URBAN PERFORMANCE Harvard, Career Discovery 2012 Site: Boston, MA This student project is a redesign of the Back Bay Fens. Based upon initial on- and off-site analysis, the new design focuses on nexus between performance and programming. Through topographic and vegetative strategies the new design maximizes the park’s resiliency to minor and major flood events and creates significant upland stormwater capacity. The same strategies create a more diverse , engaging experience for passive and active recreation on and along the previously underutilized river; they also help manage the different modes of movement through the space and create new programming opportunities. The interface between the water and land is transformed to encourage interaction. The exterior of the park has been reimagined to improve its relationship to adjacent thoroughfares and institutions.

THE TOPOGRAPHIC IMAGINARY Harvard, Career Discovery 2012 Site: San Jose, CA This student project is an exploration of the ground surface through topographic manipulation. The contours of a specific landform, chosen from a precedent study, are altered through various transformations and form the basis for a unique field condition. One iteration, shown here, is explored further through model and perspective to consider form and programming.

eight of Frame Perspectives

This student report analyzes the characteristics of Freyberg Square in regards to its spatial characteristics, function, typology, programming, edge conditions, and geographic and descriptive context within the City. The report concludes that the square, while well defined by its larger surroundings, would benefit from a softer, more visually and pedestrian permeable definition of the inner square.

MILL RIVER MASTER PLAN Stoss Landscape Urbanism, 2012 Site: New Haven, CT This professional work diagrams three different scenarios for an industrial district along the Mill River. The scenarios span a range of responses to more frequent inundation, from natural attenuation to an intensively engineered solution. Each scenario builds capacity and increases recreation opportunities as a driver for redevelopment. Grading strategies are employed to create stormwater parks and resilient development sites. Each scenario includes both immediate and long-term actions. (With Scott Bishop, Associate Principle and Jill Allen, Associate Planner)

Above: Three scenarios: natural attenuation; paired capacity investment; intensive infrastructure investment.

Right: An alternative scenario examining return on investment for storm surge infrastructure at nearby industrial hub.

BERRY PARK Design Consulting 2012 Brooklyn, NY This consulting project redesigns a rooftop beer garden in Williamsburg (Brooklyn, NY). Through a strategy of vegetative, material and seating variation, the design improves circulation, enhances the microclimate and establishes an identity for the space. The site consists of four distinct experiences: a casual shaded area with low, communal seating; an intimate, enclosed “green� area with beer-hall tables; a lively, dense open air space; and a transitional space to foster intermingling. The proposal includes alternative site plans, a 3D model, and a furnishing/ material study. (With Courtney Tysell of DiG)

Corner lots with potential access from an alley may only be granted a reduction in front property line setback (from 20’ to 15’ in the R4 and R8 zones, or from 15’ to 10’ in the R16 zone) if the garage is facing the alley. Corner lots with potential access from an alley may not receive a reduction in front property line setback if the garage is facing a side property line on a minor or private street).

This collection of professional work includes graphics developed working as City Planner. The conceptual design is for the city-wide template for new municipal bus shelters in McCall, Idaho (constructed 2009). The diagrams are from two legal determinations clarifying local planning & zoning statutes for setbacks and allowable business locations in the downtown business district.
