About

Yannik Sigouin // Portfolio 2018

My name is Yannik Maxim Sigouin and I am currently a 2B student at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. My interests beyond architecture include weightlifting, athletics and drawing. I am fascinated in how architecture helps create a sense of community and how we can further develop the social aspects of the profession inorder to unite people. The following portfolio is a compilation of works of both architecture and design. The pieces are executed through motivation, hard work ethic and determination in my aspiration of becoming an architect. Please take the time to thoroughly look over my work as I hope to contribute to your firm.

THE BRICK LIBRARY 1B Studio | Winter 2017 Illustrator | Photoshop | Rhinoceros 5 | Lumion

The Brick Library is a modern approach at recreating a neoclassical

The Brick Library // 1B

style library on St. Clair Ave. Toronto, Canada. Exploring the diverse design strategies of brick, the material is used throughout the building to convey its limitless uses. Through the use of vaulted ceilings, arches, pillars and perferations, the building is a collaboration of both modern and classical brick style construction. Even with the use of dense and strong materials, concrete and brick, the library has an open atmosphere with these materials having a sense of transparency and weightlessness that they normally do not have. Through the exploration of brick, The Brick Library has a welcoming feel that is suited for all ages.

Creating a space where the public feels at one with the structure is what the Maker’s Space intends to portray. The structure is situated on a pre-existing parking lot with a walker’s path over looking the water front in Galt Cambridge, Canada. The intent is to maximize the public’s usage of the space through the walking path. By situating the maker’s studio on the pre-existing parking lot and having the living space over looking the water, a large scale roof is used to connect the two buildings. This strategy then establishes a threshold of which, whilst entering, creates a sense of entering the building. The roof contains many perforations of both exposed beams and voids to create different lighting patterns and openings to further define the importance of each space. The structure becomes one with the public and creates a welcoming and engaging atmosphere.

BRIDGING THE ELEMENTS 1B Building & Construction | Winter 2017 Illustrator | Photoshop | Rhinoceros 5 | Maxwell Studio Collaboration | Callum Nolan Finalist in 2016-2017 CISC Architectural Design Competition

Bridging the Elements // 1B

Located 20 miles outside of Bogota, Columbia, Tequendama Falls have recently developed a reputation as being contaminated. Although not harmful, the once-popular tourist destination is becoming increasingly obsolete. Bridging the Elements strives to revitalize the site - both ecologically and economically. Sitting at the peak of the cliffs, the structure funnels water through itself, before dispersing it around the lower platform. As the water passes under the upper level, it is run over a bed of moss, which aides in the removal of unwanted minerals.

18

On the upper level, visitors have panoramic views of the surrounding cliffs and vegetation. Meanwhile, on the lower level, the glass floor and cascading walls of water emphasize the sheer verticality of the cliff face. The two levels provide visitors with vastly different experiences, each one catering to unique elements of nature.

OASIS 1B Environmental Studies | Winter 2017 Illustrator | Photoshop | Rhinoceros 5 | Maxwell Studio Collaboration | Ethan Paddock

Located in the hot-arid climate of Joshua Tree National Park in California, U.S.A, this off grid residence comfortably houses two geologists during the course of an extended field study program. The structure has many design strategies that allow the building to be self-sustainable. These strategies help create proper ventilation, temperature control and comfortable comfort levels without the use of electrical power.

Oasis // 1B

The researched facility is located in a central region of Joshua Tree National Park, which is situated Northeast of San Diego, California. Strategically located on the western portion of a large natural rock formation in the park, this shields the research station from harsh afternoon sun as well as protect the bilding from Northwesternly winds across the dunes.

