_01 PATTERN VARIANCES 3rd Year | 2-week Charrette | Crossville Tile Inc. Sponsored Studio


PROJECT STATEMENT: As a preface to the design for a MicroSchool, this charrette challenged the idea of the traditional 2 dimesnional patterning system. The first challenge the project presented was creating a performative pattern incorporating tile to aid in reinventing the learning machine. This studio is sponsored by Crossvile Tile, so learning more about this material is key to creating a unique space. PROJECT SOLUTION: After contrasting the modularity of tile with the fluctuation of topographies, the areas of intersection became an area of study. Combining layers of dierent materials, the resulting pattern has areas of intersection and complexity that aim to guide movement throughout the MiroSchool as the project develops.

A student’s movement through the space will be guided by the patterning system. Areas of modularity are to be quickly passed through, while topographic elements create a moment of pause as one travels through the space. The functionality of the system is also a consideration for how the students will interact with it.

_02 ARTIST IN RESIDENCE 2nd Year | Residential | Knoxville, TN Group memebers: Emma Kate Chambless, Morrigan Garrett


14


PROJECT STATEMENT: In an effort to support the artistic community in South Knoxville, The Marble Candoro building was to be re-imagined as an artist in residence. Also on the site was to be an adjacent gallery and makers’ space for local artists to come and collaborate on works in their particular interests. The local art community should view this as a space to come together and engage with each other. PROJECT SOLUTION: Inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett’s novel, The Secret Garden, this space provides individuals with a connection to the outdoors, and a sense of exploration and curiosity as they travel through the space. To counteract the landscape, the design aims to respect the design elements in the Beau-Arts style by utilizing symmetry and classic simplicity. 15


Western Red Cedar Wood

Concrete

Alabama White Marble

This wood is very colorful and durable, especially in areas of high moisture, which makes it ideal for its use in the sauna.

The goal of this project was to use all natural materials, so concrete was incorporated to represent the industrial nature of the site.

Marble was the main material in this project as we were renovating the old showroom for Candoro Marble. The stone specified is quarried locally at Tennessee Marble Co.

The upper level housing both the residence and gallery will be divided into three spaces to preserve the same axis the alley of trees leading to the building creates. Inside, the lines between public and private will be blurred through an intermediate middle layer of space, visible from both sides, private and public.

_03 THE AVIARY 2nd Year | Restaurant | Knoxville, TN


22


PROJECT STATEMENT: To create a third home for Chinese immagrants in Knoxville, the study of chinese textiles and traditional eating customs became the frame for The Aviary. The site for the restaraunt was in the heart of North Knoxville, an area currently being revitalized through the work of local architects. The Aviary aims to be a place for immigrants and locals to experience together. PROJECT SOLUTION: In Chinese tradition, meals are typically eaten privately with close family. To keep with this tradition, individuals enter The Aviary and experience increasing levels of enclosure. The final result is a private table with a curtain to be opened and closed, a physical barrier between guests and the rest of the space.

As individuals reach their table, they will pass private tables with their curtains drawn, and once they occupy their table, they will be able to close their curtain to keep their dining experience more private.

_04 SYNTHETIC TOPOGRAPHIES 3rd Year | Office Design | Knoxville, TN


30


PROJECT STATEMENT: The objective of this project was to design a space for Annapurna Films to have their creative oďŹƒce in downtown Knoxville. After studying bioluminescent organisms, the structure and characteristics of the animal were to be utilized in making a space for creativity and innovation in the making of film and various forms of media.

PROJECTION SOLUTION: Inspired by the dinoflagellate, a biolumescent organism that survives based on its strength in community, the space revolves around a central core that houses community spaces. Each floor has a diverse spacial program, to keep people moving throughout the day which enhances their sense of discovery as they navigate the building. 31


One of the goals of the project was to provide spaces for collaboration and creativity. An ideation space like the one above allows for groups of all sizes. The space has floor to ceiling ideation walls and movable furniture, and the perimeter circulation allows for individuals passing by to be involved in these think tanks as well.

Studio spaces provide not only individual work stations but also adjacent concept development areas for groups. These provide tables, wall space for ideas, as well as large monitors and seating to review film and various types of media in progress.

The central sculptural core of the building serves as the main circulation throughout the space encouraging individuals to all utilize the piece and ,therefore, bringing people together. The core on the first floor serves as a formal theater with a vaulted ceiling that then becomes a large mezzanine-like community gathering space. This is open to all levels of the building and serves as a center for communication and collaboration for all that utilize it.
