The Other Market Street Park

The Other Market Street Park is an urban sanctuary fusing public and private realms of the downtown mall and current Market Street Park into one concealed space. Learning from the lessons of the current Market Street Park, paths tangential to the center lead to and form an inner courtyard; this lesson is translated into the structure as the voids -- formed by the circulation -- create five buildings extruded with three distinctive programs. Its 7200 square foot site is occupied in its entirety to serve as a center for culture for the entirety of the Charlottesville community; temporary and permanent exhibits, a coworking space, maker space, and urban gardens serve as one entity to inform one another to greater serve the cultural center.

Upon arrival, visitors will first see a gentle grade of four buildings raising to a single, unified height with a back piece raising to the heights of the downtown mall. Walls cutting into the ground and sky invite the user down to a hidden courtyard, out of sight from the street’s onlookers. Upon entering to an ADA accessible ramp, the paths creating the courtyard extrude down to form the walls of the exhibit, with apertures in place to create connections between the exhibits. With triangular formations and natural rises in heights, the Other Market Street Park fits in with the existing conditions to form a cohesive dialogue with the preconditions of the site.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — The city of Charlottesville was engulfed by violence on Saturday as white nationalists and counterprotesters clashed in one of the bloodiest fights to date over the removal of Confederate monuments across the South. White nationalists had long planned a demonstration over the city’s decision to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee. But the rally quickly exploded into racial taunting, shoving and outright brawling, prompting the governor to declare a state of emergency and the National Guard to join the police in clearing the area.

Being in such proximity to the Market Street Park, the Other Market Street Park is a direct response to the Robert E. Lee statue and surrounding park. The museum takes a non-charged stance at the charge park, allowing it to view non-biased art in a divisive political landscape. It was suggested to fragment the structure to frame every view other than the Lee Statue, but that rejection of history, no matter the connotation or context seams in itself irresponsible to the state’s history. While progressively looking at the statue’s future, there is no clear answer: removing it is inherently historically irresponsible while keeping it is emphatically culturally irresponsible.

“Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.� .

Three Experimental Houses

Based on the same logic taking on unique forms, three houses were formed around the practice of a minimalistic and simple life. Designed for the single person, each house engages the landscape and skyscape in unique ways with nature (solar, topogrpahy, and lanscape) being a guide for their forms. The first house, the Surveyor House, is based on the logics of Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large Volumes, working as a single entity to become one horizontal home with three good rooms. Oriented based on lighting conditions, each room creates unique spaces that have the possibility to facilitate a certain type of program. These three volumes arrange themselves softly and gently on the land, allowing visitors to slips between the volumes.

The second house, the Lunatic House, continues this logic by arranging three volumes vertically, allowing visitors to ascend to private and public heights with a constant respect towards nature. The last house, the Nomad House, takes these ideas of scale to an extreme, introducing Extra Small and Extra Large volumes. By spreading out houses across the country in one logical path, 105 repetitive houses pepper the continental United States. Formed for a runner (the horizontal form), the biker (the vertical form), and the driver (the anti-diagonal void), spaces are created to reject the position of their daily task. By drastically separating these forms, the space between the house becomes as important as the house itself, allowing a 2500 ftÂł room to occupy an entire country.

Threedom: The Pod Project

The “Threedom” pod provides individuals with the opportunity to design their own study space. Constructed out of recycled carpet tubes, the cylindrical geometry of the material is assembled into three separate study spaces, each unique and reconfigurable. The polygonal chambers can be assembled into a multitude of spaces. For individual work, an equilateral triangle configuration provides three isolated study chambers. A “hemi-hexagonal” configuration allows for communal work, providing space for three individuals to work together and in close proximity. Two of the three units can be arranged to form a pentagon, allowing for two people to work together, while the third unit is annexed for solo activities. Infinite arrangements await those who interact with the “Threedom” pod.

Each unit in the pod has a unique geometry subtracted from its form, creating a study space catered to individual preference. Units have been carved into cubical, spherical and elliptical spaces – each inform different postures and abilities to interact with others, covering a large range of seating preferences. At the human scale, each individual pod is design to comfortably fit one regular person. The construction of each pod follows a simple series of notching tubes and layering bands of cardboard within those notches. Further arranging leads to a light filled roof producing a condition that engages the environment panoptically.

Recognized for their portfolio of projects spanning multi-family commercial projects to a range of living, dining and gathering spaces their goal is to be responsive to their client, the context, the community and the environment. They specialize in design and location challenges that require extra attention and careful planning. Over the course of two summers, I worked in the offices at Johannas Design Group in Richmond, Virginia. While there, I worked on schematic designs, produced existing elevations and plans for buildings to be renovated, took part in site visits, produced presentation materials and participated in client meetings.

Lynx Ventures specializes in the development and management of multi-family properties, commercial spaces, medical facilities, and affordable housing where each and every project they undertake has a significant impact on the social and economic vibrancy of a community. At Lynx, they pride themselves on investing in projects that don’t just cosmetically transform communities, but those that create sustained economic and social opportunities for its residents. Thier focus is on projects that have potential for significant impact on a community. Using Mapbox, ArcGIS Online, Illustrator, and InDesign, I created and edited interactive maps of the company’s properties and amenities. Furthemore, I conceptualized an aesthetic mode based on the company’s branding and style guides.

Graphic Design Works

At the Univeristy of Virginia football recruiting department, I created a broad range of work using various design techniques. Using programs such as Photoshop, InDesign, and Bridge, I created images and layouts for print and digital mediums. For over two years, I developed print materials such as brochures, banners and mailers and digital materials mainly for distribution over social media. Furthemore, I conceptualized and developed graphics products for recruiting, key events, and invitational activities.

I employed design fundamentals when selecting typography, composition, layout and color in design work based on a graphic design guide. Based on the visual guide, I maintained consistent use of graphic imagery in materials and other marketing outreach pieces. Formatting text and graphics for online materials, I designed new on-brand visual elements to effectively convey concepts and messaging. Similarly, I designed art and copy layouts for direct mail advertising material.

Existing Building Studies

Through the study of existing buildings, lessons learned in both spatial uses and computer drafting lead to a understanding of the space in a new way. 3018 Floyd Avenue, a row house in the Museum District of Richmond, Virginia was examined as a dwelling unit for three people and a dog, Sadie. An axonometric drawing accompanied by a plan and section are used as devices to examine the use of spaces in two regions of the house -- the front of the house and the first floor. A further examination to how the house works in a system of similar houses reveals how the houses are repeated in plan but greatly varies in facade. The elevations of the downtown mall in Charlottesville, Virginia examined the distribution of different commercial entities along a urban strip. The heights and vernacular were later used to influence design moves in later projects.

University Hall at the Univeristy of Virginia, examined in its final years before being demolished, was modeled in Rhino 6 and rendered using V-Ray. Written about by UVAToday and the School of Architecture in further detail, the works were produced as a way to shape a new era for the project – one of a digital reality. The focus of the project was significantly influenced by the interior as its details carried much of the spirit of the building during its consturction and early life. Using the original blueprints and some photos of the building taken during a site visit, a computer model of the arena in University Hall was formed by recreating three dimensional geometries of the space (down to the seat number). After the model’s construction, V-Ray was used to understand the material and lighting components of the space.
