FORMOTION derives from “form” and “motion.” My architecture philosophy is that form and geometry should be experimented in order to manipulate circulation and motion, which eventually evokes a sense of emotion. This approach cannot only be applied to architectural building design, but to other realms of design spanning across various disciplines. My future research goal is to place architecture as a dynamic core that will mediate and collaborate with other creative disciplines such as the performing arts.

irish memorial museum

Fall 2016

Instructor: Prof. Eric Gauthier Partner(s): Pamela Blanco-Girard Programs: Revit, Rhino 5, AutoCAD, Vray for Rhino, Adobe Creative Suite ARCH 405 Design/Construction 3 Project Location: Montreal Irish Memorial, Griffintown Area of Site: 9,000 sqm The museum commemorate the lives lost of from the Typhus epidemic disaster of the 1850’s. The challenge of this project was to effectively design a memorial museum where visitors can be moved by emotion, while showcasing historical irish artifacts, amongst other program requirements such as a learning centre, conservation libraries, auditorium, and Irish Sports Club House on a very large scale site. Our design intention was to house these different programs strategically under one building spanning the majority of the site, creating an opportunity for a unique overall interior and exterior design that displays a strong overall concept and emotion that is consistent throughout. The main design concept was to create a “baracade” - limiting certain views where the building is beneath a fabricated topography above. This gives an opportunity to highlight certain views, creating an illusion of one being underground, limit amount of daylight and create unique lighting strategies and taking advantage of sustainable strategies in relation to the built topography. This main concept brought about creating a narrow circulation space that manipulates the movement patterns of visitors in a unique way - a sense of narrow progression and fostering curiousity of movement.

rowing community centre

Fall 2015

Instructor: Prof. David Newton Individual Work Programs: Rhino 5 AutoCAD, Vray for Rhino, Adobe Creative Suite ARCH 303 Design/Construction 1 Project Location: Le Sud Ouest Area of Site: 3,780 sqm Area of Building: 700.2 sqm The goal for the Community Rowing Center is to bridge the gap between the communty’s cultural heritage and future re-development plans of Harbourfront Vision 2025. The facility will pertain to both recreational rowers and the public as there will be optimal space and program. The general public will enjoy interior spaces such as a communal living room, a café, multiuse rooms, and a communal fitness center. Outdoor spaces include optimal bike and pedestrian paths that will line the perimeter of the site leading to the loading docks on Lachine Canal. In addition, a unique urban green park and entertainment space will be designed in the courtyard at the rear of the building. The shard concept representing the different communities and its demographics, can be found on the heavy timber “floating” canopy roof. The natural flow from the exterior to the interior, materials (wood and concrete), shapes, and natural lighting used will effectively serve the spaces and encourage communication. The building is non-imposing and non-monumental in order to emphasize the importance on the people and their activities The building interior evokes spontaneous interactions and conversations, where the building is in harmony with the canal through communal pathways and dock.

APARTMENT COMPLEX HOLES in wet mud to cool incoming air

Sara D’Amato Jingzhou Sun Instructor Prof. Avi Freidman

This location is strictly bounded by constant vehicle, public transit, and pedestrian circulation. Can an “organic” form in the complex design achieve a sense of calm by the individual? Do architecture design strategies that exhibit sustainability and bringing one closer to the natural environment change an individual’s perspective on the world and thus achieving a more peaceful state of mind. Wanting to exhibit “bio-mimicry” design tactics, we drew inspiration from termite farms specifically how they interact with the external environment and how they create their internal own environment - from outside a shell (i.e. our urban context); in contrast to the thriving interior (i.e. our design program). Horizontal circulation is achieved by each level of units, however vertical circulation is achieved through a ramping system where residents have access to each level in addition to the main elevators. As humans move forward from generation to generation, we have now come full circle with nature, where sustainable designs are our future and is key for us to fully prosper. Our sustainable design not only is derived from net-zero techniques, but also uses nature as a prime example of how we live, interchange, and create a dwelling - thus merging “biomimicry” and “sustainability” in creating a new innovation of “green” design.

