SILVER RIVER GARDEN DESIGN

PRELIMINARY DESIGN

Renderings and plan for LA 3325, Professor Qing Lana Luo, Fall 2019 Brief: To design the landscaping for a home in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I was inspired by the slope of the site to create a rainwater catchment basin with water-filtering rushes and lotus to create a swim pond. The dry stream bed through the perennial meadow follows the grade and meanders into the pond. A large vegetable garden and berry patch soaks up the sunniest aspect, and a live oak at the high point of the site is the metaphorical world tree providing shade and shelter.

PACIFIC NORTHWEST COLLEGE OF ART ROOFTOP GALLERY

Model and renderings created for University of Oregon Summer Architecture Academy, Professor James Givens, Summer 2016 Brief: To create an event structure for the Pacific Northwest College of Art rooftop garden. The dark steel structure was inspired by 19th century greenhouses and the PNCA renovation interior structure. Extensive tinted glazing diffuses northern light and continues the garden’s aquatic story with a mottled, tinted roof suggestive of water. The open interior space is designed for gallery displays.

Model and graphics for LA 3325, Professor Qing Lana Luo, Fall 2019 Brief: To create 18”x18” abstract space that told a story expressing three adjectives: graceful, strong, and emergent. I reimagined these qualities as elements in the ballet Giselle and created a model and set of graphic storyboards to tell the story.
