Competition Entry
Hello, I'm Asif Khan, a landscape architecture graduate
from Iowa State University. My journey into the world of
landscape design began after completing my Bachelor of
Architecture from SUST, Bangladesh. I was inspired by
Geoffrey Bawa, Srilankan Architect and decided to pursue
Landscape Architecture. I believe Architecture can also be
a Landscape phenomenon.
During my time at Iowa State University, I delved into the
intricacies of landscape architecture, testing my skills and
exploring the dynamic relationship between nature and
design. This journey culminated in my role as a landscape
designer at HDR Inc. in Denver, where I had the opportu-
nity to apply my knowledge in real-world projects.
What drives me in this field is the belief that architecture
and landscape are intricately connected, with each
influencing the other in profound ways. I see landscape
architecture as a powerful tool for addressing pressing
global challenges, particularly in the face of climate
change.
Beyond design, I find joy in watercolor painting, poetry,
travel, cooking and cricket. These diverse interests inform
my creative approach, allowing me to weave together
elements of beauty, culture, and purpose in my work. I'm
particularly intrigued by the concept of place identity and
how landscape design can shape our perception of
space.
For me, design is more than just creating aesthetically
pleasing spaces; it's about crafting narratives that resonate
with people on a deeper level. Whether I'm incorporating
dramatic elements or drawing inspiration from diverse
cultures, my goal is always to create environments that
evoke emotion and spark imagination.
In a world facing unprecedented environmental chal-
lenges, I'm passionate about leveraging my skills to create
sustainable and resilient landscapes that enhance quality
of life for all. I believe that landscape architecture holds
the key to building a greener, more inclusive future, and
I'm excited to be a part of that journey.
The plan illustrates the
sunken garden, specifically
designed to provide a
serene environment for
patients undergoing dialysis
during their extended
waiting periods. A gravity
retaining wall was utilized
for this critical feature,
requiring close collabora-
tion with civil engineers and
contractors to ensure its
optimal functionality (ref:
section). While the sunken
garden itself was inaccessi-
ble to patients, it included a
pathway designed for
mechanical access.

One of my early assignments was designing the main entry plaza (Level L) of the
hospital. This entailed integrating various constraints like emergency and bus
drop-offs, entrance security, looped driveway, plaza and bike parking, and
diverse grading. The design also included a public plaza with planters and
seating areas, as well as a green roof portion. Functionally solving these
complexities while maintaining a plaza-like ambiance was a challenging journey.
Notably, the emergency Level-E entrance and parking were situated below this
area. Utilizing Corten steel planters with diverse planting, the design created
inviting spaces for people. I was responsible for developing the design, iterations,
3D models, and renderings for this space.
I joined The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) project in 2022, which is the largest
hospital in Ontario. The project was handed over to Project CO. in Novem-
ber 2023. The site presented challenges with two distinct parts: the
hospital located on the southwest side and the garage on the northeast
side.
I was involved in the design process, iterations, grading solutions, collabo-
ration with multiple offices, producing grading solutions, 3D modeling for
space interpretation, technical sections and details.
One of the most captivating
aspects of this project was
the extensive collaboration.
Six offices across the United
States and Canada contribut-
ed to the project's success.
Working alongside architec-
ture, civil departments, and
other contracted partners
provided valuable insights
into the intricate processes
and management strategies
required for large-scale
projects.
The project provided valuable
experiences across various
aspects, including navigating
code compliance complexi-
ties and resolving conflicts
between design concepts
and functional requirements.
These challenges often
sparked innovative and
inspiring solutions. Addition-
ally, I gained insights into
different types of retaining
walls and landscape perfor-
mance, particularly in health-
care facilities. Exploring the
incorporation of green
technologies and strategies
was also a new and enriching
learning opportunity.

The west entrance featured a loop
driveway with parallel parking on the
east side and a code-compliant bike
shelter on the west. A retaining wall,
accommodating an 8ft elevation
difference on the west side, was
incorporated into the design. Planter
borders with seating areas adorned both
sides of the entrance, while bollards
ensured security. Balancing accessibility
from various directions while maintain-
ing exclusivity and smooth traffic flow
required extensive trial and error.
The section shows (R to L) the emergency E1 parking, the pavillion and plaza above, it shows the tower B and the loading dock on the east side.
The sloped green area was conserved and new plantations were introduced strategically.
The contemplation garden featured a captivating labyrinth pathway descending approxi-
mately 12 feet deep, leading to a central pool. This unique design incorporated a
sequence of pathways, planting strips, and layers of rock shingles, creating intricate bend
layers. Additionally, the garden seamlessly connected to a bike path from the west. Ensur-
ing ADA compliance with a gentle slope of 4.88% and illuminated railings with neon strips
posed significant challenges. Maintaining pathway width and ADA grade while designing
non-disruptive exit stairways proved crucial. The section analysis played a key role in
resolving these design complexities.

