has been exemplary at our office. Hillary is “Hillary enthusiastic and self-motivated. She has the rare ability to work independently early on in her professional career - knowing when to search for solutions on her own and when to ask for assistance and guidance. She is very professional and takes her responsibilities seriously, even when tackling challenging tasks - from construction documents to analysis diagrams. Having had eight Waterloo students work with us in the past three years, I have no reservations in saying that Hillary has been the most outstanding of the group. Clover Lee, Principal

At Davidclovers, I was given a variety of tasks to do including computer drafting, modeling, rendering, montaging images in photoshop as well as on-site documentary photography, competition work and presentations for project bids. I was given many responsibilities throughout the term. I helped create a tender drawing set for a hotel renovation at the beginning of term, working with many complex structural details and technical components. I also worked alongside a selected team to put together a scheme for an arts pavilion competition. I montaged key renders, as well as rendering programmatic diagrams used in the final submission.

I drew the base drawings for many major drawings that will be important for the later stages of development of projects. I helped design interior elevations, including assisting in selecting fixtures and confirming the availability and if the price was within the clients’ budget. I also assembled packages of drawings, renders and photos for British Pacific Properties applications to submit for approval for construction.

I modified initial structural models that were presented on building sites to workers as a main reference. This included confirming with structural engineers the structural integrity of the initial design. I also modeled prefabricated custom-built steel details that will be sent for fabrication.

EREBUS & TERROR_STAGE PLAY


2B Cultural Iconography_2013 August

Coordinator: Tracey Winton

Group: Entire Class PROPOSAL For our 2B UWSA Cultural Iconography final project, our task as a class was to create a play. Our professor gave us the stories Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and the journey of Sir John Franklin to find the Northwest passage. We created, designed, and built every part of our play; the script, the props and costumes, the stage, as well as all the music and choreography. As a class of nearly eighty, we learned together as a collective how to work as a team and how to coordinate with many different facets to create a synchronized project. MY ROLE I participated as part of the choreography and acting team. I worked with our main cast of twenty actors, creating movements, directing stage movement and delegating spatial organization of actors and props. I have extensive classical dance training, which allowed me to play a valuable role within our team. Dance training has given me a natural sense for organizing dynamic stage movement, as well as an eye for human tectonics.

INTERTWINE_INSTALLATION

FINAL


2B Design Studio_2013 May

Coordinator: Anne Bordeleau

Group Members: Hillary Chang, Christopher Chan, Patrick Cheung, Zakarie Glaude, & Georgiana Nicoara Materials & Tools: String Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop PROPOSAL Intertwine is a study of the tensile qualities of string and its relationship with the natural tensile qualities of trees and branches. It aims to frame the river, the surrounding wildlife, and the enclosure; Intertwine draws viewers off the trail and encloses them in a place to rest, listen, and appreciate the beauty of nature. SITE PLAN

SITE SECTION


SITE The site was chosen because of its canopy conditions and unique threshold into a secluded space. In order to enter the clearing to view the Grand River, one must first pass through a small opening between a wall of trees, ducking under the thick branches. The natural compression and release in the existing branches inspired the quality of contruction; the structure compresses at the trees’ natural vertexes and releases where the branches thin, following the windows already created by the gaps in the existing foliage.


MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION Intertwine uses string to emphasize the site’s natural architectonic qualities while maintaining the natural figure of the environment. The built network of cords creates a wall and canopy that enhances the natural wall and canopy. Triangular shapes were inspired by the natural triangular pattern of the tree branches, as well as making an easily manipulated but strong frame. The movement of the infill string within the triangular frames help to draw the eye to key moments in the surrounding environment. Pegs were used to pin the rope down in strategic locations around brushes.

THE ROWING CLUB_FINAL 2B PROJECT 2B Design Studio_2013 July Coordinators: Anne Bordeleau Individual Project Materials & Tools: Rhino 4, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, & InDesign PROPOSAL The Rowing Club was designed for the Cambridge Rowing Club located in Riverbluffs Park. The premise of this project is to integrate the club into the site, to create smooth movement through the park, simplify the rowing practice ritual for rowers using the Club. The design of the Club connects users to the natural landscape, the intergrated materiality of the building and the water of the river. Users fluidly navigate through the site; entering the site from the south, one would only get a glimpse of a building’s existence within the park. As the user continues to enter the park, a view of the river is maintained through the Club’s boat storage; rowers enter the Club and proceed with their rowing ritual. The new Rowing Club focuses on fluidity and transparency; fluidity of circulation through the site, and transparency and integration of the built environment into the natural existing one.


