The Lodge in Patagonia Studio / Andrew Levitt Summer 2016
The mountains are humbling. Humilating me, confined to a point lost in the landscape, Floating in a space deprived of scale. A wall stands tall Between the reach of my limbs And the extend of my eyes, Guiding me on a path between two points. One, two, I trace the wall with my footsteps, But with each step the mass shrank, Sank deeper into the earth And appeared behind me. My giant strides disturb the silence in the soil, My gentle breathe tussles with the howling winds. Where do we stand To find comfort inthe confrontation of this layered landscape? Braving the storm, Snow blurred my vision Numbed my senses And through the slit in my eyes I see myself undressing. The jacket, the sweater, the socks, Till I stripped down to my bare skin, And lowered my pale body Into a dark And deep deep sleep.

The Great Room
Museo Del Pomerium Studio / Lorenzo Pignatti Fall 2015
Collaboration Daniel Abad The Pomerium of ancient Rome was an intangible boundary which enclosed the sacred cities. The boundary signified a change in etiquette, behaviour, meanings and traditions through the use of law. This line formed a relationship of opposite regions; essentially inside and outside; Urbs and Ager. The project focuses on representing the meaning of the Pomerium by deriving the line into a plane, separating the millennial boundary bewteen Urbs and Ager. This violent event of separating two poles is seen throughout the site through the forces carried by monumental rammed earth retaining wals and the ripples in the fabric of the piazza, the park and the market. These ripples give the project a sense of static push for a snap back of the Pomerium. The museum and an event space are placed inside the Pomerium plane using delicate architectural language. These structures exist as pavilions sitting on a reflective pool. We use the Pomerium as a objective space to reflect on the meaning of the Ager and the Urbs. We propose three sculptures be placed through the Pomerium plane representing the recurring metaphor of fratricide; the Urbs vs. the Ager. These sculptures will represent the iconograph of Gilgamesh and Enkidu, Cain and Abel and of course Romulus and Remus.

The Great Room Studio / Andrew Levitt Fall 2014
White space is a blank area devoid of content, such as the space between the words in this paragraph. When a button is being pressed to create a space between two letters, is that effort used to spell a word, or to generate the blank gap in between? Why donâ€™t we ever wonder what exists between the two ends of a bracket? [ ] The building is a city constructed from negative volumes, and it displays how white spaces interact with the surroundings in contrast to the positives. The two concrete slabs, top and bottom, sandwich an intangible yet consciously designed negative. While the slab is the separation between the interior of the building and the surroundings, ironically it is the necessary element to define the space. The floor plan, the pools, the facade and the roof are all negative elements, and instead of keeping things out they invite the surroundings into the space. The way how sunlight is filtered can be controlled, so can the guidance of wind direction, or the shadows casted by trees. In a seemingly empty space, a personâ€™s experience or direction can be shaped by these exterior elements, subtle but ever existent. What the architecture generates is not a space for a person to step into from the outdoors but exit to another.

Studio Vincent Eschalier Work / Paris, France Winter 2015
Projects: Construction d’une surélévation de logement, Paris Construction de 4 maisons en surélévation, Paris Construction d’un immeuble de logements, Paris Studio Vincent Eschalier burst into the scene in France with addition and renovation projects that turn the lack of space in Paris into an advantage and basis for interesting propositions. The ongoing projects on existing rooftops introduce new dynamics to the verticality of the city. My work at the agency focused mainly on administration and construction documents. A construction of 4 houses on the rooftop of an office building, a renovation and extension of a single family house and a new construction of a residential building. The office was a small scale operation so I had responsibilities including on site meetings, planning of electrical and plumbing systems, structural consideration, development of details and schematic development of the projects. Two of the projects have recently completed construction. (Renders provided by an external source)

Atelier Marko Brajovic Work / SĂŁo Paulo, Brasil Spring 2014
Projects: Parque Rio Sagrado, Morretes Faena Collaboration, Miami Atelier Marko Brajovic is one of the most exciting architecture firms in South America right now. The firm focuses on Biomimicry and highlighting the fun aspect of architecture. Atelier Marko Brajovic also designed two pavilions in the Milan World Expo 2015. During my stay in the Atelier I took part in two projects. Parque Rio Sagrado is a park situated in the atlantic forest of Southern Brazil, an environmentally friendly theme park operating mainly with natural resources. And, Faena Collaboration is a display space in Miami designed to showcase the collaboration projects done by OMA, Forster and Partners, and Heatherwick Studio at the Faena District Miami Beach. I worked in small teams so I was given the freedom to develop my own ideas to bring to the table. I was also the company photographer during design events and By Nature lectures held by Marko Brajovic.

Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates Work / London, UK Winter 2013
Projects: MGM Cotai Casino Hotel, Macau KPF is one of the worldâ€™s leading architectural firms, working on projects including civic and cultural spaces, commercial office buildings, transportation, residential and hospitality developments, institutional facilities and mixed-use developments. During my stay at the London office, I was a member of a 15 person team working on the MGM Cotai casino hotel project in Macau. Construction is due to complete in 2016. The project includes a podium space, a street front display, a theatre, a VIP mansion, main hotel space and an extension tower. I mainly worked on the schematic design and programmatic planning, post render image editing, detailing for facade design and spectical roof connections, and prepared presentation packages for clients. I also collaborated with engineers and interior designers in Shanghai, Hong Kong and the US. (Renders provided by an external source)

Planeterraeum Scotiabank Nuit Blanche / F_rm Lab Fall 2014
Collaboration Daniel Abad, Fysal Amirzada, Wesley Chu, Aaron Cote, Patrick Harvey, Tony Kogan, Thomas Noussis, Michael Nugent, Jake Read, Alexandra Sermol, Keegan Steeper The Planeterraeum, also known as the Dome Dome, is a student initiated installation constructed for the Soctiabank Nuit Blanche 2014 held in Toronto. Nuit Blanche is an art event featuring 130 projects spread across downtown, from dusk to dawn. What happens when we lose sight of our own world, focusing too much on exploring the unknown? We wish to build a space that allows people to revisit the city they inhabit through a completely new perspective, and enjoy a moment of contemplation amongst strangers. The project is a 12 metre geodesic dome, which is traditionally the structure used for creating planetariums. But instead of projecting stars, we projected the view of Toronto taken from 100 metres above. 5 Go Pro cameras are attached to the bottom of a hexacopter, simultaneously recording footage from different angles. The 5 footages are then projected in synchronization to create an inverted 360 degree experience inside the dome.
Chair for Astor Piazzolla Structures / Heinrich Koller Fall 2014
Collaboration Daniel Abad Argentinian by birth, Astor Piazzolla is the father of Nuevo Tango, a movement that saved a struggling music style and ensured its place in the 20th century and for years to come. He adopted the persona of the conductor which forged a character and reputation that followed him wherever he performed. Our chair will focus on the relationship between three themes; Piazzolla, Tango, the Bandoneon. Artist, Art, Palette. The chair drew inspiration from the Bandoneon, an instrument of careful craft and detailing that lost its place after the bombing of German factories. The melancholy Piazzolla communicates through his music is the base of our design, and the detailing language is taken from the elegance of the instrument. Piazzolla brought about a new way to play the instrument. Rather than sitting down Piazzolla played the Bandoneon with one foot raised on a wooden stool. When enclosed, the chair is the wooden cube and an acoustic resonance device. The vibrations are passed on from the Bandoneon to the bandoneonist to the chair, making the whole an instrument.