The CUP (Central Utility Plant) section was a critical component of the project,
housing mechanical units, a generator, and rooftop parking. Section A4
showcased the layout of the CUP, rooftop parking, and adjacent sunken garden
on the west side, featuring a gravity retaining wall for elevation support. Notably,
the retaining wall along the southern perimeter was one of the project's most
costly elements. Collaboration among multidisciplinary teams ensured seamless
integration and optimal functionality within the section, resulting in a harmonious
blend of design and technical excellence.
In response to the city's requirement for controlled flow rates of outgoing water,
additional retention measures were implemented. Alongside existing strategies,
additional walls were utilized to effectively slow down and retain more water. This
iterative process involved the use of Photoshop (PS) over a SketchUp export,
allowing for precise adjustments and optimization of water retention capabilities.
To meet the city's demand for controlled water flow rates, various retention
measures were already in place. However, additional walls were incorporated to
further regulate and retain water. This refinement process involved using Photo-
shop (PS) adjustments over a SketchUp export, ensuring precise optimization of
water management strategies.
The retaining wall for the sunken garden needed to balance cost efficiency with patient
comfort. Designed for dialysis patients, who spend hours in the adjacent room, the
garden also had to accommodate utility constraints, including a tunnel from the CUP
to the hospital. Careful design consideration ensured functionality while maintaining a
2% slope for drainage.

CONTEMPLATION GARDEN - PLAN ENLARGEMENT
The TOH Garage, a distinctive facet of the larger TOH project, underwent its own proposal and bidding process. Amidst my contributions to
various aspects of the project, one particularly intriguing endeavor was the implementation of the Miyawaki planting method for the Garage ramp
area. The ramp, a bold architectural feature leading to the rooftop green space with a playscape, was not only ADA compliant but also sculpted
to resemble a dynamic serpent ascending to the top floor. Beneath the ramp, the sloped ground provided an ideal canvas for the Miyawaki
planting method—a transformative approach to rewilding spaces with native flora, mimicking the biodiversity of a natural forest over a span of 30
years.
In my role, I engaged in design iterations and the development of critical sections for both the garage and ramp. Additionally, I spearheaded the
integration of the Miyawaki planting method, leveraging 3D modeling, post-production, and rendering techniques to bring the concept to life.
Furthermore, I played a pivotal role in designing the surrounding landscape of the garage, including streetside seating, placemaking elements,
bike route optimization, and other amenities aimed at enhancing the user experience.
Throughout the project, we encountered a significant challenge when faced with a sudden budget cut of 30 million dollars for the garage. This
unforeseen obstacle prompted a flurry of design iterations aimed at mitigating the financial impact while maintaining the project's integrity and
vision.
The image G1 shows the part of the garage project
where the Miyawaki Planting method is to be
implemented.
The image G2 shows a Photoshop rendering of the
space. This was part of the development process.
The final rendering was done on Enscape. An
example is shown on the right.

OVERALL AREA MAP NEIGHBORHOOD MAP FLOODWAY MAP 2013 FLOOD IN BULDER CREEK
This map illustrates the site's location in relation to the
main and East campus, with the Flat Iron Mountains to the
west.
The neighborhood map informed design decisions by
analyzing proximity, traffic, services, and routes.
We collaborated with ICON to assess the Floodway Map, focusing on the
High Hazard Line and Conveyance zone. The creek-side location present-
ed a challenge, necessitating a 6ft elevation to meet code requirements.
The Graduate Residence Hall project at the University of Colorado,
Boulder, stands as a testament to the collaborative spirit and innova-
tive design approach fostered by HDR Inc. and WRA (Architecture).
Situated adjacent to the picturesque Boulder Creek on the southern
edge, with Athens Street bordering its northern boundary and facing
the existing Residence Hall 1, this project presented a unique set of
challenges and opportunities.
One of the initial complexities encountered was the requirement to
elevate the site by over 6 feet to meet floodway regulations—a task
seamlessly integrated into the overarching design concept centered
around the notion of porosity. Inspired by the natural flow of water
and people, the design envisioned a landscape that would guide
movement fluidly, as if the site itself possessed a porous nature. This
concept gave rise to a diverse array of landform typologies, each
strategically employed to offer varied experiences and access points
while maintaining cohesion within the overall design.
The collaborative process between HDR Inc., WRA, and the Univer-
sity of Colorado authorities was marked by countless iterations and
stakeholder engagements. Grappling with budget constraints from
inception, meticulous attention was paid to material selection,
construction methods, and resource allocation, ensuring an economi-
cally viable yet aesthetically compelling outcome.
One of the project's most intriguing aspects was the grading process,
which presented an opportunity to sculpt the terrain and create
pockets of interest throughout the site. This phase underscored the
importance of spatial optimization, as well as the intricacies involved
in addressing functional considerations such as waste management.
Throughout the design journey, emphasis was placed on cultivating
meaningful stakeholder relationships, with frequent client consulta-
tions providing valuable insights and shaping the project's evolution.
These interactions not only honed communication skills but also
reinforced the importance of aligning design objectives with client
vision and expectations.
In essence, the Graduate Residence Hall project exemplifies the
intersection of creativity, technical expertise, and pragmatic
problem-solving. It serves as a testament to the power of collabora-
tion in realizing innovative and impactful landscapes that enrich the
built environment while meeting the diverse needs of stakeholders.

