WORKS

This semesters studio project is located in Historic Downtown Bryan, Tx. We are focusing on the rehabilitation of the historic buildings, as well as proposing a new urban design and accompanying buildings. A main focus of the project is taking back the street, pedestrians over cars, allocating more space for pedestrian avenues, and providing exterior parking. This semester I am going to use this project to learn/improve my skills with Revit 2017, renderings, and Photoshop 2018.

Craig Babe: This project is located in Toronto, Canada. The main focus was to create a mixed-used development that provided

housing and had a commercial aspect on the lower level. I choose to create a restaurant and architecture firm as my commercial programs. The ground level main street side houses the restaurant as well as a commercial lobby for the firm. The back side of the development houses townhomes and a residential lobby on the ground floor before switching into the units which are compact in design. Each unit has floor to ceiling glazing in order to provide natural light.

Craig Babe & Ahmed Ali: This project focused on creating an annex for the College of Architecture to house a new library, more studio

spaces, and a public function on the existing Architecture Quad. I choose to connect to the existing Architecture building underground and provide a public cafĂŠ/study space on the ground level in order to preserve as much green space of the quad as possible.

Dr. Phillip Tabb: This project focused on design a House with the smallest possible footprint, as few doors and walls as possible. My

solution to decrease the footprint of my house was to expand the design vertically. This projects location in Serenbe, Georgia provided an interesting challenge of working on a fairly steep slope.

Dr. Phillip Tabb: This project focused on the design of Live-Work units with a commercial function in the Mado Hamlet of Serenbe, Georgia. The functions of the commercial spaces were assigned from a list of needed programs for the are, mine being Art Therapy. This project dealt with uneven topography, the need to incorporate PV into the design of our buildings, collaborating with neighboring designs for a seamless street scape, and distinguish private entrances to the housing portion.

Anne Nichols:

This was a team project for our Structures course. Our team “Truss us It’s Safe” was made up of myself, Jenny Stallones, Brooke Hendrix, and Robert Reyes. Our team created a cardboard couch using single corrugation card board that would hold our two set loads or classmates without failing. Our design won the “Top Notch” award for best performance, detailed documentation, and use of Multi-frame. This project was a lot of fun, and a great exercise in problem solving, as well as real world application of course knowledge.

The Final project Fall 2016 was to pick a social issue and address it with Architecture. I choose to address the issue of parking and deserted spaces in Downtown Houston. I choose to create a building that connected sub-ground parking with a Cultural Center & Green space to activate the downtown area and encourage people to spend more time after work and on weekends in the downtown area. This project also touched on the idea of reclaiming the street for pedestrian use by closing down a street between two Houston city Blocks.
