The NODE San Francisco, CA projected completion:

summer 2020

firm: Y.A. studio This pavilion is proposed at the entry of a new park being designed under the interstate ramps in the city of San Francisco. The structures design was influenced with site restrictions, topography, fenestration and circulation. The dynamic roof reaches upward and resonates with the interstate ramp adjacent to it, while providing a break to mimic the topography below and direct natural light into the pavilion space. Programmatic requirements for this project include three micro-retail spaces, an office space, a flex community space, a storage room, private restrooms to serve the office and public restrooms to serve the park. Designed to be an eye catching welcoming structure and an entry demarcation line from the city into the park, this project seeks to gather and promote outdoor assembly for all to enjoy the park amenities

the Bufferities Berkeley, CA projected completion:

summer 2019

firm: DDA This is a proposed 43 unit mixed-use multifamily project for a private developer in the city of Berkeley. The current site holds a gas station and is adjacent to small businesses and single-family homes. The site formally seeks a dominant structure at the corner to step down as it extends towards the residential neighborhood to soften the transition from business to single-family homes and while acting as a buffer to the sounds of traffic. With such close proximity to the BART (public transportation) this project proposes to integrate business and residential living to encourage and reactivate the area with foot traffic. This is done by limiting parking spaces, promoting car sharing programs and providing a large commercial space that can be divided up to 3 businesses.

Face-Liftties Oakland, CA completed:

summer 2016

firm: DDA The new owner of this multi-family apartment complex was seeking to revitalize and modernize the aesthetics of the structure built in the 60’s. We provided some quick options of color and material changes for the owner to provide a sense of how the structure would look with material upgrades. By cladding the front façade in a fiber cement rain screen with a warm wood texture, adding some fresh paint and a green wall the building was transformed visually into a contemporary structure. The entry was also updated from a gated entry to a covered storefront entrance providing a central location for mail and a waiting area. A pop of color at the residential unit entries added a fresh accent to the units.

WITH A POP OF COLOR OVER THE EXISTING STUCCO AND CLADDING THE STAIR TOWER IN GREY SLATE TILE WITH MATCHING ACCENT TILES, THE COLORS HELPED TO BREAK UP THE MONOLITHIC CREAM MONSTER.

FACE-LIFT TWO

SIMILAR TO FACE-LIFT ONE WE FURTHER DEFINED THE PROGRAMMATIC SPACE ALREADY EXISTING. THIS WAS DONE BY ADDING HORIZONTAL FIBER CEMENT WOOD PANELS TO THE RESIDENTIAL EXTERIOR AND PAINTING THE STAIR TOWER IN A GREY ACCENT. THE TWO SIMPLE ACTS FURTHER ENHANCED AND MODERNIZED THE AGING RESIDENTIAL STRUCTURE AND BROUGHT IT INTO CONTEMPORARY AESTHETICS, MAKING IT MORE VISUALLY APPEALING.

Rear Additiones Berkeley, CA completed:

spring 2017

firm: DDA This rear addition for a growing family was designed to maximize space while staying under 600 square feet so as to not trigger an administrative use permit with the city, thus allowing for an expedited less stringent review process. The design expanded the existing cramped two bedroom unit into a three bedroom unit with a master bath. Radiant flooring, large windows, and a shed roof add a modern contemporary addition to the rear of the existing house.

WiowG Anywhere U.S.A. / Detroit, MI December 2013 C. Wilkins The objective is to create solutions that provide mankind with more resourceful alternatives for finite natural resource use. Addressing political, industrial, and conservation issues in the arena of natural resources through technology, innovation and dedication. The goal pursues the ideal to be problem solvers in design with a concentration in preserving the earth and all the resources she has to offer‌. Conservation of fresh water is the focus of this design. There are an infinite number of ways to ensure water security but security begins with the individual. As such, we are currently redesigning tools used for water distribution in order to conserve as much of that valuable resource as possible. Water conservation in the agricultural community is important because 90% of water is `lost due to evaporation and terrestrial absorption. By the year 2030 the U.S. is estimated that it will require 40% more water than will be available to meet agricultural demands alone. The time is now to play in active role in water conservation.

