Toni-Ann Owens Architect Assistant
reetings! I am a graduate of the University of Technology with a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies. It is my deepest desire to continue to grow and learn within the architectural field so that I may one day achieve my goal of becoming a practicing architect. As a person who is deeply interested in the arts, I not only enjoy architecture, but also photography, music, craft and language. It is my lifeâ€™s goal to fuse my love for the arts with my entrepreneurial spirit so that I may achieve self-filfilling success.

03 Antigua Public Library St. Johnâ€™s, Antigua and Barbuda Project Type: Studio Project Project Duration: 2 months Description: The Antigua Public Library project is one designed to explore the issues faced with designing a public space for the tropics. Issues of materiality, climate, scale and relevance to urban context were all important in the design process of this project. The project seeks to form a bridge between the urban environment and the people of Antigua through innovative design techniques.
The main design generators for this project stemmed from the site analysis as well as the prelude project, f.e.m (forces, edges and memory). On site the existing guinep tree was the most noteworthy feature. It provided shade and a place to rest and as such it should be preserved. The fact that the site was at the corner of two significant streets was also important. the corner ought to be celebrated as it could assist in funneling persons into the building to be designed.In combing both the notion of the tree and the corner, there was a direct relationship. When standing at the corner looking into the site, one would be directly looking toward the tree. As such an axis was created by these two design generators.Views were also considered in the design as well with the most significant views being the ebenezer church, the st. johnâ€™s cathedral and the harbour, redcliffe quay.
Forces: the physical or perceived energy impacting the site
Edges: the physical or visual boundaries on the site Memory: tracing the landmarks or historical structures as they relate to the site
