01 GROWING HABITAT Dallas, TX, Team Work with Ceren Tomruk Personal contribution: 90% concept, 90% design, 90% rendering Advisor: Jason Sowell 2016 Spring

Project Narrative: Habitat is place that is natural for the life and growth of an organism. "Growing Habitat" has double meaning, first, the habitat is growing all the time, because the native plants and green infrastructure come together to generate such a habitat in the urban surrounding, all those organisms grow with seasons, with years. the second meaning of this phrase is that, it’s a habitat for grow, both for kids and birds. Habitat is an ecological term, we divide habitat into two parts, the ecology habitat, in terms of birds, and the learning habitat, in terms of kids, parents and other users.

02 TERRACING TIME Austin, TX, Team Work with Neive Tierney, Nic Odekon and Rachel Warborton Personal contribution: 50% concept, 60% design, 80% rendering Advisor: Allan Shear 2015 Fall

Project Narrative: Waller creek is the only creek inside UT campus which is located in the downtown area of Austin. Our team find "flow" and "pool" can be two strong points to guide our whole design concept, we divide the "flow" into three kinds: water, vihecle and people; "pool" also has two meanings, water pooling area and outdoor space for people gathering. We find both flow and pool has something to do with time and speed, then, come to our version, "Terracing time". Based on the metaphorr, we rephrase three given objectives, enhance the environment to "slow the momentum", expand access to "split currents" and engage the creek to "scuplt for speeds", where we further divide the space for three kinds based on the speed of people they may serve for.

03 SAVE THE BAY Houston, TX, Individual Work Advisor: Hope Hasbrouck 2015 Spring

Project Narrative:

A community based organization has decided to develop an 'Explore the Bay Center' in Houston Texas, overlooking Burnet Bay. The mission of 'Save the Bay' is to improve the ecological health of Burnet Bay. The proposal involves the development of an education center for the youth, besides, 50000 cubic yards dredge material will be transported to the site on barges, unloaded, and distributed on the site. Three levels of program and landscape was proposed here: overlooking, in plants and on the water, those experience inspired young generation to love the bay and save the bay.

04 CHANGE THE SHORELINE Burns Harbor, IN, Internship Work Cooperate with civil engineers Personal contribution: 20% concept, 30% design, 60% rendering 2016 Summer

Project Narrative: The south shore of Lake Michigan is a patchwork of industrial working waterfronts, transportation corridors, waterways, recreational sites and trails, urban development, neighborhoods, and interstitial remnant native dune landscapes and wetlands. All of these landscape typologies reside within a dynamic littoral zone whose waves and currents constantly sculpt the lake’s shoreline. These solutions – examined herein – propose a combination of engineered breakwaters and living shoreline strategies to encourage a different shoreline response to wave action. Taking cues from naturally occurring headland-bay beaches, these strategies facilitate stable beach forms capable of persisting in the absence of sediment nourishment efforts.

05 WILD MOMENT Denali National Park, AK, Team Work with Kamree Daniell Gonzales (Architecture student) Personal contribution: 80% analysis, 60% design, 90% rendering Advisor: Hope Hasbrouck and David Heymann 2016 Fall

Project Narrative: If people get lost in current society where domestication dominates, how could individuals to redefine themselves and communities in a wildness that are untrammeled by other people? How can a built environment amplify the interaction between people and wildness without compromising the ability of future generations to experience the wildness? We proposed a pilgrimage to guide people to experience the wildness. The whole pilgrimage will take 6 days in total, roughly 60 miles hiking, five typical wild landscape as the environment for the five selected sites to demonstrate how the one simple element from the wild can be taken and amplified to exaggerate the feeling of wildness.
