Students, teachers, administrators, and citizens participated in a design workshop to help brainstorm ideas for their communityâ€™s new agricultural center. Designers and students focused on human and animal circulation as well as learning environments that supported agricultural teachings. The communitysâ€™ ideas were reworked and translated into a graphic master plan.
critique Designers met twice with school administrators and city council to finalize the building footprint, circulation, and programatic elements. Construction begins within a year.

The environment has rightfully earned long-awaited recognition from the American conscience. Earthworks park honors this new, green mentality by offering a completely natural park. Every playscape, path, and pavillion are constructed using native and naturally-found materials. Common earth provides the backbone of the park. Rolling hills, sloping terraces, and climbinb mounds replace unsustainable, petroleum-based products. A foil to the concrete and smog, Earthworks park offers metro atlantans a unique introduction to the terra firma beneath their feet.

The URG Design Competition was a weekend long charrette where designers were asked to develop a high end plaza adjacent to the proposed stadium for the Orlando Magic. Our design creates a grand hotel entrance that leads to a sunken amphitheater with a suspended stage backed by a waterfall. Fine dining and retail space flanks the entrance and a scalloped, LED-lit fountain faces the main street.

The Terraces is a mixed-use development directly off the Atlanta Beltline. This five-acre site proposes layered buildings to allow for maximum sunlight and wind ventilation with pedestrian cut-throughs that lead from the beltline into an existing park.
Low maintenance sedum extends the buildingâ€™s roof life.
Public cut-throughs channel circulation without distrupting interior functions.
Private terraces flare outward for residential and office occupants.
The city of Atlanta requested a specific building square footage for five different uses: retail, office, residential, utility, and parking. Below, each of The Terracesâ€™s five floors is graphically accounted for in a breakdown by use.
