2545 Dennis St. APT 2103 Cincinnati, OH 45219 Emily Pietrantone(440) 667 - 9143 pietraey@mail.uc.eduABOUT ME I am a third year at the University of Cincinnati and this is my second year in Urban Planning. I originally came to the University of Cincinnati to study Civil Engineering but I have found my true passion for Urban Planning. I grew up in a small suburb about 30 minutes east of Cleveland. In high school, I attended a college preparatory program called Excel TECC where I was in the CADD (Computer Aided-Drafted Design) program. While I was in this program I fell in love with drafting and data analysis.EDUCATION University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati OH B.S. in Urban Planning Minor in Real Estate Certificate in Professional Communication Mayfield High School, Mayfield Heights OH Diploma Excel TECC CADD Engineering Technology, Mayfield Heights OH Diploma May 2023May 2017 May 2017EXPERIENCEResidential Education and Development University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati OH 2017 – Present Resident Advisor and Desk Assistant I hope to continue my education by •Prepared packages for students to retrieve in a timely manner pursuing a Master’s in Community •Assisted residents with lock-outs and maintenance requests Planning through the University of •Transition residents into college smoothly Cincinnati.

MYT is a theater involving students from various schools and ages. At MYT I played small roles in many shows and had lead roles in the shows a Midsummer Nights Dream and Our Town. As I got older, I became involved with my high school’s drama department. After playing an ensemble role in Tarzan the Musical, I became involved with stage management and technical work. Sports Although I am not a college athlete, I do enjoy playing sports in my spare time. During my childhood, I played softball, hockey, tennis and was a member of my local swim team.3CollegeTable of ContentsYear One: Spring 2019 Analysis of Over-The-Rhine Pages 6-11 Title Page Page 6 Introduction Page 7 Impressions Map Page 8 Imageability Map Pages 9 Site Redevelopment Reccomendation Pages 10-11Year One: Fall 2018 Analysis of Saf ety on Campus Title Page Pages 13- 19 Page 12 Sensability Map with Examples Page 13 Infographic Page 14 Sketch of McMicken Commons Page 15 Sketches of Mainstreet and the Geology Tunnel Pages 16- 17 Sensibility Maps Pages 18 - 194Year One: Foundations/Basics Pages 20 -25 Title Page Page 20 ArcGIS Map Page 21 Building Footprint Map Page 22 Pathways Map Page 23 AutoCAD Maps Pages 24 - 25High School Title Page Page 26 Revit ‘She-Shed’ Page 27 Prosthetic Hand Project Pages 28 - 295COLLEGE YEAR 1AN ANALYSIS OF OVER-THE-RHINEMy second semester of Urban Planning focused on an area of Cincinnati known as Over-The-Rhine (OTR). OTR has been a key factor in the growth and decline of Cincinnati from the very beginning. Throughout the semester, analysis was been done to understand OverThe-Rhine deeply. As planners, we must understand the people of an area to create projects that impact those within it correctly. Each student picked a site to revitalize in the area. This map was created with ArcGIS using data from CAGIS.Return to Table of Contents7In order to help visualize my original perceptions of Over-The-Rhine an impressions map was made. The impressions map is meant to give a basic interpretation of the area. The focus is on what areas stood out or made an impression. This map was made by using ArcGIS and drawing over a printed map with markers.Return to Table of Contents 8Based on Kevin Lynch’s The Image of a City this map was created to help understand how observers look at Over-The-Rhine. Lynch had a five-year study that helped to understand how users understand surroundings in consistent and predictable ways. It was found that in each mental map created by an observer five elements where used: paths, edges, districts, nodes and landmarks. This map uses those five criteria to show OTR. This was created using ArcGIS and the Adobe Creative Cloud Programs.Return to Table of Contents9After analysis of the areas demographics I choose to take the Kroger site on Vine Street in OTR and redevelop it. At the time of this redevelopment plan the Kroger site was planned to be demolished and turned into a parking lot. The OTR Kroger is a vital food supply for the population in OTR and it should be replaced with something that will help fill the gap that will be created by it being removed. This project focused on accessibility and neighborhood feel. By keeping the building facĂŁde the same as those on the street and moving the building forward, the building fits better than a typical new build. The top image shows the existing Kroger site and the bottom image shows the apartment building/shop that would replace it. The apartment would be affordable housing options and the bottom level would create room for shops that would supply similar items to the Kroger that was being removed. 1012’40’The top image shows the original elevation of the Kroger site. Where the bottom image shows the elevation of the rest of the street. In order to fit both images on the page, they are not in the same scale. But, it is still shown how drastically different the Kroger site’s elevation is compared to the rest of the street. The proposed redevelopment plan moved the building forward in order to keep the same elevation as the rest of the street. This helped increase uniformity on the street and allowed for a better feel of the street. These were created in AutoCAD and then edited in the Adobe Creative Cloud programs.79’12’40’12’Return to Table of Contents 11COLLEGE YEAR 1AN ANALYSIS OF SAFETY ON CAMPUSThroughout my first semester at DAAP I worked on a project surrounding the idea of safety on campus. This graphic use colors dark red-brown, tan and light blue to show various levels of safety.With the dark red-brown indicating where someone would feel the least safe and the light blue indicating where someone PLAN Emily Pietrantone would1011 feel the safest. Each Shilpa Mehta October 12 2018 sketch was used to represent examples of safe and unsafe