While pursuing my Bachelors in Landscape Archictecture at Clemson University, I found that my focus was directed primarily towards the urban enviroment. I am interested in both small and large scaled projects focusing on bringing the beauty and simplicity of nature back into the urban form.

Photographing allows me to stimulate my preception of any particular site. Looking at the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats it allows the area to become more transparent.

The objective of the project was to create an abstract, experiential landscape concentrating on texture and materials as a method of introducing nature back into the urban design fabric. There are five distinctive linear pyramidal forms throughout the site, each serving a different programatic function. These forms come from the inspiration of the mountain silhouettes that can be seen from the city center of Greenville. These forms become a dramatic staple gateway piece as the six acre site is the first thing someone sees when entering the city.

Breakaway Towers allows for all to enjoy a sense of arrival when driving into the Charleton peninsula either through public or vehicular transporation. The site is set between two major roadways on an old abandoned railroad corrador. The idea was to create a sense of connection to the city providing both leisure and function. The bottom level of the site would serve as a bus transportation facility while the upper portion allows for pedestrians to cross roadway traffic as well as avoid the commotion from the transportation port. To keep the lower level from seeming eerie, trellace structures and skylights on the top portion would allow light and excitement to the bus port.

Brittlebank Park Charleston, South Carolina resilience 2019
Sea level rise has increased tremendously in the past fifty years in the city of Charleston leaving both the scared land and the structures vulnerable. Brittlebank Park is one of those sacred places that needs a fast, yet practical solution. The idea of this project is to actually work with the sea level rise to let both the land and water serve a purpose. The proposal offers three main areas, which are a grouping of three granite water features to the left of the site, a fire pit gathering area in the right and a floating structure in the center of the site. The structure serves dual purposes as it has retractable doors and shutters that can be closed off for intimate gathering events or can be completely opened up to accommodate public concerts and bigger events.
Hillside Valley Greenville, South Carolina
Linking to Unity Park, Hillside Valley is a new 60-acre park in outskirts of Greenville, South Carolina. With the city going constantly, there is a need for new recreational areas and this plot of land would serve as a perfect place with it being a connection between three major neighborhoods and intersects to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The idea is to create a natural and ecological space in the middle of the city using earthworks, bridges, environmental islands and trails creating an exciting new civic escape.
