3: Industrial Park | 3 | The industrial park, located in downtown Athens, Georgia, is situated on a half acre lot. The design includes a waterpark that is run off of storm water. Filtered through a man-made wetland, the water circulates through the park to allow children to manipulate and explore their surroundings. The wetland serves as an educational opportunity as children discover its cleansing power. Most of the materials used are recycled concrete.

5: The Atrium | 5 | The Atrium is located between Denmark Hall and Caldwell Hall on the campus of UGA. The space is an estimated 3000 square feet. There is an elevation change of 9 feet, as there is access to Denmark's basement. This design is influenced by the architectural styling of Caldwell Hall and is enclosed by an atrium. The atrium serves to protect users from the elements while allowing them to feel close to nature.

11: Southlake Village | 11 | Southlake Village is a conceptual master plan located in Morrow, Georgia. It serves as the edge of the Town Center district next to the Southlake Mall. This site has a minimum of 414000 square feet of building space, and has 16 acres of greenspace. Southlake Village creates a sense of place for the suburban city of Morrow.
13: Residential Design | 13 | Residential design is a unique area of Landscape Architecture. Many homeowners are looking for simple solutions to their outdoor needs. These plans are samples of the work I have done in the Athens-Clarke County area.
15: Residential Design | 15 | This is an acre plot in north Athens. It is to be developed into student housing. I developed the conceptual plan and created a brochure for advertising to potential investors.
