JUNK SPACE

Creating a space which a number of families could share was the key requirement to this project. The challenge was to determine the relationship between public spaces relative to private spaces within the same building. One critical finding with this project was gradual transition in how the floor plan was laid out. It flowed from public to private at heart.

SHIPYARD

The purpose of this project was to repurpose steel structures into architecture. This project focuses on the complete overhaul of barges, which can be found retired, many places in the world. Barge hulls are mainly composed of steel, so they are the most suited choice for steel structure recycling. Inside the barge is already a well constructed steel truss system, so there is little modification required to maintain structural integrity. The site of this project is downtown Toronto.

04 OASIS

This structure is situated in Cairo, Egypt. Within the endless seas of sand, a little shelter acts as an anomalous oasis. There is a lot of ventilation to go around this building. On the north and south face are a series of large operable windows that allow for maximum direct air flow. This is the perfect oasis getaway for hot-arid Egypt. Inside the building is a pool of water to regulate interior humidity.

Many windows clad the north and south faces of the building providing optimal air circulation and transparency.

On the interior of the building is a water feature to help regulate the building humidity and keep the space cool.

THE TUBE 9

In an attempt to explain the complex transit system that is the London Underground, we created an infographic to give some basic statistics about the whole infrastructure. This graphic was made to minimize the amount of effort required to read it and maximize the information taken away.

ECOVENTION

The purpose of our proposal was to create a transparent marketplace off the New York City’s Highline that embodies its ambitions to bring the beauty and life of nature to the people. The designated site rests between two contrasting atmospheres of urban street life and green park-space, offering an opportunity to compose an experience of fluid transition. The project consisted of programs that effectively produces, services, and educates its inhabitants.

LIBRARY 789

The intent behind this project was to create a microinstitution that housed both a library and a bicycle workshop. The floating aluminum fin facade was designed in a way that sunlight would be let into the space indirectly, so the occupants would not experience any significant heat gain during the summer. On the interior of the project, there are reading pods to allow for readers to isolate themselves from the rest of the library if they so choose to. The project really focuses on the treatment of light through the faÇade

PERFORMANCE

A public space is one which communal owners of the space and general population can use. These are hard to design as they must be inviting to people, and they must also be of practical use in day to day life. In addition, there is the issue of the performer. Outdoor spaces for performers in Cambridge are a rarity. The aim of this project is to create a ground plane that is both enticing and practical for everyday use, as well as creating a dwelling for performers that reflects the same feeling that the outdoor performance space creates.

PHOTO/GRAPHIC

Throughout my career, I’ve always had some sort of fascination with photography and graphical work. I love photography because of the way it simply captures the moment. To me, photograph is like a frozen block of time forever preserved by the photographer, and there’s just something special that happens at that decisive moment when the shutter is pressed. Great graphic design moves me when it conveys a message with only the necessities. I strive to communicate drawings with the same level of brevity.
