Texas Tech University College of Architecture Houston Urban Design and Research Program + Practicum

Copyright Information 2011

Dear Reader,
This fall, the College of Architecture at Texas Tech University welcomed its first class of graduate students enrolled in the Master of Architecture Program with a Graduate Certificate in Urban and Community Design Studies. The program began its infancy as the Houston Practicum + Studio Program in 2004, was recognized with an NCARB Prize in 2006 for its contributions towards a strong academic connection to practice, and has since grown to provide new graduate education opportunities to students enrolled in the Master of Architecture Program at Texas Tech University. The new program, based in Houston, takes place over the final three semesters of the graduate education. Courses are offered both in Houston and through distance learning education. The intention of the program is to provide students with a particular interest in urbanism to complete their master level education in architecture through a unique opportunity bridging academics with practice. Houston, as the program location, was selected for two primary reasons: it offers an opportunity for exploration of contemporary American city issues in an environment well suited as a laboratory city (lack of zoning, fourth largest city in the US); and it is host to a significant number of nationally and internationally recognized firms. The following catalog is not intended as a critique of work, nor should it be considered a vetted academic piece illustrating ‘best works’ in the program, rather, it is intended as documentation of the first full graduate class in this program. It lays out the curriculum, course descriptions, examples of work performed and particular instances from student’s practicum experiences. The program could not exist without the generous support of our alumni and for that, we are most grateful. It is my hope that you will enjoy learning about the program and find the work of our students interesting and relevant.

Introduction: The studio + practicum graduate program represents a long-term goal set by the college to establish greater opportunities for students to receive a specialized graduate MAP NOT COMPLETED education that fully engages practice. Goals include educating students for effective practice in architecture, as well as producing leaders that are able to meet the demands of a changing profession, and whose technical skills will be complemented by personal vision, ethical persuasiveness, and entrepreneurial drive. The project, as a graduate specialization in particular, encompasses 30 hours of a 42 hour graduate curriculum and as such, is seen as a larger umbrella project committed to the integration of practice and education within all course offerings. Students begin their graduate work with a comprehensive graduate studio taken at the host college location, followed by a move to the satellite program city for greater access to the profession and a more cohesive urban setting. The following courses are listed as introduced into the graduate practice-based curriculum.

Houston History Houston was founded by Augustus C. and John K Allen in 1836, and was named after Sam Houston. The City was founded on the edge of Buffalo Bayou. In order to bring people to Houston, artist depicted Houston as a mountainous area with wide green space. Upon arrival settlers realized that they were in an area with little to no elevation change, but were intrigued by the natural beauty found in Houston. The way in which Houston grew was through the implementation of annexations. Meaning that areas were developed as neighborhoods, communities, and cities then, they were absorbed into Houston. The annexation of property made it seem as though Houston had no zoning, but within each of the annexed areas came pockets of zoning. This rapid growth and expansion is known as sprawl. Sprawl has influenced the lack of density downtown and the growth of suburban areas outside, or on the edge of, the city. Current Houston Houston has a current population of 2.3 million people which makes it the 4th largest city in the nation. Houston is now known for its entertainment, job market, and living conditions. In Houston there is the Museum of Fine Arts, the Rothko Chapel, the Museum of Medical Science, the Cullen Sculpture Garden, the Burke Planetarium and, of course, the Houston Ballet and the Houston Grand Opera. Each of these places offers one the opportunity to explore the city life. According to the United State Federal Budget Committee the unemployment, national average is 9.5% while Houston, in August of 2010 was 8.5% unemployment. There are many job opportunities in Houston especially in technology and medical fields. Houston is a very diverse city that maintains a “Texas” lifestyle. According to the National Census Bureau, the cost of living in Houston is 10% lower than the national average. The area contained within the I-610 loop is well known for its inability, to drain or move water. An in depth study of the Shipping Channels, Bayou Systems, Flood Plains, and Water Sheds can provide one with a better understanding of how this flooding occurs, and how one can design a solution to better use of the floodplains. Water Features Houstons Water Features include the Ship Channel which originally began at the intersection of Buffalo Bayou and White Oak Bayou. Funding was secured in 1911 to widen and deepen Buffalo Bayou and Galveston Bay. Construction of the Houston Ship Channel, which would reach a depth of 25 feet, was completed ahead of schedule in 1914. The channel passes Galveston and continues into the Gulf of Mexico. Flooding Upon viewing the images and mapping of Houston’s flooding issue, one realizes that that attention need be paid to the issue of how to move water out of Houston and into Galveston Bay. In order to understand how Houston floods, one must look at Houston’s bridge systems, and understand that the roadways were built to flood. TSARP published a map representing the floodplains along each of the bayous this study focuses on the White Oaks and Brays Bayou. The diagram of this area eliminates the distraction and allows on the opportunity to view the city with respect to its main arteries, and their intersection points with the Bayous. Upon investigation of the different nodes, three were selected based off the surrounding areas and the green space located near each.

