Denver Vertical Farm As urban sprawl increase, more space will be needed for agriculture The vertical farm is a new building typology that is meant to help counter act the lack of agricultural land close to cities. The vertical farm can also function year run, providing produce for the people of the city for the entire year. The public market and outdoor space links the farm to the public parks near by. The space will connect people to agriculture on an urban level.

For a farm such as this to function there needs to be climate control for the rest of the day without sunlight. So to allow sun in during the day an keep the farm insulated at night, the farm was designed with an operable skin that could close up to keep in heat.

Unitarian Campus The best thing people can do for the land is to leave it better than when it was found The Unitarian goal with the land is to preserve nature, so that they can be a part of it in this space. The campus serves that purpose in altering the land in only a few places, while using circulation pathways to channel water and improve the space in between the buildings with vegetation to serve as natural shading.

The main focus of the campus was to provide a space that could be used year round with out any conditioning systems. To make that possible the spaces were designed to be interchangeable, as shown in the previous diagram, so that the social hall and sanctuary could move to the space that best fits the weather at the time it is needed.

Tucson 2050 A visionary plan to transform Tucson into a more water efficient and carbon neutral city As a group of ten, myself and my fellow class mates went about developing a master plan for Downtown Tucson. This effort utilized the resources of previous class research, our instructor and city officials input. The culmination of this effort was a book titled Tucson 2050: A Vision for a Future Downtown and an exhibition in downtown Tucson that allowed us to engage with the public and the press in a variety of ways in order to get feedback for the next volume of the book.

During the process of creating the book for the master plan, the class divided into pairs to each cover their own topic and work together to develop ideas. The topic that I developed was that of Transportation and the infrastructure tied to it. The topic of Transportation was tied to the topic of Energy which both worked together to establish carbon neutrality for the city. The infrastructure team was made up of the topics of Transportation, Energy, Water and Open Space. Unlike the other groups, infrastructure was city wide rather than tied to a specific sub-district of the city, and thus were responsible for creating different components to be used by the city, such as the SMART Garage depicted on previous pages. Along with these components, the infrastructure team also created the day in the life of diagrams in order to analyze the lives of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s occupants within the plan for 2050. For the exhibit, we were tasked with finding ways to engage with the citizens of Tucson that were not too cumbersome for the people to understand in a few moments. I worked together with another classmate to implement a physical survey using strings to make the choices offered by the survey. In a physical activity, people are able to relate to thier answer, and feel in shaping the activity.

Tucson Academy of the Desert The Academy of Rome allows artists to learn from the city, The Academy of Tucson allows artists to learn from the desert The site of Bear Canyon in the Catalina Mountains north of Tucson makes for an engaging site with the desert. The campus aggregates into three zones, Arrival, Communal, and Living. Each ares meets different needs for the type of user for the space. The project houses twelve artists for a six month period. Hikers also frequent the site, so more public areas are made more available while less public areas are separated.
