TED WORKS

TED Works is the result of a partnership with Chris Saunders TED Works “ideas worth Doing”. It is time to stop merely talking and time to start doing. It is time to put out backs once more to the task at hand. We as a people need to stop merely planning the future and start building it. The old industrial model is dead and the Midwest with it. We must reinvent ourselves or perish. TED WORKs is a satellite of the University of Cincinnati and TED Talks. Together we can shape a space that creates the physical manifestation of the ideas and energy that still thrives beneath the cataracts of lethargy. TED WORKs is such a place. TED Works fuses the purpose of both University and TED with a focus on the fabrication of a physical product or experimentation. Each academic year a new “faculty” will be chosen from the pool of TED Talks presenters. These will be given funding and a group of students from a multidisciplinary background of engineers, designers and fabricators to pursue their “ideas worth spreading”. The University of Cincinnati will provide the pool of students but also assisting professors and deans that will help the visiting faculty establish a curriculum and syllabus. TED Works will anchor the neighborhood of Camp Washington. Camp Washington embodies the entire rust belt. It is everywhere and nowhere. Its fate was tied to that of industry and today both are desolate and abandoned. It is the ripe nucleus that still possesses the rich history, character and nostalgia of its industrial past but little else.

The Legacy Lab is an individual exploration that challenges the traditional linear design methodology of academia. The prompt called for a space to facilitate fabrication, studio and gallery space on Cranbrook’s campus. The project investigates the phenomenological approach to design with a strong emphasis on the evocative nature of material, light, sound and form to bring forth expression of the primordial.

FABRICATION, STUDIO AND GALLERY CRANBROOK, MICHIGAN

LEGACY LAB

The studio challenged the linear process and sought to look less at architecture as the expression of an architectural god complex. Rather the design is driven by a concept that integrates and informs every scale of the design. The approach was thus non traditional in that it did not begin with a form or plan but rather with analatiques of signature architects. These analatiques investigated in graphically these architects attitudes and techniques for handling site, space and detail. The board to the right is the analatique of Williams and Tsiens handling of detail. The threshold was the first design exercise and it focused on the detail. This illustrates the ideology of the studio that sought to look at each element of the design as it relates to the overall concept.

The story of the American city is one of collapse, economic failure, uncertainty, fear and doubt. These factors have fused to create a very negative view of the urban. This point of view is only now starting to be overcome. The city of Cincinnati has suffered from this even more than most urban environments. The riots of 2001 punctuated the fear and negative views with which the city was viewed. ReFab seeks to encapsulate this history of fear and negativity and juxtapose it with the current revival, hope and enlightenment that is sweeping the Pendalton neighborhood. The center is designed to serve as a studio for modern making. The center features digital art and fabrication while also containing classrooms, retail and coffee shop.

Cincinnati Brewing District Museum Wielerts on Vine

WALKING FLIGHT Immigrants could only afford to live in tiny, rented tenements. The entire family often had only 225 square feet. The family looked for a means to escape this cramped existence and Wielerts provided the perfect outlet. Beer Gardens such as Wielerts provided the desired release for not just the men but entire family. Beer gardens became integral to both the business and pleasure aspect of life in OTR. Famously even political were decided from its tables. This and the Germans’ cultural affiliation with beer were the catalyst for the development of the 3rd largest brewing district in the country in OTR.


The Erie Canal enabled industry to locate in Over the Rhine, OTR, and still be able to use water transport. This also gave OTR a natural barrier that clearly defined the neighborhood and was one of the main reasons it developed such a strong cultural identity.

German immigrants came to Cincinnati in order to unsuccessful land reforms, escape economic depression and political upheaval. The Germans in OTR consumed 2.5 times the national average of beer annually. This averaged out to 40 gallons of beer for every man woman and child. Meaning this small family would have averaged a consumption of 200 gallons of beer per capita.

ACADEMIC

Over the Rhine is a neighborhood of Cincinnati that was developed for new industry along the Erie Canal during the industrial revolution. The labor to run the factories came largely from German immigrants.


WALKING FLIGHT


The roof on the original building had collapsed in some spaces and needed to be replaced. The solution was to give structure a domed glass roof with external, operable louvers to control glare and heat gain. The glass roof is in keeping with the feeling of continuity that the projects seeks to create. These seven masses represent the seven bars that museum goers would visit during their experience. The bars would serve small taster beers that would be sampled as one moved along the ramp examining the historical information and artifacts that populates the original, exterior walls. The bar tenders would also serve as your tour guide directing you through the space.

