FINAL DESIGN CONCEPT

The Focus

The Sidewinder

Liberty Street

This design was created for a space where a parking garage had been torn down. It lays between residential areas of the city and George Street; the center of activity in New Brunswick. The physical challenge of this site was the 8% grade and achieving ADA compliance in a comfortable manner.

Bayon

New Jersey is one of the states that will be most affected by climate disruption. This project involved creating a system that would protect Bayonne Colf Club and Constable Hook from future storm damage. This, in turn, would protect the city Bayonne and its residents from extreme weather events. Our team decided on an artificial Island with revetments to protect it from the strongest surges as well as provide much needed greenspace on the east side of Bayonne.

Native Biodiversity In addition to protecting Bayonne from sea level rise and storm surge, the new space could serve as a wildlife rest stop on the Atlantic Flyway. Our team worked to create as many different habitat spaces for coastal birds of concern in New Jersey as well as their prey.

Part of creating habitat in Bayonne that the birds using the Atlantic Flyway will know how to use is understanding how plant species changing over the intertidal zone up into the maritime forest. Plant species were chosen based on their success in the habitat zones we were looking to create.

MONUMENTS FOR THE PASSAIC:

Group Inventory and Analysis

Location: Passaic River, New Jersey Type: Regional Inventory and Analysis Size: 87 Miles Time Frame: Second Year, First Semester (10 weeks) Involvement: Group Work

TOPOGRAPHY AND WATER - Individual Contribution, John Hayton, Mouli Luo, Brady Smith, Sam Ferrara, and Anna Erickson Computer rendered: topography, ArcGIS and Illustrator Hand rendered: water, pencil

This project involved studying the Passaic River both with large scale inventory and analysis efforts as well as historical literature exploration. The river starts up in the Highlands and weaves its way down over the Paterson Great Falls and through the post glacial landscape to Newark Bay.

MONUMENTS FOR THE PASSAIC:

CHATHAM TOWNSHIP REPRESENTATIONS Computer rendered ArcGIS and Illustrator

Into the Drumlin Country Location: Chatham Township Right of Way, New Jersey Type: Public Park Site Design Size: 2 Square Miles Time Frame: Second Year, First Semester (5 weeks) Involvement: Individual Work My design was inspired by the glacial history of the Passaic River and the Great Swamp Wildlife Refuge. I wanted to reveal the past by creating a path system that was inspired by the cyclical nature of glacials and interglacials; interacting with landforms inspired by drumlins. In this way, I looked to create a stronger, more interesting physical and historical connection to the Great Swamp for the surrounding neighborhoods.

In this diagram, I show how the relationship between global temperature and glaciation has a particular rhythm that led to the concept of the path.

ECOTONE SECTION OVER TIME Computer rendered AutoCAD, Illustrator, and Photoshop As maintenance is a challenge in powerline corridors, I do not advocate for implementation of trees in the center of the corridor. My design looks to soften the edge as well as include native plants to better support the Great Swamp Wildlife Refuge. 17

RUTGERS UNIVERSITY FLORICULTURE GREENHOUSE Location: New Brunswick, New Jersey Type: Small Commercial Site Design Size: 1/4 Acre Time Frame: Second Year, First Semester (6 weeks) Involvement: Individual Work This grading plan was to address the dainage issues of the greenhouse. These included accounting for the roof, the compacted soiling, the negative drainage, and the failing rain garden.

PHOTO JOURNALING Photography is my way of journaling my experience in the landscape. For me, this is not just a method of site capture but a method of learning about movement, light, and color in four dimensions.
