2019 Fall


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!

Instituting viable food production methods in global cities is an integral part in reducing our carbon footprint, ensuring food security, and reconnecting people to the earth. This masterplan for student housing in the York University campus implements urban agriculture to restructure students’ relationships to their food and to each other. The process of cultivation and communal connections by plot is the key social driver. The housing community will be an accumulation of smaller groups brought together by collective cultivation. Varying degrees of privacy move across scales of cultivation. Buildings are organized around a series of open spaces, each with its own productive identity. An expansive field of agricultural plots and an elevated greenhouse for year-round food production are shared between the diverse housing typologies. Communities overlap as the scale of production increases from the individual to the household to the neighbourhood to the university and come together in agrarian and intellectual cultivation.

Elizabeth Yeoh

An area of the York University masterplan was further developed into mixed-use student housing – chosen for its position at intersection of woodland, industrial land and academic campus. The design was explored along the principle that built form can be a conduit for vegetative growth and in return, it animates the spatial qualities within. In this scheme, landscape ascends the levels of privacy. The original massing is reduced to slim mid-rise buildings with landscaped corridors flowing down from Boynton Woodlot. Towers shield the street life from disruptive vehicular traffic along Keele St. Nature is integrated into both urban and domestic life. Indoor green spaces are connected to work spaces, dwellings and shops, which exposes student and community users to the smells, sounds and textures within. Collective areas are framed by lush gardens, while residential units are occupied by personal planting. The detailing is grounded by the richness of concrete, steel and wood, yet softened by light flitered through a screen of leaves.

Productive Seam This landscape masterplan targets the revitalization of a site along the Grand River in Cambridge. The current edge treatment limits human interaction with natural processes. The alternative is an adaptive plan that forms a new dialogue between the natural and the built environments.

Course 2B Design Studio Supervisor Jane Hutton Site Cambridge, ON, Canada

Elizabeth Yeoh

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. The intervention builds on the natural process of sedimentation, 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 environmental stewards engaged in maintenance, participants in recreational activities and creative production, and witnesses to riparian life. The resulting gesture harnesses the river as the foundation for growth, and expands the existing concept of boundary.

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.

Syte Architects Position Part I Architectural Assistant Location London, UK Supervisor Rob Whitlock

Over the course of my time at Syte Architects, I was involved in several local projects across various scales and stages of design. I participated in a masterplan that re-envisioned the role of a high street in Queen’s Park, a proposal for a commercial lobby space, and a conversion of a Grade II listed building for residential use. My primary focus at Syte was the master planning of a high street for a community presentation at the end of the summer. I assisted with developing a strategy of interventions, which encompassed reimagined shop frontages, street furniture and landscaping. Through physical modelling, I tested ideas for a community pavilion addition to the existing shop building. The smaller-scale projects I had the opportunity to work on involved the design of joinery, and adaptation of existing interiors and structural details to meet their proposed functions. Across all projects, I led the production of digital and drawn visuals. Visits to site provided the opportunity to see work in progress and assist with construction valuations.

KPMB Architects Position Architecture Intern 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 Position Architecture Intern 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.