SECTION A - AA’
SECTION B - BB’
The design process for Residence Hall 2 at the University of Colo-
rado Boulder began with a collaborative effort involving HDR, WRA,
CU authority, consultants, and user workshops. Both the site and
building designs evolved concurrently, undergoing numerous itera-
tions and changes to prioritize functionality while incorporating all
constraints. One of the initial challenges was the elevation of the
land by 6 feet, which posed difficulties in accessing the site and
building entrances at grade. To address this, access points were
strategically placed at different levels, connected by ramps from
Athens (Paseo) and a ramp from the southeast corner.
A notable feature of the design is the transformation of 19th street
on the east into a bike lane/plaza street with street parking. This
portion of 19th street is envisioned as a future public space, high-
lighting the importance of exposure to this area. The Paseo and
south ramp converge at the grove, a porous paved area adorned
with cherry trees and seating, serving as the central hub among the
three buildings. The slope from the south side up to the grove grad-
ually staggers with bleachers that seamlessly dissolve into the
grade. Additionally, the south side near the creek boasts the
Cottonwood meadow, mirroring the local forest landscape.
Green areas adjacent to the buildings act as buffers and shape the
walkways, featuring multistem plants like amelanchier and similar
trees. Other amenities include a trash zone accessed from Athens
street and a covered bike shelter along the walkway. The circulation
design ensures porosity for people walking and biking through the
site, facilitating seamless movement in and out. Furthermore, the
porous surface of the grove and green spaces within the project
also aids in water drainage and detention.
Residence Hall 2's design prioritized landscape performance,
incorporating porous surfaces, native planting schemes, and water
detention areas to promote biodiversity and ecological resilience.
Detailed analysis and exploration of these features were document-
ed in section drawings, highlighting their role in enhancing the site's
functionality and environmental sustainability. Through innovative
strategies such as porous surfaces and native planting, the design
fosters habitat diversity and resilience while supporting local and
migrant bird routes and pollination. These elements underscore the
project's commitment to environmental stewardship and set a prec-
edent for sustainable design practices within the university campus
and beyond.

This page features performative sections and rendered views obtained from Enscape, offering valuable insights into
the site's spatial connections and landscape performance. Through these sections, we gain a deeper understanding
of the vertical relationships within the site, while also exploring the practical implications for its various components.
These renderings not only inform about the site's design but also highlight its functionality and performance in
enhancing the overall user experience.
Project Parcel 8 - Central Park presents an intriguing venture propelled by the vision of the
UDPLA section as an additional service proposal. Situated adjacent to a Quick Trip gas station
and Breakthru Brewery, the site's unique characteristics posed both challenges and opportuni-
ties for creative development. Advanced physical planning had already been undertaken, yet a
narrow bend of space remained, offering the potential for a park. However, utility constraints,
notably a significant stormwater easement traversing the site, precluded any construction over-
head. Divided into two distinct sections, the larger portion, nestled away from Central Park
Boulevard, provided elevated viewpoints overlooking Sand Creek, located just beyond the
sidewalk to the south. In anticipation of future high-density developments in the surrounding
area, the park was envisaged to alleviate forthcoming pressures and establish a verdant buffer
along its periphery.
The areas set aside for Parcel 8’s park and open spaces are well away, and mostly buffered,
from I-70 and Central Park Blvd. The offer some unique opportunities for open space design
and service to the Central Park community: With its close proximity to Sand Creek, and a much
larger open space to the West, this park will have a strong connection to the surrounding native
landscape and natural prairie habitat.
The Sand Creek regional bike trail forms the park’s southern boundary which will bring in users
from far beyond the immediate Parcel 8 development and offer Parcel 8 residents the opportu-
nity to safely walk and roll to other parts of Central Park and Denver without entering the street
network. With the bike trail and a water quality/ detention basin between it and the creek, the
new park sits well above the creek habitat offering advantageous views for birders and other
nature enthusiasts. Open views to the West offer Denver’s skyline with the Rocky Mountains in
the background.
Complementing the recreational amenities, a dedicated dog park was earmarked for the far left
side of the site, providing a welcoming space for canine companions and their owners alike. A
thoughtfully curated network of primary and secondary pathways, crafted from a blend of
concrete and crusher fines, crisscrossed the park, facilitating seamless navigation and accessi-
bility. Embracing sustainability principles, native plantings predominated throughout, with mulch
beds utilized sparingly in designated planters to enhance biodiversity and ecological resilience.
As the project progressed, an additional street known as the Paseo was integrated into the
design, serving as a pedestrian-only thoroughfare connecting to the park site. Design iterations
for the Paseo evolved in tandem with the project's development, further enriching the overall
user experience and connectivity within the surrounding urban fabric. Through meticulous plan-
ning and creative ingenuity, Project Parcel 8 - Central Park embodies a harmonious blend of
functionality, sustainability, and community enrichment, poised to serve as a vibrant and inviting
green oasis within the bustling urban landscape of Denver.

Restored and restructured Cylos for night stays. The existing workshop on
the left is also modified to have more transparant facade. Green house
for indoor grass produce is also considered.
The Savanna-trail museum shows exhibits of Lakota trive and their
integral relationship with the Bison. Bison herd can be seen in the far
grounds. Artificial water and nature sound is peridoically played to
drown the noise from I-35.
A view of the Bison Pass (Land bridge) from the museum trail.
A conceptual version of the Cut-flower farming gardens. Instead f
typical rectangular shape, the gardens are concieved as curved
borders weaving around paths.
Tee Pee’s can be seen erect in the star gazing camp uphill, looking down
the valley towards the Bison grounds and having the best exposure of the
clear Iowa sky. Great scope for stargazing. The hot air baloons near the
entrance can be seen far away.

Context:
The vision of Market district in Des Moines, Iowa-
emphasizing the market street is to create a sustain-
able, active street-scape that thrives with festivity. To
develop festive transformation, the monotonous
predictable image of grid roads is questioned and
selected parking spaces are reppurposed to overlay
a secondary organic surface called ‘splash’ is
proposed (made of blue pigmented pervious con-
crete) that weaves through blocks and streets turn-
ing unused  relocated parking spaces to social
spaces.
The project addresses the social activity generator
issue, sustainable energy production and water
management issue and develops a walkable and
bike friendly neighborhood.
The market street becomes a merging platform that
is accessed via formal and informal routes and holds
multiple connected activity stages and rooms for
people to socialize in small and large groups.

