Arts Pavilion

Curvalicious Circulation In this project, we were asked to react to the physical and atmospheric conditions of the site to create a pavilion that displays art. Analysis of this site showed it to be a circulation corridor and very rarely did people spend time on the site. Elegant curved forms intrigue the user to draw them off of the path where they can then look at the art displayed within the pavilion. The pavilion engages the three circulation paths to grab the users’ attention. Each side of the pavilion mimics conditions on the site, the west side uses overlapping curves to recreate the light and shadow conditions the many trees cast on the site. The east side of the site is wide and open, so the pavilion encloses a large open space to allow for larger gatherings, including seasonal activities like an ice carving competition or a small outdoor concert. The pavilion gives visitors a place to pause within a busy movement path by grabbing their attention using light and form.

Culinary Incubator Setting the Stage for Cuisine

The goal of this project was to design a culinary incubator by rethinking typical ideas of program for cooking spaces and creating a place that easily accommodates starting a new food-related business. A culinary incubator is a place where food entrepreneurs can experiment with different recipes, develop a small business, and eventually present their ideas to potential investors and clients. My design sets the stage for chefs to present their culinary creations to the public and create excitement about their up and coming business. In order for aspiring chefs to be successful, investors and customers must be excited about their food. This building creates intriguing performance spaces to facilitate interaction between culinary artists and members of the community.

Heath Ceramics Factory

Exploring Compression and Openness in Different Materials This project explored properties of different materials to create a factory and showroom where ceramics are created and sold. My design incorporates steel trusses and concrete to explore ideas of openness and compression. Concrete is used in the showroom and sets apart the private, employee parts of a showroom by increasing the ceiling thickness and lowering the height of the ceiling. The more public store part of the showroom has a thinner, taller ceiling. The showroom, with its structure comprised of steel trusses, holds a series of small compressed workspaces bordered by float glass that highlight the repetition of the trusses. The private employee area of the factory is hidden behind the large kiln that sits at the center of the space. The material was accentuated to create large, open spaces for the public spaces, and smaller, more enclosed private spaces.

Drawing

Staircase in Rapson Hall This project used drawing as a tool to analyze the character of a space I found interesting. I chose this staircase to study because I found it intriguing that such a beautiful staircase was hidden in the back of the building and rarely used. I was at first curious about the faceted planes and then began to wonder about the organization of the staircase. I decided to understand the stair by juxtaposing its simple section with the complex view from the bottom of the staircase. The staircase has both elements that are simple and complex and the two drawings capture the way the understanding of the staircase oscillates between its easily understood structural logic and the fascinating faceted planes.


Community Arts Center Creating a Place for Wildlife as Art

In this project, the goal was to create a community arts center that would highlight the features of the site and provide a space for the university community and the surrounding community to come together Each programmatic element was isolated and arranged on the site from public to private, the most public is the gallery where visual arts are held, the most private is the theater which holds performing arts, and in between them is the education space for teaching art. Transparent elements connect the buildings and each allows nature to come through the building. The botanical garden between the education building and the gallery is encased in glass and brings nature inside as if it were an art exhibit. The lobby that connects the theater and education spaces is also made of glass and is lifted 2 feet above the ground to allow animals and plants under the building Natural elements wind through the site and building to unite the separated arts programs. above section model shows the natural materials of the building: dark board form concrete and wood Theater

Urban Streetscape

Creating Community Along an Urban Streetscape The project goal was to create an intentional urban corridor in a 4 block stretch along the light rail line. First an apartment building was designed for one block of the site, then the ideas from that block were expanded to the entire 4 block area. The apartment building has community spaces which connect to each other physically, visually and programmatically in order to enhance the community experience as a whole and bring smaller groups of people together into a larger community. The idea of connecting public and private spaces to create community continues across the site. New buildings infill the site, chosen to highlight the site’s history as an entertainment, cultural, and economic hub. At the center of the site, the four historic categories come together, each with an anchor building. The streetscape has been intentionally modified to enhance the neighborhood for the experience of pedestrians.

The streetscape explores connections between public and private areas and connects the user to the greater history and culture of the site. This creates connections between users of different spaces in order to strengthen community.
