Service Brew Process Pub
The main idea of this building is to use the brew process as a lantern to draw people into the pub from the street. To do this, the brew process has been designed as a three story volume encased in glass which allows views of the entire process while guests are in the building. A glimpse of this feature can be seen from the street through the garage door windows. These doors are placed on the sides of the building facing a large public garden to maximize pedestrian attention. Above: Space use diagram Previous page: Early design concept models

I believe it is important for people to make the connection between reading and leisure when visiting the public library. To achieve this, the building has been designed to connect to the adjacent public park as much as possible. By placing a portion of the building below grade and covering the roof with grass, this building mimics the natural shape and flow of a park. These features help draw attention to a great public resource.

MUSEUM TAKASHI TO SHOWCASE THE WORK OF
The purpose of this museum is to showcase the work of Takashi Murakami. The design focuses on blending high end art and retail merchandise, as the artist does in his own work. In order to do this, spaces are arranged on a ken mat system so that each function has its own zone that may merge with another zone related to it either symbolically or functionally. This organization follows the way Murakami thinks about his work. Previous page: images of Takashi Murakamiâ€™s art creations
The high end art gallery spaces and the retail spaces most symbolize Murakamiâ€™s artistic philosophy. Visually connecting these spaces by location and structure type makes sense. The educational portion of this museum, although an aspect of Murakamiâ€™s professional life, is a little distant from his artistic message. To portray this while still connecting it with the other functions of the museum, it has a more solid structure. Art education is the foundation upon which Murakami has his fun breaking the rules about what is high end art and what are exciting items to sell. Having a very solid feeling part of the building that interlaces with the light and free display side of the museum helps get this point across.

I had moved nine times and lived in a total of seven states by the time I was twelve years old. I consider this to be the cause of my passion for places. The result is that I both want to work in a field that creates space and that I want to spend my free time exploring existing spaces. I spent three months in Mallorca, Spain shortly after graduation. I have been casually studying Spanish for a couple of years. The experience of practicing that skill, exploring new places, and meeting people with all kinds of different backgrounds is something I will always cherish.
