Step 3 Introduce public programming on main level and roof deck Step 2 Remove 500 cars Step1 Remove brick infill exterior walls

Located in downtown Bremerton, WA, this project is the adaptive reuse of a three story, 500 spot parking garage. The project is designed as two distinct phases. The first phase involves creating the public programming on the main level. The second phase involves building residential towers with a footprint of just 280sf above the existing structure. The residences are elevated to provide views of the surrounding context, connecting people to the city of Bremerton. A small footprint cuts down on demolition and provides the unique opportunity for every resident to have an entire floor plate for their house. Larger porches allow

Cameron Foster

people to enjoy the temperate climate of Bremerton while being covered from the rainfall prevalent in the area. These large porches also connect residences via stairs to their neighbors who live on the level above and below. Programming such as a farmer’s market, public art classes, a wellness center, and a coworking office space integrate much needed resources in a key site in the city. The site sees thousands of people move through it each day on their way south to the ferry that connects Bremerton to Seattle.

HOUSING soldier deploying

soldier returning This project addresses the live-work relationship of the military and how we can provide a constant for military members to help them cope with always changing environments. This constant is provided by way of your standard 8’x10’ shipping container and the consistent movement of it. Much like the way military members are maneuvered around, the container is a companion for the soldier. Much like a platoon of soldiers marching in one, the shipping container wall on site will provide a perspective to the public. A perspective that they may be unaware or naive

of but want to be more cognitive of. A local artist would project a thought provoking piece of art onto the container wall which everyone will see and overtime as certain soldiers return home from their container will be removed from the wall and placed into their unit where it will be used for individual specific purposes of the soldiers. The communal spaces of the site will provide resources for soldiers as well as provide ease of mind for the soldiers who may suffer from common faults such as PTSD.

Nature Gradient Charleston, SC

Clemson University M.Arch II Design Studio IV - F2019 Professor: Liollio


In a world of built environment we have to stop and ask ourselves the question, how do we combat the abuse we are putting on our planet? Climate change is becoming a significant problem and cities around the globe like Charleston are already noticing major effects. As designers we have to prepare for this future and embrace the challenges that rising sea levels, increased storm intensities and rising temperatures are presenting us. Our goal for Nature Gradient is to deliver a resilient design that ab-

Cameron Foster

sorbs these challenges and reacts to them. The designs purpose is to serve as a nature museum on the peninsula and help to solve climatic problems that the region experiences. The building is raised 2’ 6� from the ground in order to have low impact on the ground as well as allow for passive cooling underneath the building and the regular flooding of Charleston to maneuver around and through the site to the surrounding bioswales.

The focus of this studio was to be placed on the relationship of natural laws and orders and how they begin to shape a plan and a building. We considered man made orders in a formal site analysis to benchmark specific site conditions, comprehend the relationship among them and provide a foundation for planning. A Trailhead Station can act as a place of refuge from typical Northwest weather, or simply a rest point for hikers. This design allows an indoor community space with bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, etc. Oriented toward capitalizing views, this space maximizes the hikers

sites. Camping pods lay throughout the site in the event of a large number of hikers occupying at once. The site is unique in that it rests along the Columbia River Gorge on the border of Washington and Oregon. The Bridge of the Gods is a metal grated roadway that has no walking path and is elevated 141 ft above the Columbia River. This design is centralized around interactions between hikers and how they can work together to prepare for the next portion of their journey along the Pacific Crest Trail.

COMMUNITY BUILD

In Studio V, we focus on the relationship between design and building through practice and studio based collaboration. We think design should be informed by how something is assembled and the materials from which it is made. Through research, planning, and understanding community needs our studio designs and constructs architectural features and increases community engagement. This design engaged the Wagener Terrace neighborhood to the north of Hampton Park. The community had been long

overdue for a garden in their park that helped bring together the neighbors as well as teach about sustainability and healthy eating. The design had a unique challenge as the site was directly in the center of the park and the fenced in garden beds proposed that people would need to walk around to get from one side to another. Through a number of schematic iterations and refinement of designs our group of 12 students was able to design and build this community garden pavilion for the neighborhood.

By utilizing the parametric design software, Grasshopper, a design was formulated via conceptual analysis of the assigned site and its context. The design intentions of this Bike Bill Installation have developed from a series of exercises practiced in class. This design developed into a raised piece of art form in which is extended from the ceiling of the Bicycle Shed at our site. At different moments of this design there are timeline facts of bicycles and their history with Portland. The design is inside of our locked Bicycle Shed that provides those who choose to utilize bicycles as their mode of transportation the appreciation of this art

form as well as the understanding of bicycles importance in Portland. The “Bicycle DNA� will extrude from the Southern facade of the Bicycle Shed and provide outsiders the question of what lies beyond which in turn should compel them to utilize the Bicycle Shed. This design had structural complications in that it was going to be a massively heavy structure which had to be supported correctly. The design is capable of being constructed because of the simple mold that will cast 100 bike chain links out of a light plastic which will then be hung by cables from the roof of the structure.
