HELLO, my name is Ethan, Iâ€™m a third year architecture student at the University of Waterloo. Iâ€™m an extremely driven and detail oriented worker who has experience with the visual presentation and communication of ideas. I thoroughly enjoy the design process and being engaged with others working to problem solve.

Contributed to projects producing physical models, renderings, 2D drawings/furniture designs, and animation/diagrams. Worked on Galleries Lafayette Renovation, Sanpelligrino Factory, San Fransisco Bay RBD Competition. Having a great deal of independence and responsibility I developed strong efficiency team coordination skills.
Toronto Architectural Rendering Firm. Enhanced visualization skills by producing 3D models and images of buildings. Worked alongside a team of designers to create interior, exterior, and plan view renderings for a variety of different sized projects. Gained experience effectively interpreting 2D drawings at varying stages of development to tell a story about a project.
TECHNICAL PROFICIENCY Rhinoceros 3D 3DS Max AutoCad Vray Photoshop Illustrator InDesign
Camp Everton Implemented youth summer program, and developed lasting leadership skills.
Grant recipient for re-design of Robert F. Hall Secondary School cafeteria. In a leadership position with a team of design students we developed a plan for the renovation of the cafeteria. Worked producing drawings, survey data, and photos for a new cafeteria design.
Design charrette - Bolton Camp, participated in the development of ideas for the revitalization of Bolton outdoor recreation center. Worked in a small group to design outdoor classrooms.

THINKING INSIDE THE BOX MODULAR PRE-FAB CONSTRUCTION Buildings are responsible for 30 % of our overall energy use, therefore it is important that we design with the intention of reducing the embodied energy of the materials we use. Prefabricated and modular building practices is an option to achieve an affordable and sustainable design. By designing on a grid that is based off of standard sizes for construction materials (4 feet x 8 feet) material is saved by limiting waste and offcuts, Constructing panels on site that are made up
of locally sourced building materials reduces transportation and limits the amount of energy that is required to move material to other locations. An original structure is built so that the remainder of the building can be built by filling in the mega-structure. Thinking Inside the Box encouraging community through building as well as addressing issues of affordablility and sustainability in a gentrifying and growing community.

TORONTO OUTDOOR RECREATION LIBRARY The outdoor recreation library encourages the community to become involved in activities that are not easily accessed in an urban environment. The libraryâ€™s main collection is a variety of equipment that can be signed out for use in a outdoor setting. The secondary collection is a variety of books that cover a wide range of topics and provide
information on nutrition, outdoor sports, maps, trails, and environmental issues. The library addresses the unique demographics of the Queen West area by implementing program that appeals to youth and residents at both the center for mental health and addiction as well as the surrounding community.

The structure of the library was designed with large trusses that allow for open spaces that provide views across the library and the different levels. The many visual perspectives are achieved by sections of suspended elements, such as the multiple bridges that link various spaces together.

LIVING ARCHITECTURE SYSTEMS-REACTOR CELL â€œThe Wood Wide Webâ€? is a term that is being used by biologists who are studying the relationship between mycelia fungi and plant networks. The cortex, or outer most tips of a root system are colonized by the fungi, which is able to connect multiple plants through these underground networks. Suzanne Simard from the University of British Columbia proved that Douglas Fir and Paper Birch trees were transferring carbon to other trees using the mycelia network. She says that trees are not functioning in a Darwinian scene of survival of the fittest, but actually are working together and transferring nutrients to younger plants. This same system of fungus provides plants with an early warning when one plant has been infected. If buildings were able function as a system, collecting information and responding as collective, we could have highly intelligent architecture that is adapting and working with adjacent structures and environments.

A PARK FOR ONE A PARK FOR MANY The basis for the design of the park is to create a space where both the individual and the collective can function in a single space and still feel separated from one another. The park has a general gradient of three overarching programs, moving from community to socio economic to ecological areas. There is wide elevated circulation bridges designed to move crowds in a
linear and direct path that connects major programs. This large path is designed to fluctuate based on the amount of people that needing to access specific programs. The large path highlights views of smaller individual ares and encourages exploration to more concealed parts of the island.

SILO CENTER ONTARIO PLACE The silo center is building designed to re-engage the public use of Ontario Place Island. The structure reuses the existing silos that have been abandoned, and makes each one an area of programmatic intensity that closely relates and services the adjacent landscape: The idea of the collective and the individual allows the visitors become an area for the for
the collective, where the silos leads someone into the more individualized activities in the surrounding park. Acting as areas for collection and diffusion the silos are the areas where people gather and then diffuse into the marshland, grassland, woodland, or shore lands. Activities include, a ropes courses, a mud run, canoing, and sheepâ€™s pen.

BLOCK PARTY: URBAN PLANNING In collaboration with: Hannah Carmichael, Jacob Drung, and Jing Liao. As toronto cuntinues to sprawl outwards, the city looks for a clear structure to its development. We propose a low-rise, high-density scheme that responds to its adjacencies. The rules: Zoning should become a gradient rather than sectors. Buildings facing larger streets have larger lots/
heights, while buildings facing smaller streets have a smaller lot grain/shorter buildings. The mid-block is then used to create either density (tower), green space, or required service space (laneways) A healthy mix of program, including the preservation of light industry creates and socially and economically engaged urban fabric
Flagpole shaped lots emerge from sale of subdivided lots due to high inheritance tax in 1980s Japan. Each lot was regulated to have at least 2m frontage to the street. This offers a viable strategy for building in the midblock.
New York city grid, general block size of 60 x 100 meters and building frontages of 8 meters create an active street face. Building typology changes whether or not it faces a street or avenue; larger lots and buildings are along avenues.
The St. Lawrence block, with interior small lots protected by L or U shaped large lots, introduced small streets running through the block to promote a â€˜neighborhoodâ€™ atmosphere as opposed to an isolated housing project.
The Munich block consists of a solid, mid-rise perimeter facing the street. This creates an interior courtyard condition which has been filled in over time, creating a unique internal lot structure. This combination of mid and low rise buildings creates an active streetscape both inside and outside the block.
