DEVELOPING THE PROJECT VISION

To begin, the teams were given a visioning task that sought to do two things: STEVIE WON-

..

1.

To stress test for regulatory barriers to redevelopment, and

2.

To add long-term value by imagining a Detroit of the future. Embedded within this visioning task was an understanding of Detroit’s values, lifestyle, and the role of its commercial corridors in the economic vitality of the city. The teams were offered three distinct sites, one on the East side of the city, one on the West and one near the Central core. Each site had its own community character, and its own particular set of challenges and constraints.

DRAFT 08.01.2017

REGULATORY REFORM

Taking into consideration the type of spontaneous, creative and incremental development that has kept Detroit going through its toughest times, it was decided to call the Pink Zoning approach by a name more fitting to this city of innovation.

MARTHA REEVES

STEVIE WONDER

The name Mix Tape was chosen. Mix tape represents a compilation of favorite pieces of music, typically by different artists, recorded onto a cassette tape or other medium by an individual. Such activities are central to this city of Blues, Jazz, Motown and more recently House and Techno Music, where the notion of improvisation is key. The notion of improvisation, call and response, an incremental give and take that builds on something already started is inherent in the role of the DJ who selects individual tracks tied to a particular theme, building according to the energy of the crowd, and creating a new and unique identity comprised of different parts.

Mix­-Tape Publication graphics

Mix-Tape is a zoning handbook for detroit’s commercial corridors. while it is a collaborative effort between multiple firms and the city, i was involved in creating themed graphic illustrations for the publication and

compiling the book onto a set of presentation boards for the design

139 exhibition.

Such a practice is intrinsic to African American creative processes. In the case of zoning for diverse mixed-use urban application, the City Planner performs the function of the DJ, selecting appropriate uses from a regulatory system and applying them to create new and dynamic character-filled spaces.

D E T R O I T D E S I GN 139 DETROIT DESIGN 139 is a UNESCO City of Design bi-annual exposition that will showcase relevant projects being completed in the City of Detroit. Structured around the targeted neighborhood frameworks identified by the City of Detroit Planning Department, the expo will establish a collective city-wide vision for innovative landuse planning, green infrastructure, creative re-use of existing buildings and architectural design for all of Detroit’s 139 square miles. For thirty days in September and October, the DETROIT DESIGN 139 exposition will be headquartered in a ‘storefront’ at 1001 Woodward Avenue, centrally locating a coordinated series of design advocacy initiatives that will include an exhibition, lectures, events, and tours. Providing an open, inviting ‘storefront’ for this collection of design initiatives will ensure that all of Detroit’s communities impacted by these projects are integral to the conversation and ultimately drive future design outcomes. The DETROIT DESIGN 139 exposition will channel the experience of local, national and international professionals towards resolving current city-wide challenges and identifying future opportunities, with the underlying objective of establishing Detroit as a destination for worldclass, design excellence.

SPURRING DEVELOPMENT

IMAGINING THE FUTURE

STRATEGIES TO SUPPORT DYNAMIC ACTIVITY ON DETROIT’S COMMERICAL CORRIDORS Having identified the issues causing obstruction to mixed-use, diverse development opportunities, the teams then proposed strategies for remedying the regulations, and identified specific solutions for each site and theme presented. Each strategy responds to a specific theme identified as essential to creating a more streamlined regulatory process, reducing bureaucratic obstacles, while allowing for a more inclusive and diverse set of uses. The four themes, Mixed-Use, Open Space, Mobility, and Process, represent a framework against which to test strategies, applicable to issues inherent in the existing conditions of each site.

USING INNOVATIVE DESIGN TO ACTIVATE COMMERCIAL CORRIDORS Just as the African American population remaining in Detroit through its toughest times improvised to create new uses out of old and build an urban life on the top of abandonment so new approaches to design and planning can bring dynamic innovative activity to the streets of Detroit.

DETROIT COMMONS: development proposal package (intern project)

Working as multidisciplinary team of interns, we created a development proposal for the Gratiot Justice Complex as a summer project. we envision the site transformed into Detroit Commons: a mixed-use community with high quality affordable housing for all detroiters, dynamic retail along Gratiot Avenue connecting Greektown and the Entertainment District, a year-round open space to generate activity in this underutilized part of the city, and the infrastructure to support new development. As

part of this team, i researched precedents, created a masterplan with

program and massing studies, developed these massings into proposed buildings,

Eastern Market Shed 7 Light Industrial/Retail, Office, Residential 4th year studio

Located

on the north end of detroit’s eastern market, this project expands the historic food market with a new mixed

use building to accommodate the area’s growing needs. as an integrated design project, a chief consideration is given

to thoughtfully integrating the technical systems of the building into the design. however, the design also emphasizes integration into the historic, social, and aesthetic contexts. to better emulate a firm environment and foster cooperation, this project was done as a three person group.

— The building is designed as a double loaded set of retail/makers spaces along a covered atrium plaza. the double loaded plaza reflects the market shed experience, and provides much needed programed public space. — Light industrial makers’ spaces line the plaza, and give artists a flexible space to make and sell their work. the glulam post and beam system allows artists to start with a small unit, and expand along with their needs grow.

