Helsinki, Finland 31.7.2013

To anyone who’s concerned,

It is my pleasure to recommend Haley Zhou for any position he is applying. His time at our office in Helsinki proved that he will be a valuable addition to any company.

Haley worked with us for three months in 2013. He worked on various projects in different stages, mainly with the Helsinki West Harbor Terminal in its design development phase. Based on his work I would rank him as one of the most promising junior designers we have had the pleasure to employ.

Haley is highly enthusiastic, intelligent and talented as a designer. He was consistent in creating ideas and initiating design solutions as part of a design team, in a very positive and proactive way. Anyone who worked with him can agree that he has good people skills and a proven ability to communicate also in a multilingual work environment.

The employment ended when Haley decided to return to Canada. Had it been possible from his side we would have been glad to have kept him in our team for longer. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further assistance, or information.

Sincerely, on behalf of ALA,

Janne Teräsvirta

University of Waterloo

The Honors Bachelor of Architectural Studies degree at the University of Waterloo provides the foundation of skills, knowledge, judgment and practical experience required for subsequent professional studies in architecture. Though the Academic Plan is pre-professional, it is fully dedicated to imparting to students the culture and practice of design. Design is a synthetic activity. To do it well and serve the needs of the individual and society requires an extremely broad education. Students acquire an understanding of the workings of society and culture, of the principles of physics, of materials and techniques of construction, of the human interaction with the natural and built environment, of historical process, of critical thought and of the diverse forms of creative expression

Moss Park, Toronto There are currently 132 high rise buildings under construction in Toronto, the most in North America, ahead of Mexico City and New York. The incomprehensible rate at which Toronto is building unsustainable glassskinned condo towers are raising questions on what the urban future for Toronto will be. The aim of the studio was to imagine a mixed use building that incorporated an elementary school, commercial program and residential areas in one development. This model of development creates a more integral community that will be built and avoids the segregation of buildings that leads to unsafe and inefficient neighborhoods. The site is located at the edge of the urban expansion of Toronto and is situated besides a designated protective public park. The typical tower looms over its neighbors, while this projects takes a careful consideration for its surroundings and begins a formal contortion that maximizes sunlight, views and circulation system that helps build a sense of community. *The physical model of this project was shown at the year end review

Project Description: A court yard typology is contorted into a figure 8 in order to allow more sunlight and more rooms with view to the surroundings. The block is also chopped at an angle facing to form a terraced building facing the park. The terrace allows for more outdoor green space for apartments. There are four types of bedrooms and they are organized on a three floor configuration. The rooms are staggered in order to create balconies for each apartment. The podium contains the a mix of commercial and cultural programs. Major spaces (Gymnasium/ Auditorium) are organized in the center of the plan and allows for a 24 hour usage rate by both the school and the public.

Marco Verde

The project was an experiment in form finding and architectural design through a systematic analysis of a morphology, to achieve integrated building solutions. The projectbegan with an exploration of a dynamic system, that is the flow of ink after being injected into a tank of water where turbulence within the tank generated desirable formations.The process continued through an analysis of the aggregate transformations of the ink through the tank of water in a morphology diagram, which was then abstracted to reveal areas of density. A series of silhouettes were drawn to map the transformations of the ink while the abstract morphological studies were used to define areas of density. The proximity of silhouettes became proportional to the density of areas of the morphology, thus much of the project was preoccupied with creating transitions between differential levels of density. Another opportunity for transitional elements was found in the relationship between mapped silhouettes, and the algorithmic approaches that both generate space and perform structurally. The aim was to arrive at an integrated design solution which was derived through these algorithmic approaches which created transitional zones between densities. The result then was the formation of a building element that was designed through a defined algorithm that could serve a multitude of functions, mediating interior environments and sheltering against exterior conditions. This approach was developed and informed by research into Nervi’s integrated ferrocemento building elements and an encouraged consideration towards inherent qualities found in material, where strength and flexibility become increasing areas of interest. This was demonstrated through the material decision to create composite parts which prove to be lightweight and strong, retaining shape under stress. The opportunity found in fiberglass molds represented potential to increase the efficiency of the building elements and reduce weight, leading to thin slender parts that were thickened at areas of increasing strain. 01 04

The final stage of the project was the development of the analysis into an architectural proposal. The morphology manifested as a congregational space through analysis of the inherent qualities of the overlaid form and the design conditions available within the formation. Through the conflicting ideologies of an unconventional hyper-modern form crossing with the program of a traditional religious institution this project is an attempt into rethinking what it means to design in the current architectural climate.

