Speculative design gives an opportunity to stretch our imaginations and develop new and boundary-pushing systems and prototypes to explore what may lay beyond the horizon. 
"Speculative Design is the design of future products and services to understand the impacts of emerging technology and social, cultural trends."

A.I. Explorations: Custom GPTs &
Fantasy Island Creator

These are two exploration into A.I.  - The first is a Fantasy Island generator that taps into OpenAI's API, allowing users to craft imaginative island landscapes reminiscent of childhood wonder, complete with heli pads, campgrounds, and watercolor renderings.

The second project comprises three custom GPTs trained on ChatGPT: 1) Web Trend Analyzer efficiently examines websites' UI/UX elements, summarizing overarching design trends while highlighting standout and generic examples; 2) Moodboard Generator curates imagery grids based on style prompts like "mid-century kitchen," refining results through user feedback; and 3) Architectural Image Styler artistically transforms architecture photos by overlaying styles like sketch collages or watercolors while preserving core image elements. These projects showcase AI's potential in sparking imagination and enhancing design analysis.

Code Based Design:


This project explores how movement perception is influenced by high-speed travel. It focuses on using parametric tools to create unique experiences of landscape and speed. The thesis demonstrated that manipulating design elements like pylons can alter perceptions of movement, enhancing transit experiences. A key takeaway from 2007 was the significant role of technology in design, shifting the focus from movement and perception to the importance of technological integration in design.

SkyCar City:

A Science Fiction Architecture

This project, envisioning a city designed for flying cars, broadened my understanding of creative problem-solving. It showed that creativity is more than just designing buildings; it's about inventing and shaping the future. Working with MVRDV, the project taught us to think like futurists and science fiction visionaries. The key lesson was the importance of a bottom-up approach in city design, considering how and why people move, leading to a comprehensive vision of a future city.

Spark: An A.I.

Conversation Starter

Spark, an AI assistant, enhances conversations by suggesting topics based on guest data, fostering connections between people. It learns from interactions to improve human-machine interfaces and is adaptable to various settings, offering real-time, translated conversation starters.

Project Stereo: PC Case Version 2

Computer PC Building Meets Old School Form Factor

Building a PC is like a lego kit - each part meticulously selected for function, cost, fit. This is my second version of a PC case inspired by 80's technology and product design.  The previous version is inspired by a mid century amp or radio. Seen here.  In this version, I'm using a slightly larger motherboard (mATX size), a GPU, mini HDPlex power supply, and some other items like small SSD hard drives.  The design is created to take advantage of additive production methods and laser cut sheet goods.  I can print the 3D parts at my shop and test for fitment.  The sheet goods provide rigid chassis - in a brass or anodized bent aluminum and the top and sides reference old record players with a smokey acrylic glass.
