Year: Fall 2017 (4th year) Boeing recently developed a micro-lattice structure that is the inspiration of the design of this materials research lab at Cherokee Farms in Knoxville, TN. This lattice is reﬂected in the contemporary space frame structure and facade system. By having an interstitial ﬂoor for mechanical space and the structural space frame, the company’s lab spaces are completely open ﬂoor plans. The structure allows Boeing’s program to be raised off the street level and the ground level to be public with a large courtyard accessed by the underbelly of Boeing’s mass.

Room for Company Growth
.The only spaces for Boeing that are entirely accessible to the public are the lobby and gift shop. This space allows the company to display their most recent projects to the public while inspiring the community to be innovative and creative.

Interstitial Floor The Boeing Lattice program needed to have ﬂexible ﬂoor plates that allowed for both company growth and large machinery. By creating an interstial ﬂoor, the labratory spaces are able to expand and contain minimal structural members. Within the interstial ﬂoor, the HVAC units are contained as well as a space frame structure. This ﬂoor regulates the heating and air for the entire Boeing mass as well as houses the electrical equipment for the second, third, and fourth levels.
Level 3 Plan
The main mode of circulation through the building is a suspended staircase that is supported fully by steel tension cables. This staircase is used by all of the tenants and helps divide the program while keeping the tenants in conversation with each other.
LIVING TOWER Instructor: Professor Thomas K. Davis, FAIA
Year: Summer 2017 ( 3rd year ) An abandoned nuclear facility, the site offered a variety of existing concrete structures. A ten percent complete cooling tower is used as the foundation of a residential complex. The form allows for the center of the tower to be hollow therefore creating a 500 foot open-air atrium. The circular ďŹ‚oor plates allow for both views into the proposed nuclear heritage park and into the center atrium.

Ijams Market Instructor: Michael Davis , Sanders Pace
Year: Spring 2017 ( 3rd year )
The Ijams Market creates an agritourism hub for Knoxvilleâ€™s Urban Wilderness and Ijams Nature Center. The main purpose of this design is to further the communities knowledge about their environment and expand the usage of the existing site. The form is derived from the existing trails on site. The market creates a large public space for community festivals and extends the current hours of use on the site.
Daylighting - Shading
Top Lighting : Saw-tooth skylights both let in sun from high angles as well as reďŹ‚ect light across the space.
Anti-Glare Lighting : Louvers block summer light while allowing winter light and still allows views outward.
Ventilation - Passive Cooling
Building Mechanical Strategies : Daylighting : Top lighting and reďŹ‚ected light provided by skylights Exterior Shading : Horizontal louvers at along long glass curtain walls Ventilation : Operable clerestories along glass curtain walls, operable skylights where the most interior heat exists Thermal Mass : Large massing wall holds heat during the winter months
Operable Ventilation : Saw-tooth Skylights
