8 RE-ENVISIONING BUGGERRU This project was completed during a two-week work- ACCESSIBILITÀ E CIRCOLAZIONE /ACCESSIBILITY AND CIRCULATION shop with predominantly Italian students and professors in Cagliari, Italy. The project asked us to analyze a small town called Buggerru which used to function as a mining town and became a popular beach once the industry moved out. Our analysis uncovered that the town has several problems: it has a port that does not function because the bad design has led to an accumulation of sand that doesn’t permit large vessels to pass; the town is unprotected from the sea and wind, which become extreme in the winter season; there is a large flux of population between summer and winter, when tourists and residents alike leave to move to protected towns inland; there are several historical buildings from the mining industry that have fallen in disrepair. Our analysis cumulated in a threefold design proposal: a proposal for a diffuse hotel to address the economic needs of the town, a proposal for a connection to the history of the town (it’s memory), and an architectural proposal for the underdeveloped waterfront of the town. I conducted a large portion of the analysis and produced the diagrams to present our findings.

Most of the roads in Buggerru run perpendicular to the waterfront, directly to the port, speaking to its importance in the formation of the city. One road runs parallel to the waterfront, servicing the port, beach, and camper areas.

There is very little communication between the main street, Via Roma, and the elevated highway which causes the city and its people to be divided due to lack of connections.


ATTIVITÀ ECONOMICHE /ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES

LUNGOMARE /WATERFRONT

Spaces that attract activity in Buggerru, creating a source of economic income. Ranking the activities from most popular to least popular shows us opportunities for improvement. All the spaces are concentrated on the waterfront.

This is an analysis of the points of interest in Buggerru, which define the civic centre of the city and give its “sense of place.” Many of these are historic buildings from the mining industry. It is evident that the space in front of the buildings defines the city’s relationship to the water because of the way that buildings face into it and roads lead to it.

However, the waterfront space has lost its character after the end of the mining industry and is now used for a boat yard, a soccer field, and a camper-ground. The character of these areas should be reconsidered in order to redefine the city’s relationship to the sea and improve the experience of the sea.

LUNGOMARE /WATERFRONT

DUALITĂ€ ESTATE-INVERNO /SUMMER-WINTER DUALITY

A comparison to Piazza Navona (and the dense development surrounding it) shows the scale of the waterfront spaces and the importance of subdividing them into smaller spaces.

The effect of the city is to expand in the summer, occupying the port and beach area during the day, and the piazzas in the evening. However, the area directly between the city and the beach is never occupied.


(CONT’D)

CAMERE URBANE /URBAN ROOMS

STRUTTURA DELLA CITTÀ /CITY STRUCTURE

In the winter, the city contracts, occupying only the social buildings along the main street, Via Roma. It is not possible to enjoy the sea in this season because it is too violent and dangerous.

The relationship between summer and winter spaces is that of urban rooms created by social buildings. It also shows one type of approach to creating social spaces for the public.

The city is built up on and around retaining walls which allow the streets and buildings to negotiate the steep topography.

PROPOSTA ECONOMICA /ECONOMIC PROPOSAL

PROPOSTA ECONOMICA /ECONOMIC PROPOSAL

Instead of building a large hotel to accomodate the tourist population in Buggerru, we propose a diffuse hotel, with the historical laveria as the reception center. In the diffuse hotel model residents in the town rent out their rooms to tourists. Instead of individual bread and breakfasts, a centralized organization system helps to keep track of available rooms.

We reconnect lower and upper Buggerru by way of a new park accessible through the laveria.

14 BATHS OF CARACALLA The Baths of Caracalla was a 1-week intensive design charrette completed with international students during my semester at the Waterloo campus in Rome. The project brief asked for a bus terminal on a site adjacent to the Baths to act as a dropoff point for tourists. The dropoff is expected to serve about 300 coach buses each day. The program also provided for amenities such as an information point, ticketing facility, and cafe as well as education program such as a projection room and exhibition space. It was important to establish an architectural relationship between the arrival of tourists by bus and the experience of touring the Baths. As well, it was important to respect the landscape on the site, which has been much documented by Romantic painters. I took on a leadership role within the project team, guiding team discussions, helping to produce a storyboard and assigning tasks within a team of 14 people.

