DESIGN 2: RAILROAD SQUARE FIRST ARCHITECTURE PROJECT
This project was broken into two stages. A wide range of data was collected from the Thomasville area during the first stage. Based on the pedestrian data, I proposed extending the walking path into the neighborhood behind the plaza and adding an additional plaza inviting in more pedestrians.
SUB/URBAN CORRIDOR PEDESTRIAN
1 MILE WALK
.9 MILE WALK
NARRATIVE Issue: There is disconnect between the living area and the plazas. Miracle and Capital Plazas face each other with the circulation area caving inward away from the community living in the area. Looking at a plan view of the area, the public space is clearly cut off from the private, living space. Purpose: Adding a corridor matters because it gives the surrounding community behind the Miracle and Capitol Plazas an accessible connections to the plaza area. Adding a corridor will also expand the commercial area and increase customer traffic. Also, the new path will decrease the walking time from the Ninth Terrace Park to the edge of Miracle plaza. Goal: Adding a new corridor will increase the accessibility for the surrounding community and commuters coming into the plaza. Three pocket parks are also introduced to increase community involvement and host local events.

DESIGN 6.2: TRADE SCHOOL
This project is a trade school located in South Side Chicago. The design focuses on the corner where Blackstone Ave and E 63 St. intersect facing the future Obama Library. Also, the Metro next to the school is a design influence.
WALL DETAIL AND BUILDING SECTION OF THE TRADE SCHOOL
DESIGN 4: ST. LOUIS MUSIC SCHOOL
The school is located in St. Louis near a factory district. Design influence stems from the surrounding area and the music the building will serve.
DESIGN 4: LANE WAY HOUSE
The site is located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Lane way houses have recently become popular in the area. Allows owners to live within close proximity to work, school, stores etc for a lower cost. These houses are typically located on pre-existing lots, towards the backyard opening up to the service road.
DES IGN 1 : PAINT ING R E P R O DU C T I O N A N D 3 - D M ODEL
For this project, I chose Nagyâ€™s Space Modular Experiment painting to re-create and transform into a 3-D model. I studied the shapes and was drawn to the Gold lines across the paining. The lines are such an important part but very simple. To create the lines I used copper plates cut up in various sizes. The copper plates are wedged in between two sheets of plexiglas with cuts to support the copper. The sphere shapes are created out of styrofoam covered in painted plaster. The transparent circle is set back wedge between the two sheets of plexiglas.
REPRODUCTIONS PAINTING WATERCOLOR AND INK
This project is made out of recycled pallet boards. The boards are laid vertically next to each other with the top edge broken away. Laid together the broken edges form two peaks. After the boards were firmly attached together the top was burned with a blow torch. This unified all the boards and softened the broken edges.
LAMPS Materials: Recycled wood is used to form the spiral and LED strip running in the middle. Aluminum is wedged between each wood member angling slightly down. All four sides of aluminun together forms an inverted pyramid with an opening in the middle for the strip to run through. The reflective surface of the aluminum allows the light to project further out. Materials: Driftwood coated with polyurethane and an LED light placed in the center.
