The work of Form:uLA recognizes + celebrates movement and makes an attempt to explore the relationship between physical environment, inhabitant, and observer. Process and methodology are the strong areas of pursuit in both my studio and teaching approach. We attempt to define the solving of problems without becoming a slave to style or aesthetic convention. Having limited precedence, my work seeks to bring the association between architecture and the culture of technology into sharper focus.
My pedagogical approach has always been one of PROCESS. Shape grammars, formal transformations, and Hyperspace theory temper the majority of my studio projects, regardless of the program involved. I have taught design studios in Environmental Design, Architecture, and Digital Theory/Design for the last 9 1/2 years @ CSUF. My studio's recent inclusion into the Permanent Collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is a testimony to the rigorous intellectual approach I take with academic conditions and theoretical endeavors.
