V A N EL AS S A M I L L E R NDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE 2014


ABOUT ME I was attracted to landscape architecture to learn how to improve the relationship o f p e o p l e a n d t h e e n v i r o n m e n t . A g r a d u a t e f r o m P h i l a d e l p h i a U n i v e r s i t y, I h a v e spent the past five years focusing on urban and community design in both academic and professional environments. Aspiring to be a registered landscape architect, I am anxious to continue my work experience in order to develop my experience and knowledge in natural restoration, recreational trails, and community design.

One of the goals of the City of Philadelphia is to connect West Philadelphia and the entire Schulykill River Trail into one unique system for all users. Bartram’s North brownfield site is a crucial entity of this trail system. With the concept of the balance of impact the industrial zoned area we designed not only a 100 foot setback trail, we also envisioned an entire industrial working environment.

Buffer between play and work space

Recreational Trail

We created a 200,000 sq foot building that not only had a sustainable grey and black water system, but also had the amentities including access to the trail. Some amentities along the trail included natural playscapes, boat and kayak docking, low and high speed line trails, and a historic swing bridge.

PHILLY NIGHT MARKET East Kensington, Philadelphia, PA

Night Market Atmosphere

The Philadelphia Food Trust was desiring a new location in the city for a permanent night market for the City of Philadelphia’s wide array of food trucks. After deep analysis of vacant lots, population density, and transportation, our team of 6 designed a flexible communal space where not only night markets could be held, but a variety of uses as well. From community park space to community gardens, this two week designing phase encompassed team work, the art and industrial history of East Kensington Philadelphia, and the diversity of Philadelphia’s food truck organization, Team:Vanessa Miller, Stephanie Miller, Mark Keinard, Richard Cianfrini, Joseph Young, and Andrew Calderone, Kabir Punde.

HEALTHY LIFESTYLES IN PARADISE Nicetown/Tioga, Philadelphia, PA

Healthy Lifestyles interweaves a network of urban paths and trails that navigate the community through a series of interactive and engaging interventions.Through a series of active and passive experiences Healthy Lifestyles links activity between all age groups within Paradise to create unity within the diverse community. Healthy Lifestyles claims vacant lands, derelict railway corridors, industrial archetypes, and existing urban culture. By transforming these lands into passive and active green spaces it will provide the neighborhood with areas where the user can reconnect with nature, community, and Philadelphia. The activity of pedestrian path systems, the collaboration of community gardens, and the flexibility of the Community Wellness Center enhances Paradise by providing these tools to become a role model for all neighborhoods. Team: Vanessa Miller, Richard Cianfrini, and Darpan Patel Top and bottom: analysis maps of the entire community neighborhood displaying social and food opportunities and constraints

SMP detail

Following the Healthy Lifestyles studio, a complete planting plan and details set was composed. In order to provide a botanical education for all users, native vegetation was used to emulate different ecosystems. The ecosystems will be planted in a progression that illustrates the outer coastal plain, inner coastal plain, and the piedmont in return highlighting the topographic changes of the site.

GORGAS COMMUNITY PARK Rox borough, Philadelphia, PA

The Friends of Gorgas Park desired to be a 21st century park that would deem them as one of the most sustainable parks in Philadelphia. The concept was to create subtle education through the natural physiology and characteristics of the ridge. Do to its location on a natural ridge, I carved a path system into the park’s natural slope. Through this, Roxorough had the ability to learn the topography in a subtle way. Learning was furthered through native plantings that spanned on the south side of the park in a meadow, signage that displayed history, and stormwater management techniques that was captured by a dry stream bed that mimicked a real stream system within the park.With this new vision people have the opportunity to take as much or as little education as they wish and have the possibilities of learning something new every time they visit. The final project consisted of presenting to the Roxorough community their new vision of what there communal park could become.

By developing existing underutilized and vacant spaces, we are promoting safety, increasing walkability, and creating connections between neighbors. Essentially, our proposal is reprogramming underutilized property to reconnect residents as well as re-start Germantown. The corridor between the Germantown rail line, Chelten Avenue, and Church lane is where we have chosen to reprogram and reconnect. We are using historic streams, like the Wingohocking and the Honey, as well as notable rail lines of the past to create a system of spaces that radiate a sense of community and culture. The symbolic relationship of the rail line bringing people and goods is re-established through diverse spaces and buildings for the community. This will bring the cultured community together and promote Germantown’s identity, as well as create spaces and connections where all ages can engage in social and cultural interactions, developing relationships between the arts and entertainment cultures of Germantown. This cultural system will re-engage Chelten and Germantown Avenues, creating economic drivers, and as well as creating a place where people can come experience and stay in Germantown.This proposal creates areas such as education districts, eco-district residential models, art and entertainment districts, while symbiotically promoting interaction with Germantown’s historical past. Germantown’s identity will be celebrated and promoted through this project. This proposal creates a town engine for Germantown’s identity allowing businesses to flourish and negative spaces to vanish. The cultural corridor provides the community with a place to meet, live, work, and celebrate.With this proposal, Germantown residents will proudly promote their community as being a responsible eco-district, a recovering economy, and as always a mature and well established cultural destination.

GRADING In both grading and advanced grading courses understanding relationships and how the landscape works were important concepts. I learned to appreciate the process of constructing a vertical road alignment as seen below and a full grading plan for a suburban area which included a program for five new residents, parking lot, and a market.

HYDROLOGY_GSI SYSTEMS Process illustrating the importance of stormwater management and the indepth process of how to design and build Green Stormwater Infrastructure. Lawncrest Recreation Center located within Philadelphia’s Parks and Recreation System was used as a case study to determine if stormwater runoff could be managed on site and potential from the park’s surronding streets. We found through GIS and other tools that it is possible to implement green stormwater infrastructure techniques to help create a more sustainable and helalthy, community recreation center.

While at Philadelphia Parks and Recreation I worked on two large scale projects. The first was in response to a grant recieved for the emerald ash borer insect coming to Philadelphia. The invasive insect will be affecting ash trees in the area causing them to become hazards in the park system. My part of the process was developing a system of maps for about 300 parks in the Philadelphia area. Active pedestrian parts of the parks such as trails and playgrounds were captured using buffers and geoprocessing tools in order to maximize efficiency due to the large scale of parks and only having a summer to survey the parks.

PARKS & REC PHILADELPHIA FLOWER SHOW Philadelphia, PA After returning to Parks and Recreation for a second term I was asked to design the Flower Show Exhibit. Each year the department chooses a park to represent and this year Baldwin Park off of Callowhill Street was picked. After my interpretation of Baldwin Park was finalized, I was to construct 9 sculptural rocks as the main focal point.
