PROJECT TYPE: Studio 4, Community Centre PUBLICATION: Building 22 Edition 16 LOCATION: Plano, Illinois DATE: Winter 2016

The Fishbowl is a visitor’s centre for Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Farnsworth House, by reinterpreting the original transparent floating volume in its own expression. Onlookers can clearly identify the main entrance and the centre’s functions by mere observation. Three sides of the enclosure are glass, with an additional glass floor above the creek. The building is a juxtaposition of the built environment to nature, embedded into the earth while hovering over the organic landscape. It is a fishbowl on display for all to see.

Continuum was designed to enhance the existing elements of the site, while respecting the building’s designated heritage values (chapel interior and building facade). The Allée of Trees is the main character-defining element serving as the main concept for the architectural design. The new atrium connects the existing Allée of Trees through the building by new tree columns and to the river. The three tree columns have a direct relationship with the Oblates history, representing the three founding fathers: Father Duvic, Father Villeneuve, and Father Roy.

URBAN RE-DEVELOPMENT, HONOURABLE MENTION A

i

PROJECT TYPE: ULI Competition 2018 LOCATION: Toronto, Ontario DATE: Winter 2018 TEAM: 4 members

The Seam is a master-plan strategy that revitalizes Toronto’s formerly industrial east Donlands area by creating a vibrant mixed-use district. Punctuated by cutting-edge architecture and creative public art, the site will leverage existing proximity to major employment centres, transit infrastructure, and natural assets to create a new development area that will be instrumental to Toronto’s wider city-building strategy.

POPULATION GROWTH 2016

2041

Toronto’s population will

double over the next 25 years 250,000 population increase

475,000 population increase

The largest growth is projected to take place

The team comprised of 5 members with 3 multi-disciplinary backgrounds: architecture, planning, and business. Working together with the strength of the combined disciplines, the proposal was a well-researched design that required the careful study of planning laws and a business proforma. The Seam was conceived to join, link, and connect multiple goals together. Imagined to be part of a larger employment corridor, The Seam is a connection between ideas and action. It will provide ample office space for new businesses, particularly tech firms wanting to be located close to Sidewalk Labs. The site will include two innovation labs and a cultural center. In addition, the site’s integration of naturalized lands with the creation of a key green network along the Don River embodies the connection between social and environmental sustainability. A landscaped park running up the western edge of the site will double as both a flood zone protection mechanism and provide green space for recreational use. (cont.)

THE SEAM

Finally, The Seam is a connection between people and civic life. The main civic plaza at the base of the cultural center will provide an open space for live music and outdoor events all year round. Pedestrian paths will provide a direct connection from the cultural centre to the park, increasing access to recreational opportunities for families and enhancing the riverside as a public amenity. Overall, the Seam will bring over 1000 residential units to the community and over 650,000 square feet of office, retail and cultural space. The value of the land will increase from $61M to $477M over 10 years of development, with an unleveraged IRR of 29%. Through thoughtful planning and development practices, The Seam will be able to transform industrial land into a lively, mixed use development by connecting environments, neighborhoods and cultures together. In addition to improving the community it will also improve the value of the land by over 500%.

THE UPLIFT PROJECT

REVITALIZATION OF LESTER PARK i

PROJECT TYPE: Urban Park Revival LOCATION: Portland, Oregon

TEAM: 2 members DATE: Summer 2015

A

Uplift is a visionary design project for the revitalization of Lester Park, drawing from the landscape of Utah as its inspiration. It is based from elements of Utah’s land, seamlessly incorporating the existing elements of the park. There are three key areas of the proposed design: the Pavilion, Garden, and Playground. The Pavilion, resting in the centre, is the focal area of the park. It rises from the ground and invites visitors to climb on its vegetated roof. It is a semiclosed structure that transforms with an unfolding cover. A community green house is located on the side for learning about the way vegetables are grown and open for the public to use. One of the design intents was site integration, in order not to subtract from the landscape. The proposal was careful crafted to retain the existing trees on the site, as well as the existing library and its expansion plans.

PROJECT TYPE: Professional Experience LOCATION: Bagan, Myanmar DATE: May 2016 - Ongoing DATA: Collected by Carleton University student team led by Dr. Mario Santana and Ph.D student Davide Mezzino, May 2016 A

The objective of the current project is to process the digital information collected from Bagan, Myanmar for its future conservation and preservation. The site has over 3000 temples and is pending for UNESCO World Heritage designation. The scope of work includes four temples, with a Building Information Model (BIM) and detailed drawings created for one temple. A variety of different digital models are being produced, including photogrammetry and point cloud models. The final goal is the creation of a publication to explain the methodology of technical work, to display drawings of the temples’ present conditions, and to increase understanding on the required steps for future preservation work.

COMMUNITY CULTURAL HUB + ARTISTS’ LOFT i

PROJECT TYPE: M. Arch Studio 1, Community Cultural Hub (Artists’ Loft) LOCATION: Toronto, Ontario DATE: Fall 2017 A

Maker’s Mart is a project derived from exploring geometric forms. It began with the creation of a roof module and achieved its ultimate form by refinings its aggregation. In short, it is a geometric exercise. My module is a tetrahedron truncated with a cylinder. Its aggregation was varied in size and angle opening at the top, and lastly the direction of the cylinder. Due to the last manipulation, columns rest on the building’s exterior. The overall concept of the plan was arranged in a radial pattern, with the tension pulling from each corner and from the column fin to the ground.

An S-shaped circulation is created on the site, where a person would enter from the main south entrance (bordering a main arterial road). Workshops are located on the ends to allow for brightly lit artist spaces. A feeling of ascension is created from the modules increasing in size and angle while moving towards the centre. A main open auditorium is located in the centre - this is a flexible space for market, presentations, or any events that the community may need. To ensure a proper daylighting strategy, window openings are created along the one side of the module. This allows for a brightly lit space throughout each workshop and main space.

As a third scale, the structure is developed on a 5x5m grid, divided up or down. Supporting this is a hybrid wood and steel space frame left exposed on the interior and exterior. The space frame is spaced at 1.25x1.25x1.25m. It consists of 2 layers above the main space.

The site is the first scale transformed, where the project is arranged as a central node within the park. Secondly, the plan was adapted, where the pool acts as the centre. To enable the weaving of programs, stereotomic and tectonic relationships were introduced. The earth would push up parts of the program to merge the lattice together. A juxtaposition is created by the lightweight lattice frame of the tectonic supported by the heavy stereotomic of the earth.

Anchoring the rooms is a central playground with an underground cistern. Woven bamboo partitions are used as collapsible walls, which open towards the center or to adjacent rooms. This creates an adaptable plan with numerous configurations, where children can freely play. Structure wise, the bamboo column is connected to a gabion foundation (acting as a base isolator to absorb seismic forces). Two permanent wall types are used within the bamboo frame: wattle and daub + gabion. The gabion walls are located on the west to protect from harsh winds, enclosing the building’s core.
