UWM Solar Decathlon House - Renovation Milwaukee, WI Worked with students and faculty advisors to renovate the badly water damaged UWM Solar Decathlon House which was converted to a conference room/oﬃce on campus. Helped design/build surrounding deck skirt, benches, railing, and planters. Rebuilt leaking roof, removed damaged interior, and designed the layout for the custom ﬂooring system.

Kenilworth Fine Arts Center Milwaukee, Wisconsin 2010
University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee: Prof. Jim Shields
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Peck School of Fine Arts has continued to grow in recent years and has expanded beyond the bounds of the main campus. Across the street from the large Kenilworth arts building is a registered historic building and a potential site for further expansion of the Fine Arts program. The main gallery and library for the Peck School of Fine Arts is currently located nearly a mile away from the large arts facility and inconvenient for student use. This design for a future Kenilworth Fine Arts Center incorporates a large gallery space for school exhibits as well as a Fine Arts library. The project goal was to create a modern addition to the existing historic building that renovates the historic structures, and incorporates the following uses: classrooms, offices, cafe, library and supporting spaces, and art gallery.

The spaces are all linked together with a series of ramps leading upward into the gallery and downward into the library.
An important portion of the studio was the creation of a series of construction documents with the projects. A number of detailed plans, sections, elevations, and details were drawn and layed out into annotaed sheets. This exercise in creating construction details and drawing sets proved to be a very beneficial step of the project that helped to create a design scenario that helped prepare me for a project done in an architectural office.

Cartesia Freshwater Gallery Milwaukee, Wisconsin 2011
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee: Profs Gil Snyder, Jim Dicker
Honorable Mention: 2011-2012 ACSA/AISC Steel Design Student Competition Project Partner: Connor Fischer This project was done as part of the UWM BIM studio, in partnership with Autodesk and Eppstein Uhen Architects in Milwaukee. It focused on developing the Reed Street Yards in Milwaukee, a former rail yard, and potential site of a freshwater research campus to make Milwaukee a world leader in freshwater research and industry. In conjunction with the design studio, students partook in a REVIT training class with a REVIT professional and several representatives from Autodesk in order to learn the fundamentals of BIM, its power as a design tool, and its importance in the future of the profession. All final images and 3d modeling was produced in REVIT. Students designed specific bulidings in groups as part of a larger campus master plan. The Cartesia Freshwater Gallery served as a central gathering space with a large lobby and passage through to the river on the north end of the site. A simple office bar is penetrated by a large gallery space creating movement towards the river and provided a large multipurpose space to hold events and display work and research being done by those in the freshwater research campus.

This vacant 16 acre site, at the intersection of First and Greenfield Streets, is dominated by the 9 story sheer face of Rockwell Automation’s headquarters. This site is a highly visible location on 1st Ave. and redevelopmnet will create critical momentum and set the tone for the district’s revival. Its development is also necessary in order to act as a “gateway” into the Solvay Coke site and the UWM School of Fresh Water Science located on the other side of the railroad tracks.
The Foundry: A Stadium for Milwaukeeâ€™s Inner Harbor
Milwaukee, Wisconsin 2012 - UWM Graduate Thesis Project Advisors: Jim Wasley, Mike Utzinger, Greg Thomson
Site Goals Modern stadiums are typically placed in a suburban location surrounded by a sea of parking. This proposal for an Inner Harbor Stadium seeks to address key issues to create a succesful urban stadium that brings life and growth to Milwaukee's near south side. - Proximity to city center, near commercial, residential, and industrial areas is key - Connections to various transit options - Walkability from surrounding neighborhoods and connection to Milwaukee Riverwalk
Program Without diverse programmatic elements, an MLS-specific stadium may host only 30 events per year, and sit inactive for a majority of the year. In order to sustain activity on site and promote economic growth this proposal incorporates: - 20,000 seat stadium with concert stage - 110,550 ft2 - office space - 17,720 ft2 - ground floor retail - public fitness/indoor soccer center - outdoor/indoor professional training facilities - professional team administrative offices

inc existing dock wall
modified dock wall The Urban Edge Studio was a sponsored course that collaborated with renowned planner, artist, and urban hydrologist Herbert Dreiseitl. This site in Milwaukeeâ€™s Inner Harbor is highly contaminated and used for the storage of coal. The theme of water is dominant on site with the new School of Freshwater Science being built and the hope that this area can be an innovative development that makes Milwaukee the leader in water technologies research and manufacturing. In keeping with this theme, this plan seeks to emphasize water and create a unified scheme for a variety of uses. All stormwater is managed on site in an interconnected network of linear gardens that collect, transport, and clean the water before it is released back into the harbor. Two early ideas helped drive the genesis of this design. First was the exploration and manipulation of the currogated dock wall present on site. It was perforated to create a permeable boundary along the waterâ€™s edge to create points of intersection. These crossing points became balancing points where the docks reach out into the water, and the harbor reaches into the site. Finally, a central feature is the reuse of an existing coal barge on site. The barge is repurposed as a large swimming and bathing pool for the recreational use of the public. The floating pool allows guests to interact with the harbor by being set in into the water and having a unique perspective of the barges and boats at work.

Solar House Renovation Milwaukee 2011 University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee
During the summer of 2011 I was hired by the School of Architecture and Urban Planning to help renovate the schoolâ€™s 2009 Solar Decathlon competition house. The house was badly water damaged (due to logistic and storage mishaps) and had to be completely gutted and the mold remediated. Much of the custom woodwork was unsalvagable and the walls were taken back to studs. As a part of a team, I helped demo, design, and renovate the interior, and design/build exterior features such as the elevated deck surround, benches, and planters. Individually I generated ideas regarding the open interior space. The goal was to use color to express the history of the house and the design features that were damaged and removed. I also designed/ordered materials for the flooring scheme using Marmoleum-Click tiles. The pattern expresses exposed beams overhead, previous room divisions of the house, and the diagonal line of the roof valley above.

This project came out of the necessity for funiture when moving to a new city, and the desire to have a hands-on summer project. The design was based on general measurements of its contents (dvd cases, Nintendo games, game consoles, etc.). It is a simple box shape with internal dividers set back from the outside edge to give depth and variety. Holes on the bottom shelf provide the ability to insert dowels to subdivide the shelving sections to fit a variety of media and functions. A dowel runs the length of the unit as a backstop for dvd cases ensuring that all cases line up and are easily stored. The simple box design was a result of my design tendencies to have all design elements neatly contained in an organized framework with variety and detail. All items fit precisely and sapce is provided in the rear for running and organizing the many chords needed. Sizing of the different pieces was based on the use of two 4' x 8' sheets of MDF. After completion of its construction, the entertainment center has proven to be very sturdy, perhaps overly so, and has great functionality for a variety of uses and item arrangements.
