Chicago Children’s Hospital 4th year: Prof. Keven Moore Fall 2010

This was a 20 week long project in which a children’s hospital that is around 500,00 square feet. The main focus of this hospital is on the patient floors. They are developed around a central sun space where all the public functions are located, including a waiting area; the children’s play area, elevator and stair lobby. Patient rooms on the north side shift in and out and realign to provide spectacular views of Lake Michigan and Seneca Park. As the room’s shift, windows open up on the sides to reduce glare and provide more views. In the center of the hospital, parents, visitors and staff transfer at a sky lobby creating an active public place. This place includes a rehab center, cafeteria, chapel, and a healing roof garden. This large internal public space also separates visitors to in-patient and outpatient care. On The ground floor, drop-off and pick-up is similar to the women’s hospital next door. This allows a green walkway between the two hospitals to connect the hospital district to the museum and park on Chicago Avenue.

Auburn Lyceum : Auburn ,AL 3rd year: Prof. Schumacher Fall 2009

Created a space where the various colleges on the Auburn campus could come together to share ideas and participate in other functions such as lectures and other events. The college spaces are on the top two floors with views looking down onto the proposed new green space. This puts the larger gathering spaces on the bottom floor where there are large open bays that can be expanded into the surrounding areas depending on the needs of the events. The skin acts as a shading device that thickens on the southern side to block more light. The openings of the skin also vary depending on the functions of the interior spaces behind them, closing for more privacy and opening for circulation.

MUSEUM PROPOSAL BY: Bob Benner & David Dewees

TEXTILE MILL RENOVATION 3rd year: Prof. Schumacher Fall 2009

PROGRAMATIC ELEMENTS -Machine Gallery -Native American Gallery -Cafe -After Hours Events -Movies -Festivals -Office Space -Gallery Storage -Gift Shop -Outdoor Catering

This project focused on renovating the interior and exterior of a textile mill in Tallassee, Alabama to better suit gallery functions. My partner and I came up with an over-all scheme for the building and individual proposals for a room. In the machine room rope was used as a wall element to divide the spaces but still allow the visitor to see through it. The walls were woven, as was the path you followed to move through the space. The woven wall was also in the stairwell to unite the upstairs and the downstairs.

INTERIOR PERSPECTIVES 2nd year: Prof. Dagg Spring 2009

Created a series of perspective drawings ranging from line to analytique drawings of an interior space with the purpose to explore the use of perspectives as a design tool and how color and material can change the feel of a space.

RIVER WALK NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM 2nd year: Prof. Dagg SPRING 2009

This project was an exploration of the capacity of wood and how to use it as the primary structure of large open spaces. Hyperbolic parabolas were used to create a curved exterior skin on the side of the hill where the museum sits. The layout was based on the curve of the hill and two offset circles which determined the size of the bays and the height of the roof. This project received third place in the Alabama Forestry Wood Design Competition, which is a 2nd year competition in which a primarily wooden building is designed.

Rural studio :courtyard house 2nd Year:Elena Barthel/John Marusich FALL 2008

Worked with 15 other students to design and start building the house. The first half was intended to be designed and built by the fall semester and then expanded by 17 other students in the spring semester. The house was built for 64-year-old Rose Lee Turner and her two sons, BJ and Jason. The house, when finished, was three bedrooms one bath.

COFFEE HOUSE Summer 2008

This assignment consisted of a narrow but long empty lot located in downtown Auburn, AL, that was to be used to design a coffee/music cafe. By using rectangles of various sizes, I created large open spaces with the continuos repetition of the same shape. Rectangles of varying opacity were used on the exterior to give more variety.

Semester Abroad: Florence, Italy 3rd year: Prof. Elena Barthel Spring 2010

I went to Florence, Italy for the spring of my 3rd year for the entire semester. This is a series of sketches, water color, and digital work that I did. Some of the digital work was done for a graphic design class in which a personal logo , business card for the department , and paper architecture projects were done.