The project began with a series of exercises in form finding involving the dispersal of ink droplets through water. Multiple trials were performed and documented in controlled conditions to obtain candidates whose form and dispersal patterns were compatible with the project’s objectives. From the candidate pool one formation was then chosen to proceed into digitization. Individual frames of the inks’ motion through the water was captured in 3 orthographic views to allow a conversion from 2d to 3d data. 8 seconds

Once the data had been digitized we were tasked with developing algorithmic options that could be propagated throughout the subject while maintaining its key traits and characteristics. Traits such as density, porosity and form were taken into consideration. Feasibility was also a contributing factor in the development of our algorithm since fabrication techniques were a key area of investigation along with a consideration for a full scale architectural proposal.

With Tab System


A 1:1 digital model was developed for the section of our morphology we intended to fabricate. Due to the curvature of individual pieces, a mould out of high density foam was made with the aid of a CNC router. Fiberglass sheets were then draped over the moulds with a mixture of resin and hardener. When the mixture was dry the pieces were then CNC’d out of the moulding, and each individual part was tagged and assembled using miniature nuts and bolts. A glazing system was also devloped to enclose large openings and they also required a mold but in this case heat-form clear acrylic provided the appropriate transparency.

Detail Detail and Fiberglass Cutting

waterloo architecture competition / ideas

Since our algorithm produced a ribbed structural system we decided to use fiberglass as our primary building material. This produced structural elements that had a high degree of flexibility for manipulation while maintaining a required level of rigidity as a whole. It reflected the traits and characteristics we were looking for in our initial design.

work / internship

Based on the algorithm that was developed in the initial design phase, one fragment of the formation was then selected to be translated into a physical model. A variety of prototypes were created in this stage in order to ascertain the most appropriate fabrication technique and material palette.

St. Mary Stree

The purpose of the final design phase was to produce an architectural proposal for our formation. The building must be placed into a site with opportunities for integration through the natural propagation of the initial algorithm onto the surrounding context. This integration must also be in cohesion with a specific program to be housed in the building.

Diagram Pattern Formation

We chose to propose a religious congregation center as our program, situated in an undeveloped lot adjacent to an existing church in downtown Toronto. This seemed appropriate due to the porous natural of our facade system which allowed for an abundance of light to enter the building, as well as the large free spanning space central to the formation, perfect as a congregation area.

Rome, Italy The Mussolini paved road of Via dei Fori Imperiali is filled with memory and history. It is a site filled with fragments and ruins of the greatest empire in human history. The modern rome is a city of contradictions and clashes of history with modernity. The project aims to connect the higher local neighbourhood while establishing a new entrance into the Roman forum with a series of public spaces that welcomes the pedestrian. The remianing space is turned into the building footprint and the building sits as a solid rock, embedded into the site and seemingly as timeless as the ruins it faces. It confidently wraps around the site and situates itself around the new public spaces that defined the original forum itself. It is a modern interprestaion of the Roman Forum that aims to catalyse the site while being effortlessly integrated.

Jiro Ono Chair w/ Lauren Tom Inspired by 89 year old Japanese sushi chef Jiro Ono’s relentless drive to seek perfect in his craft. We designed a chair that reflects his highly developed 19 sushi menue that is integrated while at the same contrasts and compliments it self. The chair is made of three pieces and through a common connection system of 45 degree tooths, can be reconfigured to many different shapes and uses.

Integrated Structural Design


Jiro has an obsession, it keeps him up at night and makes him get up every morning to work at the age of 89. He is obsessed with making sushi. Ono is described as a shokunin - a person who embodies the artisan spirit of relentless pursuit of perfection through his craft. His perfection is expressed in a 19-sushi menu, he does not serve any other type of food and an apprentice for Jiro would work for ten years before attempting to make an egg sushi. There is a blend of the traditional and The modern in the Japanese aesthetic. Jiro’s ushi are a result of thousands of attempts and the fine balance between detail and simplicity. He changes the proportions of his meals to suit each customer in order to maintain the pace of their meal. Every step of the experience is carefully choreographed. Perfection is demanded, from the rice dealer to the body temperature the sushi rice must be served at. All these must fit like pieces of a puzzle or it would not pass Jiros’ near-impossible standards.

waterloo architecture “The Competition has been a defining characteristic of architecture for centuries. Without competitions to spur creativity, many great buildings in our history would have never been realized We are in the profession because we are passionate about what we do. Often times the “real world” can be suffocating as there are client meetings, codes to abide by, budget constraints and deadlines. The freeness of a competition should be a welcomed breath of fresh air in the sense that you are truly designing for yourself. And, the results of competitions, not just the winners, increase the understanding of the profession. Within the architecture realm, other firms and students can learn from the various approaches. But, probably one of the greatest things about competitions is that they provide a way for the non-architect to relate to what we do. The power of an idea should never be taken for granted. Antonio Sant’Elia and the Italian Futurists understood that their designs would not be built – but that wasn’t the point. Their drawings and sketches were channels for the thinkers to depict a new urban image of revolutionary ideas. It was an expressive way to get people to start thinking and challenge the conventional.” -Karen Cliento Why open architecture competitions are good for Architects

