Aqua Pavilion 2.0
Role: Project Co-Leader
Following a week-long design charrette in the fall of 2015, the following design-build project expands upon a collection of student concepts for a rainwater catchment structure for Grow Pittsburgh's Martin Luther King Community Garden.
Located in the Hill District neighborhood, this abandoned baseball field was reclaimed by the organization to develop a community space for local residents to grow their own produce and host local events. This structure supports these functions in addition to collecting enough water to irrigate the planting beds and plots thus eliminating the need for city water supply.
As a co-leader for this project, I coordinated with a team of dedicated students to realize a design from conception to fabrication. In addition to producing schematic design and construction drawings I engaged with Pittsburgh city officials, local architects, Grow Pittsburgh volunteers, stormwater engineers, and community members to adhere to the project intentions and budget.
