MIGUEL ALEMAN SOCIAL HOUSING PROFESSOR LARRY DOLL

SPRING 2016

Located in the border city of Migeul Aleman, Mexico, the MASH is an exploration into how dense housing developments can generate interactions with the structures or the community through the usage of movement and adjacency. Based upon the traditional multigenerational housing found in the city, the MASH is built around two unit typologies that cater to both families and individuals. These units are grouped together to allow for families, as they expand, to purchase adjacent units to accommodate everyone. Additionally, the individual plots of land provide opportunities where expansion could occur should the need arise. Select walls in each unit have the ability to slide, opening up interior spaces to the outside. For both units, this allows for a passive cooling strategy to be utilized as a cost saving method. In the family units, this is furthered by having the bedrooms placed within pods on a track that can be moved in and out of sunlight as a means to avoid heating.

By integrating sliding components into the design of the units, the spaces become customizable and flexible in program. In the case of the family size unit does this factor come into play in particular. The bedroom pods slide in and out of a central open area that through the positioning of the pods can fluctuate in size. The retractable windows can be placed in the open or closed position depending on one’s desire to have access to the yard. The entire ground floor of the family unit is to be shaped into an array of arrangements to best suit the residents’ needs.

BARTON SPRINGS PERFORMANCE PAVILION PROFESSOR JUDY BIRDSONG

FALL 2016

Barton Springs in located in the heart of Austin’s Zilker Park. Fed by four springs, Barton Springs is a spot of historical, recreational, and environmental significance. The BSPP not only aims to preserve the existing qualities of the Sunken Garden spring upon which it is built but also to reinvigorate the spot with new life and activity. The BSPP is comprised of a series of boardwalk that frame the spring and the creek and a series of structure at its eastern edge where events can take place. The overall design of the pavilion is based upon the expression of space in between the individual composite parts that make it up. By being formed in this tectonic manner, the layers of construction become highly expressive. The lightness of this is countered by the heaviness of the stone walls that ring the spring and the density of the underbrush that is planted across the site.

BROWNSVILLE WEST RAIL TRAIL PROFESSOR EDNA LEDESMA

FALL 2017

Divided into two halves for over a century, the border city of Brownsville, Texas has been shaped both physically and demographically by a commercial freight line. Abandoned in 2015, this railroad corridor provides the growing city with a potential for change. The Brownsville West Rail Trail Proposal serves as a response to this opportunity. Based upon the concept of ‘localism,’ the BWRT responds to the environment adjacent to the trail and integrates the local context into a proposed green corridor. This acts as a means to restitch east in west Brownsville together in a seamless manner in regards to programmatic function. Additionally, supporting programs have been added along the trail to better the existing area. ‘Localism,’ in regards to the BWRT, comes in six primary categories- healthy mobility, green infill, social cohesion, public infrastructure, diverse economy, and housing opportunities- and their associated features.

The former railroad switchyards, located on the southern end of the trail adjacent to downtown, serves as one of the primary locations on which our proposal can generate a large impact. Currently comprised of mainly abandoned warehouses, the switchyards provide a nearly black slate for development rarely found in the center of the city. The switchyards, as seen through the lens of the BWRT proposal serves as new cultural and economic for the city and contains a collection of high-density housing to support these feature. With the trail running along the western edge of the area, the trail will act as an artery through which the remainder of the city can access the development. Open spaces, such as plazas and pedestrian corridors, and built aside new developments as a means to create a self-sustaining community that also fosters interact with the entire city.

BEAUX ARTS BALL 2017 MEDIA MARCH 2017

Based upon the graphic designs of Maurice Binder (1918-1991), the media for the Beaux Arts Ball evokes the imagery and iconography of the film in 1960s and 1970s. The bold silhouettes that adorn the tickets call back to Binder’s iconic openings for the films such as Spectre and The Spy Who Loved Me while the geometric designs evoke memories of films such as Dr. No and Charade. The bright and saturated colors that were commonplace in pop art at the time are paired with a stark, black background, creating a more contemporary and bold appearance. This color scheme is further amplified by the inclusion of white, generally seen in text, a color that seeming jumps out of the page no matter its position in the composition. This juxtaposition of black, white, and color helps generate a sense of layering on an otherwise flat image.

SOUTH CONGRESS BRANCH LIBRARY PROFESSOR JENNA DEZINSKI

FALL 2015

Located in one of Austin’s most popular tourist areas, the SCBL is designed to become an iconic destination amongst the shops and restaurants of South Congress while still providing a public space suitable for the families living in the surrounding neighborhoods. To achieve this, the SCBL was designed to become a new front lawn for South Austin. Designed as a multilevel park, the SCBL merges the traditional stacks and reading rooms of a library with a connection to the outdoors through the inclusion of rooftop gardens and city views. Linear pathways through the building are designed in a way to encourage interaction with the outdoors, bringing people inside and out as they wander around. This is most evident on the ground level where the grand entrance to the library is an outdoor space. To further progress through the building, you must go inside and back out, keeping you keenly aware of your surroundings.

INFILLING THE VOID PROFESSOR BRANDON CUFFEY

SPRING 2017

How could the walls that surround us be utilized if they were no longer solid? In Infilling the Void, the wall is replaced with a 3D matrix into which individuals can input a variety of modules in order to form a new ‘wall’ that best suits their needs. This iteration of Infilling the Void focuses upon how this matrix scheme can be used an object upon which users can grow a new environment then compared to the one around them. Envisioned for the Atacama Desert in central Chile, the ITV’s main prerogative is to harness the camanchaca or marine fog for its moisture as a means of sustaining it horticultural program. The superstructure if embedded with moisture collecting windsocks, planters, piping, shading louvers, and privacy panels that can be configured in a variety of arrangements that reflect needed use.

FARMER’S PLAZA MARKET AND GREENHOUSE PROFESSOR MICHAEL GARRISON

SPRING 2018

Located in the heart of downtown Austin, the Farmer’s Plaza is an urban center for agricultural production, distribution, education, and retail. Built upon the remains of a former steel plant, Farmer’s Plaza reinterprets this industrial heritage as a contemporary green landmark for the city. As the exposed steel structure and brickwork evoke this past, the extensive glazing systems allow for visitors to see the new programs of greenhouses and retail instantly. Louvers and screens, used to filter light for the plants, give texture and depth to the facades of the building and allow for each bay to be customized based on interior needs. This dynamic facade allows the building to morph over time, allowing it to grow and adapt just as the plant inside do.
