Community Perches

01

Fall 2020 from ‘Urban Ecologies’ w/ Prof. Anne Tate Multi-Unit (partially subsidized) Housing above a Community Center, School, and indoor/outdoor Market Hall in Nubian Square. The housing includes a diversity of sizes, price ranges, and accessibilities to a promote multi-faceted and healthy community within the interconnected Perches and Nubian Square as a whole. Through the design and programming, the structure fosters an intersectional and age diverse residential community, perched just above the public market, wooded space, auditorium, and school, intended to provide a sheilding amenity and a home of confirmation and togetherness amongst the Roxbury residents. Roxbury, Boston, MA, USA

Intersecting Densities

02

Spring 2021 from ‘The Problem of the Existing’ w/ Prof. Leeland McPhail This project is a system for more effectively cooling, renovating and expanding ‘The Caselton’ house through modular, prefabricated additions, falacizing the original nature of the Sears house with a focus on new gender roles and spotlighting dometic labor. Undefined lot, Atlanta, GA, USA

Scrape Spring 2020 from ‘Architectural Design’ w/ Prof. Julian Von Der Schulenberg

A library and community center including leasable retail, a large greenspace, and sportscourt/ playscape. The building revives and strips away the intersecting historical uses of the site, tearing apart, yet partially reusing its most recent iteration - a parking deck. The library itself is a rhythmic ode to the I.M. Pei projects that replaced the sites colonial structures, with a large circulation and interaction space torn through the center. The structure is just another iteration of architecture, scraping through the colonized site. Downtown, Providence, RI, USA

(A)mending Fall 2020 from ‘Trust - Building Values’ w/ Prof. An Fonteyne Renovation of an office/manufacturing complex.

(A)mending space is about embracing the fluctuating nature of use. Maximizing a volume - in the eyes of the developer, the inhabitant, the neighbor, the business owner, the employee - is an act performed in many particular ways that can be conjoined to create exciting relationships and collaborations within a common structure. In minimizing the nature of adjustments, yet infusing the Gretag ensemble with generous shared amenities that combine acts of living, collectivity, infrastructure, and circulation, the building can change slowly in ways that are simultaneously minimal and fundamental. Change in the assemblage is as much about reformulating the systems of operation, circulation, and environmental interaction, as it is about reconstructing foundational notions of ownership and pragmatic, resolutional systems of sharing.

Panarchive

05

Spring 2021 from “The Problem of the Existing’ w/ Prof. Leeland McPhail ‘Panarchive’ imagines a utopian community that inhabits the old Georgia State Archives building (imploded in 2017) over the course of several decades. The project fundamentally imagines architecture temporally and considers the ways in which inhabitants have the power to reshape their constructed environment over time. Further, the project considers ways in which natural human activity can be directed to create positive environmental, material, and inter-personal dynamics. The project imagines a future for the former building that could have been if we radically reimagined the social systems that define and implement constructed systems. Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Spring 2022 from “Ground Floor” w/ Prof. Nancy Nichols & Gavin Robb This project came out of an extensive research project in which the studio interviewed over a dozen stakeholders in the redevelopement of a city owned parcel adjacent to the new Gilman Square station on the extension of the MBTA Green Line through Somerville, MA. The interviewees include city councilmembers, city empolyees, private residents, and community organizers. My project imagines a comunity center, made up of greenhouse-like pavillions, nestled into a broader urban-architectural public landscape. The large communal space also houses a locally owned mini mart to replace an existing one on the site, as well as a counterserve restaurant, a hardware store, and several unperscribed commercial spaces, all situated underneath 5-6flrs of affordable housing.
