LILY TRAN Architecture Portfolio 2018


L I LY T R A N Hello! I am a second year student studying at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. I am particularly interested on the affect that space has on one’s actions and mind, and how architectural experimentation can breed novel environments. The following is a collection of my architectural works completed in my first year and second year of architecture school and a selection of my other works.

JOURNEY Co-ordinated by Derek Revington and David Correa November 2017. City project.

As an art gallery, the journey decides what one sees and what one does not, where one goes and where one does not. This predetermined path is not obvious, giving many options to those who wander, those who are unaware that the end result of every journey is the same. The composition of the underground city creates a dialogue between the metaphorical art within it, the light that defines it, and the visitor who perceives it.

CHIAROSCURO Co-ordinated by Derek Revington and David Correa. December 2017. Museum project.

Chiaroscuro is a Film Noir museum illuminated by the light created by the projection of films. This light, whether interrupted or enhanced by the architecture, creates dramatic and haunting encounters through exposure or obscurity. From one’s journey through the museum, one observes film noir on various scales: distant, close, distorted, or pure. This observation occurs whether it is through a projection on a surface or embodied through the people within the space.
