Stuart Island Retreat

A D S I I I | P r o f e s s o r Tu c k e r

A weekend home, designed for a working couple located on the San Juan Archipelago on Stuart Island, near Seattle, WA. Through the use of a simple, tectonic structural system, an enclosure system was designed for a pre-existing foundation located on the site. The intent of the design was to create a space in which the line between enclosure, and outdoor space becomes blurred. The structural system becomes a pavilion in which houses a mass, where the only spaces that require privacy are located.

Louver Detail The louvers located on the southern wall of the bedroom not only act as a secondary form of enclosure, but it provides the bedroom with its own operable, sunshading device.

Tectonic Beam to Column Connection At the point where the overhead beam meets the canted columns, they are again, pinned together, utilizing steel connections.

Tectonic Base The connections made at the base of each column highlight the moment where the pile meets the vertical steel connection plate in which ties the two wood members together.

MOVE: a dance house

ADS V | Professor Baudoin

The Owen/Cox Dance group is an established Kansas City Dance group, and focuses on the performance of dance, as well as the teaching of modern dance. The site is located in Downtown Overland Park, KS, intended to be somewhere that the community can experience and enjoy art through dance. The site is nestled between a building directly to it’s north, as well as a building and park located to it’s south. The intent of this project was to create a public bridge between Downtown Overland Park, and the park located to the South through the shifting of masses. This project was focused on creating a working Construction Document Set. The set includes various detail drawings of the building.

vignelli museum

ADS IV | Professor Gordon

Located in Noho, New York City, this museum is dedicated to architects and industrial designers, Massimo and Lella Vignelli. The museum is home to educational and research facilities, an administration suite, and two floors of exhibition space. The galleries are intended to display the life works of the influential designers. The intent of the project was to highlight the Vignelli’s design philosophy while remaining contextual to the surrounding urban environment. The main exhibition spaces are located on the upper two floors, allowing for natural daylight to be used throughout the building. Throughout the museum, pieces designed by the couple are both on display, and utilized in public spaces, allowing for visitors to both experience, and interact with the Vignelli’s designs.

Farm Implement Museum

ADS II | Professor Fein

A museum designed for the Kansas State Department of Agriculture. The exhibition space is intended to display large-scale farming equipment, ranging from the Eighteenth Century to present day, as well as provide exterior display space for these objects. The project was to be located on the corner of College Ave and Kimball Ave near the K-State Campus. The project is comprised of two programmatic bars which extend out, creating dynamic outdoor areas. These bars frame the central exhibition space, where the historic farm equipment would be located. A thin roof plan is introduced over the exhibition space, and extends out over the private, north exhibition courtyard.

Blue Valley Yacht Club

A D S I I I | P r o f e s s o r Tu c k e r

The Blue Valley Yacht Club is a boating club located in Manhattan, KS. The Club sails on the Tuttle Creek Reservoir for it’s day-to-day uses, as well as for special events. The objective of this project was to design a new facility for the Blue Valley Yacht Club, which would be located on Tuttle Creek Cove. The facilities require a boat shop, boat dock, boat parking, classrooms, and an event space. The site for the project allows for extensive boat storage, as well as outdoor spaces that are directly accessible from the facilities. The intent of this project was to utilize the form of the two structures as a gesture back towards the water, drawing the eye of the visitors to the views that are present on the site.

personal artwork

2016-Present

From a young age, I have always enjoyed sketching and drawing. In recent years I have discovered watercolor, and it has since become my media of choice. From hand rendering, to a quick sketch, watercolor is something I love to work with, and will continue to utilize both at the personal and architectural level.
