DEUS EX MACHINA a kinetic prototype for living in the floodplain yscloskey county, a collection of fishing towns in east louisiana, received seventeen-ft. high storm surge waters following hurricane katrina. widespread destruction affected the residents and recreational property owners in the area, highlighting the need for a new + innovative approach to designing in this ephemeral landscape. the proposed solution is to create a building language that incorporates both passive and active elements to deal with extreme flooding. the majority of the building is designed as a flood-able structure; the houses valuable core- kitchen, bathroom, bed and select storage - is hoised to safety by a counterweight/pulley.

SOCIAL TOWER a center for fun + entertainment in istanbul fulya is a neighborhood in istanbul that is experiencing rapid growth, with the result being a dramatic increase in density. the traditional development pattern of commercial/retail on the ground floor does not provide adequate space for entertainment and leisure, forcing fulya residents to venture outside their own neighborhood to pass the time. the proposal the proposal seeks to create boxes of public program that are suspended in a vertical framework, with the goal of including every age group and interest. the fenestration and openess of these boxes is determined by the program. the circulation core pierces the highly-public boxes, while private program is accessed via a continuous public interstitial.

1942

development is the most dense along the Bosphorus. there are pockets of untouched land in the urban fabric and the northern area remains untouched.

1966

main roads are enlarged and solidified. further urban development continues along the new axes


2008

development has covered almost all of the area; a few pockets of undeveloped space remain in and around Fulya.

2015

all remaining lots will be infilled and expansion will be forced to continue vertically.

LOUISIANA MUSEUM OF CIVIL RIGHTS A museum is planned for Central City that documents the struggle for equality, much of which took place here in New Orleans. The program includes museum space, gallery space (permenant and temporary), community center, lecture hall, research library and cafe. The design proposal aknowledges that the museum will need to accommodate field trip groups on a regular basis and that material of the museum is of very heavy emotional content. The intention of the design is to combat “museum fatigue� by creating discrete elements that house the sensitive story of civil rights. These closed volumes are separated by glazed ravines that respond to significant elements of the site along the OC Hailey corridor. As the visitor moves through the museum on a path of discovery, the ravines divide the experience into segments and allow for recoverey (physical and mental) to happen.

NEW DANCE SCHOOL + THEATER FOR THE MOULIN ROUGE A dance school is planned to occupy the lot next to the famous cabaret in Paris. Included in the program are several public areas such as a bar, cafe, museum, and black box theater, as well as a dance school comlete with six studio spaces. The project intends to connect with the city of Paris by allowing the theater to spill out into the streets. As the stage floor folds down to the street level, the line between where it is acceptable to dance and where it isnt becomes blurred. Public program surrounds the large void carved out of the mass and activates the area. The school floats above, offering limited views into the area where the dance routines are perfected.

GROW DAT YOUTH FARM mission statement: the mission of the grow dat youth farm is to nurture a diverse group of young leaders through the meaningful work of growing food. my involvement with the grow dat project began as part of the initial design studio. because of parameters set forth by the donors, the design was to use recycled shipping containers as the structural elements. the design process involved extensive research as well as a highly creative approach to design (if you have ever been inside a shipping container, it is immediately obvious why creativity is paramount). upon completion, grow dat will be the largest urban farm in new orleans with an estimated annual vegetable production of 10,000 pounds.

SHEAUX FRESH SUSTAINABLE FOODS partners: thaddaeus and tamara prosper, paco robert mission statement: our mission is to grow fresh, healthy food for our family, help others grow fresh, healthy food for their families, and offer what we’ve grown to those who cannot do so for themselves. we want to plant the earth and feed the world! i assisted the prospers in designing what would eventually become sheaux fresh sustainable foods. this urban garden stands directly north of an overpass, complicating site zoning due to unfavorable shade. the budget allowed for no extravagence, and so the design ambition was to create a maximum effect with minimum resources. this was achieved through the design of a greenhouse using recycled windows. the end result is a “teach-by-example” billboard for sustainability; it is fun, functional, and inexpensive.

ABOUT US

Sheaux Fresh Sustainable Foods began as hobby. I was introduced to fresh, home grown fruit and vegetables at a very young age because both of my parents kept gardens when I was a child. I learned from my father that eating fresh, unprocessed foods helps us stay healthy. I learned from my mother that whether we lived in a big house with plenty of yard space or a two-bedroom apartment with a small patio, there was always room to grow fresh food. When I got married and started my own family I began gardening too. As we moved to different places I adjusted the size and contents of each garden to fit each home. My family’s garden’s have thrived in the rocky soil of Yonkers, NY and the short growing season of St. Paul, MN. We even had a garden survive Hurricane Katrina. That’s why I know that with the appropriate knowledge, support and a little bit of patience, anyone can grow their own fresh, healthy food no matter where they live. There is no reason for anyone to lack access to food the way it was meant to be eaten - fresh!

EMERIL LAGASSE FARM partners: emeril lagasse foundation, paco robert mission statement: emeril lagasse foundation supports non-profit organizations that provide educational programs, life skills development, culinary training and cultural enrichment, creating opportunities in the communities where emeril’s restaurants operate.

this project is part of celebrity chef emeril lagasse’s community outreach program. it is located in city park and will be the neighbor of grow dat youth farm. because of my experience with both the site and program, i was brought on by the business strategy team to assist with creative vision of the project as well as practical knowledge and logistics. as the project evolved, my role became centered around the design of a “mobile market” capable of bringing fresh produce to food deserts EATER NEW ORLEANS within new orleans.
