3 architecture Given the recently grown popularity of urban agriculture and the positive impact it can have on cities, architects, designers, and planners have a stake in being involved in their planning and design. Locating new urban farms in areas where food access is low but public transportation use is high, the impact and popularity of an urban farm can be greatly enhanced. This thesis seeks to site a new series of urban farms along the L light train route in Chicago, IL. The new farm will both grow and sell food, act as a market hub for foods being grown at nearby urban farms and gardens, and also contain public outreach programming such as its demonstration kitchen and garden.

7 architecture tanzakademie is a dance school located in the Central Business District of New Orleans, LA. The design of the building seeks to resolve the inherent conflict between dance (seen as temporal, light, and ephemeral), and architecture (seen as permanent and heavy). A steel truss system was selected for the structure and the facade is made up of a system of fritted glass, strategic openings, and metal louvers that provide for maximum occupant control and as well as a light feeling building for the observer on the street.

11 architecture The boat making school at the Lake Pontchartrain Maritime Boat Making campus (attached to an existing museum) sits in Madisonville, LA, a small town in South East Louisiana. Initial design inspiration came from an investigation of a typical route to the site from New Orleans (where many students might travel from), culminating in interesting paths and views. This carried over to the final building design, which consisted of two different experiences on two separate sides of the building - designed to services three user groups: the students, faculty and staff, and visitors. A large ramp was placed in the middle of the building to serve as a sectional opportunity for additional views.

13 architecture The CBD Credit Union is located in the Central Business District in New Orleans, LA. Surrounding the building’s site are several large, traditionally designed buildings that house financial institutions such as the Hibernia Bank building. The design of the building seeks to distinguish the differences between a credit union and a traditional bank, with one being led by a central authority and the other being more decentralized, or having equal parties come together to make decisions. Architecturally, this is achieved by articulating each floor through the projecting of floor slabs above the street, which also allows for various balconies for building users as well creating interesting sectional qualities.

15 architecture Morgan City, LA is located at the southernmost end of the Atchafalaya Basin in Louisiana. The city often finds itself at significant risk of flooding when the rivers to its north flood in the spring. The Morgan City Shrimp and Petroleum Festival museum (commemorating an annual festival happening in Morgan City) sits on the edge of a 22 ft. high sea wall protecting the city from flooding while simultaneously cutting the city’s populous off from a waterfront view of the river. The goal of the museum design is to reconnect the population with its waterfront by providing a bridge from the building over the wall to the waterfront. There is also an element in the design dividing the program of the museum from a shrimp restaurant that is also located in the building. This element is to be viewable from outside and is an allusion to the existing seawall separating the city from its natural surroundings.

17 architecture This design was a response to the challenge to study an existing building by a famous architect (in this case, House LE by Enrique Norton of Ten Arquitectos) and to introduce a thoughtful intervention to the existing design in the form an aperture. Based on a study of this building, which was the architect’s own home in Mexico City, I decided to introduce an opportunity for access to the street, but still be sensitive to the need for safety. The architect originally stated that he wanted to have a connection to nature, so the main opening looking onto the street also has a great view of an already existing jacaranda tree. In addition to the investigation, a focus on the detail and construction of the actual intervention was important to the end result. Extensive detail drawings, and large scale detail models were constructed to get a thorough understanding of how the intervention would be constructed. Finally, several drawings and models of the entire intervention were completed for the final project review.

19 architecture Mediums of artistic representation separate from the traditional architectural methods were explored in a one semester long seminar. Photography was explored by using the Holga, a medium format plastic camera using 120 film. Panoramas, custom filters, and double exposures were used to create different effects. Collages were used in conjunction with digital methods such as the laser cutter. Finally, ink and watercolor was explored to create another mode of representation.

