Wesleyan University Addition Bloomington, IL

An addition to the existing Ames Art Gallery

Graduate Work - Arch 605

Fall 2009 | Texas A&M University | Prof. Mardelle Shepley

Project Background

The project required an addition of a 15,000 square feet building to the existing Ames Art Building, that could be constructed in phases. The department had specific requests: 1. lobby + congregational space 2. offices 3. studio space 4. new art gallery 5. distinct entrance The campus administration wanted the building to have a presence within the large University campus. Making the building sustainable was a priority.


Design Concept

I started the design under the concept of creating connections between the existing and new building, outdoors and indoors and within the newly designed building. Giving an identity to the building, while retaining its connection to the existing building was important. A cube generates a sense of proportion. In this case the cubical blocks which transform into my design, draw reference lines from the existing building, but at the same time has its own architectural identity. The glass cube connects the main blocks. The hollow cube, which houses the new art gallery, forms a distinctive entrance adorned with art walls and sculptures.

Design Evolution & Phasing

The space alloted for the new structure was very narrow between two existing buildings. To overcome that, the three main blocks can be constructed in phases, starting with the entrance block, going southwards. The spaces alloted on each floor are: Level One - Entrance lobby, Reception, Offices, Cafe+lounge Level Two - Offices, Gallery space, “Glass box� connection Level Three - Studios, workspaces, New art gallery (double height) Level Four - Studios, workspaces

Sections Climate, Sustainability & Materials

The contemporary building will be linked to the existing Ames Art Gallery; but at the same time will have an architecture language of its own. The concept was each block maintaining it’s individual character. The block physically attached to the existing structure will be terra cotta cladded, the bridge on level two will be all glass. The entrance block will be concrete with colored murals and art walls. The studio block will be framed with steel and glass.

Spa Nirvana Lake Bryan, TX

A blissful destination spa for ayurveda, yoga and meditation

Graduate Work - Arch 605

Fall 2009 | Texas A&M University | Prof. Mardelle Shepley


In this project, each student was able to create their own program. I chose to design a destination spa with ayurvedic therapy, yoga and meditation facilities. Bryan Lake is an appropriate spot for a much needed spa and relaxation facility; due to the lack of any such facility in the vicinity. The center would offer a variety of alternative therapies to deal with stress and to maintain a healthy living. The site chosen had a perfect intimate setting and views to the lake. The orientation was successful with ample lake views and the amphitheatre facing east for early morning yoga/ meditation sessions.

Design Program

The main intent of the spa was to encourage yoga and meditation as a part of daily lifestyle, which helps in dealing with stress and relaxes one’s mind, body and soul. Yoga and meditation are alternative healing therapies. According to ancient Indian therapy traditions, these are safe and simple ways to balance a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states. The program included: 1. Reception and Administration 2. Consultation rooms 3. Ayurvedic Therapy rooms 4. Hydrotherapy rooms 5. Heated Lap Pool/ Swimming pools/ Aquatics 6. Spa café/ Juice bar/ Fitness center 7. Spa Boutique 8. Villas 9. Rooftop restaurant 8. Yoga/ Meditation Pavilion

Concept Development

The concept is inspired from a culmination between nature architecture and the chinese philosophy of “yin-yan” landscape; eventually generating a sense of completion & achievement. It was important that the materials used blend in with the nature. Hence, timber construction with wood shingle roof gave the appropriate look and were sustainable too.

The African Children’s Hospital Kpong, Ghana

A hospital for the Amani Medical Foundation

Graduate Work - Arch 606

Spring 2010 | Texas A&M University | Prof. Kirk Hamilton


The site for the proposed Children’s Hospital is located in a town called Kpong in East Ghana; Accra being the closed city. The site was approximately 25 acres which would be devoted to the Children’s Hospital. An additional 23 acre plot adjacent to the site was going to be acquired for future development. The site is flanked by a mountain range far north-west, Volta lake to its east, mango orchards to the immediate east and west. The only access road ran east-west, point of entry to site, electric and water lines.

Design Program

For this project, Dr. Victor Agbeibor; President and Co-founder of the Amani Medical Foundation approached FKP Architects to design a Children’s Hospital as a part of the Amani Medical Center. The Amani Medical Center campus is envisioned to be a self sustaining medical campus, with facilities like:

1. Transport Center 2. Medical Facilities (Pediatrics and Women’s tower, Bed Tower, Critical Care, Clinics, Emergency and Surgery) 3. Cancer Center 4. Medical School 5. Staff Housing 6. Student Dormitories 7. Logistics

The studio worked as a group, each individual was assigned to design a facility; and eventually a master plan was created. I chose to design the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, both being vital components in a Children’s Hospital.

Design Considerations

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Nurses Doctors Family/ Visitors

Circulation Pattern in NICU

• The NICU was to be a separate department with private NICU rooms. • The design references the plot line, and has two separate blocks: ‘patient zone’ and ‘family zone’. • NICU being a critical zone, the two zones are kept separate. • Each block has a courtyard for natural light and ventilation. • The building has outdoor views from each side. • The NICU department will be connected to the Maternity Center vertically and there is space for future expansion.

Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

Evidence Based Design Approach The following Evidence Based Design concepts were incorporated in the design: Decentralized Nursing Stations : The development of a more efficient floor plan to enable staff to spend more time on patient-related tasks. Use of Natural Light : The use of natural light to enhance the physical environment of the new-borns, staff and visitors. Natural light, air and the surrounding scenic views have been incorporated in the design. Family Support : The provision of spaces that support family-centered care are very important in a Children’s hospital. It is noted that families “penetrate� the unit better; and such family and congregational spaces are vital in a healthcare setting. They help in alleviating the stress levels.

Climate and Construction Materials

• The design has a combination of conditioned and naturally ventilated spaces, cross ventilation techniques & courtyard spaces have been incorporated in the design to help in keeping the spaces naturally conditioned. • Overhangs is an important design feature provided in most facades, for protection against the harsh sun. • The construction is basically a combination of Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) and bamboo; both being readily available locally. • The Bamboo and Rattan Development Program (BARADEP) in Ghana started creating awareness on the usefulness of bamboo and rattan as a non-timber forest resource that can be used as substitute for timber. Bamboo is mostly used for elevation treatment.

Visitor’s Center for the Alamo Complex San Antonio, TX

An addition to the already existing historic structure

Graduate Work - Arch 607

Fall 2010 | Texas A&M University | Prof. Bob Warden

Project Background

The ‘Battle of the Alamo’ of 1836 being the most celebrated military engagement in Texas history; ‘the Alamo’ in San Antonio holds historic significance to most Texans and Americans. The Alamo complex as it stands today comprises of the shrine, museum and the cenotaph. The iconic Alamo facade draws around 4 million tourists a year from all over the world, and it is almost certainly on the itinerary of anyone who visits the city of San Antonio. The design project consisted of choosing an appropriate site and designing the Visitor’s Center for the Alamo Complex.

Proposed Plan

Old Alamo Fort 1. Existing Chapel 2. Existing Cenotaph 3. the Alamo tower 4. the Experience Tube 5. the Water Memorial

Design Ideas

• to redeem the significance of the boundary of the original Alamo Complex, where the battle was fought; hence create a viewpoint from where the entire “old” complex can be seen. • a space to experience the “virtual” battle, to gauge it’s significance. • a water memorial adjacent to the shrine to commemorate the people who laid down their lives.

concept...“Remember the Alamo” The Battle of the Alamo mainly took place within the boundary of the fort. The shrine being just a part of it, is all that is left of the original Alamo Complex. This is quite misleading for people who visit the Alamo and are unaware of it’s history. In an effort to “remember” the great battle of the Alamo and its significance to the state of Texas, I have located my structure at point from which the entire Alamo Complex can be viewed. I have also proposed a water memorial binding the two, as a place for contemplation and commemoration.

The Experience Tube Since most of the people are not aware of the Alamo Battle; in my design, an attempt is made to create a point from where the entire “Old Alamo Complex” can be viewed and the “Virtual 13-day Battle” fought can be experienced using a technology called “Augmented Reality”. Augmented Reality is a term for a live direct or indirect view of a physical real-world environment whose elements are augmented by virtual computer-generated imagery. The Alamo Tower and the Experience Tube also give a 360 degree panoramic view of the San Antonio River walk and the immediate city.

informal exhibit space

Plan at Street Level

The Alamo Tower The Alamo Tower is in alignment with the points within the fort which were highly significant during the battle. The tower is a 265’ 9-storeyed structure with a 40’x40’ base. The visitor’s plaza, informal ehibition space and the ticketing counter for the augmented reality experience are located on the street level. The entire space is envisioned to be more informal and an attempt is made to merge it with the existing surrounding.

Water Memorial The Water Memorial is aligned east-west adjacent to the Alamo shrine. The circular water feature is placed below the archway. The “Black Granite Wall” circumferences half the water memorial, and is dedicated to all the warriors; the cut in the wall depicts the battle. The Memorial was envisioned as a place for commemoration after one experiences the “virtual battle”; and then enter the Alamo Chapel in new light.

Prairie Center of the Arts Peoria, IL

Adaptive reuse and revitalization of an industrial warehouse

Graduate Work - Arch 607

Fall 2010 | Texas A&M University | Prof. Bob Warden

Site This was a studio project which involved the adaptive reuse and revitalization of an old industrial structure and the surrounding space towards the development of the Warehouse District in Peoria, IL. The structure, which earlier was a rope manufacturing industry, now houses: 1. The Prairie Center of the Arts 2. The Tri-city Machine Shop 3. Gallery Space for resident artists The site is located just outside the Warehouse District. The site is surrounded by a freeway on its east, a car scrap yard to its west and an ethanol factory to its south. The Bradley University, which has a major student population is located just 1.4 miles away.

Project Background

The project involved the entire studio which worked as a single team, developing various parts of the design in teams; and it eventually came together as one design. The main projects goals included: 1. Create a Community that composes of the Prairie Center of the Arts, Tri- City, Bradley City and the surrounding community that can interact and engage with each other. 2. Establish a mixed-use development that can provide everyday needs as well as several amenities for the residents and the surrounding community. 3. Create a vibrant hub that will be able to reflect an artistic, interactive and engaging culture.

