Located in the southeast corner of Woods Park in Lincoln, Nebraska, this public bathhouse is experienced as a procession through hot, then warm then cold pools. A formal exploration into repetition and alignment was translated into a series of continuous linear elements that run from east to west, regulating the interior spaces and framing views to the park landscape beyond.
This project explores ways to evoke sacredness without religious affiliation. It is a sacred space for mourners and visitors who seek self-contemplation, a place to gather and a place to remember those who have passed, through strategies of space, sensation and natural phenomena. The design is a non-denominational space for visitors of diverse religious affiliations. Three main programs drive the form and division of the buildings with connecting points between each one.
Seed Lottery is an Atlas F Missile Silo renovation project located in Wilbur, NE. This project aims to tell an entire story through one form of representation, the section. The section becomes extremely important when renovating an abandoned Atlas F Missile Silo, because most of the program will be underground. The silo is reimagined through a fantastical narrative and a hybridized drawing technique.
Architectural design creating effective and appropriate relationships with manmade/natural environments. Selection/critique of site; the analysis and documentation of contextual conditions; and the incorporation of structure, material, and their expressions into design.
Located on the threshold between The University of Nebraska – Lincoln and Downtown Lincoln, St. Joseph’s Catholic Church looks to serve not only the campus population but that of the city as well. The church would serve these communities by facilitating an understanding of human life and death through a juxtaposed relationship between traditional chapel programming and an elevated columbarium.
Waterfront revitalization projects have become a cliché of post-industrial re-urbanization as cities around the world transform formerly industrialized waterfronts into public parks, promenades, commercial and residential developments, and other people-friendly environments. Areas that were once the ugly backsides of cities have become aestheticized public edges. Surrounding SF investigated this phenomenon and proposed alternative responses using the Port of San Francisco as a case study.
