From September to December of 2006, I completed the first core studio in the Master of Architecture Program at the University of Toronto Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design . The studio was entitled Site, Building, Tectonics. My instructors were Tom Bessai, An Te Liu, Bridgette Shim and Mason White. The brief called for a beach-side recreation facility in Santa Monica, California. My design responds to the striking confluence of ocean, hills and urbanity that exists at this location. Excerpts from my final review panels are shown below.
My work from this studio is featured on the AL&D website.
