DONALD JUDD MUSEUM Kansas City, MO Fall 2015 | Nilou Vakil
In examining a potential site for a museum dedicated to the works of Donald Judd, it became apparent that the design must be responsive to the surrounding urban context. Situated in the heart of Kansas City’s Crossroads District, the location provides views to the downtown skyline as well as proximity to the Kauffman Center. The building’s exterior form seeks to engage these elements to establish a clear connection between the southern end of the city’s arts district and downtown Kansas City. In addition to the desire to unify the Crossroads District, it was imperative that the design represent Judd’s work in a meaningful way. The design seeks to incorporate Judd’s philosophy by applying his notion of empiricism to architecture. Judd’s works were often placed in settings that were subtle in nature, but had a very direct intent. This idea of quiet spaces with clear purposes represents the overall goal for the building’s interior galleries, and is further reinforced by the angling of the exterior form.
Separation of Museum Space
Gallery spaces are elevated to maximize views, designating the ground floor for public spaces including a cafe and library.
The buildingâ€™s upper volume angles to the Northeast as a nod to the Kauffman Center and nearby Power & Light District, while the triangular cutout on the lower level allows the building to align itself with the historic Sullivan Higdon & Sink building.
Embed Within Site
Create a Gathering Place
In an effort to fully embrace its surrounding context, the museum offers a sculpture garden at the siteâ€™s southern end. The landscaping of the garden aligns itself with the bays of the adjacent 310 building to maximize visibility.
The project seeks to establish itself as a focal point within the Crossroads District, capitalizing on its central location to continue the growing popularity of the area.

Gallery Spaces The dramatic cantilevering of the buildingâ€™s upper volume allows it to fulfill its goal of embodying Juddâ€™s notion of empiricism, creating subtle gallery spaces with highly focused views.

ST. SPYRIDON COLLEGE Sydney, NSW, Australia Fall 2016 | Angelo Candalepas
In an area of Sydney where the construction of high rise school buildings is becoming increasingly popular, the brief proposed by St. Spyridon College calls for a hybrid of sorts between this new age style of school and a more traditional campus. In phase I of a proposed three phase plan, St. Spyridon will seek to condense its Kingsford and Maroubra campuses onto a site that is currently home to the junior school and centrally located Greek Orthodox Church. This design addresses phase I of the campus plan by accommodating the schoolâ€™s full enrollment of 1,500 students while providing maximal greenspace and remaining considerate to the church that is to remain on the site. The design also seeks facilitate the schoolâ€™s future growth by establishing a clear entrance and open sightlines to a potential athletic complex in phases II and III.

Staff Parking/Loading Area Doran St. Entrance Gardeners Rd. Street Frontage Downtown Kingsford
Phase I: Present (12,570m²)

Phase II: 5-10 years (19,559m²)
The master plan simplifies the program into two buildings; a junior school and a senior school. The strong form of the church informs circulation patterns throughout the site. Identifying Bruce St. as the primary drop off point for students allows for a dynamic pathway extending through the senior school to the infants courtyard at the site’s western end.
Phase III: 10-30 years (25,698m²) St. Spyridon College
1. Address Church While the church lacks architectural significance, it plays an important role within Sydneyâ€™s Greek community and needed to be acknowledged in the design.
3. Elevate Education Spaces Classrooms are symbolically elevated within cantilevered volumes clad in preweathered copper, a nod to the schoolâ€™s religious context as well as the climate of Sydney. Building heights are varied to create hierarchy.
5. Establish a Clear Central Axis Building forms are manipulated to accentuate the linear progression from the Bruce St. entrance to the infants courtyard.
2. Create a Central Courtyard Building footprints are informed by the boundaries of the site and the form of the church, leaving a void to the North of the church.
4. Provide Enclosure The junior school forms an L-shape to create an enclosed playground area for grades K-2, maintaining a low profile to allow sunlight into the playground area.
6. Addition to Church Concrete volumes are added onto the church as an alternative to unsightly fire stairs, enhancing connectivity with the school buildings and providing additional space for Sunday school classrooms.

