OTHER WORK


Designing with Water Fall 2017 Instructor: John Klingman

New Orleans has experienced great issues with flooding in its streets, turning water into an unwanted presence. This project works on an urban scale to bring ‘living with water’ to the forefront of New Orleans residents with the display of water retention and filtration. Not only does the project offer flood retention on and processing for on-site and neighboring water, but it gives the residents an ephemeral water experience. Water acts as a journey that takes visitors through different steps of how it can be naturally filtered. It supports a park, a view, a place for art, a garden and a pool. For the resident, water becomes an experience and a passive strategy of cooling. Software: Rhinoceros, Renderings post-processed in Adobe Photoshop

SITE The studio initial focus was upon the site itself. The entire 7 block site was to be converted back into a residential area. Although the program was largely residential, it included mixed-use on the buildings facing North Rampart and an information center on the corner facing Congo Square, giving tourists of the French Quarter to explore the mainly residential Treme Neighborhood for its rich cultural heritage.

LIVING

Building on North Rampart


Not only does the project offer flood retention on and processing for on-site and neighboring water, but it gives the residents an ephemeral water experience. Water is portrayed as a journey that takes visitors through different steps of how it can be naturally filtered. Water is offered as a park, a view, a place for art, a garden and a pool. For the resident, water becomes an experience and a passive strategy of cooling, by deploying it to run from the roof of their homes, into the exterior corridor, controlled by a water basin. The hallways are transformed by the sound of the water falling and the light refracted by the water.

Growing Up Fall 2016 Instructor: John Lim National University of Singapore

A project done in Singapore focusing on the country’s challenges of space, with the solution of a vertical farm. With the oil industry slowly dwindling in the face of alternative energy, the industry is searching for new possibilities for the rigs besides the extraction of crude oil. This vertical farm explored the ideal geometries of the crop massing for solar optimization, in addition to the individual rotating crop systems based upon a hydroponic system that would optimize gathering for the workers. This concept to be repeated in various locations around the world and oer respite to food shortages, as well as an awe-inspiring place to visit. Software: Rhinoceros, Renderings post-processed in Adobe Photoshop

The crop systems upon the oil rig were tested with dierent geometry. In order to optimize the sunlight reaching the plants. After the geometry was found, additional structural support had to be added to the legs of the Jack-Up in order to hold the crop systems and walking paths for the farm workers.

The Writer’s Room A Collaborative Design-Build Studio Instructor: Emily Taylor-Welty Spring 2017

A project built with the design-build studio at the Tina & Albert Small Center for Collaborative Design, in collaboration with Big Class, a New Orleans nonprofit. The Writer’s Room offers a space of inspiration and calm that differs from the normal classroom. It represents a space that young writers can spend time in to explore their creative writing. The design concept was based on the idea of individual ribs that house all of the room’s program, including the lighting, shelving and seating. Software: Rendering taken from Sketch-Up and post-processed in Adobe Photoshop

A School for Dance Spring 2016 Instructor: Emily Baker

A comprehensive studio project creating a dance studio in the Central Business District of New Orleans, with a focus on supplying documentation for HVAC, structure, shading, and natural cooling systems. A structural louver system provides shading to the outside windows, and then curves under the building to become a prominent feature for the interior experience. It carves through the building, as a dancer through space, providing structure for the circulation and an evaporative cooling waterfall. Software: Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Renderings post-processed in Adobe Photoshop

The site is located near the civic theater, at the border between the French Quarter and the Central Business district. Its corner location with the protecting louvers created a meeting space, protected from the sun.

Building Arts Center Fall 2015 Instructor: Kentaro Tsubaki

This project is based upon the analysis of two sites in New Orleans. The ďŹ nal site choice is located in the Bywater near the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (N.O.C.C.A.) and the Mississippi. The site lies on a corridor of light-industrial zoning between two dierent types of residential zoning, creating an interesting open corridor. With a railroad running parallel and a electrical tower standing directly next to the land, the property was a challenge but also with a particular trait of centrality.

Site Mapping


As a connection with the traditional metal work of New Orleans and a study of a material, that will be worked with in the center, the facade of the main building is lined with wrought iron panels that run perpendicular to the glazed walls. The panels acts a louvers for the building and protect from solar gain. The eects of the panels vary based upon the direct and source of the light, the opacity of the panels and the angles from where someone approaches the building, creating dierent environments within.

Museum of the City Fall 2014 A partner project with Paul Holmes Instructor: Cordula Roser-Gray

This project is based upon the analysis of a site on Bayou road at a neighborhood and city-wide analysis. The museum of the city creates a space for the neighborhood to present the history of Bayou road and to gather. The concept of the museum is based upon the road itself, as Bayou road cut through the normal New Orleans grid. Software: Photoshop to render hand-drafting

A Virginia home worked on with Marianne Desmarais. The home was designed to fit into the neighborhood’s aesthetic standards from the front, while offering a more modern environment in the back. Solar studies were conducted to offer the best views of the lake in the background, without the morning sun reflecting in the bathrooms mirrors. This work included structural plans, topography and roofing.

Weekend Workshop with T+E+A+M February 23 - 25, 2018 Partnered with Jordan Tavan This weekend focused on photogrammetry, a technique used to translate physical objects into digital space. The workshop focused on overlaying multiple textures upon a three-dimensional object. The two-dimensional textures are shaped upon the forms. The textures inuence the arrangement of the forms as the forms inuence how the textures fall upon the spacial arrangement.

Entrance Walkway Stage

Beam

Concrete

Office

Bathroom

Column

Types of Materials

Roof The top of building that protect that below from weather

DESIGN A SPACE

Worksheet Booklet for PlayBuild Summer 2017 A booklet of worksheets designed for Pl@yMLK, an annual festival for the nonprofit PlayBuild. Each worksheet contains a design-based activity for children ages 5-10. These activities are meant to be done in Central City for the children to explore the neighborhood and discover potential design opportunities. Software: Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop

BUILD A CITY 2 Think!

Who Built Dat? Do these shapes look familiar?

Shipping Container

LOOK AROUND

Corrugated Steel

PLAYBUILD!

Wood

How do you get from one part of the city to another? Do you walk? bike? take a bus or drive? What do you have to cross to get there? Bridges? Interstates?

The Myrtle Banks Building was orginally a school built in 1910 by the architect E.A. Christy. In 2013 construction began to transform the former school to include many different uses, such as the Dryades Market!

What buildings also have these shapes?

Think! If Dryades weren’t a market, what other space could this be?

Walk around the neighborhood, look up, look around and see if you can spot them!

Draw! Draw! What would you need to make that space? What would go in it?

(Photo: Rebecca Ratliff)

Create a plan of the city showing how you would connect them to get to them easily. Focus of the paths. Then talk about in a group!
