Welcome to Caroline Klatman's Senior Thesis Portfolio

181 Fremont is located in San Francisco, California and will be a mixed-use office and residential high-rise, featuring 15 floors of condominiums on the top stories. The buildings unique skeleton, which exposes part of the structural design, is just one of the features that will contribute to it's unique imprint on the San Francisco skyline.

During the fall 2014 semester, l will analyze the structure as it is already designed. With the help of my analysis, I will conclude the semester with a proposal for an alternate method of design. Come spring semester, I will carry-out the proposed design. This website will be updated regulary to follow my progress.

Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio

The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) is a web‐based project and information center. It contains material produced for a year‐long Senior Thesis class. Its purpose, in addition to providing central storage of individual assignments, is to foster communication and collaboration between student, faculty consultant, course instructors, and industry consultants. This website is dedicated to the research and analysis conducted via guidelines provided by the Department of Architectural Engineering.
