REFERENCE LETTER 1

During his time in our office, Callum worked on a diverse range of projects, both individual and in teams: -independent work on feasibility studies (notably housing) -a competition for collective housing in Pantin, France -models for a mixed-use project in Saint-Nazaire -models for a competition in Tours, France -drawings and diagrams related to the office portfolio

I had the opportunity to witness, firsthand, Callum’s thirst for knowledge and strong motivation. He was eager to participate in meetings and site visits, and readily accepted new tasks.

Callum was quick to learn and showed an important flexibility and eagerness to learn new methods and tools. In the four months of internship I observed a marked progress in technical skills. He showed great care in physical modelmaking and precision in drawing. Perhaps most importantly, Callum demonstrated a capacity for self-critique and professionalism; rare for an intern of his age, Callum self-edited and corrected documents without prompt. In receiving critique, he responded positively and integrated for future work. A delight to have in the office, Callum is extremely gregarious in nature and contributed greatly to the office environment. He was constantly borrowing books and magazines from the office library to continue developing his personal architectural culture. It was a pleasure to witness Callum’s professional development during training, and I am confident that he will have great success in his professional future. I recommend Callum for an internship in your firm, without hesitation. Best regards, Nicholas GILLILAND Architecte associé

CISC COMPETITION

BRIDGING THE ELEMENTS

Top 10 - Finalist

Located 20 miles outside of Bogota, Columbia, Tequendama Falls have recently developed a reputation as being contaminated. Although not harmful, the once-popular tourist destination is becoming increasingly obsolete. Bridging the Elements strives to revitalize the site - both ecologically and economically. Sitting at the peak of the cliffs, the structure funnels water through itself, before dispersing it around the lower platform. As the water passes under the upper level, it is run over a bed of moss, which aides in the removal of unwanted minerals. On the upper level, visitors have panoramic views of the surrounding cliffs and vegetation. Meanwhile, on the lower level, the glass floor and cascading walls of water emphasize the sheer verticality of the cliff face. The two levels provide visitors with vastly different experiences, each one catering to unique elements of nature.

OASIS RESEARCH STATION

OASIS RESEARCH STATION

Located on the eastern coast of Sicily, Oasis serves as a research station for the unique volcanic rock formations of Alcantara Geological Park. Our design, pictured right, capitalizes on the shade provided by the trees and gorge walls on the north and south sides. The walls act as a wind tunnel, optimizing cross ventilation throughout the space. These passive design strategies, combined with the photovoltaic panels on the roof, allow the building to achieve a net-zero environmental status. The building is divided into two distinct levels; on the top, the conditioned living quarters, on the bottom, a sheltered outdoor space. Perched 7m above the water level, the building allows people to comfortably pass underneath it, while providing the occupants with a distinctive vantage point.

RAGLAN STREET LIBRARY

RAGLAN STREET LIBRARY

Today’s library is more commonly used as a work or gathering space than solely as a book-accessing resource. By incorporating the index directly into the main circulation of the building, the Raglan Street Library strives to change that. The central core is encased in a ramp system - the index circulation wrapper - that snakes around the exterior of the building. In order to traverse the levels, patrons are encouraged to ascend through the ramps, therefore exposing them to the entire index. As one approaches the top floor, the gathering spaces become increasingly private, culminating in a row of single-occupancy study carrels. The basement of the building serves as a mini community centre for the vibrant St. Clair neighbourhood. On one side is a hacker space, ideal for increasing both digital and physical aptitude in the community; on the other side, is a transformable space that opens directly onto an excavated open-air courtyard.

ASCENSION

ASCENSION

Featured in 2018 Exemplary Student Project Exhibition

In a future where pollution renders the earth’s surface uninhabitable, humans are forced to burrow underground to survive. Subsequently, light becomes a rarity and is distributed on an infrastructural scale. Massive columns of artificial light are the only element that unite the three vertically-arrayed zones of the envisioned city. Within the bottom, buildings seem to grow rhizomatically from the light source, creating a careless and hectic urbanity narrowly focused on the resource of light. In the middle zone, a portion of the crust is preserved, dedicated to the public where people can derive some connection - menial as it may be - to a nature that once was. The uppermost layer, defined by a protective shell, encourages social activities, such as concerts or speeches. Through each zone of Ascension, it is the constant presence of light, or lack thereof, that continually redefines the city.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

In high school, during the second semester of Grade 11, I obtained a co-op placement at Perkins + Wills’ Dundas Office. After the semester finished, I was offered an oppurtunity to remain on the team as a paid summer student. Over the course of my six months with the firm, I was involved in solving minor design issues, marking up drawing sets, contextual 3D modelling and producing presentation drawings for clients. Other miscellaneous tasks included data tabulation, digital file management and the construction of a picnic table. 41 Stuart Street is a mixed-use condominium building located near Bayfront Park in Hamilton, ON. I was given a digital model of the proposed building on a blank topography and was responsible for modelling all the surrounding context and populating the 3D model. I then captured the following images, all of which were used asis in the client presentation.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Having achieved many industry firsts, ranging from completing the First LEED Gold Certified building under the Canada Green Building Council to constructing the largest net-zero facility in Canada, mcCallum Sather is at the forefront of the sustainability movement. I spent the majority of my time with the firm working on a project that converts the former Westinghouse Electric Corporation headquarters - which is now a heritage building - into modern, leasable office space. The project is targeting a net-zero designation. I was involved in various stages of the project. I drafted demo and construction plans for permit and tender, modelled the existing building in Revit, and assisted in the design of the proposed vestibule and washroom layouts. I also took site verification measurements, worked on RFP documents, corresponded with clients, and attended meetings - both internal and external. The following images and drawings are all from the aforementioned project. Internship, Jun-Sept 2017 Software: Revit, Adobe Indd, AutoCAD, BlueBeam Revu

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Atelier Tolila + Gilliland

I completed my first school sanctioned co-op term at Tolila + Gilliland Atelier d’Architecture, in Paris, France. Over my 4 months with the firm, I had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of tasks and projects. One of my tasks was constructing a hand-cut massing model for a new multi-building development in the coastal town of St. Nazaire, France. The model, pictured right, was used for both internal and external review. I was also in charge of creating and consolidating orthographic projections of all the firm’s projects for the publication of their upcoming book and website. The final plans, sections and axonometrics were then compiled into a set of posters to be used for an exhibition of the firms work, set to debut June 2018. Other miscellaneous tasks included early design development, creating and editing presentation renders and collages, conducting research and studies, building 1:1 detail mockups, and creating drawings and award submission documents.
