ECUSTA PARK

ACADEMIC | ARCH AND LANDSCAPE Location: Brevard, NC Time frame: January - May 2012 Concept: Ecusta Activity Center is a proposed project located on the site of a former paper mill. The Ecusta Mills property holds a significant place in the town’s history, employing as many as 1 in 6 people at its peak. The closing of the mill left a significant scar on the community and the land, and this project seeks to re-engage the community through the implementation of a needed public resource and to heal the land in an ecologically responsible and educational manner.

STRUCTURED FLEXIBILITY

ACADEMIC | ARCH AND LANDSCAPE Location: Fayetteville, Georgia Time frame: September-November 2013 Concept: The design provides a primary structure that offers secondary and tertiary areas of flexibility, movement, distraction, complexity and mystery from within. The movement across each “zone” provides areas for a range of activities meant to accommodate a range of user types - especially considering those with autism spectrum disorders. Key concepts include: flexibility of spaces, range of materials and textures, legible hyposensitive and hypersensitive areas.

CONSTRUCTED GROUND

ACADEMIC | ARCH AND LANDSCAPE Location: Charlottesville, Virginia Time frame: September-November 2011 Concept: The artist’s gallery is pushed into the landscape, buried in the hill. The artist’s living quarters is located above the existing shell, allowing for views to the river and tracks. The new layers are inserted on a shifted grid in reaction to the existing grid of the existing structures. This allows for a distinction to be made between new and existing. The studio was a conceptual generator, both formally and programmatically, and a creative laboratory of architectural ideas and process.

PRESERVATION AS PROVOCATION COMPETITION | ARCH AND LANDSCAPE Location: Charleston, South Carolina Time frame: September-November 2013 Concept: This design suggests a provocation of time and process, experienced and interpreted within the land and sea-scape. The design introduces a set of environmentally sensitive infrastructural elements, which, over time, promote and give-way to ecological processes. Oyster culture, dune habitat restoration, and beach erosion control are all used to protect and restore the island in the middle of Charleston Harbor. The island’s habitat, welcome pavilion and promenade engage a range of user types and ages, exposing the castle to historical and eco tourism .

urban ecological restoration

TANYARD TERRACES ACADEMIC | LANDSCAPE

Location: Athens, Georgia Time frame: November 2012 Concept: The design considers the site as the new “central point” of the University of Georgia’s campus. With planned development around the site and the definite implementation of a new dining hall adjacent to the creek, an increase in pedestrian use is imminent. Although stream restoration is a goal for the project, the design focuses on habitat restoration and user interaction. A series of terraces serve to broaden the flood plain while providing recreational and leisure space for students. The terraces also work as a bioretention system, engaging and educating users. Notable metrics include a 21% decrease in impervious surface area, a 100% reduction of directlyconnected impervious areas, and 21,625 square feet of restored native plant communities.

TRANSYLVANIA ACTIVITY CENTER ACADEMIC | ARCHITECTURE

Location:Pisgah Forest, North Carolina Time frame: November 2011 Concept: A much needed resource, Transylvania Activity Center provides a natatorium, basketball courts, tennis courts, soccer fields, and other exercise areas for the surrounding community. The project is an investigation into the materiality and structure of tensile systems, and investigates how these systems engage with the ground and landscape and how they enhance the pedestrian experience.

