Ryerson University: Bachelor of Architectural Science

ARCH401: Design Studio VII

Instructor: Mark Cichy

Location: Toronto, ON

The mixed-used building brings life to the New Toronto neighborhood through the use of community oriented programming and dense residential spaces. Commercial spaces face and open landscape, widening the sidewalk and bringing people in from the busy Lakeshore and Islington intersection. Leasable work spaces and studios will aid the commercial growth of the area, and cultural spaces will liven the community through art and interaction. The facade consists of pre-cast panels which are parametrically oriented to optimize lighting, while reducing heat-gain in the summer.
