architecture as a link completion fall 2017 - spring 2018 location houston, texas size 400,000 sq ft structure precast concrete

Industrialization in America left behind a sea of abandoned warehouses and factories all over the country. These buildings today are often neglected and typically lack a design connection from their interior spaces to their adjoining exterior site, and furthermore to the city in which they were built. The architecture of these existing warehouses and factories are representative of their original usage and have a cultural significance to their city, and abandonment or destruction of these buildings would be tragic. These buildings represent the culture of a place – whether it be an entire city or a single neighborhood – all in one built entity, which is why it is important today that we reuse these buildings to give them new purpose. Today, we as a society are forced to ask the question of how we can transform these abandoned buildings to provide them a new function that ultimately integrates them with modern-day culture and lifestyle. The former Maxwell House coffee processing factory and its surrounding site located in East Downtown Houston is transformed into a doorway between Downtown and the emerging neighborhood of EaDo, thus creating a unique integration of the currently highway separated areas. The building and plaza aim to not only link the city’s Downtown and the adjacent developing neighborhood, but to also link the spatial and historic characteristics of the historic building with the qualities of its adjoining site to create a cohesive identity through the celebration of the art and culture of the EaDo neighborhood.

library on the river completion spring 2017 location chicago, illinois size 55,000 sq ft structure steel

Located in Chicago Illinois, the Library on the River is set in the Ping Tom Memorial Park in Chinatown situated along the south branch of the Chicago River. As a tribute to its Chinatown location, the design of the library was first inspired by basic Chinese architectural principles – bilateral symmetry, horizontality, orientation to the water front, and the addition of courtyards and skywells. The Ping Tom Park’s asymmetrical bridge’s counterbalance design and truss structure also inspired the library’s overall design. The goal of the library is to not only encourage locals and travelers to come explore the book selections, but to also come to enjoy the expansive park, spectacular Chicago skyline views, and ultimately the unique architectural design the library has to offer.

the richter museum completion spring 2015 location dallas, texas size 30,000 sq ft structure precast concrete

The Richter Museum is a single artist institution devoted to the life and work of one of the 20th century’s most influential and enigmatic artist, Gerhard Richter. The site for the museum resides in the Warehouse District of Dallas, Texas, an urban area that is up and coming in both cultural and economic aspects. The museum is comprised of two distinct spaces. The first prepares the site by creating a dense bosque of trees that leads you up to the entrance and garden space. This is also the first introduction into the tartan grid system that is integrated throughout both the interior and exterior spaces. The double helical circulation moves the visitor through a series of volumes, and guides them through his most unique and famous pieces in three different stages. The first stage is the “figurative” gallery that contains his photo-realistic paintings. Next, is the “constructive” gallery that features his 21’ by 21’ colored squared canvas titled 4900 Colors Lastly, is the “abstract” gallery which is comprised of his many different splattered, blurred, and collaged paintings, along with some of his various well known sculptures scattered along the way. A central axis unites all the spaces together, all the while allowing the galleries to respond to the evolving character of Richter’s art by changing scale and proportion.

the kite pavilion completion spring 2017 location dallas, texas size 3,000 sq ft structure wood and steel

The Kite Pavilion was a two week project inspired by the Dallas Park Pavilion Competition. The Pavilion is located at the Winfrey Point of White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas. The pavilion is inspired by one of the most coveted park pastimes – kite flying. From the roof plan, the pavilion is designed in the shape of a kite. The pavilion itself is a right triangle, with its landscape design making up the other two triangular components. From elevation, the kite looks as if it is flying, with its structural supports appearing as minimal as possible. The structural tension rods are also designed to look similar to the string of a kite.

bryan urban farmer’s market completion spring 2016 location bryan, texas size 900 sq ft structure wood

The Bryan Urban Farmer’s Market located in Bryan, Texas was a semester long design-build studio project. Our architectural design studio along with a group of Construction Science students worked together to design the pavilion for half a semester and build it for the other half. As a class, we designed the entire structure, created construction documents, ordered all the materials, cut and prepared the materials, and ultimately built the pavilion. The purpose of the pavilion is to serve as a place for the weekly Bryan Farmer’s Market to be held. The ultimate goal would be to build four more on the site to provide enough covered area for the entire market.
