Christopher J Money I first started my career path in architecture in 2013 where I attended SAIT Polytechnic in Calgary, Alberta and I completed a two year Architectural Technology Diploma. Through my two years at SAIT I developed strong skills in many computer programs from autocad to revit and numerous other skills as you will see on the following page. Upon graduating I took a gap year and worked before returning back to school in September 2015. I transfered to BCIT in Burnaby, BC where I studied for my Bachelors in Architectural Science. Through these two years at BCIT I developed a higher level of skill and knowledge towards architecture and design. Once I graduated with my Bachelors of Architectural Science I went on to work at DIALOG in Vancouver, BC and Calgary, Alberta. Through my time at DIALOG I have had the opportunity to work on multiple projects across three provinces in Canada. The projects have been varied, working on three LRT stations in Toronto, Ontario, three multi-residential towers, two of the towers are in Vancouver, BC and one in Calgary, Alberta. I am now working in the DIALOG Calgary office so far my projects have included working on a commercial building for HSBC in Edmonton, Alberta and now most recently, I am working on a high security project for the Government of Canada. When I am not working I am usually behind a camera taking photos of the great outdoors and traveling the globe.

FCF AQUATIC CENTRE
FINAL THESIS PROJECT
“FCF AQUATIC CENTRE” BCIT 2017
The False Creek Flats Aquatic Centre is a competition pool focused on swimmers overall health. The history of how water once ran through “The Flats” helps to tie this Aquatic Centre into its site, as well as keeping with the industrial history. Close proximity to downtown Vancouver allows the Aquatic Centre to be a community hub, not only for the local residence but for the Greater Vancouver Area. The building has a large focus on competitive excellence and training of swimmers. The structure’s main feature is the undulating roof comprising of glulam beams sitting on steel beams, supported by a hybrid concrete and steel columns. The main vision is to help connect communities in a pool that is as close to chemical free as possible.
E 1S T AV
“The Flats” is set to become an arts and tech oriented enclave of students, restaurants, galleries, breweries, coffee shops and limited residential housing. Our class was divided into two separate groups of 12 to develop a new master plan for a section of “The Flats”. The main driver behind our master plan was to create a central plaza which each site could have access to. Having the aquatic centre located in the plaza made it easier access for the community to use and witness the swimming competitions.
During the programing of the Aquatic Centre, I decided to lower the pool five meters below grade for two reasons, the first being to reconnect to the history of the site and how water once ran through. The other being to allow for pedestrians to see the movement of people below, in and out of the pool.
The undulating roof is meant to be a representation of the pool below. The skylights represent â€œairâ€? for when a swimmer comes up and the dips in the roof are for when a swimmer is under water. The glulam beams are running in the direction of the plaza to represent circulation from the plaza, whereas the steel beams represent the circulation of people in the swimming pool.

FINAL THESIS PROJECT
“VCA CENTRE” BCIT 2016
The main design idea for this project was to bring the outdoors in. Due to the small amount of green space in the Mount Pleasant area, each studio has a framed view inwards showcasing the unique visual and circulation connections. The framed views towards the bamboo gardens that grow from the 2nd floor up towards the 4th, as well as the green wall, allows for a safe place for artists of different disciplinarians to be inspired by nature and the surrounding elements. This also enables collaboration as the circulation plan allows for people to bump into each other as they travel towards the exhibit. Blurring the lines between the indoor and outdoor environment will give young artists an experience like they’ve never had to provoke creativity, collaboration and connecting with nature.

CONNECTION TO NATURE
The objective of this project was that in groups of four we were given five days to design a pavilion for the Powell Street Festival. The design was meant to reflect Japanese heritage & to be interactive for both adults and children. We also worked with German students as part of the workshop. Through the display of timeless JapaneseCanadian art, the community will be inspired to explore and create their own artistic masterpieces. This Japanese inspired pavilion is made from multiple wood and steel gateways that encourage people to walk through and enjoy classic or modern Japanese art pieces created by artists living in the Strathcona and Greater Vancouver area. There are two main areas in this design, one side is enclosed with art displays and typical Japanese style panels with a tatami pattern that frames a multitude of views, such as the stage. The other side has an open concept where kids and adults can indulge in painting in a creative and community building atmosphere.

FINAL THESIS PROJECT
“EV REDEVELOPMENT” SAIT 2014
The East Village redevelopment project is a revitalization and reimaging of one of Calgary’s oldest and most central districts. The goal was to create a medium density multiresidential tower, that would help to create a sense of community, encourage pedestrian traffic and the use of outdoor amenities. All of which are a vital part of a healthy life style.
