SITE PLAN SCALE: 1/32” = 1’

Mixed-Use Residential in Springfield (in progress)

Springfield is on the rise. Cultural and economic forces are driving a renaissance along the once sleepy Main Street. This mixed-use CLT development would offer office, retail and residential units adjacent to the Willamette River. SECTION A

scale: 1/8” = 1’-0”

i. site plan ii. site forces diagram

Structural Analysis of a Truss The truss was designed to clearly express the distribution of forces as well as come together with clean and simple connections that concentrates attention on the crossing of the 2x6 douglas fir chords and the 1/2� steel tension cables. i: exploded axonometric expressing truss assembly

Swansong School of Architecture The new school of architecture looks to create an urban gateway on the University Street corridor. Sunken corridors and narrow wings provide a light filled environment and flexible outdoor spaces for faculty, students and visitors alike. i: sections moving from North to South showing the variety of vertical space created

program diagram i. the basement level is penetrated by sunken courtyards providing a quaint atmosphere for research under the bustle of university street. ii. the ground level places galleries and gathering spaces along the street students are pulled into the double height openings and through these social spaces and multi-level courtyards to make their way to class. iii. the third, fourth and fifth floor look to juxtapose open plan studios with faculty offices to enhance the ever-lasting dialogue between faculty and student

Urban Design in Barcelona Barcelona’s Superilles pose an interesting idea on how we can reallocate our city spaces to serve people first. Through data collecting and studying Eixample blocks, the pilot superille and plazas in Granada we came up with a parametric urban design tool to respond to the existing attributes of the city. i: urban design tool methodology ii: Urban Environment data map iii: test superilla area

i: Granada study plazas ii: map of the Granada plazas in the Albacin district iii: iterations of Granada data maps

JO + OZ Elevation Matrix A complete series of elevations were created for the design development of the JO + OZ mixed use housing development in NW Portland. 1st row: overall elevations showing both buildings side by side 2nd & 3rd row: exterior elevations showing the buildings individually 4th & 5th row: interior courtyard elevations with buildings poched in grey

Lents Pedway Diptych Two renderings weere produced from opposite sides of a proposed pedway to express the potential use and feel of the space. Included in a package for design review.
