ARCHITECHTONICS Nested into the landscape, this pavilion is an experience of elemental transition that moves between rigidity and fluidity, openness and enclosure, the synthetic and natural. The pavilion is based on a simple parti, and as a whole is a self-explanatory structure. A curved-wood member “nest” and a concrete passage/walkway are the main features. The concrete passage acts to retain a sloping landscape while permitting movement between both levels of the landscape via a curving walkway and staircase. The wooden “nest” plays with light and a sense of buoyancy to contrast the weight of the landscape, it defines the boundaries of the pavilion: being permeable from the outside, it urges individuals inward to explore. This project was drafted by hand, and refined for print.

AN ARTIST’S RETREAT This project is designed as a private studio for a visual artist in residence at Taylor Lake, in North Dumfires, Ontario. The studio’s primary goals are to create an environment which nurtures the artistic process and product through the use of light and programme, and to also be sensitive to the surrounding environment. Light is channelled through use of apeture, and views are given and restircted based on programmatic requrements. The structure gently mimicks the way the local flora steps back from the lake, the colours from the local landscape are drawn into the building through the choices of materials. Located back from the thick natural wetland that exists lakeside, the structure gestures toward the rewarding views and calm of the lake with a small seasonal studio that rests at the and of an elevated walking path leading to the water’s edge. This project was drafted by hand (left), and refined for publication (right).

WORMS SYNAGOGUE In depth research was done in order to study and produce a 1:100 scale model of a select religious structure. The model was to be produced with special attention paid to the historical evolution of the building. This was accomplished through hinging the model along an imporant axis and through the definition of relevant layers of the building’s history by a careful use of materials. In partnership with Mona Dai, Evan Brock, Shu Pu Lui, Chelsea Qiu, and Tonks Chen

HABITAT HOUSE Designed for Habitat for Humanity’s “The Sustainable Home” 2011-2012 Competition. The Habitat House is located in Cambridge, Ontario on an greyfield site. The house was designed as a unique prefabricated 2-storey family house which provides a comfortable, efficient and stylish but cost-effective lifestyle. It smartly considers constraints on budget and program which reflect the guiding principles of Habitat for Humanity. The building’s main focus was to incooperate sustainable and modular principles. Special consideration was paid to the use of materials which would allow the house to be easily constructed, and fitted with select mechanical systems which permit the house to operate at low cost year round. In partnership with Vantar Angardi

SOLAR STUDY The Habitat House was designed in order to reduce heat-gain through the summer months in order to reduce cooling costs, as well as to and admit substantial light throughout the winter.

VENTILATION STUDY Ventilation was designed to take advantage of the prevalent westerly winds in the Cambridge area by way of the addition of a wind-scoop/seating feature on the rooftop terrace. The stack effect is also utilized through a main stairwell that is open to operable clerestorey windows on the upper floor, operable windows throughout the building assist in drawing in cooler air. The house is also fitted with a unique air conditioning system which utilizes non-peak hour electricity.

HEATING STUDY Heating of the building is achieved through the use of a roof-top solar heat pump which distributed the sun’s energy evenly throughout the building by way of radiant floor heating. Incoming air for ventilation is tempered through the use of earth tubes which are buried 4 m beneath the building and warmed by a secondary line from the Solar heat pump. The House is separated into three independent zones which are isolated for the energy saving benefits. The thermal mass of the Hemcrete wall acts as a thermal buffer throughout the day and evening.

GREENHOUSE ARCHIVE

Ninkasi’s garden, located in the Portlands of Toronto, is a strategy for small scale agricultural development and remediation in an urban context, disguised in the clothes of a Beer Garden. The project covers the stages of species selection, quantification and distribution while examining the delicate relationships between plant, land, and person. The site’s edges dissolve with the beginning stages of staged phytoremediation, while the interior of the site expresses it’s artificiality by way of ‘potting’ the larger scale cereal crops in sourced soil. Indulging Toronto’s beer culture, the garden houses a variety of local, global, and site produced beer. Connectivity to the garden allows a unique interaction between patrons, and the beer-ingredients over the various stages of their life cycle.

GROGAN FORD Designed as a unique take on the Ford Millennium program, Grogan Ford was developed in order to meet the municipal commercial building requirements of Watford, ON, while satisfying the design criteria of the Ford Millennium program. The resulting design was a facade with a historic flavour that was reminicent of the first and second Ford automotive factories.

My role in the execution of this design concept was the full modelling of the dealership in Revit, and the production of an excess of eight iterations for presentation to Ford and the client. Associated work included research, analysis of precedent, assistance with design development, and production of final drawings for client review.

QUICK LANE DESIGN CRITERIA DOCUMENT - COVER

The Quick Lane - Design Criteria Document is a published standard that guides the design and programme for new construction or renovations to existing Quick Lane Centers. The document is distributed across Canada for this purpose.

Voie Ra pide Ă Votr eville DOCUMENT DE CRITĂ&#x2C6;RES DE DESIGN VOTREVILLE, VOTRE PROVINCE version : Mars 2012 No. Du Project 8900.000

My role was to update both the French and English Design Criteria Documents in entirety with predetermined information, including price updates, contact information updates, and a complete reassessment and re-execution of the French document. Work was executed with the Adobe Suite using pre-existing documents. Layouts were also changed to suit. In addition, a Canada-wide list of approved materials and suppliers was developed for distribution with the Ford Millennium programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Design Criteria Document.

FORM/ FUNCTION Malleable solids. Frozen motion. Glass and metal provide me with balance. Being able to concretely work out a form, an idea, and a concept through the give and take that happens during the act of creating. Instant Gratification. The perfect balance to an increasingly ephemeral and digitized world.
