BACKGROUND In August of 2017 the Spencer County Extension Office reached out to the University of Kentucky Landscape Architecture Department and Community and Economic Development Initiative of Kentucky to design landscape improvements within their property boundary in Taylorsville, Kentucky. This newer facility has the opportunity to create walking connections through an expanded design project that includes the nearby schools and the developing subdivision. This systematic plan will contribute to a higher quality of life for this growing community. I viewed the existing condition, soils, hydrology, slope, elevation, context and connections of the site. Understanding how each one of these topics correlates to one another will influence the buildability of the soil, the trees and planting locations, each conceptual idea and the overall illustrative design.

DOROTHA SMITH OATTS V ISITOR CENTER EXPANSION ACADEMIC JUNIOR PROJECT - CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION YEAR - SPRING 2017 SITE - THE ARBORETUM, STATE BOTANICAL GARDEN OF KENTUCKY / LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY

BACKGROUND The Dorotha Smith Oatts Visitor Center Expansion was proposed by De Leon & Primmer. Our intent was to capitalize on surrounding views of the arboretum, celebrate the native plants in Kentucky, and create a unique and safe enviornment for visitors of all ages. My design expands off the visitors center following the building lines with a formal garden, stimulating the senses with views, color arrangements and aromatic plantings. Off the walkway is a childrens naturescape maze with sandbox, and a recreational field to the left.

The overall concept and schematic design of the Dorotha Smith Oatts Visitor Center is of formal design. It is the formal landscape emulating the french hard lines and designs. In developing my intent for the arboretum I encountered a few constraints. Those being the existing grade of the site, trying to use and keep existing pathways by continueing to tye them into design, and based on proposed visitor center plans; working to enhance viewsheds.

2-4 GUNN SQUARE D ESIGN ACADEMIC JUNIOR PROJECT - RESIDENTIAL DESIGN YEAR - FALL 2016 SITE - 2-4 GUNN SQUARE PARCEL / SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS

BACKGROUND DevelopSpringfield is a company that has acquired the historic Gunn Block (corner of State and Walnut Streets) for redevelopment in April 2013. The Gunn Block Redevelopment is a bricks and mortar economic development initiative that will create jobs and market rate housing, reduce blight, and promote private investment in the Old Hill/Six corners neighborhood that was built around 1830. The master plan resembles the planting layout and cleanliness design of the Victorian period landscapes. To the northern right corner of the master plan is a social gathering that will accomodate approximately 15-people. The second space located at the southern right corner is a secluded sitting and reflecting space off the social space. It is designed with the thought of being solemn, and contemplative. The landscape layout was influenced by both Thomas Church and Dan Kiley for their residential designs. 109'-0"

CREATIVE PROCESS Creating these images involved the use of multiple programs and importing or carrying over the created files into another program. I started this design by developing my hard lines in Auto CAD, then used Land F/X to place my plantings. I then imported this file into SketchUp to start the development of the design. Once satisfied with this programs offering I transferred this file into Lumion to polish it up and give it a more realistic feel.

IMPROVEMENT FOR MOVEMENT IN PRINCETON ACADEMIC JUNIOR PROJECT - URBAN DESIGN & PLANNING (TEAM OF TWO) YEAR - FALL 2016 SITE - THE CITY OF PRINCETON, KENTUCKY / PREINCETON, KENTUCKY

BACKGROUND Parks and public space planning can be site specific or extended to be included into systems such as trails and greenway systems that have similar goals and objectives for public use. This systematic planning aims to effectively connect places and provide recreational, social, educational and healthy activity opportunities for users, residents and visitors. Some in-direct outcomes of parks and public space planning can further benefit or have the potential for communities to explore community and economic development activities. DOWNTOWN PRINCETON The purpose of this design was to connect the rural community with a series of trails. My teammate Beck and I focused on four trails for our system, that gives residents a means of safe travel without a vehicle. These trails are pedestrian trails, creek trails, railroad trails, and the horseback trails. Using waypoints, signage, and colored pavers to indicate trails, this sytem connects Princeton and has the future opportunity in connecting other cities by trail. Improvement for Movement Princeton is in the need for an improvement of movement, and a call to action. This is an initiative, a calling, and a challenge to Princeton residents to come together and bring about this change. This design encompasses the whole city of Princeton with interconnectivity in trails. It is a sustainable and alternative way of travel, and has the potential to increase the economy and economic development.

ABOUT ME

CONTACT

PERSONAL LIFE

I am thrity-four years old, happily married to my wife of fourteen years, and have five children. After high School I joined the US Army, served seven years on active-duty and now eight years in the Army reserves. I am currently a drill sergeant in the Army and I have served twenty-seven months overseas, making me a two-time combat veteran. I enlisted into this field knowing I would get the opportunity to mold the landscape positively for myself and future generations. I would love to find a job that will guide me on the right path for a successful and rewarding career. Showing my keen eye for attention to detail and area beautification. I grew up helping my father on the farm in Michigan, and have seen differing landscapes across the world. I feel this gives me exemplary foundational skills and proves my desire to learn and adapt.

HOBBIES AND INTERESTS

I enjoy spending time with the family, we go hiking, running, travel, visit museums all over the United States, play board games, eat, and I like to take photos every now and again. These family adventures has helped appreciate and experience the space. I do my best to implement that understanding into my architectural works.
