LANDSCAPE RECLAMATION

INVERNESS

This landscape reclamation project involved a basic understanding of ecosystem restoration, using principles of landscape engineering, a knowledge of a range of technical issues associated with derelict land and a creative resolution through design at a range of scales and strategically over time. My main concept for this project was to explore an idea that could evolve over time. Through research and development I decided to experiment with a renewable energy park. As we had to write our own brief, a strategy plan was vital. This strategy plan needed to show what was important in our reclamation design. For me, the view across the Moray Firth was a fundemental aspect to reconnect this detached site and as mentioned previously, a concept that could evolve over time was crucial.

MASTERPLAN AND ENGINEERING PROPOSALS DETAIL ENERGY GENERATING STALKS

I chose to abstract my masterplan due to the experimental nature of this project. The main objects of my renewable energy park were energy generating kites, energy generating wind stalks and greenhouses run off the excess methane on the existing landfill site. These were intergrated into the site to create a bespoke solution to the ever growing need of renewable energy. Using AutoCAD ensured that my engineering proposals were accurate.

URBAN REGENERATION

FORT WILLIAM

GROUP WORK

This group project was directly focussed on urban space making and reclaiming lost land. There were many issues concerning the lack of connectivity between the high street and the waterfront and these were issues we needed to resolve. The brief asked for 250 units of residential/commercial and office space along with other buildings such as a hotel, hostel and museum. Working in a team always provides insight of how a proffessional company may work and for this project, our group worked collaboratively to achieve a well constructed, thought out design which not only accomplished the assessment objectives but which pushed the boundaries of the brief.

REGENERATION GROUP WORK

LEITH DOCKS

The brief for this project asked for 75 units on the site of Leith Docks whilst still creating beautifully thought out public and private spaces. After research, ispiration and development our masterplan was completed with sufficient time to focuss on making a presentation model that was of a proffessional standard. Using woodwork to achieve this was a new skill and clearly demonstrated our final design in a 3D format.

DETAIL DESIGN BELLO

PORTO-

This project was focussed on engineering proposals specific to your design. The site I chose was Portobello promenade and my main concept was the idea of beach huts. This provided me with enough details to research including how the beach huts would sit on the ground, the steps leading to the huts, how the fencing and gates would fix and then planting and paving. I enjoyed this project immensly and using AutoCad gave me a new confidence with my work.

URBAN DESIGN

KIRKNEWTON

This project taught us to deal with the main issues surrounding urban design. The topography and harsh climate of the site gave for an interesting yet complex design project. Contours were a large part of my concept for this particular project. I created a tiered site with dense trees and planting running along the contours for a more sheltered environment for each house. I wanted to create a pedestrian friendly atmosphere throughout thus designing a shared space. Due to the vast green space surrounding this particular site, I wanted to devise a wild meadow area which sits on the east side of the site. As with many of my projects, using AutoCAD was helpful to draw up a more accurate masterplan and sections.

-GLASS IN CONTEXT-

GLASS IN CONTEXT Chosing glass as an elective was a great way to learn a new art. Being able to experiment with sand blasting, glass painting and soldering gave me a new way of working and modelling. I decided I wanted to incorporate what I was learning in this elective into my design work. I chose to build a 3D visualisation of my landscape reclamation design in Inverness. I felt this was a completely new way of working and brought my vision into reality by way of a concep tual model. Glass work is something I hope to take further in my work.

-FIRST YEAR SKETCHING-

FIRST YEAR SKETCHING This was the first project we were given at ECA. We were too look at four different sites in Edinburgh’s city centre and draw them up on plan, section and sketches. I think it’s important to have drawing skills as well as computing skills in Landscape Architecture which is why I have put these sketches in my portfolio. This first project really gave us an insight into what is required technical drawing and sketching wise of a Landscape Architect and I will definitely take these skills into my working life.
