House on a Hill a rendering project

A rendering project, in which one must design a home onto a topography using basic 3D modelling tools and use rendering methods to sell the outcome as a lifestyle.

01


This contemporary loft-style living space can be directed towards either a small family or a bachelors/bachelorettes. It encompasses a variety of features that can be geared towards either clientele. With an oceanic view and a serene environment, this home can welcome any client.

It is made of brick, wood and metal. A lot of glazing is present to emphasize the perfection of the environment around the home. Natural lighting is enough during the day while spot lighting is used during the night.

The all-around beach environment aids in creating this appealing ambiance for those young and old. From sunrise to sunset, not only will this living space become the perfect home, but it also creates a lasting impression for those daring enough to give it a chance.


Toronto Museum

a complex building feasibility study Through thorough analysis of winter cities and a downtown Torontonian hotspot, the St. Lawrence Neighbourhood, a schematic proposal and feasibility study was done for the development of a Toronto Museum. This involved all three dimensions of architectural science; project management, design and building science.

neighbourhood analysis - group work

To live within a winter city can be both a blessing in disguise as well as a hassle to many. The harshness of the climate and the difficulty to travel within the city at these times, contribute to the negativity sensed from habitants. However, a successful and pleasing winter city is one that embraces its climatic conditions and responds to it through planning, culture and attitude. It is one that, despite the many negative aspects of winter, allows for a comfortable and liveable environment for all times of the day.

Toronto is one of the largest cities and the biggest

commercial, industrial, and cultural center in English speaking Canada. North of Lake Ontario, Toronto’s business district is where the city center concentrates. Directly east of the Financial District is the St. Lawrence Neighbourhood otherwise known as the Historic District. Despite this neighborhood’s potential, several aspects of its urban planning and development are holding it back. Its apparent inaccessibility, the lack of late afternoon and evening events beyond Front Street and the lack of design consideration regarding pedestrians on the streets are critical, solvable, issues that stop the St Lawrence neighborhood from being the foremost area in Toronto.

A dissectional analysis of Toronto shows it comprises necessary elements of a functional city. The most essential elements are the city’s nodes. The second element is a city’s connectors. The third element is a city’s urban open spaces.

The official urban design guidelines have defined eight distinct zones which are significant sectors within the main core of the St. Lawrence neighbourhood. Outlined in black, the guidelines address the most prominent regions within the neighbourhood and provide suggestions on how to enhance the architectural, and cultural characteristics while still maintaining the existing conditions and attributes of the historical neighbourhood.


specific site zoning - individual In the 2010 Zoning Bylaw, the site of 60 Wellington St. is currently zoned as: CR 4.0 (c3.0; r4.0) SS1 (x2555) In a new bylaw, enacted on August 27, 2010, the height restriction for the proposed site is 23m. Since this law was enacted fairly recently, it is fair to ask to be considered under the 1989 zoning bylaw, which is mapped out with a residential height restriction of 26.5m. It is an exception to the 2555 amendment. formulation of design

The Toronto Museum Corporation or formerly the Toronto Museum Project (TMP), is a non-profit agency which desires to weave connections for the community between the past, present and future of Toronto. Keeping with the urban character of the surrounding site, the new Toronto Historic Museum is themed through its integration of a West side courtyard fronting Wellington. This courtyard provides a visual connection between the surrounding open spaces as well as a beautiful view of one of Toronto’s most historical landmarks, the Gooderham building. A continuation of the colonnade implemented on the neighbouring building will be fulfilled by having a colonnade surround the courtyard to provide an open and welcoming atmosphere.

Similar to the Gooderham building across the street from the proposed site, this proposed museum will celebrate its corner presence. This corner will be glazed in order to provide an unobstructed view of Toronto’s architectural foundation, the Gooderham building and the St. Lawrence Market.

S T

Harmonizing with the surrounding context, the proposed Toronto Historic Museum will activate the ground floor with public retail. A transparent gift shop protrudes towards the sidewalk of Church St. allowing walkerbys to glimpse inside. The main entrance is one that is essentially hidden from sidewalk passerbys.

The magical aspect of this museum is the main stair. It protrudes out at the South East corner, imitating the corner presence that the Gooderham building encompasses across Wellington St E. This stair not only reaches every floor of the museum, but it also is entirely transparent allowing for an infinite view of the surroundings.

