University of Waterloo School of Architecture Rome Program Piazza S. Apollonia, 3 00153 Roma Italia September 18, 2018 To whom it may concern: I am pleased to offer a reference for Mr. Daniel Beg who successfully completed the first year of the professional program in architecture at the University of Waterloo in April 2018. I came to know him while I was a teacher in Arch 193 Design Studio in the winter term of 2018. I acted as his tutor for the period in which he was developing the design of his major first year project, a neighbourhood library with related public facilities. The project was located in the Junction area of Toronto. Both program and site were challenging, among the largest and most complex projects that I have seen in a beginning design studio. Mr. Beg selected an extremely complex site at a five-way intersection. The geometry of the site was challenging, but inspired a project that wrapped in on itself to accommodate a library, a variety of community workspaces and small courtyard gardens. The project is ambitious and sophisticated. The level of material resolution is excellent. The presentation is utterly exceptional for a first-year student. I watched Daniel’s work steadily and productively in the last weeks of the term, making consistent progress, taking advice and resolving the design issues as they arose. He is already operating at a high level in architectural design. Mr. Beg has excellent design and critical skills. He is one of the most capable students in his class. He is also multi-talented, as his portfolio demonstrates. Daniel is also a wonderful person full of good will and generosity. I recommend him with the greatest enthusiasm. Yours truly,

Eric Haldenby FRAIC Professor

Hello! My name is Daniel Beg. I am currently a student at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. I ďŹ nd myself in a space of transition in my life and am driven hour by hour to develop to my full potential. Design has a direct effect on people’s lives on all scales. I wish to cultivate my skills to help people live authentically and freely. The following is a collection of works which have acted as steps in that pursuit. Please enjoy. Daniel H. Beg

ENCOMPASS 1B DESIGN STUDIO RHINO | MAXWELL | ILLUSTRATOR | PHOTOSHOP

Encompass is set in the Junction Triangle, a community at a point of fundamental change toward creative industry and a family demographic. The library merges the classic literary library with a park, digital workspaces, and superimposed workshop and gallery to meet the complex and shifting demands of the community. The library recedes from the five-way, pedestrian unfriendly intersection by projecting its main promenade as a barrier around the interior parkscape and main entrance. With a heterotopic view of the Junction, Encompass creates a community within a community to inspire and respond to exponentially changing needs in public space.

Stack is a residence for four architecture students set in Cambridge, Ontario. With an open plan, the house partitions in limited and curated ways to call personal privacy needs into question: it promotes living in concert with peers. Perched on one side of the Galt Township valley, the building uses this natural change in altitude as room delineation; each “room’s” program dictates size and height.

Contrast

A CONTRAST (FACADE COLLAGE)

The top floor sequence begins with a back-of-house strip of circulation and bathrooms, move into a common work-space, and finally into the bedrooms. Each room has a work space with a half-wall to give sufficient privacy for focused work; however, when paired with the superimposed walkway it is also conducive to collaborative work. A shelving unit and sliding door delineates the work space from the private sleeping quarters which have a view into the valley. 2017

PERCH 1B ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN 2018 RHINO | VRAY | ILLUSTRATOR | PHOTOSHOP

COLLABORATION : GARRETT McGILL

Perch is an off-grid water pollution research station servicing the polluted Meghna River downstream from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Conscious of local vernacular materials and embodied energy, the building is constructed from prefabricated bamboo panels on a wood structure. The research station is oriented to take advantage of prevailing winds and to avoid direct sunlight for natural temperature regulation.

FLOOR PLAN (1:200)

A parasol roof, breezeway, and operable windows give the building air circulation on all sides to increase comfort by reducing latent humidity. The building is raised six meters above the river line to avoid damage due to annual Ganges flood levels. Finally, equipped with a photovoltaic grid and water collection system the building is fully self-sufficient.

COLLABORATION : GARETH BRACEWELL, ALISON MAIR, JANNA KHOLODOVA

The Aero houses are designed as affordable housing for the Cambridge, Ontario community with ease and exibility of construction in mind. Pairing two, two-person residences on one long site with a communal porch between them is a design which, when in aggregate, allows for close community living in a collective porchscape community. Similarly, the houses themselves have an open plan to facilitate communal living within. The private rooms have collapsible wall-storage units that can open to triple the mezzanine space blurring the lines between public and private.

TOTEM CISC STEEL COMPETITION 2018 RHINO | VRAY | ILLUSTRATOR | PHOTOSHOP

COLLABORATION : GARRETT McGILL

Totem is a counterpoint to nature which is distinctly human: a man-made structure that harnesses the verticality of the cliffs of Reynisfjara, Iceland, and places a perpendicular lookout to link one to an ethereal space never experienced. Transitioning from the cliff rocks above into a long, dark hallway only open to the sky, the participant is jarred by the explosion of space on the glass viewing deck where one stands among the natural spires. With a simple reinforced Vierendeel truss system, the structure cantilevers twenty metres into open air; it is tied back to bedrock underneath the inďŹ lled stone. The structure is angled slightly downward to urge one on, but also to catch and propel water for drainage into a waterfall underfoot.

Flow Model (1:50)

2018

Flow is the first phase in a 2018 Conceptual Studio which builds upon its previous projects. This model shows three interior spaces which explore and reflect the affect of select clips from cinema (Scorcese’s Goodfellas, Roeg’s Bad Timing, and Antonioni’s Zabriskie Point). The sequence flows naturally from one space to another: dodging around red curtains which reveal the walls that lie beneath, one is drawn into the oculus space with sightlines to the outside. Spatially, however, one is pulled down into a tight hallway and stair only to explode into an immaterial space where void and material are blurred. 39
