    various typologies

    My professional work ranges from concept visualization to the production of final construction documents. I work on a wide variety of project typologies, including institutional & commercial buildings and 200+ unit multi-use housing developments.

    Commercial building: St. Louis, MO

    Professional work

  • Working primarily in the Housing Studio, I design and detail multi-use developments of varying sizes that adhere to U.S. HUD, LEED, and EGC guidelines and often support a mixed-income demographic.

    Semester X (thesis)

    East Africa

    urbanism & ekistics

    This design project is the product of my

    research thesis, Autonomy in the Future City.

    EAST AFRICA 2080How does a burgeoning population expand without destroying its surroundings? The Spine attempts to mediate growth and social/environmental stewardship.

  • The city as we know it is a destroyer of landscapes, resources & communitiesbut it does not need to be.

    East Africa in 2080 is now home to 2 billion people. How can we ensure all these people will be able to live equitably?

  • The Spine in an existing urban area

    The Spinal city topology is raised to minimize spatial impact but maximum distributive effect.

    Longitudinal section through urban zone

    Technical section

  • The Spine is a conduit for the reception and distribution of resources, production, development, and people. A filigree urbanism grows from the Spine, responding to the morphogenic affiliation of a strong linearity, the amenities provided, and the connections offered.

  • There exists in East Africa an opportunity to propose a new urbanism that embraces the commons, the environment, and social equity in a new urban ecology.

    Semester IX

    Suzhou, CN

    urban ecology

    Suzhous centuries-old canals are masterpieces of pre-industrial equitable infrastructure, forming a critical component of the Lake Tai hydroregionnow in peril due to increasing urbanization.

    The vertical canal offers the possibility of a new, recuperative hydrourbanism.

    Community functions are lofted to both allow the street level be a site of canal cleanup and water remediation, as well as to allow for the use of gravity in filtration, water capturing, and storage.

    Semester VIII

    Springfield, MO

    campus design

    Drury University has a well-known theater program, but no theater building. In designing a suitable theater, practice space, shop, and classrooms, I began to interrogate the notion of performative spaces.

  • The boundary between stage & audience dissolves

  • The Proscenium arch is a delimiter between actors & audience. The extension of the proscenium to encompass the entire theatre and move into the campus reconsiders the containment of the stage.

    Semester VI

    Carl Junction, MO

    various typologies

    Carl Junction is a town in southwest Missouri marked by deep divisions.

    We proposed a system of connective tissues, based off of research & co-development with residents of the town and local government.

    Phase 2. Trail system expands and development of auxiliary infrastructure increases. Trailheads at strategic points are developed into spaces to contain local commercial endeavors.

    Phase 3. The creation of neighborhood trails completes a comprehensive trail system. More specialized park and natural elements are put in place and allowed to develop.

    Phase 1. Plotting new parks, repositioning the downtown area as a foot traffic hub, creating regional feeder trails connecting along rail lines to nearby communities.

  • We proposed economic programs supported by an underpinning green networktrails, nature centers, parks, recycling centers, and other attractionsto boost economic development, creating an eco-eco approach to growth.

    The full report we delivered to the Carl Junction Visioning Committee is available online here.

    Phase 4. The trail system is integrated into regional rail systems, making it possible to move throughout the town without use of a car. Natural systems and parks now work in tandem to produce new ecologies, and developmental guidelines, coupled with natural barriers, ensure new development will not be at the expense of natural systems.

  • Memorial Park plan

    Variance in the species, densities, and organizational schemes of plantings, coupled with a path and datum wall network, create an evocative, rolling experience.

    Entrance to park from E Pennel St.

  • The memorial is the park. Instead of concentrating the memorial to a single point, the functions of the memorial are distributed into the park. Function & remembrance become one and the same.
