[ SANCTUARY of the HOLY TRINITY ] The Sanctuary of the Holy Trinity has attracted pilgrims regionally and from afar for over nine centuries. Today, the sanctuary is the only one within the Catholic Church that is dedicated to the Holy Trinity. Pilgrims make a yearly trek to the grotto both on foot and by vehicle. The sanctuary sits tucked into the side of Mount Autore in the Lazio region of Italy. The sanctuary, while embedded into the park, does not currently draw from the valuable local water and food production resources because of its accessiblity. The site and its associated program are strongly controlled by seasonal change. Using design guidelines, the focus of the redesign of the sanctuary site is to create stronger connections between the sanctuary and the larger park while also facilitating greater movement within the site. Ultimately, the new sanctuary design aims to increase tourism to the sanctuary and to allow pilgrims to be able to access and enjoy the holy site throughout all seasons while being careful to preserve its religious character. This project was completed with: peter ciepluch, brett davis, frances fresina, peter graves, lucas frey, cerys heroman, gregory hingle, tanner perrin, & megan roussel. 6 . Kyle Jacobson

SANCTUARY PILGRIMAGE PATH

The pilgrimage pathway from the parking lot to the sanctuary is a major focus of the site design. The pathway is widened to promote better circulation of pilgrims traveling in opposite directions. Vendors are removed from the pathway and embedded into the topography. Safety measures are put into place to protect the path from uphil erosion while establishing path boundaries through seat walls and railings.

PARKING

PATH ENTRY TERRACE

PLAZA

The existing parking lot is transformed into a new space that promotes more efficient vehicular and pedestrian circulation. The new pedestrian plaza seperates vehicles and pilgrims. The plaza embeds vendors, restarants and rest areas into the natural topography. This seperation of spaces gives pilgrims somewhere to rest before or after taking the path to the Sanctuary, and encourages vendor use during all seasons.

[ FRAMEWORK ] Coastal Lousiana is one of the most dynamic and constantly changing physical regions in all of the world. This project explored, through the process of regional environmental planning, the feasibility of designing and planning for hazard resilient communities within Coastal Louisiana. Large scale site analysis was completed on natural processes, human activities that have impacted the environment, and landscape typologies as a groundwork for site proposals. The site proposal looks at soil borrow pit sites within the region and how they can be used as a mechanism to promote the reestablishment of native ecologies and create diverse recreational opportunites. A plan is devised to help the Army Corps of Engineers to understand how to excavate sites to promote wildlife habitats ecosystems. Using this information an EcoPark was designed at an existing borrow pit site in Orleans parish.

The US Army Corps of Engineers is currently removing clay material from hundreds of borrow pit sites in coastal Louisiana to rebuild the hurricane protection system. After excavation, many of these sites are left abandoned. When soil is removed from these sites, the natural processes and ecosystems are altered or destroyed. The focus of this project is to create a framework for excavating new borrow pits that will leave the sites with ecological and physical value and complexity. Three borrow pit sites, one existing and two planned, within the land bridge in Orleans Parish are analyzed to create a system of borrow pit sites that will increase local wildlife habitat for the 340 birds species that nest locally and to promote regional ecosystem restoration through the system of sites. A framework of ecological and physical infrastructures are determined for each site through an analysis of each site’s characteristics. A design for the existing borrow pit site along Paris Road was completed to create a destination that provides recreational opportunities for the local neighborhood while reintroducing ecosystems that were previously lost through the design of new ponds at varying water depths.

[ design objectives ] 1. Establish range of native habitats and ecosystems. 2. Promote regional ecosystem restoration. 3. Use site to advance environmental education and ecosystem establishment. 4. Create diverse recreational opportunities. 5. Major and secondary pathsystem for different recreation activities. 6. Site becomes urban fishing destination. 18 . Kyle Jacobson

[ FRAMEWORK ] North Lake Charles waterfront is located along the Upper Calcasieu Estuary in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The goal of this project is to transform the neighborhood waterfront into a space that reconnects the surrounding neighborhood to the river while reconnecting the urban ecology that has been lost due to commercialization back into the larger landscape systems . The intial design process included careful identification of environmental, social, physical, and functional issues of the site and its surrounding context. These analystical findings were used to produce a framework that reconnects the green infrastructure back into the Calcasieu River watershed while creating a waterfront park that is unique to South Louisiana that residents can use and enjoy.

