urban park This urban park is located in downtown Athens, Georgia.

The site is about .75 acres and was originally a cotton warehouse. Currently, only the foundation of that warehouse still exists. This park is a larger version of a pocket park serving Athens by providing the downtown district with respite from the urban fabic. The site utilizes filtered stormwater to power a water game for children. After the water runs though the game, it is deposited in a gravel catchement area to filter back into the ground water system. The materials are all recycled concrete and locally sourced granite. All plantings are native to Georgia. This project was rendered by hand with Sharpie markers and Micron pens. It took me a total of 3 hours to render the project and 5 hours to generate the design itself.

master plan

the space between two buildings on the north campus of the University of Georgia. The design creates a new space between these buildings to serve as a new corridor so that the College of Enviroment and Design can host events and display student work. The site has two levels and is completely enclosed with a glass and steel frame retrofitted to the existing buildings.

Southlake Village is a total of 46 acres with 22 acres of civic space for pedestrians to enjoy.

The design supports a walkable city, multi-use buildings, and different modes of transportation. There is 414,540 sq ft. of retail/office/loft space available, which would require a minimum of 1,658 parking spaces. As the development progresses, the design supports the construction of at least three parking decks. The parking decks serve to eliminate unnecessary gray space and increase the amount of green space. The design also has 40 on street parking spaces on the proposed road for immediate access to businesses on the northern side of the development. The bike lanes proposed in the design are raised six inches to create a visual barrier for automobiles. New forms of transportation are key in the development of Morrow as a progressive city, and creating a bicycle culture in the Southlake Village will initiate the desire for different forms of transportation.

MASTER PLAN


southlake park There are several different

water features in the Southlake design. Water serves to bring people together and helps to create white noise to drown out the surrounding traffic, establishing the parks as a peaceful enviroment in which pedestrians can relax. The forms created by the sidewalks are organic and allow for pedestrians to explore the site in many different ways while promoting a contemporary feel. The design encourages exploration of Southlake Village by giving pedestrians landmarks to draw them through the site. SOUTHLAKE PARK

c.a.r.d. master plan SENIOR TERMINUS PROJECT

The Confederate Avenue Retail Distict (CARD) is a mixed use development that is anchored by the Proposed Beltline. The district is designed to fullfull the density requirements as determined by previous reports on the Beltline project. I have several residential complexes and a retail district along Confederate Ave. The parking is to be limited to the underground parking deck in the Civic center, Apartments, and garages in the Townhomes. Confederate Avenue Retail Distict utlilizes the proposed multimodal center to allow easy access to the Beltline trains and to MARTA. These alternative forms of transportation will create a enviroment that encourages citizens to explore pedestrian friendly enviroments.
