HA - LO Competition | Sukkahville | 2016 Design Exchange Rhino | VRay | AutoCad | Photoshop | Illustrator Team Member: Karen Fang

Commemorating the Sukkot holiday, HA - LO celebrates the fact that all existence is fragile by presenting as a “living” building, an interior space created without severing its connection to nature. Comprised of recycled paper tubes, the walls create an illusion of a growing forest or protective cave when densely packed together. Tubes of alternating lengths are inserted into the spaces between the ribs to allow light to permeate the Sukkah and thus alludes to God’s benevolent presence among those within.

Nudoru Academic | Design Studio I | Fall 2016 Jack Layton Ferry Terminal Rhino | VRay | Autocad | Photoshop | Illustrator Reflective of David Chang’s flair for the unconventional, Nudoru plays with the traditional ideology of Japanese noodle bars. The experience of communal dining anchored by the performance of chefs is fabricated through the emphasis of light and shifting verticality of the individual dining spaces. For the artistry of both the chef and the architect to shine, one must truly witness the restaurant from within.

Pixelate Design Initiative Luminato Festival 2016 The Hearn Generating Station Rhino | VRay| Autocad | Photoshop | Illustrator Team Members: Shengyu Cai, Tiffany Zhang, Gloria Zhou, Garbo Zhu

In an urban setting where space is limited, the future of the Hearn Generation Station and the Port Lands presents many opportunities to bring new life to the City of Toronto. Following the vision of local architect Anya Moryoussef, Pixelate responds to the ever-growing popularity of urban agricultural production. Taking advantage of the Hearn’s colossal spatial volume, the proposal populates the dense steel framing with farm plots with supporting programs of residential co-op and a marketplace transforms the space inot a self-sustaining community.

Academy of Distilling Arts Academic | Integration Studio I | Fall 2017 18 Trinity Street Revit | Rhino | AutoCad | Photoshop | Illustrator Rooted deeply in the history and stories of each and every process in the craft of distilling from the beginning product of alcohol to the site itself, these ideas revolve and are then anchored by the internal gem of the distillery. Through acting as the core of the building, the gem allows for the bridging of production and consumption of alcohol in an intimate educational and sensory experience for visitors all around.

Nova Design Initative | Nuit Blanche 2016 | 401 Richmond Fabrication and Assembly Team Originating from the natural phenomenon, Nova is made to appear as a dormant mass that momentarily showcases of light upon interaction with passers-by. As individuals make their way through, the lights would change colours and publse at increased rates depending on the proximity of the visitors. With the lights reflecting off parallel-running mirrors, the illusion of expansive space is created in a narrow passageway.

interject Design Initative | ShapeLab Design Challenge | King Street Transit Pilot Rhino | AutoCad | Photoshop | Illustrator designer With the birth of Toronto’s King Street Transit Pilot to improve the efficiency of moving people along one of the busiest surface transit route, niches of public space is created along the route. interject addresses the bleakness of the corridor situated in the heart of the city’s arts and cultural institutions. Playing with the changing of colour through movment, the installation acts as a node, a short break that reintroduces art with the everday lives of the public. As one journeys through the intervention, rising of wooden sticks mirror the language of the surrounding buildings while doubling as a forest sheltering one from the outside.
