Becoming an architect has been a dreamSTATEMENT OF INTENT of mine since I was in the fifth grade and was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. It is something that I have never given up pursuing, although the meaning of architecture, to me, has certainly evolved since that time. My design sense is driven by the ideas of culture, community and connections. These connections, both physical and abstract, that a single gesture or structure is capable of making, have been evident throughout my design projects. Architecture can bridge gaps both within and between communities. Architecture is an art that is greatly influenced by the culture while also further influencing life around it. 5
SPROUT SPRING 2011 CLEMSON UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR YUJI KISHIMOTO SITE: DOWNTOWNNEW GREENVILLE COMMUNITY GREENVILLE, SC CONNECT _ to downtown The purpose of this project was to take a vacant site in the North End of downtown Greenville and give it a new life to better connect a newly built elementary school to the Main Street area and Falls Park. Because of the lack of affordable housing in downtown Greenville, this seemed to be an appropriate solution for the site. A new neighborhood of affordable housing is placed alongside the Reedy River along with educational facilities which work together to promote a sustainable lifestyle. The layout of the community challenges the car but is a very bike and pedestrian friendly area. It is an easy walk from this new community to nearby schools, the community center, and downtown businesses. Community garden plots also work to encourage sustainable living. 9
An area of community garden plots is located along the river. Parking is all enclosed in grassy mounds that act as both a visual and noise buffer to the busy Academy Street.High density areas are concentrated at thefront corner of the site to allow for a moreneighborhood type feel along the river. 11

LEADING LANDMARKS FALL 2010 CLEMSON UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR YUJI KISHIMOTO GATEWAY TO GREENVILLE SITE: GREENVILLE, SC CONNECT _ to downtown This project sits on a site that has been vacant for several years. It was previously home to the Greenville Memorial Auditorium which was torn down to make room for the neighboring Bi-Lo Center. The site sits at a location that welcomes many visitors to the city of Greenville. The idea behind this design is to create a strong visual image for the city of Greenville with reflective buildings and a community center shaped like a drop of water. The project will also create a link to downtown by funneling visitors and residents alike to the downtown area. Inspiration came from the ideas of water, music, and mountains that are so present in Greenville. The icon of the site, the water droplet shaped community center, acts as a large transparent living room for the community, a type of space that Greenville does not currently have. It can be used for a variety of different types of events. 17
SCULPTURE This sculpture creates a memorable entrance into the city of Greenville. The form was inspired by combining the ideas of water, music, and the mountains that seem to best represent Greenville.
The forms of the buildings on the site were driven by the lines created by the intersection of several major landmarks of Greenville. This created a path leading visitors to each one of these important landmarks and toward the downtown area.

LIVING WALL SPRING 2010 CLEMSON UNIVERSITY STUDY ABROAD _ GENOA, ITALY PROFESSOR BERNHARD SILLHISTORIC SITE REVITALIZATION COLLABORATORS: L. YARBOROUGH S. PRUITT CONNECT _ old & new N. NEWSOM SITE: HISTORIC CENTER GENOA, ITALY The site of this project is located in the historic center of Genoa, Italy, therefore, the context of the site was of extreme importance in the design process. The solution implements an inhabitable wall. From the exterior, this wall would look like a thick, heavy wall, similar to those of the surrounding buildings that have extremely heavy and solid materials. But, from the interior, the wall would be a completely inhabitable space, making for a unique living environment. On the exterior, from the left to right of the front elevation, the parti of the building goes from a heavy wall, drawing on the heaviness of the surrounding buildings, to a very light transparent structure symbolizing the modernity of this new space. 27
COMMUNITY The chosen connection of this modern structure to the historic site was materiality. The neighboring piazza is known for its black and white marble stripes, which is something that was carried into the PEDESTRIANS design of this new structure in a way that is not literal, but still forms a link to the history of the area. Rather than accomplishing this striping affect through the literal colors of black and white materials, this is done by unique material use. The first portion of the stripe is made of a light colored material while the other stripe is treated with a gray glazing. During the day, this glazing will appear to be dark, giving the affect of a dark and a light stripe. At night, the roles of these materials reverse as the interior spaces are illuminated, making the glazed part of the wall light.

LIFESTYLE OPTIONS With the uniquely shaped living spaces and the inhabitable wall, there are a variety of possible ways that the living space can be arranged based on the lifestyle of the individual inhabiting the space. L1 L2 L3 31
LIF E S T Y LE The living space is fairly small, as is typical in Italy, so each floor features a community space overlooking the smaller piazzetta to the rear of the site. This was done also to give new life to this piazzetta that currently is rarely used.

