Design & Development Narrative Mesh; noun,an interlaced structure. A mixture of cultures, people, and communities, Mesh represents the vibrant life of Toronto. Our goals are to bridge the gaps between the varying neighborhoods and create a contextual gradient between the future East Harbor Towers and the local neighborhoods. We look to revitalize the Don River area through 5 key points: River Revitalization, Community Engagement, Affordable Housing Integration, Sustainable Principles, and Anticipation for the Future development of Toronto. The first goal is to revitalize the river and its embankment, as well as engaging the user and the surrounding context. By naturalizing the river from an under utilized and polluted canal to a more natural environment, it will improve storm water management and the quality of the water. Submerging the freeway and the rail line across the river allows pedestrians to have a stronger connection to the river, as well as improving traffic flow and mitigating flooding.

Toronto is a vibrant and culturally diverse city, we want to capitalize on that and integrate cultural exchange along the Don River. To the North are large single-family neighborhoods and with the future development of East Harbor, we aim to gradualize the transition between nearby neighborhoods and the forty-five story towers to the South East. Providing public space to host events helps improve walkability and connectivity to local businesses and cultures.
The cost of living in Toronto is extremely high and as a result, affordable housing is in desperate need. Our aim is to make more than 50% of the housing available to lower income families. We will achieve this by reusing shipping containers as a modular system that is quick and easy to assemble and which enable a lower building costs. The inhabitants will have the ability to take ownership and personalize their own container configuration. A modular and affordable building type, benefits include, easy LEED certification, cheap and rugged, durable, fast construction and mobility.
To achieve sustainable goals, we will integrate tracking photovoltaic systems throughout the site to provide sustainable energy while providing shading and protection to pedestrians. Water management on site allows us to collect and filter excess storm water. On site there are two existing buildings used by locals, we aim to adaptively reuse these structures as amenities and infrastructure for the community. With all the sustainable goals we were able to meet the LEED standards.
With the cities drastically high housing costs, Mesh will offer a large amount of Affordable Housing that will propel Toronto into the future. Also with the revitalization of the River, we feel that we are following the history of Toronto and the importance the river has played by re-introducing the river back to the communities of the Don River Area. Leading in sustainability Mesh is only the first example of many projects that could take place along the river. We see the future of this site being a catalyst for change in the city of Toronto.
EQUESTRIAN TRAIL PARK RIO SALADO | EAST MESA
The Equestrian Trail Park utilized the existing irrigation systems on site to celebrate water. By designing the pedestrian trail along the flood irrigation valves, we encourage the interaction of people, water and the horses.
Along the trail, there are spaces that encourage visitors to stop and interact with animals. The first pocket space is located right next to one of the irrigation valves, it is 8 feet lower than the normal pedestrian trail but 4 feet higher than the horse zone. This space allows people to get closer to the horses without direct contact.
The second pocket space is built around the newly added horse stables, visitors will have the ability to see the horses in their stable resting or being prepared by the caretaker for the tour. Most of the horses that are roaming free in level 2 will be staying in these stables.
NEGLECTED DESTINATION The site is surrounded by water all year, yet it failed to attract peopleâ€™s attention. Normal pedestrians are unable to access the river bed due to the extreme elevation changes.
CREATE ACCESS Create access to the riverbed by creating a gradual descent through smaller elevation changes. Introducing pedestrian trails to encourage site circulation.
THE DESTINATION Attract nearby pedestrians and provide easy access to the river bed. Increase human activities on site without interrupting the existing farm animals.
ONE EAST CAMELBACK PHOENIX, ARIZONA
Integrated facade studio Ground level - commercial 2nd and above - office and residential
The organic shape of the facade system allows it to change dimension from unit to unit. Depending on the window direction of the unit, the depth of shading aluminum can also be increase as well.
BUILD AND FACADE SYSTEM The aluminum facade is 5â€™ deep to provide maximum shading for the resident, and the arc on each aluminum piece provide structural support to support each other. The pattern can be designed to change in dimension base on sun studies and it can also stay consistent in some parts. Each unit was designed with the cross ventilation in mind. Similar to a cooling tower, the atrium allows the cool air to flow through each unit and rise up in the center.

HERBIARY - HISTORIC PRESERVATION TUCSON HISTORICAL BARRIO COMMUNITY
SMELL, TOUCH, TASTE, HEARING, SIGHT The Herbiary was designed to be a space for busy people to take a break and just relax. All the visitor will have the opportunities to interact with the herbs with their senses.
The Herbiary is a neighborhood healing garden that offers organic and Pesticide-free herbs, teas, and various health and wellness products. The originally the site belonged to a Chinese market called Luckyâ€™s that serviced the neighborhood many years ago. With respect to the history of the site and the surrounding culture, the healing garden offers both domestic herbs from the desert and foreign herbs from China. Herbiary is a location designed to immerse individuals not only into the sensory effects of a garden but also become knowledgeable of the many benefits they can experience within the place.
ASU WELCOME CENTER ASU Tempe Campus
The ASU welcome center is the starting point of a great adventure that will be filled with both discoveries and curiosity. The visitors’ center is incorporated with solar technologies and rainwater harvesting features, working together to provide a open gathering space. The Visitor’s center is the best representation of president Michael Crow’s vision, and a statement for current ASU and the direction we are heading for the future.
PROGRAM AND LOCATION Working with the Students from the Master of the real-estate developing program to determine the best location for the visitorsâ€™ center. It will serve as a beacon for new visitors and the architecture will attract more people to the site. With all the sports facilities around the welcome center, the program needs to be very flexible. With an open floor plan, the outdoor space can be multi-purpose during sports events and others.
An information center will service as a starting point for any new or future students.
