My name is Meghan Won, and I am currently a second year student at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. I believe architecture is the art of creating an experience that is consumed, not just through the senses, but through living. As a

self-motivated

individual, I am a keen team worker and take great care in what I produce. I continually strive to learn as much as I can with every opportunity. My passion for creating and problem-solving fuels my ambitions in the world of architecture and design. I am eager for an opportunity to learn, apply, and improve my skills alongside skilled professionals.

CENOTAPH:

AN INTROSPECTION

The vast atmospheric volume is a memorial space to those who have lost themselves. A space in which the experience is unique to the individual, as it is a catalyst for introspective interaction. A solid monument of mass confronts one as they approach the Cenotaph, before being encompassed by the light contained within. As one passes through the space, the vertical fins that fall around the walk way, begin to expand and slowly reveal the encapsulating space. The bright void is revealed as the walls peel from one’s vision, and exposes an encapsulating series of mirrors. Standing on a transparent floor just below the bisection of the sphere, reflecting images and light from all angles inside the immersive sphere disorientates and overwhelms the senses. While approaching the center of the volume, one begins to digest the infinitesimal echoing of reflections and becomes aware of themselves both as an individual and in context of their surroundings. The Cenotaph allow visitors to reflect consciously on their physical existence and their own consciousness in a vacuum.

CENOTAPH

The spherical void is carved from vertical fins that extend downwards creating a network of grand hallways.

A secondary path

cuts through the massive walls creating a passage way along the other axis. Receding circular cuts in the walls carve out a void that periodically open the compressive halls. As one approaches the underbelly of the Cenotaph, the vertical walls once again pull away, creating a void directly underneath the sphere looming over the space. The portion of the Cenotaph that dips into the network is constructed of one-way mirror panels between the fins, allowing for the visitors beneath a view inside the glowing orb.The form lights the open space beneath and gives a different view and relationship into the monument and yourself in the reflections on the surface.

HUB:

A GEODESIC GARDEN

With increasingly dense urbanization, places such as public gardens have become less common. HUB is an open steel structure that supports and fosters an unconventional green space; an attempt to modernize the idea of the public garden. It is a steel skeleton hosting plant matter, bringing together the industrial and the natural. With its modular triangular panels being either planter, screen or glass, its assembly is customizable and can cater to a variety of community uses. The compact dome structure can be easily installed to bring life to any city center. It gives back green space to the area and provides an opportunity for community involvement and activities within the interactive garden.

CARREL:

A MICROINSTITUTION

The Carrel Library is a diverse modern community space that incorporates flexible public space, group and individual work spaces, and houses publicly accessible resources such as books and digital fabrication tools.The building’s form comes from the carrels placed along the perimeter, giving priority views and lighting to the individual inside. The use of contrasting opaque and transparent materials on the serrated exteriors of the carrels gives a unique look to the facade that can vary depending on the viewpoint of the observe. The serrated over hang bends around the corner, inviting the public to engage with the wide side street perpendicular to the main road, and creates a habitable outdoor public space and threshold for the library. April 2017 |1B Design Studio: Donald Mckay Skills used: Rhino, Maxwell, Illustrator, Photoshop


CARREL

The carrels are individual work spaces that are contained with partition walls. The lack of sealed enclosure gives the space a breathable feel, letting light and air filter from the carrels to the inside, whilst keeping a sense of privacy and security. Each carrel looks outwards onto the neighbourhoods and streets, their backs to the activity behind them inside.

DISRUPTION:

AN INTERACTIVE FLOW

Observing water is an elusive and captivating experience, Disruption is an observational study of the flow and behaviors of water that catches our attention. The pedestrian bridge is placed on the preexisting human made dam wall, angled and flat so that water passes over quickly and smoothly. The bridge interrupts the smooth flow where it connects to the wall, allowing water to pass over the glass covered bridge, as well as catching it and redirecting water through the foot path. This disruption constructed allows for the occupants not only to have a new perspective of the water falling over the damn and down the river, but also see how an intervention can change the flow pattern of water and give a chance for further interaction. The acrylic sheet and plaster model aims to capture those different states, and the relationships that the movement of the top layer of water has with interventions and disruptions, whether natural or human imposed.

LIGHTHEADED: A WEARABLE SCULPTURE

Light Headed is a wearable sculpture constructed from a metal cage laced with 125 light bulbs mounted on a helmet. The project explores the relationship between self expression through fashion and the restraints that come with it. The wearer undergoes a transformation when the piece being worn is plugged in, illuminating into a sphere of lights. Unplugged, the piece looks ver y different. The wearer has control in what state they wish to be presented. The wearer becomes the host for the glow of light, only if they chose to be tethered by a power source. 36x36x42cm Materials: Wire mesh, string lights, plastic helmet, zip ties December 2015
