Inventory and Analysis
Regent, North Dakota
Topography and Elevation
While doing Inventory and Analysis there are many aspects of the site that give ideas about a sites usability. When looking at the topography and the elevation of a site there are some elements that also show things like Regent’s Inventory and Analysis shows of the topography and the elevation: •The Regent area has many unique landforms and contours spread all over creating a wonderful and unique opportunity for new development. •This region has many different levels of elevation creating three main watersheds, allowing for a spring, creek, river and lake to all exist in a relatively small vicinity. •With most of the area consisting of gentle rolling hills there are two high buttes to the south where there is a prime viewing area of the city as well as unique design potential. •Connecting all of these slopes and contours throughout the area is the historic Cannonball River adding lush green grass, fertile farmland, and wildlife that move about it all from the very tallest butte to the lowliest spring fed reservoirs. There are also focuses on Inventory and Analysis such as... Building Analysis, History, Uses of the Site, Soil & Other Materials, Light Pollution, Seasonal Issues, Slope/Contours, Circulation, Demographics of Area, Site in Context, Mass/Void Analysis, and Utilities and Infrastructure, along with other topics.

When looking closely at a site analyzing all the details of on the site some things to think about looking at as we did for this project are... Placement of gathering areas such as... The Rest Area, Signage, Restroom, New Shelter, Water Spigot, Information Kiosk, Sidewalks, Native American Statue, Memorial Garden, Path to Nursing Home, Assisted Living, and Senior Living Center, Memorial Benches and Trash Cans, Existing Shelter, Rain Garden, Dock Storage, Benches, Wildflowers and Grass Mixture Are these elements... Easily Accessible Is there some kind of connection to all the areas...

The Teahouse and Garden
For this project design it was important to connect with the Japanese culture, by studying the Japanese Ceremony, Haiku Poetry, and Sumi Brush Painting. When doing this the design applied ritual to the design concept of a Teahouse and Garden located on a site along the Red River in Fargo, ND. This first project used design principles and a process from initial site investigation, to design a concept and design for the Teahouse and Garden.

Design Concept


Master Plan and Model

Teahouse and Garden
In the Teahouse and Garden Design there is much emphasis on the elements used to create a building up of emotions. The focal points are one that is revealed to you as you overcome the different elements. The process of moving from the approach to the Tea House is one that takes great thought and exploration. When following the path it will take the guest by a number of different elements that all represent something different, with great meaning. Also the path from the Tea House gives a feeling of great achievement.



Master Plan and Sections
Encased History Regent Park
Regent, North Dakota
Over the course of the semester during this project that combined the 3rd and 5th year L.A. student’s work. The 3rd year students worked to design a more detailed plan of a site in Regent. This project took place in the town of Regent, North Dakota. This was once a growing town, with a healthy population and demographics. Like many small towns in the Midwest, the town of Regent is declining. The town, once diverse in age population and growing, has become lessened with the youth of the town moving out.

In the park design of Regent there is a certain sense that is bought on by the community. It is to shows and is interacted with for the purpose of gaining knowledge of the site and its original context. The strong connection of the neighboring community and the agricultural past is presented when faced with the mechanism of the aged ways.

Halverson Park

Battle Lake, Minnesota
In the design of the park project native plants of the region were used to create a colorful pathway for residents young and old, and tourist visiting from out of town to leisurely walk through the park. The design also called for different materials to emphasize the usability of the entire site.

Detailed Planting Plan



Regent Park Regent, North Dakota
The park design for Regent uses native plant materials and trucks and tractors to enrich the town’s rural heritage and setting. The plantings add both much needed color to the area and also adds a boundary and barrier from the street. These perspectives show the two raised elements in the site. They give the pronounced view to the mechanical elements in the park. The structures are meant to be interacted with, climbed, and played on.

Materials Used in the Design
The design consists of materials that are found on rural farmsteads.

Seating in Regent Park

In doing so it will maintain low costs, and provide large gathering areas through out park. It also allows for the opportunity to attraction visitors as well as local citizens.

The design was to create a more pleasing downtown area, by implementing a better connection to the neighborhoods and creating a more pedestrian friendly downtown area. Also to work with the safety of the pedestrians in proposing a stronger more defined intersections. When breaking up the scale of the building heights there will be a buffer zone in between the buildings to give comfort to the pedestrians. The designs will specifically focus on the streetscape and buildings to create a stronger community and economic growth along with urban vitality in this area of downtown. A strong connection to the Red River will be created by emphasizing and preserving the greenery in the downtown area. Taking these actions will create a more successful and inviting downtown community.
