Denver Vertical Farm Unitarian Campus Tucson 2050 - Future Downtown Tucson Desert Academy
4 12 24 32
Vertical Farm Location
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 Location
Saguaro National Forest
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.
2050 COMPONENT SMART GARAGE
Component Breakdown The SMART Garage serves as a mixed use space that with a primary focus on autonomus vehicle charging and storage. When vehicle storage is not needed it can be used for urban agriculture, and other programs such as galleries or offices.

1 - Local Food Production
Locally grown agriculture provides fresh food options for within the city year round.
“The next streetcar arrives at 7:30 and autonomous car can arrive in 5 minutes.”
1 - Quiet Environment social benefits
Low density neighborhoods create a private environment for raising a family.
2 - Water Collection
Individually owned water collection gives the home owners access to water that can be used aside from city water.
2 - Energy Generation
The garage generates enough energy to power the functions of the garage and charge autonomous vehicles.
3 - Economic Generator
The spaces in the garage are interchangeable to allow the use to change based off of demand.
3 - Walkable Community
The walkability of the community makes the streets safer for kids.

“Autonomous vehicle, streetcar and bike share are all near enough to use.”
1 - Share Point social benefits
Data on home energy and water usage, among other data, can be easily viewed by people at the NEXUS.
1 - Transit Oriented Housing Housing designed planned with transit in mind to give people even access to public transit.
2 - Water for All
The water collected by the NEXUS is made potable and offered as drinking water to visitors.
3 - Heat Mitigation
The NEXUS offers a shaded place to rest or wait for autonomous vehicle pickup.
2 - Job Growth
Development based around public transit to encourage use of public transit over personal transit.
3 - Street Safety
Separation of modes of transit to make streets safer for those walking along the street.

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€™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.