MASONRY PAVILION ACADEMIC | ARCHITECTURE

Location: Concord, North Carolina Time frame: February 2010 Concept: This project is an exploration of masonry as an architectural material, and of site and human engagement. The pavilion is positioned to interact with “nature”: the sky, trees along the site’s edge, wind, and structures throughout the landscape.

landscape construction and interior design

[IN]SPIRE PAVILION

ACADEMIC | DETAIL DESIGN Location: Athens, Georgia Timeframe: March 2013 Concept: This project is a part of two academic projects. It combines the exploration of a landscape construction project with the detail and interior design of an private arts pavilion. The existing building shell is re-used as an art gallery and studio, with a boardwalk addition leading through an outdoor sculpture garden.

urban vertical farm collaborative

TURRIM VICTUS

ACADEMIC | ARCHITECTURE

physical models

Location: Houston Texas Timeframe: April 2011 Concept: The project is a new interpretation of the American traditional farm, taking the horizontal farming methodology and transforming it into a high density, technologically advanced vertical farm that uses far less land area, water, and energy. This building includes more than fifty housing units, nearly four acres of aquaponic farm area, and a fresh market that sales produce and fish harvested from the farm. Selling the produce on site completely negates the footprint created from transporting goods. Biodiesel is produced from corn, algae, and soy grown on the farm, and is distributed via a pump station below the car storage. Making the change from regular gasoline to biodiesel would have a dramatically positive effect on the environment of Houston and similar cities that rely so heavily on the automobile. vertical farm structural bay

mapping activity and change in a vulnerable neighborhood

MAPPING FLUX

ACADEMIC | MAPPING Location: Charlotte, North Carolina Time frame: February 2011 Concept: This project is a set of maps compiled over the course of half a semester. The maps were creating primarily using in-situ observation while referencing historic and current aerial photographs. The intent is to critically analyze a vulnerable neighborhood in south Charlotte (known as Belmont) and suggest a new public infrastructure designed to revitalize the community from the inside - out. Research, community engagement, and critical design analysis were key elements in the creation process. The maps and drawings demonstrate various issues and topics examined.

competition for UGA College of Environment and Design’s student publication

GEORGIA LANDSCAPE MAGAZINE COVER DESIGN COMPETITION | GRAPHIC DESIGN Time frame: February 2013 & 2014 Concept: An annual cover design competition is held for the Georgia Landscape Magazine. Although not used individually, these cover designs were used by the staff to create the ultimate design. I entered the competition both of my years at UGA, with both submissions resulting in runner-up placement. I created all images and graphics used in the cover designs.

environmental graphics for Athens CHaRM

CHaRM BRANDING

PROFESSIONAL | ENV. GRAPHICS Location: Athens, Georgia Client: ACC Recycling Division Time frame: February 2014 Concept: Building off a design charrette executed with the Center for Community Design and Preservation, I was asked to develop new logos and environmental graphics for the Athens Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM). The Athens Waste Management Division has acquired a new site and intend to open the CHaRM site next year. They are inheriting a post-industrial property which includes a historic trash incinerator, and seek to build a stronger relationship with the Athens community and neighborhood surrounding the site.

TAILGATE TOWER

PRO BONO | GRAPHICS & DESIGN Website: tailgatetower.bigbossbrewing.com Time frame: January 2014 Project Team: Owen Tingle, Nick Brenton Concept: Centered around the 2014 Super Bowl tailgating rules controversy, I was approached by McKinney Advertising’s Durham office to assist in the design and graphic representation for an idea to promote Big Boss Brewery.

NFL Rule: “You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in your car. And provided you’re in the boundaries of a single parking space, you’ll be able to eat or drink right next to your car. However, you’re not going to be able to take out a lounge chair, you’re not going to be able to take out a grill, and you’re not going to be able to take up more than one parking space.”

PROFESSIONAL | GRAPHIC DESIGN design a professional monograph for Greg’s career as a Camp Design specialist. His forty year career provides a fantastic range of project type, scale, location, and clientele. I worked directly with him in the writing and layout design for the project. Expected to be completed and published in 2014, the project will be the second of a series of books documenting common


issues, strategies, and opportunities present in camp design using Greg’s career and his recent work with Domokur Architects as a case study. The book is organized chronologically, and it’s content includes original drawings from the 1970s to contemporary renderings completed this year. Phil Lanier and Mike Domokur are also important partners in the proj-

ect, and were integral in the design and development throughout the process.
