Culture and the Metropolis

From September to December of 2006, I completed the second core studio in the Master of Architecture Program at the University of Toronto Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design. The studio was entitled Culture and the Metropolis. My instructors were John Shnier, Dieter Janssen, Larry Wayne Richards and Elise Shelley. In collaboration with Piers Cunnington, Scott Keyes, Gene Mastrangli, Graham McNally and Jon Reed, I produced an exploration of the future urban development west of Square One Mall in Mississauga, Ontario. The results of this exploration, which included a 3m x 2m x 1m concept model, a 3m x 12m composite drawing, and a four minute video, are shown below.

A portion of our original installation was exhibited from May 8-12 in Mississauga City Hall as part of missisSAUGA EX: A Celebration of Culture and Metropolis.
