  4. 4. Tadao Ando’s Church on the WaterFirst – Year Studio Diagramming is an essential skill to have to analyze important design elements of a project. In Tadao Ando’s Church on the Water, Ando made it evident that the cross was a significant design element for the Church. he created images and views of the cross throughout the space. Another meaningful aspect of Ando’s design is how he integrated the building with the land, as if it was emerging from the earth. Also, Ando deliberately designed the space to guide guests through the Church in order for them to experience and appreciate all of it’s unique features. Medium: Pencil on Vellum 4
  5. 5. A Weekend Retreat Lake HouseFirst – Year Studio In order to design the Weekend Retreat Lake House, solar orientation, natural ventilation, topography, exterior relationships, lake front views, and interior space planning were studied. The project called for a modest single bedroom retreat with room to host two to three guests. The first floor is divided into four quadrants: entry, living room, dining room and kitchen. A spiral staircase leads up to the second floor loft which is accompanied by a personal shower/toilet room and laundry facilities. Shown to the right are a one – point perspective of the dining area with a lake view and the first floor plan with furniture arrangements. Medium: Rapidograph pen on Mylar. 5

Rick Larson’s New York LoftThird – Year Studio Winner: Student Gold at IIDA’s Mid America Design Awards April 2010 The New York Loft was designed for businessman Rick Larson and was inspired by the Art Deco movement and works by A A Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

  9. 9. Pediatrics OfficeThird – Year Studio The design of the Pediatrics Office was inspired by nature. My goal of the design was to create a therapeutic, relaxing, and uplifting environment. This was achieved by incorporating sky-like light boxes in the waiting area ceiling, by painting flowing ribbons of color on the walls, and the use of greens and earth tones. Reception Desk Modeled in Revit 2010 As a pediatrics office, the intent was to design a space which comforted small children without intimidating them and without excluding the wants and needs of older children and teens. The program called for a reception area, waiting area, nurse’s station, triage, two toilet rooms – one ADA accessible, two consulting offices , three exam rooms, and an employee break room. Medium: Pen and Marker on vellum. Modeling in Waiting Area rendered with pen, marker Revit 2010. 9 and colored pencil on marker paper.

  11. 11. Progressions Hotel & RestaurantAnd the 4th Dimension NightclubThird – Year Studio Progressions Hotel & Restaurant and the 4th Dimension Nightclub was a group project designed around the concept of time and the ability to capture space in time. Also, we wanted to merge the historic 20’s -30’s of Manhattan, KS with the present and future of Manhattan, KS. Some of the innovative features are a two – story atrium space with access to day lighting, pixilated historic photos, copper and silver colored metal ceiling tiles, Lumiblade’s OLED “You Fade to Light” installation in the nightclub, and reclaimed wood doors for Hotel bedrooms. Design revisions and CD’s were created for this project. Medium: Pen and Marker on Vellum. Modeled in Revit 2010. 11
