VISION OF SETTLEMENT CHURCHILL PARK HABITAT AutoCAD 2012/Rhino 4.0+Vray/PS+AI

Located within the 27-hectare Churchill Park in Cambridge, the Churchill Park Habitat is a suburban infill project whose design creates a space for higher-density suburban living while respecting the Park’s aesthetics. The Habitat comprises five large hollow spaces. Each space serves as a gathering area for residents and also allows for bicycle parking and other communal amenities. The design and geometry of the five spaces preserves the view of the park and its environs for residents and the public. A pathway connects all the Habitat’s spaces to form a communal walkway which is sheltered from rain and snow. Within the Habitat are 53 apartments of different sizes; five shared laundry areas; and a cafe and communal meeting point on the ground floor.

COLLECTOR’S HOUSE

VILLA METEORITE 2011-2012 Outstanding Design Work Award Displayed at Design at Riverside Gallery 2012 Sketchup 8+Vray/Photoshop

Located in Cambridge, Canada, ‘Villa Meteorite’ was designed with an astronomer in mind. The villa is situated on natural sloping terrain, and accordingly the layout incorporates a gentle ascent from east to west along the villa grounds. The concept of the villa is to allow its occupant, an astronomer and collector, to display collected meteorites in various courtyards, so as to capture their enigmatic beauty. The limestone cladding of the villa resembles geological layers built over millions of years, and the cor-ten steel used for the window frames mimics the outward appearance of meteorites. The alleyway allows occupants to travel between each courtyard, and observe the displayed meteorites amongst an austere setting of ground, walls and sky. The sparse design focuses one’s mind on the deep elegance of the sky and stars.

SSEF STEEL STRUCTURE COMPETITION

TENSILE MARKET In collaboration with: Anqi Zhang AutoCAD 2012/Rhino 4.0+Vray/PS The Tensile Market was designed to provide a community gathering area in the Waterloo Public Square. The Market is versatile enough to accommodate various activities, from a small farmer’s market to an art festival. Its modular and dismantlable components enable easy disassembly and reuse when needed. The Market’s skeleton is mainly composed of components welded from recycled industrial pipes. Compared to hollow steel, the large quantity and stiffness of recycled industrial pipes is ideal for a small, temporary structure. The tensile structure of the Market minimises the number of components to simplify construction and assembly. Diameter 2 cm 3.5 cm 6 cm

EXTRA SMALL SWIFTHAUS

In collaboration with: Danial Abad, Jack Kung, Ali Mohebali, Ryan Pagliaro AutoCAD 2012/Rhino 4.0+Vray/PS+AI

Designed as temporary accommodation on prairies, Swifthaus aims to be a sustainable and efficient dwelling. Its design emphasises easy assembly and maintenance. The house is made using prefab components, and is self-sustaining. It uses passive solar heating, photovoltaic panels which convert solar energy into electricity, windmill-driven plumbing, and an environmentally friendly septic system. The small interior space is visually enlarged by the house’s open design, and further extended by two decks placed on the east and west sides of the house. Swifthaus’s shading panels allow its occupants to modify the amount of light the interior receives, as desired depending on privacy and temperature requirements.

NONLINEAR PHYSICAL MODELING

TECTONIC EVOLUTION

Rhino 4.0/Rhino Monkey/Mylar Paper/Wood/Laser Engraving Machine

The study explores methods of tectonic translation of nonlinear solid or envelop. The process of building non-linear forms becomes meaningful, as it suggests methods of assembly, materials, and construction feasibility. Organic forms are generated and translated into tectonic language by computer. Various workflows are developed for different tectonic prototypes.