— Eastern market corporation’s headquarters overlooks the market, and includes leasable office space to incubate new business in the area. — Residential apartments address a growing desire to live in the market. in the spirit of flexibility and accommodating different user needs, there are multiple layouts: ranging two-story single bedroom units, to ada compliant two bedroom units

Urban Design Strategy + Student Center Detroit Mercy Student Housing 3rd year studio

After assessing the university district as a complete neighborhood, it became apparent that while it has a strong residential core, the neighborhood’s commercial corridors are lacking quality retail and food options. coinciding with this is an apparent need of vibrancy. by udm using grant money to take the first step of revitalizing the mcnichols corridor, it can create a bridge of stability between gesu church and udm — thereby connecting the university to the neighborhood. the corner development would act as an incubator of new retail and food stores—which would lead to a greater sense of vibrancy. — Under this proposition, the new building would anchor the corner as a walkable destination. it would be mixed-use,

— Eatery would have a rotating chef staff, serving as an incubator for more quality food options in the area. this would be modeled after warren foodworks cafe in warrenton, nc

— Retail would include a household goods store (essentially a mini-target).

— Amphitheater would build sense of community through open events.

Medium Scale Mixed-use Center Cancer wellness center, housing, digital fab lab 2nd year studio

Designed for the historic hill district of pittsburgh, this mixed-use center combines apartments and retail with a cancer wellness center. i used the many site restrictions to inform and enliven my design, while creating a multitude of community-building spaces. Main design features: —Raised certain programs above adjacent buildings to

provide light and capitalize on views of pittsburgh

—Pushed back north facade in response

to residential context

—Engaging local community by

expanding alleyway into community space

—Digital fabrication lab merging retail and therapy with community-building

—Enclosed outdoor community space for residents

Augury is BRIDGING the past, present and future... OBSERVING energy made visible through patterns... of birds creating space FLYING through the sky.


Volterra Augury Museum Tower 3rd year studio — Study abroad

The essence of Augury is watching birds in flight, and harnessing their energy to interpret the future. located in Volterra, Italy, this new museum to augury activates an underutilized hill site to showcase the ancient practice as a part of Volterra’s history. — This project gives users the opportunity to observe birds in flight,

as well as observe the site from the viewpoint of the birds—thus conveying a sense of flying through the site, over the wall, and around the museum.

— As towers are not only conducive to observation, but are also an important piece of Volterra’s history, the museum is itself a tower, with the exhibits viewed as the users progress up the stairs. Volterra Augury Museum Tower

UDM SOA School Design Charette

This project explores creating a new pedestrian entrance on detroit mercy’s campus. rather than a using a fence, the new boundary is integrated into alternative uses, such as seating and shelter. in essence, it becomes a dynamic boundary. working with a group of five students from all different years, i focused on mentoring the younger students as we designed the project, then i produced the computer graphics.

The Glass Blower initiates his ritual by taming his narrow-minded material into his trust. Pushing and pulling the unsuspecting substance, he exploits the new malleability. All the while rotating the piece, he then breathes life into the former inanimate—trapping emotion into a physical form. The piece, with its flowing curves and infused color, now slows time for all beholders.


Glass Artist Live/Work/Retail Space Poetic space 2nd Year Studio

In this project, i designed a live/work/retail space based on a poetic narrative for a glass-blowing artist. located on the former “Avenue of Fashion” in detroit, this building would act as a beacon of hope in the area’s revitalization. additionally, as the project speaks of hand crafting and artistry, all the drawings are hand rendered as a way to enforce the project’s narrative. Design Intentions —Sense of rotating, Pushing & Pulling —Split level to enforce sense of pushing/pulling,

as well as allowing public to safely view glass blowing

—Passerby sees furnace hole from sidewalk, is intrigued, and pulled in by canopy, and up around the gallery space to the original axis in line with the furnace, but is now inside, and a level up —Mix of glass walls and concrete; concrete as analogous to glass. both are shaped/poured while fluid and liquid, then harden into very non-malleable state—cannot go back to fluid state—like it is frozen in time

Livernois Community Center Walking building 1st Year Studio

Located on Livernois Ave. on the northern edge of detroit, this center would provide the area with a new cafe, art gallery, and community space. through this project, i explored the possibility of a “walking building,” which raises up on legs and walks to vacant lots around the community—like a food truck. —Building raises to walk to different vacant lots

—Engages neighborhood on larger scale and increases its vibrancy

—Roof garden structure folds down while in motion

Foldable Architecture 1st Year Studio

Could

someone make an effective, portable homeless shelter out of one piece of cardboard merely using cuts and folds? that

was the question i explored through this project. my solution was cutting the one piece into two interlocking forms which

reflects the human form. it then easily folds up into a suitcase size package to be carried as needed.

Design/Build Screen Wall 2nd Year Studio

design/build screen wall

In this project, i designed and built a section of a screen wall installation for a local building. framing the newly renovated building in a different view to passersby, the wall would screen the sidewalk from the building’s businesses. a play of light and shadow is created by the screen’s module panels, of which i digitally fabricated a four foot section.
