THIRD YEAR / 1ST SEMESTER
H+C / PHASE I The Heritage and Culture Community Center serves as a hybrid typology between private functions and public interactions. The dominant ideology behind the design relied on the movement through the means of circulation on the interior as well as through a creation of a dynamic facade on the exterior. The overall shape was born out of a need for a contrasting design in comparison to the surrounding urban context as well as the ever changing height requirements for the interior program. The center's layout can be separated into a 3-part system created through a column grid. The western part predominantly consists of spaces dedicated to exhibitions as well as public interactions. The central part is dedicated to the two light wells located to the north and the south which allow natural light into the building. The part column serves as a backbone of the building housing most of the private functions.
The first step consisted of taking a look into all the legal aspects of the site to determine the setbacks and a potential maximum envelope. A feasibility study was also conducted to analyze the potential cost of the land and the hard costs of construction for a project of this scale. Subsequently a number of amendments to the zoning was proposed to allow more freedom with the project design.
T 02.GREEN SPACE
Being bound by Front St. to the south, the site lacked public circulation and interaction. A decision was made to push back the maximum envelope to allow a creation of a green space to the south which would dilute the vehicular dominated Front St.
The north end of the building was raised to allow direct views to the Victoria Memorial park into some of the private meeting spaces located on the second floor of the center. The resulting split allowed a creation of a private patio condition connected to the general meeting spaces on the second storey.
Due to the depth of 27 meters the central areas of the building were not receiving ample amount of natural sunlight. To counteract the issue, two light wells were run through the building. The southern well runs all the way to the basement while the northern one stops at the second floor creating an outdoor green space.
The internal program of the project was structured around a primary circulation path which wrapped throughout the entire building allowing the users to experience multiple different exhibitions and the supporting spaces all while learning about Canadian culture and heritage.
To accentuate the different geometries of the overall shape of the project, the contrasting height requirements for public and privet spaces were showcased by sloping the roof into different direction in accordance to whenever the program required more or less height. This allowed to bring further contrast between the project and the site as well as a creation of a drainage system.
07.DOUBLE SKIN FACADE
To counteract the amount of glazing utilized in the project, a second skin facade was created. The facade acts as a shading device as well as a means of framing components both on the exterior and internally. The facade is composed of wooden components and sits on a steel frame made of HSS which connects to the slabs.
To further promote the ideology of movement implemented on the interior, the facade was broken down into parts which were then rotated at different angles.

Having performed a site analysis, the on-site density was mapped out to determine a) the potential attractions on site and b) the best location for a main entrance. Determining these two conditions allowed to further begin experimenting with where the density could potentially be dispersed in the future.

H + C / PHASE II
Present Project The second phase focused on fluidity of spaces as well as alterations to the facade conditions. Through the removal of certain program aspects as well as utilization of cores instead of columns as the primary structural system, the project was able to achieve a much more open feel as well as further develope the sculptural ideology of phase one. The overall envelope of the building utilizes predominantly zinc paneling in conjunction with a number of wooden fins. The wooden fins formulate a pattern which from the exterior can be perceived as moving waves. The zinc paneling itself has been strategically chosen to be black to bring out the more natural palate of the wooden fins.

FLUX The primary task of the project was to provide both fabrication and exhibition as well as living spaces for artists. The museum features three different exhibition spaces all custom tailored for the needs of their respective artists. Because all three artists require different amounts of light, the idea to create a spectrum circulation from a bright exhibition space to a dark one was created. The museum also features a number of outdoor spaces to encourage public interactions.
The first step was to figure out the overall max envelope and determine the potential important views on site.
Once the maximum envelope has been determined it was important to split the building into the required programs. The main central components serves as a artist workshop with all the other programs circulating around it.
The lobby on the ground floor has been angled towards interior to avoid blocking the views on the streets level towards the church located to the west.
The second storey exhibition space is angled towards the Toronto downtown core to frame the view of the skyline as well as extenuate the cantilever created in the previous step.
Development of green roofs to accommodate the lack of greenery in the area as well as further push sustainable practices.
Further development of the program saw the development of the residential units for the artists who showcase their work within the museum.
The fully developed project acts as a living, exhibition and a workshop space for the artists.

58 POWER 58 Power seeks to bring a form of a close knit community into a co-op development. The project sough to create a circulatory path carved out of a solid form which would represent a metaphorical street. Aligned with a variety of different public services, the "street" allowed a creation of a self sustained entity. The ideology for the coop consisted in the idea that the residents can both work and live within the building passing down skills or knowledge to their neighbors. Due to the idea that the path will be carved from the overall form, the project faced a number of structural challenges in the form of cantilevers. These were resolved through the means of cross bracing which was further utilized as a design component through its exposure into the units.

The minimum required parking ramp height forced the circulation ramp to take on the current shape to allow enough distance for a car to pass while complying to OBC standards. The intricate shape allowed for creation of green space as well seating areas.
The main ramp is cladded in wooden planks in conjunction with grass. The arrangement and rotations of the planks allows the grass to be integrated more organically into the structure while still allowing solid areas for circulation during the winter season.
