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.

Building BGSF After designing the program, our team came up with the allowable perimeters for our building if it were to become a 5 story, mid-rise rectangle

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 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.

bluegrass run Urban Land Institute Competition Nashville, TN

Program: In a timeframe of 2 weeks, I worked as a team leader and urban designer in an interdisciplinary team of 5 (2 architects, 2 urban planners, 1 buisiness law) to analyze and design a new urban framework for a 200,000 square foot, flood ridden North Nashville area. Our proposed design, Bluegrass Run, is an innovation in not only the architecture, but also the urban scale, connecting various programs to promore a healthy living situation. The final development looked at all aspects including construction phasing, urban design, architecture, landscape architecture and the calculation of building performa.

bluegrass run embracing water Community Connectivity

By completing the downtown Nashville development corridor along the Cumberland River through an integrated universal design of ample open spaces alongside mixed density urban program providing a sense of community.

Ecological Performance Media: 3D modeling in Rhinocerous and google sketchup, rendering in V-Ray for Rhino, working drawings in AutoCADD and editing in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, building performa calculated through microsoft excel.

Embracing the natural stormwater flow paths to elminate runoff in the broader community, reduces impact on the surrounding area, protecting the community from exposure to future flood risk.

Healthy Living

The Bluegrass Runâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water flow paths forge an active setting of pathways and building edges that entice the user to travel using alternative methods for a healthier, more active lifestyle.

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. Photo editing and diagrams in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and floor planning in autoCAD. Modeling utilizing Laser Cutters


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


geometric simplicity Green Workforce Training Center Brooklyn, NY

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. Media: 3-D modeling in Rhinocerous, rendering with V-ray for Rhino and Adobe Photoshop


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.


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.


blended learning CRIPE Architects Design Competition (finalist) St. Croix, Virgin Islands (U.S.) Program: Design a net zero campus style research center specializing in Marine Biology. The buildings and layout are placed strategically to promote collaboration, establish a type of community enhancement, and enhance the green technology. These technologies establish a sense of connection to the site, serve as an active teaching tool, and facilitate the research of additional innovative sustainable strategies. The site location is East of Salt River Bay. Media: 3D modeling in Rhinocerous, rendering in V-Ray for Rhino, working drawings in Revit and editing in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.


The design of each laboratory was manifested from the section view. Each assembly has a purpose that betters the overall design. These systems are designed to maximize sun distribution, thermal quality, passive air systems, water collection and treatment, weather protection and low cost construction. Each of these systems are to promote the overall goal of a net zero energy campus.


stuart davis artist museum Artist Analysis and Design Muncie, IN Program: Study the artistic style of a specific artist and design a building to supplement the the art they created. My artist was Stuart Davis; a modernist painter who was heavily influenced by the jazz era in the 1940s. Due to Stuarts incredibly vibrant proto pop art style of painting, I decided to take an opposite approach and not let the building take away from his paintings by creating a rather cubist building. Media: 3D modeling in Rhinocerous, rendering in V-Ray for Rhino, working drawings in AutoCADD and editing in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.


The intricate layering Stuart uses in his painting was a starting point to this design. It then transfered into a facade move. Obviously sun shading would be a high concern for the art museum, and so this is where the perferated panelling and wooden louvres come in. The panelling would be used as vegitated walls and sun shading for the circulation spaces within. There is also an extensive greenroof to reduce sun reflection


The model showcases how this buiding has the opprotunity to become a landmark and node for the campus setting. The large amount of glass creates a 360 degree view of the campus from within. The perforated panels are designated to places which require both more privacy than others and more protection from the sun. The building also showcases exterior spaces that wrap around the building to allow for students to oversee the campus.


topo_graphics Indiana Concrete Masonry Competition (finalist) Indianapolis, IN

Program: Design a sustainability awareness center in Indianapolis. Two 30’x5’x30’ diagramactic passive system models are to be integrated into the building as examples of green design systems. The site is located on the White River (30’ wide) in downtown Indianapolis. Small commercial buildings are scattered throughout the area. Media: 3-D modeling in Rhinocerous, hand drafting in ink, tonal value in graphite, entourage in Adobe Photoshop.


Extreme level changes were used as a way of creating a natural runoff for rainwater. Light shelves were used to diffuse the large amount of light going through the angled glass facades. Green roof design and angled walls were used to further explore the grey water distribution process. The open floor plan allows for large amounts of people to feel comfortable in the space and view the large passive models moving through the entire building. Heat chimneys are also used to naturally cool and heat the building. The integration of all CMU structural walls was used because the sponsor for the event was the Indiana Concrete Masonry Organization.

Program: Design a gift shop and gathering space for college students at Ball State University. The concept is based on the physical nature and feelings behind the designers most “precious object”. This “precious object” for this project is a silicon bracelet which, for its owner, brings feelings of a connection to home and the peace and happiness that comes with it. The site is located in the village area at Ball State University in Muncie, IN. Media: 3-D modeling in Rhinocerous, hand drafting in ink, tonal value in graphite and colored pencil.


The design started as a manipulation of the physical aspects of the silicon bracelet in order to find spacial relationships. Due to the organic feel of the resulting areas, and the necessity of a programmatic space, a geometric overhanging structure was incorporated to contextualize the green serpentine configuration. The area is intended for large student gatherings so most of the site is focused on the outdoors. The only indoor portion of the site is used for shopping and viewing the spaces and activities below.


muncie fire dept. training facility Muncie, IN

Program: Design a renovation to an existing fire department that will incorporate not only appropriate fire-fighting equiptment, but also serve as a center for new recruits to live, dine and train year round. The integration of a communitybased museum for the previous fire department was also a priority. The site is located in downtown Muncie, IN. There is an abandoned gas station, as well as small residential housing across the street. Media: 3D modeling in Rhinocerous, hand drafting with ink, tonal value with graphite


Planes were used to designate the various zones on the site. The planes were then angled in order to create a conceptual section view in which the program could be incorporated. The large ramping structure on the roof of the building is used as a way for community members to fully embrace the site and the various forms of the composition. The old museum is gutted and glazed with a glass facade for on-lookers to appreciate the structural aspects of the historical building. The museum is integrated into below grade. Large panes of glass surround the building for pedestrians to look into the museum area and notice the level changes. The gym and training center are located at the opposite end of the building where classrooms, meeting rooms, living quarters and the lecture hall are located for the men and women training to become firefighters.

Hand drafting and various sketching/ tonal techniques were used to incorporate into the drawing the various elements of the site including, but limited to, water, topography, buildings, landscape, and roading. All drawings were done on vellum paper.


graphite sketching Sketching and tonal technique has always been a large incorporation into all of my design process. This art allows an architect to confidently express the ideas of a project design and fully comprehend why each line and plane is important.


By being able to sketch and draw using different techniques, an architect is able to further push the development of percieving depth and scale in each of his design concepts. This can become a great advantage for an aspiring architect because more and more students are not educated how to use thier hand before relying on computers, which, I believe, severely cripples the design phase of projects.
