This six-week project studied the reuse of a silo. Located along a biking and walking pathway called the Monon Trail, the mixed use development will attract the attention of trail users. A unique form carves into the silo, functioning similarly to a shelf. The 34 live/work units, studio, and gallery space lie parallel with the trail allowing recreational activities to occur in conjunction with art creation.

The glass facade showcases the life and work of the artists that dwell within the units. The upper gallery space is also transparent, fostering mystery and interest from the Monon Trail. The intersection of the separate functions of recreation and creativity opens up an opportunity for overlap, the new piece as an extension of the trail.

The fluid curves of this artist live/work development directly oppose the rustic silo, which is encompassed by the new structure. The contradicting qualities of the silo help to enrich and complement the modern appendage.

Shipping containers connect to the north facade, plugging into the mechanical and electrical systems, which is centrally located within the existing building. Condensing these utilities allows for less modifications in the shipping containers and minimizes waste and energy consumption. A grid of steel columns is used as an additional support system for the units themselves.

PLUG was a nine-week competition sponsored by the firm Gresham Smith and Partners. The competition focused on the theme of sustainability through cohousing. Initially, the approach was to look at materials that were massproduced with little waste, focusing on the shipping container. The 10’ x 40’ module of a shipping container is sufficient for private living space, which is then supplemented by larger communal spaces for cooking, dining, and gathering. By placing two shipping containers together, a module of 20’ x 40’ is created, giving more ample space for a family. The site is located in downtown Indianapolis with an existing 3-story brick building on the SW corner.

Located in downtown Indianapolis, there is a three-story brick building that is vacant on the site. The canal is located within walking distance and the site is approximately a mile from Monument Circle.

During my internship with CSO Architects in Indianapolis, I participated in an ongoing residence hall project for Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I assisted with construction documents, engineering systems coordination, LEED documentation, and construction administration for Kinghorn Residence Hall, which opened for students and staff in August 2010.

Kinghorn Residence Hall is designed to accommodate the lifestyle of the modern university student. With large open lounges, wireless internet accessibility, and spacious rooms, students will find this building far surpasses former residence halls. Principles of sustainability were crucial to the design, which is certified by the USGBC as LEED Silver. I began working on this project in the design development phase. During the production of the construction documents, my main focus was creating wall sections, unit layouts, and helping with the development of the exterior profile of the building. Practical experience has helped me to better understand the challenges architects face working with clients, meeting LEED requirements, and incorporating all the necessary utilities and strucure into the design.

unify

The intention for the Cranbrook Wellness Center is to articulate a connection between craftsmanship and physical health. The proposed site is elevated to unify the three separate buildings at an institutional scale while creating a feeling of enclosure and intimacy for those utilizing the spa. The elevated plinth creates a vertical edge that delineates the both the exterior and interior boundary of the facility. separate separate

site Ascension into the built environment is accomplished by stairs and ramps. The elevated plinth creates a sense of mystery that draws patrons upwards. Wood railings lead the patrons to the level of the wellness center. site photos Cranbrook is an educational community formed within the arts and crafts style. The school is a unique setting with a strong appreciation for craft and ornate buildings designed by a variety of prominent architects. The Cranbrook Art Museum was designed by Eliel Saarinen, the natatorium was designed by WiIliams and Tsien, and a new sculpture studio edition was designed by Rafael Moneo.

program The nodal circulation of the wellness center allows for the patrons to interact through their use of the building. The program integrates different groupings of functions due to their proximity to one another.

The 3 buildings are designed to resist lateral forces such as wind and earthquakes. Careful planning of the openings allows the shear walls to be mostly solid, thus following the design concept of keeping heavier, monumental walls on the perimeter. The structure of the plinth is similar to foundation construction.

The design challenge for daylighting is the facades facing east and west have a lighter quality, requiring more glazing. Shading devices must be employed to carry out this design consideration. The glazing is within an acceptable range 15% to avoid overheating the building. The southern heatglazing load of the envelope is offset by the passive and active systems.

construction The heavier board formed concrete walls have openings based upon the functionality of the space they enclose. The windows appear flush with the facade in order to maintain a monumental surface to delineate importance and to unify the pure volumes of the buildings.

