I am motivated by my knowledge that landscape is a potent agent of movement. landscape yields behavioral stimuli independent of the designer’s agency. A girl dipping her feet in the river for the first time is not an isolated event; rather, her action exists in an interdependent system of social and behavioral stimuli. landscape’s agency to move has an undeniable effect on these systems, whether we know it or not.

IMMUNITY

Texas ASLA Honor Award, 2018

combating gentrification in suburban Houston The fundamental discrepancy that fuels the spread of gentrification is misaligned interest. External forces that fail to consider the interests of existing communities effect misguided change and growth at the expense of existing residents. Furthermore, the ongoing discussion around gentrification is heavily nuanced and sensitive; solutions are not easily prescribed. Our team aimed to prioritize the community’s voice in three ways: approaching the challenge through the lens of an

LIGHT LINES

art in landscape with Cameron Campbell

professional // campbell landscape architecture november 2018 // austin, texas

(description adapted from Campbella website) Light Lines is an abstract immersion of pulsating light, sound and form. Using an assembly of interconnected electroluminescent wires that suspend from a structural grid spanning 40 feet over an active waterway, Light Lines collectively forms an intense volume of changing light and ambient sound driven by over 1,000 individual sources. This project is Cameron Campbell’s winning

submission to the Creek Show, an annual installation event staged by Austin’s Waller Creek Conservancy. This 2018 show drew over 40,000 visitors during its 12 nights of opening. I was heavily involved from concept to construction and was given primary responsibility in design development, materials research and sourcing, consultant coordination, and construction administration.

LOCAL, LEGIBLE

an internship with Cameron Campbell As a student of landscape architecture, it is easy to become a slave to the graphic. During my internship at Campbell Landscape Architecture in Austin, I worked under someone who is a mover and doer - a trusted and highly-regarded shaper of the local landscape. I aspire to build my reputation as a designer in a similar fashion: giving precedence to the realization of architectural vision rather than to its medium of communication. This internship mainly taught me 2 valuable lessons:

professional // campbell landscape architecture june - december 2018 // austin, texas the marriage of effective communication with artful representation, and confidence in discomfort. I was consistently forced to learn quickly and efficiently. This young, small firm is rapidly gaining visibility; I made the most of this unique opportunity to participate in business usually conducted behind closed doors, conversations usually held amongst a select few, and I took ownership of responsibilities typically assigned to interns.

HARSH BEAUTY

an internship with Christy Ten Eyck Christy Ten Eyck has built a body of work which celebrates the inherent beauty of Texas and the southwest, the culture of its people and the sacred path of water, pioneering contemporary regionalism in the southwest. While working under Christy Ten Eyck, I gained a deep respect for the outstanding body of work that she has to her name. I have resolved to emulate the level of contextual respect that can be traced through each one of her projects.

professional // ten eyck landscape architects summer 2017 // austin, texas During this internship, I contributed to various stages of numerous projects, including RFPs, takeoffs, schematic design, design development, 3d modeling, renderings, construction documentation, and construction administration. I was also very fortunate to have been frequently involved in client and consultant meetings at this early stage of my academic career. I gained invaluable perspective during my experience at this company.

EXPLORATIONS

miscellaneous studies Contained in the following pages is an amorphous selection of my work in various media. Since transitioning my academic focus from natural sciences to landscape architecture, I have challenged myself to actively participate in the cycle of discovering and developing my faculty to create. It is not a comfortable process, nor am I often satisfied with my work; yet, the occasional reward seems to be enough to inspire me. I think that people create for different reasons, and I have consistently

personal // studio work, sketchbook, gifts 2014 - 2019 found the greatest fulfillment in creating for the enjoyment of others. The reward is easily taken for granted - a grin, a curiousity piqued, .. .................................................................................................. a girl dipping her feet in the river for the first time The objective impermanence of the reward in creating something for someone has become an indelible source of motivation for me. Each of my explorative design acts is framed by the motivating agency of creation for people, and designing landscapes for people.
