RÉSUMÉ


ART OF

HUMANITY CENTER Project Summary This community center, located in Kansas City, KS, enhances the cultural diversity of the neighborhood and satisfies the current lack of places to gather. Its main purpose is to allow people from all backgrounds to express themselves and experience others’ heritages as well. Key Learning Outcome Holding conversations with the community and researching the context provide opportunities to exercise empathy and create wellrounded designs.

ANALYSIS OF EXISTING SITE Kansas City is a very diverse area. However, the KCK side doesn’t provide much of an outlet to celebrate that culture and history other than the occasional festival, nor is the urban context suitable community engagement.

CONCEPT SKETCHES Three anchoring spaces relate to each other because they are where cultural expression happens most prominently. Both form and circulation cascade with the slope of the site to respect what already exists on the site.

The gap between the gallery and the existing mural serves as a place for people to turn the building that houses the art into artwork itself. A brick facade takes its cue from the surrounding buildings. Glass pivot doors at the south face allow interaction between the gallery and black box, such as during festivals or large concerts.

E9 PAVILION Project Summary Although an abstract and hypothetical site, a rock serves as the place on which E9 Pavilion will be located. People can enjoy a nature walk while navigating the path up, around, and across the terrain. The pavilion at the end of this trail will be a place of reflection and education, with gorgeous views, comfortable shading, and informative outdoor exhibits about the history and heritage of Strawberry Hill in Kansas City, KS. Key Learning Outcome Iteration through breadth and depth studies allows the most thoughtful solutions.


SITE ANALYSIS The project is set in Strawberry Hill, a neighborhood in Kansas City, KS (KCK). The rock served as a ⅛” scale representation of the physical site, while the neighborhood was given to provide historical and climatic context. Strawverry Hill overlooks the confluence of the Missouri River and Kansas River. Because the locality offers such expansive views to the southeast over the confluence, the southeast corner of the “site” became the point of termination for the walking trail.

The “site” seemed relatively flat, but a rubbing of the surface (above) revealed high and low points. Elevations of the “site” (left) show how the surrounding land interacts with the rock.

PATH ITERATIONS The fourth is best; it creates views to the southeast (immigrants’ new home) and to the east (immigrants’ homeland), all while fully providing an explorartory journey of the site.

PAVILION ITERATIONS Six iterations explore how to articulate height as exaggeration of the site’s seemingly nonexistent contours. All pavilion iterations sit on the southeast corner and look to Strawberry Hill and East Europe to highlight the view across the rivers’ confluence. The third and fourth forms allow a visitor to complete the same motion they used to get onto the top of the site, providing views and even more displacement from solid ground. They also create interesting shadows and respond better to the path and shape of the rock itself.

Eastern Europe

The nine East European countries (above, right) from which people immigrated to Strawberry Hill (above, left) became the inspiration for the plan of the pavilion. Below, the pavllion roof represents this immigration. The two roofs represent Eastern Europe and Strawberry Hill. The trellis between them is made from nine members—one for each of thet countries. They pay homage to the journey that the people took in fleeing religious persecution.


JOURNEY AND DESTINATION

CELEBRATION Project Summary Set in front of KU’s sacred Allen Fieldhouse, this longspan steel enclosure system protects an outdoor basketball court. The form evolved from a basketball to invite regular and gameday traffic to participate in the structure that serves to honor and highlight KU’s most legendary sport. Key Learning Outcome Story-telling is what makes a decent presentation a great presentation.

CONTEMPLATION Project Summary The plan, elevation, and structure were inspired by a leaf because the site was lacking trees, The chapel serves to fulfill what the site lacks. With a structure made primarily of wood, it delivers light from above but limits visual distraction, similar to the way landscaping mediates light and sound. Key Learning Outcome There can be a meaningful relationship between plan, section, and elevation.

LE CÂLIN Project Summary This music study and performance center was inspired by the way a harpist embraces her instrument as she plays. Inset in a hill on KU’s main campus, this was my first experience with many challenges of design: topography, accessibility, solar access, acoustics, and teamwork. Key Learning Outcome Sketching is crucial for communicating ideas, especially in a team.


Derivation of form from movement and time

MOTION Project Summary In studying human scale within space, I performed a motion and used it to derive form. I swooped underneath a handrail—a fairly symmetrical movement—and began playing with my body’s shape to inform decisions in sculpting. The X and Y axis demonstrate movement, and the Z axis shows time. Key Learning Outcome Inpiration can come from something visual yet intangible.
