Architecture x Landscape Project: Ames Weather Education Center Time: Fall 2017 Location: Ames, Iowa The mission of this project was to create a nature preserve education center in Ames, Iowa. Our site was located north of 13th Street, near Ames High School. This Weather Education Center educates students and the community about how to use their surroundings to predict weather, as well as to observe how weather can affect the site conditions throughout the prairie, forest, and creek. 3

Architecture x Landscape: Site Analysis To fully take advantage of the site and be able to teach students about weather, I positioned my education center within the creek, forest, and prairie. One of the main problems building within our site was it being located in the flood plane. I used this problem as an advantage to teach visitors about flooding by locating the ramp in the flood plane. Another large problem was getting students to the education center and to accomodate this I created new pathways from all sides.

Downtown Residence Project: Reader’s Retreat Time: Fall 2016 Location: Ames, Iowa The goal of this project was to create a residential apartment on Main Street. My client was a librarian who would be living above a book store. The problem with this site was trying to direct light into the bottom level for the books. The solution for this was to add a light tunnel that goes through the core of the building. For the residential level, having a mainly north facing facade helped bring light in to the split-level space.

Design Build Project: SHIFT Time: Spring 2017 Location: Ames, Iowa Architecture Class of 2020 SHIFT is a design build project that was located on Reliable Street in Ames, Iowa. This project was designed to bring people from the community together. Our mission was to create a place to play, eat, and relax throughout the structure. During the project, I was in charge of construction documents, as well as lighting the structure. I as well helped construct and design with the other 90 architecture students.

Food Hub Project: See Thru Time: Spring 2017 Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota See Thru is a combination of fast food, drive thru, and a healthy choice for the community of Minneapolis by serving freshly made salads for each customer. See Thru transforms the normal idea of a drive thru by letting the customer see the process of their food. They see the vegetables as they are grown, cleaned, cut, and then lastly served. See Thru is the new transformation of the drive thru experience that gives a healthy option for the community of Minneapolis. 15

Food Hub: Concept and Analysis The inspiration for See Thru was transforming the normal fast food restaurant, McDonalds. In the middle of a busy work environment, there was a need for a healthy and quick option for food. Studying the circulation around the site, led to creating two seperate drive thrus to help limit the back up of vehicles and disturbance with traffic.

Resume Ryann Slycord

My name is Ryann Slycord and I am a third year design student pursuing my degree in architecture at Iowa State University. I am very goal oriented and am driven towards creating new and exciting things. During my time at ISU, I have created a variety of projects including: small residential, landscape, commercial, and a design build. This semester, I am working on a large residential project located at Hudson Yards, New York City, New York. Generally, my style tends to be more modern, with a minimalist foundation. I am, however, working towards incorporating new techniques and styles. Architecture allows me to pursue two of my most favorite passions, photography and traveling! Currently, I am seeking new opportunities that will grow my experience and education in designing commercial and larger residential spaces. Thank you for taking the time to review out my portfolio, I hope to speak with you soon!