Context:
Plastic pollution is a global problem. We
all know about it but still, plastic waste
increases with each year. This project
addresses the issue of plastic pollution
and brings people face to face with the
disastrous impacts it is having.
Using the five stages of grief model, the
project manifests into a journey through
five blocks represententng the five stages
and tries to raise awareness provocative-
ly, so that people can question the role
they might play to raise voice.
Violation(Poem Narrative)
Asif Khan
‘What is it?’- I asked, annoyed.
Without even looking away from the screen.
The match I was watching was hanging on a tilt.
The excitement ran through like electric charge.
Hard, it is, to look away from such an urge.
‘What is it?’ I asked in reply, and then,
She spoke.
“From the first breath of air,
The first droplet of water to quench your thirst,
The colors that yours eyes feast up on,
I have cared, indiscriminately. Sustained, pleasured.
Never asked for anything, but gave places and spaces.
Produced food and thrived with lushness
That you like so much.
But I tried my best and now,
I am tired. I am ill.
My own blood streams are filthy, polluted.
My air pipe is jammed and I can’t breathe.
All my other children are suffering, crying- helpless.
And I cannot help them now.
For years and years, I thought,
Surely this is a passing phase.
Surely there will be change and
I will live freely again.
But all my hopes are in a dark place.
I come here now, with a plea.
An account of insult and crime.
Against you. And I want you to see me.
Look me in the eye and acknowledge.
Your actions.
I am your mother. (Nature)
And you, my child, have violated me.”

As people start to go ahead, the pathway starts to get filled with
plastic waste- creating a disturbance whereas pristine landscape
prevails outside.
This block is made of recycled wooden panels used to project
facts and information about plastic waste - a phase for people to
calculate and wonder about the situation.
This block creates a sense of depression and loss by
projecting graphic photographs and statues of dying and
trapped animals due to plastic pollution.
The final Acceptance block shows a scenario of a plastic
filled world where traped statues of children (next generation)
are looking at us for help.

Song for Autumn,
by Mary Oliver
In the deep fall
don’t you imagine the leaves think how
comfortable it will be to touch
the earth instead of the
nothingness of air and the endless
freshets of wind? And don’t you think
the trees themselves, especially those with mossy,
warm caves, begin to think
of the birds that will come — six, a dozen — to
sleep
inside their bodies? And don’t you hear
the goldenrod whispering goodbye,
the everlasting being crowned with the first
tuffets of snow? The pond
vanishes, and the white field over which
the fox runs so quickly brings out
its blue shadows. And the wind pumps its
bellows. And at evening especially,
the piled firewood shifts a little,
longing to be on its way.
ELWOOD HOUSE RESIDENCE
LANDSCAPE DESIGN
Site: Ash Ave, Ames
Year 2, Level 1
Context:
P. Elwood had been the chair of
Landscape Architecture department for
several years and now, his house is being
owned by Hans and Megan. Hans is
currently a Landscape Architecture
faculty at Iowa State and Megan is a
librarian. We were asked to redesign the
landscape of the residence keeping in
view the historical context and objects
within the landscape.
Before starting the project, I asked Hans
and Megan to provide me three poems of
their choice that they feel close to. Taking
the poems as precedents and also consid-
ering the site forces and aspects, I tried to
design the landscape in a sequence of
rooms and stages. The rooms are inspired
from the poems and are adorned with
vegetations that go along with the poem
and also the climatic consideration to the
site. The site clearly showed a cross axis
that existed and so I tried to incorporate
the ases in the design and used poem
plates, pergolas, sitting space near the
existing pool and terminated the axis with
a lamp, commemmorating the historic
japanese lamp that was there before.

RETHINKING RIVER FRONT
AT SOUTH SURMA, SYLHET
The site given was the south bank of the river Surma,
in Sylhet. It was on the outskirts of the main town with
rich activity and vibrancy. We were to propose a
major function for the riverfront development and
develop the project along with other necessary
functions. We proposed for a culture shed –‘Krishti
Chaya’
Sylhet has numerous rich, old heritage involvements
that is needed to be preserved and publicized. The
different traditional practices and goods have no
common place to demonstrate or sharing. Many are
endangered, due to lack of nourishment. A
‘necessity’ for town dwellers for experiencing and
celebrating cultural differences. The culture Shelter –
namely ‘Krishti Chaya’ mainly is a vast open space
for performances done by different cultural
organizations
Krishti chaya
:
A massive shade that will eventually becomea
landmark. Different cultural organizations
will perform here at diferent times. It’s a common
place for performing and sharing.
‘Chitro Mela’:
open painting fair will occur here.
Restaurant:
A seasonal restaurant that will have the local varieties
of seasonal cuisines and also bangla and other food.
Exhibition center:
A permanant exhibition space for exhibiting notable
personals of Sylhet. Their biography, achievements
and info will be exhibited. Another rentable
temporary exhibition space available
Craft Shops
A range of Craft shops that will display local crafts
and products, sarees etc. local men power can be
utilized in this way
Nursery
:
A healthy and resourceful flower Nursery. This will add
a beautiful vibe beside the river. It will help to make
the place an abode of green.
‘Mud Shop’ and Recycle Shops
Boat house The river ‘Surma’ can be used as tourist
water attraction with traditional boats for tourists. It is
also a way to revive the traditional boats and carry
on the tradition.

