Ever get a bit overboard with a detail. Strapping detail was needed at Porte Cochere to appease inspector. Building and Porte Cochere were designed to work independently and meet wind loads, but inspector was leery of overhang.

In the summer of 2012 I interned with Engineering Ministries International out of their Colorado Springs, CO office and headquarters. I was the Architectural Intern on the ELWA Hospital design in Monrovia, Liberia.   ELWA started as a radio ministry and given a land grant in the 50’s.

Marina_Station, Debary, FL This project was a charette of three weeks for the introduction to the graduate program and the introduction to the SunRail system.  The SunRail system is a proposed light-rail commuter system that would run along the I-4 corridor.  We were given no direction other than the train stop had to house a function aside from transportation.
