01 Arctic Spine

The Arctic Spine is a proposal for a new province wide arcticutilidor; a pathway that carries and provides accessibility to basic utilities for living and work. The project begins by establishing a network across the North West Territories investing in the potential for a food harvesting and trade network. At a local scale, the processing infrastructure, the port, and community programs become hubs through the city, and the utilidor, acting as a spine, works with the already established urban plan and connects them. The Utilidor not only provides access to hot water, sewage lines, electricity and heat, but also has congregation points where these utilities can be used uniquely and easily to the benefit of the community. There are ‘pathways’, ‘surfaces’, ‘sheds’ and ‘shacks’ that all encourage citizens to ‘plug-in’ and use the utilidor for personal business or industry support. The Cooperative Utilidor pathway has a subtle presence and can be used year round. The utilidor project was later recognized and published in Canada’s ‘Onsite’ magazine on relevant rural studies.

02 Sauerbruch Hutton

Sauerbruch Hutton is a Berlin based international architecture office that works on a range of building, planning, art, cultural, community and city design projects. The practice focuses on the creation of functional, sensual and conscientious architecture with individuality and personality in both new and existing contexts that integrate technical innovation and a strong synthesis of colour. This internship at Sauerbruch Hutton was spent working directly on international competitions varying in program and size, and all in distinct contexts. Work included all phases of competition work, including site documentation, schematic and massing design, 2D and 3D documentation, visualization through rendering and animation, facade and detail variations, as well as creating presentations and engaging in office meetings and charettes.

03 Pull-Towers

Pull-Towers began a as single mass that has been cut into two unique pieces and pulled apart. As a goal to create a space for both office users and students from the near-by University of Toronto, the challenge was designing a campus, inherently designing a user-friendly space that is comfortable and accessible to everyone. With an emphasis on learning, office program connects in with the students education through the use of the horizontal bridges; sharing space and experience; creating a fun and friendly environment for students, workers and Torontonians alike. Interaction, education and partnership are visible. Pull-towers puts play on display.

04 Kohn Pederson Fox

Kohn Pederson Fox is a New York based global office with a diverse portfolio of both public and private work. An internship at Kohn Pederson Fox provided a focus on urban centres and exposure to the work and specifications required to successfully build and engage in design of and within major cities. With exposure to a wide range of projects from architecture, interior, programming and master planning, work consisted of schematic design studies to construction documentation work, as well as being a part of revisions, reviews and environmental studies on projects underway in the office. The larger part of the internship focused on one project in the city of Vancouver, Canada, working directly with specific site conditions on the Ocean front, and the surrounding protected historic district of the city.

05 Hotel Mercato

“Hotel Mercato” consists of two markets, one ‘permanent’ and the other ‘permeable’. It emphasizes communal living, hosting a harvest table and common lounges on each floor of the building. There is an extensive vegetable garden and an herbal garden that relates to the restaurant, lounge and herbal-spa; essentially everything used on site is made on site. At Hotel Mercato, you are exposed to the culture that is Cambridge. Between visitor and city, every player is involved.

Nuit Blanche Installation An installation designed for Toronto’s all night art exhibition, Nuit Blanche, “Test Tubes” was a recycled project creating a new urban landscape within the fabric of the city centre. The project consisted of working with a series of cardboard tubes and plywood connections to create tree-like-canopies that can connect and create an instantly intimate place to transform unused or undesirable space in an urban centre. Fabric panels were added to the structures to allow and block site lines through the installation to the surrounding context; creating an outdoor living room. Using available recycled materials and unique but simple design connections, the project could be built and dismantled in less than a day; allowing for impromptu social interaction. The project engaged itself with the public as a form of urban park where crowds would loiter and wander - an exteriorinterior space. The project was installed on two separate occasions for public art events in Ontario, Canada, and was published in the Toronto Star newspaper after its first review at Toronto’s Nuit Blanche Exhibition in October 2011. Completed With: Andrew Brown, Sarah Gunawan, Meaghan Murray, Matt Lawson, Tristan Van Leur Physical Installation - Sept. - Dec. 2011

07 Raw Design

Raw Design is a young Canadian architectural office focused on adaptive reuse of design and space. Engaging in the popular culture of high density housing design in Ontario, Raw Design considers the greater context of a project, focusing specifically on community impact and volunteering time and work to neighborhoods in need. This internship consisted of both competition work and volunteer design proposals for communities and neighborhoods in the city of Toronto. Massing and schematic design work, as well as community and group meetings allowed for a personal connection to the project work, and a clear emphasis on site documentation and conscious design when working on 2D and 3D documentation. All phases of design were completed in addition to volunteering with the neighborhoods and sites under study and design.

08 Sukka Pavilion

The modern sukka is a pavilion based on the temporary shelters that were used for homes during the 40 years Hebrews spent travelling the desert. A creation demanding human interaction, it is open to nature, but allows one to feel the protection of a simple refuge.

09 Pollock Chair

“I have no fear of making changes, reworking a piece or destroying the image, because the painting has a life of its own, I only live around it.” -Jackson Pollock A chair designed for Jackson Pollock is a working chair. He moved vigorously around the edges of the canvas, it’s technique combined the movement of his body, over which he had control, the viscous flow of paint, the force of gravity, and the absorption of colour into the canvas. The design of chair for Pollock considered his body movements, desiring to be something that would facilitate his work and painting. The design transformed into a project that he could have fabricated at home; wood sections bound by bolts on a set of wheels to allow movement and lunging in any direction over his artwork. With its extension piece, Pollock could reach out onto the canvas without rising from his seat. Inspired by Pollock’s life and art, this chair is a manifesto of how he worked. The Pollock Chair was selected to be displayed in Toronto’s Annual “Come Up to My Room” Art Exhibition in Jan. 2012 Completed With: Meaghan Murray December 2011 Rhino, Wood and Shop Work

10 Urban Studies

Drawing on location, inside or out, is a way to capture what we see through direct observation. Architecture and the state of a city changes dramatically through time, use and occupation, and upon my travels I have recorded these surroundings and places through the form of urban studies and sketches. The most beautiful thing about architecture is the current state of use and decay it is in - and sketching, like photography, is a means to capture this temporal quality. Varying in scale, style and medium, these drawings are a record of time and place, and are truthful to the current state which we live and see.
