REBIRTH

The project, Rebirth, proposes wetland revitalization through the use of riparian vegetation of the Grand River Watershed. Sudying root network systems and the distribution patterns of the riparian vegetation on-site, we developed a strategy to expand the wetland area around the river through planting approaches to harvest the oodplain water. This initiative acts to diversify the landscape on a retired quarry site. This design process involves geo-engineering the site by designating three water typologies that work with the current expression of the land; pooling water, ďŹ sh ponds, and creeks connecting to the Grand RIver.

Riparian Landscape: Unknown location

Low Tide - Collective Assembly Mid Tide - A space for the passage of knowledge and wisom through story telling High Tide - Individual reflection chambers The inhabitants begin their day at lowest tide by gathering in the open space below the tower structure. As the day progresses the citizens break into story telling and song as they congregate around glowing pools of water. Rising tides lead people into independent reflection. This time of contemplation continues into the night where they are surrounded by glowing waterways under the moonlit sky. Intimate conversations can progress through the night and into the morning while the tide recedes and the cycle repeats for another day. Supervisor . Dereck Revington

THE FLOODED CITY

The inhabitants of the Flooded City attempt to control the rising tides that flood their land every day. The structure of the city is comprised of three scenarios reliant on varying water heights;

FABRICations.

Amsterdam, Netherlands | Green Tower

Within my four months at FABRICations, I was able to contribute to the design development for the second-phase proposal for Nagele Energy Masterplan- a village in the Netherlands. I was able to contribute to design meetings and work on schematic drawings of the energy flows proposal. I also worked on the Green Tower project -part of the Bajes Kwartier Masterplan project, where I worked on researching design precedents, circulation design, design proposal drawings, and a 1:50 model of the tower.

HILLCREST PUBLIC LIBRARY

The Hillcrest Village Library is designed to engage the local youth in a space conducive to exploring innovative ideas, where they can conduct experiments with tangible objects in a safe and inviting space. The fabrication labratory located on the bottom floor is connected to the youth reading space on the second flor through the double height atrium expressing the openness of the library to people of all ages. Separated from the collaborative nature of the second floor, the third floor provides quiet individual study spaces for the patrons to immerse themselves in the rows of fiction and non-fiction texts.

SPACE FOR CELEBRATION

The proposal for the redesign of the arts quad is aimed towards providing a vibrant safe space that reflects the diverse student body at the University of Waterloo. The implementation of multi-use areas allow for the outdoor gatherings and collaborative work spaces. A grand staircase and complimentary ramps connect the primary circulation path with the secondary pathway across the site to increase traffic in this closed-off area of the campus. This renovation of the landscape provides the necessary environment for the well-being of the student body.

DISTRICT HUB

The ‘District Hub’ is designed to provide a multi-use facility to each of the twelve districts in the Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan. The adaptable interior structure allows for the space to be organized for a range of different functions; enclosed market, educational and community centre, theatre, etc... Expressing the temporary nature of the camp - a refuge, the structure of the ‘District Hub’ is designed for disassembly so it can easily be transported to its next desired location.
