Death Of The Freeway CAL POLY 2007 - THESIS

└ Entrance and Lobby

└ Central terminal

└ Aerial view from southwest

Location: Los Angeles, CA - 405/105 interchange Overview: A hypothetical study of a future where petroleum prices and availability have forced Los Angeles to adopt more mass transit. A low impact solution is explored to adapt current freeway infrastructure to be used for rail transit, and as a result every interchange in Los Angeles becomes an integrated transit hub. Thesis case study occurs at interchange closest to LAX. └ Aerial view from northeast

└ Site Plan

└ Existing subway line running through terminal

└ Transit hub sections


└ Freeway converted to elevated park

• Existing freeway structure integrated into transit hub • Regional rail, local rail, bus and personal auto are all integrated • New rail lines to run along existing freeway corridor • Portions of freeway converted to pedestrian parks • Pedestrian parks connect neighborhoods divided by freeways • Structural steel trees and trusses are required to achieve necessary spans and interact with geometry of existing infrastructure • Central terminal provides retail and dining • Implemented Revit modeling early on in the process


Pine Cone STANFORD 2012

└ 3D section of auditorium, large classroom, and faculty offices

└ Auditorium

└ Section through atrium


└ Main entrance plaza

Location: Reno, NV - University of Nevada Scope: 40,000 sqft university building for the engineering school. Strict limitations on footprint and building height, as well as sustainability goals provided challenges requiring an interdisciplinary solution. Biomimicry as a design theme. Team: Interdisciplinary teams collaborated for 4 months in a competition judged by industry professionals. Teams were collocated around the world and included 1 architect, 2 structural engineers, 1 MEP engineer and a CM. Design: Our team chose the pine cone as a source of inspiration for biomimicry both formally and functionally. My role as the architect required coordination with all team members from the beginning of concept design. Integration: The team implemented BIM early on so that every discipline could improve collaboration. The Pine Cone team won the Swinerton Biomimicry award at the conclusion of the course after all teams presented their projects.
