ACADEMIC Office 2020 (2013) The office of today serves its function internally, or through formal channels with other organizations. If the office is to meet the needs of the future, it must learn to draw on the skills and creativity of the community of which it is a part. Achieving this through formal methods is difficult. The strongest solution is natural dialogue and collaboration. The Oakville Civic Work Centre sets the stage for this dialogue to occur between large companies, small businesses, and the public of Oakville. It does this by spatially and programmatically merging public and private spaces.

ACADEMIC Pocket Park (2011) A proposal for Ryerson’s campus, this art market is located in a service lane behind the Interior Design building. The project seeks to make the space function beyond its original intent while not interfering with existing program. Market stalls act as a canopy, shading the space during the day and providing light in the evening. The stalls would showcase work done by students at Ryerson as well as other local artists. A stage and seating curve around the market stalls, creating rest areas to allow visitors a more peaceful perspective of the space.


ACADEMIC Kitchen Machine Project (2010) The final design exercise of a multi-phased project. The task was to use the mechanisms and geometries of a previously studied kitchen machine to create a building component. These kinetic stairs are manually controlled by users. The mechanism of an ice cream scoop has been re-imagined to allow them to retract and extend as space requirements permit.


ACADEMIC Gymnastics Centre (2012) This gymnasium in Toronto is designed for training professional and competitive gymnasts as well as hosting classes and camps for amateurs. Half of the lowermost floorplate is raised, with service spaces tucked beneath. The gymnasium program is arranged radially around the central support which holds raised seating areas for visitors. Glulam arches span the radius of the form, creating a sweeping ceiling suggesting movement to contrast the restful concrete foundation. This tectonic play is meant to mimic the motion matterns of gymnasts. SOUTH ELEVATION

ACADEMIC Ryerson Community Garden (2013) The site for this project is spatially a satellite of the main Ryerson campus. For a community garden to become a major node for the population of Ryerson, it at first seemed that it would need a prime location within the campus core. To overcome this obstacle, the community garden takes principles from Ryerson’s unique approach to campus design and uses them to inform spatial design at various levels. In particular, it plays off of the idea of re-centralization. The garden serves as a major pedestrian artery to the Ryerson campus core while at the same time providing a comprehensive program to function as a strong satellite campus space.

“RE-CENTRALIZATION Strike a balance between decentralization and centralization by proposing a reinvention of the core, creating a vital central zone in the campus precinct, and by investing in the seams of the urban context.” - Ryerson Master Plan
