05 Center for Fine Arts | completed independently | Professor Pierina Saia

| Center of Fine Arts at McGill University completed independently Professor Pierina Saia

The proposed project for a Center of Fine Arts at McGill University derives from the planar projection of building-street alignments onto the site located at the intersection of Peel Street and Sherbrooke Street. It is moreover an extension to the adjacent Bronfman Building belonging to the Desautels Faculty of Managment. The resultant pattern formed by projections - at times rationalized, at times not - comprises the basis of a logic of formalism and transparency which articulates a programmatic procession weaving through spaces dedicated to the storage, viewing, and production of fine art. This procession is topographical in nature, hence emphasizing itself as an encapsulated concentration of the urban landscape set in an envelope of concrete and translucent glass.

16 The Memory Organ | completed with Jack Bian | Professor Martin Bressani and Professor Aaron Sprecher

| The Memory Organ completed with Jack Bian Professor Martin Bressani and Professor Aaron Sprecher The Memory Organ is a data archive, programmatically dedicated to the recollection, storage, retrieval, reconstruction, and representation of public memory. Unlike the traditional bank and/or museum of a comparable program, its wealth is virtual. Unlike the conventional data server, it is not concealed from the public eye. On the contrary, The Memory Organ celebrates the success of the Information Age and as such - embraces the ever increasing centrality of data to contemporary culture.

| House by Memory: Tribute to Aleppo 2063 completed with Julia Chang Professor Ipek Tureli and Professor Sinisha Brdar

A series of architectural interventions is derived from the reconstructed narrative of the Kurdiyeh family of Aleppo, Syria, forced into hiding in 2013 to escape the atrocities of civil warfare. These interventions are set within the rebuilt half of their destroyed apartment building - envisioned in 2063 to be the last remaining pre-war structure in their respective neighborhood. The physical reconstruction and chronicled deconstruction of their experience is approached through a series of material treatments that emphasize casting as a process of both preserving and narrating memory. In fifty years’ time, The Kurdiyeh’s home will become a defining landmark of a city undergoing physical and psychological rehabilitation and will stand as a universal symbol of courage, resilience, and public reconciliation.

(t) conceptual rendering


the war will end within a few years the neighborhood completely destroyed but they will remain whomever they knew whomever had survived at least partially, would have escaped

(R) client

but in fifty years, the city will be repopulated and they will be joined by those of different memories of other visions, of other dreams

disconnected from the war and from the city it had destroyed their house is that remains to tell of the past

what was once a place of tragedy becomes a space of spectacle and the war story was not just their own but all of ours

34 Floating City, Inverted City | completed independtly | Professor Ipek Türeli

| Floating City, Inverted City completed independently Professor Ipek Türeli Though only open to the public from 06.00 to 22.00, the foodcourts of Montreal’s underground city are constantly consuming light energy and producing solid wastes. They are untapped ecosystems in their own right. Simultaneously, they are sociallty forbidding environments, excluding a heterogenuous floating population of students, migrants, beggars, and commuters highly dependant on the use of its facilities. Through the mapping of the social and functional operations of the Eaton Center foodcourt - the largest in Montreal - this project proposes the installation of a second ¨inverted¨ city running throughout the underground network in an attempt at achieveing an overall social and energetic balance.

131,279 students total

The underground foodcourts directly and/or indirectly feed into the campuses of McGill University, the University of Quebec, and Concordia university. Many tend to socialize in these spaces, often pursuing otherwise controversial interactions. Pictured is an adolescent same-sex couple.

7,500,000 travellers per day

For newcomers and travelers to the city, the underground foodcourts are landmark locations. Pictured is a recent immigrant from southeast Asia awaiting the arrival of a friend to assist him with legal documentation.

30,822 homeless total

“floaters”

Montreal’s homeless are banned from the underground city. As such, they are concentrated throughout various points in the immediate periphery of the food courts (usually in the metro stations).

1,111,700 commuters per day

The metro trains arrive every 8.6 minutes. 95 exits feed into the underground city. Circulation is primarily facilitated through the metro network and pedestrian thoroughfares.

500,000 + conversers per day

For newcomers and travelers to the city, the underground foodcourts are landmark locations. Conversing is their main social activity. Hence conversations were recorded and mapped.

x,000 custodians (cleaners + security)

Cleaners and secuirty officers maintain consistent sureveillence over floaters and conversers - escorting them out of the mall whenever necessary.
