Annie duplx FALL 2012 mark odom_DESIGN ARCHITECT M.BUTLER_PROJECT ARCHITECT The Annie Street Duplex is an effort to extend design sensibilities into the typically low-end market of duplexes and rental properties. The push and pull of the volumes within the structure, in addition to the stark contrast of black stack-bond brick and white stucco, are meant to play with the eye and challenge the way a viewer sees the volumes of the building. While designed to meld into the current South Austin neighborhood, it is also attempting to bring a modern aesthetic to the developing neighborhood. Great care had to be given to the parapet roof height to meet city zoning codes while giving the volumes the necessary height to have prescence.

lake house fall 2012

M.odom_ DESIGNER, PROJECT MANAGER M.BUTLER_PROJECT ARCHITECT Waxahachie is an a-typical location for modern design, so with great surprise our firm was approached by a couple looking to bring a modern aesthetic to their new home on Lake Waxahachie, Texas. Great care was taken when choosing a material palette to allow the home to settle into its natural lake setting while adding a raw quality to the home’s design. Windows on the north side of the house take advantage of the lakeview, but stay shaded from the sun for most of the year because of a deep overhang from the standing seam metal roof. The interiors are mostly clean, white plaster to give visual precedence to the large glulam beams in both the main house and the master suite. With a double-height living room, these become a strong statement throughout the length of the house. I came into this project during design development and have taken it through construction documents, learning detailing of wood frame structures and special features, such as the cased openings in the metal roof. Our clients have fully embraced this new modern aesthetic, enjoying that the simplicity of the materials and lines brings out the unique spatial qualities of their home.

ART INSTALLation FALL 2012 M.butler + M.ODOM_DESIGNERS m(odm) studio constantly strives to find a balance between the controlled elegance of clean lines and the energy of chaos. The existing bridge structure, with its rigid grey lines, offers a perfect moment for intervention – one that offers disconnect from existing monotony – where color, kinetics, and spatial perception are combined to challenge one’s understanding of space. – mark odom Originally proposed as a temporary installation of a series of timber “arms” and perpendicular bracing, the purpose was to transform the pedestrians’ experience as they pass through the walkway. Since the idea’s inception it has maintained focus on altering the perception of space, but has morphed into a more permanent fixture. With Mark Odom’s preliminary design and objective as a starting point, I developed the idea of kinetics through a gradually shifting repetition of the proposed “arms.” Through the altering of form and spacing of each member, I was able to create a dynamic range of views and spatial experiences as one walks, runs, or cycles between the north and south shore of Lady Bird Lake.

[

all renderings, physical, and computer model were produced by m.butler while developing the initial concept by m.odom

]

INITIAL design sketches and drawings by Mark Odom from 2009 were the starting point for my design development

VIEWING DECK

By gradually increasing the spacing of each tube-steel member, I was able to drastically lengthen the imprint of our installation; prolonging the desired experience without significantly increasing the budget for materials. The installation can be seen as an extension of the enclosure provided by the tree canopy on the south shore. Traveling north, towards to the viewing deck in the middle of the bridge, the installation opens up, providing increased sightlines to the lake and city.


design DEVELOPMENT MATERIAL The change from timber to steel came from Mark Odom when the permanence of the installation was realized, adding to the durability and longevity of the built product. EXISTING STRUCTURE The incremental seperation of each arm member was based off the rail spacing, allowing each arm to align with a piece of the walkway structure and for the installation as a whole to fit seemlessly into the existing condition. MOVEMENT While the installation itself is fixed in place, the user’s experience is always changing. As one travels from north to south, the increasing density of members causes a perceived increase of speed. While inversely, as one approaches the viewing platform from the south, they are seemingly slowed down by the lower frequency of members. 01 SECTION DETAIL 01 02 03

brazos valley museum of natural history SPRING 2011

MARCEL ERMINY_DESIGN PROFESSOR m.butler_DESIGNER The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History led a campaign in the spring of 2011 to become one of the priviledged museums to house the retired NASA space shuttles. The funds raised during this drive to get the shuttle would pay for the transportation costs associated with moving the shuttle and a new museum to feature the shuttle more prominently within the collection. The site was located near the Bush Presidental Library and would be a compliment to the area, drawing millions of tourists over many years to see both the shuttle and the library.

Since the end of WWII, the Sami population in Northern Scandinavia have suffered increasingly from poor dental health. The introduction of the Western diet into the younger generations’ lifestyles has caused massive amounts of tooth decay within the nomadic people. Though the government sedentarialized the nomads after WWII, there are many family groups that still live the nomadic lifestyle, roaming the frozen land of lapland. The idea behind the mobile dental unit is that the dentist and his assistant can be based in the larger towns in Scandinavia and travel out to find the Sami groups twice a year to provide service.

urban vineyard spring 2012 marcel erminy_COMMITTEE CHAIR ward wells_COMMITTEE CHAIR jesse saginor_COMMITTEE MEMBER M. BUTLER_DESIGNER My final project for Texas A+M University is an urban vertical vineyard for a winery in Austin, Texas. The project explores the dichotomies present in a project that combines the pastoral traditions of a winery with the urban character of a city. Creating a growing structure that only uses natural sunlight to grow the plants for a 50,000 case winery was the main design problem. This program is juxtaposed against a hotel for the wine tourist.

favela study SPRING 2011 peter lang_DESIGN PROFESSOR m.butler_RESEARCHER These diagrams are from an urban theory paper about the favela rocinha in rio de janeiro. The paper explores the urban and social conditions that lead to the development of a favela, as well as the unique architectural conditions that are created in these areas.

diamonds are evil product DESIGN m. butler_DESIGNER MICHAEL MURPHY_PARTNER

In the summer of 2011, I started a business selling wood jewelry on etsy. The ideas behind the use of wood are sustainability, and calling attention to the immoral diamond trade. 15% of the profit is donated to aid for africa, which in turn supports children and women affected by civil war funded with diamond trade.