0. The existing site is cut in half by a local road that runs through it. We decide to use the road as infrastructure and explore options for rationalizing private car traffic with bus traffic.

1. The chosen option cuts the road to restrict access it is no longer a throughway. The resulting continuous space mediates the transition between the city state (the arrival by bus) and a contemplative state (the archaeological landscape).

2. The shell of the building is created by pulling up the grade to insert program and create a continuity with the existing landscape. The building operates on the two axes of continuity of landscape and transition from city to archaeology.

3. We create a compression in the center so that the whole building acts as one long threshold between the idea of city and archaelogical landscape.

4. Organization of the interior program is inspired by the form of the ruins of the Baths – the separations of rooms and functions aren’t clearly bounded but suggested.

5. We introduce apertures into the roof of the building to communicate the relationship between the exterior and interior. Inspired by Roman cisterns, the openings allow the exterior to impose itself on the interior, acknowledge the passing of time and create a more contemplative environment.

The pop-up textile workshop focuses on bringing out and celebrating some of the many ethnic group that have settled along Queen Street. The street has long been a place where waves of immigrants have settled down. Over the years people have moved out and new people have moved in, shifting the cultural mix, but the process of immigrants moving out has been accelerated recently because of efforts to “gentrify” the area. This increases land values and discourages immigrant groups moving in, while encouraging large corporate presence and upper-scale living. The immigrant ethnic groups have a lot of fascinating culture to bring to Queen Street, and to share. I want to bring out this sharing aspect through the medium of craft. This map is a representation of the dominant mid-population groups. Working from the 2006 census, and 126 ethnic origin categories, the list was culled of ethnic groups with populations that would overwhelm the entire map. This left about 18 ethnic groups which were analyzed on a block-by-block basis, to find the top three populations in each block. In the first phase of the pop-up, pavilions are located along Queen Street wherever there’s a pattern of clustering of an ethnic group, or where there is a single culture which stands out. They are designed to fit in a parking spot on the street, working off the precedent of the Bixi bike racks. This allows it to be flexible – to be deployed anywhere on the street, with the possibility to be deployed again with each new census. In this phase, the pavilions can be a source of public outreach, as well as artisan space. The celebration of these different cultures and skills comes together during the second phase of the project at Nathan Phillips Square as a weekend festival. The pavilions help to activate the periphery and make it more inviting, as well as giving the pavilions a strong street presence to help draw people in. In this way they adress both the street and the square, tying the two despite the walkway’s divisionary quality. The public celebration which happens at Nathan Phillips is also in the midst of the homogenizing process of gentrification, as evidenced by the amount of corporate business presence in that area.

18 WIND AND CURRENT This project looks at the interaction between wind and water current forces, as observed from four strings hung from a bridge. With a partner, I recorded, mapped, and analyzed (extensively) the motion of the strings. One aspect of the analysis looks at modelling the velocities of several points on one of the string through time. The process (or “recipe”) for that process can be described as follows: For each time period starting at the second time period:

For each point in the time period:

1. Subtract the coordinates of the point at time=0 from the current point; this represents the speed and direction of the point as it moved from the first time period to the current time period i.e. its’ velocity

2. Draw the resulting point

3. Next (go to the next point)

4. Interpolate the curve between all the points representing velocity

Store the curve in an array

20 LARGE URBAN BUILDING The site for the 3A large urban building studio at College and Spadina in Toronto is a crossroads between the University of Toronto, Kensington Market, and an established night-life; it is easily accesible from two streetcar routes. Based on a study I did, I addressed the site with an idea of public space because this is something the area currently lacks. With the idea that this should be a public space, I organized all the public program for the building – including retail, performace, restaurant, art gallery, and cafe – so that it can be accessed from the outside, based on the fact that as soon as you put a set of doors somewhere, you create a boundary which privatizes space, and limits what can happen there. All my public program is accessible from the plaza, which is a space where things can happen spontaneously. Access to programmed space keeps the plaza activated throughout the day, from the cafe in the morning, to the performance hall at night. The plaza becomes an informal counterpart to the more formally structured program within: the stairs function as street furniture, a place to sit and observe the “performance” of street life; the blank wall of the adjacent building becomes a blank canvas for urban expression, whether graffiti, mural, or projection art.

