The Village of Peotone, Illinois has a unique opportunity to use the implementation of a new High Speed Rail Station and a new Airport located to the northeast, to evolve and essentially become a transportation hub south of Chicago. The site, located on the southern edge of Peotone Road between, Interstate 57 and Route 50, the station will act as a Gateway into this evolving transportation hub. A curvilinear form with a transparent skin symbolizes the new wave of technology and change from a village to one day, a city. Extending arms to both I-57 and Route 50, the building acts as the glue for all of the modes of transportation, creating a sense of arrival when passing by. The canopy will juxtapose the station by intersection, but will not interrupt the flowing facades, ultimately marrying the people and the train. Creating an exoskeleton structure allows for a dynamic look as to how the building stands up, while the regularity of the portal frames help guide you through the spaces. The building was also designed to “float� giving an overall sense of weightlessness. Site Plan

Wolf Point has an established ground plane 24’-0” below West Mart Drive creating a strong disconnect. The design aims to connect city (people) and the site, by establishing a pedestrian ground plane equivalent to West Mart Drive that acts as an experiential and transitional space.

The lower building, a museum, anchors the project possessing geometries formed from site specific grids. The floating building, is the advertising agency which used a series of view studies to create a form, connected to downtown Chicago, but juxtaposes the geometries of Wolf Point. The project as a whole attempts to entrench itself into the site and create a new, dynamic series of spaces (interior and exterior) that alter how Wolf Point is currently viewed. The project also challenges what the appropriate typology is thought to be, by refuting the high rise mindset. Site Plan

Modern society is technology-driven and at a disconnect to the environment. The goal of this project was to recalibrate one’s mind away from 21st century technology back to the environment. The transparent design aims to remove physical boundaries and creates a more intimate relationship with the surrounding context. The project was elevated to minimize the impact on the forest bottom, which also allows for the living space to integrate itself amongst the trees.

Garfield Boulevard between Prairie Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard is an isolated zone sandwiched between the CTA green Line and Washington Park. Though the University of Chicago has acquired much of this territory, they will not complete its development for possibly up to thirty years, thus leaving a large, poorly defined, and unprogrammed landscape in the heart of Washington Park neighborhood across which the public must continue to connect. The design intends to extend Washington Park westward to Prairie Avenue, converting Garfield Boulevard into a twoway transit lane and moving mass vehicular traffic to the peripheries of the site resulting in a pedestrian friendly area. A cohesive network formed by the existing context, revitalizes the connection between the CTA Green Line, Washington Park and the University of Chicago. A distinct language, established by unique geometries, allow for the integration of a new program (grocery, dining, recreation, university and performance based) which are supported and enhance by a contemporary landscape strategy.
