I

am

...a community-focused architectural designer who aims to make a world fit for everyone. I am a leader and a listener. My year-long employment with an architecture and urban design firm has allowed me to work through social and spacial problems on a room, building, and community scale. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. I tell stories, share common values, and sell lifestyles through my work. I am pleased to meet you.

Rooftop Gardens A private roof terrace is available only to residents. It overlooks the semi-private courtyard; both provide green space views for South-facing units.

These green spaces mitigate and filter stormwater, reverse the heat-island effect that engulfs South Seattle in the summer, and enhance livability.

Solar gain in south-facing apartments is vital to the application of passive heating strategies. Through solar studies, we found an ideal courtyard size to allow for passive solar gain during the coldest months of the year. Combined with shallow roof slopes on the North wing, the courtyard is sun-filled during the warmer months.

Creating a catalyst for local economic development is key to subsidizing costs of affordable housing and enhancing a sense of identity for South Seattle.

Low-Rent, High Traffic Vending Stalls in a variety of sizes create opportunities for a diverse array of small business owners to call the Marketplace home. Marketplace Interior showing anchor brewery 8


A continuous, multi-layered insulated cavity greatly reduces the need for active heating and cooling systems. Massive redcedar clad overhangs shade windows from unwanted solar heat gain.

PALAZZO MUCEVI Vicenza’s Past and Present Come Together

A proposal for the Museo Centrale di Vicenza (Vicenza Central Art Museum) in Vicenza, Italy. Created under instruction from Professors Don Corner and Jenny Young. Spring, 2015


a permanent home FOR PALLADIO Palazzo Mucevi represents a solution to a significant civic planning problem in Vicenza: a vibrant place to celebrate and permanently house the works of famed Italian architect Andrea Palladio.

Basilica Palladiana

ca. 1444

Piazza dei Signori

ca. 1426

Mercato MUCEVI

ca. 2015

Piazza delle Biade

ca. 1428

The chosen site is current home of a dilapidated government headquarters between Piazza dei Signori and Piazza de Albani. It represents the opportunity to unite Vicenza’s historic heart around a central civic core. 11


(Above) Documenting the Vernacular: The role of rustication in urban fabric.

(Right) A series of lively, urban connections are created between Piazza delle Biade and Piazza delle Erbe, including an interior public atrium lined with cafes and a covered outdoor marketplace. The ground floor’s exterior walls remain parallel to the Basilica’s while the museum’s upper floors angle out to match the lines created by the Old Tower. 12

N


a place to TEACH For the first time in decades, Vicenza will re-establish an art and architecture learning center around Palladio’s works.

Palladio Learning Exhibits: - Offices - Classroom - Library - Palladio Exhibit Room - Conference Rooms - Theatre

a place to EXPLORE Three unique gallery conditions: Northern light for projected media, Southern light for sculpture, and diffused top light for photosensitive paintings.

a place to CELEBRATE The opportunity to inhabit the rooftop inspires cultural gatherings and festival celebrations where there was once nothing.

Earth-colored terra-cotta rainscreens give way to cascading, white terra-cotta shade. This filters daylight into the southern galleries and establishes a unique character on Piazza delle Erbe.

Northwest Elevation

The upper-floor galleries each have a different solar exposure: one lit from the North, one lit from the south, and one lit indirectly from above for photosensitive works.

14


fine-grain, pedestrian-scaled URBAN FABRIC The two piazzas are united by creating a garden-topped, open-air market enclosure. The exterior enclosure is wrapped in custom terra cotta modules that create varying levels of depth and shadow, alluding to the way traditional rusticated stone facades manipulate light.

FIELD WORK

One Year Internship At The Urban Collaborative, LLC The Urban Collaborative LLC is an architecture and Urban Design firm headquartered in Eugene, Oregon. While most of their work is contracted through federal agencies (NASA, Department of Defense), my time was also committed to serving local, private-sector clients in their pursuits for sustainable design.

Camp Lutherwood, Oregon Master Plan: For nine months, my time at the Urban Collaborative was dedicated primarily to a master planning process for a faith-based retreat center outside of Eugene.