21 architecture In the summer of 2013 a series of trips were completed to visit a collection of urban farms strategically chosen to stretch a spectrum of urban conditions: national and international, small and large cities, dense and sprawling. Ultimately, 19 farms were visited over the course of several non consecutive weeks in five different cities: London and Bristol in England; and Detroit, Michigan; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Chicago, Illinois in the United States. In addition to studying the relevance of architecture in the growing movement of urban agriculture all over the world, a survey of innovative agriculture technologies such as acquaponics was completed, culminating in a lecture given in New Orleans in November 2013. Studies from the trip led to a thesis investigation to be completed in May 2013.

23 interior design These projects were completed while employed at Village Home Stores, a kitchen and bath design company located in Geneseo, IL. Designs were completed with 20-20 Design software and presentations with Microsoft Powerpoint. During my time there, I assisted in selling and constructing hundreds of kitchen designs by interviewing customers, measuring existing spaces, producing professional presentations, and overseeing construction. Through this work I also achieved an Associate Kitchen and Bath Design designation, overseen by the National Kitchen and Bath Association.

25 interior design Elements grocer is a new grocery store designed around the idea of the classical elements of nature (earth, wind, fire, and water), which ultimately reinforces the store’s mission to sell natural and healthy products to their customers. The concept is represented in subtle ways. For example, the customer service station is located at the center of the store with aisles curving around it, mimicking the shape of a pebble falling into water. In addition to reinforcing the concept, precedent research indicated that aisles shaped this way can help a customer standing at the end of an aisle to see 75% of the merchandise in that aisle, rather than just 25% with traditional straight aisles.

27 urban design The Tulane City Center and local non profit Ride New Orleans have teamed up to collaborate on a project focusing on transit oriented districts in New Orleans. Long term goals include improving chosen intersections in the city of New Orleans to better accommodate transit riders, bike riders, and pedestrians. Initial project work included researching precedents, transit issues in New Orleans, mapping, and several rounds of site visits.

29 urban design In the first half of an urban design seminar, the design of a new city in the Chengdu province of China, Jintang, was completed. This specific design focused on the different between Chinese city blocks and the traditional Western sized city blocks, with the former being much larger than the latter. The new city design attempts to fit both block sizes into one city, giving the local residents the large blocks they’re used to in residential areas while also providing smaller ones in the business districts. Also, the width of roads are manipulated in residential districts to provide views to mountains while also making room for urban gardens. A second project in the seminar was more locally focused, where a master plan for the LaSalle Corridor in Central City New Orleans. The master plan was focused on commemorating a visit that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. made to the area in 1957 that started the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, a prominent civil rights organization that played a large role in the American Civil Rights movement. Improvements to crosswalks were planned for and three sites along the corridor were chosen to hold locally designed sculptural elements. These are intended to provide amenities to allow the public to meet and reflect on civil rights efforts from the past, present, and the future goals of the movement.

The tribe has founded a Guardians of the Flame Institute that they will use to serve local youth in their neighborhood, the Upper Ninth Ward. The institute has teamed up with the Tulane City Center to design and build a performance space and community resource that will support the Institute’s literacy program as well as their other cultural initiatives. A group of 12 Tulane School of Architecture students worked to construct the space that was completed during the spring of 2012.

33 design/build The Louisiana Outdoors Outreach Program (LOOP) is a non profit in New Orleans serving youth in after school outdoor focused activities. One such activity they have is a ropes climbing course located in New Orleans’ City Park, but the current course has no shade structure and students must bear the intense Louisiana heat. A group of 15 students from the Tulane City Center designed and built a shade structure created by a tesselation of yield signs that mimic the experience of being in the woods that surround the ropes course. Underneath the canopy of signs exists a bench constructed from an earth berm covered in sod, a pile of railroad ties that were once used in New Orleans streetcar lines, and donated lumber. The floor was made from poured concrete. All the design and construction work was completed by a group of thirteen architecture students and two instructors over a 17 week long semester. Though the underside of the sign canopy is raw aluminum, the top was painted different shades of green to create a randomized pattern that can only be experienced from the top of the ropes course.
