Arthur B. Heurtley House: Frank Lloyd Wright Oak Park, Illinois This residential design reflects my future lifestyle. The site is the yard of Frank Lloyd Wright’s prairie style Arthur B. Heurtley House, The design includes a meditation garden with cantilevering circles of grass over a reflecting pool. To create a contemplative atmosphere, aromatherapy plants

are laid out in spiral patterns mimicking Zen gardens. The circles create a strong contrast with the linear geometry of the water feature, resembling the stained glass windows. as well as the side patio. A kitchen garden and herb spiral sit close to the house for easy access. The trees bordering the site were preserved to maintain privacy. One main goal was

to reflect the landscape from the house through horizontal planes, cantilevers over the water feature, reflections of the entrance arch, rounded forms and spirals similar to the entry gate and strong geometry in the layout of the gardens.

Experience DanceExperience ThroughDance Nature Through Muncie, Indiana

The primary design goal of this project is to create a dance garden through an expression of movement with various patterns This was done by carefully choosing plants that will appear dancing in the wind, as well as through a moving water feature Visitor and local interaction and participation, performances, and dance education will occur on the dance floor. Emotional responses will be evoked from experiencing the varying plants and color schemes, which act similar to backdrop and props on a stage. A meaningful appreciation towards dance will be established from this four-season interest garden.

Revitalizing a Rural Village Clarksburg, Ohio Typically, landscape architecture designs are focused in urban areas. Approximately 25.9% of Ohio residents live in a rural setting. This project concentrates on ways in which landscape architectural methods, techniques and designs contribute to enhancing the community sense of place and overall design within the rural village of Clarksburg, Ohio and its surrounding region. Clarksburg lacks multimodal connections to nearby towns and a public open space is currently not provided for the residents. This study proposes a regional greenway network plan including a connection with Clarksburg to the existing Tri-County greenway that runs along an abandoned railroad. This connects Clarksburg to small

5

nearby rural towns, historic Chillicothe and Frankfort. A community master plan redesigns the village to enhance a community sense of place. A site plan provides a public gathering space located in the center of Clarksburg within two adjacent vacant and underutilized lots near the stoplight. The community gathering space includes a safe place for children to play, a community building, restroom facilities, outdoor dining, and a stage. Another site plan features a mound area next to the Methodist church used for an outdoor movie theatre during the warm seasons and for sledding in the winter. The region’s history influences environmental art that is incorporated within each plan.

CITY BOUNDARIES

COMMUNITY NETWORK

There are several towns and villages within Ross County, nearby Clarksburg. They are potential destinations along the greenway.

Each city within Ross County will include a proposed greenway trailhead, which will enhance the economy for the nearby rural villages and towns. It provides destinations for bicyclists that hold historic and traditional character.

PARKS & GREEN SPACE

GREEN CORRIDORS

In the proposed greenway system, the nearby parks could be linked to create green corridors. There are two State Parks, one State Forest, and several smaller town parks and camping areas.

The region’s parks will be connected within the proposed greenway, creating green corridors. These will enhance the wildlife within the region.

BIKE TRAILS

BIKE NETWORK

These are the region’s existing bike trails. These should be connected to the proposed greenway, creating a greenway and bike network.

The proposed greenway will connect with the existing bike trails near Clarksburg. A bike network will be enhanced through this linkage.

The highways show the quick connections between destinations, highlighting important areas. However, these are for vehicular traffic only, and alternative travel should be considered.

When the highlighted route crosses through Clarksburg, it will be framed with trees, include traffic calming devices, and obtain a sense of arrival. This is where the major crossroads in the village will be developed.

ROADS

ROADS

All of the region’s roads represent the density of the towns. This also shows where possible connections can be made for a regional bus system.

Each of the highlighted streets directly connects to Clarksburg. These will act as primary conncetions for the proposed regional bus route.

Streetscape:

Master Plan:

The new streetscape elements enhace the sense of place and arrival for those passing through Clarksburg. A walkable community is formed, with sidewalks next to the building fronts, street trees, on-street parking, and medians.

