INDIVIDUAL ARTIST MUSEUM 3rd Year Undergraduate Studio

Prof. Nathan Howe

Located in SoHo District of New York City. The individual artist museum was designed for Carl Andre, a minimalist artist recognized for his linear and grid format sculptures. Andre was known for both wall displayed art and floor sculptures. With this in mind it made sense to provide two separate galleries to showcase his work. On the left is a model showing the separation of gallery and auditorium spaces. Inclosed by solid opaque walls with controlled natural day lighting.

WEEKEND RETREAT 1st Year Undergraduate Studio

Prof. Richard Gnat

An 80' by 40' site located on lake front property in Clearlake, California. Was to be developed as a weekend retreat destination. The program consisted of a one bedroom house with adjacent exterior spaces for dining and sun bathing. For improved privacy, a tall concrete wall accompanied with trees surrounded the perimeter of the site. The client also asked to include an exterior lap pool to be used for exercise.

It was required that the overall size of the house relate to a previous project (The Cube) as seen on the top right of this page. The cube was constructed with the constraints of three perpendicular surfaces. The three planes helped define interior spaces within the cube and also determined voids on the exterior face. Similar strategies were used to determine window openings on the house.

GOOGLE HOTEL

3rd Year Undergraduate Studio

Prof. Nathan Howe

Google chose Kansas City as the first location for their advanced internet network (fiber optics). With the launch of this infrastructure, Google is interested in creating a hotel hub within each major city, as their network grows. They see these hotels as a physical manifestation of the virtual network they are committed to establishing.

14


FOURTH FLOOR

The Google Hotel will be located at 173 East 18th Street in the Cross Roads District of Kansas City. The site is 95 feet wide and 110 feet deep. The ribbon of concrete that dominates the form of the hotel was inspired by Google's fiber optic logo. The logo was a series of lines intertwining one another, resembling the cables that would circulate through the city to deliver the fastest internet available.

CRISP TITANIUM BIKE SHOP 2nd Year Undergraduate Studio

Prof. Chris Fein

Darren Crisp, studied architecture in college but then later decided to use his design skills in Florence, Italy to design his very own titanium road bike. Mr. Crisp needed a bike shop to display his creations and to provide a work space for future designs. A site located in Florence, adjacent to a two story apartment building would be where the Crisp Titanium Bike Shop is built.

18


The site was on a corner lot that was very small, but needed to provide an exterior space to test bikes. It only made sense to put the exterior bike testing program on the roof of the building. As seen in the illustration to the right, the client was interested in having a clear view of the Florence Cathedral to the northwest of the site.

FALL RIVER DEVELOPMENT Graduate Design Studio

Prof. Todd Gabbard

As a collaboration between three individuals within the studio to create the Fall River Development team, the area of focus was greater than the typical project scope; involving 25 acres of privately owned forested land, riverfront, and highway property. A master plan was developed in the first semester, implementing lowimpact design solutions for the wooded site that connects programmatic elements throughout the development. The second semester is being used to focus on the economic opportunity within the site through building design and infrastructure for an event venue, cabins, and a campground.

22


The Client, Matt Wilson, left it up to us to decide what should be designed for the site. Before making any design decisions we first asked the community a series of questions to help determine what was needed in Eureka that could be offered in the Fall River Development master plan. Shown on the page to the left are examples of worksheets that we presented to the community members to help us decide what should be included in the overall design.

The Fall River Development is located at the west gateway entrance of Eureka, Kansas. The 25 acre site extends from the Fall River weir, under the Highway 54 bridge, continues to wrap along Fall River, and ends at the southern edge of City Park. The entire development is designed to facilitate a progression of construction and economic feasibility. Each of the areas are developed to build upon each other. The

first focus was to create community support and to highlight connections of the Fall River Development to the surrounding areas. The second develops Eureka's identity through treedecks, art, and business ventures. Lastly, the third establishes multiple economic opportunities to sustain and maintain the entire development.

24


During the second phase three tree decks were designed to be placed in specific locations throughout the Fall River Development. The structure to the left would be placed next to highway 54 as a way of creating identity for the site. The top right rendering is showing a treedeck located in the middle of the site acting as a nexus of surrounding trails. Lastly the bottom right rendering is a treedeck attached to an amphitheater located southwest of city park. The Fall River Development group is currently working in the third phase, Affluence. Marissa is in the process of designing an event center, Anthony is working on a campsite that provides areas for tents, and I am currently designing cabins that will be placed along the bank and tree line of the site.

DIGITAL BASICS

3rd Year Undergraduate Studio

Prof. Matt Knox

During my third year studies in the college of Architecture Planning and Design, I was given an assignment to help learn the basics of computer programs that were going to be used in future studio projects. The Fort Worth Modern rendering to the left was created using Revit, Photoshop, and 3DS Max.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
