Re_home University of Illinois Solar Decathlon 2011 Washington D.C.


1 Solar Decathlon Solar Decathlon Final Competition Washington D.C. Fall 2011 Team Project

As a project manager for Team Illinois, I helped with the construction and interior design of the Re_home. I also coordinated many aspects of the construction, sponsorship of the project, and the 3 week competition in Washington D.C. The Re_home won first place in energy balance and appliances and is now located at the University of Illinois, south of campus. 6

Smart Shading: Integrated solar shade canopies provide seasonal shading, reducing heat gain during the warm summer and allowing heat gains during cold winter months.

Creating a new, high performance, prototype to Re_build communities following natural disasters. Following the devastation of a community, it is important to rebuild stronger and smarter. The Re_home accomplishes both goals through careful planning and execution. A super insulated, double-layered envelope minimizes thermal transfer between the interior and exterior, drastically reducing the energy needs of the home. Glazing on the home is kept to a minimum, and when used is carefully placed and strategically shaded to control solar gains and maximize daylighting. The house is also built stronger to be prepared for the next disaster. Spray foam insulation on the interior of the home stiffens the structure and increased structural support in the roof and walls prepares the house to handle high loads brought on by both summer and winter disasters.

Super Insulated R45 Envelope: -Exterior insulation panels provide extra insulation and a double layer installation greatly decreases thermal bridging. -3.5 inches of interior spray foam insulation provide an airtight and highly insulated inner wall. -24� o.c wall construction reduces the thermal bridging of structural members and utilizes less construction material.

White EPDM Roof: A white roof decreases the heat absorbance of the building, reducing ambient temperatures and increasing solar power production.

R60+ Roof: Spray foam insulation between 9.5 and 15 inches creates a super insulated and air-tight roof.

Benefits of M

High Performance Glazing: Triple-pane, Low-E coated, argon filled windows greatly reduce heat transmission through house glazing and improving energy efficiency. Strategic placement of windows, mainly on the north and south facade, minimize harsh east and west solar heat gains.

Through the u able to utilize fa efficiency to min a home that is cost effective.

The high level envelope enab energy savings

R60 Floor: 9.5 inches of spray foam insulation create a highly insulated floor, important when placed on above ground foundation

IIT

The New Metropolis Spring 2012 Design Studio Professor Paul Armstrong Team Project: Natalya Falk, Gavin Sharp Chicago Prize Nominee Ryerson Traveling Award Recipient The New Metropolis development is vibrant, attractive, considerate, and well positioned for future growth and change. This design draws in the surrounding neighborhood through park spaces and diverse program within the site including retail, public, institutional, residential, hotel, and office. The transit hub is a major node for Chicago, providing connections to Lake Michigan, the Metra, CTA, bike paths, and the in-site tram system. With so many transit options, The New Metropolis is a completely car-free zone. Green space throughout the site provides open areas to relax and let in light within the dense, urban fabric.

3 Children’s Art Museum

Children’s Art Museum Fall 2012 Design Studio Professor Robert Mooney This art museum is located in Crystal Lake Park in Urbana, IL in a densely forrested and active park. The museum design opens up to an existing oak tree which is the focal point of the park from the museum and a source of inspiration for children. Children visit this museum to both create pieces of art and to experience art in exhibits.

4 Boutique Hotel

The Rendezvous Fall 2009 Design Studio Professor Lynne Dearborn Chicago, IL Earl Prize Nominee

This boutique hotel in Uptown, Chicago is designed using methods of repetition to create a sense of flow and unity throughout the hotel, on the exterior and interior. This site is on a busy street and a block from the beach and from Lake Michigan. Each space is connected to surrounding areas through the use of transparency, vertical shafts, and green space. Overall, the experience is urban but calm and peaceful through the use of natural materials.

CHICAGO LOOP

Lakefront Vistas is an extension of Daniel Burnham’s vision of the lakefront to be “forever open, clear and free” along the border between Chicago and Evanston. Lakefront Vistas entices visitors to experience the beauty of nature and Lake Michigan through the anticipation and realization of specific views and places. This is accomplished throughout the half-mile long site with an existing apartment renovation, restaurant, kayak center, and several recreational areas.

6 Urban Theater

Urban Patchwork Fall 2008 Design Studio Team Project: Andrew Organ Professor Jean-Brice Viaud Paris, France

This project was to design a small theater in Paris. This design also serves a public function, with a park space in the corner of the site and a cafe, with a thin layer of water on the roof. The building is intriguing to people walking by, who look down through the windows to see people walking below in the foyer. This design is sleek and low, with different plaza spaces at the ground, upper, and lower levels.

7 Work Experience

BIM Modeling I used Revit to model a data center (above) and the Baha’i Welcome Center (below) from construction documents. The scope included architectural and structural modeling, accurate to within fractions of an inch for clash detection.

7 Work Experience

Energy Analysis I built this model of St. Irene Church in Warrenville, Illinois in Revit from old blueprints for Harding Partners in July 2010. Green Building Studio software was used to produce an energy analysis of this existing structure.

7 Work Experience

Drawings & Details These drawings were work I did for Edward Windhorst James Gorksi Architects. Using AutoCad, I drew several plans, perspectives and details for a new edition of the book, Mies van der Rohe: a Critical Biography.