ARCH 5334 - Advanced Construction IV Summer 2010 or Spring 2011
Explaining Houston Advanced Construction Approach
During the development of this graduate curriculum, it was determined that students needed to have a more practical and pragmatic understanding of practice-based construction methods. It was through this understanding that additional partnerships were created with local practitioners for teaching opportunities. The idea was to bring practitioners with advanced expertise into the classroom to instruct students for on methods of construction relevant to practice. Students are taught in a classroom hosted by the firm. The firm instructor brings in young architectural interns to participate in the classroom with students. This provides an opportunity for students to interact with interns new to the profession, and creates a dialog about entering the practice that would otherwise not be available. The course content presents a specific building, but creates a series of advanced construction problems focused around typical construction issues in building design.

ARCH 5384 - Infrastructure in the Urban Environment Fall 2010
Course Description
Infrastructure in the Ubran Environment is taught as a seminar course with specific intent in the utilization of practitioners involved in city infrastructure within the classroom. Professionals provide a lecture that is specific to their expertise with explicit intent to engage the student in both an understanding of and dialog about the particular subject matter. Professionals are drawn from areas such as, city planning, civil engineering, community leadership, local non-profit planning organizations, city parks department, county government, and city council. The overall intent is to enable students to understand the comprehensive role of infrastructure in long-term metropolitan city growth and development. Through the use of writing, photography, and sketches we examined and reflected the architecture and infrastructure around us and discussed our thoughts and findings in class. 26 Aug First Day of Class

Defining the course
Taught through distance learning, the course offers an opportunity for students to become engaged in community organization and practice through a servicelearning, research-based project. Local organizations may team with local practitioners. The student conducts the primary research for projects ranging from community-wide strategic planning/master planning to site specific community driven design projects. Students may therefore meet with local governmental entities and practitioners as partners in project development. Student work is published to an online site for ongoing community access.

6.1 SWOT Analysis

A SWOT analysis was conducted to identify the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats that downtown Houston pose. The analysis involved identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for the development of downtown.

Strengths: Factors or conditions that are attributes of downtown. Ultimately, the strengths identify key locations, venues and factors that become assets for the proposal.

Weaknesses: The characteristics that inhibit a sustainable design for downtown Houston. How can improvements be made in response to the weaknesses.

Opportunities: The external conditions that could help achieve sustainable solutions for downtown.

Threats: Based on the SWOT analysis, identify areas where recommendations for change can be recommended.

SWOT Analysis
Following weeks of understanding a community’s infrastructure, city figures’ roles and responsibilities, and how a city government functions, we were finally given the opportunity to complete a SWOT analysis. We were allowed to utilize our site chosen for Urban Design Studio as the site in which to focus our analysis. SWOT: “Strengths” - The positive aspects of our chosen sites. Things that made a positive impact on the community, infrastructure, or city ranging from city policies to design/layout conditions. “Weaknesses” - The negative aspects of our chosen sites. Items that hurt it or hindered areas’ infrastructure, community, or city from minor to major potential problems. “Opportunities” - Conditions that can help design sustainable solutions. This could constitute as city law changes, funding is being raised for miscellaneous projects, or other such external conditions. “Threats” - Where the opportunities lie, there are also elements that threaten the success of a plan or laws/ ordinances/zoning that hinders the chances of a plan working well. It can range from legislation to cost.

