Hello, My name is Bri Holden, I am a 5th year Landscape Architecture Student. This portfolio will take you through projects I enjoyed in school, and experiences during my internship at Confluence. Enjoy.
DIGITAL EXPLORATION STUDIO In Newton IA, the Maytag headquarters is vacant, this project is proposing what can be done with the site in the green space, occupancy with the buildings, and a connection with downtown while exploring multiple digital methods to produce final product.

is cut through the green space showing
the connections of each space across the Maytag site and the hill with an unrecognizable ramp enclosed by vegetation.
Section Two is cut through the smart street showing the widened sidewalk and plantings to create distance from the road.
This view is looking out of
the event center into the
green space. Showing the theatre screen facing a hill and open lawn for people to
sit and watch.
This view is looking out from the restaurant patio into the green space. Containing two hills that are connected through prairie grass following the pattern of the trails, a splash pad, curved benches that can be removed, and scattered local metal art sculptures.

ramp showing the sense of ART GALLERY
enclosure, view of the park and art within it.
This view is placed in the center of the courtyard facing East, the extended patio is part of the event center.
This residential design is “The Martin House” by Thomas Church.
With different medias and textures this model is able to be made in a realistic style approach giving the viewer a visual experience of being in the space.

The final master plan gives a look at the programs decided on for the final design.

The site is broken down into five parts, each part contains programs the city wants for a future park. ONE clarifies the school, TWO is where sports will be located, THREE is flex space, FOUR is hiking paths, FIVE is a space for a dog park.
These pictures are exisiting photos of the site, the pictures demonstrate how much of the 70 acres cannot be built on, leaving most of the options to be soft trails.
These pictures are selected to represent some important highlights being brought to the park.
Photo 1, the board walk that crosses the creek near the soccer fields Photo 2 How check damâ€™s will look in the site to reducing erosion Photo 3 The underpass allowing a connection to the elementary school Photo 4 The open lawn giving a flex space for the future
This master plan is for Four Mile Elementary School students to understand what activities can happen in certain areas of the site.
The master plan contains a dog park in the NW corner, sports area in the SE corner open lawn for flex space and play, hiking trails throughout the woods with viewsheds on the ridges, and water basins to control erosion within the woods.
RESIDENTIAL DESIGN This project demonstrates planting plans, hand graphics, and residential design.
Exisiting site photo of the house, the proposed design includes a butterfly garden, prairie, patio for outdoor kitchen and fireplace, pond, and a shade garden shaping around the patio and pond.