The greenway connects to the village along Main Street. This allows a direct connection to the central outdoor community hub and public restrooms. Furthermore, the boulevard along High Street connects the playground, community gathering space, outdoor theatre with mound seating, and the baseball fields. A bus stop is

9

implemented with the gas station to help with creating regional connnections. A daycare building infills a vacant lot to help local families. A variety of pavement patterns show a distinction for areas where pedestrians and bicyclists receive priority.


Rural Greenway and Community Design 10


Movie Mounds:

Winter Mounds:

Mounds surround an outdoor movie screen and are used for seating during the warm seasons. The mounds relate to the Hopewell Native Americans that once lived in the region.

The mounds are utilized for sledding and playing during the winter. They also provide interesting forms when covered by snow and create unique views for those walking by.

EPA Campus Rainworks Challenge Ball State University: Muncie, Indiana Ball State University strives to be known as a “green campus”. However, many of the University’s green technologies are not visible for the public. There is a 6.44 acre commuter & residence parking lot located within the northern section of Ball State University’s campus. 6 acres of this parking lot are

comprised of impervious surfaces. With establishing a series of rain gardens, bioswales & constructed wetlands through a redesign of this parking lot, a zero-runoff parking lot for a 5 year storm is accomplished. Research for new pavements and runoff techniques can be tested, the urban heat island effect is reduced,

the water quality in the adjacent pond will be improved, the wildlife habitats are enhanced, and Ball State University will have a visible “green” statement while amplifying the overall aesthetic quality. This was a group project including the work of Alejandra Lagunas, Matthew Adams and myself.

U.S.S. Indianapolis Memorial Indianapolis, Indiana This project is a memorial design in memory of the sailors from the U.S.S. Indianapolis. The team included four members: Alejandra Lagunas, Monica GoshornMaroney, Sarah Adamson, and myself. We all contributed to the design process, and during production, Alejandra and I held the main task of creating the model. Several design goals include creating a catalyst for grief for those who lost their lives as well as a remembrance of those who survived the tragic event. Rows of grasses move in the wind, representing the waves in the ocean. Pedestrian access from all sides of the site is provided while separating the memorial site from surrounding streets and structures.

Remembrance Wall: The shorter living wall honors the sailors that survived the tragedy with blooming plants growing around the protruding plates featuring their names. The longer wall memorializes the sailors that lost their lives in the tragedy with water flowing over inverted plates, which features their names.

Tree Symbolism: The plaza space has twelve magnolia trees to represent the twelve minutes it took for the ship to sink. Four golden rain trees are centered in the plaza to emphasize the four days the sailor waited in the water to be rescued. Photographs by Hilary Buskirk

Memorial Design 22


Annie Street Plaza San Francisco, California The site is located on Annie Street in San Francisco’s financial district, along an alley, between the upscale Palace Hotel and various businesses. Nearby are diverse museums, art galleries and bars, with Yerba Buena just blocks away. This new plaza represents a strong theme of San Francisco’s counterculture movement, connecting with today’s similar social issues. This new space encourages acceptance of all people, as advocated by hippies in the 1960’s. Pedestrians will enjoy walking through or stopping by to see the innovative space for various reasons, including relaxing, becoming enlightened under the budhi sculpture tree and hanging out around the giant lava

lamps. They will become familiar with the psychedelic appearance and take pleasure in its eccentric style. This plaza will introduce a new gathering space for all people to enjoy during the day or night.

Master Plan: Varying levels separate pedestrian and vehicular traffic. The levels break up the vertical space, reducing it to human scale.

Wavy Vertical Gardens: A psychedelic soft flower mural adds contrast to the surrounding buildings’ rough textures. On the upper level, people interact with walls’ facades that change as they are touched.

25


Lava Lamps: The bright lava lamp poles hold up a glass platform with lava flowing through the center, and on which an oversized lava lamp sits. This creates the perfect ambiance for a thriving nightlife as well as security.