Magnolia Grove, West End, Rice Military, and Woodcrest are SN22’s early-to-mid 20th Century traditional, working-class cottage and bungalow neighborhoods. Developed as multi-ethnic suburbs surrounding a small freedman’s town; these semi-rural communities with corner stores and small businesses, tree lined streets, front yards and porches, were once served by Houston’s longest street rail line. Trolley service along Washington Avenue ran all night to accommodate the area residents who were railroad shift workers during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Some streets in these neighborhoods retain much of their traditional character, but many have now transitioned to a higher-density urban residential model.7

Bradley Bosworth “Green Promenades”

Project Description
In an effort to reconnect revitalized Buffalo Bayou paths and trails to downtown green space, Green Promenades looks to explore sustainable solutions and make those missing links. Green Promenades works to also alter negative perceptions of Buffalo Bayou and dirty downtown streets into aesthetically pleasing and healthy spaces that become linear extensions of green spaces and therefore promenades filled with walking, biking, transit, and varying levels of interaction. First, Mr. Bosworth chose a study area, downtown Houston, where he then began distinguishing project features and elements and outlining project objectives. After completing a SWOT [Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats] analysis of the downtown area, he identified parks and open spaces that had weak or no connections to Buffalo Bayou. With these as his new focal points, he evaluated what were attractions or community venues were around, economic divisions that might influence them, and existing/ potential residential spaces. Streets and intersections relative to chosen focal points were analyzed for pedestrian friendliness, ADA compliance, and multi-transportational availability. For each street intersection he identified, he distinguished what was good or bad about them based on previously stated criterion.

He finally begins proposing features that created way finding, were vehicular corridors that would be changed, and how those two could be combined to make promenades friendly to vehicles, bicyclists, pedestrians, and green spaces. To help encourage the use of proposed promenades, he urges a program be implemented to plan how green spaces and there links can be utilized through the use of these promenades for all-day use.

Noella Cantu “Bayou Districts”

Project Description Existing and proposed elements of infrastructure are conditions that urban planners must always take into account. Houston’s single, new light rail line has become an important improvement to Houston’s ¬quality of life. The main issues that Ms. Cantu initially thought stood out in Houston: transportation and the 21 unique waterways. After little research, she found quickly that several new light rail lines would help Houston’s transportation issues by reducing traffic significantly. At four out of the six new/ proposed lines, they passed over waterways. In the end, she chose sites near the University of Houston Downtown at White Oak Bayou and near the University of Houston main campus at Brays Bayou. Site analysis was an important component of the design project to really work out what was missing from each site and what conditions can be improved such as poor trail conditions or . Since this is a project about interaction between transportation, water, and the intersections between the two, understanding what the current interaction conditions are was a large part of the site analysis - aside from the other components of floodplains, site access, topography, site access and existing paths.

The existing steps serve as rest areas along the site and provide an area for users to sit and relax by the bayou. 4. SITE ACCESS The site is easily accessible through multiple access points. Three water level and two elevated bridges allow access from several directions and levels. Stairs along Main Street creates an accessible pathway for light rail users. The ADA rampway and set of stairs located under Main Street provides access from ground level. The site can also be accessed from a pre-existing ramp along ? Street. 5. EXISTING PATHS New pathways connect with existing pathways and link areas around the bayou. Pathways are extended and lead to pre-existing city hike and bike trails.

VIBRANT URBAN INTERACTION

Only once extensive research has been completed can solutions be proposed. For the site based around the N University of Houston Downtown Campus, concepts that DT were deeply influential in this design include peoples’ inability to access potential public space located below the bridge bordering the main building of the campus and around the bayou. The proposal includes a staircase with large landings to function as resting points for users to observe the area from different vantage points, a platform near the water that would function as a space for yoga, relaxing, and interacting, pedestrian bridges to cross the bayous, access to the existing and proposed extended lightrail line, and finally culturally significant opportunities for art displays with additional lighting.

