PHONE (707) 280-6196 EMAIL jaymes@alum.mit.edu TWITTER @LA_Urbanist BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE Jaymes is a planner and urban designer who recently completed a Master in City Planning and Certificate in Urban Design at MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP). While at MIT, he worked on planning and design projects for a wide range of real-world clients, including Vanke China; the City of Newton, Massachusetts; the MIT Investment Management Corporation; and Walt Disney Imagineering. Most recently, Jaymes was one of twelve students selected from the School of Architecture and Planning to travel to China to work on the master planning of a 600-acre site outside of Tianjin. Since graduating, he has joined the design team managing the California High-Speed Train project as a planning consultant. Collaborating with engineers from Turner Engineering Corporation and Parsons Brinkerhoff, he is working to develop and write reliability and safety plans for the California High-Speed Rail Authority. He is also teaming-up with Urban Insight to develop and teach a new set of online classes on SketchUp for their popular Planetizen Courses series. He has professional experience working for California cities both large and small. Last summer, he was awarded a Paul and Priscilla Gray Internship Grant by the MIT Public Service Center for his work on transit-oriented district planning at the City of Los Angeles Urban Design Studio. Prior to coming to MIT, Jaymes worked for the City of San Leandro Community Development Department, where he helped to draft the city’s first climate action plan, and for the East Bay Regional Park District.

THE NEXT GREAT AMERICAN STATION

UNION STATION AND DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY PROJECT MIT Master’s Thesis ADVISOR Prof. Dennis Frenchman SITE Los Angeles, CA | DATE July 2012

HISTORIC STATION

ONE S

ABSTRACT Ideas about a city are powerful forces, and have lasting impacts on the built environment. While not every vision is realized in the built form, every aspect of urban development is the reflection of a vision about what the city should be. This is especially true in Los Angeles. Today, the ideas and trends that shaped the development of that city, and many American metropolises, in the twentieth century are falling away, presenting the opportunity for new visions of downtown development and civic space to take form.

OFFI

In this work, I sought to understand the origins and effects of past visions for Downtown Los Angeles, critique the potential of current visions, and propose new ideas for urban development and public space, using the concepts of civic space and convergence as lenses and Union Station as a focal point. The intention is not to predict the future of Downtown Los Angeles, but to invent it.

DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR TRANSIT-ORIENTED DISTRICTS PROJECT Urban Design Guidelines CLIENT City of Los Angeles SITE Los Angeles, CA | DATE August 2011 ABSTRACT City planning, zoning, and street standards in Los Angeles have not kept pace with the growth of the region’s transit network and are still designed to prioritize the movement of automobiles rather than to create safe, interesting and inviting places for people. The Urban Design Studio, which is part of the Department of City Planning was created to change that. This document builds on the existing policies and plans for transit areas, with the goal of being a cohesive set of guidelines for public improvements and private development around the 70 transit stations in Los Angeles in order to improve pedestrian safety and access. It is organized by neighborhood typology, with specific design guidelines for stations, streets and surrounding development.

OLYMPIC PEAK

DISNEY IMAGINATIONS DESIGN COMPETITION PROJECT Theme Park Expansion and Resort Hotel CLIENT Walt Disney Imagineering SITE Anaheim, CA | DATE March 2011 CONCEPT Disney Parks have always allowed guests to visit places that previously existed only in their imaginations. In Olympic Peak everyone can be a part of the Olympic Experience. As an addition to Disney California Adventure park, Olympic Peak takes the guest experience to new heights. Olympic Peak hosts a professional training ice rink, a new “E-ticket” roller coaster, an international food court, and an attached, in-park five-star hotel. Inspired by Walt Disney’s design for the 1960 winter games in Squaw Valley, the land celebrates California’s Olympic legacy and provides a capstone experience for the park which has been reimagined to focus on Walt’s own California adventure. State-of-the-art science is integrated to activate every inch of Olympic Peak. Goofy’s Gondola Ride combines the nostalgia of Disneyland’s original Skyway with 21st Century technology. Addressable digital surfaces line the ice rink to provide heroic racing scenes when the real athletes are off the ice. Augmented Reality opens new doors for the roller coaster, Champions’ Run, where guests are able to ski down the icy slopes of Olympic Peak to win their own Olympic gold.

The project was conceived by the MIT Team headed by Jaymes Dunsmore and created for the 2011 Walt Disney Imagineering’s ImagiNations Design Competition. The competition is a way for students to showcase their talents and for Disney to identify new talent. This project is the sole property of Walt Disney Imagineering and all rights to use these ideas are property of Walt Disney Imagineering.