Design Development The studio was divided into two segments: the first dealt with master planning for the entire campus while the second focused on a single building within the proposal. I chose to focus on the senior school, as it houses a number of critical programmatic elements including an auditorium, gymnasium, and administrative offices. The building was developed to the point of detailed floor plans and sections, explaining the buildingâ€™s envelope and spatial layout.

SENSORY PAVILION Lawrence, KS Spring 2016 | Dirt Works Studio
The primary objective of the Audio Reader Network is to serve the vision-impaired community, both through their radio network and the creation of the Sensory Garden, which is filled with a variety of plantings intended to delight the senses and provide a tranquil experience for its users. Over time the Sensory Garden has evolved into a popular place within the community, not only for listeners of the Audio Reader Network but for families of the local community as well. Therefore, when the existing gazebo at the rear of the garden fell into disrepair, the Dirt Works Studio was granted the unique opportunity to design an addition to the garden that would both enhance the existing sensory experience and entice new visitors. Our proposal sought to introduce a dynamic yet unimposing structure, with the aim of complementing the garden’s aesthetic while also providing ample shelter. The signature feature of the open air pavilion is a 9 ft. rammed earth column, which acts to facilitate circulation along the existing brick pathway as well as to support the nail-laminated timber roof. Spatially, the pavilion seeks to provide seating via timber benches anchored to three rammed earth walls without acting as a literal enclosure. The pavilion’s feathered roof design symbolizes the idea of “reaching out into the garden,” a sort of gesture to the existing setting.

Schematic Design The initial phase of the studio consisted of a series of charrettes in which a variety of potential design solutions were discussed amongst all members of the studio. As the semester progressed, students were divided into specialized groups focusing on specific roles within the project. My role within the studio consisted primarily of SketchUp modeling and the preparation of presentation graphics.
Demolition of Existing Gazebo Before we could move forward with the construction of the pavilion, we first had to remove the existing gazebo at the rear of the garden. Whereas the gazebo acted as a terminus to the brick path that winds through the sensory garden, our design was predicated upon the idea of establishing a greater sense of continuity.

Construction Phase The methods used to construct the pavilion are indicative of our desire to create a pavilion that was truly of the garden. From the use of the shou sugi ban wood burning technique to the interlocking joints of the roof and timber screen, the pavilion seeks to strike a subtle presence within an already pristine setting.

AMELIA EARHART MUSEUM Atchison, KS Fall 2014 Completed in the fall semester of my second year in architecture school, this project was influential in forming a basis for my individual approach to design. Situated on a steeply sloped site overlooking the Missouri River and across from Amelia Earhart’s childhood home, the project was rich in context from the beginning and presented an opportunity to respond to a number of factors. This notion of contextual response is something that I seek to demonstrate in all of my projects, as I feel that acknowledging a project’s surroundings through its overall design is an important tool for unifying communities. Given the museum’s residential setting across from Earhart’s childhood home, which currently functions as a small museum itself, it was critical that the home’s views to the river not be inhibited. For this reason, the building seeks to maintain a subtle presence along the street while capitalizing on the dramatic slope of the site to provide maximal views from within.
Emulating Flight The buildingâ€™s form stems from the goal of emulating the wings of an airplane in the roof design. Further reinforcing the theme of aviation is the hanger-like appearance that is conveyed by the large structural trusses and column-free interior spaces. The buildingâ€™s interior is largely predicated on creating a variety of vantage points from which to view the river valley as well as the historic airplanes that are housed within.

ARCHITECTURE ABROAD University of New South Wales, Australia July - Nov. 2016
My decision to study in Australia was based primarily upon the desire to experience something completely different; something that I couldn’t find anywhere else. Given Australia’s relatively young history and harsh climate, the country’s architecture is incredibly diverse, responding to a wide range of environmental factors and foreign influences. I spent my time in Sydney exploring the city and familiarizing myself with a new culture, an experience that ultimately caused me to rethink my own approach to design.
Paris, France Dec. 2016 After living in a sharehouse with several European exchange students in Australia, I was eager to continue my travels. I had the chance to spend two weeks in Paris before returning home, a unique experience in the sense that I traveled from a relatively young city in Sydney to one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the world.