ACADEMIC

The ramp is designed to tie the composition together. It is accessed by taking an elevator to the very top and then ramping down. The ramp is at a five degree slope and provides an intimate interaction with the different artifacts and microbrewery from all possible angles as museum goers move through the space. The working microbrewery was designed as a feature piece of the museum and as a catalyst for restoring interest in brewing at all scales. The different bars would serve beer brewed at the museum. Museum goers would be able to participate in home brewing tutorials and beer appreciation classes featuring local breweries. The facade of the existing building would remain untouched except for renovation work. This adaptive reuse project sought to enhance the impact of historic references by comparing and contrasting it with current architectural interventions. This modern treatment would respond to the industrial nature of time in which Wielerts was originally built.

The section perspective line drawings show the composition of the interior spaces in the museum. The museum is designed to create a linear movement system creates vertical and horizontal movement through a central, unified space. This is achieved through the use of ramps and the removal of typical floor and ceiling layout.

Fresno, CA is running out of water. They are totally reliant on the aquifer that lies beneath them. This aquifer is reaching depletion and with no other recourse they look for solutions.

H2OME

Drylands Competition Fresno, California

I worked in conjunction with two other students, Whitehurst and Liu, to design a home that not only captures and conserves water but also channels water back into the earth. The system was highly unitized and draws from the nearby train tracks as a means to transport and implement this strategy.

The Journey is the total disconnect with the stress of our daily lives to reconnect fully with nature and ourselves. The competition brief called for a dwelling for urban dwellers. The form was derived as the deconstruction of the most recognizable urban form, the skyscraper. This also represented the break from “normal life� that is filled with the stress and clutter of careers and trite daily concerns.

NATURAL TALENT USGBC Competition 2010 Regional Runner-Up The Salvation Army and U.S. Green Building Council hosted the 2010 Natural Talent Design Competition, with the theme Small, Green, Affordable. The prompt called for a design that would be an affordable, 800 square foot green home for an elderly client in the Broadmoor, New Orleans neighborhood. Broadmoor lost much of its built form to Hurricane Katrina and this competition sought to alleviate the troubles of this community. The requirements for this competition included:

Orange Tree Atelier is a multidisciplinary organization of student and professionals tasked with discovering and designing new solutions for socially responsible causes. The Good Shepherd Orphanage tasked us through the Rotary Club of Cynthiana with investigating architectural, structural, industrial, and sanitation solutions. We did not want our design work and proposals to equate with a hand out but rather through the use of local materials and workmanship give not only a sense of ownership and pride but also the ability to provide for themselves independent of foreign aid.

ORANGE TREE ATELIER


PRACTICAL These renderings not only show the building through different parts of the day but also the built forms ability to transform itself through the use of the large sliding gate to create a space both public or private depending on need.


ORANGE TREE ATELIER Deforestation is responsible for causing erosion that has stripped the country bare of topsoil. This has led to the failure of farming upon which most of the population had relied. Thus we quickly ruled out wood as a potential building material. Earthbag Construction We examined the other possible design solutions and eventually decided upon Hard C’s for its simplicity of construction, durability, availability of needed materials and excellent performance in hurricanes and earthquakes. The design reinforces the durable nature of the earthbags by adopting Structurally Independent Forms that can create larger spaces or smaller nodes that were designed on the human scale to afford maximum usability in cramped urban areas such as Port-au-Prince.

http://

The Hard C was designed at the human scale to create nodes that can function separately or together to create the spaces needed for daily life. The average Haitian lot is only 400 square feet and it does not have the luxury of running water or air conditioning. The photos to the left show some modeled variations of individual hard c’s and their possible uses. This structural shape took its inspiration from a project done by Architecture for Humanity. They did a project in Africa that used this form to resist tsunami waves.

ZGF is a large firm with office in Los Angeles, New York, Washington, Seattle, and the headquarters in Portland. I worked at the Portland office for six months. This was my first introduction to a large firm with over two hundred staff in the office. I worked primarily in CAD, Rhino and InDesign. I was responsible for picking up redlines, putting together presentations and working in the model shop. The model shop was fully outfitted with a CNC machine, multiple laser cutters, 3D printing and a full wood shop. Five full-time employees manned the shop with the help of intern labor. ZGF has a large focus on sustainability and is one of the leaders in the field. The culture of the office is very much focused on accountability and forward thinking. I gained much valuable experience and exposure to skills, techniques and practices that have helped to shape my understanding and career goals.
