LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE PORTFOLIO

Jake Senne Ball State University Class of 2021


MY STORY As early as I can recall, I have had a passion for both design and the outdoors. This has led me to landscape architecture: the perfect combination of both. As a designer, I look to create pieces that are beautiful, yet functional, with the ability to connect people with each other, as well as the world around them.

THE BIOSCAPE The design for the “Living Street” alters the perception of how an urban streetscape can both look and function. Through a natural storm water system, runoff is captured and treated at the source by way of planted bioretention beds. This environmental approach to urban street design creates a healthy atmosphere for both the body and the mind of the visitors. Media: AutoCAD • Photoshop • Illustrator SketchUp • Lumion


Bioretention beds along the “Living Street� collect runoff, allowing it to filter into the ground naturally

The Cypress Grove provides a unique gathering space along the urban streetscape


january

By texturizing the building facades, the streetscape creates a unique experience that pulls visitors through the site and encourages gathering and socializing in the pockets formed by the set back storefronts. A plant palate (right) made up of predominately native species blends into the fabric of the urban landscape, adding to the overall experience of site, as well as its environmental benefit. Layered plantings (below) add beauty throughout the seasons, while the iris and sedges naturally treat runoff.

The Cypress Grove (left) serves as the one of the primary social space of the streetscape. The design for this plaza features a floating boardwalk, elevated above a sea of flowing Pennsylvania sedge. Native bald cypress trees soar from the voids created by the raised pathways and seating areas. This space provides an urban oasis where visitors can relax and unwind, just inches from nature.

‘FRAGMENTS’ CAP COURTYARD Inspired by the simple straight line geometry and varying angles of the surrounding architecture, the design serves as a contemporary outdoor classroom and gathering space for students of the University. In addition, the space serves as a showcase of sustainable materials, celebrating products that have been locally sourced and are environmentally friendly. Media: AutoCAD • Photoshop SketchUp • Lumion


The design transforms the once underutilized site into a lively social and educational space

HOKUSAI GARDENS Inspired by Katsushika Hokusai’s woodblock press series “The 36 Views of Mount Fuji”, this Japanese style garden takes visitors on a journey through Japan’s contrasting landscapes. The design, centralized around a metaphorical Mount Fuji, looks to mimic the natural beauty of Japan as seen through the work of one of history’s most prolific artists.

From the stone lanterns to the specific plant palette, the garden follows the teachings and principals of traditional Japanese Garden design that has been passed down through generations, while incorporating other subtle elements as well. The focal point of the garden is a Weeping Higan Cherry Tree, the metaphorical Mount Fuji. This symbol of Japan is intended to be seen from anywhere in the garden, just as is the regal mountain in Hokusai’s artwork.

LEGEND

1. The Cherry Blossom, symbolizing Mount Fuji’s beauty and elegance, acts as the focal point of the design. 2. An informal path rising through the hills leads visitors on a journey mimicking those taken by the figures illustrated in the woodblock prints. 3. The Honganji Temple sits atop the highest point of the site, looking out on the landscape, surrounded by clouds of white hydrangeas. 4. A dip in the adjacent hill provides a glimpse of the Temple above the clouds while the shade trees frame the views of the Cherry Blossom. 5. A boardwalk winds through the flowing grasses and over Lake Suwa, providing uninterrupted views of “Mount Fuji”.

THE VILLAGE AT CARDINAL DOWNS An alternative to the traditional, sprawling neighborhoods that are far too common, the design for Cardinal Downs implements the ideologies of the Congress of New Urbanism and Transit Oriented Development. By rethinking the norms of housing layout, the design creates a new community dynamic by allowing for more interaction between residents. Media: AutoCAD • Photoshop • Illustrator

The concept for Cardinal Downs is driven by a strong central spine, linking key features across the site with a pedestrian focused circulation route. This feature runs from the repurposed Mitchell Elementary School, through the Village Center, and into the residential realm, where it then breaks off to form the mirrored greenways between housing clusters. This organizational pattern allows for the pedestrian flow to be virtually disconnected from vehicular traffic, creating a safer, healthier community.

‘The Alameda’ Pedestrian Walkway

Conceptual Stormwater Management Plan

With such poor soil and an incredibly flat site with little to no drainage, storm water runoff becomes a major concern. The capture and treatment of runoff begins in the mirrored greens between housing clusters, where a series of swales mirror the walkways, collecting the rainwater and directing it to the three and a half acre pond at the center of the community, creating a both functional and beautiful gathering space for residents and visitors alike.

INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE SCENIC BYWAY Located along the shores of Lake Michigan, US Rt. 12 runs from just outside Chicago all the way into Michigan. The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Scenic Byway links the environmental, recreational, and cultural elements along Route 12. Through a series of roads, trails, and open spaces, the design intends to celebrate the natural beauty of the lakeshore. Media: ArcGIS Pro • Illustrator • InDesign

Note: This project was completed in conjunction with B. Hile, T. Prewitt, and S. Bisch. Their contributions and graphics will be attributed accordingly.


In an effort to engage the community in the project, a program was developed alongside local artists to create unique signage. These pieces would be located at each point along the byway, creating a common thread along the lakeshore.

Hiking & Trailheads

The Dunewood Regional Trail Through the analysis and research phase of the project, our team discovered a severe lack of connections between existing trails and the areas of high intrest, leading to a fragmented network of pedestrian access. Through the Trains and Trails program, the Dunewood Regional Trail establishes a unified trail system intertwined with the South Shore Line, linking existing clusters of recreational and cultural resources along the lakeshore. A bike rental service integrated into the train stations encourages the use of alternate modes of transportation in the region, while simultaneously allowing for both residents and vistors to experience the Dunes National Lakeshore in a new manner.

Wayfinding Signage Concepts • Graphic by S. Bisch

Our team placed a heavy focus on wayfinding and placemaking elements. By using local materials and natvie plants, the design is interwoven into the fabric of the Dunes region, while also providing a statement for the byway. The signage directs visitors to the local ammeneties and attractions in a clear and direct fashion.

HER STORY

From her inception, the USS Indianapolis was revered, and considered by most to be the pride of the Navy. During World War II, the Indianapolis earned 10 battle stars, including efforts in the infamous attacks of D-Day and Iwo Jima. Following these successes, the Indianapolis was selected for a mission that would change the course of history. This vessel was chosen to deliver integral pieces of the atomic bomb “Little Boy.� After the completion of this task, tragedy struck the Indianapolis and her crew. Shortly after midnight on July 25th, 1945, two torpedoes ripped through the ship, sending it rapidly towards the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Over 800 of the men aboard survived this initial threat, but without the ability to send a distress call, their nightmare was only beginning.

Various vegetated depressions throughout the site capture surface runoff. This stormwater is then directed to a large underground cistern, and stored for irrigation purposes.

In the ensuing days, these stranded sailors would endure countless shark attacks, extreme hunger, thirst, and terrifying hallucinations. The sun would rise four times before the survivors were eventually saved. Of the initial 1197 men aboard, only 317 were pulled from the waters the morning of their rescued. The tragedy of the USS Indianapolis is regarded as the worst disaster in the history of the United States Navy.

The Memorial Terraces allow for relaxation and contemplation
