Recommendation for Jing Liao

June 23, 2017

To whom it may concern, Jing worked at plusClover as a full time employee from January to April in 2017. During her tenure at plusClover, Jing worked on the Valentine private residence and the outdoor bar & lounge at The Repulse Bay. For Valentine, Jing worked on the project from Concept all the way through Construction Administration. Jing was an outstanding addition to our office during her three months at plusClover. She is not only very motivated to acquire new skills, but also is extremely committed and dependable. Jing has the rare ability to know when she needs to work independently, and also when to ask questions. She is consistent in setting a high standard with her work, and always manages her time well. Jing improved her communications skills during her three months with us, being more vocal with both her questions and her opinions about the work. I recommend Jing highly and I would not hesitate to have her work in our office again. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Sincerely,

Clover Lee Principal plusClover clover@plusclover.com

what if housing could adapt as we change? Inspired by its namesake, scaffold housing is informed by the temporary and transformative aspects of public and domestic life. The project aims to provide flexible multigenerational housing for new Canadian families with a three dimensional grid consisting of cubic modules of 3 by 3 by 3 metres becoming the organizational fabric of the building. Prefabricated panels can then be rearranged and added to a megastructure to redefine space and accommodate changing lifestyles and new residents as needed. The public spaces house varying seasonal pop up events using the same system to prevent off season stagnation. Human lives are dynamic and challenged by constant change and so should the buildings they inhabit.

This also allows the building to expand upwards as families of the original residents immigrate in the future, densifying at the pace of its urban surroundings making scaffold housing sensitive to changes in the lives of the residents and the city itself.

What happens when a Toronto library is lifted? The new Parkdale Library is governed primarily by two concepts seeking to improve upon typical typologies of public buildings. The first concerns an atypical attitude towards public space at the building exterior while the second deals with the creation of relationships between different levels in the interior - resulting in a more engaging building section. Featured in 2016 Projects Review Exhibition. arch 193. design studio supervised by Lola Sheppard.

What could a hanging climbing shelter look like? Permaledge is envisioned as a permanent sanctuary for mountain climbers suspended 2000 metres high on the unforgiving granite wall of Yosemite’s El Capitan. It is intended to serve as an emergency shelter in case of climbing injuries and sudden dangerous weather conditions, stocked with aid supplies and radio communication. However, it can also be used as a place to enjoy the view and recharge. Its name is a play on “portaledge”portable platform tents used when scaling mountains. arch 173.

what if partitions became doors and doors became windows? Quarry studio is fixated on how common architectural elements such as doors, partitions, and windows can be reimagined and synthesized into a single functioning component. As a result, the artist is allowed to to physically reconfigure the space in terms of public-private, indoor-outdoor, and light-dark relationships to better suit changing needs. Materials include translucent polycarbonate, concrete, and steel. arch 192. design studio coordinated by Rick Andrighetti.
