Heading West on I-80
Lyceum 2011 A Local Global Rest Area The deserts of our world hold a special allure precisely because they are elemental, solitary spaces that somehow seem to focus our attention on the essence of our being and our position within the affinity of space, light, and time. This allure has attracted man to dwell, prosper, and bathe in their spatial presence despite their sometimes-harsh climatic conditions. -Wendell Burnette Intersection of Great Salt Lake Desert and Interstate 80 outside of Wendover, UT Program: Rest Area, Cafe, & Motel Site:
Design Process Model
The rest area is not only a place for travellers to stop and rest, but also contains 24 motel rooms and a cafe. Public spaces are carved into the ground and covered by a flowing trellis that also acts as a viewing deck for visitors and guest to see out over the salt flats.
Extension of the Highway in the Vast Salt Lake Desert
“A building should be able to open up and say, ‘I am alive and looking after my people,’ or instead, ‘I’m closed now, and I’m looking after my people as well.’ This to me is the real issue: buildings should respond. ...They should open and close and modify and re-modify ...That is part of the architecture for me, the resolution of levels of light that we desire, the resolution of the wind that we wish for, the modification of the climate as we want it. All of this makes a building live.” -Glenn Murcutt

341 logarithmically decreasing spaced poles form a straight line in space intersecting the curvature of the earth at the site, which is a water-leveled surface where objects go over the horizon between 2.9 and 3.2 miles depending upon your height above the surface of the earth. A passive audience of continuous traffic (365 days a year 24/7) engages the art piece and in a span of 20-40 minutes more readily experiences the curvature of the earth and perhaps a greater awareness of our planet and ourselves.

AT THE THRESHOLD OF THE CREATIVE CORRIDOR - LITTLE ROCK, AR PROGRAM The building program is conceived with the specific intent of revitalizing the creative character of the corridor. A mix of galleries, artistsâ€™ studios, art shops, screening theater and multimedia classrooms constitute the primary elements of this program. The roofscape, along with the outdoor public urban space is expected to enrich the cultural life along the creative corridor. Office space for business speculation will support the art district program and will occupy the remaining four stories. The offices may cater to artists and others employed in creative, innovative fields, while serving the neighborhoodâ€™s established community.
The Creation of Threshold Through Plan, Section, and Structure
Of all constituent elements and ideas essential to the composition of architectural form, it is perhaps the edge - the articulation of spatial and material transitions in the vertical plane of the building envelope that is most significant. This is the place in architecture where less most often may truly be more. This is the wall manifest - the space in architecture in which to convey sensations of space involving not only what is seen, but things beyond the limits of the physical experience, things in the conceptual realm of architecture and in the imagination. Seen as the point of maximum tension between natural and human-made form, the wall at its edge emerges as much a threshold as it is a boundary. Attentively articulated, the spatialization of this surface provides scale to the volume, definition to the form, texture and scale to perception, and gravity to the place.

Fayetteville 2030: Food City Scenario Site: Fayetteville, Arkansas
Fifty percent of Fayetteville’s built environment projected to exist by 2030 has not yet been built. Fayetteville will essentially reproduce another
Fayetteville―approximately 100 million square feet including 28,000 housing units―within its boundaries over the next 20 years. The University of Arkansas Community Design Center (UACDC) proposes to model a 2030 Food City Scenario that envisions a future based on food security, linking local food production to urban development. The intention is to enable a more robust planning capacity for shaping Fayetteville’s future through the visualization of long-term development possibilities otherwise unconsidered.
What if 100% of Fayetteville’s new growth had to sustain its equivalent food budget through a local urban agriculture network, or at least create food security? How might a local “foodshed” become an ecological utility distributed throughout all urban land uses, featuring green infrastructure and neighborhoods, public growscapes, and architectural typologies related to animal husbandry, food processing, distribution, and marketing?
“The best way to predict your future is to create it!” -Abraham Lincoln

CPUL: Continuous Productive Urban Landscapes
This scenario reclaims dying commercial space in a tear of urban fabric. Public farms, maintained by local citizens, fill the space with food, color, and life along the CPUL. Nut trees, fruits orchards, flowers, and other plant-life fill the seam between a local pedestrian/bike trail and proposed light rail system. The rail connects the larger grow park, that provides food, to the Southern parts of Fayetteville including the University of Arkansas and the 23,000 students that inhabit it.

