2019 Winter


ELIZABETH YEOH

Hello, My name is Elizabeth Yeoh, and I am a third-year undergraduate student at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. I view the human experience as an extension of its milieu. My approach to design aims to portray the discourse that exists between architecture and the physcial and social landscape. The following illustrates my academic and personal pursuits in exploring and representing space and time, and how we may occupy it. I look forward to being in touch!

May 7, 2018 To whom it may concern: I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Elizabeth Hwei Ming Yeoh who interned at STUDIO V Architecture from January to April of 2018. During her internship, Elizabeth worked with our team to design and develop a nearly millionsquare-foot mixed-use residential building in Jamaica, Queens. She assisted with the creation of 2D and 3D presentation materials and led our design efforts by testing out multiple massing and facade options for the ground-up building. Elizabeth has a very promising career ahead of her as an architect. She consistently demonstrated an aptitude for conceptual design and representational creativity, and enthusiastically tackled anything we asked of her. She is professional, dependable and displays a strong work ethic. At such an early stage in her career, it is impressive that she was able to make such an immediate impact on the project team and in the office. Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any further questions. Sincerely,

Michael Bevivino STUDIO V Architecture Senior Project Manager

KPMB Architects Location Toronto, ON, Canada Supervisor Bob Sims

My work experience at KPMB Architects consisted of concept studies of two cultural projects: St. Thomas’s Anglican Church and the Oakville Central Public Library. The former addressed the heritage building with interventions to improve religious functions and church-wide accessibility. The latter proposed the transformation of a 1970’s concrete building into a modern institution that houses thoughtfully programmed spaces. My responsibilities involved coordinating my time between both projects to develop plan and sectional studies. Concurrently, I performed extensive 3D modelling of the project interventions, the surrounding built environment and topography. I had a crucial role in the visualization of both buildings for client meetings and final feasibility studies. This involved the production of renderings and diagrams on a weekly basis to adhere to the fast-paced schedule. I strived to produce material that highlighted the key features of each project, with enough clarity and brevity for compilation into final report packages by the end of the internship.

STUDIO V Architecture Location New York, NY, USA Supervisor Michael Bevivino

During my 4-month internship at STUDIO V Architecture, I focused on the development of a mixed-use residential building in Jamaica, Queens. In response to the emerging and demographically diverse community of its locale, the project seeks to become a prominent hub - stringing together its complex neighborhood fabric. Key to the design is the revival of Jamaica’s identity as a place of economic opportunity. Working closely with the project team throughout the schematic design phase, I made meaningful contributions towards the design resolution. I collaborated with the other designers to develop a formal strategy for the building. I played a key role in designing and articulating the building’s language and facade. In doing so, I experimented with various graphic techniques to convey formal ideas. I assisted in the fabrication of a large-scale physical site model and produced a 3D-printed concept design. I studied the building’s massing to meet floor area and zoning requirements; proposing several options for the towers and plinth. In later development, I produced corresponding renders and floor plans for presentations.

Productive Seam Course 2B Design Studio Supervisor Jane Hutton Location Cambridge, ON, Canada

This landscape masterplan targets the revitalization of a site along the Grand River in Cambridge. Examining the riverbank through an eco-centric lens critiques the current edge treatment, which limits human interaction with natural processes. The alternative is an adaptive plan that forms a new dialogue between natural and built environments. Replacing the existing concrete walkway system is a green spine which seek to animate the riverbank. The imagined structural framework operates in a temporal and holistic sense, allowing the edge to design itself over time and create an enriched ecosystem. A network of pathways and facilities physically stitches the edge, providing occupants with new ways to experience the river in this productive corridor. Within these spaces, human users assume active roles as stewards of the environment engaged in maintenance, participants in recreational activities, witnesses to riparian life, and creatives. The resulting gesture harnesses the river as the foundation for growth, and extends past the existing concept of boundary.

Pathways Course 1B Design Studio Supervisor Donald McKay Location Toronto, ON, Canada

The institution of the contemporary world is a place of productivity, entertainment and interaction, belonging to the individual and the collective. This project questions the relationship between public and private space in the context of today’s library. Rather than a harsh separation, the blurred public to private boundary can make for a inspiring space for its occupants. The library implements an indoor promenade – a clear circulation path flanked by bookcase partitions, which moderate between the open resource collection and more intimate rooms for study, reading and col-laboration. Pockets of programmed spaces extrude from the arterial circulation, providing enclosure amidst the open resource display. The building’s envelope features a wood screen, acting as a filter between the activity within and city outside. The proposal aims to cultivate a lively community both within the library and its urban context by creating varying degrees of openness, which allows for public and private space to coexist organically.

All Roads Lead To... Project Archstorming Residential Stadium Competition 2018 *Finalist Location Brooklyn, NY, USA Collaborator Nidi Metaj

Elizabeth Yeoh

This project envisions the FIFA stadium outside the shortterm grandeur of the World Cup, as a continued public space for gathering, discussion and spectacle. The proposal presents the converted stadium as a “town square” comprised of residential, commercial and cultural buildings types. The World Cup event is significant in its ability to unite a diverse crowd. The site treatment follows suit by slicing the parcel to form axial connections to key landmarks – providing a transition between streetscape and interior social landscape. Inspired by the formal purity of ancient public spaces such as the Greek Agora and Roman Forum, the stadium seating can be appropriated post-World Cup as an informal gathering space. The converted structure repurposes the stepped slope to provide dwelling, work, and recreation spaces – each with unique outdoor terraces. The complex is an inviting space that draws visitors through its promenades, revives the ancient Greco-Roman tradition of public assembly, and through its adaptive reuse, creates a lasting sense of community.

Upon Shared Land Project Reside Competition 2018 Location Mumbai, India Collaborator Rushali Patel

This proposal for a new residential prototype in the Worli village of Mumbai marries the ideas of collective unity and individualism, to enable its occupants with both a sense of belonging and ownership. The design began as a critique of alienating architecture of many affordable housing projects. It aims to adapt the sense of community characteristic to the village’s vernacular housing to form a mid-rise typology. Active shared space is designated through a series of elevated walkways, which serve as platforms for the interchange of ideas and skills. The main promenade is an extension of the landscape, acting as a buffer from the water and bridging the existing communities. Occupants are provided with places to learn, gather, play, and contribute to Mumbai’s economic growth as consumers and businessowners. In lieu of a homogenous residential arrangement, a flexible plan permits the insertion of individuality. Folding entries provide a range of spatial configurations and degrees of privacy, allowing the residential units to fit current needs, but also acknowledging changes in occupancy and lifestyle.

Kedleston Hall Project Research & Fabrication Supervisor Val Rynnimeri Location Kedleston, Derbyshire, UK Collaborators Pyper Chalk Hannah Connolly Lauren Patrick

Elizabeth Yeoh

Kedleston Hall is a significant example of the role of the Grand Tour in inspiring the introduction of classical GrecoRoman architectural forms into English society. These seventeenth and eighteenth-century expeditions, largely embarked on by members of the aristocracy, were journeys rich in architecture, culture and education. As the tourists returned to Britain and continued their practices, their experiences helped shape new public tastes; giving rise to unique architectural expressions as seen at Kedleston Hall. The study of this 18th century architectural typology culminated in the production of a basswood model at a 1:125 scale. The physical model and research aim to convey the inspiration drawn from Andrea Palladio’s palatial Villa Moncenigo. It features laser cut details of architectural elements and the unbuilt rear extension. The section cut reveals the interior functions of the building, outlining the adaption of the exotic Palladian style to the familiarity of country life in an English estate.