Inspired by Tokyo’s homeless who reside in refrigerator boxes, our vision is to bridge the gap between design and humanity by raising awareness of the homeless issue, while inspiring collaboration toward the cause of alleviating homelessness. The PoP-Up Shelter is designed to serve as a transitional shelter that provides a portable, private, comfortable, and inspiring structure for the homeless until a permanent home is found. It is constructed using simple cardboard and steel bolts that allow for economical and recyclable efficiency. It is light-weight and easily portable for ease of transport. In addition to the materiality, the structure, mechanics, and the design is an adaption of the ancient Japanese art of paper folding; Origami, and the mechanics of the Chinese hand-held fan. Apart from use by the homeless, the functional and structural applications of the PoP-Up Shelter can be used at a larger sclae a unit deployed to provide disaster relief. The portability of the structure is used as an advantage for serving humanitarian and disaster aid.

The PoP-Up Shelter is meant as a widespread solution to homelessness. Until society works out a larger solution, widespread homelessness isn’t going away anytime soon. Ideas are needed to improve the living conditions of people right not, at the present time. Inspired by Tokyo’s homeless who reside in refrigerator boxes, our vision is to bridge the gap between design and humanity by raising awareness of the homeless issue, and inspiring collaboration toward the cause of alleviating homelessness. The PoP-Up Shelter is designed to serve as a transitional shelter that provides a portable, private, comfortable and inspiring structure for homeless people until a permanent home is found. It is constructed using simple cardboard and steel that allow for an economical and recyclable, that make it a lightweight and portable and lightweight structure. In addition to the material, the structure, mechanics, and the design is an adaptation of the ancient Japanese art of paper folding called origami and the mechanics of the Chinese hand-held fan. The advantage of implementing the PoP-Up Shelter as a solution to homelessness is that the units fold open while in use and folds down to a fraction of its size for ease of transport. Each PoP-Up Shelter can house one or two people and it folds easily and is erected in less than a minute, no assembly required. Once the shelter is damaged beyond use, its materials can entirely be recycled. Apart from use by the homeless, the functional and structural applications of the PoP-Up Shelter can remain the same or be used at a larger scale as a unit deployed to provide disaster relief.

THE 39 STEPS

Fall 2016

Volunteer Service: Set Designer & Builder Programs: AutoCAD, SketchUp Company: Players’ Theatre, McGill University Director: Oscar Lecuyer

The 39 Steps Set Design Proposal September 2016 Presented by: Sara D'Amato

Based on the “The 39 Steps” film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, this play is a comedic take on the classic mystery and suspense story. The clever wit of the screenplay transcends to the movement of the actors - fast paced and quick changes between scenes. This required the set pieces to be lightweight, mobile, and able to have multiple functions. The entire look of each Scanned by CamScanner scene needed to use as little as props and set peices as possible to create an Scanned by CamScanner environment. The overall furniture posaldesign in concept, displays a sense of non-uniformity - where not all sides are the same - reminiscent of the mystery of the story.

concept & design process

2017

Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Design Award & Competition Entry 2017 Category: Performing Arts, Style, and Scenery Design Individual Work Programs: SketchUp, AutoCAD, Rhino 5, Vray for Rhino, Adobe Creative Suite This project was inspired after viewing the film Comet (2014) directed by Sam Esmail with original score by Daniel Hart. The cinematic design along with the interchanging scenes spanning six parallel universes of a coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six year relationship, prompted a stage design concept where one design can allow different scenes to take place without the need of set changes. The design process first experimented with forced perpectives - where dramatic changes in heights, and maniplulation of forms creates the optical illusion of an expanding environment throughout each scene. This was no issue with one scene being displayed in one geometry, but to have multiple scenes in different locations and at different time frames be successful, the forced perspective geometry became more complex. Therefore, creating an overall geometric design that had elements of forced perspective and geometric manipulations gave rise to a more dramatic effect rather than placing scenes in forced perspective side-by-side. The added folding and alteration of geometry creates an uncertainty within scenes - where something is either missing, or strange, however with added lighting techniques and projections gives the audience an understanding of each environment. The goal of the design is to allow scenes to be successfully displayed either individually, simultaneously, or consecutively without the need for any prop or set changes. The overall design displays scenes as a painting - no beginning, middle, or end.