T-ZONE

At the other site near the University of Houston main campusN Brays Bayou, its already sloped topography at provided an opportunity for slight reshaping of the DT landscape to allow public access to green space along the bayou. Eventual lightrail access nearby brings people through the space and this design provides them a place to go. Similar to the other site, this site has space for art displays, platforms for yoga and interaction, and a stepped entry into the site that allows different vantage points but also places to sit. Dissimilarly, this has a pool to provide people an escape from the heat and alleviates the temptation to use the bayou as a place to swim.

6. PLAZA STEPS The large pre-existing steps allow users to sit and relax by the bayou. The wide steps can also serve as a place for people to eat and drink during their lunch break. With a variety of wildlife in this area there is always something to watch.

7. PLATFORM The platform creates a versatile area for events ranging from yoga classes to cultural performances. The platform can change depending on the need. With the University of Houston and numerous businesses nearby the site will always be occupied.

8. ART & LIGHT DISPLAY The existing columns under the bridge include strips of light that also serve as an art piece. This art piece incorporates the use of grass to soften the feel and texture of the concrete. The area under the bridge allows artists to display their artistic light displays. This lighting would contribute to the existing lighting and provide a safe illuminated area for night time users.

For example, having organization and order may be achieved by containing trails and paths as they are often I-10 used to create boundaries and way finding opportunities. The user then has a sense of being in a space with White Oak Bayou direction and form. This may also lend a calm experience to the site as order and structure yield a more usable space as opposed to a chaotic and unkept site that a user may not be able to navigate well.

As a masterplan of the bayou becomes developed, Mr. Cordingly considers the biggest engineering feat in the project: an underground parking design that can function as an overflow space for the bayou. This part of the design calls for the underground facility to be buried in the embankment of the bayou’s edge that provides a floodable pass-through drive, floodable parking areas, and multi-use areas of restaurants and small shops. In anticipations of high water levels, the drives would be closed off with a bollard system restricting vehicle entry and multi-use areas closed off with flood gates.

Brendon Hoffman “Bridging Houston”

Project Description
The main idea driving this project is one that the city of Houston has pondered for years. How does one connect two of Houston’s main Hike and Bike Trails. As Houston grows, focus will turn to infrastructure developments such as roads and away from the development of community areas. To maintain a healthy and green initiative, it becomes important to focus on areas that can be developed that encourage biking, jogging, and walking; something that Houston has barely begun to do in the past decade. Through the neighborhood of Northside Village, the Heights bike trail and the Buffalo Bayou bike trail connection will allow the public to move from residential areas to downtown through this new, proposed multiuse path. The significance of bridging this path will be explored through research and through a SWOT [Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats] analysis. Mr. Hoffman, in his research, begins looking through Houston’s long history of economics, population influxes, and water features; all of which go hand in hand. Further research into Houston’s water features and subsequent flooding leads him to analyze the relationship that the bayou systems and roads share with one another.

The intersections created by road and water at different locations are expressed diagrammatically accentuating where road or water may stop, slow, pass over or under each other, and edges of each. Creating a collage of images and diagrams of such conditions helps him to represent different aspects of each spatially and thus constructing a representation of movement through the city where both water and road are extremely important. Applying what he learns are ideal or successful conditions at analyzed intersections informs his design project of site selections, bridging two spaces, and the bridge.

Michael Morow “Sustainable Urban Redevelopment”

Project Description
Houston is a city known for its traffic, humidity, and its tendency to flood. These items summarize Houston’s reputation and became natural points to research first. What Mr. Morow discovered in his research is that despite urban spaces, parks, and running/biking trails that closely correspond with several bayous that populate Harris County, accessibility improvements and health concerns are issues that still need to be addressed. He found that the bayous were aesthetically unappealing, concrete lined ditches that often collect trash and sewage as water drains into them and when they are over capacity and flood, they can cause damage to streets, sidewalks, and buildings and therefore property belonging to individuals and to the city. With few pedestrian bridges, sparse accessible green space, flooding, and little wayfinding to bring people to the bayou, Mr. Morow addresses these issues in a master plan he calls a “Sustainable Urban Redevelopment.”