Autonomous Communities Vancouver, B.C. April 2013 J. McMorrough & H. Beebe Studio This project locates itself in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia and is an exploration in creating vertical communities. Given the high-rise condo lifestyle seen throughout Vancouver this tower aims to create groups of residential floors with public spaces of common use for those occupying the building. Spaces such as a restaurants, park, gym facility, auditorium, and day care center spread themselves throughout the building. These extreme amenities plus large multifloor open atrium spaces allow for residents to gather and enjoy the views of the city with their neighbors. Every unit benefits from a personal outdoor space with operable planes of glass enclosure. The project aims to bring a sense of suburban neighborhood feelings to the vertical typology of the high-rise tower through personal outdoor space and the many forms of social interaction available.

Collaboration with Mat Ritsema & Di Wu


pg 30


The focus of this design was to take a typical community living space over a large area and translate it into a high-rise community of neighborhoods. This started with looking at the individual unit or what it means to have a house and how to translate defining characteristics into a highrise. Public vs. Private space translates public space from a communal sidewalk to an open communal gathering space in the high-rise, while the private space translates the back yard into a balcony green space.

[ ]ceanic Agriculture Anywhere / Angola April 2012 N. Robinson During World War II, Raoul Wallenberg actively produced diplomatic ties between those in need and the promise of shelter on “new” land. Part business, part politics, part architecture, and 100% noble, his plans literally worked wonder. Oceanic Agriculture works similarly. It looks at rapid deployment strategies for providing food-aid in times of prolonged civic stress. Whether the result of natural events, political isolation, or civil conflict, the loss of available food sources devastates both national and personal identity. I, me, we should do/be more in response to this. This is my plan for nutritional “occupancy”. EMERGENCY #2012_07: Angola, - a nation in civil war for 27 years, has had its infrastructure destroyed and its land littered with left-over, deadly, land mines. To farm is to risk one’s life and having little infrastructure to provide for irrigation, raising crops is increasingly hopeless as arable land borders on extinction and agricultural know-how fades.


ACTION: Oceanic Agriculture pairs the exigencies of organizations such as the World Food Program and the Global Food Crisis Program, with current disposal and mothball strategies for large military, commercial and private maritime vessels. From this pairing, the big idea is to organize, design and generate a flotilla of horizontal surfaces that become deployable seafaring farmlands. Traveling and operating in international waters, this new aggregate territory breaks free from governmental control by any one nation. Once moored, the fleet loses and gains more and less “land” depending on season and cultural diet. Smaller ferries and feeder boats transport bounties between coastlines and supply decks. Housing freighters accommodate workers and agricultural trainees a like. Composting frigates and waste treatment vessels also become part of the temporal territory. Through aggregation, the singular fields become farm. The farm scales toward the civic and the civic, threatens to constitute a free-range nation. In the end, ideology is at work and “Angola” may literally be on the move

The number of people that are just under

undernourished in the world is

1,000,000,000 People

That is the equivalent to the populations of

North America and Europe Combined

This Project took a look at the world as a whole to find who is hungry, what are the causes of hunger and how if possible to fix this dilemma. Upon research it was easy to find which countries are starving. Further investigation showed that these countries lack government stability and are drought ridden. Geographically the climate is insufficient to grow crops in large amounts and with governments in a constant battle for control there is little money and time to produce the infrastructure needed to develop the necessities for farm production.

[Right: Map highlights the countries with the largest percentage of population undernourished] [Far Right Page Top: Highlights Countries with greatest risk of political instability] [Far Right Page Bottom: Shows average temperatures throughout the world.]


