Work Experience

M W A

J.I.A. / D.R. Arch. Worked as an assistant for 2 principal architects that each have over 20 years of experience in the field. Was given experience in drawing details and various other technical drawings also had a voice in design process decisions. Mostly worked on Terminal 3 at the San Francisco Airport over the summer of 2012.

UO - Eugene UO The bulk of my undergraduate career was spent studying in Lawrence Hall at the University of Oregon in Eugene. Through long nights and early mornings, it is here where the fundamentals of spatial layouts and general concepts were taught and is where I really began to understand the language of architecture

Arch.

Revamping past and current project images in order to market the firm better to both clients and general public. Also actively attending various project meetings for clients such as the Portland water bureau and Habitat for Humanity.

PDX

The UO architecture program in Portland is where my creative design turned into a realistic future. By meeting and working with professionals I was able to learn more in a shorter amount of time and finally see my designs become reality.

Habitat: 503 Neighborhoods In The Sky


“Creating a more Vibrant South Waterfront through Community and Connection.”

- Create the “suburban experience” in a high rise city. - Help add diversity to the South Waterfront. - Create Community Spaces for not only the residents but the public as well. - Design a building that meets code and pushes standards further. - Contribute to the South Waterfront Skyline in a cohesive and unique way. - Maintain connection to the riverfront and Ross Island.

The Site: Lot 23 is the perfect location for a cultural activator! It is a space unlike any other, a place to see and to be seen. Located on the knuckle of the current South Waterfront development, this site will be a beacon for cultural gathering and growth.

Site

With its close proximity to the Zidell property, a great opportunity exists for a historical connection, something that the South Waterfront in generally lacks. Reusing old Zidell structures in this plan gives the community a sense of connection (to its past) and personality for the present. Another plus for this site is the unique opportunity offered by its connection to the Willamette River. Due to the Army Corps of Engineers regulations and federal law, building into the river is not allowed. However, with the existing slip already in place, an opportunity exists for the South Waterfront Community to connect with the river in a way it has not previously enjoyed. Placing a high-rise multi-family residential tower and community center on this site, affords great views and waterfront access that will attract families seeking to visit, stay and live.

Structure:

The Roof

The concept behind my roof design is fairly simple. It is a very slightly sloped wooden roof that at the southwest end lifts up. It is constructed out of wood glulam beams and is intentionally made to have heavy yet light pieces that are fully visible and catch the incoming daylight.

The Lift

Located above the Tool Lending Library and workshop is the roof lift. An accent that marks the corner of the site and adds importance to the space below it. It is meant to being in more daylight as well as create a subtle presence in the space.

The Structural System The structural system is made almost entirely out of laminated wood beams. It expresses itself out of thick wood columns to inspire the users of the space. The system is designed to be light yet noticeable and eye-catching yet non-evasive.

The Joists

Are constructed out of 2 X 12 glulam wood members. They are located 24” on center. The joist support the T&G flooring above and are exposed.

The Beams

Are made of 3 X 18 glulam beams. They are located every 24 feet which creates 24.5’ X 24.5’ bays. They hang below the joists and some are shown off on the facade to imply the importance of the structure in the design.

The Columns

Are 1’ X 1’ glulam columns. They are located 25 feet on center. They are the catalyst to the entire wood structure. The joist do not interact with the columns but the beams do. This connection is emphasized in the double height atrium spaces with the absence of joists.
