Master Planning Project Paradise Valley, Montana


In Community Design Center, I was part of a group of six that created a Master Plan for a Methodist Church Camp near Pine Creek, Montana. The project encompassed analysis of existing structures, master planning of the site, and design of new structures for the site. We created two books for Luccock Park, one detailing existing conditions, and one for the Master Plan. Shown are examples of pieces which I made for the master plan and design.

Sculpture Gallery & Working Studio


New Orleans, LA.
Objective: A gallery that will lead to an opportunity to look in to the workshop/studio where the art in the gallery is made. To realize this, I created a ramp as the gallery, facing the main street, with the studio oriented towards the community. The gallery wraps up and around, looking in the studio, and concluding at a raised cafe. The ofces t in underneath the cafe, and the entire building comes together in a very simple scheme, creating a dynamic interior space.

Design Process
Started with the studio addressing the community, the gallery underneath, and ofces on the second level, with a courtyard in between the studio and gallery and a private courtyard on the second oor.

Stretched the gallery out to create the private courtyard in between gallery levels. The ofces get tied in to the gallery via ramp and gallery leads to the overlook of the studio via bridge. However, this creates awkward circulation and entry to ofce space.

The gallery becomes based off an angled plane ramped in both directions from the entry, and addressed circulation issues. The gallery looks directly in to the studio now, with the courtyard in the middle. However ofces, cafe and other areas are difcult to t in, and create their own circulation and access problems. Scheme is simplied to ramp that leads up from the entrance, to cafe on upper level. Courtyard is pushed to the side, and made semi-private, with access to the ofces. A small inaccessable courtyard is made between the gallery levels as a surprise to the viewer and a tie to the outside. 08

In choosing a dialectical pairing, I felt that the aquatic center would have a strong local presence, with people from the community going there on a daily basis to workout, train and swim, where the hostel would be a place for people who come to Bozeman to stay. A hostel is a strong community within itself, of like-minded people exploring a new place. I thought that having a strong local community join with a strong temporary community would help people in the hostel form a connection with the town. The aquatic center facilities would be open to visitors at the hostel, so they would be able to enjoy the pool while they were in Bozeman.

The Aquatic Center is comprised of only two different truss shapes, alternated and rotated to create the building. While complex looking, these trusses, along with SIPs and Cor-ten steel were utilized for simple on-site construction. The areas between structural bands provide for a unique, natural lighting solution, creating an unmatched swimming experience.

The Exit Gallery

The Exit Gallery for Montana State was a hypothetical project with another student, where we were given specic dimentions to create an on-campus art gallery. Construction documents, code compliency, specing materials, and energy analysis were major components for the project.
