BIOGRAPHY

I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. I have always had an interest in the field of arts and sciences having been raised by a former architect and an environmental physicist. Choosing to study architecture was an easy decision for me because it is what I have always wanted to do. The idea of creating a structure which may far outlast my lifetime and potentially inspire future designers within the field is exactly the type of legacy I want to leave behind.

PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY

I strongly believe in the concept of being better than you were yesterday. This philosophy has always kept me moving and progressing forward while providing insight on how to improve myself both as a human and as a designer.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Design has provided a way for me to solve problems from alternative perspectives and create answers to problems I wouldn’t have been able to solve by using mathematics. My interests in design lay within designing systems of architecture which change the way people interact with the built world.

INTEGRATIONS

This project contains all the necessary details and research to be considered a buildable and successful structure. This project reflects the importance and effect sustainable design has within architecture. The building meets LEED Platinum Standards, meets COTE standards, and explores design within the Living and Learning challenge. These challenges were completed and explored in order to test the limits of sustainable design, but also explore new mediums and ways of saving energy. The Tesla Center’s values and capabilities were meant to be in harmony with the idea that architecture should be sustainable because there is no other option. The world needs to be more conscious of its waste and we feel Tesla is a company which seeks to resolve many of Earth’s problems by improving humans’ resources. There are several Tesla products used in this structures design, such as Tesla Solar Panels and Boring Bricks used for construction. Completed with studio partner, Tori Eslick under the studio direction of Mark (Robert) Dekay and Lisa Hoskins.

DESIGN FOR WATER Unlike many of the surrounding buildings, this program manages and collects stormwater and rainwater runoff to use for the needs of the building and to provide landscaping irrigation to surrounding properties through a drip irrigation system. Most of the water is harvested from the roof of the West building which is then collected in cisterns and filtered to use for sinks, showers, and drinkable water. On the east side of

the site, there are bioswales that collect water to use for washing cars in the service center. There is enough collected water to provide for the building, as well as create an emergency supply for the community if the need arises. This design is Net-Positive Water.

DESIGN FOR CHANGE Throughout the design’s life cycle, it can be used for many functions. The open floor area and easy access allows the function to be adaptable to change. The large landscaped courtyard and use of water and solar collection could allow this construction to become some type of educational design space where classes could be held about environmental design. It

could also become a community gathering facility where community events can be held with little to no cost to taxpayers. In 50 – 100 years, this design could perform many functions efficiently and sustainably.

DESIGN FOR ECOLOGY The project currently sits on the edge of a downtown area near busy roadways and a large park. The new landscaped courtyard (with permeable pavers) and green roofs will reintroduce a variety of native plants and wildlife to the site which was previously covered with asphalt. Many of the species that are to be planted in the greenscaped areas

will attract birds and insects to the site. Out of the birds and insects introduced to the site, the most encouraged species will be honey bees, humming birds, and a wide range of butterflies.

DESIGN FOR WELLNESS Throughout the design, there are many thermally and environmentally pleasing strategies. In every occupiable space, there is a direct view to the exterior courtyard or equivalent, and fresh air is available in each space through triple pane windows and vents when the air temperature outside is comfortable. All materials used within the building are Red List approved, and many materials are locally sourced to create a connection to the community and surrounding environ-

ment. Daylighting analyses have been conducted to ensure that every occupiable space has an adequate amount of natural sunlight throughout the day.

DESIGN FOR ECONOMY Within the project, there are passive design strategies (solar sunrooms for heating, natural stacked ventilation, and stormwater collection) that allow the project to rely less heavily on active systems. Active systems are used to reduce energy and water consumption from the city such as geothermal heating/cooling, Tesla Solar Tiles and Solar

Roofs, radiant flooring systems, and chilled beams. Although these items may have a higher upfront cost, the payback will counteract the initial cost. The project also utilizes local materials which boosts the local economy, as well as reduces transportation fees and the program’s carbon footprint.

CONCRETE The project team decided to work with Tesla Boring Bricks because the building would be promoting one of Tesla’s newest products and it has a low impact on the environment. The earth-rammed unit is a by product of Tesla’s sister company The Boring Company. This establishment is trying to create a faster and easier way for mass transit to travel by boring tunnels in mountain and hill sides. The soil that is displaced in this process is then rammed together to create an inexpensive and low impact building unit. These units are very

durable and easy to assemble and disassemble. All of the project’s structural walls are made of this material because the team thought that using this low impact material instead of concrete would lower our environmental impact but still provide the stability and structure that the building needed.

APPALACHIAN

DISTILLERY

The spread of alcohol has been one of the most important and lucrative processes in America. It fueled the economy of the south and Appalachia. Creating billion-dollar industries in both the fields of liquor and NASCAR. While the process of illegal liquor transportation was dangerous and frowned upon, it created opportunity and strengthened the poor economies of Southern America. This Distillery is broken into a series of campuses which each perform their own crucial functions and programs within the small community of Greenback, TN. This project was just as much a designing of architectural systems as much as it was the designing of culture and creating a new identity within the small community of Greenback using alcohol. The site is connected by a moving channel system which allows for inhabitants to travel undetected, just as moon shine runners attempted to do during prohibition. Hopefully these systems can create a stronger community and draw an outside presence to Appalachia.


