Contemporary problems such as global warming and
urban migration are as serious as they are pervasive.
We are mandated to establish integrated solutions and
incorporate them into the urban fabric to adapt and re-utilize
poorly used urban spaces. Cohesion is the integration
of contextual and pragmatic relevancy within the urban
fabric. Cohesion can address these multi-layered problems
through its components and the method of adaptive reuse
and its adherence to contextual, environmental, and social
problems. Architecture as an agent of cohesion has the
capacity to regenerate new life into poorly utilized urban
spaces, allowing for perpetual alterations and pliability.
I wrote my thesis to explore my position on architecture and above you can preview the book and what research I compiled and explored over a period of 12 months. I enjoy the design of cohesive sustainable environments in todays urban fabrics. I am currently an associate architectural designer for JSA in Los Angeles.
