1219 House Addition moberly, mo hand drawing, model, 3D homebuilder

This design/build project is the addition of a master suite, car port, vestibule and 3,000 SF deck (1,000 SF covered). As the suite was nestled into a corner of the dwelling, it involved a complicated roof design that could handle Missouri winters and rainfall. A challenge that presented itself throughout the project was to convince those involved to accept unconventional designs, new materials and methods. As the designer and leader in the construction phase I managed labor and acquisition of materials, thus maintaining tight control of the project’s budget and quality.

wind research lab

Nature Oberservatory

The plot on the site for the observatory will be on a raised portion between two places dedicated to the observation of phenomena. While it seems appropriate to correlate between those two places the location also proves best for the collecting of wind as it is at the highest portion of the site. The temperature difference between the highway and the site aids the air pressure. Another factor that creates higher amounts of wind movement is the elevation. As air moves across the freeway towards the hill it “’piles up’ [at the base] and causes a high pressure area upwind of the object. By inertia, the air tends to continue on over and around the object, thus creating a low pressure area downwind” (Benjamin Evans, Natural Air Flow Around Buildings, 1959). The location is also optimal because there is very little that can obstruct the wind such as trees, bluffs, hard-edged buildings, etc. 1/8” = 1’

In the program of this building five professors in five fields of study will be brought together in an interdisciplinary research facility in order to address the issues that face the world in energy and sustainability. The building has have five labs for each field of study with central offices located to foster collaboration on shared issues. The site is heavily wooded and rests in a valley in st. Louis, missouri. The public areas are designed to facilitate the instruction of groups of all ages who will come to learn about current energy and sustainability issues. Visiting researchers and experts will also be able to come and reside for extended periods of time to study and share their knowledge with others. form finding

finnish cultural center

Suomen Heart new york city, ny revit, model, sketch

This project is a Finnish Cultural center in New York. While an academic exercise, I was able to meet with the director of the current Finnish Cultural Foundation of New York. With the studio taking place in Finland, the design is embedded with Finnish culture. The central light-well is indicative of Finland as the long fought-over prize between Russia and Sweden. The wooden sculptural weave that lines the light-well represents Finland’s long tradition and use of wood, and the beauty of Finnish culture that has survived through time.

picnic pavilion studio 8

revit, autocad, model

Design-Build university city, mo

This pavilion, built of redwood, is a design/build project located in a small park in the St. Louis, MO area. The pavilion was to provide shelter for picnics and parties. It was a group project in design and construction. Our studio group performed the design and construction work. My prior experience enabled me to lead in many of the activities. My experience, combined with that of some of the other students, ensured self-performance of many activities that would have otherwise required sub-contracts. Our use of computer software expedited the construction document process and allowed us to precut almost every piece of material in a more controlled environment. Doing so helped us to deliver the finished pavilion within our tight schedule.

bathroom rethought

revit, model

Bathroom

As I began this project I looked at how the bathroom could be designed differently. I concluded that far too many bathrooms are dark and closed to the rest of the home. I decided to turn the bathroom inside-out. Because of its extroverted design the bathroom allows users to be better connected with their home and each other, whether using the bathroom or not. The undulated surface mimics stratified rock faces and creates beauty with water and light. The material is a translucent plastic. The translucency serves practical and aesthetic purposes. The glass is switchable, meaning that at the flip of a switch the transparent glass instantly turns opaque, allowing users the option of privacy. The bathroom is ideal for a city loft.

gluing posts Because of this project’s uniqueness, I was forced learn almost everything from experienced woodworkers and books. The wood that was used was hard maple that was milled in north-central Missouri. I learned basic ideas from other already-built cribs and combined some of them while inserting some of my own designs. There has not been a project since that has been quite as challenging.