Suisun Bay, California: Home to the Suisun National Defense Reserve Fleet, this Mothball fleet Consist of Supply ships and Naval warships in a preservation state, able to be deployed within 20-120 days when called upon for a national emergency. At its peak the bay held more than 350 ships, as of 2010 it held 52 ships.

Idea: The Idea is to utilize Old Ships that are destined to be decommissioned or dumped and to utilize their top decks for agriculture. There would be little cost involved as all is needed is to ensure the hull is functional and the top deck to be retrofitted with soil

Beaumont, Texas: Home to the Beaumont National Reserve Fleet, this Mothball fleet consist of military auxiliary ships, tankers and cargo ships in a preservation state, able to be deployed within 20 – 120 days when called upon for a national emergency


Bay of Nouadhibou, Mauritania Regarded as one of the world’s largest shipping graveyards, the Bay of Nouadhibou has become a dumping ground for ships that are no longer of use. It is estimated that at any given time there are at least 300 ships beached on the shore

Alang, India Arguably the worlds largest ship graveyard. This site oversees the dismantling of up to 50% of the worlds retired shipping industry


CCV-003 Corn Carrier Vessel is a decommissioned aircraft carrier. This vessel has been re-outfitted so the landing deck grows corn and the belly of the ship process corn. Silos accessible from the top deck allow for easy picking and dropping of corn into storage. When ready and needed the corn is easily ready to be processed in 5 steps by mechanically dropping the corn from the silo to the conveyer belt where the corn is inspected and clean. Next the corn is steeped for 30-40 hours to break down the starch and protein bonds. The next step involves a course grind to separate the germ from the kernel. The remaining product is called slurry and consists of protein, fiber and starch. The slurry is finely ground and screened to separate the fiber from the starch and protein. The starch is separated from the remaining slurry via hydrocyclones. The starch can then be converted into syrup or made into various other products through a fermentation process.


CSX-009 Cargo Ship experimental (CSX) is an experimental ship that converts an old cargo ship into a slaughter boat. CSX is a hybridization of a steam engine, submarine and Ceratothoa imbricata (tongue eating parasite found in fish). The butcher ship leads the cows down to the butcher shop where they are knocked out and then hung to have their blood drained and prepared for the butcher. When ready the meat is dropped below to the conveyor belt where the meat is separated and stored in a cooler.

Day 1

Day 55

Day 368

UN ship arrives first to set up Mooring points and USNS Mercy arrives shortly after to assist with refugees to come aboard and learn techniques in agriculture

More ships arrive weekly and the land that forms is starting to see a central node as it disburses outward. The number of UN workers decline as more and more refugees take on responsibilities.

Just over a year and Oceanic Agriculture is still expanding. Refugees continue to take on responsibilities awaiting their nation to provide safe soil for them to work on


Day 6588 Over 18 years have gone by since the start of the refugee mission. UN personnel have all left, except for medical personnel to assist with their needs. Oceanic Agriculture is now autonomous in the refugees daily lives. With the simple raise of a new flag on the ship they now claim their independence; free from their homeland and full of hope.

WALLENBERG PIN-UP | UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN |

APRIL 27, 2012


High / Low Culture Detroit, MI December 2011 T. Patterson The design of the Museum is a mixed-use program layout with gallery space acting as an architectural beacon of artistic freedom. The mixed use of program will produce a structure that connects that past industrial age of Detroit to the new and contemporary look of what Detroit strives to be in the 21st century. Cuts and voids of space produced around the industrial brick building will form the glass contemporary edge that calls out to passerby’s intriguing and welcoming them to enter. Through a hybridization of brick and glass, positive and negative space will be produced allowing both spaces to be utilized for artistic expression. Detroit is a mixed venue just like the museum promises to be, a place where artist will swarm upon to broach political concerns, cultural questions and freedom of expression. From a city that was once considered the Paris of the west, D-museum will strive to bring that name back to Detroit for the 21st century as an artistic venue for the world.
