01 LSU Restorative Garden--Audubon Hall Courtyard

The restorative garden on LSU campus is located between Audubon Hall and Woodin Hall. The proposed elements selected to meet the requirements for restorative gardens and to reduce stress based on research by Roger Ulrich and the Kaplans. To receive this goal, the pathways and garden spaces are designed to encourage people stop and explore the garden. There is a variety of seating choices that people can make in either open or private settings. The extensive and interesting of plant materials can not only screen the seating area from the main path but also provide a positive distraction and potential contact with nature. People are also given the option to enjoy sunshine in the open spaces or choose to enjoy the shaded private quiet spaces.

The primary goal of the design is to create a restorative space for students to have a rest and release from pressure during classes break and lunch time. The design intent is to give the main users-students different kinds of spaces that they can explore, escape and enjoy. The proposed main path consists of an organic, curvilinear shape connecting three interesting spaces, which include water feature area, statement art area and private seating area. At the entry, there is an arbor and wild grass setting to navigate people into the garden upon entering the garden. People can see the delicate water bowls on the limestone paving area and enjoy the natural sound while seating on the surrounding benches. The statement art area is relatively open. The big pinwheels installation on the annual bedding has warm color and can rotate with the wind, providing a distraction which has been found to be restorative to stressed people. Moving to the east of the site, higher density plant materials for screening decking seating with a platform partially hidden within the plant area to create a private place for escaping from the crowds. A 3’ green wall will be built along the handrails of Audubon Hall that can be a striking element and can also partially screen people’s view in the building.

Mid-City Government Neighborhood Planning --Revitalizate the Neighborhood and Commercial Street The final project is about to plan the Mid-City Government Street to revitalize the neighborhood and commercial Street. The design concept is to balance the commercial and residential area and provide various attractive and comfortable public spaces. The site is designated to build a train station as a population gathering areas. Thus, it is important to design an adjacent commercial area to serve people getting off from the train. As residents tend to live at quieter place away from noise. To balance the different demands, I concentrate the commercial area to one street and the Entergy property. To decrease the risk of coming train, I move the main gathering linear park to the residential side. The park has multiple functions as gathering plaza area, residential activity area and detention pond.

Planting Plan ( Playground and Outdoor Fitness Area) This park is located between the very busy commercial area and high density residential area. The design purpose is to keep the activity park area away from the noisy and busy street to make the playground and fitness place safe and quiet. So, I use a lot of evergreen big trees as hedge to block people’s vision from plaza and street to this area. To make the playground area more fun, I put some striking flower shrubs and trees such as Azalea, Lily Magnolia and Crape Myrtle. The east side is much more open than the west side, because east part of the park is a retention pond for drainage. The relatively open planting can transit well to the more wild and quiet detention pond area.

03 Site Design- Gulf introcoastal Waterway Western Closure Complex

The project in my site (GIWW) is a part of the New Orleans Drainage System; it consists of a navigable floodgate, a pumping station, floodwalls, sluice gates, foreshore protection, and an earthen levee. The complex was designed to reduce risk for residences and businesses in the project area from a storm surge. We are supposed to design several highlight spaces for people to experience the surrounding environment, get the knowledge about West Closure Complex and feel the dynamic change of this site. This is a site that give surrounding residents more public places to have fun, enjoy the nature and be aware of the precious land.

Right after the structure completed, The water edge is actually a whole new because this area was woody wetland , so it is more like a secondary succession when the time goes. At this time, this land is predominated by lawn, and is a little steep slope towards the levee.

04 Shaping Pattern+Process

Along the Mississippi Flyway Group Project: Yimeng Wang and Yinan Liu 2014 Spring Professor Forbes Lipschitz

Our project this semester is try to Use a telescopic approach, reshape regional landscape patterns and patches along the Mississippi flyway. The aim is to develop generative spatial patterns that optimize ecological, cultural, and economic processes. This project employs a synthetic, multi-scale approach to the design and representation of regional landscapes.

Site Measures: Geograhy

Our first step is to do seven analysis of our site which is from Baton Rouge to Natchez along Mississippi River. The geography part gives the basic topographic map of this site and displays the transportation, elevation and land cover clearly. The soil and rock profile are effected by topography and hydrology, and the quality of soil and water also affect the distribution of land use.

Sections are cutting the developed areas including cities, towns and important airport and national conservation areas such as national forest and national wildlife refuge.

River Water Body

Water affects soil formation, structure, stability and erosion. Different soil has different rates of infiltration, which means if it is well drained and has a rate of water transmission. The blue area is Group A, which has a high infiltration rate. The dark area means their infiltration rates are low and cannot drain away water well. Group D consists chiefly clay that has a high shrink-swell potential. Urban area also has very low infiltration rate because of its construction.

Dominant Soil Hydrologic Group

Soil provides minerals and water to plants. The type of soil and available moisture determine the species of plants that can be cultivated. The map shows different soil and places have various limitations for cultivating plants. The two orange patches mean they have relatively good ability for cultivating. The dark patches have not good, and even worse capacity for cultivating.

Natural and Constructed Wetland Research Constructed Wetland Morphology In order to solve the pollution problem, we began our basic research about how constructed and natural wetlands work. From the morphology, we find out that no matter how patterns change from each other, that have the same character, which is they slow down and meander the water.

Wetland Typology Unit

After we knows how the wetlands work, we design 5 types of wetland typologies to fit different areas. There are some abandoned oxbow lakes that can be transformed as constructed wetlands or hybrid wetlands. We are also considering to control the nutrient runoff from three perspectives: agriculture cropland, livestock&manure and urban areas. The scale is from large to small. The small type can be used in more urban area, while big scale type can be used in large site like agricultural farmland to clean huge mount of water.

Swine Palace Amphitheater Design Our program is to execute a conceptual design and construction documents for the outdoor extention of the Reilly Theater. The program includes a covered pavilion, an amphitheater with seating for 45-60 people approximately, and sufficient pedestrian access from the existing Reilly Theater to the pavilion and ultimately the amphitheater. The construction documents are supposed to clearly define the proposed topographic changes, as well as the structural details for the terracing, pavilion, and stage.

Visual Lighting Design

Using the orange compact lighing bulb, fabrics and chipboard model to form a contrast feeling between different materials.

Physical Lighting Model This class is based on light works in both real and virtual environment. We learned basic terms about light and how to build models (just for the purposes of studying how light functioning) in both environments.

33

The wood blocks are used as steps that people can really step on. We use the Processing to trck people’s movement so that the light color changes as people move.

Using AfterEffect to do a animation of light outlining. Combine the projector and physical model to show a motion illusion of the object.
