About Me Iâ€™m a graduate student at Laurentian University and part of the charter class of the new Laurentian Architecture school in Sudbury, Ontario. The curriculum at the school combines elements of critical design thinking, and design-build, while working with real communities and projects in Northern Ontario. As a result, I have developed a passion for unique architectural design, focused upon program and space. The experience of the architecture becomes precedent within the boundaries of structure and cost. My experience as the President of Laurentian Architecture Student Association has allowed me to engage with the growing student body and develop a supporting foundation for the school and students of Laurentian Architecture. In the rare opportunity of having spare time during school, I enjoy cooking, playing basketball, and learning new software. Currently, I have an interest in programs influencing architectural visualization (Rendering, Virtual Reality, Holograms, etc,). This has led to a unique style of architectural design and presentation using a broad range of digital skills and visual programs. Presently I am working on a few architecture competitions, as well as pursuing a co-op opportunity for the winter and summer term of 2018.

timber canyon TIMBER IN THE CITY: Urban Habitat Competition Design | Group: Hamza Adenali, Matwij Ferczak, Suvik Patel, Tony Mai | May 2016 Timber Canyon is a unique urban landscape cascading within the dense streets of New York City. This open habitat strives to celebrate, and innovate, through the use of heavy timber technologies. Situated in Manhattanâ€™s lower east side, Timber Canyon aims to restore a previous residence of Delaney Street to affordable living units. These units break down the modern social atmosphere and create a sense of suburbia within the city. Residents are able to escape the noise of the city, as well embrace the community within. The development of recreational, commercial, and cultural spaces become a catalyst for healthy community living. Capturing the cascading view of Timber Canyon, the design serves to revitalize the site as a central hub for the surrounding community.
The project incorporates four different elements into one building including the Underground Lowline Park, Essex Farmers Market, Residential Units, and Andy Warhol Museum. Combining these separate environments into one space, the project aims to revolutionize the way in which we work with timber as well revitalize an urban artifact in the form of community ecology and cultural heritage of lower east side. Introducing the use of CLT to the urban fabric of New York City. The Timber Canyon uses innovative wood construction of large CLT panels for efficiency of construction and maximum structural strength. These large CLT panels as walls create a shear wall condition on the sides of the residence.

powassan district library Laurentian Architecture Studio Design Proposal | January 2016 Powassan and District Union Library | Powassan, ON Building design, renovation, extension Project Budget - $350 000 Powassan and District Union Public Library is an intimate community space located in Northern Ontario. An active location for community programs and events, the Powassan District Union Public Library is the center of Powassanâ€™s growth and neighborhood. With increased usage of the libraryâ€™s programs and amenities, the library calls for a new renovation as well as extension to better serve its community. The redesign of the library focuses on revitalizing the library, generating spaces for different usages, while creating a unique atmosphere that invite guest into the space.
The redesign of the library is concentrated on the main level of the library, with small interventions in the basement. On the main level, the space is reorganized to create an efficient layout for different programs. Two small extensions to the front and back of the building create openings for natural light, generating intimate reading spaces that will draw more visitors to enjoy the spaces and programs of Powassan District Union Library.

sierra cascade Evolo Skyscraper Competition Design | Partner - Tony Mai | January 2016 Spanning the Yangtze River is Three Gorges Dam, the worldâ€™s largest hydroelectric dam. As part of Chinaâ€™s effort to move towards sustainable energy sources, the dam became an important solution towards fostering a cleaner environment. However, the dam had an adverse effect on the local community and ecology. Sierra Cascade responds to these issues by providing solutions for the regional community and ecosystem. Since the construction of Three Gorge Dam, the huge shift in water movement has significantly altered the Yangtze River reservoir. The result is frequent and intense flooding and landslides, making living conditions unsafe in nearby
villages. Over 1.3 million people have been displaced, in attempt to relocate and compensate for losses has been, to date, ineffective. Villagers face difficulty fitting into their new surroundings due, in part, to poor education. In addition, biospheres south of the dam now experience severe drought and a significant deterioration of natural sediment in the water. The Yangtze River is home to 600 species of plants and 300 species of animals, now at risk as their habitat is habituated altered. A projected 50% drop in delta sediments, will harm coastal fishing and downstream wetland regions.

design build sauna Laurentian Architecture Studio Design Build | Group size: 18 | April 2016 Laurentian University Sauna Design & Build Budget - $ 1 000 The Sauna was a collaborative design-build project creating unique experiences within and around its built form. Interior seating formed around the natural curvature of the human body create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Reuse of built materials form the exterior facade of the sauna, creating a beautiful protective barrier around the structure. Using the excessive moisture created within the sauna, a green roof emerges, enfolding the sauna into its natural habitat.

form Designed with the body in mind, comfort was an important factor within the design. Using the natural form of our intended clients body, the curvilinear form was created to generate a relaxed space to enjoy the sauna within.
right: interior sauna space
Developed as a personal and intimate space, the sauna acknowledges the view lines from residence looking down towards the structure. A bed of vegetation sits on top of the structure as an elevated garden for the owner.
sustainability Minimizing material waste, the sauna reuses scrap 2x2 pieces which are sanded and stained as the exterior of the sauna. The exterior facade creates a protective barrier around the sauna as well as a beautiful and environmentally conscience aesthetic.
