BREAKING THE FAST FOOD CHAIN louisville, kentucky | fall 2012 - spring 2013

American’s know food well, but few understand where it comes from, how it’s produced and distributed, or the unequal access to it. Healthy food and sustainability are hot topics today, but the food industry remains both unhealthy and unsustainable. The lack of access to healthy, local food in cities is causing health of residents to suffer needlessly. Changes are necessary in these communities to incorporate urban agriculture and food education for children. Within the city of Louisville, Kentucky, the California neighborhood suffers from limited food access. Urban agriculture can supply local and healthy produce. Growing food combats the problem, but hands-on education of children about how to maintain gardens and use food produced in their daily diet, is the real solution. Distributing this food to the residents is imperative as well. Here, I’ll introduce urban agriculture in underutilized spaces to provide community gardens, resident education, and food for the needy. My design serves as a prototype for how food can be incorporated into planning of neighborhoods. This education can make an impact on individual health and the onset of climate change. Overall, it seeks to accomplish these goals and begin to ‘break the fast food chain in America.’

BROADWAY COMMERCIAL ZONE

Presence of small shops, fast food restaurants and other businesses.

POTENTIAL SITE #1*

This large open lot (about 23 acres) was the former site of an expansive Philip Morris factory that was demolished over the last decade.

POTENTIAL SITE #2*

This area, called Victory Park, is one of the few open spaces of any size to speak of within the neighborhood. It currently contains activities such as recreation/sports fields, playground equipment, and a large fountain for children to play in during summer time. There is also a small open-program building on site.

PARK + SCHOOL ZONE

This region contains two prominent community parks within the neighborhood which are also both in close proximity to schools. These represent ideal sites within the neighborhood to introduce urban agriculture.

RESIDENTIAL ZONE

Area consisting primarily of smaller shotgun houses, apartment buildings, and duplexes. These are interspersed with churches, schools, and the occasional small business. California Neighborhood, Louisville, Kentucky | Scal *SITE 1 is the largest vacant site in the California neighborhood and is owned by a local developer. Upon further investigation, this developer has already commissioned a design firm to create an extensive mixeduse Master Plan for which they are currently trying to fill spaces. This was a strong option but with so much already underway, and the site sits in a Commercial/Industrial area of the neighborhood. This wouldn’t allow for intimate connection with residents of the community.

Pergola + Solar + Market

*SITE 2 is known as Victory Park and is very small and designed. There is a little building on the site, but it would to be expanded to accomodate any real function.

OAK RIDGE MASTER PLAN oak ridge, tennessee | fall 2012

The Oak Ridge Master Plan was a coordination between our design studio and the City of Oak Ridge to produce a master plan that would illustrate how the city center could develop over the next fifty years. Oak Ridge, dubbed the ‘Secret City’, was rapidly planned and constructed during the heat of World War II. Ultimately, it’s scientists’ discovered and created the nuclear bombs used on Japan. This town’s incredibly unique history and character served as inspiration for this team design project. The Site Inventory and Analysis phase was done as a class, and then we broke down into pairs to be able to present several versions of what we envision for the future of Oak Ridge. We worked together on the concept and design of the master plan, while I also focused on numerous sections and a digital 3D model.

INTERPRETIVE CENTER kodak, tennessee | spring 2012

This Interpretive Center and surrounding site was designed by a team of three students. It serves as a point of arrival and departure for those seeking to explore the Seven Islands Wildlife Refuge, which lies just beyond the site boundaries. The structure was purposefully designed with an angled roof that would project out of the landscape . This way, during rain events the roof would serves as a channel for stormwater, and over time allow for the collection of sediments that would create a unique change over time. Because the idea was so unique, our group researched roof structure extensively to ensure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety and effectiveness. The building and site were designed to harvest rainwater, solar energy, and incorporate other principles of sustainability.

ISLAND FORMATION OBSERVATORY kodak, tennessee | spring 2012

The Observatory was an individual project where we were commissioned to create a space that focused on one unique, natural phenomenon within the Seven Islands Wildlife Refuge. My personal exploration led me to Fluvial Island Formation, or how islands are created within a river or stream. As it was a relatively new concept to me, I spent much time researching to discover the true mechanics of a river system. From there, I launched into a design of a small retreat where an individual could spend a day and night to learn about this formation process. My observatory incorporates eating, bathing, and sleeping methods and, over time, seeks to project how a new island will form because of itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence. It is constructed mainly of materials found within the site so no harm would come to the stream if it ever were to be flooded.

BROOKFIELD COMMUNITY FLOOD PARK brentwood, tennessee | spring 2011

The Brookfield Neighborhood is an upper class area in a suburb of Nashville. It currently has little to no available recreation, and after the 500-year flood that occured only a few years ago, plenty of flood plains. Therefore, in this team project we sought to combine the element of recreation with these spaces that can have relatively little construction. Overall, the plan included an outdoor plaza space for community events and gathering, several community garden areas, walking paths, sportsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fields, and wildlife meadows. Our goal was to create a naturalistic environment that would make people feel welcome in the space. Locations and material choices were extensively explored so that the spaces could be preserved in the event of another flood event.

T.A.P. TOWERS

cincinnati, ohio | spring 2009

The T.A.P. Towers project was created with a team of four for an architectural design and planning competition. The scope of the project was very large as it sought to bring new life to areas of downtown Cincinnati, primarily the region known as Over-The-Rhine. Known as OTR to those in the area, it was dubbed with this name because of the many German immigrants that first settled in the neighborhood. T.A.P. is an acronym our group created meaning TransportationAgriculture-Power. Many locations were chosen as sites for these high-rise buildings that sought to be social, economic, and sustainable beacons within the communities. We incorporated several sustainable technologies and even designed an aerial tram system as a better method of transportation for the local population.

DIAGRAMS + INFOGRAPHICS various locations | fall 2011 - spring 2012

Diagramming is a skill taught early in most design educations and mine is no exception. Most of these works are from an information graphics course, some are from studio design projects as well. It is easy to create simple sketch diagrams by hand, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of an art if one can make them graphically appealing enough to be used in a final presentation capacity. The infographics shown here were created in the same information graphics course and require a variety of software in their creation. Using programs like Grasshopper and Rhino, I created a poster that connects an individual states green house gas emissions with the effects seen regionally. These green house gases come from several sources but I focused mainly on those that are released by vehicle transportation.

PHYSICAL MODELS

various locations | spring 2007 - spring 2012

Creating Physical Models is something I have done since the beginning of my architectural education. A project design cannot be fully understood until one experiments with actually making the buildings, structures, and landscape forms out of real materials. Not only does it serve to give us as designers a better understanding, but also the client, who might only be able to see so much in a set of plans and sections, or a digital model. The selections shown are various models from my education. Some are group produced and constructed, and others are my own individual work. Some are laser-cut and others are hand-cut. I like to experiment with a wide variety of scales, cuts, and materials to achieve different effects. Ultimately, craft and precision are the keys to my model construction.
