MUSEUM OF APPALACHIAN FOODWAYS W. Jackson Corridor | Knoxville, TN Architecture 572 - Fall 2012 Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD and Adobe Suite This project, designed for an integrations studio, began with the charge to design a m useu m and education space intended to s h o w c a s e a t y p e o f m a k in g a n d c r a f t. Choosing to focus on foodways created the opportunity to place the museum’s cafe space in a position that would activate pedestrian traffic between the site’s lower parking level and upper street level. Historic imagery of vessels assembled en masse in department stores provided inspiration for th e prim ar y display m eth o d. With th ese decisions in place, I designed a layered facade system creating a vitrine for the vessels, with an outer layer of stoneware tiles to both frame the objects and provide screening from sun exposure, while still allowing natural light to enter the outer display space.

PREFABRICATED ALUMINUM HOUSE Proposed Site | Alcoa, TN Architecture 571 - Fall 2011 Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD and Adobe Suite Through the use of prefabrication, a home ought to survive years of use, allowing for adaptability, while still creating a sense of permanence. With restrooms, an office, kitchen and storage contained within the service bar in this design, the various modules allow for use by a young family (2BR), a multi-genertional family (2 BR+in-law Suite or 3BR+in-la w Suite), or a larg e fa mily (4 BR). The addition of several energy efficient systems, to harvest energy from heat, solar power, and moving ground air help to ensure that this home will remain useful for multiple generations.

CENTER FOR PROFESSIONAL ETHICS Emory University | Atlanta, GA Architecture 542 - Spring 2011 AutoCAD, Google SketchUp and Adobe Suite In response to this project’s program, a university center for the study of ethics, I chose to center my design on the concept that e t h ic s r e m a i n c o n s t a n t a n d w e m u s t c h o o s e h o w t o n a v ig a t e around them. Architecturally, this translates as the quad taking on the constant nature of ethics, continuing across the site as an even plane while more complex program occupies the lower level. This treatment respects the presence of the existing Paul Rudolph chapel at the rear of the site, using its iconic bridge as a means of dividing the site and fra ming the prim ar y interior circulation. In addition, the division of the site frames a new gathering space for students as well as private gardens for the residences provided for visiting scholars.

OFFICE OF THE UNIVERSITY ARCHITECT Emory University | Atlanta, GA Architecture 542 - Spring 2011 AutoCAD, Google SketchUp and Adobe Suite Faced with the challenges of a small program and a very prominent location on the Emory quad, this project called for the creation o f o f f ic e s a n d e x h ib it s p a c e f o r t h e university architect. My solution to this problem began with an interest in how the arch can act both as an object and a space definer, creating a dialogue betweeen the importance of its mass and the void which it frames. Ultimately , this design allows for continued passage through the site while creating a ne w land m ark that d oes n ot compete with its historic setting.

CONCESSIONS BUILDING - A2H My involvement with this project began early in the design development phase. Building on previous decisions regarding massing and materiality, my work involved manipulation of grids, design details, material selection, and coordination with engineers on the building’s systems and structure. Working with structural engineers, I helped to design a system that allowed for light fixtures to nestle within the beams on the building’s north elevation and make use of reflection from the white ceiling above. In addition, I generated the architectural construction drawings using Autodesk Revit and assisted in compiling specifications.


BIM MODELING - A2H W hile w o r k in g at A 2H, I g e n e rate d BIM models of existing conditions and proposed changes for several projects. The project shown on this page called for documentation of the existing facility for a youth camp and its proposed addition. The rendering on the opposite page shows the existing conditions of a government building located in d o w n t o w n M e m p his in n e e d o f f a c a d e a d a p t a t io n f ollo w in g t h e r e m o v al o f a previously extant aluminum screening system.

BASSWOOD MODELING The models shown here were produced for studios throughout my time at The University of Tennessee. The examples on this page were cut by hand while those on the opposite page were made with of a combination of handwork and laser-cut pieces. Material choice and craft were carefully considered when designing these models, searching for a balance between accurate representation and necessary abstraction.

PERSONAL PROJECTS The cards shown here were produced for major events in my own life, as well as those of family and friends. Although each has its own specific aesthetic, together they represent an attempt to create interest and convey important information while maintaining a sense of simplicity.

CONSTRUCTED DRAWINGS The drawings presented here each make use of different methods and media to enhance constructed hand drawings. Methods used include chemical transfer with overlayed montage (top left, opposite page), graphite rendering (botto m left, opposite page), Adobe Photoshop rendering (bottom right, oppposite page), and spraypaint on mylar (this page).

SKETCHING Exextued graphite sketches graduate produced

in a mix of media ranging from pencil to vine charcoal , these are products of undergraduate and coursework, as well as personal work during breaks from school.


GRAPHITE DRAWINGS The drawings shown here are products of my first summer as a graduate student at The University of Tennessee. As a compliment to my introductory studio, I participated in a representation course that focused on freehand drawing in graphite. Completion of these drawings strengthened my skills in representation, as well as my understanding of contrast and composition.
