COLLABORATIVE COMPETITION SUBMISSION
2010 ULI/Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design Competition
INTERDISCIPLINARY URBAN DESIGN STUDIO
a strategy for urban regeneration, Portland, OR
summer / fall 2011 A collaboration as half of the design/build collective Jo(h)nâ€™s, Hammett & Henry. The project is a revitalization of a dilapidated historic boathouse/guesthouse. Specific project goal was to create a space for two in which the St. Lawrence River can be experienced on an intimate level. My role: co-designer, co-builder, primary contact for client.

Site The main concept for the interior of the cabin was drawn from the dominating visual feature: the line of the landscape on horizon.
photos: reveal details inspired by landscape line on horizon
Translation From the idea of a horizontal line, we created a series of reveal details that are repeated throughout the project at various scales.
drawings: interior studies
Draw The main process media of the project was pencil sketching.. Project process was a flow between sketching and building: problems encountered with tools were solved with pencil. Solutions conceived with pencil were refined with tools.
photos: construction process: framing, finish work
Build Reconstruction involved lifting the entire building 3â€? to repair rotten framing members, and continued through framing and finish work. The majority of design breakthroughs came when a built reality created a constraint that pushed us to a creative solution.

Detail Design details were driven by material and tool constraints, and a desire to relate the project to the site. Design development with the client resulted in the creation of several details, including the whitewashed ship-lap siding and the window jamb reveal on the original double hung windows.

Furniture Shelving in the kitchen and bedroom as well as the kitchen island, kitchen table and a pair of asymmetrical benches were created, referencing details developed at earlier stages of the project. Horizontal surfaces were made from a large cherry tree that was milled several years ago on the property. The cherry was flattened on one face, leaving the bottoms and edges in their â€˜naturalâ€™ (from the sawmill) form. A simple supporting structure cradles the cherry tops.

A MUSEUM FOR THE TIBER enabling riparian / urban connections winter / spring 2011 professor : James Tice
‘This studio asks how could Rome benefit if its river edges were freed of their 19th century encrustations and the Tiber was conceived as natural asset rather than as threat.’ -studio brief, James Tice.
Rome, a city whose history and culture grew out of an intimate relationship with the Tiber River has seen this connection severed by heavy-handed flood mitigation and transportation infrastructures. Construction of the 12 to 15 meter tall embankments between 1870 and 1920 effectively cut the Tiber River out of the Roman urban experience. Such separation of river from the urban landscape is a concern when considering the health of a region’s culture, economy and ecology. This thesis studio project was an investigation of how architects and landscape architects can identify and promote mutually beneficial relationships between city, river, ecology and individuals; how an existing urban fabric can be adjusted to support an engagement of landscape and river.
02 THESIS STUDIO

Site The site on the old Farnesina grounds is at the intersection of an urban datum connecting the Janiculum hill to the city to the embanked Tiber river. A river on its east edge and the tallest hill in Rome to its west, the site is a step from the wilds of the Janiculum Hill to the urbanized Tiber.

Folded Landscape Project concept was based on the folding of the landscape, stepping it to meet the riverâ€™s edge and creating a variety of conditions for regional ecology and human habitation. By allowing the Tiber to come into the city, natural flood regimes are simulated; a flood gauge becomes part of the urban fabric.

A Museum for the Tiber The site will become a vision of what the relationship between city/building/ river/landscape can be in a Rome of the future. The Tiber Museum project looks to a time when ecological, urban and social processes are linked in a mutually beneficial way. The museum intervention will be an urban ecological catalyst; a host for an ecology that extends from Romeâ€™s Janiculum Hill, out onto the now deserted river walkways, simultaneously activating the space for human occupation and creating a mobility network for a variety of native animal species.

ALLEY AS ARMATURE
enabling stability through flexibility a collaboration with Jonathan Chesley (mArch), Joseph Sadoski (mArch), Ryan Fiorentino (MBA), Justion Overdevest (LlArch, MBA) advisor: Roxi Thoren
â€˜the ULI/Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design Competition... offers graduate-level students the opportunity to form their own multidisciplinary teams and engage in a challenging exercise in responsible land use. [teams will] have two weeks to devise a comprehensive design and development program for a real, largescale site.â€™ -from competition brief.
Characteristic of North American, car focused master plans, the area surrounding Mt. Baker Light Rail Station is constrained by both physical and conceptual barriers. Mitigating these barriers involves the identification of latent potentials embedded in the urban landscape. Urban remnants are activated to the benefit of local economies, ecologies and cultures.

Mobility By allowing mobility to span several scales, resilient urban typologies are formed that evolve and adapt over time. The revitalization of Rainier Alley creates a stage upon which individuals can play active roles in the formation of their community. A city with a landscape of self-realization. A landscape that is an artifact of its culture. A culture with the ability to dictate its own metamorphosis.

ECODISTRICT AT LENTS
ecological based urban regeneration fall 2011 professor: Brook Muller A collaborative studio with Bennett Hart (Arch) and Renee Wilkinson (L. Arch), with emphasis on an integrated approach to architecture and landscape architecture.
â€˜... establish a green infrastructure framework for urban revitalization. We will approach this emphasis t an intersection of scales, first from the region to district scale and ultimately from the district to immediate site scale.â€™ - from studio brief, Brook Muller
A project investigating how small interventions can catalyze localized growth, and reach outward to create an urban ecological network capable of sustaining a population of mixed income residents along side a variety of flora and fauna. Water and habitat were the main metrics used to judge performance, both play a critical role in the experience of the public spaces in the community.

Public Space Public space in the district becomes a demonstration of the infrastructure supporting the ecological and economic systems of the district.

Storm water Infrastructure Open space serves a double duty of collecting and storing, infiltrating, or transporting stormwater during peak rain events. When dry, the spaces are reclaimed by people in the district. Flood regimes, visible to all, take a role in shaping these spaces.
