CINCINNATI ATHENAEUM Fall 2015

The first actual building assignment was given to us at the end of the first semster of our 2nd year. We were to design an Athenaeum in one of eight sites in the Over-the-Rhine area of downtown Cincinnati. An athenaeum was defined to us as a building that houses various programs (galleries, libraries, lecture halls, etc.) with some parts of the building being accessible to the public, but a majority of it being member’s only / private spaces. The overall idea was for your building to act like an Athenaeum did in Ancient Greek times, as a place for gathering and then for apprciating and learning about the arts, sciences, and culture.

CINCINNATI ROW CLUB Summer 2016

During the second semester of our 2nd year, we were given the site of General James Taylor Park in Newport, Kentucky. In this massive site, we were assigned the task of designing a new boat house and field house for the rowing clubs that used the existing location in the south end of the park. Our primary design challenge in this project was deciding how our two buidings would interact with the thirty foot levee that ran the length of the site. Incorporating space to hold all of the team boats, space for rental boats, and a viewing place out onto the river during races were the key parts of the program for the boat house. Then the field house was to hold row tanks of various sizes for practicing in inclemnet weather, in addition to a typical gym and locker room area.

COVINGTON ROWHOUSE Spring 2017

The first project of our third year was to design a rowhouse in an existing site in Covington, KY. Given a client profile that was desiginated one of the three site positions (all directly adjacent to one another). I was given client B, which positioned me in the middle of two other proposed rowhouses. The basis behind my client’s desired program was to have exterior green spaces, and views from the interior spaces into these exterior spaces. Considering I was sandwiched in between two other buildlings, “theoretically,” it was a design challenge to make these outside spaces felt from the inside core parts of the program.

OTHER WORKS Spring & Fall 2016 In addition to the architecture related works and the work from wentz design, i have two other projects that i have worked on during my time at daap. both of these last two projects were group efforts that weren’t directly related to building design. With the first being an analysis of an existing building, and the second being a look at the relationship between body and space.


CASE STUDY

LOVELL BEACH HOUSE

Fall 2015

In the first semester of our Sophomore year, we were assigned a case study on a building to research and complete drawings on. I was given Robert Schindler’s “Lovell Beach House” in Newport Beach, California. The layout on the left is a composition created by my partner and I, where we presented twelve 8”x8” drawings, ten 16”x16” drawings, and two models that were to have a coherent theme throughout (representing site, elevation, floor plans, etc.). The six drawings on the right are my 16”x16” drawings: Top Left- Section (Hand, Photoshop, Illustrator) Top Center- Structure Model (Foamcore, Bass) Top Right- Elevation (Hand, Illustrator) Bottom Left- Spatial (Hand, Illustrator) Bottom Center- Exploded Axon (AutoCad, Illustrator) Bottom Right- Lovell Health House Axon (Illustrator)

INTERACTIVE FOLLY Spring 2015

The folly was our first look at a human-scale construction in first year stuido. Designed to occupy mulitple people in a 4’x4’x8’ space, we were to make an occupiable, architectural installation out of only MDF and 2”x4”x8’ joists. Our final model ended up being an iteration of someone elses sketch model, which allowed for a large communitive team effort. As chief designer of the final project for my team, I helped make the major decisions for how our model was to look. Takinginspiration from the shaping of a Victorian dating chair, we composed the final model out of sheets of MDF as well as 2”x4”x8’ wood joists. The drawing on the next spread was completed using Rhino and Adobe Illustrator.
