The objective of this project was to develop the new Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire, Station<br />

44 in the Hill district. The facility was required to house a crew of 30 firefighters as well<br />

as three fire chiefs and three lieutenants. The new station needed to serve as a<br />

gathering point, landmark, and safe haven for the area residents and surrounding<br />

neighborhoods and provide an inclusive, welcoming space of civic and community<br />

pride.<br />

My project underwent many revisions over the course of the semester as I strived to<br />

create a space in the core of the fire house that would embody these elements of<br />

community, breeding social interaction among firefighters, chiefs, lieutenants, and<br />

members of the community visiting the space. This space ended up manifesting in the<br />

form of a multitstory, multipurpose amenity space in the heart of the station. Once this<br />

feature was established the rest of the project soon fell into place with a heavy focus<br />

on site design as well as circulation.

The objective of this project was to create a bathhouse in New York City that would<br />

appeal to residents in the surrounding neighborhood as well attract non-residents. The<br />

site is located on the East River, in the Turtle Bay neighborhood of Manhattan; a<br />

neighborhood which, from my observations on site, could be characterized by the narrow<br />

streets consisting of long stretches of continuous brick facade.<br />

Taking this into consideration, I wanted to symbolically open up this facade to expose a<br />

more natural space, one that I hoped would provide a striking contrast to the<br />

surrounding buildings.

The objective for this project was to create a boathouse from<br />

which visitors could rent and launch boats. The site assigned was<br />

located in Bald Eagle State Park, a park local to State College,<br />

which consists of a large lake surrounded by miles of forests. The<br />

boathouse was to be built on a small strip of land on the edge of<br />

the lake, accompanied by a dock and/or boat launch. As this may<br />

imply, one of the challenges we were faced with when designing<br />

was having to find a way to incorporate the essence of the lake<br />

into our building through the form of our structure.<br />

I looked to approach this challenge in my design by creating a<br />

structural system that would allow me to cantilever large CLT<br />

members on top of the two buildings, in hopes of creating the<br />

illusion that the buildings were hovering above the water's<br />

surface, similar to a Bald Eagle hovering above the surface of a<br />

lake.

The objective of this project was to create a cafe that would bridge the gap between the academic and residential p<br />

College. The site is located between these two parts of town, on College Avenue, a street that runs through the<br />

downtown area. As a result, one of the challenges we were faced with when designing was having both the univers<br />

residential scale in mind, bringing people from both areas together in a cohesive space.<br />

I took on this challenge by creating a cafe made up of two very distinct sections. The side closer to the university re<br />

campus, with the ceiling raised higher and the plan allowing for the free flow of people through the space. The side<br />

residential part of town reflects aspects of the residential neighborhoods, following a more rigid separation of spac<br />

ceilings. I chose to unite these two spaces by creating a staircase/ramp system that would ease the difference in he<br />

while also creating a space for performers and the general gathering of people.

The objective of this project was to create a train station in the city of Pueblo, Colorado that would not<br />

only replace the historic Pueblo Union Depot, damaged beyond repair in the Pueblo Flood of 1921, but<br />

also serve as a hub for the community. I decided that I would keep both of these factors in mind when<br />

creating my proposal and really wanted to find a way to both physically and symbolically connect the<br />

Arkansas River (the catalyst in the Pueblo Flood of 1921) to downtown Pueblo.<br />

I decided that the simplest way to achieve this would be to model my building after a traditional truss<br />

bridge, notorious for helping to expand the rail system in the United States. This form proved to be<br />

beneficial in that it allowed for easy circulation from the street to the second track, which according to<br />

the brief could only be accessed from above or below, via tunnel.<br />

One of the other interesting design choices I made was adding a shallow reflecting pool below the<br />

upper portion of the building and underneath part of the program on the first floor. I made this choice in<br />

hopes of reinforcing the symbolism of the bridge as well as creating a source of passive cooling through<br />

the use of evaporative cooling. I chose to designate the area surrounding this water feature as retail<br />

space in the form of light weight booths that can be occupied seasonally by local vendors.

The first floor my proposal is structured independently of the second floor. The first floor structure consist<br />

of of W 10 by 50 steel columns with W 16 by 26 steel beams.<br />

The second floor is supported by reinforced concrete cores rather than columns. And rather than<br />

spanning the short dimension using steel beams I chose to use 45 by 4 foot 16 in thick hollowcore<br />

planks. These planks rest on top of steel trusses positioned inbetween the concrete cores in the long<br />

direction.<br />

The roof of the second floor is supported by two large steel and or concrete trusses that runs along the<br />

perimeter of the second floor in the long direction.<br />

I also have yet to decide whether or not I want to use the hollowcore planks again for the roof to remove<br />

the need for columns or whether a thinner metal deck would be more appropriate. If I chose metal deck<br />

for the roof this would obviously require me to add columns.<br />

Hollowore Plank<br />

I like the choice of prestressed hollowcore plank to support the second level because it reduces the<br />

need to for steel beams and allows for a more compact section.<br />

The typical size of each plank is 4 by 50 with the exception of a few planks that vary. While this may<br />

seem too big for transport I figure that there may be some way trains can be used to transport these<br />

pieces to the site.<br />

PRECEDENT STUDY<br />

The following are documents from a group precedent study of a sauna in Gothenburg,<br />

Sweden. My contribution to the group consisted of documents that analyzed the<br />

materiality and structure of the buildings within the complex.

CHAIR DESIGN<br />

The objective of this project was to create and produce a chair made of laminated<br />

wood members. The document below shows the joinery and members that were<br />

required for our chair as well as the assembly of each component. Below that are two<br />

of the laminated wooden members we produced as a group.