Contrast is expressed between the thick board form concrete walls and the thin curtainwalls. The inconsistent natural quality of the concrete plays off of the sleek glass panels. The two disparate systems gave unique opportunities for the application of joints and details.

The cedar shading devices are attached to the structure on the facades that were interior to the courtyard. The screen walls provide shading, privacy when required, and framed views.

Four archetypes were created to represent the United States, a young farmer from the South, a Chicano working mom, a Caucasion college student, and an African American baby. These archetypes led to different subthemes in relation to food, cultural diversity, economic concerns, nutrition, and agricultural.

The theme for the Milan Expo in 2015 is “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life�. Branding and gaining a more complete understanding of the United States was the main objective of this studio. I saw this as an opportunity to learn through the diversity of the US. Technology, personalization, and interactivity became the driving forces of the pavilion design.

A parallel thematic structure allows each archetype’s storyline to follow the visitor throughout the exhibit. Gaining familiarity and comfort with the storyline immerses the visitor. Intersection creates opportunities for expanding and supporting the subthemes.

Joseph, Rosa, Olivia, and Malik are presented individually at the start of the exhibit, but points of interaction show the connections between the visitor and the story presented throughout the experience. The order of the topics is consistent as the visitor traverses through the designed elements.

The panels would be made out of a variety materials and media screens that would interact with visitors. The information conveyed on the panels would respond to each users individual interests due to a digital questionnaire filled out in the queue area.

The architectural solution centers around a central spine and the circulation moved like a “U�, down one side of the site and up the other. The main spine is comprised of the panelized system. This gesture leads the visitor through the space with technological interaction occurring a various moments throughout the experience. Canopies block the elements while also remaining transparent. The materiality of the panels will consist of wood, resin, aluminum, media screens, and cork.

Creating a logo was one of the final steps to culminate the brand I had been working on over the quarter. Consideration had to be taken for a title because of the multilingual nature of international expositions. The name I eventually arrived upon for the US pavilion is “nourish life” or “nutrisca la vita”. Nourish can be understood as the way food energizes the body or the way knowledge fuels the mind.

Two large fireplace towers ascend toward the sky with curvilinear balconies connected to the interior lounges. The site has flowing water that freezes in winter, giving guests the opportunity to ice skate and enjoy the warm fires built and maintained along the exterior. The TRiP cubes are placed along the entry path connecting the hotel guests with the brand. The natural mixes with the modern, giving TRiP Mntn a distinctive look within the picturesque skiing village. trip rock

The design features distinctive communities that make hotel guests feel more welcome at TRiP Mntn. Each group has a symbol, representative of a specific ski run, that is repeated throughout the hotel, giving guests places to meet up and orient themselves. Communal spaces are located on the exterior at the community fireplaces and on the interior in the lobby and floor lounges. The hotel rooms feature electronic screens at the doorway that capture a photograph and profile information of each guest. This personalization encourages interaction among like-minded guests.

Also, seating around open fires allow for a unique dessert and after dinner experience. The materiality of the space lends feeling of warmth, comfort, and novelty. Floating lights illuminate the space while diners enjoy their dinner at tables that resemble the erosions on the exterior façade. The restaurant provides a unique environment that serves guests after their long day on the slopes.

design proposal The project, located in Avondale, a Cincinnati neighborhood that lacks convenient resources and struggles with crime, attempts to overhaul a 100-year-old Carnegie library facility in order to increase its prominence within the community. Using Bernard Tschumi’s Parc de la Villette as a precedent, 16’ x 10’ red library cards mark the cardholder’s journey across the site, focusing on five functions: technology, entertainment, nourishment, learning, and community. The buildings link the site response while providing a setting for technology resources and community gathering. This proposal addresses how the brand of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County can be propelled into the community, usurping the conventional library. e1_playscape
