Collaboration with Joel Hentges

Ryerson Department of Architectural Science Collaborative Exercise
Date Exhibited
January — February 2019

Year after year, the Collaborative Exercise brings together both undergraduate and graduate students at the school to respond to a design problem which changes year to year. In 2019, DAS explored the idea of reimagining the program and their school building. The annual four-day collaborative exercise kicked off on January 7th with presentations, pin-ups and critiques with guest architects.

The working theme was building social responsibility; to imagine architectural science as a cohesive interplay between design that integrates ecology, culture, and the socio-politics of the institution in which the student body inhabits. Students strove to apply questions of global significance at the local scale by shaping the role of the institution and its relationship to society. I collaborated with Joel Hentges on the event branding. Our creative process involved taking a satellite view of the school, together with the element of the open atrium space with stairs, and interweaving the shapes to visually convey the idea of interconnectivity.

Event branding consisted of window signage, posters, and bags.
