GROW YOUR OWN CITY competition entry Year Place Collaboration Awards

spring 2013 Red Hook, Brooklyn, New York, U.S.A. Jason Rood, Benjamin Bye, Alex Kenton First Place Winning Design for The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture 2013 TIMBER IN THE CITY: URBAN HABITATS COMPETITION

Grow Your Own City strives to technically and aesthetically celebrate the new building technology of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT). This project, located in Red Hook Brooklyn, will become the assembly hub of Grow Your Own City modular CLT pods. Once home to the busiest ports in New York, the borough of Red Hook, Brooklyn, had been in a steady economic decline since the 1960’s. The community has a strong heritage, however, living up to the name of Fort Defiance that once graced its shores. Today, Red Hook is one of the largest artisan communities and culinary tourism stops in New York, featuring outdoor recreational areas, urban farms, farmers markets, bicycle races, and arts festivals. Grow Your Own City aims to enhance the energetic life and community of Red Hook, building on its rich natural and cultural history and serving as a catalyst for urban regeneration and economic growth. The project would create affordable living units that could support a wide range of daily activities, inspire healthy community relations and establish and celebrate the natural forest and ecosystem of the Northeast United States. The bicycle shop, Timber Restaurant, and green alley highlight Red Hook’s vibrant cycling, culinary and eco-friendly culture.

MOHAI PORTLAND thesis studio (in progress) Year Place

winter 2013 Centennial Mills, Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.

Portland, Oregon at its heart, is a city of the river. The Willamette River for ever has been a home to beautiful plants, animals, people, cultures and industry. At its earliest settlement from native tribes, to the first European explorers, the Willamette River has been the lifeblood of the city and surrounding area. With a unique depth, the river is capable of bearing deep hull sailing ships, and thus became a port city. Inevitably Portland industry grew. The Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) utilizes its unique site on and over the edge of the Willamette River, as a catalyst to explore, explain, and learn the beautiful history and industry of Portland, Oregon. The project also includes a large temporary exhibition pavilion used for temporary at installations, concerts, community and city functions. As Portland does not have that one recognizable multipurpose building, nor one on the river, this space fills that gap for the city.

TROUTDALE CIVIC CENTER studio project Year Place

spring 2012 Troutdale, Oregon, U.S.A.

The town of Troutdale, Oregon at one time was one of the most western stops of the American railway and home to huge farmlands. Industry soon took over as Reynolds Metals opened up an aluminium plant along the Columbia River. Since its closing in 2002, Troutdale has seen a decline in population and business, most noticed in its existing crumbling city hall. Troutdale, Oregon has a very rich cultural, geographical and geological heritage. Sitting in the mighty Columbia River Valley, minutes from the Multnomah Falls, Troutdale, as a city, is as important as its motto implies - “Gateway To The Gorge.” As a Civic Center (a library, a courthouse, city offices, retail and housing) this project has the ability to become a catalyst for urban regeneration, economic growth, and enhancing the existing energy and community charm of Troutdale. The Troutdale Civic Center promotes public participation and creates an urban center for the city. The site design itself, is based on the city motto atop the Centennial Arch “Gateway To The Gorge,” where the campus is a ‘gateway’ or ‘crossroads’ highlighting the historical, cultural, geographical, and native habitat attributes of the Columbia River Valley.

SOUTH EUGENE YMCA studio project Year Place

summer 2012 Troutdale, Oregon, U.S.A.

“The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. The purpose of our Y is to provide life-enriching, learning opportunities to people of all generations and walks of life. All Y activities seek to create a safe, loving, fun environment which fosters spiritual, emotional and physical growth.” - South Eugene Family YMCA Mission Statement The Willamette Valley is very unique geographic and geologic area. The City of Eugene, Oregon, is planned and grew as a city on the banks of the Willamette River, with a central axis (main street) connecting Skinners Butte to Spencers Butte. These two basalt rock formations create strong natural book ends and outdoor recreational areas for the city and community. The South Eugene YMCA utilizes Basalt rock as inspiration to ground the building to the site and community. At the buildings core is an atrium and Basalt climbing rock that spands the interior and exterior environment.