Light Study


Yannik Sigouin // Portfolio 2018

Oasis // 1B

Large windows on the north facade permit any southern light to pass through. Small windows located near the top of the building allow sun light to filter in during the winter months while being fully shaded during the summer months. The parasol roof is used to help cool the building during the summer months by creating a buffer space between the roof of the living space. The second roof helps insulate the building: any extra thermal energy that passes through will be trapped in the airspace. The bottom roof acts as a second layer of insulation. The primary hallway is located on the interior of the southern wall of the building to create a buffer space for any unwanted heat passing through the south facade. The hallway traps the unwanted thermal gain in the hallway to maintain cooler temperatures in the living, eating and working quarters. The protected courtyard draws cool eastern winds into the building for cross ventilation. Vents within the walls help pro mote cross ventilation between rooms. During the day, the nightflushed mass acts as a heat sink. Light colours, insulation, and shading help control uneccessary thermal gain during the day. At night, with windows open the courtyard draws air through the building to cool the mass. This passive cooling technique typically runs on a twelve house diurunal cycle.

Pt. 1 JANUS 2A Studio | Fall 2017

Pt. 1 Janus // 2A

Illustrator | Photoshop | Rhinoceros 5 | Model Making Collaboration | Phil Carr-Harris | Caroline Brodeur | Alina Turean | Yi Ming Wu

Whether Janus is like this because of construction or decay cannot be definitively determined. An unrelenting material industry and subverted notions of progress have created a dissonance between human life and spirituality. It is the city to an unsettling extreme in which human life is not only disconnected from nature and the ground but also the notion of life operating on levels beyond our own; individual or collective. The notion of something greater remains in the abandoned ruin yet any understanding of it remains just out of reach as the city continues to grow around it. In this unrelenting industrial expansion, humans are left to carve out their own spaces. As the scaffolding expands infinitely upwards, light becomes fragmented as it moves through the structure and is juxtaposed with the precision and solidity of the dome. Living spaces are carved out at a small human scale as needs necessitate fulfilment and the relentless superstructure is navigated through a corroding ad hoc network of bridges. A suggestion of a faรงade provides no interiority and life manifests itself in the open space of the gorge. A peripheral section of a larger city is explored through low density, simultaneously open and enclosed spaces, and enduring sensations of discomfort and being forgotten. The elements of the city come together in a network with rules of interaction that are inevitably broken and it is within these exceptions that individual and collective human identities are expressed. The ephemeral nature of the ever-expanding structure and life within it widens the division between human life as it has adapted and the suggestion of a life beyond what is immediately perceptible. Operating within the duality of spirituality, intrinsic to human nature, and the implications of living in the superstructure, life is expressed in the exceptions. This is a world of disillusionment, of lowered ambitions of space and what it can make you feel, and of uncertainty in both the physical and incorporeal worlds. Subversions of the collective ideals of a society have been reduced to the fundamental act of asserting an identity through space.

Pt. 2 REBIRTH 2A Studio | Fall 2017

Illustrator | Photoshop | Rhinoceros 5 | Maxwell Studio | Model Making

Pt. 2 Rebirth // 2A

Through antiquity, the inhabitants of Janus sought out the aspect of healing and resurrect a structure that promotes a sense of physical healing to the land. The inhabitants carve out caves to access the past vessels of spirituality and utilise the unused trusses around them to create a steel, parasitic structure that incorporates rock tie back anchors to help sustain the rock vessels. Located in the interior, many plants are on display for the inhabitants to witness; the plants are preserved and are icons of the once was. Leaching off of the main stone vessel are greenhouse pods that preserve vegetation and are the stepping stones to revitalising and healing the land.

34

The parasitic steel structure creates light wells as people enter through the caves. As one walks, up the spiral stair case, they witness a gradual change of light from the darkness of leaving the cave to almost reaching the light well at the top of the vessel. The shape of the vessel creates a large spot light in the room, casting a light beam on the displayed plants, further articulating their importance to not just the area of assemblage, but to the rest of the world.

Personal Work 2016-2018 Pencil | Pencil Crayon | White-Charcoal | Ink

I primarily enjoy using pencil crayon, water-colour and ink when designing my art work. Many of my pieces involve the amalgamation of different forms from nature. I enjoy experimenting with the combination of different things, sometimes harmonious sometimes contrasting, in order to create new, unusual forms. The uncertainty of what my creations will be is what I enjoy most about my work process.

Personnal Work

In 2018, I have recently gotten back into drawing more anatomical drawings. My love for fitness has lead me to designing physique drawings of people in the fitness industry, where I have now began to take on successful clients.
