Urban and Regional Planning Masters Candidate | Georgetown University
Hello! My name is Kaveen, and I am a graduate from Carnegie Mellon University's School of Architecture. I am currently pursuing my Masters in Urban and Regional Planning at Georgetown University, expected to graduate in May 2020.
Please click through to see projects I've worked on both in and since architecture school and to get in touch with me!
Learnt both hand drafting and modeling techniques through the replication of an existing building (Porchdog House by Marlon Blackwell).
Studied existing lighting and thermal performances of an existing building (Porchdog House by Marlon Blackwell) using Austodesk Ecotect and proposed improvements to reach optimal efficiency.
Learned computer software and how to program digital simulations and animations.
Learned how to solve architectural problems strictly with constructions, drawing tools and geometric methods.
Studied local urban Pittsburgh settings, their successes and 'place-making' abilities, and designed alternative solutions for many.
Materials + Assembly
Studied building codes, structural systems, construction types, and safety precautions through 3D modeling and 2D drawings.
Observed, researched and analyzed a building on campus (Gates Hillman Center) to collect data on its usage and efficiency and propose improvements to help maximize usage for all.
Structures + Statics
Combined architecture and engineering to understand and study structural systems, performance and construction.
Environment 1: Climate + Energy
In-depth semester long analysis on a building's performance and energy usage and re-designed aspects to maximize energy and reduce resource usage.
Environment II: Design Integration of Active Building Systems
Learned about active and passive systems within building design, and applied the strategies to existing buildings and res-designed to help them reach net zero energy and carbon emissions.
Real Estate Design + Development
In depth study of a local Pittsburgh project ranging from feasibility, predevelopment, zoning, construction, and marketing, in addition to substantial financial components of property valuation, budgeting, and investment.
Ethics + Practice
Learned about the role of an architect in practice, in relation to their obligations to the client, the profession, and the community, and how ethics play a part in the interdependence of the field.
