MICHAEL GRAVES, FAIA RESUME Continued
Brisbane Civic and Community Center Master Plan, Brisbane, California Collaborating Lead Planner/Designer for the Brisbane Civic and Community Center Master Plan. The project included offices for city administration and public safety departments, City Council chambers, a community recreation center, and a free standing firehouse. MGA prepared three preliminary schemes for local community review and comment. The three schemes were intended to demonstrate different strategies for organizing the site, the buildings, and associated outdoor spaces and public entries. In all three schemes, the fire station was located at the apex of the triangular site because of the existing street pattern.
Olympics Media Village Commercial Center Master Plan, Athens, Greece Collaborating Lead Planner/Designer for the planning and design for the 2004 Olympic Media Center (called Stoa Olympica), a 1.5 million S.F. mixed-use facility in the Olympic Village with an iconic tower. Project contains 688,000 S.F. of retail/ entertainment facilities, 161,250 S.F. offices, and parking for 3400 cars designed for a site area of 483,750 S.F. Center of the “village-like” structure is a retail concourse on the first floor, restaurants and covered outdoor terraces for the views and breezes on the second floor and cinemas and another restaurant overlooking the Stadium on the third floor.
Cincinnati Riverfront Ballpark & Stadium Master Plan, Cincinnati, Ohio Collaborating Lead Planner/Designer for the Cincinnati Riverfront Ballpark &
Stadium Master Plan. The Concept Master Plan for a new Riverfront West Complex provides two independent sports facilities for baseball and football, integrated into a complex of public places including a park, plaza, and entertainment activities. The 45,000-seat ballpark has its own original, intimate character, with a contemporary rather than an ersatz historical Victorian image. To provide a football stadium specifically designed for the sport required removing the existing Riverfront stadium and replacing it with a new structure configured around the needs, traditions, and rules of the game. In this design, the elliptical stadium has seating closely arranged in a rectangular area around the football field.
