urban voids The project studies open spaces within the city which appear as a consequence or an after-thought of transport infrastructure. In a city as rich in traffic networks as Shanghai, these spaces occur frequently and permeate the dense uban fabric. They remain unutilized, often unrecognized expanses of residual space. Undervalued and outside of the realm of traditional land-use, these spaces constitute an opportunity for improving the connectivity of public spaces in Shanghai. context

The project focuses on the case study of a particularly important traffic node along Henan South Road, where it intersects with two of the most important transport infrastructure arteries of the city: Yan’an road, an elevated highway, and Renmin Road, which connects to tunnels on each side. The buildings along this fragment of the route have a variety of programs. network

Along the fragment of the case study, there are many voids which provide an opporunity for intervention. These voids create a network of public spaces which generate quality connector spaces through a consistent geometry and material palette

MW spatial concepts

The research on public spaces describes the behaviours and spatial qualities which characterize frequented spaces in the city. Understanding the qualities required of a useful, active public space in Shanghai allows us to design relevant new spaces for these behaviours. This series of spatial iterations represents a variety of possible adaptations of Urban Voids to generate public space in relation to common behaviour patterns.

two crossings, one bridge The bridge is located in Midden-Delfland, a farmland polder between Delft and Rotterdam. and along one of the most important highways in the Netherlands, the A13. It is an important new connection for cyclists, pedestrians and wildlife, enabling continuity between networks on either side of the road and reducing the East-West fragmentation of the landscape. The project aims at preserving a visual connection between pedestrians and the wildlife crossing and a physical division between cyclists and other users. It does so by crossing the highway through two spans which are sphysically separate, but visually continuous and unified. As such, it is two crossings, one bridge. The bridge serves as a gate for Delft, marking the approach to the city. Instead of making a statement through monumentality as a superstructure, the bridge is a landmark by experience. Instead of being an object on the site, it becomes an element of landscape. It is intended not to be understood as a single image, but rather perceived in a dynamic way, through the movement of users on, under and through the bridge.

park for irish memory While building the Victoria Bridge in the mid-19th century, workers inadvertently uncovered a mass grave where 6 000 Irish victims of a major typhus epidemic were buried. Today, the site remains an important symbolic place for Montréal’s Irish community. The site of the intervention is a 12 000 m2 lot, currently used for parking, under which the bodies are presumed to be buried. The project proposes a memorial site and the establishment of an Irish History Museum, which will also function as a cultural center and green space in the developing neighborhood of Griffintown, thus bridging the past and future of the community. The proposal is driven by 3 notions which give form to the intervention: identity the transposition of a strong community

identity to the definition of architectural space;

temporality the link between the past, present and

future of the community and its context;

place the importance of the site and the memory of

its soil.

The result is a proposal for a park, within which the complex program of the project is divided into “floating” pavilions, linked by an elevated corten steel path. The work in this comprehensive studio was executed in teams of two. We both had input in each drawing & cooperated in all aspects of the project. I did have a greater role in conceptual design & in the preparation of presentations, whereas my partner was more invested in executing the models.

the notion of temporality is embodied through the vegetation of the site. as time passes and the neighborhood evolves, so does the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role as green space. the usersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; experience of the site varies through the day, the seasons and the time of year as the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facade goes from reflective to transparent, as the trees change color and as they grow, respectively.

the notion of place is emphasized by elevating the buildings and circulation paths, leaving the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history symbolically untouched and its soil minimally disturbed. the project is a park: a place, rather than a building on a site.

aperture & protrusion Digital tools offer a powerful territory of expression and enable the development of new tectonics. This project is a formal excercise which revisits the traditional segmentation between ornament & architecture. ornament

An ornament ro surface condition, here a set of doors at the Mont-Royal metro station, was selected as a starting point. mesh

Digitalization of the ornament generated a mesh, producing an abstracted representation of the initial object and its geometries, and inspiring the development of rationalized forms. object

Patterns with the most potential were extrapolated and integrated into the design of an object, modelled in three dimensions. parametricity

This abstract object’s geometries inspired an architectural system. Encrypting the system as a script generated a gradient of iterations, a multiplicity of solutions in response to the defined parameters of aperture and protrusion. When these variable parameters are linked to an attractor point, or “sun”, the result becomes analogous to a dynamic building shading system, altering its form in response to its environment.

making camp Granada, Nicaragua, once a thriving commercial capital, still displays exceptional examples of colonial architecture. However, much of it is in poor condition, as is the case of the San Juan de Dios hospital, built in 1898 and abandoned a century later. This project proposes a renewal of the site through minimal intervention, the repair of existing walls and the construction of simple structures, in order to preserve the unique qualities of the site as a beautiful ruin. The project caters to a need for simple, low budget accomodations for travelers from abroad which place them in direct contact with the otherness, the contrast between their origin and their destination. The proposal is intended as a cultural immersion, an introduction to the climate and to the travelerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community. Notions central to the devising of this proposal consist of: climate as an opportunity for lighweight, simple,

and ephemeral exterior sleeping space;

deconstruction as opposed to construction, or the

creation of an architecture through open space rather than the construction of walls.

The project was not only represented, but also developped through the method of collage. Intended as an exploration of the medium, the design of the project was informed by the particularities of the graphic device, enabling a more atmospheric, haptic & poetic approach.

bridging the wupper The aim of the studio was the design of a building in Wuppertal, Germany. The city is an unremarkable small post-industrial city near Cologne, were it not for the fact that it is the location of a suspended tramway system, a prototype of a kind, which straddles the Wupper river like a steel reptile. The project aimed at revitilizing the area and initiating a new industrial wave of innovation. The program chosen for the building was that of decoupled aquaponics: one pavilion for aquaculture, one for hydroponics, connected to one another in a continuous flow. the path as link

The surroundings of the building generate a public space on either side of the river, connecting its shores and activating the block. Spaces for workshop and visitors bring the public into the building. the river as park

Currently, citizens have no access to the riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge. The project enables a vertical connection from street level to river level and opens up the river as public park. the bridge as conduit The required programmatic flows between pavilions run through a service bridge, which provides the steel structure for the pedestrian bridge above. The project is characterized by a meaningful integration of architectural and technical (structural/ mechanical) decisions.