Following precedence studies of green developments and access to waterways as well as businesses or residential buildings that similarly engage water, Mr. Morow finds a site along Brays Bayou within the Medical District at the Texas Floodway Medical Center that could most benefit from implementation of a more accessible, green space that has previously suffered from much flooding and had potential for continued urban growth. His masterplan features a “tentacle” to draw people toward the bayou as well as reduce flooding risks, a LEED certified mixed-use structure to increase densification in the area, and natural trails, pedestrian bridges with underground water retention, recreational lawns, an urban forest, and overall walkability improvements.

Kenneth Olson “The New Heights”

Project Description
Natural disasters like Hurricane Alicia, Tropical Storm Allison, and Hurricane Ike riddle Houston’s history with lost homes, property, and lives. These storms brought wind, tornados and flooding that maxed out Houston’s drainage capabilities. Mr. Olson proposes the design and building of homes in economically poor areas that can withstand a damaging feature that effects Houston the most: flooding. Mr. Olson first starts identifying parts of Houston where severe flooding has happened in the past along or near waterways, where poverty or lower income residents reside, and where design potential exists. It is in these places that the most social and physical damage occurs and remains the longest. By developing housing that would sustain less initial damage, improvements can continue to grow in the area and not necessarily be diminished or hurt by natural disasters. Following precedence research for “floating houses” and buildings meant to withstand flooding, he identifies six possible sites. For each, he diagrams land use and cross references that data with damage sustained in previous floods and hurricanes.

Chelsea Serrano-Piche “Transit Moments”

Project Description
Since this studio was to be based around Houston’s bayous, the first research included how the Bayou was previously used. Used not just for freight and as a port, the bayous also functioned as transportation for people in the city. This developed questions about how it may or may not be able to be used as an avenue for public transportation. This brought on further questions about how to improve connectivity in areas as well as throughout the city. Looking for the opportunities for densities and places where movement may be focused, the investigation that took place inspired forms, feelings, features, and organization. Choosing a site in Bellaire, a city land-locked by Houston, and with limited connectivity to the nearby bayou, a discussion took place regarding what elements or atmospheres would be appropriate for different locations, moments began to be defined as hybrids. As different potential moments are influenced by surrounding land use, types of users present, and user densities, these influences begin to express the heavier influences through the assigned elements.

When the opportunity arises, designing for a specific area can create a space that will allow large volumes of people and diversity to become a city-wide point of interest. It also produces outlets and connectivity to the city. The plan is open to many different activities. Subtle differences in the section of the landscape creates varying focus areas or spots for different activities.

Garrett Taylor “Brays Bayou Pedestrian Corridor”

Project Description
Designed to reduce the risk of flooding, Project Brays is an effort between the Harris County Flood Control District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which would be the largest and most significant flood damage reduction initiative ever to be managed by HCFCD. Project Brays consists of over seventy individual projects along thirtyone miles of Brays Bayou in Houston, Texas which include channel modification, bridge modifications, and detention basins. This design project tackles how Project Brays and its modifications can become a more meaningful urban space by enhancing residents’ quality of life and the image of Houston through the use of a larger Bike Trail initiative and accompanying amenities. Mr. Taylor starts with analyzing how one can measure quality of life. He identifies that health, community life, social environment, public services and transportation, and recreation are the most important factors that influence his project and are lacking in Houston. He also recognizes the importance of riding a bicycle as not just a recreational activity, but as a viable means of transportation pointing out that Houston’s discontinuous and aesthetically unappealing bicycle infrastructure, and that its dependency on the private motor vehicle, is extremely present.

