Design proposal: Revelation is a space where people can congregate to share, think, and discuss ideas. In the co-lab and coffee bar, people may exchange ideas, iterate off them, and come up with even better solutions. The yoga studio provides a peaceful space where one can get lost in their thoughts. Ultimately parishioners and locals have a haven in Revelation to work together as a community.

Project overview: This design project will be updating a famed, if small, church by James Gibbs, St. Mary le Strand, 1714. This is a parish church (not a Cathedral). The intervention will be mostly underground, excavating some 2-4 subterranean floors under the church. Economically, English Cathedrals are doing well, yet smaller parish churches are struggling. One difficulty they face is a lack of a space for new activities that will attract new, and younger, parishioners and the public. Revelation: the divine or supernatural disclosure to humans of something relating to human existence.

The largest refugee settlement per capita is in the United States where 76 out of 100,000 residents are refugees. In Nebraska, there are 1,441 refugees as of 2016. The narrative of this project follows a Syrian refugee family and how they might seek shelter and become integrated into the community. In addition, our investigation into North Omaha suggests the people of Spencer Homes need better access to health care, food and education.

Spencer Homes Community, Omaha, Nebraska

30TH STREET

This multi-disciplinary studio focused on the developing the community of Spencer Homes in Omaha, Nebraska. We worked with Omaha Housing Authority in order to understand their property better. Located along 30th Street, this key corridor connects 75th North development, Midtown Crossing, Creighton University and the historic Florence neighborhood to the north. How might we reconceive Spencer Homes in light of this changing urban landscape to provide purposeful and sustainable housing options? The guidelines we followed were those of the 2030 Challenge, which this project was entered into.


The ramp connects Mina and her children to the community of Spencer Homes and provides circulation to community activities and programs.

OHA & HEALTH CENTER

Mina, Ahmed, and Rasha, visit the on-site health center that Spencer Homes provides. They are able to get up-to date with their vaccines and an overall check-up.

LIBRARY

While Mina is doing dishes, the kids decide to visit the library. The library has a kid’s area for Ahmed and Rasha to discover new books and learn to read.

COMMUNITY GARDEN

Before going home for lunch, Mina, Ahmed, and Rasha stop to pick vegetables from the rooftop garden.

FITNESS CENTER

Later that evening, Mina decides to exercise in the fitness center. This is good down time for her, yet keeps her active and healthy.

OHA provides a fundamental asset to our economy. By Creating a place for new residents to receive shelter, health care and education, OHA is helping members on Omaha become independent and in return increase the workforce, buying, and taxes.

Mina ends her day with showing a new Syrian family, who is also seeking refuge in Omaha, where the living spaces are. Mina is happy to welcome another family because it reminds her of when she first arrived to Spencer Homes.

Software | Revit, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator detour is a conceptual design to preserve and renovate the Michigan Central Station, located in Detroit, Michigan. Built in 1913, Michigan Central Station was commissioned by railroad tycoon William Vanderbilt. Michigan Central Station was opened in January 1914 and then closed 90 years later in June 2004. detour will transform the 500,000 sqft Michigan Central Station into fully furnished apartments to attract the younger, emerging professionals to come work in Detroit. The primary design intentions are to maintain the historic character of an iconic Detroit landmark while becoming a new community space which Detroit can be proud of. Ultimately, the goal for the Michigan Central Station is to provide an affordable living option for young professionals. A rich palette, engaging yet respectful provides visual impact while honoring historic classic architecture. Amenities such as boutiques and cafes, housed in the Michigan Central Station create a full-service building. This would promote local businesses and become another catalyst to build a stronger community in Detroit. Beyond the public amenities on the ground level, apartments are provided from the fourth floor to the eighteenth floor.
