My name is Chelsea Millan, LEED Green Associate, and I am a recent graduate from the Masters of Architecture program at the University of Oregon. I received my undergraduate degree in interior design from Baylor University in May of 2016. My passion for serving others through design is inspired by variety of travel experiences and the desire to create spaces that promote sustainability while assessing the functional needs of its users. I believe good design goes beyond an aesthetic and tells a story about its users, community, and creators. I have a strong interest in how design and architecture can be applied to improve social, environmental, and economic conditions within the context of communities. I hope to pursue a career that will enable me to use my problem-solving skills, creative thinking, and dedication to serving others to impact lives and shape the way people view the world around them.

STITCHED FUTURES

urban design framework of portland expo center site | portland, oregon | 2019 Collaboration with Solaja Ratcliffe. The Expo Site is located in northern Portland, along the Columbia River- a site historically associated with industrial use for the Vanport area. As it sits currently, this riverfront site is primarily industrial with adjacencies to abundant wetlands and natural vegetation along the southern edge, and the river on the northern edge. One of the primary goals of this project was to explore methods in which the wetlands, the urban realm, and the river could be restitched together. By establishing principles, including access to resources, diversity in spaces, community oriented design, and engaging the natural environment, this framework seeks to create a template of social, regional, and environmental resilience.

urban growth shed urban agriculture center | portland, oregon | 2019

The Urban Growth Shed in Portland, Oregon asks the question of whether an agriculture system, located within an urban context, can serve as system that supports human health, social equity, and ecological infrastructure. With food insecurity a commonality within many regions of the world today, the need for a place that both produces and educates on the subject of agricultural production is at a high. The goal is to create a closed loop, productive landscape within an urban framework that contributes to resilient food systems and education. The building itself will be a demonstration of sustainable processes related to building performance and its relationship to the environment. Its positioning on at the edge of an urban green corridor and public street network allows for high levels of engagement with outdoor growing and public space. A high degree of fluidity exists between spaces for learning, research, gathering, and growing.

A FRAME HAUS

building application of structural mass plywood | 2018 A Frame Haus is a reimagined a frame contructed of 3 inch mass panel plywood (MPP) as opposed to traditional stick frame lumber. The 240 square foot dwelling unit is easily assembled and can be transported to any site of the owner’s choosing. A frame haus takes advantage of narrow angles by creating a variety of storage opportunities as well as seating. Curtain walls as well as an outdoor balcony expand views to the outdoor surroundings, allowing occupant connection to the exterior environment.

urban parklet public interest design build | waco, texas | 2014 | *first place collaboration, ASID student symposium Collaboration with Baylor Interior Design c/o 2016. The Urban Parklet is a design build project located in downtown Waco. Students conducted research by studying site and behavioral patterns in order to create a concept. The final design concept promotes Waco’s increasing incorporation of street art, and social interaction among its users. Materials consist of reclaimed wood pallets, wire gabions, and rocks. My contribution included behavioral observation and analysis of pedestrians, participation in construction of the model, deconstruction of wood pallets to form seats, design and assembly of parquet patterned seat backs, and participation in final assembly.

birchwood lantern luminaire installation | eugene, oregon | 2017 | *1st place gallery award, university of oregon Collaboration with Jessica Glaeser and Leah Loostrom. The competiton winning Birchwood Lantern is an ambient fixture intended to provide luminance where specific needs may be required. Its geometric frame, crafted of birchwood, is interlaced with fine, white string to soften the immediate glow of the lamp. A secondary diffusion layer made of mylar evens the immediate distribution of light from the lamp source. Natural materials create a minimalist profile, remnicient of traditional Scandinavian Design. My contribution included initial design of the luminaire, threading of string, and assisting with photometric calculations.