APPALACHIAN DISTILLERY

Site Greenback Tennessee is a small community located just 35 minutes south west of Knoxville, TN but sits within the Loudon county district lines. The town is very sprawled out as most of the residents live in cheap housing with plenty of farmable land. Connection to the 411-highway system which connects the majority of Appalachia and serves as both a geographical edge but also a system for transportation within Appalachia. Highway helped connect Appalachia to the rest of the North East during prohibition. The location for the Distillery’s site was decided so that the Social Campus would sit near the town’s center so that locals could have easier access to the facilities but also allow for enough northern expansion.

The Distillery Site relies on being self-sustaining and replacing its wasted resources. Each of the three zones in the campus have separate programmatic responsibilities but are given the freedom to change in the future in order to fit the needs of the site.

There are two primary campuses, the first is the public site known as The Social. The Social campus is located on the south end of the site and sits across the street from the local school and adjacent to the downtown area. The Private campus is known as The Distillery campus, which is located on the northern tip of Greenback, provides most of the distilling functions. In-between these two campuses is dedicated to harvesting resources and replenishing them. Each of these areas is connected by The Channel, .which runs the distance of the site.

Systems

The site aims to encase an important era and local culture within architecture by using important characteristics from the Hidden Drinking Era to form a series of systems. These systems hope to strengthen and help the local landscape flourish, create a stronger community within Greenback, and potentially be emplaced in other underdeveloped parts of the world. These systems aim to preserve as much of the pre-developed architecture without disrupting or damaging locals lifestyles.

The shape of the site was chosen to sit within the main roads. To address the lack of axis and order within the site, axial envelope lines were drawn to create programmatic pockets within the site. These programmatic pockets have been developed into structures within the site and are meant to adjust to serve the needs of the community and site. The systems within the site are meant to be seen as a series of individuals working together as a whole to accomplish the primary goal of creating an identity within the town, through the use of alcohol.

Perspective The general decor of the site was derived from the idea of wanting to bring the Appalachian mountains Above and its cultural qualities closer to Greenback. The Campuses are meant to be immersive and to not draw up an unwanted attention.

Above Every building on site comes equiped with a sky light which is meant to be the primary source of lighting in each of the structures. The skylight frames are deep so that light and heat will be diffused as the day progresses, highlighting different functions within each of the structrues at different times of day.

Ritual: Social The Social Campus aims to draw the inhabitants of greenback together and give them a place where they can accomplish local tasks and problems as a community. It also serves as the center and starting point for visitors, as it is located in the city center and right across from the k-12 school (serves as the current identity of the town). The Distillery’s site is not attempting to steal the school’s importance to the community but is rather trying to add to the current identity of Greenback which is lacking.

Ritual: Channel The Channel, a semi-underground movement system which runs through the Distillery’s site, is meant to better connect the entire site. The primary purpose is to assists with the movement of visitors, resources, and materials as they travel through the site. This movement system runs along a track with platform bases to move things leveled. The tracks run along the outer walls of buildings on the Distillery campus and serves as loading and unloading stations for visitors and resources. These loading stations allow visitors and inhabitants to travel around the site in an orderly fashion as they move between program stations.

REPURPOSE

FILM STUDIO

This site of this design is located in Chattanooga, TN, on the outskirts of the city, near low income areas. Chattanooga has had several movies filmed within its boundaries such as; 42, Water for Elephants, October Sky, Leatherheads, and more. The area has served as a place for movies to be filmed due to its ratio of city and greenery, making it a dual purpose site. The primary purpose of this project was to take an almost abandoned church and give it new life through modern forms of design. Through modern design the the plan was to reinvent the areas identity and programatic function. The Film studio serves as another beacon within the city o Chattanooga where the community can grow, connect, and admire the city’s achievements within the film industry. Film shouldnt be confined to one city in California, it is a medium which brings people together and explores art in motion, sound, and changing imagery.


REPURPOSE-FILM STUDIO


Program of the structure consists of both office and student functions. The hope is that the entire structure will create a community both within the structure as well as its surrounding atmosphere. The structure comes equipped with office rooms, viewing spaces, student studios, an occupiable patio space and multipurpose classrooms which can be remodeled to fit the needs of the user. The structure is meant to be a rentable space for the entire Chattanooga community to be able to occupy and connect with each other for any event or communal celebration.

The building uses a long curve which cantilevers on both the east and west sides so that outside inhabitants can interact with the under spaces. The curve is meant to be long continuous flowing inhabitable space with plenty of glazing for sunlight and visibility. The high ceiling is meant to erupt the interior space and make the narrow stretch feel larger and more spacious.

