collective healing Carle Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center Champaign, IL

Vision: The Catle Polytrauma Rebabilitation Center is dedicated to providing the highest-quality patient care through community involvement, integrated research, scientific discovery, and education for the purpose of maximizing the recovery of the individuals in our care. Our core values are represented in the Carle Strategic Plan, which in compliment with our research and collective healing spaces, establish a foundation for how we advance the ability of the people we serve. Mission: To advance human ability, the CPRC will not only serve as a landmark and educational hub for the awareness of veterans in the immediate ChampaignUrbana area, but the CPRC will also serve as the leading Midwest TBI rehabilitation center for the innovation and application of new and more promising treatments to improve and eliminate the effects of injury and debilitating health conditions, which will inevitably foster the wounded warriors back into our community.

Just like all renovations to hospitals, the flow and movement of people and traffic is severely changed and thus the site was taken into great consideration. To bring more people to the space, the design includes a boardwalk entrance to create impromtu meeting and awareness to the building. It is broken down into private and public sectors depending on the type of needs the person may have (inpatients, outpatients, children, senior citizens, special needs, etc). Because the parking lot was taken out, an on-site parking garage was introduced and thus, a canapy heating/cooling system was placed on the boardwalk to allow for ease of travel for the entire year.

Separation The team seperated the inpatient aspects with the outpatient and came up with the core space

View Set Back The overall concept incorporates a large campus design. In order to maximize views for the occupants, the building is set back in a “ying/yang� principle

Public vs Services

In order to accomidate for the large exterio public spaces, a small program is introduced not only house bathrooms, bike shelters and but it also serves as a barrier between the se space to the east and the public campus to

The design of the patient room was inspired through maximizing view points for both nurses and patients. This move was done due to our research of TBI victims. It was observed that patients with TBI had a faster and easier healing process when they were given the ability for larger exterior viewpoints to vegitation and the community.

ROOF DETAIL

LEFT: Large gathering spaces were placed at points of public egress as a way of creating impromptu meeting for all demographics going through the building. Due to the various types of people coming and going, it lent a perfect opportunity to establish a sense of community healing and thus, a very prosperous activity for in/outpatients. ABOVE: An organic-like sun shading system was incorporated due to the large amount of exterior glazing. The point was to maximize views and natural daylighting because research shows that the healing process is accellerated when both are given to patients. It also proved to be an excellent way to create a landmark, bringing attention to Carle campus. SPANDREL DETAIL

Walkable Facade A balcony system stems throughout the building’s facade as a way of creating easy-to-reach exterior spaces for occupants for optimal views to the events occuring on the boardwalk and campus

Building Gardens Cut-outs and various gardens are introduced to the building for ease of access for inpatients, and also to give private spaces for clinicians, outpatients, students and families

Southern Protection A MECCO shading system is placed on the south facade to protect the occupants from the harsh southern exposure from the sun, to promote balcony exploration and interaction

Mechanical Cover The building cover continues to wrap around to not only provide shading for the roof healing gardens, but also to cover the roof mechanical operations


the chicago loft High Rise Sustainable Tower Chicago, IL

Program: In a team of 4, design a practical and green high rise tower incorporating various programs and maximizing practical use for an economically driven world. Also, design a suitable HVAC and strucural system which will optimize energy use. Our vision: To develop, enhance, and maintain the beauty, culture and sophistication of a world-class city while creating a multi-functional urban landmark, which will enrich the lives of people who life, work, and visit there.

Elevator Core System The design’s shape was created through a series of design charrettes attempting to maximize the buildable area allowed on site while constructing a shape that would not only maximize in function, but also become a landmark in an ever-growing technological city. The structural and mechanical systems were designed not only to apply the most functional decisions, but also to bring down the overall costs and establish a more sustainable articulation.

