01 PROJECT ARCH 1511 2 3 2 0 1 1 Premise: Project 1 mapped a particu- lar path while analyzing a sequence of spaces. Students were given the option of researching Clemson’s fluid campus sites Barcelona, Genova, or Charleston, SC. Within the constraints of 18 inches high by however inches long, each student was required to include a one mile path chosen from Google Earth. In addition to this tool, plans, sections, and elevation drawings revealed a thought process. Also, the study of perspective was highly encouraged. I analyzed the historic Charleston fabric while taking a closer look at one’s journey from public to private space. M •• 1 king street
01 Synthesis: Although journey from public space to private indicates the idea of narrowing down, it also reveals some of a city’s best kept secrets. Charleston has countless places where one can encounter beautiful architec- ture, synonymous tranquility, thresholds full of character. Taking a closer look at these thresholds, I began to comprehend how space is manipulated through nodes, paths, and edges. Are they planned, historically spontaneous, or simply randomized? What materials articulate each threshold? How do these spaces vary from location along the sequence, and interact with the surround- ung architecture?

However, the consquences of a larger population produce waste. In order to better the tailgating experience, the design team at Studio South decided to investi- gate tailgating on a macro level, as well as micro- researching sustainable design. Further, we were able to develop a concept into a building project. We 8 refer to this as 8 itrailgate.8 8 8
02 PROJECT Synthesis: After visiting Maslow’s hierarchy of need early in the research phase, our design team at Studio South analyzed all the key components of a tailgating experience.The Itrailgating Unit becomes a mobile kitchen, com- plete with the capacity to store 8 collapsing chairs, 2 large coolers, 2 10x10 foot tents, an ethanol grill, and storage for recycling. Simple in form, the Itrailgating unit, defaults to the user, becoming a beautiful way to better the Clemson tailgating expe- rience.

The home was intended for a elderly couple- a talented oil painter and his wife, a writer. Likewise, the program included two creative studios and a large living space for entertaining. The building was to address, in many ways the historical context of Charleston, while bring modernity through new construction.