[ analysis . circulation ] Neighborhood vehicular circulation creates little connection between the neighborhood and access points to the Calcasieu River. This lack of connection in conjunction with the industrial corridor along the rivers edge creates a great divide between the people in the neighborhood and the nearby estuary.

[ connections ] Linear connections direct flows of water, people, and habitats throughout the site. They are organized through neighborhood connections, earthworks, pathways, and bioswales. They include allee and hedge plantings, meadows, paths, trails, boardwalks, constructed wetlands, and architecture.

[ typologies ]

north lake charles waterfront . REconnect

Diverse typologies througout the site create a patch-like mosaic of surfaces to promote use, habitat, and stormwater management. They include marshes, constructed wetlands, various woodlands, meadows, piers, sport surfaces, recreation fields, and open space.

[ hydrology ] The waterfront park allows tidal water level fluctuation from the river to enter the site and form brackish marshes in low wetland areas. The formation of the constructed wetlands helps to mitigate water entering directly into the neighborhood during a flood scenario.

Currently neighborhood runoff enters directly into the Calcasieu River through three engineered outlets within the neighborhood. The waterfront master plan adds eleven green street bioswales to the neighborhood that carry runoff into five different wetland areas that filter and clean the water before it enters the river.

[ america’s wetland discovery center ] The American’s Wetlands Discovery Center is an integral part of the design and major stakeholder for the waterfront park. The AWDC includes both a Nature Center and a Botanical Garden in addition to many gathering spaces, educational areas, demonstration gardens, and a vessel docking station for further touring and exploration of the surrounding estuary and wetlands. The AWDC is centurally located in the park at a major access point from Interstate 10.

[ recreation piers ] The southwest portion of the masterplan contains three earthwork/pier structures that contain recreational (basketball, tennis, and volleyball) courts. The courts are grouped onto each individual pier to create a tournament-like atmosphere. The piers jut out over the river and tidal marsh below to create a layering of ecological and human function within the space. Each pier is designed to allow light to penetrate through it to form a thriving ecology below.

MARIGNY BYWATER

[ FRAMEWORK ] The Faubourg-Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods in New Orleans, Louisiana are some of the oldest and most decorated neighborhoods in the entire city. A framework was created for the neighborhood and its context to fully analyze and understand the systems within the site. The large scale site analysis is used to create a site proposal for an open space within the neighborhood. The site design focuses on the relationship between the neighborhood, river, new park space designed by Hargreaves Associates opposite the levee, and the levee while serving both residents and tourists. The site design uses specific program and is designed with the understanding that it will function as an interstitial open space for the new park and neighborhood.

The location in which the site design is proposed is a 1,100’ long x 200’ wide open space at the corner of Chartres St. and Piety St. in the Bywater neighborhood. The long stretch of open space backs up to a 10’ tall concrete levee wall protecting the neighborhood from the Mississippi River. The site is unique to New Orelans in that it has topography at slopes greater than 10% on parts of the site. The levee wall is the major boundary along the southern edge of the site and Chartres St. forms the northern boundary.

[ site design goals ] 1. Maximize the open greenspace within the park. The Marigny-Bywater neighborhood has very limited usable open space. 2. Create connection nodes beween the neighborhood and the levee. The connection points serve as the major plazas within the park as well as serve as locations for bridges that span the levee providing access to the Mississippi River and Crescent Park. These nodes are located to make linear connections to Piety St. and Gallier St.. 3. Use existing topography and create new graded landforms that are inhabitable and unique to New Orleans. 4. Create many different spaces within the park to encourage varied and multifunctional use.

THE BOX . THE SITE . THE GROUND . THE SYSTEM . THE LANDSCAPE The focus of this studio was on the making and unmaking of an object, a wooden box. The making of the box was followed by a series of extractions, voids, and slices. The newly formed objects were then adjoined by a datum and combined to make a site. Systems were then introduced to the site to form a highly connected and dynamic landscape. The language of this studio was limited to basic words in the design catalogue such as: space, volume, line, rhythm, solid, and void. This language was used to assemble a stable platform for the fundamentals of design.
