about

yourself

I am a 24-year-old transfer student from Rio Hondo College. Although I chose to take a non-traditional path to academics, I am very grateful for that decision. My years at a community college has shaped me academically to have an easy transfer to Cal Poly Pomona. Cal Poly Pomona has further enforced my academic curiosity to landscape architecture. My curiosity for landscape architecture and environmental design has grown over the course of my 4 years at Cal Poly Pomona. The field of landscape architecture is a vast multifaceted profession, so its hard to narrow down my passion into what I love about landscape architecture. However, I can tell you what I am passionate about now. Currently, I am very passionate about the role landscape architecture has in environmental justice. Environmental justice is a topic I wish to endeavor for the next 5 years or so. Specifically, in South L.A. I wish in the next 5 – 10 years for all of South L.A’s brownfields to be treated. I am an advocate for social equity for marginalized communities. I feel landscape architecture can not only help me advocate for what I believe in, but landscape architecture can also make me the catalyst for change. Landscape architecture has the capabilities of not only making complex rhetoric and beautiful spaces, but it has the capability to dismantle injustices in the world. It has the capabilities of fixing poverty and readjusting social structures for the better. Landscape architecture can and will be the solution for most political problems when it comes to the social environment. Although landscape for the longest time has had a huge role in sustainability, it is time for a new advocacy. It is time for social equity. I wish in my career to not only advocate for these issues but to make a change. It is something our world needs now. And Landscape architecture has the power to do that.

A campus design that considers Wuhan’s identity of “thousands lakes� and acknowledges the urban ecology that lies within the campus. This proposal contains several node connections that brings a new core in the middle of the campus which derives from a systematic based design. The main objective of this proposal was to provide an adaptive landscape that can adjust to cultural and weather shifts.

These are several techniques we proposed to deal with the excess flooding and water contamination that is existing in the site. We proposed a system of bio swales, gravity swales, and wetlands. The wetlands would use the technique to deal with water filtration. The water proposed in the canal is clean water provided by a pump and grey water. We proposed to clean ‘greywater’ in order to experience new various way to explore water.

An ecological driven design that dealt with dust mitigation, agriculture runoff, and tourist desolation. This design was aware with the current state of the salton sea. A once failed tourist destination, and now a site with a freakish and rich ecology. This proposal contains methods of algae remediation to deal with toxic contamination; and desalination pools, to deal with extreme salt conditions.

Abstract

The design was explorative in the sense that we were encourage to look at vast syste intangible in landscape architecture. We explored these systems through typologies o were linked to spatial verbs such as: stretch, hold, pull. From these design techniques typologies that were informed through these systems. The mapping below attempts t systems that can be implemented. We looked at the phemenology, infrastructure, cult to see lies or could lie in the site.

Abstract The design for the silos was derivative of the 12 monkeys movie. Our first assignment was to analyze a film from a design stand point. We looked at materiality, themes, and concepts that were expressed throughout the film. A theme that we wanted to explore was the downfall of human society: a post-apocalypse theme. The mural above shows an expression of two worlds. Between the postapocalypse and functional society. A main reason why we picked this film was due the large influence of lebbus woods. We wanted to see what concepts would emerge from this film. The design was an exploration of speculative architecture

Metropolis, became the king of grain elevators. The building type became the Great Pyramids of a new supply chain of industrialized agriculture, made possible by the McCormick Reaper and the standardized system of grading wheat introduced by the Chicago Board of Trade in 1857, allowing crops of a similar quality from a multitude of different farmers to be combined by grade for shipping, storage and trading. By 1871, Chicago's grain elevators had a combined capacity of nearly 12 million bushels. Before the towers of Sullivan or Burnham, they were the city's first skyscrapers.

As people migrate from the nort Within the silos there has been established a small community that has developed a semi-fu of resources. As more and more survivors come to the silos, there is a need to expand and fin flood protection along the river and utilizing the rivers water source to sustain the community spaces as community central hub.

Abstract This class was in collaboration with ARC and LA students. Our tasks involved to go through old EDAW files that were in the archives of College of Environmental Design. We went through old modern to post modern landscapes that were created by EDAW. The exhibit focused to highlight Cal Poly Pomona’s influence of EDAW through the lends of Francis Dean. Francis Dean was Garret Eckbo’s cohort. The Exhibit placed not only photos and vintage drawings, but there were 2 models and constructed bench. The bench was constructed using old construction files that were at our disposal to construct the bench. Also, the 2 models were also reconstructed using old CD’s. This exhibit was a 2 course session. The bench and models constructed are placed at Cal Poly Pomona.

The idea of a park inside an architectural space was formatted to make a central gathering space. The installation was built with 3’ ballons - 1’ ballons, fishing wire, turf grass, and pillows.
