96 buildings consisting of: 47 residential homes, three multi-family, one commercial center, three civic buildings, 32 multi-use buildings, a farm (six buildings) and a lodge (four buildings) were designed and modeled in Revit. I designed 81 of the buildings and modeled 67 in Revit.

The sheer size of our project, Red Bud, allows for a variety of uses as most of the Village of Berrien Springs would fit within its boundaries. Our group decided to divide the 250 acres into two 1/4 mile radius’; one, a traditional town center and the other, a highway influenced commercial center. We chose an agrarian philosophy that was inspired by the abundance of local agriculture and wineries. Our goal was to preserve agriculture, while curbing sprawls invasion of farm land, with a mixture of New Urbanism and agrarianism. The mixed-use town center with form-based codes coincides with the townships master plan and the commercial center would be a perfect anchor for the proposed sewer extension that will eventually cross US-31. 96 buildings consisting of: 47 residential homes, three multi-family, one commercial center, three civic buildings, 32 multi-use buildings, a farm (six buildings) and a lodge (four buildings) were designed and modeled in Revit—the balance of the project was done in Autocad, InDesign, and Photoshop*.

The 2011 Urban Design Studio focused on an urban design project for Berrien Springs, MI. The project required students to demonstrate a synthesis of historical and technical knowledge, formal skills, urban and civic sensibilities acquired in previous years of architectural education. The intent is to provide a municipality with a quantified master plan and vision for future growth, incorporating form-based codes verses traditional zoning. Twenty six students—six teams—completed the award winning project earning the 2012 CNU Charter Award, Grand Prize, in the academic division (fourth such award in the last five years). Students presented the completed project to the Village of Berrien Springs and Oronoko township.
