PHILOSOPHY


Design lies beyond the image. I believe in an architecture that concentrates on the evocation of the senses. I believe in details that are subtle and embody the essence of the design. Good design lies in the nuances. It lies in the careful manipulation and articulation of materials and their joinery. My passion is for the details, the study of materials, and the anticipation of potential problems that become solutions. I believe in the craftsman that is the architect.

SHIGERU BAN ARCHITECTS RUS SIAN SPA

Despite it’s small size, this private spa faced many of the the struggles of large scale projects. This is because of the attention paid to it’s performance as a spa, it’s demanding enviroment of Russia, and the intent to create a masterfully crafted and highly customized retreat. The intent is also to have it be quickly constructed within 6 months. My roles on this project were always varied from scheduling, speaking with consultants, and researching products and new ways of construction. I also designed details, furniture, a customized sink and chose finishes. Through this project, I learned how to do all of the above and how to work efficently with a lot of responsibility on a small team of a highly technical and customized project. Communication, organization, and research became important traits that were necessary to learn.

This detail for the external facade of the massage room aims to resolve problems of condensation, temperature, and supply air while also behaving as a Japanese shoji screen. The initial design concept was to allow the user to choose whether to open the view to the surrounding landscape. The user would create a view near the floor as the massage happens while lying down. Issues of transparencies and light were also in discussion

FURNITURE DESIGN

Decorative nook with mirror for user to view when laying down


The concept of the massage room furniture was to create compartments whose size and location related to the function housed. The act of of using the furniture is one of discovery as the appearance aims to be minimal, hiding the mess of all the supplies needed. Yet each comparment relates to the plot of massage, and each location is based on separating clean and dirty and user and masseuse.

SHIGERU BAN ARCHITECTS CITé MUSICALE

The 170 million Euro music hall, Cité Musicale, was being constructed and in need of large scale prototyping studies. I was asked to lead the design and construction of a large 1:10 model of the facade to study the impacts of lighting schemes. The main concept of the building is of a wooden egg structure, protecting an iridescent mass at the center. This mass is finished with iridescent mosaic tiles. On the very exterior is a “sail” of PV panels, which tracks the sun as it revolves around half of the building.

MODEL CONSTRUCTION The 1:10 model of the facade was flattened for simplicity. It was made to be easily assembled and transported. The mosiac wall was wired to show the interior lighting in the corridor. The wood truss was made hollow to also be easily wired. The truss was constructed with pipes and 3D printed joints and connectors. PV panels were very throughly studied to get the correct transparency and reflection . My role was to design, 3D model, and final construct the final model.

GASTINGER WA L K E R& UNIVERSITY BUSINESS SCHOOL

A user centric design, and to become a symbol on the campus while breaking the traditional forms of the neighboring collegiate buildings. This project had a very small and firm budget. I was involved during the construction documents phase where I was put in charge of the quality control of the drawings. I also modeled aspects of the building in Revit, like a complicated roof and an undulating and modular facade. Specific problems I worked on were the ceiling, the facade panels, the curtain walls, and site planning. I also was able to witness construction on site numerous times.

PHENOMENOLOGICAL TIMBER It is the endless juxtaposition of old and new that makes cities thrive in intrigue. It is this same juxtaposition that engulfs the fundamental design of this building. The craft of luthiery and music is rooted in the beginning of time. It's value never waivers, yet still adapts to the cultural journey through time. This ancient craft is similar to the craft and value of wood in our everyday lives. It's presence continually adapts. This relationship of wood, luthiery and time is personified in the design.


SPECIALITY RETAIL & HOUSING / SENIOR YEAR / SOLO PROJECT / 3 MONTHS


The tactile characteristics of wood surround the user in an experience bringing them back to the ancient use of both timber construction and the craft of music. The visitors to the retail shop are enveloped in a carved room of wood, and able to watch the luthiers at work. A void carves the space to create an outdoor performance garden activating a pedestrianized alleyway. Light filters through insulated channel glass into the retail space and into a second void, filtering through the housing units. This void becomes a method for stack ventilation with operable openings in access to residents. 34

This building is the story of time. It is the story of craftsman, wood, and music. It will stand the test of time, responding to age and the elements, just as wood and music proven to.