CITY GARDEN_FINAL 2A PROJECT 2A Design Studio_2012 December Coordinators: Adrian Blackwell Individual Project Materials & Tools: Rhino 4 (V-Ray), Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, & InDesign

PROPOSAL In response to the ideology of Dolore Hayden’s “The Grand Domestic Revolution” and the shift from post-Fordist lifestyles, the City Garden project proposes to repurpose an existing parking lot into a development to aid integration of immigrant extended families into the city of Galt, while at the same time refreshing the lot into a green space for the whole of Downtown Galt to enjoy. The City Garden is able to provide public and private space for 100 residents at affordable rates, creating a warm community for residents to grow acquainted with the neighbourhood by breaking the boundary between public streets and private residence.


SITE PLAN

NOLLI EAST-WEST SECTION

NOLLI NORTH-SOUTH SECTION


GROUND LEVEL AMENITIES & LOCATION On the corner of Water Street and Imperial Road is a cafe connected to a public seed library and gardening shed, both open to the residents and the general public. Inside the courtyard is outdoor seating with access to view the private residents’ gardening plots. A children’s daycare is also provided with secure access only from the courtyard. These amenities create a public square and park space at street level, bringing the urban downtown community together in a safe and relaxing environment.


COMBINED UNITS On the residential levels, each unit is shared by two nuclear families, either extended families or two individual families selected by compatibility. The residents enter their unit from the shared living space level and can descend to their own private sleeping level. The separation between shared and private levels allows for a shared kitchen and living room for both families to use, as well as a shared compost are between two units for four families to use, but simultaneously giving each family their own privacy when necessary. Sharing a kitchen and dining room means more than just cooking in the same place; it allows the residents to learn from each other’s cultures and grow together as “neighbours” and friends.

“HANGER HELIX� Plastic hangers are found everywhere; they are an iconographic shape that hold their form and are used only as a frame. When looking at a hanger on its own, the shape induces a curvilinear shape, maleable and easily abstracted. Using a heat iron, I was able to bend a plastic hanger and give it a new form. Giving the hanger a new form gave it a new persona; a new life in which it is not only a frame for other things, but so it can be the centrepiece itself. Attaching multiple hangers together gave them even more presence; I was able to change a two dimensional standard clothes hanger into a three dimensional object with spatial qualities and a sculptural form.


“THE JUMP” The Jump is a three dimensional representation of the process of how a dancer feels during a jump; the base is the weight of the human body versus the top where the dancer feels freedom when propelled into the air. The spinallike column of thick wire shows the path the dancer will take, representing the “backbone” of technique that structures the jump. The nails around the spine represent the obstacles and difficulties felt while learning and training for the jump; although jumps may appear effortless, the process of learning the form and training one’s muscles to support and hold that form is a grueling one. Before the jump, it seems impossible to reach that height and achieve the magnitude of the jump; the nails piercing through the dancer in preperatory position pin the dancer to the ground. But after the jump begins, after the dancer takes off, all the weight and burdens of hesitation are released; the tightly bound wire unwinds and the dancer is free in the air.


Far Left: “ELOISE” charcoal drawing Adjacent Left and Above: sketchbook pages, pencil Through my classical dance training and working with professional dancers, one of the main themes I discovered was the struggle between form and ability. One’s own ability to move and create form is inherently motivated by one’s idea of what form he or she wants to create; however, the conflict begins when the body cannot fulfill the mind’s intent. Sketching other dancers after dance class helped me fully understand this conflict; I started to enjoy observing other dancers grow past the frustration I felt. Being a dancer myself, I learned how muscles functioned and how to create induction lines with the body, just not with my own body. Through observation, I was able to translate this conflict into the charcoal drawing on the far left; the form of the dancer is always limited by the physicality he or she exists in.
