AREA PLAN

LeDroit Park is a historic neighborhood in the downtown area of Washington, D.C. The current site is one of a former public school, whose removal left a vacant hole in the fabric of the community. Currently on site, there is a dog park, a community garden, and a playground, but none use the space effectively. The LeDroit Agricultural Center is a solution for this urban gap, filling the area with new housing developments as well as an agricultural center and a fully supported community garden space. A large event room comprises of the larger volume of the building, with smaller meeting and cafe spaces in the supporting wing. The building is designed with sustainability in mind, sporting features like photovoltaic arrays, LED lighting, and innovative water usage.

METRO TAP ROOM & MUSIC HALL Capstone Studio - Spring 2015 [ Illustrator / Photoshop / SketchUp / Welding ] The Cincinnati Subway system is one of the longest abandoned systems in the country, and has been abandoned for nearly 80 years. The Metro Taproom & Music Hall is a project that creates a new use for this underutilized space. One of the stations lies along the new Streetcar line, which makes it a highly accessible location in the vicinity of a popular nightlife area of the city. The new design is a craft-beer focused music venue that invokes the spirit of speakeasies and jazz clubs of the early 1900s. Bars situated in historic streetcars, as well as a large stage and dance floor, offer Cincinnati a unique music venue that recalls a forgotten piece of the Queen Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past. Lounges are built into the existing track bays to add a feeling of separation from the main space. The logo is inspired by the structural form of the station, as well as the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nickname and crown branding.

SEVENTY YEARS LATER: A PROJECT FOR OMAHA BEACH Bridge of Cultures / Foreign Studies Studio - Fall 2014 [ Hand Drawings / Photoshop / SketchUp / Maxwell Render ] 70 years ago, the Allied armies faced a fierce German opposition at the beaches of Normandy, France. This project site is located around the beach access path from the Normandy American Cemetery. The design is for a reflective space that does not revolve around the sacrifice of the battle. Focus is placed on rememberance, and celebration of what the Allied forces fought and died for - freedom. The design includes a footwash station and shelter that are constructed from common wartime and local materials. Fire slabs are scattered in the sand throughout the site, to emulate the placement of the barricades but reverse their purpose. These fire slabs create a place to gather and enjoy the freedom that comes with times of peace. The flame also invokes the spirit of the eternal flame, and reflects the life cycle, becoming a representation of the larger struggle between man and nature.

POOLHOUSE DESIGN Architecture Studio 2 - Summer 2013 [ Hand Drawings / Photoshop / SketchUp / Maxwell Render ] The purpose of the project was to study and excute a concept for the sequential design of a pool complex in Cincinnati. Located on a gently sloping area by a small river, the poolhouse is intended as a retreat from everyday life. In that way, the poohouse is separated from the road and parking lot. A bridge connects the pool complex via the river. The main organization element is the textured concrete wall that moves along the entire length of the site, maintaining a level top as the site slopes upward. Fuctions of the wall are explored in this project: cantilever, threshold, and support. There are areas where pools carry through the wall in their own threshold.

POSTERIZATION + COLOR STUDY Documentation lab - Spring 2012

[ Digital Photography / Graphite, Acrylic Paint / Photoshop 5.5 ] Exploration of color and shape of a building in Over-The-Rhine. Photograph was traced and scanned, and monochromatic color study was used to develop final hand-drawn, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;posterizedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; image on far right. A version with added tones is also included, and was completed with use of shades in the original photo. The original building is the italianate style typical of the neighborhood, with modern security equipment on the roof.

NEIGHBORHOOD DESIGN CENTER Personal Work - Baltimore and Columbus [ Hand Drawings / Photoshop / Rhino ] The NDC works to help underserved community business owners with architectural and graphic designs, and to improve neighborhood commercial districts. Bottom plan: Design for a cohesive connection of three separate buildings (6 images stiched together) in Columbus. The client requested a covered area for cars to park. Right, this page: Visioning study for a historic property on East Long Street in Columbus. The Theresa Building was recently restored, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places due to careful research. Far Right: The B&O Railroad is one of the most historic railroads in the United States. The Carey Street Underpass, located beneath the first mile of tracks of the original B&O Line. This portion of the project was to locate the original construction drawings of the bridge, and completing a restoration plan as the first phase of the project.

[ The Firebird - Scenic + Concept Designs ] The Firebrid is a ballet based on Russian folklore. It is set in an enchanted kingdom, with surreal, fairy-tale settings. Pictured are are two sets - the expansive forest, and evil King Katschei’s volcanic castle. The color scheme was balnced by the amount of “magic” invovled in the scene. Human charaters and the natural forest are shades of brown and green. The Firebird and the king’s castle are shades of red and orange. The driving factor is that magic was linked to fire in this world, which is emphasized this through my scenery.
