Business Incubator Building This studio focused on how to design a business incubator building that would provide informal office space as well as maker spaces. The district that the site is in has a varying demographic, with large numbers of homeless people. Giving opportunities for those less fortunate, along with affordable housing, can help bring those in said situation a way back into society. The restaurant on the first floor would be employed by those in need of learning skills, that could be tangentially ran by the Culinary Institute across the street. The maker spaces can also be utilized by the Pacific Northwest Center for Arts to teach trade skills with a large gallery space on the first floor to show products of learned skills.

Barcelona Urban Acoustics Research This program looked at how to more effectively design urban spaces for noise mitigation, air quality, and general experience of a space. To better understand how these phenomenon effect urban areas, we used sensors and Arduino boards to gather data that was then visualized. A final design prototype was developed in response to the data. My group (sound mitigation) developed a series of calculations based on buidling uses to judge the urban sensitivity and tell how much intervention is necessary for each space.

Live/Work Production Facility

Spring 2017 Studio Rhino | Revit | Photoshop | Illustrator

This studio looked at creating a space in the old industrial zone of inner-east Portland that can host both housing and a production facility. Doing so can help expand both without sacrificing space in an already densely built neighborhood. This project contains both affordable housing for artists as well as market rate housing. The production facility is sunken with a public garden in a park-like setting for growing herbs and other botanicals for the facility to use.

Fall 2016 Studio Rhino | Revit | Photoshop | Illustrator

As a part of the Sustainable Cities Initiative, this studio looked at three different sites with three different uses and how they can connect a small downtown to create a place for people to not only visit, but to live; to help revive an urban area. The programs were: hotel, farmers’ market, and performing arts center. The site for the performing arts center was on the western edge of the downtown corridor, across the street form a nationally recognized carousel museum. Another anchor, along with a large restaurant, would help bring more foot traffic to that end, with additional land on the site that can be used for more housing in the downtown area. This would help create the additional 24/7 density that is essential for any urban area to survive and thrive.

Acoustic Work University of Oregon

10

The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art on the University of Oregon’s campus was in need of a remodel of the meeting space in order to start a weekly faculty lounge. The space had difficulty with both aesthetics and acoustics, the reverberation time was far too long to have multiple people in the room having different conversations comfortably. Putting sound baffling materials on the ceiling perimeter above where most of the socializing occurs in the room and a rug that will also help attenuation were the key components of the acoustic characteristics in this space. Once the acoustics were fixed, I was asked to be the design principle to help finish the complete remodel.

Urban Design Proposal Northwest Portland is currently home to a large USPS office. The goal of the proposal is to maximize the site’s impact on its surroundings to increase foot traffic and security. Our group looked at the external forces around the site: an art school, retail, housing, as well as the planned pedestrian green loop that will further link the east side with downtown. Taking all of these into consideration, it was very important to create a crux for all of these to meet in a very pedestrian-focused area.

Modular Housing Terminal Studio

Using modular delivery parameters, we designed a prototype in the first term that can be used on three different sites in Portland. With minimal adjustments to the prototype, we chose one site to optimize the housing’s impact on the neighborhood. Using the townhouse concept modestly increases the density of the neighborhood without having to develop a large apartment building. Using a picture window on the second floor with a bench and bookshelf system also challenges peoples’ expectation of home from simply being a place of solitude to a place of prospect and refuge.
