This train station design in Anderson, SC focuses on the experience of the traveler. The journey is not over when the train stops, as the threshold between the train and the station is a boardwalk platform with an open central staircase that carries light from the street level to the train level.

spring 2011 asheville, sc with doug hecker’s 4th year studio

AVL_? is a study of the history, demographics, climate, and culture of the city. VCANT_? explores the qualitative and quantitative definitions of vacancy and how vacancy relates to asheville. INDX_ is an inventory of all 287 vacant sites in the city. WHAT_IF? montages potential provocactive designs for these vacant sites. 6 8 4

fall 2011 asheville, nc with katie mccraw This project is a proposal to cover all rooftops in Asheville with a green system by the year 2030. I worked on all renderings and graphics shown.

The aim of this project is to drape a second level onto the city that embodies Asheville’s priorities of sustainable living. It provides green roofs, gathering spaces, vegetable gardens, and other spaces that benefit the environment. There are 1,524,843 square feet of rooftops in downtown Asheville. These rooftops could collect 35,404,962 gallons of water a year and save up to 30% on yearly energy costs.

TOWER

Considering Greenville’s historic industrial architecture, a smokestack reminiscent tower seems appropriate to provide a landmark for the area. Using copper and concrete, the tower is abstracted and sculptural yet also provides restaurant space, a viewing area, and parking below.

RETAIL

This shed roof design allows for gallery shopping access on both the lower and upper bridged units. The ordered facade is broken by irregular light penetrations in the roof casting shadows down into the sunken sculpture garden. site aerial

This mixed-use project at the current amtrak station in Greenville includes housing, retail, and a new train station. Responding to historical Greenville, it is marked by its industrial aesthetic and smoke-stack reminiscent tower.

HOUSING

Inspired by the German Werkbund housing, with a priority of below-unit parking, these apartments create an urban feel with rooftop gardens and bedroom balconies. It includes the neighborhood amenities of shared greenspace and playing courts.

SANAA S HOUSE analysis fall 2013 raleigh, nc with scott keyes

detail model

These model analysis were a part of a study of the Japanese firm, SANAA, made up of Sejima Kazuyo and Ryue Nishizawa. At the core of the analysis was the philosophy that almost everything one knows about architecture he or she learns within the first few years of his life. The S House, located in Okayama, Japan, glows like a Japanese lantern. It shows SANAA’s Japanese influences by creating a large space for many generations of a family on the top floor, as well as utilizing folding wood louvers to transform the space.

NCMA performing arts center

fall 2013 raleigh, nc

The NCMA Performing Arts Center is a black box theater, movie cinema, and music academy. The black box and cinema form a central cube that is wrapped in a C-shaped academy. The longer wing of the “C” extends into the tree-line beyond. The entry is visible from Blue Ridge Road and sits on grade to create a humble, low-lying entrance that contrasts with the smokestack. The visitor is directed through the lobby to either the black box upstairs or cinema downstairs. The lobby also opens to a courtyard that contains views into the NCMA meadow.

Terraced seating descends from the courtyard into the landscape, connecting the center to the NCMA park and contrasting with the linear wings of the academy. The lobby is wrapped in an ipe screen that acts as a shading device on the east and west sides and also creates beautiful light and shadow. The C-shaped academy is also primarily glass with ipe panels where the program requires. Ipe was chosen for its durability, long life, and dimensional stability for the vertical screen. The warmth of the ipe contrasts with the clean white interiors.

HAINT BLUE spring 2010 wilmington, nc with prof. dan harding, jd gutermuth, james baxley, and lauren martinez first design + build

of the bottoms creative inquiry

An architectural folly won by Dan Harding, this design+build project at the Cameron Art Museum recalls antebellum haint blue superstitions as it sits on a Civil War battlefield. Built in three days, this project was an introduction to craft for the Bottoms Creative Inquiry team. It was also a lesson in the value of building first, designing second. The knowledge we gained from a “quick and dirty� weekend construction was invaluable to future design decisions at the Bottoms Fields.

THE BOTTOMS master plan fall 2011 clemson, sc with james baxley, aaron bowman, jd gutermuth, william craig, kaitlyn pahel, bradley phillips, and adam roark This project is creating a vision for the future of Clemson’s historic fields. I aided in the planning design with our team and created shown site plans.

The farm was in need of a master plan when the Creative Inquiry started addressing their storage needs in 2009. After semesters of realizing their vision and needs, the student-led team finalized a master plan that includes a future barn, bike trail and walking path, all considering the existing butterfly market and existing slat-wall aesthetic.

LAW ENFORCEMENT CENTER

fall 2012 Cummings & McCrady, Inc. Project Architect: Benjamin Whitener

The Law Enforcement Center Sheriff’s Office in Charleston is in the construction document phase and scheduled to be built within the year. The exterior is a unique metal panel system, stucco, and curtain wall system. The design is simple and cost effective. My efforts included the modeling and rendering of interior and exterior spaces, coordination with consultants, site verification, as well as drawing and revising construction documents.

PRIMARY PLAYHOUSE

spring 2013 Life of an Architect Playhouse Competition while at Cummings & McCrady, Inc.

23

The foundation of childhood creativity, primary colours, are the building blocks of this playhouse. Red, yellow, and blue corrugated translucent polycarbonate sheets provide a cover that catch a child’s eye. An alternating white PVC staircase is the jewel of the exterior. The staircase responds to every child’s urge to climb, but safely provides an 8” rise for small legs. On the deck, a child can take advantage of the 45 degree slanted roof with a matchcar race or by sliding a message below. The main floor is ideal for meeting, playing, or drawing on the built-in desk. Slat walls and operable polycarbonate window awnings provide ample sunlight. However, the polycarbonate and PVC roof provides a partial envelope of protection from the elements. The back wall and corner have an interior acrylic covering which creates a weather proof closet for kid storage without sacrificing openness. The alternating staircase acts as both a window and shelf from the interior. The Primary Playhouse is playful, unique, and easy to construct. It is fun that kids of any age will enjoy in their backyard! I designed and produced all documents of this competition entry submission while working at Cummings & McCrady Architects.

The sculpture exaggerates the brewing process of tea, meaning to take the trivial, yet peaceful moment of enjoying a cup of tea into a grandiose, drawn-out experience. It considers all five senses as the water actively runs over the dripping tea bags, creating a mixed aroma of camomile and chai, visually dying a white canvas, forming rich textures, and producing a warm drink.

A threshold to the past this 1840s door, hinged in the corner of the room creates mystery. The viewer is given a sneak peak to the past through the peep hole. spring 2012

SECRET

CUBEN

COLOR

CRISIS

“Cuben Color Crisis” is a sculptural response to Lee III, Clemson’s new architecture building. Our new “home” is harshly white and sterile. The walls are a blank canvas, waiting for the invasion of creativity. The cube begins this explosion of color into the building - sometimes in a stealthy manner, sometimes quite undisguised. Both a critique and an opportunity, the “Cuben Color Crisis” has escaped its architectural cube and begun its mission on Lee III. spring 2012

MATERIAL MASQUERADE

29

“Materials in disguise” is an installation comparing materials with their more economical commercial replications. The pixelation of wood vinyl samples on wood or plexiglass squares on glass recalls the technological world that allows for such realistic material duplication. spring 2012
