INFILTRATING THE CITY
CAROLYN LIEBERMAN + SAMUEL RIDGE + CODY TUCKER WINTER 2014 | BROOK MULLER | PORTLAND, OREGON, USA
The harmony of nature in an urban environment is not about organic systems reappropriating urban space as nature, but rather a reinvented system that uses urban typologies as catalysts that benefit all species. The parking garage is an urban typology commonly thought of as temporary storage for automobiles. The type is a signifcant revenue generator while almost always having high environmental impacts. These impacts are appropriated through the act of driving to the garage, the heavy metals that exist on the car, the materials that cause runoff, and the massive amounts of stagnant space. It is easy to think of the parking garage as a host to one of the most environmentally ine cient creations, and the solution to its being an eradication of the type. However, the parking garage is a prominent and prosperous type in the city, and will continue to exist in the future. SMITH & BYBEE WETLAND
This proposes the question: How can the parking garage change to become a more sustainable resource for the city? In this project we will be looking at the parking garage as a catalyst to connect the Smith and Bybee Wetlands to the Ross Island Wetlands in Portland, Oregon. Focusing on the area of west and southwest Portland, with a speci c site at the new Zidell Yards development, we will attempt to answer the question proposed above. After intensive thought and iterations we began to see the problem as this diagram below shows. CONDENSE As our urban areas densify this new urban type must maintain the ability to condense its ability to treat water to smaller sites
SMITH & BYBEE WETLAND
ROSS ISLAND FT
CONTAIN The parking garage will contain water along with its required program of car containment. The water will be gathered from neighboring spaces and its own footprint. CONNECT Use the parking garage as a catalyst for urban development to respond to wildlife corridors in downtonw Portland, ultimately connecting the Ross Island Wetlands to the Smith and Bybee Wetlands. CLEANSE The water contained will be treated on site and off site, through analog and mechanical processes. After which the water will flow into neighboring habitats.
URBAN KIT OF PARTS As a new parking garage type is inducted into the city the components of an urban area must be assessed to understand the spatial arrangements of the different components.

Continuation of the structural system onto the roof. Creates garden space and pathways
Allows for the collection of water and provides habitat for macroinvertabrates. PARKING Precast concrete structure. Single helix 2 way car circulation; 330 cars total
VORONOI STRUCTURAL SYSTEM The cells are created from a series of randomly generated points that emit a radius within an area. Each cell contains all points that are equidistant from the node. This particular system is made of 4" tube steel ranging in size from 1' to 20'
Every 2 floors the filtration beds occupy the horizontal voronoi cells interacting with the vertical circulation.
Openings are in a direct relationship with the voronoi structural system.
The screen attaches onto the shell, creating a more aesthetically pleasing interior and exterior experience.
The water is passively fltered using landscaped beds
Shapes are created by offsetting and filleting the voronoi cells. Panelized steel system.

Creates a interactive pattern which surrounds the cisterns This pattern incorporates a density gradient to describe the changing water quality in the cisterns CISTERNS
The cisterns contain and cleanse the water collected from the roof, the bridge, the roads and the site. Using mechanical and analog systems the water becomes cleaner as it moves from the outer edges towards the center of the building. Once the water is classi ed as greywater it is released into the nearby landscape and plaza.

DATA CENTER FOR THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FALL 2013 | JOLIE KERNS | PRINEVILLE, OREGON, USA
Humans have a continuing curiosity in the act recording information: especially that of agricultural, astronomical, and meteorological relevance. Historically, we have published physical publications of data--but as we have moved into the digital age we have moved to real-time, Digital platforms as a means of recording and accessing information. What exactly is data? Strictly defined, it is "an abstract concept that can be viewed as the lowest level of abstraction from which information and then knowledge is derived". Given the abstraction of data, and our growing dependence on a more abstract form of accessing that data, we are losing a physical sense of what it means to interact with and interpret information. How can we re-visualize and experience the human element that categorizes and defines data? Built in a campus-like fashion, the procession begins with an ascent between the two data storage units, and leads to the entrance of the visitors' center. Spanned by an open plaza space, a facility for research in hydrology and geology exists on the north end, hoping to make accessible the information of the natural world to progress towards ecological Consciousness and render the need for this data center useless.

BRANCH LIBRARY WINTER 2012 | HALIT BEYAZTAS | EUGENE, OREGON, USA
Located in the heart of the Whitaker district, Skinners Butte Park exudes the air of nature and a connection to family. On the edge of University territory, residents take ownership of this up kept public space. Much like the way Spencer's Butte provides a backdrop to the support the city of Eugene, the branch library takes on the same attributes to support the daily activities of the Whitaker district. The green roof aligns with the slope and allows visitors to walk atop the library. Once entering, the library is split into two axis: the communal and individual spaces. The interior reading space takes advantage of the northern light via the large windows. The space is also sunken down so that the floor of the interior meets the ground of the exterior, separated by the glass panels. The large columns in the interior reference the contextual material, basalt. The library is not to be built upon the land, but it come up from it.
ACOUSTICALLY RESPONSIVE INSTALLATION + FURNITURE SPRING 2012 | EUGENE, OREGON, USA
In an effort to solve a never-ending issue of not having a private place to take a phone call, the Digital Media Collaborative worked towards creating a space to solve that problem. We call it the parametrically-designed, acoustically responsive phone booth. The ribbed structure was formed with the contours of the human form to create the most comfortable seating possible. The external paneled skin performs to respond to the interior ribs, shield external sounds, and to perform as a surface for the embedded LED lights to bounce on. The lights are responsive to the human voice as to show those passing that a phone call is in session.
