PATCHWORK HOUSING Stuttgart, Germany Situated in the Europa District of Stuttgart, a former freight depot and railroad switching yard, the mixed-use housing project is located directly on Mailander Square in the heart of this new urban neighborhood. The complex creates three, distinct urban outdoor spaces, which simultaneously unite and extend the project out into the surrounding urban context. Commercial and retail space comprise the first two levels, with a mixture of residential typologies rising above. The heart of this project centers around the â€œPatchwork Housingâ€? concept: a complex of 14 apartment units of varying sizes serving as a multi-generational model for the community. Each unit is self-contained, but generous amounts of community space accompany the units, encouraging interaction between inhabitants. Spring 2012

RESIDENTIAL COURTYARD This enclosed courtyard is seen as a semi-private area of retreat for residents of the complex. Openings to the street, alley, and plaza allow for physical and visual connections to the surrounding complex.
URBAN LIVING ROOM An extension of Mailander Square, this outdoor plaza is sunken one level below grade, creating an urban â€œsunken living room.â€? Connecting directly to the square, a grand set of stairs descend into the plaza, doubling as an outdoor seating area for open air concerts and events.

The pedestrian-only alleyway offers the visitor and resident a more intimate setting of urban living. Lined with live/ work studio spaces, cafes, and retailers, the Creative Alleyway invites one to retreat from the hectic surroundings and linger. The alleyway is also seen as a pedestrian artery, complimenting the parallel street, connecting people to the southern or northern portions of the district.

MONASTERY HILL EXHIBITION SPACE Oberelchingen, Germany Steeped in history, the building is located on the former site of a 12th century Benedictine monastery and also the Battle of Elchingen, where Napoleonic troops defeated Austrian forces in 1805. The project focused on integrating a contemporary building into a strong historic context. Shifted forms respond to the two programmatic requirements of the space: an exhibition space for the existing churchâ€™s artifacts and overnight accommodations for traveling pilgrims en route to Spain via the St. Jamesâ€™ Way. In turn, these shifted elements also frame the former monastery cloister of the 12th century abbey. While dutifully respecting the historic context, the building also stands in contrast to the surrounding structures through the sculptural, subtracted concrete forms. Fall Winter 2011-2012

RETHINKING THE NICU Asked to reinterpret, improve, and reinvent existing health care spaces, this project takes on the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. With careful consideration to the infant, family, and caregiver, the NICU is designed to accommodate the needs of all. Curvilinear forms create designated space and privacy for the infant and parents. The space intends to include the parents as much as possible in the infant’s healing process, so conscientious thought was put into the design of the family zone. An encouraging, healing environment is thus established, with the aim of transforming the infant into a healthy, strong baby upon his or her emergence from the “cocoon”-like NICU room. All perspectives and images were created using a 1” = 1’ scale model of the space. Winter 2011

WEAVING URBAN FABRIC: LENTS ECO-DISTRICT Portland, Oregon Located in Southeast Portland, this project concentrated on a 43 acre site within the culturally diverse neighborhood of Lents. In conjunction with the Portland Eco-District Initiative, the project centered on restoring surrounding natural habitats, promoting increased density, establishing sustainable water management, and creating neighborhood-wide identity. Taking conceptual inspiration from a loom, green corridors, urban agriculture plots, and varying housing typologies are woven together to form a network of urban fabric. This project was completed with group members Sinead Quinn and Madeline Carroll. Fall 2010

1. INFRASTRUCTURE & RESTORATION
2. COMMERCIAL NODES AND EDGE DEFINITION
3. DEVELOPING A NEIGHBORHOOD PATTERN
The first phase begins with reconnecting streets to those across 92nd Avenue, creating a more usable grid to grow off of. Green corridors will be established on former streets allowing for pedestrian and wildlife movement. To the South, Johnson Creek will be restored and widened, creating a riparian zone and urban flood plane.
The zone to the north will be transformed into a mixed use and high-density node. 92nd Ave. will be redesigned as a pedestrian and bike friendly boulevard. An extended green buffer on the east will provide visual blockage and noise control to the adjacent freeway, while the Lents Plaza to the South will be established, serving as a place for farmers markets and gathering.
Development will start along the main corridors and then continue inward, promoting interest in the Lents Neighborhood. Any historic housing stock or community buildings will be preserved. A wide variety of typologies will be implemented: row houses, four-plexes, multi-family apartments, and condos, which will attract a diversified range of inhabitants.

MARKER RENDERINGS Completed through a media seminar focusing on the development and refinement of marker rendering techniques, these drawings were a part of the final project for the class. A mixture of Copic markers and colored pencils, each rendering was then taken into Photoshop for further enhancement.
