S T E P H A N I E _ Y E U N G _ 2 0 11

I began my formal architectural education several years ago, completing my Bachelor of Environmental Design at the University of Manitoba in 2006 at the age of 21. After gaining real-world experience at local firms for the following three years, I entered the Master of Architecture program from which I graduate in April, 2011. While my experiences have been challenging and comprehensive, I seek to further expand my design skills in an international context at an innovative and design-oriented firm.

Landmannalaugar, Iceland

Prior to architecture`s formal impact on my education, I was immersed in a world of botany and microbiology. Because of this, I am in pursuit of an understanding of architecture’s role as mitigator between the realms of science and art. Design, technique and formulation are concepts that span the two disciplines; within these values, I believe architecture needs to merge the aesthetic with acts of performance.

Eiffel Tower, Paris, France Travel has been an important part of my education. My experiences in Asia and Europe have broadened my understanding of how design can enrich the fabric of historical and vibrant cities when it is deeply woven into the cultural milieu. Truly good design is intertwined with the ebb and flow of a place, and responds to the genus loci of a particular locale. I have learned that only by experiencing a different city can one understand how its architecture resonates, and in turn, discover new perspectives in interpreting architecture. I strive to practice design at the international level.

12 0 2 The secondary school system in Spain is divided into two cycles and user groups. This duality allowed for two different treatments on the existing islands on our site. Each island responds to the differing needs of the two user groups.

Older students operate in a more exploratory fashion, reminiscent of the Old City grid system, whereas younger students are given more structure and predictability, like the Eixample grid. Resulting spaces were a juxtaposition between extroversion and introversion.

It was a highly publicized project given its pioneering function, location and city involvement. The design team consisted

of myself, Chito Pabustan as Project Architect and Wade Gibbs as Partner-in-Charge. I was involved with every aspect of design from beginning to its current state, all design drawings, as well as various other design-unrelated tasks.
