01 POINT JUDITH

POND ISLAND The goal of this project was to create an island out of dredge in Point Judith Pond. The concept of this design was to build a research island that focused on creating environments for endangered native Rhode Island birds. By creating these habitats the goal would be to have the species nest, have people observe the species in their natural habitat, pass along awareness and subsequently create more habitats. The island would maintain a very natural feel with relatively undisturbed grounds.

02 INTERVENTION INSTALLATION The idea behind this installation came from my experience with wind, reflection and shape at the site. I wanted to create a piece that would mirror the arc of the branches over the water as well as the dip in the river. I wanted the piece to interact with the wind that moved through the space. I chose an area on the river where there was a lot of overhanging trees so I could connect the mirrors to the ground, as well as the trees, and reinforce the natural arc. By using two sided mirrors, evenly spaced, hanging perpendicular to the stream, observers would see some of the background landscape as well as a reflection of the landscape behind them. By suspending the mirrors on wire and a swivel connector, wind coming through the space would rotate the mirrors, creating new shapes and a 360-degree perspective of the landscape.

03 WILDLIFE REHABILITATION CLINIC

This project was to create a landscape for the Wildlife Rehabilitators Association of Rhode Island. They had just purchased a new piece of property and needed help developing a landscape that functioned for the animals that they work with. The concept of this design was to create a space that felt extremely natural and private. I wanted to design enclosed spaces for the animals by screening with evergreens and large trees. This was achieved by heavily planting the property and using winding paths to create individualized spaces.

EDUCATIONAL AREA This area would allow for the clinic to teach children and guests about the work they are doing. They would have a cage with some of the animals that cannot be released to use as educational tools. By terracing the land with corten steel and lawn it creates a natural amphitheater for lectures and events.


ANIMAL ENCLOSURE AREA The idea behind the animal enclosures is to create a heavily wooded space that allows the animals to rehabilitate in their cages while wild animals are still able to roam. This creates a natural environment that mimics what the animals are accustomed to and creates an easy transition to eventual release.
