Tower on the River Arch 573 Spring 2012 - UIUC Grad. School Technology and Performance (Integrated Design) Professor Michael Kyong - Il, PhD., AIA The site is within a prominent location of Chicago: the River North Gallery District. At the early stages of the city’s birth, this district was used as an industrial and warehouse sector. Recently, it has experienced immense changes: the development of several high-rise structures, the increase in nightlife activity (primarily due to the sprouting of night clubs and bars) and the continued opening of various restaurants. Sitting at 401 North Wabash Avenue, on the northern edge of the main stem of the Chicago River, the site takes on a unique outline, due to the river’s bend. Although odd in shape, this plot of land offers uninterrupted view corridors from the north, east and south. The site was once occupied by a stand-alone building, the former Chicago Sun-Times headquarters, but was demolished in 2004. The studio was assigned a ‘real-life’ project scenario, where a client, in this case Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, presented a list of program requirements which included retail amenities, a health club and spa, a restaurant, condominiums, and a hotel. The studio was responsible for designing a solution based of these criteria. The focus of Tower on the River is to achieve functionality, aesthetic and investment value, constructability, social and contextual responsiveness, and preservation of design quality through an integrated design approach. The concept of the building evolved from the curves of the adjacent river and its position along Wabash Avenue. Furthermore, the main idea behind Tower on the River was to design an iconic building within the historic Chicago skyline.
- provide welcoming pathways for pedestrians - establish a north river walk - connect to south river walk
- bridge Michigan Ave. to State St.
- reflect proximity to the river through design

The Lemp Brewery Library Arch 574 Fall 2011 - UIUC Grad. School Adaptive Reuse in Architecture Professor Paul H. Kapp AIA The Lemp Brewery Complex was originally built in 1864 and is located in southeast St. Louis along Broadway, just south of anheuser-busch. It is approximately thirteen acres with twenty-seven buildings featuring interior streets and plazas. All of the buildings are masonry in construction; some of which have concrete and steel structures with several buildings using heavy timber “mill” construction. The goal of the joint studio is to apply historic preservation practices within the guidelines of the secretary of interior’s standards to reach a successful post-industrial redevelopment.

The Capacious Chapel Arch 574 Fall 2010 - UIUC Grad. School Craft & Concept in Architecture Professor Jeffery S. Poss FAIA This studio presents issue-oriented building problems which focus on the design of human scale elements and the spaces they can inspire. As a method for assuring focus on conceptual detailing the usual architectural design process is reversed: Instead of approaching the subject from the outside to inside, or from the whole to part, the student designs at the intimate scale and then moves into larger scale, or from the part to the whole. This approach suggests that the essence of a design can be discovered within a fragment of the whole. There are two components of this project. The first involves the design and construction of a full-scale furniture piece â€“ in this case a table. The second involves the transformation of this object into an architectural construct â€“ a pavilion.

Jenâ€™s Deck Summer 2011 - Urbana, Illinois Design/Build Project Master Carpenter, Sam Bricker The client and owner of the house contacted Sam Bricker and I to design and build her a deck. She expressed an interest in gardening, entertaining, and providing a smooth transition to the backyard. I worked closely with the client to come up with an appropriate design that fit her needs and budget. Afterwards, I played a large role in the actual construction of the deck I was one of two man crew. The deck was built with a combination of treated and cedar lumber and took a week to build. She is very happy with the outcome.