Through analysis of major destinations for commuters and plausible bicycling distances, Mr. Taylor selects Brays Bayou from the West Loop Park & Ride location to the Hermann Park/HW-288 Intersection as his masterplan site with six major junctions along the route. He develops a corridor connection plan, a medical center area plan which functions as the primary destination for commuters along the Project Brays site, and a Hermann Park area plan each with their own goals and important functions.

Austin Wilson “Fluid City”

Project Description “The ‘Fluid City’ or ‘Liquid City’. What does this mean to your design project? Are there changes you need to make to address this? Is the relationship peripheral or integral? You decide. This is your opportunity…” With the eventual inquiry of these questions, a process has been developed. What is the true meaning behind Fluid and Liquid? Discovering and researching the theories, definitions, and thesis behind these two words and their applications into architectural design and urban space in Houston, Texas drives this work. The first step taken by Mr. Wilson is to research. Through a series of bubble webbing, he discovers and defines connections between “fluid”, “liquid”, and “flow” which was later isolated into its important and relevant points(see site image). He then develops a methodology which circulates between examining macro-conditions, then microconditions at various sites, and then experimenting with a test condition. The site he has chosen as a test condition, the Medical District, is located between several economic centers of Houston. With its activity and proximity to the Museum District, Rice University, major public transit lines, and Hermann Park it will continue to urbanize which makes his analysis of how it can urbanize an ideal site. As he analyses, observes, and will begin to design, he is conscious of infrastructure problems and solutions.

He analyses and designs based on the site’s accessibility, proposed and existing circulation paths and methods, land use needs and organization, and how spaces are shaped not just in an aerial or plan view (x and y dimensions) but how buildings, the bayou, and streets create form in the “z” direction.

Based off the cataloguing process of Kieran Timberlake and documented in their published work MANUEL: The Architecture of Kieran Timberlake the first assignment dictates that we, the students, will become familiar with our project’s study area by photographing instances of gerunds. Gerunds are words where a noun is turned into a verb by adding -ing and becomes the subject of a sentence. Such gerunds include: Framing Hinging Joining Lining Patching Profiling Scaling Selecting Slipping Weaving Through the practice of defining, photographing, evaluating and coiling this pattern, my photo documentation and the gerund definitions they follow can be seen in these ten gerunds in ten photos.

With a one week timeframe, each student was given a different residential study and asked to analyze and explain the main concepts.

Brendon Hoffman “Project Name”

The idea of the building is to take the conventional idea of the courtyard and flip it vertical. Using the circulation, they were able to move people from the ground level up to the sky “courtyard”. By integrating escalators and publically accessible circulation paths, it created a unique opportunity available to everyone.

The housing block with 79 apartments in Zaandam nestles itself into its surroundings like a snake into its basket. The block contains rental apartments for the free and social housing sector as well as 14 service apartments and colletive facilities for young handicapped people. In order to avoid that the row houses would lie in the shadow, the new building had to remain rather low. The characteristically sloping roof line is a reaction to the context of the building: a neighbourhood with small row houses on one side, and multi-storey housing slabs on the other side.

Assignment 5 - Class Model

Assignment Description
To demonstrate three-dimensionally students’ masterplans, and to create a better understanding for the students and observers, a site model was constructed. This 4 foot by 4 foot model is broken into four quadrants and involved three main components: buildings, contours, and roads/ highways. The class broke down into teams of three for each to handle one component. As one team may have been delayed in the construction of their part, the class as a whole made efforts to help and complete the model. It was constructed in Houston and taken to reviews both in Houston and Lubbock. In the future, it will be borrowed and displayed by city organizations and architecture related groups.

The project objective includes the creation of several LOFTS DOWNTOWN thousand new residential units within this specific area of downtown. The site supports easy access through pedestrian friendly sidewalks, bike lanes and on-street parking. Proposed implements provide safe areas to sit and socialize. Individual and collaborative research has influenced the design, from programming to urban planning to schematic architectural design.

