CELIO INTERCHANGE Project: Studio - Fall 2019 Type: Cultural Institution - Public Space Location: Rome, Italy Duration: 4 weeks Collaborators: Peter Kwak - Featured in Year End Projects Review The democratic nature of free space and its potential to create functionally inclusive opportunities lends itself to be a progressive asset in generating communal spaces. By allowing for the flexibility to perform, wonder, and rest, individual activities co-exist in collective harmony. By creating a series of these free spaces, CELIO INTERCHANGE proposes to transform an inactive zone of Rome’s archaeological park into a catalyst that promotes and facilitates the production and consumption of contemporary and historical culture. The project begins from an understanding of cultural production as a byproduct of daily life, while consumption occurs at a level of observation from the temporary. When these two processes are given the space and opportunity to interact, the results are the events of cultural interchange; a cycle of inspiration and communication through visual and spatial proximity. We proposed to re-level the site in order to create a series of plateaus informed by a site responsive grid, leaving in its place a topographical memory of the existing hill’s presence while producing spaces that are more functional and flexible as free space. This organizational grid is then used as a tool to establish activity zones to help guide the process of surface treatment and vegetation (Leisure Zone, Green Zone, City Zone, Artifact Zone, Music Garden Zone, Cultural Zone).

THIS IS NOT A SCHOOL Project: African School Project 2019 Type: Secondary School Location: Benga, Malawi Duration: 3 weeks Collaborators: Jonas Swienty - Honorable MentionThe project, “This is not a school,� aims to redefine our traditional perceptions of education and reimagine the archetype of the classroom. Education does not only transpire within the confines of four walls, and the opportunity to learn exists in our everyday lives and the spaces that surround us. Our goal is to create a project that can facilitate as many unique learning opportunities and spaces as possible in order to create the best achievable educational conditions. The project is comprised of a catalogue of unique and playful building types that when combined together to create a sequence of distinct but harmonious educational spaces, can create something much greater, a community. By introducing woodlots throughout the site we hope to use the woodlots to teach students about the pressing issue of deforestation and its effect on Malawian lives. Eventually as the school grows these same trees will be used to help in the construction of new buildings.

MACRO FIBRE PAVILION Project: Studio - Fall 2017 Type: Pavilion Location: Cambridge Ontario, Canada Duration: 4 weeks Collaborators: T.K. Justin Ng - Featured in Year End Projects Review Macrofibre Pavilion is a research pavilion exploring live systems through the properties of fabric. The design is based on the unique characteristics of fabric at both the macro and micro-scale. While large sheets of fabric are very good at sagging, smaller sheets have a fascinating ability to arch under compression. Macrofibre Pavilion inverses the two scales, using the micro system and patterns behind fabric to erect the macrostructure, thereby providing it with necessary rigidity. The macrostructure is composed of rigid voronoi cells joined by flexible connections, the cells act like nodes in the structure of nylon. The thickness, spacing, and sizing of each of these cells influence the form of the structure. Many of the cells hold fabric containing vegetation or water, dynamizing forces acting upon the macrostructure, creating an ever changing pavilion.

ROLLICK Project: Passageway 2.0 Competition 2017 Type: Public Space Location: Chattanooga, United States Duration: 2 weeks Collaborators: T.K. Justin Ng + David Correa - Design Jury Finalist We envision Rollick as a great opportunity to reinvent the alleyway typology, creating a bold social condenser capable of hosting a range of activities that tie the community together, becoming a new hub for exchange and events at the heart of Chattanooga. Rollick contains six programmatic zones, each focusing on a different aspect of the city, providing visitors with a variety of experiences. Urban furnitures bring familiarity and warmth to the space, inviting pedestrians to engage with their surrounding freely, fostering an inclusive self-animated space. Rather than hiding the pipes and wires that cover the walls of the alleyway, our proposal will embrace the exposed infrastructure, creating new pipes that engage with visitors in the form of music instruments, lights and periscopes that expand the visitor’s view to the mountains beyond. Not only is our proposal interactive, intuitive, and photogenic, the simple construction will allow Chattanoogans to take part and feel a sense of ownership through community building workshops.

Stepped Theatre

Periscope

The circular steps act as both seating and a stage. Contrasting against the linear alleyway, the motif of the circle becomes an important place of assembly.

Two periscopes will run along the columns of the building to expand the visitor’s view towards the mountains and the river.

