of land a mediator connection between two vineyards fourth year spring 2010 blacksburg, virginia overview:

A semester project to design a research facility to support the growing wine industry on a site straddling a major interstate. The university is interested in a facility that embodies adequately the research and innovation spirit of a land-grant university.

program:

8,000 square feet of tempered operation space, 7,000 square feet of tempered storage in addition to a research lab, office space, primary fermentation, secondary fermentation, bottling, tasting room and gift shop.

Bisected by a busy interstate, two components of a research winery form a visual and physical connection of a vineyard. The research winery suggests both a new gateway and a new link between student residences and the majority of academic buildings.

of of land a mediator measure topography fourth year fall 2009 blacksburg, virginia overview:

A four week project to delineate a room and a garden. The physical and cultural context of the specific site is a primary consideration.

program:

A room and a garden in an architectural relationship set somewhere within the town of Blacksburg. The selection of site challenged the understanding of site and interpretation of the landscape.

concept:

A structure placed within a garden at the base of the site becomes a visual and experiential measure of the change in topography of the site.

of land a mediator threshold between university and town fourth year fall 2009 blacksburg, virginia overview:

An eight week project situates a gallery for Virginia Tech within the existing town and campus fabric of Blacksburg, Virginia.

program:

The program asked for a gallery within an existing parking lot at the corner of Otey and Roanoke Street, retaining an existing tree. The gallery includes permanent and temporary exhibition space, an outdoor sculpture court, storage for art work, and necessary support spaces.

concept:

A demarcation of the corner of Roanoke and Otey Street reroutes pedestrians from campus to downtown. In passing, the building offers pedestrians a view of art within.

of land a mediator transition from land to water third year spring 2009 riva san vitale, switzerland overview:

A twelve week semester project within the residency abroad program in Riva San Vitale, Switzerland. The project challenges the question of a transition from terra firma to acqua.

program:

A boat stop to serve the existing network operated by La Società Navigazione del Lago di Lugano for the town of Riva. The port promotes accessibility to Riva’s two important monuments, the Battistero and Santa Croce while also providing an espresso bar at the station between land and water.

concept:

As a mediator between land and water, the design engages the threshold by extending the urban plaza into the water; a fluid movement through the space culminates in a room with precisely framed views of land and water.

of between land a mediator mediator landscape typologies third year fall 2008 blacksburg, virginia overview:

Winning entry in a ten day competition to develop a building at the intersection of three different landscape typologies within the boundaries of a site overlooking Virginia Tech’s stone quarry.

program:

Four programmatic elements (detonation tower, reading room, specimen drying shed, and outdoor workspace) suggest a range of structural and material responses, degrees of enclosure, and relationships to the site.

concept:

A unifying structure studied of programmatic elements acts as a natural mediator between the suburban and industrial constructs of the site; a ‘natural billboard’ creates transparency with the environment.

of land a natural and artificial landscape a mediator line between third year fall 2008 bryson city, north carolina overview:

A study of tension created between the artificial and natural at a site in the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina.

program:

The program evaluated the historic nature of the site to create a program in response including a place of shelter, reflection, and story telling.

concept:

A linear building placed at the line between an artificial and natural landscape allows visitors to learn about the landscape and its layers of history. A path through the structure is subtly disjointed forcing the visitor to wander and explore the different complexities of the site.

a joint between two materials first year spring 2007 blacksburg, virginia overview:

a semester project to design an infant toy with multiple means of interaction. Packaging was developed in relation to the design of the toy.

concept:

Two varieties of wood, ipe and white oak, intersect to form a joint. A void is created within the white oak in order for copper spheres to be inserted. The spheres create a rattling sound while further lightening the white oak. The juxtaposition between each allows the object to roll.
