COMMUNITY CENTER WITH REFUGEE HOUSING

N This area is the community center of the site. North side is mixed uses building, and south side is the community center. On each side of entrance, there are tree planter beds higher than ground level to separated areas. It provides a seating place for people greeting. In order to keep the space more privacy and create a fun walkable experience, many trees are located at the path-ways. When people pass through “forest corridor”, here is a large open space/plaza for community center and refugees’ housing. Pavement in different colors to separated central area to different uses. The outdoor seating areas are sheltered by pergola to create a space more privacy.

We wanted to build around the existing assets that already contribute to the city, preserving elements that already create a draw into the site. Some of these elements include: Transit system, and stops; Industrial architecture; S-Line development/trail; Restaurants; Grid street system. Our deisgn development addressed the pedestrian connectivity of the site East to West through a green open space system.

AMPHITHEATER DESIGN FOR UTAH BOTANICAL CENTER

I designed this amphitheater to provide an area for recreation on the grounds of Utah Botanical Canter. The Materials in the design are similar as the ones used in the surrounding existing site. The amphitheater is divided into three seating areas - one hard, half hard, and green open spaca. On the face wall of the stage, I placed a waterfall that will flow down layered cultural stones. There is a driveway located at the back of the stage to provide a thru-way for facilities. UTAH STATE UNIVERSITY / FALL 2012 BO PANG

COMPACT HOUSING DESIGN AT UTAH STATE UNIV.

This project is a proposed student housing community on the campus of Utah State University. It includes a mixture of married student housing and single student housing adjacent to a commercial area. Existing student housing is small and not very close to any stores or restaurants. To create a more walkable community, we are proposing a commercial area within walking distance of the housing units.

The commercial area is located on the west side of our site. It will include restaurants, stores, and a bus stop to accommodate the residents’ needs within walking distance of their apartments.

The design is based on a hexagon shape that is copied throughout the site. The site plan shows the overall design and layout for the residential buildings and commercial buildings.

WEST LOGAN CITY PARK DESIGN

A

A’

This is designing for a city park in Logan, Utah. I designed all hardscape and sports fields in close proximity to one another. This will allow for more natural land, providing a relaxing, safe, and natural space. Close to the entrance plaza, a Wisteria covered, curved pergola connects the two buildings with an observation deck. On the south side of the building, there is an enclosed, sheltered space with planted lavendar to procide a nice area for picnics. The Quiet Forest space at the southeast corner is situated on an existing weltland. Because this part of the site is lower than the rest, I designed a board walk with a series of decks with seating. Existing trees will make the enclosure a quiet and lovely space.

FIELD STUDIO DESIGN

Plan View Shows the Basic Structure and Layout of the Site

Turf and Ground Cover Garden

The Field Studio is a great way for students, and anyone else who visits, to learn in a hands-on environment. People wil be able to experience and learn outside of a classroom by walking through and observing specific plants and other materials that are sustainable, waterwise, and native. When people realize how attractive this type of landscaping can be they will hopefully mimic it in their own yards and designs. The driving idea for the design of the alternative turf and groundcover garden was to provide students, and othervisitors to the site, an array of examples of plant material that grow well in the Logan Utah area. All of the plants chosen are low water use and drought tolerant, making them great alternatives to the water guzzling traditional turf. Two of the raised planter beds display traditional lawn alternatives. The third is a display of other groundcovers to be used in more small-scale settings where turf wouldn’t be appropriate. The permaculture garden is a great way to change up the traditional landscape with plants that will provide food year after year. The garden design includes fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, berries, and other produce. A succulent garden was desiged to resemble sunrays behind a rolling landscape. Many hardy succulents will grow in our area. Succulents are unique, colorful, low water use plants that can be used in places that are difficult for other plants to grow in.

Forest Street Corridor

Proposed Streetscape

Forest Street is the historic entrance to downtown Brigham City and a critical circulation corridor. The cultural heritage and social value of the street are crucial to defining and maintaining the identity of the city. Forest Street is the city’s showcase during Peach Days, hosting the majority of the festival. In particular, we will focus on the circulation difficulties at the railroad crossing, the lack of visual continuity with downtown, the economic choices that must be made, and the corridor’s aesthetic shortcomings. Forest Street is currently dominated by automobile traffic and panders to the needs of motorists. Though wide sidewalks exist, they are underutilized and do not provider pedestrians with a buffer from vehicular traffic. Crosswalks are not visually prominent and do not offer a high degree of safety for those venturing across multiple lanes of traffic on foot. Cycling lanes are absent and current parking and speed conditions further discourage from using the street.
