DREXEL THESIS PROJECT

DELAWARE BAY RESEARCH + DISCOVERY PROJECT

The continual ecological decline of the Delaware Bay Estuary has brought along environment and economic issues. Once an economical prosperous area with a thriving eco-system the mouth of the Maurice River in Southern New Jersey sits as an area affected by an aquatic industry decline as well as the side effect of its up-land watershed. In an effort to bring awareness to these issues I propose designing a building that combines the research & commercial programs surrounding this fragile ecosystem for educational outreach purposes. Mission + Goals • Promote sustainability through practice and awareness • Control & improve the impact on local and global ecosystem through practice • Create an environment to house and stimulate education programs. • • • • • • • •

Promote future economic prosperity in the local fishing & shellfish industry Create a space that stimulates a sustainable fishing industry for the current and future generations. Support the commercial fishing & shellfish culture that surrounds the Bay, primarily focusing on the towns that surround the Maurice River outlet. Create a functional and aesthetic space that relates to the surrounding community’s rich historical culture. Improve leisure and recreational opportunities for visitors and the surrounding citizens. Create a place that stimulates activities surrounding the Delaware Bay and wetland ecosystem. Support the current research facilities involved with the restoration & improvement of the Delaware Bay’s ecosystem. Provide needed support space for local Universities and ongoing state research programs.

08 Design Inspiration & Resolution: Amalgam of contemporary & traditional Japanese, craftsman & artesian influences. Subtle hierarchies of integrated physical & spatial composition, intimacy of scale & proportion, and visual balance all interact to play upon the user’s conscious experience. Site Considerations: The primary axis of the proposed pavilion is oriented towards views of downtown Missoula & the Clark Fork River. A sightline is generated from within the pavilion to the proposed park entry plaza. Framed openings capture views of the park open space, foliage & hill sides beyond.

GIMMIE SHELTER

WOODLAND CANOPY WINNING ENTRY

Content: The Woodland Canopy is designed as a polymorphic, tension supported structure intended to compliment the natural environment, be constructed of sustainable materials, and have a low impact connection to the site for easy removal. In keeping with “Leave No Trace”principles, the site can easily be returned to its natural condition as the Schuylkill Center’s needs change. Methods & Materials: This shelter is based upon a system of three main components, 1) a floor/sleeping platform covered by 2) a series of ribs or hoops from which a 3) natural fiber canopy can be supported. To its benefit, the lightweight structure is easily manipulated and is highly adaptable. With each site, comes a unique set of parameters. In response, the hoops can be arranged in various linear, curvilinear and circular forms, focusing the attention of the occupant on the natural environment, like a forest torii. The Woodland Canopy offers the erectors the possibility of other final, site specific modifications to further adapt each structure and respect its specific location within the Schuylkill Center. This creates a unique experience each time a new structure is added. All materials when removed or found to be no longer useful are 100% compostable or recyclable.

PHILADELPHIA DESIGN WEEK

[ SPOT ]

WINNING ENTRY

Proposal: to fabricate an abstracted spatial diagram/mixed media exhibit that explores potential solutions, opportunities and strategies to enhance Philadelphia’s existing urban automobile parking infrastructure. Objective: to engage, educate & challenge the awareness of the local resident, commuter & visitor by presenting layers of statistical data, examples & alternate theories on the physical, financial & environmental side effects of automobile parking throughout center city. Methods & Materials: the installation will visually integrate relavent content with architectural and sculptural form. The structural components will be assembled out of reclaimed and recycled wood and composite materials. A composition of projected and fixed images, maps, analytical graphs and text will combine to create an active, kinetic display for both participants and passers by. Content: emphasis will be placed on progressive planning & policy initiatives that seek to mimize the land intensive impact of automobile parking while balancing the practical needs of livability, efficiency and ease of use. Information pertaining to issues such as parking vacancy rates, hidden monetary costs, wasted open space, secondary use of prime, high density real estate, noise and visual pollution, as well as environmental consequences that contribute to heat island effect, storm water run-off and energy consumption will be interwoven with examples of dynamic strategies such as automated parking facilities, transportation oriented developments, car and bicycle sharing programs, and zoning methods that promote pedestrian oriented solutions.

PHILADELPHIA STOREFRONT DESIGN

STIMULUS

The notion of multiplicity of both light and space forms the organizational aesthetic of the proposed window display. We propose to fill the display area with a suspended array of colorful brushed acrylic and polished aluminum panels arranged and concentrated around custom fabricated “light nodes. Several Artemide pendant light fixtures will be strategically positioned among the variable spatial densities. Juxtaposed light sources, suspended two dimensional surfaces and three dimensional cube shapes will simultaneously emit and reflect light from varying spatial arrangements and densities. Contrast, color and saturation will enliven the dialogue between solid and void producing a diverse display that is sure to stimulate the senses.

The project involved the renovation / addition of a Pennsylvania bank barn into a single family residence. As Project Manager I worked in collaboration with multiple consultants and builders in a continuous design development throughout the entire stages of the project. The project maintained a strong attention to detail, incorporating custom designed light fixtures and furniture.

GRAVAGNO RESIDENCE

Located in Wayne PA., this private residence sits on a wooded neighborhood site. Great effort was taken to protect the existing collection of trees. The project consisted of number consultants to include a landscape architect, interior designer and specialized craftsmen. The house uses an exposed reclaimed timber construction to compliment and highlight the owner’s personal art collection. The home incorporates a conservatory, wine cellar, and basement lap pool.

DOWN TOWN PUBLIC MARKET

LANDIS MARKET PLACE

The design converts an existing Newberry’s store into a civic town market located in Vineland NJ’s main street district. Existing 40,000 sf. building consists of 2 levels incorporating multiple food vendors and sit down eateries. A 3,700 sf. addition included a vestibule with a direct connection to rear parking area, elevator, and loading dock. In order to maintain a tight budget the building’s design utilized the existing steel and concrete structure to convey an industrial aesthetic. The existing building underwent an asbestos abatement, a new white roof with day lighting solartubes, as well as an extensive mechanical system reconstruction. As the Project Manager I led the project through all phases of design and construction from schematic design to construction administration. Project entailed working closely with the owner, multiple vendors, and general contractor.

JW PEDERSEN ARCHITECT PC.


The redevelopment project of a major intersection within Vineland, NJ’s Mainstreet District. Plan incorporated the restoration of the existing Landis Theater/ Restaurant, 2 Senior citizen buildings incorporating street level retail services, and an addition to an existing private Catholic high school. My role consisted of generating the concept design and presentation to the local selection committee. Base on this presentation our firm was selected and the first stage “Landis Theater� was then designed and renovated.

CITY OF PORT REPUBLIC

Currently under construction this 3,600 sf. municipal building will contain the city’s clerical department, construction office, town meeting, and court hearings. Situated in a colonial historic town the buildings mass and facade compliments the surrounding materials & aesthetic. My tasks consisted of the design development of the initial schematic design to include material selection and detailing. As the project manager I orchestrated MEP, Structural, Geothermal, Cost-estimate and Geotechnical consultants to develop bidding and construction documentation
