For the past 20 years, our industry has strived to mimic the biological to capture the life and organic forms of nature. I am excited to begin my career in a time that involves a paradigm shift in the industry from biological to geological. The shift consists of a responsibility for objectivity and a restoration of order within the chaos of our new metropolitan cities. My personal design approach embraces context, civility, history and democracy. Throughout my education, I have taken the opportunity to explore new possibilities to spatial and functional resolutions that would re-imagine a better way for people to live within the built environment.

Thefront columns providebalance and strength tothe overall design. Theclassical approach to thedesign was routed from theclients respect for theRenaissance period andclassical orders ofMichelangelo.
    • UNIONVILLEMAIN ST.GALLERYThe intentions of thisproposal was to fit intothe historicalneighborhood on Main St.in Markham.

    • One critical issue thatwas addressed within thedesign was to make theentrance fully accessiblewith a series ofscissoring ramps.

    • The building was designedas Ryerson’s graduateresidence for documentarymedia. It promotes a shiftin architecture ideology.For the past 20 years,architecture has strivedto mimic biologicalelements to capture theorganic forms of nature.This design shows ashift from biological togeological expression.The shift consistsof a responsibilityfor objectivity and arestoration of orderwithin the chaos of ournew metropolitan city.Dundas square is notunique because of itssigns; it’s unique becauseof its void. The citylives through its publicspaces and the void withinthe urban fabric activatesthe imagination of ourgrowing metropolis.B4WINTER2013RYERSONGRADUATERESIDENCEZONING DISTRICT1:100 SCALE WOOD MODELRYERSON CAMPUS KEY PLANDUNDAS SQUARE NIGHT IMAGEEXISTING SITE PLANPROGRAM DIAGRAM
    • B4WINTER2013RYERSONGRADUATERESIDENCEThere is no betteropportunity in Torontoto contrast chaos witharchitecture than Dundassquare. The site givencompletes the enclosureof Dundas square andprovides an opportunityto add a strong presencefor Ryerson University.The dramatic concept saysno to extruded floorplates and no to maximumbuilding area. The conceptalso says no to tablarasta by restoring theexisting building andproviding 3 stories ofpublic space that followthe same height as theexisting structure. Therole of this building isnot to compete with Dundassquare: it’s to completeit.DUNDAS SQUARE GOOGLE STREET VIEWSTREET SECTION
    • B4WINTER2013The concept that has comeout this process has beenthe contrast between thetruth of documentarymedia and the lies ofcommercial interests whichis Dundas square. I wantedto use the metaphor ofexposure to reflect thearchitectural expressionof this design.Dundas square is unlikeany place in Canada andhas drawn people to itfrom all over the world.It has helped Torontobecome an internationallyrecognized city and aplace where one can live,work, and play.RYERSONGRADUATERESIDENCEBEDROOM RETRACTABLE LOUVRE FACADELIVING ROOMTERRANCE NIGHT PERSPECTIVE

Toaddress the large surfacearea on the west façade, Iimplemented a retractablemetal perforated louverssystem that gives residencethe flexibility toadjust to sun exposure,temperature and privacy.The retractable nature ofthe louvers is similar tothat of theatre curtainsand creates a dynamicfaçade feature appropriatefor Dundas square.HVAC FLOOR PLAN DETAIL WALL SECTION PERSPECTIVEEXPOSED HRV SYSTEM
