E. Kelly Cube project was about translation of cubist art forms and patterns into three dimensional space. In this first-year conceptual design project, a simple shape was picked and from the artist. This shape is reinvented and revisited from exterior to interior of this cube. Experimentation of switching this shape from solid to void throughout the cube can be seen. Fragments of this shape were used to lead and direct one’s attention from exterior to interior on the ground plane. Light is able to enter through this shape’s voids on the exterior and is casted on it’s form in the interior. The gradiants of light and the strong shadows became the strength of this design, rather than the form and space itself.

through hiearchy of wood and its relationship between stone
This commercial/residential space is intended to awaken both temporary and permanent occupants to the powerful properties that a single material can hold. How does this material affect human actions, thought process, and emotions? The contrast of wood to concrete in the gallery space leads to a heirarchy relationship between the two. Immediately, the occupant is overwhelmed by a heavy, powerful concrete facade, but upon entering, one can start to understand the realm of properties that wood holds against the concrete edifice.

A GROWING PLACE,
RECIPROCATING with THE N AT U R A L ENVIRONMENT CONCEPT_the idea behind reciprocating with our environment is simply recognizing our own place and identity in order to form a mutualistic bond with the environment that surrounds us. This is necessary to avoid any disruptance in the dynamic equilibrium state that this world has created. Butte is an example of this disruptance between nature and humanity; one reciprocal became overpowered while the other ignored the skewed balance of the relationship. It is important that in our planet’s future that this kind of “dominant” and “indominant” relationship never occur. Creating solutions can mend these dents and cracks that have started to reveal themselves in our environment. It is within these cracks that our duty exists in the form of rehabilitation of our natural environment.

the Growing Place consists of a large mass foundation and a box truss which cantilevers over the foundation. The foundation is a prefabricated concrete panel design intended to assist the box truss that it extends out past the foundation. The box truss is an appropriate structure for the distance it cantilevers. It also provides adequate space for the retail, educational, and offices. It extends out to the side walk with it’s greenhouse hovering above exposing itself to the southern sun of Butte, Montana, as if it was extending a helping hand. Interior Perspective

â€œ...a wonderful harmony is created when we join together the seemingly unconnected.â€? when asked to choose a dialectic concept that was site specific, sound seemed to echo as if it was calling out to be heard. since then, awareness of silence has been present. silence is present everywhere. it is what causes a chill to run down the back on a clear, crisp night; it is what allows us to think clearly, to acknowledge our existence in a metaphysical world. silence allows us to hear; to hear the birds singing in the backyard on a sunny morning, or the wind blowing through the branches in a distant grove of pines. silence is like the voids between words, allowing the interpretation of what is being verbalized. silence is like the icy rock surface in a cave that we cannot see, but only touch. it is beautiful, the way it allows us to see, with itâ€™s lack of interruption. silence is therefor an inherent part of sound. creating a sound that is specific to ourselves such as music will awaken the silenced and bring a stronger recognition of the coexistence between silence and sound. composing a place where this potential appreciation could take place could strengthen the knowledge and meaning that music has on individuals and the community.

artemis_REMOTE STUDIO provides architecture students with hands on experience as well as an oppurtunity to engage with part of nature that isnâ€™t always as available as many of us wish it were. Through the course of a semester, we explored the wild, designed cooperativley, and built with our hands the spaces and forms which were derived from our own minds. Remote Studio touched the far ends of each component that constructs the field of Architecture. All of the following projects were designed cooperatively by Stephen Clonde, Charlie Langford, Tyler Tabish, Anthony Lieser, Alex Holzter, Chris Gorder, and myself.
This early project was incorporated into the semester inorder to provide a more intement relationship with our site in Livingston. We were to design a â€œvesselâ€? in which an individual could become selfless in, absorbing his/her natural physical environment dfaonly using site-specific materials. Our group decided to use slate rock in a very basic stacking construction. Using only sand, mud, and rock, we were able to design and build a depression into the landscape. This depression focuses the observer down at an eye level view across the south side of the park, while also providing a privacy burm from the public portion of the park. This depression faces south to maximize solar thermal absorption by the slate, while providing a view of Livingston Peak.

The gathering area, also defined in the program as the “ADA Platform”, is a central meeting space for larger groups(10-20). It was designed to serve multiple functions extending from yoga classes with the sun rise to cub scout meetings in the evening. It’s proximitiy and ADA access to and from the parking lot make it’s location in the park a starting point within from which to explore. On the other side of this patio, views of Livingston Peak can be seen through a natural tree-aperature created by a willow and a cottonwood. There were three segments to this project, the first being removal of earth and concrete preperation. The next was pouring and finishing the surface of the concrete. The last thing to be constructed was the ‘gabion’ wall. We used pig fencing, metal ties, and riverrock to construct the small 18”-24” walls. From this point, occupants in the park choose whether to go to the pavilion, or continue on the foot trail towards the bridge.

The pedestrian bridge is a way to access multiple areas of the park. It is a transitional tool from private to public. Upon entering and parking, a visitor can walk over this bridge to access the pavilion or the southwest leg of the park. During the early summer months this area of the park floods with twelve-eighteen inches of water. The area is overgrown by willow plants that create an extremely dense space. The bridge design acknowledges this busy, unorganized arrangement of willows by sharing it’s fraid edge with the willows and it’s clean edge with the developed park. At every support point on the bridge, a grated segment of metal has been placed to interupt the rythmic pattern of the masronduba wood. The occupant will finally reach a point on the bridge where rocks branch out as a small foot path to a secluded platform entirely surrounded willows. This space was designed specifically for one individual to venture out on his/her own will and reflect his/her identity as he/she rests on the platform. The construction of the bridge was performed in a pre-assembled manner, although footing holes were to be dug before this prefabrication began. A mock-up segment of bridge was built to measure distances between footing holes in order to maintain accuracy during prefab. Supports consisting of 4” and 2” square steel columns welded together by connecting pieces of 3” angle iron stand 30” above grade. Mosronduba wood(dense) was later pre-drilled and screwed from underneath to nailers attached to the angle iron. The last part of the project included burming earth up against each end of the bridge to continue the foot path designed for the park.

The pavilion provides a space for five to seven occupants to perform group mediations, small meetings, or simply a sheltered place to rest. The contrast between the slender steel and the warm douglas fur glow underneath the low winter sun. The roof became a large factor in bringing sunlight through this space. A transparent â€œSUNTUFâ€? roofing material was applied to warm the space in a canopy/ filtered way. The pavilion shelters two benches that begin to reach outward into the already-existing canopy space.

Studying architecture in Italy provided the oppurtunity to catch a personal interpretation of these age-old edifices with pen and paper. I was able to study these old structures drawing every surface with my own hand. However, the advantage of sitting still and focusing these thoughts on paper were not the immediate results of a final sketch, but instead the satisfaction of a deep understanding and recognition of the place I was surrounded by. It quickly became aware to me that the intentions of these drawings were more than pen and paper, but music, voices, and the clatter of hard soled shoes echoing off the cobblestoned streets and the stone buildings; the same buildings that must have carried these echoes hundreds of years ago. It was while pen in hand and eyes focused intently on a subject that I realized how fortunate I was to have created such emotional bonds with these spaces.
