My career goal is to become a licensed architect focusing on energy and sustainable practices. I am currently searching for an internship to gain some practical experience that would improve my design process and better prepare me for a career in the architecture field.

Contrast allows the University of Saint Francis multi-use facility to celebrate surrounding historic buildings. Acting as a counter-point to the Performing Arts Center, the two buildings frame a social plaza. “Green” terraces and daylighting techniques emphasize Fort Wayne’s efforts to revitalize and stimulate the community. In response to the material aspect of the project, concrete masonry is highlighted to show its structural capabilities. Load-bearing walls on the north side rise up through the retail and housing services becoming visible to the exterior space before supporting student housing above. A hexagonal structural grid for underground parking provides ﬂexibility for multi-directional positioning of these load-bearing walls. Apartment-style housing is an attractive feature for students and other residents. Through contrast, this design strives to become a
dynamic asset to the community.

Design graphic skills + visual communication
The skills used to construct these drawings will be useful in any type of design work. Though the same tools are used for sketching, this demonstrated an entirely different way to record and communicate information.
The next phase, using pen on mylar, included landscape and the importance of trees to cast shade, define space, and function as screens. Elements of the final presentation were arranged tactfully to emphasize composition and flow.

Hospital and Wellness Facility - Muncie, IN The design of the medical center references the idea that a medical clinic is intended to promote a person’s mobility. The building is focused on the extension of circulation areas.
Parking areas utililize perforated pavers to allow drainage without sacriﬁcing stability. Exterior corridors curve to track the sun. Light shelves along these corridors shade sun in the summer, while allowing direct sunlight into the space during the winter soaking into the thermal mass of concrete ﬂoor and walls. A roof garden with access from the second ﬂoor gives staff and visitors views of nature while lowering the Solar Reﬂective Index (SRI) of the roof and retaining rainwater onsite. The addition of a trail and multi-use space allows this idea of motion to reach out to all facets of wellness. Therefore, it becomes more than just a place to get you back on your feet. The already healthy client is also encouraged to improve their state of overall wellness.
