REFRAMING THE CRESCENT SCALE - VARIOUS |

Greenville, South Carolina, USA | FALL 2012

REFRAMING THE CRESCENT is a revitalization of the Reedy River Corridor & West Greenville. West Greenville has been shaped through numerous industrialization processes virtually erasing any ecology on site. Once claimed as the “Textile Capital of the World” now is a underutilized section of the city left with four legacy problems, Flooding, Access, Contamination, & Sedimentation. The concept was to Frame, Shape, & Connect the site to its history, environmental effects, & eventual disorder. The park responds to these four legacy problems and incorporates them into the framing, shaping and programming of the site. First, an area known for flooding would be able to contain the 10-year & 100-year flood allowing for adjacent development. Second, Sediment would be collected from the flood events on-site and reused to form berms utilized in different configurations. Thirdly, Contaminates would be filtered through a Constructed Wetland system flowing into Greenville’s first usable outdoor pool. Finally, the newly formed “Crescent” would bring unrivaled access to new programming elements and restored ecologies that once framed the Upstate.

charleston b.e.l.t.s 2011 I.F.L.A COMPETITION SCALE - Regional |

Berkley, Charleston & Dorchester Counties, South Carolina, USA | SPRING 2011

Development over the past century has led to the increase of urbanization in the greater Charleston area. In development sense, this has decreased the significance of ecological functions and the character of Charleston. The area’s sensitive land amplifies the tension caused by recent development patterns, further threatening the cultural identity. Charleston B.E.L.T.S was a responsible regional growth plan for the City and County of Charleston. The ecological B.E.L.T.S allowed for flexible yet sustainable growth while preserving its Genius Loci of culture and environment.

B.E.L.T.S. respects the Low Country’s ecologically and culturally fragile landscape, the intent is to develop an alternative to the typical Urban Growth Boundary that draws a clear line in the sand. The proposal is to craft a Charleston Growth Belt or Band that responds not only the region’s genius loci but also the unique varies of individual ecological or cultural communities. The proposed belt or band would accommodate density transitions of future population influx while considering the carrying capacities of the extant natural and cultural communities. These bands/belts will not only enhance unique cultural roots and sensitive ecological processes, but would provide a sound logic to retaining desirable regional attributes that are both grounded and perceived.

THREADS OF REVITALIZATION SCALE - Urban | Greenwood, South Carolina, USA | FALL 2011

Threads of Revitalization was a community design project for the City of Greenwood, South Carolina. Historically textile mills around the south were vital on many levels to adjacent communities. They were central to the community’s transportation & economics as well as having a big impact on the surrounding environment. Throughout the Greenwood Mill Village history the mill was the central defining element of the community and thus when the doors closed in 2007 a big void was left. Threads of Revitalization aims to use historically community-defining elements and reweave them into the Mill Villages revitalized fabric. Threads of Revitalization use a hierarchy of community-defining elements and weaves into the communal fabric. The Threads consist of three primary components, stormwater management, creation of the public realm, and community development. The site’s creation is designed to be a catalyst for responsible development in not just the City of Greenwood, but the region as well. The catalyst created would allow greater connection to the region’s amenities, such as Sumter National Forest, Lander University, Uptown, & Self

BREAKING THE GRID

COMMUNITY CENTER CREATION SCALE - Urban | 22@ District, Barcelona, Spain | SPRING 2012

Breaking the grid is a community center creation project for the technological district of Barcelona, 22@. Barcelona’s urban form has always defined by its grid called Eixample. This project sought to create a community center that uniquely breaks the Eixample without changing the existing form. Barcelona’s urban design is unique in that it considers both private and public space to be equal elements in its form.

The resulting structure and landscape respond visually as a connector to the adjacent neighborhood and allows for future interventions inside the numerous vacated industrial structures. This prototype responds to the adjacent fabric by blocking blind walls inside the 90m x 90m blocks without hindering existing residential & commercial spaces. The landscape becomes the centerpiece for the community center by integrating with the surrounding architecture, this allows for passive use during the day new programming during night time events.
