JUDSON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF EDUCATION BUILDING The site for this project was an existing parking lot in front of Lindner Tower on Judson Universityâ€™s main campus in Elgin, IL. The three main drivers of this project were diversity, connectivity, and thrivability. The thrivability aspect of the project was brought about using the Living Building Challenge
DIVERSITY Having breakout spaces outside classrooms and offices help to create a diverse learning environment, because everyone learns differently.
CONNECTIVITY Adding a connection to the rest of the main campus using a new southern entrance and a direct path from Lindner Tower to the new School of Ed building help to connect the rest of campus with the new building and the existing Lindner Tower.

ENERGY Photovoltaics placed on the roofs facing south and on lower portion of the preexisting Lindner tower along with wind turbines place behind the buildings would help with energy production and cost.
WATER The roof of the building slopes in towards the courtyard, collecting underground. Water from the rest of the site flows down the sloping terrain into a reservoir at the south end of the site.
HEALTH The courtyard areas outside the building and the main courtyard within the building help to create outdoor spaces without the noise pollution from Route 31 to the west and River Road to the south and east.
Photovoltaics Wind Turbines
ROOF SYSTEM -Roof sheeting -8” Thick rigid insulation w/ water & air barrier -Vapor barrier -Wood decking -24” Deep glulam beams
WALL SYSTEM -Horizontal wood louvers, 2”X6” every 18” -Wood cladding -4” Thick rigid insulation w/ water & air barrier
-Vapor barrier -10” Thick precast concrete panel
The horizontal louvers on the south facade keep out summer sun, reducing heat gain, while still allowing a space to be day-lit. It also lets in the winter sun, heating up the building. The east facade has vertical louvers. The north side also has horizontal louvers, though they are mostly ineffective for sun shading on the north, it helps to unify the building aesthetically.
-Topping slab -12â€? Precast concrete

DISASTER SHELTER COMPETITION SPRING 2012
This Disaster Shelter Competition was hosted at John Brown University in Arkansas with World Visi worked to design and build at full scale a shelter for areas post-disaster. It needed to be lightweight, sembled, be able to last for about a year, have a cost (or worth, for donated materials) of less than $15 assembled in under an hour. The shelter was put to the test at John Brown University with a shake ta quakes, sandbags to simulate snow loads, and fans to simulate wind loads up to 60mph. They were a by having students spend the night in them. The panels were made with rigid insulation sandwiched tic. Each member of the team had a specific role, mine was research, and helping to originally assem
ion. A team of 12 of us compact when disas500, and its pieces be able to simulate earthalso tested for livability, d with corrugated plasmble the panels.
The shelter is set on the shake table, while the roof is being tested with sandbags.
The industrial fan, also known a loads to upwar
as “the wolf ” is used to test wind rds of 60mph.

MORPHOLOGY PROJECT Brooklyn, NY
Figure | Ground
Although there was minimal change to the footprint of the buildings between 1904 and 1918, there was a large change between 1918 and 2012. Though 2012 may seem less dense, it can be attributed to the extension of roadways and the ability to build taller buildings to house residents in the area.
Residential and Commercial
The commercial in 1904 and 1918 appear to have been mostly made up of many small shops. In 2012, the commercial is made up of a small number of larger stores. There are also far fewer single residentail houses in 2012 than in 1904 and 1918, but also far more apartment buildings. Residential and commercial remain mixed together in all three dates.
An analysis of changes in cities, including buildings types and streets of several blocks in Brooklyn in the years 1904, 1918, and 2012 using Sanborn maps and Google Earth for reference.
Parking and Stables
The development of automobiles led to the appearence of parking lots and the decrease of stables between 1904 and 1918. The enormous increase of parking between 1918 and 2012 is most likely due to the increasing dependancy of cars as a main source of transportation as opposed to walking or public transportation.
Between 1904 and 1918 there was a significant increase in the amount of factories in this area, especially considering the small time span, most likely due to industrialization. However, in 2012, all the factories have either been demolished or left as vacant buildings. The vacant buildings have changed on every map.
