I seek to design innovative solutions using a combination of rigid logic and free flowing creativity. Thank you for your interest in my work!

OBJECTS IN A FIELD Project: Studio | Fall 2015 Location: Cambridge, Ontario Type: Mixed-Use Objects in a Field is a performance arts centre and housing complex that addresses ideas of public and private space through programs of observance and performance. Located on a sloping, triangular site, the project creates an artificial ground plane with pedestrian access. Numerous views are granted into program spaces that rise up through the plane. As people observe the performances below, they themselves become a performance of public life, observed from the private units above. On the ground floor, the programmed areas are located throughout the building as seemingly free objects wrapped by circulation space. These spaces include a formal theatre, multipurpose hall, dance studio, gallery, cafe, bar, exterior courtyard, information desk, and private practice rooms. Many of these spaces are double height, as they push up through the ground plane and support the housing above. Housing units are compact, but comfortable, providing generous private work space for every inhabitant. Living areas have been removed from the private unit and are rather shared between all residents as large, stepped rooms that can be easily adapted into performance spaces. The entire building is wrapped in a metal screen that both regulates light and allows public life on the street to observe glimpses of interior activity.
LODGE | DISLODGE Project: Studio | Summer 2016 Location: French River, Ontario Type: Research Facility Lodge | Dislodge is a water research facility and dwelling place focused on integration with its context: the Canadian Shield. The project is situated on the intersection between two contrasting water conditions, a quiet bay and a flowing river, as well as two different land conditions, a dense forest and a fragile peninsula. The facility’s design explores architecture’s ability to relate to landscape through two contrasting modes: embedding within, and rising above. The project’s ground floor lodges itself in the landscape’s solid rock foundation. The lower level relates to its immediate conditions of water and stone programmatically as well as materially, containing wet labs, boat docks, and a sauna all carved out of the landscape and constructed out of heavy concrete. In contrast, the upper level dislodges, and floats above the landscape, drawing inspiration from the adjacent forest. Containing the common living areas as well as private rooms, this lighter portion of the project utilizes wood frame construction and a charred cedar cladding. Volumes are intentionally arranged to frame specific views of unique conditions in the surrounding landscape.
EXTENSION Project: Studio | Fall 2015 Location: Cambridge, Ontario Type: Installation Collaborators: Joshua Giovinazzo, Mayuri Paranthahan, Steven Lin, Levi Vanweerdan Extension is an inflatable programmatic transformation of a standard domestic space: the garage. Garages are typically only used for storage, cars or otherwise, but the flexible space is often associated with creative endeavours as well. Artists, musicians, woodworkers, etc. utilize the garage as a studio. After working from home, however, these creators typically have to leave the domestic environment to exhibit their work. Extension allows the work space itself to be easily adapted into an exhibition or performance space. With the garage door down, the project can be rolled up and easily stored to allow for a private, interior work space. With the garage door up, the inflatable arch can be rolled out and inflated in minutes to create an extension of the garage and facilitate social gathering. The space provides room for a small scale gallery, concert hall, or various other programs. Extensionâ€™s semi-transparent material blurs the line between private domestic space and the public street front. The project utilizes the garageâ€™s already expansive threshold, reaching out to the sidewalk to attract and draw in pedestrian traffic.
RE:CYCLE Project: SSEF Competition | 2015 Location: Undefined Type: Seating Shelter Collaborator: Nathanael Scheffler Produced for the 2015 SSEF Architecture Competition, Re:Cycle reuses scrap metal and waste material from the automobile industry to promote green transportation. Steel is repurposed into a kit of parts that can be easily assembled into modular bike storage and seating shelters. The structure can be arranged in many different forms, allowing it to become bus shelters, park benches, pavilions, and more. Ease of assembly and modularity allows the structure to be easily maintained as well as recycled over time, as pieces can be added or subtracted from any given location to adapt to changing needs.
MORYIMA & TESHIMA Project: Professional Work | Fall 2016 Location: Various Type: Post-Secondary Institutional During my time at Moriyama & Teshima Architects in Toronto, Ontario, I served as an integral team member on various post-secondary institutional projects ranging from preliminary study to design development. One particular project focused on the development of a new student learning centre on the University of British Columbiaâ€™s Okanagan campus. My role on the project included conducting exterior expression studies, organizing programmatic spaces, and producing graphic material and diagrams for both study and presentation. Another project involved the preliminary study of a food services renovation and expansion within an existing brutalist building. During the study I investigated numerous organizational schemes focusing on resolving problematic circulation as well as helped to develop the formal and material treatment of the interior renovation and exterior expansion. Throughout the project I played a key role in coordination with consultants, development of the overall scheme, and production of the final presentation package.

PHOTOGRAPHY Project: Various | 2011-2017 Location: Various The following explorations in digital photography express my interest in capturing transient experiences as lasting images. I am fascinated by how light, color, and composition can convey memory, motion, and mood.
