Hello! My name is Elise Kennedy and I am a senior student currently studying at the University of Cincinnati School of Architecture and Interior Design anticipating graduation in May 2020. I’ve been interested in architecture ever since I was young and my curiosity only grows as learn more about the field. I am an enthusiast for community based design especially in service of the public due to my belief that architecture can affect change and should benefit those who experience it. I’m looking forward to what my combined passion for architecture and learning will reward me in any of my future experiences. The following is a curated collection of my architectural and design academic, professional and personal work that reflects my passion for creation and ambition to convert that concept into tangible meaningful content.

GREENHILLS HOUSING Design Lab Studio | Spring 2019

This mass housing project is located in the historic Greenhills, Ohio one of the original greenbelt towns it is aimed to capitalize on what made Greenhills unique. The concept looks at bringing the element of greenspace of different types and scales to build a prototype of what Greenhills could be by crossing the program of more dense housing with that of natural growth and food production. The smallest scale is that of the unit; taking on the form of a greenhouse the occupant benefits from the integrated nature and productive capabilities. Then the concept moves up in scale both in living and greenspace by creating aggregate clusters of units that slot and stack on top of one another co dependently. The interior of the unit’s greenspace is joined creating social adjacencies as well as productivity benefits. Within these clusters is a shared exterior garden a larger scale of greenery and production that is made more manageable with shared responsibility. The transition space between the clusters is treated as a shared yard similar to the existing plan of Greenhills but with additive purpose with a large-scale food production center in the form of an orchard. The orchard has shared access with the whole community and acts as a center for trade or gathering while also providing for privacy across the center of clusters.

ROMANIAN ACADEMY Travel Studio | Fall 2019

This Romanian Academy is located in the capital city Bucharest, Romania along the main street Calea Victoriei, activating a cultural center with academic intentions. Design began with investigation of totemic elements of existing Romanian stairs that were documented in a series of drawings. These drawings were then combined, scaled, and warped to declassify the stairs into other architectural meaning. With focus on moments from these investigative drawings a methodology for building form was created. The overall form of the building is made up of six stepped profiles or slices that imply the use of stair rise/run in the general sense of extrusion. The thickness of the poche of each slice houses and informs the dimension of program and the connection that occurs internally. The void of the slices is conditioned simultaneously as circulation and as a psuedo gallery space for display and movement. The modified versions of the original staircase precedents are used to stitch and circulate from slice to slice. For large programs the volume of the space occupied straddles multiple slices hiding out in and filling the figurative coinciding poche of the slices. This cross program is cushioned by the smaller support spaces housed in singular slice instances.

ROWING FACILITY Design Lab Studio | Summer 2018

This Rowing Facility is located on the banks of the Licking River that branches off the Ohio River. The levy and riverbank site lends itself to a terraced massing. To take advantage of naturally stepping landscape from the top of the levy to bottom of levy to the riverbank, two folded plate forms were inserted into the landscape. The form is derived from the movements of body parts as a person rows combined with folding techniques. They are inserted into the riverbank and levy to create programmatic exterior and interior spaces. The lower level is used for boat storage and boat transportation to the river. The upper level is used for training both on the exterior terrace and machines inside. The topography is manipulated where the river bank meets the large stepping down docks. The intended effect is as the water level of the river rises the space under the docks fills. As the water rises the docks flood and the rowers can use the next dock up to submerge and board their boats.

FOSSIL PARK Design Lab Studio | Summer 2018

Trammel Fossil Park is located north of Cincinnati along the archaeological Cincinnati Arch. The Arch climbs north through Kentucky and splits Ohio. The form and shape of the building is driven by the arch at a site scale. Further investigation of the site led to the idea that the process of how a fossil is formed can be mimicked by the construction of a building. Soft tissue of organisms decays and carbonizes. Forms mold and cast. This led to the idea of the hard shell and softer inside fabric pulled over a skeletal frame. Circulation occurs on the outer corridors as to force the user to experience and confront the difference of the hard shell and soft interior. One branch of the building cuts into the site while the topography cuts into the other branch. The dug in private space is used for conference rooms and offices while the more open and exposed to the hill space is occupied by the gallery.

ROCKING CHAIR Furniture Design | Spring 2019

The basis of the seminar was to produce phased physical prototypes to emphasize the importance of simultaneous drawing and making and to generate a deeper understanding of the use of materials, and fabrication techniques. These iterations evolved into the final prototype; a simple profile layered multiple times to create a thickened profile that would eventually add up to the seat and back of the chair. The layered and laminated nature allows for a subtle curvature of the back, seat pan, and angle of legs to accommodate the human form. A single sheet of baltic birch plywood was cut on a cnc router to get the specific profiles required. Those profiles were then connected internally with dowel joinery - first in groups then as a whole.

ISSAQUAH ELEMENTARY | Summer 2019

Issaquah Elementary is the project that I worked on during my time at Bassetti Architects. The project is located in Issaquah, WA sharing a site with a new High School, athletic, and parking facilities. The elementary school proposed is 73,000 square feet including 23 classrooms, cafeteria and kitchen, gymnasium, library, music classroom, administration, and support spaces. I helped design options for small portions of the building including areas such as the canopy entrances, covered play areas, and lobby area. I also worked on the completion of Design Development Set alongside a team of people. My assigned focus was on the ceiling plans, roof plans, building sections, and interior and special openings details. Revit was used for the process of set drawings and a combination of Enscape, hand drafting, and Photoshop were used in the making and presentation of design options. Rendering by Bassetti Architects.

GROCERY STORE | Spring 2016

This project is one of the larger projects I worked on during my time at Chute Gerdeman. It is a gourmet Grocery Store located in the Dominican Republic. Shown to the right is the Furniture Fixtures and Equipment plan illustrating the general layout and custom fixture placement. I worked on the production of the full set of Design Intent drawings including all plans, elevations and details with an emphasis on fixture details. When modeling the fixtures I worked in tandem with other designers, often modeling and detailing fixtures based off of renderings, sketches and verbal descriptions. Renderings by Chute Gerdeman.

TRAVEL SKETCHES Study Abroad | Fall 2019

The following are a collection of sketches from my study abroad experience in the fall of 2019. The travel studio named Freespace focused on the observation and mediation of freespace vs. captivespace of our context through the study of totemic architectural elements of the city and beyond against the secular architectural elements of the city. Travel included Paris and LÊon, France; Prague, Czechia; Bucharest, Sinaia, Bran, Sighisoara, and Brasov, Romania; Barcelona, Spain. Sketches included are of the Barcelona Cathedral (Barcelona, Spain), Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain (Paris, France), Santa Caterina Market (Barcelona, Spain), Clock Tower (Sighisoara, Romania), and Castelul Pelisor (Sinaia, Romania).
