BRIEF DESCRIPTION

Provided with a walking distance to the adjacent Ismaili Centre, the hotel is seen as almost an extension of it. In order to continuously cherish one’s spiritual mind and experience after the visit to the Ismaili Centre, the hotel provides complimentary services and amenities. A traditional Islamic Mughal Garden in the hotel courtyard provides an exceptional landscape offering a beautiful place of relaxation and tranquillity. A hint of the garden is visual upon one’s arrival at the hotel, through a spacious indoor market street, where marvellous goods are sold. This market street adds unique energy to the hotel and the guests, as it becomes a vibrant social activity hub. While their stay at the hotel, guests can maximize the benefit of startling indoor and outdoor amenities including a bathhouse, pool, health club, restaurant, ballroom and more.

Canadian Center for Architecture (CCA) Located in McCaul street downtown Toronto in a highly mixed used neighborhood, the archive’s programme is divided into public, exhibition, office and storage spaces. The entrance of the building features a cafe and an exhibition space that integrates the building with the urban neighborhood. The second floor consists of research offices and a meeting room. The skin of the exhibition room is veneered with green limestone, and the interior has white marble tile flooring, giving the space a jewel appearance. The front of the building is made of transparent milky glass with artificial illumination behind that is used to turn the building into a light box within the urban context. The design and the programmes of the building are designed to put focus on exhibition space that is enclosed by the storage rooms. This is reinforced by the two skylights that are located at the center of the exhibition and around the stone block area.

THE FIBONACCI SHELL

SSEF Competition Entry 2011 Designed by Shu Pui Lui & Tonks Chen Growing by Nature

The project is located on Conservatory Water in Central Park, New York. The shape of this steel pavillion is generated by the Fibonacci Sequence, imitating the origin and growth of all organisms. Its structure micmics that of a seashell which makes it possible for very light steel members to span acorss long distances. The skin of the structure is made of ETFE, a very light-weight material with an organic appearance that allows large surface area coverage. The structure sits above lake water, and boats can cross underneath to experience the contrast between its weight and size. The focus of this design is to integrate natural structure into steel construction application to explore new possibilities in steel design.

PREFAB L. The Sustainable Home Competition, Habitat for Humanity Designed by Shu Pui Lui & Chelsea Qiu Prefab L’s main modular concept is the (4m x 2.5m) pre-manufactured wall unit that is customizable on the interior and exterior sides using different Vinyl products, including interior veneer and exterior siding. Instead of a typical complete pre-fab box housing units that would be planted directly on the site, this modular wall concept allows a more efficient transportation process and provides volunteering labor opportunities for nearby communities and partner families to take part in building the new home. This strategy is also effectively planned for disassembly and recycling of the building. It is designed for a low-income family of 4-6 with a maximized use of passive heating and cooling strategy to maintain a comfortable and healthy lifestyle for the dwellers. Every material used in this building is carefully chosen in local stores, and the potential application of Vinyl is extensively explored in its insulation, exterior siding and interior finishes qualities. Prefab L offers a simple, decent and affordable modular housing unit solution to the Habitat Humanity Design Challenge that effectively implements environmental design strategies (details see panel 4).
