  • 5. THA Architecture Projects 1 Tioga Library Building University of Washington Tacoma, WA Project Description As job captain for the University of Washington’s Tioga Library Building Project, I was instrumental in complet- ing a refined yet flexible design which allowed for future growth of the University of Washington Tacoma campus. Throughout the development of this project I participated in dialogue between consultants, contractors and the University of Washington. Although I was instrumental in coordinating the design of the interior spaces, my primary role was to lead the effort on detailing the exterior of the building. The design of building sought to be a modern and light-filled, while responding to its historical context. For instance, the envelope is finished with an assorted dark red-brown terra cotta cladding and board formed con- crete - incorporating the historic nature of the surround- ing buildings. Another fundamental component of this building was a skyway allowing access from the existing library over the corridor to the new library building. The Ken Avery building is to be constructed in 2011. Design Portfolio

  • 7. Project Description As the primary person developing and writing the Seattle Academy Master Plan, I worked with a team of architects to investigate the existing infrastructure at Seattle Acad- emy of Arts and Sciences. Together we created an effec- tive development plan for the future of this unique and exciting urban school. One of our primary goals was to create a master plan that allowed for the future develop-THA Architecture 2 ment of the school. This included resolving issues related Projects to limitations of available space as well as the diversity of faculty and student needs. As part of the process, many meetings were held with school staff to integrate knowledge regarding the school’s values and ambitions. The final master plan included several different phased development plans with corresponding cost estimates. Seattle In addition to writing the master plan, I was involved in Academy all aspects of the project. I reviewed existing conditions, Master developed base plans, and created a Revit model of the Facilities main school block. I also played a key role in program and Plan master planning development meetings with school staff Seattle, WA and consultants. Ken Avery Design Portfolio

  • 11. THA Architecture Projects 3 Westminster Presbyterian Proposed Garden Courtyard Garden Room Render by Richard Hoyen Church Master Plan & Phase 1 Project Project Description Portland, OR As the primary developer of the Westminster Presby- terian Church Master Plan, I was both fascinated and challenged by the multifaceted design questions of this project. The church complex had been developed in many different stages over the past 120 years, leaving fourteen different floors and many way finding and organizational challenges. One of the primary goals of this project included facilitating universal access throughout the building, along with providing adequate and accessible restrooms. As the primary person working on this master plan I was involved in all aspects of the project. Through my partici- pation in user group meetings and site investigations, I was able to document the complexities of the existing conditions. I established base plans and communicated with consultants and other team members to develop different design options. Because of the success of the master plan, THA Architecture was chosen to move forward with the phase one project of the master plan.

Rowell Brokaw Architects 5 Projects The Vistas Assisted Living Community Redding, CA Project Description On the Vistas Assisted Living Center project I was responsible for design and documentation through the design development and construction documents phases. As part of a team, I designed many of the common spaces within the building. Through the use of Sketchup and Vectorworks I helped to clarify the design intent of these common spaces. In addition, I drafted exterior details for the building.Ken AveryDesign Portfolio

What has the library been, what is it, and what may it become. In the de- sign of this library I look at the enigmatic nature of the written word. The library of the past contained the written word but is containment the purpose to which the library is today? Is there more to a library when all of the text of that building could probably fit on a laptop computer? In the form of this library I seek to involve an interpretative space because the reading of literature is an interpretative act.Ken AveryDesign Portfolio
