  2. 2. Design Philosophy Design brings us together like the sound of music. If you play loud enough and long enough, someone will eventually listen.“My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not totell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.” John Lennon

  5. 5. Design NarrativeThe design concept and site plan was establishedthrough an exploration of biblical verses and readings.“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed,which a man took and planted in his field. Though itis the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows,it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree,so that the birds of the air come and perch in itsbranches.” (Matthew:31:31-32) Like the parable,the design concept and surrounding landscape isrooted in Manhattan, Kansas and will someday growinto a community of worship and knowledge. Thepathways and design features act as the branchesof the mustard seed, extending out and creating awelcoming area for all the people of the earth.Oak Tree: “And Joshua wrote these words in thebook of the law of God, and took a great stone, andset it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuaryof the LORD.” (Joshua 24:26).Oak trees were placed at the edges of theproperty and around the building to symbolizethe establishment of a monument of worship and design development for site and program elementscongregation. sketched by partner Derek Hoetmer mmc view from deck overlooking landscaped recreational area and community space Manhattan Kansas Mennonite Community course: Planting Design Studio media: AutoCAD Civil 3D, Sketch-Up, Adobe Photoshop/ Ilustrator Spring 2011 oak trees act as building mask and provide shade for structure and turf area

  9. 9. Concept StatementThe Kansa Indians and their language influenced theconcept and design for the plaza. The word Neoshoin the Kansa language means, “water that has beenmade muddy” or simply put “water in it.” I find thistranslation very significant because the meaningparallels the formation of the city. The NeoshoRiver sits in the heart of Council Grove and is a veryimportant historical landmark. Council Grove cameto be because this location was a crossing point forsettlers traveling west. The plaza captures the trueessence of the Neosho river and “water in it” with Awater features running throughout the plaza space.

  11. 11. Concept StatementThe Seaton Hall Greenroof project for KansasState University is based on three differentlocations, each having a varying degree of shade,wind, and microclimate. This particular projectis located on the westside of Seaton Hall. Dueto the sites heavily shaded nature, shade tolerantplants were picked in order to sustain the bestpossible life and overall benefits.The concept for the greenroof is based on theprinciple of wind and how it affects the site.Circulation of wind within the site is circulardue to the winds hitting the limestone walls and greenroof location - westside of seaton hallcreating a vortex. The wind patterns can be seenin the photograph to the right. These patternswere then translated into the design, becominga highly aesthetic feature while also maintainingfunctionality through positive drainage and waterstorage via the adjacent cistern. snow accumulation and wind patterns Project Pricing Roofing Price 1 Rl BASE SHEET@ $33.35 $33.35 BASE SHEET FASTERNERS $10.00 7 TUBES NP-1@$ 4.50 $31.50 2 RL DERBIGUM GP @ $61.98 $123.96 2 RL PERMASTIC @ $41.07 $82.14 20FT TERM.

  13. 13. Statement of Intent current infrastructure road networkThe core dilemma of the north bank in Kansas rail lineCity, Missouri is the gap in the urban fabricbetween downtown and the highly populatedsuburbs to the north. The principal strategy is tocreate a hub between the proposed twenty-fourhour city and the northern suburbs, pulling theproposed riverfront development along BerkleyRiverfront Park across the river. landuse diagram residential mixed useSupporting this is a vision of a highly residential commercial/retailmixed use development mirroring the adjacentsouthern riverfront. Accommodating for pedes-trian and bicycle traffic will create better con-nections to both sides of the river and promotea walkable and functional community. Also byutilizing the existing infrastructure of train tracks it missouri river andcould be possible to extend proposed TOD across private propertythe river to provide access for residents north of private property/leveethe river. The new development must be more Missouri Riverdiverse in use and programmed in a manner thatutilizes all of the differing aspects of being close,yet separated from the city. The vision is an ideaof a “one riverfront” identity, as opposed to twoopposite opposing banks. site development north bank Kansas City, Missouri course: Community Planning & Design media: Sketch-Up, Marker, Ink, & Colored Pencil Spring 2010 conceptual vision for the future of the north bank

  15. 15. Project BackgroundThe Stout Pedestrian Plaza stems from a groupanalysis and master plan for the revitalization ofthe Arapahoe Square District in Denver, Colorado.This district has long been under maintainedand the city looks to redevelop the area into avibrant, transit oriented community. Our teamsgoals were to develop a district of mixed usebusiness and residential development while alsoincorporating TOD and a network of open spaceto connect different parts of the city.Concept StatementThe Platte River is formed by the confluence ofthe North and South Platte Rivers. The river istermed a “braided stream,” describing a body ofwater that divides into several channels separatedby beds of sediment, or islands. First discovered process sketches for stout pedestrian plazaby a European, Etienne de Veniard, sieur deBourgmonte in 1714, the river was coined theNebraskier, an Oto word meaning “flat water.”In the lower regions of the Platte, the river isboarded by bluffs. The design of the plaza itselflooks to embody the true essence of the PlatteRiver and signify the movement and fluidity thatit possesses. The Stout Pedestrian Plaza aims tobe a gateway from the South for the ArapahoeSquare District and the proposed pedestriancorridor of 21st street. 21st STREET activating 21st street with pedestrian corridor and TOD stout plaza Denver, Colorado course:Site Planning & Design media: Sketch-Up, AutoCad Civil 3D, Adobe Photoshop Spring 2010 group master plan for the Arapahoe Square District

  17. 17. Project BackgroundThe site is located in Manhattan, Kansasapproximately one mile south of the KansasRiver west of U.S. Highway 177. The site canbe described as having east-facing slopes withrise:run ratio of 15% and greater, covering 63.6%of the site area. This conservation developmentseeks to provide a residential enclave thatcaptures the true essence of the local FlintHills while also creating a visual connection toManhattan and the surrounding areas.Concept StatementThe design concept for Wildwood Estates was site context and locationdeveloped through an exploration of site features, 1080 Contour Map 0 25 50 100 150 200 Meters ¯conditions, and suitability.
