EUGENE AFFORDABLE HOUSING OLIVE STREET BETWEEN 15TH & 16TH, EUGENE OR STUDIO: FALL 2016 - YEAR TWO M.ARCH ADVISING PROFESSOR: VAL GLITSCH SITE LOCATION: EUGENE, OREGON COLLABORATED WITH: ZHENGXIAN JIN Located in an R4 high-density, residential neighborhood, this housing complex provides a unique housing design while maintaining affordability. A singular unit plan with an optional bedroom/study extension is repeated in an organized manner, offering a total of 41 units along with 24 parking spaces and ample bicycle storage. Community courtyards are anchored by four housing complexes on each corner of the site, generating connectivity and security. A community room centers the site, encouraging neighborhood synergy, while also providing a sense of separation between the courtyards. Overlapping circulation paths encourage interaction between residents while also integrating a number of ecological sustainability measures. Finally, a redesigned Amazon Creek winds through the center of the site, providing a sense of tranquility and peace.

Wetlands have historically played an important role in the natural ecology of the Willamette Valley. Many plants and animals rely on the diverse environment that these wetlands provide. The wetlands also work to clean stormwater and reduce the impact of regional flooding. As local development encroaches, an increased importance has been placed on maintaining, restoring, and preserving these important wetland habitats. Situated overlooking the Willamette Valley wetlands, the Eugene Wetlands Center is focused on wetland preservation through educational engagement, laboratory research, indoor and outdoor classroom sessions, community service events, and advocacy meetings.

POP ECOLOGY WOOD // WATER // WARHOL STUDIO: SPRING 2016 - YEAR ONE M.ARCH ADVISING PROFESSOR: JUDITH SHEINE & MARK DONOFRIO SITE LOCATION: LOWER EAST SIDE MANHATTAN, NEW YORK COLLABORATED WITH: ANDREW LOIA, ERIK BARTH, CASEY WILLIAMS This project demonstrates how cities can become vibrant ecosystems by altering traditional building systems in innovative ways, much how Andy Warhol transformed ordinary objects into art with extraordinary meaning. Human-induced environmental degradation is a major global issue. Natural resource consumption linked to unsustainable global production induces climate change, social injustice, and widespread pollution. We envision the Lower East Side of Manhattan as a canvas to create a unique development that demonstrates a reversal of negative global processes in an urban context by exposing, embracing, and celebrating natural ecological patterns through the use of wood, water, and the philosophy of Andy Warhol.

BUILDING ENCLOSURES PROJECT 2 Project 2 of Building Enclosures focused on detail drawings for the Tykeson Hall Commons on the University of Oregon campus. The area of study chosen for detailing included a curtain wall as well as an alternating wall system with brick panels and storefront windows. The primary structure is concrete columns carrying post-tensioned concrete floor slabs. A secondary steel-stud wall structure was used to carry the weight of the facade system. Additionally, a green roof was designed above the 2-story curtain wall system.

material study of heavy vs. light

october

DECONSTRUCTED BOX

The goal of this project was to study how the addition of materiality affects design.

This project was completed during a studio course at the University of Utah. The goal of the project was to examine the deconstruction of a box using a series of systematic moves. Materiality was introduced to observe its effect on the design comprehension. Wood was chosen for its inherent beauty when exposed to light and also to explore the challenge of constructing specific angles and curves with a rigid material. I used one of my previous-

ly constructed 3” x 3” cubes

and transformed it into a 9” x 9” cube, using wood as the

material. I chose to use wood for its inherent beauty when exposed to light and also to

explore the challenge of constructing specific angles and curves with a rigid material.

CABIN DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION Construction has always been a hobby. After my senior year of high school, I decided to independently construct a small mountainside cabin. The construction process included selecting a location, making a rough sketch of the cabin, digging and pouring footings, setting and aligning support posts, installing floor and ceiling joists and rafters, framing wall openings for windows and doors collected at a salvage yard, installing siding, shingling, and painting. The cabin was constructed on an approximate 30-degree slope in Emigration Canyon, Salt Lake City UT. I had no detailed plans and as a result almost all of the construction process was developed as the project unfolded. The final cabin dimensions are an 8’ x 8’ interior with a 10’ ceiling and a 2’ x 8’ porch on the front.
