Graphic Representation

  • Spring, 2013. UC Davis.
  • Winter, 2013. Rhode Island School of Design. These two documents are an infographic detailing the water crisis ensuing in Phoenix AZ. The research elucidated the reality that eventually Phoenix's current water resources will run dry. With my understanding, I estimated the date when, if Phoenix doesn't change its current water uses, that day will occur. The goal of the infographic is to spark awareness of the need for enhanced water conservation efforts in Phoenix but also in other cities that dwell in arid climates.
  • Fall, 2013. Rhode Island School of Design. A photo montage that conceptually illustrates my initial ideas of landscape synergized by water, music, and play.
  • Spring, 2014. Rhode Island School of Design. A photo montage entitled "The Chord" that symbolizes two meanings of a public corridor that is part of a larger, proposed greenway system in Central Falls RI. The first meaning eludes to the impact music and sound can have on a visitor's experience. Even sounds like a train rolling by could be deemed unwanted; however, a mixture of other sounds, visual cues, and lighting can make an unwanted event into a spectacle that brings great anticipation and attraction.
  • Spring, 2014. Rhode Island School of Design. The Narrow Way was a final project for a graduate studies course entitled "All About The Why". I was to create a project that reflects my deepest intentions as a landscape architect...a place that beautiful blends geometry, spirituality, and symbolism. Furthermore, The Narrow Way illustrates a landscape that I, if given the choice, would visit and enjoy daily.
  • Fall, 2013. Rhode Island School of Design. This board was developed to illustrate the climate and hydrology of a site in Boston, Massachusetts. My colleague, Yanan Wu, and I thoroughly studied wind and weather patterns and how that would experientially affect one's comfort within the site boundary. A series of illustrative maps help indicate areas of use according to our results.
  • Spring, 2013. UC Davis. A graphic that informs of the various drainage sheds within the University of California, Davis campus.
  • Fall, 2012. UC Davis. An infographic detailing the water remediation processes within the John Deere tractor facilities in Mannheim Germany. This specific factory has one of the largest and most innovative rooftop wetland systems for bioremediation of the factory's wastewater.
  • Spring, 2014. Rhode Island School of Design. A graphic that is tied to a graduate studies grand I won. The proposal was entitled "The Sounds in the Landscape" and looks into further studying what types of sounds exist within different types of landscapes and how do those sounds affect the experience of the visitor. This piece is called "The Sounds of Non-Silence".
  • Spring, 2013. UC Davis. An infographic that brings to the light the major impact of the dredging cycle within the arboretum drainage way at the University of California, Davis campus.
  • Spring, 2013. UC Davis. These graphics helped shape my argument for re-grading a portion of the UC Davis arboretum to improve water quality, habitat, and visual attraction. The project also indicates the possibility of including a Vignette that can bring visitors out into the water and educate them on the water remediating processes at work.
