Columbus, Ohio


I am a designer for Burgess & Niple, Inc. I started as an intern in 2006 while I was attending Ohio State University. After graduation I was hired on full time. The company is an Engineering/Architecture firm. B&N was established in 1912 in Columbus, Ohio. Since then, we have served thousands of clients in the U.S. and abroad, including government agencies, military organizations, colleges and universities, and a wide variety of private companies. On the most fundamental level, our job is responding to clients and translating their visions into structures and infrastructures that work in today and long into the future. We are innovative problem solvers with extensive resources and an award-winning track record.

Over the past 15 years, downtown Charlottesville, Virginia has experienced an ongoing renaissance. New businesses, restaurants, theaters and residences abound in renovated buildings and new developments alike. However, two full city blocks lie underutilized just one block south of Charlottesville is renowned pedestrian mall. This site, currently used for parking, hosts the popular Charlottesville City Market on spring and summer weekends and is widely regarded as the most important underdeveloped site in the city.
Responding to a public call to craft a vision for the future of the site, the City of Charlottesville sponsored MARKET VALUE, a design ideas competition that will help Charlottesville proactively investigate and establish the best alternatives for development. Directed by the City of Charlottesville in partnership with the Charlottesville Community Design Center and AIA Central Virginia, MARKET VALUE sought out realistic, innovative models for mixed-use development - ones that not only yield financial returns for a future developer of the site, but also provide a return on investment to the public good by attending to issues of civic space, connectivity, affordable housing and green building.
