01 THE PHILADELPHIA ROWHOME Multi-generational Living Fall 2018 | Ten Weeks | Rachel Schade The rowhome has become a staple of Philadelphian architecture dating back to its founding. Its successful design was attributed to how simple they were to build, their compact footprint, and how they allowed families to have their own personal space in the city. With increased urbanism, immigration, and rising expenses, the rowhome has brought the possibilities of multi-generational living into the forefront. In this project, I designed a rowhome that merged the classical portrayal of a rowhome with contemporary issues to create a home that suites the multi-generational family.

02 THE APARTMENT COMPLEX Mantua Mixed-Use Redevelopment Project Winter 2019 | Ten Weeks | Simon Tickell In urban environments, many communities suffer the consequences of negligence causing a diaspora of abandonment. To help aid these communities, designers have come only to further destroy the neighborhood due to gentrification causing a more serious issue to the residents. In the case of Mantua, a neighborhood that has encountered this decline, a master plan was created to help rejuvenate the community by responding to the community’s needs and restore life to the neighborhood. In this project, I designed a mixed-use apartment complex that would not only bring people back but restore the local economy and bring fresh food to the community. In what could be seen as an invasive project, I made sure to respect the urban fabric and design a space that would not diverge from the existing life of the community.

Creating Social Infrastructure in Powelton Spring 2019 | Ten Weeks | Jeremy Voorhees Inspired by the words of Eric Klinenberg in his book “Palaces for the People”, schools play an important role in creating an identity for a neighborhood to which he calls “social infrastructure.” By creating social infrastructure, the qualms of life including inequality, division, and unhappiness could be resolved in a structure that embodies pride, beauty, and growth. In this project, our goal was to transform the current Powel School, a K-5 school into a center for Powelton residents could take advantage of while increasing enrollment to a K-8 school. The original site included the pre-existing Powel School, its blacktop, and a small playground across the street. By creating a seamless and safe transition of spaces, landscape and sustainable design played a crucial role in creating a cohesive site rather than one divided.

Establishing a client: Philly City Rowing Spring 2018 | Ten Weeks | Jacklynn Niemiec

In the rowing community, the Schuylkill River plays an important part of history as the beginning of competitive rowing in America. As a result, rowing has become a popular sport within the city and local communities. While universities and private boat clubs have taken residence along the river’s “Boathouse Row” not all teams are fortunate. Our client, Philadelphia City Rowing was a non-profit middle and high school rowing team that lacked a space where all of their students could gather, store their equipment, and have easy access to the river. The goal of the project was to create a space that not only satisfied their storage needs, but also acted as a space where children could study and bring a community together to support the students.


Iteration #1 Site forces cause a spatial pyramid to form create a more formal street facade and expansive waterside view.

Iteration #2 Shearing forces create pressure to put heavier programmatic elements towards the northside of the site.

Iteration #3 Interlocking forces create a shift the design as the building responds to existing vegetation.



Developing Hierarchies within Space Fall 2017 | Five Weeks | Wolfram Arendt Architecture is a profession centered around designing unique space, places where people can interact, connect, and use for their own means, but in order to understand this, the architect is tasked to design within the boundaries of a cube. This conceptual design problem helps enable the architect to relate a series of horizontals, verticals, solids and voids to help develop what it means to create space. By incorporating a hierarchy of materials and considering ideas of solid and void, spatial sequencing, and grids, an abstracted space was formed.

06 SELECTIONS FROM REPRESENTATION Development of an Architect’s Craft Fall 2017 - Spring 2019 An architect’s representation is a crucial tool to help visualize space and design concepts. By developing a balance between analog, digital, and hybrid forms the architect can better define their ideas to the client in what could not otherwise be described in words. In the field today, while analog techniques have lessened for more efficient and precise digital diagramming and modeling, the feeling of tangibility helps the architect express without the constraints of the program that they are working with. The following works are a selection from a two-year sequence of understanding the various design tools architects use in order to develop a unique creative workflow and sense of identity.

Re-imagining Streets as Pedestrian Spaces Spring 2019 | April 12-15 | Drexel Architecture Over the past century, the use for a street has drastically changed. Before the car, roads were rich in culture and importance to the people who used them. When cars finally came around, they were initially slow moving which meant that people and cars could coexist on the same plane. However, as time went on the car started to dominate the road, forcing people off the street. The main idea for the charrette was to imagine what it would be like to take back the street from cars and restore it to its former glory and use. In conjunction with increasing sustainability in urbanism, people have already started to push the idea of discouraging cars due to their harmful impacts to the environment and society. In the charrette, we were tasked to transform a busy Philadelphian street into a pedestrian gathering space utilizing context and integrating sustainable design.

08 PES REFINERY REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT Creating the “Schuylkill Community of Tomorrow” Spring 2019 | Ten Weeks | Max Zahniser The Philadelphia Oil Refinery has been an important part of the history of Philadelphia for over a century. As the largest oil refinery on the east coast, the refinery attributed to the rise of the automobile and fossil fuel consumption. However, due to the rise of renewables, a presence of climate change, bankruptcy, and public backlash, the Refinery’s time had been waning. In the event that the oil fields were to close, our project was to develop a massive urban master plan on how to remediate the polluted soil and transform the area into a new sustainable community to which we dubbed, the “Schuylkill Community of Tomorrow.” At the time of this project, the explosion at the refinery had yet to happen which caused the refinery to shutter its doors after 153 years.

Landscape Photography, Analog, & Graphic Design As architects and designer, we are always looking for inspiration to move our designs forwards. Often, these inspirations come from our interests and intents. As someone who holds a passion for sustainability, I often to look to the environment as my inspiration. When I am not doing architecture, I like to travel, draw, and paint. The following works show some of my assorted creative passions including photography, drawing, painting, and graphic design.
