URBAN OMAHA AND COUNTERACTING SUBURBAN SPRAWL
Omaha, Nebraska | Spring 2016 | Conagra Headquarters Redevelopment
The Conagra Omaha Headquarters lies on some of the most valuable land in the state of Nebraska. It holds prime real estate in Downtown, is close to the river, and is in the center of all the activity of Omaha. When Conagra moved to Omaha and destroyed Jobber’s Canyon, a dense, urban area was lost and a “suburban” environment was implemented.
REDENSIFYING THE URBAN SPRAWL
The rest of Omaha has been growing as a suburb, much like Conagra - outwards rather than upwards. Urban sprawl has become a huge issue in the city of Omaha. In the modern age, suburbia is dying, and the cities are being reinvigorated. People want to live closer to where they work, and avoid using a car if they can. By re-densifying the Conagra site, Omaha can deal with itâ€™s urban sprawl issues, give the people a huge hub of amenities and circulation, and move the city into the urban, modern era.
The central location of Conagra gives Omaha the opportunity to continue growing the city into a new urban hub, as repopulate the density lost. Among the consequences of this, there has been a lack of connectivity around the city’s urban cores and nodes of activity. automobile has been a need of The a Omaha residents, causing a vast amount of parking needed to accommodate destination parking in Downtown Omaha. Instead of inﬁlling more of these disconnected destinations, the Omaha Conagra site can become a means to getting to a destination, as well as one. The growth of Omaha has been so sprawled, that public transit can’t and doesn’t accommodate the city’s needs. Only one percent of the city’s transportation trips are taken in public transit, showing the need for a new system. A streetcar system – using Portland, Oregon as a precedent precede – would connect major points of Omaha, reducing the need for a car in the city and increasing the location – based econom
01 Improve Ecological Condition
The site has a number numbe of ecological features that we would like to preserve and improve upon. With the existence of multiple ecologies on our site, we will address each in a respectful manner while attempting to improve it and allow people experiencing our site and these ecologies.
Not only do we aim to create a sense of connectivity throughout our site, but to our site’s surrounding context as well. With the high density residential development planned to the north of the site, we have a unique opportunity to act as a ﬁlter between these residences and the historical nature of the Ciqikou District to the south.
03 Blending of Scale
With the large amount of development happening around our site, we aim to be conscious of the existing scale of Ciqikou and the development to the north. This site is a transition between large scale towers and a ﬁne grained historical district.
04 Create a Pedestrian Presence
In a decreasing car ca centric world and an increasing interest in more pedestrian modes of transportation, we will create a positive experience for pedestrians while still keeping a through path for vehicles. We will encourage walking through our site and to create spaces of cohabitation.
SHIJINGPO MASTER PLAN Chongqing, Shenzen, China | Fall 2016 | Sustainable Urbanism
SHIJINGPO Chongqing, China | Fall 2016 | Sustainable Urbanism
Sitting atop the rolling hills of Chongqing, China, the Shijingpo Sōují community Center becomes the hub of activity in a bustling metropolis. The Shijingpo site is perched on over 30m of uphill terrain, looking down upon downtown Chongqing and the nearby Ciqikou Historical District. On the other side, lies the future mass housing projects becoming even more dominant throughout the booming growth of Chinese cities. Chongqing, known as one of the boilers of Southern China is no exception, boasting an urban sprawl of upwards of 30 million. The Shijingpo Sōují Community Center, a place for gathering - in Chinese - looks to create a welcoming, collaborative, creative environment in the vast urban sprawl. The complex is divided into three portions or main buildings.
SŌUJÍ COMMUNITY CENTER
The most prominent building divides the market rate housing and the kindergarten to the north, and houses the vast community center. The large atrium of the public library greets the main entrance to the north, which also helps form the public couryard. Shaded from the heat and sun, the courtyard becomes a central hub to meet, converse, work out, enj community. Embedded within the and enjoy community center is thou- sands of square meters of meeting rooms, classrooms, athletic facilities, maker spaces, studios, and amenities for the housing stacked above. Atop the community center sits a massive community garden, over three thousand square meters, producing almost 150,000 kilograms of food per year for the site. This, coupled with the solar collectors on the roof, the green roofs on the kindergarten, and the promotion of sustainability and education throughout the site prove to be a positive impact on the dense urban sprawl of modern China. sp

The north side of the site and the highest point of the plateau hosts a community kindergarten, focused around a central courtyard, promoting group work, motor, and tactile skills, as well as promoting green sustainability. Multiple wings, centered around the courtyard give an intimate class- room experience in one area, and collective group exploration in another.

UNIV. OF NEBRASKA Lincoln, Nebraska | Fall 2014 | Elemental Filters
In a wooded part of campus, the Elemental Micro Library becomes a structure and sculpture that explores the limits of materiaity and construction. The concrete structure, similar to the work of Toyo Ito, couples with glass and wood to create an intimate, yet welcoming piece on campus.
Constructed of only 2x4s and 2x6s, the [E/W]ood Box sits as a viewing platform on Richard Serra’s “East-West” Installation in the Qatari Desert. The project investigates the modular quality of basic wood construction methods to create a complex and sophisticated project to compliment Cerra’s work
