LILLE TRAIN STATION 1st year “Culture of Making” studio This studio began with the study of various pecedents to learn about the structural aspects of design. In this precedent study, I disected the Lille Train Station to in order to understand the loading requirements in the structure whether it be for live loads or wind loads. From there, sectional studies were used to intrepret the kinds of tensile and compressive members that were used.

YONGE & DUNDAS 2nd year “Culture and the Metropolis” studio (University of Toronto exchange) The Culture and the Metropolis studio was an interdisciplinary studio that combined architecture, landscape and urban design students together to explore the different approaches to an urban project. The studio took the future of the city of Toronto as its subject and allowed students to discover shared concerns and solutions to the complex demands (political, social, cultural, formal, infrastructural) associated with a large scale urban project. Each student was asked to explore and document a given part of the city thoroughly and provide detailed urban and architectural scaled maps of findings using “Noli” diagrams. Here are samples of plans sections produced for the vibrant Yonge and Dundas St. area of downtown Toronto, including the Toronto Eaton’s center, Dundas Square and the Bay Atrium.

Water shield, Coontail, Elodea, Lesser duckweed, Water milfoil, Lotus, Yellow water-lily, White water-lily etc.

Submergent vegetation grown in this area may float free in the water column or may root in th pool bottom and have stems and leaves that generally stay under water. Submergent species are important for wildlife habitat and pollution removal, especially nitrates and phosphorous.

Zone 5 (Submergent Zone)

Buttonbush, Sweet flag, Water plantain, Marsh Marigold, Pickerelweed, Water sedge, Baltic rush etc.

This zone is designed as a bench within the pond to optimize emergent plants since emergent plants are important for wildlife and evapotranspiration. They also provide habitat for phytoplankton, which play an important role in nutrient removal. A wide variety of wetland species are adapted to the emergent zone.

Zone 4 (Emergent Zone)

Tall meadowrue, Blue vervain, Ironweed, Big bluestem, Canada blue-joint grass, Catepillar sedge, Horsetail, Switchgrass etc.

This zone is constantly moist and can become inundated at times. This area is prone to erosion, therefore plant establishment is vital. In addition to wet-meadow grasses, sedges, flowers and shrubs are well suted to this zone.

Zone 3 (Wet Meadow Zone)

Indigo bush, Black willow, Red-berried elder, Canada anemone, Angelica, Jewelweed, Cardinal flower, Royal fern, Blue lobelia etc.

The floodplain zone is dry unless theres is a large amount of snowmelt. Floodplain species must be adapted to extremes in hydrology: they may be inundated for periods in the spring and dry for the summer. The ability of floodplain species to handle extremes in hydrology make them well suited to the edges of wet ponds.

Zone 2 (Floodplain Zone)

Gray dogwood, Quaking aspen, Swamp white oak, High bush cranberyy, Frost aster, Lady fern, Mountain mint, Prairie alumroot etc.

Because the upland zone will never be inundated a wide variety of species are well adapted to it depending on the site conditions

Zone 1 (Upland Zone)

d

Rain water gardens are ideal for residential and small commercial sites. The system is designed to drain relatively quickely, therefore a variety of shrubs, perennial grasses and flowers can be planted. Dry and mesic-prairie species are well suited to the side slopes of the rainwater garden and wet meadow species are suited to lower portions.

RETAIL MUTUALISM Master of Architecture THESIS In nature, mutualism is a way in which two species coexist with a mutually beneficial relationship, each using specific characteristics of the other to strengthen its own existence. While progressive international retailers are increasingly shedding their uniform approach to achieve a more local brand image, Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creative class struggles to find its place amongst established retail giants. In a city that is not only unaffordable to live in but also difficult to sustain economic growth, how can one seek to find synergies between two emerging species? This thesis proposes to synthesize live, work and shop in a renovation of an existing downtown department store to foster a relationship of retail mutualism.