Seating

Storefront

Conversations are the basis for fostering a good community. Informal seating spaces will provide the public with a place to relax and chat in the alleyway.

Addition of steps transform the back-ofhouse into a new storefront, activating retail in the alleyway as well as provide additional visibility to the alleyway, making it a safer space.

Pipes 2.0

Pipes 2.0

Some of the pipes can become musical instruments while others create seating and hammocks.

The embracing of the pipes and infrastructure that runs throughout the alleyway becomes interactive.

Rock Climbing

Little Library

A small climbing wall in the alleyway will encourage new climbers and pay homage to the Chattanooga climbing community.

Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.

805 STRACHAN Project: Studio - Winter 2017 Type: Mixed Use - Mid Rise Location: Toronto Ontario, Canada Duration: 2 weeks Collaborators: Individual - Featured in Year End Projects Review Situated west of the downtown core of Toronto and north of Garrison Commons, 805 Strachan looks to address the lack of truly inclusive public spaces within the city where unintentional barriers are created in many buildings . By creating a porous ground plane and utilizing programmatic and sectional strategies, the notion of a truly public building can become a reality. Large public programs such as a library, food hub and recreation center are introduced with their entrances along the highly transparent ground plane. At major entrances the ground floor is sunk 3 feet in order to provide a buffer zone between the busy streets of Strachan and Wellignton. All major entrances allow for a visual connection to a spacious courtyard and spill space of many programs. Beyond creating a porous ground plane, a move of carving a continuous ramp that moves from exterior to interior is driven by the intent to elevate the ground plane. Along the journey of the ramp various program elements are carved out and influenced by the sloping nature of the ramp.

THE MOEBIUS FIXTURE Project: Material Syntax 2017 Type: SLA Printed Lighting Fixture Location: Cambridge, Ontario, Canada Duration: 8 weeks Collaborators: Ethan Schwartz Fabricated from photopolymer resin, 3D printed using the Form2 SLA printer and drinking straws. The Moebius Fixture capitalizes on the capabilities of stereolithography printing to create the unique shape of the Moebius strip. Using computation design the Moebius strip is turned into a perforated framework to give a new use to an everyday object, the drinking straw. Studies were done into lighting quality, connection details and form finding to result in the final design. As a result of its unique form and textured design, the lamp is proposed to be marketed to high energy and innovative businesses found in start up tech companies. A secondary proposed market, follows the lead of well acclaimed company IKEA. Due to its method of fabrication, the Moebius Fixture is able to be pieced together in parts, with easy assembly it can be targeted to contemporary home environment.

MUSEE D’ORSAY Project: Iconography 2016 Type: 1:200 Laser Cut and CNC model Location: Cambridge Ontario, Canada Duration: 2 weeks Collaborators: Amanda Reyes-Martin, Conrad Speckert The model we created is a 1:200 Laser cut model comprised of millboard, plexi glass and a CNC pine base. The model is a sectional model of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. From the exterior the model appears to be a replica of the Musée d’Orsay in its current state, however in reality it is a sectional model that explores the current state of the museum contrasted by its past as the head of the southwestern French railroad network; Gare d’Orsay. Within the main barrel of the building we have illustrated a temporal split where the left half of the barrel showcases the life of the Gare d’Orsay in its prime before its renovation starting in 1939. Highlighted are the old tracks that used to run through d’Orsay with ticket booths and passengers in wait. The other half shows the current state of the Museum with new displays and various rooms.

GRAND RIVER BRIDGE Project: Grand River Pedestrian Bridge Type: Pedestrian Bridge Location: Cambridge, Canada Duration: 3 weeks (Competition Phase) Collaborators: T.K. Justin Ng - Competition 1st Prize It is important that the Grand River Pedestrian Bridge both respect the history of Galt and yearn for the future of the city. This Proposal carefully makes use of material and lighting to create a new bridge that lightly touches over the Grand River. Through the use of weathered steel , the bridge pays homage to the railway that once ran across Galt at the height of the mill industry. At the same time, the glass reveal will bring new life to Galt by encouraging the exploration of the Grand River’s future. Corten Steel clads the lower portion of the bridge to allow it to respect the site with a purer form. The steel will change in colour over time and be an indicator of the history of this bridge. The cladding also allows the shadows of the structure above to be casted with clear and distinct lines, representing how the past frames the future and embracing the beauty of the structure. - Original submission write up