MONUMENT FOR THE UNKNOWN
MARTYRS, SYLHET.
Year-2, Semester-2
We were to design a monument for 38 martyrs
of Tarapur tea estate, Sylhet who were brutally
killed by the Pakistani army in 1971. The site was
selected near the place where the genocide
took place. A black cube was used, floating on
hidden strings and posts. the surrounding of the
site was green tea garden. The floating cube
was a visual disturbance in the serene green. It
was concoction, an addition, an obstruction. A
mark of that heinous crime. I wanted to make a
route to the spot. So I used tunneled way to the
monument, creating dramatic light ways inside
the tunnel.
Not until the very end of tunnel, can the visitors
see the monument again, and when they do, it
appears massive with an intimidating scale. The
visitors then return through the roof of the tunnel
with a sense of freedom.

My journey into the world of landscape design began after completing my Bachelor of Architecture from SUST, Bangladesh. I was inspired by Geoffrey Bawa, Srilankan Architect and decided to pursue Landscape Architecture. I believe Architecture can also be a Landscape phenomenon. During my time at Iowa State University, I delved into the intricacies of landscape architecture, testing my skills and exploring the dynamic relationship between nature and design. This journey culminated in my role as a landscape designer at HDR Inc. in Denver, where I had the opportu- nity to apply my knowledge in real-world projects. What drives me in this field is the belief that architecture and landscape are intricately connected, with each influencing the other in profound ways. I see landscape architecture as a powerful tool for addressing pressing global challenges, particularly in the face of climate change. Beyond design, I find joy in watercolor painting, poetry, travel, cooking and cricket. These diverse interests inform my creative approach, allowing me to weave together elements of beauty, culture, and purpose in my work. I'm particularly intrigued by the concept of place identity and how landscape design can shape our perception of space. For me, design is more than just creating aesthetically pleasing spaces; it's about crafting narratives that resonate with people on a deeper level. Whether I'm incorporating dramatic elements or drawing inspiration from diverse cultures, my goal is always to create environments that evoke emotion and spark imagination. In a world facing unprecedented environmental chal- lenges, I'm passionate about leveraging my skills to create sustainable and resilient landscapes that enhance quality of life for all. I believe that landscape architecture holds the key to building a greener, more inclusive future, and I'm excited to be a part of that journey.
  • 4. The plan illustrates the sunken garden, specifically designed to provide a serene environment for patients undergoing dialysis during their extended waiting periods. A gravity retaining wall was utilized for this critical feature, requiring close collabora- tion with civil engineers and contractors to ensure its optimal functionality (ref: section). While the sunken garden itself was inaccessi- ble to patients, it included a pathway designed for mechanical access. 83 82 81 79 78 77 76 72 77 76 70 73 74 76 77 73 70 79 75 74 72 7 4 75 7 3 80 70 71 82 77 84 80 8 0 79 80 75 7 5 83 82 79 78 77 78 77 78 82 74 78 72 81 7 5 76 77 73 75 72 74 73 81 74 76 77 83 82 71 7 2 69 78 85 70 69 79 8 1 8 0 7 9 7 8 7 7 75 8 6 74 75 75 77 76 80 80 78 77 76 77 78 76 79 7 9 74 EXH AUS T 4.4X 2.5 EXH AUS T 4.4X 2.5 EXH AUS T 4.4X 2.5 5.0m 5.0m P R IN C E O F W A L E S D R IV E R O A D B PRE STO N STR EET ROAD A ROAD D BIRCH DRIVE MAPLE DRIVE CARLING AVENUE ROAD E R O A D L DS DS DS 12 78 5.01 EXH AUS T 4.4X 2.5 EXH AUS T 4.4X 2.5 EXH AUS T 4.4X 2.5 5.0m 5.0m P R IN C E O F W A L E S D R IV E R O A D B PRE STO N STR EET ROAD A ROAD D BIRCH DRIVE MAPLE DRIVE CARLING AVENUE ROAD E R O A D L DS DS DS 12 78 5.01 OVERALL GRADING PLAN STAGE 3 0 18.75m 37.5m Scale 1: 750 75m PLAN NORTH TRUE NORTH L-2.2.2.201 L IM IT O F W O R K FACILITY LEASE BOUNDARY MAIN ENTRANCE WEST ENTRANCE TOWER A ENTRANCE SOUTH ENTRANCE SERVICE ENTRANCE FACILITY LEASE BOUNDARY FACILITY LEASE BOUNDARY FACILITY LEASE BOUNDARY F A C IL IT Y L E A S E B O U N D A R Y FACILITY LEASE BOUNDARY NOTE: 1.

