Presenting is our very own @dlnybnnstr & @haileybrown.design . We have staked out our grounds and are starting pre-fabrication on our @utaustin campus. The location of the shade pavilion is surrounded by beautiful live oak trees and native Texas wild grasses and flowers. Stay tuned as we unroll into full construction mode. @utsoa @camparanzazu #texas #utsoa #wemadethat #architecturestudents #summer #heat #theheat #mosquitoes #build #constructionbuild #designbuild #askutsoa #landscape
One of our current projects ... definitely NOT modern. Our Summer interns (Virginia from USC, Griffin from Univ. of Texas, and Miranda from Univ. Of Arkansas) are killing it! . . . . . . . #whatthisarchitectdoes #design #lifeofanarchitect #usc #utsoa #fjsoa #model #modelmaking #modelmakingskills #residentialmodel #architectureinternship #oldschool #theyrock

Throwback to our idea board. Been great thinking about limitless potential for @camparanzazu new project. #design #utsoa #ideas #iteration #architecture #imadethat #wemadethat #utaustin #architecturestudents #critday #designbuild #designstudio #studio #summer
Drawing away! Bringing ideas to concrete solutions requires a series of reality checks which keeps the design true to the stakeholders! #designneverstops #utsoa #askutsoa #sketching #draw #drawing #coleman #trace #hours #ground
Ahh I️t’s been a hot second since I️ had my orientation but I️ already miss Austin so much!!! I couldn’t be happier with my home for the next five years and for all of the amazing people I’ve met so far :)) #utsoa
Presented our design to a panel of critiques. Boiling down the essence with the help of public engagement students, past participants of @gulf.coast.designlab and #utsoa faculty. We will be sharing our design with stakeholders in 2 weeks! Stay tuned! @camparanzazu @utsoa @utaustintx #design #architecture #nightowls #drawdrawdraw #dinetogether #creatives #utsoa

For my most recent project, all perspectives and sections were done by hand, enlarged and redlined, colored digitally, and then redlined again. Some #process and final product! . . . #handmade #handdrawn #architecturestudent #rendering #architecture #utsoa #hybriddrawing
FLOOD Resilience Hub, Southeast Austin, Texas. - The Resilience Hub, defined as a community center, safe-haven during climate events, and a proactive research institution, positions itself within the heart of a floodplain, acting as both symbol and instrument of resilience. Through it’s program of research and community outreach, it strengthens meaningful relationships between urban and environmental conditions, and social and cultural situations. - The project serves as threshold between the urban and riverine landscape. Platforms frame the experience of water as an element to coexist with, allowing safe observation from different perspectives and engagement through field research and park recreation on the ground plane. Terracing on the banks allow water to slowly return to the creek. A pedestrian bridge links urban dwellers to the creek Greenbelt, connecting neighborhoods with each other and with nature. - Vertical Studio IV [RISK Studio] with Professor Matt Fajkus [@mf.architecture ] at the UTSOA.

Thinking fondly back to the days of drawing in the Badlands with @theriddlemermaid and @hannahlisesimonson as part of an @utsoa Historic Preservation studio with @badlandsnps and @wildflowercenter
Gulf Coast Design Lab [@gulf.coast.designlab ], leading the Public Interest Design program at the @UTSOA has partnered our Summer Studio to work with Camp Aranzazu, a therapeutic recreational camp located in Rockport, Texas for children and adults with special needs and chronic illnesses. - As a Design/Build studio, the focus of the project is to build a structure which will serve as an auxiliary pavilion to the climbing wall, zip-line and high ropes course at the beautiful campus, providing shade, equipment storage and an interactive space for children of various ages. - We are now on our third week of iterative design charettes which increasingly combine individual and sub-group designs into a universal design to be presented to the stakeholder. Above a few sketches and models testing ideas of what this special space could be. - Design Team: Elizabeth Matos [@liz.m.matos ], Elijah Montez [@awelldressedpickle ] and Diego Zubizarreta Otero [@diegzoo ]

Students presenting their ideas before all teams converge to an integrated design. Outside critiques and past participants of the program are invited to share their experiences So far a lot of consideration is put into the economy of the elements, prevailing winds, materiality and constructibility. #utsoa #askutsoa #design #process #studentproject #fun #drive #rockport #hookem #architecture #camp #summer #review #draw #critday #beautiful #morning
@sarahrousey finished her Residency plus 6 months @allied_works ! Congratulations! #utsoaprp #texasarchitecture #utsoa
Gulf Coast Design Lab’s [@gulf.coast.designlab ] first visit to Camp Aranzazu [ @camparanzazu ], last weekend! We had the pleasure of touring their beautiful campus in Rockport and meeting/interacting with some of the current summer activity leaders and full-time staff! We’ve now been designing as a team for a week, integrating all the great feedback and ideas we’ve gathered from our engagement activities with the stakeholders. We’ve come up with a few ideas of what we think will be an exciting and thoughtful shade structure, to take place around their climbing wall / high ropes course activity area! More coming soon. - #GulfCoastDesignLab #CampAranzazu #UTSOA #DesignBuild #PID #PublicInterestDesign #DesignForPeople #ArchitectureForPeople #Architecture #Design #Rockport #Texas