Connection between Residential & Agricultural Development
A Social & Agricultural Meeting Place Public transportation and commerce meets the agricultural park allowing the agriculture to not only be a place for public activities but allows the agriculture to diffuse into the city by filling the spaces between. The park does not just provide food but also education of what we eat, how we eat, and how to be self sufficient in producing what we eat. A dense mixed use housing is proposed along the edges of the park defining the edge at some places maximizing the value of the views that come with open public green spaces.
GIS Study and Identification UGB & AGB Layout
Pattern Study as a Means of Understanding Urban Design
One of the first coherent analyzers of the urban scene is “The Image of the City” (1960). In “The Image of the City”, Lynch gives five points of legibility depending on the people’s ‘mental maps’. They are paths, districts, edges, nodes, and landmarks. Architecture lies in opportunities of form, material, and function. This study takes the ideas of architectural relationships and applies it to pattern and large scale ideas of urbanism. This creates an architecture of city scale.
Urban Pattern Design
Urban Fabric and Function Meet
City Scale Food City Scenario Analyzation and Application By studying the location in which the design is to happen, one starts to understand opportunities to maximize land use and the relationships of those uses. This study identifies locations of prime soils and the extent of current urban sprawl. This also identifies the issues that should be challenged in order to create a design beyond efficiency that still reacts on a very functional level.
Urban Growth Boundaries limit the city’s sprawl and force the city to urbanize. Agricultural Growth Boundaries are set up to provide areas with the most potential to produce the food required to self sustain the city that works it. By setting up both Urban Growth Boundaries and Agricultural Growth Boundaries the natural ecologies present in the hills of the Ozarks can not only survive but support the agriculture needed to be produced.
Hardgrave Peckerwood Mill
1903 Mill Room at Fort Smith Folding Bed and Table Co.
Rock Creek Trestle, Clark County
For centuries the primary source of raw material for most things produced in our nation was the hardwood forests, thus the expression â€œwhere there is wood there is a wayâ€?. Being located near the Western edge of the hardwood forests, Arkansas became a major producer of most things wooden with secondary woodworking firms located throughout the state.
A Place to Keep Tradition Alive & Celebrate the Hardwood Tree
Fort Smith, being located on a navigable waterway and on the border of the Indian Territory, developed by the early 20th century into the manufacturing center of the Southwest with over 100 manufacturers producing a great variety of wood products. The Museum of the Hardwood Tree is a vessel for displaying these products. It not only keeps the rich history of the area alive but motivates and inspires entrepreneurs and artists to continue the legacy left behind. Two living tree exhibits exist in the project. The first, located to the side, is put on a pedestal and separated from the forest in order to separate it from the field and make it an object in the landscape. The second sits as part of the structure of the ramp that flows from the building. It is placed directly in the center of the circulation and requires the users to negotiate their way around the hardwood tree allowing for a more personal interaction.
Creation of Form
1. By understanding the topography and massing as two three dimensional objects, the relationships allow for negotiation of site conditions and opportunity to bridge. 2. By keeping the building level, the architecture acts as a datum for the landscape revealing different aspects of the trees. 3. By a transformational move from horizontal to vertical, the building starts to take shape as well as shifting the vertical giving hierarchy to the forested side. 4. Function starts to influence the form by transforming the building to negotiate shade and shelter and pushing the backside towards the open lake. 5. By extracting the geometry of the form in 10â€™ increments and extension of every other, the structure reveals itself and allows for the intricacies of the making to have a framework. 6. Program is divided through a delamination of the form into public and private. 7. A 30â€™ moving gallery concludes the museum giving mltiple views of the trees at the end and lowering the guests down to the cafe, gift shop, and porch. 8. A series of tension cables are applied to the structure in order to resist wind shear and create a transparent facade.
The formal side flexes out allowing for opportunities that reveal the relationships of structure below and extension of facade above.
Flitch Truss Joint
Top Connection of Flitch & Support Structure
Modified Flitch Structure:
Typical flitch beams make the section profile of a beam smaller or stronger through the addition of a steel plate sandwiched within the wood beam. The extrusion of the web and placement of the flange allows for connections and shelter of the wood as well as giving a smaller structural profile.
The Porch(from Old French porche, from Latin porticus ‘colonnade’, from porta ‘passage’) highlights the form allowing for the exterior experience of the architecture and creating space for exterior exhibits and circulation. The floor plates and cable system act as the datum to express the form.
The intricate changes of the flitch trusses create a dynamics space and capture atmosphere through scale and repetition.

Urban environments require vertical spaces to be created to maximize land. This applies to all aspects of life (and death). With real estate at a premium, how do we create spaces to hold our deceased loved ones? By creating icons that represent the places in which they lie.
A gothic inspired assembly space sits atop the skyskraper. This a sublime space for people to hold their ceremonies and say their goodbyes.
Niches are carved into the walls allowing for urns to be stored and natual light to pour into the loculi spaces.
The grand stair takes the visitors down into the earth. Once there, elevators will lift them into the sky where their loved ones eternally rest.

Constructing Dilapidation : Structural Canopy Site:
Plaza Del Desierto, Barakaldo, Spain
The canopy flexes in response to ground elevation, vegetation, and program of the previous design by NO.MAD. The formal composition not only creates space below but creates figure from above. The undulating sheds not only create opportunities for light and shadow but also moves water to allow for natural gardens to grow with little to no human maintenance.
Tectonics & the Cantilever Pattern in Structure
ROME Palazzo Barberini Palimpsest Drawing
The sloping site had formerly been occupied by a garden-vineyard of the Sforza family, in which a palazzetto had been built in 1549. When Cardinal Alessandro Sforza met financial hardships, the still semi-urban site was purchased in 1625 by Maffeo Barberini, of the Barberini family, who became Pope Urban VIII. Carlo Maderno began in 1627, assisted by his nephew Francesco Borromini. When Maderno died in 1629, Borromini was passed over and the commission was awarded to Bernini. Borromini stayed on regardless and the two architects worked together on this project. Works were completed by Bernini in 1633. (Left) Palazzo
First designed in 1517 by Antonio da Sangallo the Younger, its building history involved some of the greatest Italian architects of the 16th century, including Michelangelo, Jacopo Barozzi da Vignola and Giacomo della Porta.
