DOWNTON RESIDENTIAL PROJECT

The Downtown Residential Project is located in the Downtown of Sudbury. This proposition is meant to support and create diversity in the Downtown Community. In attracting a new demographic of families while also supporting the commercial setting of businessmen and young adults. The project also attempts to support the reinvention of the mining city to a more sustainable place through adding green spaces that also act as social spaces.

The Art Museum Project is located in the Downtown of Sudbury. There is a dominant street art culture often uses purgatorial spaces such as alleyways and parking lots as their canvas. These large-scale murals create interest in areas that are generally forgotten. The art museum proposed is meant to highlight these forgotten spaces through creating focus in these areas and use this motif through adding art throughout many transitional areas.

All purgatorial spaces are put in equal importance to the main art spaces. The use of alleyways calls upon the local street art culture of Sudbury, providing identity and support to local artists. Model |Lasercutting

LITTLE ITALY MARKET

This project is located inside in an intimate community inside Copper Cliff. This proposition is meant to draw local tourism while also affirming the culture dominant in the area. The project uses an abandoned building that provides this connection to the community. The creation of a local market and diner is meant to be a medium for the community to show and invite locals around the area. Locals area able to use this to sell and interact with people outside the community and share their stories.

Kivi Park has a culture of hiking and walking during the summer and snowshoeing and skiing during the winter. The open fields allow a space for people to host recreational activities such as sports. In response to the programming of the space, I propose structures that are able to be rented in correlation to the recreational activities hosted and rental shop to support the trails of the forest. These structures are molded by the bald spots of the forest to reduce the human intervention while also engulfing space with trees, acting as both a wind buffer during the winter and shade during the summer

WINTER PAVILION

The Winter Pavilions introduced and gave us experience to design build projects that the McEwen School of Architecture specializes in. In this case, these pavilions provide a landmark and a point of interest for visitors who come and skate in Ramsey Lake during the winter. These provided spaces to rest and sit down, allowing a centralized focus of the lake and in turn create a program that allowed vendors to sell warm beverages and provide interest for people to visit.

The Akira project was the reimagination of the cult classic movie and manga created by Katsuhiro Otomo. The muse of the project created a dystopian and overpopulated Tokyo, creating land and space in the Tokyo Bay. This paralleled the ideas of architect Kenzo Tange and the floating city. It came from a brutalist industrial time that is superimposed by Otomo in his manga and movie.

IN THE DYSTOPIAN WORLD OF NEO-TOKYO, THE IDEALS OF PRIVACY AND SPACE HAVE BEEN DEEMED OBSOLETE. THROUGH THE DIGITAL AGE BIRTHED THE ERA OF CONNECTEDNESS. EVERYONE IS CONNECTED BOTH IN THE VIRTUAL AND REAL WORLD. IN THE ERA OF INDUSTRIALIZATION, JAPANESE LAND HAS BEEN OVERUSED AND FORCED THE NEED TO EXPAND THE LAND. PLANNERS AND ARCHITECTS DREAMED OF BUILDING A CITY IN TOKYO BAY, PROVIDING BREATHING SPACE IN THE DENSE POPULAITON. THE CONTINUOUS BUILDING AND THE INTRINSIC NEED TO CONNECT EVERYONE CREATED THE STYLE OF ARCHITECTURE SEEN IN THE DYSTOPIAN ERA.

LJOMA NUIT BLANCHE

The ljรณma creates a glow that invites people to gather around. The emulation of a fire juxtaposes the natural aspect of the uniform man-made structure. This glow betrays itself by its lack of warmth. This contrast becomes the idea of the bright lamps and the dark night of Nuit Blanche.
