HAND SKETCHES PLANNING STUDIO | FALL 2015 The following pages are filled with sketches and hand renderings that I have compiled over the past two years. Some of which I have pulled from class assignments and some are from my everyday journal. Page 6 displays a project that I worked on in my Studio and Computer Graphics class during my freshmen year of college. We used Ludlow Avenue in Clifton to learn how to draw sections, elevations, plans and perspective drawings in my Studio course, which you can see in the Ludlow Avenue Place Collage. Then, in Computer Graphics, we made street-level and birds eye view renderings of Ludlow Avenue using Sketch Up. Finally we learned to use Photoshop by placing reallife objects into our Sketch Up rendering.

MT. ADAMS NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING STUDIO | SPRING 2016 In my first year spring semester studio course, my class was divided into groups of three to complete a neighborhood analysis. Each group chose a neighborhood within the city of Cincinnati, OH. My team focused on Mount Adams. Throughout the semester we worked together and individually to collect data and analyze the different aspects of the community. We presented our research and plans through ArcGIS maps, hand drawn maps, infographics and sketches. This series of assignments taught us the basic principles of planning design and graphic communication skills.

YELLOW BUS SHELTER STUDY Clifton

PLANNING STUDIO | SUMMER 2017 This past Summer semester, the goal of my Studio course was to find the most suitable sites to implement Yellow Bus Shelters in Cincinnati. In conjunction with the University of Cincinnati’s upcoming bicentennial in 2019, the University is celebrating its two hundred year relationship with the city by planning, designing, building, and installing bus shelters for students in selected neighborhoods around the city. Our studio was the first out of three studios to start planning these shelters. These shelters will start to be implemented in Avondale,Clifton,Corryville,CUF, Mt. Auburn and West End because these neighborhoods surround the University, then hopefully grow to other parts of the city.

Shelter Site After looking at CPS bus route data, we chose ten out of 22 bus stops in Clifton to study. We narrowed it down to these ten bus stops because they had more than 5 kids at each stop. We felt that stops with under 5 kids would get movable signs, stops with 6-15 students would get a shelter and stops with above 15 students (anchor stops) would get a bigger version of the shelter. We decided on the ten more important criteria to rank each site, and then found the most suitable sites to use. We were able to rank each criteria by using GIS maps (two examples to the right) and site visits. The three charts below are the suitability charts for the three best.

CO OP EXPERIENCE UPTOWN CONSORTIUM | FALL 2017 During my first CO-OP at Uptown Consortium, one of my tasks was to create a topographical model for a site that was in the early stages of being planned. The purpose of this model was to display the existing site elevations so that a Design Review Committee could understand the topography before setting design principles for the new development. This 48 in x 24 in. model was cut, by hand, from foam core by myself and two others. Another project that I was given was a simple summary sheet of Uptown’s census data. Using the 5-year estimate data from 2015 I created Info-graphics to present some of the most important information for Uptown’s population.

the growth rate of Hamilton County

Over the past five years, sale price per parcel in Uptown neighborhoods has grown at an average annual rate of 7.2 percent, more than 2.5 times the rate of growth in Hamilton County. Uptown generates more than $14,000 in property tax revenue per acre, while the balance of the City of Cincinnati (excluding Downtown) generates just over $8,000 per acre.

CO OP EXPERIENCE THE CATALYTIC FUND | FALL 2017 Last fall I interned with the Catalytic Fund in Covington, KY. Their mission is to revitalize the river cities of Northern Kentucky to encourage the migration back to the urban core. As one of their tactics, each year they organize an urban living tour called Beyond the Curb. This tour showcases the various housing options within each of the river cities: Ludlow, Covington, Newport, Bellevue and Dayton. I created the map on the left for the tour pamphlet to show the best walking path between the homes. After the event, I mapped the zip codes from which the attendees came.
