Dear Sir or Madam,
I am pleased to recommend Hannah Carmichael for the position of student intern or junior designer at your company. As a Senior Architect at Leroy Street Studio, I was Hannahâ€™s direct supervisor while we put together the interior design development package for a 24,000 square feet retreat house in New York. She came in at the last three months of an intense design and drawing process and contributed a great deal on completing our set. During this time, she demonstrated her sincerity to design, quick adaptation of new CAD and 3d programs, a strong commitment to her tasks, a cheerful and positive energy, and good team work. She enjoyed sketching through options, studying details and going through materials to develop the space and the objects with in the space. She brought fresh eyes to the project and I was happy to see how the project matured during our time togather. Some of the tasks, such as putting together the kitchen plan and elevation drawings that correctly represented our design and functions of the kitchen, were beyond her level, but she learned each process quickly. She successfully completed the kitchen package by following directions, asking questions, and applying what she learned to the next level and did not get frustrated by the review and redesign process to get the details correct. She was very pleasant to work with. For all of these reasons, I do not hesitate to say that Hannah will be a fine intern for your company. Should you have any questions, please contact me at the number below. You may also contact Marc Turkel who was the partner in charge for the project .

FIRST YEAR DESIGN STUDIO
THIS IS A CHILDRENâ€™S LIBRARY. This childrenâ€™s library proposed for downtown Toronto is programmatically and tectonically designed to engage and empower children in their exploration of the imagination. The goal of this library is to employ tactics that create spaces of opportunity rather than imposition of ideas, to allow children to manipulate and occupy the library in ways that best fit their creativity, confidence, sense of adventure and wonder.

‘A YEAR IN REVIEW’
EMPOWERMENT OF THE IMAGINATION Activating a rich imagination requires exposure to fictional and non-fictional worlds followed by autonomous outlets to inspired creation. These outlets take shape through programs such as writing workshops, an art studio, nature filled courtyards and most primtively, fort making.

WORLD MAKING By granting a child autonomy over their environment, something rarely experienced in a prolonged stage of choices made by others, you are empowering them to think, feel, and see with an empathy that creates a better world.

THIS IS A PUBLIC PARK. SHRED THE PARK began as an exploration of how public spaces could become healthier, productive and democratic by promoting the ‘collective right’ to remake/make, use and belong. In order to achieve a public space that is socially produced, the objective of the project, a framework of infrastructure was designed to create opportunities for the appropriation of space .

Workshop/indoor skate park
Rock Climbing Building
speed permanence maintenance
Programs that best embodied this ideology through a clear culture of collective creation in addition to the embodiment of disorder are what are listed above. The infrastructure of the park is based on a hierarchy of circulation established through the aggregation of material and program. Programs are initially formed in the â€˜in-between spacesâ€™ shaped by the permanent paths and grows with the flexibility of the temporal paths.

Gender equality begins with the development of the child, and is the foundation of the project. The early childhood development centre emphasizes mutual respect, cultivation and appreciation of nature, community engagement and a celebration of the many languages children speak in order to develop them as divergent thinkers and active independent and collaborative members of their community. A child that is valued as an individual rather than a product of their gender is a child that will respect the individuals around them regardless of differences, and with the celebration of their individual way of communicating they will be more empathetic to what is being communicated to them through nature, speech, art, and action.

THE UNIMPEDED ADVENTURE The adventurous and playful quality of the architecture, specifically the circulation, aims to liberate both women and child in their movement, imagination, and curiosity, so that their transition is far from institutional but rather sets a new standard for how the home and community makes you think, feel and act. The form celebrates the individual as a courageous adventurer, using a diverse topography of interactions and experiences so that one may think divergently, feel deeply, and act freely.
