HAELEN VETERAN RESOURCE CENTER Loneliness is a major factor in veteran depression, it compounds the impacts of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), it creates cycles of avoidance with others, and leads many veterans to suicide. Despite a clear need for connections, organizations like the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and the American Legion are closing their doors due to lack of membership from the millennial generation. The Haelen Veteran Resource Center’s objective is to build community, in a new way, through creating spaces that aid in a veteran’s transition back into civilian society. This project explores how architecture can promote community through psychological wellness using: an awareness of veteran environmental anxieties, sensory strategies to aid individual openness, programming tailored to veteran propensities and need for self determinism, methods promoted by the Veterans Administration (VA) for treating PTSD symptoms.

Programming Haelen Veteran Resource Center provides moments for veterans to connect to one another in ways that support their transition, and new lifestyles. Thriving off of what makes veterans unique while promoting healthy activities, the resource center can connect veterans of all walks, without labeling itself as a place for only those in need. Veterans offer unique programmatic opportunities for intervention such as physical activity and professional entrepreneurship. These program types increase self fulfillment through self determinism, and promote healthy bonding experiences through shared activity.

Sensory Strategies Looking at what might trigger an unwanted response from veterans, this project set out to decrease built stressors and increase elements that would put a veteran more at ease. Elements such as sharp corners, doors, fenestration and corridors, are treated as threats, as they tend to restrict sight and movement. However, increasing transparency, familiarity, and exits can be tools for relaxation, as they provide sight lines, and options of movement and planning. Keeping these elements in mind while developing the intervention creates a more welcoming environment for transitioning veterans.

RAIDER CABIN The Raider Cabin is a mentor-mentee facility that connects combat veterans with nature, and each other, by providing spaces to be alone and together. The cabin starts at grade on the north end of the site and quickly rises above the trees to the south. Each wing flares, framing views across the valley below. Dividing the cabin on the north end allowed private spaces to be separate from one another, and created communal space outside of the cabin opening to the west. The walls take on the challenge of the gabion system, and attempt to mask the roof gutter, as found in contemporary Scandinavian cabins.

INNOVATION CAMPUS The Creative Enterprise Zone (CEZ) urban design studio was a geo-design project that put 12 students efforts collectively on one large master plan. Each student was responsible for the collective master plan, and an individual intervention. The CEZ Innovation Campus capitalizes on the growing entrepreneurial, self employed, technology based, and creative jobs found in 2040. This portion of the CEZ is currently characterized by surface parking, industrial and commercial properties, and long distances to activities.

The aim of the Innovation Campus is to build community through collaboration & co-working, the promotion of entrepreneurship, incubation of ideas and acceleration of small business.

Site Circulation

Leveraging nearby initiatives, the plan creates an opportunity for patrons and professionals alike to work together, promote ideas, and build relationships. Institutional anchors such as the University of Minnesota and nearby medical facilities bring the influence of academia to growing businesses and promote innovation. The plan repurposes some industrial sites, while responding to the overall East CEZ initiative.

Wood F.O.A.M

Tim Shortreed | Alex Greenwood | Trevor Kinnard

Intervention can occur with wood at multiple scales and transverse varied fields of interest. When wood is reduced beyond board size to wood chips and sawdust, it loses structural value but retains value on a biological and chemical level. Intervening at the waste scale, Wood F.O.A.M uses multiple methods of aeration to achieve a rigid, workable, and lightweight material that reacts with heat, light, and sound differently across its body, while maintaining an aesthetic of uniformity. Wood F.O.A.M reuses an age old technique for creating bread, during a time of starvation, and repurposing it for today’s construction, in a time of lessening raw materials. The product questions the difference between food and shelter, feminine and masculine building practices, domestication and industrial strategies, and the total use of a beginning material (ie the tree).

OPENOFFICE OpenOffice is a spec. office project that focuses on structural systems and cladding. This project spans 17 floors and sits on St. Paul, Minnesota’s Mississippi River Balcony. As an ode to neighboring towers, OpenOffice captures the brick and stone texture of its surroundings, and interprets it in a terracotta panel that breaks up its otherwise glass facade. Unique challenges to the project are: connecting to a future expansion of the River Balcony Walk, and gaining natural light in deep spaces due to the balcony. In an effort to overcome these issues, the building steps back at the 6th floor and houses parking underneath, while the remaining floors share alternating green spaces.

ART & DETAILS This collection of miscellaneous projects consists of academic, private, and professional work. I chose to highlight my interest in details and watercolor as they are my more favorite things to work on. Detailing as an art is a bit like a puzzle, I mostly enjoy exploring the different ways to make things work. Similarly, painting and sketching allows me to explore a subject in a new way, finding connections, and beauty in the forms of the natural and built environment. Also included are renderings, and photographs from personal and professional work.
