30% of recyclables end up in landfills.
Design an interactive vessel that encourages people to recycle at three Louisiana festivals. Third year collaboration project with environmental organizations Speak and Keep Louisiana Beautiful Inc.
Cans are manually compacted
Can rolls down ramps into the vessel
Funnel cans into bin Table moves and can rollls into vessel
Trash bounces off of the pegs on the way down
Roll can up ramp and into cut out Eyes are where recyclables go
Thickness - Exterior walls 2 sheets of 1” cardboard - Interior Walls 1 sheet of 1” cardboard
Openings will catch stray cans
Railings will stop cans from rolling off of vessel
Angle of ramp
Receptacle bin - Will be removed from exterior of vessel
Girard Park Lafayette, LA
8,000 cans were collected over a 3 day period
The vessel was not eye level and got lost in the crowd of people.
The can roll was turned upright and repurposed to become a more visible.
The cardboard became saturated with leftover beer.
Painted white to protect vessel from leftover beer.
Materials that could be recycled was not clearly communicated.
Easy to read graphics were implemented.
Vermillionville Lafayette, LA
2,000 cans were collected over a 3 day period
The location had little to no lighting.
The location of the vessel could have been better.
Lighting was attached to the vessel.
Parc Sans Souci Lafayette, LA
UL Lafayette Industrial Design
12,000 cans were collected over a 4 day period
Percentage of recyclables collected by our vessels.

Translate design language of architect Tom Kundig into a product.
The product embodied the following criteria that I designed in response to Chicken Point Cabin.
of 100 UL Lafayette students that were surveyed are not satisfied with their built in computer speakers and have resorted to purchasing external speakers.
52% find that external speakers are not durable.
17% find that the sound is not crisp.
find that external speakers are not loud enough.
Justin Yu, the associate editor at CNET.com, gave the Creative D100 a 5 star rating. Taking time to figure out why the Creative D100 received a high rating allowed me to gain valuable insight into what users expect from a portable speaker.
Ultra portable wireless speakers Diverse connectivity options
Versatile power options
Two powerful 3" drivers
Open and closes to protect speaker Folds to fit
inside a bag
Stand flips Stand folds
Back of speakers connect together When not in use the stand will close to protect the speaker
Lever allows stand to open and close
Use a kickstand to the support speaker
Kickstand will fold up inside of the speaker when not in use
Place the kickstand in one of the notches to point the speaker in different directions

drive to and park on campus.
cross-disciplined UL Lafayette students were surveyed regarding their preferences on commuting to and from school. Here始s what we found:
walk to campus.
ride the bus to campus.
bike to campus.
80% Safer intersections
Adequate Bicycle Parking
More bicycle paths
of surveyed students would choose to bike to campus if there were:
Separate bicycle and pedestrian paths
Streets and intersections that are able to support bicycle paths and shared lanes.

Proposed intersection of Hebrard and St. Mary Boulevard Bike boxes will be used at red lights to increase cyclist visibility and provide bicyclists with a head start when the light turns green.
Sight triangle at intersections: 10 to 20 feet The cycle track shall be vertically separated from the street at an intermediate or sidewalk level
