The team unit was a collaborative effort in our studio to create a singular module that could stand alone or be connected with others in order to create an object or space. The units were to have the function of connecting in multiple different ways to maximize the possible configurations.

Corryville Library

9


The objective of this project was to analyze an existing library in the area surrounding the University of Cincinnati and create technical drawings. The plans, sections, and elevations were all done based on our personal measurements. The next part of the project was to diagram certain aspects of the building such as light, circulation, and foot traffic through the spaces.

ludlow literary Center

11


The literary center in Ludlow was designed to be not only a library, but a community space as well. It contains classrooms, an art gallery, and a lecture hall in addition to spaces you would regularly see in a library such as book stacks, computer rooms, and reading areas.

The form of my literary center is based on units of three, there are three units set at different distances from the street and also stacked on top of each other. The spaces inside of the center drove the sizes of each of the units and where they overlapped. The open atrium space was reflective of the idea of community and receptivity.

Museum Study

17


The facade I designed to replace the existing facade of the American Folk Art Museum was about pulling pieces of a grid away from the face of the building. The idea was to create views where the street wouldn’t be directly visible. The second half of this project was reconfiguring the plans of the first floor 18 and mezzanine levels.

The circulation in my pool house is meant to wrap around the main spaces and create views to spaces that may not be immediately accessible. Each of the circulation bands is raised onto a different layer in order to draw attention to each path. The changing rooms were designed to frame the sauna so the entry sequence would be for men and women to retreat to their individual changing rooms and then enter the sauna.

John Poe Architects

23


During my time co-oping at John Poe Architects I improved my Revit skills tremendously. I worked as a part of the BIM department for the company and transferred 2D existing drawings into 3D models for our client. The buildings were modeled individually and then imported into a campus model for our client to use for planning and documentation purposes.