This entailed integrating various constraints like emergency and bus drop-offs, entrance security, looped driveway, plaza and bike parking, and diverse grading. The design also included a public plaza with planters and seating areas, as well as a green roof portion. Functionally solving these complexities while maintaining a plaza-like ambiance was a challenging journey. Notably, the emergency Level-E entrance and parking were situated below this area. Utilizing Corten steel planters with diverse planting, the design created inviting spaces for people. I was responsible for developing the design, iterations, 3D models, and renderings for this space. I joined The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) project in 2022, which is the largest hospital in Ontario. The project was handed over to Project CO. in Novem- ber 2023. The site presented challenges with two distinct parts: the hospital located on the southwest side and the garage on the northeast side. I was involved in the design process, iterations, grading solutions, collabo- ration with multiple offices, producing grading solutions, 3D modeling for space interpretation, technical sections and details. One of the most captivating aspects of this project was the extensive collaboration. Six offices across the United States and Canada contribut- ed to the project's success. Working alongside architec- ture, civil departments, and other contracted partners provided valuable insights into the intricate processes and management strategies required for large-scale projects. The project provided valuable experiences across various aspects, including navigating code compliance complexi- ties and resolving conflicts between design concepts and functional requirements. These challenges often sparked innovative and inspiring solutions. Addition- ally, I gained insights into different types of retaining walls and landscape perfor- mance, particularly in health- care facilities. Exploring the incorporation of green technologies and strategies was also a new and enriching learning opportunity. Tony Mazzeo Jason-Emery Groen Jeff Fahs Kent Freed Will Prescot Asif Khan Hannah Watson Sakshi Rajput Aaron Wagner The west entrance featured a loop driveway with parallel parking on the east side and a code-compliant bike shelter on the west. A retaining wall, accommodating an 8ft elevation difference on the west side, was incorporated into the design. Planter borders with seating areas adorned both sides of the entrance, while bollards ensured security. Balancing accessibility from various directions while maintain- ing exclusivity and smooth traffic flow required extensive trial and error. The section shows (R to L) the emergency E1 parking, the pavillion and plaza above, it shows the tower B and the loading dock on the east side. The sloped green area was conserved and new plantations were introduced strategically. The contemplation garden featured a captivating labyrinth pathway descending approxi- mately 12 feet deep, leading to a central pool. This unique design incorporated a sequence of pathways, planting strips, and layers of rock shingles, creating intricate bend layers. Additionally, the garden seamlessly connected to a bike path from the west. Ensur- ing ADA compliance with a gentle slope of 4.88% and illuminated railings with neon strips posed significant challenges. Maintaining pathway width and ADA grade while designing non-disruptive exit stairways proved crucial. The section analysis played a key role in resolving these design complexities.

The CUP (Central Utility Plant) section was a critical component of the project, housing mechanical units, a generator, and rooftop parking. Section A4 showcased the layout of the CUP, rooftop parking, and adjacent sunken garden on the west side, featuring a gravity retaining wall for elevation support. Notably, the retaining wall along the southern perimeter was one of the project's most costly elements. Collaboration among multidisciplinary teams ensured seamless integration and optimal functionality within the section, resulting in a harmonious blend of design and technical excellence. In response to the city's requirement for controlled flow rates of outgoing water, additional retention measures were implemented. Alongside existing strategies, additional walls were utilized to effectively slow down and retain more water. This iterative process involved the use of Photoshop (PS) over a SketchUp export, allowing for precise adjustments and optimization of water retention capabilities. To meet the city's demand for controlled water flow rates, various retention measures were already in place. However, additional walls were incorporated to further regulate and retain water. This refinement process involved using Photo- shop (PS) adjustments over a SketchUp export, ensuring precise optimization of water management strategies. The retaining wall for the sunken garden needed to balance cost efficiency with patient comfort. Designed for dialysis patients, who spend hours in the adjacent room, the garden also had to accommodate utility constraints, including a tunnel from the CUP to the hospital. Careful design consideration ensured functionality while maintaining a 2% slope for drainage.

  • 6. The TOH Garage, a distinctive facet of the larger TOH project, underwent its own proposal and bidding process. Amidst my contributions to various aspects of the project, one particularly intriguing endeavor was the implementation of the Miyawaki planting method for the Garage ramp area. The ramp, a bold architectural feature leading to the rooftop green space with a playscape, was not only ADA compliant but also sculpted to resemble a dynamic serpent ascending to the top floor. Beneath the ramp, the sloped ground provided an ideal canvas for the Miyawaki planting method—a transformative approach to rewilding spaces with native flora, mimicking the biodiversity of a natural forest over a span of 30 years. In my role, I engaged in design iterations and the development of critical sections for both the garage and ramp. Additionally, I spearheaded the integration of the Miyawaki planting method, leveraging 3D modeling, post-production, and rendering techniques to bring the concept to life. Furthermore, I played a pivotal role in designing the surrounding landscape of the garage, including streetside seating, placemaking elements, bike route optimization, and other amenities aimed at enhancing the user experience. Throughout the project, we encountered a significant challenge when faced with a sudden budget cut of 30 million dollars for the garage. This unforeseen obstacle prompted a flurry of design iterations aimed at mitigating the financial impact while maintaining the project's integrity and vision. The image G1 shows the part of the garage project where the Miyawaki Planting method is to be implemented. The image G2 shows a Photoshop rendering of the space. This was part of the development process. The final rendering was done on Enscape. An example is shown on the right.