Precedent Studies

The Elysian Viaduct cuts through the site and has greatly impacted the urban fabric and existing warehouse buildings. The proposed development is designed as a gateway for those traveling in both north and south directions. The Elysian Viaduct is one of the main roadways through the site, rebuilt with new six foot sidewalks providing safe access for pedestrians. Several intermittent vertical access points create unique places of interaction 500ft. 1,000ft. along the spine of the development. Connections to the Buffalo Bayou are also an important feature within the proposed development. A bridge supported by the structure of the Elysian Viaduct has created a safe urban passageway over the railroad track and over Interstate 10. The bridge gives pedestrians and bicyclist another option to move safely across the site.

The Elysian Gateway proposes a viable urban concentration north of downtown Houston, Texas. The project preserves many of the historic buildings that bring a unique character to the site, while maintaining access around the area in order to establish and grow a thriving community. Emphasis on pedestrian, bicycle, bus and vehicular connections are important to the design. The rehabilitation and extension of existing trails connects the site with other nearby city attractions.

Brendon Hoffman “The Moment”

Project Description
The promenade along Hardy will become a mixed-use environment influencing those that live in the new Hardy Yards development to move south towards a structure that will grasps the attention of anyone in the general area. As people move towards the tower, the storefronts will begin to activate, which will create a very vibrant and active area. In design it is important to remember, that people must always feel safe, if they are going to use the areas deemed to be pedestrian. While looking at the promenade in section, one can see that the pedestrian takes priority over the vehicle. This gives the user the sense of safety. Another element that users look for is that there are “eyes on the street.” For example, the balconies and open areas help to make the pedestrian feel as though they are never alone and that people will witness anything that may happen. Creating this environment will help move people from Hardy towards “The Moment.” The tower that will dominate the skyline will be 36 stories. At this height, the structure will become an icon of the Houston area. The development of the structure comes directly from the grid of Houston as it passes through the site, and allows for extraordinary manipulation of 1.the building. As the building moves up it rotates helping Major Corridor 2.adjusting Interest from facing hardy to facing downtown. Areas of the axis This not only allows the eye of the pedestrian to move up the building in a unique way, but allows the user or tenant to experience Houston in different ways at different levels. I find it interesting that one could even begin to describe the unit in which they reside by stating in which block they live. As one moves to the backside of the building there is a great opportunity for space along the bayou, the only problem is there is a very active railroad that runs along that area. To many this is an issue because of the sound emitted from the blasting of the horn and the vibration of the ground, but to me it is just another opportunity to design. The development of a parking and mix use structure, with urban park acting as roofs allows me to control the sound of the rail, and the access to the bayou. Creating a pathway up the structure, based on the gridlines that “The Moment” is designed, allows me to create a park that is connected to the bayou, structure and moment, all at different elevations. The Moment will bring life to the north side of Houston reactivate the area and generate an open space within the promenade. The trees will meander throughout the site helping to shade the user and offers Houstonians a new way of thinking about walking through an urban fabric.

Project Description

Residential:

Given a focal area just a few hundred yards north of downtown Houston one would think it would be a relatively dense urban setting, yet the area was primarily vacant due to the disconnect created by the infrastructure of interstate highways and railroads as well as the natural barrier of Buffalo Bayou.

This pedestrian RANGE from Hardy movement influences the streetscape and building orientation along McKee Street ultimately creating an 5 MINUTE RADIUS organic winding of pathways between the structures as if one is walking along a wooded path.

Upon learning of the imminent progress of the area with a large mixed-use development under construction and a city plan for increased rail and road connectivity to the central business district, the immediate thought was to capitalize on such growth. Using the redevelopment plan of McKee Street as the primary source to bring users into the area it only seemed natural to build directly off such veins of user movement. The natural connection to the planned large-scale mixed-use development, known as Hardy Yards, allows for site infill between Hardy Yards and Buffalo Bayou.

The design portion of the City Plaza captures the architectural language of the existing community while also providing some of its own, with the design and footprints of some of the buildings. In addition, the City Plaza implements its own forces by creating funnels extending from it to capture and bring people to its main core. The P framing of views and orientation of buildings are what allow P the system for the movement of pedestrians to and from the City Plaza to work.

