protecting solitude

A master plan phase of campus dictates a north

campus green. On its southern-most base lies the Science and Engineering Library: the only 24 hour library on campus. As a result, there is an abundance of students and staff frequenting the site. While advantageous for its hours, SEL is consistently busy and crowded. Outdoors, there were simple cow paths crossing in the quad, but no real place to momentarily escape the density of indoors.

A new plaza minimizes traffic as well as providing

open outdoor places to study, meet, and relax. Pulling from materiality of the main entrance of the SEL, a walkable space is formed immediately in front of the columns and connects to the future north green walkway.

T

he quad would become a desirable destination. The form ventures away from the conventional cow-path and lawn commonly found across campus (the Oval). By pulling up the carpet of lawn at the edges of the site, the effect in the center would be a contrasting experience set apart from the surrounding flat landscape. The result is a symbolic nest; a place for visitors to escape the stresses, traffic, and sounds of a busy campus and library.

Historic Franklinton

is situated on the east side of Columbus. While redevelopment begins upriver in preparation of the removal of low head dams, downstream similar updates are taking place. Presently, artists have taken over abandoned buildings in this historic portion of town. Future residential, studio, and classroom buildings need to be placed in this area along the Scioto River. Emphasising culture and ecology are vital considerations in the project.

While most of Franklinton would be completely redevel-

oped, functional and historical buildings with character are retained and “parasitic buildings� additions are attached to accommodate new uses. Unique outdoor classroom spaces form and provide room for large exhibitions or selling artwork. A delta form is extended up through the site to facilitate

Because the site is situated near a major waterway, it was

important to regard stormwater from the major building installations in place. The water flows in major swales in the delta-like form off the site into the Scioto.

The public piers branching out over the water and saturat-

ed areas provide spaces to be completely immersed in the riverside ecology. This will not only be an inspiration for many local artists but also an area of respite for other residents and a breeding ground for wildlife.

regional development

Buckeye Lake is a 3,000-acre, shallow lake just outside

Columbus, Ohio. Here, lakeside communities dot the lakeshore and farmland consumes the land area beyond. Because of heavy agriculture, fertilizer nutrients enter the water and it becomes dangerous to various species of the lake. Reforestation, filtering wetlands, and a bike route to reconnect lakeside communities are implemented to revitalize the Buckeye Lake experience many central Ohio


Inspired by the glacial form of kettles dotting the midwest

landscape, these waters provide a large scale repeating aesthetic to the once flat spaces in which they are installed. Although the program of the kettles has changed, their shape is retained. The new wetland function filters the water, controls flooding, and provides an off-lake destination.

T

he wetland system would provide opportunities for leisure activities and also have hydrological functions as well. One wetland is capable of absorbing and holding large amounts of water. A series of these small marshes and ponds would multiply the power of absorbtion. Also, the land/water interface between the saturated spaces amplifies habitat. Large vegetation is planted opposite from the sun to accelerate growth of xeric species.

here is a strong need for circulation around Buckeye Lake. Bike routes would connect the various lake towns and introduce a new interest group in the area that does not involve open water to participate. Serious and recreational cyclists will enjoy and interact with the new spaces formed.

Phosphorous, nutrients, and other pollutants have been flowing into buckeye lake since agriculture took over the land around the site. Reforestation is a promising way to filter those negative inputs before they enter even the streams that feed the lake. it can improve water quality and prevent oxygen depletion in the water.

Swale rehab

Notice that valuable parts of the hydrology system are not furnished with appropriate vegetation. these are simple places where phytoremediation would be ideal to filtrate the water.

Poplars and sunflowers are some ideal plants that can pull pollutants from agricultural runoff

A recent studio project’s challenge was to recreate a particular

concept drawing

bio-zone. In this case, it was a semi-arid climate with animals and plants adapted to the dry environment. Burrowing was a major adaptive feature and it was integral to the process of creating a closed-loop world for these species.

here has never been a time where I have stopped drawing. I cannot help myself; these three portraits were done during lectures. I have become very apt at sight-drawing and finally have developed my skill in portraits.