GRADUATE RESIDENCE HALL-2, UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, BOULDER OVERALL AREA MAP NEIGHBORHOOD MAP FLOODWAY MAP 2013 FLOOD IN BULDER CREEK This map illustrates the site's location in relation to the main and East campus, with the Flat Iron Mountains to the west. The neighborhood map informed design decisions by analyzing proximity, traffic, services, and routes. We collaborated with ICON to assess the Floodway Map, focusing on the High Hazard Line and Conveyance zone. The creek-side location present- ed a challenge, necessitating a 6ft elevation to meet code requirements. The Graduate Residence Hall project at the University of Colorado, Boulder, stands as a testament to the collaborative spirit and innova- tive design approach fostered by HDR Inc. and WRA (Architecture). Situated adjacent to the picturesque Boulder Creek on the southern edge, with Athens Street bordering its northern boundary and facing the existing Residence Hall 1, this project presented a unique set of challenges and opportunities. One of the initial complexities encountered was the requirement to elevate the site by over 6 feet to meet floodway regulations—a task seamlessly integrated into the overarching design concept centered around the notion of porosity. Inspired by the natural flow of water and people, the design envisioned a landscape that would guide movement fluidly, as if the site itself possessed a porous nature. This concept gave rise to a diverse array of landform typologies, each strategically employed to offer varied experiences and access points while maintaining cohesion within the overall design. The collaborative process between HDR Inc., WRA, and the Univer- sity of Colorado authorities was marked by countless iterations and stakeholder engagements. Grappling with budget constraints from inception, meticulous attention was paid to material selection, construction methods, and resource allocation, ensuring an economi- cally viable yet aesthetically compelling outcome. One of the project's most intriguing aspects was the grading process, which presented an opportunity to sculpt the terrain and create pockets of interest throughout the site. This phase underscored the importance of spatial optimization, as well as the intricacies involved in addressing functional considerations such as waste management. Throughout the design journey, emphasis was placed on cultivating meaningful stakeholder relationships, with frequent client consulta- tions providing valuable insights and shaping the project's evolution. These interactions not only honed communication skills but also reinforced the importance of aligning design objectives with client vision and expectations. In essence, the Graduate Residence Hall project exemplifies the intersection of creativity, technical expertise, and pragmatic problem-solving. It serves as a testament to the power of collabora- tion in realizing innovative and impactful landscapes that enrich the built environment while meeting the diverse needs of stakeholders.

Both the site and building designs evolved concurrently, undergoing numerous itera- tions and changes to prioritize functionality while incorporating all constraints. One of the initial challenges was the elevation of the land by 6 feet, which posed difficulties in accessing the site and building entrances at grade. To address this, access points were strategically placed at different levels, connected by ramps from Athens (Paseo) and a ramp from the southeast corner. A notable feature of the design is the transformation of 19th street on the east into a bike lane/plaza street with street parking. This portion of 19th street is envisioned as a future public space, high- lighting the importance of exposure to this area. The Paseo and south ramp converge at the grove, a porous paved area adorned with cherry trees and seating, serving as the central hub among the three buildings. The slope from the south side up to the grove grad- ually staggers with bleachers that seamlessly dissolve into the grade. Additionally, the south side near the creek boasts the Cottonwood meadow, mirroring the local forest landscape. Green areas adjacent to the buildings act as buffers and shape the walkways, featuring multistem plants like amelanchier and similar trees. Other amenities include a trash zone accessed from Athens street and a covered bike shelter along the walkway. The circulation design ensures porosity for people walking and biking through the site, facilitating seamless movement in and out. Furthermore, the porous surface of the grove and green spaces within the project also aids in water drainage and detention. Residence Hall 2's design prioritized landscape performance, incorporating porous surfaces, native planting schemes, and water detention areas to promote biodiversity and ecological resilience. Detailed analysis and exploration of these features were document- ed in section drawings, highlighting their role in enhancing the site's functionality and environmental sustainability. Through innovative strategies such as porous surfaces and native planting, the design fosters habitat diversity and resilience while supporting local and migrant bird routes and pollination. These elements underscore the project's commitment to environmental stewardship and set a prec- edent for sustainable design practices within the university campus and beyond.

  • 10. Project Parcel 8 - Central Park presents an intriguing venture propelled by the vision of the UDPLA section as an additional service proposal. Situated adjacent to a Quick Trip gas station and Breakthru Brewery, the site's unique characteristics posed both challenges and opportuni- ties for creative development. Advanced physical planning had already been undertaken, yet a narrow bend of space remained, offering the potential for a park. However, utility constraints, notably a significant stormwater easement traversing the site, precluded any construction over- head. Divided into two distinct sections, the larger portion, nestled away from Central Park Boulevard, provided elevated viewpoints overlooking Sand Creek, located just beyond the sidewalk to the south. In anticipation of future high-density developments in the surrounding area, the park was envisaged to alleviate forthcoming pressures and establish a verdant buffer along its periphery. The areas set aside for Parcel 8’s park and open spaces are well away, and mostly buffered, from I-70 and Central Park Blvd. The offer some unique opportunities for open space design and service to the Central Park community: With its close proximity to Sand Creek, and a much larger open space to the West, this park will have a strong connection to the surrounding native landscape and natural prairie habitat. The Sand Creek regional bike trail forms the park’s southern boundary which will bring in users from far beyond the immediate Parcel 8 development and offer Parcel 8 residents the opportu- nity to safely walk and roll to other parts of Central Park and Denver without entering the street network. With the bike trail and a water quality/ detention basin between it and the creek, the new park sits well above the creek habitat offering advantageous views for birders and other nature enthusiasts. Open views to the West offer Denver’s skyline with the Rocky Mountains in the background. Complementing the recreational amenities, a dedicated dog park was earmarked for the far left side of the site, providing a welcoming space for canine companions and their owners alike. A thoughtfully curated network of primary and secondary pathways, crafted from a blend of concrete and crusher fines, crisscrossed the park, facilitating seamless navigation and accessi- bility. Embracing sustainability principles, native plantings predominated throughout, with mulch beds utilized sparingly in designated planters to enhance biodiversity and ecological resilience. As the project progressed, an additional street known as the Paseo was integrated into the design, serving as a pedestrian-only thoroughfare connecting to the park site. Design iterations for the Paseo evolved in tandem with the project's development, further enriching the overall user experience and connectivity within the surrounding urban fabric. Through meticulous plan- ning and creative ingenuity, Project Parcel 8 - Central Park embodies a harmonious blend of functionality, sustainability, and community enrichment, poised to serve as a vibrant and inviting green oasis within the bustling urban landscape of Denver.

