By definition fulcrum describes a small object about which one much larger revolves. My proposal for a new community centre serves a similar purpose on the scale of a city. REET DI C K S O N ST

In a sense synonymous with its title, fulcrum acts as a new hub of community for Cambridge which albeit small can influence public culture over a much larger area.

Shift represents a new vision for the pedestrian and small business oriented city. Collapsible modules fit within a parking space and can host roadside businesses for a fraction the cost of a permanent building. A trial site for this concept is a stretch of Bloor St., Toronto. Here, a parking permit costs $3-4 dollars per hour, meaning a business owner would pay only $30.00 per day for access to a stretch of prime downtown retail space. Depending on arrangements made with the city, the owner could stay for a matter of days or even months, all the while having the flexibility to relocate at any time.

One or multiple units can be transported to any site fully assembled on a specialized trailer with the average pickup truck and be erected in minutes using a built-in jacking system.

Wall and floor structures are formed from single sheets of 14 Ga. steel, making for an incredibly efficient manufacturing process that renders a simultaneously strong and simple structure.

The jacking assembly uses a crank to spin a worm gear across a threaded rod, pushing the two walls outward to their locked upright position.

This project responds to the current government push to enhance accessibility within their provincial parks. This ramp will facilitate access to

Budget considerations were accounted for in consultation with the park manager and the maintenance foreman. Specifying

standardized lumber dimensions and efficient railing design are just two cost saving aspects of the project .

To accommodate winter lake ice movement, the final 25 feet of ramp has been designed in four removable, pallet sized segments that can be lifted from its

anchors in the shale and stacked in storage. Railings for this portion are also easily removable.


The construction of high density residential buildings is, more often than not, synonymous with the destruction of the neighbourhoods that previously lay at their base. This practice displaces any social and cultural vibrancy that might have existed beforehand and makes for lifeless city centres. This project, designed within a single 12 by 14m lot in a Toronto neighborhood facing imminent intensification, proposes a solution. By building up an individual lot the community’s diversity is not only retained, but strengthened.
