Bryan A. Koreis - Portfolio

  1. 1. BRYAN A. KOREIS, ASLA Landscape Architecture | 2010
  2. 2. I would like to extend to you my sincere appreciation for taking the time to look through my design portfolio. I consider hand graphics to have certain, inimitable qualities about them that digital renderings fail to capture. I seem to find myself picking up a pencil and marker more often than not, and for this reason, much of the work on the subsequent pages were produced, for the most part, by hand. These projects were all completed in the final four semesters of my education at Washington State University. While most are of my own individual labor, one slide displays group work in which each team member fulfilled a vital role in the successful completion of the project. This project has been clearly identified. Again, I would like to say “Thank You” for the time you spend browsing my work. If you have questions on any of the projects, I would be more than happy to provide necessary clarification. Please enjoy.
  3. 3. Diatrophe | al Fresco Dining Conception | Pullman, WA Diatrophe , from the Greek meaning “sustenance” or “food”, was a design project that explored ways to provide patrons with a versatile dining environment. Pullman experiences yearly extreme temperatures and heavy snowfall; hence, necessary project goals included an enclosed, outdoor dining pavilion and a semi-enclosed outdoor waiting area located adjacent to the restaurant. Additional open-air seating for up to forty guests was provided to capitalize on eastern Washington’s warm spring and summer seasons.
  4. 4. Display Garden | Washington State University | Pullman, WA The Horticulture and Landscape Architecture Display Garden is a hands-on experience that provides design-build and plant maintenance education to landscape architecture students. Each year, students of junior class standing participate in a two-part, design-build course that teaches sustainable design and construction using recycled materials and drought tolerant vegetation. The above drawings were completed as an initial, individual project. All group work followed in the previous semester.
  5. 5. Display Garden | Washington State University | Pullman, WA Group work on the Horticulture and Landscape Architecture Display Garden. This particular project was large scale, requiring more attention to detail, group communication, and client interaction. Images at left document project construction and completion. Center-top is an early masterplan completed on trash. Team discussion followed, from which the final masterplan, shown in SketchUp 7 (bottom) was completed. Far right shows a 3D model of the Display Garden, looking toward the plaza and the west entrance.
  6. 6. Deschutes River Estuary Restoration | Olympia, WA Program development for the Deschutes River Estuary restoration project in Olympia, WA. A proposed split-basin allows for natural estuarine processes, while retaining the communal significance of Capitol Lake. The final design included a causeway with viewing areas and a series of boardwalks along the western edge of the estuary. Riparian plant material is entirely salt tolerant, and thrives along estuarine tidal flats. Species include Scirpus acutus, Jaumea carnosa, and Distichlis spicata var. stricta.
  7. 7. West Bay Community Park | Olympia, WA Masterplan for a new 11-acre park along the western shore of Budd Inlet, just north of the proposed Deschutes Estuary. Located on a vacant industrial property, this design was the answer to the communal disconnect that exists between West Olympia and downtown. Masterplan designed in AutoCAD, rendered by hand, and superimposed onto an aerial photo of the site using Adobe Photoshop. Far left are images of the existing industrial site.
  8. 8. Graphic Illustrations | Mixed Media These images are various graphic representations of conceptual thought that I developed through the design process. Some are illustrative explorations of specific projects that were meant to aid in the communication of a final design intent, while others are simplistic sketches that explore different methods of graphic demonstration. Completed using one or multiple media types: drafting and colored pencil, AD Chartpak marker, technical pen, and/or Adobe Photoshop.
  9. 9. “Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life is based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.” -Albert Einstein