West void raised to increase availability of daylighting. The impermeable CLT construction is an advantage to reach passive house standards that are sought. Stack ventilation is used through a central void with operable windows throughout. Rainwater is collected on roof & in the void and transported to underground cistern

R E TAIL SPAC E The act of buying a guitar or violin is not just an errand. It is a musicians rite . This space emphasizes the craftsmanship of the objects . It is a gallery space, not a store. Light is used in contrast and congruence with the nature of wood., along with it's manipulation. Wood is essential to music, just like it is to the experience of the space.

43


44

Secondary performance under the illumination of the top void


Residences profit from the light and stack ventilation from void 65% have views to outdoors 62% is within 15' of an operable window 75% of GSF can be daylit (only) during occupied hours 45

WHY WOOD? LOW EMBODIED ENERGY

Lower overall energy use, greenhouse gases released, solid waste and air pollution released than steel or concrete CARBON SINK

Wood that decays releases 4 times more tons of CO2 than wood that is preserved in functional ways. The amount of wood used in a typical timber frame building, if decomposed, would release the same amount of CO2 as 2,400 gallons of gasoline 50-100% of emissions that result from steel or concrete buildings saved by timber construction R ENE WAB LE RECYCLED & REUSABLE SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION

The inherent emphasis of timber throughout the building is expressed also on the exterior. The translucency of the void is a motif through the rest of the building. Transparencies are varied, and with different materials.

secure within this courthouse. Instead of the by their separation of the courtroom, which is the traditional layout of the courthouse, the secure and restricted areas are exposed behind a veil of translucency. The public areas physically reach through in plan to break the barrier of security, leaving the courtroom disconnected in space and the public able to perceive a blurred reality of the system that supports the law and the ones that break it. One is unable to fully understand the environment they exist within; only able to focus on portions, or understand a blurry version of the whole. The accumulation of particles create solid forms, which both obscure our view and reveal what we see. Perceptions are fogged. The edge is unforeseen until the buzz dies abruptly. It is inevitable that the particles are never seen the same way; yet they are identifiable by this very quality. Existing patterns are distorted, new patterns emerge, the definitive fades in and out of distinction.


COURTHOUSE / SENIOR YEAR / PARTNER PROJECT / 3 MONTHS


The law is imperfect. It acts as a symbol of authority, yet falls privy to the bias and flawed nature of the populace who controls it and those who it controls. The courthouse is an accumulation of the forces behind and below the law. This accumulation concentrates at the pinnacle node of the law: the courtroom. The courtroom is the object in a field of obscured perceptions.

Initial concept massing model; understanding negative space around masses of the secure program and courtrooms

PROGR AMMATIC GR ADIENT

The program of a courthouse is split into three circulation categories: secure, restricted, and public. Because of this unique aspect specific to courthouse design, program was thought of as the intermingling and blending of these three programs into a gradient of security. This gradient was exposed as conspicuously as possible through the finishing and solidity of the walls. The secure was to be felt as most solid, while the public would be most transparent. The courtroom would remain independent as a solid mass, though meant for the public, would read completely differently than the rest of the design of the building.

Most transitions between public and secure are shrouded behind veils of translucency, or behind brief solidity. The courtroom is the sole exception. Suspended amid veils, the solid mass hovers. It awaits the apex action of the law: the staged systematic procedure. It encompasses the pinnacle purpose of the courthouse and is thus treated independently from its programmatic context. In lieu of translucency is impenetrable solidity. The transition at the public’s boundary is not one of visual blurring. Instead, it is a stark contrast of dark and light, impending enclosure and airy transcendence. The public and secure coalesce after the journey of obscurity into a space that exposes one to the other in impending finality.


