During my internship at Clark Condon Associates, I had the opportunity to be involved in different types of projects. For this project, I was assigned to work on preliminary construction documents, which included tree protection and demolition plans, construction plans, and planting plans. However, my main contribution to this project to render the master plan.


CONCEPTUAL PLAN:

SITE BACKGROUND: Diversity Plaza is centrally located along the main axis of Texas A&M University campus. It has an area of 1.75 acres and It serves as an important node on campus, in both functional and physiological terms. The Plaza is surrounded by two historic buildings, the Cushing Library and Academic Building. Harrington building and the Biological Sciences building are also located along the boundary of the plaza.

SITE PROBLEMS: • • •

The site is aesthetically degraded Poor pedestrian circulation Lack of social gathering spaces

GOALS: One of the goals was to create an inviting, pedestrian-friendly space where students could perform different activities such as eat, play and interact with others.

SCHEMATIC SITE PLANNING:

SITE BACKGROUND:

This project is located in a large block defined primarily by Rock Prairie Rd, Bird Pond Rd, HWY 30 and William Fitch Pkwy. in College Station, TX. The task was to study the landscape characteristics as both mapped and viewed on a site visit, document the analysis of those characteristics, determine which areas are suitable for the assigned land uses and complete a schematic land development plan. The site is about 4578 acres and only 10% of it was designated to develop The Ranch.

THE RANCH: MASTER PLAN

THE RANCH:

The Ranch is a proposed resort hotel that is about 40 acres. The design was inspired by the local ranching culture. The main goal was to provide a destination area that is modern and rustic at the same time, but also sustainable, nature friendly and appealing to the users by providing access to multiple activities, such as shown on the inspirational images below.

RENDERINGS: The Shadow of Light and Luz Reflectiva are two still life paintings that I did a couple of years ago. The rest of the images are a series of hand renderings that I produced during my second year of landscape architecture. These rendering represent some of the most important elements that we use to design people places. The purpose of these renderings was to study and analyze the effect of colors, tones and shades.
