MODELS completed in a professional setting Models and physical representations of built forms convey ideas and expressions to clients and reviewers in ways that drawings simply cannot, along with bringing to light certain elements of designs that are not discovered without some kind of construction. I have been involved in working with modeling from initial design concepts to final design pieces for clients to exhibit. The models shown were all built by hand without laser-cut pieces, with help from others only on the topography of the larger models.
DRAWINGS & RENDERINGS completed in a professional setting Drawings are the means of communication in architecture, from preliminary sketch to construction documents. The drawings shown are ones that I have put the majority of work into completing.
OPPORTUNITY CORRIDOR capstone project summary East 55th to University Circle Cleveland, Ohio This project investigated the issues and potentials associated with creating a new roadway connection between Clevelandâ€™s highway system and the University Circle area through the currently proposed Opportunity Corridor project, with a focus on melding this infrastructure with public transit and transit-oriented development. This roadway is just over two and a half miles long and is to be 35 mph through some of the most vacant stretches of Cleveland. This project has the potential to utilize these parcels for development and to bring activity nearer to the five RTA stops in this area, with commuters for the Cleveland Clinic, Case Western University, and University Hospitals driving through here daily. Development opportunities include convenience services, shopping, daycare, and, possibly in the future, housing, offices, and new industry. Other projects that can be combined with this effort are the reconstruction of several RTA stops to ADA standards, completing the Kingsbury Run bikepath, land remediation for reuse, Cleveland Clinic expansions, and creating better access for existing industry.

PROPOSED CORRIDOR AND RELATED DEVELOPMENT
HIGH-SPEED RAIL olympics + train station Chicago Hub Network (partner work) Detroit, Michigan (individual work) In pairs, we were asked to investigate how to begin the High Speed Rail proposal. Our two main findings were a) Americans will need to be introduced to the rail system in a grand way to break some of the car-orientation barrier, and b) the proposed network was disconnected from the existing networks. To combat these issues, we decided that a tri-city Olympic holding in Detroit, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh could be used to both teach area residents how the train system works during a grandiose event and make the first leg of the Chicago Hub network the connection to the existing eastcoast network. Individually, we delved into one of the proposed station cities. I chose to look closer into Detroit as a partial Olympic host. Detroit offered both newer professional sports venues and open spaces available for temporary outdoor events, even within the urban core. The vacant Michigan Central Station could be reactivated as the new train station. Also created was a metro system that could connect the train system, airport, the People Mover, Olympic Venues, and Canada, which could use the existing under-river tunnel, with future phasing connecting to the suburbs.
PORT REDEVELOPMENT regaining clevelandâ€™s waterfront Downtown Cleveland Lakefront, Ohio (group project) This project is a proposal for the redevelopment of the roughly one hundred acre Port Authority site after the move of the port to East 55th Street. In looking at the environmental concerns for this site, we decided to dedicate a large portion of the area to the research and teaching of water quality and remediation. This location has access to both the Cuyahoga River and Lake Erie and could be the cornerstone to future cleaning and reclaiming of Clevelandâ€™s waterfront. To create this learning environment, a research facility is tied into the local universities and Science Center, a wetlands is made available for both study on how natural growth affects remediation and for community enjoyment, and an aquarium in which to share findings. Also included is the proposed train station and bike trail, rerouted and extended Waterfront Line to better access the site and new port, sport center to tie into the stadium, and revenuegenerating program to benefit the Port Authority to make the remaining pieces possible.
ST. PROCOP CENTER repurposing a closed church West 41st St. & Newark Ave. Cleveland, Ohio
ST. PROCOP, CURRENT ST. PROCOP, 1916
For this CSU class about historic religious structures in the city of Cleveland, our final project was proposing redevelopment ideas for one of the closing churches in the area. My choice of structures was St. Procop in the ClarkFulton neighborhood. This church had hard times before its closing, as seen in the photos below, and had to remove its bell towers and central dome because of maintenance versus money issues. The church had also already sold its school to be a Positive Education Program school and its convent to be a halfway home. In investigating this area, I found no need for more residential or commercial space because of the large vacancies of both, and both had the potential to destroy the character of the space. Because of the concentration of education facilities both on and near the site, I decided to create a Resource Center for the neighborhood that would be in walking distance of most of the area schools and many residences. This center would be devoted to providing computer access and classes to the area. This facility could also be linked into the library system and provide a pick-up/drop-off service, along with a permanent reference section.
NEARBY LIBRARIES + THEIR WALKABLE AREAS
ADDITIONAL RESIDENTIAL + SCHOOLS SERVED BY THE NEW CENTER
MAGNETTI MARELLI factory site reuse Veneria Reale, Italy The historic Veneria Reale is a small town near Torino that grew out of the royal Savoy palace of La Reggia and its formal garden and hunting grounds. All are large tourist draws as they were turned into public parks with the dissolution of the monarchy. Adjacent to La Reggia is the acres-large Magnetti Marelli auto parts factory, which will soon be closing its doors, and Veneria Reale wanted input on how to redevelop the site. In my solution, the factory would be divided into smaller, more manageable parcels to develop. Program elements would include larger office and workshop spaces closest to the historic town, transient-oriented housing nearest to the hunting grounds entrance, and open market and permanent housing are in the center. A connection to the riverfront bike and walking path would be made between the existing path and the entrance to the hunting grounds. Also proposed is the reuse of the concrete slabs that both the factory and the fence around the entire fence are made of. These panels could be used as a building material for new structures or as paving for the riverwalk.
FACTORY REUSE STRATEGIES PROPOSED SECTION
CLEVELAND CONDOTEL the new urban neighborhood East 14th St. & Prospect Ave. Cleveland, Ohio The condotel: a merging of the hotel and condo typology. As room ownership is introduced into a structure usually designed for transients, the opportunity for relationships and interactions is amplified. By allowing the employees to have accommodations aggregated within the guest rooms, a neighborhood comfort level and ambiance can occur between the demographics. Informed by labor statistics, the average salaries were used to proportion both the room sizes and the worker-per-guest ratios to number their rooms per floor.
EX-MACHELLI SITE new urban project Viale Corsica & Via Circondaria Firenze, Italy Sitting in ruins just north of the Florence train station, the Ex-Maccelli site is the location of the once great slaughter yards where the new underground high-speed station is to be built. The rest of the site is developed into a refreshed urban fabric, taking cues from existing roadways and pedestrian routes. The Italiansâ€™ love of interiorized courtyards and parking is also included along with much needed public green space. The two classes of exterior space are separated by level, with the public accessible by ground and private via the buildings.
ARTIST IN RESIDENCE artist live + work space South Water St. near Main St. Kent, Ohio the Artist in Residence building aims to attract the college artists that are in Kent but want a more creation accommodating apartment. Each unit contains an individual full studio area for the artist to work, at any time of the day. The lowest two floors contain a gallery for them to display their work, either for show or for profit, along with a full art supply store. The exhibition area is a collection of alcove-like spaces so the artist can change the lighting, setting, and background color to work best for their pieces.
MID-RISE CONDOMINIUM condos, amenities, circulation Port Stanley, Ontario The mid-rise condo is situated on the waterfront of port stanley, along with other similar buildings and was to contain four double-height units, plus lobby and roof terrace. As this was our first tall building, I grouped the program into vertical shafts of solids and voids to amplify the vertical aspects of the buildingâ€™s exterior. Though the number of forms adds complexity, their individual simplicity allows them to become one cohesive structure.
