the sketches Throughout the design process there are several rolls worth of trace paper drawing, note writing and scribbling which never gets seen. This is a brief collection of the design process drawings from the [re] Stitch Tampa design competition.

dynamic groundwork, ossga competition Part of a collaborative submission to the OSSGA Student Design Competition, in association with TOARC. The final design highlighted contest’s theme as the year of biodiversity, through implementing a solution which minimizes the impact of extraction on the greater context. Agroforestry and wind and solar power generation were incorporated into the phasing, in addition to leisure trials and guest facilities. The final product included three panels depicting analysis, phasing and final concept. A combination of digital and hand rendering was utilized for communication.

beaver valley ski club, weir construction details Emphasizing storm water management and recreational hiking and skiing spaces, the design included the enhancement and restoration of the infiltration, deep and polishing ponds. A new weir was developed which maximized the potential of the space through incorporating a pedestrian bridge on top. The steel curves reflect the main use of the site, the snow drift and the half-pipe.

st.paul’s campus, university of waterloo A project from a summer internship, the design focused on creating an accessible entrance way to the extension of the University of Waterloo campus. Tasks included design concept, layout, grading, planting plans for SPA, as well as all supporting details and specifications. Grading was undertaken with a focus on minimizing cut and fill and directing storm water runoff.

architectural guidelines, goderich, ontario In response to the 2011 tornado event, the fourth year BLA class undertook a design project in partnership with the town. As part of a group submission a nineteen page Architectural Guidelines document was developed. This document was to direct the redevelopment of the town through proposing solutions to architectural aesthetics and aesthetics of space. Zoning, rezoning and bylaw amendment were incorporated into the proposed guidelines. Conceptual drawings were provided to demonstrate concepts of scale, proportion, line and repetition, in addition to principles of new urbanism.


the existing zoning was considered and modified for densification of the downtown core and to include mixed usage of the site.

[re] stitch tampa design competition, tampa, florida The Tampa project focuses on the current state of the downtown core, in relation to the waterfront and the greater surrounding context. Analysis and inventory was collected on the movement systems, districts, building density, land uses, water movement and other existing conditions. Functional relationship diagrams further direct design development, which has been refined to focus on three primary sites and recommendations for the downtown.

extensive inventory and analysis was undertaken to understand the context of the site


a combination of autocad, sketchup, and photoshop was used to achieve the desired rendering style
