After a trip to Manhattan, NY I examined 9 skyscrapers that held a special interest in my mind. After exploring them through cracked axons I proceeded to combine these 9 skyscrapers into 9 “flavored slice”. As a result of these flavored slices I created on final flavored slice that elaborated on a new typology of skyscrapers. This typology became know as “New Aging” that focuses on the interaction between the human body and the built environment. After each student developed their own typology we were split into teams of three where we proceeded to combine our typology’s together through the interaction of cells. From these cells our individual typology’s were expressed, and as a result we created a new typology that explore death, the human body, and the collection of water.

This mixed use development was a mixture between apartments and local retail space on the corner of Southwest campus of University of Cincinnati. During this exploration of multifamily residents I pursued an interest of keeping each and every apartment different by creating individual view ports, maintaining optimal daylighting, and maintaining private courters for each residents from other apartments. In doing so I rose the massing of the building above all retail and community spaces, and then proceeded to rotate every other floor around three circulation cores. As a result each apartment maintains its privacy and views while allowing maximum daylighting to penetrate the spaces within the apartments. The perforated material used for the skin of the building is corten steel. This specific color allows the building to connect back to the ground, and as result, fells as if the massing of the building simply rose out of the ground. Furthermore, the green roofs act as plateaus along the street side of Calhoun and McMillian, which further allows the building to blend back into its environment.

The final project of 1st year architecture was to, in groups of 5, construct a vertical space that could not extend past a 4x4x8 foot prism. Underneath the 3-leveled pavilion was a structure made of pine 2x4 inch beams and studs that planes of MDF would attach to. This project also explores the concept of taking another group’s design and elaborating and improving it through your own design attentions with out restarting completely.

On the border of Kentucky and Ohio a small lot was given to me to create a popular style home around the area known as a row house. A row house is normally around 25’ wide by 150’ long. These parameters pushed my design abilities in ways that previous projects have not. Therefore I decided to create a destination in the front of the lot that forced visitors to circulate in and through the house, which allowed them to further appreciate the materials, details, and moves that were happening throughout the home. This was accomplished by created a giant cantilever that is support by a series of wide flanges and cables that all center back to the moment where the structure meets the ground. This cantilever invites guest in to the house were the are approach by a three story atrium that serves as the main light source for the whole house. In this atrium there are numerous plants and wildlife that each visitor can examine by circulated around an intricate stair case. From this compact space I was able to create a unique experience that not only catered to the guest but also allowed the resident to feel safe and secure inside their own home.

During the Summer of 2016 I was instructed to take program, views, and landscape into consideration to create a rowing facility for the Greater Cincinnati Rowing Club. In this program I was to include an inside training facility, riverside dock, indoor boat storage, and reception area. Due to the mixture of program and landscape I was able to expand my facility over a vast area of land. Thus allowing the structure to communicate and respond to its surrounding environment.
