C Hi, I’m Claire I am a designer and colorful thinker with a passion for interior, visual, and graphic design. After graduation from the University of Missouri I decided to head back to the scenic state of Illinois, but this time taking on a new city...Chicago. I spend an abundance of time excitedly assisting designers at work, but when I am not there you can most likely find me planning my next adventure, listening to music, doodling in my sketchbook, or drinking a spot of tea while rewatching episodes of Downton Abbey. I am very excited to continue my professional career in Chicago and find out what my next step in life is. So, check out my work and see what I am all about...

Senior Thesis Urban Living Airstream Precedent Analysis Creative Works


SENIOR THESIS MIXED-USE COMMERCIAL LOT The goal of this project was to design a mixed-use building that can be occupied by two local businesses. My design intention was to incorporate three themes throughout the architecture and interior design of the lot, they are: urban, entities, and exposure. The three elements found in this structure can be largely seen through the form itsself. Standing out from the surrounding buildings, the glass and metal facades, exposed wood cladding and beam systems, and the presence of two joined but separate entities exhibit a sence of honesty and exposure throughout the building. The presence of natural elements, open concept plans, transparency of functions, and contemporary finish selections allow the interior spaces to come to life and provide opportunities for the occupants to experience my three themes in a variety of representations and forms.

URBAN LIVING DESIGN FIRM & RESIDENCE

This studio project is designed to house a creative design firms studio space and a residence. The project location is in the downtown neighborhood of Jefferson City, Missouri. Since the space is within an urban neighborhood I was inspired to create an environment that visually combined old and new elements together to create contemporary forms. The design firms studio space is designed to provide a multi-use collaborative work environment that contains flexible and functional work spaces that form a studio that is productive, inviting, and cohesive. The residence interior is an open concept living space that transition upwards into a small greenhouse and private patio on the third level. The space combines contemporary and traditional design elements and materials that come together to create a comfortable and urban home.

airstream mobile live, work, & play

This airstream is designed for two lifestyle bloggers that travel across the United States. They search for outdoor adventures, opportunities to learn about new cultures and events that allow them to live life to it’s fullest; then they fully document their experiences in this mobile home. The space provides areas for both personal and technological activities and aesthetically combines nature and technology. The trailer also allows nature to become part of its being by bringing in the surrounding scenery though large, organically shaped windows that extend throughout the length of the trailer creating panoramic views and a space that is comfortable, functional, and energetic.

PRECEDENT ANALYSIS FARNSWORTH HOUSE

Through these diagrams and case studies I was able to discover, through analytical methods, the primary organization factors that operate within these buildings. My approach was to reveal the preoccupations of the original designer, display volumetric disposition, circulation patterns, key axes, and structural systems within the building.


farnsworth house Ludwig Miles van der Rohe Plano, Illinois The Farnsworth house is elevated off the ground and supported by “I�-beams that are gridded, they support both the house and the cantilevered roof that extends over the exterior portion of the upper level. The limited palette, which consists of mainly steel and glass creates a beautiful and simplistic design for the house. Steel cross girders connect to the beams that run the length of the roof, precast concrete planks follow, then foam glass insulation, and the waterproof membrane tops the roof. The floors follow a similar pattern; steel girders are topped with lightweight concrete fill on concrete slabs, and then travertine slabs serve as the floor material on both levels.


The Atheneum Richard Meier New Harmony, Indiana The Atheneum is a tourist center and museum located directly next to the Wabash River that separates Indiana from Illinois. This building features contemporary forms and details. There is a combination of exterior and interior spaces intertwined throughout the structure that allows for various uses, multiple split level galleries, and various stairs and ramps that create a variety of journies through the spaces for its occupants.


notre-dame du haut Le Corbusier Ronchamp, France This chapel is located at the top of a hill overlooking the small French village of Ronchamp. Multiple entrances are found around the chapel to create a plan that provides natural movement and circulation. This chapel features a main worship space, private prayer altars, and exterior worship and reception spaces. Lighting plays a key role in this structure. Rather than using direct sunlight Le Corbusier diffuses natural light into the space in multiple forms to create a glow throughout the chapel. Adjacent to the main entrance small holes grown into large windows that illuminate the main corridor, each tower features a vertical slit that diffuses the light, and the exterior wall located behind the altar is not attached to the crab shell like roof, instead it leaves a small gap that leaks sunlight over the entire chapel.


CREATIVE WORKS MULTI = MEDIA ART

The following are creative works that I have completed over the last semester while experimenting different mediums. The first image is a pen and ink drawing of the profile of a lion. It was completed in a negative effect. The second group of images were completed with paper. They reflect the different aspects that the social media platform Twitter is built with and reflects to its users: how Tweeters are constantly interacting, how your words are permanent and are not always portrayed as you wished, and lastly that the platform is built on trends, current news, and hashtags that speak loudly. The third set of images are architectural photographs from a few of my favorite cities: Chicago, New York City, and London. The intention of the images is to represent moments from our daily lives that also capture beautiful architectural landscapes and icons.