REJUVENATE FALL 2009 CLEMSON UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR LYNN CRAIG COLLABORATORS: L. YARBOROUGH RECYCLE THIS SITE A. PARDUE CONNECT _ by walkability J. BABCOCK SITE: RIVER ARTS DISTRICT, ASHEVILLE, NC Sustainability, as a health and ecological concern, is a growing trend in our society today. The intention of this new community, in the River Arts District of Asheville, North Carolina, is to promote a healthy lifestyle for all residents through a program of buildings and open spaces specific to health activities and educating individuals on healthy practices. Sustainability may typically be seen as an attempt to conserve energy, but it also encompasses a change in the overall lifestyle of a community. The goal of this project was to promote sustainability, through the reduction of energy use, but also through the physical and social aspects. This was done through transforming a site with a previous life as an industrial area which created many challenges. 37

The design considers social sustainability in terms of containing all of the essential commodities needed for a successful community, including groceries, restaurants, and pharmacies all located on site, within walking distance of the residential districts. The community promotes environmental sustainability through the growth of organic food on site. The victory garden on the site would allow residents to rent a lot on which they could grow their own food. A farmer’s market would also be located within the community to allow for those individuals who do not choose to plant their own food to purchase local goods.SOUTH SECTION CUT

BIKE NODE FALL 2009 CLEMSON UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR LYNN CRAIG SITE: DOWNTOWN CLEMSON BIKE HUB CLEMSON , SC CONNECT _ by bikability The purpose of this addition to the Clemson downtown community is to promote biking to and from Clemson’s campus as well as between classes. The project features two distinct programmatic issues, a bike depot that will act as the hub of a new bike share program and also housing units. These two issues had to be addressed in very different ways while creating a cohesive building that joined both aspects of the program. 47
The bicycle aspect of the site is the most prominent as it is the portion of the space that will be used by the entire community. The front of the bike depot is open to the street so that those walking by take notice of what is going on inside and gain interest in biking. Looking inside this space, one can see the action of revolving bicycle racks with individuals going in and out to retrieve bikes. The process of bike return andLATURAL BUILDING SECTION 1/4” = 1’ - 0” bike cleaning can also be seen from the exterior. Along the sidewalk, there is an area carved out of the front of the building for use as a public meeting space for those coming to use the bike share program. The glass entrance tower, featuring the bike sculpture atrium and lobby space, acts as an icon that can be seen from College Avenue, the main street running through downtown Clemson. This works to attract people to the site as an icon of what goes on inside. 51
The living portion of the space is geared to individuals in the community who have an interest in reducing the impact of cars in thearea by making it a more bike friendly community. There are a total of 8 housing units. The four on the plaza levelare flats while the four upper units are multi-leveled. The living arrangement allows for a great deal of privacy with individualgarden spaces and private entrances to each unit. Even with this privacy that is offered, there is still a feeling ofcommunity. The housing above steps back to create a lighter feeling building from the street as well as to allow for each individualto have their own private garden. Natural light is also an important aspect in the living spaces. 53
NUCLEUS SPRING 2009 CLEMSON UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR DAVE LEE SITE: DOWNTOWNANDERSON TRAIN STATION ANDERSON, SC CONNECT _ by rails This project involved the revitalization of the train rails through Anderson, South Carolina. A former train station is present across the street from the site of this new station. The study of the history of this existing station and the tracks that run through the site was essential in the design of the new station. The task to create a new commuter train station involved forming a space that is inviting to the people of Anderson by being convenient, easy to navigate and interesting. This new structure features an organic form that seems to be growing from the site. Circulation through the station is the main emphasis of the design. The central, double height lobby and the roof garden create unique spaces for a train station. 57

FOLD FALL 2008 CLEMSON UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR JORI ERDMAN SITE: LEE HALLLEE HALL BRIDGE CLEMSON, SCCONNECT _ bridge the gap The addition of this space to Lee Hall is capable of not only bridging the gap between two studios, but also of fulfilling some of the many needs of the students in terms of additional areas that are needed within the studios. In order to get the most out of the additon, the best solution is to make the space as versatile and multifunctional as possible. To accomplish this goal, the design includes a beam that performs the functions of seating and display. It also has a screen that fulfills the need of sun shading and provides additional display space. Careful attention to materiality, joints, and form are necessary. Inspiration for the structure came from the word “fold.” The screen features a unique fold that gives the structure its identity. The connection of the beam to the floor also creates a fold as they are constructed of the same material placed together in a fold like context. 63
The beam that spans along the entire length of the bridge serves several purposes. Thelower area serves as seating outside of the studio for lounging or studying, or even sleeping.The raised areas serve as display space for models.
BBRIDGED G E The back wall is made of translucent glass as to allow in enough light so that the bridge can be lit by natural light all throughout the day, only turning to artificial light when the space is utilized at night. The cables spanning across this side also provide more space to hang work. RI A screening device, on the opposite side, blocks a large part of the bright sunlight during the day to allow for a more peaceful and relaxing space. The screen also works to provide a versatile area as it also features an area to display work. The space is actually large enough to be used for a small group review.
