The REcentre The goal of the REcentre is to reflect and react to surrounding relationships. Therefore dictating a program that creates an internal relationship between the surrounding spaces. The bistro and the Chinese restaurant excavate an outdoor seating space, thanks to the community kitchen. The downtown residents now have a park for their families to play in, thanks to the adjoining daycare centre. And the learning centre now benefits from the REcentre’s chess park and library. These public spaces, like the rooftop garden, the playground, the market, and the chess park all reflect the needs of the Cambridge common. Play, Learn, Trade, and Nourish.


RE: Relational excavation. Excavating Urban Relationships. Re-centering focus on joint space.

An elongated stair and walkway travel throughout the 4 levels of the centre. Stopping at a reception area and leading you to either the auditorium or a continuation of the walkway. This walkway leads the user up to the roof garden, with a stop on the third floor along the way to gain access to other spaces, like the practice studio.

The Split Geode Project Program

The Split Geode project was part of a project called the Junk Space Project. The goal of the project was to create a housing complex within a ‘junk space’. The site chosen was a lot of land that many commercial and residential buildings backed onto. Most of the buildings being backed onto had no acess to the space. The goal of the Split Geode was to create a hard exterior shell on the outside and a nice welcome core on the inside. The intention of this was to invite people to visit and take part in community events.


WINTER SUN PATH


Pop-up Playground Project Program Designed for the 2013 SSEF competition with the theme of Pop-up Architecture. The idea for a Pop-up playground was to create usable space in unused spaces. The Pop-Up Playground brings to the awkward spaces of a city a sense of purpose and a feeling of fun. The structure is movable and easily constructed to allow a sense of life to temporarily, and (potentially permanently) draw attention to the potential of the hidden gems in a city. The Honest Ed’s Alleyway was a very good example of ‘empty’ space. The structure with its vibrant colours and simple shapes invites people to spend time there. Be it an outdoor concert, a jamming session, or just a place to sit and talk, the Honest Ed’s Alley can convert itself into a cosmopolitan hub. The Spadina Avenue Bus Stop illustrates how a very open and beautiful strip of sidewalk in the city that goes mainly unused can become a pedestrian friendly hangout space. Spadina avenue comprises two lanes of traffic separated by a lane way for street cars. The strip of sidewalk left of that is the perfect opportunity for a bus stop space. The panel assembly can be formed to make a combination of seating areas, which allow for the appropriate amount of seating and storage to be provided. The Brickworks is situated in a very industrial and cultured part of Toronto. It would serve as a great place for a movie ound has space for seating, speakers, and a projector would night or a nighttime social gathering. The Pop Up Playground allow for a multitude of great events.


The Pop-up playground uses a system of tracks and sliding panels to create a structure that can morph to its surroundings. The panels can move across the tracks, and bend at 90 degree angles to allow for the creation of tables, benches, shelving, etc. Frame Connection, Exploded Axo
