Create a highlighted red path (inspired by the yellow brick road from the movie Wizard of Oz) that runs across the flooring, taking the employees and guests from the reception area to the collaboration zone. The collaborations zone is a space designed to encourage employees to work together. Also, secondary pathways that serves as dividers to different departments within the space. In addition, creating visual connections throughout the space in which an employee gets to engage with other departments to allow for a positive work force. This is achieved by lowering the heights of the dividers between workstation and using clear glass partitions for enclosed offices.

Located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. In Stitch the most significant space is the production area. Therefore, I placed the production area in the center of the space and wrapping the program around it. This circulation will allow all users to experience and engage with the production area. However, the area is partially visible by the use of soft architecture (curtains). Allowing stitch clients to experience and creating this desirable connection to the process of upholstering without being physically in the production area. The colors used in the space are mainly whites to create this dramatic feel of having the colorful bolts of fabrics in the space.

A Journey Through Homelessness
There are over 600,000 homeless people in America and despite this large number the general public often ignores this issue. It is usually assumed that homeless people choose to live on the street, and that they are either lazy, drug addicts or criminals. Within this exhibition, we set out to educate visitors by creating a journey through homelessness and allowing for a pause: to think, to feel, and to better understand the realities, struggles and stories of selected people living on the streets.
-To create an understanding about homelessness and introduce visitors to a some of the daily struggles of the homeless.
-To evoke empathy by encouraging visitors to reconsider certain basic necessities that are often taken for granted
-To inspire visitors to take action by donating and volunteering with organizations supporting the homeless

The exhibition will address the concern around puppy mills through a variety of sensory experiences that will engage the visitor and encourage the discovery of information surrounding this issue. The exhibition will serve as conduit where visitors place themselves in the situation that puppy mill dogs endure. In the end, visitors can take a pledge, adopt a puppy and boycott pet stores, empowering them to make a change.
This exhibition takes visitors behind the pet shop window and exposes the truth about puppy mill practices. It aims to educate visitors about the tragic operation of mass-producing puppies and offers opportunities for visitors to help end the cruel cycle of puppy mills.

Chanel is “the ultimate house of luxury defining style and creating desire now and forever.” Coco Chanel introduced the idea of “fashion to be functional” by breaking all the gender restrictions and confining corsets and crinolines in the 1920s, allowing women the freedom of movement and an expression of their individuality through fashion.

Visitors will also be introduced to Chanel’s concept of timeless fashion that continues to influence many fashion designers today.
- To create an understanding of Coco’s personal life struggles and how it influenced her design.

In this project we are designing a pushcart for Story, a retail space in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York. The pushcart will be placed in various venues, for example hotel lobbies and collaborative work spaces throughout the city. When closed the cart will be approximately 6’ x 4’ to allow it to fit though most doorways and openings.
The pushcart will have movable modular components that will serve as a blank canvas that can be modified for every new story. The Story Wall and Letter to the Editor are constant elements in each story; the cart will have a permanent display for these elements as well as a hanging display, shelving and a lockable showcase.
This pushcart will serve as a retail “space” as well as provide opportunities for various community events to be featured in and around the cart. It will have a maximum storage component and be versatile in such that the modular components can be reconfigured to meet the theme and the needs of the current story.Once closed, the pushcart will be lockable.
Story, located in the industrial neighborhood of Chelsea with a heavy concentration of art galleries in which the interiors of the spaces are always on display. The design and concept of the cart will draw inspiration from the design of the store and its surrounding neighborhood.
