Pride Rock at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® The Idea

PRIDE ROCK AT KILIMANJARO SAFARI Spenser Gruenenfelder

Project Description: The idea was to place Pride Rock from “The Lion King” franchise on Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. I accomplished representing this using Autodesk Mudbox (a computer sculpting software), Autodesk Maya, and Photoshop. My model has a more rounded shape than the kopje, granite rock outcropping, depicted in the movie to more accurately represent its real geomorphology (1). I also made a scale model of the project sculpting modeling clay, floral foam, and other elements (3). On the back of the model, I simulated the actual construction style used for the facade which involves placing a wireframe mesh over a scaffolding, coating it in concrete, and painting it (2).

Ithaca Waterfront Redevelopment

Project Description: This studio project had three major components. For one, we took walks around ‘Rhineland’ and catalogued our experience through a series of pictures and documenting their exact location. We then were to design a reimagined waterfont for the City of Ithaca, New York. We developed these design choices into a formalized Form-Based Zoning Code for the waterfront area of the city, nicknamed Rhineland. My major roles were developing the strategy and design for the high density commercial area, serve as liaison between the design group and form-based code group so that their messages matched, as well as form and present the final presentation to the City Officials and community members.

The Gowanus Forest Video

Project Description: The Gowanus Forest project attempted to create the 81st Experimental Forest for the United States Forest Service in Brooklyn, New York along the Gowanus Canal. This heavily polluted canal would be transformed into a forested corridor in the city where stormwater could be sent through a series of wetland types to be naturally filtered of debris before being introduced into the canal. These wetland types would serve as tidal wetlands that absorbed nutrients and discarded waste with the changing tides. This provides an alternate system for capturing polluted stormwater instead of putting the sewer system overcapacity and relying on outfalls to discard excess waste.

wetlands designed to capture CSO discharge and stormwater runoff and allow it to filter through vegetation and soils for the purpose of contaminant and sediment removal and overall improvement in habitat in the Gowanus Canal. In addition to improving wildlife habitat, stormwater wetlands provide cleaner, aesthetically pleasing areas with improved water quality and opportunities for educating the public.

Gravel forebay

They could be used to intercept urban runoff and CSO discharges. A gravel forebay will be placed directly at the CSO to trap sewage and allow it to settle and absorb through the gravel filter. Vegetation within the wetland acts to reduce stormwater runoff velocity and trap sediments and pollutants as the runoff flows through the wetland. The wetland system would be protected from potentially erosive tidal action by a concrete retaining wall that would allow CSO discharge and stormwater to filter through the wetland and drain through an outlet weir into the Canal.

By creating a with a series of flat terraces at varying elevations, it can reduce the velocity of stormwater runoff from upslope areas and provide a more diverse wetland and wildlife habitat. With the lower terrace experiencing diurnal tidal flushing, it provides the opportunity to increase biodiversity and productivity by providing two different habitats (pool habitats and high and low marsh areas) and addressing two different issues of cleansing stormwater runoff and water quality and biodiversity within the canal.

Upland

Transitional Wetlands create a gently sloping vegetated transitional zone between upland and open water habitats.

They are designed to be partially flooded during regular high tides and function to provide improvements to fish and wildlife habitat, increase local biodiversity and productivity, and remove sediments and pollutants from water in or entering the Gowanus Canal. The topography transitions from existing upland habitat to high and low marsh areas, sloping gradually into the Canal. Microtopographic changes allow creation of a variety of habitats, including pools, low and high marsh, mudflat, and possibly upland herbaceous or shrub areas.

Jekyll Island Amphitheater

Project Description: As a part of the Jekyll Island, Georgia Master Plan, the renovation of the amphitheater was one of eight design projects on the island. The project would include new turf-tiered seating to replace the existing stadium seats, a covered stage emulating a seabird, a series of interpretive recreational trails, and birding platforms including a wood stork rookery along the lake. Many seabirds visit this area of the island, so the the objective was to continue to have conditions to attract these birds and provide educational opportunities on site to learn about them. This was a group project on which I provided many of the illustrations, SketchUp renderings and a video walkthrough of the site.

Project Description: This study evaluated walkability in Rome by assessing the extent to which the built environment accomodated the presence of people. We identified and examined four street types: the Medieval Street, the PostUnification Secondary Road, the Post-Unification Artery, and the Ancient Consular Road. Case studies of four subject roads were used to assess a number of criteria show in the literature to impact street aesthetics and functionality. The study concluded with policy suggestions for place-makers to consider in the walkability of Rome. My research focus was on via Principe Amadeo, the PostUnification Secondary Road. I also provided graphic assistance with SketchUp and Illustrator.

Garbatella Neighborhood Study: Rome, Italy

Project Description: The Garbatella Neighborhood Study researched this historic residential neighborhood and investigated its transformation from a working class rural housing project (Prewar) to a highly desirable residential area (Postwar). Using census data we conducted statistical analyses to see how significant the social and economic disparities were between the older working class communities and the new residents. We also conducted street interviews with many of the residents and visitors to the area and had them draw Lynch Maps to see what they considered points of interest in the community. At right, are a few statistical findings and the poster summary of the findings of our report.