24 WINDCATCHER A pavilion located for the hot humid climate of Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand. The design aims at providing a reprieve from the climate by means of extensive ventilation and protection from torrential tropical rains. The building faces into the prevailing wind, and is sited on a hill. Sliding screens at both ends of the pavilion provide the user with ventilation options, making for a more individualized experience. The main space of the pavilion is large and airy, to contrast with the closeness and stuffiness of the climate. The pavilion is a stopping place for hikers in the rainforest, and a destination in itself: one can relax, meditate, and think while appreciating the beauty of the rainforest.

26 HYPAR WAVE The hyperbolic paraboloid shape of the band shell is tilted slightly backwards, opening up to the audience. This versatile structure highlights the use of steel by creating a contrast between the heavy framing members and light, airy cables of the canopy. The canopy appears to float above, as a sail catching the wind. The framing members resemble cantilevers that are pulled together by a network of cables and round steel members. (Designed in a group of two.) The round steel piping, although straight, creates a gentle curve by through its arrangement, framing a view of the landscape. FROSTED

One of the design projects I worked on during my 8-month work term with Kasian was a retirement community. I was involved in coming up with design concepts and consequently diagramming the chosen scheme to communicate our design decisions. I also contibuted to developing floor plans and doing various studies requested by the client. I also helped to keep my team organized by summarizing important points from the design brief.

32 KASIAN - SHOPPING MALL + DESIGN CONCEPT

I also worked extensively on the Yuankai Shopping Mall in China during my 8-month work term with Kasian. I joined the team during the Design Development phase of the project. During this phase I was involved in finalizing the design of the building and diagramming the final scheme as a means of communicating with the client. I also helped to produce and develop construction drawings, including floor plans, sections, and details. In the end we issued two packages: a design package and a construction document package. setback property line While at Kasian I received Revit training.

34 INFERURBAN I had a unique work experience with InferUrban, who are not a team or architects, but a team of inventors. I helped them to illustrate their ideas for the workings of a patented method for their use in presentations with potential clients. Working with another student, I did extensive research on building types and categorization, as well as the implications that these have on urban planning issues. I then illustrated two of those building types extensively, and created a Prezi presentation which gives an overview of the invention. Most of the work that I did is confidential, having to do with the workings of the invention.

NEW MAIN PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY COLLECTOR 36 2.1.4 KASIAN - STATION DEVELOPMENT At Kasian, I was highly involved in the design and development phase of the Translink Faregate Project for 5 “SkyTrain” transit stations in the Metro Vancouver region. I became solely responsible for putting together the drawing package for one of those stations as well as helping out with others. I also produced a signage and wayfinding report, and an equipment phasing report for the project, and participated in both internal and external meetings. I learned a lot about construction drawings, working mainly in AutoCAD 2010.

38 SARGASSO FIELD Aug. 10-24, 2009, I participated in a workshop held by Philip Beesley Architect and CITA in Copenhagen. The workshop dealt with issues of interactivity and responsiveness in architecture, and explored sustainability in its construction methodology. I learned about digital fabrication, component design, electronics, kinetics, and behaviour scripting, and assisted in building and documenting the installation.


PARKIN ARCHITECTS 39 Proposed and developed an entrance facade design for a large hospital and mental health institution in Hamilton for a P3 competition. Organized room data sheets, room finishes matrix, and incoming files from contractors. Worked extensively between hand sketches, SketchUp, and AutoCAD to produce plans, sections, elevations, and perspectives for Orangeville County Courthouse (shown here) and the P3 competition.

44 CRAFT I have been crocheting since I was seven and have recently taught myself to knit as well. These are a couple examples of my more intricate work, to show that I can pay great attention to small details and am capable of making finely crafted objects. My most recent hobby is the making of chain maille. Each ring is opened and closed by hand to put it in its place. I enjoy working at a tight scale where I have to pay great attention to details.
