public square

openbaar interieur case study: erasmus mc ĂŠquipe voor architectuur en urbanisme, 2009 Based on a case study for the current Erasmus Hospital in Rotterdam, the project aims to create a new public realm. A sunken square provides an oasis from the street level traffic while simultaneously providing connections to the surrounding program: a hospital, school, park and subway.

cantilevering pavilion

mass housing

In rethinking the modern family home, this unit explores moments of interaction throughout daily family life. Configurable screens of varying transparencies and perforations conceal and reveal, open and divide space.

light-energy map The 35-hectare site is located in the neighbourhood of Parkdale, Toronto. Based on light mapping conditions of the existing site, the new 4000 unit mass housing plan bridges the existing neighbourhood to the water, which is currently separated by an expressway and brings excitement and revitalizes the site.
