FORWARD LIVING Fall 2016 Arch 206 Studio Taylor Marshall + Marissa Gomez
The idea of a slanted building came from the concept of biophilia. The site is located in the busy area of Fort Worth, therefore, the client would potentially be stuck in a 3,000 square foot building during the night as well as congested in a bustling city during the day. In order to be enriched with the environment, the building portrudes into the streets. There is also a balcony in the back, facing a quieter side of town.

DESIGN PROCESS: starting with a box and ending with a natural form
Synergetic carries the concept of interaction throughout the household. The curved walls seperate each room but still carry an open floor plan, enabling the residents to talk to each other from distinct rooms. There is also an opening in the top floor so the family can interact from dierent stories.
D-FORM SCULPTURE Fall 2015 Arch 105 Studio
The D-Form started from two different 2-D shapes with the same perimeter. The edges of the shapes were put together to create a form. After the form was created, rockite was poured into the form. A base was then made to accentuate the form.
PLYWOOD ARCH Fall 2015 Arch 105 Studio Taylor Marshall + Linda Reyes
The arch was made to learn how to manipulate plywood. My partner and I etched lines equally throught each piece of plywood and then soaked the wood for 15 minutes each. We then stuck the plywood into a form work that we made to enhance the curves of the plywood. Once the piece was dried, we connected them to each other through slits lazer cut in the pieces.
THE NAPBAR Fall 2017 Arch 206 Studio
The NapBar is a place on campus for students to take a quick nap in between classes. Texas A&M University has enough resources for studying, eating and socializing, but there are few places where students can successfully take a nap. Sleep is neccessary for the focus of students, as well as retaining information, creativity and health. It is located on main campus, in between the Quad and Kyle Field for easy access.
AGGIELAND HUMANE SOCIETY Spring 2017 Arch 206 Studio Taylor Marshall + Mackenzie Anderson + Macy Anderson
The Aggieland Humane Society was designed with the intention of creating a natural, yet organic form, for easy circulation and to utilize the maximum amount of square footage. There is an overhang leading visitors from the parking lot into the large garden center. In this center, dogs can play and people can observe their behavior.
The floor plan shows the elegant flow from the road to the main complex. Once inside the complex, the visitor can go to either the dog and cat adoption center, spay and neuter clinic, or lost and found kennels easily and without confusion. The master plan also leads out into the pond, where dogs will be trained by staff.
CATALONIA CENTER FOR DEMOCRACY Fall 2017 Carc 301 Studio Taylor Marshall + Marissa Gomez
The Catalonia Center of Democracy stands as a gathering space for the people of Barcelona. Barcelonaâ€™s urban context includes the Eixample, an organized street grid, and the Old Town, a cluster of streets with no obvious reasoning. The site is located in between these two opposite city plans. Itâ€™s location is in the center of important public spaces and is easily accessible from all neighborhoods within Barcelona.
The concept of the Center of Democracy is transparency. This is aquired through materiality and an interior central void. This void allows visual access to each floor from every perspective within the space. A person can see what is happening underground, which is the auditorium, and above to the rooftop space. There is a sense of lightness and heaviness at the same time. The natural light coming from the light well in the void is invaded by the series of staircases that create a vertical connection and complexity to the entire design.
A series of terraces were designed with a calculated system of skylights and privacy walls to add more natural light while obtaining privacy from the residence next door. On the main street, there are a series of floors that cantilever further onto the street with each escalating level. This way, the levels invade the street, but respect the alignment of the existing facade and keep a relatively equal height as well. By respecting and disrespecting the rules of Barcelona, a new space is created for people to gather, work and debate on pressing political issues.
