Neighborhood identities are evolving as buildings become renovated and repurposed for new activities and cater to an influx of different class demographics. My work is inspired by this transitional state of limbo filled with uncertainty, excitement, and trepidation. By abstracting the built environment and mixing vernacular, high style and urban planning, with historical and iconic forms, I aspire to showcase the importance of diversity in our environments. I create these structures with off the shelf building materials such as Oriented Strand Board, Plywood, Pine 2x4s in techniques that are common to the construction industry, as a stand in for the common man, DIY aesthetic and pride in labor, all attributes found in our changing environments.