RESIDENTIAL RENOVATION

This has been one of the few residential projects I have worked on, however, this has been my favorite. The idea behind this project was to select an existing cookie cutter house floor plan within a book full of generic and lifeless layouts. The most important aspects of the redesigning of the layout were the central communal space which contained an existing chimney/ fireplace. Hopefully this courtyard can be utilized to draw loved ones closer and give them a chance to relax within an enclosed outdoor space and maybe even tell each other ghost stories around the fire. By the end of the project we were tasked with developing a ramp addition which may potentially be built or adjusted to fit an existing home within a low-income neighborhood.

The campus contains pieces of work from some of the most highly acclaimed architects and it reflects many different styles throughout, serving as a place for architecture to flourish as its own and become a place for design to express itself. The Aronoff structure is a building which contains no axis within its interior movement. It houses the DAAP programs which makeup UC’s design lifestyle. he structures itself is disruptive by nature and its numerous additions seek to take more attention from the last. So the goal was to create an addition for the DAAP program, which included multi-purpose gallery and exhibition center which contains areas for students to work and employees to feel comfortable and more valued by being placed in a more stable condition, without disrupting the values that the Aronoff exhibits.

RIVER WALK

A project compeleted during a semester abroad in Krakow, Poland. This River Walk serves as a historic tribute to the Polish people who were murdered by the Germans during in WWII. The river it sits next two is located in the old city of Krakow where a large portion of the city can be seen regularly inhabiting because of its improving scenery and its numerous activities. The area used to be a a ghetto neighborhood for the Jewish community when the Germans invaded and occupied Poland. The area is seperated into two levels, the sub level which is and the walking area above the flood wall. There isnt really an easy transition bwteen the two and it often forces the public to choose between the two levels without the opportunity to switch The incline walkway serves as a mediator between the two levels, as it moves inhabitants through a series of exhibitory stations. These stations were meant to ediucate those passing and also provide a better connection between two highly populated levels in downtown Krakow which were previosly poorly connected.

SITE PLAN SCALE: 1 - 600

The walk is supposed to span long distances across the city, where hopefully the river walk will be a copied and reused design around the city. Each of the bays within the structures has louvres used to provide shading for inhabitants as they walk through the structure. The louvres are placed in bays where as some are lacking because of the need for sunlight to be delivered to plants It is also intended for plant life to be able to grow around and in the structural elements, making it a green space within the city, where plant growth is encouraged and celebrated within the architecture.

The lower level is prone to flooding which made the selection of material easy because it needed to be strong enough to support the weight of water and not damage when it gets wet. Steal material was chosen to support these problems and provide a hard and sleek aesthetic. The floors are made of an acrylic paneling which reflects and shines the visiting and stationary setting characteristics. The panels are meant to reflect those who observe and move throughout the structure but also provide a clean material which helps inhabitants feel as if they are a part of the area they inhabit.

DESIGN

CONSTRUCTION

The remaining projects in this book are committed to presenting built and constructed projects. The built work is an expression of my own personal interests and passions. Model making has always been something ive been intrigued by, and I love to treat it as a way to create reaction, intrest, and a form of passion. These models are an expression of curiousity of material and craft, and are the products of my construction interests. This section will remain an ever growing part in my life.


GRACE’S DESK


DESK

Creation of this desk was rooted entirely out of passion and an emerging in-terest in furniture design. I have always had an interest in furniture design, and this has been my first constructed piece, the project took 2 weeks and during Christmas Break. This desk was created as a gift for my girlfriend, who has been a large source of support and love in my life and I wanted to find a way to reciprocate my gratitude by designing and building her a desk from scratch because she did not have a surface to work at prior. The desk is made of Red Oak, it contains 2shelves large enough to hold many objects or paperwork. The shelve panels are meant to create vibrancy within the brown grain and are unattached so the color may be changed to fit the mood of the room.

CIRCUIT TO LIFE


LIFE

Circuit to Life was created using old and obsolete computer parts that were laying around my Dad’s information technology office. Todays society moves so quickly that it doesn’t give things a second chance or thought. These computers were once considered an important part of someone’s life and once they stopped working or a better model came along they were quickly discarded and dumped aside like trash. The idea of taking a bunch of old and lifeless items and turning them into something new, creative, and alive was very intriguing to me. I called this process creative recycling.

KNOXVILLE COLLEGE GLASS


GLASS

Representation model of the well-maintained interior of Elnathan Hall. This idea is a paradox due to the campus’ both growing and declining status. The model is constructed of transparent glass to convey a representation of a cleaned interior. The model is cut in half so the viewer can study the structure in section rather than as a whole, it also allows the viewer to see the interior spaces within Elnathan Hall from every angle at every moment. It is able to be drawn to close with a hard-white skin which serves to disrupt the interior cleanliness.
