WATER FRONT DISTRICT BERLIN
This massive urban redevelopment is located within the city center of Berlin, Germay. The project entailed a complete redevelopment of the site, providing all the necessary programs for a completely selfsufficient environment. This old, unused railyard sits north of Berlinâ€™s main train station, Berlin Hauptbahnhof. The site is approximately 50 hectares long and features a canal running along the eastern border, and an elevated rail line on the western border.

T H E MOVING IMAGE
Continuing to develop the Waterfront District Berlin, I choose to focus on one of the main entertainment areas on the southern end of the site. Creating a new entrance and plaza for the existing Hamburger Bahnhof Contemporary Museum of Art, and developing a building for cinema was the main focus. The Moving Image Cinemathek not only provides main theater space for film, but exhibit space, and personal residences for cinema artists. Creating a lively entertainment area that facilitated many different means of watching films, looking at art, and socializing was key in the design.

PILLSBURY CROSSI N G RETREAT Pillsbury Crossing is located just outside of Manhattan, Kansas, and not only is it secluded and quiet, but features an expansive creek. The goal of the retreat was to provide a relaxing, unique and enjoyable experience within the natural setting. The site has both gradual and steep level changes that allowed for site integration, and the separation of public and private realms. The use of natural materials, as well as varying effects of lighting was in direct response to the immediate surroundings.

EGYPTOLOGISTS S T U D Y
This private hideaway, study, and gallery for an Egyptologist is located just across the river in downtown Memphis, Tennessee. The goal of the project was to carve two limestone blocks to form spaces for reading, writing, entertaining and displaying artifacts. Inspiration was grounded in Egyptian progression and directional movement found throughout Egyptian culture and design. Varying degrees of enclosure throughout the two blocks creates a separation between the public and private realms.

The Kansas State University Solar House Project for the Solar Decathlon in Washington, D.C., was a design + build project. Fifth and third year architecture students, as well as faculty, collaborated to create a unique and efficient house. The Solar House featured cozy interior rooms, ample sun-shaded exterior spaces and was completely self-sufficient.
