Profile After 4 years of the Masters of Architecture program at the University of Kansas, I have become greatly inspired by the versatility of architecture and the impact it can have on a global scale. Architecture can solve things such as environmental and climatic problems, as well as control potential overpopulation within regions. Although architecture is a vast and complex field to study and work in, I consistently find myself challenged to improve day in and day out. Also, the field of architecture has helped open my mind and accept the fact that there are many different solutions for a given objective. I believe that this idea of having an open mind is something that will help me succeed within the field as I am always open to change in this ever-changing field.

Prospect Stacks: Providing a Sense of Security Through Architecture Spring 2019 - Studio Project

6


Site Description: The site we were provided is a suburb that exists about 10 minutes northwest of Downtown Kansas City. Once a proud area, this region is now littered with vacant houses. Unfortunately this is due to people living in fear of the reputation that the region has earned of becoming one of the most crime-ridden areas in Kansas City. However, there are still families that refuse to give up on the region and have made it a goal to restore glory to a once friendly location even though they fear the government has ultimately already given up on the same location. To restore this area to its former glory a sense of community needs to be returned to the area. People have to start coming together in unity instead of remain inside due to fear.

2nd - Separate into a Grid:

After dividing the site into 3 separate functions based upon how much public access each section of the site would gain, I then chose to derive a grid within the site. The grid I decided to lay follow consisted of square plots that were 40 feet in length and 40 feet in width and further divided into increments of 10 feet within the original 40 feet by 40 feet layout. This decision was made in order to maintain an organized layout for the main structural elements of each building.

1st - Divide Site:

I chose to divide the site into 3 sections with the multiresidential housing unit located towards the intersection of 27th Street and Benton Boulevard. This decision was made because the land adjacent to Benton Boulevard is primarily zoned as residential land. A multi-residential housing unit such as an apartment complex will follow the rules of this zoning and compliment the surrounding residential land in a beautiful manner. The community center was designed at the intersection of 27th Street and Prospect Avenue because it is an intersection that sees more visitors and there are more community-oriented buildings located here already such as a police station and another new public building recently built adjacent to where the community center will be located. By placing the new community center at this intersection it will emphasize the sense of community that will help bring this region together.

LAKIN CHILDREN’S CENTER: Spring 2018 - Studio Project

21


22


Solution:

This daycare is designed to stand out as a landmark of the city. This goal is achieved through the building's vertical presence as well as through its park-like setting. Designed next to the hospital and retirement center, Lakin Children's Center works to incorporate intergenerational activities. The park is multifunctional, providing a place of community for the city and providing an isolated place of activity for the children of the daycare.