62

Where the courtrooms become completely isolated from other program, the exterior glazing is permitted to pull back to the end of the functional program. This creates a carving effect, allowing the courtroom masses to be exposed on the exterior more clearly in some areas, while still veiling other areas of the mass. This erratic obscurity of visual perception is congruent to one’s understanding of the law and the actions taking place within the courthouse.


63


The traditional concept and layout of courthouses is broken in this design concept. Public and restricted are not separated by the courtroom. This is manifested in the horizontal light wells that separate the courtroom masses from the vertical circulation. Not only does this action allow light to penetrate through the building, it disconnects the courtroom from the rest of the program, highlighting it’s objectivity. At the area of the prisoner’s passage to the courtroom , they are exposed in a blurry veil behind frosted glass. The public visually connects the prisoner’s passage to the theatrics of the law, though they remain constrained to the confines of their inability to completely see or understand what is happening.

FAÇADE The courthouse is visceral in nature, its edge blurred, non-existent. Density near the courtroom gives way to openness near the perimeter; the exterior layer must scarcely circumscribe the built form from the external. Understanding

the

relationship

of

the

courtroom

masses in space is guided though the articulation of the exterior façade. The front creates a constantly changing understanding of the courtroom forms. The individual passersby’s understanding of the building changes based 68

on their proximity and position near the building.

EARTHEN PAV IL I O N As the Kansas sun beams across the plains, ecologists collaborate, exposed to the heat. It is a humble landscape, dappled in subtle beauty. A pavilion built in honor of the environment, and the people who preserve it, should relish the land and reveals it’s intricacies. This pavilion is functional, but more than that, it filters light and illustrates sun patterns. It extricates the earth and exposes it’s unknown capacity for simultaneously smooth and rough tactility. It pays homage to the rolling landscape and the windblown prairie. It is Kansas.


PAVILION / JUNIOR / GROUP PROJECT / 4 MONTHS / $3,000 BUDGET AWARD: ARCHITECTURE NEWSPAPER BEST OF DESIGN & AIA KANSAS


On this skewed site, rammed earth walls point north. The walls are robust and grounded, yet rise from the sea of prairie. The canopy adheres to the human made boundary condition of the existing building. It’s underside is carved in accordance to the dancing of the prairie. It’s function is to shade and the sun pattern is manifested in the shadows. It creates a space for meeting, presenting, and relaxation while overlooking the expanse of Kansas.

CONSTRUCTION 1. Accumulating dirt after testing optimum mixture of water, earth and fly ash 2. Build plywood and reclaimed wood formwork over concrete foundations. Ram earth, fly ash, pigment and water with pneumatic tamper 3. Reclaimed wood louvers cut and organized with welded steel straps 4. Canopy constructed and screwed into beams with galvanized steel straps. Cantilevered louvers stabilized with cable and turnbolts. Threaded rod added at end of cantilevered louvers to resist windload. ends of cantilevered louvers

Our desire was to create a canopy that mimics the swaying of the prairie. Louvers were carved underneath and notched at varying depths to create the effect underneath the canopy and in elevation.

REFLECTION Reflecting

on

this

95

project

conjures

extreme pride. Not only was I one of the lead designers, but also helped lead construction, especially steel fabrication. The process was difficult as it required reconciling a multitude of design opinions, pleasing the client, and remaining under out $3,000 budget and 4 month timeline.


RAMMED EARTH RESEARCH This research is a materiality study of a vernacular type of construction used for centuries called rammed earth, where soil is compressed to form a structurally strong, insulating and fundamentally beautiful building elements. This specific research will study how linseed oil and cow’s blood stabilize and strengthen a Kansas silty loam soil. Rammed

earth

is

a

solution

for

sustainable

construction for it’s low embodied energy, low toxicity, recyclability, renewability, and compressive strength. This specific research expands developing 96

knowledge on sustainable stabilization to improve the compressive strength and moisture resistance of earth. A series of tests to find the optimum moisture content and to classify the soil preluded the process of ramming. Then cylinders were crushed to calculate the strength, and washed with water to find the moisture resistance.

This individual research won an Undergraduate Research Award, a grant from KU’s Honors school, and I was asked to speak about it at a national confrence
