JUSTIN OCAMPO


What truly motivates my drive to become designer is building a relationship with the end user through intelligent design choices. While studying at UNLV, the variety of projects only helped me to begin to see the breadth of the Landscape Architecture profession has to offer. I hope to oneday lead my own team to create striking projects leave a statement. There are some firms making headlines, but I would like to help and bring more attention, and demand for the profession. Elsewhere, Landscape Architecture is part of the political network. I hope to help bring it home. Enclosed is a collection of work representing the roots and begining of my journey. These projects should demonstrate dedication to the overall project aesthetics and attention contemporary issues related to the profession.

Instructor Steven Clarke

The Community Garden began as a design charrette to establish and generate potential key concepts for the plan. Plans were refined to a collaborative plan for the site. Recycling and reuse inspired the site and pushed for creative uses of materials and design techniques. It was important to organize the elements of the Garden to promote a healthy lifestyle and act as a agent for sustainability. A large Production zone to take advantage of the bountiful Sun allows for comfortable planting for everyone. An ordered Learning zone in the quieter end of the Garden creates a controlled learning enviornment. The Celebration zones areto take in the atmosphere and relax. The Waste Recovery zones complete the cycle and encourage reuse.

Taking advantage of the existing site layout, the production of the garden is maximized by the addition of 31 Fruit Trees and a Food Forest. The landscape slopes to the North to the parking lot allowing for the opportunity to provide a terraced planting to reflect the site’s surrounding outcropping. The plan sits around the existing sculpture park and dilapidated water filtration plant. The design proposes a cohesive interaction throughout the entire site by making it so that future endeavors like farmer markets, community run cafes, and small scale events and gatherings become part of the neighborhood fabric.

Instructor Cecilia Schafler

The UNLV Film Institute creates a unique interaction between the Strip and the University. Located on Harmon Avenue, the Film Institute displaces the intermural field to reach for the attention of the tourist audience.

Public programming like the film museum and library help create a hub that could lead to futher development along the Harmon Corridor.

Students sit inbetween and blend the public and private spaces. Proximity to the library and professional studios help students grow.

Private studio and film development is availabe to third-party production teams in the Eastern studios. Along with ample parking for trailers, the accomodations for production teams are high priority.

The project connects with the rest of the campus with a covered walkway.This corridor acts as a lifeline for future university developments. Adjunct Instructors: Eric Strain and Drew Gregory

Instructor Cecilia Schafler

An overlooked site at UNLV, this corridor feeds the popular Alumni Walk and is a frequent drop off point for UNLV Shuttle Bus and other vehicles. As a high traffic, high transient corridor, the site can be activated and become a

more experience driven space. This unique space can flourish with shade allowing for space to read, study, and collaborate. Spaces that act as purely transitional spaces leave out the opportunity to interact and generate conversation. Spaces that help foster growth and become part of the learning experience should be fundamental do university planning and design.

From the primary benchmarking indicators Las Vegas ranks in the top 1/3 cities with funding, but in the bottom 1/3 for mode share and education. The percentage of high school and college graduates between the zip codes are relatively close. The percentage of high school and college degrees differs by one percent in each category. Both are below the national and state averages. The lack of public educational facilities in the regions could possibly be a contributing factor in the low graduation rates amongst high school and college Public Driver’s Driver’s Walk to graduates.

Statewide, Nevada is heavily concentrated within its southern tip at Clark County. The collective cities in Clark County yield about 70% of Nevada’s population. Nevada is growing steadily and can see a positive boom, if action is done to prove the area is a fit place to live. The nation itself has been fairly consistent according to data received from the Census. Because of its size and lack of density, as compared to other states, Nevada fails to compete in population density. Nevada dropped four places from last year in millionaires per capita.

Throughout the complete research of housing types by units there is a clear trend; there are more people living in one unit homes with a detached garage. This trend overall make it hard for places to become more public transit orientated because of way these units are arranged and spaced apart.

There are over 20 bus routes that pass through the City of North Las Vegas and the City of Las Vegas. A few of these routes lead to the Las Vegas Strip and areas of the Vegas Valley. The possible expansion of the existing bus routes could allow for improved connections between the points of interest, historical sites and bike routes providing less need for vehicular transportation. There is also considerably more bus stops and bus routes in downtown Las Vegas, than in the City of North Las Vegas. For example, creating identifiable connections from the existing bus stops along Washington Ave. to the Pioneer Trial extending outward to the Bonanza Trail and Summerlin areas.

Housing Types by Unit

The zoning map shows two commercial districts in both the City of Las Vegas and City of North Las Vegas around the area of their respective city hall. In North Las Vegas there are several areas zoned for redevelopment including additional commercial space, expansion of the casino corridor, and additional medium to high density residential areas. This means more people living in or near these redevelopment areas and expansion of existing infrastructure, to support a more dense residential population. The link between the redevelopment of these two cities is along Las Vegas Blvd., where the map shows public land, which includes the area around Cashman Field. The majority of the residential housing surrounding this commercial corridor are single families with areas of medium to high density. There are more existing areas of medium to high density housings in the downtown area of the City of Las Vegas, but the City of North Las Vegas zoning map appears to show plans for more zones of medium to high density residential.

ent ertainm re, ent o cultu

- Nationally, 8.43% of people don’t own vehicle where density per square mile ranges from 4,000-10,000 people and around 25% of people don’t own vehicle where density per square mile is over 10,000. (N.H.S.T. Report)

Neighbo rhood access

Commercial development

- 68% of housing in 89101 is medium or high density residential units.

Internalized Housing

- In Portland, Oregon the money that would have been spent on one mile of freeway was used to build their entire bicycle network.

- There are 40 schools between both zip codes.

- The city of North Las Vegas is planning additional medium and high density residential units in 89030.

- In Copenhagen the addition of a cycle track decreased vehicular traffic between 9% and 10% while increasing bike traffic on the cycle track by 18% to 20%.

Transportation

- As density increases, the city will need additional transportation alternatives to reduce the strain on roadways.

Coming from North Las Vegas, I could take the 219 bus on Craig Rd to Pecos Rd. then transfer to the 111 bus. I can then take the 111 bus to Stewart Ave. and transfer to the 215 bus. I can then reach the BTC by traveling on the 215 bus route. Once the trail bridge is completed in 2013, I will be able to ride my bike along the Las Vegas Wash Trail to Gowan Rd. and Pecos Rd. Then head south till I hit the proposed cycle track on Washington Ave. turning west, and then heading south on the proposed bike lane on Las Vegas Blvd. Thus connecting me to the current bike lanes reaching the BTC.

This new route would enable me as a biker to cross the entire city from east to west along a protected path.

I would take the trail until Boulder Highway, and then leave the trail and use the existing bike lanes to the Express stop on Dalhart St. I could also stop at Sahara Ave. and Boulder Highway and take either the Boulder Highway Express or the Henderson and Downtown Express. My bike would be stowed in the racks at the rear of the bus and I would ride the Express to the BTC.

Radiant park Spring 2012 Design Development

Instructor Daniel Ortega

Radiant Park is an urban park designed to excite and entertain all users of the Las Vegas Strip. Radiant Park, at 30 acres, pulls together many programming elements that give users the chance to escape the busy casino floor for something more natural. Research into the history of the Strip was made so that the park can remain timeless for future generations. The adaptive nature of the programming allows for functionality even in the hottest months. The mass plantings and large lawns help cool the neighboring paving. Tourists walking in the height of Summer will find sanctuary and entertainment free of distractions.
