Interlock: space/environment/systems My role : team leader, assistant project manager, and student organizer. Conducted studies with four elderly couples to research and test design concepts and applicability to an actively retired target market. Societal Scale Goal: Re-densify urban neighborhoods with a “granny flat� concept, encouraging the development of small, energy producing dwellings in the big back yards of our urban landscapes. This approach allows multiple generations to live on the same land, bringing families together and connecting them to the existing transportation and social infrastructures that already exist. Dwelling Scale Goal: Develop a house that can take advantage of all seasons with flexible interior spaces that enable easy indoor/outdoor living. Emphasize the importance of ADA accessibility and Universal design principles. Furniture and interior details reflect the Iowan culture with furniture made by students and local woods, ceramics made with imprinting prairie grasses, and local community colleges crafting the Universal design kitchen elements.

Wind Rose Ring Interested in the structure and formation of thunderstorms and the role of wind. Project explores updrafts and the way wind is mapped.

Rome Compass A compass based on the Nolli map captures the ideas of wayfinding in the dense urban fabric and the wild overgrown pockets of Rome. Etched and soldered, the compass depicts personally familiar sections of the Nolli map that exist on the edge of rural and urban. (1.25� diameter, brass)

Challenges were working with sterling silver and precise cutting and soldering. (Ring size 9)

Dynamics of Social Spaces

Transformed in one November day. An alley, usually used as a short cut, became a gathering and play space for all ages. The alley’s character was brought into full light with the installation of thousands of handpicked ginkgo leaves. For one day, the alley glowed with the softness of the bright yellow, and paper-thin waxy leaves. Adults and children alike couldn’t resist the urge to toss leaves at each other.

PARK(ing) for People Charlotte had never had a PARK(ing) Day. Pairing this one-day-per-year event with a popular Food Truck Friday was the key to encouraging strangers to chat, to think differently of how parking spaces can be used, and notice how important small things like shade, surface cover, and a buffer from the street can really shape a different place. All materials were borrowed, nothing was thrown away. Plants were sourced from strangers answering a Twitter ad!
