A WRITER’S RESIDENCE basswood + pencil on vellum

Situated on Taylor Lake as part of an artists’ community, A Writer’s Residence is a temporary location for writers to reflect and be inspired. Although it is private and isolated, the option to mingle with other artists is there, for they are only footsteps away. The simplicity of the space and white interior provide a refreshing space for the writer and sits in contrast to the earthy heavily wooded surroundings. Upon arrival, the residence dematerializes and channels the views out to the lake. The writer can work anywhere in the unit from the bedroom to the living space, which has a lovely view of the sunset on the lake. The option of working at the end of the deck in a sheltered space is also provided. The pod opens up in the summer to allow evaporative cooling from the lake and is also equipped with a heater for the colder winter months. Design Studio | Rick Andrighetti | Fall 2010

STEREOTOMIC TO TECTONIC plaster cast + card stock

The concept of iteration was practiced through the morphing of a stereotomic plaster cast model of voids and solid spaces to a final tectonic unit which was assembled from a set of drawings that underwent a series of mathematical transformations. Design Studio | Maya Przybylski | Winter 2011

BASILICA DI SAN CLEMENTE plywood, mill board, corrugated paper, matteboard, taskboard, basswood, wood dowels, acrylic paint - hand crafted + lasercut

The Basilica di San Clemente is a palimpsest of religion and culture. Excavations are ongoing in the 1st century Roman layer of housing, warehouses, and a Mithraeum. Above this are fragments of a 4th century basilica which was lopped off to later carry a 12th century basilica. This 1:100 reconstruction is part of a City of Temples and will sit alongside other places of worship. Group members: Carly Kandrack, Emily Li, Cynthia Eng, Trimira Garach, Paniz Maoyeri

WATERSIDE GREENS - HABITAT FOR HUMANITY Revit, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop

Located in the temperate climate of downtown Galt, this Habitat for Humanity neighbourhood focuses on the environment and accesibility. It is simple, decent and affordable. Not only is it conveniently located within walking distance to public transportation and major roads, residents here can also enjoy close proximity to the beautiful Grand River. Each house holds a green roof which reduces storm water runoff that is then collected in water cisterns to be used for irrigation and plumbing. The bioswale controls storm water runoff and reduces erosion to the landscape. Drought resistant indigenous sedum has been planted on the green roof as well as in the landscape to reduce water usage and prevent the heat island effect. In collaboration with Anjie Liu.

section C - ventilation The diagram above shows the path for natural ventilation when the operable windows are cranked open and ceiling fans are in operation. The roofing over the window simulates a wind catcher to funnel air into the kitchen and entrance spaces. The houses are constructed with Thermapan structurally insulated panels (SIPs). SIPs are used from the foundations to the roof, including the walls and flooring system. The wall panels are a modular 1219.2 x 2438.4 mm (4’ x 8’). The attached units reduce cladding costs and provides additional insulation to all units.
