(The Toronto Waterfront Museum)

The site “351-369 Lake Shore Blvd. East, Toronto” is renowned as an area for recreation and a great spot for relaxation. Located along Lake Ontario’s water edge and touching the water on both the south and west sides, visitors are able to enjoy the lake view with the view of Toronto’s center island. Adjacent to the abandoned Victory Soya Mills Silo, the project on the proposed site has the responsibility of relocating people’s attention from the heart of Toronto to the city’s reborn harbor front. Close to the vivid and vibrating art industry of the city, the Distillery District with numbers of art gallery are located just a few minutes away on the north side of the property. Date: April, 2017 Contributor: Kun Liu, Wooyeong Kim


Site Plan

Considering the splendid location of the site, we wanted to design a museum that possesses the ability to embrace the harmony between the structure and the charm of the nature present in the landscape. Carrying this specific idea in mind during the design stage, we decided to use the idea of a “Lily pad� as a basic model shape of the museum.

11


12

The expanding biological character of the lily pad template illustrates a very peaceful take on a development project, rather than others found throughout the city. To represent the beauty of a lily pad, the formation of the museum is generated based on the essence of a lily pad and how it rests quietly on top of water, while encapsulating a bright and positive source of life and energy. In order to capture the concept of lily pad, the ground floor is roughly divided into two parts connecting through the interior lobby and exterior sculpture plaza. Second Floor

The interior space is meant to produce an atmosphere to incorporate artworks as well as proving working space for administration offices. This creates a challenge of transitioning between public and office space. Vertical communications run through 3 exits located at different locations, connecting the Basement Level, Ground Floor Level and Second Floor.

Lobby

Exterior The northern space of the property is a space which possesses elements such as nature and water, allowing for the beauty of the landscape to shine through. This allows for a peaceful transition from a busy city life, to an environmental and tranquil space where individuals can come to get away from the city, without actually leaving Toronto.

The Silicon House (Learning Center)

With the integration of the natural resources,the building are able to generate the power and water for its own use. By not only equipping efficient appliances harvest solar/water energy, the construction is also allowing natural ventilation to eliminate the usage of electrical venting system. More importantly, serving as a kid oriented structure, the building is representing itself to convey the concept of eco-friendly.

Bridge Model

With the regulation of holding up a 3kg brick for 30 sec spanning 16� in distance, the 50g model is designed and built with Balsa wood as well as metal pin in the shape of a curve. Bracing in the midway of the model ensure the resistance of lateral load within the model.

24

Date: January, 2017 Contributor: Kun Liu


Multiple structural countermeasures are adopted to withstand the massive load applying on it. The two arch bridging through the whole length are performing as reinforced components to against the compression acting on the underside of it.

Cross bracing in the middle of the structure consolidates the model by resisting lateral movement. 4 inter locking pieces are designed on each underside of the ends, preventing the failure of force transformation.

Facts Total Weight: 50g Material: Balsa wood (size: 1/16” x 1/8”, 1/4” x 3/8”, 1/4” x 1/2”, 1”x1”) Steel pin: 39 pieces Bracing units: 5