The Chicago Loft’s elegant façade mimics our client’s intentions of a sophisticated high-class tower, while staying realistic in the economic and functional aspects of construction and maintenance. The tower’s “taper” is mandated from the lease span of each program, which not only maximizes the amount of allowable space per floor, but creates the graceful and dignified form.

We found a similar demographic resides in the Historic Mill District and Elliot Park but with different housing preferences. People moving downtown have an urban mindset and could be classified as the “creative class.” Adult couples without children, Gen Y’s, and empty nesters that prefer to live downtown are creating this resurgence.

Armory Open Market Apartment Courtyard Public rooms made from recycled shipping container Adaptive resuse of the Historic Armory Building Local food market and lunch venders provided daily

Storefronts can open up to both the street and the interior courtyard Day care neighborhood support activities this interior courtyard Solar panels and other sustainable building systems help buildings stay off the power grid Balconies provide private outdoor spaces and opportunities for more â&#x20AC;&#x153;eyes on the streetâ&#x20AC;?

I[de]nity aims to implement three sustainable measures throughout the development proposal. Adaptive reuse, alternaive transportation and run-off control can be found woven through every inch of the development site. Adaptive reuse can be found at the Minneapolis Armory, a proposed reuse of preexisting structure to become a grocery store and the use of shipping containers as a building material.


the gateway Indianapolis Net Zero Energy District Indianapolis, IN Program: I was assigned project manager of a team of 4 architecture students, an urban planner, and a landscape architect to design a net zero energy district. Our site was a 15 block area located Northwest of the Indianapolis Business District. We each split up to design the individual blocks (due to time) and the following is the project design for the entrance of the site, noted as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Gatewayâ&#x20AC;?. Publishing/ Notable Awards: www.nd20.org in May 2012 Media: 3D modeling in Rhinocerous, rendering in V-Ray for Rhino, working drawings in Revit and editing in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

The Gateway establishes a marketable combination of buildings, which creates an entrance corridor that excites and educates pedestrians off site of sustainable strategies. The streetscape is completely renovated to accommodate the car and walking person in order to promote Walkability, bikeability and easy/ safe traveling nearby. The two towering mixed-use residential buildings create open views to the context of downtown Indianapolis; most importantly the historic War Memorial.

creating centers Gresham Smith Design Competition Indianapolis, IN Program: Design a community center that creates an exciting atmosphere to hold a multitude of activities and people promoting togetherness. The building must be LEED Silver so sustainable aspects must be incorporated throughout. A memorial to mothers and to Julia Carson must also be established within the design. This competition was done with a partner. Publishing/ Notable Awards: Design Finalist Media: 3-D modeling in Rhinocerous, rendering with V-ray for Rhino.

Intent of the project: The Julia Carson Community Center features a series of ‘centers’ designed to unite the scheme and provide spaces for gathering, collaboration, visibility, and celebration. Recognizing how good, sustainable design can positively impact a community, the building and site are intended to be a catalyst for neighborhood change and strengthen community bonds. The JCCC draws connections throughout the site, within the Fall Creek Neighborhood, and in the greater Indianapolis area. A showcase feature of the main building draws attention to the entire scheme, highlighting it, and establishing it as a beacon of light in a formerly ‘dark’ neighborhood

Program: Design a sustainability awareness center in which people are able to learn about passive and active building systems. The overall building also must incorporate the systems presented and studied (geothermal, solar collection, greywater retainment, etc). The site is in Brooklyn, NY located on the bay near a combination of residential and commercial buildings, overlooking Manhattans skyline.

Intent of the project: Create an architecture that manipulates the AIR AND LIGHT intake by incorporating various passive and active systems throughout the facade using an HVAC CAGE-SYSTEM integrated into the building. The system clearly presents its operational, environmental and mechanical systems and creates a totally open floor plan. Design a STRUCTURAL SYSTEM that can hold the multiple cantilever forces throughout the floor slabs. Integrate a GEOMETRICALLY REPETITIVE layout which makes assembly inexpensive and understanding of the building, and its circulation, obvious.
