 3D re-design of 2 specific courts inside of a larger complex. The spatial framework was given while most of the interior elements were products of the 3d design exercise.


Namba, Phase 2, 3D re-design of escalator tower and refinement of ribbons using the existing canyon concept.

Development Proposal in NYC, Very Quick and Collaborative 3D design of proposed multi-use studio/office complex in Queens.

World Market Center, Phase 3 (4 & 5), Endemically 3D designed "black box". Phases 3,4 and 5 were formally conceived together. The first images show the final concept design of entire project. The next image shows the exterior and interior design-development phases. The exploded axon explains the kit of parts and formal ideas. 3D printed models where used extensively throughout all phases and scales of design.
