AUBREY MICHELLE MORRIS ARCHITECTURE DESIGN PORTFOLIO


PERSONAL STATEMENT

A broad spectrum of architecture and planning discourses interest me. Humans and nature should be embraced equally in our built environments. With sustainable, mixed use, and dense architectural infill and additions designed to consider ecological and human needs, buildings can promote safety, health, and comfort.

ADDITION/RENOVATION SITE PLAN: NTS

Marvin Lecture Hall adds auditorium space to the early 1900s Marvin Hall architecture building. The design responds to design elements the existing university building is lacking. The program includes a cafe and lounge space that double as reception for lecture events and guest overflow can spill out onto the outdoor patio. Also, there is an interstitial gallery space between the cafe located in the existing building and the auditorium. The design takes advantage of natural elements to regulate student comfort in the spaces. 21 ACOUSTIC PANEL SOUND REFLECTIONS SECTION DIAGRAM: NTS

EXISTING LANDMARKS OF PALERMO

The existing Foro Umberto park in Palermo leaves a lot to be desired. This proposal involves excavation that reveals broken city rubble, a physical reminder of rebuilding after ruin. The park is currently a scarcely visited city treasure. Proposing movement, spectacles, and attractions to a newly formed park island will invite locals and tourists alike to the rethought park structure. Joining a French student on their thesis project research and branching off into our separate designs provides a design discourse of decisions made and culturally related commentary on change in a historically rich project site.

LURE

The park is currently separated from the city by a busy street and the city is disconnected from the sea by the park. Reconnecting the park to the city with bridges will give residents a route to the park while giving them time to pass over the water. H ISTO R Y

REV EA L CULTURE/HISTOIRE

ENTERTAIN

The site was originally formed by infill consisting of rubble from World War I. By excavating and moving the park, the post-war pieces of the city will be revealed to the current population by making a spectacle of the park movement from inland to island.

SITE PLAN: NTS

The Brunesau district in Paris is a newly zoned area for highrises in a city which has restricted building heights since the Hausmann city planning was implemented. Like many of Europe’s architecture projects, these will be chosen from competition entries. Our objective was to create a highrise that would fit into this new scheme for an urban section of Paris that would be up to par with many other competing world cities.

Magazine Street in New Orleans, Louisiana is the perfect site for a community outreach center that combines commercial spaces with learning and performing spaces. A prominent feature in New Orleans architecture is the porch and balcony combination which bridges the private functions with the public functions.

DIGITAL MODEL PANEL PLACEMENT OPTIONS

SITE: UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS, LAWRENCE, KANSAS

This design/build project celebrates phenomenology in conjunction with the parametric interface. The temporary installation’s design provides a sole user with solitude on a busy university campus while still allowing them to adjust their level of being seen by passersby. The repetition of longitudinal wooden slats in panels and the rotating of these panels around a core post was determined with the use of Grasshopper within the Rhinoceros computer program.
