Nashville, Tennessee; Sketch-up, ULI Urban Design Competition Arc GIS, Adobe Creative Suite Jan. ‘14_Collaborative The Lower Dell responds to the challenges currently facing Sulphur Dell and the Nashville metropolitan area. Flooding, creating profit for landowners, and the poor health of the region can be resolved when considered cooperatively. The Lower Dell is a model neighborhood for Nashville, balancing ecological, urban, and human health. Civic leaders in Nashville will apply the strategies introduced in The Lower Dell to suitable sites throughout the region. This ecological, urban, and human balance is the foundation for a prosperous future Nashville.

Development phasing is timed with the implementation of flood mitigation strategies to provide resilience.

Urban design: The Lower Dell: Nashville in Balance

Currently, the flooding from the combined sewer system and Cumberland River renders almost the entire neighborhood unsafe for development.

Initial research explored improving the cooling performance of ventilated skins by manipulating the geometry of the ventilated cavity. The “turbulator” design has corrugations, which slow down cavity air to increase convection and lower radiative heat transfer.

Fifth Year Thesis Project Jan. ‘14—Present_Individual Design Thesis: By creating a resilient building that is designed to create a highly functioning pleasant work environment for the EPA, and also that has the potential to have a life beyond it’s intended user, the building will help improve the relevance of the EPA and of itself. Convex roof provides 1. These systems have an interconnected network structure. light to offices 2. They feature diversity and redundancy. 3. They display a wide distribution of structures across scales. Concave roof allows 4. They have the capacity to self-adapt and “self-organize.” labs to plug into systems

Fourth Year Independent Study Sep. ‘12—Dec. ‘12_Collaborative The co-founder’s of the Seed House approached Lili Torres and myself with this project over the summer of ‘12. The Seed House aims to create an arena for established and emerging community leaders to grow and develop in their capacity to bring justice, equality and sustainability through collective action I studied the Pre-Design work done by one of our independent study professors in order to determine which components were essential. I learned start a project from nothing. By using GIS, navigating city code, negotiating with government employees, and talking with clients, I helped The Seed House lay the ground work for a community empowerment center. large sink fridge food storage utensile storage

Eskridge Ramp

Eskridge, Kansas; Rhino, Autocad, 3ds AIAS Freedom by Design Max,CNC Router; Nominal Lumber, Feb. ‘12—Sep. ‘12_Collaborative Painted Marine Grade Plywood, Steel Rod, Bamboo Composite Decking I served as co-Chair of the FBD Chapter, consisting of two faculty advisors and 3 other students. We designed and fabricated a 120’ foot long wheelchair ramp for Eskridge United Methodist Church. I helped lead design and detail charettes. I also worked in the shop fabricating prototypes, which led to the fuselage design with a series of ribs connected to a structural underbelly. I learned the process of digital fabrication, and was trained to pre-fabricate pieces using the CNC router. The entire team constructed of the ramp over the summer.

I have created the blank canvas equivalent for Eliasson by providing amble natural light and the flexibility of hanging floors. The space frame structural system allows for the top two gallery floors to hang, thus freeing them from the envelope, allowing the gallery volumes to be experienced. The space frame creates an ephemeral atmosphere for the gallery. Clockwise from top: Mid-critique section perspective, early massing sketch, parti diagram, final study model

5. Move center point back a certain dimension and connect corners of squares to center point to create diagonal members. 6. Use points list to define subsets of points.




7. Create a subset of vertical points using a series. Use this subset to create vertical lines connecting points. 8. Create a subset of horizontal points using a series. Use this subset to create horizontal lines connecting points.
