K’NEX STAIRWAY FABRICATION This exercise involved the investigation of modularity in design through the study of complex components. A few primary parts have been chosen from among found objects, which in this case, are pieces from the K’nex construction set. The quality of each part is first examined and catalogued. The complex and tactile dialogue between the components allows for the fabrication of an intricate aggregate i.e. a staircase. The nature of K’nex lends to an industrial aesthetic that could be imagined as an eclectic addition to an interiors project.

CORAL ARCHITECTURE STUDY For this project, I studied the geometry of a seal coral and recreated it in Grasshopper . A mathematical Enneper surface was used to emulate the base stucture which was then populated with the node geometry. This created an in interesting array of iterations.

TORONTO MAKERS MART For this project, I was tasked with creating and resolving formal geometry in order to create a building that houses a makerspace. The design process started with an excercise of folding paper to study the structural qualities it presents once it is altered.Through a few moves of creasing and folding an ellipsoid piece of paper, I was able to arive at a winged module. This was then placed on the site in a manner that created three distinct access points for users. This exploration focused on creating a seamless and integrated connection not only between the modules geometrically but also between the structure and site. 12 |

KENSINGTON LANEWAY STUDIO The brief for this design called for the hybridisation of two typologies to imagine a building with multiple connected programs. With this in mind, a shared studio workspace typology is combined that that of a bikeshare. Located in a laneway in Toronto’s Kensington Market, the space is designed to accommodate urban living and support community interaction. Kensington market illustrates an interesting dynamic between cars and pedestrians; a narrow sidewalk clearance means that cars, pedestrians and those using active transport often end up unsafely sharing the road. By creating a pedestrian-cyclist only zone, a space that people can occupy and use freely is created. The bike share component encourages this sharing culture whilst providing infrastructure for people to bike to and from work as necessary. The space applies sustainable design practices, as well as a community green roof in order to address issues of the built structures impact on the environment and its inhabitants. 16 |

*This project was done in collaboration with Eleanor Laffling. All images shown are created by me.

OJO NORTE-STRAWBALE SIP HOUSE This built project was undertaken as part of UofT DesignBuild group Future-Living Lab. The brief called for the design of a small single story home in North Bay, Ontario. As the group mandate is to design sustainable and affordable living solutions, extra focus was paid to these characteristics. The layout was optimised for cost savings and energy efficiency. Through research and consultancy, it was decided that straw-bale structurally insulated panels would be a desirable mode of construction. *This was a project produced as a large multi-disciplinary group of students. I played a role in designing the layout and producing detail drawings for the permit package.

TRINITY BELLWOODS COMMUNITY CENTER This project aimed to design a new community center for downtown Toronto’s Trinity Bellwoods Park. Inspiration was found in Frank Lloyd Wrights Falling Water as a structure that blends seamlessly within its natural landscape. In addition, a strong grid geometry was often the basis of his work and for this project the grid is reinterpreted. In expanding and contracting the basic geometry, a tartan grid is created that is used to articulate spaces and pathways inside the community center at Trinity Bellwoods. The structure also aims to embed itself within the landscape through materials and environmental design techniques such as compacted earth walls.

THE JUNCTION HYBRID COMPLEX This project proposes an extension to the current Bloor Go Station in Toronto’s Junction Neighborhood. A hybrid complex with multiple programs was created by adding a market place and an asylum seekers center. The architectural form embodies the concept of a layered hierarchy that starts at the urban scale and translates to the architectural design. At the urban scale the circuits represent the issue of unrestricted access to restricted access, while at the architecture level we see circuits of connectivity from public to private. The transition from public to private is translated into the spatial arrangement as a shift from the ground floor to the top. *This project was designed in collaboration with a team that consisted of Cecilia Lo , Harris Eftychiou and myself. The drawings presented here are the ones over which I had the most autonomy.

HIGHWAY PARK This project was an exercise in representation through collage with the aim to create a public space. The design acquired inspiration from Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway as the possible site for a future park. The image portrays a dense green city of the future that will no longer require large highways and thus leave the infrastructure usable as public space. Multiple images were gathered and collaged into a rendering. As the second step to this project, drawings and a physical model were completed.

HALIBURTON COUNTY

ACTIVE TRANSPORT STUDY This study was conducted as part of a work placement at the Toronto Centre for Active Transport. The Active Neighbourhoods Project aims to re-imagine and design the streets of the future as palatable to the needs of an active traveler i.e. a cyclist or a pedestrian. This particular project examined a roadway in Haliburton County. Working in collaboration with my supervisor Car Martin, I created a set of drawings and illustrations that were presented to a decision-making audience. The task was to amalgamate ideas and rough sketches created through a participatory design workshop.