Design Considerations

Performance arts space above the machine shop

• designing a program towards the development of the Warehouse District • retain the industrial look and feel of the Prairie Center of the Arts building as well as the surroundings; as it is a perfect setting and a point of inspiration for the artists • integrate the Bradley University campus with the Prairie Center and the Tri-city machine shop • design better work spaces for the artists of the residency program • create affordable housing for the students and artists which are accessible from the Center • more congregational and performance oriented open spaces for concerts/ art displays/ performances; which would bring in revenue and community involvement

Commercial + Housing The Commercial is a part of the existing plot. The intent was to make the place a self-sustaining community, for the artists and the students residing there. The commercial includes facilities like restaurant, bookstore, cafe and gift shop and grocery store.

The Housing for students and residents are designed using shipping containers, primarily to maintain the industrial and arty look of the complex. Apart from that, the containers are sustainable, economical, modular and structural. A prototype module of two interlocking units was developed using 40’x8’ containers.

San Francisco, CA

A freestanding birthing center as a part of the UCSF Mission Bay Campus

Graduate Work - Arch 693

Spring 2011 | Texas A&M University | Mardelle Shepley | Kirk Hamilton | Danny Ballard

Project Background

• “The Cradle” is a freestanding 100-bed women’s birthing center located in San Francisco, California. • The center will offer an entire array of advanced techniques related to birthing; with comprehensive care, home-like ambience, considerate staff members, immaculate hygienic conditions, personalized attention, high-class amenities and services; supported by a team of caring staff and medical professionals. • It is devoted to the physical and emotional needs of expecting mothers and newborns. • The Cradle is a contemporary building offering state-of-the-art facilities and patient care in an urban and chic environment.

Space Program

A space program was self-drafted according to the requirements. The gross area was for the building is 101,760 SF, with the following facilities: 1. Lobby and Reception 2. Education/ Consultation 3. Boutiques/ Shops 4. Labor Delivery and Recovery Suites 5. C Section/ Surgical Suites 6. Nursery/ NICU 7. Central Sterile 8. Medical Equipment 9. Pharmacy 10. Spa Facilities

Site Information

Site: Adjacent to UCSF Biomedical Campus

View of the city from Freeway

The UCSF Medical Center has proposed a new 289-bed hospital complex at Mission Bay, San Francisco, California; featuring: 1. Benioff Children’s Hospital 2. Women’s Specialty Hospital 3. Cancer Hospital The Cradle will be a part of the UCSF Medical Complex, but a separate structure and it will be connected to the women’s ambulatory services building. The site is flanked by existing UCSF Campus to the north, freeway and residential housing beyond to the west, the bay to the east and a communityoriented housing (formerly warehouse district) to the south.

Design Approach

Southern Embarcadero Freeway

In this project, I decided to develop the entire site for the UCSF Mission Bay Medical Campus, and locate a appropriate site for the birthing center and it’s relation to the other features on campus; in addition to designing the building.

Site Planning Considerations

• The Mariposa park is in alignment with green spaces in the neighboring area. • Parking is located between the buildings on the east and the freeway on the west, as a noise buffer. • Curved road reduces the traffic speed within the site, which helps in vehicular and pedestrian traffic management. • The proposed buildings have view of the bay as well as the San Francisco hills.

Site Plan for the UCSF Medical Campus

Design Considerations

• Prioritizing and creating clearly defined spaces. • The building orientation should be such so as to gain maximum sunlight. • Direct access to nature from various parts of the facility, to help alleviate stress levels and improve performance. Each patient room will have a view to the outdoors. • Space for active landscape, restorative garden and water features. • The architectural style will be in sync with the surroundings. • The design of the facility will incorporate many sustainable techniques which will help optimize the natural settings and use products that have a minimal negative impact on human health and environment.

Design Development

The building is designed in response to the urban site setting and context. The main idea was to orient the patient rooms south-west, to get maximum sunlight. Also, the breathtaking view of the colorful San Francisco hills across the freeway lies in the line of visibilty. These spaces also have visual connection to the landscaping within site and the Mariposa park. The patient rooms are connected to the surgery/ offices building with an atrium, providing the entire building with ample natural light. It is designed to be a 6-storeyed structure with scope for future expansion.

Landscape Design

The Pond and Water Wall

The Pavilion

The landscape is a vital feature in my design. I have provided outdoor active landscaping in the form of walkways and a pavilion as interactive and therapeutic spaces. The water pond with the water wall is a key feature in the design; it is also used for rainwater collection and filtering. The pavilion is a deck used for outdoor exercises and activities.

Family Waiting Lounge

Kiosk/ Helpdesk

Materials and Facade Treatment

Entrance and Drop-off

For the design and facade treatment, inspiration was drawn from the beautiful colors seen across at the San Francisco Hills. A hint of color here and there on the main facade gives a vibrant feeling and in a way connects the structure to the city it belongs to. The materials used are metals panels, terracotta baguettes, bamboo and photovoltaic panels.
