REDEVELOPMENT MASTERPLAN OF ALACHUA GENERAL HOSPITAL SITE GAINESVILLE, FL / GRAD 2 (TEAM: Ashley Cino, Liz Desmond, Allison Angle, Jim Frey
This Alachua General Hospital has been an integral part of the community for many years however it is no longer functional as a hospital and is being demolished. The goal was to create a masterplan that would respect the history of the site while helping to fill a void in the area. The proposal includes a variety of uses including an important pedestrian retail corridor, an extended stay hotel, housing, office space, technology center and a community center. Ample parking in both traditional garages and automated garages is also provided. The various uses are knitted together by green spaces that weave throughout the site.

BEIJING HUTONG REDEVELOPMENT MASTERPLAN BEIJING, CHINA / HK-CHINA STUDY ABROAD
CULTURE Renew pride in cultural identity, foster relationships among different socioeconomic backgrounds
ECONOMY Tourism, recyclable services, and commercial ventures provide a renewable source of income to the community
EDUCATION Provide services to help recognize the importance on environmental issues, and the preservation of cultural identity
POLITICS Promotion of community as a model of sustainability to the world
THE HYDRATED CITY
The traditional housing in the Beijing area of China is a type of development called the Hutong, it is a series of densly packed small dwellings separted by narrow alley ways. The Chinese government has started to try to eliminate these areas in order to present a more modern, developed face to the rest of the world. This is causing mass displacement of residents and destroying part of the cultural identity of the people. This masterplan would help to retain that cultural identity while infusing new life into the area. The area would function as a model of sustainability that would provide new industry jobs, tourism and educational opportunities.

CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE DESIGN BUILD GRAD 3 / FALL 2010
site looking NE
Camp Crystal lake in a non-profit educational camp that serves the Alachua County school district. Students are first introduced to the camp in second grade and again in fifth grade when they take part in an overnight trip. The camp teaches students about nature while promoting teamwork and self esteem. As a team we designed a toilet room, shower area and changing room that would be constructed using donated materials and funds. Due to the nature of the donated supplies we developed a unique double skin that was composed of multiple smaller pieces allowing for ventilation through the structure. The chaging room is constructed nearby and the elements are connected by a boardwalk.
