SKINKER CORRIDOR FRAMEWORK studio jantzen, june-dec 2013

Masterplan and future vision for North Skinker corridor for client Washington University in St. Louis. I have been working on this project in the pre-concept phase for six months with Studio Jantzen and completed landscape design, street redesign to include bicycle infrastructure and ground floor building concept plans. Another of my responsibilities is coordination with consultants - urban design, landscape, lighting and traffic engineering.

N Skinker Blvd at Forest Park Parkway

Human scale lighting, seating and new bicycle parking located in green buffer

PROPOSED GENERAL ARRANGEMENT Specification Level: High Utilizing existing stormwater drainage

Sidewalk and bicycle lane is taken across sidestreet and priority is given to pedestrians and bicyclists

Opportunity for small public plaza at corners

Median serves as flexible space that can both act as a buffer for safe pedestrian crossings, and can narrow at points to allow for bus bays.

Clearly marked zebra crossing, from sidewalk to sidewalk

Bus bay located in roadway Access at grade across bicycle track Bicycles slow and stop for pedestrians accessing the bus

A visual cost analysis was developed for the client, Washington University, in order to create a future plan easily achievable in three phases. I worked to develop high, medium and low design options featured on these pages. Low or temporary options being phase 1, whereas high options with new buildings are planned in the later phases. During this cost estimate, I coordinated landscape and urban design consultants and assembled a ‘cost estimating package’ to which costs were assigned by the estimator.

A bioswale and sidewalk parklet is proposed to activate the sidewalk along Skinker Blvd. The existing parking lot could be used for a Saturday fair or seasonal market.

scholarship, internship

SCDA Singapore, 2012

I was selected for the prestigious SCDA scholarship and internship through Washington University in St. Louis. During two summer months in Singapore, I worked with architects, landscape architects and interior designers on projects in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, India and United Arab Emirates. The experience was incredible designing luxury condo towers, master planning for a resort, the conception of a new island and high density housing. This experience in South East Asia broadened my understanding of global architecture.

MCGILL UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL TD AMERITRADE PARK HDR, 2010

Between undergraduate and graduate school, I worked as an architectural intern at HDR Architecture’s headquarters in Omaha. During these seven months, the majority of my time was spent working on schematic design for McGill University Hospital, a shared Revit model with the team in Canada. Another portion of my time was spent assisting with construction documents for the suite level of TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, NE.

After completing a semester abroad in Paris at l’Ecole Speciale d’Architecture in 2008, I was invited through a benevolent exchange at the French Heritage Society to work with the head architect at the Chateau de Chantilly in historic preservation. My main task during the summer was schematic design for les Grandes Ecuries, once the largest horse stables in the world, into loft housing. Other projects included the restoration of water bain walls, reconstruction of les Hameaux and compliance with fire codes.
