2. table of contents My Portfolio The following portfolio is organized to showcase my work at a range of different scales while utilizing a variety of skills. All of the work provided are only examples from complete projects that illustrate skills in analysis, conceptualization, programming, and rendering. The first two sections are divided into small scale and large scale projects. The small scale projects include both public and private designs. The larger scale portion of the portfolio ranges from redevelopment plans to campus development. Within construction documentation, there are examples of a range of understanding and skills from plans, to details, to stormwater calculations. These skills are utilized in all the projects provided. The conclusion of the portfolio includes a small design for a national competition that was entered with two other students. The competition called for the redesign of the stormwater system for an area on my university campus. 3. table of contents Small Scale Site Design1 Larry Weaner Landscape Associates Baltimore Office of Sustainability Vacant Lot Rejuvenation 2 4 Site + Campus Design Cologne Germany Gromarkt Redevelopment Willow Grove NAS-JRB Redevelopment Guidelines 10 11 17 21 21 23 24 Construction Documentation West Campus Commons Planting Plan East Campus Grading Plan Construction Details for Landscape Elements 25 Design Competition EPA Campus Rainworks Competition 29 Resume 4. small scale design 1 Ryan Parisi Small Scale Site Design This portion of the portfolio will include smaller scale designs at both the public and private level.
