This proposal for the redevelopment of a large “superblock” on historic Rideau Street in Ottawa, seeks to revitalize an area of the city’s Lowertown-Upper Rideau neighbourhood, a derelict stretch of roughly one mile featuring a glut of small-unsuccessful outlets and pedestrian-unfriendly impregnable concrete towers. The site is also symbolic as it mediates two modern urban conditions, the bustling avenue (Rideau Street), and a sleepy neighbourhood with low-density and winding streets (Beausoleil Drive).

SITE PLAN DESIGN WITH TYLER FISSEL

ARCHITECTURE PORTFOLIO

The proposal addresses such issues as Rideau Street retail renewal, densification, and the opening up of a large site to pedestrians and cyclists. The site, in a grand gesture, is sliced in its centre, splitting building masses and creating a wide-pedestrian-only causeway, linking Rideau Street and Beausoleil Drive.

BENOIT MARANDA

The site features various styles of dwellings, designed to accommodate a spectrum of demographics. The project actively targets those demographics that currently prefer to remain in the suburbs, introducing such features as ample outdoor place space, at least double orientation in all units, and townhouse designs which introduce the practicalities of suburban dwelling in an urban setting.

A “bar mass” is affixed onto the site, wrapping around Rideau, Augusta and Chapel Streets.

The mass is transcected by a series of parallel openings, creating the dividing cross-site components of circulation

A more expressive for is introduced into the interior space of the site

The central element of the design is a slender tower of tinted glass, which is placed atop the central housing form of the site. The structure is organized around a point-core system, with two elevators and two means of egress servicing all 33 floors. In order to break up the mass of the tower, a two-level platform serving as elevated green space and party spaces with fully glazed windows and 360 degree views was placed on the 7th floor, creating a dramatic interlude between the architectural language of the podium levels and the tower.

WORK FROM EXCHANGE TO WESTMINSTER UNIVERSITY - LONDON

11

The catalysts for the work undertaken as part of the Third Year academic exchange program to London’s Westminster University was emphasis on historical precedent and extensive research on the social and structural constructs of the buildings of the Truman Brewery Complex in the Spitafields area of East London, which form the nucleus of Brick Lane’s trendy shopping and entertainment district. The area was once home to London’s largest concentration of breweries, and also boasted large factories, which have now been converted into multipurpose spaces. The programme for the project is a series of archival spaces, which both introduce and document the rich history of Brick Lane and the Truman Brewery. These spaces translate into a series of multifunctional hybrids suspended above a large paved court known as Dray Walk Plaza. The structure, a forest of steel beams, concrete pillars and tensile cables introduce on the site a structure that is neither permanent, nor temporary, and plays upon many aspects of the site, such as the connection of various buildings through overhead bridges and the operable nature of street vendor stalls. This formless building connotes the decrepit yet glorified nature of Brick Lane as well as the versatility and transformability of its spaces.

Ottawa, like many cities in the modern period, experienced between 1965 and 1975 a massive change in urban identity, with the emergence of large housing towers, taking the form of large complexes where clusters of identical, domineering blockmasses sporadically mushroomed in lowdensity, near-urban and suburban fabrics. Such towers have now decayed and face a future of assured demolition if the are not immediately addressed as pieces of architecture and urban planning in need of rehabilitation. Visionary ideals of the cultures created by these “towers in the park” were once rich and promising, with their vast, expansive lawns and views on rivers and parkways. The approach for this renewal project for a large neighbourhood in Ottawa’s West End is to reintroduce these ideals in an effort to conserve the identity of the tower, whilst mixing them with new strategies for urban planning and transit. // The project is divided into two sections. The first (pages 19-20-21) focuses on master planning and traffic/mass transit studies. All work on these pages consisted of a joint efforts between members of the group. The second (pages 22-23-24) focuses on a specific site, the plaza. The design put forward for this site was solely designed by the applicant.

DATE: February 2011

Canadian Tundra

The project is located within an imaginary landscape born out of the 1957 Jean Paul Lemieux painting, Marine. Depicting an austere, turbulent seascape, through which a boat attempts to navigate, and a sprawling, barren beach, the painting recalls the tranquil expanses of the great Canadian north, surrounded by the menacing vastness of the sea. The pianist, for whom the project is built, uses this primitive, yet elegant landscape as inspiration for composition. The focus of the design is the large studio and concert space, articulated as a volume protruding out into the water, offering the view in Lemieux’s painting. Immediately adjacent to the studio space is a square glass “box”, which serves as the entrance to the complex from the passerelle, and the mediating negative space between the Studio and the House. The house is on two levels, and is carved into the abrupt terrain, giving it the appearance of being part of the bluff.

