  • 2Landscape architecture is about catching a fleeting moment of our environment

    and making it legible through design. These moments, over time, reveal a process that was hidden in plain sight.

    This portfolio showcases my design strategies to change perception and acknowledge process based design, with each of these projects at different scales.

    While landscape architecture has taught me the value of all the qualities that go into shaping our space, my education in architecture backs that up with

    intricate working details. My strongest skills are that of design detailing and exploring representation through mixed media.

    Every project in the following pages opens me up to diverse explorations and my passion for this unknown adventure is what I hope for even in the professional realm.

    APPROACH

    Plant Ephemerality (SEM 3, 2015)

    To understand and design with change in inherent qualities of a landscape such as space, texture, color.

    Young White Birch trees are planted with vertical logs. Over 75 years, the landscape changes to show the growth of trees, while the logs are cut with respect to this growth. The design shows change to represent history as well as space.

    Designing with maintenance strategies

    Sand box encompassed with layers of Broom Sedge and wildflowers. The raised planter bed provides shade just enough for the kids. The prominent growth are the clumps of Broom Sedge in the fall and the winter. They are cut back in the spring and summer when the wildflowers bloom, to give place to different atmosphere. Peak heights of plants are shown in the time line which co-inside with the school durations for children.

    PROJECT

    AIM

    APPROACH

    Kendall Creek Tract (SEM 4, 2015)

    A Longleaf forest of 8 acres, to be implemented for wildlife (Red Cockated Woodpeckers), for people, for the recognition of culture (Creek Indian) and Geographic value (Coastal plains and Piedmont Fall line.)

    To bring people to the midst of the forest and introduce them to design forms representing Native Creek Indian culture. These spaces are the epitome of wilderness and yet have a structured form. They build up on the processes subjected by the environment, such as wind and water dispersal.

    PROJECT

    AIMPublic Art - Montgomery ( 3rd SEM, Fall 2014)

    Montgomery's faded downtown needed revitalization and public art was one that could help visitors understand it's rich history and culture.

    With the help of redirected traffic, commerce street becomes an event space for the people that travel far and wide to experience the culture of the south. The space works to rebirth the Alabama Music Festival with The Dragon Boat Race. The mounds bring people to the end of the street, lead them to the Alabama River through the historic Tunnel that once brought "Slaves" to America.

    As technology makes way for new forms of interaction, how can we leverage it to create novel experiences in public space design?

    The design demonstrates the use of consensus based content to inform the users of public opinion. The public spaces acts as a stage for all voices, big or small, to hold interaction like the one mostly done on social media and other such forums. As the content begins to match, so does interaction, by acknowledging that opinions are shared.

    PROJECT

    AIM

    APPROACH

    INTERACTION REDEFINED

  • 29

  • 30

  • 31

    Each screen builds on the content, that is found to be most common amongst the visitors. When a match is detected, the screen lights up to show the shared content. With this, the people who have matched acknowledge each others presence and opinion.

    The diagram shows the design react to just a few peoples matches to an entire crowd of a common opinion coming face to face.

  • 32

    The design also houses more private areas, acknowledging and accommodation the use of cell phones distinctively. The rooms allow for charging stations that come with music sharing devices, such that, a shared music content would automatically start to play when the next person occupied the space, allowing a new form of interaction.

    Research methods- Design Test(SEM 5, 2015)

    To use underpasses in urban areas to their fullest advantage.

    Infrastructures such as underpasses have the advantage of levels. It creates a habitat for homeless people. Such an opportunity has been mismanaged for ages. By showing the value of this un-derpass in New Jersey, through an art exhibit as a Hip Hop stage, the under-pass would change perception of Hip Hop as well as underpasses being a safety hazard.