The Savanna-trail museum shows exhibits of Lakota trive and their integral relationship with the Bison. Bison herd can be seen in the far grounds. Artificial water and nature sound is peridoically played to drown the noise from I-35. A view of the Bison Pass (Land bridge) from the museum trail. A conceptual version of the Cut-flower farming gardens. Instead f typical rectangular shape, the gardens are concieved as curved borders weaving around paths. Tee Pee’s can be seen erect in the star gazing camp uphill, looking down the valley towards the Bison grounds and having the best exposure of the clear Iowa sky. Great scope for stargazing.

To develop festive transformation, the monotonous predictable image of grid roads is questioned and selected parking spaces are reppurposed to overlay a secondary organic surface called ‘splash’ is proposed (made of blue pigmented pervious con- crete) that weaves through blocks and streets turn- ing unused relocated parking spaces to social spaces. The project addresses the social activity generator issue, sustainable energy production and water management issue and develops a walkable and bike friendly neighborhood. The market street becomes a merging platform that is accessed via formal and informal routes and holds multiple connected activity stages and rooms for people to socialize in small and large groups.

  • 24. Site: Stuwart Smith Park, Ames, Iowa Year 2, Level 1 Context: Plastic pollution is a global problem. We all know about it but still, plastic waste increases with each year. This project addresses the issue of plastic pollution and brings people face to face with the disastrous impacts it is having. Using the five stages of grief model, the project manifests into a journey through five blocks represententng the five stages and tries to raise awareness provocative- ly, so that people can question the role they might play to raise voice. Violation(Poem Narrative) Asif Khan ‘What is it?’- I asked, annoyed. Without even looking away from the screen. The match I was watching was hanging on a tilt. The excitement ran through like electric charge. Hard, it is, to look away from such an urge. ‘What is it?’ I asked in reply, and then, She spoke. “From the first breath of air, The first droplet of water to quench your thirst, The colors that yours eyes feast up on, I have cared, indiscriminately. Sustained, pleasured. Never asked for anything, but gave places and spaces. Produced food and thrived with lushness That you like so much. But I tried my best and now, I am tired. I am ill. My own blood streams are filthy, polluted. My air pipe is jammed and I can’t breathe. All my other children are suffering, crying- helpless. And I cannot help them now. For years and years, I thought, Surely this is a passing phase. Surely there will be change and I will live freely again. But all my hopes are in a dark place. I come here now, with a plea. An account of insult and crime. Against you. And I want you to see me. Look me in the eye and acknowledge. Your actions. I am your mother. (Nature) And you, my child, have violated me.” EXPERIENTIAL MONUMENT ON PLASTIC POLLUTION Digital art: Ziaur Ovi Ocean Plastic Alarming state of Plastic Pollution

  • 28. Song for Autumn, by Mary Oliver In the deep fall don’t you imagine the leaves think how comfortable it will be to touch the earth instead of the nothingness of air and the endless freshets of wind? And don’t you think the trees themselves, especially those with mossy, warm caves, begin to think of the birds that will come — six, a dozen — to sleep inside their bodies? And don’t you hear the goldenrod whispering goodbye, the everlasting being crowned with the first tuffets of snow? The pond vanishes, and the white field over which the fox runs so quickly brings out its blue shadows. And the wind pumps its bellows. And at evening especially, the piled firewood shifts a little, longing to be on its way. ELWOOD HOUSE RESIDENCE LANDSCAPE DESIGN Site: Ash Ave, Ames Year 2, Level 1 Context: P. Elwood had been the chair of Landscape Architecture department for several years and now, his house is being owned by Hans and Megan. Hans is currently a Landscape Architecture faculty at Iowa State and Megan is a librarian. We were asked to redesign the landscape of the residence keeping in view the historical context and objects within the landscape. Before starting the project, I asked Hans and Megan to provide me three poems of their choice that they feel close to. Taking the poems as precedents and also consid- ering the site forces and aspects, I tried to design the landscape in a sequence of rooms and stages. The rooms are inspired from the poems and are adorned with vegetations that go along with the poem and also the climatic consideration to the site. The site clearly showed a cross axis that existed and so I tried to incorporate the ases in the design and used poem plates, pergolas, sitting space near the existing pool and terminated the axis with a lamp, commemmorating the historic japanese lamp that was there before.

  • 37. MONUMENT FOR THE UNKNOWN MARTYRS, SYLHET. Year-2, Semester-2 We were to design a monument for 38 martyrs of Tarapur tea estate, Sylhet who were brutally killed by the Pakistani army in 1971. The site was selected near the place where the genocide took place. A black cube was used, floating on hidden strings and posts. the surrounding of the site was green tea garden. The floating cube was a visual disturbance in the serene green. It was concoction, an addition, an obstruction. A mark of that heinous crime. I wanted to make a route to the spot. So I used tunneled way to the monument, creating dramatic light ways inside the tunnel. Not until the very end of tunnel, can the visitors see the monument again, and when they do, it appears massive with an intimidating scale. The visitors then return through the roof of the tunnel with a sense of freedom. MONUMENT FOR UNKNOWN MARTYRS, SYLHET