Smart Harbor w/ Diana Lopez Pesaro, Italy Harbors have long been constructed as the economic backbone of a city. However with the recent times of environmental and economic instability, the relationshipbetween the water and city is an on-going evolution. Therefore, it is the perfect time to re-establish the harbor as the heart and future of Pesaro. The new harbor will attract visitors with Pesaro’s rich history in theatre, opera, cinema and the crafts, while allowing locals to gain access to wellness and educational facilities. Spaces will be used to provide entertainment to Pesaro’s citizens, as well as an attraction for tourism. Most importantly it will create a model for a more sustainable local economy that will become the new symbol for Pesaro and port cities around the world.

Internship Co-operative Education is one of the keystones of the Architecture program at the University of Waterloo. Beginning in second year, students alternate 4-month school terms with 4-month paid terms working for architects and designers. The Co-operative Program allows students to experience first hand the nature and variety of the work the profession offers. Work terms also make it possible to acquire a wide array of specific skills, discipline and experience which are placed in a balance with the more exploratory and speculative work which goes on in the Design Studio program. The benefit of diverse job and cultural experience come to virtually every student. Most spend at least one work term outside Canada and no one does all his or her work terms at one firm or in one city. This brings an extraordinary variety and maturity to the senior classes.

January - May 2011 Vaughan is a city north of Toronto that has expanded rapidly. Key infrastructures are already underconstrcution in order to connect it to downtown Toronto, including an extension of the subway system. The Vaughan Metropolitan Centre is at the terminus stop of the subway station and a master plan was developed to make Vaughan a thriving city. Working with Urban Strategies Inc, a plan was developed to include a mix of residential, business, commercial and cultural buildings. A central park acts as the focal point and separation to the northern residential and southern commercial districts. A horseshoe bus terminal is connected underground to the subway terminal currently under construction. I was part of a four person team that included Principle Mike Szabo and my main responsibilities included the 3D modeling as well as In depth analysis and options done for a 400 000 sq ft office tower, above ground bus terminal connecting an currently under construction subway station and the relocation of a major retailer at the podium of an office block.

University of Wilfrid Laurier January - May 2012 The Global Innovation Exchange building strives to establish an appropriate scale for future development of the Wilfrid Laurier University campus and to urbanize and animate University Avenue and its surroundings. The stratification of the floor plates creates variety and interest on all elevations. Bisected by the curvilinear auditorium and 300-seat lecture hall drum. The beauty and clarity of this form is achieved through large overhangs that appear to effortlessly float on top of each other. other I joined an 8 person project team led by Birgit Siber and Don Schmitt. The project uses Revit 2012 and my responsibilities included developing the design and detailing of the auditorium, 300 / 150 / 75 seat classrooms and all staircases within the project. The project is also positioned to achieve LEED Gold and the 2030 Challenge for fossil fuel reduction. d i

Febuarary - May 2013 The western harbour of Helsinki caters for the passenger traffic to Tallin and St Petersburgh. The traffic to the port is growing rapidly. After receiving first prize in an invited competition Autumn 2012 ALA have developed further the concept for the new passenger terminal and its adjacent functions. The whole programme p gramme becomes one building mass: The new terminal building extends into commercial services capped by a tall hotel extending further into a parking building and finally the existing existi g terminal buildi building. g. At the northern end of the pier two new office buildings frame the approach to the terminal. As you move southward the harbour boulevard gradually rises up to the 1st floor taking taki g drop off traffic and the tramlines up p to the main entrance. The traffic going to the ferries stays at pier level, below the raised entrance square. q ALA is designing the entire project all the way from the current planning phase to execution execution.

Concept Sketch

Project Description: A traditional three-temple courtyard layout is followed with an emphasis on central axis and the experience of proceeding through the forecourt with a reflecting pond and traditional pavilion. An underground exhibiton space allows for flexible interior space capable of hosting a variety of cultural events. Water is used as an element of separation to act as a threshold to the courtyard. It is also present at the boundary of the pavilions and further enhances the centrality of the plan. A range of traditional materials are used and a copper slat roof emulates the traditional form of a Korean Temple. The louver allows for a view through and reveals the intricacies of a construction method perfected by time.
