    Creativity is a powerful characteristic, a stimulating ability evolving from our own originalities and perspectives. Creativity gives me the ability to fuse the surreal to reality, generating my own unique designs. This self expression helps define me as a unique individual.

    Having a fascination for how things are interlocked has furthered my outlook on life. This ranges from a personal computer to the way a building is constructed. Being focused with every detail as I design is one way I illustrate my ideas successfully. A fascination with the details on how things are put together has followed me throughout my life.

    It is a passion for detailed architecture that has kept my ambitions soaring. Attending three universities has given me various perspectives that demonstrate an appreciation for the built environment. Vincennes University provided me with the ground work for construction documents. Southern Illinois University provided myself with the ability to layer more knowledge of construction details and artwork. After my undergraduate work, I decided to attend Savannah College of Art and Design where I have received a balance of creativity and technical drawings. Architecture is a compelling and dominant force that has given me a sense of direction. It is my personal belief that architecture helps lay the groundwork for success and accomplishment in the future.

  • CelebRating natuRe & uRbanityProject Statement:Located on the west side of Charleston, South Carolina, the proposed site is a barrier between two economic sites. The connection between the urban fabric and nature has also been lost. Our proposal will re establish that connection as well as the connection between the Medical University of South Carolina and the proposed Horizon development project.

    MUSC has collaborated with the City

    of Charleston to develop the Horizon

    District as a vibrant, urban mixed-use

    community with retail, residential, and

    dedicated research office space. The land

    between the MUSC and the Horizon

    District is currently not used to its full

    potential. Our scheme will bring the

    nature back to the area and provide a

    resting ground for citizens and visitors.

The overall concept for the design was to include an institution that is walkable and desired. Using Savannah, GA as a base, we as a team created a series of parks that would create a pleasant journey from one end of the site to the other. These institution buildings were then connected with major arterial streets and a network of parks.

    Savannah, GA is well known for its

    walkability and green character. Its green

    square sprinkled throughout the district

    and short distances encourage the

    community to be outdoors and out of

    their vehicles.

    With the classrooms above, students

    will work their way from the field to

    the fork which is where the restaurant

    is located. The funnel

    is clearly illustrated in

    plan and perspective.

    The restaurant was

    visioned as exposed,

    as to where the food

    is exposed along with

    building materials on

    the interior.

    Project Statement:

    The neighborhood, with its ties to the civil rights movement, has one

    of the few strong small scale urban contexts still remaining in the

    sprawling metropolis of Atlanta. The building is situated on the same

    site as the historical Herndon Building which housed the first African

    American radio broadcast station. In 2008, a horrific tornado went right

    through the heart of the site and destroyed the remains of the old

    Herndon building. Presently, a portion of the building remains standing

    and will be used as historical context within the site.

    With the historical Herndon building gone, many spectators view the

    site as very empty and TRANSPARENT. When the neighborhood and

    guests are added to the site, it becomes added upon and becomes

    TRANSLUCENT. When a structure is added, along with spectators and

    members of the neighborhood, it becomes more dense and very

    OPAQUE. When building components are

    added into the concept, it all sums to be a

    dynamic use of steel, glass, and solid walls.

    Steel beams and columns are used to create

    pockets of TRANSPARENT windows. Frosted

    and tinted glass create TRANSLUCENT layers

    within the buildings interior and exterior.

    Brick, concrete, and steel stud walls trap

    creative sounds and minds within by building

    OPAQUE walls.

    First Floor Plan

  • The project will incorporate a musical tradition of the

    area into a new facility for the Atlanta Urban Music

    Cooperative, a non-profit for training youth in music

    performance, recording, sound engineering, and

    broadcasting. The cooperative will obtain funding the

    market-appropriate recording facilities drawing large

    names in urban music to the area for professional

    recording and mixing services.

  • savannah tRain stationProject Statement:The central concept of this train station is a TRANSITIONAL structure from Old Savannah to theNew Savannah or River Landings. The main stations style will consist of the architectural style from the Old Savannah. The transitional piece will be a modern structure that will BRIDGE the gap between Old Savannah and the New Savannah. This transition structure will also transform from an older architecture to a new architecture with a TWIST and bend.

    Diffusing light during the day and

    creating a warmth, as guests are greeted

    from the East during the evening, the

    translucent glass butterfly roofs create

    a gradual climb that is aesthetically

    pleasing and that is functional. This can

    be seen in the rendering above and to

    the right.

  • A good train station is a place where

    patrons and guests are able to safely

    travel to and from their next destinations

    as efficiently as possible. Also, creating

    a train station that is environmentally

    friendly and sustainable will also make a

    good place for people to gather for more

    than just travel.
