L i l y Tra n Hello! I am a third year student studying at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. I am interested by the affect that a space can have on one’s actions and mind - how tangible architectural manipulations can create or frame vicacious moments, thoughts, stories.

The following is a collection of my architectural works completed in my first year and second year of architecture school, previous jobs, and a selection of my other works.

To Whom It May Concern

This letter shall serve as a very positive letter of recommendation for Cynthia Tran.

Cynthia Tran has been working at T akeshi Hosaka Architects as a Spring intern from the 8th of January to the 20th of April executing

2018, and she demonstrated commitment, experience and dedication when expected of (director)

her. During the time

and

of

her internship,

Cynthia

Tran

has

worked

the

duties

directly under

and responsibilities Takeshi

Hosaka

has contributed to the projects we have under management by providing different design solutions, ideas

and practices during the design process.

Her inputs on the projects that the company assigned to her have included

one new proposed project. We were very pleased with Cynthia Tran's performance and whilst she was initially here to learn from

us, she was able to share new concepts, working practices and experiences by leveraging her international

exposure - something our juniors and less experienced team members greatly appreciated and benefited from.

Cynthia Tran's model making abilities were best demonstrated during our new

projects . She finished a lot the works which

greatly satisfied Takeshi, who was her boss.

Through her knowledge and understanding of the production process paired with her computer software skills (3D modelling), she managed to work with the team to produce some high quality materials. It was these very same high quality materials that aided in supporting Takeshi' s design, which ultimately made the difference in producing a winning entry.

We regard Cynthia Tran as highly competent. reliable and someone who is always committed to delivering high quality work. Her humble personality and soft spoken manner works well within a team environment. As an individual she demonstrates determination and high levels of motivation making her a prime candidate for future opportunities in team management. Cynthia Tran also possesses a natural sense of ownership and responsibility to her obligations and it is not uncommon to find her leading by example and rolling up her shirt sleeves with the rest of her team to get a job done. Being highly organized allows her to meet important project deadlines and track mission critical objectives. Her enthusiasm and sense of duty also act as natural encouragement in encouraging the team to complete tasks and delivering timely outcomes.

As a final note from everyone at the company we sincerely wish to thank Cynthia Tran for her significant contribution to the business and wish her well as she enters her next year of study.

Regards

Megumi Hosaka

December, 2018 To Whom It May Concern, It has been my pleasure to have worked with Lily Tran during her internship at NBBJ. Lily joined our team in September, 2018 and worked with us through December of 2018. She immediately became an integral part of the team, participating in and supporting every aspect of a very significant project. Lily’s work is consistently excellent. She is curious and willing to learn. Lily dives into whatever her assignment is, asks questions when needed and delivers on expectations. I have every confidence that Lily will continue to grow and develop through her remaining studies, and become a valuable professional. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Lily again in the future. Should you have any specific or additional questions regarding my experience with Lily, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Sincerely,

Suzanne Carlson, Principal NBBJ scarlson@nbbj.com 212-739-7246

R i ve r C h o re o INDIVIDUAL FINAL - Semester 2B 2018

R I PA R I A N Z O N E Co-ordinated by Lola Sheppard and Jane Hutton

River Choreo uses the insertion of walls and plat-

forms to manipulate and showcase the agency and dynamism of water through a sequence of hidden spaces. This experiential performance of water works to create temporal spaces as the rivers soft edges eb to form temporal sediment platforms. In tandem, the harsh and violent water juxtapose the captivated serenity of the platforms. . The water showcases its power through sound, speed and movement through choreographed moves. This kinetic energy is cultivated and shifted into electrical energy for the city of Cambridge. The hydraulic moves used and manipulated consist of: eddies, and riffles.

TAKESHI HOSAKA ARCHITECTS Residential project.

Shibumi is a residential house designed for a small

S i l h o u e tte COLLABORATIVE PROJECT - Semester 2A 2017

THE FUNCTION OF AFFECT Co-ordinated by David Correa and Derek Revington

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.

C h i a ro s c u ro INDIVIDUAL FINAL - Semester 2A 2017

THE FUNCTION OF AFFECT Co-ordinated by David Correa and Derek Revington

Chiaroscuro is a Film Noir museum illuminated by

the light created by the projection of black & white 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.

Pow Wow A rb o u r COLLABORATIVE - Semester 2B 2018

MISSISSAUGAS OF THE NEW CREDIT FIRST NATION Co-ordinated by Paul Dowling and John Mcminn

A group of eleven students built an arbour over the

course of four months for an upcoming pow wow in Hagersville, Ontario. The arbour was designed by a preceding class and consists of columns that support a large outer ring, lathes connected in a crossing curved form to mimic a dream catcher, and an inner ring to receive the lathes. The outer ring was made from pieces of wood that needed to be finished, and the glue laminated together onto form work to create massive curved and angled beams. The lathes were steamed fresh cut ash wood connected to the outer ring by steel brackets.
