  3. 3. The North Carolina Masonry Contractors Association Masonry Wall Design Competition wasbrought to Appalachian State for the first time in 2011. My group, consisting of two constructionmanagement majors and myself, was presented with the challenge to design a unique masonrywall solution for a masonry showroom. We were allotted a 40-foot by 10-foot footprint on which to design our wall system. This included the front façade and 10 feet worth of the interior. My group’s wall design won second place in ASU’s first annual NCMCA wall design competition. Concept: Shift The concept for this masonry wall design revolves around and is consumed by shifts. There are several “shifts” that take place conceptually and physically throughout the façade. The first and most obvious shift is seen in the materials that comprise the front façade of the building.The concrete masonry units (CMUs) are shifted and rotated in pattern as well as in material with SketchUp Concept Model Wall Section Model the introduction of the glass blocks. The glass allows for light to pass through and into the building’s interior. The opposing curves of the walls between the first and second floors also introduce another form of a shift. The use of the traditional CMU with a distinctive technique and design provides an innovative process for a utilitarian material, as well as creating an aesthetically appealing visual experience. The recessed glass entrance provides another form of shifting from the exterior to the interior, along with passing under the extending curve of the second floor. The depressed entrancepresents the illusion that one is walking into a wall. The extending curved overhang creates the effect of a deeper entrance but also contains a glass floor so that a view to more of the structure is available. Custom CMUs are needed to enable the walls to be self supporting. These CMUs have one cavity in the center for structure as opposed to the standard type that has two cavities. The façade can be experienced on both the interior and the exterior face. Whether inside or out, the movement created by the curving walls and alternating blocks offer a variety of perspectives unique to the viewer.

  5. 5. The Boone 2030 Plan is an attempt to revamp downtown Boone. The land use plan “serves as the guiding vision and policy basis for determining the appropriateness of any development or redevelopment that is proposed for Boone. This is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan Update’s recommendation of a ‘more comprehensive, long range planning process.’ The goal of the land use master plan is to provide a general pattern forthe location, distribution and character of the future land uses within Boone’s growth area. As a policy guide, the land use master plan is not a regulatory document but rather a reflection of the community’s vision of its future self.” This bank responds to the plan by introducing a building of its own unique character. Concept: Offset Every feature in this building is offset from another feature: The shell dictates the interior organization. Starting with the curved staircase that wraps the building along the frontcurtain wall, this bank is organized in a series of curved and straight lines to optimize natural sunlight and to be an open loop for circulation.

  7. 7. The scope of this project included designing a home on Appalachian State’s campus for a potential sustainable design professor-in-residence. The dwelling may only occupy a 500 square foot footprint and is to include a studio for the professor to use as a work and teaching space. Concept: Tree FortTree houses, or tree forts, are buildings constructed among the branches, around or next to the trunk of one or more mature trees, and are raised above the ground. Tree houses can be used for recreation, work space, habitation or as temporary retreats.

  18. 18. This assignment required an upfit of an office space for an advertising agency that specializes in marketing for the gaming industry, like PlayStation, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, LucasArts Entertainment, Activision, Maxis Inc., and so forth. The company is composed of primarily young (age 25-40) men and women who are energetic, driven, creative types accustomed to thinking outside of the box. Concept: Grid The idea of the box is redefined as Piet Mondrian’s art takes on a new dimension in this gaming advertising agency. All aspects of the design utilize Mondrian’s grid-like aesthetic, from the surface finishes to the assemblies, using black, grey, and white motifs punctuated with bold and vibrant colors common in the gaming world. The building is organized into Furnitureefficient work zones, including three team spaces, a production space, and multiple private offices, all relying on rectilinear and cubic forms to organize the spaces.

  20. 20. This project involved the conversion of a house located in Istanbul, Turkey, into a traditional Turkish restaurant. Concept: Bir Tutam: airy; wispyThis restaurant is based in the ideals of traditional Turkish design. The features of the spacemimic the form of the typical arabesque and damask patterns of Turkey. The wispy profiles inspired the shape of the furniture, the types of finishes used, and the general space planning. Damask wall coverings and light-colored paints are applied to almost all of the walls while reflective materials cover the horizontal surfaces, mirroring the abundance of natural light across the restaurant. Overall, the space creates a light and airy feeling for patrons to enjoy while dining.