Garrett Taylor “The Domicilio”

PERSPECTIVES

Project Description
The Domicilio is a development designed to draw permanent residents to downtown Houston. The term domicilio stems from the Latin word domicilium, which means “household”. While a person is allowed to have as many homes as they can afford, legally, they are only allowed to have one domicilio. The goal of this development is to create the type of community that people can see as a place they can establish a permanent residence. The first step to creating this development is to enhance the connectivity on the site. This is done by adding several streets, and redesigning others. The most notable street Mixed Use Residential additions will be a street running parallel to Buffalo Bayou MIXED-USE PROGRAM: and extending Sterret beyond its current terminus at McKee to continue into the fifth ward. These street additions will -Gym add -Liquor Store some much needed East/West connectivity on the site. -BookstoreThe most notable street redesign will be McKee.

In order to create the type of community that people can consider a permanent residence it must include all the amenities and necessities required for a comfortable lifestyle. To eliminate the need for people living in the community to have to travel too far to get groceries, go to the gym, meet a friend for a drink, etc. McKee will be a mixed-use boulevard. The first two floors will contain a wide array of retail/commercial services, and the upper floors will contain residential units. The primary focal point of the boulevard, and of the entire development, will be the intersection at McKee and Sterrett for several reasons. First, the first intersection in the development coming

from Downtown is the Domicilio’s front door. Second, it is the meeting point of two of the developments’ primary boulevards, and third, it is the only place on the site in which one can experience the railroad, the bayou, and the Elysian viaduct. This focal point will be landmarked with two iconic towers. The towers will feature retail on the first two floors, parking on the third & fourth floor bridging over the railroad and connecting the two towers, an outdoor amenity deck above the parking garage, and residential units from floors seven to thirty-nine. The top floor, floor forty, will feature indoor amenities.

Project Description
The northern side of downtown Houston is an exclusive region full of possibilities for a high-density urban development. This area is rich with historic culture and limitless opportunities to interact with upcoming developments and downtown Houston. Surrounded by large infrastructure projects including highways, bayous, and freight rail lines, they add to an interesting site context. They add prospects for elaborate design. Mr. Wilson’s large influences included such precedence as Funen Blok K in Amsterdam by NL Architects as well as Mountain Dwellings by BIG in Copenhagen. The concepts of undulating the roof to meet space requirements within the units and maximizing views from the roof level of structures set the stage for his design proposals. His main concepts would include providing views of downtown and having ample space for residents to enjoy outdoor spaces day or night. Project analysis of popular outdoor spaces included the likes of the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle and The Highline in New York City. This would help him program Houston’s own outdoor space combination of public, private, open parkland and programmed green space. These green freatures would function not just as new, accessible green space but also to add texture to the generally very flat landscape.

The overall proposal consists of an ultra-dense urban project that includes 2,500+ residential units, mix-use frontages for retail, restaurant, and grocery. Land would be purchased with an appropriate budget as a result of land evaluation and market analysis. The objective is to have a development that will sustain itself, be in close proximity to other urban centers and have ease of access by walking, bicycle, public transportation, or personal vehicle.

Sustainable design also played a role in Mr. Wilson’s proposal. Considering a study in Denmark, they have a requirement stating all structures must have green roofs to reduce pollution and improve air quality. As a city that has faced issues in the past with high pollution in the air, Houston may consider a similar idea to improve the city’s quality of life.

ARCH 5502 - Practicum + Independent Research and Studio Summer + Fall 2011
Practicum: During the last seven months of the graduate student’s program, they begin working within a professional office. The intention is to provide a practice-based education to the graduate student and terminate it with practice within an office. Partner firms hire students to work full time and agree to provide a mentor, as well as exposure to various aspects of the profession, such as client development and relationship, the business of practice, programming, construction documents, design basics, MEP, team collaboration, and field work. In addition, the firm works on a community design project with the student as an independent study. Faculty oversee the academic portions while firm mentor provides on-going guidance and interaction.
