I am a third year student in Architectural Science at Ryerson University, particularly interested in the integration of sustainable and conceptual designs, with an emphasis of new materiality through creative and technical methods. I stay open-minded, creative, and easy-going through my design process. I work well and adapt quickly during collaborative projects and in different workspace environments. I enjoy travelling and immersing myself in different cultures and languages. I am looking for a 4-8 month paid internship.

FLOATING FORM

Ryerson Culinary Academy Site: North East Corner of Jarvis St. and Wellesley St, Toronto, Ontario Professor: Garth Norbraten Fall Term, Design Studio 2016 The concept of the culinary school was to highlight the contrast between solid and transparent entities. The private areas are perceived as a solid, heavy form placed onto the transparent public domain. The external stairs act as a separator for the public versus restricted areas, as well as create a movement within and outside the building. The stairs go through the building in the exterior and interior. The terracotta panels clad the building, creating a gentle complement to the surrounding buildings.

EXPLOSION

Academy for the Distilling Arts Site: Mill St and Trinity St, The Distillery District, Toronto, Ontario Professor: Jennifer McArthur Fall Term, Integration Studio I 2017 The design for the distillery focuses on three areas where visitors experience alcohol to create a gastronomical experience, enticing the senses and emotions, allowing each visitor to experience the spaces differently. The restaurant; a low, dark ambience, allowing an intimacy between visitors. The bar; a tall, space, allowing for chance encounters and encouraging conversations. And finally, the tasting area; a smaller space with views to the Distillery District for people to taste the alcohol. Each of these three spaces are created to ensure the visitor experiences them differently and allowing the product to shape the space and the space to shape the product.From the outside, each space creates a unique form which responds to its function and seems to disconnect from the building.

The vodka and whiskey distillery incorporate a multitude of functions that benefit the selling, branding, and image of the distillery. Each area focuses on specific atmospheres, unique from its counterparts. The tasting envelopes its surroundings, acting as a simple bridge point of knowledge, the bar mimics a sleek, modern experience, and the restaurant allows for a dark yet comfortable and familiar surrounding.

MERGING

Research Cabin

Site: Evergreen Brickworks, Toronto, Ontario Professor: Masha Etkind Winter Term, Design Studio I 2016 This small scale project focuses on the revitalization of the land. The main researcher is a botanist, with the intent of restoring the entire area surrounding the cabin. The cabin is located at the edge of Brickworks, in an area where the runoff from the steep topography has made a great negative impact on the wildlife The building is separated into three sections, mimicking the intense topography change and causing minimal damage to the landscape. The main purpose of the research cabin was to elevate the building and place gabion walls to help filter runoff greywater and irrigate the land to help its growth. Part of the greywater would be used within the building.

Performing Arts Centre & Residential Site: North East Corner of Church St. and Shuter St, Toronto, Ontario Professor: George Kapelos Winter Term, Design Studio III 2017

In a high density city, the need for community housing to fit specific needs is crucial. The building is created to combine the performing artists living conditions with a proper area to practice and perform. The communal residential units provide a sense of inclusion that multi-residential towers do not have. The aim for this project is to create informal and formal spaces, and merge the connection between lifestyle, hobby, and profession into a single entity.
