THE FUTURE OF WORK A BLEND OF PAST AND PRESENT Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania | Winter 2018 - Current Sustainable development integrates and balances the economical, ecological, and equality-based needs of communities. An imbalance, created by neglecting one or more of these frameworks, can dramatically upset the balance of the community ecosystem. This project examines how architecture can provide a framework for sustainable recovery and growth while simultaneously recognizing the past and embracing

the existing cultural dynamics. Similarly, this project focuses on a systematic development that erases constructed barriers, improving access to public resources by focusing on the unique aspects of these resources, as defined by the surrounding conditions and historical developments.

PORTLAND CULINARY INSTITUTE AN EDUCATIONAL JOURNEY Portland, OR | Winter 2017 Located on the corner of 8th Avenue and Couch Street across from the north park blocks, the Portland Culinary Institute provides a unique collaborative opportunity for students, staff, and visitors. Kitchens are stacked vertically along the southern edge of the building, providing mechanical system efficiency and numerous passive strategies that take advantage of kitchen heat. A central circulation atrium connects these kitchens to stacked classrooms, office spaces, and public services. This cetral atrium serves as the heart of the building, visually connecting different programmatic elements while also fostering interaction and communication. The Portland Culinary Institute welcomes and serves the surrounding public. Ground-level spaces such as the cafe and a culinary history gallery invite the public inside. From here, visitors are encouraged to partake in a unique “journey through the building,� observing the various student kitchens, offices, and classrooms. The central atrium guides visitors through this unique journey, leading them to the iconic restaurant and outdoor patio space situated on the top corner of the Portland Culinary Institute.

Floor Plans are organized to provide different needs. While the ground floor and top floor primarily serve the public, the middle floors serve the various needs of the students and staff. Floors 2.0 and 3.0 provide direct access to student kitchens and classrooms, along with intermediate study spaces within the atrium structure. Floors 2.1 and 3.1 are primarily staff office spaces, proving a layer of privacy and security.

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 New York City, NY | Spring 2016 Collaboration 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 extrordinary meaning. Human-induced environmental degradation is a major global issue. Natural resource consumption 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.

MAPLE BENCH DESIGN INSPIRED BY ROMAN BARBERINI TAPESTRIES Eugene, OR | Fall 2017 The design of my bench first gained inspiration from a discussion on the typical use of benches in a museum. Curators and visitors discussed the importance of having a bench that engaged users in multiple directions. My bench is designed to allow visitors to sit down and enjoy the gallery without defining the view. From here, inspiration was drawn from the Baroque Barberini tapestries on display in the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art on the University of Oregon campus. With a woven element integral to the connection between the bottom bracing and the top slabs, my bench takes direction from the looms used to weave the tapestries. The string stiches the elements of the bench together to form a cohesive whole, in a similar manner to that of the looms used to stich the tapestries together.

This is an actual design project in process in Eugene, OR. The project is for a local client looking to add an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) to their backyard. Design prompts for the project included a kitchen, living space, sauna, and sleeping loft. The client also requested the incorporation of passive features such as rainwater collection and solar panels. The ADU was incorporated with existing house functions such as the sewer line and the power lines.

The Oregon Timber Trail is a 670-mile bikepacking trail that winds its way from Northern Oregon and the Columbia River Gorge to Southern Oregon and the California border. Inspired by trails such as the Pacific Crest Trail, the Oregon Timber Trail is a biking trail designed to showcase the many diverse landscapes and ecosystems that Oregon has to offer. This project focused on the production of a field guide for the Oregon Timber Trail. The field guide is primarily comprised of a series of maps, developed using GIS resources, detailing the Willamette Tier of the Oregon Timber Trail. Interspersed between these maps are various trail highlights, offshoot trails along the main trail, hydrological information, and photos. The field guide was created as a marketing tool in an effort to encourage use on the newly completed trail.

BUILDING ENCLOSURES PROJECT ONE KARUNA PASSIVE HOUSE Yamhill County, OR | Fall 2016

Existing Window Panel Window Flashing Weather Resistant Barrier

This project focused on detail drawings for the Karuna Passive House outside of Portland, Oregon. Detail drawings focused primarily on typical passive house wood construction systems, examining thermal enclosure joints between the floor, wall, and roof. Details also focused on the integration of an exposed porch attached to the thermally enclosed structure of the Karuna House. With a primary structural system of steel columns carrying continuous glulam columns, details were developed that work around the thermal bridge of the glulam beam to maintain a passively enclosed system.

EXPLORER CABIN DESIGN-BUILD PROJECT Salt Lake City, UT | Summer 2015 Construction has always been a hobby. Following my senior year of high school, I decided to independently construct a small mountainside cabin located on a 30-degree slope in Emigration Canyon just outside of Salt Lake City, UT. With no detailed plans or experience, the construction process and design developed as the project unfolded. Following the selection of the site I dug and poured pier footings, set and aligned the support posts, installed floor joists, framed walls with openings for windows and doors collected at a local salvage yard, installed roof rafters, mounted siding and shingles, and painted the exterior to match the surrounding environment. The final cabin dimensions are an 8’ x 8’ interior with a 10’ ceiling and a 2’ x 8’ porch on the front side.