Paying homage to a past project located at Red Fish Point on Copano Bay. HIDE incorporates a palette of materials that will be allowed to weather, including wood, steel and concrete. Viewed from a distance, the horizontal wood slats that clad six of seven bays virtually disappear against the neighbouring brush line that separate the structure from the bay. ----------------------------- #designneverstops #utsoa #gulfcoastdesignlab #whatstartshere #design #build #architecture #archdaily #camparanzazu #hide #birdblind #utaustin #motivation #hustle #travel #study #student #studentproject #steel #construction #engineering #student #bestoftheday #picoftheday #smile #happy #blackandwhite #askutsoa #hookem #structure

“Design has a long history of taking risks. Through design, we create and experiment with strategies to interact with the uncertainty of the future. Mitigating the potential risks of the future can aid in the creation of shock-resistant, healthy, adaptable and regenerative communities – creating resilient design through diversity, foresight and experimentation.” Project brief for RISK Studio, with Professor Matt Fajkus [@mf.architecture ] - The proposed FLOOD Resilience Hub is sited at an active urban intersection, extending out to nearby neighborhoods as a center for research and education on flooding. A distinguished, yet approachable building, the hub also extends towards the adjacent creek, symbolizing resilience through the act of reclaimed inhabitation at the heart of a floodplain. - The spaces within the center provide safe and elevated shelter in times of critical floods, remaining easily accessible from the street level through an integrated driveway, part of the urban plaza. Past this threshold, a series of platforms frame the experience of water as an element to coexist with, allowing safe observation from different perspectives and engagement through field research and park recreation in habitable scenarios. - Graduate Design Vertical Studio IV, UT Austin School of Architecture.

UNCUT: Re-imagining the Face of Film. Toronto, Canada. ULI Hiles Student Design Competition 2018. - Film is a timeless artform that transforms a solidary experience into a collective feeling. It is one of few mediums with the power to unite all kinds of people. In the last 40 years, Toronto has become the backdrop for major film productions and the third largest screen-based production centre in North America. UNCUT will ensure that film continues to play an integral role in the changing history of Toronto. The future of film will be reimagined beyond the theatre walls and utilized to connect a complete community where anyone can learn, experience, and create. - Our proposal tied for First Place award among a total of 8 entries in the UT School of Architecture - Cogburn Family Foundation competition. - Team: Heberto Alanis (MBA) [@heberto_alanis ], Roshni Mahtani (M.Arch.I) [@roshnimahtani ], MaKayla Rutt (Team Leader, MID) [@makaylarutt ], Disha Sahu (CRP) [@disha.sahu08 ] and Diego Zubizarreta Otero (M.Arch.I) [@diegzoo ]
One of my favorite pastimes any time I’m around campus during the summer is go check out all the Design Excellence winners at @utsoa. It’s awesome coming back as an alumnus (and now architect) and see all the great work coming out a potential to change the world. • • • #utsoa #utaustin #hookem #architecture #goldsmith #design

The Marble Falls Boutique Hotel is a retreat in the Texas Hill Country, sited on the periphery of the town lake. The intent of the design was to create minimal visual impact on the site, allowing building and landscape to merge. A sinuous path from the reception invites users to enjoy a park-like setting, and wind down to the water, the suite entrances discretely revealing themselves to visitors, tucked under the ground. Once inside, the rooms open up to the waterfront, framing scenic views with the carefully positioned “bed pods”. - Graduate Vertical Studio III with Professor John Blood, at the UT Austin School of Architecture.
It’s the first day of orientation for the International Exchange Internship Program at the US/ICOMOS headquarters in DC. It was packed with so much great information from experts in the field of cultural heritage! #iep #iep2018 #USICOMOS #ICOMOS #HistoricPreservation #HeritageConservation #WorldHeritage #CulturalExchange #utsoa #WhatHappensHere
Paperweight uses the natural buoyancy and beauty of wood to create floating modular platforms that are reflective of Austin’s unique ecosystem and urban landscapes. Located near Austin’s new Central Library on Shoal Creek, the platforms provide a place to rest, relax and read along the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail. At the scale of a person, larger than a single bench but smaller than a home, the platforms provide a unique addition to the collective outdoor living. - Design project developed for Timber Technologies seminar, taught by Professor Ulrich Dangel at the UTSOA. Project team: @ysa.annette , @nvironmntcarol and @diegzoo.

Introducing Taller Dizeño [Dezign Workshop] a platform for my design work, ideas and processes. I’m Diego Zubizarreta Otero, a Venezuelan, architectural designer, and current graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. I’m really passionate about design and architecture, and hope to share work which will convey that and also hopefully provide interesting ideas and stimulate conversations. - This image is from my first graduate studio with Professor John Blood, where we were tasked with designing a boutique hotel. The mixed media perspective emphasizes the simplicity of the space and its materials, and the unique “bed pods” which look out towards scenic Marble Falls lake. The scene takes place at sunset, where low horizontal rays reach deep inside the spaces, washing down the textured surfaces that compose the spatial box. - #TallerDizeño #Architecture #Design #ArchitectureStudent #CritDay #MixedMedia #PerspectiveDrawing #UTSOA
A line in the landscape. This weekend we constructed the wall for our environmental education platform with not a single piece of lumber to spare! #utsoa #construction #architecture #askutsoa #imadethat #creatives #creativeclass
