  • Heather Ferrell : design portfoliocollaboration + public art + community engagement

  • Connection is what I intend to foster through design. Connection to our surroundings, to culture, to our community. The following projects foster a connection through the themes of

    collaboration

    Industrial compost that instigates an entangled regeneration of the Booth Kelly site in Springfield, Oregon.

    The average American generates 4.6 pounds of trash per day, 1,460 pounds per year. In a collaborative effort, we throw away 195 million tons of garbage per year. Can you picture trash in such a quantity? Probably not, because traditional designs of solid waste facilities promote expedience and a design intended to conceal the facility. In contrast, the goal of artCycle is to reveal the waste disposal and recycling processes. And in doing this, create a resource to industrial artists and incubator upcycle businesses.

    Thesis project completed in my final year of the M.Arch program at University of Oregon.

  • Material Recovery Facility

    A MRF is the first step in the recycling process. Single stream recyclables are brought to the facility where they are cleaned and meticulously sorted by people and machinery. A thorough sorting process results in high quality reusable material.

    The sketches above storyboard the visitors experience of visiting artCycle.

    Spectacle from downtown View before entering Entrance : signs of art Ascending tower, scanning art Top of tower : grunge handrail Descend narrow stairs Enter ramp, views out Enter sorting : grunge to light

  • Descend over glowing trash Walk along trash conveyor Up close to trash and workers Exit sorting : grunge + green Art yard : sweat, rust, creating Tonight, a film projected But now, a walk To find art aging in the forest

    Industrial Art Center

    A place for artists and incubator businesses who are taking advantage of material coming in on the waste disposal pipeline. They have access to shared resources: wood, metal, glass shops, each other. Center also holds community workshops and youth programs.

    The images at the far bottom are photos I took at the site and then manipulated and named in order to express the character and elements of place I intended to emphasize. A sort of poetic site analysis.

  • Section through Art Center and outdoor support space, looking towards Material Recovery Facility

    After ascending the tower and walking down the ramp viewing large art hanging in the screen, the public enters the Material Recovery Facility four flights above the tipping floor - the entrance of recycled material. The public descends the glass enclosed staircase, open to below on the interior, viewing educational and interactive displays along the way. Here they have direct access to sights, sounds and smells of the facility.

  • Art Center Second Floor

    Art Center Ground Floor

    Office space for upcycle businesses, overlooks shop space below.

    Individual artist studios, open up to wood, glass and metal shop space.

    Ramp, connecting tower to MRF - interior has close up views of art in screen and distant views of art created in art yard.

    Artists and their work overflow into outdoor support space and art yard.

  • The last leg of the journey takes the visitor past the Art Center to the Sculpture Forest and restored wetland. There are nature trails and outdoor displays of industrial art.

    NOMADNomad Design Collaborative is made up of five colleagues with backgrounds in architecture, landscape architecture, and graphic design. Nomad was hired as the lead designers for this commercial mixed use project in East Boston. Our responsibilities also included engaging the community through neighborhood meetings to garner support as a commercial project within a residential zone.

    Work was completed by myself, Shane Gibbons and Lee Jorgensen between May and Deember, 2014.9

  • The existing building is a 10,000 SF former woodworking shop, to be redeveloped by the owners grandson. The footprint of the building will remain the same, but the size will increase to 14,000 SF and include a diverse program. The site is adjacent to the East Boston Greenway and one block

    from the waterfront. The area is seeing large scale redevelopment in which the neighborhood feels they have little voice. In contrast, this project has earned the solid support of the community as their input has been integral throughout the design process.

    ...allow subtle complexities to arrive through material and varied applications of same object [wood screen]...play on industrial ...material with substance and texture ...different levels of visible activity

    Wood Screen Language: ...dual appearance: day v. night ...repetitive quality of industrial architecture...reveals its structure ...unifies program ...creates distinct, yet subtle variations...simple moves to create a complex whole ...allows light in while providing privacy...connection to history of building and harbor ...creates luminaire at night

  • This is the story of ten architecture students tasked with building a structure for an immigrant farming collective. The program includes a tractor shed, a cooler for stored berries, a selling stand, a washing area and tool/general storage throughout. The clients were also in need of a place for the families to meet as a group;

    a place to not only work, but a place to gather together. A major constraint and opportunity was that the structure needed to be completely deconstructable and moveable. For every decision we made we kept in mind: how easily can this construction be understood, deconstructed and built again.
