01 Barn(E) The Electric Barn // 2016 URB PRK Competition Winner // Produced with Daniel Szymanski, Cody Jew, Ivan Au // Website: archisaurus.wordpress.com

Barn(E) is the winning design in the 2016 URB PRK design competition sponsored by CafÊ Mosaics in Edmonton, Alberta. It was installed along the parking lanes of Whyte Avenue, East of 109st during the months of July and August 2016. The space was used as a parklet space that also hosted a concert series once a week throughout the summer. The cladding was made of cedar wood stripped from a 90-year-old barn, all donated to Habitat for Humanity ReStore at the end of its lifecycle, creating an entirely sustainable design. The Edmonton Native Plant Group donated and maintained plants for the structure and reclaimed them at the end of the summer. Another feature of the parklet was an electric bike generator made by Jan Przysiezniak from the Edmonton Bicycle Commuter Society. The bike was used to charge the user’s phone, as well as power LED lights that were strung throughout the structure timed to light up for one hour a night.

The wooden slats rotate to achieve community involvement in both the process and final built space. Thus, the donation of the barn lumber was the starting point to the design.

a porosity gradient across the surface. Simultaneously, these allow for the LED lights to spill out of the structure and light up the area. The design opens into the operable spaces of Cafe Mosaics, and can be understood as reaching into the cafe.

Build System

Built off-site, the parklet required an extremely rigorous and documented build system that could be rapidly transported and erected. All wood cladding was labeled, and framing was disassembled as to separate into five pieces and able to be slotted into a transport truck.

Parametric Pluto Wall // 2016 Graphics II, University of Calgary // Featured in Inverse Magazine: https://tinyurl.com/j5rcsry // Produced with ten students // Critics: Jody James, Matthew Knapik Design Brief

Given an image of the surface of Pluto, the idea was to use parametric software tools of Grasshopper to digitally extract image data and fabricate a 8’ by 4’ wall panel using the logics of the image. When combined with the panels of neighboring wall panels, the image of the Pluto sunset should appear from the collective, yet disparate image extractions of all 5 teams.

Method

Point data was extracted from the image based on pixel differentiation and brightness. The Delaunay algorithm was used to generate triangulation from point data, which were then scaled and filleted. The final form was cut out of plywood on an industrial laser cutter. Finally sheets of PET-G plastic were melted through the frames and later mounted to the frames.