CRP 4160: Rome Workshop Spring 2012 IntroductIon

Land uSe

Garbatella is a historical residential neighborhood developed under the influence of Ebenezer Howard’s Garden City concept during the 1920’s. The neighborhood is located about 5 kilometers south of central Rome, a rural public housing development designated for the working class during its first development phases prior to World War II. This was a critical period because a large influx of working class population migrated into the area during Mussolini’s era in the 1920’s and 30’s. Today, Garbatella is in a central location that is well-connected by the ATAC metro and bus systems. This makes it one of the most desirable residential areas in contemporary Rome.

The neighborhood study investigates: 1) the transformation of Garbatella from a working class rural development to a central and highly desired residential area. 2) the social and economic disparities between the working class communities and the neighborhood’s new residents. The study area is divided into Prewar Garbatella, consisting mainly of low-density public housing units, and Postwar Garbatella, consisting of highdensity market value apartment units.

Postwar Garbatella significantly outperforms Prewar Garbatella in both education level and employment. There is a significantly higher proportion in Postwar Garbatella’s male population with high school and university diplomas, while most of the Prewar Garbatella male population has a middle or primary school diploma. A higher percentage of the workforce population in Postwar Garbatella is also actively seeking employment or working in the labor market. Postwar Garbatella’s unemployment rate (5.73%) also outperforms Prewar Garbatella (11.59%). Postwar vs. Prewar Garbatella Unemployment Rate

the neIghborhood today As shown from the time sequence maps, the majority of Prewar Garbatella was built during Mussolini’s time. A section of newer developments in the 1990’s includes the large market space that is currently occupied by La Strada CSOA. New high-density residential units were built postwar when the area eventually became a central area of Rome.

Built as of previous benchmark year New construction in interim period

The decline of the industrial economy in the developed world after the 1970s was concurrent with Western governments adopting neoliberal fiscal policies. In European cities, a counter-cultural movement developed in which activists would occupy derelict industrial buildings and stage events for their local communities. These occupied facilities came to be called social centers (abbreviated CSOA in Italian), and were especially popular in Italian cities. Garbatella’s main social center, called La Strada, is run entirely by volunteers, and is legally recognized in its current space near the Palladium Theater. It pays its bills with the revenue obtained from concert ticket and beverage sales, and is run entirely by volunteers. Its antifascist philosophy pervades the various community events it holds and the services it provides.

Public housing policies have kept a large working class community in Prewar Garbatella despite its prime location on the real estate market. Because the housing units are desirable, and because public housing policies protect working class residents’ rights in the area, most residents tend to pass down their Garbatella units to their next generations. While these public housing units are becoming privatized, available units are extremely difficult to find. Because of this, a strong working class community continues to resist the transformation around it. Meanwhile, contemporary developments in Postwar Garbatella are creating a different urban image of the area. For instance, the Cavalcaferrovia bridge, once completed, will connect Garbatella directly to Via Ostiense a major transportation route into central Rome. This phenomenon has created the social and economic distinctions between Prewar and Postwar Garbatella. Residents in Postwar Garbatella are living in this highly desirable central area by meeting the high market value standards, while the working class residents in Prewar Garbatella have the legacy of residing in the neighborhood since Mussolini’s era.

‘Hortus Urbis’ is the first vegetable garden in Rome focused solely on ancient Roman plants.The garden is divided into symbolic, culinary, and medicinal plants that only the ancient Romans would have used. The garden also includes a ‘forno’ or oven that is made of ‘terra cruda’ bricks from the clay directly from the ground at the site. Each Sunday we held new activities for children and families such as creating signs for the different plants in the garden or planting bulbs. The garden is run solely on volunteer effort and the generous contributions of local urban gardeners. I worked on this garden from inception to implementation.

Cornell Student Memorial Garden

Project Description: My objective was to create a Cornell Student Memorial Garden for all Cornell students who lost their lives while students at Cornell whether from accidents, illness, or suicide. I wanted to create a permanent landmark where they all could be remembered. The spiraling shapes represent the turbulence of life and how it is ever-changing and should be handled with great care. A small stream runs through the garden symbolizing peace and tranquility. The design also draws from the Japanese art of zen gardens as a place for quite contemplation and reflection. The sand in front of the memorial stones can be used by loved ones to write messages for those they have lost.

Tutel: Lego City

Project Description: This has been an ongoing project since I was in the 6th Grade. I constructed this lego city, titled ‘Tutel’ using the means available to me (legos, paper models, Knex). I photographed it in 2008 when we decided to take it down from our sun porch. In the summer of 2011, I decided to gather the disparate pieces and construct a SketchUp model of the entire city. This has been an ongoing project every summer since 2011. I hope to expand this model into other programs and texture and render the final product. Each building and section of the city has a unique story about its development, and the entire city has an elaborate backstory I have constructed since I was 12 years old.
