  • 1. Amir Moshfeghi Landscape Architectural Porfolio 2015
  • 2. 0101 Master’s Project Thesis statement: Integrating the LDS Environmental Stewardship and Conservation statements, the ASLA Code of Professional and Environmental Ethics, and the Sustainable Sites Initiative 2.0 into the LDS temple landscape design guidelines can lead to a more sustainable Albuquerque, New Mexico temple design and retrofit concepts and model for new LDS developments and landscape design and management guide- lines. Project Overview: This critical analysis study and design takes the existing Albuquerque New Mexico LDS temple and attempts to reach a more sustain able solution for the sites challenges. This study investigates the problem roots with all phases of design, construction and maintenance. The proposed solutions are given as redesign as well as retrofit.
  • 3. The tables above are design program and elements resulted of the comparison study of Sustainable Site Initiatives(SITES) and LDS temple landscape design guidelines. This critical design study addresses both the redesign of the project as well as retrofitting the current state of the site for a more sustain- able landscape solution(number 1 refers to redesign and number 2 refers to retrofit.

  • 5. 0102Concept statement: "All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent." Thomas Jefferson During the dark age of Holocaust, people of good conscious risked their own life to rescue victims. Perhaps one thing that separate rescuers from bystanders was the fact that they did not stay silence and acted upon their feeling. The hope square is designed with the concept of elevate and reconnect. Sculptural metal trees stand in unity at the core of the design. The trees represent the saviors (one for every thousand brave individuals). Anchored to the ground, the trees rise up from dark waters, offering support to the platform (safety) above. The visitor starts the journey of remembrance in a forest of oaks. As the visitor move up the ramp, they are greeted with light and the powerful canopy of sculptural trees. An outlook in the center of the raised platform positions the viewer in front of the carved out space of the museum. From this point the visitor visually connects with history, and may honor and contemplate hope and bravery in one of the darkest times of history.

  • 8. 0103Concept statement: The concept of Sponge is born out of the regional characteristic of the New Orleans landscape formed by the Mississippi river, and also relates to the specific site. People driving over the elevated freeway I-90 and over the site may assume there is a solid space beneath. However this design changes the perception of space: a void both literally and conceptually. Formally, the sponge concept creates filtered spaces that reflect a dynamic bal- ance of both solid and void spaces. Moss was chosen as the main flora for the site, as it thrives in shady, moist environ- ments. The moss also acts as a sponge, absorbing traffic noise and pollution. Moss covered Bio-Baffles are designed to effi- ciently absorb the noise in multiple spacial directions while providing a soft , green ceiling to soften the concrete infrastructure of I-90. The MOSSissipi park is a destination for tourism and locals as well as a habitat for birds and beneficial insect of the region. MOSSissipi park will host musical, art and dance festivals. it provides amenities such as rest room, a coffee shop, market place , skate park and a rock climbing wall.

  • 9. Museum main building150' Diameter circular tube Elevator access Reflecting poll with fire flames Placement of bones 15' One Million Bones Primary Artists who produced and installed one million bones in various locations in the world bringing home their successful design element: one million bones. This project investigated an appropriate site and design for the bones to retire. Albuquerque Nuclear Museum was selected with concept of the funnel cloud and flames. The existing museum had not anything to do with human and cultural aspect of the nuclear as this would extend the museum concept and philosophy and the outcome of education of public of the nuclear weapon production and unsafe consequences. 0104 Museum of nuclear genocide (US - Albuquerque NM)