Pruitt Boulevard

a revitalization proposal for Pruitt-Igoe Pruitt-Igoe began as a intensive housing project looking to fulfill the needs of the sudden growth of population within St. Louis, Missouri. Ending as an iconic failure, there is now desperation for a revitalization plan to bring back what was once a lively site.

proposal - a connection from the water to the city solution = BOLD statement

Shopping/Market District

Park/Playground District

Entertainment District

Site

The proposal will direct it’s attention towards making a bold statement. It will entail the creation of a totally new landscaping across a corridor beginning from the Pruitt Igoe site towards the water. This corridor is built upon a pedestrian boulevard, looking to draw in the community. On either side of the boulevard is public transportation as well as bike lanes, encouraging a safer and more pedestrian-oriented corridor. Vehicular traffic resumes as an extention of two existing streets which lead to the Pruitt Igoe site.

Why Las Ramblas works. -

Why Pruitt Boulevard will work. Built forms suggested on either side of the boulevard can be utlized as mixed use and rental as a means for the surrounding residents to seek convenient retail as well as space to open up their own businesses. Lacking in St.Louis are areas of socialization, gathering and interaction. This proposed boulevard can begin to force this upon those who utilize it without them even realizing it. A maximum height of 4 storeys is proposed for the built forms to keep with the human scale of the surroundings.

A flexible Market is proposed right off of the Pruitt Igoe site. A cut was made through the building purposely to frame a view of St. Louis’ Gateway Arch. Materiality is kept constant with the surrounding buildings as well as the height.

Transparencies for views and interaction

are instilled within the building such as the bridges from one building to the other, the elaborate main stairwell and the cutaways from two of the main floors. The building is looked at as more of a gallery of the people and the food cultured within the area.

Extreme Redesign a 3D printing challenge

A challenge to redesign and improve a product used everyday. The product was then modelled and brought to life through 3D printing.

problem

In pairs, extensive research was done to come to terms with a product relating to the public on a personal level. Fashion and comfort are an enormous part of a woman’s life. To have both is a giant leap. A redesign of the high heel allowed us to delve into the deeper issues of the physical pain and health problems women put themselves at risk to while making a fashion statement. The relationship between the height of a heel and the amount of pressure exerted on the foot is progressive. With a decrease of one inch on a heel, it has been proven that there will be a satisfactory amount of comfort added for the user.

Making an effort to be sustainable as well, the numerical usage of high heels was also studied. The average North American woman has 19 pairs of shoes, of which 4 are worn on a regular basis. One of the reasons found for this over consumption of shoes is the inability to find one pair of shoes which can adjust to different situations. Why not start with the high heel?

The Twist ‘n’ Lock system is easy and stress free. With the use of just one hand, the user can twist the heel to unlock the heel, whether in high heel position or in low heel position, and simply push up or pull down for desired height. It is a fast and effective way to adjust the shoe according to the time of the day.

manifestation of the spirit in architecture The purpose of this project was to investigate the professional actions of the architect in the creation of a sacred space within specifically designed criteria; the Catholic tradition. Working as though in professional practice, through both partnered work and individual work, case studies were analyzed, the design went through numerous phases and a church materialized.

The shadow study indicates that for the most part the site is not drastically affected by shadows cast by the surrounding buildings. The far east corner of the site receives the most light consistently through out the entire year.


manifesto The presence of Christ through built form is most successful in the expression of symbols, which in their fundamental nature allow for individuals to feel a sense of transcendence. The initiatory rite of baptism calls upon water to be a tangible symbol of purification and renewal. The central role which water plays as giver and cleanser of both spiritual and physical life provides the element the profound ability to tap into our sensory system. Water engages our visual, hearing and haptic senses, and when utilized in ecclesiastical architecture has the power to nourish and illuminate the liturgy. Intrinsically water contains within itself a mystical quality, and it is in its use in the physical manifestation of the sacred where it holds the power to transform and reflect materiality and space. The psychological, emotional, and spiritual experience of water communicates the very mystical presence of the spiritual world.

Fusion of light and water The architectonic strategies for the materialization of the building envelope has evolved through the collaboration of two separate manifestos. One whose central focus is on ecclesiastical architecture and water, and the other with the manifestation of the Heavenly Kingdom and light. When combined the two partis form a single vision for a space rich in its sensorial experience.

Romans 6: 3-5 For surely you know that when we were baptized into union with Christ Jesus, we were baptized into union with his death. By our baptism, then, we were buried with him and shared his death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from death by the glorious power of the Father, so also we might live a new life. For since we have become one with him in dying as he did, in the same way we shall be one with him by being raised to life as he was.
