Personal Statement For me, my college experience at Drury University in Springfield, MO has been a life altering opportunity that has changed the way I think about the environment and the people who live in it. I am originally from a small rural town in southeast Missouri and am currently looking for new experiences to expand my knowledge not only in the practice of architecture but as a person. In my free time, I enjoy politics, film, running, art, and music. At the moment, in architecture and all things I create, I am interested in the use of practical, locally sourced materials that come together to create a phenomenological response. The following portfolio is a reflection this ideal and is expressed through graphics.

Rino Co-op Fall 2017

Architectural Design IX: Exploration Sharing is an elementary philosophy in cities and therefore is immediately expressed in its buildings. When given the task to design a vertical farm it came with an automatic challenge of how people occupy the building as well. Reconfiguring the program of a tower like residences to small living and sharing entertaining spaces and food production, I physically realized a cohesive tower that fit with Rino Arts District industrial landscape. The framework filled by the program communicates a sense of inclusiveness and community while developing individuality.

Hearth Fall 2017

Architectural Design IX: Exploration After a visit to Tablerock Lake in southwest Missouri, I was given the task to design a cabin for a typical Ozarkian. I found this culture valued simplicity, natural materials, and a habit of how a cabin would be built. I took that idea of a typical Ozark cabin and broke it down. the most functional piece I discovered was the hearth. Centered around the space inside, it drove an opportunity to make the piece distinct in the design.

Drury Theatre Spring 2017

Comprehensive Design VIII: Comprehensive Studio In this teaching theater for Drury University my goal was to divide the program into three major components and organize them on a linear circulated path with ultimate campus accessibility. The building seeks to provide functionality during the day and deliver an over-sensitized experience of interaction to the forms, lighting, and space within while visiting a production at night.

Moire Credenza Fall 2016

Architecture Topics: Technology and Sustainability Moire Effect is a visual illusion that occurs when viewing a pattern that is superimposed on another pattern where it differs in relative size, angle, or spacing. The Moire effect can be found in everyday objects like window screens, and photographs of televisions. This credenza is a purposeful representation of this illusion and dignifies the human interaction with the object. While using the sliding doors, it creates dynamism when the patterns are superimposed as well as reveals a red orange interior reinforcing its response to interaction. The functions of the piece request shelving on the interior, a recessed impression in the ply wood top to hold decanters, keys and other objects, and cord holes in the back for electronics. The credenza can be used in dining rooms, as a television stand, and an entry piece. The materials are comprised of sheet metal, laminated plywood, and laser cut sheet metal.

Noel Riverfront Fall 2016

Architectural Design VI: Community Studies This project was a quick exercise to focus on conceptual infrastructure in my community outreach studio. The banks of the Elk River along the edge of the city center of Noel, Missouri and Highway 90 have suffered from significant erosion. I proposed the banks be stabilized with the simple component of a gabion. A gabion is a metal framed rectangular “brick� that, in this case, is filled with limestone rock. This component would be economical, use local materials, and provide a lifetime of infrastructure. While stabilizing the bank,

Moon City Fall 2015

Architectural Design V: Synthesis

The Moon City project was a plan to design a residential complex to follow in the rezoning of the woodland heights neighborhood to conceive live/work spaces for artists. The site to be built was on the corner of Lyon and Chase Street. The program included 22 to 40 residential units and work spaces for each. The site was gritty and industrial and the people around seemed to value tradition. I organized the program into live on the second floor and work on the ground floor. I cut the program to facilitate circulation and a hub for the complex. Then, I introduced familiar form with a pitched roof and formally adding a centralized nave with clerestories for light. Lastly, I bent the entire form at the pedestrian bridge to create a public plaza in front.
