ABOUT My name is Salina Lee and I am currently studying at University of Waterloo, School of Architecture. My first year at the University of Waterloo, School of Architecture has served as the foundation point for my learning.

A balance between reality and fantasy is needed to live out a full and happy life. The library is a space for meditation and relaxation as one immerses themselves into a delightful book. Located in downtown Toronto, in a convenient location by a church and schools, this library serves to provide a space for neighbors to take themselves to another dimension through the world of books, as well as gather as a community through the common interests within the library. A skylight in the center of the library provides a heavenly image as stacks surrounding the core puts focus on the world of books. As one enters each level of the library, they are taken into a different world though the grand reveal of the circular stacks and the curvature frame of the library.

Art is a form of meditation, and meditation is something truly needed in the everyday life. Nature has its way of painting the sky with beautiful pictures through the Northern Lights, providing a form of comfort and relaxation. Located in the mountains off Kiruna, Sweden, this research facility looks out to the northern lights and down to the city. The facility creates a comfortable atmosphere to enjoy the wonders of the earth, while still allowing researchers to better humanity with the research done at this facility. Through the beautiful night skies to the stretched-out canvas of mountains, researchers are provided with a magnificent view that delivers a sense of relaxation and meditation as they can connect themselves with the earth. Passive design strategies allow this facility to run offgrid, reflecting the purpose of being one with nature and functioning without relying on modern technology. This retreat not only serves as a research facility but also as a space for meditation, to truly bring humanity closer to nature.

The Traveler COURSE Year 1A Studio Project 3 COMPLETION October 2016

SUPERVISING PROFESSOR Rick Andreghetti

Life is incomplete without experiencing the world and the spaces around us. The experience of the space is a crucial element when designing a building, much like how experiencing the world is a given part of traveling. To maximize the circulation and the limited space provided, surfaces have been given multiple purposes, doubling up the stair landing as a counter top. By doing so, space is saved and efficiency is created, while representing the creation of life as a whole united by parts. This space creates maximum circulation by scattering the staircases so that all corners of the space are reached. This urban retreat provides an outdoor balcony at the top level, as well as comfortable social space at the lower level. Through the careful organization of the stairs, this urban retreat maximizes the efficiency in the use of space.

For the Love of Art COURSE Year 1A Studio Final Project COMPLETION April 2017

SUPERVISING PROFESSOR Donald McKay

Work has become a significant part in everyday life, where work is now necessary for living. Creating a space where living and work are interconnected allows the artist to work efficiently and live comfortably. Integrating residence and studio allows the artist to work in the comforts of home. By separating living and studio, the artist is given privacy and separation from studio work when in living quarters, and can be fully immersed in work when in the studio space. The central corridor serves as the separation marker between the two spaces, as well as the intersection between floors. The corridor reflects the connection between significant parts in life that make up the whole. The artist residence works to create an easier living style by combining everyday living and the creation of art into one standing building.

SUPERVISING PROFESSOR Terri Meyer Boake

Nature surrounds humanity with beauty and perfection and as humanity lives within the boundaries of nature, we must stop to appreciate the wonders of the world around us. The assemblage between human and nature is the foundation of human life. Focusing on the breathtaking Monarch Butterfly Migration in the Sierra Madre Mountains, this outdoor observatory brings man closer to the spectacle that nature creates. The minimalistic yet comfortable space created within the cocoon-like structure provides tourists with a spot to rest and the change to experience this spectacle from a view elevated off the ground. The smooth curves not only improve structural strength, but they also mimic the apparatus where the metamorphosis or in other words the “assembly� of a monarch butterfly happens; the cocoon. From the physical notion of erecting the modular structures to the metaphoric interpretation of bringing together the wonders of Mother Nature and the mechanics of human kind, this project is all about the assemblage between man and nature.

Juxtaposition Project Pencil on Paper

This juxtaposition of the delicate rose and the abrupt helicopter explore the significance of nature and its elements on the human society. The drawing seeks to initiate conversation about the environment and the impacts we have as humans living within a precious gift we know as the earth. Depicting the rose and helicopter at opposite scales promotes the importance of recognizing that earth is the superior, and we are merely habitants of earth, along with other animals and species.

Self Portrait Charcoal on Mylar, Mixed Media on Paper

The abnormal self portrait attempts to explore the inner personal thoughts and emotions as a layer behind the covering skin. The distorted face displays a sense of manipulation, being pulled and dragged by the norms of society, While the colorful and wild under-layer displays the fruitful and dynamic possibilities with creativity.

Salina Lee | Fall 2017 Portfolio | University of Waterloo, School of Architecture | Page 51


Freehand Sketches Pencil on Paper

Using drawings of a staircase and chair placed into a physical context to communicate societal issues present today, the staircase and chair, both everyday elements, are put into an irregular space to demonstrate the uncomfortable emotions and feeling of isolation that are present in many mental health problems and issues regarding the possible absence of morality in abortion. The staircase leading down into the forearm signifies a notion of descending into a dark and unfamiliar place, where the forearm symbolizes cutting the wrist in attempt to suicide. The drowning empty baby chair tackles the issues regarding abortion and the debate on when the child is considered a life, during fertility or after birth, and if the child is considered to be alive in the womb the sense that abortion is identical to that of murder.

Sculpture of My Intellect Plastic Spoons, Glue

The ironic juxtaposition of the flowers arranged into a hand grenade made entirely out of plastic spoons creates tension to the viewer. This sculpture communicates personal views of the world, and challenges viewers to look beyond the surface. The symbolic notion of burning the spoons to create beautiful flowers represents the world-view that behind the beauty is tragedy and decay. The irony of using roses to build the body of the hand grenade demonstrate the ignorance of society to mask true pain and suffering in order to become more socially acceptable.
