    WEEK 04 : OBJECT DESIGN - DYNAMIC KIOSK

    Jihee explored enhancing the programs for public interaction by creating engaging spaces with multiple functions.
    Her strategy is to use recycled wooden shutters as a unit to create a flexible structure. The unit is easily foldable and manipulated to create a variety of forms and can control lighting.

    WEEK 03 : SITE DESIGN - MULTI-FUNCTIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE

    Jihee focused on the area under the highway, designing both water collection landscapes and areas for public programming. Her landscape collects, filters, and distributes stormwater runoff from this stretch of the highway, using different types of applications so communities can reuse this water.

    WEEK 02 : URBAN DESIGN - MULTIFUNCTIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE

    Jihee proposed an ecological network using the highway as a new type of multifunctional infrastructure, utilizing surface streets, vacant lots, and buildings throughout the entire eco-district. She bundled storm water management and energy production within and around the elevated freeway, transforming the site into a hub of green public spaces and ecological infrastructure.

  • WEEK 1: REGIONAL CONTEXT

    WEEK 1: REGIONAL CONTEXT

    The first week of the Summer Program focused on inventory, analysis, and initial visioning for the Central Corridor. Working as pairs, the students examined the area’s natural and man-made systems to understand the dynamic forces that shape the Central Corridor and surrounding areas. Building off of the city’s planning department analysis, students studied systems including historic, cultural, transportation, infrastructure, public space typologies, urban grid, building massing, street typologies, and projected design potentials based on the findings.

“I’m currently a fifth-year student in the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) program at Iowa State University. Since I’m participating in a dual-degree program that Iowa State University conducts with Yeungnam University in South Korea, I entered Iowa State University’s 5-year program in the third year. In December 2012, I will graduate with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree from both universities.

Through two different academic backgrounds, internships and several design competitions, I learned about diverse urban situations and faced different challenges. These unique experiences made me very enthusiastic in

learning about green urban infrastructure and creating social spaces with aesthetic modern gestures.”
