Environmental Design OCAD U HONOURABLE MENTION
Inhabit is an academic project that is designed as an alternative architecture that fosters better relationships between people, animals and their natural environment.
organism of site Inhabit is the new facility for the Toronto Humane Society in Toronto. The new building takes a different approach to an animal care establishment by creating a strong foundation in the initial stages of the architecture that speaks to the complexities of human animal interaction and create a place where both people and animals that dwell in the site will be able to thrive and build a natural habitat in the downtown core of the city.

This project was initiated by the Institute Without Boundaries and created with a group of six designers. The interior rendering, elevations and inspirational imagery were aspects that I consulted on but did not execute, the rest I was involve with on a creative and production level.

kinoko Kinoko is an installation for Toronto’s Nuit Blanche. Here is the featured artist statement by Casey Wong, “At once icon and ideological platform, teahouses are to Japanese architects what chairs are to Western architects.