This work undertaken as part of the Casa Da Musica study and analysis group whilst on academic exchange in London, UK sought to showcase the inherent languages hidden within fragments, images, drawings, notes, photographs and residual pieces of various analysis processes of disaggregation following the visit of OMA’s Casa Da Musica concert hall in Porto, Portugal.

Rem Koolhaas treats the form of the building as “the organization of issues of symbolism”. The Sagmeister company, charged with the elaboration of a logo for the building refers to this as a comprehensive identity through form

The body of work that results from such processes, deliberately discredit the subtle acquisition of knowledge and perception through various medias, displaying only the finished product, overcharged with the results of everything that has been learned, studied, and researched. Rather than an analysis on the building itself, this series of sheets attempt to document, group and organize, in the form of catalogued sheets, the various aspects of design, architecture, light, sound and context that were studied by the group, and the forgotten fragments that were together integral to the analysis.

The diagram is an attempt at an understanding of the Casa as a cannon of themes and subjects, in regards to it’s pertinence with the both study of the design proper, as well as its implications with the advent of Tactile Studio projects. 17 points of archive were identified, all of which contain artefacts (picture, diagram, drawing, or compilation thereof) of study. 01

The Laurier Concert Hall and Music Academy introduces a variety of programmes for the promotion of musical arts and academia. Featuring prominently in the architectural resolution for the project is the small size of the site tightly fitted between an existing mid-rise commercial building and the scarcely used First Baptist Church. In order to revitalize the church, its western wall will be demolished to allow for the concert space and library to incorporate the main space of the church.

The language of the church is articulated throughout the design. The long narrow spaces of the library and the concert hall introduce a new ‘nave’ to the overall plan, and intersect with the church, which becomes the transept and is left largely undisturbed. This new form is anchored at one end by a glass courtyard, and at the other by a tall apsial window, peering through the wall of the church onto Elgin Street. The language of the church is further continued in the reading rooms, displayed as chapels, and the diagonally-strapped coffered ceiling extending from the church in the form of skylights through the library’s ceiling.

Adapted from the traditional understanding of a performance theatre, Lustre is an experiential space designed for the telling of the Russian Fable Vasilisa the Beautiful. The project called for the creation of a performance space which would be demountable and compactable into determined dimensions. The approach for the performance was the recreation of the forest through which Vasilisa travels in the tale. The thick darkness between the trees was abstracted to the perforation of a large canopy with one thousand holes, through which lights of various colour, height and placement offer the manipulation of infinite projection patterns onto the floor. The space under this canopy places the viewer within the setting of the story, as opposed to before it. The theatre no longer displays its story, but rather engages it with the audience.

The project called for the design of an 800 square foot cottage on a piece had previously been a timber sales yard and as thus was largely barren and deforested. The site is adjacent to a small, manmade lake. The client had a vision for a small vacation home within the raw landscape, using materials such as concrete and washed wood against a backdrop of tall pine trees. The design for the project is a one-level structure with full basement, around which is placed extensive decking for maximum exterior enjoyment. The low-slope roof is designed with a large overhang and the living room and bedroom are pierced with large curtain walls. The orientation of the cottage places views on the small lake, and the mountains in the western distance. The project is meant to appear as a small introduction of modernity within a largely primitive landscape.

The C.Rise Research Project was a joint venture between Carleton University’s Architecture and Engineering departments, with the goal of building a state of the art research facility on the University Campus which would study energy efficiency and conservation strategies for residential applications. The facility, taking the form of a standard Canadian pitched house, seeks to combine passive solar heating with a Vacuum Insulated Panels. In order to complement the experimental nature of the C-Rise house, the building envelope for the project was conceived as a flexible and easily removable skin, composed of units of reclaimed wood strapping, spaced apart to express horizontality. These units, of a single standardized shape, are hung onto steel Z-girts, which are in turn fastened to the structure through Cascadia Fiberglass Rainscreen thermal spacers. This allows for a generous cavity between the envelope and the structure of the building, where various exercises in insulation and passive solar heat gain can be conducted.
