01 RECLAIMING URBAN ECOSYSTEMS Public Infrastructure / Mixed Use Third Year Studio / Fall 2017 Downtown State College, PA State College, PA, is a small urban area in the Spring Creek Watershed. Within the watershed are many high quality streams, which are continuously negatively impacted by urban growth, impervious surfaces, and current and outdated ‘gray’ infrastructure. This design looks at ways to retrofit existing infrastructure to not only lessen the environmental impacts of urban areas, but to also increase desireable greenspace in cities.

PLANNING GOAL

My goal is to design green stormwater management practices in an urban area within our watershed. Through good planning, I will identify the most suitable area within the 93,000 acre watershed for this new infrastructure. Ideally, this retro-fitting of current infrastructure will not only reduce runoff and downstream pollution, but also beautify an urban area, all while not impeding on or inconveniencing any current functions going on in this urban area.

STREETSCAPE TREATMENT

Because the project site was large, the best approach to managing stormwater responsibly was to pick many types of interventions, come up with prototypes for them, and then map out and plan where those interventions could work on site. All existing urban conditions (parking, service access to buildings, turning radii on roads, etc...) were taken into account while deciding where these treatments could work. Not only will this design not disturb current functions, it will also provide new greenspace.

02 ELEVATED Education Center / Mixed Use Second Year Studio / Spring 2017 Penn State Arboretum, University Park PA Beginning with master planning the 75-acre site, complete with 30 acres of agricultural land, a forest and prairie restoration, and four buildings complete with parking and full ADA access, this educational center was designed to connect visitors to the landscape, while mitigating it’s impact. After the campus was master planned, I moved into the central campus space, which featured a link between the interior and exterior programmed elements. These included indoor/ outdoor eating, expo spaces, and classrooms. The elevated path, which makes a loop around a closed depression on site, was designed to show responsible stormwater management.

Process

05 FIBER OP(BRICKS) Materials Experimentation Third Year Materials Studio / Fall 2017 Team: Bryce Brucker, Frank Mader Project involved picking a material of interest to you, and your two group members. Once we selected concrete as our material, we wanted to experiment with light and translucency, and see how we could play with the idea of getting light through the material. Through various rounds of rigorous testing of different translucent materials, such as plexiglass and homemade bioplastic, we determined that the best option is fiber optic cables.


Results


06 PHYSICAL MODELING Campus Plaza / Mixed Use Second Year Studio / Fall 2016 Penn State Campus, University Park PA Plaza design featuring linear seating, unprogrammed lawn space, and an artful rainwater design. Seating runs perpindicular to the main circulation path off site, meant to delineate movement and draw people into the site. An elevated pathway that moves seamlessly over a rain garden is meant to educate users about stormwater management, while not imposing on their movement through the site.
