Culinary School

By proposing a culinary school for the downtown area of Jackson, it attracts a demographic of aspiring chefs, food enthusiast, and those willing and wishing to learn more about healthy food choices and ways to grow and prepare locally grown produce. Along with the Culinary school would be a student housing proposal. Instilling the ideals from Jane Jacobs’ The Life and Death of Great American Cities, Density and Diversity, residency is key to allow for density and diversity and makes the street level more active with people and would give the city a new image. Such aspects of creating an urban city helps to relate to and address the existing context of the city. Another aspect to address the context is the material choice of the project. By choosing masonry materials, it brings the project and the city together collectively, provides a sense of comfort to the city as a whole, and it shows that the city is moving forward to becoming a greater and better urban city.

Culinary School

For their independent fifth year project, students were to choose a project program that they would spend the entire semester analyzing and designing as their terminal project.

Mississippi Civil Rights Museum ARCHIVE

As a combined project, the students also needed to choose a site within their master plan that would be allocated for the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum Archive building. This facility is intended to serve local, national, and international scholars, provide community meeting spaces, and, of course, house the state’s most significant Civil Rights artifacts. The latter function as well as the building’s symbolic importance demanded a robust response - structurally, perceptually, and programmatically.

Mississippi Civil Rights Museum ARCHIVE

This project required the students to develop a proposed master plan for the future redevelopment of Jackson, MS. The area bounded by Amite Street (north), Adams Street (west), Pearl Street (south), and Roach Street (east) presents the proposed site to which the students tackled. This master plan needed to address the existing railway viaduct district in terms of program, form, and social justice of Jackson.

library


Design Portfolio 2016

Copenhagen Branch Library Copenhagen Branch Library

The design of this project was to be guided by the principles of innovation, creativity, identity, sustainability, functionality and efficiency of a library. Also, students had to address the program criteria, which included the entrance, collection space and active spaces, staff and general public facilities, building support spaces, and exterior spaces. The overall project included intensive studies of site development and urban design, materiality to the contextual surrounding, and connection to the civic realm of the historical region of Copenhagen. Students also had to propose a well-developed solution for storm water management system as part of the NAAB Accreditation requirements. The proposal was to take a strong conceptual position about the changing nature of a library as a building type and as a mirror of contemporary culture.

connector


Design Portfolio 2016

For this project, the intended goal was to have the students and faculty to have multiple interactions with one another within the building and also outside of the building. The design of the building form instills the idea of interaction by speaking with the two existing buildings, Howell and Giles Halls.

CAAD Connector

CAAD Connector

By having multiple intersections and convergences, it allows the public to inhabit the civic spaces and the pathways. The building form is also designed to be able to frame certain views of the campus and its natural surroundings. The hardscape was designed not only for interaction with the public and the landscape.

Caledonia, MS Fire Station

The idea of designing a new fire station addresses the issue of response time to the area. The site where the proposed fire station will be is in an ideal location that helps connect the fire station to the community and possibly become a precedent for future developments.

The project site is three acres and sits at the corner of Main Street and Lawrence Drive in Caledonia, MS. The surrounding context of the site is a typical rural, residential neighborhood. The current situation that Caledonia has in regards to fire stations is not adequate or up to standards.

Chicago Project Chicago Project

The location in Chicago, IL for this project was perfect for each student to design a mixed-used multi-story building. With this design, the students created a manifesto to which they were to follow as a guide to help with their design. The contextual background of the site, Old Town, was a difficult challenge for the students to discover ways to design their project in a way that would not interfere with the Chicago Loop (The L) and would also provide for the community services that would otherwise not be in the area such as a local park/ vertical produce garden and a divvy system. Students also studied building codes, means of egress, ADA codes, and also fire safety building codes to perfect his or her design that best fits Chicago. Each student was able to choose from the given existing site to which they are to appropriate and design a building and develop a site that would give back to the community.

TRASH|ion| Show Ensemble

The students are to design their outfit, however, out of recycled or re-purposed material, hence the name “Trash-ion” Show. This gives the students a moment to show their ability and creativity to design and produce other work outside of architecture.

TRASH|ion| Show Ensemble

As part of The School of Architecture at Mississippi State University’s extracurricular, the students have the chance to design an ensemble for the Trashion Show hosted by the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS) and the Mississippi State Fashion Board.