spaces on campus.University of Cincinnat Sensability Map: SafetyMany factors can make a person feel safe. Wether it be how far they can see, the amount of traffic or the light in a place. By using a mix of dark red brown and blue clear where people feel the most safe on campus.Legend Most Safe050100200Least SReturn to Table of Contents 13In order to determine what can make a space feel more or less safe, I focused on the idea of encloser. Using the same coloring as the last page with dark red-brown being the least safe and light blue being the safest. As this infographic shows, the more enclosed space is the more uncomfortable a space will feel. This comes from the natural human desire to want to be aware of your surroundings.Return to Table of Contents 14In this project, I used three different sketches to represent spaces on campus of varying levels of safety. This first sketch is of McMicken commons which is one of the most open spaces on campus. Additionally, there is no enclosure from the top which would further limit someone’s viewshed. Furthermore, the space is large but is not too large where someone would be unable to see someone in the distance.Return to Table of Contents 15The second sketch that was used was this one of Mainstreet. Although Mainstreet is often frequented by people, the space can limit one’s viewshed. Not only is the viewshed limited by buildings but it is also limited by the enclosures the buildings create. Additionally, pedestrian traffic is often very heavy. This can make a large space feel crowded and make one feel uncomfortable.Return to Table of Contents 16The third and final sketch that was used is this one of the Geology Tunnel. The Geology Tunnel is very dark and secluded making anyone who enters feel extremely unsafe. Despite just being dark the space is not very large and is also enclosed by the top. This space is extremely enclosed which limits the viewshed of anyone who enters.Return to Table of Contents 17Continuing with the project on safety, I created two sensibility maps to show safety. The first (right) is a hand-drawn map using the same color scale as the previous projects. With the red-brown being the least safe and the light blue representing the safest part of campus.Return to Table of Contents 18The second sensibility map was created using Adobe Illustrator. In this map, each viewshed on campus was drawn. The more the viewsheds overlap, the safer the area would be. So, the darker red indicates the safest areas on campus where the light pink is the least safe space.Safety agree t they fe that fee the dar points overlap In thes unsafe. could b not hav of tree area.Return to Table of Contents 19COLLEGE YEAR 1 FOUNDATIONS/BASICSThis project was my first use of the program ArcGIS. This map was created by using CODAS to generate data of the University of Cincinnati campus. Each layer had to be manipulated in order for a clear reading of the map. By changing line widths and color the map became much clearer.Return to Table of Contents 21This is a hand drawn figure-ground map of the University of Cincinnati. This map was created by using the ArcGIS map that was generated and shown on the previous page. This map was created by tracing the ArcGIS map with rulers and other precision tools.Return to Table of Contents 22This is a hand drawn pathways map of the University of Cincinnati. Each different type of pathway is represented by different symbology as shown in the legend. A ‘shared pathway’ is a pathway that is shared between pedestrians and automobiles.Return to Table of Contents 23In AutoCAD, two maps were generated. This map is a figure-ground map of the University of Cincinnati. In this map, white was used to represent the buildings and black was used to represent the foreground. By making this color choice the buildings stand out less and the map is overall harder to read than a black on white map.Return to Table of Contents 24In AutoCAD, two maps were generated. The second map is a figure-ground map of the University of Cincinnati. In this map, black was used to represent the buildings and white was used to represent the foreground. By making this color choice the buildings stand out more and the map is overall easier to read than a white on black map.Return to Table of Contents 25HIGH SCHOOLFOUNDATIONAL WORK IN REVIT, AUTOCAD AND SOLIDWORKSDuring my time at Excel TECC CADD, I also learned several programs including Revit. This page shows my semester final of my senior year in the program. The project was to create a ‘man-cave’ or ‘she-shed’ and include everything we would like in one. The class was given restrictions including how large it could be and a few minimum interior requirements. Since I am always working on something and I love to cook, I made sure mine had a small business nook and a full kitchen.Return to Table of Contents 27Before coming to the University of Cincinnati I was apart of a postsecondary program at my high school called Excel TECC CADD. This program focused on Engineering and Architecture. While I was in this program I had the opportunity to create a prosthetic hand for a recipient in my neighborhood. The hand is completely 3-D printed and works with the bending of the wrist. My recipient Manny lives in a neighboring city to my hometown and was 10 years old at the time of the creation of his hand. He was born without fully developed hand and this hand allowed him to participate in things he always wanted to.Return to Table of Contents 28After Manny was awarded with his hand, the design of the hand went to several competitions and even to Germany. The design was awarded first place at the SkillsUSA Ohio competition and then went on to win fifth place at the national SkillsUSA competition. This photo shows former President Obama and the former Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel seeing the hand at the largest trade fair in the world that is hosted in Munich, Germany every year. The created of the 3-D printer that was used to make the hand (MakerGear) took the hand to Germany to show how 3-D printers can impact others.Return to Table of Contents 29
