THE RECLAIMED WATER PROJECT: TANK ENCLOSURE WEST AUSTIN PARK AUSTIN, TEXAS PUBLIC INTEREST DESIGN PROGRAM SUMMER 2012: 5 WEEK PROJECT FRANCISCO GOMES + 4 STUDENT TEAM Partnering with Austin Parks and Recreation Department, Urban Forestry, Austin Parks Foundation & Friends of West Austin Park, our team built an enclosure for a 2500 gallon water tank planned to irrigated the park with reclaimed water. As a prototype for the city of Austin, we sought to create a structure for both amenity and education. We sought to educate by highlighting the purple color that is required on all reclaimed water lines by making the tank partially visible through poly gal. We filled the sliding door and the bench cut out with reclaimed wood, giving the structure warmth desired by the community and re-enforcing the concept of reuse. Our design was inspired my community engagement meetings and received a warm reception upon completion.

ENGAGING BOGGY CREEK: EXPERIENTIAL KIOSKS BOGGY CREEK PARK AUSTIN , TEXAS PUBLIC INTEREST DESIGN PROGRAM SUMMER 2013: 10 WEEK PROJECT: COLEMAN COKER + 22 STUDENT TEAM Partnering with Austin Parks and Recreation Department, Foundation Communities, Friends of Boggy Creek & the Rosewood Neighborhood Association, our studio created experiential kiosks to promote interest and stewardship of Boggy Creek among East Austin’s youth. We designed installations in two areas near the creek: an outdoor learning center near the Sustainable Food Center’s community garden & a series of three small structures in Boggy Creek Park. The structures focused on the history of the community that once lived in the park, appreciating the natural beauty of park, & learning about the riparian restoration of the creek. The design efforts engaged the community through story gathering with the elderly, poem writing with youth & design meetings with neighborhood groups.

THE COMMUNITY HISTORY KIOSK


THE CANOPY KIOSK During some of the design build process we split the larger group into teams. My team of three worked on the canopy kiosk. This structure created an experience for the users to see the park in a new way, promoting an appreciation of the natural beauty of the trees. Using reclaimed wood on a steel frame, we built a reclined bench from which to view the canopy and steps to elevate users into the branches. 2x6 cedar boards frame and direct the view upward giving the structure a feeling of intimacy within while still allowing views in for safety. Along the benches we laser etched poems written by middle schoolers from the area to connect the user to the community.

Zilker Park, SXSW on rooftops of bars to free projected movies and farmers markets in our site’s adjacent Republic Square Park, the city of Austin thrives in the open pockets. But, as downtown’s density increases we must move these pockets of “civitas” to the sky. OUR PROPOSAL: In applying this thesis to a mixed use family courthouse, we propose 3 main architectural strategies:

SITE APPROACH REFLECTS COURTROOM ENTRY

• A multi-entry and diverse site response. • The unifying fold to bring “civitas pockets” vertical while still connecting to ground • 4 separated cores to provide secure segregation to a complex program

We sought to design a campus based on process, exploring and balancing the dualities that arrive from healing through the relationships between landscape, built spaces and material truthfulness. We chose to create a wounded warrior rehabilitation base in Boise, Idaho. The scope of our work included designing program, choosing a site, composing a site plan with multiple building and landscape types, designing the language for those types and focusing design efforts more deeply in one space.

BRYAN MEDIATHEQUE: TECHNOLOGICAL LIBRARY HISTORIC DOWNTOWN BRYAN , TEXAS FALL 2010 : INTEGRATED STUDIO: TEXAS A&M: MICHAEL O’BRIEN 16 WEEK PARTNER PROJECT PARTNER: ALYSSA PARKER This mediatheque for historic downtown Bryan, TX is a juxtaposition of tradition and change expressed rationally and emotionally through the two main elements of the grid and the wall. The mediatheque evolves past the traditional library and embraces media in all forms. The project integrates basic structure and systems designs extending past the goals of a traditional undergraduate studio project to gain an understanding for the technical side of building design.

FLATBED PRESS: PRINT STUDIO AND GALLERY MARTIN LUTHER KING ST. AUSTIN , TEXAS SPRING 2012 : VERTICAL STUDIO: JOYCE ROSNER 6 WEEK PROJECT The design for Flatbed Press in East Austin derived from a process of three operations inspired by printmaking: reciprocity, threshold, and insertion. In the final project, I developed the abstract ideas that formulated in initial artistic endeavours into a built spatial language. The project is about the act of making and viewing art and includes programmed spaces for a gallery, printmaking studio, offices, and artist residences.

TECHNICAL DRAWING OF PRINT PRESS: PENCIL


PRINT PRESS SERIES SPRING 2012 : PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP: FLATBED PRESS To better understand the printmaking process for the flatbed press building design, I participated in a printmaking workshop. I scanned my technical drawing of the press and enlarged a piece of it. I printed the abstraction onto a transparency then solar etched the lines onto a plate. I then used the plate to create several prints with a variety of inking and chine-collĂŠ techniques.
